Hey my dear readers!
I updated my personal blog Corner of Confessions and i wanted to share that here. I didn’t want to simply reblog it cause I wanted to add a little health related information to this blog. So here is the link to my personal blog’s latest entry( though most of you already follow that blog too).
In health related news , I just wanted to let everyone know I have been doing better with my eating habits. I’ve been working hard and time managing better so I make sure to eat something with my morning coffee before work. My days off, I have been eating 3 square meals. Next week when i go food shopping I’m investing in those health drinks and smoothie drinks and will be taking it to work to have on my meal breaks. So, I’m taking steps to getting back on the healthy train and fix my metabolism again.
My new struggle is finding the desire to work out again. I’ve been having two or three days off in a row. The first day off , i do all the outside errands ( bank, dollar store, supermarket, bodega, pharmacy etc). Then the second day off i play catch up on all the cleaning and house chores. If i have I third day off, like today, I try my best to invest a chuck of it into my blog and facebook and email and phone calls and texting… reconnecting with friends and family….and my TV. Catching up on all my shows. But most importantly spending time with the hubby and my doggie. Today I will be giving my doggie a bath and brushing her teeth and cleaning her ears. I just finished this big breakfast adventure with the hubby. Made coffee, scrambled eggs, hash browns and spam. So stuffed. Took forever to clean up the kitchen. I’m now boiling chicken for my doggie and just took out chicken to defrost for dinner for the hubby. I will be seasoning them in an hour or two when they are defrosted and then figure out a side for the chicken for the hubby. The past couple of days I have also been Christmas shopping. I just need to get a toy for my niece to go with the clothes I got her and something a little extra to supplement the long sleeve thermal graphic tee i got my brother. I wish i had more funds, but I set a budget and i got everyone a little something..and item or two. Nothing pricey or crazy money.
The problem is… i like this domesticated stuff. I like spending the time with my man and my dog. I like being home. I miss them so much when I’m working. And honestly? Work has been kind of strenuous. My arms are just starting to feel normal again on the third day off. Thanks to phase one of my diet I have ALOT more stamina than i used too… so work hasn’t been hard for me physically. Just using muscles i never used and with my job it isnt your typical retail store… we have to be doing something at all times. I’ve cleaned, I’ve done stock, I’ve done new displays, I’ve been the folder, the hanger up-er and Ive been the return person ( put back all the stuff people dumped around the store or at the register) and worked the register…all in the same shift. I like my job. I like the activity. It’s also mentally exhausting cause we have to stay alert at all times, paying attention to customers, staying aware ( look out for thieves) and especially on the register( dealing with money)But, i do feel quite tired after a days of work. I felt my arms today and I’m starting to get little muscles!
I have to mentally pep talk myself into working out again. So that’s the next step. But, i haven’t been too upset about it because like i said my job is active. I’m not laying in bed all day on my day off either. So i’m content. But, i don’t want to be content. I want to strive for better… just better living and health. So that’s next on the list to tackle.
I just want to thank you all for baring with me. I know it’s taking me awhile to get back on track, but I’m getting there! I’m very honored you all are patiently waiting and encouraging me along.
