So I've been pretty AWOL, and a lot has gone on in the last couple of months which has kept me from blogging and really focusing on some of the goals I had for myself. It's not that these are all valid reasons, but sometimes it's easy to make any excuse to not do something!
I have a new job (same place, different position). I moved from being a chemist to an Inside Sales position.
I really like the job and the people, and now that I'm getting the hang of things, the stress level has gone down a lot. It was a hard decision, I loved (and still do!) the people I worked with before, but I came to the realization that I can't make decisions because of others. It was something I needed to do for myself.
My in-laws have suffered a lot of losses, many of them untimely. I love both my families and this was a really stressful time. Things are getting a little better (as good as they can), and we are starting to work on some projects to honor those members of the family that are no longer with us. Hopefully I'll be able to talk about some of them in the future.
I find myself always making excuses to not eat right, to not run, be lazy...blah blah blah. Then I get mad at myself for not doing those things, because they really do make me happy!
So... this week begins our city's Team 13 half marathon training. I love this training program and seeing all my running friends again! I'm going to take this and use it to spur myself to get back in the habit of eating better and running and doing some cross training, and trying to record it along the way.
Thanks for listening to my random rambling :)
One more new thing...meet Aurelius, the newest member of our fur family:
