Well I ended up not running. I had to give up the gym.. I also signed up for a 6 week HIIT membership. I only made it to 2 classes.. Work was literally 6 or 7 days a week. I gained 32lbs. This was brutal.
What I sacrificed this spring and summer for work was not worth it.
My family life.. Oh man that destroyed me.
My health. Weight gain. I am now officially the most I have ever weighed in my life
Money. Lots of money. I signed up for 2 races.. I did not go because I was working and no time to train. The running class to run the marathon.. That never happened.. I was running and I was getting faster. Then the time. There was no time.. The HIIT class was alot of money.. But it seriously the hours were supposed to stop… But nope… Brutal.
And family issues.. The kids flat out Sabatoge me. It is so bizarre.. Like limited hours to go. I do not get it. One is 28 yrs old and the other is 17. They do not need me, I guess they do.. And I have never had to work these hours before. Well last June, but it was only for 3 weeks, not months on end like this year.
But I have the training schedule so I will run my marathon next year. I will also be to lose this weight more sanely and slowly now.. I am nervous to take my measurements.
I am going to do my official weigh in, photos and measurements in the morning. I am all in.. Life is always going to get in the way or actually happen. So I need to change my perspective.. I have all the tools to do this and I am all set up and ready to go. My Instagram will be both travel and fitness related.
Oh I also signed up for a class on travel writing. I just need to have something to refocus my attention away from work. And also mostly for my family to be entertained by.
I did just go on a quick trip to Las Vegas with Patrick. It really was for my mental health. 9 days away from work.Yes I felt extremely guilty.. But I really needed the break. I was falling a part from the constant stress. I am afraid to go back to work because it is so bad right now. I love my job and my customers.. This is a transition year.. It will be ok.. I will write about my trip once I get my computer set up though and I can start that class. I am hoping 2 more weeks.. So in the meantime I will be using this blog to whine about my life.
I truly need a new perspective on my life.. That eye opening conversation from the plane home was needed.. I am truly thankful for that. More on that later.. Oh and 109 degrees F. Is way too hot.
I do need a new positive outlook and a new perspective on my life and career..
