Well, Hello!

My story thus far... I was very active in my youth, played sports, was concerned about my weight in the way most silly high school girls are, but was actually pretty slim, just curvy. As the time old tale goes, I gained weight in college. Still not horrible, just a little more plump. I had been in retail all of my working years...the kind that keeps you running around all day.

Well, Hello!

My story thus far... I was very active in my youth, played sports, was concerned about my weight in the way most silly high school girls are, but was actually pretty slim, just curvy. As the time old tale goes, I gained weight in college. Still not horrible, just a little more plump. I had been in retail all of my working years...the kind that keeps you running around all day. I bounced around from 120-140 for several years until I took my most recent position as a customer service rep at a healthcare facility. I sit at a desk pretty much all day. I packed on the pounds and at my heaviest was 180. The day I was closer to 200 than 100 was my breaking point. I've used other programs, but have not had as much success or support as I have found on Spark.

I'm interested in all sorts of movies, books, art, travel, blah, blah, blah.
I went to school for fashion merchandising/design. I want to get back into that line of work. I need something more creative than what I'm doing currently. Also, something that does not keep me dealing directly with public. I've just about had my fill, haha. I live in a rural area, so changing jobs, let alone trying to start a career, is a challenge.

Glad you stopped by and I hope we can encourage each other on this crazy ride!

Cassy, I am way behind in thanking you for your comments on my blog regarding our daughter and her boyfriend. Sorry! I So appreciate what you had to say! My hubby is on the same page with me, but it can be very tricky to deal with since the boyfriend is with her 24/7 and we only see her a few times a week. The situation with your friend sounds so sad, and also a little too similar. The difference between public and private lives can be so different! emoticon

The advice on keeping it professional is what I need to do. It's hard to be quiet because all my coworkers screw around, I say one thing and everyone quiets and walks away...?? The F? But there is one girl that I get along with, and she really doesn't talk to anyone at work, I'm trying to learn from her but I'm so talkative (which is weird because I don't have friends).

"Power Bar" is something that my Zumba instructor found. I think she attended a class while visiting her sister or something like that. Anyway. You use a weight bar (we started with 10 pound) and go through a series of workout moves that are designed to tone and streighten all your major muscles. It's pretty simple, but boy can you feel those muscles developing right there in class! emoticon

I did 40 min of yoga, but no treadmill. By the time I was finished with yoga, the husband was home and we did house chores/made dinner.

My problem is staying motivated since I have no schedule right now. I will start studying again soon, but until then I'm doing projects around the house. This isn't good for my workout mindset because it's not like I Must Get It Done Now, whereas with a schedule (studying/work/etc.), I have something else in the day that takes up my time so I must get the workout in At This Time or It Won't Happen.

Random caps? Okay!

Thanks for the Goodie :) You inspired me to roll out my mat and do a little yoga/meditation (with hopefully the added bonus of motivation for the treadmill).

Putting on the sportsbra... now.
