...are better than moving backward or not moving at all.
Did you ever have something in your life cause you to feel like you just slammed on the brakes, stopping your momentum? I didn't realize that was happening to me until just a few days ago. Since January, I've been busy with grad school, teaching Spin classes, and driving back and forth to school. Well, school ended, we're settled in the new place, and I'm not teaching Spin anymore (hopefully that will change soon - I have an "audition ride" coming up next weekend). So I was busy busy busy, and now I'm not. I haven't had to get in my car in days, and my internship hasn't kicked into high gear yet because it's the summer.
So what do I do? I sit on the computer and look for jobs. And boy, is it depressing. This is such an awful time for a music teacher to try to find a job in PA. So I've been really really bummed out the last few days.
But the baby steps forward are the important things here. I have acknowledged that I CANNOT sit at the computer all day and night and look for jobs that aren't there. I am going to make myself (even more) crazy. I went out to a beer tasting at the library last night and met some awesome people. I went out for a run this morning and met with a trainer this evening at my new gym. I MUST get myself out of the house and experience the awesomeness of my new city!
I'm very much an introvert, so this is totally going out of my comfort zone. But i think it's helping me to grow.
So anyway, this is rambling... here are some goals.
- drink all my water every day
- write up a workout plan and GET TO IT
- take the time to get Sparky, tracking workouts and nutrition and getting re-involved in some teams
- limit my computer time, especially time on job search websites
OOOOOOOOKAAAAAYYYY here we goooooooo!
