Thank you to everyone who posted and encouraged me after my dump yesterday.
You are ALL right... start small. (I am an all or nothing kind of person, so this is hard for me...)
So... here goes:
Goal #1 - get at least 5K steps per day.
I'll reassess next Monday - may need to keep working to get this one met... or maybe add another Goal.

Well, AGAIN I have been neglecting myself... my eating, my exercise - myself in general. And then it hits me like a brick wall. Like my husband calling as soon as I walked into my office this morning and asking why I was out of breath... which I should NOT have been since I'd only walked from the car... and up one flight of stairs.
Anyway, I'm here again.
I am going full steam in my new job (and I love it!) - have a real office and everything. I'm slowly making it mine and am learning the job as everyone does... one step at a time. When you're used to being a resource for people, not knowing your own job is frustrating, but it means I push myself to learn.
Eating has been horrific! I eat what I can find when I can find it. I got a cold about 3 weeks ago and my appetite went away - and has yet to come back normally... which means I skip breakfast and don't even realize it until 2-3 hours later... then I eat a granola bar or whatever is in my desk. I love the no appetite thing, but the fact that it means I'm not eating healthy items is starting to get to me.
I have gained too much weight this year... all my cute wardrobe that I built up last year does not fit... I have been struggling to find pants now... and if I miss a laundry day, I am doomed because I have JUST enough pants to make it through the week. I know... whine whine whine... really, I'm trying to kick myself in the behind. I am full of excuses and the "poor me" attitude that I know is what got me where I am... not what will get me out. But I am stuck... and I see it... and it annoys me.

So, I've checked in here from time to time to see what everyone is doing... but haven't posted because... well, I've been slacking - completely. No exercise, eating whatever... feeling HORRIBLE! I've had a lot of excuses this year - including a lot of stress for several months. But I have started a new job (and am loving it), DH has finished his final paper (yea!), kids are healthy, family is good... no excuses left... except that I am still there. You know that place. Where you are disgusted with yourself for having gained weight but still not motivated enough to get off the couch... or out of bed. Yeah, I'm there. Not happy with myself, but not motivated to DO anything about it. So here I am.
BUT, I did get in over 5000 steps daily this weekend (I was down to hitting maybe 3K)... and got the house cleaned and am feeling pretty good. So I got up this morning and make a beautiful salad for lunch... and went for a walk in the sunshine on break. Maybe, just maybe I'm moving in the right direction.

Okay, first, this has NOTHING to do with eating or exercise. It does, however, entail my personal stress level (which definitely affects eating and exercise!).
You may (or may not) recall that my program is being downsized... and I've been really up in the air on what that fully meant for me... and where I would land (hopefully, like a cat, on my feet). Fortunately, yesterday, I was offered a position I applied for and really wanted. So, my future is assured now - and it's even within my Department, though vastly different than my current position. While there is, naturally, unknowns still... at least the major unknown and the one that was really causing me stress is now resolved.
On to bigger and better (or at least different) things!
