I’m not very upset by my weigh in from after the vacation. It happens, right? And besides, I hopped on the scale again today and I was already down a bit. I’ve learned in my journey that my weight as the scale tells me is only one indicator of my health. Its not the end all be all of my health (even if health insurance companies think it is!).
I’ve been a bit frustrated the last few days since I’ve been home. I have been looking for a full time job (like soo many other unemployed people right now) and coming up empty every time. I’m very tempted to just give up and pretend that only working part time is enough for me. Its not that I don’t want to work: I do! I love to work! I have a great work ethic and enjoy being productive. Its just that I HATE looking for work. Looking for work is sometimes more work and a million times less fulfilling. I’d almost rather go apply at McDonalds and accept the minimum wage existence that would give me then keep looking for jobs I can’t find and can’t get. I wish I could just find some more writing gigs (I would love to write regularly for a blog that pays) or even find something full time as an admin assistant (virtual or reality based). I just wish the looking for work part was over and I could focus on learning and then exceling at my job.
Other than the frustrations from the job search life is actually really nice right now. I did just go to Puerto Rico (benefit of being part time = taking off work is easier) and I’m starting to meet more people in the town that I am in. I’m ready to get back into the swing of things at work as well as working out again. I was surprisingly lazy on my vacation and can’t wait to get my body back to moving. Its hurting for a good workout! If I hadn’t been so busy today with tweetups and errands for my family I could have got a good one in. I’ll have to settle for some pushups, situps, squats, lunges, and stretching before bed.
