I took an unplanned break from blogging. And although I am not a huge fan of blogging about my personal life (being the private person that I am), I felt I had to speak on it. 2014 did not start off the way I planned or thought it would. AT ALL. A few days after the new year, I was laid off from my job. It wasn’t a complete shock and I can’t even say I was really sad about it. I had been at the same employer for six years and the company culture had changed so much, morale was low and I basically knew it was time for me to go. But before I could make my exit on my own terms, they laid me off. It wasn’t until my director and supervisor started tearing up that I teared up as well. As I walked back to my office, I really wanted to do the running man or some version of a happy dance. I felt a sense of freedom. Although I was sad I wouldn’t be coming to the same familiar place I had been coming to the past six years and I wouldn’t see the same friendly faces, I am excited to see what the future holds for me and my next career move. What that will be, I am still deciding.
In the meantime, school is keeping me crazy busy. I’m slightly obsessed with having my GPA and keeping it high (hello scholarships). Starting my unemployment, I knew that I did not want to become a complete bum and decided I needed to develop a daily schedule. I’m still trying to find a way to fit exercise into the schedule regularly. This month my roommate decided to make her own version of “March Madness” and include me in it. March Madness means we will be working out almost every day this month. (Insert scared face here) We started the T25 workout and I have to say it might be the perfect workout for me. Its only 25 minutes and after the workout my body is sore and I really feel like I’ve accomplished something for the day. I am trying really hard to stick to this workout since the time commitment is small. Hopefully I’ll see good results at the end of the month. #prayforme
I keep repeating, “Summer bodies are built in the winter.”
