What's next for me
I've been waiting for over four weeks to decide what's next for me. Rather than sit and wait, I think it's time I made a plan for a few areas of my life:
- Weight loss. I started my weight loss journey without MFP and lost most of my weight through very low carb. For me at this point in my life, I don't know that very low carb is entirely sustainable. I've deviated for much of the past 7+ months and my weight has remained consistent. A few pounds up, a few pounds down. I need to figure out how I'm going to get the weight coming off again.
- Taking care of my body through exercise. I've gone from pure walking to Jillian's 30 day shred, weights and elliptical. This has definitely become more of a regular routine (outside of the past two weeks). I've lost focus here too always putting it off due to this or that.
- Determine my next career step. Being passed over for that last job still stings. I have always been the "go to" girl, not just at this job, but at every job. In this organization, there doesn't appear to be value in the person who holds it all together with their diverse knowledge. I need to figure out what skill I want to refine and work on that. What is the next step in the organization I want to shoot for?
- Combine the continued weight loss, taking care of my body and my career with my family and their needs. Maybe I'm not wonder woman, but I do want it all.
So, back to the gym and healthy eating.
More than just that -- this has been an incredible journey so far. I've learned how to take care of my body and myself. Along the way, I've met some incredible people.
