After a pretty intimidating first week of month two of the Insanity workouts, I have to say I’m a little relieved. I was afraid my knee would start bothering me again and maybe even hurt more but I don’t feel anything like that. By the end of each of these workouts I can barely do … Continue reading A week full of distractions
Guess what I did today. I finished month one of Insanity! Honestly, I can’t even describe how I feel; I don’t really know. It’s a mix of proud, surprised, motivated, happy and tired. I’m very tired but I think that’s understandable, it’s been four very tough weeks. I haven’t skipped one day and some days … Continue reading Finished Insanity: Month 1!
I’ve got some good news, I got a job! I was worried it might take a long time because I thought I would be competing with a lot of other people. I sent many resumes but heard back from one of them for an interview pretty quickly and I got it! I’m nervous about it, … Continue reading Working hard for what I want
I made it to the end the program, I’m in the last week of Insanity Max:30! This week I will try to workout in the morning and use the stationary bike before and the treadmill after. I will have time to do that until I find a job, which will hopefully happen soon, but until … Continue reading Insanity Max: 30- Week 16
For the last year, because of the pandemic, I had been working as a shadow teacher for a few kids at their parent’s workplace. Because the kids are going back to school, today was my last day.

Ever since my … Continue reading Need more time to write
Keeping up with blogging, exercising, working and taking classes all at the same time has not been very easy so far. I was able to keep up with everything during my three week Christmas break because I was on vacation, but now that I’m back to work and working more hours than last year, it … Continue reading I can find a way to do it all
Today was the first day of work after Christmas vacation and first day of work of 2021. First days of anything after vacation are always horrible but this one wasn’t bad.

I have decided to start taking classes again. I know that I need something more than a bachelors in writing to get a a job in a field that interests me.

After work today, a few of us stayed behind to exercise. It was a nice change from exercising in my apartment. We started walking or running around the parking lot, each at our own pace. After a while we took a lap outside, around the building. It was a little scary because there were a … Continue reading Workout at work
Exercising in the morning is the best. This forces you to wake up and then you can just rest when you come home from work. This morning I finished working out before I had lunch and before I went to work, so now that I’m tired I don’t have anything to worry about, I can’t … Continue reading Morning workout

I … Continue reading When you’re alone and the elevator stops

While it feels … Continue reading Going back to work during COVID_19
