Much like Lisa, I’m feeling pretty burnt out right now. I’m still not working out, not eating well, not sleeping well, and feeling pretty much like I don’t have enough time or energy for anything that counts as “extra”. But exciting stuff is starting to happen, and it’s finally to the point that I can at least talk about it in non-vague terms!
Mainly, I got a new job! – Manager of League Operations for an adult sports/recreation company. So…yay! The recruitment process was kind of (overly) intense, so that’s a lot of what had me stressed out in the past few weeks. Plus, I’ve actually been dealing with it since during our vacation about 6 weeks ago…so it was a long time in the making. And then, I had to go through the next stressful part: quitting. And let me tell you, THAT wasn’t all fun and games because my boss said “So, you’re giving your notice? Oh. I thought you were going to tell me that you were pregnant!” Uhm…nope. So…maybe I need to stop eating licorice and Sour Patch Kids for lunch, and make it to the gym a little more often, if that’s how it’s gonna be…. And today, now that everyone knows, I’m starting to deal more with the goodbyes and sad faces, and that’s sucky. But, I was reminded during a phone call with my grandma last night that it’s not all bad. I said “…but it’s hard to leave. I don’t wanna make new friends!” and she said “well, there’s always good people that you’re leaving behind, but there will be good people at the new place too, so don’t worry.” And, she’s right, of course.
So, between today and May 1st…there is a LOT of stuff I need to do, so I apologize in advance if I’m MIA again, but I’m hoping that I can find some time to get back in the gym (or out on the pavement) and eat some real food and get some real sleep…and do all my work in between. And soon, I get to talk sports and running and fun stuff all day every day! So…yay for that!
