So, welcome back to both you and to me! It has been a wee bit of time since I have posted, and I have to say that a whole lot has occurred in that time! Let me pay catch up.
First and foremost, for another 15 minutes or so, I am unemployed. I left Volunteers of America Chesapeake on Wednesday of last week, and promptly drive down to sunny Florida! You see, even though I am a New Yorker through and through, I am more than a wee bit tired of the cold and the snow.
Last year, Maryland seemed to forget that it wasn’t NY, and they was far too much white stuff. That lead me to job hunt in Florida. I have been reassured multiple times that it is very rare for snow to fall in Florida, so here I am! Sitting on the couch in my hotel room (side note: Home2 Suites by Hilton are very nice,) waiting to head to work here in Tallahassee, Fl!
I’m not going to go into the job at this time, as I want to ensure my unemployed status is a temporary thing first!
The job is obviously not the only New beginning as we have rented a house as well, a marvelous place with plenty of room for the family until we buy.
The last New beginning… it seems that I may have let myself slide into the worst shape of my life. I do have countless excuses for this, but it seems silly to waste time on those. Instead I will just mention that I weigh more than I ever have, and am wearing the largest sized clothes I ever have.
Needless to say I don’t feel good, like I do when I am in shape (though I still say round is a shape) and a new job in a new (warm) state seems like the perfect time to fix this! Both last night, and this morning I pounded out a couple of miles on the dreadmill, and had some rather bland oatmeal for breakfast. I have great plans for healthy low calorie dinners while I am here on my own, as well as days of multiple workouts. My intensity rate well need to remain fairly low, as I want to avoid being the limping new employee, but I think that nasty be a good thing with how I like to overdue my restarts.
A New Yorker in Tallahassee Florida…. If that doesn’t supply me with things to blog about than nothing will!
I will keep you updated!
