A New Challenge
It was definitely a Manic Monday! I was very busy! I had a job interview this morning, which although odd, went well enough for me to be offered the job. Hence the new challenges! It is VERY easy to make it to the gym every day when I only have working out and school to worry about! It will be nice though to have a routine so maybe it will be even easier to make it to the gym!?
Anyways, the reason the interview was odd is because it is for a factory job at Avery Denison (the people who make those little sticky labels for addresses and such.) My job will be applying the epoxy to the paper so they are "sticky." The lady was nice, and liked me, but said she can't see me performing this job in any way at all. In fact, she said she expects I'll only be there for a couple of months at most because it is miserable work and I don't seem like the type. I wanted to say "thanks for the pep talk lady!" But, she offered me the job anyways so I couldn't really complain. :) I figure its a job to keep me busy while I am away from JT and I'll be making money too!
After that I went to the vitamin shoppe and bought some protein and then came home and worked on a project for school for a couple hours. Then, I made my infamous trip to my far away deer-hitting class. I REALLY REALLY REALLY didn't want to go to the gym tonight... it was 830 when I got home and it was such a busy day,, but I decided to SUCK IT UP and go. And I am SO glad I did. I had an AWESOME workout. I probably could have gone all night.
I am determined to keep my motivation even working full time. This is a great chance for me to prove this is a lifestyle change and not just a phase. Maybe I'll lose weight even faster being on my feet 8 hours a day? haha
The hardest thing will probably be eating honestly. Im not sure how breaks work there etc... My dad works at Avery in a different section and gets two 20-minute breaks a night. If that is the same for me that would be plenty of time to eat - i'll just have to start packing my lunch!
Anyways, not much else for today, but when my friend posts pictures from this weekend I'll have lots more to write about . Thanks for reading!
