So as I mentioned the stress yesterday, it just keeps getting worse. Please give me a few minutes to whine, then I'll eat my cheese with it and shut up! As I have said, I am currently on maternity leave for another week and one day. Because I had just started my job when I found out I was prego, I did not have enough time saved up to take the entire time off paid. Therefore, I had enough time to space out over my six weeks to cover the insurance costs and the rest of it was LWOP. Last week I found out that they were trying to short me two days I had "paid", I had even called to verify the amount of leave I had a couple of weeks before I went on leave so something like this would not happen!!! So today I call the head honchos to get it straightened out and get nowhere. Why did they even want me to call????? To reiterate that they were still going to screw me over? I guess so... Anyway, that's part of what is going on.
I did do pretty good today with my diet considering normally at this point I would have been eating everything in site. Each time I decided to eat something throughout the day I would question myself, am I really hungry or is this the stress talking. Hooray for me! And I found yesterday from a very special helper Jendi, that there are several events in my area I can participate in for charity and hopefully get to run my first 5K before the spring is over! http://www.active.com/ if anyone is interested. These people will be in disbelief when they see someone in the upper 200s show up at the starting line (at least I hope I will be out of the 300s by then!). LOL! I am going to follow the couch to 5k method (http://www.cto5k.com/, I think..) which she also recommended and I have a friend who has been doing this for some time now and she is getting great results as well. I think she is up to 2.5 miles after 4 months so she is taking it slowly but surely.
I did my zumba tonight and my little girl who is 2.5 yo LOVES to dance so anything that resembles dancing she wants to do. She is consitantly saying "mommy, lets do zumba!" Makes me proud to hear her say that. However, she informed me tonight that i had to pull my shirt up to show my belly like the girls do on the DVD in order to do it correctly. HAHAHA...if she only knew. Gotta love little ones and their innocence though! I can promise yall, until I am the size of the girls on the DVD with no jiggling, i will not be pulling my shirt up so yall won't have to keep your eyes covered!!!!!
Hope everyone else's journies are going well too. Weather is supposed to be in the 80's by next week so its gonna be awesome outside weather!
Until tomorrow... 8)
