On a Journey to Wellness

Come with me on my journey to losing weight, getting healthy and going out to meet the world head-on!

Working hard and getting trained. Plus a gorgeous view!

Today is my first official day of my new job. (I'm at a lunch break.) Sounds like my schedule is going to be full and varied. No set time off. We'll see how that plays out with my work out schedule and my desire to continue triathlon training. I'm sure I could make it work. I just have to work with what I got. My new bosses seem pretty good and I'm finally getting all my questions slowly answered. I'm sure that by June I'll understand how things work better and start a good schedule for training and food.

I also found out that when I'm with groups I eat with the groups. I read what's recommended the groups bring for meal preparation and a lot of it is NOT low glycemic. I've never been the person to say "I have dietary restrictions." but I might have to do that if I can't figure out a way to feed myself less processed food. I hate that I always have to have black and white recipes/menus and I can't do the whole substitution thing. I know myself and I know that if you give me the option to cheat and add something that I know isn't the greatest choice and/or a trigger food, I'll take that option. Sad, I know.

Things are looking bright though. I'm excited to learn my new job and I literally had the giggles and excited angsty-ness when I logged in to my work account. (I haven't had a work email since college!) LOL. I feel a little official using Outlook. Call me a dork, I don't care. LOL

Why am I so excited you ask?

Check out the view across the block from me:

Or the view of the canyon I hiked through yesterday to take this picture:
Behind me was just one of the many waterfalls I passed along the route. :)

Things are going to be figured out. I WILL get a handle of my health. I just have to treat it like a serious condition and a priority, not just something on the side. 

Go me! Go you! Go Wednesday! I'll be exhausted before you know it.
