Undoing the Stress
Ok, so last night I put in my 2 weeks notice at work. I love this job...delivering babies, what could be a better job? But working nights (6pm-6am) two nights a week on top of having to take care of my kids and doing house work... it just kills me. I feel like I can never catch up on sleep. I fall asleep just sitting on the couch in the middle of a movie... or as soon as hubby gets home I go to bed... what kind of life is that. Besides all that, hubby and I sat down and worked out the math. Because he has to leave work early on the days I have to work.. and then does not get to work until later the next morning... we are actually coming out under. He makes so much more then I do, so it is actually pointless for me to be doing this. My goal now? To continue my schooling... get my Paramedic... so that when the girls are in school I can return to work on an ambulance.. or in the ER.
As for the diet... I have to say that last night was the first night of work that I did not snack and munch all night long. So I feel pretty good this morning. I have been drinking a ton of water... the fact that its been 100 degrees outside has probably helped that too. I have quite a bit of work to do this morning... mostly in the yard. ugh. We have an appraiser coming ... and yes, I am exhausted.
Exercise... today I am hoping, again, to get a bike ride in. Maybe while the appraiser is here! I also have a Pilates dvd that I want to do to... maybe tonight... and I am going to try all those great ab workouts you guys mentioned!!
Find your focus!
