Layoffs suck!

Today seemed just like any other day. That is until I signed on Facebook only to see multiple posts from so many of my friends being laid off from my former employer. So many good people. It was so hard to watch it all unfold. It is so hard to wrap my brain around why. I understand that layoffs are a part of how things happen. I am no stranger to it as I managed to survive many. As I watched the people today I just did not get it this time. So many quality individuals and I was left feeling stunned and sad. All I can do is hope they all hold their heads high and land on their feet in a better position than they were before. *hugs* to you all

Time for a Challenge

For a very long time now I have been extremely frustrated with my weight and the way I look these days. A couple of times I have attempted to do something about it by either going on a diet or pretending to start an exercise program. It is hard and to be honest I was never really willing to put in the necessary effort. I have finally gotten to the point now where I am serious about this. If you are not truly motivated to do something you will never be successful. I have given this a lot of thought over the last week. I recognize my previous downfalls and wanted to make sure I was truly ready to give this another shot. It hurts my self esteem even more when I start something like this and fail at it. It makes getting started again that much more difficult. I get on a vicious cycle and finding the motivation seems almost impossible. I was not willing to start it this time unless I dug down deep and found that motivation to keep it going longer than a few days. I think I found it and I am willing to give it a shot. Tomorrow morning seemed like a good day to start. I will fire up my new 30 EA Active challenge. I have my meal plan set. Working now on purging the house of all the junk food. Going to hit the store tomorrow to bring home some healthy food options.

Anyone interested in partnering up with me? We could compare notes and try and keep each other on track. I will have weekly updates here and we will see how it all goes. Wish me luck!
