Hello there, friends Happy August! Not only is this a new month for me…it’s a “new” for a lot of things.
Yesterday I worked my last shift as a full time employee in Whole Body at Whole Foods. It was bittersweet; I felt like I was leaving my family behind. I know I’ll be in touch with all of them – we sealed the deal with carrot cake cupcakes made by one of my managers Gluten-free, of course. I told him to email me the recipe because these were RIDICULOUS.
I am so blessed to have worked with such an awesome crew – will miss Whole Foods immensely.
BUT, I am incredibly excited (and even more nervous..) to announce that tomorrow I’ll be starting a new job tomorrow in my career field. I’ll finally have the “big girl” job that I’ve been looking for since graduating college two years ago. I am so excited to be diving into something new and different. I’ll be working the Monday through Friday grind. As unsure as I was that I’d actually get this job, I was strangely confident in myself and I really think that’s what made all the difference. I went into the interview thinking positively and rationally, I was just as truthful, honest with myself and my abilities and easy on myself. I find it so hard to listen to someone when they tell me “just be yourself,” but this time I really felt like myself – I think this is because I wasn’t trying, I was just being.
So, these changes in my schedule are obviously going to allow me to schedule my routine in a more “routine” way – if that makes any sense. I’ve been trying to wake up early everyday to prepare myself to work out before work. Hello 5am wake up calls. I purchased a few pre-workout supplements to play around with and I haven’t figured out which is my favorite quite yet, but I’ll keep you updated. I really do love being at the gym mad early…it’s pretty quiet, I feel super motivated and it’s just a great way to coast into the day ahead of me. I can fart in peace while doing squats, too.
I’ll have more time to spend with my family – a HUGE deal for me. Last weekend I spent my first weekend off in a long time with them, and I was on cloud nine the whole time. There was definitely bacon involved, too.
Off to meal prep for the week! Wish me luck
I feel confident today.
Are any of you earlybird gym-goers? Tips for me?
Peace and love!
