It’s true. I realise I’ve been gone for quite some time and the only reason I can give you all is that I was abducted by aliens. Do you believe me? No, well I wouldn’t either.
Okay, so the truth is, I was slack. I’ve been pretty slack in a few aspects of my life. I lost my mojo, went looking for it, couldn’t find it and just couldn’t get back into eating healthy, exercising or blogging. I felt like a big fat failure, and who wants to blog about that? So what’s been going on since April you ask? Okay, so here’s the quick re-cap.
I got fired from my job – the one that I was really hating. I was looking for work elsewhere, but the boss beat me to it and fired me first. He’s made a few harsh (and very, very inaccurate) accusations and I’m pretty much just keeping myself far away from him (which is turning out surprisingly easy, even for a small town). I know that I did nothing wrong, and that my work was up to scratch, and I sleep fine at night. So to be honest, I’m quite happy to be out of that place. I hadn’t really written much about it, but I was so sad and depressed at that place I was working, I hated it. But, good news is, I was only between jobs for one day. I got fired, left on the Thursday, had an interview on the Friday and then started a new job on the Monday.
Took me a while to settle into that place, but I eventually did, just in time to move onto another job. I was torn about leaving this other place. I was finally settling in, and making some great friends – friends I will now cherish for life – but this other position was back with Government. And the government will give me paid maternity leave, which this other place just couldn’t do, so in the end that was the winning decision. So now I’m back with government. Not pregnant, but at least I now have maternity leave when I finally need it.
Now, about this eating healthy and exercising thing. Well, the truth is, I haven’t really been doing either of these things. I’ve let my eating slip back into old habits and I’ve been ignoring that little voice in my head that says to me every time I put something bad in my mouth that I shouldn’t be doing this. Then I ignore that little voice in the back of my head that says I should get up off the couch and exercise. I’ve ignored both these voices so much, that I’ve managed to put back on 3kg. Although, looking at my last weigh in figure, I’ve actually only put on 1kg since my last weigh in back in March. Hmmm I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not.
So this is me, back again and ready to get back into healthy eating, exercising and just generally being happy and enjoying life again. Oh, and I plan on getting back into blogging again, and maybe adding in some posts about new and exciting adventures (such as crochet club – oh yes, I am part of a crochet club and you know what, it’s freaking awesome!) and some more posts about quilting, and possibly, quite possibly, more posts with photo goodness, because, well I just spent my tax return on a great camera, so now I need to learn to use it and I need to start doing something with all the photos I take, so they’re probably going to end up here. I just started to realise that there has to be more to my life than just eating healthy and exercising.
God, it feels great to have blogged again. I’ve missed this, and I’ve missed you all. I’m back babbyyyyyyy 🙂
