Walking to & fro

It's Wednesday.  I've made it through another three days of work...without a single tear, I might add!  And I'm enjoying the data entry work.  It's peaceful.  I get lost in my own thoughts...the music I'm listening to.  We're allowed to wear headphones & listen to internet radio.  So I've tuned into the Glee station on Pandora.  (For those of you that don't know, in Pandora you pick an artist or genre & Pandora selects music you may like).  I must say, I love it!  It's not all Glee.  It's filled with the original versions of the Glee songs, show tunes, and stuff that sounds like it might be on Glee.   I also have a Vampire Weekend station (love them!) and Gin Blossoms (love them, too!).  It makes the day go by very nicely.  I may have to see if I can listen to books on Kendall's Nook...I think I can handle only so much music...or maybe I'll listen to motivational speakers...who knows?

It's still been a huge adjustment, this getting used to working a regular job.  My stress release has been walking.  And I've been very consistent again.  I find it to be a huge release, both physically & mentally.  I've been walking a mile on my morning & afternoon breaks & trying to walk at lunch.  Then I come home & walk Maggie a couple of miles.  Plus there are the walks a couple of times a week with Audra.  Couldn't do without those!  I've even been doing the dvd's now & again.  It appears I cannot drag my ass out of bed early enough to do them before work.  So I try to do it after I walk Maggie.  My husband has even started doing them when he gets home.  (They're really very good).  One would think that all this walking, exercising & healthy eating (with the exception of tonight) would result in the pounds I gained since I sold the store just melting away.  One would be wrong.  But I'm not giving up. 

As I sit here & type this I am feeling somewhat guilty for not doing the Year in Review class for the store yet.  I am so tired in the evenings, it's a wonder I'm not asleep by 7 pm.  (after all that walking!) I have the photos.  I have the papers & embellishments.  And this weekend I will have the pages done.  Promise.
