Face to Face With Myself

It has been quite a while since I've written anything on this blog.  I admit, fitness has taken a back seat this month...but let me tell ya why.

I was promoted at work.  It's a job that I wanted and I'm very excited about it, but it's almost completely different from what I've been doing for the last 15 plus years.  Kind of like a whole new career.  I'm doing things I've never done in ways I've never done them before.  Instead of being responsible for my own work, I'm now responsible for supervising many others in their work.  It's new.  It's challenging.  It's...terrifying.

They say that it takes about 10,000 hours to become really good at something.  I feel as if I've already spent half that time in the past couple of weeks and sometimes I get the gawd awful feeling that I don't have a clue.  Yet...I'm pondering that putting exercise and diet on the back burner is not such a good idea.  With all the hours, all the demands during the day, stamina is more important than ever before.  I can't afford to feel sluggish, to be tired, to not feel as good as possible.

There's only one way to do that I know of.....be as healthy as possible.

At the beginning of this, I wanted health and fitness mostly for vanity reasons.  Now it has become a necessity if I want to continue pursuing the things in my life I'm aiming for, both professionally and personally.

 I've had a face to face talk with myself.  I'm back.
