healthy and happy. one of these days.

17 December 2009


*You might want to skip over this part because it's BIG OL' whinefest and I'm even slightly irritated with myself but I just want to get it out and deal with it*

I came to the conclusion today, based on a number of factors, that I am 95% certain that I didn't get this most recent job I interviewed for. The one that I loved. That would have been almost perfect. And now I have nothing. I am feeling really really low. Tomorrow marks my one year unemployment anniversary.

In two weeks my parents are going down to Florida for four months. I'm worried I'm going to enter into some downward spiral and my eating will be destructive and out of control just like it was last year.

I think the only thing keeping me going at this point is the blog and not looking pitiful (TOO LATE) in front of all of you. I don't want to have to report eating an entire order of boneless buffalo wings, and almost an entire XL pizza - as one meal of my day. Or an entire cake. Or 5 different varieties of chinese/thai food. I could go on.

I don't want to do any of it. But when I remove myself from the blog and I'm left with just doesn't feel like I'm headed in a good direction. I haven't exercised since Monday - the only thing I can manage to keep myself from doing is eating poorly - because it's easier to eat and choose healthier foods (because, hey, at least I get to eat and I'm good at that) than to exert myself physically.

I just...I wanted so badly for this (job) to be the end of an entire year of shit (I'm leaving a lot of personal stuff out that doesn't need to be put on the internet, trust.) and start the new year on a good note. But it doesn't look that way now. And I can feel myself slipping and I hate it and the worst part is not feeling like I'm worth pulling myself out if it.

First ARE worth it! I know how frustrating being without a job can be. Ive been out of work since last May and my husband was laid off in October (neither of us have a job as yet), but I believe in him, I believe in me and I believe in God and I KNOW that something great is going to happen for us.....UNTIL THEN....Im taking care of ME! Its all I have right now besides my family! YOU ARE WORTH IT! DONT give up! On the job or your exercising/eating! Those last 2 may be exactly what pushes you forward in getting a great job, and def in feeling better about yourself! You are in my prayers!

You're not pitiful, you're going through hard times.

Keep blogging, reach out when you need help.

Since neither of us can find jobs, especially jobs that are perfect for us where potential employers seemed really interested, I propose we start our own business together. You in?

I'm sorry. I know that doesn't make it better. I wish there was something I could do help you.

This post is not a whinefest. It's real life. It's YOUR life. And that is important. Try and keep a positive attitude. You will get through this.
