Trying to find balance..

Morning!  Happy Monday to you! 




I hope you had an amazing weekend! 


Last week went by really fast because it was the first week at my new job.  As I have mentioned before, the company that I worked for just over 12 years merged with another company.  I do work for a bank and if you are a banker and have been through a merger, you know exactly how hectic and crazy it can be. 

When I found out that the company was going to be sold, I knew immediately that some were going to lose their jobs.  I had made a conscious effort not to think about it too much but inside I knew the possibility that I could be one of the ones that would be let go. 

A few months went by and finally the big day had come where we would find out.

I knew deep down that this moment was going to happen. 

Being let go.

The day that I found out I called my dad and just cried and cried to him over the phone.  Not so much that I was being let go, but that all this time that I had put in with the company was just going to end.  Over. No more.  It was just a really sad day.  And not just for me.  There were others that were being affected as well. 

But here is the cool thing….

The next day I got up and it didn’t seem to bother me that I wasn’t being retained.  I knew that God was going to take care of me and that no matter what happened, He was still in control.  I knew that He was going to take care of me.

And that is exactly what He did!

The short of it is this…

I have a new position with the new company.

It’s closer to home.

I am working with all new co-workers.

I really really like it!!

I can’t wait to get completely trained and get going! Smile



Do you ever get frustrated with healthy eating and working out?

One of my biggest frustrations is that sometimes they are never on the same page!  The other struggle that I have been having is some of the changes that my body is going through when you age.  It’s almost like I am having to adjust and I just don’t want to! 




Part of working out and eating right is that you have to find out what works best for you.  I have seem to have forgotten how to do that.  My eating is off.  I’ve put on about 10 pounds.  My workouts are disorganized.  My sleeping, or the lack there of, is way off. 

Nothing seems to be right and it’s driving me crazy!

My body just seems to crave junk food and then when you give in, it just keeps wanting it.  And wanting it. 


Any advice would be great!



I did make this the other day and it was delicious! 


I just want to:

Eat better

eat less sugar

drink more water

sleep better

be consistent with my workouts

meal plan better

eat my veggies

organize all of the above…

Easy right??





joy in the journey


Have an amazing day!!!
