The wonder of not being sore!

I can't believe it.  I thought this day would never come...

I'm actually not sore 100% of the time.  Truthfully, I'm only sore about 2% of the time - and I'm so thankful!

Doing Jillian's 30 Day Shred DVD every day (yeehaw!  I'm still 6 for 6!) so far has been a challenge.  And it might be delusional thinking, but I'm actually able to give more effort to each exercise and I don't hate her *as much* at the end of each workout as I did before.

She's beginning to grow on me.

Having said that, I'm still not ready to move to Level 2.  Level 1 still kicks my butt and I can't do a proper push up to save my life. But I'm getting better.

In other news, the phone interview that I had two weeks ago turned into an in person interview last week.  That interview has turned into a second in person interview this week (date TBD - we're playing phone tag). 

The thing is, I'm not sure I want this job or not.  It'd be more money, but I'm not sure that I like where the position would lead...which is into more sales and less engineering.  At the end of the day, I'm a nerd and enjoy numbers, charts, percentages and graphs more than most people.  I know that there may be other career paths I can enter down, but I'm trying to figure out how to ask that question in our next face-to-face meeting tactfully.

The last thing to mention here is that I've been getting some great sleep on the weekends - and I think that makes a huge difference to my mood, my eating, and my life.  I got 12 hours of sleep on both Friday and Saturday nights this past weekend...and it felt AMAZING. 

In fact, I think I'm starting to realize that I need more sleep to feel satisfied than I ever thought.  When I get more rest, I find it easier to reach for better foods or to be able to have the patience to actually judge how hungry I am before I start eating.

Healthy behaviors lead to healthy behaviors, no?

Great work! 6 for 6! Awesome. It's really tough to get the body going, let alone keeping the body going. You're rockin' it!!!!

Big hugs to your successes!!!!

Awesome! Waiting for the soreness to leave is always the hardest part! I'm glad you suffered through it!

Go on the interview... and just ask where they see the position leading. Let them tell you. And remember, just because it's offered to you doesn't mean you have to take it! :)

You. Are. Amazing.


Keep up the great work! I saw the 30 day shred video at Big Lots today and thought about picking it up for about a fraction of a second. Maybe I'll give her a whole second next time.

Great job on the Shred! I know how you feel, I couldn't believe when I woke up one day three weeks later and the p90x wasn't making my muscles and joints scream all the time! Good work! And best of luck with the job interview-you never know where just talking to someone might lead to a more 'you' kind of job!

You just reminded me that I've been avoiding the shred for some time... It's a great workout and congats to sticking with it. I agree, Level 2 is hard.
