Stress Will Make You Sick

Well I managed to catch something I think it is a cold all I know for sure is I feel crappy:(.

I did a short workout on Sunday and none yesterday and the rest of the week is questionable.I hate trying to "workout" when you have to work just to breathe ugh its been a long time since I actually caught a cold lucky me at least for now we still have insurance and a check coming in:)

Mike is looking hard for the next job and when I get better I am going to start looking for something as well we need the $$ on a steady basis you know?

Wish us luck. Last weeks workouts were great 14 miles plus weights and abs and the week before was 18 miles a record for me I think.

If you can workout and run do some miles for me.

The Bad Economy & My Life

Mike and I found out upon our return home on Friday that his company that he has worked at for 14 years is planning to close the plant at the end of this December short of a miracle. There main client has started producing there own plastic bottles so they don't need Constar anymore and so far the company has not found another customer to take its place so they are shutting the plant down.

Needless to say we are very upset and stressed out about this his job has been the one stable bright spot in our financial life for so long...I'm scared the job market here in Orlando is lousy. We are trying to stay positive and take this one day at a time. My husband has about 10 years left before he could draw social security he has a excellent track record and will get stellar references etc... This company is only offering 4 weeks of severance if you can believe that usually its one week for every year you have worked there.

Well I couldn't sleep or should I say I slept for 7 hours...I am feeling better with regards to my sore neck/shoulder combo I think I slept wrong on it or was tense with my husbands driving home from daddy's...we brought back a washer in our little pick up very tricky driving especially in the mountains.

My weight has already dropped down two pounds yippee! I have been jogging/walking on the treadmill inside every day since I have been back plus my eating has been stellar:) Cutting way down trying to cut out soda especially Pepsi products in light of what they are doing to Constar:(

We (I) am thankful for the advance warning we were given about the situation now its just time to see whats out there and where we will end up nothing is off limits including moving. The one bright spot right now is my eBay business is finally growing and I am making some money which I am SAVING plus we are going into our busy time of year hopefully it is all going to work out. I know God has a plan for us and his hand on us.

Thanks for listening and caring.

Back From Vacation

Got back after a long 10 hour drive yesterday was exhausted I slept almost 12 hours last night very unusual for me since entering menopause.

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting my dad and his wife Shirley the week went by too fast. I did manage to use my dads treadmill 3 days while I was there.
I tried running on it but the thin air kicked my lungs/butt bad so mostly a lot of walking briskly for about a hour each time.

I tried to eat healthy but that is VERY challenging while on vacation and yep my weight is up some hopefully a temporary situation from being off my usual food and workout schedule.

Today was aggravating at home as well they say it comes in three and I had my three today hopefully things will get better.

Got a good workout in today with a 5 minute jog/ 2 minute walk split plus abs I don't remember exactly how long it was over two miles though...

Turned another year older on October 7th now offically 46 after yesterdays drive I do feel it:)

Will catch up on every bodys blog as I can this coming week thanks for all your support and for stoping by.
