4 in the morn...

Trying to figure out when to work in my much needed gym time! I have a new schedule with my great new job. I work from 7 am to 3pm. It is pretty great actually! I do not have to deal with as much traffic in my work commute...which is good, cuz I am known to get hit with a dose of road rage every now and again. Before starting this new schedule... I thought how great it will be to go to the gym in the afternoon. I tried it out a couple of times last week...but I was not the biggest fan of that time. I have been an early bird at the gym since January of this year... I like earlier! There is less people, more machines, quicker workout, and I feel like it is more of me time. In the afternoon... I feel as if I am just shoving the workout in! In the afternoon I doddle a lot more, and am super tired from work. All I wanna do is crawl in my bed and sleep sleep sleep. So I decided to try on the early bird shift again...
which means
4 a.m. !!!

I am beginning to get the hang of it.. 4a.m. comes mighty early...but I love having my workout done for the day! It's a glorious feeling! Yes... I am so darn tired right now... but I can take a nap when I get home if I feel so inclined. Love that!!!

p.s. made it to the gym at 4 a.m. yesterday... but the gym was NOT ready for me :( They are open 24 hours.. except for Mondays... when they open at 5a.m.!!! I had to learn that the difficult way!!!

I have a love/hate relationship with CHANGE!!! Think about it... no one just kinda likes change! It is either one extreme or the other. For me it depends on the change...and if I wanted it or not.

Well...I am LOVIN change these days! I left my job as a DCFS social worker to become a paid intern as a high school guidence counselor! I am pretty darn excited about this new adventure. I was in defenite need of this change. I was completely BURNED out as a social worker. There was a day when I loved my job...that day has left me long ago. I knew I needed a change for a while...but the change I was looking for was not falling into place...so I just kept hanging on!

I am grateful I did...because the change came! It not only came in the nick of time...but it is the miracle of my life these days.

Someone was lookin out for me and holdin off on this change...when I would deeply appreciate it!
