Figuring it all out one day at a time

Yoga helps with the posture but the never ending self awareness get's old. I am much too boring. And the constant checking in is prone to provoke complaints. If it was all good then what would I need it for? But it isn't and so it begins, head - is it straight, or is it leaning left like it does from time to time? Torso - long? could be longer - yes? uh oh, too much length, upper back is whining..
and it goes on and on

Swimming is just plain fun but its hard to see improvements. Seeing as it's only been a couple of months I think maybe I should give it a little more time.
Crossfit/weight lifting - easy to over do it, easy to get hurt but boy oh boy does it rock!
Spin class - like crossfit, just need to find one that works with the schedule

Missing crossfit
Lifting heavy weights, deadlifts
Pullups - really would like to do some once more
kettlebells - nifty workout tools

time for another whole new me. seems I do this periodically, last time was in my early 30s, divorced and fired. Encouraged by a boyfriend to go back to school and I didn't stop till I had a masters and a whole new career.

Now I'm just bored. Work used to seem important and it is still important but the leadership is just a little bit silly and the implementation/expectations are insane. I helped out my employer plenty last year and I'm not seeing any help coming back my way. No raise, probably a continued pay cut, no opportunity for advancement, no tuition reimbursement... nada damn thing.

But it's still a good paying job and I get to go to work with the hubby and the work isn't completely pointless and my colleagues are a good bunch and I can take public transit to work. so making a work change isn't really high on the list.

instead it is time to get crazy healthy!!!!

The initiative started last year with line dancing on Tuesdays - very, very fun. Added a super slow routine (thank you groupon) in May - actually managed to replicate it at the health club at least twice a week for awhile. Not bad. Then in November Crossfit onramp. I had no idea what I was getting into - just thought it'd be some organized thing to do 3 times a week between thanksgiving and Christmas. OMG - what a difference.
