Motivate Me

Long time, no update.

This is a bit of a crossover from my post on the NerdFitness forums (my username is pureleeawesome over there, if you want to find me.)

I have consistently done some mode of exercise three times a week for the last few weeks and as I had to spend my last week away from work I'll be doing it Fri-Sun this week. Starting with a walk to the post box to send of the mail for my now ex-job :)

Last week with eating lunch out was bad, considering it was my last week at the Perth office and I wanted to revisit all the places I'd eaten at before I left. Silly idea, really.
This week I have eaten lunch out only once which is impressive considering I was in Kalgoorlie for my final week of work.

The job market for my industry (mining/construction) is terrible currently. I started looking into other, more sustainable, industries that I would be interested in and started looking into Aged and Disability Care. I applied for a traineeship and went in for an interview and it looks like I've gotten in, if yesterday's mail is correct. I'll still have to prove myself with a training course and work experience but I have high hopes.

Steve's latest NF post (The State of the NF Rebellion) was inspiring. I started thinking about if I was a game, who would want to play me? (My boyfriend, badum tish!)

Seriously though, who would?

Another thing that really stuck with me was improving my bat cave and having fun with fitness.

I am at my most happiest when the environment around me is orderly. It doesn't have to be too neat or clean (I can handle a little dust) but orderly is best for my brain. I've made a pretty good effort last week in organising things, but there's a little clutter in my room and at my computer and sewing desk that could with organising.

Fun with fitness is another thing. I haven't been having fun. This one is tougher for me to answer because I'm not sure what I find fun that's a physical activity.
I do miss rollerskating. I'm not confident in my rollerskating outside abilities anymore so I would need to go back to a rink. There are two near me, so that's not too difficult but they cost $8-$10 and... and I should put it into my budget and make my health a priority. 

I need to go away and think on things for a while and decide how I am going to reach my goals.
