Thank you for all your sweet comments from my last post! I know that I made the right decision last weekend, and my wounds are healing pretty well since I’ve been laying low.
I started my new job Tuesday, and so far I have come home cross-eyed with a horrible headache EVERY night. I’m guessing this is b/c I’m not used to staring a computer for more than 9 hours straight a day working with a specific software. It is a little crazy and overwhelming, but I’m really enjoying my work, so all is good. Today was the best out of all 3 days so far, and I’m guessing that I’m “building the endurance” to do this.
I feel absolutely horrible b/c I’ve missed both my masters swims and a group run this week b/c of these headaches and just overall “brain hurting” from learning a massive amount of information at once. When I get home, I literally just want to veg on the couch all night since I’ve been getting up at 5am for weights before work. It has been a little crazy because of this. I guess I didn’t expect to feel like crap and so mentally drained when I started my job? Like I said before, it is getting better. At least now I know what to expect, and I plan on moving some workouts around to accommodate my work schedule and teaching schedule a little better.
This weekend, I’ve got crazy training on the docket since the last 3 days I’ve done nothing but weights. I also have sleep on the to-do list!! Plus, studying for my job! Yes, I have to study for my job. 😉 Heh.
And… gardening, cleaning, running errands, teaching, etc. Hmmm. I hope I can fit a nap in there somewhere this weekend. 🙂
