So, here's the deal: My husband and I decided to separate and are pending a divorce, I've moved out of the house and am living back with my parents in a basement apartment.


DJShrew, I am sorry to hear that, even when circumstances are good a divorce can be very painful.



I have a new job that I love. It is all for the best but it has been a huge adjustment and I am finally coming around to it all.


Good news. I've found that when my job situation has been right with my life just about all other issues are much more manageable.


I've been in the gym still but my motivation has not been the best and I'm adjusting to working out in the mornings- getting there early enough for a full workout and cardio has been a problem. Additionally, with my new job I've had to adjust the times I eat and what I eat. I'm teaching and am not allowed to have nuts before work and am not supposed to have food in the classroom. so thats been a bitch.


I actually enjoy morning workouts, but I find it hard to move on to work the rest of the day so I know what you mean. Do you mean you aren't allowed to have nuts, even at home, before work? I read a news article a few years ago that a teenage girl with a peanut allergy died because he kissed a boy who had a peanut butter sandwich the day BEFORE. Is the school worried about that? That you might have a trace of nuts on your fingers or something like that?

Welcome back, it is nice to see an old familiar post :)

Interesting, I thought the compensation would be better in private schools.

Wow about the split. I saw it coming a while back though(gotta love a person who pays attention to people and their surroundings--go sociology. lol) Anyway.... Im too thinking about teaching. Graduating in December and then who knows.....

Getting control of everything means getting control of ones self and vice versa. Keep it up.

Man, I hope things are getting better for you. Still working out? Haven't seen you post for a little while.

Well, it's been a long time since I last posted. I'm still working out- though not with the regularity I'd like.

Things are looking up, though =) I'm moving in a month to New Hampshire (about an hour from Boston). Hoping to get back on schedule once the move is all said and done.

I'll try to be a more active member of the community.

Well, I'm all moved and mostly settled in. The place where I live has a gym but it's seriously lacking. I really wanted to avoid the extra cost of a gym membership but I think it's vital for me.

I've been searching for cheap gyms near me. Of course, planet fitness is the cheapest. I really don't want to go there!!! I found another that is fairly cheap (about $19.99/month depending), I'm going to go in tomorrow after work to check it out and see what deals they may have.

How's the new home and new gym working out? Pun intended.
