A little bit of limbo...

I'll let you in on a little secret...  After 25 years in the banking industry, I turned in my notice so that CR and I can go into business for ourselves.  I'll have to save the specifics for later but just know that we are very excited!  He has some really odd hours so it will be nice for us to synch up our schedules a bit.  I kind of think that is one of the things we are most excited about - we'll get to see each other more than an hour a day.  

My last day in my current job is May 15th which makes me feel like I am in a weird limbo of sorts.  I am not sure what my schedule will be after the 15th which makes it hard for me to plan and, Lord knows, I love a good plan.

It really makes no sense but the job change is impacting my workouts.  I can't seem to make myself get with the program.  I have been swimming pretty consistently and doing a few things here and there but I don't feel like I am doing enough.  In my mind, I keep hearing that voice saying "let's just wait until after the 15th".  Does that make sense to anyone?  Why can't I just keep working out as if nothing is going to change and then switch it up after the 15th?  I have such issues.

It is a strange feeling to leave the security of a job I have been in for so long.  I keep telling myself that you can't make big gains if you don't take risks.  They are having a luncheon for me tomorrow.  Hopefully there will be cake....  I'll add "cutting back on desserts" to my 'To Do After the 15th List'.    :)

Congratulations on making such a huge decision. It's scary running a business by yourself but it's incredibly rewarding too. I hope things work out really well for you and your husband.

That is great and I have lots of respect for you for taking the step. We hope to do the same one day.

I would be anxious about the change and "things being up in the air" too. You're brave! I hope your plan works out well and soon so you can go back to feeling "normal" :)

Good for you and your hubby! If you don't take a risk and try something, you'll always wonder "what if".

First - congratulations! That's a big scary move, but I have no doubt you'll do great.

In terms of working out - I totally understand. I was told I was being laid off and even though I don't have an end date it really put me in to a tail spin and I can't seem to do a workout to save myself. Then I've started hunting for a new job and every time an appt comes up I find that it stresses me out so much that I forego working out.

I'm trying to figure out how to deal with it all and get back on track so I do understand what you mean, but I know that you'll get back on track and rock your workouts very soon!

Congrats... I remember leaving the bank to own my own company and I'll tell you - it wasn't easy to get into the groove at first. But it came with time... I made it work for me. And now I wouldn't give it back for any amount of money.

I'm excited for you - and I told Tom about things... we're planning on making a trip up!

Have a good day tomorrow... will be thinking about you!

You gave me quite a laugh! Training for a half ironman! Can you take 7 hours for the swim? Still laughing. I am so freaked over the sprint. That's plenty!
