A lot has gone on since my last update. In my last boring update, I advised that the company I have worked for 22.5 years was eliminating my role. Well, that was true and did happen as of 03/17/2023, however. I was able to land a new role with said company and that role began on 03/19/2023. For me, the role is a step up from what I was doing before plus some new and exciting things I am looking for. I accepted a role as Tech Support Analyst. Not sure everything it will entail just yet, but I am super excited to still be employed. Life continues as it has been work-wise, and things are good. I did start my training which will last a few weeks. I was excited but also nervous about the new role, but I got a great compliment from one of my managers who said, I will do great, and she thinks I am one of the smartest people to have accepted the new role. That really made my day. So, currently, things are stable on the job front.
My mental health has been good, for the most part. I have my moments but landing the new role at work has brought my stress and anxiety back down to manageable levels. That makes me happy to know that for now I have one less thing to worry about unless something else comes up. My weight loss goal is closer in sight. As of my last weight check I was sitting now at 179. That is down from the 185 I was stuck at. So, things are moving in the right direction, so that makes me happy. I still watch what I am eating most of the time. I have sweets from time to time. Not to mention other unhealthy food but it’s less. I am still going for walks, although not as I did before. I know that I need to get back out there and walk more but sometimes my anxiety takes over and I just stay inside. Also, my new shift is a little different than what I had and tends to get in the way of things, but we shall see what we can do about that. I may go for a walk today and at lunch time. Get out of here and walk for about 25 to 30 minutes.
Still “rocking” the single life. Nothing is happening on that front. But that is okay. I don’t expect much change on that front. One, I don’t work in a public off, so I can’t really “fish off the company pier”. Two, I don’t list myself on dating apps much and the ones I do I get no nibbles or bites, if I do it’s a bot or someone who I would have no interest in. At least I have my dreams. That is where things will have to stay for now.
