My stress level is much improved after making the big decision to take severence and stay home for a year. My employer doesn't know that will be my decision and I will not tell them until I get the actual notice and am formally presented with the option of relocating or taking a severance pkg. Based on the information I have, we may not be severed until this Fall, but it is a possibility of being severed in June. I would have a much better sev pkg for me if I'm severed in June b/c the new company who bought us out - their policy and pkg changes after that date to a lesser amount.
Anyway - enough about that. Because my stress level is lower, I can just feel my entire body and soul relax a little. It makes want to really slow down and make myself the priority and focus on what I need to do to improve my health. And this week I lost 2 lbs for the first time in a month. The entire month I was trying to make my decision, I didn't lose a single lb. I've also noted how I've not really felt hunger - and its awesome. I hope it stays this way! I'm eating a 30g protein shake for bfast, a lean cuisine for lunch, and a small dinner. Next I'm going to go back to my personal trainer b/c I need to incorporate that into my day.
In the meantime, I'm dreaming of what its going to be like at home. I have home projects I want to work on, some knitting and sewing projects I'd like to complete, I want to grow and maintain a nice garden and enjoy the beach. Exciting!
