Washed By the Water - Needtobreathe

5 GRATITUDES (Thank you, Heavenly Papa!):
  • Thank you God for getting my workout done!
  • Thank you God Wal-Mart had boys dress shoes for reasonably priced.
  • Thank you God I got the majority of my work done early.
  • Thank you God I eventually got all my work done despite the obstacles.
  • Thank you God You are my Healer.
  • Made a few phones calls for my husband regarding job stuff follow-up.  Just some really lame stuff happening.  Apparently he didn't get one job that the co-founded wanted to interview him for but we believe the recruiter dropped the ball, so they hired someone else instead because they didn't get to interview my husband.  However, they still have the job listed, so I am going to contact their human resources tomorrow to see if the job is actually filled and if not, then for my husband to bypass the recruiter.  And, I essentially by passed the other recruiter calling the company myself regarding a different company because something about their job application online not working properly.
  • I guess my too assertive mode offended my husband regarding the job stuff and he feels so pressured about stuff.  It's a challenge because I work a lot, nearly 7 days a week and he's the one that is getting bites and interviews, and hardly anything for me.  Well, I am going to be patient and let God work, but in the meantime, I'm just going to have to work more myself.  It's been really hard.
  • Stressful day with my husband regarding job stuff.  Stressful day regarding stuff with the kids.  Calgon, take me away.

Notes:   My husband has been reminding me that I need to get back to my workouts.  He's right.  I am going to work on getting to bed early enough so I get enough sleep and then wake up without going back to sleep.  And I am going to schedule my workouts like appointments on my calendar.  This week, 2 workouts.

The laptop I was using, my husband's Dell, was freezing and I didn't get a change to look at the video before doing the workout, so I didn't use any weights on the 3rd exercise.

I've had this bad headache, but after this workout, it greatly reduced.

Though I had a bar before the workout, I felt really shaky after this workout.  Low blood sugar.  I was bumping into things and dropping things, very clumsy.
