#walk1000miles Challenge Day 6

Friday 19th June 2015

Today was quite a sluggish day as I only ended up walking 3.60miles.

This was partly because I went for a job interview and got a new job and partly because I was feeling rather lethargic.

New Job

I was really pleased with to be offered a new job as a Sales Consultant with Everest Home Improvements and am looking forward to getting started. This is an industry I am familiar with and I am now working with the company that can legitimately claim to have the best products, as permitted by the ASA (Advertising Standards Authority).

Walk away your Troubles

This also goes to show how walking really can clear negative experiences out of your system as I have spent several days clearing out my thoughts, feelings and judgments about a previous company. I knew I needed to come to a place of neutrality with it, to take responsibility for my own decisions and stop blaming others.

Once I was truly able to come to a place of being grateful for that previous opportunity, the people involved in it and the money I earned, then I knew I was ready to move onto something new.

I realised how low my confidence and self-esteem had fallen over the last six months, which, when I had combined that with excess eating and lack of movement, had not left me in the best of places.

When I came back from the interview, Greg commented on how much more confident I looked. I felt better in myself, apart from the cold that was starting. I had suspected it was coming because my throat felt like I had “swallowed a cold.” It was probably also a case of the end of a chapter and the start of something new. This is also combined with quite an intense build up of energy for the Summer solstice on Sunday 21st June.

Short Walk Around Stationfields

We went for a short walk around the Stationfields today, but I really was dragging myself along. Greg lit the fire for me and I curled up on the sofa and went to sleep. I was in bed by 11pm and slept until 10am the next day.

3.60 miles today.

Have an awesome day.
