whoops, got behind again…but…I got the job!! I got a call Thurs, they wanted to hire me and started Friday. So I have been working for just over 2 weeks. Hence the lack of posts, so this will be a random sharing of highlights.
These past week of work has mostly been learning and adjusting. They are pleased with how quickly I am learning and it seems it will be a very busy job. It is a small office and everybody is pretty busy so keeps to themselves, for the most part. In between phone ringing and orders we get in a comment here or there, but mostly on my own. Sitting at a computer desk all day is another adjustment for me. I can’t say this is my favorite job I’ve ever worked, but at this point I am really, really enjoying the pay every week.
I recently got an email from RunKeeper explaining how you can manually enter runs (treadmill, ellpitcal, etc.). This is very exciting for me! I have been running in the mornings and just keep track on a calendar, now I have it on with my other runs. My goal this week is to get back into weights. I did them once and a half last week. I also joined a 10K training program and am looking forward to running with other people.
Yesterday was 2 miles and was easy for me so I helped to motivate another runner. But I need to work on myself as it gets further.
Facetiming with Reese yesterday was the highlight of my last two weeks. I miss him so very much!! I also think I got an I Love You out of him, which I know everyone has been working on.
I have tried 3 different ways to get to work. Riding my beach crusier, walking (not recommended but co-workers) and driving. Fastest is probably bike at least there since its downhill, coming home is another story. My leg shakes it hurts so good.
We just completed week 4 of Insanity! HUGE deal! We have not ever made it to even 2 weeks. I modify the exercise to what I can do and dont do as much jumping as they suggest. Can’t say I notice much change in my body other than the fact that I can do more reps or make it through the whole video.
Between the double workouts, and eating healthy (mostly) had a sweet week, but planning to get back on track. And getting more protein with Luna bars and protein shakes (not the same day), I should really start to see some changes.
I am really excited for Valentine’s Day this year. I made some Trail mix to mail to my brothers and got B a gift and had some gifts sent to our parents. Mostly heathlier items this year. B is going to make dinner for me which rarely happens. And I am going to make cupcakes for work. They like when I bring baked goods 🙂
Well, hopefully I can stick with blogging and reporting on my foods/weight goals/etc.
After I do laundry on weekend, I put together outfits and hang them in my closet so getting ready in the morning is easy. Here is a few I have come up with…
Most of my clothes are either Target, Kohls, or Old Navy. I don’t own many work clothes so have to mix and match, though had a great shopping trip at Old Navy last weekend.
