I got the job! AND they offered me what I was expecting, so it was good news. I have to go in tomorrow afternoon to meet with them. I don't officially start until the 21st, but I need to go in a few days to get acquainted with the projects I'll be taking over and to meet some of the people I'll be working with. Since it's filling in for a maternity leave, I need to get up to speed as soon as possible in case the baby decides to come sooner!
But now that starting the second job is looming... my stomach is in knots worrying about keeping myself in line working two jobs. I was always a desk snacker. You know the person that sits at their desk and you can hear the crinkling of snack wrappers coming from their cube all day... that was me! (lol) Even if I end up snacking on healthier things, it can add up!
I plan to track ahead of time, pre-package meals and snacks, and avoid temptation at all costs. (Eek! Vendors bringing in cookies and donuts. Lunch meetings always involve pizza. Torture!!) I just can't go back to the awful processed foods of my past - Lean Cuisines are yummy, but don't even keep me full for 5 minutes after I eat them! Maybe batch cooking a bit. :)
I realize that this is burning my candle at both ends... keeping up with workouts will be killer with two jobs. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get out of the house more and get a steady income from a part-time job. Hopefully this will help with some of the house and vehicle repairs we have been holding off on, not to mention the holidays and related expenses.
So does anybody have any tips or secrets that help to stay on track with working a lot, busy life, etc? I've been SPOILED with self-employment and the ability to cook fresh meals breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. I certainly don't think I'll have as much time on SparkPeople to plan, but I'll try my best!
Here's hoping that it's great week for you all!
