So, I have not worked in over a year. The last time I put my suit on for an interview, the pants were so tight they were uncomfortable. I had to lay down on the bed to do them up, then I had the whole muffin top thing happen. I was uncomfortable through the whole interview. In fact, I had two interviews like this. Ther is nothing worse than being nervous as it is, and then being uncomfortable on top of it all.
I got a call yesterday to interview this morning at 9am. So, I have done nothing with myself, so I book an appt for my eyebrows and nails just to look presentable, then I think about it on my walk last night - I sure hope my pants fit. I have been working so hard, and tracking my food, and exercising, etc....
I get up this morning, start getting ready and as I am about to get dressed I am terribly nervous at the prospect of them not fitting. I put them on, and low and behold, THEY ARE TOO BIG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not swimming in them by any means, but I put them on, and I have extra room.
Felling fantastic about this, I go to my interview. I'm in the interview and they tell me about the job, they didn't really ask a whole lot of questions. I came out not having any sense of how I did, no feeling of "I nailed it!" or "I blew it!". I was on the phone with the placement agency just after I got home telling them this when the email comes through and she reads it to me "Can you please have Christine report here at 8am on Monday morning" - Wow, what a day!

My son's birthday party was last night, and a success. I was in bed fairly early last night, but up on schedule and got all of my stretches done. I let my son sleep in as he had a migrane last night and he always has a headache the next day when he has them. We had to go and get him new shoes, so we did that this afternoon. I got him minimalist shoes, hoping is will help some of his feet problems the way it has mine. Getting ready to out for my walk with the Running Room, leaving in around 45 min, then home, shower, and off to bed!

I was out late last night (10:30pm), and as a result ended up sleeping in this morning. I am usually in be sleeping by around 9pm. I try to get up at 5am to do my hour worth of stretches. I find if I don't get up and do them at that time I am just not motivated to do them. I got up around 6:30 and watched a few shows on demand and decided to do my stretches. Am I ever glad I did, I felt so much better after doing them. It was pouring rain all morning, and I was scheduled to go for a 3k walk. After loungin around on the couch some more, my walking buddy decided not to go today because he was getting ready for his date, I decided to blow the dust off of my treadmill. I turned the TV on in the basement to the show I was watching and I walked the fastest I ever have, 3.46km (2.15 miles) in 26.25 minutes. That is an 8 minute km. When I did my race a few weeks ago, it was around a 9 minute km. I wish I could walk that fast all the time - I know it will come. I always seem to be able to go faster on the treadmill. I even did around another 20 minutes of stretcing afterward. I feel fantastic!
Now, we are getting ready to out for dinner to celebrate my son's 11th birthday. I had my husband check the internet for restaurants that have GF options, and the nutritional values posted so I can decide what to eat before we get there. I know I will be over on some of my values again today, but I won't feel bad as long as I make healthy dinner choices.
I still can't believe that I have been tracking my food, exercise and posting for a week now.

Well, I've been over on some of my daily limits, but I've remembered to log all my food and fitness. I think that is a step in the right direction. I got my scale back out and I am even measuring my portions. It's really not that much of a pain either. I find that I am still sometimes hungry after eating, but it usually goes away. I am having a really hard time eating all the carbs it sais I am supposed to. I don't think I have eaten them all once yet.

I had some health issues and could not stand or walk for any period of time, and I have had to go gluten free. I am getting back on track, training to walk a 1/2 marathon in September. I am getting back into shape, but the weight just isn't coming off. I hope I can keep posting my food intake each day, and hoping I can really utilize Spark People.com. With the support of my husband, I am sure I can do it. I have very low will power, so I am hoping it has become stronger over the past year.
Here's to a new start!
