Today I took a mini-tour of my new job. OMG they don't want us to go home! I was excited about eating lunch on the patio last week. I have heard many coworkers talk about the perks of working here, but what I saw today convinced me that I am truly blessed to work here. They have an on-site fitness center that offers yoga, zumba, massages, sauna, a jacuzzi and that is just the surface. Employees get a discounted rate for all services. There is a hair salon, several gift shops, an atrium and a pond view. The restaurant (not cafeteria) serves healthy food choices. There is even a place to get manicures and pedicures. I plan on rewarding myself with a spa-cation package after my initial thirty days.
My children say I'm spoiled. They haven't seen anything yet. I plan on having a health consultation. I want to figure out a healthy plan so I can live my best life starting today. I would like to make a commitment to change my life for the better. I need to develop a full body plan. I want to eat better, exercise more and look good while doing it. The consultation is free. I plan on incorporating it with my Sparkpeople lifestyle. Once I get my schedule, I will know how to work my plan.

I began my new job on Tuesday!!! I'm learning lots of new stuff and adjusting quite well. I'm in training and learning from three people thus far. I guess I'm fortunate to get three variations of the same job. It's strange how nobody does the same task the exact same way. Sure, the job gets done, but I literally have to separate the good from the bad. I begin off-site corporate training next week. I will either be very smart or have to unlearn lots of bad habits.
The hardest part of the whole job thus far is figuring out what to wear. After wearing scrubs for the last two years I have to actually contemplate what to wear each day. I never thought I would say this, but boy, do I miss my scrubs! Besides, all my clothes prior to scrubs fit funny. They are either too big, baggy, or the wrong color. I must wear blue or black.

Friday morning started off with me telling my current employer that I was giving my two week notice. I decided against putting it in writing. I just told her flat out. It was a growth opportunity and a learning experience, not a pleasant working situation. I will be working at a local hospital where I can grow and be the best CC I can be. I will have to learn a lot on the new job, but it will be more than worth it in the long run.
I attended a Women's Conference at a local sister church this weekend. I learned so much. It was all about women (sisters) mentoring each other. I purchased some great books and met some wonderful women. I networked and may have a few ladies lined up to speak in the future.
I have to take my drug test and do lots of paperwork this week for my new job. I have officially accepted the position. I'm registered for my orientation classes and must take my on-line pre-test. I will be very busy this week. My doctor posted my (current) job on Craigslist and applicants began calling and responding immediately. I suppose I will be training my replacement as early as the end of the week or early next week. I am also doing a candy buffet for a wedding and must organize and get the display together. I will be drinking plenty of water and eating my freggies this week.
