Finally a few hours to myself!

Monday, March 05, 2012

I have been at my new job for over a week now. It has been so busy at work - I have been working a lot! There is a lot of work to do at the tax office. At least the time goes by pretty fast because there is so much to do. Last week two days I worked 830a-730 at night. I also worked on Saturday for 6 hours. Eeeep. I am definitely not used to working so much! At least the late nights are only until tax season is over!

I still feel nervous about the job. The job isn't really hard, it just seems really important to me because it is individual and corporate tax returns I am working with! I am a bit more relaxed now that I have a better understanding of what I am doing. Hopefully this week will be even better!

My eating schedule has been so off. I have been getting up at 630 every morning when my fiance gets home from work. It is hard getting up that early! It makes me want to go to bed super early too haha. I eat something for breakfast, then don't eat lunch until 1 or so. I should drink more water and have more snacks in between eating, but I just feel so focused on work. I don't feel comfortable there yet, so I don't think about taking breaks. I should! I don't want to overwork myself!

My fiance is working a lot of overtime this week, so I really won't see him. I got done work at 6 today, and he started 2 hours early booo. That stinks! At least I get time to myself now. I did some laundry, and I am just catching up on some shows now. I didn't eat enough today grrr. I guess I need to eat something else before bed!

    My husband and I work different hours. Have been since before we were married. It can be difficult to adjust, but you'll find your flow. Personally I like having a day or two off when he's working. It gives me time to do things - either do things I want to do, or do things the way I would do them! LOL!

Bring a few granola bars or something small like that in your purse. Then you can just take a quick break at your desk and not feel too guilty! And of course always have your favorite water bottle by your side (your blog had me reaching for mine which is almost empty!)

Keep it up!

Finally starting a new job and I lost a couple pounds!

Sunday, February 26, 2012

Last week was so stressful at work. I had a second interview, and I was really hoping I would get that new job. They even called me the same night to tell me I got the position! I was soo happy. I still am! I am starting tomorrow night. They are doing some training tomorrow night, Tuesday night, and then I officially start on Wednesday morning. It is going to be so strange because of the extra hours. My new schedule will be 830-530, but I will be doing overtime because it is tax season. I will probably be working until 7 or 8 every night. I will also be working on Saturdays for a few hours until tax season is over. That will definitely be hard for me!

Today I went and had a bridesmaids day. Two of them ordered their gowns, and then we went to lunch. We also looked at shoes they could wear. The best part of the day was definitely going to the Toy Store hahaha. I had a great weekend. I am nervous about starting the new job tomorrow night. It doesn't seem too HARD, I just feel really anxious because I will be working with tax returns. I won't be processing them, but I still don't want to mess any of them up!

I got on the scale, and was down to 194. Yay! I am officially counting it because I was 194 last week also. Yippee. I can't wait until I hit 185 and will not be Obese anymore according to the BMI. I really can't wait until 155, but I know I have to wait! I hope the new job won't mess up too much with my lunch schedule. I will actually be getting a full hour for lunch. I won't know what to do! I normally just worked through lunch and left the office to go get something for lunch maybe twice a month.

Happy Monday!

Monday, February 20, 2012

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was pretty good.

My FH and I went out to dinner Friday night to celebrate Valentines. I had the grilled lasagna. mmm it was good and it didn't hurt my tummy. I know it wasn't very healthy, but I don't mind. I am just glad my stomach didn't react badly to it!

Today is an awful day at work so far. I just want to go back home! Actually I would probably go shopping for some new shirts, and then go home haha.

I really need to go to the gym. I went for a short walk with the puppy yesterday because the weather was pretty nice, but I still need to get my butt to the gym!

Happy Valentines & Happy Tuesday!

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Tonight I am going to my parent's house for dinner. I like going to see them once a week or every two weeks. I talk to my Mom in email every work day and call them a couple times a week. My Dad is OK I guess. He is home, but doesn't like to talk about how he is feeling. He is still smoking... nothing I can do about it though. I am just trying to show him I care as much as I can!

I won't be celebrating Valentines with my fiance tonight because of his schedule. We may be going out on Friday night, but I am not sure yet. He is usually off Thurs and Fri night but he is working Thursday night as another overtime shift so, who knows if he will be off on Friday!

Maybe next week I will start going back to the gym. I really need to go. My cold is ALMOST done. I can actually smell again! My one co-worker picked up McDonalds for his lunch... mmmm fries! It smelled so good haha.

I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the day!

    Happy Valentine's Day!

I didn't get to see my husband much today either. But in our case, its because I'm the one working tonight! I had suggested doing something Friday night after I get off work, but he's going to the opening baseball game at the university. So maybe Saturday. It's better not going anywhere on the holiday anyway - everyone is out then! LOL!

Hope you enjoyed the time with your parents!

    Glad your cold is gettng better. Just remember that feeling thin and strong feels soooo much better than eating some french fries. You CAN do this!

Exercise is really important to losing weight. It helps me to stay positive and feel stronger plus it burns more calories than sitting around. When I miss my exercise for more than 2 days I feel really bad. It is incredible how much it affects my mood.

Have a fantastic week and keep Sparkin' works!

Happy Monday

Monday, February 13, 2012

I hope everyone had a great week & even better weekend. Mine was pretty good. I got to see my friends and fiance. I had some time to myself and even took another bath. The male cat was sitting on the toilet and kept putting his paws on the edge of the tub like he wanted to come in. Silly fluffer.

I am finally starting to feel better. I got a cold after my sinus infection.. yuck. My nose is tired of tissues! hehe

Now that I am getting a better, I am starting to realize I am feeling lonely again. I try not to let it bother me, but sometimes it does. I forced myself to start working on the wedding plans again to keep myself busy. I hate forcing my friends to do things with me, so I eventually just stop asking them to do things.

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and I am not excited at all. Usually I am really happy about Valentines even though I don't really care about it in a romantic sense - I just like getting people cards and cute things. I am just not feeling it this year. I wrote out my cards last month, but I forgot to mail out the cards today. I am feeling like it doesn't even matter they won't get them tomorrow because not many people even care that I do things like that. My fiance has school & work so we don't have time to do anything. He said we can do something on Friday instead if I want. I don't even feel like it though. I hope this feeling passes soon because I hate it.

I hope everyone has a great Valentines Day even if you are not celebrating it!
