I started my new job on March 1st, and I love it! It challenges me, keeps me learning, and pays well. I love going to work, even if I have to get up at 5:30. The only problem is that from now until May I am in an office, sitting on my ass all day. It doesn't do much for my weight loss. the building is connected to a HUGE undergraound mall thingy. So we usually go down for lunch, and they have so many places to choose from. When my boss and other co-worker are in the office I usualy go down with them to get my lunch, because of the whole bonding thing. But days like today, where I am alone I bring my lunch and eat WAY less then I do when they are here. plus i can get up and do jumping jacks. but the days they both aren't here are rare.
I have started taking the stairs, 12 flights with 21 steps per flight is a lot of stairs and I feel like I want to die after, but I am going to stick with it, since it fits excersize perfectly into my schedual.
But my weight loss plan for the wedding has been taken off track. It has made me frustrated and mad, and panicks me whenever I think about it. I dont want to be fat in Jamaica. And it doesn't help that Easter is near, with all that candy. I have a big problem with self control. I will buy one bag of candy, saying this will last the month, but then I sit down and watch a movie or something and they whole bag is gone. I have tried not buying the bag, but then i crave it so bad and eat other horrble things. I have taken all the candy I bought to work, it sits in my drawer, and I offer it to the guys in the office. and since it is hidden I dont think about it that often, so I am not munching on them all day. And today I havn't had one. because i know if i have one I will want more. Plus its a pain to put in the nutrition thing on sparkpeople. so today is a good day so far for my diet, and excersize, but its only half over.
It doesn't help either that the tredmill is broken. I was just getting into running everyday, and the stupid thing goes and breaks. Makes me so frustrated, and my father has no idea what to do, I will have to bring in my enginer friend and see what he can do!

So for the last 4 months I have been working as a shoe sales woman, thats right, and Geologist selling shoes. It was the perfect in between job for me because i love shoes, but not really what I want to do with my life. But an amazing thing happened, I got a call, the call, that took me away from shoes and brought me back to rocks. I start tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited.
My best friend is getting married in May in Jamaica, so of course I want to look my best in a bathing suit. So I had planned on loosing 10 pounds a month, high hopes I know, but in January I did it, lost 11 pounds. but then came February. I was getting depressed about my job selling shoes, I had to have a root canal, and it was Valentines day, with all that chocolate. It didn't help that there was a constant supply of valentines chocolate at work. So I didn't loose anything this month. Which makes me very sad and mad and frustrated. But not for long.
I have a new found motivation (mainly the new bathing suits I got from Victoria secret), and new job and I am ready to go.

i am so frustrated with my self, i do so good for a week, and then I slack off, thinking of any excuse not to keep on track. All the modivation i have for my self around the house does no good, nothing works for me. My record for keeping on track is abotu 3 weeks, but then something happens to mess up my schedual, and i am one who needs to have a constant schedual or I can't keep with something. it is just part of who I am, I try and change it, but I need things contstant, and I just can't get that right now. I so wish I was someone else, i hate this flaw and it makes me want to give up. Bah humbug!!!!!!!

So my parents went away for 3 days. Day 1 was ok because I had to go to go and find a job. So lots of walking, not much time to eat. Day 2, horrible. I was told I might get a call back, so I stayed home all day, sat in front of the TV because I was too nervous to do anything else, and ate. and ate and ate and ate. I am so disapointed in my self. The one good thing I did that day (tuesday) was go to the movies and see Star Trek. Usually i buy two bags of candy and have a big thing of pop, but this time i took my water bottle and that was all I had. I was so proud of my self, but I think that reason I could resist temptation this time was because I did eat all day and therefore wasn't hungry. But I didn't think of that till after, so I can still remember that feeling I had during, i was proud of my self. Hopfully i can remember that feeling for the next time I go to the movies, maybe I can resist temptation again!

so my parents are gone again, another test to see if I pig out or not. So far I am doing great, i went to a job fair in Toronto and had a veggie burger for lunch, then for my 3pm snack, I had the rest of my Wings. There were only 4, I am sure there is a lot of fat in it, but I plan on having a small dinner, i guess we will see how that goes. Since I have started this website, I find that I am more modivated to do healthy things instead of just sitting in front of the TV all day, and I am more inclined to eat healthier foods. It must be psycological, something like I dont want to disapoint the website, strange I know, but I am a strange girl. I will see tomorrow how I do, I have to go to Burlington at some point and then hopfully toronto at night for a dinner and cocktail interview. I must try to eat healthy during my travels and not drink many cocktails. It helps that I am driving with the new laws in ontario, you can't drive if you even have one drink. So I am more inclined to drink water instead.
