Wednesday and Back at Work of My First Day of Not Being Employed

Thursday, September 16, 2010

Okay so Tuesday wasn't exactly my last day. It was my last paid day but I couldn't get finished since the poor person I am training only had 4 days to learn the job including several computer program issues. I left Tuesday night at 10P (instead of 5P) and gave up because I was too tired to think. I was back in at 8AM to finish up. That took about 3 hours but I didn't hurry since I had lunch plans. I had to explain that I had worked really hard for 10 years to make the job something I could enjoy and be proud of. The last couple years it changed and there was re-alignment of duties. I became completely task oriented and had to give up any hope of the creative side of the job that I enjoyed. I still had the job though and as long as there is a breath left in me I cannot drop the ball. I will not just leave at the end of my last day with things in disarray because I had too much to do in the amount of time given. Now I can leave and feel that I have done everything humanly possible to make the transition easier for everyone. Everyone else seemed to feel the same way. I am still going to be around for at least a couple more weeks so I will still see my friends at work and I can feel good about it. We are going to lunch tomorrow since I didn't have time to tell everyone goodbye. I have still been working out but my diet has been a little off for the last few days as everyone brought stuff and I ate because I felt like it. I am still 2 pounds away from goal but you don't quit a job that you had for every all the time. I am off to bed. I am pooped and I still have to clean the house from top to bottom so they can take photos and do a virtual tour of the house for the reality website. Once all that is done in about 3 days I can drop in my tracks if I need to. I might need to. Good thing I am in better shape than I have been in years!!

Last Day At Work

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

It has finally arrived. Today is my last day at my current job. It has been a rough week so far. I am trying to get everyone up to speed but it is slow going. I suspect I will get several calls over the next week or so. I will be finishing up getting the house ready to go on the market. I hope it sells fast. I really look forward to getting out to LA with my hubby. I have to start the job hunt too. Now that work is almost over I get focus on the stuff I need to get done in order to move. I will be so happy to get there. I have finished all the DIY stuff now I just need to completely clean the place from top to bottom. It won't be any fun but it will be good to get it done. I am off to start my day. Hopefully it will go smoothly!

Too busy to realize I had missed breakfast?!?!?

Monday, September 13, 2010

Well that day at work was so busy I am just now realizing I didn't have breakfast just coffee. I have one more day to go and it is over except for the phone calls for help. I am going to have to figure out how to get the right number of grams of protein in without eating too much since it is in the evening and I sleep better on a light dinner. At least we took 45 minutes and went to Popeye's for lunch. I love the Naked Chicken strip and green beans. I don't even let them give me that biscuit. That would be cruel. Well I had better get cracking on the protein challenge. Maybe some shrimp. That might just hit the spot!

All my teams are sucking this weekend!

Sunday, September 12, 2010

Well my Bengals are not looking so good just now. That is pretty scary considering it is still 8 minutes to go in the first. The Vols got smashed last night and Jeff Gordon didn't finish in the top ten. Obviously my sports teams are having a rough weekend. You would like to think that at least one would do well. I guess it might be a long season. I got up and weighted and it was better than I expected. Only up a pound even with all the sodium I had at the state fair. I have already done my Life Cycle this morning and will start painting in the bedroom at half time or when the score is bad I can't stand watching anymore. Once I am finished with the painting I think I only have deep cleaning to go before the house is ready to put on the market. I hope we have a quick sell. I want to get to LA sooner rather than later. I really miss my hubby. Only 2 more days at work but I'm trying to train the new person so they are stupid busy. It does make for quick days though. Here is to a great week!

Could this be permanent, finally?

Saturday, September 11, 2010

Well today is back to DIY at the home front again. I am really going to try to finish this weekend so it will be finished. My weight was down a little this morning but the state fair fare hasn't had time to show it's ugly head yet. Still I think this is a good thing. I am at least able to maintain my momentum even after a day like yesterday. I am beginning to think I might be able to do this long term for the first time. It has never really stuck before this. As many times as I have lost a ton of weight I was never able to keep it off. I might actually be able to do this time. Pretty cool, huh? I had better get off here and run the couple errands I have so I can get started on the rest of my projects.

    Don't you love the feeling that finally, finally you found something that works?

I tried other things had success and then let life happen. Not this time, with the support of Spark and the people here I think it has not only stuck it is becoming a mission to draw in others.

Have a great Day!!
