Yes! It is finally Friday! The weekend comes and we can relax, look back and consider our past week with a not so critical eye. ( I hope)
For me, this has been a good week and sometimes a not quite as good week.
It started with the long awaited for phone calls from possible employers. Over the last two months I have sent out about 500 resumes with no luck. I was just about to sign up for another travel job, when the phone started ringing. Two job interviews in one week and two follow up interviews scheduled, and both for jobs I would actually love to do. Imagine that! I was thrilled and I didn't celebrate with food. Two for one! Then came a third phone call for a job in MD with the Army. Again a job I wouldn't mind, but Aberdeen seems like a very expensive area to live. ( I looked) Even if the job doesn't pan out, I was happy to have gotten the interview. Then I finally managed to pick up some work in the local prison. Not the ideal job, but work is good, so I was happy. I didn't celebrate with food... Happier still... Today I am still in la la land over all of this and my faith is high that more is coming. Yeah!
Now for the not quite so good.
While I didn't celebrate with food, which is my normal there were some instances where I did sort of binge. Not on junk food, which again is my normal, but on regular food. I think this is because I let myself get really hungry while out at those interviews and while working last night and that I didn't plan well enough to take a snack with me, which I knew I would need doing a 12 hour shift.
I gained back a half pound, but it is only Friday and I still have some time to make this right.
No beating myself up for these things. I know that they will occasionally happen. I have now reminded myself that I will need the appropriate snacks to work 12 hour shifts and that I should carry some in my car for when I am on the road and can't step away to eat.
Wow, in retrospect it was a good week all the way around.
Have a great Friday
Stay in Love
