Weekly Update Blog

It has been a busy week. I was offered a job as a preschool teacher and I took it. I had one day of work Thursday and will go back on Tuesday. It is not my ideal job but it is a start and I a getting excited. It is a great place.

I got an xbox kinect over the weekend. I have been playing games and downloading demos to decide what games I will buy next. There is a game called Zumba Rush that I do like and I liked Dance Party 3. A couple other exercise games I did not like so I am glad I could try them before I buy them. I have a few other downloaded demos to try today. (Dance Revolution and some others). I may go buy a game this weekend. I was sweating hard and it was a nice addition to my workouts.

Another positive is I am still at 100 pounds lost. My weight was up over the weekend but went back down. I lost .2 pounds this week. Not much but I will take it. I am at 101 pounds even now. lol

Here is how I am doing this week on my April Goals:

  Congrats on your new job!! You will definitely be moving all day chasing preschoolers. You are my favorite cheer leader and I look forward to cheering for you as you contines to reach for new goals. Remember scales are fickle and they often lie for no reason like salt and caffeine intake. It really helps me to focus on other things like jean size and mile times. Have a great day.

  Congrats on the job. We all gotta start somewhere. Super congrats on the running three times a week and being smart enough to take a day off and rest your body.

    Heh, you're making me feel guilty about not looking for work now, finding a job so fast! LOL! I'm glad you'll be resting your ankle tomorrow.

    Congrats again on the new job! As of yesterday my kids are finally all healthy again! Time to plan some fun for Spring Break this week coming. I have wanted an Xbox but have a hard time justifying it when we have a Wii. I just think it would be to much cooler to not have to use the remote. emoticon

    I absolutely love this quote and will likely steal it :) I am working really hard on goal setting in my life right now and finding my driving force. Not just here and with fitness but in my business as well. I applaud your efforts you are doing awesome. I hope your new job turns out to be so much more than you are expecting it to be.
