New school

Monday, April 09, 2012

First day at my new job. It was very quiet today. I still don't have computer access so I had to sit around all day. I occupied my time with trade magazines and papers. The new place has an awesome cafeteria with a great salad bar, so there is no need for me to bring lunch to stay healthy. I'm going to try it for a couple of days to see if it's cost effective. If I can save money by bringing in lunch I think I will do that, but I also don't want to be anti social with my coworkers. Sometimes in some companies, people look at you funny if you bring your own lunch. I will bring my v8's and Greek yogurts so I have my healthy snacks handy. I caught myself eyeballing the vending machine today, but did notice there are some healthy options, just in case. It's exciting starting a new job. It definitely feels like the first day of school.

    Congrats and good luck! I felt the exact same way when I started my job. I moved out of my parents house and 3 hours was definitely like starting high school. As a matter of fact, that was when I started gaining my "happy weight" as my mom called it. Great job for already being aware of your healthy options! (I discovered Philly soft pretzels, and practically lived off of them! haha) emoticon
