It was such a crazy week that I almost forgot about my good news! I ended up working very late four out of the five nights this week. I get up at about 4:45 a.m. and when I don't get home until 7:00 p.m. on some nights, it doesn't leave much time to do thing at home. But I did manage to have a meal prepared at home each night and I did get fitness in for three of the five days. Not perfect but not bad either!
So here is what happened...my happy news story! The company for whom I work has a new President and we were meeting him for the first time on Wednesday. It was a group meeting and we would all be there (around 100 people), but I still wanted to look nice in case I had the opportunity to speak with him in person. Lately my pants have been so baggy but I tried on the next size down and they were just too tight. But on Wednesday morning I decided to forget the loose pants and wear the smaller size anyway because the loose ones look so frumpy. Wow, the smaller pair actually fit! And they weren't too tight at all! That was the day I was so exhausted from being up all night (we had bad storms) and I had such a headache, but knowing that I can wear a smaller size has made my work and effort so totally worth it! I still have a long way to go but this just shows that I CAN do it!
