So we're starting our weight loss competition at work this week. It's a little different this year. We each put in $10 to join. Half of the money will go to the person who loses the greatest % of weight. The other half will be split $40 to whoever earns the most points, then I think $20 and $10 for the 2nd and 3rd place point earners.

I'm looking forward to this, except that my time at the center may be coming to an end. My MIL put me in contact with a lady who is looking to hire someone with my degree and is quite impressed with my resume. It's in a town I like and I would be able to grow with the company since it's still in it's infancy. It would be managing houses for people with developmental disabilities. A lot different from daycare, but reminds me of my college days. I'd miss the kids, but I'd be making $4 more an hour. If I'm offered the job I really can't turn it down. My mom thinks it's funny because I'd be making more than my husband.

With this job my husband would be out of excuses for not starting a family. I just wonder if since my MIL played a part in this job, would it finally be good enough for her? Now what will she have to get her hands into?

Anyway, go figure, I started eating salads again for lunch. I'd switched to GF noodles and chicken with raw veggies when it started getting cold. I look forward to my salads. I ran out of lettuce before shopping today and that's all I could think about. For this weight loss competition we get points for eating 3 veggie servings and 2 fruit servings a day. Not worried about that. One girl I think was a little upset that I was doing the competition because as she says, I already eat healthier than everyone else. Not true, my supervisor has me beat on that. I do need to drink more water and get back into the fitness groove. Spring will help with that. I'm counting the days until I can get back to the wildlife sanctuary after work.

I think I'm ready for a change and this seems like the right time of year. I just need to have faith that things will work out the way they're supposed to.

    If you get this new job will you be moving, or staying put? I hope you get it and that it's as great as it seems. And don't worry about missing daycare; hopefully in the next few years you'll have your hands full with a kid(s) of your own!

    Best wishes on the competition this year. I hope it goes well!
