Whoa...I'm really surprised! I weighed in last Saturday for my 5% Challenge and I weighed in at 237.5 pounds. This morning was my first weekly weigh-in and I came in at 233.5 pounds! Whoa! 4 pounds?! In a week?! I remember when I first started out last time a couple years ago, the weight came off easily which was cool. But I never expected four pounds. I mean, I DID change my eating habits, the amount of water I was drinking, and my activities so yay! But whoa! Lol
My job interview is Wednesday. That happens to be our 9 year wedding anniversary too. It's a seven hour drive to where my interview is being held, so we are taking a family road trip. That way we can look around the area and find possible places to live too. It should be fun, albeit a long day. I don't really have anything to wear, so I am going to have to buy a new outfit. I dislike shopping. Lol. But I need a new outfit. I want to make a great impression. They obviously liked my résumé and credentials or they wouldn't have asked me to drive seven hours for an interview! Lets hope this is a good sign!
The job is in a correctional facility for 14-17 year olds who were charged with a drug or alcohol offense and part of the program is about recovery, which I have personal experience with. The town seems quaint and is only four hours from my family in Indiana. If it is meant to be, it will happen! Oh! And I finally got approved for unemployment! It's not much, but every little bit helps!!
I am starting to clean, deciliter, organize and pack because no matter if I get this job or not, we still have to move. I'm not sure where to begin, and I tried to make a list of things that need to be done, but that task is very daunting...to see what all has to be done. So I gave up on the list. I'm just going to start with one thing and go from that point.
I am a worry-wart. I worry about everything to the point of making myself sick. However, I have been working on praying about my worries and telling God I was giving all of them to Him to worry about so that I can just get on with life already. I am letting things happen as they so happen and just rolling with the punches. I know that no matter what happens, everything will be okay. I'm trying to stay positive which can be difficult. I still get down and my worries can be debilitating. I'm trying not to get in that slump. Just taking it one day, one minute, or one breath at a time to get through all of this. I know this difficult time won't last forever and I do have so much to be thankful for. So onward and upward we go!
Have a great day, Spark Friends! Hugs!
