New Job, Check! Now what?

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

Well, now that I've got the new job, which I will start some time next week, I hope, (They couldn't get me in to do my pre-employment testing until Tuesday at the clinic.) time to focus on the rest of my life.

Now that my commute has been cut from 35 minutes to about 5, I'll have a lot more time to work out! So, some thoughts:

1. Bed NO LATER THAN 11:00! (Except for Mondays, which are Sweet Adelines nights and I don't even get home until 11:30)

2. At the gym by 6:00 3 mornings a week. I can get up later on Saturday because the gym's open until noon.

3. If I can do 30 minutes on the treadmill plus some weight training (or a Spinning Class), I should be in good shape!

4. I do have to be at work at 8:00, but I can leave here at 7:40 and get there in PLENTY of time! (Maybe even 7:45, but I like to have time to figure out my day)

I always like fresh starts! I am VERY thankful for the opportunity to begin fresh again! This new job doesn't have much to do with what my degree is in (Accounting), but I think I need to take a break from that anyway. I was starting to get burned out.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I will be at my brother's house with 27 of my family members! (And that's just my Dad's side of the family! He only had one brother, but there are a lot of kids around now to make things fun!)

    Sounds great! Especially the commute!! Do you think the route is such that you could ride a bike to work? I know the company my husband works for has some shower facilities and employees who bike to work (especially during the warmer months.). But great that you have a job and that you were WANTED by the higher ups!!

    Wow! Sounds like a great forward going plan. What a nice change to drop down to such a short commute to work.
