Hi! And welcome! I had a friend who worked the night shift. Hard stuff! From my friend I've heard that - even though he has been with the company 10 years - he's still not "senior" enough to get a morning shift.
So how do you like the Kinect? It would figure as soon as I get a Wii (strictly for exercise) everyone goes to Kinect, lol! I think you don't have any controllers? Not sure.
As for portion control, I understand. It is a big thing for a lot of people - even for me sometimes, and I've been a long time fitness instructor and personal trainer. It has been the one thing that has kept me from fully reaching my goals. While I'm in shape, I wanted to be more muscular but with not eating clean it is next to impossible. BUT! I prefer enjoying life :-) I don't drink, don't smoke. Might as well have a cupcake once in a while. Its all about moderation
