This past week was kind of crazy. I've been thinking about getting a job for a while now and there's been one job I was especially keen on trying out. It's nothing special but I thought I could do it without too much stress. Well, Monday my husband came home from work & told me he saw that the place I wanted to work was hiring the position I wanted. So Tuesday I applied to the job. Wednesday I got called for an interview. Thursday was the interview & I got hired on the spot. Friday was orientation and today, Saturday, was my first day at work. A week ago I had no idea I would be working today.
Generally I'm a night person but I do well on a morning schedule too once I get used to it. That's a good thing since I now have to get up at 4am 6 days a week. I tried to go to bed early last night but my brain just wasn't having any of it. So I'm really tired right now. But I'm going to stay awake so I can adjust to this new schedule.
It has been a bit stressful getting a job this quickly. I loathe change! I was so nervous this morning I was sick to my stomach. I was afraid that it would affect my work & make me look bad but everything worked out. I was so intent on learning what I needed to do that I completely forgot about my stomach ache & it went away. I know this is going to be a good change (especially for our finances) but I'm just tense all over from the stress.
Luckily I should have a spa visit coming up soon. When I first started my weight loss I told myself that after I lost my first 10 pounds I could use the spa gift certificate I got for Christmas from my husband. Well the first 10 pounds came off so fast that I pushed that reward back to 20 pounds and gave myself a different reward for the 10 pounds. Partially because I spa service I want, a full body scrub & mask, will be nicer closer to the warmer weather, not February. Well, I've only a couple more pounds to go!
Last week I thought I had regained a couple of pounds but my husband saved the day. When I complained, he checked the scale & noticed the calibration was off. Just sitting there with nothing on it the scale said 3 pounds. And I know it was correct before. Maybe we kicked it or something? So he recalibrated it & happily I was back to where I was before I had thought I had regained. So yay I can still eat a piece of cake once in awhile!
