New beginnings.

Sunday, November 18, 2012

I start my new job tomorrow. I'm excited about meeting new people and building a new program. I'm also concerned that this dratted cold has me starting when I'm feeling pretty wiped out physically.

This new job is only 30 hours a week - I looked for part time on purpose & confirmed with my new boss that I wanted to stick to that schedule. I'm clear that I need to devote those extra 10 hours a week that I won't be working to my "other job" - losing weight & getting fit.

I'm getting organized today - with hubby's help. Cleaned the house. Hubby & I are both cooking today meals that can be eating later in the week. Set out 5 days of outfits with undies & nylons attached to the hanger... and also my workout clothes organized so that I can roll out of bed & put them on.

My Fall into Fitness Challenge this week is to track my food every day. Tracking is a struggle for me, so this will be a challenge. But I'm determined. If I make it a priority, then it will happen.

Well, there's more laundry to do & casseroles to make. Hope evreyone is having a relaxing Sunday.

    I've workede 34 hours a week (4 days) for many years and I've often said that the extra day off each week has saved my sanity! I think you'll love that schedule. Great job on getting prepared for the first week...you're setting yourself up for success.

    I hope you'll like the new job.
    I love your approach, looking at the 10 hours not worked as hours dedicated to healthy lifestyle.

    Well Congrats and glad it is part time. I wouldn't mind working again if I could find something partime that i was able to do. I am hoping that long term asks me what I think, will say can you find me a physio person taht can work with me, and help instead of just saying here do this and thats all. I will work if able I don't want to fight with them but know also that at this time I can't work.

    So I am so glad you are getting back to you!!! I know how up you sounded and were in Quebec and hope you find that inner peace again.
    HUGS and Congrats on the new job, and the reduced hrs to put towards you!

    It sounds as though you are as prepared as you can be. I know this job will be a good change for you.

    I am tracking in a notebook, then entering it into SP - that is easier for me.
