My awesome day

Thursday, January 10, 2013

OK... I just realized that the very first blog someone new will read on here in the last 4 days was about gas... my gas inducing Colon Blow goo. emoticon Lovely!!!

So yesterday, I had an awesome day.

It was totally not weightloss - maintenance - exercise related either (Hmmm or now that I think about it... was it?) Well, anyway.. It was work related.

I don't reallly talk about work on here, but let me just say this one thing: Change is a-comin' in 2013 and yesterday, my soon--to-be new boss, well, I impressed the SH** out of him! emoticon Oh yes...I said that. He came into the day thinking one thing, and my agenda was something completely different, and guess what, it was just what we needed to do! WOOHOO! Give this girl a gold medal! And it's not like it's going to get easy at all - I am UBER SUPER busy even more so now, but it's all manageable if we take things one step at a time.

So anyway....that was my awesome day. I was awesome. Work was awesome. New boss is awesome. I hope and pray it stays this awesome. pressure at all, Pollyanna! emoticon

But I will say this: the universe always tends to balance things out because I walked into my house all smiles and everyone basically turned to me and was like "what?" emoticon "everything has been going nuts here.. so and so fell, this one is a pain with his homework... sorry to bust you bubble when you "galavant" in here, but we got things to do". Hmmmm, gee thanks family - way to kill a girls buzz. emoticon

So I shut up....and got to work... and eventually got an apology at dinner, and I didn't overeat (like I would tend to want to do), and then the day continued to progress into o.k-ness into the night.

Hey - just speaking the truth... awesome balanced out with other people reality is life! LOL Ups and downs are like "peas and carrots."- they just get along.

OK - back to my awesome day.

So my new co-worker was looking at photo's on the wall...past photos. I had already told him that I was maintaining 50 pounds gone..and he kinda didn't believe me.. until he saw the pictures. I also have this bracelet that OAKBORN sent me that says
UNBREAKABLE and he also saw that and realized that I'm dead serious about the whole weight thing.

He asked me if I was "stict" about my eating and I just told him - at 10am, I will be disappearing and cramming a granola bar into my mouth while I work, because I eat when I am hungry and that is the time I am hungry...every single day. emoticon

The look on his face was hysterical and he said, "hey, whatever you need to do".

And I told him about how I was laughing at all the cookies and crap they have at the office.. I told him that it would have been kryptonite years ago, but now it's AOK and I really don't care if it's there or not. Again, I got that pensive nod that indicated, 'Wow , this girl is determined". I just told him it is what it is...and that is it.

It's funny what other people see now that I am thinner and when they first meet me. They have NO idea what's going on in my head (and vice versa right? LOL)

OMG - I didn't think this blog was going to be about weight, and low and behold, here it is again! LOL Won't you ever go away?? emoticon No, I guess not, my dear old nagging little friend!

PS - Just wanted to say THANKS to all the friend-adds I got in the last 4 days - WHOA! is a word that comes to mind. I will try to get to visit you all soon... most likely tomorrow because right now.. oh, life is getting in the way! AAAAAHHHHHH!!! emoticon

    That was a great day for you. I am glad you like your new boss. Yes, it is interesting to meet people who did not know you 50 pounds ago. I am used to those office goodies also and stay away from them! Glad you got your family settled in.
