First day of Training Done!

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

It's been a long day. I was training for my new job. In home worker. I can't wait. I'm looking forward to getting my first contract. I still have two more half days of training - tomorrow and next Tuesday.

I need a new wardrobe. Professional attire. At least semi-professional. No jeans. T-shirts. Running shoes. Those are basically all I have. I do have a few more items, but not much. I have some skirts. I need to check my pants - see how many pairs I have that fit. I'm not going out to buy a whole bunch, as I am going to start loosing weight soon, so I'll need smaller sizes as I go.

Oh, speaking of loosing weight. I had some gluten free pasta last night with supper. Today I have a bloated budda tummy. I hate this. I think while I'm trying to loose weight I have to give up pasta. It's just not worth the calories or the bloated abdomen the next day. At least I'm hoping it's a bloated abdomen from the pasta.

I got to the gym this morning before I went for training. When I was finished for the day, I was too tired and it was too cold. I just didn't want to go running. No big deal. I still have a calorie deficit of over 1,000 today.

The plan is to go to the gym and run tomorrow morning before training. Training starts at 11am tomorrow morning.

I should go through my closet and see what I have to wear for tomorrow. Time for me to learn how to dress myself and put outfits together.

So today was a good day.

    Black pants and a white shirt are things you can always wear, and look professional. All the best in your new job!

    I love What Not To Wear. I disagree that you have to spend that much on clothing BUT they do have good advice for how to dress your body. Go for basics that can go with anything (not just black, any neutral would be good: olive, beige, brown) and then make the outfits pop with accessories. Accessories are much cheaper so you can buy different ones each season to make your outfits look fresh and new.

    First purchase the basics: Black Pants and a Black Skirt. Something that is comfortable and a good business length. I have seen women wearing skirts above the knee but I don't feel that is very professional.

    After you have those basics then to add some blouses/tops can be done on a budget if you shop the sales. The massive clearance on spring things is nearing its end and starting into Summer lines. Summer clearance will start mid august as fall things will start to appear.

    Sandals(if allowed) should be cheap right now too. Getting a few timeless pieces that you can adapt to seasons is definetly worth the investment.

    I feel the same about pasta. When I was younger, I ate plenty of it but now, due to the calories (and how little food adds to a lot of calories), I prefer rice, bread and potatoes. emoticon

    Good luck with your new job and congratulations! That's great! emoticon

    Like AMBERZADE67 I am curious too if your job is nursing? If it is you could wear scrubs and the pants tie, so as you lose weight just tighten them:) If you need a nicer outfit for maybe an interview I'd check out thrift stores. I just got a brand new pair of chocolate brown Banana Republic pants and dressy top to go with for a total of $6.00! If you do go for the scrubs and you have a Forman Mills near you they are really inexpensive. Good Luck on the job front!

    It sounds like the gym is getting easier and that is a great step forward!

    Congrats! What does an inhome worker do? Is that nursing? I really admire people in the health care profession because I could never do that.

    A day with a calorie deficit is a good day!
