Hey where'd that crazy bitch go?

I'm right here! Seriously I am. And I'm still workin on it. Eating hasn't been perfect but then neither am I. However, I've been working out. Jillian and I have been Shredding so I'm pretty happy with that. It feels good! I've been getting rather restless just sitting on my fat ass so when I say it feels good, I truly mean it. I'm a bit sore in some spots, but certainly not enough to keep me from working out the next day, which is a NEW feeling for me!

A few positively awesome things have happened in the past couple weeks. I won a $250 gift cert to an interior store (I never win cool shit like that!), I got a $25 gift cert to Addition-elle which came at the perfect time because I also FINALLY got myself a job!!! I will be working as a teller for CIBC, training starts on the 12th of April which is also lucky because my son's spring break is next week and I just can't find the money for daycare for that with this check. Oh, and the Addition-elle gc...the awesomeness is because I've worked at a biker store for so long, and then before that a saddlery and tack shop...I've got ZERO professional type clothing!!!! So, shopping with my dear SIL on the 10th!

Saturday's weigh in finally brought a change. A gain of 0.2 lbs. That's nothing as far as I'm concerned so I'm still considering it a maintenance. No I do not want to maintain, but hubby promised that as soon as the money starts coming in and we get some debt paid I can get back on WW. But I'm also hoping that I can keep myself on track and won't have to do it. I like knowing it's an option though. So far this week though I'm already down 2 lbs!!!! Let's hope I can and WILL keep my shit together so I keep seeing drops in the weight!!!

Now these are some positive changes that I can get behind! Keep that momentum going...and Jillian is kicking my booty in a good way, too. Hurts so good.

To me, the only reason WW works is that you have to weigh in public, which is a great motivator. So here's my idea: you take a scale with you to some busy place, like the post office or a bus station, and weigh in there (I didn't say it was a GREAT idea).

Speaking of your winning ways, you'll also got a Jack Sh*t prize pack on the way (if it gets through Customs).

You are a lucky winner!

Kat said...

Congrats on the job! Way to go! This economy sucks so you are one of the lucky ones! And the wins? You need to buy a lottery ticket or whatever they have where you are!!

Diana said...

I don't know how I missed this...but woohoo!!! Finally, some good luck has come your way. It's about time. :)

Gongrats on the job too. That's just totally awesome.

Maintaining when things have been so stressful is wonderful. When I'm stressed I always turn to food for comfort. The fact that you're not doing that is proof you're looking at food differently.

I'm so happy to hear that you're happy. :)
