My Weighty Story: FINALLY AN UPDATE!

My Weighty Story: FINALLY AN UPDATE!

Hello everyone.

This is going to be a really quick update.

I am LOVING my new job. I’m challenged, the people are amazing and get this … they are doing a “Biggest Loser” competition in the office! What an awesome way to stay motivated!

Well I’ve been here three weeks now … and guess what…

I’VE LOST A TOTAL OF 8 POUNDS!!!!

/ happy dance!

I’m walking during some of my lunches, and want to get to the point where I’m walking every lunch. Plus, this weekend I’ll be registering myself and the family for the Wharf to Wharf again this year. Very excited about that.

I have a goal of losing 20 pounds by my birthday, which is about the time the office biggest loser challenge finishes. I’m hoping for more, but 20 pounds I think is more than reasonable.

What are your current plans for getting the weight off for the summer?

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

When Life Gets in the Way

When Life Gets in the Way

I had every intention of scheduling post on Sunday for this week. So what happened? My back blew and I spent the weekend on a heating pad and doped up on pain meds.

I started my new job on Monday and first I must say that I LOVE it! I am learning so much and the people there have been amazingly warm and inviting. It is a little scarey though because it is literally into the frying pan and into the fire with these folks. First day there and I was doing stuff that very likely will sit in front of an attorney someday soon. Not that what I was doing was something I hadn’t been doing in my other job, but … It is an insane feeling to have them trust me to do a lot of what I’m doing with very little double checking. In my old job, EVERYTHING was “wordsmithed” to death by the boss man before it went out. Here they are just here do this, and send it out. That’s the end of it. It’s a huge transition in a way of thinking and between that, learning the new systems, procedures and other things, I’m completely spent by the time I get home.

Oh… And the drive home … well I went from a one hour one way drive with agriculture and lots of traffic… to well this..

10 minutes from home, and this is the worst of the traffic ( there were a whooping 6 cars in front of me) and I get to drive down through Capitola Village and see this view EVERY day on my home. (Yes, I know I have a crack in my windshield. No, I was not driving and taking pictures. I was at a complete stop when this was taken.)

Writing… well… since I’ve been so tired by the time I get home, nothing has happened at all this week. Last week I did some editing, but that really is about it. I am re-reading the last third of a book over again that I am sure in my haste to finish the audiobook in time (I returned it with less than 12 hours left on my “rental”), I missed some elements. Luckily, I was able to pick up the Kindle version of the book for only $2.00. It’s a GREAT book, and I’ll discuss it more when I do my next “What have a read” update.

In regards to my GET HEALTHY PROJECT, I have lost a few pounds in the last few weeks and the girls in the office have a BIGGEST LOSER competition going through June, so the atmosphere in the office is very uplifting and should help to keep my motivation going. Plus, I’ve taken Wall-E on a walk every day when I get home, before I even sit down, because, if my toosh hits a surface when I get home, good luck getting me back up.

Wall-E however, is very confused by this new job. He doesn’t understand why Wall-E has to stay and why Mommy is gone for such a long time during the light time.

When I get home, he has been stuck to me like glue. It’s so sweet. I do miss being able to take him to work with me, but we will adjust and everything will be fine.

I have to run. To those of you I’m following, I will try to do some catch up this weekend on your posts.

Have a great week everyone and I’ll be back once I iron out a new life schedule. (I’m really missing writing.)

XOXO

Sadness. 



I grew up with Star Trek, loved him as William Bell in Fringe,  as Sentinel Prime in Transformers, and so so much more. 

I shall miss his presence on the screen.  You lived long and prospered. Rest in Peace Mr. Nimoy. 



Honestly.

Jack Sparrow

This one always makes me smile, because while it sounds like Jack Sparrow is babbling, what he is saying actually makes complete sense.

Even when I watched it the first time, I remember thinking how perfect that writing was.

( Oh how I love Crowley. (Yes, I love Supernatural.) He just wants someone to love him. )
