My World's A Changin - Update on Me

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Hi Everybody. Been a bit since I've focuses on SP, or written a blog, so here goes.

I'm still stuck at this nasty plateua. Lost 100lbs, and then NOTHIN! At least I'm maintaining, which is honestly my goal through the holidays, but it's still frustrating.

Anyway, a couple of changes in my life in the next month or so.

I got a promotion/new job! I finally figured out exactly what it is about my current position and my career that drives me crazy, and had an "AHA!" moment about what I want to do with my life. I want my voice to be heard so I can affect change and fix processes before they become "fires", but I don't want to manage people. So, I applied for an accepted a job as a Business Analyst. I start 12/16. In the meantime, I've been relegated to busy work in my current position, and I'm totally bored! LOL

I finally bought a new car, and I love it! I was driving a 1997 pickup truck for the last 10+ years. I bought a 2010 ford fusion. I think the car is smarter than I am (it came with 4 user manuals), and I apologize in advance to anyone who gets phone calls from my steering wheel (already happened to two people) but I'll get there. It has Sync, which is fantastic!

Also, update on my bodybugg...it's incredible to me to see how much difference there is in calorie burn between light workout days, and heavy workout days. Love the bodybugg. It's keeping me on track when I find myself wanting to go off, and gives me knowledge about my body I wouldn't otherwise have. It's fabulous!

Kind of a random disjointed blog, but that's me lately, so it is what it is. Hope all of you have a fantastic Thanksgiving!

    Great to hear from you...and so much good news in your life!

    Maintainging through so much change is fantastic and 100 pounds is simply amazing. I've been sticking at 50 for quite awhile, so I can sympathize...but obviously our bodies are getting used to the new weight and not trying to go back up.

    Thanks for letting us know about the body bugg. You are so techy!!! LOL

    Congratulations on everything...love it...hugs...Robin

    Awesome! A promotion, a new vehicle, maintaining and figuring some things out. I'd say all in all, that's a GREAT accomplishment! Congrats, and maintain through the holidays, 2012 is soon enough to start losing again, this is a challenging time of year.

    Congratulations on the promotion, that's great! Plateau's suck, I've been on one for about 6 weeks, and before that it was 5. Just keep moving along, that's all we can do. Hang in there girl, it'll work out!

    Random is good.. that's how life is most of the time! Keep at it, that plateau will be busted eventually.
    Enjoy the holiday!
