Back to the old routine

Monday, January 04, 2016

Today was my first day back to work after 17 days off. I tried to make the best of it, but it was hard. I really, REALLY, enjoyed my time off. My husband is retired now, and it's really hard for me to get up early and go off to work. I saw a t-shirt on Facebook that said, "All I really want to do is be a stay at home dog mom." Yup, that about sums it up for me! I planned ahead and took some Greek yogurt, low-fat cheese sticks, zero-calorie drinks, and instant oatmeal to work with me. I wanted to keep some healthy snacks and/or lunch items convenient to save money and calories. I am also going to make a point of getting up and walking around more often. I still have to work for 4 more years, but I'll do my best to make them healthy years.

    My husband retired a few years before I did as well so I understand exactly what you mean about that. It sounds like you have a good plan for making these healthy work years.

    My husband and I both retired at the same time. I would find it really hard to go to work and leave him at home. I hope your day went smoothly.

    Glad you enjoyed your time off. I retired from the military about 10 years ago but have debts to pay so I'm in the work place full-time still. It's hard. I'm trying to be prepared with healthy lunches and snacks too. Keep on keeping on!
