I am inching into better habits. Last night I called it a night and quit eating after dinner. What a concept! I have had more gym visits due to daughter's 7 day pass and grandson's membership. Daughter is going to join but must have some nice workout clothes. Typical girl...I think I can swing some for her even though I am on a spending freeze..shop wisely and get the bare minimum.. I am thrilled she is doing this so I want to support the effort. Need to do my marketing ASAP because I am out of lettuce... a near crisis at our house!
My body feels better, my legs feel more toned, my belly is still out there though, not what it was last summer, but it can get there easily. We are only talking about 8 pounds actually. And I am not going to let it discourage me into bad habits!!
Speaking of positive. I have a co-worker who has been badgering the other paralegal to start "putting her resume out there" and the other day she said some stuff to me along that lines. I promptly told her I was staying with this company until the day they tell me to leave because it is a very good job. I am not making any fear based decisions about employment and it irritated me to have her talk to me that way. I thought maybe she wanted me to leave so it would make her feel more secure with additional work even though she is an attorney. But that's most likely a little paranoid on my part. I have a great job, and to look now and take another position would not give me any more job security at a new place (things are tough all over) PLUS I have six weeks of paid time off and I seriously doubt any new job would give me that - so I'm going to enjoy my time off days, my current salary, and think positive for pete's sake!!! I work for a profitable company that is still making plenty of money last time I checked.
Now, that being said I could get my walking papers tomorrow - but I would still not regret my decision. We get severance packages around here. I am going to work hard and enrich my education if possible and make the most of what I have!!! Besides, worrying makes me eat, and I hate when that happens..
