It would have been nice if I could have posted something like “OMG, I’m down 3 dress sizes”, which would be even more remarkable, since I don’t wear dresses. But life is not like that. Last month, I made a huge career decision. Leaving a place that I had been with for over 15 yrs (collectively). I changed not only my employer, but the industry I worked in. I went from private sector to public sector. Big changes.
But I wasn’t sitting idle, doing nothing about my blog. In fact, I was creating the page that you are now reading this entry from. I’ve wanted my own domain from the start, but I made a deal with my husband. I would promise to blog at least once a week for 3 months. If I did that, then it would prove I was serious. So I did that, and more. But when the time came to actually purchase the domain, I realized there was so much research to be done. Then, when I did chose my host company, next was actually setting up the blog. So many themes to choose from. I want my site to be clean and not cluttered so again, lots of research and watching Youtube videos.
That brings us to pretty much now. I have my own site and I’ve transferred all my posts over here. What’s different? I am so excited. I have menu options now! I can put recipes together, more to come on that as I figure out the best way to design that section. I can review items, not just food. Best of all? You can follow me! I can say that I have “followers”.
Now on to this weeks weigh in. I really wanted to skip this one especially. I’ve missed two meetings in a row, I was in Dominican Republic with very special friends, Rachel and Jon, who got married. Now, I’m sure that there was low fat Pina Colada’s and low carb fresh rolls, I just didn’t see them.
Up 2.4 lbs. OK, I can take that. I’m alright with knowing that I had a fantastic week and while I didn’t always make the healthiest decisions, I did make quite a few.
Next up? As part of a work sponsored event, I am part of the GCC, Global Corporate Challenge, click here to learn more about it. But what you need to know is that I’m on a team of 7 fellow employees competing against other teams (over 30,000 teams globally) to see how far we can “virtually” travel. Our starting location is Rome. Yesterday I logged over 12,000 steps. Thanks to my husband for joining me at the indoor walking track. (see pic below, I added more steps afterwards).
So, now that I have the food figured out, I’m starting my “get up and get moving” phase.
Enjoy the week and check back for more content.
