Job-wise, the day was great! Food-wise....do we really have to talk about that? lol
I felt very comfortable at work. So far all the people seem very nice and friendly. Staci, the girl who's training me, was very helpful and patient. I seemed to pick up on stuff pretty quickly. I answered phones today, as well as caught up their filing and learned how to set up files for claims. I don't think I made any mistakes....hopefully nothing will come back to bite me in the a$$ tmrw, lol.
Right now, I'm sitting right beside Staci at her desk, which is the receptionist desk. She will be going on vacation next week, and when she comes back, her desk will be in Billie's office, because she'll be doing other duties to help her. But for now, I'm sitting with Staci and I just didn't feel comfortable breaking out all my food and laying it all over her papers (her desk is covered up with papers).
I got to work at 7:30am and had a 110 calorie Kashi blackberry graham bar for breakfast while Billie had her cup of oatmeal. I'm used to eating every 2-3 hours, but that didn't happen today. I brought some fruit with me and a small chicken sandwich on a whole wheat bun...250 cals. But I didn't eat anything besides the Kashi bar until noon. I was FAMISHED and the last thing I wanted was the banana and lil bitty chicken sandwich. I wanted much more. I went to Publix across the street and got 2 chicken tenders and a little pasta salad out of their deli....it was so good and I felt like I could 3x that much. I went back to the ofc and sat in Billie's ofc and ate the chicken sandwich I brought and the watermelon. About 3:30p I just couldn't stand it anymore, and ate my banana.
I got home and had a big sandwich for dinner w/ ham, turkey, lettuce, tomato & onion. I was really tired and didn't FEEL like preparing anything for tmrw, but I went ahead and threw some veggies in my roaster pan and roasted them in the oven just so I could have SOMETHING cooked and ready in the frig....broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, carrots & mushrooms....weird combo but I was too tired to care, lol. I also took some chicken sausages out of the freezer to thaw, so they'll be ready in the frig tmrw when I get home from work and I can just throw them in the oven...they only take about 10-15 mins to cook. I've got some leftover salad in the frig from dinner at mom's last night that I'm taking for lunch tmrw w/ raspberry vinaigrette...I'm going to put some sliced deli chicken on it, that I made my sandwich with today. Also taking another banana, some more watermelon & a couple of pieces of dark chocolate....I had a chocolate craving today and hit the evil vending machine for some peanut M&M's....Doh! But that won't be happening tmrw...the dark chocolate I'm bringing is 45 cals a piece...much better choice.
Still trying to figure out how to get my water in. I drank (1) 32 oz glass of water over the course of the day, and had to run to the bathroom to pee 7 or 8 times. I got away with it today because Staci was there to answer the phone, but I don't see how I'm going to get away with it next week. I drank most of yesterday's water after 7pm last night, and I got up 3 different times in the middle of the night to pee....so my sleep was interrupted 3 different times. If I can't drink it at work because of all the bathroom breaks, and I can't drink it at night because it messes up my sleep....I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to do to get all my water in. I'm a little bit frustrated with that right now. I drank another 32 oz glass when I got home this evening...but that's only 2 for the whole day, and I usually drink 4.
A couple of you asked about my baby Scarlette. She's trained on pee pads, so I put 2 down for her this morning, side by side, and she did just fine. She was very happy to see me when I got home, but she didn't act like she was mad at me for leaving her for so long, so that's a plus. It's hard to leave her after spending every day with her...but Momma needs a paycheck! :)
I'll be headed to bed in about an hour or so...hope everyone is doing better than me with their weight loss! :)
