Movin' On Up

Up the scale, and up at work.  I got on the scale this morning and I'm up 3 lbs.  I've eaten every meal from a restaurant this week.  I warned in earlier posts that things were crazy here at work, and only going to get worse.  Well the boss fired Staci on Monday afternoon, and handed me her job on Tuesday, with a $2.50/hr raise.  Now...all I have to do is LEARN HER ENTIRE JOB.  I've been working overtime all week.  Yesterday I put in 13 hours...from 7a-8p.  Got here at 6:45am this morning.  Sleepy.  Need coffee.  Still have a plan to grow Errand Fairy on the side even as I progress at this job....more details on that when I'm actually awake.  Oh, and I noticed I lost a couple of followers this week.  Too bad I don't care about that or I'd expand more on the subject.  :)  Have a great day friends.  Things are rough now, but they're bound to get better.  More later....

  2. hang in there Tammy....you are in a place of change and mixed feelings and work stress...keep it simple as far as focusing your direction . you got a raise, job security right now. gotta get the food stuff under control..you can shop and plan this weekend. not saying you can afford to gain more -(I know how that is) But you'll feel more in control when you can plan healthy food and snacks AND tackle your new job.

  4. Girl, you sound wound up and tired! Im glad to hear about the raise, but not the extra hours. Hopefully it will balance out for you soon. The 3 lb are nothing, you will lose those once you get settled in the job, so dont stress over it. im still a follower, though I havent been around much lately. just started a diff blog and am giving up "off the couch"....come by and check it out if you get time. lol. take care of yourself!

  5. You'll never lose me, baby! You're stuck with me as long as you'll have me. The work situation sounds pretty ridiculous - very challenging. As long as you're getting paid for all that overtime, I guess there's some benefit.

    I'm sending hugs, prayers, support and love. Take care of yourself! No one else will do it for you. Love you Tammy!

  6. Ugh..restaurant meals KILL me. I think part of it is all the dern sodium. I always shoot up on the scale when I'm eating out. Hate hate hate it!

    Good luck with your job adjustment..it sounds rough.

  7. I am not going to unfollow you. I think that you need support, right now. If not in weight loss, in life in general. So, I am still here and reading. Hang in there, girl. Everything will fall into place as you can do it.

  9. Ugh, that does sound stressful. You can do it, though!
    I have zero followers at this point (haha), but that's okay...I'm going to keep writing and besides....we all still have lives, right? Don't worry if you lose a few--there will always be people with short attention spans out there. Just do what you need to do. I'm rooting for you!

  10. I'm right there with you, girlfriend. Eating out is a game changer. I've been traveling and the scales not going up, but it ain't going down either.

    Congrats on the promotion/raise!
