Well I have some news to be proud of--I received a job promotion at work. We had a lot of "restructuring" of personnel and I was ultimately moved from being an accounting clerk to customer service/teller to a lending assistant. I love my new position as a lending assistant and it is so much LESS stress!
I love my new boss! She is so easy going and laid back but tough at the same time. We have very compatible personalities which makes each work day so much more enjoyable.
My sister-in-law recently was engaged about a month or so ago, so now we are in the wedding planning stage with her. She has decided to get married in March of 2014. Due to receiving the new job which is in a different town, I had to change up my weight loss management. I no longer have any time to stop by the track to walk in the mornings or in the afternoon because I now have a 45 minute commute each day.
I am still wearing my fit bit and striving for at least 8000 or more steps a day, but I don't worry about how far I am walking other that daily steps. I have borrowed my aunt's Zumba DVDs and have been using them the past 3 weeks. What FUN! I have thoroughly enjoyed working out to these. The workouts are so fun and so fast paced (meaning time just flies) that it doesn't feel like actual work. All of my other "workout" tempts have failed because that was what they were WORK; it was hard to find some that were actually fun to do.
I am still taking classes through the University of Phoenix and I am still selling Avon (www.youravon.com/nbaker11) along with having to manage everyday family life. The only thing that I can't fit into my schedule is the couch to 5k training. Zumba fills that void and I am still loosing weight and hopefully I will be down to my ideal look by the time my SIL's wedding rolls around next year.
