JOB: I got the job!! After the first interview, I was called back a week later by the manager of the Juniors dept. She hired me on the spot! I was so excited and she is just great! I'm working min. 20hrs a week and able to pick-up shifts to add if wanted. I love the girls I'm working with and they seem to like me too. They are all under age 24 LOL but it's what I wanted. I found out that talk has been going around about some woman who "chose" to work in the juniors dept. A woman said to me after she was covering a shift in this dept with me and said it wasn't that bad, and I said that's why I wanted to work here, she said, "You're the one who people are talking about" LOL Love it!! That's because all the other areas are boring and this area keeps you moving! Busy as hell, but that's what I like. Hubby has been wonderful too! If he gets home before me, dinner is waiting and sometimes a yummy drink. When I get home late, the dishes are cleaned and things are picked up. He greets me at the door with the biggest smile and hug too. We are actually closer then ever, if that is possible. Ashley even seems more appreciative of me and our time together. This was a great choice I think. Plus, I'm not home bored all day feeling lazy LOL
JUSTIN: He's been at his job for awhile now, still living with my dad, but we are seeing him more on his days off. He misses being here and I think he's going to find a job here and move back to this area. All his friends and family are here. We told him this would happen, but he didn't listen and had to find out for himself. I get so happy when he surprises us and walks through the door! I miss him so much when he's gone! I always ask if he needs anything like clothes, products, anything and he always says no. I guess the only mothering I can do for him is cook him a favorite meal and give him lots of hugs :)
WEIGHT: This has been an interesting summer. I got up to 146lbs, out grew most of my pants and all of my shorts. I had to buy two pairs of shorts (that was all I was willing to pay for). Going up a size was horrible to say the least! I tried out Insanity for a few weeks with hubby, but when he started working outside the home again, that became a yucky thing to do before dinner, so we ended it. I stopped walking or doing anything else too. While sitting around at home all day, I ate out of boredom. I felt unhealthy with each passing week and was so happy when I got the job and started being active again and out of the house. While working, I don't eat as much and I'm always on my feet. I have lost five pounds because of those changes, but have another ten to go. Four days ago I started watching what/when I eat to keep the weight loss going. I eat mostly protein and veggies all day, but come dinner time I will have a starch to keep me satisfied. So far I don't feel deprived of anything, and because I'm not eating the heavy type carbs all day, if I choose to have a treat, I have it. I also did some lunges and squats, and some curls to get my muscles back. I noticed that I am flabbier and I don't like that at all! I will begin walking again when Ash starts school this week, so I'm hoping things get back to normal.
Well, that's what's going on in Coley's World.
I will be back soon :)
