I haven't given up!

Really I haven't! I'm only up 2 pounds even though for the last 2 weeks I've been very sporadic about eating, tracking, exercising and posting. Things have calmed down a little this afternoon so I thought I would have some me time.

Things are busy again at work which is good, I've applied for my DREAM job, my oldest dog had a tooth pulled, and we're starting to paint our house. It's been really crazy! I haven't heard anything from the dream job yet but I only sent off my stuff on Thursday. I'm more than perfect for this. I just hope they can see me through the tons of resumes I'm sure they are getting. My first thought was having to interview at this size...especially when part of the job involves New York and fashion designers. I promised myself I wouldn't worry about that because negativity is not what I need right now!

I spent 3 hours cleaning the fridge yesterday due to a Coke Zero explosion. If anyone is looking for some motivation to eat healthy, a sparkling clean fridge is the way to go! When I was making our lunches this morning, I was looking at the gorgeous array of food for the week all neatly organized on the clean white shelves. I can't help but be excited to cook it! And yes! It takes very little to excite me.

3 things I saw in the 'hood this weekend that were amusing and then I will let you go.
1. A new illegal street vendor selling 800 thread count sheets.
2. A drunk bum taking pictures in the middle of the street with a digital camera.
3. Someone asking at the deli counter why they don't offer peas on sandwiches.

Have a great week everyone. Can't wait to see what y'all have been up to!


  1. I've got my fingers crossed for you on that dream job!
    I'm in my dream job now. From the time I applied/interviewed to the time I was hired was a period of about 3 months. I hope things move along more quickly for you. :)
    And by the way, your hood sounds crazy...but very interesting!

  2. Well, ya can't get street entertainment like that just anywhere, now can you? Wishing you lots of luck on the dream job. We'll keep a good thought on your behalf. I just may take some time to clean my fridge one of these days. It is full to the brim....of only healthy stuff, of course.

  3. Good luck with the dream job. Painting can create a mess, but it makes such a difference when it is finished!

    Peas on a sandwich, huh? Well, it would be healthy, but I would never have thought of that!

  4. That it such exciting news about applying for a dream job - I hope you get it!!! Be sure to keep us posted. There's nothing like shaking life up a little bit to keep it interesting.

    Know just what you mean about a clean fridge. Crazy as it sounds it really does give me a boost when I see things so clean and organized. One less thing I have to worry about.

  5. Thanks for the laugh. I'd like to try peas in a sandwich, but how would you contain them? Reminds me of the poem:

    I eat my peas with honey,
    I've done it all my life.
    It makes my peas taste funny
    But it keeps them on the knife.

    All the best on your dream job!!!!
