Today marks the end of the first week in my weight loss challenge. I think I’ve done pretty good. I exercised so much more this week than I have in a long time. I spent some time at the Ymca and am working on a goal of walking on the treadmill longer and faster. I also branched out and tried some new things on my Wii Fit that I thought I wasn’t able to do. I actually did pretty well! I’ve been eating healthier, counting calories, and drinking lots of water. I have more energy and I’m determined to do more.
Tonight I went to the Wives of Faith Nashville Chapter meeting. We are just starting up and only had 3 of us tonight, but that’s one more than last time! We have one more lady who is going to join us, but she wasn’t able to make it tonight. I’m SO glad I found this group. It means so much to me to have local military wives to get to know. Especially during deployment. They understand exactly what I’m going through. Even though I’ll be moving later this year, I know I’ll still have friends here in Wives of Faith when I move back.
In other news…
I’m so excited. I got the nanny job. I start on Tuesday! I’ll be working 5 days a week, just a few hours a day, which is perfect for me. Especially since I’ve been unemployed for almost 2 years. My new boss has even said it’s ok for me to bring my laptop so I can still talk to my husband when he’s online. That means SO much. She said “Of course! He’s overseas fighting for our freedom. It’s the least I can do.” I am so glad that I found a job with a good christian boss who somewhat understands what I’m going through in my life right now. I think we’ll become friends as well.
Well ladies, (and gents?) I must be off to bed now. I have to get in a more normal routine now that I’m employed. (YAY!) I pray you all have a GREAT Monday! 🙂
Yay for the new job and I’m so proud of you for embarking on your weight loss challenge!!
