Happy Turkey Day Canada!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends & family....

May your stuffing be tasty,
May your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
May your pies take the prize,
May your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

Ok so first off I want to apologize for not being around for like 8's been crazy around here.
There has been a few changes in my routine and it has thrown me out of wack. Hopefully by the end of this week I will be more focused.

So what has been so crazy you ask?

I got a new job! Actually I start tomorrow. It is a Accounts Representative position with a Headhunting agency. They have been around for 25 years and well known. I am very excited. Last week was full of interviews, and one-on-ones with the staff. All in all I was offered the position on Friday, so it all happened very fast.

Then I started freaking out cause I was like "What the Hell am I going to wear?"

You see losing 60 lbs puts a damper on all of the "business attire" you own. I basically have to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe. That's the fun part, the shitty part is spending the money on clothes that hopefully won't fit me in the next couple of months. Then I am going to have to do it all over again.

What helped ease the pain of spending the money a little bit was the $100 cash prize I won in the B.O.O.B.S Back to Basics Challenge. That's right I won 1st place in my category. I lost like 8% between July & September. I was very excited to get the email congratulating me. Then I was told $105 was deposited into my paypal account.....I went ape shit!!! I figured I would get some kind of prize in the mail, boy was I wrong.....
Another positive this week was I made it past Week 1 in Shrinkvivor. Our team didn't win the idol this week, but we did lose our member Erin. I managed to get in 334 minutes of exercise and not one bite of fast food to complete our challenge. This weeks challenge was the same for exercise minutes, but the mini-challenge was to get enough sleep. I definitely don't have a problem doing that! You can keep up on my Shrinkvivor stats by clicking on the tab at the top of the page.

I have decided to start doing my "official" weigh in's on Wednesdays now only because that's when I have to do it for Shrinkvivor. When this is done I will probably move it back to Saturdays.
Let's just say so far this week I'm doing great and it's a loss. Let you know on Wednesday!!!

Ta-Ta for now as I need to start beautifying my face for Thanksgiving with the family. I'm going to have to maintain self control today, at least I don't like pumpkin pie.....that should help
