And so it's Friday. Thank goodness! I've been coming in early to work the last couple days (like 4:30 in the morning kind of early) and I'm seriously tired. My oldest isn't feeling well. I'm pretty sure she has the flu. I'm very lucky my mom is around to watch her during the day but she's waking up a lot at night.
I had my annual review at work yesterday. It went VERY well. Turns out they love me! I got a decent raise (first decent one in awhile) and a small bonus that will help me get caught up on my student loan payments. I also found out that I have an interview of sorts (they're calling it a "discussion") for a management role with a different part of my company. If the right offer came about through this, it would involve a long distance move to a much colder climate and a very challenging workload. On the one hand, I'm excited for the opportunity; on the other hand, I'm kind of nervous. We'll see how it goes. It would definitely have to be the right offer and my company is notoriously cheap so I don't think they'll get in the ballpark to where I'd move for the position.
I'm doing Week 2 Day 3 of my 5k program today. I packed my gym and I'm ready and raring to go. I have Latin Heat tomorrow so I'm excited about that. I did a preliminary weigh in this morning and I've lost 0 lbs so far this week. I seriously don't know how this could be possible when I'm actually watching what I eat and working out. All through December, I ate what I wanted and drank what I wanted and didn't work out and lost 4 lbs. Ugh! I'm trying not to let it get to me because my official weigh day isn't until Monday and this could be some kind of fluctuation type thing but it's tough not to be discouraged by it.
It's official. My hair is falling out. I've always had really thick hair so I'm used to losing some in my brush or in the shower but this crazy! Luckily, I've read enough blogs to know that this is pretty normal and it can last awhile but then my hair will grown back in healthier and shinier than ever. RIGHT!?!?! I've tried the Biotin but it doesn't seem to be helping. Any other tips?
Well, I guess that's about it for me. Hope everyone has a fantabulous weekend! And, of course, I leave you with a Friday Funny...
