Weigh In 1-9-12

Weigh In Wednesday is here!
Weight Last Week: 168.5
Weight Today:  165
Difference: -3.5

Oh yeah!  That's right...That's a 3 lb loss!!  Most of it water?  Probably but who cares?!?!  That's a 3 lb loss baby!

So I'm feeling really good about that as there's been no exercise... just a concentration on food and then not obsessing on the weekend.  So happy to finally see a loss on the scale.  It's a great start to the new year!

The girls had a great first day yesterday!  My youngest said that the material is a little harder (I think she's just nervous) but that the teacher and kids are nice and that she likes it.  My oldest says the material is about the same, just a different format/procedure.  I spent about an hour with her teacher in the morning getting the lay of the land and she seems very nice.  Here's hoping Day 2 goes as well as Day 1.

I'm also trying to figure out what our routine should look like.  Unlike in AZ where I was off when I picked up the girls, I have to put in another couple hours at work after I pick them up from school so we have to change things up a bit with homework and play time.  Of course, we don't have extracurriculars to figure out yet.  Maddie thrives on routine, so I hope we can settle into something resembling a new normal in the next week or so.

In work news, I'm doing a peer interview today for an open position in our group.  He's from Ohio so I'm already not thrilled.  LOL.  On top of that, I believe his old role was more similar to what I do now as opposed to what we're hiring for.  So is he qualified?  Absolutely.  For my job...that's a moral pickle for me.  I mean...we don't need 2 people who do what I do and the role we're hiring for is technically a step down from what I do.  I'm hesitant to hire my replacement, ya know?  We'll see how this goes.  

Here's a Hump Day Happy Thought to get us through the week...
