Made it through the first two weeks at the new job. I think it's going to be great once I get going and learn some things! I miss my old job and the people I worked with, but I am glad I made the change. The new job is definitely going to better prepare me as I make my way through grad school and earn my LPC.

It's been a little difficult getting a good routine together with the new job and with school. Needless to say, I haven't walked or worked out the way I wanted to. I've been eating okay, but still not to the point of tracking. That will come soon enough! I've been drinking LOTS of water though! emoticon I don't usually have a problem with this part of it since I love ice water and I'm always thirsty emoticon

My big challenge this coming week is to get up one hour earlier than I have been. This will allow me plenty of time to get in a good walk in the morning, or to partake in my new favorite workout -- ZUMBA! emoticon I am a little late getting on this bandwagon, but I am glad I finally did! My mom bought this whole set of Zumba DVDs more than a year ago for us to try. She ended up giving them to me some time ago and I finally opened the box today. What a great workout! I have never sweat like that with other workouts I've tried. It felt great!

In other news, I got my CT results. It turns out the lump on my sternum is a hernia. I am grateful, for it could have been so much worse! It is a fairly small one apparently, and the best way to keep it from getting any bigger is to watch my portion sizes and try to cut out breads.... Could I ask for a better excuse? Aside from eating the way I want to anyway, it is the best way to prevent having to have surgery. Yay! emoticon

See ya SparkFriends!

    Yay for good(ish) test results. I am sure that is a relief. Glad your new job is going well. Good luck in school. I have done aqua zumba at my gym and the class was so much fun. Glad you are having fun with exercise. emoticon

    emoticon on the good test results!! Glad it's not going to have a huge impact on your daily life.

    Not to worry, *I'm* even farther behind than you - I still don't know what Zumba is!?!?! emoticon Lots of folks seem to like it, so it must be pretty good....

    emoticon too, on the water....I have to work at mine some and haven't worked my way up to 6 with any regularity. emoticon

    Have a super week!! emoticon
