Hey y’all! Happy weekend! Happy New Year! Happy everything!
Quick Life Update
My life changed completely in the first two weeks of the year with lots of positive changes. This included a new job with better compensation, a better work environment, and a better-for me work style. Hurray!
Basically I get a paid hour off for lunch where I can workout or go for a long walk, which is amazing to have in the middle of the day and gives me a nice break and time to workout. My job also involves walking to another department which means I walk about 2 miles during the day at work. That’s pretty awesome! I’d much rather have 2 miles of walking built into my day than be stuck at my computer and chair for 9-10 hours like I have been in the past. All in all the new job is FANTASTIC and I’m so excited about it.
I’ve been adjusting to the new schedule and workload and trying to learn everything possible so blogging has taken a backseat to that and other real life activities…
Like my mom’s birthday! Yesterday my amazing mom turned 66 and we celebrated by taking her to Benihana.
She wanted to go someplace she had never been before so it was super fun! It was very delicious and I came home with leftovers to take for lunch – always a plus!
It’s fun now that my siblings and I are all adults and can take my mom to new places and give her gifts she wants. Treating her after all she has done for us is a real pleasure for me.
Today we are attending another birthday celebration for Jason’s mom (their birthdays are just a weekor so apart). I’m super excited that I get to celebrate both of these lovely ladies and spend so much time with family over the weekend.
So that’s been the last week – lots of work, adjusting to new stuff, and celebrating with the people I love! GREAT start to the new year! 2016 is kicking butt!
Top Posts This Week
I wanted to share the most popular blog posts from this week because several useful older posts are being shared a lot and they could help some newbies to the blog.
Clearly everyone this week is getting motivated to tackle the new year or start the AdvoCare challenge! I started my challenge a bit late this year because I started my new job on the 11th when everyone else started. I didn’t quite know what to expect at work so I delayed my start date a bit to fit my new lifestyle change.
I hope everyone that started something new this week or this month is off to a fantastic start!! If anyone needs some help or motivation feel free to reach out to me via comment, email or social. Now that I know what to expect from my new day job I’ll be able to be a better cheering squad for y’all! :)
