Last week the j-o-b was seriously crazy y'all....I clocked so many hours of overtime (unpaid overtime -- due to being a salaried employee), that I should ask for a day off....soon. My apologies to my real world friends for blowing them off....don't go there....as well as to some of my blogging friends who've called to check in on me & I still haven't returned their calls....I should be punished, I know.
Over the last few weeks, I became quite proud of how everyone in my department came together during crunch time. My department was working like mad to make our Monday morning deadline....We took the concept of "teamwork" to a new level...even my manager showed a side of himself that I hadn't seen yet, and it was a nice change. As I walked out of my office LATE Friday night, it felt like 100 pounds of pressure & stress just dissolved. This week should be a helluva lot more relaxed. I might even get crazy & leave my office building at lunch for a quick fling in the park to grab a bite to eat.
Speaking of eating, I've been tracking my weight loss since the end of May, and I've sort of been a little flaky the last couple of weeks. I'm talking about being flaky in regards to NOT saying no to TWO slices of German Chocolate cake on Saturday, scarfing down a couple of cheeseburgers (2 separate occasions), and skipping out on the gym way too many times. With work getting back to normal, the diet, as well as the workouts should get back on track too.
On a positive note, I have lost enough weight that people in the office have noticed, and my favorite pair of baggy shorts (read: the only pair that fit comfortably) are now too loose to wear to the gym ....Yahooo!
