So Far

I posted over on GP's blog that I've stuck to my weight loss efforts by not drinking pop or soda, depending on which term you use. The funny thing is it is only the 6th day into the year but I'm already beginning to feel a little better. I wonder if it's all in my head?

So far though, I have been eating healthy and keeping a food journal. I miss the days of being young and being able to eat whatever I want without consequence.

I have also started job hunting, as of last night. I am constantly reminded at work that people are getting laid off and that I should be blessed to have a job. While I recognize that times are hard, I don't feel that the economic crisis should keep me stuck in a job where they overwork me and underpay me, so I am back on the hunt. I had stopped for a while when I stopped having issues at work but I have big goals this year and they require me to bring home a higher salary.

I am trying to talk myself into going to the gym as I type this. I know that I need to and will go after I finish this post.

Sounds like you are off to a great start! I am gradually starting to feel better. I felt SO crappy and mean and headachey from my caffeine withdrawal, but its getting better. Good luck with your goals!!

Your résumé is the first step in the process of a strategic career move. The résumé is an essential piece to all types of job searching approaches, as well as playing a crucial role through the interview and selection processes.

One of the most useful techniques for constructing your résumé is to focus it on a specific target job, and then go through and deconstruct the deliverables of that job from other related job postings. Accomplishing this successfully will generate a résumé that not only opens doors toward future career success, but assists you in preparation for the interview process.

good luck on the job hunt!

girl, eating healthy is not that simple right? i'm participating in the challenge as well of course. and i'm doing weight watchers so i have to record what i eat anyway. omg...doesn't it make you feel like some shit is just not worth eating?

i can't see myself having another mcdonalds sausage biscuit. and lets not even talk about alcohol> :-(

Thank you for the job tip Jazzie!

YW!! I missed ya girl! Yes, counting calories suck! Actually being aware and tracking cals makes me stingy with what foods I give my calories to!

I stopped drinking Coke years ago and I almost immediately started losing weight (coupled with a little exercise). Nowadays it's a treat for me to have a Mountain Dew or a Coke. I only drink it three or four times a year.

Waters good too.

Hi Reggie, welcome!! I'm so jealous of how quickly men can drop weight if they change up something so simple as cutting as soda.

I've been trying to incorporate more water into my day. I sometimes add Crystal Light to my water just so that I don't get bored with the flavor.

I can't lie, I miss Sprite!!
