Where has the week gone?

What a week. I have Monday and Tuesday off before starting the new job. Wednesday was nothing but orientation and OMG was it ever long and boring.

I officially started my job on Thursday. Everyone there seems to really nice. Right now the job seems pretty easy but I am sure it will get challenging.  I am really excited about it.

Food wise I didn’t go all that great this week. I didn’t feel comfortable bringing my lunch this past week as I didn’t know about schedules and what not. Next week I will be prepared.  Went out and bought a new lunch bag and ice bags so no excuses.

Want to give a shout out to Trish,Iamsucceeding, for helping me along this week. I hope to have more Internet access this week to keep in touch more with everyone.. Sorry Kim my water has been sparse but picking it back up.

I will WI tomorrow and see the damange which I know it wont be good. Next week I will be stepping up the exercise.

Chiquita Banana rocks the hosue! My son is in love with bananas. He would eat 3 or 4 a day if I would let him.  I normally take them with my breakfast or eat them as a snack with some yummy PB on them. Can’t go wrong with a good ole banana.

Have a good week everyone.

  7. That recipe sounds delish!

    I always felt the same way when starting a new job. You are trying to get a feel for the job, the co-workers, the schedule. Lunch is rough until you get into a groove.

    Hope you have a great week, Karla!
    Love you!
