The challenges here at FS and at work are keeping me focused and moving in the right direction with my way of eating and increased trips to the gym.

It feels good to re-focus on getting my weight back down. By the end of the challenge at work (8 weeks), I hope to be in uncharted territory and moving into weight levels I haven't enjoyed in 20 years. It will be tremendous. It is strange, though, how much more I care about letting others down (my challenge team) than letting myself down. It is a character flaw that I definitely need to work on....

Work has been stressful - to the point that I had a verbal altercation with a manager and a fellow employee. It all boils down to me over-working myself and wanting to quit just to escape. The latest overcommittment is taking on the entire work load of someone who is out on maternity leave as well as someone (a long time employee like me) who quit. Their last days were the same day and has led to me, foolishly, trying to pick up the pieces so that our department keeps humming along. It is stupid of me: but I am compelled to do so, and need to figure out why.

I have set a meeting on Monday morning with my supervisor, the manager I had the fight with, and me. I need to discuss my future with the company. I need to figure out a solution to my overwhelming work load. I need to present my solution, ask for their help, and then follow through. I will be giving up a lot (about 500 hours a year of overtime pay), but I need to do this.

Wish me luck!!

Finally, real progress. It has been hard getting back to the "committment to self" that is required for me to lose weight, but oh the joy when I commit! I realize this is the time of year when most people relax their committment, but I need to take advantage of this team challenge at work and get my WOE turned back around. I had a great week and I need to just keep going.

Today, I am doing food prep for my lunches for the week. I am excited to be able to make tasty food that is good for me and that satisifes my tastebuds as well. This week's taste extravaganza will be ground turkey, quinoa, brown rice, red peppers, and spanish/spicy seasonings to give it some zestiness.

I was able to work out four days this past week. I am a little sore, but that just means I am doing what I need to do and challenging my body to get better, stronger. The challenge moving forward is to just do it. 4-5 times per week. Even when I have too much to do at work. Even if I am tired.

I will just keep going. I will make my health and well being a priority. I will succeed.
