bmccrary's Journal, 08 August 2012

Hello buddies! I missed journaling yesterday because I had a very exciting day. I had an interview for a new job! And It's more up my alley of what I want to do with my life :-p not to mention more money, which is always a plus. The interview went swimmingly. They loved me. And why wouldn't they, I'm too charming for my own good :)A half hour later they e-mailed the application and paperwork for a background check. So, everyone, cross your fingers for me and let's get some good news!

I've also been doing very well on the eating front! I've been staying around my RDI while adherring (not SUPER strictly) to the Eat to Live plan. I have my slip ups, but they are logged and accounted for. I'm almost back down to my lowest weight that is logged in here bc it went to sh*t when the BF came back.

You guys, yesterday, I was so strong. My roommate (stick skinny 116lbs AND eats whatever she wants not fair) got chinese from Yummy House, which is arguably the best Chinese food in Tampa, and got WAY too much for herself. Of course it was Orange Chicken and an entree of the pan fried wide noodles with seafood. OMG it looked soooooooo good. I did have a little piece of each just to taste. It tasted BETTER than how it looked. I wanted to devour it! But I didn't. I went to the gym instead :) Then I came home to shower and picked up the BF. We stopped at the gas station for snacks. He got my favorite Cheese Puffs. AAAAHHHHH! I didn't have not a one! I did have to have a little piece of dark chocolate just to taste something I loved. Lol. So yeah, chinese food that i've been craving for a couple weeks and cheese puffs my favorite snack. It wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. It's my birthday week so I have to be strong so I can look good in my dress :)

Anyway, that was my day yesterday. I hope everyone has a great day and hopefully I can be as strong today as I was yesterday! Also, send me some good vibes about that job. I need a good change in my life :) TTFN FS Buddies!

Laugh! I'm not a buddy, but was intrigued by the use of green text ;) Looks like you had a wild day, and I'll cross my fingers that you get the job. I'm looking forward to starting a clinical rotation in a few weeks that I'm hoping will land me a job invitation as well, if all goes well. But I'm happy to read about people being hired on anywhere, the way the economy has been for a decade...

Good luck with the follow through on the new job, and fabulous work saying NO to the extra food. I finally figured out that no person, place, event, holiday, birthday, etc. was worth giving up my health and positive life choice.
