Quick Update

Well...here I am...

...it's time for at least a quick update.

Things have been incredibly busy.  The trip across country was good and everything has gone relatively smoothly.  I came down with pneumonia right after we moved in and that slowed everything down for me.  It will take forever for the house to be totally unpacked - it's a little cluttered and a bit chaotic - but it'll do pig...it'll do.

Work is also kicking my ass, but I'm enjoying it.  The new environment the new work schedule - 10 hour days with a long commute is taking a bit of getting used to it.  Our entire routine has changed - a routine we've had for close to 20 years - and it is a big adjustment.  Interestingly, it's the first time hubster and I have NOT worked together in the same building.  We both off in different directions.  I think we'll overlap in time, but at this point I never see him.

With the new change in schedule, we get home late and are too tired to cook, so it's a quick pickup somewhere.  When time off comes, I've been trying to rest and get back to 100%.  I'll get there.  Failing to plan...well, we know what happens then...and it is indeed true.

As a result, I've had a difficult time.  I can feel that I've gained a little bit of weight and I'm trying to get it under control.  Today was the first day I kept my ducks in a row.  Both breakfast and lunch were in the cafeteria, but none of it was boxed food.  Breakfast was just sides of bacon and lunch was a salad with all fresh veggies and boiled eggs.  Dinner was meatloaf that hubster made since he got home an hour earlier than usual.  Sweet thing he is - he said that he didn't put any bread or oatmeal in it, but used cheese, onions, and mushrooms instead.  It was really good too.  That was the only thing we had for dinner.  We both appreciated the bit of time to just eat a meal at the table.

I came to bed this evening and thought I HAD to post something.  Writing about stuff helps.  I think my posts may be a little shorter, but I think that's fine - it's the conscious effort that matters.

I'm going to try and remember to weigh tomorrow morning.  I am NOT a morning person and really pisses me off that I have to get up at 4:30 a.m.  Hubster has the coffee ready the night before and brings me a cup before I bitch my way out of bed in the morning - bless his heart.

Anyway - that's it for now.  Sorry for the long absence.

Onward!
