Life has been pretty busy since I came back from Chicago. I left two jobs and started a new one! Leaving both of my jobs was hard but totally worth it since now I’m doing what I’ve wanted to do for the last 8 years, work full-time as a librarian. I’ve been at my new job for almost a month and while I have a lot to learn, I’m really enjoying my library branch. My branch gets a lot of regular patrons so I’m currently trying to remember all their names plus the name of our regular volunteers. I’ve always been bad with names soo this is a challenge, lol. But, I’m definitely glad to be at this location and am loving every minute.
As far as my health is concerned, mannnn I’ve been eating terribly and am weigh more than I ever have before. I recently signed up for a nutritionist and she sends me meal plans each week and that helps, but I just want to see results faster. Yes, I know I didn’t gain this weight overnight but I’m impatient. I have been bringing my lunch to work almost everyday because the area I work in doesn’t have many food options near by and I don’t want to waste time driving and lost part of my lunch hour. I think as I continue to bring my lunch and limit the snacking I will see the pounds disappear. Another difference with this job is there aren’t baked goods in our break room everyday. My last two jobs always had food available and me being the sugar addict always had to have some. I’ve started setting mini weekly goals so I’m taking things slowly.
Before I go, just to throw in something about reading, I’m still doing that, of course. I’m currently at 67 books read for this year and still going strong! I have a longer commute these days so audiobooks and podcasts are my best friend.
I’m going to finish watching the Dodgers game now and hopefully they win! Sometimes watching these games stresses me the hell out 😀
