Just touching base to let everyone know that I am still around..

Started a temporary job last Thursday, it's only for a week and a half but it's a paycheck. After I was offered the job to temp, I got a phone call from another company to interview on Tuesday for a permenant position. Keeping my fingers crossed that everything works out.

I purchased a used Nordic Track stationary bike. It's really nice keeps track of calories burned, heart rate, pulse, distance .. etc... paid $25 for it and it still looks brand new, probably about a year or so old. Will be using this on a daily basis along with some exercises and crunches. maintaining the 197 but it is bouncing now and hopefully will start going back down.. boy does eating wrong mess with the metabolism and slow things down. Gonna try not to do that again until I reach my goal weight.

Hoping everyone has a healthy and happy week!

Norma, congrats on the job(s). Hope you end up with the one you really want!

I already posted how good I think it was to get that bike in another discussion. I love my home equipment....so convenient.

We got to keep focused on our goals. Be it our day to day ones and the long term ones. Also, when we take a break, let's not forget to get back to our journeys.

Nice to see your blog. I know if I don't follow my seemingly small weight gains (why can't it be a loss!!!) that it will get out of control...again.

Keep up your good work. Let us know how you do with the job thingy, too. Good luck!

Norma J, I'm glad you are finding new jobs, even if some are temps, they will get you out with people which is always the best perk of working, other than the paycheck of course.
Don't look at your vacation eating as eating wrong. You ate what pleased you, and you had fun. There's nothing wrong with that, for the short term. It's just "payback time" and at least you acknowledge it and don't quit trying just because it's hard. What's life without some challenge , huh?

Enjoy the job, even though it is only a short one. I am looking for a job at the moment again too.

Enjoy the bike too. It will be good if it can become a part of your daily routine. For my exercise I have to travel to the gym, which is sometimes quite inconvenient - packing all your clutter, driving there, showering there, etc.

Yes, let's have a good week! My weekend was mixed - not so good with the eating on Saturday, but good and on calorie target on Sunday.
