Sorry,'s been a while

I owe you an apology.  I haven't written or commented on your posts in a few weeks and I feel like a slacker because of it.  Things have been hectic in my life and I'm just starting to get caught up.  I traveled for work two weeks in a row, which is always tough on me.  It's hard for me to be away from N for a couple of days at a time, let alone two back-to-back trips.  I ended up behind at work as a result of being out of the office and am still in email jail.  Oh,'s going to be fine.

To update you on my work saga, I GOT THE JOB!  I found out two weeks ago that my interviewing went well and I landed the job I wanted.  It's even a promotion, so D took me out on Friday night to celebrate.  It feels good to have that stress behind me.  Now I'm even busier at work while we move through the rest of the re-org.  I've been putting in long hours and have been working from home late into the evenings. 

As for my health, things are going well.  I've spent a fair amount of time working out to ease my stress.  I got a little behind during my traveling and think I put on a pound or two thanks to all the required four-course meals.  I'm not worried about it though.  I'm cutting my calories just a bit this week to even out and have been working out really hard.  It's nice to not be a complete slave to the scale!

Now that the weather is nice, I'm getting outside for more walks as well.  N has been a bit feisty this weekend, so we spent a fair amount of time walking outside.  I think it's time for me to invest in a Fuelband...I'd like the motivation of a daily step goal...

That's all for me.  I hope you all have a super week!


  1. WElcome back and congrats on the job!!! It is nice to sometimes step back and not worry about what the silly scale says. Work on being healthy and moving :)

  2. Welcome back. Life has been crazy lately, but just remember we are here waiting for you. Glad you are back. Hugs

  3. So glad to hear from you again.... Life is crazy for sure especially with summer coming up. The scale is just a number and seriously with all that traveling only 1 or 2 pounds isnt bad at all.... You got this and We've got your back :)

  4. Congratulations on the job! That is such a wonderful feeling. Nice work! :) We're here to listen and read as you get things "back in order."

  5. Ugh!

    Traveling for work is the worst!! I spent the summer working on a job site in Texas (we live in UT).... It's rough! Tough to find the energy to workout and I really don't care for the lower grade cardio machines at the hotel gym.... And you're forced to eat out! Huge portions and unhealthy temptations!

    Hope you get back on track this week and enjoy some family time!

  6. Congratulations on your promotion!!!!

  7. It happens to all of us! We all get behind, myself included. I'm trying to make more of an effort because I know how much support is needed. When people come and leave comments of support it is so encouraging!

    So I wish you congrats on your new job and keep the work outs coming! Decreasing that stress is a battle. Way to rock it out.

  8. I know you got the job because I am a twitter stalker but I am happy to hear it and that you are still keeping up with the exercising even though you were traveling. Congrats again

  9. Welcome back and glad to see you didnt lose focus on your goals by pushing as soon as you got back. COngrats on the job too!!! YAY!!! Keep working hard!
