Today was my first day at my new job, the students aren't back yet so it is pretty quiet. Today I got my office key and my laptop computer. It's crazy how much space I have in this little office. I have so many bookshelves and drawers! I'll definitely be bringing all of my sociology related books here tomorrow, that should free up an entire bookcase at home. Maybe we can rearrange some things and create more space in our little apartment.
I can't stop thinking about how much God has provided for me over the last year. It's been a challenge for sure but God has always come through when we needed it most. The more I lean on Him and stop worrying the more fully he answers my prayers. It truly is amazing. One of my goals this year is to continue trusting in God's plan for me and not worrying about what the future holds. This job is only 3 semesters long, I'm not sure what comes after that but I trust that God knows. I just need to do my best at my job and my research and the right door will be opened.
This weekend I did really well with my eating. We are on January 4th and I've logged my food for 4 days straight and stayed within my calorie range. I've also gotten in about 90 minutes of exercise during the last 4 days. Not too shabby considering we had dinner at a friends on Saturday night and I'm still battling the head cold that my mom gave me for New Year's. I forgot to weigh myself this morning before breakfast so I'll be doing the final weigh-in for the 8 week Spark LA challenge tomorrow. I know that I'm down overall for the 8 weeks but I'm up from my low point of 201.2. I'm just going to keep on eating right and exercising and I should see some results next week. Maybe under 200 next week?
Over the Summer I reported that I had to remove my wedding ring. Well, I keep trying it on and it's getting closer, it goes over my knuckle but the base of my finger (whatever you call it) is really fat and so it doesn't go on all the way yet. My goal was to be able to put it on by the time school started on the 12th. That's 8 days away and while it could happen I don't think it's very likely. We'll see how close I get.
That's all for today! Happy Monday everyone :)
