Got hit yesterday

As I was leaving my house at lunch a giant 16 wheeler truck that I was
behind decided to back up because he wasn't going to clear the curb.
The fork lift on the back of his truck got me. Luckly it was the fork
lifts tire that did the damage.

Normally I don't drive the jeep but with the new job it is my only
option. The hubs was a little sad I think. This is his baby.

The good news is we should be able to get it fixed without us paying a
thing.

Loving this new schedule

New job is going great!

I am beginning to understand my job as each day progresses. Not that I
didn't know what I would be doing, but figuring out the process.

I am loving the schedule! I wake up about 6:00 or 6:15 and I read my
bible, eat breakfast, put on a load of laundry, etc. This morning I
worked out at home!
Tomorrow I'm thinking I might even try and run.

Yesterday I ran errands at lunch and today I came home and prepped
dinner.
WOW! I feel so productive with the new job schedule!

My first event to help with is Friday! Wish me luck.

Best Ice Cream ever

I wish I has more photo's so I could show you how they make this ice
cream. They use what looks like a drill to mix it up. It puts marble
slab to shame. Another one of our stops when we visit.
Spill the Beans-Greenville, SC

Strossner's

This is by far one of the best little bakeries ever. As you can tell
by the pictures below.
They have probably the second best pimento cheese I've ever had. My
moms ranks #1!
Everytime we come to Greenville we make a quick stop.

Last Day

Well, I finally made it. Today is my last day on the job. When I gave my notice 7 weeks ago, I had no idea it would fly by like it has.

I am still in awe that today is the final day of work. I have been here 5 years, so it is sort of an investment I've made. It will be a little sad to leave, but I am super excited about the next job I'm taking.

This weekend we didn't do much. It was so wonderful to sit and relax.

As for WW news. I am still counting points and honestly doing really well. I am excited about that. I'm still eating tons of fruit and some veggies. I wish I was better at the veggies, but the fruit has been so good, that I would rather eat it than anything. I am way exceeding the 5 a day requirements so that can't be a bad thing.
I am almost certain I am going to join WW again. Actually, I am a lifetimer so I'm actually just going to start attending meetings again. I am up some from my goal, so they might make me pay. When I say up, I am up maybe 4 lbs from my goal weight. When I set my goal weight back several years ago, I did it on the high end so I would have a little wiggle room. That can have its good and bad to it. I do still work for them though, so they may not make me pay. Will see when I go. I just need that scale accountability. I seem to really succeed when I have that. At least I have the last 2 times I've gone to meetings and weighed in.
First time I did WW I lost about 30 lbs. I quit and did it on my own. We all know what eventually happened. I gained 15 of it back.
Second time I joined, I lost the 15 plus about 10 more.
Both times I went and weighed in and most of the time stayed for the meeting. I saw HUGE success with that.
So, I'm going to give that a go. I really want to drop about 20 lbs again. That will get me comfortably back to what I want to be.

With my new job being in the same town I work, I should have more time for early morning workouts. I'm actually looking forward to getting some working out in before work. Meaning free time at night!! WOW, that is going to be so nice!

So tomorrow the hubs and I are headed to South Carolina. We are going to a conference again. We enjoy that, so we are headed out tomorrow morning.
I will probably check in a few times from the road. Might keep me accountable to eat good while gone.

Next time I'll post I will be an employee of a new company.....Excited!!!
