I think it's gonna be okay...

Okay, so here we are at the weekend and I have completed my first three days at work.  I know that it's barely the beginning but I have to say, I think I'm going to like it.

When I got to work yesterday, the owners were setting up for a surprise cookout!  So we had hot dogs and chicken on the grill plus salads and chips!  That was a very nice surprise for sure.  I like all of my co-workers and although the learning process is very slow, I think in time I'll probably understand what the heck I'm doing.  The commute is super easy (less than 5 miles from my house) and the hours are easy (12-5) so for now, it's a great way to ease back in to the workforce.

I have been doing a lot more walking this week but switched it to the Walk Away the Pounds DVD for the week.  I was short on time a couple of days and so it was a quicker walk with the DVD.  I can do 3 miles on the treadmill in an hour but I can also do 3 miles with the DVD in 30 minutes because of the pace.  I don't know why but I just can't go as fast on the tread.  So basically, I did 3 miles a day on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and then yesterday I did 4.  My legs are KILLING me!

I was going to walk today but I slept in until almost noon (and it was glorious) and my legs are just too sore.  I need a day to just not move around too much.  We're supposed to go to a BBQ with the band but it's raining - so basically it's almost 3:00 and I'm still in my jammies!  Honestly, if I had my way, we wouldn't be going anywhere and I'd stay like this all day and just bask in the long weekend.  

So not going to happen...

I am so happy for you to have found a nice place to work. It makes all the difference when the people you work for are nice. Good for you for walking. I need to do that. sigh
