It's been a rough week and a half for me. I'm hanging in there and I'm really proud of how I've done. In April of 2012, I left my travel job to take on a new opportunity for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, a cause that I support 150% and always will. It was originally a 12 month contract that was extended to 16 months. The end of the 16 months came on Friday. It was my last official day as a contract employee with CBCF and it was a hard day. To be honest it was a hard week. I loved working there, I loved the people who work there, I love the volunteers that work there and I loved the interaction with my co-workers on a daily basis. I've made some wonderful life long friends working there and I've met and made some wonderful friends on the daily train ride in.
It was a week full of challenges, from not eating through my emotions (very difficult for an emotional eater like me), to having lunch out with my co-workers on Thursday, to dinner out with my husband because I simply wasn't in the mood to cook!
I didn't get all of my walks in during the work day but I still got a lot of activity in. When I went to my new WW meeting place on Saturday, lo and behold I was amazed to see I had lost 1.3lbs.
I'm pretty surprised by that, I'm not quite sure how that happened, but I'll take the loss any way I can. :)
I'm also glad to know that I've got the coping skills to get through the week the way that I did. It was a hard week, leaving such wonderful people behind!
