Back at work

So it's the first day back after my lovely 10 day vacation. I probably talked to less than 5 people during that whole week and this morning in the meeting I was racing ahead of people in terms of going through information. I told them it was because I was practically a hermit for a week and I've forgotton my social skills :)

Food wise for the week wasn't terrible nor was it perfect. I've started writing times next to the food in my tracker again. Like when I had breakfast, the snack, lunch and so forth. It's interesting to see where I fall off track if it happens and also how long breakfast keeps me full sort of thing. I'm all about data really, which I suppose makes me a geek. Hey, I don't mind that at all.

Yesterday I went through all my shorts and dressy stuff for Vegas. 3 pairs of shorts still fit and actually fit better. I discovered I own a lot of tank tops but after my skin cancer scare two years ago I've embraced sleeves as shoulders can be zapped by the sun pretty bad. Of course I'll have my go to Ombrelle sunscreen. I had also thought of trying mystic tan before I went but now I'm embracing my paleness.

The dress I bought at Old Navy eons ago looks great. When I first tried it on it showed all the lumpy parts and now the only lump is in the belly area and pretty much disguised by the dress. In my attempt at accessorizing I bought a silvery/black scarf to wrap just under the bust of the dress to play off the empire waist. I'll definitely take pictures in Vegas so you all can see.

Work wise so far so good, eased right back in to the rigamarol. Oh yes, on Thursday they let me know they found a dead mouse under my desk....yes I know...ewwwwwww! Babies had been found earlier in the week all perished in other locations of the office. I don't think the mouse and I were co-habitants of my office when I was here the week before. They probably came in via the back door that was probably propped open to transport something. Office is clean and now fine now but boy was I happy not to be here for that.

So excited about Biggest Loser tonight, I need to get me a dvr. Big Brother and Biggest Loser on at the same time. I'm going to the pot luck tonight so if I'm home in time I'll watch Big Brother as I'm taping Biggest Loser. If I miss Big Brother I can always read the re-cap.

I'm kind of excited about the new tv season I'm looking forward to Chuck, Reaper, Bionic Woman for sure in terms of new shows. Happy to see Heroes back too.

School starts on the 17th too, so it will all be about time management and workouts are the priority. I have 16 weeks of coupons and I'm gung ho.

This week I weigh in on Thursday so I'm very focused.

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

Wow, I can't believe you're leaving for Vegas so soon! I am excited for you! I got you a little something intended for this trip, but it looks like it'll be too late, so you'll just have to go somewhere else fabulous later. :)

And I for one am not surprised that your clothes are fitting so well -- I TOLD you you looked fabulous the last time I saw you! :) Take lots of pictures!!
