A little nervous

I'm training for a real job tomorrow. One where I actually have to wear real clothes (meaning not my usual uniform of jeans or yoga pants). I wasn't even looking for a job because goodness knows, it's not like I don't have enough work that I'm already doing. But a woman from my church called me last Friday and asked me if I'd be interested in working as the admin assistant in the campaign office of candidate in the upcoming provincial election. It's only temporary (4-5 weeks) and the pay made it impossible to turn down. On one hand, I'm really looking forward to it (hello- adult conversation!!) but on the other hand, I have to wear real clothes and get the kids to the babysitters every day. I realize that most people do that everyday anyways but I've been spoiled since I had kids and have been able to work from home. But, I'm trying to stay positive and look at it as an adventure.

So like I said, tomorrow I have to go to training... it's at some fancy hotel and they are providing both breakfast and lunch. Uh oh... it's the first time since I recommitted to WW that I'm not in control of my food. I'm a little worried... but there's got to be healthy choices, right? I worked out extra hard and a little longer today just in case. I figure I'll bring along an apple and my big bottle of water and hope for the best.

That also meant that I had to go shopping today and I got some awesome deals at Cotton Ginny. It's not normally a place that I shop but I'm glad I stopped in there today. I got a new winter coat (needed one desperately as I've been wearing this butt ugly bright orange *thing*), two cute sweaters, a down vest and a skirt all for under $100! My usual tendency when shopping is to buy things too big. They end up looking like crap on me and make me look even bigger. I didn't do that today! And when I tried everything on when I got home, I looked pretty darn good! LOL So - if you need any clothes, check out Cotton Ginny as they have 50% off already reduced prices.

Anyhow.... time for Biggest Loser :) Wish me luck for tomorrow!
