I haven't done THAT bad, really.
But, there is room for improvement.
My immediate manager was fired. Sometimes that can be a good thing. I won't know if it is good or bad, until I can look back on things, but it definitely creates a ripple in life. We work very closely together to oversee a department, and though I'm not his "equal" I've always been treated as one; we were a team.
So, it's a bit scary. The Unknown. The Transition. The Temporary Manager. My interim manager is someone who transferred out of our department. Many strengths, and a disaster left behind.
Needless to say, it's been an interesting week. I don't think I did stellar in the staying-on-track (with eating) department - BUT - I did stellar in the don't-quit-your-job department. I'm hanging in there. I'm trying to dig out whatever positives I can find (even if they aren't immediate).
I drank more beer than is permissible on a low carb diet (just one day, though), and I might pay for it on the scale tomorrow. However! I had a highly active weekend, and a very enjoyable Mother's Day.
And I'm back at it (or was back at it) Monday. A bit painful, but I managed to stay the course. That's what it's all about, staying the course.
Stress can throw you off, though. I'm definitely more tired. I feel completely draggy, which I didn't feel last week. I'd like that energy back, thankyouverymuch.
