Awesome and not so awesome

Fantastic news on the new job...they are actually going to be paying me more than my current job! I went in knowing I was going to have to take a pay cut but now I'm not!! How awesome is that?!

What has not been so awesome...my eating habits. Carbs, sugar, and more carbs and sugar. I know it's nerves because of the new job and trying to wrap up my old job so I'm trying to be gentle on myself. I need to remind myself that carbs and sugar do not make my anxiety go away. Plus carbs and sugar make me breakout which causes more anxiety.

I am excited about moving on to a different job. I have been unhappy at my current job for a couple of years now and I'm thrilled about moving on to a job with actual responsibilities and a job where I'll be using my degree!! But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. And although I've been unhappy about my current job, I have been able to have a very flexible schedule and have time to do lots of blogging/Facebooking/running at work. I'm going to have give those things up (at work anyways) but the trade-off is well worth it.

I think what I have the most anxiety about is a change in schedule. I like my schedule and I like a routine. Right now, I don't know what my routine is going to look like at my new job.

Anyways, I've got to get some paperwork overnighted to my new job so they can get everything set up for my first day (just 6 days from now!). Off to FedEx I go...

Yay yay yay!!!!! So excited for your new job. Your blogs about work have clearly indicated your unhappiness. So glad you have greener pastures to explore. :)

And congrats on becoming an aunt. It is a great experience. I hope your sister's pregnancy goes smoothly.

Don't beat yourself up about eating. Just try and make good choices starting now. Be kind to yourself.
