Quick updates…

I know, I know.  This is an HR blog and I promise I won’t stray too often, but I did promise an update in my earlier post.

1. I started the cleanse last Friday.  I began by weighing myself and measuring my waist, my right thigh, and my right bicep.  Oof.  I did the cleanse about 75-80%.  I stuck to the main principles which were to eat a TON of vegetables and avoid most carbs and processed foods.  Done.  Mostly.

Today I would like to report to you that in one week I lost 10 pounds and 2.5 inches off my waist.  I figured such a dramatic waist change might be due to measurement error but I did it multiple times the first Friday and again today.  And I also buttoned a pair of pants that weren’t even close a week ago.  Lost a half inch on thigh and no movement on the bicep.  Yet.  A lot of this is water weight, I know.  Still.  TEN POUNDS!

Definitely going to keep it up. Not as strict as this week, but in the same vein.

Also it finally stopped raining so I can walk and bike now!  Yea!!

2.  I am still reading and enjoying my book.  Look for a post about that soon-ish.  I’m back in school now so I have a gigantic Pharmacology book and a lot of French history texts to read as well.  My brain kinda hurts just thinking of it all.

3.  I am no longer applying for this position.  I got a little more inside info and it’s not for me.  The job search continues.  I’m trying to stay upbeat.  The sunshine is definitely helping.  I’ve also decided that I’m just terrible at cover letters.  I can write anything else in the world but not cover letters.  Might have to find a pro for assistance.

4.  I have another post in the works (absolutely HR-centric) about my favorite thing in the world EVER (it’s a surprise), and I’ve lined up my first guest blogger who will be teaching me all about FMLA, a topic on which I am far from expert.


So…things are moving right along!  I’m going to take the long weekend to do some studying (and a mountain of laundry).  You guys enjoy your holiday and inauguration weekend as well and I’ll catch ya next week!
