New Job. New Struggles.

So I have been at my new job for 3 days now. If you didn't read my last post, I got a job working at a movie theater as a busser. Its awesome because I am around my best friend sometimes and other people that are pretty cool too. Plus, I am moving a lot by taking drinks and food out to the customers and climbing stairs. I am for sure getting my 10,000 steps in.

I have also started to get up at 7 am and go workout in the mornings. I used to never be able to work out in the mornings. I was crabby and the thought of my body functioning at that level, that early never clicked in my head. But the past couple of days, I have been wide-eyed and kicking ass in the gym. I even got in a late night work out and it was awesome because hardly anyone was at the gym. I love that. Plus, my sleeping has been ahhhmazing!

Right now, the challenge for me is the food that we serve. Pretty much everyone who works there eats the food we make and they get 50% off too. So as of right now, I am the only one who brings a lunch to work. I honestly feel like the odd man out. I've heard comments though like, "Wow, that's probably healthier to bring a lunch." Yeah, I guarantee it is. The food smells and looks amazing. Plus anytime you want something to drink there is a bunch of soda just right there to fill a cup up with. They do also have water, which is great because I can't just walk around with a bottle of water and sip out of it, so I fill up a cup and drink water like that. So, that's basically my thoughts as of right now. I just wanted to let my blogging friends in on what is going on.

Do you bring a bag lunch to work?

    I've been trying to bring my lunch to work more and more. It's hard because, in journalism, we lunch out a lot. Always on the run or always a lunch meeting to attend. I imagine it's a ton harder for you because the food is right there in your face. Hang in there, playa. You'll be happy that you brought your lunch despite the razzing you'll get from co-workers.

  2. That's really awesome that you made a plan and are sticking with it (bringing your food). I can sympathize a little with you. I used to work at M&M Mars and there was always FREE candy and FREE ice cream. It's really hard when you have temptation staring you in the face. You're doing great!

  3. I have always brought a lunch to work, it's tough to be faced with temptation! Gotta arm yourself however you can. :) Keep up your good work!

  4. I'm having trouble with bringing my food to work as well...It's so much easier sometimes to just go out or eat what's there. Good for you!

  5. Hey Molly. I've really enjoyed reading your blog, you're really funny and cute. Lol, I first came here because of your name. My mom calls me Fluffy or Fluffy Kitten--Kitten because as a baby I sounded like one when I cried. Kitten is my favorite. ;@) Congratulations on your beautiful treks in your life, you're doing great. You're a bad chick.

    Be Blessed
