Aw shoot...

Things have been changing around here.  For those that are friends with me on Facebook this won't come as news but if you aren't, well then, buckle up.  In my past life I worked in IT as everything from first level Help Desk to Independent Consultant and lots of jobs in between.  As my contract as an Independent Consultant ended it felt like a good time to take a break and then I reached my goal weight and became a Weight Watchers employee.  About 18 months later I took a part time job working at a running store which ended up being a full time job at the store.  But... there was always a part of me that missed IT and a normal work week schedule.  So, I started looking... last Monday I accepted a new job as a Business Analyst back in the IT industry.  I suddenly ended up having some time off and a husband who can work from anywhere so we made a last minute trip to Wisconsin for a long weekend.
Fishing is more fun
than weigh-ins!
The time up there was AMAZING.  We did a very little bit of biking and some fishing.  I did a very cold/wet 7 mile long run where I felt strong and healthy.  I knew that I wasn't tracking or measuring most things so I didn't have great hopes for this weigh-in.  It should come as no surprise then that the scale registered a 4.2 pound gain.  Whatever.  It happened and I am going to move on.

I have to move on because this new job is coming at me very quickly with a start date on Monday.  In Madison.  Wisconsin.  So, there will be quite a bit of adjusting to everything.  I'm both excited and nervous.  

Long before I knew I was going to be making a change in jobs I also planned that I'd on 10/1 I'd start to follow The Auto Immune Paleo Program.  This is related to the fact that my Crohn's disease has been more active lately and I am going to try to figure out if making dietary changes has any effect on my symptoms.  I don't have any illusions of following this perfectly because I know that some meals are going to be out of my control due to circumstances but I am going to do the best I can.  So... stay tuned!
