Busy! Busy! Busy!

Posted by Susan on September 10, 2009

What a day ! It was busy both at work and after work . I started my house sitting gig today. I am one of those regimented  people , who likes routine and gets completely thrown off when my routine is interrupted. Getting myself acclimated to a new routine stresses me out  at first. I am feeling the a little crazed and off balance right now, but it will pass in a few days . The only good thing about my current state of mind is that eating is for some reason the last thing I am thinking about ! I had to force myself to eat dinner tonight because I just wanted to get myself together for tomorrow and go to bed !

The good news is, I got paid today for this job and I am excited about the possibilities extra money holds ! When I fit into a size 8 I went through all my clothes ( size 12-16 filled my closet and drawers) and got rid of close to everything ! My winter wardrobe is pretty much nil.  My plan for this money is clothes ! I am planning a big shopping trip in the very near future. Stay tuned !!!!!!!!!


Here are some pics of my home away from home for the next 3 weeks.


The yard is amazing ….this picture doesn’t do it justice.


Here are my charges ………………………………….







They are really cute and really good dogs. It is a simple job really. I’ve been doing it for 15 years ! I’ve seen many many member of this pet family come and go.  Quite a few cats to. But the last of the cat’s have passed on and were never replaced…… at least not yet ! This is a family of animal lovers, so you never know !

Here is a quick pass through my food for the day :









Level 1 / Day 9  : Complete ! Plus 20 min. HIIT on the treadmill

I can’t believe I am one day away from the start of Level 2. My first 10 days picture and measurements may be psted a little late ….but never fear , they will come as soon as I can get to it !!!!

OK , I am off to bed. I have an early morning tomorrow . I won’t say how early, because you guys will never believe me anyway ! I hope all of my fellow shredders are shredding it up and feel accomplished ! Till tomorrow ….

    Susan, I can’t wait for tomorrow and to post my blog for the day! So exciting, can’t wait to start level 2!!!

    Your side job sounds like fun and once you find a routine I’m sure you will do great!

    And extra shopping money, that’s always a bonus!

    I used to house sit for a guy once a year and I loved it!!

    Your deserts always look so yummy and make me want some, lol.

    I’m so excited to see your 10 day results, as I have the shred video, but have only done it 2 times lol!

  3. Congrats on the Shred! Sounds like you are doing great. 🙂

    Love all the plants & flowers at the house. What a nice view to enjoy while you are there.

    Enjoy your shopping – you deserve it after all the hard work you’ve invested into yourself.

    Best wishes,

    Your food looks so good, I think I spy Reese’s Chocolate and Peanut Butter cereal…. love those! I usually don’t eat them because even when I double the serving it’s not enough to fill me up… putting a smaller amount on top of hot cereal??? That is a stroke of BRILLIANCE! I love finding new food ideas on blogs.
