The last couple of weeks have been sort of crazy. I haven't given up my New Years Goals yet, I just haven't been able to work on some, or update others. I started new job responsibilities on 1/14/09. Same place, lateral move. This was a last minute thing, we had a girl leave and I thought I would benefit from learning a new job (can you say job security?). I am now handling Medicare instead of Blue Cross and Blue Shield for all seven of our medical offices. The girl doing this job before gave a whopping 3 day notice so I only got about 45 minutes training before she left and had to jump in with both feet. Since I do most of my posting at work and I haven't had much time for breaks, that has drastically cut into my blogging time.

Also, that same week I started coming down with something. I'm still not sure what it was, but it really hit me hard this weekend. I finally saw the Doctor Monday morning and after 5 doses of antibiotic, I am finally feeling like myself again. So here are my updates:

1) I am down a total of 10 lbs. so far. I haven't done real well on my eating the last couple of weeks, but I am back on it now.

2)I have not been exercising the last week. Just haven't felt like it. But I did have my cholesterol checked Friday and my "good" cholesterol was up to 38!!! This is still 8 pts too low (this number should be >=46) but since I usually come in around 27 or 28, this was a really good number for me. Exercising is really the only way to get this number up so I am accomplishing something.

3)I am still just depositing in my Way2Save account at Wachovia, but that account is growing.

4)Still no firm plan on paying down the debt. I have not had time to work on that plan.

5)I am probably doing the best on this goal. I am currently about 2 weeks ahead of my schedule to read the Bible through in one year.

6)I have started a budget just for stuff to do with the kiddos. I have been spending more time with them in the evenings just being in the same room with them instead of elsewhere in the house working on this, that or the other.
