First off, let me say how absolutely awesome this week has been. It's been a wild ride full of stress and insanity but I can genuinely say that 2011 is going out with a bang.
Let's start with Weight Watchers stuff though. I'm loving the ease of the Points Plus program. I love not feeling guilty for indulging in fruits that I love and I'm digging on the new power foods listing. It is making it easier to get an idea of where I am without having to do calorie, fat and carb math which is nice.
The one thing I have issues that with is the extreme amount of exercise I do, I just don't know how to handle the Activity Points and the Weekly Points system. I can swap activity points by the day, by the week or not at all. I can also choose not to use the weekly points at all. I just don't know what to do. For the moment I'm doing both weekly and I haven't had to touch the Weekly Points at all. I'm thinking I may just swap Activity Points weekly and not touch the Weekly Points. We'll see though.
It will be a bit weird over the next two weeks since I'm going on vacation but I will solidify the plan once the new year gets here. For now, I'm not concerned with loss - just maintenance.
As for vacation - it can't get here soon enough! I only need to work Monday and then I don't go back until Wednesday the 21st. HOORAY!
Where I work we have to take 5 consecutive vacation days once a year and this is my sabbatical. For that week, work can't call me, I can't check email, I'm actually locked out of the buildings. Last year I only had 4 days and coming back was rough... this year I'm actually taking 6! That's going to be hard to get back in to the swing of things after.
And speaking of work! Big changes on the horizon! When I get back from vacation I need to start training some of my direct team members on how to do various tasks that are currently being done by the temporary employees on our team. I'm also getting some additional tasks around our procurement application and will be getting to work with our category managers directly on tasks related to suppliers and supplier activity. That's pretty cool stuff.
Big changes are coming in 2012. I can feel it!
