Default New Job!!!

Okay, so after 7 months of being unemployed I have found myself a job! A contract, but with the City of Sault Ste Marie! I am very excited! However, I don't know if it is going to be easier or harder to stay on plan now.... hmmmmm

Congratulations Dawn!

I actually find I stay on plan better when I'm working because I tend to plan out my meals more than on the weekends. If you have a fridge or access to a fridge at your new job that will be helpful. All you have to avoid is possible "goodies" that your future coworkers may have around.

Congratulations and I will ditto as well. As long as this is something you really really want then make sure you plan your meals and stick to your plan.

Thanks everybody! I thought I would go get my fair coloured before I start my new job .. what a bad idea! They made my hair turn greeny-grey .. and they were telling no no it looks fine!!!!!! I wanted to cry! I would not leave til they fixed it .. it looks alot better now .. but not what it should look like .. my normal hairdresser was not there and I needed it done today cause I am going out of town tomorrow .. and wouldn't have time before Tuesday ... needless to say, my scalp is on fire and my hair is completely dried out! I am not a happy camper today ...

Dawn, try a deep conditioner! You can either buy one or you can wash your hair, put on a regular conditiioner then put a plastic bag/cap over your head and let it sit for 15-20 minutes.
