Well things are moving quickly in my world.

I passed the written exam that i wrote (quite disappointed with an 84%) but still passed.

The city passed their budget approval the hiring of 20 firefighters on Thursday night.  I received an email friday night asking me to call to set up and interview.  I called this morning and arranged to have an interview tomorrow morning at 9 am.  I am very very nervous, i think that this is my chance to make a change.

My wife and I have made changes that will hopefully allow us to function on a reduced income.  We have renegotiated the mortgage (cutting payments by almost half) and traded in the mini van for a smaller more economical vehicle that has lower payments, cheaper insurance and gets almost double the mileage on the same amount of gas.

I started the TNT diet last week and I have lost almost 4 lbs.  I found myself having a really hard time this weekend and I had strong cravings for sugar and carbs.  I am not sure if it is because of how stressed I am or if it is my body telling me something else.

This morning I made it to the gym, did a full body workout and then went into a yoga class.  I really enjoyed the yoga and feel very relaxed and energetic.

I am going to post my progress pics this week for everyone to see.

    Wow – a life in transition – fantastic. It takes a solid couple of weeks to really adapt to the Low Carb life style. Make sure that you are eating sufficient dietary fats – since that is where your energy is going to come from once you have depleted your glycogen stores. Low Fat + Low Car = No Energy.

    Good Luck
