Today has been dedicated to paperwork, drug tests and fingerprinting. Can you tell I’m getting ready to begin a new job?
Ryan and I headed to the gym nice and early for our usual Monday morning workout. I followed the planned Best Body Boot Camp workout and loved it. Best Body Boot Camp workouts change every two weeks, so this was a repeat week and I repeated last week’s workout, but increased the number of reps for some of the exercises.
The killer move of the day? Surrender squats! (You can see Jillian Michaels demo this exercise in this video at 1:27.)
They are intense. My shoulders were burning by the end and I was more than ready to move onto the next exercise once I completed my final rep. They’re tough!
Breakfast this morning came in sandwich form. I made an egg sandwich with jelly and cheese and it hit the spot.
After typing up my morning blog post, I got ready for the day and headed out to take care of some new-hire must dos for my new job.
My first stop was a visit to the police department.
I had to get fingerprinted as part of a background screening and was surprised that the whole process was computerized. I guess I should have assumed that it would be, but I was prepared to get inky! The woman who took my fingerprints said that they still use ink from time-to-time, but typically stick to computerized fingerprinting now.
With my fingerprints in hand, I headed back out to my car and drove about 30 minutes to Quest Diagnostics for a drug test. Always a fun experience! I waited for about an hour before it was my turn.
I then took all of my paperwork to the gym where I will be working and my new boss joked, “Do you feel like you’re going to work for the FBI?” There was a lot of paperwork and background check formalities, that’s for sure!
Last night, after dinner, I prepared a big pot of chili so Ryan and I could have a good meal to reheat for dinner tonight after our small group meeting. When I arrived home, all I wanted for lunch was that chili, so I guess I’ll be having the same thing for lunch and dinner today!
Hope you’re having a great Monday!
