I just want to thank everyone for the kind words and positive thoughts when I didn't get the job I was trying for. Would love to thank you all individually but my silly computer is so slow, but THANK YOU!! It means a lot!
Have a happy and healthy night!

Well I didn't get the job so for now I will still be a 3rd shifter. The person that signed out of the job last week signed it back and since they have more seniority they get to go back. I guess it just wasn't meant to be. I will just have to keep watching the posting and maybe one day soon, I hope, I will be working days.

    This happened to me (not getting the job I wanted), but it worked out for the better - as I look back on the situation. I believe things happen for a reason, even if we don't know it at the time.

Hang in there and good luck! Your time is coming :)

I didn't!

When I got off work this morning I was butt dragging tired. As I walked to my car I thought about how easy it would be to just go home, but I didn't. I got to the stop light and thought how easy it would be to keep going straight ahead instead of turning left, but I didn't. When I pulled into the parking lot of the fitness center I thought about how easy it would be to just punch in my info and just go home, but I didn't. I may not have done the greatest workout, no weights today, simply just to tired, but I did do over an hour on the treadmill, so I think that I did it, didn't give in to that little voice telling me to just go home!!
Still don't know if I got the day shift job but should find out at 10:00p.m. Still keeping my fingers crossed!

Well I did it, I signed a job posting at work, for a day shift job. I don't know if I will get it but if I do it will be a HUGE change for me if I do. Will find out Thursday morning. I have been on 3rd shift for almost the entire 15 years that I have worked for this company, and have been doing the job I am currently doing for almost 7 years. I am worried about being able to do the new job since it involves working with chemicals, now I do a lot of fork lift driving and computer work.
Husband has been working on the road for the last 3 weeks so I thought it would be much easier to eat healthier without him here, boy I was wrong. It seems like such a hassle to actually cook for just me so I have been just grabbing whatever is handy. That has to change! The scale, the poor poor scale has been getting a bit of a workout with the increased weight, that poor scale!!
Took the dog for a walk tonight and I think I about killed him. He has been panting and slopping water around since we got back....over an hour ago! If he wouldn't think he has to pull like a mule on the leash he might fair better when we walk! Also picked a ton of tomatoes from the garden, hello fresh and canned salsa! Did about an hour of weed eating, arms feel like jello, but does that count as an activity to help reach my goal towards workout minutes?
Think the Daughter and Granddaughter are going to stop in for a few minutes before I leave for work...WOOHOO, I just love being a Grandma!! The baby had a bad day yesterday, she had 6 seizures, one a pretty severe one. She had been doing really well, had gone almost 5 weeks without one, hopefully it was because she is growing and her meds just need to be adjusted.
Well I hope you all have a great evening!

Wow is it hot!

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

Just a quick update. I haven't been able to spend much time here lately since they took internet access away from us at work and my home computer is soooooo slow. I have been exercising pretty often and drinking my water. The weight is still at a stand still but I'm not giving up! Went to to gym today but didn't stay very long since I really wasn't feeling very well. I think the heat got to me, it was soooo very hot at work last night. They are supposed to be putting in a fan in my work area but so far they haven't had time.
I hope everyone is keeping cool and having a great summer!
