I confronted my boss this morning

Thursday, December 17, 2009

So I didn't mention that the person who isn't fulfilling her bargain got all new state of the art equipment.

I didn't mention that this person lies and is on facebook all day.

But I did have lists of issues and concrete examples of accounts, faxes, etc.

Including email tasks the boss personallly sent to her and were not done!

She told me she knew it was a problem but didn't know it was this out of hand or bad.

I don't know if I got it all out, but I think our discussion has lessened some of the stress on my part. Just the releasing of some held issues.

I might have to fight to the New Year's begin but I will find a way even through crap to make things change.

"Say what you like
Do what you feel
You know exactly who you are
The time is right now
You got to decide
Stand in the back or be the star"

  I am so proud of you for doing so in such a matter of fact, non-vindictive manner. You could have really thrown her under the bus but you mentioned enough, with proof, to hopefully get results without seeming like a jealous complaining co-worker.

It took chutzpah, and I'm glad you did it. Here's to not being a doormat!

    Good for you - that is one of the hardest things to do. I hope that it will lead to change for you.

    I wish you luck on your strategy. Every time I speak my mind I usually get it pushed back in my face.

Happy Holidays

and may your problems be little ones.

Enablex - Spark People Sponsor Thoughts

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

You know everyday I see the add for Enablex. And being prone to overeating and being an enabler and enabling. I always chuckle thinking that this drug is for enablers. And I looked at the tagline today - Life, Less Interrupted.

I know it is about going to the bathroom and bladder problems. But I can never get it out of my head that it is for enablers and where else can you find the enabled and enablers.

    I'm so sick of that ad, wonder how much they paid to have it running for the last two weeks?

Great Solus background!

    Never thought of it that way. It does sound bad, doesn't it?

Going to Forge a New Way.

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

I have been realizing lately. As the years go by, I write less and less and I become less and less creative. I feel so repressed and closed off in a way.

The kabbalah lesson for this week is to focus on doing the work and not worrying about the destination. I keep telling myself this all day. Don't worry just keep your head down and work. Stop thinking ahead and analyzing and figuring out and planning. Just do the work. I don't have the power to know or control everything my life will be. I want more magic, light and creative experiences in my life.

I changed my profile. Although I loved the old background and I felt like it was me, an iceberg with 90% of the depth under the surface, I feel like that is perpetuating a bad thing for me right now.

I have changed it to the faery card I love, Solus. If I had to choose a soulmate, it would be him, or what I see in him (EXCEPT HE WOULD HAVE A BODY!!!) emoticon

I put myself back to the Fast Break Stage and I am going to try to do this right.
I have so many sparkfriends who have achieved so much and are such beautiful people, I want to be able to be supportive and loving and successful too!

Thank you for all your support!!!


P.S. I love So You Think You Can Dance.
It makes me feel so powerful and creative. I want to dance like that.
After I clear some goals up... Totally doing dance classes again!

    I love your Kabbalah lesson. It really is all about trusting the process...... doing the work and allowing. I so often sabotage my efforts because of the negative energy of my over-analysis when in truth so many positive things are happening.

You are doing great!

  I love it! And I love the new background... so full of opportunity and freedom! I am the planning master. I plan and plan and plot and then don't move. It all changes now! We can do this!

I just want to disappear

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

So today, I am going to spend my day trying to incorporate every piece of product and licensing information I can and put it into a spreadsheet.

There is so much information on each thing, I don't know what to log and what not too. I can't believe a company who is in business for 19 years never put a software logging/license key information in place.

And I wanted this time to be my catchup and get my own 40 tasks done to make sure I can start the new year at my most capable and efficient and all kinds of fires are breaking lose but I have no time to get to my own 40 tasks.

At least I only have to at this moment, today, log 2007-now. But we have so much licensing for ourselves and every client we have.

I can't believe the manager didn't do anything and now puts it on me.

I just don't want to do any of it anymore.

I don't know how I am going to make it through this.

I am going to either flip out or end this year 10 pds fatter I just don't know

oh and my co-worker would complains and whines all day about being busy is on facebook all day and as we speak. How can you whine about it if you spend at least 6 hrs a day on facebook. And I can't even take a lunch.

    I have a stressful job where my coworker does nothing too. I know how you feel. I keep sugar free mints by my desk now so when I'm really stressing and wanting to eat I get a mint instead. Sometimes the crunching (I just eat them whem I'm fustrated) makes me feel better in itself. Keep your head up, you can make it!

    This is all the more reason to hit the gym and work off that stress! You'll be on the other side of this work soon; where do you want your head at?

Good luck!

    Man, that makes my day sound like a walk in the park!

Seriously, try not to let it mess with your head or your Sparking too much if you can. That said, if you do need to clow off steam in a constructive way then do it on here!

We love you! Stay strong! Managers are poo!

Rethinking Exercise

Monday, December 14, 2009

OOooo... Realistic Exercise Goals:

So it looks like I need at least 250 mins of cardio a week to have significant weight loss. Some people suggest 2 hours a day..

  Member Comments About This Blog Post:

XENAMY 12/14/2009 7:30PM

  Yes, if you think about it... 1lb = 3500 calories = 7 hours relatively intense cardio... (Assuming 500 calories/hr).

I went through this about a few weeks. Then I realized that you also lose muscle mass as you lose weight, which reduces your BMR, which means you have to work harder to lose more as time progresses. I then decided to place a lot more focus on strength training... maybe 3 hours a week on cardio - monitor results after a month and then tweak based on results.

I have to make it to the gym. I'm actually thinking about going at midnight tonight.

    That may be why I'm stuck right now. I need to up the amount of cardio.
