MY NEW JOB UPDATE

Saturday, May 01, 2010

Well, I have actually been at my job for 1 month already. Yesterday, my trainer presented me with a list of the job functions I have been performing and a very constructive critique of my performance.

Boy, I didn't realize just how much I have actually learned or how much I have been doing until I read this paper. I brought it home so my husband could read it. He, too, was amazed at just how much I really do there. He said to me, "Wow, I didn't realize just how much you do there. You really earn your salary, don't you?"

I laughed & said, "Yeah, I sure do! And I haven't even learned everything yet. I don't know how to input the credit cards online yet, or do the accounts payable stuff, or even all the functions of accounts receivable!"

I love the job, though. It is hard on some days, but with my trainer's patience...I know I can do it all eventually.

I am happy to report that everyone likes me there, too.

RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOUR BACK HURTS

Sunday, April 25, 2010

How many of you raised your hands?

If, like me, you tend to carry everything plus the kitchen sink in your purse - you probably did. I have found out by experience that if you tend to wear your purse strap over your head and across your body so that your hands are free...you will likely have pain in the small of your back, especially when walking longer distances.

I decided to switch to a purse that I can hold in my hand while walking since I walk to work every morning about 3 or so miles. Ever since I did that, the pain in the small of my back has disappeared!! emoticon

Try it - it will work for you, too. emoticon

  emoticonI agree with you .Carrying your purse in your hand is better for your back. You can switch from hand to hand to even out load. I have also carried purses slung on my shoulder and over the head and across the body. I always had pain between my shoulder blades. Not anymore.

    I did the same thing I once had 10.00 dollars worth of change on the bottom of my purse.

    I've always had back pain for various reasons. Long ago in a galaxy not so far away one of those reasons was large purses. I once weighed my purse at 27#. That included pliers and a wrench. I have since downsized to a sensible size and no longer carry the pliers and wrenches.

Are You Getting Enough Potassium?

Monday, April 12, 2010

Potassium is an important mineral whose importance is often overlooked. However, it plays a huge role in optimal functioning of both the heart and the nervous system. Potassium also plays a role in maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance in body cells. The average person should consume an estimated 2,000 milligrams of potassium per day. Excellent sources of potassium include: raisins, prunes, bananas, strawberries, watermelon, cantaloupe, oranges, beans, peas, turkey and fish.

Get The Flavor of a Flavonoid

Sunday, April 11, 2010

Have you had your flavonoids today? Be honest, have you even heard of flavonoid? Most people don't know the first thing about these flavonoids known for their antioxidant properties. While flavonoids are responsible for adding pigmentation to flowers and protecting plants from insects and other microbes, they've developed a reputation for preventing cancer and cardiovascular disease. Good sources of flavonoids include onions, chocolate, red wine, green tea, berries, citrus fruits and beans.

    The chocolate got my attention. I love all these foods and I know I don't eat enough of them. Now with this information, I will try to find ways to add them to my daily food intake.

    I do get lots of flavonoids as I drink green tea all the time and use beans and onions lots.
Have a great day. PJ
