Temping

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

7/22/08...funny how things change in one week. I started temping last Friday and love it! It's only a three month assignment but it could lead to other things. I'm still looking for a permanent postion but at least I have something now.

I've been exercising in the morning before work which is working plus I'll hit the gym on the weekend too. Trying to work everything in is tough but I know I can do it. Planning meals is tricky too but somehow it gets done.

Thanks to everyone for their kind words of encouragement. SP members ROCK!

    Yay Joan! I temped before and was hired on full time after my 3 months with GMAC. It was a good job, but I moved on after about 5 years. Good luck, hope it works to your benefit and if not, there is an even better situation out there for you!

    This is great, Joan! To find a job you like, even if it is temporary, is terrific. Like Cruise said,maybe after the 3 months they will be able to find a way to keep you!
Congrats!

Angry

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

7/15/08...feeling very agry today at myself and my husband. Our entire financial situation is really bothering me and I can't get past it. I just want to resolve it and move on which isn't going to happen fast. I can only blame myself and him for where we're at.

The job search is going slow and that's frustrating me too. Right now my self-confidence is zero and I'm having a hard time looking towards the future because of all the uncertainty right now.

Trying to stay positive is tough to do continually day-to-day but I'm thankful for what I have at the moment and know that I have the abilities and skills to turn this around.

Here's hoping I have better things to report next week.

  HANG IN THERE. YOU ARE GOING THROUGH SOME ROUGH TIMES AND IT IS HARD TO SEE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL. THINGS WILL EVENTUALLY CHANGE AND THE LIGHT WILL BEGIN TO SHINE SO YOU CAN SEE YOU WAY OUT.

TRY NOT TO LET THIS STAND IN YOUR WAY TO CONTINUE ON THE HEALTHY LIFESTYLE JOURNEY.

WE ARE A GOOD TEAM AND PEOPLE ARE HERE FOR YOU.

TRY AND THINK POSITIVE AND KNOW THAT YOU WILL GET THROUGH THESE HARD TIMES. TRY AND FOCUS ON THE GOOD THINGS IN YOUR LIFE.

I WILL KEEP YOU IN MY PRAYERS. TAKE IT 1 DAY AT A TIME!

    You are going through a really tough time right now...but maybe if you think of SP as the one thing you can control? I am sure your self-confidence is taking a major hit after all that is going on in your life, but keep remembering you can be very proud of the way you have come back to SP and the way you are working on this area of your life. Focus on the good things that you can do with SP and try to forget the other areas for a while. I know, that is probably the hardest, forgetting the rest.
As for your financial situation...my daughter and my son-in-law are going through the same thing right now. It is not that uncommon in this day and age. I think most people are in a much worse financial postition than ever before. All it would take for me and my husband to be in a similar position would be one of us losing out jobs, then we would have to declare bankruptcy. It is a scary time we are living in.
Things will look up and work on what you can and try, try, try to let the rest go until something can be done about it.
We will be rooting for you, no matter what. You can count on that!
Hugs!

Feeling Fit

Tuesday, July 08, 2008

7/8/08...the scale keeps going up one pound every week but I'm feeling more fit and my clothes are fitting better. I'm going to kick up my fitness a bit and add more protein to my diet which should help the scale move in the downward direction.

7/1/08...I hate feeling so bloated but I know it's a temporary condition. I've been trying to hit the gym more even when I don't feel like it and that has helped. Looking forward to a short week with the holiday and all.

Job search is still going slow but I have had a few interviews...waiting to hear if I get called back for round two interviews.

Thanks for all of your support!

Keeping At It

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

6/24/08...still on the job hunt which is beginning to control my life. I had a few interviews but no job offers yet. It's frustrating but I know that I have to be patient and wait---the perfect job is out there for me. This holding pattern is only temporary and everything happens for a reason.

    The perfect job IS out there for you! Remember that you were looking for a job when you were hired for your last one. Enjoy the time off, and before you know it...you'll be back to the grind! =)
