Encouraging Myself

Saturday, October 15, 2011

I realized that I didn't do my usual blog yesterday because I paid off a boat load of debt emoticon and forgot to write. I did what I had to do, and in good fashion, I am moving forward. This has been a very thought provoking week for me. I am truly getting ready to step out of my comfort zone and apply for a management position. Why stop at a team lead, just keep climbing the ladder. I can't worry about what others may think or feel, as for me and my house...I will serve the Lord, with Him, I can do all things!

So I dumped a lot of debt, got caught up on household bills, wrote my financial vision clearer and more detail. I have a picture where I want to be January 1, Habakkuk 2:2, says to write it plainly, and I am reinforcing myself to live below my means and track every dollar.

I didn't feel like going to my WW meeting, but I am in it to win it. I went later in the day, didn't have my "scale" clothes on, but I did it, picked up some more trackers and I plan to keep on moving. I will get this weight off, by hook or crook! I encouraged myself to go! To God be the Glory!

  Hi Kamcclary,

Your blog really encouraged me, as I know I need the Lord's help to lose the extra weight, and also to put healthy foods into my vessel. Praying for you and others out there who needs His help. emoticon

    Alright! Sounds like an awesome day! I sure wish I could pay off my debt. I feel like I am chipping away at a stone, very very slowly.

Hope the rest of your weekend is awesome!

Taking my A-Ha moment a step up!

Thursday, October 13, 2011

It was bought to my attention yesterday as I was thinking bigger, doing better and stepping out of my comfort zone to kick it up a notch. Not only am I getting back and hitting the books, I am thinking about applying for management position. Why not?. I already work hard for my money, I have a great work ethics and lots of skills, why not take it to another level and just go there. I need to shake things up with myself and get out of my comfort zone. May it be so Lord.

So along with preparing to go back to school, I am revamping and revising my resume and looking to see exactly what is out there, what is a good fit and how I can do it bigger, do it better! emoticon

    Yes, you should apply for management. Why not you. I know just where you are. I was there a few months ago. An opportunity for a Team Lead position was available for my department and yes I did let my Manager know I was interested. t knew it would be alot of work and would take me totally out of my comfort zone and my cube, but hey it was time to boost my career, do more, have more challenges, be responsible for more, introduce some new ideas and make more money. Good Luck. You can do.

This SP journey has a way of changing not only your health and body but also other areas on your life. emoticon

    Good for you! Confidence in one area like weight loss spreads to every part of your life. The joy of weight loss is far more than a number on a scale, and success in other areas of life aren't just because you are thinner. EARNED confidence radiates and improves everything!

Grasping my "A-Ha" Moment

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Wow, let a family member go on Oprah and you ride the wave of having your own "a-ha" moment emoticon I think I am pretty much decided on what course to study in grad school. I started making plans on getting my rear in school again. I am looking at the work I do for GM and asking the real tough questions like "how long do I want to continue doing this type of work?" My job has taken a physical toll on my body and I am dragging some days. It is my hope to maybe get an "easier" position, but in this line of work that comes few and far. I was sweating it out last night wondering if this is as good as it gets. Yes, I am truly grateful for my job, it has provided for me standard of living that I am use to for the last eleven years. As I was speaking with my other sister, I realize that I can't be a "a! slave" to the rhythm, not following my dreams, not setting goals so lofty, and not daring to soar

So my a-ha moment is to think bigger,do bigger and do better. I am starting with cleaning house, not being bothered with toxic relationships and friendships, educating my mind and doing more than possibility thinking. I can lose the weight, I can finish my degree work, I can work at a significant job and feel good about it, I can achieve greatness and I will emoticon

My Little Sister on Oprah!

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

My youngest sister Catherine was part of Oprah's Life Class premier yesterday! She was chosen to speak live on the webcast dealing with Ego and she let her light shine! My Dad and Step Mom and Snickers (family dog) drove to Chicago yesterday for the broadcast since Cat was selected by her submission to OWN. Here is the link and she was the last speaker for this webcast, about 53-54 minutes. Catherine is wearing a similar colored dress to what Oprah was wearing. She texted me later to let me know that Oprah complimented her honesty and loved her hair

My other sister overseas told her to treat it like a job interview, you never know. I am just truly grateful for all of my sisters endeavors and glad they let our family shine!

Early Up

Monday, October 10, 2011

I felt the good Lord woke me up early today, finally got on my feet at 5:00 AM, walked the dogs and took the trash out. I feel sometimes that is when God gets my attention best. I was hungry, but proud of myself that I didn't start munching, beating down my points for the day. emoticon I am tracking my food and using the recipe builder this weekend, so far it keeps me accountable and give a more accurate picture of my calorie intake.

I am getting together my transcripts in preparation of beginning school again. It has been on my mind, I have wanting to finish what I started-no matter what and I want to use my tuition reimbursement benefit. I really didn't get to talk to Moma much about grad school, I was taking my first class two years ago at this time when my Mom took a turn for the worst. I was able to squeak out a B for my first grad class! Time to go on. I know my Mom is waiting and since we have a new national contract, the heat is on to get it done! emoticon
