Great update!!

Friday, December 14, 2012

Wow! Can't believe how long it has been since I last blogged! Oh my goodness! A quick update. Since my last blog I took up a seasonal job on the TN/KY state line about 10 miles north of me. I was there only 2 months and just quit this week for reasons I wish not to share. But during that time I worked 10 hours a day 4-5 days a week. 9 of those hours was nothing but constant walking back and forth. Because of that, I've lost 10 lbs and about another 2 lbs since I quit. I've been drinking a natural meal replacement shake that I mix up that I get through my new business that I started back in October. So I now I'm an independent business owner with 2 companies and it's a ton of fun. At least my fiance is still working where I was working so there's still some income to help me when my businesses are going slow some days. I'm very happy to report that I am happier than ever once again after falling into a severe stress and then depression state a week or so ago. My new independent business has taught me for both personal and business... the keys to success are attitude and action and I added in lots of smiles. The power of a smile can go a long way. I found it not only attracts people to you, but it can impact someone else's life for the better. I hope that everyone on SP has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year if I don't post anything before then!! God Bless!

    emoticon emoticon on finding your niche - yes a 'smile' is very encouraging and up-lifting also, a positive attitude - even when things are not going the way we would like attracts like minded people. Keep it up. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You are SO right - the keys to success ARE attitude and action! Good for you that you're putting BOTH to good use!

Great updates!

Sunday, August 19, 2012

I am just so full of excitement and enthusiasm today!!! Just been so busy the past few weeks I'm just now getting around to a blog. Mary Kay is still going great for me. Still the best job I've ever had. I'm trying to earn enough to get this awsome camera I've been wanting for several months now. My fiddling is getting better. My shorts have gotten loose on me.. I'd say roughly about half a size. Super excited about that. I got my first ever pedicure today.. Love it! I posted a pic of it on my FB page www.facebook.com/karencenci I've also been the stationary bike while doing my addicting word search (which has given me the great results very quickly) for 30+ minutes a day. I try to race against the time to see if I can get a whole page done and find all the words within 30 minutes.. record so far is 21 minutes. That's all that's happened lately. Have a great week my awsome spark friends!! emoticon emoticon

    I have been writing down my accomplishments on my page so I can look back and reflect as well as the pictures so I can remind myself why I'm where I am today and why I can't stop until I've gotten to where I need to go and have stuck there for a while. It makes it easier to know what I need to continue to do if I can see where I've been.

progress to perfection

Sunday, July 15, 2012

Didn't do good at all tonight in the league.. mainly because I hurt my wrist pretty good causing an old work injury to flare up. Wednesday I'm going to be taking free lessons from a real pro who is a new general manager at the 2 bowling allies. I'm going to finally learn how to throw my first every hook with my plain plastic balls and maybe upgrade to a ball made specifically for hooking. I've nailed a new fiddle tune down and very soon I will be doing a video of myself with my webcam playing. I've also got already a strong Mary Kay business going so I won't have to go back to a regular job ever again! emoticon on I shall!

    Terrific about the mastering the new fiddle tune. I look forward to viewing your video. Hope the pro also helps has some useful tips to avoid injury as well as hooking the ball. The only time I use a straight ball is for shooting at the dadburn 10 pin when it doesn't fall down with the others! emoticon emoticon

    That's awesome that you're going to get free lessons! I've been attempting to hook my ball as well. It's not really going too well, but it did hook a little.
I'd like to see the video of you playing!

Broke a bowling record

Friday, July 06, 2012

Tonight I bowled a total of 356!!! New record!! YAY!! I had to pre-bowl tonight because we have to unexpectedly go out of town because my fiance's uncle who had both of his lungs transplanted is dying after 2 years of nothing but illness from the transplants. I will be gone from anywhere between 2-5 days. Please keep him in your prayers and us too that we have a safe trip out of state.
