A slippery slope

Tuesday, March 06, 2007

I've got my career going well. I'm still learning a lot at my new job. The tough part for me though is balancing my home schedule with my work schedule. I need to put exercise back on my radar and start eating right again. I don't have a lunch hour where I work so I'm now taking some healthy quick snacks. I was coming home just starving and then I would eat anything that wasn't nailed down. So it's back to the plan for me....

    Good for you! Balancing work and home is tricky -- and making time for exercise! It's hard! Focus on eating right (good idea on taking snacks with you to work so you don't eat everything in site when you get home).

Lots of changes....

Wow! Since I've joined this site, I have challenged myself so much. Not only in a healthy weight but in a healthy lifestyle, with my spiritual side, and financially. I have not only started working again. I proved to myself I'm never to old to learn and challenged myself to go places that I thought were done and over with. I want to embrace life with no regrets. I want to live in the moment.


Making the time

Monday, February 12, 2007

I've got to start setting priorities on my exercise and doing my financial planning. The days are going by so fast. I'm working on my balance of it all.

Wow! I've been blessed with this site. It's really helped me push myself. I've been out of my comfort zone many times! I've met a ton of my goals and am looking forward to setting new ones. I got a part time job, went back to school, passed my state exam, and now got a full time job that I will start tomorrow that doesn't need the license but it's good to have anyways. I saw my weight loss doctor and he is thrilled with my progress. Now, I'm putting my health first. I feel great and have tons of energy. This next challenge is going to be to get my finances in order and to prepare for retirement down the road. I'm also learning balance and how precious my relationships are and to treasure them. I feel like somebody pinch me! Is this for real?


Stressed out!

I'm trying not to let it get to me and just to have fairth. I found out Friday that my current boss is going to let me go because I went to a job interview that I would get paid 3x as much as I am currently. I told them not to call unless I'm a serious candidate. They called and my boss is very upset. I'm still doing a great job for her. I studied until 4 a.m. in the morning and went to Sac for a 2 week course with a husband and bored teenager in tow. I came home and studied and passed 22 more online exams and then 10 days later went back too Sac and passed the State exam. The next day I'm back at work making tons of calls and setting up appts and then I get this news that when my boss gets back she is going to let me go. I haven't even gotten a job offer from the other place. She would rather pay for training another person instead of using me while I'm here. I'm only getting paid minimum wage! I was thinking about staying. I haven't even gotten reimbursed for my trips down there which she said she would do because she can't afford to pay me. Our last staff meeting was talking about laying people off. I was the last one hired. And she is upset for me looking for a job elsewhere. Ugghhhh. Maybe this is just a sign to let go. I have been eating peanut M&M's like crazy. I'm going to start back up at Jazzercise today. The exercise will help with the stress.
