I saw one of my beloved Aunty Acid posts on FB:
"Never use scales Ladies.... because scales don't measure sexy"
Wishing all of us a feeling sexy kind a weekend.....

Yesterday was one of those days. I felt like the greatest Idiot on the golf course. I took many air shots and topped many of the balls. Did I mention "head up"????? Need some weight around my head to keep it down....
I was even asked my Caddy whether I am too stupid for this game. I just felt like I forgot everything I ever learned.
But luckily I did count my points. I am not handicapped yet (golfer's will understand this), but I counted assuming I am playing of a handicap of 36. And in the end here it was:
I actually had scored 9 points! For me, who is still an infant where it comes to golf, this is a good score! I know this is far from any score professionals and those guys who have played for years will score, but for me it was a personal best!
Looking back I am glad I counted, otherwise I would have gone home simply frustrated. But the score made me look at all my shots not just the bad ones. Here is what I found:
1. I had one-patted on one hole on quite a distance - a pat to be proud of
2. 80% of my Tee shots were very good
3. When I hit the ball well on the fairway it did go straight & distance was also ok, for someone my level
4. I did have fun
5. The other Lady I played with, has been playing for 3 years and has much more time to practice than me, she hits the ball further than me on the fairway, but our Tee shots are similar and she also did lots of blunders
Don't focus on the negatives, focus on the positive factors.
Now if I could just learn to do that in regards to my weight loss, instead of beating myself over the head for gaining weight...
Hey I might not have lost weight, but against all odds (health problems, not conducive to weight loss) I have maintained since July!

The anniversary has come & gone. I think it was good I was not in Kenya last weekend, since I think I would have watched too many things on TV about it.
Overall I am very happy that I have recovered well from the trauma. When I watch the things they are showing on FB & TV I am sad about the attack, the many severely injured & traumatized people but it doesn't hurt me any more. I feel now panic.
It is a sad day in the history of Kenya, but it also pulled people together. It was one of the few times it didn't matter which color or tribe you are, all were affected equal, but also all stood together to help. Maybe it has helped pull people together in this country.

After overworking myself for 6 months on the new job and feeling at times like I am on the wrong boat here yet accomplishing a LOT suddenly it has become so much easier.
Well Monday I lost my temper with the procurement guy and went home feeling like I am the biggest twit ever who just does not know how to do things. I send my immediate boss an email telling him I am resigning, since I honestly felt I am the wrong person.
Well the next day I did not go to work obviously, but my immediate boss (the GM) called me. That's when it became interesting:
1. He pleaded with me to come back
2. He told me he and one of the Directors had sat down and looked at my JD and realized I was really not supposed to do all the things I was being told to do
3. I was not report to the GM, but actually to the Directors and be at the same level as the GM.
So they have decided that with immediate effect I do not have to manage projects directly any more, but should do the work I was employed for: define & develop systems, templates & procedures & implement them.
They did apologize for the misinterpretation of my JD in the past and told me how they value my work.
Wow I am stunned.
Of course it was dampened by the talk they had to give me about shouting to a Junior staff member. But I know that was wrong anyway and felt bad enough as it is.
So suddenly I have time at my hand and freedom to do what i enjoy doing more anyway. Amazing!
Oh and another good news:
Due to hormonal imbalance I had gained a lot of weight, topping off at 202 at my worst a few weeks ago. But now, even though i have not started any treatment yet, I am back down to 197.5pounds. Wow that is almost 5 pounds!
Not good enough, but a starting point.
