Updates - Happy and frustrated with myself

Friday, February 01, 2013

Well I am a little...


However, on a positive note (lots of positives really), I had a good chat with 2 of the guys that I work with yesterday afternoon. It helped me to get more interested in my job and the how I will be able to contribute.

At the same time, I have a company reaching out to me about a Project Management position. I get set in my mind that I need to stay at the position I am in and then I take an interview and...

This is where the CRABBY comes in. I am ...

and DISAPPOINTED that I did not do better on the short get to know you interview. I felt off and not as prepared as I should have been. I am used to ...

flying by the seat of my pants. I need to stop doing that.

I guess the thing is that IF I JUST DID WHAT I WAS SUPPOSED TO DO... but I historically don't necessarily. I am now to a certain extent, or trying to, but it does take energy. Yes, I am whining now. That is not a good thing.

emoticon Yes - I know that I need to take advantage of the course work for the PMP certification. I need to stay positive. I will get there.

emoticon But I also need to take advantage of other things the Job Coach person does. I should have an elevator statement describing myself and perhaps I should take advantage of interview coaching. YES - these are the right things to do. They simply take energy, time and motivation.

emoticon I feel good about the resume work I did.

One thing at a time I suppose, but I need to ...

get moving.

It just feels like a lot sometimes. Back to the JOB Interview.
It is Project Management and the company would pay better, pay benefits and so on too. There are 5 other Project Managers with the company so we would leverage each other and such. It sounded really great. I do not need to know the software just Project Management.

I am thinking of things now I should have brought up on the interview. The guy has interviewed 10 people so far and has more and will pick 5 to meet in person. I guess the key is to prepare whether I get the opportunity or not. At some point I will move on and need better interview skills. I am not certain what to even wish for. Well, I would wish for it. it sounds GREAT but I am not sure I am quite ready for it. Again...

I need to...

not worry about it. It is out of my control at this point. I should hear something within the next week.

On a VERY positive note...

I am FINALLY doing what I am supposed to do with regards to logging what I eat and also with fitness. I am not just walking or jogging I am mixing it up a bit and also doing some ...
emoticon push ups (on my knees)
emoticon ab work (a bit)
emoticon and sill walking the pups, but much less.

As I mentioned, I think, well according to the scale, I am actually losing after not FOREVER. This is HUGE! Can I keep this up. I don't feel like I am eating much. I may want more. I am eating more protein. It looks like it works for me to take in most of my calories earlier in the day. I am hungry in the morning and right before lunch. I am not too hungry for dinner so it is very light.

Well, gotta run. Not sure what the weekend will bring. I would love to get some course work done. At least 2 this weekend. Not sure if I should be helping my man on the acreage though. I will have down time too. Went to the grocery at 7:30 this morning so that would not be hanging over me. Forgot about laundry though. Oh & I forgot to update you on the dental apt. Later....

    Oh boy! What a lot to think about! I feel for you! Interviewing gets me all spun out...and you have done so much of it lately! I feel that it is almost better not to be too polished and rehearsed on interviews (beyond letting them see you know your stuff) because then they get a better look at who you actually are. If they want who you actually are versus an "interview version" then I think it is more likely to be the right fit. I don't know if this makes sense to you but it is what I believe. You are really good at what you do and a very awesome person all want to work for someone who can see that easily.

Lady...I see great things in your future! I do,

Nice job on your weight loss! You are an inspiration to me! emoticon

    Sometimes it's better just to fly by the seat of your pants in interviews. Love the picture! I'm sure they liked you and if your felt a disconnect, maybe the interviewer was just distracted or new at his/ her job. Who knows? You can't blame yourself for these things. I'm sure you did great. Good job with the logging and working out! Have a great weekend!

    I've been wondering about your dental appointment all day. Hope it went well.

You've got the right just get that tushy moving with all the job interview stuff. I figure if it is meant to be for you to interview for this other possibility, you will get called back. If not, lesson learned about improving the job interviewing skills.

I am TERRIFIED of job interviews. It is a darn good thing I have a secure job.

Hope you get to enjoy your weekend and find a balance between getting course work done and having fun with the pups and your man.
