Things are moving a lot faster than expected! I applied to this new position last Thursday. On Tuesday I was contacted by the recruiter, and Tuesday afternoon I got an interview request for the next day! So today I had my interview, and the hiri... Read more
The waiting game
Now that I've applied for that new position at work, it feels like I'm just... waiting. And it's barely started! I know it's going to take awhile for the whole process... they have to screen all applicants, then set up interviews, possibly 2nd i... Read more
Decision made... AHHH!!!!
Yesterday I realized I was trying to talk myself into why I should go for the new position, and I realized that as scary as it was, I believe that was the right move. So this morning before I clocked in, I applied online before I lost my nerve. ... Read more
I need to make a decision
I really need to make a decision on a potential career change, and soon. I rambled on about how I ended up in my current position in my last post, so I'm trying to focus on the pros and cons in this one. This blog is really for my own benefit, b... Read more
Scratch that week...
Last week I had a much needed break from work, and a much needed visit from my best friend. Unfortunately, I also took a bit of a "break" from my smart food choices, and had several poor choices at meals and several "treats", along with a few ad... Read more
A long short week
Here I am, back to work after a 3-day weekend that sure didn't feel like a 3-day weekend. Where did it go? I was exhausted through it all thanks to my large dog who is terrified of thunder and fireworks, of which we had lots of both all weekend.... Read more
Oh, hey... it's Thursday!
A quick update... this week has flown by! My head is just spinning, mostly from being busy at work. Here lately I feel like I'm losing my mind (or at least my short term memory). I won't remember if I did something or not, I forgot my lunch toda... Read more
A case of the Mondays
I really, really, REALLY want to start my weekend over. It was one of those weekends where I had all these plans, and now it's Monday morning and I don't know what happened to the weekend! I did do a little work on some projects around the house... Read more
Glad but sad it's Friday
It feels like this has been a very long week. I'm so happy it's Friday, but at the same time I'm a little sad. Only because I planned to do so many things this week (mainly exercise) and don't feel like I really did any of them. I'm down to 4 we... Read more
Today I am tired, and I know exactly why. My very large dog is terrified of storms, and last night after struggling to fall asleep (I think I finally nodded off around midnight), I came to at 4:00am with my dog standing in front of my face, pant... Read more
6 days later...
Wow, I can't believe it's been almost a week since I blogged! I was swamped Friday and don't get on over the weekend, so there's that. Monday our server was down at work and I was sent home at 10am, so of course I was swamped again Tuesday.... s... Read more
Well, my 1st challenge week so far as been a little rough. I'd say I'm keeping up with about 80% of my plan, and really that's not so bad. I will not beat myself up about it, I'll just focus on getting back on track and doing a little better eac... Read more
4 week challenge
Yesterday kicked off day 1 of a last minute plan to start a personal 4 week challenge! I have my plan outlined in detail, but here is the general idea:
1. Continue to stick to my eating plan - it works for me, but I need to stick with it an... Read more
I've been hit or miss at best on my eating the past couple of weeks. I haven't shown any increase in weight, but also haven't lost any either. I am down to about 5 weeks away from what I would consider the event of the summer for me... I will be... Read more
On it goes...
I missed writing yesterday, but work has been so crazy I feel like I barely have time to pee! It is so mentally draining and stressful, and I have a feeling that contributes at least in part to my mindless snacking when I get home. I've always s... Read more
