It looks like my wish is coming true
Friday, June 08, 2012
I'm most likely going to be a stay at home mom again. We just got back from Portland, Oregon. Josh's transfer up there is FINAL!! Which means we will be out there on the 27th to stay. Downside to that is that I can't transfer with the post office. I've put in for a leave of absence which means if they have a position come up there I can take it, but for right now they only have carrier positions and I'm not leaving my kids at home alone during the day.
So Josh and I have been talking about it. With my group challenges I will be making 400-600 a month with beachbody. I'm pretty sure on that one because my last months commissions were 270 without challenges. Then I'm also selling my chainmaille which is bringing in 10$ a bracelet. All I really need to bring in is 800 a month so even if I got a part time job and didn't count my beachbody and bracelets, I could pretty much be a stay at home mom again. Of course I would like to bring in more than that but I'll probably pick up more when the boys are in school.
Since I've gained back 25 lbs (yah, I feel like crying about it) a change will be good. This move will get me away from the stress here, focusing more on beachbody and the challenges will mean I HAVE to stick with the programs and meal plans, and I won't feel like I have 2 minutes to breath a day.
I don't know how to express how excited I've been.
For those of you who don't know, a while back I had an issue with my partner at work. He had been my best friend there for a few years so his change in behavior really hurt. Then I had a knee and foot injury that really held me back right after getting certified as a hip hop instructor and couldn't teach a few classes that were offered to me, and then I had to file sexual harassment against a manager which resulted in my car being keyed multiple times by his friends and people that took his side making my job complete hell after he was fired and then rehired. I don't blame myself for the 25 lbs. There are things more important in life than weight... a lot of things. But I miss being a leader and a motivator not only for others, but for myself. I'm ready.
AND IF YOU'RE FROM PORTLAND- Our apartments that we will be in on the 27th have a huge fitness center and a room that I was told I could use with friends to finally teach hip hop. I would love people to practice with, people to use the equipment with, and people who are willing to do 10 minute trainer with me every now and then over the next 3 months and don't mind being in my min videos. Basically... PLEASE BE MY FRIEND!!! I know nobody out there.
