The countdown to complete happiness begins

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

Back after 2 days. Monday, I was too busy reading and rereading my list of requirements for my interview to post an entry. So let's start there. Monday was a rest day. Just a quick yoga video.

Tuesday? I was up at 5:30, printed off a last requirement my fiance emailed, out the door by 6. Arrived for my interview at 6:30, went in and waited 45 min for my number to be called. Got my fingerprints taken, waited another 45 min for a lady to take the required documents and ask some questions. Sat back down for another hour or so for my last interview which lasted all of two minutes. Result? I PASSED. Awesomely and amazingly. Flying colors and such.

Had to wait another hour for releasing, only to be told that the releasing officers took a strict lunch break at 12. "Please come back at 1." Did that, waited another half hour, got told that I was done and I was free to go home.

I'm so flipping relieved. Got home, told my fiance the good news (after first pretending I had bad news. I swear if he could have reached through the screen and strangled me, he would have as soon as I started laughing), then had training for a new job I was hired for a while back but finally got back in touch now that they've properly begun operations (which I can thankfully bring with me when I move), did my first day of 30DS Level 3, then got contacted by one of my students asking if we could have a quick class on Skype. Had to rush a shower and shovel down dinner, get on the computer for a class that lasted 2 hours. Ended just in time to tell my sisters the good news, then talked to my fiance for a bit before he left for work. After that, I promptly fell asleep.

I was pretty awful about food yesterday. Skipped breakfast completely because my stomach wouldn't take anything. After I got my result, I was suddenly famished. Had a vegetable burrito, a tiny steak taco and maybe 5 fries off my mom's plate. Had a quick sandwich for dinner. Also lacked water. Blah. Didn't get to do my yoga video or cardio because my system just wouldn't take it. Decided to take a day since I was physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted.

Didn't sleep very well last night. I thought I'd sleep like a log considering all the anxiety was gone. Woke up to my neighbor's tree being cut down this morning. Ax and chainsaw noises at 7am. Ate a heavy breakfast, went out for chores galore. Ate lunch out and kinda went overboard so had to compensate with a pretty light dinner after doing my 30DS workout. I did manage a 30 min bike ride and doubled up on yoga since they were both pretty tame videos.

I'm going to meet my uncle tomorrow who makes dresses to have something made for the wedding. It'll be simple since it'll be a very intimate gathering. I'm really looking forward to it. I wish I had a bit more time to trim down, but I figure I'll have another fitting before I leave anyway so maybe (hopefully) I can drop a bit more weight in the next 4 weeks.

I get married exactly a month from today. I'm excited all the stress has eased because the interview is over. All I need to figure out is flights and rooms for my mom and dad and sisters. I have an exit seminar to attend at some point before I leave. I'll be getting new students with this new job soon. I have a few baking orders I need to take care of by Monday and another bigger batch on the 17th and another around the 20th.

What am I saying? I'm still stressed out! Lol. And I have to fit working out into all of that and watch what I'm eating. But that's okay. I have a wonderful man who stands beside me through everything. Encouraging me when I'm unsure, catching me when I fall and lifting me even higher when I'm doing great.

And as stressful as everything is, I know deep in my heart that it will all come together just as it should.

    Well of course things work out. Maybe not the way WE picture it or want it, but they work out.

    Possibility of stress is a constant. Putting your needs first and foremost helps the stress. Putting your needs last adds to the stress.

    Wow! I feel exhausted just reading your blog! Bless your heart!

    I know the feeling of stress... I've been there A LOT. I always fight stress. My hubby has really helped me to calm down though because he's very patient and easy going. He's not a huge planner/organizer like me, so we balance each other well.

    Great job on the interview and getting things ready and all that good stuff and even finding time to work out! Amazing!

    Hope you have a lovely holiday!!!!
