My big goal today was to take down the Christmas tree and put all the decorations away. However, I am sitting watching a movie. I can be the best procrastinator. I wish they gave out monetary awards for this, because I would so own that category.
There is about a foot and 1/2 of snow on my patio that I would need to shovel to get my Christmas boxes to put everything away. This is my biggest reason for procrastinating. I just do not want to shovel it. LOL
A lot of the people who have set New Years Resolutions remind me of this meme. I probably in the past have felt the same way, but it's a process and it doesn't happen overnight.
Especially when you ate this last night as your last "hooray" meal before you started your 8 millionth diet.
My newest adventure is Les Mills Pump. I've done Body Pump before when I used to go to the gym and I really liked it. I have just had a hard time getting back into P90x and I needed a little change and some motivation to get back into P90x full throttle. I'd do a few workouts and then fall down. So my LMP came in the mail on Thursday evening and I started it today. It is amazing how some workouts make you pukey. This one did. It wasn't long, but I almost hurled halfway through it. But it was fun. I have a little under 60 days before I'm going to Punta Cana. I've dicked around enough for the last 3 months that I really need to put the peddle to the medal. This weekend I'm juicing, trying to reset my body from all the bullshit I've been shoving down my pie hole for the last three months. No excuses, just facts. Gotta hit the market at some point this weekend to pick up some shrimp, chicken, and some salad and veggies.
Good news on the work front. Met with my boss on Thursday, he informed me that he put money in the 2013 budget to hire me, but he doesn't want to hire an administrative assistant, he feels he can get one of them again and that I have a 4 year degree for a reason, he wants me to start doing Junior Recruiting and therefore he can hire me as a recruiter. I'm super excited. Not only does this mean an entire career shift for me (I've been an Administrative Assistant/Executive Secretary for the better part of 15 years) but it also means a lot more earning potential for me. I want to hit the ground running and really show him what I can do in the next two months. My friend who got me this job told me that if I can really put up some decent numbers for just learning the business, that he'll probably hire me full on by the end of February/beginning of March. I'm hopeful, excited and just pumped for this new career.
I decided to take a challenge for myself for 2013 as well. I have a mason jar and anytime something good happens to me, I'm going to write it down and put it in the jar. As referenced in a previous post New Year, New You! the holidays tend to be difficult for me and I get a little lonely and a little shall we say "Negative Nancy" about my life. Forgetting the good that has happened. So I think reflecting on the good that has come throughout the year will be wonderful to keep things in perspective.
I am going to attempt to blog more, but I can't make any promises. It's a busy life right now, in fact I may be giving up one of my three jobs. I just can't seem to keep up with it all. I love Pampered Chef and the money it provides, but I just do not have the energy to put the time in to really make it a successful business. I may just stick to my current full time job and the online job I have for a coupon website, I'm always up for more online work, so if you know of any people looking for help on their blogs, websites etc. just busy work, shit they don't want to do. Please let me know. I can dedicate a few hours a nice and it helps me buy groceries. HA!
Hope your first full weekend of the New Year is filled with all you hoped it to be.
A Late Start
