Blah Kinda Day

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

I'm making homemade potato salad today! I got the eggs boiled and peeled and need to chop up the onions, black olives, and dill pickles, and then I need to peel cut up and boil the potatoes. I was thinking of pairing it with Jennie-O sweet Italian sausage link in a Sara Lee roll with sauteed peppers on top.

I got half of the clothes photographed, priced, and ready for me to post on the Facebook plus size clothing group. I have 1x, 2x, 3x, 18/20 tops, a few skirts, 2 bras, and a peplum dress to try and sell. Next I'll have to photograph the jeans/pants and 1 more dress.

Clothes

Sunday, July 27, 2014

I got the cutest lunch bag yesterday from Ross for when I start my job :) I have an anticipated orientation date of August 5th which is only 9 days away. I figured I'd be needing a lunch bag at some point so I picked one up for $4.99, something cheap and easy for now. I saw one that I REALLY wanted with minnie mouse on it but that one was almost $20.00 so I stuck with the cheaper option.

Hopefully today I'll be able to photograph and catalog all of the clothes I have that I want to sell. I'm hoping to have them posted before I start work so I can get it out of the way. Maybe I'll have the bf help me today to make it go faster.

Exhaustion Setting In

Saturday, July 26, 2014

Really tired again today... my body aches and feels really weak. I've been trying to cut back on my workouts but it's been hard and finding it even harder to include a rest day in to my routine. I work out on average 2.5 hours every day 7 days a week but it helps if I break that time up throughout the day.

    I have the same problem. I found that going an hour and 40 minutes is a lot easier on my body than 2+ hours. I also try to do one day 1 hour, next day 1 hour 40 back and forth and my energy levels are rising back up a lot! Mentally its hard because the fear of gaining weight is so strong but it does work! Just try taking 20 minutes off the first day something like that and see how you feel!

    WOW, that is a lot of exercise per day. Only you know what is best for you. I too agree that a rest day is important.

  Your body will let you know when to take a short break.
Before listening to it try doing some stretching.
When I stretch sometimes my thinking will shift.

    Please remember that a rest day is a good and healthy thing for your body! That sounds like a very large amount of time spent working out, no wonder you are tired! If you are working out to take care of your body, also give it the rest that it needs :) I hope that you are able to have a wonderful rest day and I hope that you feel less exhausted soon!

    As the experts say - listen to your body. You know better than anyone what feels normal and what does not. Take care, and have a good weekend.

Orientation and Final Interview

Friday, July 25, 2014

Waiting on the job to schedule my orientation :) Waiting sure is a pain but I'm just happy knowing I have a job!

I called Target back since when they called me I was at the ER admitting my uncle in the hospital. I got transferred to the woman who called and left me a voicemail message and she told me they are fully booked for interviews this week and they will call me back next week. I waited for 2 weeks for them to call back and now I have to wait another week! I have never heard of it taking that long to schedule a final interview before. My friend who works at the location I applied to said the manager who does the hiring was off yesterday... perhaps that's why it's taking so long because she keeps leaving/going on vacation in the midst of a hiring spree.

My uncle is home from the hospital! He got back home yesterday afternoon in time to have dinner :) I made a pasta bake with penne pasta, homemade sauce for the most part (ground beef, yellow onions, green bell peppers, roma tomatoes, 3 heirloom tomatoes, minced garlic, and a jar of Ragu), and crumbled up smoked gouda cheese. I baked everything together for about 15-20 minutes and everyone liked it!

    Hiring is super slow. Applied in Sept for job that I have now, interviewed in Dec., found out I had it in Jan. and started in April. Was frustrating, but I love it now that I'm here.

    The culture of being unkind to job applicants surprised me. My DD interviewed in May for a job. They called her back for a final interview of 3 people in mid-May. She waited and hoped and finally gave up because they never called her back to say yes or no. Seven weeks later they called her and offered her a position contingent on a background check. She waited again without word. Finally she was offered another part time job elsewhere and told the full time job she needed an answer. They finally gave her a full offer and a start date for mid August exactly 3 months after the final interview.
People looking for work have every right to be stressed. Glad you have a firm offer from the other place.
So glad to hear you uncle is feeling better and is at home again.

    I've been following your job quest. Unfortunately its always like that. Once, I interviewed and found out I got a job in the beginning of November, but didnt actually start until January 7th!
