How’s your week going? I hope it’s going good, especially since we are heading into a long, three-day weekend – a much-needed extra day off for sure! This week has been semi-good with an unexpected phone interview on Monday – another non-SA job, but still an interview. And I think it went well, so we shall see. I have also been thinking (kinda seriously) about going back to school full-time. Kind of scary to think about. Here is my New Years Resolutions – Week 20 Update.
So why the going back to school? Because I don’t want to be stuck in this same cycle of doing the same things over and over with no rewards. Admin work is one of the most thankless jobs (even though we get one appreciation day a year [if your boss remembers it]). It is rewarding don’t get me wrong, but when you get to the point of being able to train and do the job of the person making twice your pay it gets frustrating – especially when you were passed over for that job because you don’t have any type of degree. Another reason? Because I love blogging and creating recipes and trying to take pretty pictures. I think I have found one of my passions (which I constantly search for) and I need to do something that will get me closer to that goal. Because I love this and not that – although I rock at being an admin, it is not fulfilling me and I really don’t get excited
when I talk about it. Talking about my site and what recipes I want to make and how I came up with some of the recent ones? Total excitement. How will school get me there? Becoming better at what I am good at, and learning how to grow a business. But – if school doesn’t happen, and the job that is paying well and has awesome health insurance? That will be what I go with and a different set of sacrifices will have to be made.
So I have noticed in the last month this little weekly update has been a real downer – like always complaining. Which is my natural state, but not really what I want to convey here. What to convey for our resolutions? That it is hard work to stay on track. And I have fallen off the wagon and gained weight, eaten crap food, eaten non-vegan food (shameful!!!), but no complaining. Just accepting. Acceptance is a hard thing to do, and follow through with. I can talk the talk, but walking the walk gets me nowhere. So my eating for this week was not that bad – you can see that from weight-loss below (woo-hoo!!), and the workouts happened! Exclamation point because it makes me feel good, because without the gym making myself actually do a “workout” it is hard! Hard to make it happen, to convince myself I should, just hard. But I did them. Yay me!
So now for the real update:
