Happy to be back

Well, today I started my new job, sort of. It’s not really a new job, I’m working where I was working two years ago, when the Covid19 pandemic began. I had a good first day because I knew what to do, and I knew the people. It had been two years so I had to … Continue reading Happy to be back

I had to leave, it just wasn’t worth it

This weekend I had to come to a decision to quit my job at Old Navy. It may seem a bit drastic to quit after not even two months or that I gave up too easy, but I assure you neither of those are true. I do not hold anything against the company, it just … Continue reading I had to leave, it just wasn’t worth it

Intense Thanksgiving weekend

I don’t think I had been able to take a break and relax for the last three days until this afternoon. First there was Thanksgiving on Thursday when, even though it was nice seeing family again after at least two years, it was still a lot being a co-host to the celebration. If waking up … Continue reading Intense Thanksgiving weekend

Insanity workouts: DONE!

That’s it, I did it! I finished the 60 day Insanity program. I still can’t believe I did it and, as I’ve already said it, I didn’t think I would be able to do it but I had to try and I did it! I worked out six days a week for nine weeks from … Continue reading Insanity workouts: DONE!

A week full of distractions

After a pretty intimidating first week of month two of the Insanity workouts, I have to say I’m a little relieved. I was afraid my knee would start bothering me again and maybe even hurt more but I don’t feel anything like that. By the end of each of these workouts I can barely do … Continue reading A week full of distractions

Finished Insanity: Month 1!

Guess what I did today. I finished month one of Insanity! Honestly, I can’t even describe how I feel; I don’t really know. It’s a mix of proud, surprised, motivated, happy and tired. I’m very tired but I think that’s understandable, it’s been four very tough weeks. I haven’t skipped one day and some days … Continue reading Finished Insanity: Month 1!

Working hard for what I want

I’ve got some good news, I got a job! I was worried it might take a long time because I thought I would be competing with a lot of other people. I sent many resumes but heard back from one of them for an interview pretty quickly and I got it! I’m nervous about it, … Continue reading Working hard for what I want

Insanity Max: 30- Week 16

I made it to the end the program, I’m in the last week of Insanity Max:30! This week I will try to workout in the morning and use the stationary bike before and the treadmill after. I will have time to do that until I find a job, which will hopefully happen soon, but until … Continue reading Insanity Max: 30- Week 16

Saying goodbye to my students

For the last year, because of the pandemic, I had been working as a shadow teacher for a few kids at their parent’s workplace. Because the kids are going back to school, today was my last day. As I said goodbye to the girls, I couldn’t help but think about everything we went through this … Continue reading Saying goodbye to my students

Love three day weekends!

I don’t remember if I told you but after I finished T25 Beta I learned that there was another set of videos. I had some trouble getting them but this weekend Focus T25 Gamma arrived! I was so excited today was a holiday because, well I get the day off from work and because I … Continue reading Love three day weekends!

Need more time to write

I am now taking the second course for the Digital Marketing online certification and I think it’s going well. One of the reasons I decided to get that certification was that it would help my blog, and I still think it will, however I am having a little trouble blogging right now. Ever since my … Continue reading Need more time to write

I can find a way to do it all

Keeping up with blogging, exercising, working and taking classes all at the same time has not been very easy so far. I was able to keep up with everything during my three week Christmas break because I was on vacation, but now that I’m back to work and working more hours than last year, it … Continue reading I can find a way to do it all

First day of work 2021

Today was the first day of work after Christmas vacation and first day of work of 2021. First days of anything after vacation are always horrible but this one wasn’t bad. The only thing that was difficult was having to wake up at 6:30 again. I thought I wouldn’t want to go for a walk … Continue reading First day of work 2021

Certifications to get the job I want

I have decided to start taking classes again. I know that I need something more than a bachelors in writing to get a a job in a field that interests me. I thought about aiming for a masters but it’s expensive and takes two years. I don’t need more debt, I already have enough of … Continue reading Certifications to get the job I want
