Hello Again

I know that I haven’t written anything in a long while. That is mostly because not a whole lot has changed. Life has trudged on in the same fashion that it has been for the past year. Nothing has happened on my relationship front. I haven’t got any new leads on a job somewhere. I have put out lots of resumes and cover letters to no avail. I’m afraid that I’m not qualified or too qualified for the positions that I’m applying for.

My weight loss has stalled again. And it’s usually over the tremendous amounts of stress that I’ve been under. I’ve been trying very hard not to stress eat but it doesn’t always work. I did get a Nutribullet and I have been using that for the past week and a half with good results so far. In the very least I am getting in all of my fruits and veggies for the day. I have even thought about doing the Simply Filling Technique from Weight Watchers (since I am still making my weekly appearances there). I have a feeling that doing SFT would be hard considering that I am around regular food anyways when it comes to feeding my son.

I have been trying to make some money with Amazon Mechanical Turk and have been getting at least a couple of dollars a day that I’m putting away for work clothes, stuff that I’ll need for my next house, and my emergencies. If you follow my Avon page on Facebook I have really ramped up posts there and on Twitter. I post great deals in both locations. Because saving money is important, it doesn’t matter how much you have.

I have also pulled out some of my writing from way back, and have started trying to formulate ways that I can storyboard it for novel ideas. She snorted unbelievingly. Writing is hard, because if it was easy everyone would do it. I will try to post more here because believe it or not I do like to write.

Hi There Change

So today is my weigh in day at Weight Watchers. When I got up on the scale today I dropped another 1.4 pounds. That made me feel awesome! Then the wonderful lady that weighed me in told me that because I was doing so well my Daily Points Target went down by 1. šŸ˜¦ And here I just got used to the 29 that I had before. I normally fluctuate in weight on the week following a point drop because I’ve lost that extra point to play with. Change and I aren’t usually a good thing. And then after a sushi lunch out I got the fortune cookie that said “You will make change for the better.” That was just what I needed. Maybe I should ask for fortune cookies before I eat. LOL!

I was proud of myself this week with following the WW plan. I tracked almost everything except last night because I knew that I had enough points to handle the buffet that I was going to without going over board. If something tasted salty I didn’t eat anymore of it. I stuck with veggies and un-sauced meat. Now I just need to keep at drinking water.

While I was munching away on my plate of sushi I get an email from the district leader for AVON telling me that they were having an Event just a couple of doors down from where I was at the restaurant. So I decided (especially after I got that fortune) that I needed to go down a couple of doors and see what was happening! From now on I’m going to do some AVON Events on Saturdays! Next Saturday (February 9th) I’ll be in Leeds, AL at the The Shops of Grand River in the Wilson’s Leather Outlet! So come by and say Hi! We’ll be giving out samples and catalogs.

Change is always right around the corner. There is always something. If life was always a straight road it would be pretty boring. We make important decisions everyday and even little ones can have a big effect on your life. It has been a big decision to keep on working on losing weight, and it was a big decision for me to start selling AVON. But it is little things that help with those big decisions and they guide you to do what you need.
