Sticks & Stones

There are a few things in the world that really piss me off! Children being neglected and when I hear gossip about me!

Work is becoming more and more stressful. I got promoted (apparently 1wk ago and wasn't told until today) to assistant manager, which is great! BUT...im getting crap already from my co-workers. So here's the story.  I started my job about a year ago. My trainer who was the assistant manager ( and has only been for about 4-months)  is having a lot of personal problems and her mind just isn't at work anymore. I like my trainer...but I use to REALLY like my trainer.  Her soon-to-be mother-n-law also works in the bakery, and she is a very bitter person. (If you go back a few post you will read about an argument we got into one morning.) So the husband/son basically threatened me today. No, he didn't do it to my face, but he told one of my co-workers Thursday that if i talked to his mother like that again I was going to get my butt kicked ( he cursed, of course). He also called my some really mean and nasty names.

So here's the thing. I'm human...and yeah words can hurt=(  Specially when there really isn't a reason for this guy to be in the middle of it. His mother started the argument with me - I didn't argue with him and I didn't start it with her.  And his wife ( my trainer) is acting really cold towards me too.

  My husband wants to confront him but this isn't high school anymore...were adults. I choose to ignore them.

Then another co-worker this morning ask me to do some of her job and when I said I didn't have time, she acted all mad? She said no-body helps her....i help everybody and poor me,blah, blah, blah. ( that last part I added in  HA) I made her mad...but you know what? She'll get over it. I told her to call the boss if she has a problem ;-)

Sigh, I just wonder how my position as an assistant manger is going to be? Will I be good at it? I told my boss that I really didn't want anymore responsibility to begin with, but then she starts training me on cake decorating and she ask my opinions on things. Which is kinda cool, ya know.  But the assistant manager is responsible for ordering supplies and doing some paper work. Im guessing I will be good at that...I use to work at a doctors office. Will have to see. I did get a raise...two weeks ago. I was wondering why my paychecks were more LOL. My boss never told me about the raise...

Update on Life

Its very quiet this morning. I'm off work, the kids are at school, the hubby is asleep getting ready for work tonight and I've got the house all to myself. Very nice.

On Today's Agenda:
Get in a workout, im thinking full body heavy weight lifting. Then Im going to run into town and see if the local consignment shop has some blue jeans for Elizabeth, my 9yr old. She is complaining about not having enough jeans. Lately she has been complaining a lot. Even though I bought her 5-brand new pairs at Target at the beginning of the school year, but guess what? Those don't fit anymore. So no more spending  +15$'s on one pair of jeans when I can get them barely used for 4.25! Am I right?
Kids grow WAY to fast....

I do have one more thing on my agenda...no eating after 8pm.

Changing my Blog Name:
So since im not really focused right now on dieting and im just trying to maintain my weight, eat healthy and take care of my family during all that. I've decided to change the name of my blog...again. But what?

In the near future you may see a blog you don't recognize in your blog roll...don't delete me =)

I like the name' Maintaining Sanity ' or ' One Day at a Time' any other suggestions? Im all ears....

It's Been A While...

...and life's been very busy for me! We just got back from a little 3-day getaway. We visited the great smoky mountains in Tennessee. We stayed in Gatlinburge and boy did we have a blast! There is so much to do around there...so many places to spend your money. HA!

I think the last time I posted I was doing Weight Watchers. After two weeks of it I got very discouraged and fell off the wagon. Then I cancel my subscription with them.

I came to the conclusion that no fancy-smancy website is going to help me lose weight....its all up to me to do it. As of right now, im just watching what I eat and trying to maintain my weight. I would love to fit into a smaller size pants but the reality is that my life is just too damn busy and to add the added pressure of dieting makes me crazy! I mean really, really crazy!!! 

But on the bright side I'm really enjoying my new Cathe workouts. The Low Impact Series is kicking my butt and I've noticed some positive changes in my body :)

August check-in

Morning, Are you having a good day? I hope you can say 'yes I am' cause I'm always having a good day when I'm not at work....
