First thing’s first. I really need to start remembering to take ‘before and after’ photos. (caution: my brain is all over the place today)
Before and after is about several things right now. I’ve been running 2 miles every 2-3 days for I think about 3 wks now, and even though I haven’t exactly been writing down what I eat, I think I’ve been keeping a pretty good track of it. Well, maybe I’m not! Because my belly still seems to look like it can talk. I just gross myself out. And it’s frustrating because I know I FEEL like my abs and arms and back are all getting stronger, but it’s hard not to quit when I want to see at least some sort of result NOW!
I applied to a couple jobs last week, hoping I would hear something back already, what with my new approach to the cover letter. I wrote it in a book format. Like prologue, 3 chapters, epilogue and credits. Don’t worry, it wasn’t crazy long, each section was really only a paragraph, at most. All that work, and nothing. NOTHING. How can you not feel anything but hopeless?!
On the one hand, I love what I’m doing to make some extra $$ on the side www.heatherclarkdesigns.com if anyone is interested. BUT, it’s definitely not enough to start a business, especially since I charge a very financially friendly price. I would love to have a fulltime job (that I enjoy) and be able to create invites and such on the side. Maybe one day it will grow, but I really want more experience in the working world before I ever decide to venture on my own.
Sorry, tangents. Back to the fung shui. Since I am making a valiant effort to save money where I can, I’m homebound like a housewife most days, taking care of the furrbabies (do not be fooled, they are terrors)
…cleaning, organizing, reorganizing, redecorating, and so on. Sometimes the husband comes home and I’ve moved furniture and changed decorations, or painted something, haha…I just need change! I see/do the same stuff almost everyday, the monotony is driving me mad! So I spent the last 2 days earning my housewife certification, and before travelling to class tonight, I left my husband the following text msg : “Use caution when entering the house, items may have shifted during absence.”
Thank you, and good night.
ps….I did run today.
