Weekend Update

Hey there, I actually did my CardioScuplt DVD on Friday morning. I know, it's shocking! I set a really low goal for myself of 60 minutes of exercise this week. Let's see if I can manage to motivate myself to actually do the d*mn DVD again!

I have good news. An executive recruiter for a high-profile national company called me for a screening interview! It's my first interview since I started applying for jobs in March! I'm very excited, but I'm trying to keep it in perspective and not make too much of a big deal about it. I've been networking with a couple of alums from my undergraduate university and one of them passed my resume along to this recruiter. (I would network with alums from my grad school, but the university's alumni directory sucks big time and it's a regional school so there aren't many alums in other parts of the country where I am applying for jobs. My goal is to move out of this area.) I'll let you know how the screening process goes.

My eating goal this week is to only use 3 flex points a day. If I earn activity points, I can use those too. I don't know if I'm going to reach this goal, but since I only lost 20% of 1 pound last week I want to get back on track. Even if I use more than 3 points a day, I'll still probably use less flex points than I normally do.

Enjoy the remainder of the weekend. I'll be prepping for my interview tomorrow on my laptop in the shade at the pool :)

hey, saw your comment on Rebecca's blog so thought I'd drop over. good job on the weight loss! i did WW for awhile but I got so bored. i switched to South Beach and got the weight off (50 pounds) and now I just exercise and watch...watch...the stupid scales. guess that will be a forever thing.

i know what you mean about shopping by yourself. yesterday, i hit the thrift stores and walmart and realized...looking around at a thrift store is really NO fun by yourself..sigh.

I think that 3 flexies a day, plus APs is a great plan to have...it's totally do-able!

oh god, I need to get the weight loss thing going. I usually laugh that I'm like a cat and put on weigh in the winter when I can't work horses as much and then take it off in the summer when there's lots to do. But this year I packed on an extra ten and this spring the weather has sucked so it's still ALL here. I need to get focused!
