MY WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY

May 30, 2020

December 20, 2019. 

I’ll never forget that stupid day.

I was assaulted by a number.  A number on a scale…  that I happened to be standing on. 

And I didn’t even see it coming.  

You know the routine.  The nurse calls your name and asks you to stand on the scale.  A number pops up and she records it in your file.  Boom.  Over.  You move on.

You move on unless that is...

JOB SEARCH TIPS FROM AN HR PRO

May 24, 2020

I can’t even begin to express how much my heart hurts for the millions of individuals who have found themselves without employment during the current coronavirus crisis.  Being out of work during normal economic conditions is bad enough.  When those conditions plummet during a world-wide pandemic, being unemployed can be nothing short of scary.  

The national unemployment rate went from 3.7 percent in 2019 to its current high of 14.7...

49 LIFE LESSONS I’VE LEARNED

May 16, 2020

Today is my birthday!

I love my birthday.  I’m like a little kid about the whole thing.  Presents, cards, cake, balloons, parties – all of it gets me super excited.  

But this birthday has been a bit different.  I usually spend most of my free time before the big day planning my celebration and wondering what I’m getting from the hubby.  That has not been the case this year.  I’ve been much more reflective,...

TOP TEN TIPS FOR ACHIEVING YOUR GOALS

May 09, 2020

If I were to have a personal motto, it would simply be: Get Stuff Done.

I’ve been saying that phrase to myself several times a day for at least a year and found that it gets me pumped, focused and motivated. It’s not something that I intentionally started doing. It just became a phrase (more like a command) that I started telling myself when my list of goals started growing. I often catch myself thinking things like, “I am going to get stuff done today.” or...

MY ROUTINE DURING QUARANTINE

Apr 10, 2020

The year 2020 kinda sucks.

So far this year has seen me in the midst of a grueling job search (which sucked), the unexpected death of my father (which also sucked) and being confined to the house because of COVID-19 (which majorly sucked).

I guess another way to describe the year is simply crazy. But it hasn’t been a total loss. I did find a job that is perfect for me, and I was able to grieve my father adequately. However, I still have not been able to wrap my mind around the...

20 GOALS FOR 2020… OH MY!

Feb 07, 2020

 

If you’ve been following my blog for a month or so, you know that I love to set goals when the New Year starts. It’s just as much of a tradition for me as putting up the Christmas tree and shopping on Black Friday. I actually get a bit giddy as January 1 approaches because I get to take another crack at improving several areas of my life.

Now don’t get me wrong, I completely understand that I can start working on a goal at any time of the year. My starting point has...

WORD OF THE YEAR – THRIVE!

Jan 10, 2020

Hello and Happy New Year! I know that I am a little late with my traditional first post (and sometimes ONLY post) of the year. This is because it took me longer than usual to come up with my new intention word for 2020. But as of this morning… I have it!

Last year’s word – HUSTLE – saw me pushing myself until near burnout, but a lot of progress was made. Not in the areas that I thought would be maximized, but I hustled and made changes nonetheless.

After studying many...
