I seriously need to do some bloggy catching up, holy there were a lot of updates!

Down 1 lbs this week. Not great, not what I was shooting for, but not bad considering this week was PMS water retention week. I can't wait to see what the scales bring next WI. Will I finally see the 75 lbs loss? Fuck I hope so!

I'm so tired, so hurting. Work is no longer fun. It is now a job. This is not what I wanted to do with my life. I didn't not go "fuck yeah man I want to work in retail when I grow up!" I wanted to be on the radio. I did things differently, got married at 18, had a kid at 20, moved to a different country at 17 so that kind of nixed the college idea. Oh well.

Hubby keeps telling me to sell cars, I keep telling him if he doesn't shut his mouth his face is going to meet my fist. I don't give a fuck if I'm good at selling shit. I hate people and I don't want to put on the phony smile anymore. I'm sick of people pushing for discounts, pretending they're joking, and giving that wink wink nudge nudge. Fuck you asshole, you get no discount! I don't own the isn't up to me.

Bah. Sometimes I enjoy it, I think it's mostly when I get to work with my regional manager. I'm just really sick of this. I don't want to be there anymore.

I'm officially counting down to home time!

68 days to lose 17.2 lbs...that's 1.9 lbs a week. I'm going to work my ass off to pull this shit off! Wish me luck!

This post made me laugh. I would never, ever want to be on your bad side though.

1.9 is nothing, you can totally pull that off!

Tricia said...

You can do it, dude!

Sucks about the job. I know there are people somewhere in the world who actually enjoy their jobs...I just don't know any of them...and I'm certainly not one of them either. Hopefully one day we all find something to do that we don't hate that pays the bills, eh?

TjRenee said...

Hey, I'll take that 1# loss if you don't want it! hehehe

Sorry about the work situation. There are days I wished I were doing something else too. Life certainly hasn't gone the way I thought it would. :)

Good luck losing the next 17.2#. You can do it!!

Congrats on even just losing a pound! Surely better than gaining, right?? :-)

MackAttack said...

Wow, great job on losing during PMS, That's a talent! Sorry about the job, working with people sucks. Heck I've got a social work degree and refuse to deal with people!

A few months ago, I was sitting in jury duty with a big auditorium full of people from all walks of life. The guy running the show got up and addressed us as a group, explaining the whole deal and what to expect. One of the things he told us was that we'd probably wrap up early in the week, possibly by Wednesday, leaving us free to return to our jobs for the last two days of the week instead of being trapped in the jury duty world for the entire week. He explained though, that this wasn't a free pass to stay home and watch TV. If our employers called, he'd tell them that we had been released from jury duty and should have come back to work.

Then he stopped and made a very heartfelt speech that went something like this: "Y'know, I don't know you, but I do know this: if you hate your job, find something else to do that you don't hate. Or better yet, find something that you like. Life's too short to do something that you hate every day."

You never know where you're going to find wisdom in this world.

You can do that shit, Amber. Get hard core with it for a week or two, and watch that scale drop!

Great job being down a l lb for the week. Any weight loss is good. There are always challenges with job. I am starting to fall out of love with my job as well. That is why I am doing a part time business on the side.
Kick butt girl!
