Meant to say yesterday hun, I would be honest about the knee op, then WHEN you get the job, you won't feel awkward by saying.."Well, actually...."
have a good one x
What day is your interview? Have they moved it forward due to snow? Hope all is and does go well. Xx
Hi gals thanks for the advice and the good wishes, interview is today..not holding out much hope for success but it's a good development opportunity all the same, really feel like I'm fighting with the big boys on this one!
I have told my mentor about my knee op and he is on the interview panel, but I will also drop it in at the end of the interview.
I'm doing well with the change in habits....no junk, tv down to less than 2 hrs per evening ( which is better than my target!) ad we've stuck to our food plan. Got a hectic day ahead including the interview at lunch time and the cat to to the vet ( routine visit, nothing nasty) tonight. I won't hear anything about the job until tomorrow or Friday anyway as they are interviewing over two days.
Have a good one folks ! X
Good luck hun have a good day x x
Thanks Jayde, came out feeling that I did well...but was it good enough? I will know tomorrow afternoon or Friday morning!
Good day everything else wise, finally feeling back to my tigger like self and on top of work. Catch ya soon x
Well done!!! hope it goes your way hun let us know, but either way you did your best and thats all you can do x x
Totally Jayde :0) ...ooooh I'm soooooo proud of myself today! I bought myself a drifter this afternoon after my interview, just for comfort.....but I actually recognised that fact when I sat down at my desk, decided I wasn't hungry and threw it in the drawer. It's still there! ( well, unless the cleaner has nicked it! ;0))
Also after the vets I asked hubby if he was hungry...we both were as it was 6.30 ...we had arranged for tesco to do a home delivery between 7-9, so we started to discuss picking up fish and chips on the way home....something in my head said I was letting myself down and it's the times like this that are sabotaging an otherwise pretty good day. Its just a habit! After a lot of soul searching ( and believe me this was a full on row going on between Angelina and Fred ) I said no and we came home to egg on toast instead...ok it was a fried egg BUT thats a huge leap forward for me!
I now feel very smug indeed...let's see how long the drifter stays in my desk! Now there's a challenge! X
Hi Gem goodnews with the drifter!next time try the bin. The waste of money thought is a double whammy!
Welldone with the takeaway...getting stronger by the day luv.
Fingers crossed for you
Good luck hun, hope you hear exciting news today! Fingers crossed for you
Well done on refusing to give into temptation ...egg and toast wins on the calories war Gem...good choice!
Is the drifter still there?..give it to a colleague
Hi all....still no news so I presume I haven't got it. Still I'm fine, my job isn't that bad and I have been chosen to do Springboard training in my company which is a great honour as only 30 peeps have been chosen across the organisation. If I get the job I will have to step down so there are pluses for staying put!
Made good choices again today...hubby mentioned fish and chips again this afternoon ( we both work for the same place and he is always emailing me about whats for dinner lol) I said nope as we had the hairy dieters mushroom and chicken risotto Planned ...so just eaten that and I'm contented and smug again lol.
Yep the drifter is still in my drawer! It's almost a challenge now to see how long I can keep it there lol!
Went swimming this morning which was great...so, apart from being on tender hooks about the jobs it's been a pretty good day. I think this " change of habits" theory is ringing the right bells with me. I can concentrate on saying no to a takeaway but everything else is ok, I suddenly don't want the everything else either! Weird how our little minds work isn't it?
Tv is still staying off for longer than we planned. And the food shop last night was all fresh ingredients, no crap! Yay! Four days in and doing ok!
Well done hun, your determination is admirable
No news is good news..and even if they have gone for someone else..its their loss!!!
All sounds good Gem, spring board ???? Is that in a gym or swimming pool? Xx
I didn't get the job.....again , I get feedback that it was a closely run thing and I was totally appoint able but someone else just pipped me at the post...it's getting tiresome now and I do wonder if it's to do with my weight sometimes....but to be honest I'm just glad it's all over. Thing is I'm good at what I do, I enjoy what I do...so I'm only really doing all this to earn some extra money....it's silly really. I think I've just spent so much of my life having to fight for everything I've forgotten what it's like not to have to! I have a good job, a lovely hubby, a great son, a lovely home.....I don't actually need to earn anymore so I'm gonna take a breather from applying for promotions and just get on with life!
Springboard training is training aimed towards women who feel they have barriers in life and work. It's an internationally recognised course and my organisation has just started using it...I'm one of 30 women in the first cohort. It starts in two weeks time and lasts for two months. It sounds really interesting and I'm just looking for it to give me some peace really.
I've done over 9 hours today at work today and I'm really tired. I didn't eat much though ...just weetabix this morning, an apple at lunchtime and a yoghurt this afternoon. Came home to a lovely m& s pasta which was a compromise from a takeaway. The drifter is still uneaten and I now have four days off work. I have a uni assignment due so have taken some leave so I don't get as stressed as last time!
Anyway have a great weekend folks x
I don't think it's your weight hun compared to a lot of people you are small! I do think that women are still often over looked and a lot of places - especially councils - its 'a boys club'. I never used to believe that women were still treated differently but I've witnessed it a lot recently which I've found quite upsetting. Well done anyway you are doing well and like you said you have a lovely life x x x
Aww..booo! As i said Gem, their loss! Don't be thinking its weight related, they surely couldn't discriminate like that, its wrong on so many levels!!!!
As Jayde says, you are not 'big' enough for anyone to be narrow minded enough to think excess weight stops your brain from working properly. So don't worry, the fact you reached interview stage is a good sign. Keep that in mind and next time..that perfect job will have your name on it!
have a good weekend
