I've had one of those weeks.
Don't get me wrong, it was a pretty good week despite just a couple of things. But I let those couple things get the better of me early in the week, and I swear it just brought on more bad things until I finally said enough and told life, no more bad! It mostly worked, LOL (Broken laptop, Unexpected Bills, just the un-fun stuff in life to name a few.)
I did pretty terrible this week with fitness/running. I only have myself to blame I allowed a few things to get in the way, and instead of working around a few days, I got lazy.
With that, I don't have any weight loss to share this week, in fact I actually gained 1 pound. But I am not as bummed about that as you'd think. Because this week I started to notice my clothes are finally starting to get loose. So I ended the week, with being at 11 pounds down on my goal, but still happy about it.
NEW TEMPORARY JOB PLANS
In one of the things I am working on, which I will excitedly announce my plans in 3 weeks or less, I am just waiting for a few little details to happen and then I will share it with you all.
But part of that process means doing something I literally hate, and although it will only be for a short time, I can't tell you how hard it is to get used to the idea.
That thing I will hate, I'll say in short it means taking on a certain job short term. It's not exactly the job I am cringing about, I mean it will only be for a short time. But its the schedule I will be asked to work, which starts at 6AM. EEEEKKKK
I will get up to run in early hours, but getting up to work at those hours? I think I am losing my mind! Ha Ha.
I will tell you, it was the fasted job I have ever landed. Since I didn't care whether I got it or not, I went into it beyond relaxed and just decided to play a little game.
Years back I use to interview for jobs, just for fun. It was a game to see if I could get offered a job and how quickly I could convince them to offer it. So I went into this on Monday with a game to see if I could convince them to hire me on the spot.
I find this works best when you don't care too much, and you have zero nerves. In fact one of the interviewers even said to me that they have never seen anyone so relaxed sitting down for an interview. LOL (Oddly though, I have been told that before in interviews. I just don't see what's to be nervous about, they don't know me, I don't know them no reason to be nervous.)
It took me an hour, but I scored a win as I did manage to get them to offer me the job by the end of the interview. I did accept the job a day later. (But I won't start until May.)
However, they almost made me quit before I started. A few days later making me come in for the full hiring process that I swear took a couple of hours (even though they told me it would take not long at all.) With all the security, finger printing, and drug and background check's you'd think I was starting a job with the FBI, yikes. I've never had a job do all that before, but I've worked for myself for many years so I guess things are changing.
I told them, with security checks like this, it makes me wonder what crazies they've hired in the past that warranted all this. They laughed, but I was serious LOL LOL
Took 4 of my cute nieces and nephews to see the Kung Fu Panda 3 movie. They were lots of fun and the boys ate far more popcorn than I thought a 3 and 4 year old could LOL!
After, we did a little hot tub time at my sisters, my niece wore the mermaid tail I made for her several months back for her birthday. Have to admit, it looked awesome. It's fun to see that she likes it so much and has so much fun with it.
I'm in the process of making another for one of my other nieces, I am just waiting for the Monofin I ordered to arrive.
I played hookie from real life one morning and took myself to see the new Allegiant movie. I loved the book series. But at first I was disappointed in this movie. Granted it has been a while since I read the book, but I distinctly remember an entirely different ending in the book, I didn't like that they changed the movie so much and I couldn't figure out why. Don't worry I won't spoil it for you:)
That was until the next day I was mentioning it to a friend who also loved the books and she told me that this was only part 1, and part 2 was coming next year. Wheeeew
I wish I had known that before, I think I would have been less confused watching it, LOL Oh well, glad it will eventually end like its supposed to end and now things make far more sense:)
ALASKA AIRLINES AMBASSADORSHIP
This week, I am a little more motivated to not let daily life get in the way of a morning run.
Those of you who follow me on social media may already know this.
I was offered an Ambassadorship with Alaska Airlines, they sponsor several races and marathons around the country.
Even though I am an after the fact blogger, after careful consideration I decided to make an exception in this instance and share this with you all on here as well.
I considered it quite a bit before accepting, I wanted to make sure I had enough time to participate in their program and most importantly any races I was offered.
(I am not one of those influencers who accept ambassadorships but do nothing with them after. I like to participate in the programs as much as I possibly can. Which is why I a picky about the ones I accept and join.)
Once I accepted, I was given the first marathon they'd like me to run under the program, it's in April. So Obviously I am not ready for a full marathon yet, but I talked to them about it and fortunately the race also has a 5K, so it looks as though I may be doing that one instead.
More details will be shared on social media, and I might do a recap or share more on my blog as well after the race but I haven't decided on that yet. However, you definitely will see more details on my various social media channels.
So those are a few details of my week.
Tell me something that happened in your week.
Since I will be racing in April, tell me about any April races your excited about.
I am linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddlin today for their Weekly Wrap!
