We Fall Down, But We Get Up…

It has been a little while since I posted. I have to admit that I just haven’t felt like it. I have been having quite a time lately. I recently lost my job which hit me pretty hard. I can’t say that my job defined me but I really loved what I did and I loved the people that I worked with so to not have that anynore is a difficult thing.

Also, I fell off on my eating plan. I have been a bit lax with everything as I sort out my new role in life and for me, the way I eat is definitely affected by the way that I feel. It’s sad but true. I sm proudf to say that I am getting back on track with it though. I have my weigh-in on Wednesday to dee where I a currently; i haven’t weighed in three weeks.I find that knowing where I am helps me to know where I need to go.

My goal is to get myself back into a routine; getting up, showered and dressed even if I don’t have anywhere to be, and keeping myself busy. I am catching up on some reading, working on some projects around the house and my DVR has never been so clear. Most importantly, I am working to maintain my positivity through it all.

Tomi has been extremely supportive through all of this madness. It helps to know that she is always in my corner. Now, all I can do is pray and trust that God will make sure that things turn out the way that they are supposed to.


Love From My Biggest Fan

As of January 27th, 2011, I am an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay. I had sold Tomi enough on the idea to give me the money for my starter kit but other than that, I thought she couldn’t be bothered.
Well, one night I go out to my car after work and I see an envelope on my dash. The first thing I did is back up from the car and survey the area all the while who had been in my truck. Once I was sure things were safe, I got in and opened the envelope. In it was a card telling me how fabulous I am (which I never get tired of hearing). There was a note written in it from Tomi telling me how proud she was of me for stepping out of my comfort zone and starting my Mary Kay business.
She has been a great sounding board, brainstorming partner, walking advertisement and a really good sport about letting me scrub and rub stuff on her face. I appreciate having her support as I work to build my business.
