So When Are You Going Back to Work and Other Rude Things Said to Me

I’m so freakin’ happy!!! Wait happy? Yes, happy and most definitely relieved. I posted some time last week that I’ve been without access to work as a medical transcriptionist for quite a bit of time. Well, it’s goin’ on week 2 now and mama here needed a new gig. I also wasn’t in love with being an independent contractor. I was getting a lower rate of pay and I’ll have to pay my own taxes for the little bit of time that I had that status. No thank you… I was just re-hired by the company I left in early April. I did IC work for a company that subcontracted with the company I just left which I didn’t realize until I had started with them. It completely pissed me off because I could’ve just stayed were I was, had my taxes handled and had use of a company computer. Lesson learned. I start with them again in 2 weeks, so I’ll be treating these next 2 weeks like a vacation. I work part time because with a house to take care of and a special needs child that needs well special tending to, I have no time, or desire, to work full time. I know, how un-modern woman of me… to not want to have a career and have it all. Well, that depends on how you look at things. To me I do have it all. I have an amazing husband who works very hard so I don’t have to. Yeah, I said it. I work hard taking care of our home and children, I don’t want to have to work hard…

Three Ways Coaching Has Positively Impacted My Life

This post contains affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for more details. Last year I became a health coach. I did this for 2 main reasons: I wanted to hold myself accountable for my own health. I wanted to help others on their journey toward a healthier lifestyle. A couple of years ago I met this awesome lady on Facebook. We suffered the same awful heart condition brought on by pregnancy so we met in an online support group for this condition and we seemed to hit it off quite nicely. Then I found out she was a Beachbody Coach and that just made me love her tons and tons more! I love all things Beachbody. I’ve been a customer since 2002 when Slim in 6 was popular. In fact becoming a Beachbody Coach is something I’ve thought about for quite some time, since maybe 2010. I had ordered Chalene Extreme, which was Beachbody’s newest program at the time, and read about becoming a coach on the flyer/pamphlet that came packed up with my new program. Sadly though about a week later I literally tripped over my own foot, fell out of my front door and oh-so gracefully landed on my outstretched wrist and smashed (yes, SMASHED) said wrist in three places. Hey, when I do something it’s go BIG or go home. Surprisingly I didn’t need surgery to fix it, just six LONG weeks in a splint followed by almost four months of intense physical therapy to help restore a decent range of motion in not only my newly healed wrist but also my elbow (my splint encased my elbow s well, so it was affected too). So, the idea of becoming a Beachbody Coach was…

July Goals

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy for more details. Is it seriously July already? Is it just me or do the months seem to go by faster and faster? I’ve been wanting to set monthly goals for a while now, but whenever I remember to write them down it’s usually the middle of the month that I wanted to set my goals for, and then I just tell myself, girl… you’ll get there next month. Well, I took a bit of advice from my husband and I wrote down, set goals for July so I wouldn’t forget again. He’s been trying to get me to write down things so I don’t forget them for pretty much the entirety of our marriage, which is almost 25 years. Who knew it would actually work? For me. I’m so forgetful that even if I write something down to remind myself of it, I’ll often forget that I wrote it down. Just don’t tell my husband about all of this. He’s a Leo so his ego is already as big as all of outdoors and this just might make it nearly impossible to live with him. And I in no way mean to offend any Leos. I love Leos, obviously because I married onSe. I’ve never come across a more loving and generous sign and my Venus is in Leo. So my heart literally belongs to Leos. So, let’s see what I wanted to do in June… In June I wanted to…. Remember to set goals for July. Write down that I need to set goals for July. Set goals for July…
