About Me

My photo
So I live in the suburbs of Austin, with my awesome husband, who is also my best friend and our two gorgeous children. We are originally from NM, however my children were born in Austin! I currently work for a national recruiting firm as the head of the accounting dept. for 2 branches. My husband and I are both prior service Army and have served in many places around the world, including Iraq and Kuwait. I love working out and running. Once in a while I will try a fitness class. I love, love, love Beachbody workout programs!

Check in and future plans

Wow, I can't believe it's been a month since my last post. I don't know where the month went, it's already the middle of July. Well, my friends.. I have been on a mental journey this last month. I graduated with my BA from the University of Oklahoma. I have been going to school, off and on since having both of my kids. I feel like it took a decade to finish my degree and at times didn't ever think I would finish. I never gave up, the past year has been a rough one. Working full time and managing a home, then add on top of that 45 credit hours, yes, I completed 45 credit hours in one year. That's a lot of weekends spent doing homework. It feels good to be done and know I have accomplished what I initially set out to do.
With that, I decided to take a small break from the gym. My DH has been working almost non-stop the last 3 months, which leaves me taking care of it all, well everything except for myself. I felt like I had come a long way and there wasn't any reason I couldn't afford to take some time off from the gym. It felt good, and I didn't feel pressured or guilty not working out. I didn't even weight myself in the 2 weeks I tooks off! YAY! I did however, weigh in on the day I decided to get back in the gym and back on schedule. Much to my surprise, I didn't gain 1 pound! Winning!! I guess that is the result of having a good metabolism. Don't get me wrong, I worked for this good metabolism! :)

Aside from the gym and workouts, work pretty much sucks. I have grown to a great disliking of my position within the organization I work for. I have employed with the company 2 years this month. I am extremely disappointed that I have had almost no support from upper management to assist in advancing, there are little to no opportunities for accounting. I was promised a bonus, of which I held up my end of the bargain and at much to my disappointment, the other end (management) failed to hold up their end. I am not sure when the "last straw" was pulled, but this has got to be it. I feel like I am at my wits end with this job. I work so hard, yet, no reward is offered, it just makes no sense to me what so ever. I don't get it.. shouldn't the hard workers be rewarded?

I have come to the conclusion that I have to make a change, a big change. I have applied to the University of Texas @ Tyler, for their adult MBA program. I sincerely hope I get accepted!
Oh, and I have been on a couple different interviews for new jobs, I really want to work part time so I can be home more and have time to do the things that I want to do, for my career and for my kids and husband. I won't divulge too much about the interviews, but I sure hope I get a call back.. but for now, I am riding on the hope that I get to give my notice soon! ;)

Stay fit my friends and thanks for listening
