Happy Tuesday!!!

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!  As it's getting closer to May, I'm halfway at an arm's reach to my goal weight and feeling stronger and healthier everyday.  My weeks have been consisted of 3-4 days of running on the treadmill for 20 minutes straight mixed with various weight training, push ups, pull ups and resistance band workouts.  Along with my workouts, I've been consistent with my healthy meals while taking supplements like Whey Protein shakes, Flaxseed Oil, CLA and other daily vitamins. I'd have to say, without these supplements and the constant workouts, I would not be seeing results weekly.

As an update, back in January, I was at my highest of 125lbs!  Holy Cow!  As of today, I am now at 114lbs!  Thank you baby Jesus!!!  Incase you were wondering, my goal weight is 108lbs.  At the moment, I'm currently setting it to 110lbs which makes it more attainable and closer to reach, right? Haha...  Gotta fit into that Lace Bodycon Dress by May 20th!!!

Aside from my usual workout, I received a phone call this morning from the folks I interviewed with 2 weeks ago during the time my family was in town.  After speaking with the Accounting Specialist (whom interviewed me), she informed me that I was one of her strongest candidates and top pick, therefore she asked me if I was still interested in the job which of course I quickly responded with a "YES, indeed!" answer. She then mentioned that she was still trying to wrap things up with interviews and so forth and that she would follow up with me on Thursday. Honestly, I wasn't expecting a call from them as I knew I had a tough competition. I suppose her follow up with me is a good sign? We'll see what happens by the end of the week!!! *Crossing Fingers*!!!

A couple days ago, I was also invited for an interview at my old alma mater of the University of California at San Diego.   The interview was for a Project Assistant position for the Healthy Environments Research and Action Center, however of course it's in San Diego and the only interviews available were for today of which flight tickets back are $500 one way!!! Such a difficult decision I had to make and weigh out since it would be a leap of faith that I would have had to take on that one.  Being thousands of miles away from where I'd ideally like to be is tough especially when it comes to job interviews so I think at the moment, I'll have to stack my chips into the last interview I had as the job is only 5 minutes away by car from home!  Not bad!

Oh yes, I also received my package from Sephora this morning along with all the samples!  I'm pretty satisfied with my second train case and wanted to share what I had been struggling to purchase for the past few months now, lol.  So here it is...

(Samples L-R) Clinique 3-Step Skin Care System, Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Hydrator,
Murad Rejuvenating Lift,  Gucci by Gucci for Men and Jack Black Hand Healer

BTW, the keys that I received with this case also work for the other case I have!  In regards to the seller who I purchase my first Sephora train case from, she finally responded and apologized.  She then said she would do what she could to find the strap and keys and send them to me free of charge.  I'm just glad she responded with a resolution.  I'm going to guess she lost it because its been a few days now since she last responded and said to give her 1-2 days to find it.  It's almost a lost cause with that one so I'm not hustling her at all for it.  Sellers should just pay more attention to what they package and to make sure they include everything mentioned in their descriptions. Just sayin'...

I've got 4 more packages on the way...

  • iPad case + Screen protectors
  • Suspender tights
  • Forever 21
  • GoJane
I'm just itching to try on all these outfits!  I'll be updating you all once they come in. Also, I'll be doing an update on a few of the many products I've been accumulating from the previous months so stay tuned ya'll!!!  Toodles for now!!!
