As of today I have 50 days until I see people I haven't seen in over 6 years and possibly meet someone I have never met in person but have talked to alot. I would like to be at the most 180 when I see them. This seems possible right? For normal people who diet and exercise this seems possible. That's 15 lbs in 50 days. That's just a little over 2 lbs a week. Granted.. I haven't been able to lose 1 lb a week but I have motivation. It's called a hotel with a swim pool and me in a swimsuit possibly in front of people who have not seen me in a swim suit either in 6 years or well.. ever. This is if I get the job and they don't mind me taking a week's vacation right after I start. The HR rep did ask about any summer vacation plans and I did tell her I already had this week planned. I figured it couldn't hurt to mention it just in case. Otherwise vacation is accrued as time goes on and I wouldn't get a vacation at all this year. Granted I could change my plans but then I wouldn't have motivation to lose 15 lbs in 50 days. Makes sense right?

Still no news on if I got the job but the interview seemed to go well. 4 people pointed at my resume and said "We need this here." I don't know if they meant they were short on paper or they liked the work that I'm currently doing at my current job. I'd like to think they meant my skills and knowledge but who can really tell?

Sorry I have been MIA lately. Between a crazy work schedule, stress of an interview, my little man turning 5, me feeling older, eating cake, and thinking.. it has to have butter in it.. that's HF.. just not LC. I have been about ready skip around like my 2 yr old because it seems fun and I need some fun. Writing when all you want to do is stick your head between your knees and hyperventilate isn't something I do. I watch 2 yr olds and wonder.. Can I get away with that and not be locked up in the nut farm?? Maybe if I skip walk people will just think I spiked my coffee.

Everyone repeat after me.. maybe if we chant this I will listen to it and not do it. "I will not stress eat. I will not hyperventilate. I will not crawl under my desk and suck my thumb.. or crawl under my desk with a bag of Fritos. I will not stress eat." Ok I will probably hyperventilate. That part might be inevitable.

A couple weeks ago I ran into one of the upper management guys at my old company. He asked me if I would come back for a senior position. At first I said no. I'm happy where I am. Then my current job imploded. I still have a job. I have 4 actually. I am expected to do 4 jobs, make other people "look good" for the sake of making them look good, I'm supposed to do my original job, and become a narrator, and then... The person I'm supposed to make "look good" came into my office and demanded I say something I didn't believe was true. Literally stood in my desk and yelled and repeated what she wanted me to say. I just sat there and watched her. I'm sorry.. I'm a minion but I'm not a puppet. I submitted my resume to the old company the next day.

The good news is.. they called me within a day and did a phone interview and then set up a 4 hour onsite interview a week later. Looking good so far right?

This morning she sent me the itinerary. I'm meeting with 5 people for about 45 minutes each. I know all of them already. I've already worked with them and I know I've impressed all but 1 of them. That 1 person being my previous boss who supposedly retired. Apparently she is retiring. Not retired. Retiring. Do you think she still hates me for that day that I quit while she was in the middle of her European vacation and then the next day the only other writer quit too? Or do you think she still hates me for calling her the worst manager in the history of managers in my exit interview?

Tomorrow should be very very interesting. If you never hear from me again then the manager killed me and stuffed my body into the recycling bin. All I can do is keep telling myself that if I get this job the increase in pay that should go with it will get me that much closer to other things I want in life. Like a cabin in the middle of no where away from people who want to kill me.

Day 10.. I feel like I should start using Captains log then go into a star trek rant. Why? Well because I'm nuts.

You realize you are most likely nuts when you take a picture, find cellulite you didn't know existed in places you can't see, and then proceed to take more pictures to see more cellulite you didn't know existed. I don't recommend this to anyone. It's better to not know. The delusion that everything you can't see is just fine is a good delusional to have. Once it's gone you find yourself taking pictures at weird angles that makes the dog bury his head into dog bed because even he can't watch.

Yesterday was a good day with food and exercise. It was a freaking mess when it came to anything else. I didn't finish my workout until 11pm because my mind decided to go down a rabbit hole. Rabbit holes are not a warm and cozy as one would think.

Today I'm googling low carb alcohol.
