Ugh! Got an email today that we will be having overdue employee annual valuations the first week of May. I never feel like these are productive and the last one we had (3 years ago) was extremely stressful as I had taken on all the work of an employee who left and never received a raise. When I asked for one, I was asked why and when I answered with the extra duties I took on I was told work is work. I fought for a raise and ended up getting one, but only about 2% of what I asked for. Usually get a cost of living raise, but the only raises above that I've had to ask for as we don't get anything for performance, which sucks and doesn't motivate me to do more. In the last valuation, they said they'd like for me to become a manager. . . we have 5 employees and 2 partners that are here full time. . who will I manage? I started taking classes to get my QKA certification (which no one else here has), but haven't completed them. Guess I need to get on that. My goal is to take the 3rd test this year. I haven't gotten very far with studying as right now my attitude is why. I passed the first 2 exams and received my ASPPA RPS certificate and got a Congratulations! email. I've had a bad attitude here for the last year and I'll probably have to hear about that. I was really disappointed to get a 2% raise in January. . not even cost of living! I've been here 17 years and have gotten too comfortable to look for something else, maybe I should look though.
Glad I got that rant out :)

TOM is here and the migraines, aches, pains, and overall sick feeling are very frustrating! Didn't really have this problem until about 6 months ago. Now a couple days before and the first day of I feel horrible. It's hell getting old!

However, the sun is shining and it looks so nice out. Hoping to get a walk in at lunch today!

I'm undecided on this. . . .My MIL is putting together a team for the next session of Lose 2 Win at the hospital. Hubby and I did this a year ago with a different team that flaked on us, we finished in the top 10 rest of team did not. I know my MIL will be dedicated to this, I think hubby is going to do it. . .I can't decide if I will. I think it will hold me accountable, especially with us doing it together. I guess my fear or drawback is that when the session is over I will do what I did last time, which was eat every bad thing I had been denying myself and gain 7 lbs back in 3 weeks after I had lost 17. I really need my mindset to be that this is a life change forever, not just during the session. Maybe I should do a cheat day every week or 2 rather than no cheat days at all? Or not really cheat days, but if you have a high calorie lunch have a salad for supper or vise versa. This needs to be a life change, not a diet! (I wanted to put that in all caps and yell it at myself :)

Have a good one!
