Interview and a Workout.

Well today was my interview with the CEO.  Can we just say my brain fell out of my butt somewhere between the lobby and his office?  He kept trying to joke around with me, and even when I knew he was joking- I kept staring at him like I didn't have a brain.  BECAUSE I DIDN'T; I knew he was joking- but NOTHING witty was coming to mind to retort back.  NOTHING.  My brain literally shut down on me.  I was so nervous to meet with him that I think my brain just freaked out.  He would say, "that's a joke honey" (he didn't really call me honey- he used my real name) and I would laugh and say, "yep- you caught me.  I'm completely speechless.  Still can't think of a witty comeback."  After 2 or 3 attempts to joke around with me- I think he finally just determined that I am slow and gave up.

The thing is I'm not slow though!  Not normally.  Just today- because I was so nervous and excited.  Craig- my main contact that has brought me in 4 or 5 times now- was in the interview with us.  These people are so great.  They explained to me that they don't normally bring someone in over and over again to meet everyone on the team without hiring them first- but they really like me and are trying to determine where I'd be the most happiest. Seriously?  I could not believe it.  In every interview I have ever gone to- they want YOU to fit the position- not the position fit you and your goals.  It is just another testament to me that this is absolutely the right move for me to make.  Besides my lack of ability to joke around with the CEO- I felt like the interview was really great and I left feeling so good about things.  Craig walked me out and told me he was so excited to start working with me because he could tell that I was passionate about my work and this industry and that we mesh really well and he thinks we'd be an unstoppable team.  Seriously?  You're going to make me cry now, thanks.  It seriously made me feel so good- I haven't had such positive feedback since I quit my former job years ago.  I can NOT wait for that freaking phone call! (he said he would call me by the end of this week)

I am dreading my workouts today.  Evil Aunt Flo is here.  Really?  Get lost.  Plus my body is getting more and more fatigued by the day because I am not used to working out so hard day in and day out.  I don't even have time to recuperate until another workout blasts me.  But my little workout buddy is on a high and keeps calling me skinny B and I can't let her down this early on in the game.

It's been one week since Ash Wed started and I feel like I need a diet coke or some sugar.  But I will persevere!  No soda or sugar for me!  Plus it would probably only make my workout that much harder.

Can someone please step in and pretend to be me for the next workout tonight at 6 so I can take a nap instead?  Thanks-



  1. Oooo, oooo, pick me, pick me! :D I'll pretend to be you. :D ahhahaa would that be a hoot or what? lol

    I'm glad this job is turning out so well! You're due for a magnificent turn of events! :D


  2. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you with this new job. It sounds as if you are in like Flint. I hope that is the case and you love it, love it, love it.

    Sorry I can't step in and do your workout for you. But I can and will take a nap for you.

    Okay, that was just evil.


  3. Fingers crossed! It sounds like a great opportunity.

    I bet you were wittier than you think!

  4. Wow, I am so thrilled for you! I can't wait for the end of the week when you post to tell us you start next week!I would love to step in for you on your workout, but thats one heck of a commute!

  5. I'm sure it wasn't as bad as you think. I hope you hear something soon.

  6. Aw, Diz, this is great news! I can't wait to hear more! I love that you're pushing yourself with the workouts. You won't regret it, and I can't wait to hear about what it does for you!


  7. Now i am on pins waiting for him to call you! I am so excited! This is going to be great. And I can imagine the workouts are intense and the short recovery is horrid but you are forcing your body to be strong. as strong as you ARE! and I know that your exhausted but you can do this. Diet coke and sugar needs to piss off. You don't need that. Its like crack. It makes you feel good for a little bit but its gonna leave you craving more and feeling like shit when it wears off. Your better than your addiction.

  8. I'm so excited for you! Pre-emptively, of course, but still... :)

    And yeah, I hear ya on AF. Mine's gone bonkers, and now I have like 10 days a month when I'm not retaining the volume of a lake in water.


  9. Go Kill it woman!! I am sticking to my plan too. =)

    Your new job sounds like they would be wonderful to work for. Do you need an assistant? I am so ready to change it up.

  10. Me and you are in the same boat. This is week 2 of me being really focused on exercising and I'm just DRAGGING. Each day I'm more and more tired. I feel like if I take a "recovery" day, I'll get off track.
