Job Hunting and Back to School

I haven't been working out as hard as I was last month.  I've had a lot of energy and have been getting around to projects and cleaning that I never seemed to get around to before and that has been sucking up a lot of my spare time.  I think however that I'm likely burning a similar amount of calories since I'm up off my butt for the majority of the day.

I have a job interview on Wednesday, I have no idea what I'm going to wear.  I've never had a job interview that I was nervous to go to but then I've never gone to a job interview this "large".  I'm hopeful but not going to let it crush me if I get passed over.

Back to school was last week and things are starting to settle into a routine.  It has been crazy getting my body back on a 7am-10pm schedule.  Around 4 I hit this wall and want to crash but I force myself to keep going and then come bed time I don't want to go to bed, however I have been getting "good" sleep.  That is something I haven't been able to say in a long while. 

My goals for the rest of September :

1) Get 30 minutes of intentional, dedicated exercise everyday.
2) Keep my Diet Coke habits in check.
3) Lose 10 more lbs by the end of the month.

That's it.  Seem's simple enough.  I can do this!


Week 8 : 26.2 lbs down, 153.8 lbs to go
Current Weight : 298.8 lbs
Start Weight : 327 lbs
Goal Weight : 145 lbs


  1. Hi Kate! I have a few tips if your interested. Prepare yourself very well. There is usually typical question they ask in interview on which you can prepare answers. IE : your streghts, weeknesses, accomplishments, why they should pick you, talking about past work experience, etc. Don't forget to gather as much as information you can on the company. The more you know about it, the better it is as it shows you're interested not only in earning money, but in the company itself, their goals/mission/vision. Also don't forget to talk as I, You and Us together. That's what I did with the last job interview I had and I did end up getting the job. Visualize yourself having the job! You know you want it. It's so much stress! Keep me posted. Good luck!
