Do not get mad at me!!!

Nothing will drive me nuts faster than people who cannot speak English getting mad at me because they can't understand what I'm trying to tell them. I work in the insurance industry. A good portion of our clients do not speak English or at least can't speak it very well. Insurance is confusing enough without adding a language barrier. Today a couple came in speaking little to no English and I didn't understand what they were wanting. I did the best I could and then told them they needed to come in and speak to our afternoon assistant. They were ticked at me and if I didn't value my job I would have gone off. I'm fed up with this crap!!! I know...I can't do much about it but it's just annoying as hell to get dirty looks because I can't speak Spanish. No matter where you go....this happens. It's getting out of hand and I just wonder when people are going to say "Enough is enough!!!" and something that is equivalent to the Civi…

Ok...here is the plan...

I need to get rid of the muffin top and attempt to get a butt. Mindy sent me some suggestions on exercises too achieve those goals. Once the holidays are past...I will measure myself and put my plan into action. The hard part for me is the eating right. My diet sucks. It's not that I eat a lot of food. I just don't eat at all. I'm sitting here trying to think of when I eat and I can't come up with any specific meal. It varies. No...I don't eat 3 meals a day. I know...bad Tracey. If I were to eat 3 small meals a day AND exercise...I would be in better shape than I am in. I work just down the hall from Curves and if I could afford it...I would be there every other day. I know that exercising would put me in an amazing frame of mind...not that I'm cranky all the time but I remember that when I did exercise...I had more energy.

Ok...I have my plan...now I need the motivation. What can I use to movitate myself to get off of my flat butt (which is part o…

No more muffins!!!

I am in a wedding come October 2007. I am the maid of honor. I am to wear a beautiful blue dress. I have yet to find that dress. All of the dresses I see...STRAPLESS!!! Hello...I'm old. I do not show my shoulders at all and look sexy at the same time. I need to find a sexy yet cover my flaws kind of dress. I also have realized...my muffin top has got to go. You know what muffin tops are....that little bit of flabby that pokes over your waist band. I hate my muffin top. It so totally needs to go away. I would also be quite happy with getting rid of my hips. I have a decent figure....from the neck to just above my waist. My legs aren't too bad either. It's that abdominal area and my lack of hiney that drives me nuts.

So here is my question...what type of exercises can I do....low impact...that will whittle down my hips and make the muffin top go away? I need to look good for this wedding. I won't outshine the bride but a close second will do. :)

Changes...

Wow...change to beta and everything gets fouled up. Ah well...I guess it was time to move past the Phantom. Well...at least for awhile. ;) Pink IS my favorite color so this one will have to do for now. I really need to get back to this blog. I think I left it because someone was reading it and I didn't want her knowing much about my life. But...I do have a blog on myspace so if she wanted to read about me...she could find me there.

So...I'm coming back to my REAL blog. I'll still post on myspace but I'm still partial to this one. It's just me...:)

Tiggers are tiggeriffic...:)

I want to thank Tigger for introducing me to the dailyOM. I absolutely love the emails I get everyday from them. Most have some bearing on my life and how to view things around me. My life was so fouled up and fouled up for a very long time. After purging a lot of things out of my life...namely friends who were toxic to my mental health and well being...things are amazing now. I've found that I do not "need" to allow people to treat my like crap...just so I could have friends. I did that with a few people and I was miserable. I completely short changed myself in so many areas of my life. Men and friends being the main ones.

I'm not saying my life is perfect now. Gosh no. Far from it. What I can say is that I've found my boundries and I know when to put my foot down and say "I will not tolerate the way you are treating me". Some people from my past have not been too pleased with my new outlook and how I will accept treatment from others and they want noth…
