I was a mess Friday afternoon. The CEO had still not called me. And for some reason, I thought she would for sure call. I just had this overwhelming feeling. So when I left work, I felt so drained. I skipped the gym, went home, and cried. I was just mentally exhausted from worrying about it so much. I got home around 5 PM from work since I left a little early.
I was over life. I ended up leaving my home phone charger at my office so I decided to just leave my phone in the car and let it charge. I go inside and Marq and I sat in the living room and just talked. I needed to vent.
Around 5:45 I went out to my car to grab my phone. I noticed I had three emails, and wouldn't you believe one of them was from the CEO. She emailed me to ask a couple of questions and informally offer me the position. I replied and accepted, and she then called to let me know my formal offer would be emailed to me Monday. I'm really excited for this position. I'm a little bummed about the pay because she isn't starting me as high as I wanted, but it is still worth it because of how much I am going to learn from my CEO. Her company is the 12th fastest growing Real Estate firm in the US. She's has received tons of awards and she only started her company 7 years ago. Once I obtain my Real Estate license, things will be much different. I just need the patience and ensure being a hard worker is my foundation. Cheers to being a self efficient, self made woman!
After the realization set in that I did in fact get the job, Marq and I celebrated by planning my meals and work outs for the week, grocery shopping, picking up my favorite type of food - Greek (I ordered chicken kabobs, yum!) and catching up on "Impractical Jokers". Ha, how great right?
Saturday looked like this:
Up bright and early because our neighborhood community was having a big garage sale. Cars flooded our street! But before we could go to that, I needed to fuel up. I made this most delicious omelet; 3 egg whites, turkey sausage, fat free cottege cheese, and a hint of low fat mozzarella with a side of partially frozen peaches. Yum!
When I finally got back home, it was time to get ready for the evening. I played in my new Urban Decay Vice 2 eye shadow kit with a smokey blue eye. Since my eyes were dark, I paired it with a nude gloss.
I made the most delicious Cobb style spinach salad for dinner then Marq and I saw "Gravity". And wow what a movie. It was really good! It made me a little motion sick but it was an awesome movie. Sandra Bullock defines amazing and the movie keeps you on edge. It's worth a see. I also finally earned enough points for a free ticket! Yay!
Today I was up bright and early at 8 AM. I slept like crap last night. I went to bed at 2 AM and could not fall back asleep when I accidentally woke up at 8. When Marquis does his cardio in the morning upstairs during show prep, I can hear it through the ceiling so it wakes me up most mornings, ugh. I love his body and I love that he bodybuild's, but going through show prep will him is hard.
At noon I hit the gym. I was going to go to spin class, but instead I decided to do the Elliptical and Lateral machine for an hour of cardio. Kevin Hart helped me get through all of that cardio. "Alright, alright, alriiight", ha!
After I had lunch, it was time to get busy at the house: cleaning, prepping food for the week, and laundry. Below is this weeks meal plan:
- Meal 1: 3 egg white omelet with a piece of turkey sausage and fat free cottage cheese and a side of partially frozen strawberries.
- Meal 2: Quest Bar
- Meal 3: 2 Morning Star vegetarian chicken patties with a side of mixed vegetables, and a Fiber One brownie
- Meal 4: PB & J oatmeal (pre workout meal) 1/2 cup coats, 1 tablespoon of oatmeal, and blueberries
- Meal 5: GardenIn bean based vegetarian "meat" (I use a variety) with a side of kidney beans, squash, and not pictured my clean potato salad.
- Meal 6: Fiber One Protein Bar
Now I just got back from the for the grocery store and I'm about to start making a delicious Sunday dinner for Marq and I. He doesn't well this evening so I'm whipping up something extra delicious:
Tonight Chef Liz is grilling garlic Parmesan crusted steak, fruit and spinach salad, and rosemary olive oil artisan bread. Complete with a bottle of vino!
Tomorrow I am working until noon then Marquis and I are off to Raleigh for dinner and "America's Got Talent" live! We have second row seats, I am so excited!
