In the words of Donald're fired.

I got let go from my bartending job yesterday. I am super bummed because I'm being accused of something I did not do. Did I get to explain myself? No. You know what's awesome? They wrote it on a note and attached it to my check (which was shorted seven hours btw).

I'm trying to look at this as a blessing in disguise. It will suck not having the extra money, but I'm the type of person where the more I make the more I spend. Also working two jobs and late nights during the week have worn on me some. Tuesday nights I'd be lucky to get three hours of sleep and then go to my main job all day. So now I will have more time/energy to work out and I wont be tempted by free bar food.

The last month has taken a toll on me. I haven't exercised, I had fast food twice, and I started drinking soda again. While bartending was for extra/fun money, it was really helping me pay down my debt. I can't decide if I should find something else or chill out for awhile. My main job has been stressful, its Christmas time, and personal things with friends and such had a speed bump.

I was driving the other day and I could feel my stomach sitting on my legs. I have a feeling that I am destined to be overweight. I know how to lose weight, but I'm having a hard to commmitting to it. I thought about joining WW again, but with me losing my job there is no wsy. They say everything happens for a reason, so I'd like to know why I've been shit on the past few weeks. I know people are in a worse situation than me, but still, I hate feeling like crap and moody.

But somehow I'm down to 183 when I was at 185 last week. So thats cool, right?


  1. Sorry about your job Jami. That totally bites and I think that is super low how they fired you with a note. What a bunch of jerks. I know if you decided to look for another job you'll find a better one. One that makes it even more worth it for you. Hang in there.

  2. I'm sorry you're having such a rough time lately. Stay positive though, and try to remember what is most important to you. Use your time off to get pumped back up to lose weight. You can do it! You're awesome!

  3. i feel the same about destined to be fat. blah. that work situation is crappy. at least youre not working for such idiot wusses anymore.

    like you said...more time to work out now!

  4. Thanks girls...this is a hard time of year for me every year, especially with my seasonal affective disorder. I plan on getting back into a gym routine because when I look better I feel better.
