caution: confident girl ahead

Wednesday, February 03, 2010

Today at school we had mock interviews. HR managers and VP's and recruiters from Kaiser and other companies came and interviewed us all just so we would get the practice once we graduate from school. So all of us students were waiting in our room and every was talking about how nervous they were and fidgiting. One of the girls looked at me and goes "look at mackenzie she doesnt look scared at all." Truth? Little nervous but I have something now that I didnt have before. CONFIDENCE. I knew that I looked great, I knew my resume showed great prior work experience...not in the field but I was a daycare teacher and preschool teacher and those arent just "some" job. I knew what I was going to talk about and worse comes to worse they dont like me. Well what happened? The lady looked at me and says "i have no criticism I can give you, You dont seem nervous in fact you seem more confident than I am right now and I am the one GIVING the interview." I got a perfect score AND the lady gave me her card and told me to call her once I graduate! I am noticing my confidence not only with work but even in this new relationship with the boy. First date is of course nerving but I went into thinking "if he doesnt like me, its his loss and somebody else WILL like me". I continue to keep that in my mind even now (since hes still ON THE MARKET lol). Losing weight is so much more than just looking good. I have confidence like I said, that i didnt have even a year ago. I feel SO great.

Went running once I got home and while i was running my ipod ran out of batteries (YIKES) and my foot started hurting but I got 45 minutes of running in!!! Yay!

p.s. you all are a crack up with your comments about the boy!

    I think your confidence is rubbing off on me. I read your blogs and think of all the things that I am doing to better myself as well, and you are right, it is so much more than weight loss. WOO!!!

    I really love watching you blossom! It's pretty cool - I'm feeling big sisterly and kind of motherly - although I don't like the fact that I could technically have a 25 year old daughter because that would mean I had a child at 15 - YIKES!

    Weight loss + exercise really do springboard into a healthy lifestyle and all these positive changes have a way of making every part of your life better! I'm so glad you are feeling this confidence and getting the reward of all your hard work :)
