Who let me decide to try this whole responsible-running-take-care-of-your-body thing? Oh that’s right- me. It stinks!
Ok, not really, it’s a good thing. You can probably guess that I decided to give it at least another day before trying to run. Which was really hard because it’s been along time since I’ve seen this:
So the pool it was.
BUT there was a water aerobics class going on and it had already started. No lap swimming allowed 😦
I lifted weights instead. Tomorrow’s another day.
I snacked on some Wheat Thins and Laughing Cow Light Garlic and Herb Cheese.
Then I got caught up in studying and before I knew it, it was time for me to run out the door.
I completely ran out of time for dinner! Since I knew I wouldn’t be home til after 8, I grabbed a Luna bar on my way out.
When I got home I ate the only real food I could find. No wonder the husband cried when I didn’t cook him dinner—there’s literally nothing here!! Grocery store ASAP!!
Wow, what a bad blogger dinner. I’ll do better tomorrow, promise 🙂
Anyways, tonight I attended a leadership training session called “Accelerating Your Personal Brand”. I thought it sounded informative and useful- kind of like having your “elevator speech” ready.
Boy was I wrong.
It was literally about your personal brand- as in what you wear. Gahhh! (I should mention here I threw on a zipup hoodie and scarf as I walked out the door….) Most of the “rules” mentioned were about dressing in a corporate workplace, and were slightly obvious. Don’t show your cleavage, wear stockings if you show too much leg, don’t be too casual on casual Friday. I definitely do not work in corporate America.
It basically felt like a
bad sales pitch, although if I was loaded I might have been more interested (you could have someone go through your closet for $400…I doubt I have $400 dollars worth of clothes in there…ok wait, I already showed you my workout clothes collection….)
You could get a personal image consultation too, where someone would tell you what clothes work best for you, if your hair is the right length for your face, if your makeup looks good, etc etc. I do think that’d be kind of cool, but I can pretty much figure out what they’d say without paying—I’m a bum 🙂 (I could probably use a few pointers…..haha)
I did learn an interesting fact:
It takes all of 30 seconds for someone to form a first impression.
If that 1st impression isn’t good, it takes 10 more meetings to change.
I appreciated the take home message of presenting yourself well, but well, that was about it.
So, what’s your best piece of fashion advice?!
