August 7th

Cons of this economy and not being able to find full-time work:

  1. No Health Insurance
  2. No Vacation Time
  3. Being paid a part-time wage & not being able to afford to live on my own, therefore I have to live with Grandma. I AM SO COOL.

Pros of working part-time: 

  1. I don’t work on Tuesdays so I get to take my dog on a nice morning walk. We had a good time and walked 50 minutes on a trail that is not to far from my house earning me 9 Activity Points! 

After our morning walk I went to Jamba Juice for breakfast and got annoyed by the girl taking my order. Feel free to comment on this post to tell me if I am a total brat or you would feel put off by this too. Here was the conversation:

Me: Good Morning, I would like the Original Size Berry Banana Light Smoothie with the daily vitamin boost. 

Employee: “Ok! Sounds Great! And what meal would you like today?”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Employee: “Go ahead and pick a meal and we will ring that right up for you.”

Me: “I don’t want any food, thank you” 

Employee: “Okkkk….wellllll….you can get a shot of our new energy booster juice. Pick the flavor you want. We have orange and acai, which one would you like today?!” 

Me: “Is this extra?” 

Employee: “Yes, one dollar.” 

Me: “No thank you.” 

Employee: “So all you want is the original berry banana smoothie?” 

Me: “Yup.” 

Now I realize that everyone has their own way of doing a sales pitch or “selling up” or doing whatever you need to do to sell more product but I really did not like this girl’s approach. She basically was telling me what I wanted or assumed I needed extra things on my order to make the sale bigger.

I ALSO REALIZE that this actually works on a lot of people so I get why she was doing it but it didn’t stop me from wanting to slap a ho. I watched her do the same sales pitch to about four people and it threw them off so much that they would just order the dollar shot or whatever else it was that she was pressuring them to buy because the interaction was so incredibly awkward that I could tell no one wanted to question her or say no. It almost felt like border line abusive up-selling hahaha. Maybe I’m the one with the problem. It’s probably because I don’t like when people tell me what I need or what I want. Ok, you don’t have to comment. I realize I am a brat.

Original Size Jamba Juice Berry Banana Smoothie sans food items that annoying girl was offering that I didn’t want any part of: 6 points 

1 egg white= 0 points

More activities I plan on doing for the day

  1. Wash my car = +1 point 
  2. Wash my dog= 0 points haha
  3. Clean the house= vacuum, laundry etc. = +4 points for 50 minutes
  4. Swimming = +4 points 

I will post later as the day progresses and I have more to talk about in terms of food, exercise and life-what nots. Have a wonderful day everyone! 



About FunnyGirlweightloss

Hey You! Welcome to my blog, I am happy you stopped by and I hope my struggles make you laugh a little bit....wait, what?....Anywho, this is my weight loss blog where I will be 100% honest and real about my struggles in losing some weight and more importantly, keeping it off. Most people that know me say I am funny (hence, the title of this blog) so I guess the twist is the fact that I am going to be completely candid about how much losing weight can be really tough/hard/awful/daunting/boring, yet eventually amazing and totally worthwhile. Hopefully through my vulnerability and candidness, I help inspire others to lose some weight and stay motivated.
