Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

What’s new

Well the interview at my friend’s workplace has not happened. I responded to the email from HR with my availability and never heard back. I even sent a follow up email and radio silence.

My friend thinks it’s rude and strange and has recruited her supervisor to investigate. Maybe my responses are going into her spam? I don’t know.

Work is still crazy. But I did manage to get a few hours uninterrupted the other day. It’s amazing how people will leave you alone if you stab a bagel with a butter knife. LOL Ok that makes it sound more intense than it was. But basically the butter knife would not cut it so I had a minor temper tantrum. Since I am always easy going this was alarming to most. So they stayed out of my way. ūüôā I got a lot done. I might want to try it again in a few weeks.

I hurt my back working out yesterday. It feels like someone stabbed me just under¬†my left shoulder. It hurts to breathe deeply. It is better today but still not in the clear. I am still working out though. Only walking, gentle walking as I can’t really raise my left arm too much. And I don’t want to get out of breath.

Since my weight loss is stagnant, I have decided to give up land animals and gluten for Lent, which starts on Wednesday. While I am not Catholic, I have in the past given up land animals for Lent and lost some weight because of it.

I am looking into vegetarian recipes, so if you have any that aren’t too complicated or have Tofu in it please send them my way. I will still be eating fish and diary as I need “easy” protein sources until I get into the swing of things.

Once Easter has passed, I will do a cleanse and most likely return to my meat eating ways. I hope to be more plant based though.

 

The tides are turning

After posting my rather not so happy last post, life has turned just a bit.  I have had 3 interviews with a second interview with one of the companies on Monday.  Fingers crossed it pans out as I am feeling a bit uneasy about taking so much time away from work. I am feeling hopefully and much more determined to leave.

Yesterday my body betrayed me and my hip is protesting loudly. ¬†I wish I could tell you that I worked out and that’s how I hurt it but I did not. ¬†I can’t even pinpoint what I did to make it hurt. ¬†I got up this morning and stretched but it doesn’t feel any better.

On Thursday (yes I am all over the place in this post but it’s entertaining so go with it), my car started producing this awful burning chemical smell. ¬†I took it to the mechanic after work yesterday and of course the smell was gone. ¬†But I knew something was not right and insisted they look it over. ¬†Turns out it’s my brake lines. ¬†Sounds rather important no? ¬†It is now fixed and available to me to pick up. ¬†It is a 20 minute walk away.

Given my hip issues am I nuts to consider walking?
