Impromptu challenges

On Monday, I randomly decided to try intermittent fasting. Stop eating by 8pm, restart again at noon the next day. It was easy as I was working Monday thru Wednesday night. Thursday however … I decided to grab a bite with a friend, which ended up being much later than I would have liked. And just like that intermittent fasting is over for me. lol

While I was intermittently fasting, I was also having a few no spend days. Yeah me! But again once the fasting fell off, so did the no spending.

I bought the Samsung S8. After putting feelers out, I was given a price that was about 45% cheaper than what I had seen in the stores. I debated it for about 12 minutes. I was tired of running out of storage space. So I am now the proud owner of a new phone. The camera is fantastic and I will be taking a ton of pictures moving forward. Especially when I hit the west coast next week. 🙂 There is a bit of a learning curve and a search for a few favourite features. I did lose the ability to give personalized message tones but I’ll get over it.

I accepted my fate for a minute and bought 2 pairs of pants in a larger size. I am tired of being uncomfortable. But not tired enough to consistently commit to a diet and/or exercise program. When I return from vacation, I will be getting back on board. I am still doing some exercise but it’s more maintain than create change. I put My Fitness Pal on my new phone and will start tracking everything this week so I can get back into the habit. It will probably be very discouraging to see my lack of progress.

Wednesday, I am meeting with my financial institution to finalize the renewal of my mortgage. I am glad to get this resolved before going away.

Got my schedule for the PT job for this week and was surprised to see that I am on the schedule on Saturday. That will be hard to do when I am not in the country. I think that when I asked for the time off, someone confused June with July as I had an unexpected week off last month. Hopefully no one will be calling me when I am off to ask where I am.

I am counting down to my trip. I am in need of a change of scenery and some down time. My cousin has my whole trip planned out and I am looking forward to doing new things and the food. I have already sent her a long list of places I want to go to. I tried to get her to commit to driving me to the nearest In N Out Burger, 5 hours away but she does not seem game.
