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. 🙂 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.
