For me the answer is simple.  Girl scout Cookies...lol

 

But seriously.  I feel this.  I need to be better.

I think my problem this last week is just a lack of planning (see anxiety about meal planning above...). Something I can and need to improve. I have a plan for today and I'm going to try and get the rest of the week figured out over lunch so I can do grocery shopping after work (well after kickboxing after work)

 

Edit: But Girl Scout cookies!! I haven't gotten any yet but I won't be able to resist the temptation when Boss brings them in from her daughter's troop

Sunday

 

Exercise - I went to the gym for lifting in the morning. I recorded some of my lifts to check my form. Apparently when I reset after each deadlift it manifest as a butt wiggle not unlike a playful kitten :) I also let my shoulders slump at the top of the lift which is probably no bueno. It was a good session and I ended up with the place to myself the entire time

 

Food- I started out really good. Had my normal breakfast and a reasonable amount of lasagna for lunch, skipping the bread sticks. We had a couple of people over for a game night and I decided to make a quick run to the store for snacks for them and more salad for me. Well....then I ended up eating a ton of chips with bean dip, lemon Oreos, and Pringles and no salad. Not how that should have gone at all. Meal planning needs to happen so I quit eating like this

Week 3 Wrapup

 

Exercise - I'm not gonna call it 100% I went kickboxing 3 times and lifted once. I did 1 round out of three planned of a core workout and decided to give up on that part of my goal. 

 

Food - I did great 3 days, okay 1 day and crappy 3 days. I blame 75% of it on not planning. This week will be better

Monday

 

Exercise - Kickboxing right after work. Nuff said

 

Food - Back on track and meal planning mostly done. Normal breakfast, leftovers for lunch and pasta and salad for dinner. Was right at my increased calorie goal. I planned food for Wednesday-Friday and bought groceries for it. I still need to figure out what we're doing before the movie tonight. It's probably either HuHot or Olive Garden but I'm honestly not super excited about either. I'd almost rather get Chipotle...

Holy shit you guys....Kevin quit! Mr Incompetent, who is part of the reason I left my last job that I figured would never leave of his own free will since no one would pay him what he's making there. His last day is this week. That makes life harder for Boss Lady who is the primary reason I left, but unfortunately makes things much harder for Trevor who is the only person I felt bad for leaving. Hopefully this doesn't guilt him into staying.... I need to have dinner with him some time....

The incompetent rarely know they are incompetent.  He may think he is worth more. :D  Hopefully if Trevor does stay, this makes his life easier in the long run because they will have to hire someone new who is bound to be better at the job.

 

Wait... this means Kevin is loose on the world? He can show up anywhere at any time? Dear lord...

Near the end he seemed to start grasping the fact that he's incompetent, though not the extent of it. I just meant that old job pays very well and even if he were competent he would be hard pressed to find something that paid more. I took a paycut when I left which I could afford but he's dug himself in such a deep financial hole he can't afford to make less.

 

Considering they still haven't replaced me (put in my notice early August, last day was end of September) I wouldn't put any faith in things getting easier for Trevor. Especially since Boss Lady would be picking the replacements and I have lost all respect for her judgement.

I almost laughed out loud at my desk. Luckily for me, even though I live in a small city I rarely run intowork people outside of work. And I'm guessing he's staying here so little chance of you running into his incompetence :D

Well, I kinda fell off for a bit there. I stuck with my exercise goal, and food hasn't been what I want but it hasn't been a total train wreck either. I have some plans for going forward but they may have to be adapted as tax season is about to kick in full swing. New challenge may go up over lunch
