RES: Always CUTE


RES

Recommended Posts

 

During the last challenge we were informed that the working every weekend would come to an end in October, we were also given some time off during the week as well as days to work from home...I'm still looking for a job, and considering starting my own bookkeeping business, but I can wait right now instead of feeling the need to jump ship so urgently...I also have vacation time coming up at the end of October (since the cruise was canceled we're looking at going to visit the grand-baby and seeing NOLA on the way back) as well as a potential bonus that I really feel like I earned!

(as of 9/4/20 I am awaiting word to hear if I do in fact have a new job, if this is the case then I will be seeing if I can bring them (grand-baby and her parents) here, and go to NOLA for a weekend instead since I won't get vacation time. I was told the job I wanted was putting an offer together for me, since it's been over a month I'm not going to count on this until I have said offer in hand)

 

I'm over 1/2 way through with my weight training program, I feel like it's doing some good...kind of off track with Cardio but I'll get back to it. No change in the scale but that's not my focus right now, it will happen, or not...I know I feel better when I work out, I sleep better, and life isn't kicking my ass quite as much!

 

The Plan....

Conscientious: Make 24 hour plan, eat on plan when hungry, stop when full.

Unconventional: Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here (at least one item from two "lists")

Time: Get 7 hours of sleep a night, post at least 3 times a week in my thread.

Exercise: Weights 3x week, 6,000 steps a day, 3 days treadmill workout (when no work event)

 

I also have 4 "to-do" lists encompassing different areas of what is my life:

To-do to start own business

To-do general (things that need to be done that I don't want to forget)

To-do personal (includes things like re-staining the cabinet I use as an altar, etc...)

To-do work (includes things I need to do before leaving my current job, which could be in two weeks or two years LOL)

Ideally I'd like to complete one thing from each list each week, I'll take completing one thing from two lists each week (and yes, I do have actual lists saved in Google Keep...I know what works for me :lol: )

No new riding pictures yet, Florida weather has not been cooperating at ALL! Hopefully that will change soon.

Are you riding all the way there and back again?

Please say yes

to NOLA?

ummmmm...that's like a 6 hour drive in a car, I'm good for about 4 before my backside is read to call it a day. 

Have a ride planned to Ormond Beach this weekend, hope the weather cooperates, I'll have pictures if so :D

Awww, thanks everyone! glad to have you along for the ride :D

Yesterday's event was good, glad to have today and tomorrow off...I may have to go in tomorrow if I can't get my remote connection to work though, I'm speculating that the boss told the IT company to shut everything off so I wouldn't remote in and work (he's threatened that before because I have a habit of working when I'm supposed to be off, or on vacation...)

I ended up contacting IT...I'm embarrassed to say it only took restarting my laptop to get it working again. Normally that would be the first thing I tried so not sure why I didn't this time...was not my finest hour

 

So the ride yesterday was canceled, D had a friend coming down from GA to join us and was already in FL by the time it was called though, so we met up with her and managed to get a short ride in

Was a very good day :D

 

 

The Plan....Week 0

Conscientious: Make 24 hour plan, eat on plan when hungry, stop when full. 6/7, overdid it one night

Unconventional: Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here (at least one item from two "lists") Rode yesterday, worked on list items 4 days, got nails done and hair cut :D

Time: Get 7 hours of sleep a night, post at least 3 times a week in my thread. 4/7 sleep 2/3 posting

Exercise: Weights 3x week, 6,000 steps a day, 3 days treadmill workout (when no work event) 2/3 weights 0 days steps, 0/3 days treadmill (1 work event)

 

Still no word regarding the other job, trying to research what it would take to start my own virtual bookkeeping business but finding consistent information online is difficult. Do I need a business license, do I not? Could I be considered an independent contractor? Lots of variables to consider.

Have a call with our CFO tomorrow morning regarding FYE, maybe I'll get some answers on what I'm supposed to be doing currently! That would be nice.

I have an IT guy in my life where he has forever to do this once in awhile.... with the crazy world it's just how it goes.

 

Glad you had a good day off and are still staying pretty consistent with your goals. 

 

Hope clearer information can come for the business. 

 

Do you do anything special for getting your nails done?

Do it, open your own business! Its sooo rewarding to work for yourself! Much more to do - sure, but whenever I am self employed my motivation goes waaaaaay up!! Have a brilliant week and let us know how you are! :)

Thank you...no way I would do it without it at least replacing my income, but I'm working towards it!

Thank you, good to know I'm not the only one!

Nothing special, my nail tech picks the color and we just generally have a good time while we do them...it's one of my two concessions to vanity that I treat myself to :D  We did red sparkly polish this time 

 

No cardio yet this week, probably won't be either...I can take my time on the strength training but all the tropical activity has me very flared up. Chronic pain is not for the faint of heart, wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy but really wish I didn't have to deal with it right now myself

For my american friends...If you've never had your rights determined by a Supreme Court decision be thankful.

My heart is broken and I'm terrified of what the future holds right now. 

 

The Plan....Week 1

Conscientious: Make 24 hour plan, eat on plan when hungry, stop when full. 7/7

Unconventional: Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here (at least one item from two "lists") 7/7 Worked on list items

Time: Get 7 hours of sleep a night, post at least 3 times a week in my thread. 7/7 sleep 3/3 posting

Exercise: Weights 3x week, 6,000 steps a day, 3 days treadmill workout (when no work event) 2/3 weights 0 days steps, 0/3 days treadmill (1 work event)

 

The tropical activity has me in a lot of pain right now, my joints are inflamed and moving is pretty painful, I thought I was starting to have an RA flair up. No ridding is going to happen this weekend, I believe we've had rain for 20 or 30 plus days in a row now, I'm so over it! We need a way to send this to the west coast :(

Hope the chronic pain subsides a bit, is never fun!!

 

Also been personally educating myself about RBG, I realized I lived in a world with her in it to help out.

Thank you, it got better when the weather did :)

I remember when she was sworn in, was in my 20's actually...was nice to finally have something besides old men on there.

Very surprising 🙃

 

Here to show support.  I know it's like, every single election people say this but this is going to be super important.

Honestly, first time I've had red in over a year ;) 

Yes it is! I've actually signed up to be a poll worker...hopefully I'll be able to do it!

Because I finally got the offer letter from the Dental office, my first day is 10/12/20...tomorrow I get the not fun job of turning in my notice (I hate quitting jobs, never fun for me) and seeing if they want me to stay on as an independent contractor. 

Stay tuned, it's only going to get more exciting from here!
