RES: CUTE 2021 Part II


Recommended Posts

Ivy.jpg

 

To continue with the acronym…

Those that have been following for a while know that in 2019 I was doing really good hitting my goals, so I went back to see what I was doing then that was working so well. I've been more lax this  year on the food aspect (thanks Covid) With D cooking her fair share making a detailed plan is a little more difficult, but that's only one meal a day every other week so it shouldn't derail me as much as I've been letting it. Making sure I stop eating when I'm supposed to is the biggest challenge with food, since what I eat is generally good.

 

I'm doing better at making sure my workouts happen,  I have a treadmill and workout equipment at home, there is no good reason for this not to be a priority, until I feel comfortable going to the gym again. (I live in FL, my governor is an idiot, this will probably not happen soon) Reminding myself how good I feel and not letting my brain make excuses are helping...my much needed motivation is I have a birthday cruise to prepare for and I need to be in shape for season. Running around a ballpark is probably not going to be easy with a mask on, so cardio is important!

 

The Plan...

Cardio - Three interval runs/bicycle rides/HITT Workout, and one strength training a week. 

Update - Post in thread three times a week.

Track - Sleep (at least 7 hours a night) Food (eat on plan when hungry, stop when full)

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here

Done - 🌈

Not Done - ❄️

It's no secret I hate tracking food...unfortunately it works...I opened up MFP and put in what I've been regularly eating for breakfast/lunch, then put in my menu for dinner this week...

I think I figured out why I'm not losing...not gaining, but not losing

So no test drive, wouldn't stop raining long enough...hopefully Friday

 

Ever have one of those days when you think the universe is trying to tell you something? I got a call yesterday from the recruiter for the dentist office I was going to go work for last year...the person they hired "didn't work out" (of course not, there's only one me!) and they want to see if I may be interested again...

I said to my co-worker the other day how I wish now I had taken it...

Stay tuned :lol:

Interview went well, got a few  more I'm looking at as well, one is for a not for profit that is right in my wheelhouse!

I have a regular Friday meeting with my boss, this week he told me that he was promoting and giving one person a raise, and talked about they were putting together an 'executive' team...apparently the reason why I'm not being promoted is I'm letting people irritate me and get under my skin...this has only been occurring the last year and I guess negates everything I've ever done prior to that. I would challenge them to find one person I haven't gone out of my way to help...not to mention that I've seen this guy cuss people out and lose his shit on more than one occasion...but I guess if you're the GM it doesn't matter.

I was starting to waver in my conviction to  leave again, not anymore. From now on every move I make will be to get out of there.

 

The Plan...Week 1

Cardio - Three interval runs/bicycle rides/HITT Workout, and one strength training a week.  🌈🌈🌈🌈+1 event

Update - Post in thread three times a week. 🌈🌈🌈

Track - Sleep (at least 7 hours a night) Food (eat on plan when hungry, stop when full) Sleep: ❄️❄️❄️❄️🌈🌈🌈 Food: 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here: not much going on that I want to deal with.

I'm glad you have several interviews in the works. I hope you get more than one offer and make them bid against each other. B)

 

By the time this week was over I had 3 in person, 2 preliminary phone, and one second (video) interviews...unfortunately none of them really excite me that much...no offers yet though.

Okay, so my goals were a bit off track this week, I don't feel too bad about it because there were good reasons.

Friday D went to the shop where my bike was supposedly being worked on, they had made no progress on it...I had been looking at one I could get financed, so I decided to go take it for a test drive after work if it was still available, it was...they even took my non-running one as a trade in.

I really am going to miss her 😢

But she is a beauty :D 

 

Spent today riding with D on the first nice weekend we've had since my bike wouldn't start...she rides like a dream❤️

Yay for having a working bike again!

 

I can't believe that a shop would hold your bike for weeks without working on it. Most places would say "we are booked up for the next two weeks, can you bring it in a week from Monday?"

 

Unless it is a special import shop and you don't have any other options. I had an old Saab for part of a year. There was only one guy in town who would work on it at reasonable rates. It was worth it to wait until he had an opening. That experience convinced me never to buy a Saab again, no matter how nice they are to drive.
