Okay, the bitch is back...seriously this time!

 

Last challenge I moved on day one, in an RV that shall forever be known as "The Money Pit", back to where I have always considered to be "home", but unfortunately the location we originally found came with it's own game of "fireworks or gunshots?" so we had to find somewhere else to park, which is not as easy as it sounds if you need it long term! I also had to find a job, figure out bills with all the unexpected expenses that have come up in the last month, and not kill my wife in the process (which is the real challenge for me right now!) I also didn't have my own internet access so needless to say I wasn't on here much...I need to get back on track because my entire life has pretty much gone to hell, especially this last month, but the prior 3 certainly lead up to it as well... :( 

 

Some positive things...

We did find a place to park the RV long term

I have my own internet access now :) 

I did finish my course! All that's left now is to take the CDM exam

I have a job, just need to get my background check back and I can start...oddly enough, it's the only position I applied and got an interview for that was Dietary Management, all the rest were accounting positions...they are even going to  pay for me to take the exam, which is 399.00 :o

Not much more can go wrong with TMP, I don't want to say that too loud though, or it may decide to prove me wrong (in which case I give up and am getting an apartment!) 

 

Bad news, my laptop went kaput and I have to share with the wife now *sighs, not that she uses it much, but I prefered my own settings and layout...oh well, better than nothing

 

Goals...I need goals...I'm so all over the place right now...it's been so long since I haven't been doing some sort of 'homework' I don't even know where to begin...

I live in an RV, I don't have the funds just yet to join a gym, no room for equipment, I do have my kettlebells though, need to work on finding something I can do in my limited space, I need to get out and move more instead of sitting around and then taking out my aggravation on those around me, I need to study for the CDM exam so I'm ready...overall I need to figure out a routine that works for me and I can live with in this new venture.

  • Movement and strength training...figure out what works with what I have
  • Participate in the mini's!
  • Find a routine that works for me...this is also going to include a social aspect since I want to be involved with some of the things that I used to do before, like Holiday Helpers and Pride

Unofficial part of my challenge is remember to update here and check in with those I am following...I miss that, it got rather difficult with my wife and her "I just want to be included in every aspect of your life" that was driving me crazy and smothering me...I didn't really feel like I could freely express myself and still not sure how to deal with that...hopefully it will be better once I get back to work...

Hurray for all the good things!! Boo for all the bad things! *Hisses at them*

Idea for you: if you are cool with working out, outside and have a little bit in the budget for it, grab a set of resistance bands! I got a decent set off Amazon that have been really handy because it is too hot to walk to the gym this past month and all I have to workout in is a 5x7 space on my bedroom floor.

Also I believe there are several things you can do with them in GGS which if memory serves, you actually have [emoji14]

Also you should totally see if you can find The Money Pit on Netflix just so you can laugh about the whole situation a bit ^_~

Good luck!

I need mine to do something like this...she doesn't get upset she just wants to know every.little.thing...and it's irritating to me, I don't want to spend every minute breaking down what I talk about on here, because sometimes it's stuff that I can't tell her or don't tell her because she shoots down my perception of things...I don't tolerate stuff like that well...

Welcome back twin.  As usual you have made it thru the difficult time without killing anyone ..... That is actually a good thing.  Keep your chin up.  Things are coming together.  Glad you took the time to list the postitve things.  It is easy to forget them sometimes.

Trying to find that new routine is not easy.  It is what I have been doing for the last month and a half.  Don't focus on trying to get the perfect routine, just DO IT!  I just focused on walking more.  10,000 a day until I find the time ( this challenge) to add strength training.  I challenged you next week on Fitbit.  Do this and watch the mindless eating and you will see some results.  I know you know all this so don't try to complicate it.  

 

Missed you and can't wait to hear more about you Florida adventures.

So, another thing that makes me so thankful to be back in Florida, I believe I've mentioned my middle son is stationed in Kings Bay, GA? That is less than 30 minutes away...and today is his birthday :D 20 years old...no I'm not sure where that time went....but he was off yesterday so I got to spend his last day of his teenage years with him :cheerful:

Yesterday morning was also spent doing beach cleanup with a local pagan group, which was amazing...not sure I've ever mentioned how much I hated being 'landlocked'

Today I get to take "The Beast" (my wife's truck...my car is 'Beauty') to the dealership to see what's up with the tire sensor....this is the truck we got to haul the RV...:ambivalence:

 

I seriously need them to call me on a start date, this waiting mess is for the birds!

New routines are tough, cut yourself some slack while you navigate all of the changes. I'm super excited about your job though (waiting for a start date is the worst, I just did that in July, so I feel for you!), you'll be so awesome! What is CDM?

I think having your own stuff you do makes you appreciate the things you do together even more. I think that it's equally as important to grow individually as it is to grow together.

CDM = Certified Dietary Manager, it's generally the person that runs the staff and the kitchen, takes care of the day to day stuff and does some patient assessments in hospitals and nursing homes

I agree 1000%, my wife on the other hand is all "I just want us to do everything together forever..." uggggggggh

I'm so glad you are back!

 

My sympathy on the frustrations with your new living situation. Sounds like your wife needs a hobby of her own so that you can have some time to yourself.

 

You have kettlebells and a beach. Maybe even a bench in a park somewhere. With those you can do all kinds of bodyweight, strength and cardio training.

How much changes in a day...

Needless to say, all the issues were on their end (Comcast) they had to get a bucket truck out here and replace the line at the street...working beautifully for now, we shall see, I'm not going to hold my breath!

 

I found out when filling out paperwork yesterday for the Dietary Manager position that I was expected to work every other weekend, for less than I had been lead to believe, and I had found out a lot of negative things regarding this company through reviews on glassdoor.com...I had an interview for an accounting position a few days prior with the minor league baseball team here in Jax...granted it would also be a lot of late hours during the season but at least they were upfront about it, and it wasn't all the time...plus the fact that I worked very hard for that masters degree, at great personal expense, and I like the idea of being able to utilize that....well, I was called today and offered the position, for 10,000 a year more, do you think I took it?

mzOpy.gif

Damn right I did!!

 

I know I have the knowledge and ability to do either, but if I'm honest with myself I have little to no patience...I would be dealing with people at the end stages of their lives and that is not a good fit for me personally...I would get to the point I was miserable and dreading work...while I could see myself working at the other job for a long time...

 

 Kinda bombed on the mini for me this week, I had intended on getting 10,000 steps a day for 5 days...I may get 2 days with plans this weekend but not 5...I really miss my treadmill :( 

 

Now to catch up again! I was doing so well before Comcast acted up :P:lol:
