So I got a call this afternoon. That job I interviewed for this morning? I've got an offer from them too! All this time searching and then two offers in one day! I've got a massive decision to make over the net couple of days as to which leg of the trousers of time I walk down, but man I'm excited!

Mega congrats Jarric, what are the jobs may i ask? 

 

Im in Manchester :) i like London but doubt i could live there.

Commercial insurance broking - not the most exciting sounding thing in the world but I enjoy it.

 

I'm really not a city boy at all, much more comfortable in the country, so I'd never want to live in London. Currently I live in Sussex and commute in, but that commute /sucks/.

Woo!  Awesome news Jarric!    Hard decisions are hard.   So if it comes to that, I will be sending all the good decision making vibes your way!

 

 

Thank you! I hope they help me make the right call! Then again, in the absence of having a crystal ball I'll never actually know what could have been, so I guess I won't know if I've made the wrong one :) .

Definitely, it's an excellent problem to have!

Yeah, you got both jobs cause you're that damn good

 

Reserving my spot, I'll try to keep up.

 

Damn right I am! Cheers dude.

Actions/Day Scores for Wednesday:

  • Took morning hayfever meds
  • Pre-prepped breakfast on the train
  • Checked in on here
  • Got in the gym before work - This was squat day but it's deload week (it's been deload week for about a month with how rarely I've been getting in, planning to actually push through it now!). The DOMS are pretty strong still due to the break since last leg day. [+5]
  • Stretched after my workout
  • Ate a pre-prepped lunch
  • Read the blog article about mindfulness and tried that for a few minutes (a busy street in London is not the best place to attempt this as a beginner, FYI!)
  • Took the stairs
  • Pre-prepped wrap on train
  • Daily dare - 30 tuck jumps - with EC (on leg day - so mean!) [+2]
  • Reasonably healthy dinner - puttanesca risotto with salmon
  • To bed on time
  • No alcohol all day
  • Not late for anything all day

For a total of 20 points.

 

This is probably a more reasonable score to expect from an average day (particularly whilst there's still Easter chocolate in the house), but it still looks like I did quite a bit of stuff right :) .

Cheers, yeah that's a good idea. There will also be much reading of contracts and offer letters and whatnot to do.

 

If you train enough you can definitely get there, there's a lot of 5-7k ones as an easier start up to the really hard stuff. I've only actually done one OCR, with my second next week. If you really want to be in awe I recommend starting with @Charlie_Quinn and @EricMN

How the times have changed, brother! That's great news about the 2 job offers! How are both on the commute level? Also, I totally dig your challenge. I've done a point based challenge before and was generally shocked at ALL that I did on a daily. Keep up the great work, dude!

Dude congrats! What a problem to have. 

 

(Want to do my job applications now? Clearly you've mastered it.)

 

Thanks! To be honest I just wrote a CV and gave the hard work to a couple of recruitment consultants - it seems to have worked!

One's about a 45 minute drive, the other's like a 20 minute /walk/. Either way a lot better than what I have now!

 

And thanks Wolfman, encouraging to hear it worked for you!

Zero Week - Thursday

  • Woke up on time
  • Ran. 1 mile slow, 4 fast, 1 slow. Total of 6.15 miles in 58:26 [+5]
  • Stretched after my run
  • Took hayfever meds
  • Brushed teeth
  • Had a job interview
  • Took the stairs
  • Updated the journal
  • Checked in here
  • Pull ups (5, 5, 4, 4, 4)
  • Set out work clothes
  • Set out gym kit
  • No alcohol all day
  • On time all day

For a total score of 18.

 

Was always going to be a lower scoring day as working a half day so out of routine and not taking a bag to work I couldn't take any food in. Food was actual garbage - Coco pops for breakfast, Burger King lunch, Dominos pizza dinner - blech! Also stayed up late watching critical role; man that show's addictive!

 

Today I have crazy DOMS, like the "I can barely walk" kind. Tomorrow I will therefore do no workout, and hope to be at my best come Warrior Run on Sunday :D

I don't think any one is going to fault you for taking a rest day before going off to Warrior Run!

Well that's not as fun. You can go to my interviews for me then. They'll never notice. 

 

Time zones are dumb and I can't figure out if your race is saturday or sunday but I hope you crush it either way.

I've got a few things going on at the moment and the past couple of months have been pretty stressful - I won't moan about that now (though I'm sure there will be some of that this challenge). Last challenge I tried to be very strict with my goals and use extra discipline to pull through it, and to be honest that went pretty horribly.

 

I hope you realise that just the fact you're still here in the Rebellion, reflecting and planning, is really awesome.

Basically though if I think something's worth a point I'm giving myself a point for it! I've put workouts as being worth 5 points as I think that they're important, as also as they take vastly longer than most of the other things on there!

 

My gamer brain is saying 'make combos!' - for example a bonus point if you do something from every category. But if you want to keep it simple I understand that too :D

Ain't it always the way? Double congrats!

Same. And I'm really curious to hear where the dressing gown fits into everything!

That picture really made me think of Arthur Dent ;)

It's probably got something to do with gallivanting across the galaxy.
