Part of my job is to put on programs for residents living in our dining halls. This week I have somehow managed to NOT go off my plan and NOT eat candy, soda, or popcorn at a movie program last night and also made it through an hour and a half of not eating chicken fingers from Raising Cane’s. I have so many healthy and tasty foods at home that it has been fairly easy to keep myself from going overboard this week. I have been allowing myself to use my extra 49 points during the week, but only by using them sparingly- not all at one time. It also helps when I look up the values of the foods I am tempted to eat ahead of time. I found out that 3 chicken fingers, texas toast, and sauce was 22 points- that’s almost a whole day’s worth of points!
Today was a rest day because yesterday when I tried to run my legs just were not feeling it. It doesn’t help that the temperature is already in the triple digits, which seems to make everyone tired. Tomorrow I am going to try to get a good long workout in .
Other than that I am still waiting to hear from jobs I have applied to or interviewed for already. Each day I find one or two jobs that are still opening up. At this point I have applied for well over 70 jobs, and considering that each takes about 1 hour to apply for and that I had two on campus interviews plus 20 interviews while I was in Orlando…well, that is a lot of time. I can’t even fathom all the time, money, effort, sweat, and tears I have put into this job search. It is bananas.
Tomorrow is another day….Patience is a virtue…Cliches don’t really help.
Peace and Love,
