I'm at work right now, and I'm wanting to get fast food on the way home. I'm just having a bad day at work today. Simon has a way of doing that to me! He's one of the engineers and he's been checking my work today. Well he is so not understanding of the fact that I'm still a student and so inexperienced.
First off, I made a spelling error on one of the drawings, and he's chinese, so he said that I should know english better than him. You know, it was just a typing error, I switched around a couple letters, doesn't mean I don't know english. Then I gave him a package to review, well he came back with all these corrections and I made them and gave it back to him. Well, he said "are you sure?" and so not in a nice way. Then he had more corrections and did the same thing again, he always does it. He acts like I should know everything and not make any mistakes ever. He's just not a nice person and I hate when I have to get him to review my stuff.
When my boss, Natalie, does it she's very nice and explains everything, and explains why we do things a certain way, no matter how many times I have to go back and fix it. Granted my dad is her boss, but I'm not even willing to go to my dad and complain about Simon, and I don't have the guts to say anything to him. I just can't be confrontational like that. I want to do really well too, especially because I work for family.
So right now, I want to go home and pick up dinner on the way and I know I shouldn't. I don't know what I can do to stop myself right because I am so not in a good mood and I have no will power tonight.

Ok so for my no eating out for breakfast challenge I made a not so good choice for breakfast yesterday but today was really good.
Breakfast: instant plain oatmeal with 1/4 cup dried fruit and 1 tbsp honey
I could have gone without the honey though because it was sooo sweet, and that's saying something because I love sweet. I only added it because I don't like plain oatmeal and I wasn't sure if the fruit would make it sweet enough. I think also I'll need to have something else with my breakfast, like yogurt or something because it's now 10:30 and I'm already getting hungry. I ate at 7:30 this morning. Though I suppose this could be a good time to have my morning snack.
I will be going swimming tonight as well for the challenge, and I will go for at least 40 minutes and actually count my laps this time. Keeping in mind though that I'm not the most skilled swimmer and so I can't swim continuously.

Ok, I have been challenged by THEICEVALKYIRE to not eat out at all for a whole week, this is still something I'm working on so it's a great challenge. She also challenged me to swim 25 laps more or do a water aerobics class. The classes interfere with my schedule this week and I don't actually know how many laps I've been swimming. I only just recently started swimming as part of my exercise routine so I haven't been counting lol. I will start counting and I will add an extra 10 minutes or so as that part. I will update this blog each day with my breakfast and on swimming days for how long I went. I usually go for 25 or 30 minutes and I will aim for 40 - 45 this week.
Monday - poptarts! not the best breakfast but I did eat at home ^_^

Well I'm doing pretty good so far with eating at home more often. I pack lunch every day for work now, and I'm eating breakfast and dinner at home more often though still not all the time. I think I'll be good by the end of the month though when I start trying to improve WHAT I'm eating. It has already gotten better by not eating out but not by enough.
I've been meaning to start swimming too. I have read many things online, it's good for weight loss, or it's not good for weight loss but is for general fitness. So I decided even if it's only good for general fitness that will help with the other stuff I'm doing. It's also a lot of fun and I find it relaxing. I do have pretty bad technique though lol, I haven't done much to practice my technique since I stopped swimming lessons at around 12. I will be doing some adult swimming lessons to work on this so I can get better and hopefully do more. I'm going to start going in about a month when my Monday nights are free. For now, I'll just go ahead without being good at it lol.
Work has been going well, I'm doing more and seem to be a bit more busy lately. I am still having a problem with my neck, it's been really sore. After getting a massage it was good for a few weeks so I'm going to go again and then again shortly after. It really causes me problems when the pain in my neck gives me a migraine.
Dance lessons are going well too, they reworked my program to inlcude the viennese waltz. Oh it's so hard lol. I have problems with just the basic step lol. It's all turns though, and really fast. So even the basic steps are not so basic lol. My teacher also knows I'm uncomfortable getting really close to people, so yesterday she showed me a little bit about the body contact, but only a little and we didn't actually dance like that. It was very awkward for me but good that I'm starting to get into it even only a tiny bit. The problem is mainly that in a proper hold our stomachs would be touching, I'm ok with just our hands now, though even that was uncomfortable in the beginning. I'm gettin there ^_^
I think that covers everything new for me lol. Hope you all have a great day!
