I'd never make it on Jersey Shore

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Gym, tan, laundry, that's one of that show's enduring mottos. Only managed to do one of the three today, the laundry part. Didn't go to the gym, a somewhat planned omission; after all, I'd been there the previous 4 days. Bigger reason, I was sore after playing ultimate and pickleball on Tuesday. As for the tan part...glance over at my user pic, and you might understand why it's rather optional in my case.

After musing just yesterday about what getting a job might mean for gym visits, I spent a large part of today contemplating applying for employment that might mean travelling 4-5 days a week, and living out of hotels more often than sleeping in my own bed. Don't really know how good a candidate I'd be for that sort of thing, but between the compensation, and the continued unemployment, it's definitely an option. That said, it's an option fraught with challenges, as far as healthful activities and eating.

Definitely something to consider.

For the record, the scale read 175.8 this morning. I wouldn't ordinarily record it on Spark after a single reading at a new level, but since it's weigh in day for the BLC 21 thing, I entered it in the system. Realized then that I'd forgotten to put in the 178 from last week (that represented a gain of a pound from the previous week, but probably had to do as much with the fact that I failed to weigh in at the same time of day as I usually do as with the super bowl pizza splurge of the preceding weekend). As with all one day readings, haven't a clue if it's real. Didn't do myself any favors with the grocery trip I did this evening, wherein a few snackages made their way into my cart. But I will enjoy noshing on them. Did you know that with reduced fat Cheez-its, you get a whopping two more crackers per serving (29 vs 27!), with a 20 calorie deficit as compared to real Cheez-its? Sadly, they squander that advantage, and more, by just not tasting near enough to the real thing.

    You would be the star. I know and am related to a number of Guidos and you wit would have them in mental knots.

Concerning work and travel. I have always done my best when I was in positions that required travel. Most hotels have small gyms that few use and when eating out, I can always order healthy meals. It makes it simple for me.
