Plans sch-mans!

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

As usual, I make plans and a higher power laughs.

The plan for today's interview is...I mean WAS to walk 1.5 miles to the bus and then another half mile or so to the place. It was another employment agency...I think I am "employed" by about 7 of them now and still don't have a job, but I keep thinking that surely ONE of them will find a match for me.

I got off track (as usual), then after my interview I was going to walk back to the bus and then from the bus stop, walk back home.

After my shower this morning, I was running around in a towel, trying to get my act together, my sister walked into the house...Oh hai! She hurt her back this morning and needed me to take her to the chiro and then after that to get x-rays. As soon as she was done with that, I dropped her at home and got to my interview with 10 minutes to spare.

On the way back home, I started to get shaky because I had only eaten a bowl of cereal at breakfast....by the time everything was said and done, it was almost 3 pm. I talked myself out of stopping for fast food and stopped at the Fresh Market and built myself a protein heavy salad. Yay for me!
PLUS..I had no dressing on it! I had only a bit of lettuce, but had grilled chicken, a little bit of (fake) crab meat, green olives, artichoke hearts, green peas (which my stomach will pay me back for eating), real bacon bits, and a blob of guacamole on the side.
I did have a little mishap with the bacon bits tho, they were in a carafe and when I tried to shake a few out, I got a big clump, lol, not that I was complaining too much, but it was more than I intended to take.
I got this huge salad that filled me up, was all organic ingredients, and it was only 5 bucks and change.

After I got back home (with plenty of time to get a walk or ride in), I took my sister up to the pharmacy to get a script filled, straightened up the kitchen and living room a bit, made dinner...baked salmon, baked onion rings, and corn, and here I am.

My niece's baby shower is this coming Sunday and I have a few things to get for her that need a trip to Babies-R-Us and although my sis is not planning on going to the shower, she wants to get something for the baby and I will take it with me to the shower. My sis has another appointment with the chiropractor tomorrow afternoon, so we will head out in the morning to do some slow shopping beforehand. I won't get any fast cardio walking in while shopping, but I will be able to be out and get some slow walking in!
I figure that slow walking is better than no walking.

Take care and love yourself!

    Sounds like your day went pretty well, even with plans being derailed!

    Salad sounds gooood! I just discovered my grocery store near my new house has an AMAZING salad bar. I'm pretty excited about it!

    I agree in the morning, it is good to have some kind of protein instead of waiting to end of day... Hope your sister's back gets better soon, that is no fun!

    Glad you got to your interview on time.

    Slower walking is all I get in due to rough terrain here.
    I miss cement and paving! and my youth. Lately parts of my feet
    are hurting and I don't like that at all.

    I hope the right place hires you, as you are sure trying with all you have to get hired.

    You had a full day. I have made it a practice to try to have more protein for breakfast. One way is using plain Greek yogurt. I also sometimes add an egg or tablespoon of peanut butter. You need more protein in your body when you go for those interviews and are walking. Keep up your positive attitude. Peace, June emoticon
