Ah, what a craptastic week!
After losing 1.2 lbs last week, My subconscious must have decided that it was time, once again, to go the other direction.
Happy Thanksgiving? Your results may vary.
Drove 1.5 hours to my brother's for Thanksgiving. He and his girlfriend got all of the food a day earlier at Marie Callender's (fairly high end restaurant). Everything was then heated up the next day. It was all pretty good too, but I'm guessing that it was pretty well laden with sodium since my weight went up over 4 lbs on that day alone (and no, I didn't eat anywhere near 4 lbs of food!) In fact, I kept my calories below 2,500 on turkey day.
Weight : 219.2
Gain : 5.4
Total : 100.8
Adding to the week's fun was the fact that I seem to be having a bit of a mental crisis. As another year comes to a close, I am no closer really to finding a job, which I desperately need. On top of that I seem to have a touch of the ADD because I can't concentrate on a career choice. I will have one thing in mind and I will research it like mad, dig up lots of information on the job and begin searching to find it, where ever it may be. But after a week or so, I seem to find something else and the previous job I was looking for holds no appeal for me, this process keeps repeating, driving me a bit mad.
As for finding just any job, I have to fairly picky. With herniated discs that have caused nerve damage, very worn out knees and bad shoulders, not to mention nerve issues in my arms from the shoulder injuries, I have to be careful what I do. I need a job that doesn't have me on my feet all day, or sitting all day. I need to be able to get up and move around as needed but also be able to sit down to work when my back tells me to. So as you can see, it's a bit of a quandary. Owning my own business was perfect because I could do what I wanted, when I wanted. But that life has been gone for 5 years now.
Okay, that's most definitely enough whining for now. It's time to go take my son to lunch and start putting this week behind me.
