I know it's hormonal, it happens every month. But that doesn't change the fact that I have had two days of a nonstop food orgy. I feel so miserable and bloated, and just plain angry at myself. This month is a little harder, I'm not working and I am still stuck living in a hotel, so I have nothing to do that can keep me busy and my mind off of food.
I am still exercising. After running most of my 5K on Saturday and only taking a couple very short walk breaks after a large hill, I decided instead of finishing my 5K training I would start my 8K training. Monday's workout was 4.04 miles of intervals for 50 minutes, 5 min warm-up followed by five 7:1 intervals and a 5 min cool-down. Followed by a nine minute .62mile walk back to the hotel (14:40 pace). Yesterday's was 60 minutes on the elliptical with varying resistance levels. And it's looking like the TM and strength training today.
I did get some good news on the house. The were able to get the electricity ran to the house, hooked up, and turned on. The water is supposed to get hooked up and turned on today. But that is probably as far as it is going to get this week with this winter storm pending. We have come to the agreement that once the new heat and central air is hooked up, the back deck built and the handrails put on the two porches he will get the certificate of occupancy and we can move in. They will just work on the house while we live in it, and I will get to help. This will give me something to do with my time so I feel productive.
That is a lot of my problem too. I like to work, I want to work, I need to work. But I haven't worked since I quit my job on December 20th in preparation of my move. Friday will be nine weeks. I need some human interaction, other than my BF and our furbaby. Don't get me wrong, I love them both but neither of them are big talkers. I need to be around more people, I need more human interaction. I am a talker and I love being around people and socializing. That is why I have always worked retail and customer service.
Once we get settled in, our landlord, he is really great, has offered to put me in contact with one of his golf buddies to get me a job. He thinks I need to work at his buddy's car dealership, selling cars. We will see.
Thanks as always for letting me rant.
