Well, I'm doing the Swimsuit challenge bootcamp. It is a challenge to do the exercises on a daily basis for the ten or so minutes.
The last time I had a WHAMMIE hit me, I rushed to take care of the issue. This time there is an urgency to solve the issue, only this time I'm not rushing to do something.........and the first 24 hours I was numb, angry, bewildered. Now, I'm beginning to think of my options. I think that I will stall over the Memorial Day Weekend to think this through........it was like a glacier, I saw it coming only got surprised when it got here.
Saturday am......still thinking. Needed to do a family thing yesterday during the time I wanted to swim....today, I'll go.
I went swimming this morning and the water aerobics never starts on time and we paddle about moving about and socialize. The leader can be good if she sets herself up for the am. So, I'm torn between swimming laps and socializing. The leader can do a kick butt routine for us. This morning, the lap lanes were double full, and I caught up with people from the group. When there are new people we usually do some great routines, and they were just starting to do that, by the way, a half hour late. I left and met some friends, took a nap and had lunch. Now I'm sitting down and doing job search things. only, that's not going well either.
Food--I ate out this am....go figure, waffle house....2 eggs, toast coffee, hasb browns.......and a donut,
Sunday, a quiet one. There has been a nasty and non-professional resident manager who has driven people away. There are 1/3 of the units in this building alone that are empty. A good thing for me today though. That means I got the laundry room early today and I can set up camp there and do a whole regiment of laundry.
Sunday evening--the only way that i have ever been able to help myself do an ugly task is to sit in front of it and wait til I do it. That is what I have done today.
Tuesday am---well, dealing with the WHAMMIE. I have to take a step back and find a different apartment. I took a long time to find this one and I love it. Only it's taking me a long time to realize that when other things aren't tolerable about the situation here, then I need to look elsewhere. What a bummer. This is one of the first challenges in my life that I am facing. About the food? Yes, I had the donut for breakfast this am but I also made a grocery stop last night and bought the good stuff. Watermelon for supper tonight. Yeah me. The resident manager is a controlling non-professional. She was right about some things and could easily (in my opinion) handled things by focusing on the problem instead of controlling things and belittleing me........when the conversation this am got heated and she would not stop talking above me when the owner was also present--I turned in my 30 day notice.
Lifestyle changes is what this is all about, and dealing with challenges and stress and not turning to food. Now, here is a change. I like my surroundings and will be looking for somewhere else. I think though that I will not be hitting the bed and going into a fetal position, I also think that I will be continuing with my exercise plan and food choices. I will not be going spiraling downward in those things. I'm not thinking that I will be able to focus on improving the exercise and eating, but at least I won't go downward.
Friday am--like early. I'm looking for a new apartment and I got two egg boxes from Krogers today. In 30 days I will be living some place else. With a sane resident manager, I hope. Also asked two people to be my references, and I want to do a life change as well.
