Hating work, but BEAST MODE

Saturday, September 14, 2013

So right now. I hate my job. I am very much in a mood where I'd like to be left alone. I don't feel well, but I'm not sick enough to warrant any real time off. We're in the thick of the project and the pressure is high.
I'm not crumbling under pressure as much as I just don't like whining. *which is ironic since this is a bit of a whiny post*

I sit most the day. I listen to people complain about issues in their way (issues I have absolutely no control over), and do the best I can to get the job done.

My husband and I have been separated for the past few weeks. He works day and I work night. We see each other when I wake up and he takes lunch and when I come home from lunch. Other than that, it's on Saturdays (if it's a gameday), and Wednesday (my offday). Hasn't been doing much for my mood. He makes me happy. That's why I married him after all.

Any time outside of work is either sleeping or exercising so that's a positive.
I updated my weight after I had lost the majority of the water weight (a week after I'd started back). I have another weigh in on Tuesday and I already know I've lost weight.

I've been using MFP (MyFitnessPal) to help keep my best friend motivated as she uses that app, and I've been using Gipis to work on my endurance and coming soon, speed during jogging. My calves burn though, persistant through the exercise. That's why I run/walk, but I've been pushing through the pain for the most part.

Saw Eels4peels's post about dietbet and have been considering joining. I have tried to organize something similar through work, but no one will buy in. Only thing is that I would have to buy a digital scale. I don't want to risk being audited.

Does anyone else use Gipis or diet bet? What are your experiences?

    I have an account with my fitness pal but I removed the app from my phone since I wasn't using it. I use this site a lot. Not sure about Gipis or diet bet. Never heard of them.

    Be strong! It looks like you are doing a great job balancing work an life stress with healthy habits. I don't know anything about the apps you mentioned.
