Update on me October 2018

Saturday, October 27, 2018

Well, I did not blog in September. I am being honest here my motivation is not what it should be. I am not happy, not happy with my job, not happy with my weight. I did not see the point of putting a blog of negativity and staying the same. Yes, still stuck in this eternal plateau.

Weight wise: I was still doing Keto and still in a plateau even though I had my Macros evaluated. I had a very long time reaching my fats for the day. My weight fluctuates between 184 and 187 all the time yes gained again. Again financially right now I cannot afford a Coach, I am saving up for our Cuba trip plus other factors which I will share below.

CrossFIt / Fitness: My original partner for my CrossFit competition bailed on my a week before, I paid $140 for us both; lost that money. An another woman filled in from an another gym; a bit disappointed with my performance since they were strict pull-ups and regular pull-ups which I had to use bands for which penalized us. We came in 3rd place BUT we were only 3 teams of Masters to begin with.

I did hit a couple of new PRs in October, just yesterday 3 x 2 Back squats at 200 pounds and other but not motivated to write them down *lol*.

Job wise: I no longer like my job ! There is a lot work, and I am the one always doing it. I am often asked to go to meeting for my team leader. She always gets to work from home. I indirectly supervise a Jr. Officer which I should not be. And our Manager one of the reason I joined this team announced that she was leaving. Compared to my other colleagues, I literally always going at 100 miles an hour. Even the Jr. Officer has spoken to me several times on how things are not equal but things are not changing. After our Cuba holidays I will be actively looking for something else.

Personal: My Mom had her right hip replaced on October 1st, the operation itself is a success but she has suffered chronic pain for over a year. Now all these complications have surfaced. Therefore, my Mom has a lot of Dr.'s appointments etc. both my sisters and my Mom's friend are helping out. This brings me back to my work situation, I requested working from home to be with my Mom. Basically, I was told well we are very busy....however, my team leader is always working from home because her kids are sick you see what I mean. So instead of arguing with her I am just taking time off, or taking sick leave.

Also, an another that has kept me busy. My husband and I have decided to downsize and eventually sell our home. So we have started to look for a house with my youngest daughter and son in law that has a parental unit for us. Not easy *lol*, they all want to live in the country and I do not want to travel 45 to 60 minutes for work. Anyhow.

I love the fall season, I stocked up on Pumpkin spice coffee going to purchase more today. Last week, and this week my daughter and the Grandkids have been staying with us their rental unit is under renovations. So for dinner my son-in-law and his younger brother whom it has custody of come over for dinner. They go back to the house to sleep, so our house is currently full with 2 dogs, 2 cats as well.

Thanks for reading me !
