Dating someone new is always mentally exhausting for me, but the guy I’m seeing works the graveyard shift, so this has also been physically exhausting. On Wednesday night, we talked on the phone until 4:30 am, and then I spent the night with him the following night and hardly got any sleep. So therefore, I’ve just been way too tired to work out and think about proper nutrition. I only worked out once this week, which was a 10 mile stationary bike ride at the Y. But thankfully, I’ve only gained .6 since Monday.
Christian and I had a lovely date on Thursday evening. Our plan was for me to meet him at his house and hang out with him while he worked on some stuff around his house, and then we’d go to my house for the rest of the evening. However, he had gotten a flat tire, so we traveled the county looking for a new tire for him. We had no luck, but we ended up having a very late dinner at Olive Garden. Now this is where I KNOW I’ve changed my relationship with food. I would have normally ordered a meal and eaten the entire thing plus 3 or so breadsticks. I ordered the chicken parmigiana with the chicken and gnocchi soup. I had half the bowl of soup, which didn’t have much flavor anyway, and only one breast of chicken. The pasta that came with the chicken was regular spaghetti noodles, but I haven’t had white pasta in soo long, that it didn’t even taste good. And I didn’t even keep the leftovers. I told Christian he could have them for his lunch the next day. (More on my relationship changes with food in my next post).
Finances are getting better. My Wii is selling on eBay today, along with a Lost DVD. But with money being low, I haven’t been able to buy the groceries I want to buy. I’ve been having Lance crackers for a few lunches, or whatever else I can find in the break room at work.
Work’s been pretty awesome. I don’t know if I’ve shared what I do. I’m a mortgage loan officer & processor with my family’s mortgage company. This week, I took on the duties of Human Resources and interviewed some really great people, and I offered 3 people a loan officer position. I’ve heard back from 2 of them, and I’m waiting on the other. The two that responded both said they want to join our company. It’s always exciting to hire new people! But not exciting to train them, which I don’t think I’m good at.
Since it’s rather hot out today, I’m spending the day inside playing online poker and catching up with the DVR. I’m supposed to meet my mom at the beach tomorrow morning. Next weekend, I’m cleaning my parents’ house, and they’re paying me $60 for it. Yay!
I am rather disappointed in myself… there was a 5K race this morning, and I totally slept through it. I hadn’t signed up for it, but I needed to run it to be eligible for the Championship Series. I guess I’ve lost my motivation. Must.find.it.again!
