Wow, haven't been here in a while. I was sure on my pity pot, huh? The partial tear didn't open up in my left eye thankfully. This morning, I found out I didn't get the project coordinator job I interviewed for last week. I would have had to wait 1.5 years to get 5 days vacation, but it paid well. I'm in the maintenance phase of hcg and am journaling over there at their diet forum. Not here much anymore. Glad for the visits! Thank you ladies!
I finally met my new therapist at the clinic yesterday, she will be there 4 years, so I will finally have someone long term. Looking forward to working with her.
Still haven't gotten my arse to the gym!
It's day three not smoking again. It's soooo darn hard because I went off the wellbutrin...was hardly sleeping from stress and it made me nervous. So it's on my own without nicotene gum, ecigs, meds. LOL

Job was a no go, but something better will come.
Finally got back to the gym today and did the weight machines.
Am still stopped smoking..since May 15th. Almost bought a pack last week.
Glad I didn't.
My muscles are measly....starting over...
Eating is still clean, been staying away from trigger foods. Been able to eat in the 2000 range, high fat, high carbs, high protein. LOL Carbs I've handled without any problem: apples, blueberries, grapefruit, sweet potato/yam, popcorn. Had one light beer yesterday without repercussions. The only daiy Ive incorporated is kefir. Still no cheeses. Staying away from sugar free candy. Snack on these dark chocolate flaxmeal brownies I make with coconut oil and I put a generous amount of thawed blueberries in the mix. Slightly undercook them. Freeze them. Not too sweet and delish.

June 11, 2014 Wednesday
Worked out at the gym today.
Met a meetup group at the local park and walked 40 minutes. Really pushed it and my feet/knees were sore. Iced afterwards. This is only the second time I've walked extensively this spring/summer. Need to work up to it with the P.F.
Dipping my toes in the dating pool again. Blind date at Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner tomorrow night.
My niece is getting married on Friday night.
Then a couple girlfriends talked me into going out dancing on Saturday.
My dance card hasn't been this full in months! LOL
Had a phone interview with a construction company from Michigan today (their company is working on the GM project - it's a year long project, but 40 miles away.
They will be in town next week and want to do an in person interview. If I pass that, I'll have an interview with the Project Manager at GM.

My weight has stabilized between 141 and 142 in maintenance so far. Staying away from trigger foods.

I don't even remember what date that was. Went on two. The last one was okay, they both have motorcycles, but he lives about an hour away.
Finally worked out again today, then hit the pool for a dip and a read.
My part time job has 40 hours for me this week. WooHoo! I may have two more interviews for work also. Somethings gotta give this summer, huh?

Hi Izzysdream! Subscribing to your journal. Seeing your lifting stats is really inspirational.. Makes me want to plan a new routine. Not to mention your weight stats too, they are phenominal!

Happy Friday to you!

Hi ladies!
I have an interview with GM on Wednesday at 11:30 central time. Send me some good energy about that time! It's through Sorensen Construction in Michigan, they have a year contract at GM. The only down side is that it is about an hour drive. Upside is that it is what I used to do (rusty, it's been since 2010). If I do well I could travel as part of Sorensen's construction management team to other GM plants in the United States. Since I don't have a family or significant other, this idea is appealing to me. I have been wanting to "shake up" my life for a while.

Have another date with Bob tonight. We are driving up the river road to Grafton on his motorcycle for dinner weather permitting. Tomorrow I might see ...omigod..I forgot his name. There are 4 guys I am talking to right now. LOL
Went to see the picasso documentary with a film meetup group last night. First time going. I met some really nice people. A Ukranian woman who lives in my neighborhood! I told her about the neighborhood pool, I'll probably invite her tomorrow if it is nice outside.

Dealt with a few days of depression (hormonal mood swing?) this past week and did some emotional eating, but pulled myself out of it without an impact on my weight. Can't believe I can eat this much and maintain my weight. HCG does indeed increase the metabolism.

I have for the most part stayed away from dairy except kefir, wheat and other white products, and the sugarfree chocolate candies I used to partake. Last night after the documentary four of us stopped at the Cheshire Inn and I had a lovely glass of merlot. Just one. Yum!

Third workout this week. WooHoo!
Dropped my car off to friend for repairs at noon.
By 1:00 I had calls for interview tomorrow.
By the time I found a ride my slot had been given away.
Hopefully they have an opening on Monday.
It is through a staffing agency for a 90 temp to hire position.
Have two other interviews next week.
Something's gotta give finally on the job front!
Have a date with someone I'm interested in on Saturday. Going to do Mexican...

Been on vacation in Branson for the past 3 days. Been eating P3 foods and alcohol, won't know what I weigh until Monday more. Going out for Mexican tonight so it'll be a bit off plan...going to have some tortilla chips! Driving home tomorrow.

Drove home from vacation today. Forced my arse to the gym and did the weight machines. I'm journaling in two journals at another hcg website so I'm not prone to repeat here. I'm either the same as before vacation 141...or even a bit less. I'll find out tomorrow when i weigh in.

Yes, project coordinator at a construction company, started today. Like it so far. Its 90 day temp to hire position.



Had first paid session with my trainer Stan for an hour tonight. He killed me! Went for a swim afterward to cool my muscles, soaked in epsom salts and getting ready to put the ice packs back on...lol...if I thought I was working out before? Ha! I was just playin' compared to what he makes me do!
