I have a phone interview later this morning for which I am concentrating, so I can’t spend much time on the blog today. Last July I gambled that I would be able to get another software developer job in January of 2017, I hope that I don’t lose this bet the way I have so many in the past.
I spent another eighty minutes on the trainer yesterday. With each ride I get progressively stronger. Though I need to get some sort of exercise today it won’t be in the form of riding the trainer.
Since the beginning of the year I have weighed myself on my home scale every other day. [see next section for the continuation of this.]
After working out I strained a muscle in my back yesterday. It doesn’t feel too bad, but it’s definitely an impediment to getting exercise today.
I also feel as if I am fighting off a bit of a cold, perhaps due to weather change, perhaps due to a fatigued immune system from four days of trainer riding, perhaps from something else. I can tell you for sure that it’s not from kissing someone recently. Poop.
I am not losing weight. Here’s the tale of the tape thus far:
01/01 11:15, 223.8
01/03 07:00, 223.8
01/05 09:20, 221.4
01/07 08:25, 221.2
01/09 06:30, 222.4
01/11 08:15, 222.2
I forgot to stop at the grocery store last night, therefore I will either rush out to Kro-Bar after my phone interview, perhaps on foot, or attempt to make my soup using only the ingredients I have on hand (which is about 90% of what is called for by the recipe). I hope my soup doesn’t come out ugly.
My eyesight appears to be getting progressively worse. Related: I am old.
My performance in German class was abysmal last night. I am so lost again and need to devote many hours to vocabulary and grammar in order to regain what little confidence I once had.
There have been no photos take by me this year. None!
For two days I have been attempting a Sunday NY Times crossword puzzle and I am still only about 50% complete, and am stuck. These puzzles vex me. For instance what is a five-letter word for “Poop” when when you have “F_C_S”? Naturally I put “FECES”, made sense to me. However, I was wrong. (In the iOS app you can “Check Puzzle” and see which of the answers you have right or wrong. I check my answers after getting to a point at which I can no longer answer clues.)
Make it a great day!
