I GOT THE JOB!
These last few days have been full of pleasant surprises and the news of me getting the job I had interviewed for last week kept it going. I had not heard from them in slightly under a week which started to make me nervous. Of course I began to assume that I may have flopped and not got the job which didnt help motivate me so I kept myself focused on what I could control. I was called while on a walk and to my luck a Ice Cream Van was driving by me with its music so I could not anwser the phone. They left a voice mail requesting that I contact them asap and that put me into overdrive. I began to hustle to get home so I could get on the phone and get the new, good or bad didnt matter anymore because I just wanted closure. So when I got home I gave them a call and it was someone I had never talked to before so I got even more nervous. Maybe they gave him the call so that he could shoot me down and since he didnt know me it would be easy for him to move on. Yeah thats a bit dramatic but it was what I was thinking so I listened to him and finally he gave me the good news that they where going to offer me the job. He gave me the details and I accepted with the only request being that I push my start day back a week so I could move and not have to travel since it was a ways off with a lot of traffic. He is going to give me a call tomorrow but he assured me that it would not be an issue so I was happy to hear that.
That was the highlight of my pretty productive day, I was able to knock out 10 miles and my puppy joined me for the mid day 2 mile walk. I was up early and had finished 6 miles before noon so that is always a good for me, I hate having to rush more than 4 miles after 3pm or so. I had to go do some shopping with some already sore legs so that was fun, but any walking is a good thing for me! I purchased enough good healthy food to hold me over this week since I am going hard and want nothing to stand in my way. I picked up some chicken and will balance that out with my regular fish meals to mix it up a bit, I was starting to get tired of just fish. I did have a good nap once I got home from shopping which felt great, I really needed it. Once I woke up from that I quickly got going on my last 4 mile walk of the day and that is always a good feeling, achieving yopur daily goals always feels nice.
Breakfast - Fruit
Lunch - Chicken Fajita
Dinner - Vegetable Stirfry w/ Left over Fajitas
Tomorrow will be another consistent day as I will aim for another 10 miles and focus on eating correctly in the day. I dont think that will be a problem because I have my meals preplanned in my mind so that should help it all fall into place.
Things are begging to work out....NEVER SETTLE!
(My mom made some fajitas that kicked mine in the ass today when she got home, I look forward to those tomorrow and will of course miss her and also her amazing cooking. Thank goodness that I will be about an hour away as apposed to the 4+ hours I was when I live in Nevada.)
