My phone is old af apparently. It meets my needs, but to work with the firm’s technology it’s old and needs more space. I’ve been down there 3 times at an hour + each time and it’s still not done. And so the stuff they have been able to do is eating up more data. I will be getting a stipend so maybe need to upgrade my good enough plan. My issue is if I leave this job I’m stuck with a bigger plan than I want to pay for on my own. Ah well, cross that bridge then. Week 3 and feel like I’ve been there for awhile. Feeling pretty comfortable with many of the usuals I see daily. Met a new face in the staff lounge and she was great. Friendly and full of energy. Perfect combo.
I am sitting in on another training session again. This time with a different purpose. First break wasn’t until 11:15-11:30 am. The mornings are getting easier (at work anyway. The weekend still needs some discipline) to achieve the 16-hours fast if I finish eating by 7pm the night before.
Ate another 2 packets of oatmeal again – 1 plain and 1 maple and brown sugar. I know I need to wean myself to just one packet, but the plain is too bland. I like that it’s warm so not really feeling making my own overnight oatmeal that you leave I’m the fridge. I don’t mind the Chia seed pudding cold, so need to bring that again. I made a small little snack plate of beet crackers, sea salt rice crackers and one cranberry cookie. That’s what happens when you don’t pack healthy snacks. Ugh. Not good.
On a side note of TMI, since I haven’t had my usual baby carrots and hummus snack for 4 days my poop is soft again. I was pooping nuggets like a rabbit when I was eating all those carrots. I drank a lot of water so I’m pretty sure it was the carrots.
Food log for work:
- 2 cups Green tea, 6 cups water
- 2 packets oatmeal
- Salad, roast veggies, roast beef (made from dinner last night)
- Crackers and a cookie
- 6 chocolate covered cashews
My foot got worse and by the end of the day it looked like a marshmallow it was so swollen and painful. I went to my doctor office’s after-hours care and waited 2.5 hours. It felt like an eternity with a tired husband and toddler. By the 2-hour mark everyone wanted to cry. Baby lasted 1.5 hours, so that last hour was brutal. By the time I got I to the little roo. To see the doctor my bp was 158/105. Ffs! I got the requisition for an x-ray, recommendations were basically rest, ice it, elevate, and advice for the swelling. She touched it and at first I thought it was fine cause although sore it was bearable. But when she tough the joint I yelped and I cried. Fak! I’ve been walking using the side of my foot to not put pressure on my big toe. She doesn’t think it’s just a stubbed toe due to the amount of swelling, I couldn’t move it and the level of pain, it has been under 24 hours and it’s only gotten worse, but I was holding out that maybe by tomorrow it will get better. I just don’t want to have arthritis or some bone issue when I get older. By the time I got home and finished eating the rice noodles and cha-siu the hubby and baby picked up, it was 9:30 pm.
