This is week 26 in my series of Shape Up! The weekly post on what I did over the last week in my quest to getting healthier. (half a year in to it!)
This last week has been a worrying one for sure. I am still on the desperate search for my 14th job in 6 1/2 years. And after hearing from a TV station of a job fair for this new factory opening in Talladega I went down. They were looking for 50 people now and around 250 more people in the next 2 years. Well I was not the only one there as a few thousand people showed up as well. The line outside of the career center door was stretching out far into the parking lot. So since I have hardly any industrial experience I will probably not get a call back. So the never-ending search for a job that always ends up with me in a black hole continues.
At the same time I am searching for a new job. I see many of my former classmates and people I know doing lots of fun stuff. Many have gone to the beach or somewhere on vacation. And one is even getting married today. All of this just makes me daydream and think about what I would like to see. I would love to travel the world and see places such as Europe and Italy. I would love to help fund-raise money for a great cause. And I would love to be a person to turn such as here on Geek Alabama.
Over the last week I did not do much on the exercising front again mostly because of the limited income. The only thing I am doing is the walking which is time to think about things. I hope this unemployment situation comes to an end soon. Because I would love to step up the exercising to get in shape. I do not have to worry about the food because I am not eating much at all. Most days I do not get to the 1500 calorie mark which means my body thinks I am starving. And in turn limits the weight loss. If someone would hire me I would be able to eat more and it would help me get in shape.
Here is what I ate last week:
Saturday: Ham steak, Brown rice, Sweet tea.
Sunday: Hotpockets, Sweet tea.
Monday: Frozen pizza, Sweet tea.
Tuesday: Ham and Swiss sandwiches, Sweet tea.
Wednesday: Ham and Swiss sandwiches, Sweet tea.
Thursday: Hotpockets, Sweet tea, Fruit bar.
Friday: Fajitas, Sweet tea, Fruit bar.
Have a good week everyone!
