Notes: a higher cal day today. My meals and snack were fine and sat in the 1200 bracket, but it was the bag of popcorn that pushed me way over. I’m not mad about it I suppose. I mean, it could have been a proper binge purge situation, but I’m okay with slightly higher cals for a day. For now. Okay I’m a little annoyed that my weigh in won’t be perfect tomorrow. Speaking of weigh in, I’ve gained around 1kg but I suppose that’s also okay given how messy my life has been. I’m just annoyed at being stuck in the same weight range for so long. It’s my fault though. I haven’t been super consistent so what do I expect.
I went to the gym as soon as I woke up. I didn’t do my run as I don’t want to run more than three times a week due to all the horror stories you hear about constant running wearing down joints and knees. I’ve done one with this week and will do two more over the weekend. I tried the preworkout. The package warned it would make your skin tingle which was a really weird sensation. I enjoyed the leg and Abs workout though. Got my squat and leg press back up to 50kg for 8-10reps which was awesome.
I came home and napped. Woke up an hour before my third interview. The interview was a really mixed bag. I don’t think the interviewer liked me very much. He outright said after one of the questions “you don’t have to experience for this role. But we’ve hired people without experience before.” So It’s not looking too good. He said I’ll hear back in the next few days, so I’m hoping to hear back on Monday or Tuesday. It would honestly be life changing if I got this job as the pay would really make a difference to my life and I can finally stop asking my dad to help me out financially. I guess we’ll see what happens.
Then I chilled with puppy, washed my hair because it was gross, and had dinner. At 7:30pm I met my dad to watch a screening of Joker on Paddington canal. It was cool as it was a floating cinema, and we sat on deckchairs and listened through headphones, and had popcorn. I enjoyed the film but my dad didn’t get it. When it finished he was like “so what was the plot?” I avoid cinemas as much as possible due to all the high cal snacks and food. This was the first time I’d gone in like 2 years, so I allowed the popcorn.
the guy I had the two dates with, let’s call him Eric, messaged me all day which was nice. He doesn’t live in London but works in London, so I’m not sure if I’ll see him over the weekend, or if it’ll be an after work thing next week.
I’m not too sure what I’ll get up to over the weekend other than gym and puppy walks. I need to grocery shop as I’ve only got breakfast in the kitchen.
Hope you’ve all had a nice Friday night xx
