Good morning and thank you for joining me on this Sunday. It feels like an eternity since I’ve written a proper post. The last two weeks had flew by in a blink of an eye and I am ashamed to admit I haven’t been focusing in blogging these last two week, I’ve been focusing on losing weight.
Ever since I got my Fitbit two weeks ago, I’ve logged about 138,000 steps (about 54 miles), and nearly 24,000 calories burned. I know, I was a bit shocked too when I added up the numbers but this is what I get for walking an average of 10,000 steps per day.
The best part is I am finally out of the 117-118-pound-zone which I’ve been stuck since late last year. I believe this is the biggest accomplishment of the last two weeks.
It wasn’t an easy process. It’s more of a mental process. I’m constantly at battle with my mind. “You’re hungry. It’s time to eat.” My mind always seemed to tell me. “No!” I would tell it rebellious. “One more hour.”
I had to keep myself under the strictest diet I’ve ever been – counting every one of the calories I’ve put into my mouth, weighing my food and logging everything I’ve eaten to make sure I don’t go over my daily calories allowance of 1,200. It’s like getting $1,200 to spend every day. If I go over, then I’ll have pay it with my own money.
Last week was the hardest because the week before was Thanksgiving and I was still trying to get the hang of this diet. It’s getting better though as I am trying to remember – this isn’t a temporary diet, this is a lifestyle.
As for work, well, annoying lecture-giver Mr. COO had gone back to China and the office is once again quiet. On the other hand, the company got shut down by the Fire Department last Friday and will remain shut down on Monday. Miss HR told me I have to go to her home on Monday instead of the office. I’m thinking, how are seven people is supposed to use one computer to work when we’re nowhere close to the factory?
I wanted to ask for a day-off but I couldn’t, not after the argument we got into last week.
Okay, here’s the situation: in the employee handbook, it read, from year 1-5, employees gets 10 days vacation. Miss HR seems to think right now is year 0. So no one gets vacation.
This is so unfair. I mean, everyone in the company got vacation and time off except me. Once an employee begins working for a company, they would be starting year 1, right? There’s no such thing as year 0 in employment!
I so wanted to argue so more but I wasn’t interested in attracting unwanted attention from other nosy employees. I’m not sure what to do but I’ll probably stay home on Monday. What am I supposed to do there anyway? I can’t access any of my files. At least by staying home, I can continue my job search.
I’m starting to think I’m too soft and must be meaner, resolve matters more aggressively. I’m so done with these people taking advantage of me. They will only talk to me when they need help while shushing me when I need help.
Anyway, I’d like to thank you once again for joining me on this Sunday and hope to join again next weekend. Until then, please enjoy the following slideshow of the pictures I took in the last two weeks.
