1st attempt – 4 minutes (LOL)
2nd – 5 minutes
3rd – 7 min (seriously, that’s all it takes for my knees to feel like jelly!)
Apparently I have cartilage issues, so elliptical should be a low impact way to get going. We’ll see. It is definitely boring being on a machine making repetitive motions, which is probably half the reason for the short times, above. Even listening to music doesn’t do it for me really. But the last time, I was listening to an engaging podcast, and it made the time fly much faster. So that’ll be my new trick!
And I’ve been doing the occasional set of 20 pushups. I could/should do them more often – it doesn’t tkae long at all, the problem is just remembering to! I’m gonna go do them right now.
But I don’t have much of a life.
I was pretty down last week. One of the interviews didn’t go so well. But it was for a job that seemed really stressful, the interviewers seems stressed out, and no one was even willing to estimate the work hours… other than “more than 40h/week”, and there were no slower periods throughout the year. So pardon my lack of enthusiasm, LOL.
But anyway yeah, I have just started going to a couple of meetup group activities this week, and people were friendly, so I enjoyed that. It’s a start!
I am starting to get a little worried about ever finding a job. I know I’m being melodramatic, and I need to just buckle down and apply everywhere, but for some reason I’m resisting that. Self-sabotage? Who knows.
Yep, a couple times in the past 10 years I have started to make a profile on whatever site, but never got around to finishing it or putting a picture up.
But now that I am 37 and moving to a new city, I figured it would be one way to meet people anyway. I’m not going to take it super-seriously.
But anyway, I made my complete profile one Friday, put 5 pictures on, and the next day 2 people had contacted me. I mean, decent-seeming guys, even. Both were far away, but one was at least in the same country and coming to my city within 2 weeks. So we went for coffee.
Then we had dinner after that. Seems like a great guy so far.
I am really surprised, I have to say. I have one or two girlfriends on dating sites who seem to have had some pretty bad experiences. So maybe I’m just lucky. But it’s early days yet. Only time will tell, LOL.
Anyway, I am more focused on finding an awesome job at the moment :-)
