Week 18 Summary


There has been slacking in all aspects of life.

Diet & Fitness

This week I really wanted to get started on the second round of my P90X workouts. I thought of starting it on the Monday but (this is going to sound like an excuse) each time day I tried to do the workouts something came up. Whether it was that I had to run errands for mum or take care of some legal documentation for my case.

So I’ve decided to start the program next week. For some reason I have a tendency to feel better about starting such things on Mondays. I don’t know why I feel that way but it puts me in the right mindset.

In terms of diet, the Dukan diet isn’t going that great at the moment. I’ve decided to restart the Attack phase next week to get rid of the weight I have regained over the past 3 or so weeks from eating the brioches that I made and also all the foods eaten while on holidays and celebrating birthdays, etc.

So here’s to a fresh start next week.


Well I raised the courage yet again to give the Manager of this University a call and he mentioned that he had not heard from any of the interested parties at the University. He mentioned that I should call him at the end of the week to check in but I am really starting to think that this may be a bit of a dead end (for now anyways).

I’ve been a bit deflated in the ‘applying for work’ department. I don’t know why because I am ready to go back to work and I am eager to start earning some moolah again but I have just been slack in terms of sending my resume in. I think getting all those rejections emails and calls has somewhat seized me up a bit.

What do you do to get motivated when you’re stuck?

Week 17 Summary

Hair straightening Diet & Fitness 

I haven't been exercising as much this week as I had my hair straightened and didn't want to wreck with sweat after spending $200 getting it done. Though I did squeeze in a good C25K workout prior to getting my hair done. It was so great to complete Week 2 of the program.


Well it seems like I can't even get a job that I am temping at. I received the call and was advised that I had not been successful as the applicants that they had were quite strong and that there was someone else more qualified for the position. I seriously do not know what I am doing wrong. I mean I must be completely flunking the interview portion of the application process because I was a perfect candidate until that moment. It was such a complete downer the day I found out.

The University Manager got in contact with me and told me that he had provided my resume to the different faculties and that they were impressed but requested an updated resume to convey that I was no longer employed. So I updated my resume and sent it to him to distribute throughout the University. Now I wait.
