Good morning and happy Monday!
I’ve been getting a little frustrated lately due to unemployment. For weeks, things were fine but then after I updated my address, they put a stop payment indicator on my weeks that I’ve certified. I submitted my proof of identity a couple times and I’m still waiting to be paid. It’s been over four weeks now. Next Monday, I have to certify again and I’m just hoping this issue is resolved soon. I have bills to pay and I don’t wanna run out of money.
I will be looking for a job as well because the unemployment was due to end at the end of July. I could do Uber Eats Delivery…that would bring in some cash. So I will be considering that. It’d be better than nothing.
On another note, I weighed in this morning and I’m only down .6 for the week. I am a little discouraged because I’ve been really trying. I’ve been exercising more and keeping a food journal. I’ve been staying within my calories and getting in the necessary amount of protein. I hope next week is a better weigh in. Although at least I didn’t have a gain so that’s good. I have a long term goal of getting below 200 lbs. Right now, I’m weighing 262.4. I have 63.4 lbs to lose to get to 199 and I’d be ecstatic with that. My first mini goal is to get to 246. That’d bring me to my lowest weight in adulthood. I invested in an Apple Watch to help track my fitness. I really like it so far.
A couple of NSV’s (non-scale victories) I want to mention. Last week, I actually wore a swimsuit to the lake. Honestly, it had been years since I’d done that. I was always too embarrassed because of my size. I felt pretty good though. Another NSV is that I got myself a pair of sandals. I would never wear sandals before because I just thought my feet were fat and ugly. But I wore them and enjoyed it…although I need to get used to them. They kinda hurt my feet after a bit. I’m so used to wearing my socks and tennis shoes. I’m pretty proud of these NSV’s.
Yesterday was Father’s Day. My dad has been gone since 2011. I miss him. I hope all you dads out there had a nice enjoyable day and got spoiled by your loved ones.
I still think of finding love a lot. I just feel ready for it. My mind has been on one person a lot. Only God knows and I’m trying to be patient. I feel so ready for that chapter. I’m not going to push anything. I trust God to make my path straight (Proverbs 3:5-6).
Well I suppose that’s it for now. I hope you are all well. Take care of yourselves.
Peace ~ Love ~ Happiness
