This week has dragged on for me. It didn’t help that most of the “important” stuff I have to do dried up on Monday. Monday! What is going on here? It’s getting worse and worse with each passing week. Right now I’m sitting on something to complete it later. This is to make it look like I’m actually doing something. I’ve been slacking since I got back from lunch.
I can’t leave until 16:00.
I don’t like doing this, but what choice do I have? There’s the internet, but that gets dry fast. Stuff on my phone ends with me refreshing Twitter a bunch of times. I could read that book I brought, but the chances of getting caught slacking increase with that.
I want the day to be over. Deep down, I know that Monday and next week will be exactly the same. Though I pray it isn’t.
Lifting has been going well. I decided to up my squat by 5 lbs after doing 115 lbs for a month. Overhead press, bench press, deadlift, and rows are the same as before. The OHP weight I had to drop to 65 lbs due to the knot/tightness in my shoulder from that massage. That has healed though. I do feel that I’m neglecting my core/abs, but the difficulties of ab work doesn’t make me anxious to do it. A hole in your side can do that. There is a possibility that I can ask Redhead for some help since that type of thing is her milieu. I should ask the next time I see her. I don’t doubt that she’ll help me out.
A good sign of this consistent lifting is that I’ve filled out a bit. My jeans tightening up at my thighs, and the arm holes of my shirts filling out. For weight, I’ve been fluctuating between 151 and 154. Hopefully, I’ll be seeing some of the weight gain I’ve had before as I build more muscle. As long as I take it easy and be careful, I won’t hurt myself again. I don’t want another setback.
I haven’t been doing much lately after work besides lifting. Most nights I’m too tired to do anything more than reading, playing a game, or watching YouTube. With the weather warming up and the pool on its way to opening up, I’ll be outside much more. Hopefully, this summer won’t be as hot as last year. Getting into my car on a sunny Saturday or Sunday was like getting into an oven. I miss having a garage.
Trip-wise, I’ll be heading out to Hawaii with the rest of my family to see my brother. That should be a good time, barring anything that happened like last time that kept us from meeting up. I’m not looking forward to the flight though. I should bring some melatonin with me to help me sleep on the flight out and back.
It’s also Good Friday too, one last Friday in Lent with I have to abstain from eating meat. It always ends up where I have a severe craving for a burger or steak on Lenten Fridays. My parents are coming down for the weekend too, so it will be nice to see them. I’m not sure what we’ll be doing this weekend, but we’ll figure something out. My Dad will want to go to the casino and try his luck at the dice (I still have $100 left from Vegas, so I will too). They’re leaving Sunday afternoon. It should be a nice weekend.
Now, all that needs to happen is for me to get out of work.
