My toe is no longer the strange purple colour. But it is still damned painful. How long does it take for the pain to go away? I can still not really wear shoes without pain and I am a bit afraid that it will remain sensitive forever, making wearing rugby boots a painful affair.
Went to an extra line-out training last night. It was quite useful but my toe was killing me by the end of the session.
I have let myself go last week when I was unable to go to the gym. Drank loads of wine, ate loads of bad food. So yesterday I went back and tried my trainers on. I still can not wear them. So I could not run on the treadmill as you are not allowed without shoes. So I cycled for 30 minutes and worked on the cross-trainer for 15 minutes. On my socks.
I don’t understand how weight works. Sunday night I weighed 73.2 kilos. And last night, at the same time, with the same clothes off, I weighed 74.5 kilos. How is that possible? And with a body fat percentage of 36.7, I am ‘overfat’ according to my fabulous weight/bodyfat/water index scales. Oh well, now that my scales give me 3 figures when I stand on them, at least 1 of them surely is bound to come down at some point?
Sent off 5 job applications over the weekend. Hopefully I will get an interview for at least one of them. However, after I sent one of, I noticed a typo in my cover letter that I had not spotted after re-reading it twice. Humbug. It has bugged me all day.
Other question: what do you do with interviews from an agency that you really do not fancy going to? At the moment, I go to whatever they offer because I am afraid that refusing the interview means they will never contact me again but most of the time, I don’t really want the jobs they put me forward for, nor do I ever get any decent feedback about the interview. So what to do? Refuse the interviews? What if I go and get offered one of the jobs that I don’t really want?
I have decided that I am not prepared to move ‘sideways’. Yes I would like to leave my current job but there is no use to move to a similar job for similar money because that will make me unhappy in a few months time again. I guess I am better off holding out for the job I really like.
But I am getting very tired of being thrown little snippets of hope and then nothing happens. I floated the idea of making promotion films that we can use at exhibitions. Seeing I have experience in producing, filming and editing, it would be a cheap thing to do for the company and it is something I would really enjoy. I was told it was a good idea and that they would get back to me about it……still not heard anything 3 weeks later.
