Lazy, uneventful work day today.
Team lead was supposed to start his two week+ vacation tomorrow, but called off today. I guess I don’t blame him. The lead engineer lady, who I’ve written about before, wondered if he was off interviewing somewhere. I mean, she’s probably not far off. Multiple times, in closed door discussions, TL has talked about how his brother’s company wants him really bad, and that he didn’t see a future for the project past next year.
The work we do is kind of rough at times. Half the team travels for long periods at a time. Thankfully, I don’t have to do that.
TL being gone for more than two weeks means I’ll have to keep busy somehow. Fat chance?
I think I may have made two smallish friendships at work. Friendship is a strong word, more like I have consistently had enjoyable conversations with two people, and they seem friendly. Would be nice to have people to chat with at work on a more regular basis. It’s so common to come in to work, barely speak to anyone, then go home. Feels lonely sometimes. I’m not always a shut-in. I need to keep my expectations in check- having conversations sometimes doesn’t mean they’re friends. The biggest thing is to see if they’re willing to talk to me when others are around. That’s often a thing.
Weight loss is sluggish but noticeable. I’m able to wear some of my smaller shirts again. Weighed in at 214 today, which.. I guess makes me feel good, since hubby has been cooking large dinners that may or may not be totally keto-friendly. He’s not a stickler for carb counting. But who am I to complain about his yummy food?
I feel like I’m doing keto better this time. I’m not losing weight at an incredible pace. I’m losing it more slowly and with less stress; this means I’m not as likely to go nuts and eat all the things once I’m to my goal weight. No yoyoing this time.
I’ve been pondering what I want to do once I get closer to my goal weight. I want to start lifting again, focusing on powerlifting. Maybe setting some sort of seasonal bulking/cutting routine would be in order. I love the idea of me with a lean, built frame. I’ve always wanted to do martial arts as well, but the whole human-interaction-and-contact thing triggers my anxiety. Maybe I’d be better off doing some slow, solo form of martial art like Tai Chi. Soothing and good for you. Involves good muscular control as well.
Another thing. I’ve been feverishly following the cryptocurrency markets lately. Watching the price of bitcoin skyrocket has been gripping, putting my emotions on a roller coaster. I have a very small amount of bitcoin, but enough to the point where if I sold it I’d make a nice little profit. The market has been largely stable the last two days, leading me to agonize over selling. I’ve seen roughly 50/50 arguments that a crash is imminent (bubble) or that it’s going to soar up to 20k and beyond. I don’t know what to think.
Anywho. Eeryone have a good one.
