So another challenge is upon us.  I have vowed to myself to make this challenge one of my best.  I am on the TNT eating plan and I have started to train for the half Ironman in September.  My wife and I also have a side challenge going for who can lose the most weight (by %) prior to my cousin’s wedding in May.  So far she has jumped out ahead and is kicking my butt.  THis is why I have decided to sign up and attempt another 5% WLC.

Today I slept in a bit but still made it to the gym by 5:30.  I had a good RT training session where I was doing low weight and high rep sets (3 x 30)  then went off to a spin class.  I am not planning on counting the cardio minutes towards the Insane 15,000.  Tonight my wife and I are planning to go rock climbing for a few hours but I don’t think I will count that as anything as there is too much down time while the other person is climbing.

I am still waiting for a call from the HR department to let me know what is happening with the Fire interview I had, it is very very stressful and every time the phone rings my heart skips a beat and then sinks low, this is definitely an emotional roller coaster, and I feel really bad for my wife having to deal with me.  I know that they are planning to conduct interviews until Friday so I am actually expecting to hear something next week.   I was hoping that they would pick from the bunch of guys that they considered to be “preferred” quickly and then conduct the remaining interviews to fill the any spots they had not filled yet.  The plan is to hire 20 guys and the start date would be May 2nd.  After the interviews there are 2 more processes we would have to go through prior to getting hired.  The problem I am having is that I am not motivated at work and I can’t stay focused on the job I am doing.  Well hopefully I should know soon enough, I just can’t wait.  I feel like this is part of my life plan and that I am ment to get hired this time around.  I hope I am right.
