Recap of the Last Several Days

The following posts will include, to the best of my memory, the last 6 days including today of my life. Exciting things are happening which is partially why I got behind on my daily routines. I am also going to include only a daily devotional that is short versus my daily reading.

Thursday May 18:
Workout: joined my class at work for the sports conditioning class I teach

Nutrition: I know I had pizza at the meeting I was at for several hours (provided by host)

Daily Agenda: I had an interview at 8 am for a PE teacher job, located about 50 minutes from my house. It was with a committee of teachers and admins. From there I drove another hour to my meeting in SE Houston. The meeting was for representatives of each school that participates in GCIC Sports day events. I then drove about another 50 minutes to work to finish off my work day. In all, I basically encompassed the entire Houston are from the Beltway around.

Nutrition: do not remember exactly although I maintained my IF hours

Daily Agenda: I received a second interview with the principals at the school for the PE job. It went well and I believe it has promise. I visited my dad for a while to swap out on some accessory items for the wardrobe. I spend the rest of the day cleaning the house and organizing around the garage and other areas. Finally got my haircut.

Daily Agenda: Yard work. We went to Kat’s birthday party (Ryan’s daughter). Shelby’s friend Kortney came to visit. The girls went to hang out with some other friends. I met up with my friend Josue. We went to two different breweries. The ladies met us later on that evening. Somehow we decided to go back to my house and play beer pong. Terrible idea if you ask me. I stayed up late, but did not get too tipsy. I was more tired the next day than anything else.
