Staying healthy

Dear WordPress,

I went for a 9 km run today which was really cool. Now to some of you, that may seem like a lot or really little, but for me…

For me it was perfect. It’s the best I’ve felt in a long time. This is the best I’ve felt in a long time. There will be definitely be more hour plus long runs in the future for me.

Especially before school starts. There’s a lot of tension I’d like to diffuse before I’d start school, and it’s hard when I’ve got a job dialogue to worry about.

Not that I’m complaining about having to talk about all the things I can work on whilst at work, it’s just nerve wrecking.

I feel like I should be far more nervous about school than a job dialogue. Oh well. I’m sure I’ll be alright.

But on the bright side, an hour long run today was nice, there will be yoga for me tomorrow morning and then another run on Tuesday and hopefully my papers for my dialogue will be all filled out by the end of the evening and everything I’m worried about that’s work related will be done by the end of the month.

I will be fine.

 

Thanks for reading wordpress!

Old Habits die hard

And my habits have apparently died very hard.

Whatever plans I had to write every other day or to be healthy and go to the gym on the regular basis went out the window ages ago.

Do I have an excuse? Yes. Should I be using it? No, no I shouldn’t be. I should be capable of getting up early in order to go for a work out every week. I haven’t worked out consistently for a long while now.

I am so capable of doing this and shouldn’t be on wordpress complaining about how I’m not doing more of it on a regular basis.

And every time I say to myself, ‘Oh, I’m going to wake up early tomorrow morning, it’s gonna happen…”

It hasn’t happened yet.

I almost don’t want to do with myself because whenever I try, it doesn’t work. I also consistently never go to bed early which could also coincide with my current work schedule, but let’s hope I can get it back under control soon. I would love to be able to get back to working out (if not early tomorrow morning, then Friday.)

Thanks for reading WordPress!

Knitting, music and rain oh my!

Trigger warning – talk of writing about suicide and mental illness.

On the very brief subject of knitting, I really want to start a new project on something other than scarves.

But then I don’t have enough practice with scarves either so, I might just stick with scarves until I feel comfortable enough to start something new.

I also leave for Germany in two weeks oh my god.

I can’t believe this is happening. I’m so excited yet kinda sad at the same time.

I don’t want to say goodbye to Middle Earth yet.

I don’t even want to say see you later! Because I will see Middle Earth later.

It just won’t be the same as immersing myself in the world whilst there is new material to work with.

So. We’ll see. otherwise oh my god, I can’t believe this is happening.

I can not wait.

Adventure here I come.

Also, I’ve decided what it is I’m going to work on for Camp NaNoWriMo this year.

It’s gonna be a bunch of little stuff for fanfiction and projects and stuff.  Like,  there’s this original short story that I want to write about how the world mourns when someone commits suicide.

Brief touches on depression and struggling with it so… yeah. Portfolio ideas man.

That does remind me to start drawing though omg.

I would like to start drawing again too. But there is also knitting and my coloring book that I also use as creative outlets. Not to mention the gif making that I do whenever I feel like going to the library.

I have got so many creative outlets it’s ridiculous.

I also spend so much time not actually doing them so you’d think I would spend that time doing things like actually staying active for once.

But I don’t know how long it I can stand staying at the gym without it feeling borderline obsessive.

I mean, a couple hours at the gym every other day isn’t gonna kill me.

And with summer coming up, I could use my bike instead. So.

We’ll see.

Anyways, thanks for reading WordPress, I’ll see you next time.

Camp NaNoWriMo

So Camp NaNoWriMo is in 24 days (my trip to Germany starts in 21) and I am ready for neither.

I DO have a writing book that I DO use. Sometimes. It’s just a book for character development, plot line stuff but I might just end up writing fanfiction for Camp NaNoWriMo which is fine.

It just sucks because I want to be able to write Original stuff but it never quite works out the way I want to.

We shall see.

Also, I am now officially down to 149 lbs, which is great. Now I just have to keep it off and continue working on eating more veggies than carbs and protein.

It’ll do me some good.

And maybe bring some guacamole into the mix.

Have it for breakfast with eggs or whatever. And a banana.

I have also started running again. And by running I mean training to run 5 k and do yoga at the same time. Do recover or whatever.

And that has been me and fitness. Not much. Quick update.

Thanks for reading and I will talk to you soon!
