Things men don't know about women.

 

Today's wee bit of amusement. I love Caitlin Moran. Her wordsmithery tickles me.

 

I also love Caitlin Moran and that's an excellent article.

 

Hey, have mentioned how all the best girls come from Wolverhampton? :D

Still struggling to get past the malaise that's been dragging me down over the last week or so. I've been eating generally okay, and managing to do bodyweight stuff at home, but last night was the first time I've managed to get myself motivated to go to the gym to do any cardio since Saturday. That's four days in a row that I just couldn't get myself up enough to go, which just ain't gonna cut it. Meh.

 

I've got an extended weekend coming up. I have annual leave days that I need to use before the end of the month, so I'm off work Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week. Hopefully the break from work will energise me a little. I'll try switching my routine up a little bit and maybe head straight to the gym in the morning after the kids go to school, get some morning endorphins going.

Sorry to hear the malaise still abounds, have you considered trying something new and out of the ordinary to shake it? Can you take a little road trip by yourself one of the days? It doesn't have to be far if you need to get back in time for the kids but a little time alone somewhere new could do you the world of good. My sister was coming out of a major case of the malaise so she went to Rhyl on her own. I don't know what it was about that trip. Maybe she found herself, or maybe there is no place - be it geographically, physically or emotionally - worse than Rhyl but her life has been an upward journey since then. 

 

In short, go to Rhyl, whatever it is that's getting you down won't seem so bad in comparison.

Sorry you have been stuck with the malaise.  There seems to be bit of that going around.  Perhaps it's the weather?   

 

I like Def's advice only I would suggest someplace nice that makes you feel pretty.  ;)

Walmart makes me feel pretty (and smart, and wealthy), but it's definitely not nice. :D

 

Walmart might suck enough to be on par with those shitty place Def mentioned that I know nothing about AND make one feel pretty.  Double whammy.  To Walmart it is.

What's not to love about that? Ocean? I love the ocean. Beach? I'm San Diegan, beach is my native habitat. Fun? I'm always up for fun. Fair? Well, it's Britain so you'd expect people to be pale. :D

The clown does inspire a bit of hate-rage, though. Maybe that's why the place is trashed.

I was being a little unfair to Rhyl, it's not quite as bad as that picture suggests which make it look like something from a Stephen King novel.

This is also a picture of Rhyl. I just have a lot of rage towards the place since it's one of the closest beaches to me (being in North Wales) and many a rainy, sad day was spent there in my youth.

Oh great. Now in my head, I can hear Def singing, "Won't you take me to... Monkey Town?"

Managed to grind out a decent workout tonight, despite some family nonsense.

Workouts are back on track. Now I'm showered, shaved, and I feel prettier than Rhyl on a wet October afternoon.

 

Got rehearsals for the show this afternoon, and an evening of catching up on all the "box sets"meta I've fallen behind on over the last few weeks.

 

Oh, and venison sausages.

How are things going Scotty? I was wondering why you hadn't updated in a while but then I saw this (NSFW) but let me know your coordinates and I will come and cut you free.

 

Because I am such a good friend, I will never mention the most embarrassing part of this (the Crocs) again. <5

All is well, I just haven't been spending a lot of time on the 'puterwebz while I've been off work. Back in the office this morning (sadly), so (relatively) normal service will be resumed.

Belated Mid-Challenge Update

 

Back in the office this morning after a nice few days off to use the last of my annual leave. It definitely cemented how much I'm not feeling my job. Getting motivated enough to get up and come in this morning was... challenging.

 

Scores on the doors, before I get to what I've been up to.

 

Cross Trainer: 4747 (67.8%, 447 ahead of plan)

Burpees: 395 (79%, 75 ahead)

Squats: 395 (79%, 75 ahead)

Chocolate Free: 16/16

Days in Deficit: 16/16

 

Okay, so I made the most of my time off to get back on track after slacking off a little last week. Got early morning workouts in on Monday and Tuesday, and made the most of reasonably pleasant weather (especially on Monday) by following up the workouts with a 5 mile walk round the lake with SWFS and our dogs. Endomondo reported both of those walks as burning 750 calories each (which I'm not counting towards anything). Had some other things to do yesterday, so no long walks, but I did keep up the gym routine to get ahead of plan.

 

Rehearsals are continuing for Inside Out, and I believe all 750 tickets are now gone.

Got another good workout in last night, despite the best efforts of some bastard form of sinus/migraine, and the sneaky little voice in my head telling me it would be okay to skip it. Going to try to work out tonight and tomorrow afternoon, which would give me an unheard of six straight days at the gym. I'm not sure how much I'll be able to do next week, with the show starting next Friday. I have a feeling we'll be rehearsing most nights between now and then, so it makes sense to get as close to my targets as I can while I have the time.

 

Dinner last night was grilled venison steaks, which I haven't had in ages. So damn good.

So today was the first full dress rehearsal for Inside Out. I was painted a very vivid shade of red. Which didn't wash off. I had to drive home painted and go for a bath. Thankfully the traffic wasn't bad or I'd have looked like I had the world's worst case of road rage.

 

Also, the new forum is a pile of moist arseholes.
