SpecialSundae learns how to have fun


SpecialSundae

Recommended Posts

Okay, so those of you who have been following my challenges know that I've not had the best time of things of late. Between illness and misfortune, I'm still sitting at a much lower total than I'd like and feeling kinda down because I don't really have a coach who bucks me up when things are going badly. Things might turn around after this weekend but just feeling resigned to getting there and making a total rather than setting the world on fire.

 

Anyway, as an antidote to this, I have decided that the next challenge needs to be about having fun!

 

I don't have a coach after the weekend, so either I'll be on my own or I'll be starting up with a new coach. Either way, I need to let loose a bit.

 

So... Here are the goals!

 

  1. Eat, Drink and Be Merry
    NO food tracking. Weight tracking is allowable (and I'll log it as usual) but food will not be measured or judged. I need to have a bit of fun!
  2. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
    Make time to go and have fun with friends. I would like to do the following this month:
    1. Go skating at an outdoor rink (and I'm dragging @TeeCam with me)
      pat_and_a_cat_Edinburgh_s_Christmas_St_A
    2. Go for mulled wine at the markets

    3. Eat one of the gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches that I've been lusting after

    4. Arrange a girls lifting meet-up

    5. Attend my friend's Squats, Cake and Gin party

    6. Arrange a local Nerd-Up
    7. See Star Wars: Rogue One
      rogueone_onesheeta_1000_309ed8f6.jpeg?re
    8. See Fantastic Beasts
      Fantastic-Beasts-And-Where-to-Find-Them.
    9. Eat mince pies

    10. Progress through World of Final Fantasy
      3148217-world-of-final-fantasy-review-pr
  3. Push It
    I mean go harder... Nah, I want to get a bench PB so, even if I don't get it in competition, I'm going to go for an over 80kg bench at some point this month.
  4. Spin, Spin, Spin
    Get back to pole dancing at least once and clear out the spare room so I can get my own pole to practice. I've missed pole for ages so I really want to get back to doing that!

Heck yeah! Having fun is VERY important and I find when I have fun, I have my best challenges :). I'm excited about Rogue One, Fantastical Beasts and I still need to see Dr. Strange!! The ice skate rink looks really cool too.

 

Close out the year strong, Sundae!

Oh yeah, a wee happy from the weekend... I finally hit four figures on followers on Instagram! Not a huge deal to many people, but it's moving in the right direction and will hopefully help towards getting a sponsor for Commonwealths next year.

 

 

 

Make that 1009 followers now ;)  I totally understand being an Instagramer myself. I need to work on my posting though...lol. I'm way to inconsistent.

I really shouldn't complain, I hate the cold.

 

There are soooo many good movies coming out this christmas season. You forgot Moana and Sing though. Because at heart, I really never matured past 12... Anyway, following!

Okay... Plans for fun coming up after Saturday's comp:

  • Booked tickets for the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff on Sunday. :D Also going to go and visit the Ianto Jones shrine whilst we're staying about 5 minutes walk away.
  • Booked tickets for next week's "Odeon Screen Unseen" (movie preview) on Monday. Clues so far are below so please share your guesses as to what the movie might be!
    • Clue 1: When it's showtime, there's no place for a bad penny.
    • Clue 2: A dinosaur could take a zombie.
    • Clue 3: Look out for an experienced archer.
    • I'm kinda hoping it's Passengers (dinosaurs for Chris Pratt, archery for Jennifer Lawrence... not sure about the zombies or the first clue, though!)
  • Got a pair of premium tickets for the filming of a celebrity edition of "Robot Wars" on Tuesday.
  • Got my work Christmas party on Wednesday. :) 

I think that's enough to start off with!
