It’s Sunday (‘no shit’ I hear you cry), well yes ok. I took Friday and Saturday completely off from exercise, and was feeling sluggish and lazy this morning. My plan was to lie in and maybe, just maybe venture out to kickboxing.
To get me in the mood I put on some BAMMA to watch some cage fighting. It worked, I was sitting on the sofa thinking, I could just have a lazy one, then I realised, no I couldn’t. I needed to kickbox, I needed to get out and do something physical.
My regime has been slipping, i’ve been having the extra half hour in bed and skipping the swim, not doing as many weights, the last couple of weeks i’ve let a bit of a sniffle push me off the treadmill. I am never going to be in the kind of shape I want to be in if I don’t push myself, so tomorrow it’s up at 5:15 and off to the gym so I can really get the work out I need, then ten minutes in the pool to stretch out. Of course it’s Monday tomorrow which is Judo in the evening too. I also need to start packing proper lunches too, get my eating back on track. It’s all good and well baking myself some shortbread this afternoon (which I am) but I need to get off the crisps and extra nibbles during the day.
You all don’t need to listen to this, I am just talking
to myself really, but I am need another kick, i’ve been slipping and it’s not on. I have four months left to shift 2 and a half stone,totally doable, especially given I lost the first six stone in about seven months, so I can do this. Grrr! This is my game face people, get used to it.
But back to my original question, must there be more to life? I love my job, oh I have ‘don’t wanna’ days, but overwhelmingly it’s a great job. I love my gym time, my martial arts, the whole regime, it feels so good!! I like to bake, I enjoy my friends, and I have the blogging, both here and Un:Bound, and gods, Un:Bound alone could take 8 hours a day.
I sit here with fat cat by my shoulder, ginger cat on my feet, in the knowledge that there are plenty of people I can email, call, tweet and in other ways turn to for company and conversation. Sure, it would be nice to be nearer town, or to have some of the blogosphere people living closer so I could hang out more often. Some of my best friends are so far away I have to block out whole weekends instead of just droppping by for dinner and a movie, some of the people I care about i’ve never met. The sun is shining and life is perfect. I don’t think I want much more than this.
