Well, managed to get down to the usual Tuesday evening Zumba class, so that's a nice bit of exercise right there. Will be interesting to see what I can pull off tomorrow.

Still haven't written anything - unsurprisingly. :-(

Oi vey...

Today I was meant to get some exercise seeing as it's my day off, and do a spot of writing.

I failed at both - just sat at the computer most of the day eating chocolate. :-(

Obviously I'm not cracked up to be a writer. I don't have the passion for it. If I was a halfway driven writer I could have written almost three quarters of my million words since I started writing in 2007. Instead, I only have my very first NaNoWriMo novel and three half-hearted stories. And a site "devoted" to my stories ... with nothing on it.


Now I want to sit down and eat chocolate to make myself feel better again.

Well, I need to head out now, so I'm out of time to write and I'm out of time to exercise. I really need to stop making piss-poor excuses and just write. I even have a sticker that says "You've got better things to do!" on my monitor so I can see it when I'm piss farting around on the 'net.

Blargh... didn't even come close this week.

Managed to get in a jog on Monday and went to Zumba on Tuesday as normal. However, the rest of the week was a wash - either due to me getting home tired, having things that needed to get done urgently when I got home or just getting home really late (I did a 12 hour day yesterday).

So far, I don't believe I've lost even a quarter inch off my waist - hardly surprising since I haven't been exercising as much as I want to.

Well, there's always next week. Normally I'd say "start today", but today is Sunday.

Got my groove on

Tuesday night, managed to get down to Zumba as planned.

That means managed to get some good exercise on Saturday, good job on Monday and now a good workout at Zumba on Tuesday. Wednesday will be the hard one, as I may need to work late. But at the least I ought to jump onto the exercise bike for half an hour or so before dinner.

Looking good so far....

Second Day

Well, doing good so far! Managed to go for a good jog for around an hour this morning. Though I may have gotten a little sunburnt.

I tried using the built-in stopwatch function on my phone but it cuts out if you exit the app and do something else (like check sms). Had a look at some track-my-exercise apps but didn't see one that I liked. Either too complex or do things that I don't want (why would it need access to my contacts?).

However, have to keep up the exercise now. Zumba tomorrow night, so Wednesday will be the interesting day.

New year, new month

And some old story.

Zero updates for January... :(

Here's some new items from my life:
  1. I've gotten off Facebook (mostly). I deleted my photos and most of my content off there now that it's going to be a publicly traded company. I still keep a presence on there and check on it since that's where everyone is.

  2. I've started exercising again (again [again]). I've lost track of the number of times I've re-started exercising. Had a nice job on Saturday, will do another job on Monday and then Zumba on Tuesday.

  3. Valentines was a complete wash again, keeping my unblemished record of failure. On the flip side, I worked 13 hours on Val's day, so at least I had an excuse.

  4. I have a smart phone, so I'll see if I can find an App to help track my jogging.

Really? That's all the new news for the last two and a bit months? No wonder I'm single. Might have to have a crack at updating Loneverse again.
