Tomorrow I start going to the gym properly, following the 5x5 program. It's just another excuse to say that my schedule has been too busy over the summer, because it really hasn't, but I think the regularity of school - the rigid timetable, the fact that I can redirect myself to the gym early in the AM (thus avoiding muscleheads!) - will help me stick to the plan.

I'm not going to be all gung-ho aggressive about it. Like Howell, I sometimes have to deny to myself that I'm doing anything in order for anything to get done.

... in October! Who says I can't?

I've been trying to motivate myself into picking up running again, which has gone about as well as can be expected when one considers that I live in 3 houses over the course of an average week and I'm working the first half-term of my new teaching job.

But I digress.

From Monday, I'm finally going to get my butt into gear and start running. It's silly thinking of it as a chore, when the actual running side of it I really enjoy (even when it's cold - less so when there's rain). Besides, I would like to get fit so in the new year I can start CaniX training with one/some of sister's dogs. I think that'll be a great laugh.

Plus, I'll have more energy again. And maybe my pants won't be as tight, LOL.

Appropriate icon is appropriate. Happy splashy dog!

Met up with [livejournal.com profile] neutrallized yesterday, as she is studying in the UK. Woo! It was fun. There was consumption of non-chickeny Nandos, and spiced apple and almond pie from Ely (and also a quick stop at Ely cathedral, which is tres awesome but charges entry wtf.

Quote of the day (from [livejournal.com profile] neutrallized): You should have a baby!

I am returned from the land of sickness. Slept most of my time in hospital. Attending physician wanted to do a bunch of tests (chest x-ray, heart tracker, urine test, etc.) but he was just a baby and his seniors told him to release me.

Released I am.

Slice of toast then bed.

Bucket list: ride in an ambulance [check].

Thank you [livejournal.com profile] shei for calling me. Made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :)
fadagaski: (post lacks insight)
Passed out at work. Ambulance came. Blood pressure was 81/35 or something. Apparently that's low? Admitted to hospital. Bored and tired. Cannula drip aches like a bitch but blood pressure back up to 101 after fluids. Discharge soon? 
fadagaski: (ff7 cloud sleepy)
I am procrastinating on a whole bunch of stuff so: first post of the New Year! Here are some things:

1) I lost my voice over Christmas due to a cold, from Dec 22nd to Dec 28th.
2) Now I have another virus of some kind: swollen glands and general malaise. I feel like crap.
3) There are two essays that I need to start reading and planning for, but oh my God how much do I not have the energy right now?
4) How come, when writing, that the words flow right up until about 21k? And then it's like OMG U CAN NO RITE. I have to finish [livejournal.com profile] shei's fic and I'm filling something on the [livejournal.com profile] glee_kink_meme but just uuuuuugh.
5) When I don't feel like mildly tempered death, I will take up running again this year. That's my resolution (incidentally, the same as last year, but this time I might keep it up for the full 12 months).
6) I don't even want to think about applying for jobs at the moment. God.
fadagaski: (STOP!)
I'm coming down with a cold or something. Aching joints. Rough throat. Bah humbug.

Also writing so much fic! It is entirely [livejournal.com profile] shei's fault. I will be posting them here when they're finished despite how much LJ sucks at the moment. (I can appreciate the hard work they put in against the DDoS attacks, because LJ proved itself awesome and we were all grateful. It doesn't really excuse an update that suddenly renders it unserviceable to the visually impaired and, frankly, general users).

Frighteningly short of money. :( I need moar [read: any] work.

I've spent the last 2+ years working 50+ hours a week at multiple jobs, and I have NEVER felt this exhausted before. I'm averaging 4.5 hours of sleep a night during the week, due to a combo of lates at the pub and needing to finish resources in the morning. I can't wait until I'm fully qualified and I can stop this mad schedule. It's killing me.

Pub shift was loooong. Started at 1pm. Finished at 2.30am. Home for 3am.

Felt really down in the afternoon which I am choosing to attribute to low blood sugar, however: I am taking Dianette, which is a contraceptive pill with the added bonus of suppressing excess hair growth. Since I've been shaving a beard for 10 years, I thought I'd give it a shot. But the thing with hormone pills is that it messes your mood from what you're used to. I tried a pill like that before and I cried every afternoon until the scrip was finished. So: leery of sudden moodswings and urges to cry. The again, maybe I'm just not used to that amount of female hormones bouncing around. If my ovaries functioned correctly, would I be a really weepy girl?

Other side effects listed include blood clots, liver damage and a change in appetite. Didn't have much of one at all yesterday, so that again is something to watch.

In other news, I currently weigh 11 st 4 lbs and haven't been running in 9 days. Whoops.

Other other news: I am so in love with Glee at the moment. [livejournal.com profile] shei is my one true love and best dealer ever.

Hitting about an 8 on the TMI scale )

In less traumatising news, I am suddenly and deeply in love with Kurt/Blaine from Glee - well, okay, I loved them before, but now I am READING FIC and it is AWESOME.

My enabler and dealer and homebody is [livejournal.com profile] shei who I cherish with my entire being because she gives me FIIIIIC. ♥
fadagaski: (STOP!)

Been talking to those who were on shift with me Friday night when I collapsed. Not only did I smack my head on the ice bucket, not only did I collide with a shelf full of glasses (none of which broke!), I was apparently unconscious for 20 minutes. That's the longest I've ever been out. So weird.

I really really want to see the CCTV footage.

Brilliant night out. Rocked the dress. No pics though. :(

Am flat on my back in the staffroom after passing out behind the bar. Nausea and general crap feelings not due to a hangover. Don't know what's wrong but it fucking sucks.

It is the end of my holiday. I am back at work tomorrow. Naturally I have a cold. Body = fail.

Ego boost!

Three separate people told me today that I was looking thinner. Yay! Such an ego boost, and so well timed seeing as I ate chocolate fudge cake with ice cream and s bowl of chips today. In my defence it was a stressful shift, in that my colleague collapsed and the manager was slow. Still, there's falling off the wagon, and then there's taking a flying leap. Lol.

One of my major goals for 2011 was to lose 1st. As of Monday 21 March, I have succeeded!

New goal: lose 2st more by my birthday (30/9).

Aaaaand go!

Didn't pass out much at the blood test, which was great. Traumatised me for the rest of the day, so getting through my shift at work was difficult. Still, at least it's over with now.

Went for a run this morning and felt awesome. It totally rocked.

Also, I put a request up over at the kinkmeme for The Eagle and HOMG! Two amazing WIP fills already! It's like having fic written especially for you! ♥

It was much easier watching Glee when I was in the USA...
fadagaski: (take it easy turtle)

Today's run was awesome. This is very unusual for a Wednesday. We had some technology fail, but that meant I ran up the hill for 5 minutes instead of 3. I'm very proud of myself! I really pushed hard today for a total of 18 minutes running (interspersed with 8 mins of walking). Yay me!

The Eagle is a teeny tiny fandom. It's nice in a way, but there needs to be more fic!! I am planning something, which (if I finish it) will be long and also plotty. Yay!

I decided I missed reading actual books. It's honestly been years since I picked up an actual book made of paper. So, whilst on amazon looking for humane mouse traps (for our third lodger, who lives in the cupboard under the stairs), I may have splurged a little bit. Lol. But I will have presents in the mail!

I went to school again yesterday. It was really good. I did some more 1-1 teaching that was very productive. I also helped out a bit with a year 7 PSHE class. It was illuminating to see behaviour management in practice, and how it worked. Also realised the value of names in a class. I'm feeling more confident about a teaching career now that I've spent time in the classroom.

Tomorrow I go for a blood test. I fully expect it to be as bad as the last time, which means I certainly won't be driving anywhere. I wish I wasn't so squeamish!

Thus concludes my Wednesday summary.

January so far has rocked.

ETA: Entirely unrelated to the above, but -

Dear Hollywood,

Please to be making a movie with both Chris Pine and Jensen Ackles in it. I mean, Jesus H. Christ.

That is all.
