Feeling Good

I am almost finished my first 8 units in my course. Super excited as the course is set up to only give me (or anyone doing it) access to parts at a time. Almost at stage 2- another 8 units. One step closer each and everyday.

So I didn’t post yesterday because I had work and then a few minutes after, I had Zumba. Zumba was good though right at the end my ankle decided it needed a break. I pushed through because it was the last dance though when I got home I couldn’t walk. Whoops. Tell you what, missing that one week of Zumba really throws you out. My feet were wanting to do something entirely different from the actual dances, but I made it.

Yesterday was day three of me being strict and I have to be honest, there have been times I wanted chocolate or pizza (thanks to the smell of it in the shop down the road) but its like my body is internally saying no to me. its weird to say- believe me I know- but its like my body’s rhythm because I have tried, and failed, to do this before. Maybe its picking up some sort of memory from the last time.

Anyway, until next time xx


Games Night And Pizza

Tonight Ben and I had invited over two of our friends (The girl I go to Zumba with and her boyfriend) to play some board games.Instead only she came over. We talked for a bit before playing any games. Apparently, they’d been having issues because he wasn’t treating her fairly. Nothing violent or anything, just everything is very one-sided.

As she was talking, she was crying. Slow, silent tears but I could tell. I also knew she didn’t want to bring attention to that fact so I picked a board game. Well, more of a card game. Its called Gloom and the idea is to make every character on your team unhappy and all the characters on the other teams happy. Confusing concept but heaps fun. I thought it was a good idea to start with that game because she could focus on making other unhappy. I think it worked because she ended up winning. Which was good because by the end of the game she was smiling again and laughing.

After Gloom, we played a pirate game. Also a good choice as it was quick, easy and another great distraction. Ben ended winning that game, mainly because the way he likes to play is to steal rum from everyone. In  the game, rum is quite a lot of points if you have the right rum. By the end of the game we were getting a bit hungry. Not sure of what to have, we walked to the pizza place that has opened up down the road from where Ben and I live.

My friend and I watched a show called Riverdale while we ate. Riverdale (if you don’t know) is a mystery show. Kind of like a ‘Who murdered him’ show. Its quite interesting.
I just hope my friend and her boyfriend can sort out what is happening.

Anyway, until next time xx
