general news

October 07, 2005

i gave up smoking on monday. i'd promised myself i would quit when i finished my course, and i decided that it was pointless to cut down to one a day, or whatever, because actually i just want to stop. so i have. surprisingly it hasn't been as bad as i was expecting - i suppose i didn't really smoke that much - it is NOTHING LIKE trying to give up from 20 a day. unfortunately i know from past experience that all resolve goes out the window if i have a few drinks, so i'm not going to drink at all for a few weeks.

i have also joined a new gym and have been going at every available opportunity, sometimes twice in the same day. i had forgotten how great it feels to push myself physically. i have got an impossibly tough programme featuring lots of hideous interval training. this involves running as fast as i can for 2 minutes, followed by speedwalking up gigantically steep hills for 2 minutes, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat. i know, it sounds bloody awful, but i love it. i have also been swimming again and boiling myself in the hottest steam room ever. it's totally wicked.

now that my course has finished, i have discovered i have a gigantic pile of chores that have been building up over the last 10 months. for example, i haven't done any filing since january. i have finally sorted out the 473 photos in "latest pictures". today, i took the car in for a service which was 1000 miles overdue. i reckon it'll take months to catch up with everything that needs doing.

Getting to level in WOW?

I'm so jealous, I really miss the gym :(

I've never been there. To push myself physically has never, ever felt like an enjoyable experience. Isnt that weird?!
