I've Been Doing Stuff

I feel as though I've left a big black hole of things I've been doing lately. And I have been doing quite a lot. Probably not exciting stuff, but stuff nonetheless.

I have resumed walking. I've posted previously about my non-exercise loving self. I don't really dig it. I wish so hard that I loved exercising, but for me, I have to work at it. So as a sort of bribe to myself, I take some music, tell Matt that I'm outtie for 30-40 mins and then powerwalk and fat blast my body. It's particularly not lovely this time of the year because of the sweaty betty factor. Or as my Mum kindly told me, ladies don't sweat, they perspire. So perspiration it is.

I've been trying to walk most days. I've even been setting the alarm early. This is another revelation in itself because I am not a huge morning person. But I go. And I say hi to those who don't say hi, I revel in the early morning-ness of it all. I am the first one awake! Look at me! I'm awake! This is like some sort of discovery for me. I get so much done.


Other than walking, I've been stitching for my sister's birthday. Although it is now close to a month overdue, it's coming along quite nicely. I set last Friday as my deadline, however, in a bid to have one thousand stitches, it's taking a little longer.

Oh and I got a new hair cut. I did just get a substantial amount of hair cut off six weeks ago. And hated it. So I went back and went shorter. This, my friends, is another revelation. Me likey!


Et tu?

My mother took it one further:

animals sweat, men perspire, ladies glow! I think glowing sounds so much nicer! ;)

Exercise can be a chore - take today I was out with my work chum whinging like a trooper that I just did not want to be there.

Love the haircut - looks great

That is completely a FRENCH hair cut. Magnifique (with some sort of accent-y thing somewhere no doubt)

We are doing a 10,000 steps challenge here at work at the moment.. and it's amazing that when you have a target to reach how much harder you try!!

As a short haired lass myself.. that haircut is beautiful

Oh sexy hair cut! Nice one. Ahh that revelation of "so THIS is what early morning looks like!" is a scary yet wonderful thing. Especially when you've done half your to dos for the day and it's only 9am. sweet!
