Sing it with me, now.

It’s the end of the world (but not really) as we know it, and I feel fine. Well, that’s not entirely true. After my workout yesterday, plus kickboxing today, my abs hurt like a bitch. But that’s okay, because there’s still enough fat to cushion them. Goal in 2013: stop being a lazy motherfucker. Another goal in 2013: stop using sentences that contain cushioning fat. Have a good night, everyone. Be safe if you’re partying til the end of the world!

Kickboxing, I heart you.

Today, after a strange morning and a long work day, I got to go back to something I heart: kickboxing. I sweat like a bitch and I am totally out of shape, but it was amazing and I loved it. Toward the end, I even sparred a bit with my instructor, which is something we don’t normally do. But I wasn’t as nervous as I thought I might be. I just swung and – when I remembered – kicked, and it was FUN. I’m so glad I get to get back to doing this on a weekly basis. … But… I’m not done yet.

up and up.

“Well, I looked my demons in the eyes, laid bare my chest, said, ‘Do your best, destroy me. You see, I’ve been to hell and back so many times, I must admit you kind of bore me.’” – Ray LaMontagne I’m starting December off on a good note. As mentioned, I saw that guy last night in concert. It was amazing – and though I went by myself – I didn’t feel weird (well, once the music started, anyway… fate would have it that I was in the very last row in the theatre by the wall, sandwiched in between… I’m not done yet.

And At The End Of The Day…

There’s still wine and chocolate. Thank God. Will work half a day tomorrow, pick up my stuff for the Hot Chocolate 5k (I think I’ll actually make it to this one!), and then… KICKBOXING! I really am excited. I can’t promise that I’ll be any good at it, considering it’s been missing from my life for a whole three weeks, but… let’s just say it’ll feel good to punch things. Love, peace and happiness to all, everywhere in the land!


And with it, comes the realization that: 1) I don’t have a life. 2) I think I really need to start working out on a regular basis. 3) It pains me to say that. Today I spent 3.5 hours finishing up paperwork at work. While it feels good to have things to scratch off the to-do list, I can’t help but think that days off could be spent more wisely. Like watching things on Netflix. And eating chips. You know? I did some grocery shopping and I’m hoping that it’ll last me until my next paycheck. The goal here is… I’m not done yet.
