Some success. But. - manjushra
Some success. But.

My gym training schedule is working out fine now. I'm planning the week in advance, when I can go to gym after school, and again on Sunday at 4pm (NOT 5!). I'm pleased with that, though I do still feel that I don't do good training without Francis. He really takes it to the pain threshold, or as nearly there as is still healthy.

I think I look thinner. I wore a dress today which I bought two years ago and wore a couple of times before I started eating badly and gaining weight. It looked ok, possibly.

I also bought a new set of bathroom scales, as the old scales were (a) mechanical (b) with a very small, faded, fuzzy display (c) about 20 years old (d) probably not working very accurately. On my new digital scales I am half a stone heavier. So.

My eating has been crap, though. I'm very on and off. The reason is clear - I don't have enough going on in my life that I feel excited and positive about. "Are we having fun yet?" Absolutely not, we are not. So when I fall into a pity-party, feeling sorry for myself that I don't have (a) a love life  (b) a social life (c) a fix for feeling afraid about talking to people (d) much of a rosy future, then - well, there's always cheese and cake.

Is there any possibility we might meet up this summer? When does your term end? (I think feeling crap is supposed to be a necessary job requirement for all teachers at this stage of the school year, isn't it?).

I would love to meet up this summer. I was looking to travel somewhere solo the first week in August. Also it would be kind of nice to bring Tim over to talk programming with Fergal, praps later in August. Or are you guys travelling around too?
Feel free to reply by email rather than here!
