Today's Hair: Still a bit dry and resentful from having been pinned and curled and styled a couple of days ago but at least this makes it subdued and wavy enough to be pinned back on one side and left loose.

Today's Outfit:A long sleeved brown V-neck top over a bright green sleveless top, Light blue/gray jeans, mismatched socks, brown boots, silver hoop earrings, a dragonfly hairclip and a collection of jangly bracelets in various shades of brown, orange and green.

Today's Weather: Dismal and rainy, setting up a corresponding ache in both my shoulders.

Today's Lunch: A banana, and spaghetti with olives and red pesto

This promises to be a week of busy socialness, crowned by the fact that on Friday Z's company are having some kind of annual conference/fancy do - a thing I'm endlessly excited about since we get to stay for a night in a posh hotel for free. FREE Things! One of my favourite concepts in the whole wide world. Right up there with books and shoes.

Cutting down on my working hours has curtailed my buying of Pretty Lady Things but at the same time my constant fatigue is much more manageable, and I think the immune system is recuperating. Inspired by all these LJrs losing weight I've also declared war on arm flab and drafted Z into being my personal trainer. It's going well so far but all this exercise and marching around and weight lifting shopping bags is endlessly confusing to the cat who does not like change and still hasn't forgiven us for all the pictures we stuck on the walls without consulting him first. On the other hand, I'm happy to report that his fluffyness is undiminshed.



Z and I watched a bit of Cyrano de Bergerac the other night and now my favourite insult is Vielle Mule! which I hurl at him whenever he vexes me.


7:15 Alarm rings
7:16 Locate alarm by trial and error fumbling and hit the snooze button
7:17 Make generic semi-alertness noise at Z who grunts back
7:18 Receive shoulder kisses
7:19 Debate between sex and snuggling. Snuggling wins. So does sleep.
7:45 Realise that the snooze hasn't sounded and that we've overslept because Z needs to be out of the house in ten minutes.
7:46 Make noise of panic and urgency
7:49 Buoyed by adrenaline rush and compassion and goodwill I make Z cereal and tea while he gets dressed.
7:58 Receive kisses. Kick Z out of the house. Go back to bed.
9:15 Get up. Scavange breakfast. Locate cold pizza. Eat cold pizza while watching telly and faffing about on LJ.
9:42 Bubble bath with ducks wot glow and a trashy novel.
10:20 LJ reading comprehension.
10:32 Kicking my lazy ass to go do work and commence reading papers on systemic therapy.
11:00 LJ Love!
11:29 Ring boss to give her a list of messages.
11:40 Ring Z as a random distraction from studying.
11:46 Phone my stepdad and my friend Vuk to wish them happy birthdays.
11:58 Phone my grandmother.
12:01 Read systemic papers.
01:00 Scavenge for food. Locate some fruit and crackers.
01:12 Read systemic papers.
02:34 Feel mind imploding beneath the weight of boredom and terminology. Rearrange magnetic poetry on the fridge. Eat some chocolate. Mmmmmm, chocolate.
02.41 Attempt to work on my presentation for the course.
02:53 Get bored and demotivated and instead retreat to sofa with trashy novel.
03:59 Begin manically locating clothes and papers and getting ready to go to class.
4:10Get on the tube to Vauxhall
4:48 Arrive at KCC
5:00 Start seminar. Sit in a big circle. Be all respectful to people and everything.
07.05Break. Mmmmmmm, Tesco butternut squash soup and girlie hair magazines.
7:35 Back to seminars
9:00 College over! Attempt to locate all belongings. Commence search for gloves.
9:02 Locate gloves.
9:06 Get a lift with coursemate to Hyde Park Corner.
9:18 Shiver on Hyde Park Corner while waiting for the 82
9:26 Bus arrives! Defrost commences. So do hunger pangs.
10:52 Arrive home.
10:53 Fight hunger pangs.
10:54 Give in to hungerpangs and scavenge some crackers.
11:02 Collapse onto sofa, and attempt to remain wakeful to watchMedium but fail dismally. Coma sets in somewhere before 11:30. Coma lasts until 7am the next day at which point the morning light wakes me and I realise I've spent the night on the sofa fully clothed like a drunken hobo.

KCC...?
*encourages use of 24hr clock* ;D

The Milica pic is suppressing my homicidal impulses towards supervisor! Bizarre side-effect. Though good financially.

I'm sorry :( Seems like loads of people had a craptastic day yesterday.

Also you can do the meme for whichever day of the week - most of the people were doing it for last Friday.

On a positive note, it's Women's Day! Happy |Women's Day!

The first few days on a diet are tough, but I think you can do this. Just don't go akins on me!

I'm not really dieting - I tend to watch what I eat in general and be mindful of nutrition, but i've never been able to stick to a diet. My contrary personality immediately starts craving things.

I am in really poor shape though, so I've started doing lots more exercise and trying to be disciplined with it despite the fact that I bore quickly. Stage 1- Toning of the upper arms - Stage 2- Project Toned Thigh - Stage 3- World Domination (hopefully none of this process will include bright coloured lycra)

Well my experience is that unless you're training to enter a body builing contest, you don't need to spend X hours a week in the gym. For the casual person who just doesn't want to be out of breath walking up a flight of stairs or wants to reduce some tummy, they could just as easily spend X hours playing racquetball or another sport.
