How do i get things sorted
Running is a funny one Nam, I think there are people who run no matter what, and can't imagine not doing it. A lot of us have to really want to though, and if you've got other priorities, then it can take a back seat. I think i'd mostly prefer a nice relaxed walk with a dog where i could easily take my camera to going for a run. There's no reason to feel you need to run with Kara if you can't be arsed!
Weight has always been a battle for me, and linked to self esteem/confidence, but less so now. I'm a lot more confident, but still don't like the extra weight. I'm happy with my legs and arms, it is just my belly where I carry all the excess, and i'd love to get shot of it. I've no idea what size i'll be when I do, i'm thinking 12 at a total push, but actually more likely a 14? Not bothered about size so much as circumference, lol. Whether anyone else is bothered by it though is there problem; I agree with Caz that a bloke will have to accept me the way I am, I won't change for anyone else I don't think guys are as bothered about such things as we imagine they are anyway.
Nice to see you MO! Hope all is well with you, and you're not too crazily busy!
Just remembered I'd signed up fo the kilomathon (13.1K) in September, which fits in nicely with the half mara plan i've found, and i've also just signed up for the Great Edinburgh Run (10K) the week before the half (I've done it twice and wanted to do it again!), but i'm supposed to run 10 miles that weekend, so I might have to run to the start Christ, never done that before!!
I came home to some Hotel Chocolat goodies on the doormat courtesy of the lovely Hobbit. I am doing some quality control
My running mojo seems to depend on how much time there is left over after work and stuff. The answer is not much this week. Actually there won't be much for the next 4 weeks but I'll get plenty of walking when we're away ... plenty of food too though.
I need to be tidying for my weekend guest but there's tomorrow night isn't there ....
Hope your dad is OK MO, leg ulcers can be tricky to heal.
Hi guys. I am here but haven't got much positive to say, so I am staying quiet. Been a bad day todey, packing up the house. Tomorrow we have mediation to sort out the finances. It's going to be a tough week.
Hello ladies- tis my one year anniversary tomorrow - mine and 'J's first trip to Leeds together as co-workers. I thought she was a stuck-up misery guts and she thought I was a scouse gobshite...
Hmmm perceptive on her part I think.
it would be another 7 trips and two months before we 'got it on'... and I've been getting on her wick ever since!
DVDs despatched tomorrow afternoon... sorry for the delay - mad busy (you know what I'm on about, you know who)
Well I don't think it's me be I will be very wary of any dodgy DVDs I find on the doormat!
Scouse gobshite .... you're not particularly Scouse
Tee hee (cheeky monkey) ...and Am taalkin moor like ah Geordie eva-ry dee young T P
(That Geordie accent used to get 'Sweetest' all hot under the collar... Which meant I played on it!)
One of the things I miss about singledom and here - flirting is forbidden...
Good to see you again Corrie
Wy aye bonny lad You'll be sounding like Mr Shed before you know it.
Flirting forbidden?! Never! I will probably only stop flirting when I stop breathing. S knows it's harmless (I have a highly tuned radar for those who might take it seriously) and as much a part of me as the SB and chocolate addiction.
And you SCaz - I read back about your situation a couple of weeks ago - I hope it works out for you. It can be a lonely road the road you've chosen, but it's probably the right road given your circumstances.
I wish you the very best
She's very strict on flirting TP- she reckons it's disrespectful and has banned all female contact beyond the cerebral - if you want to talk about Jungian Archetypes, Normal Form Game Theory or proposed changes to the LBW rule... I'm your man.
But discussing ample boobage, firm thighs and dirty movies is right out... unless I'm chaperoned
As all of those are completely outwith the capabilities of my feeble little brain then I will have to stay silent if we ever meet again ... but quite happy to discuss the LBW, Jungian & you can hardly shut me up when I get onto that normal game form thingy
S is a bit of a flirt too but without the common sense to work out if people are actually taking it seriously. I've had to help extricate him from a couple of situations where he's inadvertenly acquired a devotee.
I share an iMac with she-who-must-be-worshipped and as she does most of our admin it makes it very difficult to 'av a laff' - I mean, it's not a massive thing but since my problems earlier in the year with my old Yahoo email address (which is still being used to send out spam - beware!) she's become guarded. To be honest, I can't say I blame her.
Anyway - time for Bob-Dog's evening soiree
Breaking up and moving out is tough SC but try to think of every one of the steps as being one step nearer to closeure and getting yourself back on track. If it's tough then keep hold of one thing you achieved during it.
Nice tale - Our first 'date' was a meal in Watford as an apology for me being a grouchy bastard that day - we started talking about 'non-work' stuff (She was attached but on the way out) The next thing you know we were both... well... on the same wavelength and laughing about stuff.
I found myself being more or less invited to her room but backed off as I was carrying a torch for someone else - our trips to 'gigs' became something I really looked forward to and the next time we shared a night - it was all night and it's been that way ever since...
Anyway - dog walking
