What: either 35 min or strength, not sure yet
Why: -3 outside and thanksgiving dinner later
Last hard: decisions
Lyrics: nope

After a night of tossing and turning, I have decided to accept whatever I'm offered (assuming I'm offered something) and if the conditions aren't satisfactory, I can look once we're a bit more settled. Too many life changing decisions at one in such a short time frame is not good for my blood pressure! Thanks for the support and advice

Lmh February is a long wait
Ollie, liked your post!
Don, glad you finally have a diagnosis and an op date

Have a good day all

Today's good news: a pay cut of a third of my current salary for the same work, plus 10 days less holiday.

If I get a contract, which I now won't in time for the appointment with the bank.

Being positive doesn't seem to make things go right either.

Yoga on hold until I get myself in gear.

Progress Blisters (though as one in the brain injury club, please take it easy coming back...)

What: yoga and fighting for a contract and a house
Why: it's what I do these days
Last hard: See above
Lyrics: no though sound interesting

Today I am going to be positive. It will all be ok.

LMH if I keep using running for the stress I'll soon get my 2016 km in this year (I'm on about 900 at the mo :P).
OH 6 broken bones?!

Have a great day all.

Ha ha Ale, no celebrations here.  Looking grimmer every day.  To top it off, looks like the house is going to fall through too.

Drowning my sorrows would be more appropriate.

But, anger makes me run up hills fast. 50 min done (all the way to the top of that hill I took ages to conquer, plus a bit more).  Made me feel happier, until the potentially bad house news.

Never knew that moving back could be so hard.

OH sounds like a good challenge
What's the lyrics connection Ale?

Have a good evening all.

What: hopefully receiving a contract later (oh and a run)
Why: they promised...though I have lost all faith (oh and it's in the plan)
Last hard: motivation due to above.  also impacting running motivation as I'm reaching the end of the tether (LMH have applied for other things, but as I've been promised this contract for 4 months, not so seriously)
Lyrics: yes.  Yesterday's were mmmmbop by Hansen (sorry)

Well done on the breaststroke mile yesterday OH.  Any reason for the return to the pool?
Chick yay sounds like progress!

Have a good day all.  I'll either be celebrating or commiserating at the Weihnachtsmarkt later...

What: rest/sleep
Why: poorly
Last hard: yesterday
Lyrics: nope

Was trying for a sub 20 min 4 km, but was not feeling quite right before the race.  Ended up with 20:23, and had to walk a few steps as feeling quite nauseous.  3.5 hours of prizegiving, 1st in race (in age group - bottle of bubbly), 3rd in cup (water bottle with hip belt) and on top of that won a hotel voucher.  Came back in addition with 5 certificates and a new t-shirt!

Overnight was feeling very very sick, and all day very wobbly.  Slept most of the afternoon.  Hoping to feel ok for work tomorrow.

In other news, offer has been accepted on a house!

Wow that's impressive fundraising Ale!

Have a great evening all
