It’s Monday morning. I am supposed to be refreshed and rested from the weekend, ready to tackle the next 5 days. Nope that’s not happening. I’m still exhausted and the weekend didn’t help to relieve that all all.
I tried to study. I really did. However, exhaustion just gets in the way and my time is spent just staring at my laptop screen rather than doing any productive work. School is on mid-semester break this week which means I don’t have to go there tonight or Wednesday. I do still have to go to work but at least I can come home earlier and maybe even go to sleep earlier.
There are exactly 60 days until I need to submit my assignment. That means there are 68 days until I pitch my idea to the judging panel. I’m still slugging along at all the briefs and any mini assignments and quizzes that come along. My average is still sitting above 90 which is good. I plan to keep it there. I just need to take it a step at a time and not get too caught up in how much work I have left to do. I just need to focus on getting one thing done, then moving on to the next item.
All I can imagine is seeing my event being staged here. The idea is amazing. I just need to execute the pitch perfect.
Enough about study. It’s getting there. I’m just thinking of all the free time I am going to have when it’s done.
Let’s chat about the update that I was supposed to give you a week ago but just haven’t had the time to get on here for a good half an hour to tell you.
My weekly boxing class finished up last Tuesday and will not be available next term. To tell you the truth, I’m pretty disappointed or pissed off. Whatever way you want to look at it. It was one of the main reasons I was still making it to the gym. I thoroughly enjoy belting the crap out of the pads each week and relieving some stress from the week before. Now it’s not available, I’ve had to rethink the structure of my week and finances and whether it’s really worth paying for something that I am not going to use to it’s full potential.
I cancelled my membership at the gym. Yep. Sometimes it’s just not worth it. At the moment, between work and study, I’m making it to the gym an average of once a week. That’s almost $18 a session and I could find a better use for the fee. I have until the end of October (and another fee payment) to keep going due to the notice period in the contract.
That brings me to my second update. I’m going to start doing PT with Jade, my trainer at the gym. She runs her own business. You can find it here and here. I’m super excited about it. We will be training at the gym she trains at, Stryve Gym: Ultimate Training Centre. I went for a little look-see on Friday night with #boyfie and I definitely wasn’t prepared for what I saw. Now, I’m terrified. I know it’s going to be a better option for me but that doesn’t stop me from overthinking the situation. PT will be on Thursday evenings. When my course is over, I will have a look at joining Stryve
Another session we have going at the moment is our kickboxing bootcamp on Sunday’s. It was a normal bootcamp session which all kinds of things thrown in but since boxing has been removed from Tuesday evenings, Jade decided to change the session and keep it just boxing/kickboxing. I love it. I have bruised some tendons in my left hand knuckles (from punching too hard of course *wink face*) so I’ve been taking it a little easy. I need to ice it some more today as I thought it was fine coming into yesterday’s session, but surprise surprise, it wasn’t and I need to try out some lighter gloves.
I have one other update in which I need to tell you guys. Last Thursday, I kicked and trained with a football. It was one of the most satisfying training sessions I’ve ever experienced. It wasn’t anything special. We just passed the ball around in a circle, had some shots on goal and played a miniature game. I felt the freedom of the field flow back into my body. I felt the crunch of the grass under my studs. It sounds a little strange, but for a footballer (or maybe just my weird self) there is nothing more important at that time, except you, the ball and the field. I was and am so proud of myself for pushing through the recovery of my knee reconstruction. Day 595 and football is back in my blood baby! 🙂 YEW! Maybe I’ll be able to don the green kit again for Rangers, just like this. ❤
That’s about all I have for now. My PT session is on Thursday evening, so hopefully I can give you an update after that and let you know that I didn’t collapse and I’m okay.
