Stars in my eyes:

If you always want to have the last word in your life as a couple, a breaking off will be inevitable.

Is this reading accusing me of being argumentative? Perhaps.

This will not be the right moment to launch a business or to envisage a professional reorientation; continue patiently to tread your road.

So, I guess I'll stay in Thailand.

Refrain from fats and sweets.

What, no comfort food on payday?

Try to improve your lodging for this will have a positive influence on your morale.

Translation "Clean up your room it's a bloody mess!"

Beware of euphoria so that you won't spend the money you will not have earned.

Funny, this morning I was going to go out and buy some cigars to make me feel better.

My Tarot card today says I need guidance or advice to get with the program.
The Hierophant is the protector of culture and traditions. Conventional by nature, he is a staunch defender of the beliefs a group embraces. He represents a spiritual guide and teacher and is someone to go to for guidance and advice. Never one to question authority, he thrives on structure and values and lives a life of conformity.

Wish I could hang out and chat with my dad for a few hours instead:

Ouch 2

Once again, I am unable to carry out my exercises due to a constriction in my chest and stomach.
Yet again, I'll try to get onto them tomorrow, given the same amount of relief I had yesterday.

I watched the late night movie last night as I'm prone to do after a late night at work.
This time it was A Good Year starring yet another kiwi, Russell Crowe.
The movie beat the crap out of Via Sattelite, though I still felt it was somewhat lacking. Perhaps in the characters. I just couldn't bring myself to fully like any of them. I find Ridley Scott's work a little hit and miss and this is sorta borderline. Also Crowe's acting wasn't that great. His accent wasn't very convincing. He still sounds like a kiwi to me.

I went to Nobi's tonight. Good food at great prices. Once again, I had my usual Currywurst & fries.
After that I went grocery shopping and bought OHMIGOD... health food. Lot's of nuts, meusli, milk and wheat crackers.
What is the world coming to?

I'm a SMF

I finished the other 30 reps of my exercises and added 50 more of two other exercises to bring up my target of 250 for the day.
I hope I can continue this tomorrow and get back with the program, so to speak.

I'm down, but not out yet

I just did 20 bench pressses, 20 sit ups and 20 leg extensions, so I'm back in the game.
I'll try to do this again a couple of times today.
A couple of people have told me to push through the pain barrier and I believe they're right.
I'll do as much as I can, but I still have vivid memories (sometimes nightmares) of naval crew deliberately torturing me and breaking my body.
I'm not keen to revisit those experiences just yet.
Soon I will be stronger than I've ever been and then it will be time to exercise those demons, so to speak, haha.

I still miss someone

I'm in a very good mood today.
Someone called me for a few hours this morning and now I have a big smile on my dial.

I'll try to do a few more exercises today, but it still feels like someone beat me up with a baseball bat.

Ouch

My body is very sore today.
I can't even lift the bar off the rack, so I might have to give the exercises a miss until my muscles stop screaming.
Damn. I was really getting into it, too.
I knew this would happen. I thought I'd just have to cut back a little, rather than stop.

Payday today. Woohoo!

I don't wanna be lazy anymore... or fat.

Well.
I did it.
I made it through my exercises.
It wasn't easy, but I pushed myself to do them all before going to bed.
I'm almost certainly going to feel like shit tomorrow, but it'll be worth it.
I managed 250 reps for today. I'm just looking to repeat that for the next 2 weeks, then I guess I'll add more weights.
Right now for the presses, I'm using 10kg + the bar for a total of 17kg.
My legs are a hell of a lot stronger from my life of riding around on bikes, but I'm still only using 20kg for now, though I may add another 5kg to that next week.
This is the most exercise I've done since leaving the Navy 5 years ago.

I've started listening to the complete studio recordings of Alice Cooper. He's one of the rock artists Rida doesn't mind listening to.
I started in 1969 with Pretties For You and now I'm typing to the sounds of 1970's Easy Action. Neither of them sold terribly well and I can kinda see why: they're an odd blend of The Beatles and Pink Floyd.

Feelin' alright!

Life is very good right now.

I'm sure I'm gonna be a great boyfriend for Rida when she gets back.
I just got this feeling like everything's gonna come together for us.

I'm sticking to my NY revolutions.
Just gotta play guitar more & put more hours into preparing my English lessons.

I'm too sexy for my blog/ Too sexy for my blog/ No one will read me.

Here's my new boy-toy man-toy:



10 reps x 5 sets x 5 exercises = a kick-ass body + more energy, hopefully.

I'm back? Perhaps. We'll see.

Well, I'm going to try to keep my posting regular again.
This ties in with the thing I said about living a life that's worth photographing.
I need to live a life worth blogging about, too.
Well, two days without Morrowind and the pressures of withdrawal don't seem to be crushing my soul just yet.
I really gotta kick some lazy habits. Everyone's been trying to tell me for so long.
I have been super busy though, so I'm gonna lean on that cruch just a little while longer.
That reminds me. I worked from 9:00 - 5:30 today and I've gotta go out and DJ again from about 8:00 - midnight, then do it all over again tomorrow.
Ahh... the life of a celebrity. No rest for the wicked & all that. At least I have Monday for sleep...I can keep my New Years resolutions to the 6 days of my working week.
Even gods take a day off once a week afterall.

p.s. Via Sattelite is the lamest fu*king excuse for a movie I've seen this year.
