Me, in basic

Where to start, and how do I determine the difference between what is basic and what is intricate about me?

I am naturally blonde although my hair has gone darker over all the years from all the highlighting. I have an athletic build and I am average height. I freak out over picking up weight although I also don’t really care if I do. The cake is there to be eaten. That’s pretty basic right?

I love being fit, but I actually find that keeping fit is bloody difficult and takes a lot of dedication. I am dedicated, there’s nothing basic about being dedicated.

I am lazy, but I am also hard working and energetic. It’s complicated.

I have a love/hate relationship with my bed. Love to sleep but also hate to go to sleep.

I am weird, and not weird like you need to stay away from me weird. I say and do random things, I am hyper, enjoy acting “crazy”, love being a clown and enjoy laughing at myself. I think this is also probably why I cannot quite find anyone that interests me enough to stay with. The thought of acting “normal” with anyone just so that they can like me is just not going to work for me.

Kissing, this isn’t basic for me, or it is. I just love it. All the other stuff can take a back seat.

I absolutely love my friends, and whilst I may know a lot of people and they are dear to me. There are only really one or two close friends that I can say mean the absolute world to me, one in specific and she knows who she is.

My Mom & Dad are the most important thing in my world, everything I do for myself, I do for them as well. My Ouma is also right up there with them.

My home, this is my space and I love it. I share it with few. The same goes for my garden, an area which I love to spend my time in.
If you asked me a few years ago what the top 5 most important things in my life were, I would probably tell you work was in the first 3. It’s not anymore, it comes in the top 5 but life doesn’t revolve around it.

CharlieC, he isn’t with me anymore but I can’t even tell you how often I think about him and how much I miss him. The presence of a pet in one’s life can never really be explained until it has been lost.

If I could quit work today and travel tomorrow, I would. The things that are out there to be seen, *sigh*.

Gotta Get Fit

Haven’t blogged in ages, haven’t had an off day in ages (17 days and counting… the life of a career girl) haven’t been to the gym or running in ages…!

As of today I have been working for 17 days straight, whilst I am not physically exhausted, I am starting to get mentally tired, irritable and also annoyed about the fact that I have not been to gym in ages nor eating very healthy.

My biggest, and most terrifying fear is being overweight. There is nothing that scares me more than the thought of picking up weight and losing all the hard work that I have put into maintaining my fitness and body weight. Now don’t get me wrong, I know that I am not fat, but I also know what my best is, and I am currently not at my level best.

This month I have been eating a lot of junk, I have in the last couple of months been drinking more alcohol than what I should be (no one forced me to drink of course), and I have also been eating a lot of bread… I do not even like bread. But when you are working from 6 30am – 6 30pm every day, what other option do you have?

As of the 1st May I have decided that I need to get my ass into gear, and it’s going to be tough, mostly because of the cold and darkness that has arrived with the treacherous Winter season. But I am going to gym or run, daily. I will be eating healthy and I will also stop drinking alcohol again.

My goal… to get fit again and also to look great before my Birthday & the wedding that I am attending in August (anyone know of a hot date thay can accompany me?) and of course my holiday in BALI, I have got to look super hot for that!!! 🙂

And I am cycling the 94.7 with my Dad again this year! Have to be super fit for that one.

My First Park Run

So I finally managed to get my butt up “early” enough on a Saturday to go and do a Delta Park Run! It was fun, running is always fun, even more so when there is a nice large group of people also doing it.

Don’t get me wrong, I love running along the roads alone as it gives me time to zone out and think about absolutely nothing while I am out there. But what is also really great about running with a group is that you are “motivated” to run faster and keep a better pace, I mean, who wants the guy that looks 40 km heavier than you to come cruising past you on the uphills or the skinny kid that looks half your age to sprint past you on the downhills. No me! 🙂

The Delta Park Run was great, well organised, and I will definitely do it again, soon. Here are my results – “You finished in 118th place and were the 15th lady out of a field of 511 parkrunners and you came 3rd in your age category.”

And for all I know there could have only been 3 people running in my age category yesterday, because most people that are 25 would probably have been lying in bed with a hangover from the night before.
