Fitness? What fitness?

I haven't worked out in days. At all. Not even a single push up.

It's not intentional, it's just that I've been distracted by a lot of other things. I'm doing work on a friend's website trying to improve some things for their online store, and also going into my own workplace early trying to prepare for Christmas holidays.

On top of that, I'm super excited to have received a super awesome hammock as an early Christmas present, which got a bit of a test earlier this week. It's divine, and I can see a lot of reading going on there. It's a two person one so I can snuggle up with Mario on it too. The best part is that it has its own stand, so I can use it at home, then pack it up and take it camping with us (but leave the stand at home). I can't wait.

Dinner, TV, bed: my Friday night

It's been a big week for me. I spent every night of this week out and about at night after work, from collecting the last of my things from C's place to hanging out with mates. Needless to say tonight I'm super keen to just sit on the couch, watch TV and indulge in a bit of reading.

I've cooked my dinner already, whipping up a bit of spaghetti. I'm still adjusting to cooking for one, but the bonus is how much leftover food I have. Hello frozen meals!!

Tomorrow I'm visiting the hairdresser (we had to move my appointment forward by a number of weeks due to my schedule being booked up for the next few weeks) and also a big movie marathon at a friend's house. I can't wait! It's also one of my 52 in 52 items too, speaking of which it needs updating to remove the ones C and I were meant to do together.

Lazy night in

Today at work was crazy busy, and mentally I am feeling a bit “blah”. To try and pick up my mood a bit I decided a lazy night in was in order.

I showered early and washed my hair, watched a movie and ate some junk food.

I have also just finished straightening my hair, so now I'm feeling just a little bit pretty.

I got the TV working in my bedroom, so managed a couple more idiot box hours watching some junk tv and the tennis.

And now?

It's bed time. I'm going to have a big long snooze, and while I wouldn't mind a sleep in I will be getting up at 6am again and taking my dog for a walk/run. While I would love a lazy morning, the enjoyment I get from spending time with my dog makes the early rise worth it.
