Don't Sweat the Small Stuff.

Heeey there ladies and gents.
Had some gewd times at St Kilda adventure park- my first time! Unfortunately wasn't with Simone but I'll definitely be taking him there soon ahha..
Some of dem slides dough, epic dangerous. Well, probably not really that bad but a few of them are extremely steep and if you ride on the cardboard its super fast. Highly recommend going!
Yesterday I bought a book online, should come in next week.
One of the books from the "Don't sweat the small stuff" series.
I was reading my blog one of the nights I couldn't sleep and in one of them I talk about my short tempered-ness and my lack of patience in certain situations. I realised that I haven't really done much about that side of me, and although I haven't reeeally blown up about something for a while, its only a matter of time after I start full-time work.
Also I thought my tendency to grind my teeth at night MUST be related to stress, somewhere embedded within my mind. Even though I don't feel stressed, I know my subconscious is, because thats just how I do haha.
So finding ways to deal with the underlying stress can only be a good thing.
The book talks about ways to deal with the day-to-day stress, and I remember watching a youtuber a few years ago who gave it really good reviews. Fingers crossed I'll learn a thing or two!
Plus, now that I'm moving to Port Augusta, I'm going to have a whole lot of time on my hands arn't I?
... also bought a new pair of shoes for work. Super excited to get them, first online shoe purchase, PLEASE FIT MY WEIRD FEET.

Date has been set to move on the 6th of March, and for me to start the day after. I'm very keen to start.. a whole month without doing any sort of dental work, I'm really starting to miss it! Long time no inject yo face.

March is going to be super full on.
New Job, new co-workers, new place, new housemate.. new lifestyle, new gym.
And coming back on the weekends for a wedding, two engagements, public holidays and birthdays.
Lots of travelling to be had. Pray for no kangaroos.

Happy Saturday, potatoes! :D

I can't even.

Late night tonight, plus Simon is fast asleep..
Damn son, how do you sleep literally anywhere in like 5 seconds? I wish I could do that.
Feel super lonely cause I'm the only one up. Probably cause everyone has to work and I'm just being a fat ass couch potato all day.
Holidays? I'd rather be busy, making money.

Still waiting on my provider number to be registered before I move up to Port Augusta. We're about 2- 3 weeks late, and maybe more if it doesn't get done soon. All we can do is wait.

I really can't wait to get up there and to start working. I'm actually looking forward to having nothing to do after work but go to the gym, eat and sleep.
Been going to the gym quite frequently lately, cause I just joined Anytime Fitness in preparation for the countryside.
Not really focusing on weight loss (although it would be nice), more trying to gain muscle mass.
Aiming to get stronger. I'm sure as I keep lifting heavy and eating well, the extra weight will just shed off.
Or maybe I'll just end up looking massive. HAhaha. whatevs. Simon has to like me either way. We're in too deep haha*dun dun dunnnn*
We'll see how it goes. 3 weeks in and I've already managed to strain something. Was going too heavy with the deadlifts and so wasn't keeping good posture and killed my back. Sigh. Rookie mistake.
I join Simon at Goodlife with his guest pass on the weekends too, and I've found that there is a huge difference when I compare my experiences at the two gyms.
For one, when I'm at Goodlife I feel very comfortable in the weights area.
When I'm alone at Anytime, everytime I walk into the weights section, I feel like all eyes are on me, because I'll be one of the only (if any) girls around. I feel like people are watching what I do and judging me with every exercise. Its quite uncomfortable some days. Sometimes I don't care, just pump my music really loud and grind through it. But other days I just feel too weird and usually leave out some exercises that are still new to me and that I don't really know how to do. It really affects my workout and also how hard I push.
Eurgh. If only there were a Goodlife in Port Augusta.

I wish Simon were awake. Damn I'm selfish. haha.. But we all knew that already.
I dunno, I guess its because I haven't been working, so I have heaps of energy when night time comes around.
But sometimes I wish he would make the effort to stay up for just a liiiittle bit..
Look at me, whinging about stupid shit. haha GROW A PAIR, Jun.
