I can’t wait for the day when exercise becomes the escape that food used to be.
I have a friend who you might describe as a bit of a “gym twat”. The whole protein powder, body building magazines, brings it up whenever he can as if he thinks it makes him better than people who don’t work out. There was a time when that attitude irritated me, especially when we got up at 6.30 in the morning so he could go to the gym before work and all he did was complain.
But being at the gym 6.30am every day… that can only be admirable! I understand now. His attitude really inspired me. “If Bull can, I can.”
But last time I was round at his, we went out to dominoes and he got us a massive pizza with extra toppings and all the sides. Now I’m trying so hard not to fall into the awful mindset of “If Bull does it, I can get away with it…”

You don’t get this kind of view on a treadmill
I haven’t been to the gym in a few days, and today found I could take all the cardio equipment on higher resistant, and take more iron on the weights! Muscles are definitely building, how lovely!
I brought a different gym buddy today though, who didn’t enjoy it in the slightest, so we came home early because he was bored.
I don’t know whether to go for a run to make up for it, or work on my dissertation. Prioritising is hard.

It seems I only have enough self control for one piece of self-improvement at a time.
I’ve started working on my dissertation and completely forgot how straining education is. Don’t get me wrong, I love learning and I love my course, but all this research is bloody frustrating!
I sit down to work, and immediately the combination of bored and stressed out gives me an intense urge to eat.
I’m fighting it so far. Must not get into the habit everyone around me has or keeping a bag of sweets/crisps on the desk to keep them going.
