Celebrate The Small Things: 11 March
Between back problems, hospital visits and breaks away I haven’t been able to get back to the gym as consistently as I would have liked so far this year. This week I’ve given myself the push to go three times, an hour each session, which is what I use to do. I’m also going to exert my willpower – we have cream slices in the house and I’m going to turn it down. The hardest thing I find about trying to live a healthier lifestyle is that people keep buying treats in or planning nights out, even after you’ve already explained that you’re trying to cut back. It’s my fault for not being very good at avoiding temptation and saying ‘no’, but after a week of keeping to the gym I’m going to stay strong this time… I hope.
This week I focussed on designing a WordPress theme. I’ve only been working on the HTML and CSS so far, but I’m really happy with it. I can be a bit rusty at first if I haven’t done any web programming in a while, and this isn’t helped by the fact that I can be quite ambitious with my ideas. I also got accepted another another user-testing website and completed a couple more tests. I’m getting better at it. I’m far more relaxed now. I’m also on a website called Slice The Pie, a website where you can give feedback on new songs and fashion. It’s a lot of fun and my rating has suddenly jumped up to 4 stars.
My friends and I have been doing a lot more together recently, and I feel like it’s helping me to feel a bit closer to them. We went to see Deadpool together in 4D, started a game of Civilization V and went back for a couple more games at the card game shop. Everybody seems enthusiastic to do the card games as a weekly thing now, which I’m really happy about. We even have plans to do Dungeons and Dragons. I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time, but could either never find the people or the space. I was getting tired of always going to the pub and it costs too much to do it all the time.
Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly celebration created by VikLit and now hosted by Lexa Cain to celebrate the happenings of the week, however small or large. You can learn all about it and sign up for it here.
