Sorry again… although this time it’s not my fault! My laptop has been infected with a terrible virus! It has a high fever and has been in bed covered in itchy red spots for two weeks! Just kidding, well, kind of. It has got a really bad virus, but not that kind. It just crashes a lot and has a gazillion popups every time you go on the internet. My mother, who sadly knows more about computers than I do despite her generally techno-phobic generation, has been trying to sort it out for me, to no avail. I’ll have to take it in to a true nerd once my bank account has more than 2 cents in it. (That’s not even a joke, don’t laugh at me!)
Anyway, I’m borrowing my mums work computer at the moment, which is happily virus-free. My training schedule hasn’t exactly gone to plan so instead I have just been trying not to eat as badly or as much. In my defense though, I have been incredibly busy with my new PA job, signing a lease for my very first and very own rental property, trying to find another job so I can afford it and also gained a beautiful boyfriend (yay me). Not to mention it’s 2 days before Christmas so I’ve been planning gifts and trying to figure out how to afford it. My pay still hasn’t come through so I had to borrow money from my mum to buy her present, and everyone elses! Promise I’ll pay you back mum!
This post so far hasn’t really lived up to my promises of topic purity (if you have no idea what that means read previous posts), but I’ll get to it eventually. I’m very excited to be moving into my first own place. It’s a 1 bedroom unit with a little bathroom, kitchen and lounge-room in a block of units with a shared laundry, which I actually worked out is more cost effective for my needs anyway. The entire place is painted a deep yellow, which I’m tipping most people would hate but I surprisingly like it… maybe that’s why I got it, maybe I was the only one who applied.. ha ha probably. But who cares? Suits me! It has a huge window in the lounge area that lets in heaps of light which I love and a gas stove-top and oven, I can’t stand electric stoves! It’s not big, it’s not fancy, but it’s all functional and clean and in an awesome location. It’s literally across the road from a shopping with everything you need, 5 mins walk from a tram that takes me to the door step of my uni, or if I stay on it, it will take me to the door step of my parents house or in the other direction, my best friends house. It’s walking distance from Melbourne’s CBD and the famous MCG so I better get myself a footy membership. And 5 mins walk from a street that has a farmers market every Saturday morning! Probably best of all I can walk (or run) tp my old gym/recreation centre which I’ll be rejoining as soon as I have the funds, 6-pack abs here I come!
In other news, I decided that the best way to stay faithful to my promise of posting everyday would be to do another 30-day blog challenge… but this time with a twist! To uphold my other promise of topic purity all the questions for the blog challenge with be health, fitness, diet and exercise related! I’ll start it on Jan 1st because I know I’d just be lying to you if I said I was going to start now cause I doubt I’ll have the time to post on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day with the list of family parties I have lined up. My first blog challenge post on Jan 1st will be a struggle for sure as I will most definitely be hungover. Not a great way to start the year from a health perspective, buy hey, I’m Aussie, it’s tradition and YOLO.
Merry Christmas everybody!!!!
