Ooo, who is this best person you got coffee with? :O

just some random i ran into near the tank

versary asked: you're gonna have to change your description from 'family, friends, &c.,' to 'family, friends, FIANCE, &c.' the alliteration is pleasing. do it.

lissewale:

Done! ^_^

hey, you know, today was okay. i lifted some heavy things, wrote a lot of words, made some good decisions, got coffee with one of the best people i know, kissed josh a lot, and felt like i was actual. there was sunshine and i was in it.

to do today: drink more water, eat dinner, write the rest of my paper, do everything with focus, be present and conscious, inhabit my body

WOD
5 rounds for time of:
2 deadlifts
90 sec max box jump burpees

i managed 50/12, 50/14, 55/14, 60/15, 65/14. we worked in pairs and my partner was another women who’s similar in size to me - i think i might be a centimetre or two taller than her, but she’s more muscular. i feel really bad because i don’t know her real name - i only know people’s nicknames. everyone calls her yads. so. 
i’m kind of ecstatic that my deadlifts are improving so much. about a month ago 65kg was my 1 rep max for deadlifts and today they seemed so easy - i reckon that if i’d had another round i would have tried 70kg. box jump burpees suck, but whatever.
at the end of the class while we were stretching the trainer goes, ‘gold star of the day goes to keels and yads who just kept adding weight on! what’s that, like, double your bodyweight?’ so that felt nice.
looks like it’s shaping up to be a pretty great day. three hundred words left to write on my paper, a gender studies tutorial, and i think i’m seeing lisse today as well? good, good.

yes i will fix your washing machine with two hair ties and a spoon

you can all bow down to me

(fix as in “”“”“fix”“”“”“)

update: one hair tie and a spoon. for a little while i was manually holding the switch while i thought of a more efficient way.

i feel like my engineer father would be proud of such an elegant solution, but really he’d shake his head and tell me to get it fixed.

we should probably get it fixed.

had plans to go to the lunchtime WOD but then my knee started playing up again because i walked down some stairs so instead of going i walked around campus and the city and then home and i think just keeping it doing the movements it’s meant to do has made it feel better. i’m pretty pissed that i missed training today but i don’t want to exacerbate the knee thing because i worry about my knees. hopefully taking a break today will mean it’ll be fine for tomorrow.

i’m trying really hard not to stress about missing a day. i know things will be fine, i just don’t like realising that i’m not completely in control of my body, to put it mildly.
