Van

August 18th 2022 Today I spent £50 on bins. That’s what my life has come to. Bins. I rented a van for the final stage of moving into my new house. You can do this thing through Hertz where you pick up a van from a Homebase and rent it for two hours. It’s quite smart. So I did that. Problem was we got to Homebase like 30 minutes before the van would open, because they text you a code, so we had some time to kill. So I spent £50 on bins. I’m a grown ass man. I’m a … Continue reading Van

Vitamins

August 17th 2022 Today I’m going to try and start taking my health more seriously. It’s easy to feel like I’m healthy considering I’m six foot and seventy kilos, but sometimes I dread to think what my dietary choices (or lack of) are doing to me. It’s not that I eat shit. I don’t really touch junk food. It’s more that I’ll either eat really well or I won’t eat. And there are things that I just don’t eat that I should. It’s all about balance innit. And sometimes I’ll go too carby, or too eggy, or too meaty, and … Continue reading Vitamins

Joy

August 16th 2022 Today it’s weird, I was excited to drive home from work to spend the evening in my new home, but when I got here I just felt really flat. The place still feels really empty, and that makes me feel really alone. It’s a big old place for little old me. I still don’t really have furniture, and that’s obviously contributing to the feeling of emptiness (both literally and spiritually), so maybe I should sort that out. Or I just get a dog. That should help. On my list of New Years resolutions this year were two … Continue reading Joy

Keys

August 15th 2022 Today I completed on my house purchase and moved mostly into my first proper home. A home that I bought with mostly my own money. It’s a good day. It doesn’t feel like that much of a good day because this morning was just a lot of waiting around, and this afternoon was exhausting and frantic with all the moving of boxes and most of the furniture, but it’s a good day. Here’s a hint for you. If and when you buy a house, if you’ve not already done so, don’t bother booking the morning off work. … Continue reading Keys

Unprepared

August 14th 2022 Today I shot a new personal best round of golf. 82 on a 70. 12 over par. Progress. It was also perhaps the warmest I’ve ever been on a golf course, and I slept through my tee time and arrived twenty minutes late, so I was not in any way warmed up. Maybe that’s the trick. I got like two hours sleep last night (cuz heat and thought spirals), so I was exhausted, unprepared, and late, and I shot 12 over. Maybe I’ll try that again next time. Hashtag break eighty is happening this year. I’m three … Continue reading Unprepared

Cleared

August 13th 2022 Today felt like a send off to my flat. For the first time the fact that I’m moving out on Monday started to feel a bit real. Maybe to do with the fact that I packed everything I own into boxes, and cleared out the stuff I didn’t want. It had a send of finality about it, that’s for sure. And so, all my stuff is in boxes. Even the plates and the forks, so we ordered a filthy takeaway to celebrate, and ate it out of the boxes. Dirty Boys. I can confirm it was very … Continue reading Cleared

Injections

August 12th 2022 Today I have a few things… First, I know I’m not the smartest bloke when it comes to earth sciences, but can someone explain to me how it gets hotter the longer the day goes on? And I don’t mean like 2pm is hotter than 10am because yeah no shit, but somehow 10pm is hotter than 2pm. I’m sweating my **** off here. I don’t usually censor but I can’t cope with the lecture from my dad in this heat. Second, it turns out I have a B12 deficiency and need to get injection every other day … Continue reading Injections

Squats

August 11th 2022 Today was my second gym class of my trial week. It was a legs session today. I enjoyed it because I didn’t find it too difficult, but the fact that I didn’t find it difficult probably means that I didn’t try hard enough. That’s the problem I’m having atm. Because we go around a circuit doing different exercises, and the exercises are new to me and so are the weights, I have basically zero idea what weight I’m supposed to pick up. So I’m by default going low so as not to overexert myself but tonight I’ve … Continue reading Squats

Doms

August 10th 2022 Today I’ve got the day two DOMS. Have I mentioned that I go to the gym now? Or rather, I’ve been to the gym once. I’m telling everyone, so I imagine I’ve told you lot. Anyway. When I woke up yesterday I was expecting to hurt a lot more than I did, and so I felt guilty that I’d not tried hard enough. But oh buddy does it hurt today. So I guess I did try! So that’s good. I have another class tomorrow. Until tomorrow, not sure how I’ll manage right now. Jacn Continue reading Doms

Workout

August 9th 2022 Today was day two of my week of workouts. I probably can’t get away with calling a round of golf a workout but it’s alliterative so fuck you. I usually play golf on Thursday evenings but on Thursday this week I’m off for another gym class (heroes)/resistance training session. I did one of those yesterday, too, but for cardio. I played golf today. I’ll play football tomorrow. I’ll be at the resistance training session on Thursday. I’ll be at a hybrid resistance/cardio session on Friday. I’ll maybe probably kinda potentially do park run on Saturday. I’ll play … Continue reading Workout
