So I have a new boyfriend. Very new actually as I met him on NYE and we've had two dates so far, not including todays. We're obviously still in the whole honeymoon period, you know everything is perfect etc, but my gosh, I REALLY like him. He's so swoon worthy. So of COURSE i'm totally paranoid that he doesn't like me as much as I like him. Even though the first date we officially went on he brought me a copy of Clockwork Orange and The Little Pet Shop of Horrors, because when we chatted to each other on the phone and texted, he got the impression I'd enjoy them. Then on the second date, he brought me another Anime DVD and we went to see Django. He brought me popcorn-and got them to mix sweet and salty. Which of course I felt was epic.
This weekend, I was still sick and I didn't really want him to see me looking ill. But he came over anyway and brought ginger cookies that HE BAKED HIMSELF.
Yeap. He's a plasterer and he looks like a stereotypical chav. But he has a lot of swoon factor. He doesn't read much, because he has dyslexia, but he studies and reads up on things that interest him. He knows a lot about various religions and different cultures-he said rather than just hate something blindly, he'd rather find out about it. He keeps on about how he's not smart, but I think he is. He's really funny and is the kind of bloke who just seems to make friends really easily-almost instantly. I lie not, I've seen it happen! He's just brimming with charisma. I mean, the first thing he said to me on NYE was "Wanna see my snake?" which I have to admit worried me, but then he pulled out his phone and showed me a picture of his pet snake.
And on top of all this, he has suggested we go rock climbing for a future date.
**All over, promise never to go doe-eyed again!**

So last night was...interesting.
I woke up at 6am as usual, with the knowledge that I had a course to attend that morning (a very interesting one.) One thought was foremost in my mind.
How on earth will I get the troll and dwarf in without creating a commotion?
Then I remembered that the dwarf would have their ceremonial axe, which was sure to complicate things. And how on earth was I to explain them when I went back to school? My fever addled brain strove to figure it out.
Then I realised that I had been reading the Fifth Elephant, part of the discworld series last night, that I was thinking of Cheery and Detritus, that they weren't real and I was probably going insane.
It really set the tone for the rest of the day.

I'm getting annoyed with myself now. The aches and pains haven't subsided and I am now onto the chesty cough, bad head and sore throat. The sore throat is good for doing witches voices. I haven't done any proper exercise in about a week, because frankly, even walking to and from school is difficult and makes me wheeze. I have gotten back on the wagon with the eating, with the thought that even if I don't make the exercise, at least I can keep some control. Honestly, I'm just fed up at the moment. Fed up of the snow, fed up of the disrupted schedule and fed up of being ill all the time. Hopefully it will pass soon and I can spend time with friends and get back to running.

Avoid saboteurs. People will try to persuade you to go against your plan whether they feel guilty themselves or jealous of you. Ignore them. Share your goals with positive people and stay away from those topics around the negative ones.
Write about your motivation in your journal. There are many reasons you chose your goals-better health, self esteem, or happiness. Put all these reasons on paper and read them when you need motivation.
I have been really run down the last few days and not managed to do much, if any exercise. I'm trying to get back on track with the eating so that even if I can't move I'm still on track somehow. It's nice how I don't feel bad about this, or guilty. Hopefully I'll be back on track with the running by Sunday.

School days make it hard to stay on track, but I'm doing my best. I didn't have time for a run yesterday and I won't have time tonight either, but I've managed my Jan jumpstart video yesterday and am determined to so so again tonight.
Yesterdays advice from the Sparkpeople calendar was:
"Reward yourself. For each milestone you reach, plan something fun. Rather than using food or skipping a workout to celebrate, stay on track with: new clothes, a massage, a vacation, movie tickets, a book, a day off work or a gym membership."
Trust me, I have that DOWN. My start page is full of my incentives and rewards!
Todays advice from Sparkpeople?
"You're halfway there! Today look back on your progress and reevaluate your goals. Are you on track with your timeline? Is your goal still important? Are you motivated? Make changes to your goals, if necessary, to keep the momentum going strong!" Well, I do feel like it is still working. Even though I haven't been quite on track, getting it right 11 days out of 14 is good going so far. The actual getting there is still a work in progress, it has kinks and bumps/errors that need to be sorted and corrected. But sooner or later, it's going to all come together, as long as I keep pushing at it.
