Couch to 5km.

Day 2 today of couch to 5km. I wanted to start it on Tuesday but had ab pain so just went for an hour and a half walk instead. Wed I did the first day, then yesterday again just did a long beach walk. It’s a little windy today but the morning is gorgeous so I’ll head off once I drop the kiddies to school. I’m feeling good. Really – how can you not be inspired to get outside, given where I live…

Not as strict as I intended

But exercise has definitely stepped up. Feeling great. Abstinence continues (funny thing about the universe – it has a tendency to test you when you say stuff like that… So far Beth-1/Universe – 0)
I am eating cleaner though. Less processed foods, less carbs, more fresh stuff and daily tonics (hot water and lemon/apple cider vinegar)
Feeling good

It may say someone

But I am going to find THE ONE. My twin flame. Someone to inspire me and who finds inspiration in me as well. Someone to dream with, to make make plans with, to fight and make up with, to play with, to laugh with, to love completely and who is capable of loving me in all my states – not just when I am easy to love.

Sorted

I’ve just been accepted to train as a teacher of Primary Ethics. This will be taking place in my childrens school for the kids who don’t attend religious studies. I’m really looking forward to it. It covers various subjects environment, friendships, animal cruelty, interraction, morals etc but is an interractive experience where the kids can openly discuss the topics. It’ll be a challenge but I can’t wait.

.....

Weight loss is definitely a factor here but the term weight loss has negative connotations for me.
So without going into a rant about societal projections of the thin = happy equation or purging my history of self loathing etc etc, I thought I would make this a positive goal for myself.

So…
I want to run 5km without stopping.
I want to swim 1km twice a week in salt water. (I used to do 1km in a pool but have never found it as easy in the sea)
I want to do REAL pushups.

There will be more to add I’m sure.



get published
Genre unknown...

I’m a cathartic writer – always have been. When things get to me I channel it in writing, when am inspired I write plans, when I am playful I write erotic fiction, when I am loving I write poetry. I write.
At this stage I have several projects I want to work on so the most difficult part of this one will be figuring out where my strengths lay in relation to my writing. Where I contribute most I guess. I can move forward from there.

Being honest....

I accidentally fell on some chocolate yesterday… And mountain bread. Then today, I had a coffee…

BUT! I will not beat myself up about it – no big deal. Choosing to disclose and feeling like I am get back on track now.

I am also (PRE-WARNING: OVERSHARE IMMINENT) booked in this week to remove my contraceptive device. It’s been messing with my hormones, created ongoing cysts on my ovaries and generally just playing havoc with my body’s natural rhythms since I had it intalled (wow… bad descriptive choice there – but I’ll stick by it, regardless of how cyborg it makes me seem). Additionally… unfortunately – it’s kinda not needed at this junction in my life. I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. For now, I reclaim my body.

Progress...

Ok so today I did a major overhaul of my wardrobe… 16 pairs of shoes – gone! Illegal underwear – gone! Sexy lingerie – stored! (well – I’m not joining a convent… might need that again some day) Over stretched socks – gone! Swimwear – culled! Everything else has been cut down in a big way. I’ll drop everything (except the crappy stuff) off to the Salvo’s tomorrow. Finishing off the filing system tonight, I’m on top of the washing – new washing machine is ordered, uni work set… feeling good about things. If I stay on track like this I should be able to knock this goal off the list by the end of August.



do a cartwheel (read all 4 entries…)
So it's been a while..

Had an impromptu cartwheel lesson yesterday. I was in a beautiful space in the Kangaroo Valley for a medatitive workshop. During our lunch break I made a throw away comment about being in such a lovely space and having the desire to do a cartwheel but have never actually been able in my life. A lovely yoga instructor who also attended the retreat heard my comment and immediately had me on the ground teaching me how to do it. I have to say – I came the closest I ever have to doing a cartwheel. Really funny, really silly… I liked it.

Feeling great

Feeling so much clearer at the moment. Have been extremely social and it hasn’t thrown out my routine. I feel as though I am starting to articulate exactly what I want from life, what I want from work, what I want for my future and what I hope for in love. The great thing is though I am confident that what I need will come to me in due time. There is no hurry. There just is…

I forgot to add....

I also decided on a facebook sabbatical today too. I am planning to be off for the rest of the month but am not deactivating my account (possibly problematic…nevertheless I will continue) Ironically enough this site and another I go on automatically post updates. Ah well…. Anyone reading this via facebook – you can reach me on my mobile if needed… If you don’t have the number or don’t know how to get it, I doubt you need it :)

Day 3 and going well

So today presented a couple of challenges. I had a cooking demonstration on which generally results in the clients asking me to eat the food with them (I generally cook breads and pastries because they best demonstrate the appliance) and the staff offering me great coffee… both offers I happily manage to refuse.
Then in the afternoon – I get a “blast from the past” call from an old friend (of the “with benefits” persuasion). I haven’t heard from or seen him in over 6 months. Regardless I happily declined his play date offer as well. This detox is about ridding my life of crap that doesn’t serve me well. He unfortunately falls into that catagory.
At the end of this month I am hoping to have a clearer mind, a clearer body and stronger sense of self worth. I deserve it!

Pre detox starts tomorrow

2 days of pre detox then away we go. A month of clean eating and living, no sugar, no caffine and no alcohol. Add to that a conscious effort to meditate regularly, exercise daily, abstinence (not so much of a problem for me at the moment)body brushing and absolute 100% care taken of me. Looking forward to the challenge actually.

I'm Happy!

ha ha let me clarify
I’m happy with the way this is going. I understand the limitations of changing peoples perspectives and that people need to want to improve things for me to be able to help them. However I am currently managing to share positive messages and people seem to respond well.

No guarentees that I won’t be lynched soon for being too happy!
