I finally got better and I was planning on starting with the exercises again when this thing happened: I accidentally dropped a plate, the plate knocked over a glass and broke it, the glass fell on my foot and now I have 3 stitches on my toe.
I limp like a moron, I won’t be able to do anything for at least a week.
I think I’ll start with the 30 day shred all over.
I have a cold and I feel terrible.
I couldn’t possibly do anything today, I’d die in the middle. Hopefully, it’ll get better tomorrow but I don’t want to chance it, I really feel ill.
I had to skip two days cause I was sick, I spent 2 days in bed with mint tea and I felt awful, jumping around for 25 minutes would have killed me.
I feel better now but my muscles hurt again after the workout. Great.
I do advanced versions of the exercises, except for push-ups, I intend to keep doing the girl version of those. The normal ones are too much for my wrists. I can hear a crack in the left one every time I do a normal push-up.
The day when I’ll have to switch to level 2 is getting closer. Supposedly it is much more difficult than level 1. I think I’m scared.
I went to see my supervisor to discuss my the topic of my thesis.
She’s really great and I think she’ll be a lot of help.
“Unless you puke, faint or die, keep walking!!!!!”
If this woman can force people into losing 150 pounds, then she can push me enough to get myself in better shape.
I’m really feeling the difference. I feel great.
I’ve come to the point where my muscled don’t hurt next day which is great. New dumbbells still feel really heavy but that will get better in a couple of days.
And I really wasn’t imagining things, the outlines of the muscles on my stomach are visible after the workout. Yay!
So far, this workout was the most difficult one. It’s still the same and yet, halfway through, I felt like I was gonna drop dead.
But I think I’m slowly starting to feel the difference – and I swear I could see muscles on my belly shaping up after the workout.
I’ve got heavier dumbbells and.. Oh. My. God. I’m so sore…
But I worked out at 2 PM and finished all exercises, some of them even in the advanced version.
Yesterday wasn’t the ideal start of a big workout plan cause I worked out at 8:30 PM and that’s not good. Plus I didn’t do all exercises properly since I wasn’t sure what to do.
It’s 2:30 now and I’ve just finished the second workout without stopping for a second. I’ve got to say, wow.. it’s much more difficult when you do it 2 days in a row.
I still feel my muscles are a little bit sore from yesterday and I’ve just added more to what I’ll be suffering from tomorrow.
I’m sweating like a pig but it feels gooooooooooood.
I did the beginner’s versions of the exercises and to be honest, it wasn’t that bad.
I wonder what I’ll feel like tomorrow..
I’m not really trying to lose weight, that wouldn’t do me any good. But I’m in awful shape. I lose breath really quickly and I have absolutely no strength in my arms. I really want to get it together, gain some good muscle weight and feel good about myself. Hopefully, Jillian’s 30 day shred is the way to do it.
Well, I know it’s all thanks to the fact that I am a native Polish and Czech speaker. But still.
Russian is a lovely language.
Cyrillic was no challenge, my vocabulary is steadily getting better and hell, I can understand practically anything I read.
This is awesome.
So far, I’ve written down 6 dreams, all of them from the last 3 months.
I don’t write down every dream I remember, although I do remember a lot of them. Most of the dreams I write down have a wtf quality and it’s a lot of fun to read them.
‘Monica Geller from The Friends and I live in a small wooden house, resisting the zombie apocalypse. We sit on a balcony and watch the zombies walk by. The house is always squeaky clean. (6/14/2012).
So I’m done with my first lesson.
My teacher is really great (have I mentioned she lives nextdoors? So convenient!) so I guess this is going to be fun.
I’m slowly getting used to azbuka, it’s not as difficult as I thought it would. I’m actually pretty impressed that I’m able to get through a text without checking the pronunciation.
Next session on Monday, yay.
I’ve been thinking about learning Russian for quite some time and tomorrow is the day!
Russian is really similar to Czech and Polish (since they are all Slavonic). So because I speak both Czech and Polish, even though I’ve never learnt Russian before, I understand a lot of it. So that’s a huge advantage for me. But I’m not going to underestimate Russian, oh no!
I’m really looking forward to the first lesson.

It wouldn’t be Birmingham without balti, I have been told. So I couldn’t leave the city without trying it. Wiki says that some people believe it was invented in Birmingham. Well, the people who live in the city seem to have no doubts about it. :D
Eating in an Indian restaurant itself was very new to me but balti, oh my god, how do I cook this?! It was incredible and I ate so much, I felt like I was going to give birth to triplets.
I’m going to have to ask about the other stuff I had cause I don’t remember the names at all.
