Shaping up

It’s been about a week-and-a-half since we joined the gym. I’m starting to feel a bit of muscle growing back, albeit ever so slowly. Hopefully I can bulk up a bit just so I look nicer in my Spider-Man t-shirts when the weather warms up again.

Speaking of weather, it’s actually snowing again today! Yay. The snowflakes are rather large at the moment. I can see their shapes and patterns with relative ease. Tallinn looks so nice when it’s covered in white. I’m sure it looks nice when it’s bright and sunny too, I either just can’t remember or came here too late. Summer will return soon enough.

The worst thing about actually exercising regularly now is that I seem to be eating a lot more. It kind of defeats the purpose in a way but I’m not really eating too badly, either, so hopefully I’m still shedding a little bit more day by day. Except for today. I had popcorn. A whole bag. To myself. It was good.

I watched Ghost Rider last night. It wasn’t as bad as I expected. Sure, there were a few cheesy lines (ok, awful) and Cage looks really strange when he points but it was still fun. I don’t know a whole lot about the character but he seemed pretty cool in the movie, plus his bike looked funky.

Time’s going quite fast these days. I don’t feel like I’m doing a whole lot but I somehow seem to be. It’s hard to work out. It’ll be no time before the 12 bottle of juice we bought in a crate runs out. We thought they were on special for 70 EEK. Turns out they were actually going at 200 EEK instead. Whoops. We were too embarrassed to take them back from the register when we discovered the truth after it was swiped. Never mind.

I’ve started reading The Chrysalids, by John Wyndham. I’m only a few chapters in but it’s enjoyable so far. Unfortunately it’s an old, paperback edition that is literally falling apart. If I speed read it might completely disintegrate. Wish me luck.

  1. good to hear youre shaping back into you alter ego of manilness. ive been good this year too. feels wonderful doesnt it? especially when you exercise AND eat well.

    ive been job hunting, and two poor sets of bastards have seperately offered me a job. ones an administrative coordinator and the other is a sales analyst thingo. who wouldve thought ross le’d get a job?

    mind you, im still doing theatre on the side now. getting a job is just a means to getting some cash for going overseas. la will be before year end, mark my words. mind you though, im extremely envious over tallinn in snow. it sounds great. hope youre well champ.


  2. You got offered two jobs? They actually sound like decent positions, too.

    I dunno if there’s hope for me yet or not. Probably not after taking 20 months off after graduation. :O

  3. healthier food always tastes better if you’ve been doing physical activity. i eat about twice as much now than when i did as a fatshit.
