Today is a reading day.
I’ve had one lecture so far and yet I’ve been set two lots of work (neither for the lecture I’ve had) to do by Thursday and Friday.
But you know what?
I’m really enjoying having work to do again!
When I first started at secondary school I loved doing my work in the evening (massive nerd alert!) and I never completely got rid of my like for a routine which involves structured work.
Something about it just satisfies me.
Lunch today doesn’t exactly fit in with the image of a healthy-living blog – pizza. But one of my flatmates offered me a bit of the pizza he was cooking (re-heating) and who am I to turn down free food? On the whole I am already known as the “healthy one” but I don’t want to make my flatmates feel like I’m preachy or snobby about food so junk food is just a reality I’m planning on living with occasionally.
This afternoon was food shopping time. I had several fresh ingredients to buy as well as a couple of extras. Have I mentioned how much I love the little local farm shop in the neighbourhood? Oh, I have? Well I’m going to carry on mentioning it! I bought 6 free range eggs, mushrooms, a carrot, an avocado, an onion, a garlic bulb and a banana all for £2.80 🙂
I went shopping with the friend I mentioned yesterday and on the way in we decided to stop for coffee. I got an iced latte frappe which was pretty tasty but a little too sweet so I couldn’t finish it. It’s nice having someone to go to the cafe with, I missed that about home before. The neighbourhood around campus is lovely, really friendly and compact with everything you could need (excluding clothes shops but seriously, how often will I buy clothes) and it’s just a brief walk or a quick cycle in which is great for me!
Today I also finally found the time to join the gym 🙂
I really cannot wait to start going and the fitness classes sound fantastic, I’m going to have a hard time choosing which classes to pick because I can’t possibly go to all of them!
I’m quite pleased with myself this evening. Not only did I cook a healthy, tasty dinner, I also made a positive move towards fulfilling one of my October goals because I made plenty enough to freeze about two to three portions. Pretty good going if you ask me!
Anyway I’m afraid I’ll have to leave it at that because I really need get back to my reading, I’ve got a way to go. It’s The Good Soldier if anyone’s interested in giving some modern English literature a try. It’s not an easy read but it’s very well written and the story is intriguing from the word go.
Has anyone got any good fitness class suggestions for me (apart from Body Pump – they don’t offer it)?
What are you reading at the moment?
