Cocktober

Inappropriate title? Perhaps. AHA! Anyway, everyone is going on about October like its approaching Valentines day... like. A big deal. I'm not entirely sure what all the fuss is about, but I have decided as my October resolution I am going to do more stuff. Go to museums, art galleries. Actually see things in London that I used to see before I went back to Cape Town. I'm not sure why I stopped, but going out nowadays seems like such a massive effort. Also, the walking will do me well.

I'm hovering around 61 these days. At least it is closer to 60 than 65. I mean, i would prefer if it were closer to 55. But hell. Baby steps and it is what you get for being a stupid stoner that smokes and drinks your life away.

Today, I have had about 600 cals. All in roasted potatoes. Which is so stupid, but its what I felt like, so I guess there is more work to be done. I feel like my brain isn't functioning all that well at the moment... Oh well. Anyway, so this is my current status quo. Going to catch up on some blogs and go to bed though, because I have felt like a miserable sack of shit lately. ALL I want to do is sleep.

I saw my australian on Saturday, but still didn't get his number, because I may gotten drunk and lost him. Such is the plight of the village drunkard... He does look just like Matthew Crawley from Downton Abbey. *le sigh* Hopefully I will see him again. I also am going to see a flat tomorrow in North London since I have to move in a month, which I am feeling weirdly optimistic about. Anyway, sorry this is boring, but I have nothing to report. Lets make sure October is the best month ever. YAY October YAY!

Peace & Love

600 ain't bad!

I think it's just the fresh start. You know us restricted love. Fresh start, and the new month leads to a new mindset to new goals. Idk....

But your goals are great! Art has meaning, give your life meaning!

It was not boring at all. Your title lol I didn't catch i=on until I started reading your post. You got jokes.

I know you will get back to 55. Like you said just baby steps. So far you sound like you are gaining ground again. I know at one point it was hard for me to stop drinking. I loved the feeling of being buzzed or worse. I would do it at home though. I am scared someone will try and take advantage of me otherwise.

Too bad you lost the cutie. Maybe you will see him again.

Sending you and coco much love for achieving your goal.

Oh my pretty lady, I thought about you every single day that I was gone, and it's so good to be back!
600 cals in a day is good, don't worry about that, and don't talk about roasted potatoes because I love them and I'd go absolutely loony if I were presented with some!
We shall have a good october!!

I like your idea about getting out more often :D I don't have as great opportunities as I'm not in a big city as London is, but I shall go for more walks and keeps my eyes and ears open, maybe something actually will happen around here ;) London is so beautiful to walk abouts anyways! When I traveled there for a week I spent most of the time walking around and even though I'm quick-paced I didn't manage to go everywhere I wanted - but I guess as you live there you have a different approach to London anyways? Love your blog, just started reading it and have lots to catch up on, but you seem strong so you're going to make it to 55 and lower in tiny steps! I believe in you anyways and am really impressed by everything you've had to put up with in the past!! Love and strength :)
