Moon Phases

It's been a pretty meh week. I'm not in a stellar mood. Just feeling a little down and blue, am sure the weekend will perk me up tho.

I have a friend who says it has to do with the moon. And look at that, tonight is full moon. She once told me she was going to track my moods via my blog posts and map them to the moon cycle to see if there was any sort of correlation. I think that would be quite interesting ... although I don't believe the moon should have anything to do with my mood since it wasn't till this morning when I saw on Facebook something about the moon being full and blue last night or tonight that I even remembered the conversation with her. And I was in a funny mood before that. It's not exactly a bad mood, it's more a blue mood. It's like when you're surrounded by people but still feel lonely. It's one of those days. Yesterday and the day before were not stellar moods either, but they were more prickly with annoyance moods. And I'm sure work had plenty to do with that. Although I definitely could feel I was prone to them ... like when you wake up and you just know someone is going to annoy the crap out of you. That.

So anyway, here's hoping for the weekend. The Trucker came for dinner on Monday night. On Tuesday I went to a very quiet (just 3 of us) SCM Dinner and then The Trucker came over last night again.

I went to a Nutritionist on Monday. I'm going back to her today to get an eating plan. I'm a little nervous of what she's going to advise. I don't eat terribly, but I think I snack really badly. And The Trucker, well you know how he insists on dessert after dinner every night. It's a bad habit he's gotten me into. I've also cancelled my Personal Trainer (last session with him was last night). Gym is super boring me and I haven't been able to get back into since coming back from Vietnam. Now I know, I've never been super into the whole gym thing so I tend to change it up every few months. So now I'm off to give Boot Camp a try in September. I'm a little terrified, but hey, it's only 4 weeks, I'm sure I'll survive. I also want to start swimming again. I last did that when I was dating Varen, I think. Oh, and one of the guys at work has offered to take me paddling with him at Emmerentia. I've been interested in paddling since before I moved to Jozi, it's just I never really thought it was something I could do on my own because I definitely couldn't lift a canoe onto the roof of my car or get it down again ... Anyway, I'm keen to give it a try and see if I like it. I definitely think I am lacking the fun-factor in my exercise routine which is why I get so bored and demotivated with it. But that said, it is hard to find things you enjoy when you're not a very sporty person and running and cycling don't really appeal. Anyhoo, we'll see how it goes.

What else ...? Nothing I can think of right now. Let's hope I perk up over the weekend :)

The moon could probably play a role, it's not the first time I've heard that theory. Allegedly there are a lot more stab wounds in any ER over a full moon too (this is what I've heard anyway).

That Emmerantia thing sounds like buckets of fun!

Tomorrow is Spring day, so I demand that you feel better for that 'kay? ;-)
