I WROTE A HUGE BLOODY POST HERE AND TUMBLR HAS EATEN IT HOLY SHIT. To summarise my once eloquent, concise re-cap on life sans-internet;
- I’m loving weightlifting so much. I’m training alongside Olympians and Commonwealth Games medalists and my Coach is beyond brilliant and ugh I feel like I’ve found my place. It’s such a wonderful feeling.
- I’m competing at the end of August and I am very excited.
- Fern and I are moving into our own apartment and I am 10/10 pumped.
- I fly to Africa in two weeks!
- There is still no Internet at my house and it’s finals fortnight so I probably won’t be back here until I get back from Africa.
Sorry this update was shit- I blame Tumblr and its tendency to cock up.
See you in August!
I’m writing an essay on the effects weight-based television shows (The Biggest Loser) and ‘fitspo’ has on society and I’m 98% sure I’m deleting this as soon as I finish.
The portrayal of fitness in the media is hurting my head.
I’m feeling guilty for being a (small) cog in such a destructive machine.
(also I might now be doing weightlifting (I am)) (and dropping journalism) (and also I got a back squat PR) (and I met two puppies)
Ferf and I have run into Internet troubles and won’t have any form of interwebs at our house for another 2 weeks.
Any posts made will be from Uni so don’t expect heaps (also don’t expect our glorious snapchats).
I don’t know why I’m bothering telling you about Fern (enthusiasticplant) because she never goddamn posts anything anyway, but there we go.
Have lovely weeks! YAAY!
This guy is my favourite person in the whole Universe so here is a photo of us because photos of us are very rare.
Despite a lot of things being scary and shit, tonight was still pretty good.
I’m beginning to look like I lift, I got my fastest 1.5km run to date, my OHS form was tweaked dramatically, and a place has been confirmed for me at an intro oly lifting session. I also can’t get Typhoid now which is extremely good.

People are the fucking worst. All was going well until a bunch of dick weeds decided to ruin everything.
I went from post-workout elation to crying on my floor. Thanks fuckers.
Does my calling everybody ‘lovely’ condescend people or make me look like a stupid twat in any way?
I cringe whenever I see or hear somebody using the words ‘sweetie’, ‘honey’, ‘darling’, ‘babe’ or any of the like and it’s just occurred to me that by calling everybody ‘lovely’ I am in fact being the biggest hypocrite in the world.
If you truly think ‘lovely’ is on the same level as ‘sweetie’ please let me know so I can cease being disgustingly overbearing immediatley.
I got my vaccinations today which is cool but it just so happens to be the day overhead squats have been programmed. Brilliant.
If there is one movement where having a slightly numb shoulder is not ideal, this is it. Good timing, Alicen.
Looks like this girl is either scaling back the weight or doing something entirely different. Grrreat.
I think I prefer firm, mature cheese to creamy cheese now.
This changes everything.
I don’t know who I am anymore.
What kind of thing are you supposed to buy as a wedding present for your Dad?
My only ideas are matching couple’s workout shirts (ie: ‘Swole’ ‘Mates’ & ‘Shake’ and ‘Bake’) and somehow I feel like this isn’t very practical or ~classy~. Are daughters even supposed to buy their fathers/~new mums~ wedding presents?
MALAWI TRIP IS PAID IN FULL!
Now all I need to do is get vaccinations and this little lady is off to Africa!
