Lifting out

Creative Commons BY-SA 4.0 mark'Passion fruit' by Paul Munhoven

Hauling myself out of a slump is tricky. If I try too hard, I rail against myself like I somehow want to see me fail. It’s ridiculous, and yet it’s true.

I mentioned that I signed up to this 10 week challenge at my gym which is meant to be all full-on, and it can be, but given I’m a bit broken I’m taking it relatively easy.

What it’s about for me is having an …

Some whine? Don’t mind if I do…

I’m in kind of a slump. I’ve been here before, it will pass, but talking about it is better than not talking about it I guess.

Being slumpy makes me not want to do things that I know will help me lift out of the slump because my brain goes ‘But I don’t waaaaaannnt to’ like a three year old. So it’s a self perpetuating slump. A never ending circle of slumpiness. Slumposity (they are …

Holy fucking what? Crossfit

In the fine tradition of having ZERO femdom or sex content on a femdom sex blog, here’s another post with no femdom and no sex…

I mentioned that I had gone to two weeks of ‘intro to crossfit’ classes. Those 6 sessions were about teaching the moves and proper form and getting used to the format. So there was talk, practice, and then getting in a 10-15 minute workout.

If you don’t know what crossfit …
