I have decided to change up my Taking Stock series that I’ve been doing for a while and switching over to a Life Lately. Content wise I don’t think it will be much of a change except for the title. So read up and check out what has been happening in my life lately.
Training for a 10km
I’m currently in training for a 10km race. It is so daunting because I’ve never ran that long distance before. My training is going well, I do most of my training at the gym and from yesterday I did my first jog outside. My jog yesterday was 8km – the longest I’ve ever ran ever! And my inner thighs are feeling the burn today. The race is is just over 2 weeks, wish me luck!
In my last post I mentioned how I was having skin troubles. Well I eventually threw in the towel on DIY treatments and went to the doctor and he put me on Accutane. I’ve been on it for the past 1.5 months and it has been working well for me. The sucky part is all the side effects which I’m experiencing in full force.
South African women have been under attack even more than usual lately with the surge of GBV. It’s disheartening to know that we aren’t safe *anywhere* literally. I feel pretty much useless in this situation because I feel like all I do is raise awareness and express my anger on social media. My social media community is mostly women who already are aware and are as equally angry – so I’m feeling a bit stuck.
South African Idols
This is me every year: Uurgh, I’m so over Idols, I’m not watching it this year. Fast forward 2 months later and I’m deep in Idols culture and I’m voting for my favourites. I do think that this year’s TOP 10 is much better than in recent years, so there is that. My fave this year is Sneziey – I love her personality, she’s so cute and has a voice to match!
