Halloween Jack at The Barfly Camden

Keeping it up

I had a post ready for Friday, but I needed to add a few things and proof read it before publishing. I was planning on doing that at lunchtime, but I was busy all day, and then I had to leave early to go to Secret Cinema, so I never got to finish it. Here it is now. I really don’t do middle ground… It’s always all or nothing, it seems. I don’t do the whole trying stuff a little bit and see what happens. What’s the point of that? First things first. During the past few days, I’ve noticed another #nonscalevictory from the Whole30 programme. For the past… how many days has it been now? 47 days! Amazing… Anyway, yeah, so for the past 47 days there’s something that has changed in me, and it’s not my weight (which it has, of course). My attitude. A couple of people have told me that I look genuinely happy these days and the truth is, I feel happy. I’m not sure if mood swings are one …

Of ups and downs… and further down.

I have the feeling that I’ve only been complaining lately… Possibly not so much over here, but face to face. When people can pretty much figure out you’re not at your 100% with just one glance, I guess it’s time to start snapping out of it. Truth is, I don’t deal well with bad moods. Since end of last week, I’ve been feeling a bit down. I’ve had too many things going on in my mind, and I wasn’t sure how to deal with all of it, so I pretty much decided to shut down and don’t deal with anything at all. Last weekend, I spent it in bed. I wasn’t necessarily sleeping all the time, sometimes I was just staring at the ceiling/wall, or maybe watching series, or yes, sleeping. My brother was tentatively poking his head around to check I was still alive from time to time, and to check whether I was going to have lunch and the usual basic-survival stuff. On Saturday, I made a bit of an effort to go …

The Sunday Post

This past week has been weird. I fell sick on my last few days of holidays, and spent a couple of days working from home, feeling poorly, sneezing and being all around disgusting. By Thursday, I was feeling much better, even if my throat still hurt and my voice sounded a bit broken. I have the feeling I’ve wasted a week of my life overall, but what can you do, right? You just cover yourself in layers, take meds, bring tonnes of tissue wherever you go and move on. On Thursday I discovered a little place around Soho that serve juice, tea and smoothies. It’s called Juice Tonic, and it was awesome. If you’ve never been and are in the area, make sure to pay them a visit. The guys are very friendly and look like wizards when they’re preparing your drink. They’re also up for a laugh if you’re in a chatty mood! Yesterday, I attended the latest Halloween Jack gig, at the 229 in Great Portland Street. The venue was really cool, not …
