New chapter – Integrity and Democracy

I’ll be posting more about Integrity and Democracy in Digital Media in the upcoming weeks on here, and on my twitter as well. Then writing a more proper article about it all. And today I took on to be the editor of an anthology for the whole class – so with a whole bunch of our articles combined into one piece; one anthology. Actually got two more people to work with me on that bit, too, in the end. I think we’re going to be a really good team!

Just installed WordPress from WordPress.org for another course, so hopefully should learn to customize these themes and designs a bit better for the future also. We’ll have a real client to deliver and present for for that one. It’ll be good for our design portfolios and practice! And yeah, I’m aware that it looks a bit messy on this blog now when you write a lot on here. I don’t like the fonts and structure of this theme too much overall. Definitely could to with some customization. But so yeah, that’s happening, so it’s all going to be good.

Finally, been catching up on Homeland. That show was one of the reasons I went to live in Tel Aviv before. The format for it came from there, in case anyone didn’t know; they sold it to the U.S.

What else? Oh, we’ll do lots of project work.

Balance your lunges

Hi everyone, I wasn’t sure whether I’m going to continue blogging here or start a kind of vlog on youtube. But for now, I was thinking I’ll continue blogging, because it’s pretty dark outside and it’s much better to then type than shoot something with bad lighting.

Can’t really give up yet, with 44 faithful followers, can I? What’s that – that’s like two baseball teams almost!!! BTW I heard baseball season started.

Today I was doing a 1 hour workout at home, because I have a goal planner on my fridge where I can fill out a line for every 1 hour session completed of some kind of workout – so I wanted to check that off.

Pick of the day was to do a bit of side-lunges with weights and such for shaping my glutes for summer. As I was stacking on a little bit of different weights onto my dumbbells I made sure I fitted in a bit of couch work too. No… not, like, relaxing on the couch;) But rather lying on my stomach with my legs out over the edge and doing kind of “frog lifts” with the soles of my feet touching and all, if you know what I mean!?

I also laid down as if I was relaxing on the couch and then did some triceps, and then stood up on all fours on the couch and worked on triceps with the weights to the side… anyway, so I haven’t been piling on the weights for these kinds of moves as I’ve gone back to listening to Tracy Anderson – going for a more lean & light dance body.

However I did add on some weight for the leg work and tried a kind of deadlift with my dumbbells in each hand (I still want a bubble-butt like, and you need some weight for that to progress well in my opinion), and toes up on a double-folded blanket. Saw somebody do that on Instagram in a gym but with a plank under his toes. Try it… it’s crazy! What for, I’m not hundred on. Felt effective on the backside of my thighs, maybe?

So, then I tried lunges to the sides…

– and honestly I feel so awkward every time I do that! I feel sort of out of balance and it just doesn’t sit right with me. Yeah, and then I had a protein shake and relaxed… binge-watching Season 3 of the old prison show on HBO called “Oz”, until I found this super relevant Feldenkrais lesson (below). It grounded me and taught me better balance already. Much recommend it! Also, I’m so for giggling away during a practice at little random jokes, ha, you know Yoga with Adrianne on youtube?  – That kind of thing:)

At last – Now I can check off all; ‘SPA-time’ (which I had after breakfast, with some mud mask and foot massage), ‘Feldenkrais lesson’, ‘1-hour workout’, and ‘weekly blog’ on my goal sheet, hooray! Plus I had time to write for uni. Fantastic feeling.

Yay, so tomorrow I plan to check off the one I call “meal plan/make something nice” by making tacos!;) See, I don’t set my goals very high all the time;) Makes for more of a motivation to me. I usually drink lots of protein smoothies, so… not like that’s bad but it’s good to practice those culinary skills, too, I reckon:) Oh BTW any ‘fit recipes’ you got, please share ’em! I got American pancakes down pretty good. Thinking of doing some kind of egg whites in muffin forms with bits of healthy stuff in… broccoli perhaps… in the oven — for quick snacks during the day, ya know?! Actually, some skinless chicken would be neat in there too perhaps. My Italian dietitian in the past suggested some sardines on crackers… not the yummiest maybe;)
