I’ve been working harder, lately.

I’ve been working on my health. Making myself walk every morning until it’s become less of a forcing myself thing and more of a treat I look forward to. I have that time to myself to step away from everything negative. If I want to spend the time brainstorming, I can. If I want to spend it playing Wizards Unite, I can. If I want to listen to the NoSleep Podcast or Bat Force Radio, I do. It’s my time I give myself.

I’ve also been working on eating better. Things better for my body. Better portion sizes. Etc.

But the hard work isn’t just in my health.

I’ve been working on my blog, Wandering NerdGirl.

I’ve been writing reviews and travel posts. I’ve been planning new adventures and ways to make the blog grow. I’ve been getting out and trying new things. The productivity has been great for my mental health.

And on top of THAT, I started a YouTube channel. For travel, nerd things, collecting, etc. Here’s some links:

Harley Quinn Plushie Collection

Harley Quinn shelves

Batman Collection Room

Rocky Horror Picture Show Festival

First Fridays: Star Trek

GameXPloration

Doctor Who TARDIS shelf storage.

It’s been a scary thing to start, but I’m hoping it grows into something wonderful in time.

And, best of all, I’m writing in general, again. It isn’t the best. It isn’t as fast or often as I used to. But I’m working on it.

I’m working harder, guys.

And I’m happy to be getting myself back.

I forgot to mention in the random little update I did in my last post, that my health is sort heading downhill again. I’m starting to get very bad episodes on a much more regular basis. For example: I collapsed on the stairs walking in my house last night, which was pretty scary. Then tonight, I almost fainted walking out of Les Miserables because I was getting so light-headed and dizzy. Now my body is waging war on me, so I’ll have to medicate myself and crash before long.

Point is – I’m NOT used to this. Before the Mysterious Sickness of Doom, I was unstoppable. I was go go go go go all the time, it took a lot to wear me out. I could barely sleep and be good to go. Now it doesn’t matter how much I sleep, I’m so exhausted I’m miserable. We did a few tests on me the other day and found that my blood is all screwed up again and my body is raging even more hell on me than before. Now I have even more medicine. But it made me really think and decide to take my health a little more seriously. I’m not too bad of an eater most of the time, but I’m dieting consciously this time around and trying to pick foods that benefit me and the things I’m lacking in my body for whatever reason – more protein and red meat (even though I do eat meat as it is, my body could use the extra protein and iron), making sure I keep up my electrolytes, managing my portions of food, and trying my hardest to beat my caffeine addiction… Not gonna lie, the cutting out soda part is really rough, but I’m working on it. Seeing as I’m warned against normal excersize, especially since I used to do some harder on my body workouts, I have to mostly rely on the dieting for now.

I’ve lost about 5 pounds so far. Woo!

I shall keep everyone posted as I go. Wish me luck!

Anyway, I’m tired. Time for some reading and sleeping.
