Count Down to OZ!

this is my little bit of the internet where I blab on about weightlifting, feminism and my obsession with Ellie Goulding.

Look what I found!

Yay! There is a small body building shop about 5 mins from my house that I walked past today. I popped in and discovered that amongst the steroids they had a variety of Quest bars. Now I can try some different flavours without committing to a big box.

I also grabbed this liquid grip to try out instead of buying more gloves that will inevitably rip.

Also big ups to the owner who asked me if I lifted? I said yes and then he offered me a brochure. Not one word of bro science left his mouth! I will definitely shop there again now :)

1. I added pumpkin spice syrup to my iced latte. Pretty sure it was guaranteed diabetes in liquid form!

2. Say Yes to Tomatoes face mask.

3. Appropriate PJs for a 30-something.

4. When I lived in the US everyone had college branded sweatpants. I went to a teeny UK school which no one had heard of so I used to say I went to Hogwarts. The number of people who believe me was ridiculous! Yesterday I came across these sweatpants and had to buy them :)

5. Chvrches again.

Not too shabby! LTron just earned 902 points on Fitocracy with “Workout”.





Let’s stop HIV in New York City

  • If you are HIV-negative, PEP and PrEP can help you stay that way.
  • If you are HIV-positive, PEP and PrEP can help protect your partners.


Daily PrEP

PrEP is a daily pill that can help keep you HIV-negative as long as you take it every day.

  • Ask your doctor if PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis) may be right for you.
  • Condoms give you additional protection against HIV, other sexually transmitted infections, and unintended pregnancy.


Emergency PEP

If you are HIV-negative and think you were exposed to HIV, immediately go to a clinic or emergency room and ask for PEP (Post-exposure  Prophylaxis).

  • PEP can stop HIV if started within 36 hours of exposure.
  • You continue taking PEP for 28 days.

Many insurance plans including Medicaid cover PEP and PrEP. Assistance may be available if you are uninsured. Visit NYC Health’s website to find out where to get PrEP or PEP in New York City.

This is such a giant step that barely any people know about it seems, so amazing to see progress in the treatment of HIV

I honestly thought this might be exaggeration but the CDC says that PrEP is 92% effective. Damn. Damn.

reblogging because this deserves waaaay more attention D:

For UK Peeps - You can access PEP from A&E departments and Sexual Health clinics.

Hey im a little curious about weight training and how it is for girls. How heavy do you squat and at what point do you stop increasing the weight?
countdowntooz countdowntooz Said:


Training for women is literally the same as it is for men. It’s just that women get these questions while men don’t. I squat 225# right now. I will stop increasing the weight when I die. Jk. I’ll still increase the weight in my afterlife.

Slow but steady. I decided to make it super thick and chunky for winter. 🍂🍁🌳🌰

I had to drink 2 litres of water this morning before my scan and dudes that is not fun! Especially when the appointments run 20 mins late!

As we thought (thanks for all the feedback/messages) I have some small cysts on my right ovary and all the symptoms I have been having are related to that. It is also triggering early periods. Luckily they are not big enough for surgery so in a weeks time I have to go back to my Dr and we can discuss trying a some ways to manage the cysts like birth control options.

The scan professional also found a small mass on my left ovary. She doesn’t think it is anything sinister, but has suggested I return in 3 months for another scan just to check on it.

I can’t believe something so small made me feel so terrible. I am really good with pain, but this has been horrible. I also chatted to a lady at work today who is having the same issues and we have the exact same symptoms. Her scan is next week and she was really scared, so I was happy that I could reassure her that it was painless apart from the overwhelming urge to pee!

Many thanks for all the support you guys have given me whilst I have been feeling so poorly. It is crazy how common this is, but you wouldn’t know until you ask about it!

You're an overweight disgusting short troll that messed up sam's life that has a strong entitlement filter about what is owed to her when in real life you're just a horrid nasty selfish self obsessed fat bitch.

Wow Anon from Milton Keynes writing away on your iPhone. You sure have your knickers in a twist!

  • I am short - correct. Congrats for using your eyes.
  • If we are going via BMI then yes I am classed as overweight, but we all know that is measuring format is to be used for mainly sedentary people which I am not. 
  • Self obsessed - Yes. I am my own champion. Why wouldn’t I want the very best for myself in all areas of life?
  • Troll - No that would appear to be what you are if you go around sending messages like this.

May I also suggest that you address your use of the run on sentence, because it made your message very hard to read. Some additional punctuation would really help the flow of your writing. 

In closing I would like to point out that I wasn’t specifically talking about the person you mentioned, but in that case he was old enough to make his own decisions whether they ended up being good ones or not. May I suggest that if you don’t like reading about my life that you refrain from reading my blog. 

You have a great rest of the day! 


Small rant coming up but I got talking to my happily-coupled-up-for-almost-7-years friend last night and we were discussing dating.

She hasn’t been on a date since she was 17 when she met her current boyfriend and she said she wouldn’t even have a clue how to date now, if she was to become…

I would like to say it gets better, but for me it hasn’t. I am now dealing with 2 types of men….

Type 1: Man in 30’s had his heart broken in 20’s and is now scared of commitment and runs away/fucks around at the slightest mention of a relationship.

Type 2: Man in 30’s has already had serious relationship and kids. Now wants relationship, but already has kids and doesn’t want to do it again because it’s hard work.

Neither fit what I want hence why I am single.
