It’s been a while since I last went on training runs. Last year, I lost quite a bit of weight, but had trouble finding the time to train. I had also reached a plateau when it came to weight loss and fitness, meaning that I absolutely needed to run or train in order to lose more weight. I came to a standstill recently, as I was covering more than 10km by walking every day. I noticed that it was no longer enough to elevate my heart beat or to put a strain or burn onto my muscles.

Spencer is the odd man out at Luzon. He should have seen it coming but he didn’t. The girls are going to try and get him out next.

-So which teachers are Canadian? asks Student A.
-T. Range, T. K, and T. R., answers Student E.
-How about T. Br?
-He’s American, as is T. J., I interject.
-How about T. Be?
-He’s from England.
-What’s the difference between them all?
-It’s the way that they all say “out”. Canadians will say it this way. The English say it this way and Americans say it this way.
(Student E demonstrates to Student A, quite hilariously while I listen in. This whole conversation took place in Mandarin.)

I had to quickly change phones last week, and I decided to get a Sony Xperia Z1, even though the Z2 would be released fairly quickly. Spending a week with a broken phone was slightly annoying, and I needed to change, so the Z1 was it. I managed to find one that wasn’t too expensive and splurged on my first purchase since coming back from the Philippines after Chinese New Year.

We’re back for another season of Survivor. This isn’t the first time that I’ve seen this on television, but it will be interesting to see what will happen and how long the tribes will stay distinct. There are three groups, brains, beauty and brawn.
Who actually watches these recaps?
The tribe is back and they are talking. Monica isn’t happy. Ciera wants her mom back in the game. We’ll see what happens. Tyson wants Monica and Gervase to go with him to the finals. He shows the idol to Monica and Gervase as a countermove in order to stop any dalliances with returning players. Monica wants to be on both sides, to maximize her chances of winning.
Katie joins her mom at Redemption. Tina isn’t sure she will be able to compete in the duel.
