    Tuesday Spent the day at the office today. And after work me and two coworkers went to the climbing gym. First time in a long time for me! The actual climbing was 💩 Need to awaken those muscles again. But I still had a great time. Even if I could just climb the easiest problems it was still a lot of fun When I got home from climbing I spent a couple of hours working on the house. I think I'll finish framing the wall tomorrow. No walk, or swim, or sleeping outdoors today. We sleep with an open window now, which just makes me want to sleep outdoors even more, to get more of that lovely fresh night air. Unfortunately the mosquitoes and no-see-ums have awakened, so next time I might have to bring a bug net.

    My oldest son always wakes up early, like 5 am early some days... So for me it's definitely the late nights that are the most quiet.

    Flea Gonna Do Stuff

    We hang-dry all our clothes. Hang them on the evening and they'll be dry by the morning after. Your grown up brother should know these things and not rage about not being able to wash! I mean, wtf? Good on you for not going out of your way to solve a problem that isn't even a proper problem!

    Monday This day for sure went by faster than expected! Also got my walk 🚶‍♂️ (20 min) and my workouts in (🐴, warm up and main workout, plus handstand stuff 🤸‍♂️)! We now have furniture in our living room, so less space for me to work out ☹️ 😛 A few of us from NF Prime are competing on The Fit League (https://www.thefitleague.io/). Last week I logged something for 6 days. My goal for this week is to do all 7 days.

    Sunday WTH happened to this day? Didn't even get a proper walk in... I did do other things, but no walk, no swim and no workout (except for the daily dare one, but that was just two minutes...) Tomorrow I'll make sure to at least go for a walk!
  6. 310 ✔️🐝 Have we done all the exercises they have in their library now? Starting to see a few repeats now aren't we?

    Today we've been at my parent's place, celebrating Mother's Day (which is actually tomorrow here in Sweden , but tomorrow we have other things planned). It's been a really good day. My mom seemed really happy with the presents I gave her, and I always love eating my mom's food. Dad and I also went to my grandparents (mom's side) and helped them cutting and chopping wood for their furnace this coming winter. We drove there, but I decided to walk back home to my parent's house, which is a 3 km walk that took me 30 minutes 🚶‍♂️. When I got back I was pretty warm from the wood chopping and the walking, so I decided to go for a swim in the village lake. For some reason that lake is always freezing cold, so no one had even bothered putting the floating docks in yet. But that didn't stop me ☺️🏊‍♂️ After a quick swim I went back home and mom gave me a haircut. Long over-due! And then I had a long hot lovely shower. After showering I went out to their garage to take a look at dad's new toy Even got to take it for a spin. So much fun! 😃 Right before going home we had the first Swedish strawberries for the season, with some vanilla ice cream. Lovely. I love Swedish strawberries. They're so sweet and flavorful 🍓 They're so much better than the bland, boring, fresh strawberries that are available the rest of the year at the store. As I said, a great day! 😊

    ❤️ Didn't even notice it tbh Yes, it does make sense. And to some extent I agree. Which is why I'm not mad at my wife for saying/thinking it.

    Lots of points here I can really relate to. I do enjoy cooking, it's fun, and it's also kind of like meditation to me. It's also a chance to still be creative, which is something I love, but that is different from the creating I do on the computer all day. I'd say cooking 100% helps my mental health. Ohh, and yeah, kitchen science ftw! You're right about enjoying the quiet time when everyone else is asleep. When the kids have gone to bed it's nice to get some grown-ups-time with my wife. And when she's gone to bed it's nice to get some time to just do whatever I want for a little while.

    No No No (this used to be a problem, but now that I'm not commuting I can start with dinner earlier) Yes. The problem is that I'm not getting our house renovation done. She wants me to spend less time playing chef, and more time playing carpenter

    As I wrote above, my wife thinks I spend too much time cooking. Making meals that are too elaborate. Then, this morning, as I scrolled through Instagram I found this post. I quickly went through the list in my head 1. Probably some days 2. Yes, mostly 3. Both are important 4. No 5. I don't think so. But I also know from previous experience that it's sometimes hard to notice these things on your own. It's usually such a gradual change it's hard to pick up on. 6. A little bit, maybe? I mean, it feels good to eat food I know does my body good. Kind of similar to how it feels good to eat food that's locally produced. 7. No 8. No. 9. No. 10. How I eat doesn't make me feel more or less at peace with myself. So I was a little worried at the start there, but then towards the end, with more "no" answers, it felt better again. I thought about it a couple of times during the day, and now, tonight, I went to the source of that list and read the full article: https://www.rachaelhartleynutrition.com/blog/2016/08/health-conscious-or-disordered-eating In the article each point is explained much more in detail, and now I'm much more confident again that my mind is in the right place. I've been really tired (both mentally and physically) today, and really unmotivated at work, at least up until lunch. I did get some more energy after noon so at least I met my deadline. But not much more than that. I wanted to get a workout done today, because we'll be away all day tomorrow and most of Sunday. But I was just too tired. Did get a 40 minute walk in at least 🚶‍♂️. That felt good, but when I got back home my legs were throbbing. Usually a 40 minute walk would be nothing. I think it's a lack of sleep that's the root cause. Because I've not been sleeping enough my body hasen't had a fair chance to recover from my workouts. And still, here I am, at 1 am... Why is it so hard to get to bed?! And I still haven't done my daily dare. But I'll do that now, and then it's off to bed 💤

    Thursday Had a meeting at work today, so I spent the day at the office. A coworker and I decided to go for a run before lunch 🏃‍♂️. Ran for 35 minutes, and one the way back I stopped and jumped in to the ocean for a quick swim 🏊‍♂️ That was pretty much all the exciting stuff I got to do today, and that is frustrating. I have so many things I want to do, but no time to do it. Not sure what I spend all time on really 🙁 Need to come up with a better plan/schedule. I talked to my wife about it, and she thinks I spend to much time cooking food. And I can totally see her point. Today's dinner took two hours from I stared until we all had finished eating. Takes forever to cut/prep veggies for five people, and then I made vegan lentil "meat"balls where I first had to cook the lentils for 25 minutes, and then make the mixture that was to be sauteed for a bit before finally making the lentil balls and baking them in the oven. To that I made some tzatziki sauce. Everyone agreed it was very tasty, but my wife says cooking plus eating should take an hour at most. So, next week she offered to do all planning, shopping and cooking. To give me more time to work on the house. (Hopefully finish framing the wall I'm working on.) Hopefully she can show me some meal ideas, and perhaps even techniques for how to get lunch and dinner on the table faster.

    Another kitchen experiment I've run recently, that was very successful, was this open faced sandwich I had a small bowl of leftover brown rice in the fridge, and another container with some leftover red lentils. Probably like ½ cup each. So I just dumped them both in my food processor with a splash of water and some baking powder and blended it all together. Spread it out in a rectangular shape on a baking sheet and baked the "bread" in the oven until it looked done. Turned out very tasty (I had previously cooked the lentils in veggie stock). And it was the perfect vessel for my home made tomato chutney, some spinach, smoked tofu, avocado and a couple of slices of tomato 😋 I had no idea if the rice+lentil idea I had would work out, but it did, and I was very happy with the way it turned out 😃

    A few days ago I tried another recipe from the fermentation book I borrowed at the library. It was a recipe for a buckwheat bread. Soak buckwheat and sunflower seeds. Drain (don't rinse), and then let sit on the counter for 24 hours to ferment. Then blend it up and pour in to a bread pan. Bake for an hour, and done! I added some linseed/flax to the top. Unfortunately it deflated a bit. But the taste was great. I've tried a bunch of different spreads; peanut butter, peanut butter with banana, only banana, butter and honey, butter and cheese, hummus with different toppings... Here's one with hummus, tomato and hemp hearts, and one with hummus, spinach and red bell pepper. Favorite topping/spread was just mashed banana. Close second was hummus with whatever on top, like the photo above. If you like the sourdough taste, you'd love this. I've done similar breads before, and they always come out tasting great. The problem is always getting them to bake right. I want a bread with lots of tiny air pockets, but they often deflate, like this one did. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. I've also had a few previous attempts come out way under baked. This recipe said to bake it for 50 minutes, but I think I had to have it in the oven for 70 minutes... Here's a very similar recipe to the one in my book: https://breadtopia.com/gluten-free-fermented-buckwheat-bread/

    Thanks Practice, practice, practice I have this one spot in my house where I can practice kicking up where I have walls/doors on three sides for support. That helped me feeling safe. And I started with kicking up in a headstand. With pillows on the floor to give me a soft landing if/when I fell over (which would be more like falling towards one of the walls/doors and sliding down towards the floor ) When it comes to kicking up to a handstand the latest thing I learned is that it really helps to activate your core even before kicking up. It both makes it easier to get up, and to find stability and balance once you're upside down.
