Darkfoxx 44: Ummmmmm ..... Stuff?

Recommended Posts

Ummmmmm ..... sooooooo ..... last challenge is over??? 

 

I kinda lost 11 days there while I was away, aaaaaaaand forgot that challenge was one of the reasons I was keeping (slack ass as it were) contact with my friends. 

 

This cycle looks to be little better galavanting-wize. I'm theoretically off to Abu Dhabi next week (leave it to DH's job to approve travel at the very last minute possible), and Challenge ends the day after I get back from DH's first real vacation since the move - in Sri Lanka. 

 

So. 

 

Probably won't be starting any lofty fitness plans this cycle. 

 

Will continue to Keto to the best of my abilities. Hoping to post a 'what i eat in a day' video this month ... super meant to for all my keto newb friends last month but flaked. 

 

Will continue to take pupper for her walks as long as the weather holds out. 

 

Will continue with my socialization so I don't goes crazy. 

 

Will continue to keep minimalism in mind as I spend more time than I'd like cruising the malls. 

 

Will continue to do what I can to try and yank DH out of his self pity/adjusting to a new location spin. 

 

Will formulate a plan that is going to cost a little money and not be as convenient as I want it to be re: fitness going forward. I'm going to have to compromise and I DON'T WANT TO. But, self-motivation is absolutely not happening if this past ... ummmm ... year? Two years? has taught me anything. I don't has it without that carrot of race bling to dangle in front of myself. I'm currently trying to wrap my brain around committing 4 weeks to a personal trainer - and paying for that. Don't Wanna. Friends Love Him. He Will Come To My Building. 

 

WHINE.

Lols. You guys are the bestest.

I’m alive.

The trip to Abu Dhabi was approved super last minute - aaaaaaand we’re here after 2 itinerary changes, and an unexpected plane delay that turned into 5 hours in the Muscat airport because we missed our connecting flight by 5 minutes.

Whoo.

Food was absolute shit yesterday - I’m digging myself out of that hole today.

DH may or may not be having a light work day - I’m dragging ass at the hotel debating on whether I want to sit by the pool and actually plan things to do/sketch a rough itinerary, or sleep more.

C’mon body - it’s only a 1 hour time difference from home!

Yesterday

Food was so-so and dinner ended up being a surprise buffet that was expensive for no reason + so salty it was gross. Suuuuuuuuper not worth it - but was at the hotel.

Had 2 glasses of wine I probably shouldn’t have, but enjoyed them.

Got my steps in at: a mall with mammoth bones, a beachy area and the Grand Mosque.

Today

Visited the Louvre - yep, you read that right - it’s franchised out, and have napped this afternoon. Debating over whether to leave the hotel for dinner or just grab stuff in the executive lounge, which had enough in the way of heavy snacks we could have eaten that and been happy. Would have been better than the damn buffet.

So are you guys in Abu Dhabi, or was that something separate? I think I missed out on you guys' itinerary ...  :P

@SkyGirl: we are in Abu Dhabi for the week for DH’s work.

Since my last post, I’ve:

Visited 2 malls, garnered a comment about being appropriately dressed at one (the expats here don’t really cover up - they’re supposed to, but it isn’t enforced - and I was cold, so I had my shawl on), saw the Disney of heritage villages (it’s not exploitation if you’re doing it to yourself, right?), buzzed through a women’s handicraft Center (it isn’t terribly tourist friendly and I let myself get intimidated too easily), shivered at the pool, and was told by a nail tech to lay off the manicures for awhile (my nails are thin and brittle).

I’m actually kind of glad the nail tech said something - I’m really liking the way my fingers look all bougie and shit from manicures, and those bitches are expensive.

I also went to the crazy presidential palace hotel for a $25 cappuccino made with camel milk.

Been mostly eating in the lounge at the hotel and have been liking it.

Keto has been middling.

Wine has been consumed.

I’m mostly out of shit to do that doesn’t involve things I don’t want to do alone (like kayak the mangrove forest or head out of town 1.5 hours to a cool oasis or go to a theme park), so I’m riding to an island that also hosts Ferrari World to go to a huge mall and get my steps in.

Hopefully Dubai tomorrow.

I miss pupper.

We’re home next week then off to Sri Lanka ... then done with travel for a few months. I think.

Such busy. I'm exhausted just hearing about all your travel!

Camel milk, eh? Any distinctive difference in taste? Is it less upsetting to your belly? Is that like a super rare, specialty thing, or could you actually drink camel milk on the reg? Haha so curious!

@Fonzico: didn’t hurt my stomach at all. I can get it at home some - there’s this milk the dairy in Doha (the only one in Qatar - google cows in Doha - some business guy spent bazillions Of dollars to fly a herd of cattle to Doha to address the milk shortages caused by the blockade - craziness - you can also visit the farm - Baladna).

So. Baladna sells this milk sometimes that looks to be a blend of sheep, camel and either goat or cow - I’m curious, because my coconut milk is not cheap (45QR or something like $12 per janky-ass looking carton).
@Raxie: Definitely on the list for next trip! Along with some place called Al Ain that’s 90 minutes from the city - it has a huge oaisis, farming, and historical stuffs. I’m super curious to see a legit oaisis!

The mangroves sounds cool - just couldn’t find any actual information about kayaks or if you had to kayak ... just vague info on the website. Next time, I’m bringing my big floppy hat!

Yesterday

Made it to Dubai - went to the top of the Burj Khalifa (tallest building in the world) - got talked into the baller package, and I’m glad we did - the prole floor sounded like a damn war zone.

And since we were paying through the nose for an experience that included lots of snacks, I had a date paste cookie and a stuffed date. They’re amazeballs, but I’m glad I don’t eat shit like that on the reg. So. Sweet!

And juice. Had some sort of green lemony juice.

Also made poor lunch choices because it didn’t occur to me that ribs would come slathered in bbq sauce.

Because I’m a dumbass.

Saw my cousin, visited the crazy big mall in Dubai (it’s fairly amazing), let DH talk me into actually buying a new purse instead of continuing to talk about it for a year or two, still feel guilty about the price tag and annoyed that things cost 20-30% more in the Middle East than the States, am trying to get over myself because it has a Freaking Dachshund charm on it and I love the company’s customer service policies.

Ooh. Super almost forgot.

These are from a Mad Max/apocalypse themed roadside food truck/outdoor movie screen theme park? Rest stop? Potties & food but no gas between Dubai & Abu Dhabi.

Today is a travel day - heading home to snuggle pupper by bedtime & hoping to be fresh enough in the morning to take her to her first structured social dog walk at 10 am
