Darkfoxx 54: Continuing On

Recommended Posts

 

This cycle, I’m going to roll over what I did last cycle:

 

Soflete trainings (modified) 2-3 times a week

 

Pupper walks while the weather cooperates

 

Food collage pictures for tracking & reporting - adding in “after” shots, so I may have multiple collages in 1 day

 

Also posting weight reports on Mondays

 

I’m not near a scale or measurement tools for the beginning of this cycle, so I’ll do a 3-month report next go ‘round.

 

Things happening or I want to get accomplished this month:

 

Maybe prepping for a new addition to the pack

Travel

Revisit social media revamp

Revisit looking for remote work

Learn some shit about investing

Hamad card

International Drivers license

Sunday

Ok - so on with the more reporty pics tomorrow

Breakfast

2 eggs, veal bacon, chicken sausage, 2 hash brown patties, tomato, mini croissant & 2 slices wheat toast with fig & orange jams + coffee

Worked out - bench presses

Skipped lunch, walked a huge mall, picked up a sun hat & flips for the pool - couldn’t find a cover-up, so I’ll be hiding my burned chest from the sun

DH picked me up there and we walked a bit more and grabbed a bigass burger with sweet potato fries for dinner

Came back, almost napped, contacted the dog guy, finished Nightflyers & had more of those devil pretzels that I didn’t need

Monday

Ate a good but cobbled tigether breakfast of things I grabbed at the grocery yesterday: this weird but good protein flatbread, toum (garlic sauce) and (beef) pepperoni with rice milk in my coffee.

Cardio day in the gym, and I was excited they have battle ropes. They’re little battle ropes, so I got them to move!

Skipped an outing for the day and lazed about in the hotel room until housekeeping showed up - went and had a coffee and read for an hour or so until DH came back.

Lunch was another of those wraps + a fruit cup

Had intended on hitting the pool in the afternoon, but a sandstorm rolled in that was bad enough to give me dirty boogers with 5 minutes exposure.

That’s the Grand Mosque in the background - it’s at the foot of the property, but you can barely see it for the dust.

Had fancy Indian for dinner - mutton curry, mixed breads & a weak gin cocktail

And Pupper is happening - Odin Kratos will be arriving (or I’ll be picking him up) sometime in May.

International Drivers License was pretty simple to get iirc (unlike most things there) - I think there was a place on C Ring or D Ring?

It’s on C-Ring; it’s just dragging my ass out of the house when they’re actually open that’s been an issue.

I’m still not used to this ‘closed in the middle of the day’ business. Seems like absolutely everything I ever want to do that’s post breakfast is between 1 & 2 pm.

I think that would be a difficult adjustment.  Happy challenge!

We shall see, but I may not make it - this is the level of existing cuteness in my house:

Why are like 99% of my pictures of that damn dog when she’s laying down?

Must work on picture sitting!

@Cheetah: drives me buggy, and May is only going to get worse with Ramadan, then rolling right into even more wonky Summer hours.
@Fonzico: I knoooooooooooooooooow!

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but hurry up May!

Tuesday

Breakfast was 1 more salami & toum wrap + 1 just toum wrap

Worked out - started feeling nauseous with a headache and difficulty taking a full breath right at cool-down.

Came back, laid flat & napped a couple hours to kill it.

Ate 2 batches of snacks

Did not make it to the Louvre or out of the hotel room.

DH came back and was still exhausted.

Ordered room service club sandwich & binged Russian Doll on Netflix.

Hey, I worked out though. Whoo.

You're either pregnant or dehydrated.

hoping for the latter!

Which suuuuuuuuuuuper fits - because I am absolute garbage at getting enough water; especially pre and during a workout when I’m balancing my liquids so as to not cause slosh-related nausea.

Today

DH has the day off, so we drove to Dubai - and only made it to the big mall.

But hey, it’s got a pretty great aquarium, so that’s something Cultural-ish...

And lots of walking.

He thinks we saw 70% of it, I dunno if it was that much.

Breakfast was a bar & coffee

Lunch was Mi Goreng at a fast casual spot

Had some rice cake chip things as a road snack

May or may not order room service when Mr. Horrible Mood gets done with the surprise emails he has to return this evening and decides to re-look at the room service menu while not in freakout mode.

If not, we still have some damn junk food in the room.

Goal for next week: think like a dietician; eat like that damn motivational quote I can never remember who said: something along the lines of - mostly veggies, moderation

Also: snuggle my pup because I miss her face

Pics posted later after whatever garbagio ends up in my face sorts itself out

That's the way I've heard it.

context would have been good, eh?

I needed a filler image - went to the Dubai Aquarium that day and ogled the jellies for a bit

No eating was involved, though I did tell the yummy fishes they were all delicious.
