lucky fire dragon Posted February 21, 2020 Author Report Share Posted February 21, 2020 It just felt pathetic to me as it was the second day without movement, I could have easily taken some time for it, but just didn't bring myself to it. Neither moved nor rested properly, but yeah, you're right it was just one of those days and it's okay to have them. Thanks for the reminder 🤗 Yesterday was better, yay! Week 1 Day 5 DO SOMETHING 3/6 went for a 75min walk with hubby along the fields - so good! EAT NOTHING 26h I am a bit impatient with my weight loss at the moment because it isn't as rapid as it was in January and beginning of February. Granted, in those weeks I usually had on 36 hour fast per week and the past two weeks I didn't, also I allowed myself some sweets and the occasional glass of wine which I hardly ever had in January and that too might make a difference. On the other hand, I might have just reached a point where weight loss slows down naturally and it is still happening and my body continues to slim, so that I get to see inklings of the muscles I am working on, so it is all well .... anyway in my impatience I thought, why not do another 36 hour fast again until I realized it would end this morning right before gym and that might be a bit dumb. I like working out on an empty stomach but that might be overdoing it and to eat right before the workout is no good either. So I opted for a nice supper of Bobotie and rice with the family (plus some sprouts ahead) and treated myself to a hot chocolate afterwards (impatience was somehow very quiet at that moment ) EAT AND GROW ALL THE THINGS - mostly grow harvested a few more sprouts and tended the rest. Scoby still looks sad but smells fine, so I trust all is well. Have to bake bread again - it's all eaten LIFE GOAL nothing ------------------------ Day 6 so far I am struggling a bit with getting all the work done, that I'd like to get done this week. Am slow, easily distracted, tired and taking more breaks which means less hours of productive work. Today I went to the gym and did a proper strength workout again and that felt great. That always does clear my head, so I hope I'll be more on top of my game again today. Thing is that next week I will be away on a workshop for 5 days and there is a lot to get done before still. My new job incorporates customer support for retreats and online courses and while it's easily doable if I have an hour per day for it at the moment there are several special events going on and I need more hours than usual and during the workshop days I will probably not get to much support either. Well, I could .... but the workshop is an advanced meditation work with Dr. Joe whose meditations I absolutely love and while I am part of the team there, I will mostly work during the breaks, helping at the product store and could actually sit in on the lectures and meditations a lot. I am beyond excited for that So can you imagine me sitting on a notebook instead and replying to support emails??? No way have to do be quite on top before and catch up afterwards instead. The workshop starts early each morning and from what I've heard team meeting can last well into the night, I won't get much sleep but hey who needs sleep when we meditate 😉 Now I even did the (maybe stupid) thing of signing up for joining a Shiatsu massage workshop in Munich just for one day this Sunday. Hubby looked at me with big eyes, because I wanted to use the weekend to catch up on some of that work and now I'll be gone for a full day - whooopsy - but I remember last time I went for a Shiatsu workshop it was a similar situation. I still thought "I really don't have time for this right now" and then it did me a WORLD of GOOD. Because you see, I don't only train in massaging - I get treated myself as well I started learning Shiatsu in summer last year, and I love it so much. It's an acupressure massage, so you work along the meridian lines of the body, using your own body weight to lean in or out in order to let the body kind of melt into the floor or stretch out again. It is heavenly So now I'll have to scoop in everything else a bit more to keep Sunday clear, hmmm. If you don't hear much from me, you know what's up Oh and I'll have to give hubby a long promised Shiatsu massage on Saturday of course, to appease for all my absences shame, he is also working a lot at the moment and we're both very grateful for all the work, but he is really tense from all the sitting and will enjoy a massage thoroughly. 1 Quote Level 18 Wood-Elf Assassin battle log: counting the good things current challenge: something, nothing, all the things previous challenges: 25, 24, 23, 22, 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 How cool is it that the same God who created mountains and oceans and galaxies looked at you and thought the world needed one of you, too Link to comment
