House looks great, and I love the glitter lamp.

 

Yesterday, I threw out a couple things in my closet and a bit of old kitchen stuff. (I'm on the "decluttering lite" plan)

3am Monday night...

 

couldnt sleep because of the heat and just finished my paperwork project. Its already in the envelope so I can post it on Tuesday. Today I am a dog sitter for a friend ( the dog comes to my house / garden and I will just chill all day. Maybe I even get some napping in. Mood is very good but body is tired.

@Terinatum  @Xena  @iatetheyeti  thanks for commenting and keeping me on track! Your presence is very much appreciated ! :)

dog sitting day:

a shy Iberian shepherd named Sancho ist staying with us today. Lara wants to be his girl but he does not want to love her back and crawled around in the corner to avoid her ....aaaaaawwwwwwww

 

I told her that happens to humans too. :)

fearless has started the day taking her evening medication instead of her morning pills. Lets just say the midday nap was intense! ;)

 

3l drinking goal: check

short walk with 2 doggies: check

meditation: no

movement in any other form: no

3 keto meals: yes, but hating it after having a conversation with @Terinatum about fast food and.... gasp... croissants with chocolate or jam!!!

cigarettes: today its hard because I was awake all night. not on plan. no

wine: will have one glass now. If I drink more I will come back and edit. ( yesterday I did fine )

edit: 2 glasses of wine tonight.

Have a good, cool evening, guys! ❤️

He is absolutely adorable! Poor Lana, though maybe it's for the best, having a furry cuddle buddy on such a hot day doesn't tend to work out well!

 

...I want croissants with chocolate now.

Things are going well, that's awesome.

Sorry for the food breakdown!

I'm losing the Dr Pepper craving so very happy about that.

And look at you being all on plan with wine and smokes!

Keep truckin' my dear. You got this.

Thursday:

 

Its still very hot but I managed well today. Looking at @Jarric s thread a lot and missing the old Crossfit days. What if I could build myself up so well that I could return to Crossfit ???

Right now Im not only weak, that's not a problem, but my knee  and back are wonky after the surgeries and I have problems with tight tendons in my shoulders.. I have an idea about what I would have to do: stretching , PT, foam rolling, building muscle to support wonky bits... it would be a shitload of work to get there!

On the other hand: there's lots of old people doing Crossfit ( im 53) and I have  a brilliant box right in my town where the owner knows a lot about scaling down exercises to adapt to my body.

I wouldn't even have to pay as I had the deal to clean the club for a free membership. SOOOOOOOO??????

 

As soon as the heatwave is over I will start my stretching and bodyweight/PT routine and then I will see if I have the discipline to pull that off....

 

Today:

shower: check

meditation: no

walking: no

food: yes

hydration: yes

wine : yes

cigarettes: yes

writing: done

adulting around the flat: yes

 

mood

sigh......

just called my old crossfit coach and he said  that he will take me back into his class happily. He said he also had a slipped disc and can scale down the workouts for me. Im going back in 2021 when Im officially cleared to train after surgery. The trainer is very careful and sees everything I do wrong. So Im not very concerned about the injury risk. As for the money, he offered me again that I can clean the place and in return train cost free! :)

 

 

Its on guys! I have to do my part now so I can really go back next year. Am all exited and very very happy!

Just 90's stuff. No relation to people 😉

 

Fearless...I'm so excited for you about Crossfit. Love that you had an idea and took some action. Awesome!

That's great news, excited to hear you'll be getting back to it! Also good to have a goal to work towards for your PT/rehab.

 

On another note, I had a thought on the smoking. What I used to do when I was cutting down was have a cigarette case, and fill it with the number of cigarettes I had allowed for the day (I was smoking rollies at the time, so I'd make a batch whilst sat in front of the TV). That way you never have to worry about keeping count, and you've got a clear visual representation of how many you've had and how many you have left.
