Getting  caught up here again.   Phew.  I so bad at this.

Love that pull up bar.  I am going to have to stay on my game here.  You boys get those upper body gainz so easy!  Good thing I come from stout German stock!! 

Is das nacht un .. something something? (Sorry, only know German from Animaniacs lol.)

 

Your attic space looks so bright and cheerful!  I love it.

And started watching Locke and Key on NF after that, with a pretty interesting first episode.

Week 4 / Day 3 (Wed Jan 27th):

  • Consecutive pullups: 3
  • Weekly Lifting sessions (3): 0
  • Weekly Running sessions (2): 1
  • Weekly Training Pullups: 15

Morning weight: 78.6

  • Dryjan days streak: 27
  • No Cookies/Candy days: 2
  • No Inbetween days: 3
  • No Binge Days: 2

Okay, so tuesday i cleaned out the pan with pasta, cause it is so YUMMY, there wasn't much left, but it was on top of the large plate i already had. So no bueno! I was at home working and i did do some more pullup training, though i don't know exactly  how much. I also did a run which i already posted but gonna post here again for reference.

 

Spoiler

Stayed up playing ESO too long, but i was having so much fun with my new character on NA.

 

Yesterday i had a very odd morning. Woke up with a completely clogged nose, and just knew this wasn't the way i wanted to go to work. Cause not wanting to risk infecting the co-workers with something. I just stayed in bed till i woke up which was past 10 and surprise. A completely clog-free nose! And felt very good actually, so i just went to work after that. It did throw me off a bit as i spent the rest of the morning wondering what day it was...

 

Got some really odd news about an ex-colleague which freaked me out a little.

Spoiler

Apparently he was caught in a love triangle, which made him shoot the other guy in the face (in through the cheek, out through the back of the neck, like WTF!!!). I worked with him for several years and he was always a super nice and caring person. But i guess this love-troubles he was having just "broke" him. 

 

In the evening my son was really looking forward to watching the final episode of S1 of Legend of Korra, so we did that together. And after that i watched some GUNDAM till the wife joined me and we watched some more Locke & Key which is turning into a pretty good show.

 

Oow yeah i also yelled at some random people on facebook that were being dumbfucks about covid! Which i enjoyed too!

 

So good day!

It's mainly the huge light in the middle, cause we sadly only have 2 small windows at the sides. But we cleaned it up last year and turned it into a big kids playground, with a little corner for my home-office. We might still one day convert it into a huge master bedroom. But we have to think up something to do with the solarpanels cause we want a big ass window on the east.

Translating any song makes it funny. Translating all english songs to dutch has the same effect. So it goes both ways, or all the ways for any language. It's just, you probably only mostly know english songs

How you been?

Pretty good! Took a job I love but spend too much time on it.  My step son is a senior in high school this year so lots of things to do even with Corona around.  Hubby and I both have jobs that had us working normally ( and sometimes even more) with all this crap going around.  Just sucks because you also can’t just get away and go have some fun.  Lots of jig saw puzzles have been put together, lots of cooking comfort food ( why I am back here trying to reel it in) and even an axe throwing outing.  
 

i am glad to be back.  I have really missed you guys!

But i can totally dedicate a saturday night evening of gaming when the session gets cancelled, have to see how that fits your schedule!

Ooow maybe we can ask @shaar too!

Do we know any more ESO people on here, i mean like the hardcore ESO people, not the ones hiding behind their (country's) firewall.

^ I chose that GIF, didn’t write anything, and fell asleep with my phone in my hand... now I’ve awoken from my sudden nap I’m not sure what I was going for, but it seems like it belongs here, so I’m keeping it. (Maybe a response to Willes and Wolf in the same thread again, maybe meant to be a “grabbie grabbie” about the app... who knows?!)

 

 

Thanks for the app suggestion! I’ve downloaded it and logged yesterday’s session: immediately 11 PBS 😂
