Deffy Stays High - Deftona's Fantasy Summer (Hot Girl Summer Part 2) - Deffy #70


Recommended Posts

Deffy Stays High:

Deftona's Fantasy Summer

 

 

 

I love summer. I love all seasons, but summer especially. Like literally every person in this world I haven't had a proper summer for a couple of years, and I won't get one this year. So I am going to retreat into what I call my inner life (I actually live a lot of my life in my inner life) and have an imaginary, fantasy summer.

And when you think about it, a lot of bonus summer things are happening. It's now very warm and an international football competition starts tomorrow and it doesn't get much more summer than that. Except holidays. I probably won't have a holiday this year. I'm holding out a glimmer of hope that maybe I can have one later in the year but it definitely won't be to Cambodia which is where we'd hoped to go this year after our plans for last year were rudely interrupted by something. I can't remember what. 

 

But nothing can stop me from having an imaginary holiday, and I have been wanting a pool or a hot tub for the garden for a while and I finally convinced TH that it's a good idea, mostly by saying "how awesome would it be if we could bring the spare TV outside and watch the Euros in the pool with beers?" and ladies and gentlemen, that done convinced him. So I hope to research it over the next couple of days and get one. A hot tub would definitely help my sore back too, wouldn't it. 

 

So goals! 

 

I still want to lose those 25 lbs because there are loads of awesome clothes I have locked in my attic until I can look good in them again and I want to get them back down. I haven't made a great deal of progress on that 25 lbs but I am more focused now than I have been, particularly as I have a glimmer of hope to return to activity and work. I don't know the timeframe of all this but I hope it's soon.  To lose weight I will:

 

Eat to calorie goal

Do What's Best for the back. It will be rehab. It might be walking. It might be core exercises. There is no way to know today what will be best for me in 6 weeks so it really is a tentative experimental thing.

Eat 5 portions of freggies every day

 

I also want to focus on my appearance. Grandstanding on the beach like I'm on a gap yah, dahling. 

 

Skin care! 

Drink 8 glasses of water

Work on my tan

Light booty training for Sisco.

And I am also going to:

Stay High

I do love me some drugs, and where better to get them from than my own endocrine system. Because then I know that shit hasn't been cut with icing sugar or some bullshit. So I want to get one activity from each section per day so I am a walking natural pharmacy for myself to feast on. I'm going to stay high. All the time.

 

 

The goals in bold nonitalics (it's a word) are the goals that will make up the 7 that determine how much of the £100 I can spend on myself or needs to go on the mortgage. 

 

Bonus goals include: reading as I am excitingly close to my yearly Goodreads goal, finish Valhalla and find a new game to live in as part of my fantasy summer, and maybe something else if I can think of it. I have an idea for weekly overarching themes but I haven't decided yet if I want to go with it or not. 

 

All of this will be bundled up with a soundtrack of excellent summer choons for your listening pleasure. The kind of tunes they play by the adults only infinity pool on European holidays.

Hot tubs are awesome! They can be especially helpful therapeutically with soreness and pain.

 

Your talk of imaginary summer reminds me of something I read in a compilation of letters C.S. Lewis wrote to fans, which I am most likely paraphrasing since I read it several years ago: "In Britain we only get summer about every seven years."

 

I hope one year you get to come have a Texas summer, complete with hangouts, grilling, BBQ, breakfast Tacos, and Texas Craft Beer (we would absolutely take a day trip to Shiner, TX).

Ack there might be bad news on the hot tub. Because the one we want weighs 70 kgs and I have no idea how we would assemble that given I can't lift anything or bend down :(

That is very sad news.  Is there a place you can purchase and include a fee for assembly?  I think in this case it's certainly worth it.

There's a thing over here called "Beer equity" where buddies will work for beer on their friend's projects.

There's also "sweat equity" where the sweat a buddy puts in on your project can come due on one of theirs.

Protip: You can supervise and are in charge of the amount of beer and that should be chosen wisely. My Aunt wouldn't have been living with straightly cut and neatly placed tiles at the front door, and crooked cuts and gaps by the time you got to her kitchen had she known better. You could have made a plot of BAL against average gap width or degrees of deviation from perpendicularity in that hallway.

I think if we were getting a proper hot tub installed, (and the plan is to do that eventually) then definitely but we need to do too much work done in the garden to prep a space for it. So we were going to just get one of those inflatable ones for now and I doubt anywhere would help us with that.

Good point, but I want it done today (or preferably yesterday as we have this week off as AL) and there's noone I could ask this short notice.

Sunday Update

 

Summer Song of the Day

 

 

It was a really hot day again yesterday so we dealt with my stinky bush before it got too hot and there was too much people traffic. We live on a main road but we are raised off the road by around 6 feet and have tall bushes at the front edge of the property but we noticed the other day it's all browning across the front and it's losing leaves. It also smells like something has died. I'm pretty sure there's a whitefly infestation so we sprayed it with a natural bug killer - washing up liquid and lemon juice and I am hoping that saves it because I really don't want to lose the bush. In a couple of days I am going to buy a ladybird house and some ladybird larvae, set up the house right next to the bush, FACING IT, and sprinkle the larvae inside the bush and hope they go to town on it. 

 

We went to my parents house after where my mom was upset about her dealings with the government so TH is on the case now. I have never known him lose a case against a company so I have faith things will be put right and she can relax a bit. We got home and put on the England game and opened the bar and we won which is always nice. 

 

I spent the afternoon doing adult things like shopping for a new gas and electricity fix because ours is coming up to renewal. Rock n roll, eh? In the evening we ordered Chinese food. 

 

I have been gaining weight over the last two weeks even though I have been very careful with my calories and I didn't quite understand it until I researched it properly and two of my four meds are linked to weight gain - one in particular. I have also felt incredibly bloated for a few weeks and just really uncomfortable and it's not linked to food or drink intake so I am going to restart the fasting and drop my calories to try and counter this and hope it makes a difference. If not I am just have to accept it but I'm not happy about it. 

 

Goals nailed yesterday - 2/7 but I was marking myself under the old rules.

You've had terrible luck with this over the years.  I recall a previous med from a few years back also causing similar problems.  I would say you are properly due for a big old spot of good luck right about now.

It's definitely better than it was but I'm not right yet. The official diagnoses from the MRI is  a benign tumour on my thoracic spine, a bulging disc on my cervical spine, and arthritis and two prolapsed discs, one above the other, on my lumbar spine. One of the prolapsed discs is pretty bad and pressing on my nerves and there is inflammation on the nerves too. I've been told to continue to rest and I have some very gentle rehab exercises to do. If it doesn't improve on it's own then I'll need surgery but I am very much hoping I don't get to that.

Yes, and I hadn't finished losing the additional weight from that before I started gaining weight from the first prolapsed disc 😂 None of my clothes fit me now though so it's do or die.

In all seriousness, knowing what a big fan of baths you are I'm surprised it's taken you this long to decide to get one.

I know, it's right up my street innit. The main reservation I have is that you have to leave them on all the time, even if they're not in use, because if you don't it takes too long to get up to temperature and they're not the quietest things in the world. That's the only thing that has been holding me back.

That's a lot of things..  I have seen a lot of herniated discs improve dramatically or just go away completely with gentle rehab exercise, never seen 3 at a time but it's still a hopeful precedent? Any idea how it got that bad? just really bad luck?
