Nothing Fancy: Tanktimus shows up


Recommended Posts

Been mostly using reacts to let people know I'm following their threads. Don't want to not post a challenge, but don't want to do too much either. I think I'll give myself a break from posting about my day during zero week.

 

Things that will be helpful:
Eat more meals I made myself

Eat more fruits and vegetables

Move a bit several times a week.

The Great Reading Thread of 2024

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

I fully support taking the time you need (obviously as someone who comes and goes way more than I'd like).

The week was long. I'm down in my back, Ih ad to spend a lot of time in a hot epsom salt bath yesterday. It's healing.

Happy Challenge!

Thank you.

 

Today is good so far. I'm sore, but I've been working without any NSAIDs and Its tolerable. My hope tonight is to get to the gym after Little Bit is in bed and stretch a bit before hitting the sauna and the steam room to sweat stuff out. Last night dinner was ground pork, stir fry veggies, rice, sliced bell peppers, and Korean Teriyaki sauce. It was very good.

Dinner was sausage, mashed potatoes, and broccoli. I did in fact get to the gym (streteched at home) and spent time in the sauna and steam room. It helped.
