ElvenEngineer Talks a Lot

Recommended Posts

You could learn a lot today in your training? Maybe? You hope? I hope it goes well! 

Work will be work but from what I can tell you will keep kicking it's ass and taking names.

I woke up feeling WAY better this morning - better enough that I was scared to jinx it by lifting. So I stayed in bed an extra half hour or so, got to work before the training to do some things, got through training - yay for being able to contribute despite being a newbie! 

 

Currently debating between cleaning and going do deadlifts now, either choice will be fine. If I don't DL tonight I'm going to try again tomorrow morning. 

 

Will update if I go work out, if not have a great night everyone! 

(also I cooked another Home Chef salmon thing - delicious)

No cardio today, apparently I'm still sick. Boo. Fevers are stupid.

 

I also visited the dentist who told me I have more cavities - no fun

 

Tomorrow is bench day!

Did you know... if you don't go and see the stupid dentist then he can't give you bad news?

How is the stupid fever?

Since I only run fevers at night (I'm weird), it's fine now. Last night was the lowest it's been this week, so sleeping seems to be helping.

My temperature hasn't gone above 100 F yet, so I'm not too concerned, just trying to rest and take it easy.

It definitely affected my bench numbers though - 75# felt so hard that I didn't even attempt 85#, which I've been able to double pretty consistently.

 

Skipped the workout this morning, because I have someone visiting and they got in WAY later than intended - Newark airport stopped letting planes land due to weather for a while, so instead of landing at 7pm, she landed at 10pm last night. Then the 30 minute drive to me. I'm not a fan of getting less than 8 hours, unless it's my own fault (reading new books), so I skipped the morning workout and woke up at 7am. May try to hit the gym tonight, might not. Will be fine either way!

No fitness things today either - we are ending the challenge with a tenperature of 101.6°F which is... Suboptimal.

Like, literally nothing else is wrong with me, I just have a fever and no appetite :(

Well, my throat kind of hurts I guess.

 

this may be payment for pushing too hard last week and standing in 18°F weather to watch the parade yesterday lol

 

Because I was doing well until my notebook with all my star stickers got stolen, and ive successfully postrd every day this last week, I am calling this challenge a win! The next challenge might literally just be posting daily since 1) I like talking to you guys and 2) with a move coming up at the end of March I dont want to commit to much more :D

Stress is also not good for your health so all that Canadian drama probably contributed to the future fever. Hopefully after the movie things start to settle down for you. 

 

See you on the flip side! (Aka the next challenge.)

Pretty much all of my stickers were in the backpack which got stolen, so I've had my eye out! You guys will definitely be the first to know when I get new stickers :)
