    It was really good seeing you yesterday Yeti I really hope that sunburn isn’t too bad! Hopefully when I am back up your way that the weather is more appropriately Scottish!

    Let me tell you: you're going to die. I know, because we reached 42 yesterday and I'm dead. Why does this sound soooo lovely and nice when anybody talks about it, and when I go shopping it is a mixture of stress, boredom and frustration?

    Day 23!
  8. Cool!! Yeah, that's tough. I guess the only advice is "give it time"? Which is not very helpful, I know. That's great. When you're in a lot of trouble, the best thing is to avoid the need to make decisions and go straight ahead to do something. I hope that you're having fun with it! Thanks for the explanation about the mat, I didn't know yoga mats needed any of that. Is that a thing? I'll take a look, thanks.

    [Waanie] An hour a day keeps grumpiness at bay

    Thanks! I agree that it is okay to have "nothing" days from time to time, as long as they don't occur too often, or are planned. I should have them more often, and listen better to that inner voice . And yeah, living next to the border is pretty neat. Some things (mainly booze and clothes) are much cheaper in Germany, so sometimes I go there for shopping. That's more like a 20 minute drive, it was this forest that was a bit farther away. In The Netherlands that is not so bad, especially in the part where I live (we're culturally ~10 years behind the west), but this might be the case in Germany. Germany is more extreme in their exercise culture anyway, where people either make it a big deal or don't do anything at all. Where I live, most people exercise moderately, from bike-commuting/walking to going to the gym a few times per week. There's people who exercise more or less, but most people fall in this category. I mean, at my first year at university we were going to camp by bike, which was 30km. Nobody had a problem with that. This weekend I visited my parents (and therefore did not update a lot). I went bouldering in a climbing centre close to them, which is much more modern compared to where I normally climb. It is easy to get to talk to people when alone, but I don't think I'd return there if I was not very close by already. It's lacking a bit of atmosphere somehow, not really the holiday feeling I was going for. It was still nice though. Temperatures will be tropical in The Netherlands during the next few days (38C is predicted tomorrow), and we don't have AC. Not sure if I will exercise at all, I forgive myself if I won't achieve my goals . This week, I went shopping on Monday (bought a cute dress, a new handbag and a few T-shirts), and a slow walk yesterday evening. The route that usually takes me 70 minutes, now took me 90 minutes in 30C+ weather (this might also be due to many gym-fights in PoGo though). I'm sweating like crazy, so we'll see what happens. Maybe it is also time to start thinking about goals for next challenge...

Tuesday walked the mall a bit before coming home to eat lunch before I damn died. Monday also featured a visit from maintenance re: our yearly mold drama. I don’t want to have it this year; was hoping everything we’ve done that’s water related in the apartment this year would fix it - it has not. It was 93% humidity in my living room Tuesday morning. And the dehumidifier we bought for the bedroom just isn’t cutting it. They’ve brought us a second one, and that’s knocked the humidity down to 70-80% in the living room, and back up to not ideal for some reason in the bedroom - which is still going to mold. This pic was taken while on a walk last night - we got 2 blocks, and my phone was literally wet when I pulled it out of my dog training treats bag. Like so wet it wouldn’t recognize my fingerprints. Supposedly, The maintenance manager is coming today to let me know what the plan for sealing the windows at least will be - and it may involve moving for awhile or permanently, depending upon what they can do. Which could work well for the dogs, or could be the worst thing ever. Locked their asses in the bedroom yesterday with the sheets stripped off the bed - one of them managed to pee on the 1 side of the mattress cover that is t covered by the waterproof sheet, Odin chomped into the side of the holiday decorations bag like a freaking shark, they raided the donations bag and strewed shoes and dog outfits all over, someone found the bag of tiny jingle bells is intended on teaching Freya to door signal with - and I came home to a musical bedroom party, aaaaaand there was a poo on one potty pad with a pee dead center on the other. At least they got 2 things right? Thankfreakinggoodness they didn’t find the glitter stash. I mean ... I’d be living my best life, but DH would be less than thrilled to explain what kind of night he had at work the next day. [emoji38] Moar Fulfillment - [x, x] Daily: Read finance article - [x, x] Daily: Dog training - [ ] Weekly: Apply for or bid on 1 job - [ ] Challenge: Start a class on Skillshare - [ ] Challenge: Pick budgeting app; fill in that and spreadsheet We got the more sensitive vibration collars and tried them out. Can’t remember if I told you guys about that - they aren’t working for us. Odin thinks the ground buzzed him, spins in circles, and works himself into a dead panic - Freya just hunkers down and shakes while all that insanity is going on, waiting for hers to go off. Our poor little man is kinda smart, but cause and effect 100% pass him by. Freya gets it; he’s just such an oblivious guy anyways that he does not - and it’s too distressing for all of us to see if he will get it moving forward. For now, we are trying ways to make the back bedroom work for all of us - tried the back bathroom 3x on Monday - mopped bodily fluids up 3x, the dogs had a bath, and washed ground-in poo out of my grout. Not a good time. In other news, I think the fan we bought for the bedroom has made it more comfortable for DH with the A/C off at night. I know having it off is much better for me, and with the fan hitting his side, I wake up chilly in the middle of the night - hopefully that means he isn’t over there sweaty. He hasn’t complained about it since getting back from Germany, at least. I think he remembered what life is like with no A/C - and that most of the world lives just fine without it.

    Pack. Move. Unpack: Tanktimus Relocates Forum Headquarters

    Thanks for elaborating on the topic, very very interesting. I'd read that C-section rates are so much higher in the states partly because of either money or the doctors on shift simply wanting to get it over with and go home. I'd dismissed both as fear mongering- but now I'm not so sure. That probably has something to do with that higher C-section rate also then. Did they also explain when it is necessary?

  17. Tuesday Update Oh my gosh this heat. Given who was so undemocratically elected as a our new prime minister yesterday it's not beyond all realms of possibility the literal gates of hell have opened up. Those plans to sit in the garden? Those were the plans of a fool. In practice, it was way too hot to be in the garden so I spent the day in my house with all my blinds closed just in my pants. The only room in my house that doesn't have blinds is the rear conservatory and I am pretty sure my neighbours can't see in and if they can well it's their own stupid fault - they shouldn't be looking. They deserve all the eyefuls of pastey titties they get. I kept starting to do stuff then having to stop because I am pathetic when I am hot. I did half arsedly clean the bathroom, then I lay down on the bed in front of the fan for a hour to recover. I watched an episode of Killing Eve and Fleabag, then I napped whilst listening to Megadeth (surprisingly good to nap to). TH got home a little later than usual since he was coming back from Oop North but he was being driven back by a colleague and dropped somewhere where he planned to walk back. I wasn't having that, it was too hot for bras, it was definitely too hot to walk so I got in the car and picked him up. I bought him home, then took him out for a world food buffet since he's got an interview for yet another job. He's so in demand. I have almost finished writing out my next challenge but I think I am going to jump right in and start it now because I feel terrible after all that buffet food. Bleurgh.

    Monday was a really nice evening - we headed straight over after work to see the Welshman's family, and I even took a sensible amount of the barbecue instead of ALL of it. Unfortunately my intention to not drink got scuppered when I was handed a glass of wine that kept getting magically refilled... Yesterday I had an appalling day at work. Everything I picked up to code was complicated, and I was left stressed and exhausted at the end of it. Ended up skipping the gym and going to the pub to sit in the sun instead. Not the best choice, but it really did help. Tonight the family are staying over at ours so no exercise is being done, but tomorrow has been freed up so I'm going to stick in a heavy leg day to make up for it.

    Air Fryer?

    Oh thanks all for sharing this! I had a coworker who was willing to sell me hers for $30, but was questioning on space if it wasn't any different than an oven. Knowing it changes things up has me thinking good things.

    The next step

    I'll just pretend this didn't happen... Bottling up emotions isn't maybe the healthiest thing to do, but I'm good at it so that's what I'm gonna do now. Just push this crap aside and deal with it later. For now, I have plans ahead - today me and wife go to Rammstein concert, and at weekend we take kids and head off to vacations at the seaside. It's no place for dark thoughts and worries. Anyways, report on yesterday: W4 D2 - Keep the engine running Workout (running) ✔ - We're losing pressure 2506 kcal, 127.5 g protein 7 day average weight: 74.07kg Daily weight - 74.3kg - Beware the material fatigue No problem waking up at alarm. No screen in the evening, went to bed before just after 9:30pm. I was mentally too tired to do anything. Just went to sleep. - This thing needs to move Kept myself busy till supper, after that crashed on the couch for an hour (overthinking and agonizing over this crap in my head) and went to bed. Not the nicest evening ever.
