Going on a run πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

I haven’t been able to run well for years! I wasn’t the best at it to begin with… But all those hip surgeries and issues made me a more avid walker than runner.

I’ve tried several times in the past to “pick it up”. I researched the best way of doing it. I started and then… Either injured myself or lost interest when the results would not come fast enough.

I knew enough about running to help my oldest friend to start running and she even ran her first marathon now! Of course it wasn’t all my tips, but she always said they helped her to get into it and to keep going with it. And I have no illusions of ever running a marathon! But…

Journal – Week 39, September/October 2022 β˜”

13 more weeks, or maybe 14, and then 2022 already comes to an end. When there are no lockdowns, when vacation can happen, when you can meet with friends and do fun things… It really helps to make it feel like time can truly fly by… And while I may feel a bit blah, season changing to colder and wetter always does this to me, I’ll try to make the best of it. 😊

Weather forecast for this week. Temperatures in Celcius.

IBS – A real πŸ’© sh*t situation

This isn’t the first time I mentioned IBS, and I’m guessing it also won’t be my last time writing about it. My previous post Fibro – A life-long challenge mentions it shortly. I call it a “light” version. This is how my specialist called it after I explained the symptoms and how often they occur. He didn’t say it meant my pain or difficulty would be less. He said I sounded a wee bit in control of it, which could make it a bit better to handle. And I think he’s been right, as my amount of bad accidents, fortunately, is low.

But when the IBS hits me, I get struck hard and I struggle a lot. It usually takes 8-12 hours before my bowels are so done that I slowly regain some control again. I need tonz of energy to cope and on bad days, all I want to do is snuggle, be warm and comfortable and snooze until the pain eases of a bit.

Painful weather πŸ‚

My pain levels are bound to the weather, in a way. Is it below the 16Β°C, my muscles will hurt more. Is it below 10Β°C, my tendons will join in. And while my painkillers do help, I don’t want to take too many. I’m already dependent on them to get through the day. I try to take less when the weather is making me more comfortable. But when cold weather, wet weather, is arriving, I need mor meds to get through the day.

And I hate that. I hate the daily pain, I hate the discomfort it brings me, I hate the limited amount of energy I have during these days. Because for me, more pain means I need more energy to deal with that. And leaving me with less energy to get through the day.

October 2022

I used to share a post on the first of every month where I shared my progress with my weightloss.

Every since I stopped losing weight and started gaining some, I wasn’t motivated anymore to share. It made me feel like a failure. I never got to my goal. And gaining weight made me feel like I wasn’t strong enough to reach my goals… Or, my one goal.

I wanted to feel better and look good. And while part of me felt a bit better, still the reflection of my body in the mirror made me anything but happy…

Learning happiness

I always thought I needed loads of things and love to be happy! Cool gadgets, the latest games, sunny and glorious vacations, a loving dog (or two) Iand someone at my side to love.

Man, how I have been taught otherwise in the last 4,5 years…

I won’t deny that those things add to my happiness, I still enjoy all of that. But it stopped defining all of happiness for me.

Thursday Depression Quote

Depression Quote

β€œRain makes me feel less alone. All rain is, is a cloud- falling apart, and pouring its shattered pieces down on top of you. It makes me feel good to know I’m not the only thing that falls apart . It makes me feel better to know other things in nature can shatter.”― Lone Alaskan Gypsy

Quote found online, picture and editing by myself and Snapseed.

Almost October folks!

September came and almost went as well. Time seems to fly by these days. Good days with friends, Gaming, hitting the gym. And, of course, no lockdowns! We are able to go on vacation, which we did and I loved! We can visit sporting activities, we can shop if we have any money πŸ˜‰. I do believe that the lockdowns we had in 2020/2021 have showed me not to take my freedoms for granted. As it also showed me how easily they can be taken away!

I understand the greater good and I wasn’t against it… But it is limiting your life and has a greater impact on your health than they want you to believe. No sports can knock the wind 🌬️ out of your sails, as it supports both your physical as your mental health. But this year had been rather kind on us. We had some restrictions early on but when they were lifted, they stayed away. 😊

Journal – Week 38, September 2022

The last full week of September has begun. Can’t believe by the end of next week, we’ll this week when I share this, it’s October already! When there’s no lockdowns the days can go rather quickly. Plus the vacation seemed to fly by as well. Another week in September, hopefully I will get my yearly end bill on my gas and electric, I would like to receive some money back (which will probably take another few weeks… Ugh!). My hair will get cut, hopefully, I have a PT session (I need it) and that’s most of my appointments. Ow of course going to Germany with mum. And hitting the gym every day. And I’ll need to fill out the questionnaire for the hospital. They been bugging me for weeks now πŸ˜‚ but the appointment isn’t till next week, and I don’t fill out things 5 weeks in advance. It’s not like they will actually do anything with my answers. They haven’t in the past…

Not too cold, not too wet… Also not very sunny, autumn πŸƒ has arrived I guess…

Gaming and πŸ† trophies

I’ve written about trophies a while ago. To learn more about them, please check out the following link: Gaming – Trophies. TLDR: trophies are a reward system by Playstation, staring during the PS3 times, where you get rewarded for doing certain things in game. Some games are very, very hard and only achievable by the best (or luckiest) gamers. Some games are easy and more made to just relax while playing. Those are, most often n, my kind of games.
