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 ๐Ÿ˜‚ 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 ๐Ÿƒ has arrived I guess…

Monday

Getting up after the second snooze, yay me! I had a decent night. But my left wrist hurts… Which is annoying, so no hand strength things. I’m taking a well earned rest day and just do easy (well easy on the hands) cardio. I have no clue what I did wrong with my hands, but with the hypermobility, it can take only one slight wrong movement to mess things up. So I started with the seated bike and then I head to the treadmill. Still practicing my incline and speeds and hopefully, one day, I’ll be confident enough to walk on it with both hands loose. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hello tomorrow and goodbye to yesterday
We’ve been waiting for this moment
And we still don’t know what to say
We may never find the answers or know the reason why
Why we both decided we should say good-bye

Nothing but good things are coming my way
If you are going please let me stay
You bring me down when I’m getting high
You turn me on I amplify
1-2-3 times you’ve broken me (broken Me)

After 28 minutes on the treadmill I was done. I had walked 2,67km and burned 216 calories, with a maximum of 6km/h at an 8% incline. Slowly improving ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ. When I got home I made breakfast, ate it, rode the bike for an hour. Then I took a shower, washed my hair and after that, it was time for walkies with Arwen. Fortunately it was dry when we walked our bit.

When we got home, I packed my things and we headed to Nijmegen. I had hoped to visit the Appie with mum before the hairdresser would come, but mum had an appointment and when she finally came home, there wasn’t enough time to go there before. So we went there after the cuts, spend my last bit of money. ๐Ÿ˜Š Then Arwen and I headed home. I rode my bike for 45 minutes. Then I made food for Arwen and myself. After that, I rode the bike for two hours. During that time I played a little of The Secrets of Monkey Island. I managed to get two trophies, but I doubt I’ll ever be able to get them all. Some sound really hard, especially with my hands. But I’ll enjoy as much as I can, as it’s a funny story and game.

Trophy list

After the ride I snuggled up on the couch with a pillow and blanket. Arwen at my feet, we watched some Castle together till it was time for bed. Even with some snacks, I did manage a calorie deficit, which was very much needed after yesterday ๐Ÿ˜‡. Here’s to achieving more (and better) deficit days as I need them to lose my obesity.

Positive: enjoying my game and having a calorie deficit (according to MyFitnesspal 650 calories).

TV: House of the Dragon, Castle & Cold Case.

Gaming: The Secrets of Monkey Island: Special Edition (PS4/PS+).

Tuesday

I got up after the first snooze. I had a decent night and felt ready for a new day. Getting dressed, walking and feeding Arwen. Putting out her snack and then, onwards to the gym. I needed my medium jacket, it was only 10ยฐC and a light, but cold, breeze. I started with 3 arm exercises and then I headed to the seated bike. I had hurt my hand on Sunday, though I don’t know how or why (the joys of hypermobility), so I didn’t want to push my luck with strength for my hand. I read some blogs, replied to a few and started writing for my blog page.

You gotta keep ’em separated

Like the latest fashion
Like a spreading disease
The kids are strappin’ on their way to the classroom
Getting weapons with the greatest of ease
The gangs stake out their own campus locale
And if they catch you slippin’ then it’s all over pal
If one guys colors and the others don’t mix
They’re gonna bash it up
Bash it up, bash it up, bash it up

Hey, man you talkin’ back to me?
Take him out
You gotta keep ’em separated

Half an hour on the treadmill, at max on incline 8% with a speed of 5,6km/h. Not as good as yesterday, but still, I did my best and that’s what really counts. When I was done at the treadmill I got ready to head home. I made some muesli and ate it. Then I got on my bike and rode for an hour. As walkies with Arwen would be later due to the PT appointment of our friend, we went to the bushes just in case Arwen needed to relief herself. I know she prefers the bigger walkies, but we’d get to that in a while. ๐Ÿพ

When she heard the message tone from our friend, she got excited and ready. So I got ready as well and we walked a bit towards the direction she’d be coming from. Arwen had a good walking mood and we went to the water side rather quickly. She wanted to ๐Ÿ’ฆ splash. It was 13ยฐC so she was still able, she just would need her bathrobe as we came back because this weather doesn’t help her dry in the meantime. Arwen was distracted by another dog so I had to leash her. I prefer her going round and doing her thing. But when there’s bananas ๐ŸŒ in her ears, I better be safe than sorry. After a while the dog went the other way and Arwen was paying attention again. After walkies I relaxed a bit, and snacked ๐Ÿ™„…

I rode my bike for an hour after that. Then my tummy started to make loads of noise and it hurt like hell! So I ran to the loo where I felt like I exploded. Damn I hate days like these with IBS. It hurts and is so uncomfortable. And I had to get ready for a short walk with Arwen and then head to my PT. I got there in time but was afraid my stomach would not behave. Fortunately, it did! After a good session I got some groceries and then I headed home. Made dinner for Arwen and myself and let Arwen out for a while. When I got back to my bike for another hour. And while I had good trainings today, for some reason, what was too much according to Polar a few weeks ago… Now became too little? Really Polar?

IMG_20220921_051718

I don’t know how Polar really calculated these things as I never can make sense of them… But I always try to get the same amount of exercise done to stay stable and Polar seems confused at times ๐Ÿ˜‚. Ah well, I’ll just keep doing my thing. https://support.polar.com/en/training-load-pro more info on this all. Maybe you can make sense of it. As the way it shows its weird…

After the bike ride I lay down on the couch with a pillow and blanket. I was a little cold and tired. And I fell asleep for about 45 minutes, so I guess I needed a rest. Then it was almost time to get out and ready for bed. So I started our bed time routine. It didn’t take me too long to fall asleep. It’s been a busy day. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Positive: being active despite snacking and feeling tired.

Hump day / Wednesday

Happy Hump day! I got up after the second snooze โฐ and dressed. Walked and fed my gall and, of course, I headed to the gym. Today they were open ๐Ÿ˜‰ which was a plus haha. Last week I’d been standing in the rain as it was closed due to an internet malfunction. I started with two arm exercises. But they hurt me a little. The weather is getting colder again and my body needs time to adjust again. Meaning I get more muscle aches for the next few weeks. It sucks, but I now know why it happens and I just need to take it a bit easier. So I did two exercises and then headed to the seated bike.

To the sound of a heartbeat pounding away
To the rhythym of the awful, rusting machines
We toss and turn but don’t sleep
Each breath we take makes us thieves
Like causes without rebels
Just talk but promise nothing else

We crawl on our knees for you
Under a sky no longer blue
We sweat all day long for you
But we sow seeds to see us through
‘Cause sometimes dreams just don’t come true
We wait to reap what we are due

I read up on some blogs and wrote a little for this one. My usual routine on the seated bike ๐Ÿ˜‰. Then half an hour on the treadmill, I managed 5,4km/h at incline 8%. I wanted faster but the damn colder weather is making my muscles and tendons hurt ๐Ÿ˜”. So making the best of it. In the end I walked 3,34km in 35 minutes. An average of 5,7km/h, as I had been able to up the speed as the incline lowered. So I tried to make the best of it. Then I headed home where I ate breakfast and then rode my bike for an hour.

I washed and changed and when our friend came for the fitness pass, I walked a bit with her to the Appie for some groceries. When I got back I rode my bike for another 25 minutes. Then I changed my bedding, as the thin blanket was getting a little cold now the weather turnes to (almost) slightly freezing during the night. When our friend brought the pass back, we went out with Arwen for walkies. The weather was rather nice and we had a good walk.

Some relaxing after that. I ate a little and then got on my bike for 90 minutes while watching Star Wars: Andor. The new series came out today, with 3 episodes immediately streaming. Not sure what I think of it yet. It’s definitely not boring but it also didn’t grip me like the Mandalorean or Obi-Wan did. Maybe because there’s less known about these charancers, so I need to get to know them first. I did recognize “Harry Potter’s aunt”, Fiona Shaw. ๐Ÿ˜Š

After the ride I relaxed with the rest of Andor and then some Ugly Betty. I made dinner for Arwen and myself and after that, I rode the bike for another hour and then 5 minutes cooling down. I did good with snacking, as I snacked a little, so my calorie deficit was really good today. Yay for me! Let’s hope I can keep this up. Every day about 500 calories should help me lose some fat/weight.

After some more Ugly Betty it was time to get ready for the bedtime routine. I was tired so hoping for a good night. ๐Ÿ˜ด

Positive: a nice, active day with a decent calorie deficit. I did eat one thing after making this image, so my deficit was about 800. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Ooof it’s getting harder to get from under the blankets as it’s getting colder during the nights. It was 5ยฐC when I got up and dressed. Walked Arwen with a warmer jacket (not yet my winter one though), gave her brekky and a snack, and I headed to the gym. I still struggle with weight exercises due to the sore muscles and tendons because of the colder weather. I hope my body may adapt a little better soon as I do miss those exercises now. They’re still not my favorites but they do help so… I don’t want to give up on them because of the colder weather. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ After three back and arm exercises, I got to the seated bike for my hour ride on there.

In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves on the ground

I hitched a ride, up to the coast
To leave behind, all of my ghosts
Searching for something, I couldn’t find at home

Can’t get no job, can you spare a dime?
Just one more hit and I’ll be fine
I swear to God, this’ll be my one last time

After my ride I got to the treadmill. Not as long or as high incline as yesterday, my legs were struggling as well. ๐Ÿ˜” I managed 2,2 km in 22 minutes. Then I headed for the crosstrainer for 17 minutes. Not the best times but I did do that, my best. After that I headed home. Washed up, changed clothes and ate breakfast. Walked a bit with Arwen and then got ready for mum to pick me up.

After we got some groceries, we headed home. I packed up the things in the fridge and then walked Arwen first. The sun was shining, making it a nice walk. After the 3km walk, I made lunch. Then I got to my bike and rode… As I had snacked in between! And it had tasted soooooo good but it were tonz of calories. So really gotta work it now to burn some of those… Preferably all but then I might not get off this bike until bed time ๐Ÿ˜‚!

During the afternoon I *finally* got my yearly end bill for my energy… Finally! And as expected, they’ll have to refund me some, which is very welcome. I’ll try to save some and use a bit on clothes I think. Maybe a game as well? ๐Ÿค” Ow I’d really like a PS5 ๐Ÿ˜‚ but that would empty the funds in one go, should I ever find one that’s not caught by a nasty scalper…

After 90 minutes I decided it was time to relax a bit. After thar I made Arwen and myself dinner. When we had finished that, I let Arwen out quickly for her thing ๐Ÿ˜‰. Then I relaxed some before riding another 90 minutes. I had consumed about 400 calories too much to burn… But I would try to make up for that tomorrow. As I always tell myself. ๐Ÿ˜Š Some relaxing and I think I dozed off a bit before it was time to get ready for bed.

Unfortunately the upstairs neighbors were very loud and after a while, I turned on my iPod player and turned up the volume for a while. After that they were a bit more quiet, maybe the hint had gotten through. I understand my bed time is early but that much noise is never really needed, me thinks.

Positive: trying to get exercises done, even now my body aches more due to colder and more wet weather. ๐Ÿ˜”

Gaming: too busy today to game…

Friday

Waking up with a stomach ache is never fun, so I ran to the loo. Damn you IBS. I’ve had it for 9 years now and I still hate it as much as I did back then… I learned to cope, as much as that’s possible, but it can still hurt like hell for sure. After thar, I got dressed, got Arwen’s food out and we went for walkies. 7ยฐC this morning. Autumn is here for reals now. Cold and wet weather. Painful weather ๐Ÿ˜ญ. Damn the influence the weather has on my pains. I really prefer the summer as I’m in way less pain then… ๐ŸŒ…

Hold on for a second
If words can be weapons,
Then what I say can affect it.
They’re not just words on a record.

And I can choose to respect it,
Or choose to infect it.
But once that hits the water,
It’s too late to be selective.

‘Cause one voice is enough,
To make sleeping giants wake up.
To make armies put their hands up.
And watch whole nations stand up.

So I headed to the gym. Did one arm exercise and it felt painful. So I headed to the seated bike. Bummed, but I have to listen to my body. Maybe I could use my dumbbells this afternoon ๐Ÿค” that could help me… Fingers crossed ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป the pain will get less during the day. I wrote for my blog, I read others’ blogs and my legs did the work. I’m still trying to adjust the intensity every ten minutes. It is still hard, especially with my muscles being so sore. But I’m not giving up on this as I know I can do this!

My tummy kept rumbling. I didn’t want to have any of the IBS issues on the loo here, so after a while, I decided the smartest thing to do was head home. I had walked a little on the treadmill but I didn’t feel “safe”, if that makes sense. Plus my stomach’s noises were also painful (and in a way dangerous when I’m in a state like this but I had to try). Usually when “it’s out” I’m safe and I slowly start feeling better. Not this morning, unfortunately. So I headed home where I washed up, made and ate brekky and texted with our friend for walkies. We’d go for walkies first and then she would go to the pool. I had wanted to ride my bike. Instead, I made sure I was “good to go”, and went to a store for some meds. Of course I forgot half of what I needed so I’ll probably be heading back on Saturday.

When I got home I felt dead tired! I spent some time on the couch, browsing the Decathlon app. I found two shirts, and some pants and a few socks. It was less than โ‚ฌ100, so within the “budget” I had given myself. I placed the order and now will have to wait over a week go get it. Delivery times can be hard. But it’s fun to have new pants and some shirts for the fitness. I hope the pants will fit, I based their size on other pants I have from that brand. It should be warmer walking pants, which sounded good to me. As when the weather gets colder, my muscles and tendons hurt more. I still would like to get my walks in, so warmer pants could help me achieve that.

I wanted the blue ones but they were sold out in my size… Unfortunately. But black is OK, I wear a lot of black. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I dozed a little on the couch, feeling exhausted. Then I started to get this huge empty feeling in my stomach. I decided it would be wise to make early dinner otherwise I may result to snacking a lot. So I made early dinner for me and Arwen. While I was eating my bestie called me. We chatted and then she had arrived at her destination. I was done with dinner so I went out for a 1,5km walk with Arwen. As we had been last in the early afternoon. After that I relaxed again, until I had some energy for a short bike ride. I used low settings and rode 77 minutes. I played a little Lego and even got a few unexpected trophies, which was nice. Then I was all spent and I watched Ugly Betty till bed time.

Positive: didn’t sh*t my pants ๐Ÿ˜‚ got a little exercise in as well. Not as much as usual but still… ๐Ÿ˜Š

Saturday

I had a good night, it just felt a little short… It wasn’t really, I think I just enjoyed it a lot. ๐Ÿ˜ด But my โฐ alarm went off, so time to get dressed and take care of Arwen. I saw they expected some rain today, so I got the โ˜” umbrella in my gym bag and headed out. I started with some strength exercises. I even tried a few things, one of them was hard (and I can’t remember the name), but with keeping myself stable on another bench, I was able to sort of do it ๐Ÿ˜‚. But I may feel those later today. Then I did a few arm exercises befor heading to the bike.

Head down
Wrong fit
Big deal
That’s just growin’ up
Untouched, sixteen
Don’t overthink it, boy
White arrows will break
The black night
But don’t overthink it, boy

And when you’re out on a ledge
Please come down, boy
There is a place that exists
Just give it some time
Drawn arrows unseen will fly

I was looking to pre-order the white vinyl edition LP of the upcoming PG Roxette album called “Pop-up Dynamo!”. I also saw a normal edition of the Rammstein album Zeit and as I got some money back from my energy company, I decided to get that as well. I could have ordered way more as they had great vinyl records and I love them! But I need to save a little as well. Spend what I allowed myself and the rest will go to my saving account and some to my three piggy banks. One for mum, one for Arwen and one for gaming. ๐Ÿ˜Š Ow and I need to repay my parents some extra for my phone. Can’t forget about that. But I’m so happy I’m getting some money back! And that I still have a cheap contract for almost 3 more years… Hopefully, by that time, prices have gone normal again, as in lower a bit. With all that electricity being won by windmills and the sun and all that, they should be able to make it a tad cheaper I’d think.

Sorry for the low quality image, best I could find today. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I was excited about my orders, the vinyl and clothes, but I’d have to wait a while before I get them… As my one vinyl is a pre-order so they probably send Rammstein when PG Roxette comes out. Sooner would be welcome ๐Ÿ˜‚ but it’s not expected. Soooo I rode the seated bike for an hour and it went better than yesterday. Although I did burn quite some calories then too, 392 (!) according to Polar. After the bike I headed to the treadmill, walking it without cramps should be a lot better as well, I’d recon. ๐Ÿ˜Š I timed 26 minutes and then I tried running two short times. I held the side bars, had speed at 7km/h and did a minute each. So I ran for two minutes in total. It was so scary, I tried to hold the bars as loose as I dared. I was the only one so no one saw me ๐Ÿ˜‚. Must have looked weird… But if I’m able to try it again tomorrow, I will. It’s nice to try something new. Something I haven’t dared in like forever!

After my “running” it was time to head home. I washed up, made breakfast and texted our friends that Arwen and I were getting ready for walkies. We were a bit earlier as the running had made me go home a bit earlier from the gym. I didn’t have any energy left and that’s OK. I used to be bummed for not being able to do this or that. Now I look at all I did do and damn it, I ran for two minutes. OK, two times one minute with some slow walking in between. But I did it! Even though I was scared of going faster on the treadmill. I held on and I did it… ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

So we went for walkies. It was a bit rainy at the end. I needed some groceries, so we were able to visit the Jumbo for a bit. I got my breakfast, sateh sauce and frozen meat for Arwen, so we could head home again. I relaxed a little after putting the groceries away. Then I rode my bike for 90 minutes. And while it felt good, I also felt some fatigue. So after this, I rested and played some season one Walking Dead. I keep forgetting to take screen shots as I’m so pulled into the story! Even though I played it (started it) in 2017 on PS3. That seems ages ago now, after all that has happened… But because all that happened, my recollection of the game is wonky at times and it feels new because of that. I do remember bits… And then I had to do the part I had needed help with back on PS3. I wondered if I’d ever be able to get through, as I kept dying… But in the end I did make it! Yay me ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ.

I ate a little and rode my bike for another hout. Then I took Arwen out for a walk. She wanted a short one so we did walk a little less than I hoped for. But still, we had a nice walk. I had wanted to play some Secrets of Monkey Island or maybe some Sam & Max. But I could not concentrate enough. So I watched some TV until I made Arwen and myself dinner. After that I relaxed some and then I put on Ugly Betty while I rode my bike again. I had snacked a little so my calories weren’t in a deficit. But they were close enough. Weigh day tomorrow morning… Curious if I’m the same or… ๐Ÿค”

Some relaxing until it was time to get ready for bed. Took meds, brushed teeth, walked Arwen… And then I took my painkiller and melatonin and read until I fell asleep.

Positive: even with snacking, I was only about 150 calories in the plus… So hopefully it didn’t destroy the deficits I’ve had a few times. Owww and I ordered those LPs! Want to spin them so badly… ๐ŸŽถ

Happy Sundog / Sunday

I had a good night and I didn’t want it to end ๐Ÿ˜ด. But yeah, alarm โฐ going off meant needing to get dressed to care for my sweet gall. ๐Ÿพ And then, as usual, on my way to the gym I went. I started with a few arm exercises, but I struggle with these, making me way less motivated to do them. It’s not bad pain, I know I can keep going. But pain is something that makes it harder to do just that… Sometimes I have enough energy to push onwards. But now, with me gaining weight and not being too happy about myself… It’s hard as I keep having this voice in the back of my head saying “I’ll mess it up anyway, look at that so called weight loss…”. I’m still learning how to ban that voice from my head. But years of conditioning have left some big scars. ๐Ÿ˜”

Who’s to know if your soul will fade at all?
The one you sold to fool the world
You lost your self esteem along the way, yeah

Good god, you’re coming up with reasons
Good god, you’re dragging it out
Good god, it’s the changing of the seasons
I feel so raped, so follow me down

Just fake it if you’re out of direction
Fake it if you don’t belong here
Fake it if you feel like infection
Whoa, you’re such a fucking hypocrite

I went on to the bike and read some blogs. I also wrote a little for my own site. I didn’t ride for an hour today as I needed the loo and I didn’t want to get back on for a few minutes. I just headed to the treadmill. I tried some 7km/h running again. First time I managed 1:30, and then twice for a minute. It’s still very scary and hard. But I want to keep practicing and hopefully, some day, I can go faster and without holding the bars. Because I do that, my watch has trouble tracking the exercise, my wrist doesn’t move as it should be doing during a run or walk…

Screenshot_20220926-051924_Polar Flow

The bits where I have no speed, it’s because I’m holding the side bar. I’m hoping, one day, I’m stable and comfortable enough to let loose at least my left (watch) hand ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

After my time on the treadmill, I went to the crosstrainer for a bit. Then, time to head home. It was a scale day, so I was hoping for some good news. Nope. Gained almost a kilo! I know my bad days outweighed the good ones. But of course, some good days made me hopeful. I’ll get on the scale again this Friday. Maybe I can get some off again before then? ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

I washed up, made and ate brekky and contacted our friends for walkies. Send a few Arwen pics and a silly Arwen video. I put away the washing as they were dry. Then it was time for walkies. It’s really autumn now, it was chilly and if we stood still for a while, it even felt cold. But the weather app I use daid it usually was at least 5 degrees warmer around these days. Last year it was even 10 degrees warmer. Hopefully we get some nice warm days so we won’t need the heating for some time to come. I still have a cheaper contract, but still, it’s expensive that way as well.

After walkies I headed to the Appie for some groceries. Then it was time to rest a little. I played some Sam & Max while riding my bike. I had wanted to play some Lego game but I had trouble with my concentration, again. ๐Ÿ˜” After the ride I made some lunch and watched TV. I let Arwen out again and then played some Walking Dead while riding the bike again. If only I could steer clear from the snacking, I’d have a body to die for with all my exercises ๐Ÿ˜‚… But yeah, I self-sabotage as you know…

Dinner for Arwen and myself made and eaten. And then… Arwen threw up on the couch ๐Ÿคฎ! Damn… Trying to control my gag reflex I cleaned it beat I could. Arwen looked so sad when I did that… I gave her some light snacks as her stomach was empty now. She slowly ate those and looked a bit happier again. I rode my bike but I struggled to make it to an hour. I was just too tired. So I relaxed with Ugly Betty and some Castle until it was time for bed.

Positive: trying to get my exercises in, even though I felt a bit blah today. And I got some gaming done ๐ŸŽฎ.
