I have been super busy trying to prepare for quarantine the last couple of weeks. I haven’t been writing much, I haven’t been on my social media, or engaging in my chatgroups as much as normal. I will be trying to change this behavior ASAP. I still have a lot of topics I would like to write about, and I’m working on those now, and I’m starting to interact more in other places. I hope you all stay safe in this challenging time.
We meal prep virtually every week, I can’t remember a time in the last year when we didn’t, except for last week, it totally threw me off, we had a hectic Sunday and just couldn’t get time, and with 2 small kids, activities for them and work for us, Sunday’s is the only time we have to meal prep.
Last week my week was totally thrown off, I had to adjust my daily routine to try and scramble to make something before work, or stress about what I was going to get at lunchtime, and for two of us eating out for lunch 5 days a week can be quite expensive, there are healthy options, my work is right by a subway so that’s what I chose, but doing that three times last week was a little much.
So this week we got right back at it, meal prepped and ready to go, it just puts my mind at ease that I know we’re spending no extra cash, and that I know exactly what I’m putting in my body, as I am very much in the middle of a body recomposition and my focus has become very much into working out, being active and eating healthy.
Mixed brown rice and ground turkey, steamed broccoli, almonds, yogurt, and pinapple
So now I will relax Sunday night knowing our meal prep is done and that we are back in our weekly routine
I recently decided to take a break from extra chat apps, I deleted them off my phone, Slack is gone, Telegram is gone, and WhatsApp is gone.
The reason is I’m really getting focused on fitness and health related things, and even if I put a chat app on a second page or in a folder I can’t stop checking It randomly.
I also find myself spending time in them that could be much better spent elsewhere, and I have noticed myself being not as present with my family or what’s going on because I’m wondering what was said by who, etc.
By deleting them I no longer have that option, and it’s a great fit for me, I still am using Twitter and iMessage, that’s plenty for the time being.
I haven’t been writing much because ive just had a stressful couple of weeks, had some major car issues, so I had to get a ride to work, getting up earlier than usual, then worrying about it at night so I haven’t been getting enough sleep, finally got that fixed tues night.
Then last weekend we took the kids sledding and my son went down the hill and it was a huge hill all ice, just one walking path to get back up, and got scared when he got to the bottom because people can’t control where they go on the sleds and he almost got slammed into, so I went rushing down to get him and I slipped on the ice and my left leg went down and my right leg stayed planted and I just felt a pop, so I feel like I tweaked something, it still is hurting a week later.
I haven’t been able to goto the gym in like 2 weeks because of only having one car since I was working on mine and making sure the kids get to their activities and I couldn’t do anything anyways because of my leg, I could barely put pressure on it until tues.
On Wednesday my wife’s grandfather passed away, he took a turn for the worse on Monday and then passed on Wednesday but he was dying slowly for three days, which is extremely painful to watch and deal with especially for my wife, they were very close, and all of us thought he would live forever, he was super tough and had such a great outlook on life, he was kind and generous and funny, a true great man, and an inspiration.
Last night I got sick, which I rarely do but once a year, but I think it’s from the last two weeks not getting enough sleep, pushing myself hard, and the stress of everything. I went to bed at about 8pm last night and I woke up this morning and feel quite a bit better except for a sore neck because I slept on the couch, because I wanted to quarantine myself so no one got sick before the funeral on Monday
It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, but things are slowly getting back to normal, so I’ll be back to writing more often and back on twitter as well.
This weekend was a super busy and fun weekend. My wife graduated with her masters, My sons family birthday party, and a local Christmas parade. It was a lot of fun and quite a bit of rushing around.
