I ran out of time on Monday and Tuesday to blog this week, partly as I’ve been under the weather. I took yesterday and today off work, and I don’t really feel like I’m whole again yet.
Item 20.1 was a bit of fall TV premiere planning. Every fall, like a fantasy football league or something, I look at all the new shows coming out and predict whether or not I think they’ll make it to S02. I hadn’t had a chance to really go through them for 2021/22 yet, but I went through 27 of them for a quick review. My “sources” didn’t have all the shows in them, but they had most. There are at least another six that I’m tracking for possible review, while ditching another ten that are just too niche for my tastes.
Item 20.2 was a related item as I actually took some time last night to watch 3 new shows and 1 returning show. Right up until the TV service cut out for some needed maintenance. Now I have to watch the ending of what I missed. Oh well, it was fun to just veg.
Item 20.3 was a light stretching workout as I basically got Jacob and Andrea organized so they could do a routine.
Item 21.1 was the decision to call in sick today. I was feeling like crap this morning and I ended up going back to bed until almost 11:00. Feeling somewhat better now, so probably just a light bug.
Item 21.2 was active blogging. Notice above that I said I “planned” my shows and watched three new ones? Well, I also did the reviews for them today.
Item 21.3 was forcing myself to workout today properly. I worked out on Saturday, so I skipped Sunday, and didn’t even do my stretching. Yesterday (Monday), I slipped as I was getting out of the shower, and I felt like I compressed my lower spine on the left side. Nothing super serious, but it hurt for a few minutes. Jarring almost. So I stuck to just a light stretching routine (mentioned above). But today, I really needed to get back into it, and I did the full stretching routine around lunch and a full workout around dinnertime. I almost felt like it was time for a nap, but I applied some new planning levels for # of reps, sets, total weight, etc. It went well. I pretty much doubled my routine from last week as I was comfortable doing two sets of reps for all of the exercises, and for two in particular, I also either upped the reps per set or for bench press, I actually upped the reps and sets. I’ll likely hold at this level now until November 1st. Seemed like a good set up today.
