SURPRISE!! I remembered to do this!!
So here is the first of of the new blog.
I’ve had quite a good week. I would rate the first half of the week 8/10 and the second half a 6/10. I’ll explain in a bit.
The start of the week went well things that I had planned I was sticking to and doing. There are still areas that I need to replan with regards to my energy levels and brain fatigue, but I’m slowly getting the hang of that. The days went like this………
Tues 2nd Good, this was a good day. I was feeling pretty proactive. Kept to my plan of the day. Deb came in from work and I got myself ready and took myself to the gym. The whole process train-walk to gym-do workout-walk to train station-train home takes 1.5 hrs so that’s good. I was really pumped when I got home. We have decided to watch Game of Thrones (GoT) right from the start again. Nothing like a bit of violence to finish the evening. I’d forgotten how graphic it is.
Weds 3rd Good, This was the CBT session were we decided that I was going to you my blog as therapy. The session was really good. Well they are always good it’s just making sure I keep that mentally when I leave. It took me all afternoon but I cleaned the spare room as diane is staying with us for a few days and the spare room had turned into a bit of a dumping ground.
Thurs 4th Good, this is a great day for me as I get to spend the afternoon with my great niece. She is such a little monkey. We kind of have things sorted now though. Becs (my niece) has her lunch all packed in her school bag and I get a taxi, collect her from nursery and then take her back home until Becs finishes work and then Becs brings me home. I had planned to go to the gym when Deb got home but this is what I mean by replanning some parts as for the last few weeks I’ve planned to go to the gym after looking after my great niece but I’m so brain tired when I get home I don’t go or offer to buy dinner for us all (like did tonight) and go to the pub.
Fri 5th Good, I was determined this morning and Diane dropped me off at the gym. Then once finished came back home got showered, dress and out for door again this time to go out for lunch. Lunch was yummy at The Sun. Then a bit of food shopping and home.
Sat 6th Good, I got the short straw today. Deb and Diane went out on a hike and I got to spend the next 3+ hours cleaning the front room floor. Call me cinders except the dog and the cats didn’t help with it, they just kept churning up all that I swept up. That wiped me out. I was very tired after. I went for a lay down at 4 and woke up at 8. Diane and Deb had started their The Hobbit uncut, extended, never ending marathon. I think there is 2/3 discs to each part. So I went back to bed and finished my blog.
Sun 7th Good I was sitting on the train yawning and thinking I was crazy. What are people thinking when they skip a nice lazy Sunday lie in for the gym. When I got to the gym it turned out that not many people wanted to skip a lazy Sunday lie in for the gym. They are the wise ones……….either that or they have a hangover…….na I’m going for wise. After my Sunday session was over I felt awesome so it’s definitely a plan for a weekend plus as I was leaving the place was beginning to fill up.
So after the gym and shower we went out to Harlow to do a few errands. Well a certain road we had to drive down is nightmare. I mean there was no plan made when this road was built. The roundabouts are appalling, traffic lights are shit and then add Sunday drivers (a nightmare on their own) but add that they have no idea of the size of their car and that equalled a very road raged Debbie!! To top it off this happened as we were leaving a industrial park…….
I mean brilliant 😂😂😂. He could got round the car in front to get on the path but he is a true Brit and waited in the que 😂😂😂 Myself and my aunty were in hysterics. Debbie was a bit 😤 but she did see the funny side in the end.
I then defeated the object of going to the gym in the morning by going down the pub to have a pint or 3 and watch the footy. Deb and Diane were carrying on there The Hobbit uncut, extended, never ending marathon that had started the night before.
8th Not Great, Slept really badly last night. Was awaking up a lot throughout the night, nightmares, not getting comfortable and pain in my right arm. So needless to say I didn’t do much apart from rest and sleep. Diane went back to Suffolk.
9th Not Great, same again last night. Little sleep so again today was shit. I took Luna out for a walk but that was really hard work as I couldn’t loop the lead in my right hand and trying to hold it in the same hand as my walking stick was a challenge. Had another sleep in the afternoon then it was round the in laws for dinner and a catch up which was nice.
10th Good, woke up this morning and decided I wanted to see how my hand was after is hadn’t done any CIMT for 4months since my breakdown. Well judge for yourself……….
The arm wasn’t bad today. Actually the best it has been so far this week. I’ll still rest it today and maybe start again in the gym tomorrow.
