COVID-19 Layoff: Day Sixteen

Talk about a depressing day in the news!

Did anyone watch this mornings news? I watch it every morning then turn it off to avoid our reality. Let me save you the time, Trump is a fucking dick, we’re nowhere near the end of this situation and keep social distancing and washing your damn hands. On to the next day.

Today was workout day, there was also zero motivation. I sat around for a bit trying to get myself motivated to do the workout. I got it done but it wasn’t a good workout. Those days happen though. This morning I did a glute workout which consisted of 20 x 3 elevated glute bridges, 10 x 3 elevated single leg glute raises, 20 x 3 hip thrusts, 10 x 3 single leg thrusts, and10 x 3 single leg Romanian deadlift. Plus a 2 and half kilometer walk with Drax. My ass is going to be sore tomorrow. 

The rest of the day was a write off. Dave wanted to go to Krispy Kreme, we drove all the way there (30min drive) to find out the drive thru line up was 70 cars deep so we turned around to get DQ (that is literally 3 minutes drive from my house). The rest has been a Netflix and Quarantine night. 

For some reason I’m hella tired today so it’s time to wash my hand that has had Olaplex in it all day and go to bed!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Fifteen

15,000 steps!

15,336 steps to be exact. Literally all I did was walk today! Drax went on 5 walks today so he’s out cold. He’s been such a good boy during this whole pandemic, I thought for sure, “what am I going to do with a 90lb dog?!?” But it’s worked out fine.

Drax, the 90lb pittie of love.

Dave wanted to go to the grocery store so we did that. I personally didn’t think we needed that much food but he thought so so we went. Usually we don’t go grocery shopping until out fridge/freezers are empty but you know, pandemic! I guess it’s good to have extra food always in the house.

This is what my afternoon was

My afternoon was the picture above! Plus making dinner, brownies and taking Drax on his evening walk (one of the 5 walks). Today was rest day so no workout, that’ll be tomorrow, I’m sure I’ll die especially after beer. 🤦‍♀️

OH Dave and I got some seeds to pant because we’re bored and taking care of our dog is extremely easy so now we’re gonna take care of some plants! I’ll post pictures tomorrow or of when they actually sprout.

That’s pretty much it, I keep seeing likes from the same people, I appreciate you guys reading!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Fourteen

April Fools you can all go to work now!

When you put lotion on your hands and they instantly go red and burn like crazy because they’re so dry. Quarantine life!

This morning Dave had a zoom meeting so I walked Drax and attempted to keep him quiet. After that we walked Drax a BUNCH today. This dog is passed out! Normally he’s all in my face wanting to play. His life is literally eat, walk, shit, sleep, repeat. Living the dog dream.

This morning I worked out and watched Dave struggle to workout (he’s lazy lol) I did side planks, hip thrust, lunges, pushups, lunge pulses, and Russian twists. You do each exercise for 30 secs with minimal breaks in between. After you’ve completed all the exercises you take 2 mins break then repeat 3 times. It’s simple but effective! Plus 13,000 steps later helps.

I cleaned my house again and finally vaccumed so now the floors looks clean again. That’ll only last until tomorrow though because dog life! Not much else was done besides hanging out playing Animal Crossing (the old one, I wish I had the new one but expensive!) And dog walks.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Thirteen

I have never been so sore in my life. I’m walking around like an 80 year old!

Yesterday I did a workout (check out yesterdays blog if you’re interested) and it literally killed me. Now I haven’t worked out in forever because I’m a lazy adult that just gave up apparently, but we’re getting back into it. I decided today was going to be rest day (because rest is important too) then tomorrow I’m doing another workout. Stay tuned for that.

Walked Drax a couple times today but it was a misty/rainy day again. This weather is okay to keep people inside for COVID-19 but for Drax and my weather related migraines are not happy about it at all!

Today was lazy/grumpy day. Just being locked up this much is making me go stir crazy. I just want things to go back to normal.

On the bright side my friend bought me Swiss Chalet and I’m stuffed and happy about it. Boredom is life lately and I need to get out of it! Tell me your ideas to stay busy in the comments!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Twelve

Today was a good-ish day!

I did my usual morning routine with the dog but decided I was going to weight myself and workout. Have you ever heard have Hannah Bower? She’s like my favourite ‘workout person’, she’s gone through the journey herself of gaining weight, health issues and negetive self image. She’s so real it’s refreshing, she shows her family, her parenting style and so much more. She’s just positive and encouraging. She posted all her at home workouts in a story so I found one of those and did it! It was simple but it killed me (I’m hella out of shape); it consits of squats, situps, pushups, side lunges and supermans. Your first rep is 20 of each exercise, then you do 15 of each exercise, then 12, 10, 8 and 5 with minimal breaks in between. My legs are SORE.

My boyfriend misses hockey so much that he is using his NHL game to play computer vs computer just to watch the Leafs play. The man is going crazy. LOL

Not much else happened, besides we found puzzles at the dollarstore cause my awesome friend told me they were there! We got 3, they’re only 500 pieces but it’s something to do! We might set up a puzzle trade with someone because everywhere is sold out of them. Pictures to come!

That’s pretty much it! I actually almost forgot to write this so you know, duh. I’m going to go wash my very dirty hair and go to bed with Drax, he’s the best cuddle buddy.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Two

Welp, the highlight of my day was my dog walking into a pole this morning! That’s saying a lot about how my day went!

In the morning my dog and I walk every morning after he wakes me up. At one point there was another dog on the other side of the YMCA driveway, my dog Drax, was walking but looking back. Me being a dumbass was looking at what he was looking at then, BAM I hear and saw the tail end of my dog walking into the pole. I couldn’t help but laugh! He looked at me and shook it off, literally. He’s fine, he has a very hard head.

I probably walked my dog 4 times today so he’s having a good day! Not much has happened today, I decided to deep clean part of my house and I’ll do the rest later on. The rest of the day was putting our puzzle together!

With day two the boredom has really set in. I definitely felt myself going stir crazy, which is hella sad because it’s DAY TWO!

Side note, my neighbour just dropped off homemade bread and it’s fucking delicious!

That’s all for now folks, tune in for more fun adventures!

Feb 14th, 2012

This was the day that my ex boyfriend broke up with me for the hundredth time and made me walk a 30 walk home from the mall. When I got home I was done crying once again after hearing the same words over and over, and of course it was Valentines day. I believe I had to work this day as well, so I worked my shift that ended at 9:30 pm and when I came home my sister came into my room with the phone in hand with my dad on the line. My dad told me that our dog was really sick and that they don’t know if she was going to make it. He told me that I could come up to see her tomorrow if I wanted but I couldn’t because I had to work and finding a cover was really hard, especially last minute.

Feb 15, 2012

So the next day my sister went up to see her and I went to work thinking that I could see her on the weekend. My sister came home and everything was the same as it was the next day so I thought I would be able to see her, but when I came home my sister once again handed me the phone with my dad on the line to tell me this time that our dog Montana had died. I was completely crushed because everyone had gotten to go up to see her to say goodbye at least but I didn’t. Now every year on Feb 15th I put a picture up on facebook, write in my journal “R.I.P Montana,” and cry my eyes out because I miss her so much. 

Feb 15, 2014

My boyfriend called me to just to talk before he went to play video games to tell me sorry that he worked on Valentines day, that I won’t see him until Sunday and he knows the 15th is a hard day for me. I was good until he said that, I held back my  tears until we got off the phone and now I’m crying. I thought I would write this because maybe it would help a little bit but this is going to take a lot of time.

I’m sorry I didn’t get to say goodbye to her, it honestly kills me all the time when people bring her up. I know she’s in a better place, not feeling pain or being sad. I just miss her like crazy. 

R.I.P Montana 
I love you,
I miss you,
and I’m sorry I didn’t say goodbye.
