COVID-19 Layoff: Day Thirty One

Did anyone watch that at home concert tonight?

It was 2 hours but it didn’t feel like two hours went by, it was pretty nice.

Today I had a movie day! I watched 2 movies that were 2 and half hours long. The first movie was 12 Strong, it’s a war movie (I like those for some reason) about 9/11; anything that deals with 9/11 I will watch. I’m not gonna give anything away, just go check it out on Netflix.
The second movie I watched was Only The Brave, for some reason I kept passing over this movie but kept coming back to it then would pick something else. Eventually I didn’t know what to watch so I picked it. This was a crazy, good movie, I was not expecting to like it that much since I’m terrified of fire but jeez. I’m so not going to ruin anything for this movie besides that it’s about fire, go check that one out too on Netflix. If you are into movies based on true stories then check out my previous post here of my top true story movies. When I watch these type of movies I can’t believe people sometimes, there is some amazing people out there in the world. Just like all the doctors and nurses helping to fight COVID-19, thank you.

That was pretty much my day LOL as sad as that is but I just decided that’s what I was going to do on my Saturday. I walked Drax a bunch today which is good because I’m in a weekend Fitbit challenge. Gotta keep moving since all there is to do is eat – the snacking needs to stop that’s for sure!

That’s all for today! Stay safe everyone!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Twenty-Six

Another 28 days….

Today was another day if doing nothing because I don’t know what to do with myself anymore. I read my Broke Millennial book most of the day, walked Drax and ate my three meals with some snacks of course.

Ford announced today that he’s extending the state of emergency meaning we have another 28 days before anything goes back to normal. I honestly don’t think anything is going back to normal until 2021. Canada or Ontario at least hasn’t even hit the peak yet, all we’re doing is delaying it more and more while keeping the whole province going stir crazy. I know most people I talk too rather just shut everything down and lock everyone up for 2 weeks and be done with it. Then again there would be idiots who went to go play in the park or something even though that’s illegal right now. Stay the fuck home!

In my house hold everyone’s sleeping patterns are so screwed up. My dog is actually awake during the day now, normally he sleeps because we’d usually be at work. Dave’s is completely messed up since he stays up until 3am playing video games and falls asleep on the couch all night. Eventually at 8am, I wake up with Drax and he finally goes into the bedroom until noon. I’ve tried to keep my pattern up but it’s hard when you’ve done nothing all day, not to mention I absolutely hate our mattress. I sleep with Drax most night now because Dave is on the couch (usually Drax night time bed), Drax decided to take Dave’s bed. Drax even uses Dave’s pillow like a human, it’s actually cute.

I feel like I need to start making lists to feel productive. I read somewhere that making lists are good because your brain get’s satisfied for crossing something off and feels productive.

On a positive note, our plants are growing! I will take pictures and post them in tomorrows post!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Eighteen

Same shit, different day.

Uh what did I do today? Walked Drax of course, made another loaf of bread, cross stitched, watched a movie and cross stitched.

Life is mushing into one big day and it’s driving me crazy. I really need to stop eating bread, so I’m going to stop making it unless it’s for someone else. Tomorrow I weigh myself so we’ll see if the walking and workouts beat out the bread. (Probably not).

I did not workout today. I couldn’t find the motivation and when I messaged my bestfriend who is the queen of working out, she told me, “Sunday’s are for rest days.” It wasn’t much help so I didn’t workout.

Dave and I watched Onward on Disney Plus, it’s so cute! Go watch it if you have Disney Plus. If you don’t have it then what the hell are you doing? Don’t you know we’re in a pandemic? Nothing else to do!

So I have YET to be paid from EI, just as an update. This shit is taking forever and now tomorrow the website is going to be a complete shitshow.

Nothing else to report.

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.
