COVID-19 Layoff: Day Twenty-Nine

Snow, snow, snow.

Did it snow where you live today? This morning I woke up to a beautiful sunny but cold morning. I walked Drax, made my breakfast and started a movie while Dave was asleep. All of the sudden outside went dark and I looked over to see white. It was a blizzard outside. Literally all day that happened so we had to time our walks with Drax to not get caught in a random blizzard. Oh and all the snow, didn’t stay the sun would come back out and it melts.

Today was a meh day, I don’t know if it was the weather or what but I just wasn’t feeling it. Not much was done, I played animal crossing, made oatmeal chocolate chip muffins and started the first season of Ozark. Dave has seen the first season but he’s a bad Netflix boyfriend and watches shows without me. For example the movie I watched this morning was called 13 hours. He woke up an hour into it and said we already watched this! I said no, I’ve never seen this. He once again said we did. 13 hours is based on a true story and I love movies based on true stories and usually get hooked onto them – I have never seen this movie until this morning. Dave finally realized he watched it without me. Do any of you have bad Netflix significant others? Let me know in the comments!

So everyone in the quarantine has been baking, since you know all the flour and yeast have disappeared from grocery stores. What is everyones favourite quarantine recipe? I’ve only really made two new things so mine would have to be the bread, once I find the recipe again on Pinterest I will link it for you. I want to make more things though!

Working out needs to start again so I will figure that out. I want to get Hannah Bowers bands but money, money, money!

Tomorrow morning I’m most likely going to move all our plants into a bigger pot since the roots are coming out the bottom of most of them. I’ll have to take a new picture to keep you updated. My Mum sent me a picture that says, “Happiness is watcning your plant starting to grow.” 100% accurate. I don’t know what it is about it but it does make you happy. Even the succulent my client gave me is growing and THAT makes me happy because I usually kill those but I love them.

How’s everyone holding up? Another month to go, we can do this.

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 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 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.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer – Custard

I’ve slowly been getting into more makeup other then lips and mascara, which comes with concealer! I decided to try Nars and love it, the only thing is you don’t need a lot! That was my first mistake with this but it’s moisturizing, doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a lot of makeup on your face. I got the mini version at Sephora for $16.00.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Intensive Lip Balm

I absolutely LOVE this lip balm. I got the different one from first aid beauty that I’ve written about before but wanted to try this one as well. This one is amazing, it’s long lasting and it works! My lips feel amazing after. It does give you a tingly feeling once you put it on but that just means it’s working. I got this at Sephora for $25.00
