COVID-19 Layoff: Day Ninety-Two

Happy 3 months and my last day in quarentine!

Today wasn’t very eventful to be honest. Drax and I hung out in the morning, got a couple walks in before it got too hot then hung out. Once Drax decided to nap I worked out, made lunch, got things ready for work tomorrow and watched some tv.

I didn’t feel like going out today, I just wanted it to be calm before the storm. I’m sure I won’t sleep tonight because that’s just how I am but at the same time I will probably take allergy medicine and that will knock me out. My allergies tend to be the worst at night and in the morning, the rest of the day I’m fine, just a couple sneezes here and there.

Now that I’m back at work I’m gonna need to figure out how I’m going to get my workout in. My hours are all over the place so my eating pattern will change and working out will have to change too. It will take time but I will figure it out.

I may write tomorrow about my first day or I may just finish the week off and end it at that, either way I can’t believe it’s been 3 whole months and we’re still going through a pandemic.

Thank you for reading,

Wish me luck tomorrow,

Maeg.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Seventy-Six & Seventy-Seven

Day Seventy-Six:

Welcome to another not so interesting boring day. I didn’t do much needless to say, I didn’t even work out!

The only interesting thing that happened yesterday was the crazy thunderstorm we had and I took a mini time laspe of it.

This is also why I didn’t have a blog, because I stayed up late, didn’t wash my hair and went to bed!

Day Seventy-Seven:

Another not so interesting day! The weather was weird today, I woke up and it was cloudy and windy with some chances of some rain. All of the sudden its sunny, humid and hot. Hot enough that Drax didn’t want to go on walks. Tomorrow morning I’m hoping he wakes me up early enough that we get a long one in before it gets too hot.

Today I did do a work out and I died. It was on resistance band workout, I didn’t think it was going to be that bad since the last one I did wasn’t that hard, apparently the last one I did was a shit workout!

So I do have a rant today, just a small rant, that I really shouldn’t since I know people are working very hard. Canada Post messed with my emotions. I ordered stuff from Gymshark, it said it was out to be delivered which made me very excited because I have nothing else to do. It didn’t come and when I checked later on it said deliever date pending and it was all of the sudden back at the postal facility. I was excited it was coming but now I don’t know what’s going on. ALSO I ordered The Body Shop a week before Gymshark and I don’t even have shipping for that! I know, I know, I shouldn’t be complaining at all. Just a small rant of playing with my emotions. I thank Canada Post workers big time and I know you’re all very busy and short staffed! We love you.

That’s all I have for today.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Sixty-Nine

Welcome to Day Sixty-Nine!

Dave and I woke up at 5:30am in hopes to buy shoes. Yes, you read that right, to buy shoes. Ben & Jerry’s teamed up with Nike to make a limited edition shoe, it went on sale in Canada this morning at 6am.

Those are the bad ass shoes that we failed to get. In the morning it was looking good, I got onto the site, logged in, pick the size and added them to my cart then all of the sudden something pops up saying enter your phone number and a code will be sent to you as extra security. Bullshit. What happens when you send a million text messages all at once? It gets jammed and that’s exactly what happened. Eventually on my screen it said all sold out so we lost our chance! It sucks but it happens; they sold out in 11mins!

Part of the reason why Dave wanted them was because the shoe box was in the shape of a Ben & Jerry’s pint. The box is now a collectible too! It is pretty good and they were only $135 CAD.

Dave we failed our mission we all went back to bed until Dave had to get up for work, I of course kept sleeping until Dave walked out the door because Drax needed to go out and wanted to be fed. I started my day early at 7:30am which was kinda good because Drax got a walk in before it got to 40 degrees.

The rest of the day was a write off, I didn’t do much, I didn’t even workout because I was so sore today. Tomorrow I will be back at it but I did get a 2k walk in tonight with Drax before it got dark. I did attempt to make a mask for myself since the ones I ordered have yet to show up so at least I have one for now. I was thinking of going to a coin car wash tomorrow to clean my car and then NOT park in my parking spot since the tree I park under RAINS down berrys, twigs and bird shit. I also need to vaccum all the dog hair out of the car so there isn’t too much build up of it. That might be the plan, not sure yet.

That’s all I got today.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Sixty-Seven & Sixty-Eight

Day Sixty-Seven.

The weather has been hella nice lately but it’s slowly getting extremely hot. My Dad was home from work so Dave, Drax and I loaded up the car with my tires and the family and drove up to Hillsburgh. My Dad changed my tires over for me and we had lunch while the dogs played around all afternoon. My Dad has two dogs, a red fox lab and a bernese mountainn dog; the lab minds his own business but the bernese is a grumpy old man but Drax doesn’t mind really, he just loves having dogs as big as him around.

Eventually we drove back home and everyone was tired, Dave and Drax napped and I just did small things around the house until it was dinner time and Drax’s late night walk.

Day Sixty-Eight.

Today was a productive day, I went grocery shopping since last night Dave and I noticed our fridge was completely empty. Grocery shopping alone is meh but I did get to take my time and figure out stuff while I was there. I just like having someone push the cart. I came home, put the food away and then worked out. Today I did some pilates that I completely suck at and I’m super out of shape! Once working out was done I deicided to make a sandwhich because I didn’t want to make the apartment hot since it felt like 37 outside! Laundry was 30mins after lunch which is annoying, I absolutely hate going up and down! Laundry goes something like this: I live on the 6th floor, so I go down to 1 put clothes in the 4 washer, go back up, wait 30mins to go back down and put them in the dryer, come back up to hang any clothes I didn’t want to dry, wait 50mins and go back down to get the dry clothes and folding is always a pain!

I hung out until Dave came home, we made dinner, walked Drax around 8 so it was cool enough for him and now were hanging out watching some Netflix. Pretty productive day and now I’m super tired!

That’s all for today.

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.

DietBet

I have not posted anything in awhile and I’m sorry for that. I know I sat this every time I haven’t written anything but I have been busy just living life. Over the month I have lived with my boyfriend for five (5) days straight, worked my butt of at work, and just been trying to figure everything out. Living with my boyfriend was pretty fun, the first day we were both cranky from no sleep and being in blah moods but after that it was complete fun and we didn’t fight so that’s a good sign. It’s funny because we acted like normal people, we sat on the couch, me playing on my tablet and him either watching hockey or playing Titanfall.

Now to get to what this post is actually about. Have any of you hear what a DietBet?

It’s a website that you go on, you can either create your own game or join an open game. You pay a small fee that you can create (I made mine $25) then invite all your friends to join. Everyone has to pay that small fee that goes into a pot, now everyone who has joined the game has four (4) weeks to lose 4% of their current body weight. Whoever loses 4% by the end of those four weeks gets the money in the pot. If you are the only one who makes it, you get all the money. If two people make it then you have top split the money between those three people.

I started this with my family and invited some friends, the pot is currently at $100 and it starts in two days. Today was our weigh-in, you have to send in picture of yourself on a scale, then a picture of the scale with the word they give you to show it’s you.

Now that my pictures have been verified I can begin the game of losing weight!

I will have to let you know who wins the money at the end of these four weeks.

If you want to start your own DietBet here is the website so you can check it out!

Get Motivated

In my eyes getting older means getting fat. You get to a point in your age that you can’t eat whatever you want and you can just sit around and look good. To me I’ve never been in absolute great shape but I had a level of fitness most other people didn’t, I played rep baseball. Rep was all year around 3 nights a week for me, day one was pitching practice which is nothing but pitching for a straight hour but before you even do that you had to run 30 laps of the gym. Day two was your team practice which normally involved running 30 laps of the gym, a workout circuit, sprints, and baseball drills. Day three was batting practice, this practice was normally the fun one but your arms and legs start to hurt around awhile plus you have to pick up every ball that you just hit.

Now that I’m at the age where I can’t really go anywhere with baseball and need to work more then play sports, my fitness level has gone down the drain. Not only did my body and fitness level go but my motivation left as well. 

When you’re playing a sport you love you don’t realize that you are actually working out, now that I’m not training three nights a week then playing on the weekends I don’t have the motivation to get moving. 

Everyone knows I have a boyfriend and we definitely don’t eat healthy in anyway, usually when you go out with friends or family you don’t eat healthy so it makes everything ten times harder. I’ve started working out this February but it hasn’t been going very well, I worked out for four days straight doing different things and different parts of my body but I ended up going out and not working out for 9 days. I’m back at it again but my motivation of today will most likely not be there tomorrow. 

Once again I’m going to start trying to workout and maybe going to track how it goes on here but this is one of the hardest thing I find to do. I am 100% a lazy person! 

So help me out, think of workouts, pictures to add or just some words of motivation.
