    • There were 4 minutes of elbow plank holds today
    • Super easy day with it, though!
    • I kept the bandaid off in the shower!
    • Scabbing is going well!
    • Cherries are lovely...
    • If I can remember
    • (It's been 3 days, sticky notes are necessary at this point!)
    • I will be making cherry crisp tomorrow
    • Super curious how it will turn out!
    • (We make it with apples exclusively)
    • (Am I still having way too much fun with the cherry pitter?)
    • There are times Liam is surprisingly quiet with his bulk and nails
    • I definitely didn't hear him get up from the floor and onto the couch
    • There was a doubletake
    • Just a sudden large mass in the corner of my eye
    • Good thing it was daytime!
    • Good & Happy: cherries!!

    • Managed the jumping jacks!
    • Though I will admit they were more like hopping jacks
    • Not much height, nor width
    • But completed!
    • Walked Liam!
    • He was being a brat and I wanted to work off some energy
    • It worked!
    • So, I was today years old when I learned my grandfather wanted to be a priest?
    • But wanted to be married and have kids more?
    • And his Catholic upbringing made him blind to any deviation in religion?
    • (A simple overheard conversation between my parents about similarities between your spouse and your parent...
    • And my dad being a pastor...
    • The things you learn!)
    • I have scabbing!
    • I actually noticed it last night after I wrote my post
    • It's great progress!
    • I'm down to using a bandaid while sleeping and exercising!
    • Good: walking!
    • Happy: the most stunning sunset
    • (I took video, but it did the beauty no justice at all)

    • Slow day
    • Mom finally finished The Sandman!
    • I enjoyed watching it
    • Again
    • There are far worse things to waste time on!
    • My skin started hating my bandaids
    • Not the sticky parts, but the edges of the pad where it pressed into my skin
    • Now I'm wearing the plaster vertically
    • It works!
    • Dylan is doing a live for the first time in a while!
    • Good: lunch with family!
    • Happy: 2 year old giggles
    • (Can you stop a smile at that sound?)

    • Thank you, NancyTree!
    • Basics for today and yesterday
    • Had to cut the jumping jacks in half again
    • I think it's a cold
    • Chills, exhaustion, regular headaches?
    • It'll pass, whatever it is!
    • My arm is almost ready to scab
    • Am I looking at it and glaring, as if that will speed it along?
    • Yes.
    • If Dad could stop going outside and coming back in (repeatedly) before I wake up, that'd be great
    • Liam doesn't need to be my alarm clock
    • Really
    • Bottled iced tea is a rare indulgence
    • I just looked at the sugar content
    • It'll be a never indulgence from now on
    • (38g added sugar?!
    • 76% daily sugar intake?!​​​​​​)
    • I will go back to making my own, thanks
    • Con: went to 3 different stores, looking for lamb
    • Pro: ended up at Mom's store and got to walk out with her after her shift
    • Came home to a pup so tired
    • (All that barking this morning)
    • That I walked over him to no reaction
    • Finally got a tail wag before Mom walked in
    • And if that brat could please stop growling (playfully) when I try to retrieve the stolen napkin
    • But close his eyes in bliss as I scratch his nose?
    • Please?
    • (He doesn't give it up! He gets all the attention! He's too smart!)
    • I love my booger
    • Good: finally found lamb!
    • Happy: finished the double workout!

    • 100 Side Kicks (Daily Exercise)
    • Had a headache and chills all day
    • Did the daily exercise to keep my streak
    • My arm is at the uncomfortable itchiness from healing now
    • Can't wait until it starts to scab and I can leave off the bandaid!
    • TikTok has a few videos about a Starbucks walkout over an unfair firing
    • Turns out it's in Amherst, NY
    • I used to live in Amherst!
    • It's 20 minutes from me!
    • Wild...
    • I don't know what black magic Ben & Jerry's works
    • But the cherries in their Cherry Garcia aren't icy
    • ???
    • At least I'm pretty sure the great cherry flavor is from a flavoring oil
    • It's giving me ideas!
    • I still have too much of the first attempt!
    • Good: grocery shopping
    • (It warmed me up some!)
    • Happy: Liam gave me kisses twice

    • Well, my arm is much better!
    • So much so, I'm forgetting it's still injured...
    • And rubbing up against it accidentally...
    • So it hurts sometimes...
    • It is healing well, though!
    • I only did half of Cardio HIIT today
    • My head is still off
    • It felt like my brain was hitting my skull every time I jumped
    • Not pleasant!
    • Watched another 3 episodes of The Sandman
    • Am I being good and not watching ahead?
    • Not really...
    • (And I've watched it already! smh)
    • The ice cream did as I expected, unfortunately
    • The problem is my laziness:
    • I didn't want to have to wash the blender
    • So I mashed the cherries by hand instead of pureeing them
    • So they're rather icy at the bottom
    • Unless I can get others to eat this first attempt, I probably won't make it again
    • I'll get sick of it otherwise!
    • Good: I made supper even with a headache
    • Happy: cheesecake!

    • It does make much more sense for you to have it, Anek!
    • She says thank you, motionaction!
    • Basics
    • Almost back to normal!
    • If I can do the jumping jacks tomorrow, I'll be fine!
    • My arm was itching abominably
    • The healing process, right?
    • Wrong
    • I apparently should not use latex bandaids
    • There was a splotchy red shape on my arm hours after I took it off
    • I was very confused, because healing wounds had never been so itchy before
    • Glad I know the reason!
    • On the painful side:
    • I used ice to counter the itching
    • Numbed the area well
    • And then accidentally stuck my thumbnail under the bandaid
    • It was numb enough to only be shocking
    • But, yikes!
    • In other news:
    • Not entirely sure about this ice cream
    • The cherries didn't really blend with the cream?
    • I'm worried I'll have a frozen cream layer
    • And sweet underneath
    • I'll see in the morning!
    • Mom and Dad started The Sandman!
    • Only one episode in, but they'll make good progress tomorrow!
    • (Mom doesn't understand my laughter at The Corinthian, yet.
    • She will.)
    • Good: attempted ice cream!
    • Happy: The Sandman!

    My mum has a cherry pitter, I had so much fun with it back in the day! I think I'll ask her for it next time, I have a cherry tree and she doesn't...

    • Mama says thank you, Froud, TheLibrarian, Anek, LizardFriend95!
    • I could never watch one a week if they're all available, Froud! That's some self control!
    • Basics
    • Omitted the push-up from the burpees
    • Even holding myself up on a closed fist was too much for my arm
    • And I'm sincerely hoping the lightheadedness is from the blood donation
    • That was not fun
    • The cookies I made for Liam had nowhere near enough carob
    • They fell apart!
    • So I added some more peanut butter and rolled them in carob
    • Sort of truffles?
    • Liam loves them!
    • Best purchase I have made in years?
    • Literally?
    • Cherry pitter!
    • This thing is magic!
    • I'm letting the second try of luxardo cherries chill before tasting
    • And the no-churn cherry ice cream wanted frozen cherries
    • So I'm freezing some to defrost
    • Unnecessary extra step?
    • Yes
    • Will it be worth it?
    • Hopefully!
    • Good: fixed Liam's treats before they went bad!
    • Happy: cherry pitter!
    • (I had a childlike joy with that thing, Bees
    • So much fun!)

    It looks very promising I can't wait to watch the rest but I am very disciplined the old fashion way: one episode a week ^^
    Happy birthday to your mom.
    Burpees are the worst
