    Hello, everyone,

    I would just like to express my deepest gratitude for your support. I've been able to process all of this and I've been hit with some sort of flu from Wednesday until basically today. I got tested again, still negative, so at least it wasn't covid. The funeral was very emotional but also very soothing and nice. I don't know what the wake protocol is in your cultures, but we went to a restaurant after and had tons of food (some family members had quite a few drinks as well), but it sort of lifted the mood, and everyone felt better afterward. She was the link who brought all of our families together and there we were together, again, for her. My grandma's having a blast at her sister's as well.

    After that, I was basically sleeping through my virus contagion and watching movies and thinking. I'm feeling better today, I pushed through my first workout after a week and I felt weak but it's also a victory counted because I pushed through. Don't worry, I didn't push myself too hard. My sister and I also applied for a 5k run in September so I'll start training for that asap. I've decided that I won't break my streak this time, even though I was fully resting for 3 days (had a nice walk yesterday with my mom). I'll hit 60 days in 2 days and I'm really looking forward to upgrading my badge. I've found that small, repeated pleasures can really bring up a day. I've also been struggling to get anything done this week - actually it was completely off my mind - but now that I'm feeling better, I've decided to tackle this project fully and that I'll dedicate it to my auntie once it's done.

    Thank you again for your kind response, I read every comment. Thank you for the comfort and support. I've been thinking about this topic on and off for days now and I'll probably continue to do so. Also, I'm quitting Dash! challenge for the foreseeable future, since I'll be going on some hiking trips in the next month and I really don't see how I can fit it into my schedule. I'm continuing with everything else. See you in 2 days. Thank you, again.

        Sorry to be so late. Condolences to your family, and take care. You are in my thoughts. You wrote a great text.

          It's great that you're feeling better! I entirely agree about pushing (gently) through when not feeling well. So glad you were able to!

          Best of luck on your project.

              Glad to have you back and happy you are recovering from the flu. Ease into it and I look forward to reading your logs as your journey continues.

                    Thank you all, truly.

                    All in all, we're all doing better, a lot of family members have gone to the seaside. I'm at home, catsitting and I've become a cat auntie because my sister and her boyfriend adopted a little cat. All in all, I'm doing alright, I'm re-evaluating some life priorities and stuff. But all in a positive way, I think.

                      I guess I'll try to be back with my regular posts. I've continued to work out ever since I got at least a bit better. Here's where I'm at:

                      Workout:
                      8 weeks to 5k (13/56) - walk/ran 2.26 km.
                      Core Control (24/30).
                      Touch Your Toes Challenge (17/30).
                      Posture Challenge (11/30).
                      Walked with a friend - 2.62 km.
                      Seated Boxer (I've been doing this for the last couple of days, and I'm done with this one) + Chair Ab Workout.

                      Push-Ups
                      Wall Push Up Challenge (11/30). Upgraded this to a partial incline push-up challenge instead of a full-on wall push-up challenge. I did 52 incline and 18 wall push-ups. Total count: 70.

                      Meditation
                      50 days of 5-minute meditation (19/50).

                      Me 2.0
                      Woke up @9.45 am. My biorhythm got pretty messed up and I'm slowly correcting it back.
                      I've also challenged myself to stick to the Modern Hero Mealplan for 90 days (I can have 1 cheat meal every 10 days). Let's see where it takes me. Today is day 1.
                      Counting Victories Challenge (5/30). Here are some victories from the past few days: pushed through Unplugged Lvl 3 (I hate this workout so much, 2 more times to go and I'm done forever), I've ended a toxic relationship (been thinking about this for a couple of weeks now, it breaks my heart but it's for the best), and today I've had a better run than yesterday.
                      I'm still reading Dickinson and Kay. Read this amazing poem today, I really like Emily even though I sometimes have to re-read some songs because of some old-timey words I don't understand.

                        Congrats on starting back up and starting the Modern Hero Meal plan.

                          I'd love to know how you get on with the meal plan!

                          Ending a toxic relationship is one of the hardest things to do. That takes such strength.

                            I'm glad you are feeling better.

                              Modern Hero Mealplan (2/90). So far so good, I instantly feel better when I start eating healthy.
                              Counting Victories Challenge (6/30). Did 2 additional workouts even though I really wasn't feeling it. I want to finish my plan with these workouts ASAP because I'm planning on starting another challenge or a program.
                              Read 2 poems.
