    It's always best to listen to your body! Get well soon!

      Chaotic, Trbrat75, TheGrayLynx, Anek, mavie and ryś, thanks all for your well wishes. I appreciate them a lot.

      It was a bit better today, the squishy swelling receded a little and it was easier to move around, but I still took it easy.

      Day 246
      Made With Love
      and a lot of walking around

      I'm usually not the kind of person to complain a lot, but damn, today was bad. I think I've last been this grumpy when I was confined to the bed and couldn't move at all. I felt like an old man today. Even skipped out on repairing stuff and I almost looked longingly at the weights lying around. I was on the brink of buying a pack of cigarettes when I was in town and saw the shelf holding them. I've smoked a lot in my life, but never tobacco. Not good. Didn't do it, though. Instead, I went home and had a long talk that made me feel better.
      We've planned a long night of making music and having a beer, so I'm positive my mood will be greatly improved by tomorrow.

        Awesome job on avoiding the cigarettes. As a former heavy 20+ year smoker, trust me when I say that is a road you don’t want to go down. Hope you feel better tomorrow!

          Get better soon, and making music is so much more fun than the resisted alternative

            …good vibes sent to you. Hang in there.

              Thanks, mavie, huma (you're absolutely right, music beats smoking every day) and mh_logic. 20+ years of smoking sounds hardcore. Tobacco and cannabis never really interested me, so yesterday was really something. Maybe I'm looking for something 'harmless' or whatever. But I'm really not down for going down that rabbit hole again.

              Anyway, today was much better. I'm almost feeling like my old self again.

              Day 247
              Easy Does It (WotD)
              20 minutes on the rowing machine

              I mostly tried to get the technique down. Not all that easy. Tomorrow I want to get back to the dumbbells, I miss them. Like I said, I felt much better today, the squishy thing is gone and only a very faint pain is left when I press hard against my rib. Good enough for me. We played guitar and bass until 3 in the morning, so went to bed with a great mood. I'm agonising over a pedal setup and haven't found the perfect one yet, but it was very satisfying.
              Could also go back to my work today. I got a rifle for some minor repairs yesterday, a beautiful Mosin-Nagant I've been keen to get working on since the customer left it with me. All in all, it was a great day.

                    Day 248
                    DB PPL Push W2D7 (I redid the last day to get started again)

                    I have no problems getting up and lifting the dumbbells, but everything else... Well, it's something.

                    Someone else in the house is celebrating a success though. My mother-in-law has finished Zero Hero today and wants to start Baseline tomorrow. Floof's making progress, too. Today, she actually came wagging her tail when I called her for a walk. First time for her, I think she finally gets her Husky instincts back.

                    I also went to town with my mother-in-law, we talked a lot, and she bought an electric kettle because she hates that we boil the water on the stove like cavemen (her words, not mine). I feel like I've finally reached the future. It's a kettle with LEDs in various colours and lots of beeping sounds. Somewhat confusing, but as long as he has fun, I don't mind. Did I mention that I'm more of a mechanic than a techie? I'm no big fan of blinking lights and beeps. Amplifiers excluded.

                    DV30: Jumping back into my PPL routine without having to convince myself. Also, this marks the end of hunting 30 days for victories. It wasn't always easy, sometimes I kind of cheated, but I managed.

                      Kudos to your mother-in-law for Zero Hero!

                        Cheers for 30 victorious days!

                          Congrats on completing the challenge of counting victories. I'd suggest you keep your eyes open for those, even without a formal challenge, because they are there and want to be appreciated.

                            Congrats

                              I'll deliver your kudos to my mother-in-law, Chaotic, thanks!

                              And thanks for the congrats, Mamatigerj, Fremen and mavie. I thought it was quite a hard challenge and I'm glad it's over. On some nights I sat in front of the monitor and racked my brains for something to call a victory. But I guess I got a bit attentive to positive things happening over the day. So, yeah, I'll try to acknowledge them more when they happen. And be glad that I don't have to hunt them any more.

                              I guess that's it with the mental challenges. I've eyed the Daily Hug challenge once, but, nah, I can't bring myself to try it. It's great that it helps others, but I'd feel plain stupid doing that. The others aren't really interesting to me. It was interesting, though.

                              Aside from that I cast the foundation for Floof's hut today. And am not sure if that sentence makes sense and if I chose the right words. Had a great day. That is all.

                                Makes sense to me.
