    Day 263
    PPL Push W4D19
    1 Minute HIIT Day 3 on Level 3

    No Floof Challenge today, she was outside for most of the day with Jules and his girlfriend. Another quiet day, did some preparations for starting work on Monday and trying to figure out the best course of action to keep doing things when I have less time during the day.


      Day 264
      PPL Pull W4D20
      1 Minute HIIT Day 4 on Level 3
      Floof to Run Day 9
      20 Mins Rowing

      Tonight is Floof's first night outside. Tomorrow is my first day at the side job. I hope I haven't made a stupid decision by putting both of these firsts around the same time.


        Catching up on your thread...

        I knew you'd get another doggo! I'm happy that Floofie is doing so good <3 Tell the fluff I love them. Pleaaaaase?


          Good luck with the new job, and good luck to Floof's outside night!


            f1shtacular Floof got told that you love her, I think she liked it. I'm still looking for that Laika or Setter, though. At one point, I'll probably have three dogs...

            Anek thank you!

            Actually, I hardly slept during the night from Sunday to Monday because I worried about Floof. Stupid me. She did good, probably didn't care for inside or outside. Me, on the other side, almost fell asleep during my first day at work. Was totally wasted in the evening and went to bed at around ten. Today was much better. Work is pretty nice atm. Me and my Dackel walk around and get a feel for the lay of the land. So far, I don't need the horse, but will use her when the distances get longer. She's more of a pony (ha ha...) but seems to be of decent temperament. Did some riding on the first day, checked how Fitz (my dog) felt sitting on the saddle. I think it'll work.

            Day 265
            Only did 20 mins of rowing, at least

            Day 266
            PPL Pull W5D21
            From Floof to Run Day 10 (in the darkness!)
            1 Minute HIIT Day 5 on Level 3
            20 Mins rowing


              All caught up on the last couple of months of your adventures. You probably saved Floof's life and hearing about his progress warms my heart! How are Floof and Fitz getting along these days? I heard somewhere that huskies are not territorial at all.

              Is Jules no longer around much cuz he's busy with his lady?


                lofivelcro Thank you for the cake recipe! It sounds soooo good. I may try it this weekend and let you know.


                  Floof is doing pretty well, Ninshubur, she and Fitz get along better now that she's become more active. Starting this week she's been outside more than inside, where she belongs, and Fitz doesn't seem to be wary of her size any more. Now that it's getting cold I think he's appreciating her warm and thick fur (his is short and he freezes easily). Jules still is here every weekend, now accompanied with his girlfriend who gets along great with my mother-in-law, teaching her the local language. I don't remember ever having such social and nice weekends in my life. It's great. I don''t really get why too teenager like to spend their weekend with us, but I like to think it's because Jules picks up a few skills and the town gets boring after some years. Idk.

                  Lady Celerity no problem, it's a bit on the sugary side, but I hope you like it when you try it. Like I said, it's best from the second day on.

                  Day 267
                  PPL Legs W5D22
                  From Floof to Run Day 11 (Floof struggled a bit, but could be coaxed with lots of fake enthusiasm on my side)
                  1 Minute HIIT Day 6
                  30 Mins of Rowing (Got me a blister on my hand and one of the handles fell off. I need to get a new screw for that)

                  On the sad side: I had my eyes on a nice used guitar that has been on offer since September. For stupid reasons I vowed to make an offer for it in November, because I really wanted it. Someone else bought it yesterday. I have no idea why I decided to wait. I've even dreamt of this scenario in my sleep back in the middle of October and didn't act on it. I could punch myself.
                  Ah, well, another will come along one day.


                    If you didn’t buy it immediately, you didn’t like it that much Just kidding, but don’t blame yourself for that, you’ll stumble upon a better one!


                      Of course I will stumble over a better one, ryś, and maybe I even buy it, ha! I have a weird relationship with money and at times am very hesitant to spend it. But it was such a beautiful instrument... ah, well.

                      Day 268
                      Floof to run Day 12 (did more of a light jog for 15 minutes than just walk)
                      1 Minute HIIT Day 7 on Level 3
                      30 Mins of Rowing

                      It's Thursday, and I forgot to add my weight on Sunday f$%&ing AGAIN. It was 50.6kg, plus 200gr.
                      Now with doing HIIT, rowing and being on my feet for most of the day, I get fed even more than before. Good for me that I don't have to think much about what to eat and when. I just get stuff handed and eat that, no questions asked. Otherwise I'd probably have stalled at 45 kilos or something.


                        What a bummer with the guitar

                        I must say that you're doing wonders with the weight since I first stumbled on your thread


                          Thank you, huma, I was just looking at my first post because of your words, and you're right. Not only that, I also realised that I didn't post only twice so far, and both not because I forgot. This is great. I always find myself logging in at the same time, plus minus one or two minutes. Seems like Darebee has become a part of my daily routine now.

                          Day 269
                          Floof to Run Day 13
                          1 Minute HIIT Day 8 on Level 3
                          15 Mins Rowing (I got graciously told today that I was rowing on the lowest level and that I can just add more resistance when it gets too easy. The machine has 12 resistance levels. Thanks for telling me so late, now I feel stupid)

                          A bit of a break from the PPL for now, maybe I try Ironborn again for some variation, maybe not, no idea rn.
                          First week of the side job done, have forgotten how much time working basically eight to nine hours eats out of the day. This week, I had manned the counter of my shop up to noon and went for the side job in the afternoon, but now that it's getting darker I should switch around, otherwise I'd need night-vision goggles or something (..I actually have some...). I spent a good amount of time on horseback today and couldn't help but wonder if I'd look cool or stupid on my feisty pony. Probably the latter. I mean, I have a Dackel wearing a jacket sitting in front in the saddle...
                          Weekend tomorrow and I'm glad for it. Only a tough and fickle customer I have to take care of and then I'll do whatever I like to do for the next two days.

                          Wish you all a relaxing weekend.


                            lofivelcro I think anybody who sits a horse well looks cool. Have a great weekend!


                              Thank you, Lady Celerity and I'm just going to pretend I sit a horse well for the free ego boost . I'm also trying to use some smileys from the first row from now on, because I feel like having trouble getting my point across.
                              Feels weird.

                              Day 270
                              Ironborn Day 1
                              Floof to Run Day 14
                              1 Minute HIIT Day 9 on Level 3
                              15 Mins Rowing (on Level 2!)

                              Started Ironborn again. I think it's a weird program in terms of dumbbell routines, with a weird progression. I'm used to "take a weight, do three or so sets of 10-12 reps, if you can do more, add weights the next time". Ironborn with its fixed sets and progression of higher numbers works differently. For example, I can do the shoulder presses with my selected weight and would use a higher weight next time. But next time (eight days later!) , the numbers rise and I don't know if that's feasible. It confuses me and when I try to discuss it with my other half (who's a PT) he shrugs and says "Do a real program instead". Yeah, might be correct, but I want that stupid badge at some point...


                                I’ve done Ironborn once, and during the first few days I was constantly adjusting the weights Even between the sets. And I had to write down the weights for each exercise, because I couldn’t remember them a week later..
                                And there were times where I added more weight, even though the reps were increasing, so you just have to find what works best for you!
