Since my family isn’t going on a beach vacation this year, I decided to make a solo trip to Biloxi this weekend. Don’t worry, I stayed away from large crowds. I mostly just went for the beautiful scenery and the sand.
I can now do everything I need to do! Well, most everything. It’s still no substitute for the gym, but it’s good to add weightlifting to the list of things I can do at home.
My routine is as follows: pushups for my upper body push muscles, pullups for my back, and sprints for my legs. Dad’s offered to give me some weights from his garage. Things are looking up in terms of fitness.
One of the most annoying things about living this way is the lack of a gym. When there’s no people around it’s hard to have fun working out. That being said, it’s still important to work out. And it’s still good to have a pleasant walk outside (keeping social distancing in mind, of course).
Good News: No Crohn’s Disease after all!
Bad News: Still have ulcers. Weight has reached nearly 200lbs. Tooth is hurting. It’s time to start back with weight loss and a smarter diet.
Took a lot of writing breaks this week. Part laziness and part need to chill. Very little reading done for the same reasons. Joined Critique Circle.
A family member is having health issues. Some of us visited yesterday. Not getting into any more details on this but hopefully things will get better for them.
I’ve decided to give myself one cheat meal per week on Monday nights. Typically this will probably consist of pizza. I can’t help myself. I need something to stave myself over every so often. I haven’t been following my diet as much as I should, so I’m going to also start keeping a food diary in OneNote.
Did I write this blog post after wolfing down most of a pizza? Haha yes I did.

A couple weeks ago I wound up hurting my back/leg. Everyone seems to think it was the sciatic nerve so tomorrow I’m going to call the doctor. In the meantime I’m going to slow down on the weightlifting and do more walking.
I’ve decided to dedicate evening workouts to rehab. I’ve had longstanding issues with my neck and back that need to be resolved long-term. I didn’t do the rehab routines on a regular basis and it’s time to start doing that.
In related news, I’ve gotten a new gaming chair to support myself.
Today was the first day this year that I showered with the space heater heating the room. Long live winter!
It’s so wonderful the beauty of the natural world. Higher quality photos can be viewed here.
