My Actifit Report Card: July 19 2022
Very little to report today. Trying to get back into these activity reports more reliably.
Most of what I can say is just my woes from the week. For the past 3 weeks, my wife's minivan has been giving us fits. I have crawled underneath it to do mechanical work several times over the past 3 weeks, three of those times being since Saturday. It's been blazing hot for here in Springfield Missouri, with high temps today exceeding that of 100° f! So I was doing much of my physical activity and labor (which I haven't captured using the afit app) in high heat temperatures.
To add to all of this, my apartment's AC went out this morning. Thankfully, my landlord was able to get an AC specialist to come look at it tomorrow morning sometime, but I have spent all day in a humid and hot house after spending most of my weekends and several weekdays over the course of 3 weeks doing a mechanics work to avoid mechanics fees.
Although I feel like the universe's punching bag right now, I feel like peace is on the way, and the past 3 weeks will be just as much a blip on the radar as the past 2 years dealing with the anxiety of the pandemic have been. It's still crazy to me to think that we're on year two, going on year three, of this covid-19 business! Many people in my area seem to have reached the limit of their fuck it bucket, and have just resumed life as normal - accepting the reality that covid-19 is here to stay, and all of us will have it at some point in our lives, much like the common flu. I, for one, am just as ready as them to move on with life as normal and believe the anxiety riddled nightmare behind me.
Apologies that this activity report turned into a mixture of complaining and musings, but I suppose that's what these things are for isn't it? I'm hoping that once temperatures normalize a bit more and fairer weather comes in, to be more intentionally active in my daily walks or bike rides. I think I would also like to start doing some home exercises to strengthen my core, as I have begun to develop quite the beer gut! Problems of a man who makes a living sitting and talking to people to help them through their problems, I suppose.
I guess that's all! See you all in the next one.
As always, take care of yourselves and each other, and stay thoughtful.
Your friendly neighborhood dork,
