Got stressed 15’ getting ready to work, but 5’ autogenic training as soon as I could got that down again.
Cold at work:
Blanket & pillows on the floor instead of a sofa for resting with legs up/half-up while talking to people - welcome to my living/sitting room, guys…
3rd (thick) hoodie around my waist for the thighs, lying down, sitting, standing, good for cycling too, plus it means I’ll always have 3 hoodies I can swap 'em round. So not just for work. Pity, now I won’t have enough motivation to get me a kilt , like a female colleague suggested yesterday.
Boy, am I gonna take some getting used to but then I always was “difficult” that way
One colleague got all sentimental(!) seeing me back, so I guess I’m gonna get away with it.
New ideas from my cryotherapist/acupressurist:
Standing, hold one leg up at 90° for 30’’, then 30’’ rest, then the other. Or 60’’ if possible… Dunno…
Drink gherkin juice?? - not really relevant it seems to me…
Don’t get why, but like the idea. Bc of the onions in there I’ll have to gurgle not drink. OK why? https://www.womenshealthsa.co.za/food-and-nutrition/gherkin-juice-benefits/
She told me the good stuff gets taken up in the mouth, but this article suggests it’s the water, probiotics, if with vinegar it regulates blood sugar, some antioxidants - all completely irrelevant! But I just love the taste.
2 new ideas from a male colleague:
Arms to the sides turn them palm up then palm down, he says 30’’-2mins, I say 10’’'ll do me fine.
Burpees?!: Forget it, much too hard! …:
if you have a certain energy, but avoid injuries: https://youtu.be/tJrdJBWBu08. Oh dear, not a good idea, just did 4, that’s my max. at this moment.
I’d rather keep to the first 5’ of the 7’ scientific workout (much easier to cheat too).
2pm: 1’ of washing potatoes is more than enough. Softy . Alternate 2-3 kitchen actitivities…
Hand hurting from chapped bleeding dry skin from cold and water: wear gloves all the time, hand lotion on now. Self-care! Now!
Another 1’, and another, finished. Left face & right shoulder blade are burning, left elbow stabbing, skin itching in several places… Break!
Always had problems with house work, esp. doing something with arms up or working dough. Do better with gross motor skills like sawing… *that’s why I was made a bloke…? Or was it “fibro” long before??
How often to do breath-holding? This guy says 1-2x but in the comments it says: It helps against anxiety. Never thought about that, but it does.
