Rewind

Pic from yesterday, and I wish to rewind. It’s 19h00 now and in 11 hours I have to be on the treadmill before work, and stress through the Paris streets to not be to late at the office. Last bike day in a while it seems cause it’s rain warning all over next week.

So what about Sunday? Ah, gym, laundry and still not done what I was set to do inside. I almost hope for a rainy weekend… Stay inside, order in food and just dust cd´s and put them in alphabetical order.

Take care

Weekends

Can we all sign the “weekends to short” list? At least Im not ready to go back to work after 1 day of weekend…

1 day??? I know, many people count Friday and Sunday as weekend, but all those are so wrong.

Friday – it’s a work day, so don’t count it.

Sunday -stress starts to be able to be ready for Monday.

So we have Saturday, the only weekend day.

Testresults, done

So, my 6 month check up done, and even the doctor turned out to be surprised. All the results, we usually look at, turned to be much better.

The test

Look at the dip, and it’s only cause of the workouts, nothing else. And I have gone from pre-diabetes to not at all… But I also need to keep it up, which gives another aspect to the results… I want to rest!!! I want to eat, a bit tiered of being hungry with spaghetti legs 24/7.

On the bad side, my noradrenalin and cortisol is over the roof, and show that I’m obviously extremely stressed at the moment… Without knowing it. And both is bad for the heart, risk too clog things up and that is something I have to avoid. Can only sadly say it most likely caused by the situation at work and the stress to manage to do the workouts every day. We will see how it looks next time.

But today at 07h51 I must say I been a good boy today.

Have a TGIF now

Chilly

And no, I’m not talking about Chilly White the singer. It’s just cold in the mornings now, and dark. I also understand I have a 5 minute slot to leave my home and have a almost no cars in the street ride, or too late and end up behind delivery trucks, bin collectors and criss crossing mopeds and motorcycles who cause the criss cross get stuck and block the bikelanes.

I’ve said it before, and do it again… IF there will be a serious accident involving moi, it will be with other bikers, mopeds, scooters or pedestrians – not likely a car. But as all over the globe… Why do people driving cars see the use of the blinker as a random tool to play with now and then?

Manufacturers should really put in a device that give a high ear hurting noise in the car if the driver not used the blinker before turning. Like an automatic punishment. And if it happens more than 10 times in a day, the motor shut down for 7 days.

Look at that idea “Decade for road safety”

Blurr

This is how things go when I am trying to much… Try to fit in 60 minutes of work in 30 minutes, everything around me gets into a huge blurr. I hear people, I see people but at the same time not, they kind of not entered my “Matrix”.

But, I managed to leave home 30 minutes earlier today than yesterday… With only 10 minutes shorter workout. Which means I need to add 10 minutes tomorrow OR do an extra session this evening. I Think I will go for option 1. Mainly cause I have not washed the clothes yet. Can’t start a washing at 7 in the morning. Even if my neighbour think it’s a good Idea to do it at 23h00 in the evenings. Yes, new neighbour above me.

Have a nice day now

Björn

Morning workout

I started the week with the new “try to change my training schedule” regime. So up early and do the workout before work. And what work out perfectly during weekends and when I work from home is a struggle knowing I have to stress home and go to work after.

Today I really could have done 90 minutes, fresh legs, but with a deadline to be able to get to work in time it’s a no.

At the same time, going to work by bike in rush hour takes me around double the time from earlier departure from home. So no time saving at all doing it this way.

As promised I will now, today, update the weekly covid cases in France for the last time and only talk about it if there is any changes worth noticing. Cause we have reached a place in the Covid pandemic where there is few changes in the daily reports.

With that, have a nice day, week and don’t give up

Björn

TGIF 8 October 2021

First of all, have a nice Friday… Just like I know, you all know, a weekend is a very short happening… But the only joy we have.

Today I did my workout in the morning, perfect when it’s possible, but it’s now a fact… Cardio people like mornings, the muscle builders don’t. As you can see in the picture of the day, the muscle makers is missing in the early hours and everywhere when you go to the gym in the afternoons.

Now the time is 09h45 and already 14.802 steps and 12.6 km – ok I must say. Unfortunately it’s also Friday, weight day, and after last weeks huge weight loss I expect it to go up today, hopefully not more than 50% of what I lost last week. But I have eaten to much bread this week, and cinnamon rolls at the Cinnamon roll day. So it won’t be fun to be honest.

Also today, blood tests before next weeks 6 month check up, and when I get the results, if the results not better I think I give up… Now I have lost weight, workout (408 days in a row) something must have changed in the test results.

But we will see.

And I will give the last France Covid update tomorrow, it’s time to go fram daily updates to only post if there is a huge change.

TGIF, take care

The world – Björn 1 – 0

A perfect planned day, every little step planned between 06h00 and 17h00, when…

  1. Try to use the treadmill when you suddenly have a blister under the foot. Not a nice feeling
  2. Arrive to work, notice a meeting been added since yesterday, in the middle of the hours I had to pick up the sample cup from the doctor before tomorrows tests
  3. And the already planned meeting, is a no change even if I have NOTHING to do with it
  4. Checked, thanks heaven I checked, the opening hours… Changed, they open 30 minutes earlier.. But close 3 hours earlier, so now I must either take the afternoon off or homework half day
  5. For the 6 year in a row I again forget about the Taxe habitation… How can it be a surprise every year? And how is it possible they place the due dates the Christmas present month? Why not in the spring?

Right now I actually hope for Armageddon

Björn

Same, same but different

So, cause of a meeting this evening (one I, really not need to taking part of) I needed to plan a bit different today. No gym after work, but in the morning. Actually I arrived 2 minutes before the card started to work, extra points for dedication.

All went well, and as a nice surprise my company turned out to be Sting and Mylène Farmer…

Sting and Mylène Farmer “Stolen car”

Anyway, back home, turbo shower and try to be dry (stress after shower is a fungus infection in the near future) and bike to work.

Going to work in rush hour takes some planning, another route to be a bit more guarded (meaning broad roads, not the narrow ones). But it worked out well, even if I for some reason now have missed to stop the app on my watch when I arrive home or to work. Not good cause it change the daily calorie burning. Instead of 7 km in 20 minutes, 7 km in 1 hour and 20 minutes is not the same.

But all done, workout in the morning, bike to work, and still I’m first in place. But today I have to stay longer than 16h00. I guess the morning workout will be standard when we go back to original core hours.

So, that was this mornings struggle, let us now survive the day.
