Runs for Cookies: August Objectives

At this time wasn’t fairly as busy as yesterday as a result of I did not have a lot that might be accomplished with my bed room. Brian (my older brother) is busy engaged on his personal project–building a shed–so he can not help me till he is accomplished with that. He gave me express directions to not get overzealous and begin tearing stuff aside.

You haven’t any concept how onerous that’s for me. Particularly as somebody with bipolar dysfunction who’s going by way of a hypomanic section!

This morning, I cried for slightly bit. It is sort of unhappy mendacity on my mattress which is on the subfloor of my bed room, which has an enormous gap within the wall and ground simply ready for critters to return in and provides me rabies whereas I am sleeping. (I blocked it off as greatest as I might for the cats, but when one thing wished to get in right here, it is undoubtedly attainable.

Anyway, with tomorrow being a brand new month (and the final full month of summer season) I believed I would checklist a couple of targets to work on. Not a “problem”, essentially, however one thing to maintain my centered throughout a time the place it’s extremely onerous to focus (hypomania).

So, right here goes:

1) That is no shock, however I NEED to drink extra water. I am uninterested in waking up with a mouth so dry I can barely discuss. A number of years in the past, I might drink a complete liter of water earlier than I even bought off the bed. I stored it on my bedside desk and gulped it down. Then I would drink three extra liters all through the day. And I at all times felt nice! So I’ll purpose to do this again–starting with ingesting a liter as quickly as I get up.

2) Begin operating once more. That is getting actually ridiculous–I have never been operating in months! The break solely began due to my knee damage, however that hasn’t been giving me any issues anymore. The truth is, since changing into vegan, my physique truly feels fairly rattling good.

3) Spend extra time exterior. Yearly, I inform myself that I’ll take full benefit of summer season by sitting exterior on the deck. Jerry and I used to do this on a regular basis. We would every have a glass of wine or a beer within the evenings and benefit from the heat climate. Although I do not drink anymore, I can nonetheless have my Heineken 0.0 or simply some tea or one thing. The entire level is to spend time exterior.

4) Work on maintaining the landscaping. We have not planted something but and we aren’t going to till subsequent 12 months (I need to hold the entire mattress of mulch weed-free and prepped for planting). Each time I stroll by, if I see a weed beginning to develop, I pull it out. I am beginning to see increasingly more of them, so I need to make it a degree at the very least each few days to tug out all of the weeds I can see.

5) I am simply going to finish with this one as a result of this objective going to take up 99% of my time–finish this mess of my bed room! I’ve to tear every thing out of the grasp bathroom–including slicing up the bathe to get it out (it is one piece and too large to take away)–and take away the flooring. As soon as every thing is eliminated, I’ve to chop out the water broken items of subfloor and exchange it. As soon as all that’s accomplished, I’ve to degree the flooring with a liquid leveler. Then put plywood on prime of that. Then set up the posh vinyl planking.

That is only the start! That is simply getting it again to “livable”. Aside from all of that, we’ve to put in a brand new bathe (this time within the reverse nook). I am going to have to put in all new drywall (kill me now–I hate drywalling!!), sand the heck out of it, then prime and paint. I have never selected a colour scheme, however since we’ve to transform all these items, we would as nicely change issues up slightly. In order that half can be enjoyable!

Anyway, nothing tremendous new for August targets, however hopefully writing them down will truly assist me do them. Aside from fixing the bed room, I actually need to deal with getting again to operating. I believe I am going to return to the great previous 3-3-3 plan (run three miles, three days every week, for 3 months)–without specializing in something aside from these three numbers. No fear of tempo, coronary heart charge, and so on. I am going to most likely do quite a lot of the runs on the treadmill, and that is effective with me. It has been within the 90s right here currently and that’s simply too sizzling to run exterior (for me anyway)!

Effectively, Jerry simply bought again with Joey after Joey’s very lengthy trip. So I’ll go spend a while with them 🙂
