Today’s alternative to my usual run

Our frisbee and ball I finally took some time to get outside, and exercise for the first time in about a week. I was going to do my usual run (it’s effective but I don’t particularly like it) when my daughter asked me to take her to the park. I was about to say “No”,…

Feeling a bit better with this song

I’ve had a rough week or two with more anxiety and depression than usual. Music tends to help my mood, and “Like Gold” by Vance Joy is one of those songs for me: https://open.spotify.com/track/3P4spaSr7co8diWOj72X9A?si=j5FElvM2S3a9F3L-upAOcw Actually, I’m really enjoying Vance Joy generally at the moment.

Why people with ADHD take medication – it often helps us function

I’ve started watching Jessica’s channel, How to ADHD. Actually, I’ve been binging a little this morning.

The music that helps get me up those hills

I started off listening to podcasts, and while this helped me get through more of my podcast backlog, listening to podcasts doesn’t really give me that extra oompf to get up…

I had gone for blood tests because I was feeling thirsty almost constantly, and I noticed that my vision was a little fuzzy. I discovered that these are two typical symptoms of Diabetes later. At…

Not sure who took who for a walk this morning

I need to be more active. My Diabetes control has been pretty non-existent this year. Thankfully, my new Fitbit gives me an easy way to measure my (lack of) progress, and I’ve started making better use of short gaps in my daily schedule to get outside more often. Home must be here somewhere … I…

Counting the steps till my Fitbit Charge 3

I’m looking forward to receiving my Fitbit Charge 3 in a week or two. I don’t do any intensive activities but I like tracking things like steps. Having an activity tracker that will help me track other metrics will give me a great view of my general health.

The lonely side of remote work

Rian linked to an interesting article about the challenges of working remotely titled “What Most Remote Companies Don’t Tell You About Remote Work”. I started reading it to get a sense of it, then sent it to my Pocket queue to read later. This is how the article begins, it will give you an idea…
