Iím blanching heaps of veg ready for freezing - the excitement knows no bounds here!

Netflix, playing a few PC games, fixing things round the house, watching old TV, chatting to old friends on Facebook.

Normal sort of day for me with or without Covid19.

Iíve barely left the house since Monday and starting to get concerned about my lack of excercise. On a day to day basis I average 15k steps a day via walking and gym.

Iím wanting to start going outside for lunchtime walks but obviously donít want to endanger anyone so thinking of going to Battersea Park and back during the week. But what is the best way to replicate what Iím doing in the gym, weights etc. Obviously press ups and stomach crunches/sit ups are good but does anyone have any advise? Ideally Iíd like to have a routine I can get into to help aid the mental side of it.

I donít want to get into the habit of just watching tv and playing Football Manager the whole time! Weíve been keeping off the booze until the weekends to give us something to look forward to.

Waiting to hear from local charities as weíve also offered ourselves up to volunteering to help people During this time.

I'm trying to keep to routine, but in truth working from home can help get me out the lazy far bastards life I've had since fucking up my knee.

the elliptical is right in the next room. I have no commute. replace commute with  elliptical - eventually anyway, not up to it yet.

but need to get out house and walk around a bit.

Just been out for a walk, through Kembrey Park then along the footpath by BMW and back again.
Not the most exciting of urban walks but itís quiet with a few cyclists and dog walkers and someone even said good morning.  Smiley
Need to try and do this on a daily basis while it's still allowed.

Could do with catching up on ripping some CDís and can multi task with that as well, or might just sit and watch the progress bar.

Iím used to working from home so this isnít far from the norm anyway (going to gigs and football etc aside). With free weekends can spread the working week out a bit as well.

Will look in on distant friends via email. Old school!

Have a look on YouTube for plyometric exercises. There are 100s for all parts of the body and generally you can do them with either just your body weight or basic equipment like a step or box.
That said, havenít followed my own advice at all. Canít find the motivation but it will be important to stay as physically and mentally healthy as possible.

Had a lie in left the house at 9.30am to pop to Sainsbury's . I only needed some friut and veg and a few odds but i knew if i didn't get their early, i had no chance. I was pleasantly surprised to see so many people being so courteous well behaved. Shelves were still being stocked by staff but there was no pushing or shoving which was nice to see.

Letting some of my cows and calves out for the summer now that the weather is improving. Usually chat to some people who live close to the fields I use but nobody about this morning,message seems to be getting through. Also re watching episodes of Inspector Montalbano and looking longingly at the last two slices of bread, should at least lose some weight

I'm doing pretty much what I always do. A spot of gaming now and I'll be playing with my boy a bit later.

Tomorrow - back to work. Which also means that I will be doing what I usually do. Hoping for some MDMA relief next weekend, I'm not sure about the logistics of that yet, though.

Golf this morning (whilst I still can) - only 7 of us played which is normal & kept a goodly distance away from each other.
Was planning to antifoul the boat this pm but have decided to wait and see whether total lockdown occurs - it's bloody expensive paint !
Scrabble this evening, Mrs Scillyred (BA Hons) has challenged me (Oxford Poly Diploma) to a summer tournament !
Currently 2-2 as I managed a couple of lucky 7 letter words - bon't feel it is not going to end well for me  Sad
