Pulled Muscle, Popcorn + Day 2 Fitness Gaming Challenge

Day 2/30 Day Fitness Gaming Challenge

After yesterday’s successful start to the Fitness Gaming Challenge and a nice power walk, I decided to do Ring Fit Adventure today. I even set up my phone to film some of my workout to put on YouTube hence why I have a screenshot of the moment my back muscle went into spasm.

yikes…. it hurts just looking at this pic

I’d finished the warm up and headed to Armie Temple. Maybe a minute into playing, I felt a muscle pull in my back. I actually caught this on video, watching it back I wasn’t even doing anything too crazy, basically the same moves I’ve been doing. I think I may have overstretched though and that was that.

Day 2 of Fitness Gaming Challenge | Ring Fit Adventure

I panicked a bit because the pain in my left flank over the kidney area, which I get nervous about due to past kidney surgeries for nephroptosis. I went to lay down on my back almost right away and I know that was probably a bad idea. I don’t know but it didn’t seem to help.

So that was me basically out of action for the day.

I got on the sofa, E got me some comfort food, (popcorn and chocolate) that I haven’t had in ages and I watched Wonder Woman 1984. I won’t wish for her strength but it would be nice not to feel like such a crumbling old lady before I’m even 40.

So that was day 2… I hope yours was way better! 😜

  • Having a look on LinkedIn: one of the job requirements for a Junior Dev is travelling once a month. 🤣 Not going to happen.
  • There’s another job for entry level Junior Dev, requires you to be fluent in English, Spanish and German.

Last night I read The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and terrified myself before I went to sleep. Had to watch the cheesiest YouTube videos I could find to counteract it. I went to sleep with visions of the woman running round and round her room.

We just had a 40ºC heatwave. I find having anything plugged in, electronics and so on just make things warmer. I lose my train of thought when it’s very warm.

One episode left to catchup on Pretty Little Liars. These last few episodes have been great.

On This Day 2015

I read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 2003 but can’t remember much. So I’m restarting and am basically a noob to the series, I’m that early on in the story that Harry hasn’t even left for Hogwarts yet. 😂

Here are my stats from 3 days of playing the Cognito brain training app – at least I’m speedy haha!
