It’s been a long day…

Its been busy, but through choice, I decided to stay late and do some more walk. I find it easier to get things done, when the office is quiet and i can play a range of musics. Its helped quite a bit with the work load.

I also stumbled into a few holes which i can now attempt to fix tomorrow!

Hey ho… more work but hey…



Chafing (skin)

Chafing refers to the irritation of skin caused by repetitive friction, usually generated through skin to skin contact of multiple body parts. Chafing is usually contracted in the inner thighs and inner glutes; armpits and nipples can also develop chafing although it is less common.


Chafing can also be caused by improper or overly loose fitting clothing generating extra friction. Obesity is commonly thought to be the leading cause of thigh chafing, and in some cases losing body fat may help the issue, but the problem is just as noticeable in athletes with well developed quadriceps and people with tight bone structures. Chafing is quite prevalent among long distance athletes such as cyclists or marathon runners due to the extensive time periods during which the skin is in irritating conditions.

Chafing may be caused by the salt residue left behind after sweat evaporates. If sweat is allowed to dry, and exercise is resumed, the salt may intensify the friction and cause further irritation. Other contributing factors include hot weather, sensitive skin, sand from the beach getting into problem areas, and prior skin irritation.

Prevention and treatment[edit]

Staying dry may keep the skin from developing further chafing, although this can be next to impossible in hot weather and requires avoiding exercise. Certain products such as baby powder, potato flour or antiperspirant may help with keeping the problem areas dry. An alternative to staying dry is lubricating the skin with petroleum jelly or other lubricants in order to reduce the friction and allow the body parts to glide without forming a rash. In many cases, however, especially those involving the upper thighs, clothing is the biggest culprit. Cotton clothes should be avoided as should anything with large seams. Sports focused underwear and clothing made from polyester, nylon or spandex can largely reduce or entirely solve the issue in some cases. Problems caused by salt residue from evaporated sweat can be solved by using wet wipes to clean problem areas before resuming exercise

Thank crunchy its….

Nearly the weekend and the end of another week. I won’t lie, its not been an easy one…..

I’ve decided to write things down again, so thats a good thing…. I decided to spend less which is a good thing (but feels bad!) and its amazing to think how much money was just leaking away when I had no idea what I was doing. So, all spending is now on the Monzo card, so in app totals and logos so at a glance I can see how bad it is… And its not great.

For the weekend? Well thats ok to be fair. Shortly (in the next 10 minutes) its a walk to the pub for a drink which should be fine. Tomorrow is hair cut, tidy up etc, then parents out to lunch/tea. Then off to the americans for a sleep over (I hope) and then the rugby…..

I need to sleep…. life is always better after sleep. Fact.

Message ends.


New month – New Me?

I guess been here before, things slide, get hurt and things don’t work… so the cycle goes around and gets worse. As such, I’ve drawn a line….







So then plan now is to be better behaved and to spend less. Its about money saving first then its about walking, then its foot fixing and lastly getting back to the gym maybe….


I still find writing this stuff down helps, so will try to do more of it!
