its been a while and fingers to the keyboard…

Looking at some of the posts, sometimes there is a long gap other times, a short gap, sometimes even and absence. And truth be told, I use the blog to clear my head, vent, dump out ideas, or just to think.

Here and now, head is a bit swimming about the place, but thats more to do with everything going on. I am having a busy week which is kind of unusual as it ticks overs, but a deadline looms etc etc

But in fairness i work better to deadlines and when things need to get done so thats not all bad in fairness. Its just come at a time, when as ever a cold has struck which slows me down. Thats possibly the most annoying part of it.

I guess as ever, also annoying is that I’ve been ok for ages, but then when pay for the next set of gym outings thats when the cold hits, enough to slow me down which is not fun as it does cost £99 quid for 6 weeks, and of course holiday to Spain will eat one of those weeks up.

Which then leads is nicely into the gym sessions… so of late bar some shocking attendances int he last program, I’ve consistently gone for 3 or 4 sessions to work through some of the many issues I’ve got. But, over time the purpose changed. for example, going to gym and working hard, allowed bad habits in food and drink to continue which isn’t the plan.

This then leads us on to the next part, which is that, as it stands now, or sits now ;-p I am about as big as I’ve ever been and that to be fair needs to stop before it becomes too unhealthy. So back on it with a vengeance.  An example, myfitnesspal counts the calories and today is less than 1200 in vs a target for 1kg a week and with exercise allowance leaves me 1400 to play with. The biggest non-suprise in this, I don’t feel hungry. my body is not concerned. This dear reader gvies an indication to the level over eating. And, thinking out loud, there was a foul today, no lunch time walk as work load got in the way.

Walking1000miles.com still shows my progress, and to be fair, am there or there abouts which doesn’t surprise me. Eva is kicking ass and well played to her in all fairness. But nice weather, feeling better, more energy, I will be back on it.

 

Next up, the boiler has decided its finally had enough. Whenever its been iffy and I’ve rang a plumber and gone ” I’ve got an ideal Isar” they reply with either ” and the control board has gone” or “oh dear” which gives an indication about how poor its been. To be fair it was fitted to the property when i moved in so i cant overally object. A replacement is needed along with some new pipes for gas… so if you’ve got a spare 2k floating around…please….

please….

As ever, bank of dad may be needed for this one.

And perhaps enough writing for now, but coming up is a holiday and perhaps its nice to have a rest. Here’s hoping its a nice as it looks online, but you never know… and hopefully the 5 or so hours to get there are not as bad as it can be. 5 hours is about when i start to get a little fed up and bad tempered. But what you gonna do? its just a means to an end and then a nice pool, some sunshine and tan through shorts will all be that I need.

Enough from me for now.

 

Cheers

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)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chafing (skin)

Chafing of skin
Classification and external resources
ICD10 Xxx.x
ICD9-CM xxx

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.

Causes[edit]

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.
