Alright, well I was hoping to avoid writing & speaking about Covid-19 for as long as I could but here we are. So basically since it’s all we hear about these days, I don’t need to go into detail about it & how life’s just constantly changing right now, since we also never know what to expect. Oh & to make matters worse, my vacation at the end of this month has been cancelled so yes I’m upset, but I understand why it was.
Ontario is pretty well shut down these days, & I have been cooped up in my condo, which isn’t too bad, other than the fact that I really don’t leave unless its for groceries… I spend pretty well all day alone & ‘P’ joins me after he’s done work (apparently construction is an essential industry, thankfully). Obviously with all the closures everything changed. I don’t have a job, I can’t work out at the gym, you name it. So I have been channeling my energy into other things & trying to just add new habits & trying to stay as healthy as I can while eating all the carbs & more!
A Few New Habits
I added a greens supplement into my diet this past weekend. I’m trying to have a mid-morning greens mixed in water, to not only add more greens to my diet but to also boost my immune system & energy levels!
I’m trying to cook & bake a little more! I’ve made some pretty bomb ass dinners lately (I’ll share those another day!). I’ve also been that person who organized all their kitchen cupboards & everything. It’s been so soothing but at the end of the day there is only so much organizing & vacuuming one can do everyday.
I also obviously had to adapt my workout routine to now be done inside my little den (aka my workout room – I wish, but that’s what I’m calling it now). I switched to an at-home routine on the Fitplann app I was doing, I haven’t stuck with it much but I’m trying. I also have been trying yoga & pilates at home, I’m just trying all these different things out to try & figure out what works! I have been making sure I get outside for a walk when I can, I’m trying for a daily 45 minutes but that all depends on weather obviously, especially since I don’t go outside when it rains!
I’ve also been reading a whole lot, unfortunately not physical books, I’ve been digitally borrowing on my iPad from my local library. Unfortunately, it’s a little tougher to read for longer so I’m taking more breaks but it happens! I’m just happy I’m still able to read & save money!
These are only a few of the little changes & habits to my daily life. I’m trying to make light of the situation & obviously stay away from others, but at the end of the day, being cooped up in under 800sq is sort of tough but there’s nothing I can do right now about that! Hopefully the weather gets warmer sooner rather than later & hopefully with all this social distancing, we can beat this sooner rather than later & get back to our regular everyday lives!
How have you been adapting? Have you made any drastic changes or developed any new habits?
Safe safe & wash your hands!
