been a good week, so far: hubby is still on winter break, we finished our LEGO bookstore, yesterday, and I graduated from PT, today. 👍
Glad to hear that it has been a good week for you RussellSue! Haven’t done anything really, just staring at screens and Books.. Depressed and climbing back again 😝. Just driven when it comes to muscle building, been also pretty angry at self for not understanding a book..

///Graduated from PT// = Oh congrats!!!!!

Hope you eat something for enough Energy to Hike? @RussellSue

I grabbed a handful of walnuts on the way out because you mentioned this. Thank you. I probably would have become very grumpy without them.

I have a hard time reading/understanding what I read, as well. I just got through a grammar module in my TEFL course, and while I did just squeak by with a low passing grade, I don't understand half of it. I need to go back and go through it, yet again, because there is not a chance in hell I could actually teach it, which is the point of the course.

The only thing that gets me through books/courses is my stubbornness. It irritates the piss out of me when I can't understand. That said, it sounds like you may be on the road to understanding your book. 👍 My unsolicited advice is to keep being annoyed until you figure it out. 😂 I'm not sure how healthy that is, but it is effective, in my experience.

May I ask what you are reading?

My leg muscles are plenty sore today, so I spent 35 minutes exercising while trying not to do anything to make them even sorer: crunches, planks, 10 minutes on the bike with 0 resistance, wobble board stuff, arm exercises, etc. I want to do at least another 15 minutes of something, but not sure what, yet.

Non grumpy Hikes are the best RussellSue.. Do you Drink water when you Hike? Never drink enough, because I need to pee often..

You could have some healthy distrust about that judgement? What if it’s only your current-today-perception of how you view information processing and teaching? Being a little suspicious about selfawareness in that very moment of time and space is helpful.. 🤪 Not sure if that makes any sense..?

Stubbornness means you definitely must stay suspicious RussellSue because you never know what tomorrow might be..

Can become obsessive if I don’t catch the essence of a Book, it’s from David Foster Wallace (The pale king) I can’t say anything more because it will always sound incoherent.

That’s a lot.. some relaxing now?
I am standing still, at least. I cannot sit for very long right now because I keep compressing my femoral nerve. I've been feeling a little hyperactive, recently, too. I am not sure what my damage is, exactly.

Do you Drink water when you Hike?
I do pretty good about drinking enough water, in general, but like you, I have to pee too often, so I never take water on hikes and try not to drink anything for about an hour ahead of time. I do most of my drinking before noon. 😂

You could have some healthy distrust about that judgement?
I got to thinking that one ought never to take study skills/learning advice from a person who has been diagnosed with Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder -- and I ought to learn to refrain from giving said advice because it is bound to be unhealthy.

I have a strong tendency to think I am failing when I am not, not getting it when I am, etc., so ignore my advice -- I will encourage you to obsess because even utterly unhealthy obsessing is healthier than my normal level of obsessing.

David Foster Wallace (The pale king)
I am bad about reading literature but I remember reading a New York Times article about a study that linked literature reading to higher levels of empathy in human beings. It made a lot of sense to me, even though I tend to be too damned high strung to sit down and read anything other than reference materials/textbooks. Not giving advice on how to increase compassion, but it sounds like you're moving that direction, naturally.

Have a great evening @Rani G2!

ran for 32 minutes...that's a little under 3 miles for me, but I didn't track mileage.
My legs were like lead pipes today, but I got through it. I'm also on day 10 of this challenge.

I did a bunch of weighted and resistance band stuff, plus I used my new ab roller, today. That was exciting. I had let my shoulders get too weak and beat up for that for some time, so I am happy to have that back in the arsenal. 👍
