Enjoying The Sun!

A good few blog entries have been about walking and playing Pokémon Go. I have wound up really enjoying walking it turns out! I didn’t get to go for a walk on Saturday because I had plans, I went to a baby shower for the first time. That is a post planned for this week.

So I went today for about an hour and almost walked 3 miles! I had a good few hours at the park and it is slowly becoming my favourite place to be. It looks absolutely amazing in the sun and going out while it is a beautiful day has really lifted my moods.
I won’t lie and pretend I am magically cured but I am really enjoying having these great days, it might seem like a trivial thing to others but this has been one of the better times of my life as of late.

Yesterday while playing Pokémon Go I caught 2 new Pokemon, got enough candy to evolve another, took over 2 gyms and completed more of that field research on the quest for Mew. The next task is for me to battle in 2 gyms and a raid, I believe. Sod’s Law dictated I got the gym challenge after I’d already taken over 2. It isn’t a big deal, though. I live near enough gyms to get that done. At the time of this post, I also have 2 Pokémon in two different gyms and another that just got returned to me after being in the park’s gym for nearly 3 days!
I don’t have screenshots for that, though. It would be too easy to piece together where I live based on those gyms locations.

This week is going to be a good one. I’ve got some gaming posts in the works, that aren’t Pokémon Go. I am close to the end of Far Cry 4 and I have played a bit of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on iOS for the sake of seeing the completed version of Hidden Palace Zone in that port of the game. Not sure what order those will be uploaded but they are at a stage where I have enough notes to convert into a post and upload. I’m throwing around other post ideas for variety, topics such as things I have bought recently, products I have been using. I have also written down some WWE matches I want to revisit and write about so there will be some variety here in the near future. I feel like I’ve found my groove again.

Below is a photoset showing yesterdays walk and Pokémon Go finds.
Thank you for your time!

Getting Active!

After seeing some recent photos of myself, I felt devastated. I do not like the girl I see there. Which is awkward, I have to live with her. I have decided to dig up an old relic of a goal, get more active and lose some weight.
My weight gain has been a not so pleasant combination of meds, inactivity, erratic sleep schedules and a toxic relationship with eating my feelings.

It’s taken its toll on my body and I don’t like that. That’s enough of that dwelling, though! If I’ve learned anything as of late, its that I have the power to change for the better if I make the effort.

I attempted one of the exercise DVDs I have, I am not ready for a workout like that, yet. I almost slipped back into the old habit of giving up because it was challenging, it was a nice day, however, so I went for a long walk.

It was so nice to feel active, it was nice to feel the air blow over my body it was amazing being out in the sunshine instead of looking out at it.

Just need to invest in sun cream, don’t wanna burn.
