I am not that fan of the new version but it is still all right :)
Duolinguo is more to maintain a habit with languages I have already studied it the past (specially Dutch). So the gamish interface does not turn this into a chore to me.

Are you using anything else?
No, which is a shame because my knowledge of the languages I don't use is already decaying. :( For Polish I have some workbooks lying around that I have yet to go through, but otherwise I only plan to read books/news/articles or listen to audiobooks/podcasts in as many languages as I can, and for grammar to only focus on those few languages I actually intend to work with. I don't know how else to make languages a part of my everyday life now that I'm not a student anymore. :p

My Duolingo streak is now two years!! Would have been a lot more if it wasn’t for losing our power two years ago and me not realizing I didn’t need internet for Duo… kind of grumpy about this but it’s fine.

Went with my aunt to pick up my mom. Had trouble finding the building we needed. Had to go to my mom’s room to help her with her things. When I found her she said someone was supposed to come and take her to the car but no one had shown up yet. So I had to go tell them she was ready. We still had to wait. We had a minor scare because it started to smell like something was on fire. Then we heard a couple nurses talking about the smell and one of them said someone just turned the heater on. Heaters…

So behind but I’m not going to try to catch things up. I’ll just give a few updates.

Continued my yoga streak by doing the Yoga with Adriene 7 Minute Bedtime Yoga, my go to, with the exception of November 29. That day, I did:
♡ Kyra Pro 14 Minute Selena Gomez Walking Workout
♡ MadFit 5 Minute Lean Legs Workout
♡ Yoga for Encouragement with Adriene Mishler
♡ Daniela Suarez 7 Minute After Workout Stretch


My legs did not enjoy that workout. Turns out, focusing on yoga (actual yoga, not just bedtime yoga for the streak) was super helpful when it came to my legs.

And my yoga streak only lasted until December 1. I’m not going to go too much into things right now, but it’s been rough. I have no energy. I’m just getting back to a “normal” and even that is far below where I was.

Moving on from this conversation, I made an impulse purchase a while back (meaning I bought something I had in a cart online for a while, tried to find in stores, didn’t, and eventually broke down and bought it because it here were two other things I really wanted that I also didn’t find in stores). And this doesn’t include the three impulse purchases I made in-store (a young adult novel, a canvas that you have to paint that already has the design on it but it’s not paint by numbers, and an already done canvas that says “Here Comes the Sun” and if you don’t know why I had to have that, it’s nice to meet you! ;)) Two things were books (because I have an addiction). One of the books is a children’s book that deal with folklore surrounding nature, because I find those things interesting! Haven’t read it, but flipped through it and the artwork is gorgeous! The other one was a Disney storybook advent calendar. I have no kids in my life. I’ve never had an advent calendar before. I didn’t need one. But it’s just adorable. The books are really little and can’t have much substance (haven’t read any of those yet either) but the novelty of it appealed to me. My plan was to read a book a day (after catching up because I didn’t get it until this Tuesday) but here it is the 10th and I haven’t read a thing.

The other impulse purchase? An adjustable weighted hula hoop. I have never - never - been able to hula hoop. I’ve watched YouTube videos a few years back to try to learn. Didn’t help. And yet, here I am, trying again. I heard that weighted ones are supposed to be easier. For the record, when I finally tested it out yesterday, I only got about four rotations before it fell. Which is my usual. And I didn’t plan on recording it as a workout on my watch, because I was just testing it after all, but even that was a freaking workout. Won’t make that mistake again! And I know the more I practice the better I will be. Hopefully…

Impulse purchases can be great! I've never had an advent calendar before (unless you count the kind you put a quarter in every day?) so I definitely understand the desire!

I have a weighted hula hoop on my wish list right now! I used to be able to use one. Many, many years ago. Now? Ha. But, as you said, you'll get better with practice!

Apparently I was so tired today, I forgot to put the next load of clothes in the washer. I could have sworn I did, but took the clothes out of the dryer, open the washer, and it was empty. I just hope I wasn’t so tired that I put all of the soap in the washer and start it when it was empty…

Yoga was done by actually following the video this time!

So sad about the loss of Stephen “tWitch” Boss. Always hard to know someone who brings so much joy to so many could go through that much pain.

My goal for hula hooping is four times a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday) for 10 minutes. This is my third time with it, since I tried again on Monday, but I didn’t to it on Tuesday. This time, I took it outside. It was a little cold out and windy, so that was fun. Also the dogs went out with me. Making sure they keep their distance is a task. They’re afraid of the hula hoop, but not enough to stay away apparently. I feel like it’s staying on my waist a little more, though not much.

One good thing about recent events is that I’ve only had enough energy to read. It feels good to actually finish books quickly! Stayed up a little too late to finish We Were Liars. Didn’t expect the plot twist, but I love them. I blame R. L. Stine for that.

I’d been watching 9-1-1. I didn’t get into it when mom started watching it, because I didn’t know the characters/plot lines would be that crazy. I’m caught up on it now, after a month of binge-watching! Feels a little weird, but I’ll have more time for exercise.

So yoga and meditation was also done late, but I followed the video again.

Too tired to exercise today and ended up with a headache. Followed the video yet again.

Adjusted reading streak.

Another weird day. At least I’ve been consistent :p.

Added meditation to my non-zero days, since that is a habit I’m trying to build.

Started working on a painting (the in-store impulse purchase). This is my first time painting on canvas and so far I do not like it! Granted, I probably should have prepped it or something first, but oh well. I also need to get better quality brushes for my acrylics. My old ones are falling apart. The came off of one. Again. Thankfully I wasn’t using black paint this time, and the paint didn’t get everywhere! Just a few little speckles but nothing that can’t be easily fixed.

I felt sick after doing yoga. It was a very low-intensity workout. Not fun.

Forgot to write earlier that on Sunday, my sister brought over a bracelet she bought and had to put together. She had me to do it for her because she struggled with it and I “had more patience”. I have no patience. She knows this. It was the most aggravating thing! As soon as I got one charm on, it would fall right back off, or the little chain pieces would fall off. Finally had to put it aside.

Monday, I stabilized the bracelet on a spray bottle, which helped immensely. Got the first two charms on with relative ease (except one fell off at one point) but the third one just wasn’t cooperating. Finally got the sucker on there, though. I tested the bracelet to make sure nothing fell off. My arm hurt from trying to put the thing together. Jewelry making is not in my cards, bees.

Stepped outside with Fonzie for a second right after my shower. My hair froze! I couldn’t help laughing about it. I usually try to avoid doing this but trying to get Fonzie outside when it’s cold is difficult.

Went to give Rolo his pill, looked up, and saw an orange and pink sunrise. So pretty. I had to pause what I was doing and take a photo. Momentarily forgot how to zoom in on my phone, so I got another pretty photo I wouldn’t have gotten otherwise! Still need to work on my painting skills because it’s just sooo tempting.

Fonzie. My sweet little baby. I had just finished bringing my hamper downstairs so I could sort clothes. I look over… and he’s squatting on the couch. He left a big pee spot. Thankfully, it’s also my aunts bed, so it was covered with a sheet and I was able to grab the sheet before it soaked through. He has never done anything like that before.

I’ve had rotten luck finding seasonal teas at our usual stores, but Sunday I finally found some! I got Celestial Seasonings’ Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride and Cranberry Vanilla Wonderland. They also had the Gingerbread Spice and Sugar Plum Spice, but I just got two. Hopefully they’ll still have them next time… finally tried the Sugar Cookie today. I was pleasantly surprised, though I think I got a little too much water.

I was finally starting to feel better and wanting to chance exercising again, but got that weird lightheaded/fuzzy-headed feeling I used to get. So I’m scared to exercise it again, even though I really want to do it.

😂

Maybe the weather has Fonzie upset? If that's not it, watch him. It could be a warning sign of something worse.

You could be low on magnesium and/or iron if you're regularly getting lightheaded.

Glad you found your teas!

@JCU He doesn’t really like cold weather. Usually getting him out is a battle. He’s also a dog who likes to pee on multiple things several times. My guess is that he’d been doing quick pees, but mostly holding it and just couldn’t anymore. I’m not sure when exactly he got on the couch or what he was doing, so I couldn’t be sure. Also, since I was running around the house bringing my comforter and sheets downstairs beforehand, I probably missed signs he needed to go back out. It is a little warmer out now and what little ice/snow we got is almost completely melted, so he’s back to his usual running around the yard. We’ll see how it goes.

I haven’t had that feeling in a good while. Hopefully it’s nothing, but I’ll have to just keep an eye out.

Me, too! Now it’s just getting my lazy self to get my electric kettle out…

Christmas!

Another book finished. I’m simultaneously working on another that I’m having a little trouble getting into… I’m sure it will pick up soon. Trouble is probably partially due to being really distracted.

I can’t believe we will be in a new year in ONE. WEEK. Didn’t we just start one?

I heard the BEST resolution on Live with Kelly and Ryan today! Someone’s resolution was not to murder anyone in 2023. I may have laughed a little too hard at it. My aunt wanted to know if they murdered anyone before. I was still too busy laughing to reply. I mean, at least it’s attainable (for most people).

*I thought I completed a full round, but I think the person said you do the same on the other side and it’s a round? I don’t know. I tried to complete a “full” one as quick as I could because Fonzie’s radar went off when I was exercising.

Had a headache. I took my breakthrough meds and gave it time to work before trying to exercise. I opted for a gentler workout, but I stopped Sun Salutations early because I could tell it was going to be a little too much. After doing the YWA workout, I didn’t think I could do Moon Salutations.

Turns out it was a migraine! I didn’t get sick from it, thankfully, but it was enough that I felt out of it today. I didn’t want to get up at all. Took it easy.
