Took me a while to get registration right, but I finally managed, and now I can fill in from before.

September 21 was my 1306th day of consecutive exercise in one form or another, even if it was only token workout stuff before bed. On Sept. 21st I did 18 minutes/3.12 miles, 9 minutes/1.59 miles, and 7 minutes/1.12 miles on my bike. That makes it day 2 that week for the COVID longitudinal survey I'm enrolled in- for reference, the survey is part of a study done through the Eureka citizen science app, from the University of California San Francisco. I was recruited into the study during the earlier days of the pandemic because the Bone Marrow Registry people had my name and HLA types, and apparently I matched some profile that they wanted data about. The Eureka people asked me if I would fill out surveys for Eureka on a regular basis about my medications, vaccinations, behavior, mental state, etc. When I mention 'the COVID survey' it's not because I have ever had COVID, to my knowledge; the study was, and currently still is, as much about people who don't get it as people who do. If I ever had it, I didn't recognize it as being worth a diagnosis at the time. I've taken several nasal home tests on days when I didn't feel well or when I had to travel, and I never had a positive result. Mostly if I mention the COVID survey here, it's because once a week, they ask me how many days I have exercised for at least twenty minutes at a level that caused me to breathe hard or sweat. So... September 21st was day 2 for the COVID survey for the week. It was also day 87 of consecutive flossing. I know this is more than the flossing challenge here at Darebee actually tracks, but if I have to keep up a streak here, I'm more likely to keep doing it than if I'm just doing it because the dentist said to.
September 22, day 1307. 11 minutes/1.83 miles, 7 minutes/0.94 miles, 6 minutes/0.87 miles, and 11 minutes/1.78 miles. That's day 3 for the COVID survey for the week. Day 88 consecutive flossing.

September 23, day 1308. 100 punches before bed. Day 89 flossing.
September 24, day 1309. 3 sets 15 wall pushups. Day 90 flossing.
September 25, day 1310. Wanted to bicycle, but found that a headache that flares when you stand up from a seated position, or when you bend forward, is not conducive to that activity. 150 punches before bed; day 91 flossing.

September 26, day 1311.
Classic warm-up, more or less
Cultivator workout. 15 lbs per hand for everything except the lat raises, that's 10 lbs per hand. Used Arnold presses instead of standard shoulder presses, as my right shoulder clicks a lot less during the Arnold press motion than a standard shoulder press motion. Level 1- just 3 sets- but it was 10:51 worth of post-warmup sweat/heavy breathing. Hopefully I can get in some bike time later today, I will update for that and flossing.
ETA: 6 minutes/0.94 miles, 7 minutes/1.19 miles, 6 minutes/0.84 miles on the bike. Day 1 for the COVID survey this week. Day92 consecutive flossing.

ETA:

Sept. 30, day 1315.
Classic warm-up, or something like it (I added a few things, nothing fancy)
Modded Epic Arms. 5x(20 alt bicep curls, 40 punches), plus another 20+40 pair because I forgot to turn on my timer.
Day 1 of Better Legs challenge
Day 1 of Core Control challenge

this totals out to around 8 minutes of timed sweating/hard breathing workout for the day, so it does not count for the survey yet, but I hope to get on my bike after work and proceed from there. Will edit for that and for flossing.

ETA: did not bike so no survey update, but day 96 consecutive flossing, that's something.

Oct. 6. Day 1321. Better Legs day 5, Core Control day 7, more than 20 minutes of bicycling which I will fill in later, day 102 consecutive flossing.

EDIT: Okay, I fell asleep within minutes of last night's post, so the bike time yesterday:

7 minutes/0.97 miles
5 minutes/0.88 miles
7 minutes/1 mile
7 minutes/0.85 miles
11 minutes/1.82 miles

So that's... well, it's enough for the COVID survey, so it's day 2 for the week for that.

Oct. 14. Day 1329. Day 11 Core Control (40 torso twists). Day 109 consecutive flossing.
Oct. 15. Day 1330. Day 12 Core Control (110 side leg raises). Day 110 consecutive flossing.
Oct. 16. Day 1331. Day 13 Core Control (40 torso twists), added 10 torso twists just because. Decided that each time the news media or my own biochemistry leaves me emotionally exhausted or despairing, I would do one floor pushup or five wall pushups. I did 20 wall pushups total. Day 111 consecutive flossing.
Oct. 17. Day 1332. So far today, 60 torso twists and five wall pushups. There will be more exercise later today, also flossing, I will edit then.
ETA 1: ten wall pushups total, the previous five plus five more
ETA: also five floor pushups (no room on the wall for the moment)
ETA 3: today had a total of twenty wall pushups and five floor pushups. Also it was day 112 of consecutive flossing.

October 18. Day 1333. So far:

1.48 miles/10 minutes, 0.8 miles/6 minutes, this was very cautious riding because my seat was coming loose and I had no tool to fix it before getting to work
0.67 miles/5ish minutes, then 1.1 miles in ... maybe 9 or 10 minutes? Wasn't really timing it; this was on a rental bike with nowhere to strap my phone and turn on the cyclocomp software
1 mile/10 minutes, also a rental bike but I was more careful this time

There will be more later but I wanted that down to begin with

Edit 1: I read a political news story. Five floor pushups
Edit 2: total of ten floor pushups for the day. Also, 0.98 miles/7 minutes and 1.44 miles/10 minutes. So that's day 1 for the COVID survey.

And day 113 consecutive flossing.

Oct. 20, day 1335. 10 minutes/1.52 miles, 7 minutes/0.99 miles, 8 minutes/1.04 miles, 7 minutes/0.90 miles, 6 minutes/0.85 miles, 12 minutes/1.84 miles, day 2 for the COVID survey, 15 wall pushups, day 115 consecutive flossing.

Oct. 21, day 1336. Proper exercise will follow later and I'll edit this post to reflect that, but I had a multiple personal biochemistry moments this morning and had to do five ten fifteen twenty thirty-five floor pushups as a result. Strong probability of more. We'll see.

... I opted for five floor pushups per incident instead of one, for what that's worth, I'm not that badly mood-swingy today.

ETA: 110 torso twists, and day 116 consecutive flossing

Oct. 22, day 1337. 5 minutes/0.83 miles, 7 minutes/1.34 miles, 11 minutes/1.69 miles on the bike. Day 1 for the COVID survey for the week. I'd meant it to be an extended single stretch of bike riding, or two - one out, one back- but I ride with binoculars more often than not and when you hear the SCREECH of feral parakeets in Massachusetts you kind of have to stop and look for the little green bastards. Day 117 consecutive flossing.

Oct. 23, day 1338. 120 torso twists before bed. Day 118 consecutive flossing.
Oct. 24, day 1339. 125 torso twists, 10 push-ups. Day 119 consecutive flossing.
Oct. 25, day 1340. So far, 12 minutes/1.84 miles and 7 minutes/0.94 miles. Further bulletins as events warrant.
EDIT: I had to scramble like nobody's business to get to the ferry home yesterday, so I didn't time myself for part of the ride, but it was 0.85 miles. After the ferry the ride home was 10 minutes/1.42 miles. So that's day 2 for the COVID survey for the week. Also there were fifteen wall pushups and day 120 consecutive flossing.

October 26, day 1341.
150 torso twists
Modded Epic Arms (20 curls and 40 punches instead of 10 and 20), 15 lbs per hand
Eye of the Tiger workout, level 1, but with EC
Five floor pushups so far

I'm sweating, but I haven't been timing myself. I don't know if I hit 20 or not so I'm not counting this for the COVID survey. Will edit later for any further pushups and for flossing. ETA: 15 wall pushups, day 122 consecutive flossing

November 1. Day 1347. So far:
9 minutes/1.36 miles, 3 minutes/0.45 miles, 18 minutes/2.96 miles. (We are at day 3 for the week for the COVID survey so far.)
Five pushups so far.
EDIT: total of fifteen pushups (five floor, ten wall) for the day, plus 11 minutes/1.8 miles more. The ferry I have been taking to work on days when I have to work in the office had a breakdown, and no email was sent to me until after I got to the ferry dock and saw the closed gates- the distances reflect 'rode to the cafe just down the road from the ferry, rode to the ferry, rode BACK from the ferry to the T, and in the afternoon rode home from the T'. As for the pushups I was in a phenomenally bad mood yesterday all around. Day 128 flossing.

November 2. Day 1348.

Classic warm up
Peach workout. 3 sets of everything. 15 reps of everything that was marked 10 reps. This came out to 13 minutes 38 seconds of sweaty exercise so far today. ETA: that was it for the day, but I did add day 129 flossing.

November 3. Day 1349. My ferry remains out of commission so my choices were take the bus to the T and take the T to work, ride my bike to the T and take the T to work, or what I actually did, which is ride my bike 31 minutes and 5.37 miles to get to a water taxi pickup point and take the water taxi to work instead. The T is just too crowded at this point for me to feel safe. I will update alter with the rest of my riding and with flossing info, but at least I'm on day 4 for the COVID survey this week.
Also, so far today, ten wall pushups.
EDIT: Also 4 minutes/0.43 miles, then 23 minutes/4.29 miles.
Also five more wall pushups.
Also day 130 flossing.

November 4. Day 1350. Did not feel well at all- sinus pain, sinus congestion, post-nasal drip. But no fever and a nasal swab said no COVID, and anyway the whole constellation of malaise was the same stuff I've been getting at this time of year since at least college, so I started myself on store-brand acetaminophen/antihistamine/decongestant blend tablets and was grateful to work from home. Fifteen wall pushups, 100 punches before bed, day 131 flossing.
November 5. Day 1351. Canceled my firearms safety class and took the day to spend at home while the coughing issues continued. Twenty wall pushups, 100 punches before bed, day 132 flossing.
November 6. Day 1352. Emotional state all over the place, mostly personal, some news-related, so 25 wall pushups and 100 punches before bed. Day 133 flossing.
Have not started exercising today but a post on Reddit with the subject line "you matter, you are enough" and the text "you belong in the world today" has sent me into tears twice now, so that's gonna be ten pushups when I get around to it. I hate my endocrine system sometimes.

November 7. Day 1353. Official exercise to come later but so far my five-pushups-per-emotional-exhaustion-despair-or-borderline-hysterical-sobbing incident policy has resulted in a total of thirty-five forty forty-five fifty-five pushups.

EDIT: By the end of the day it was a total of either sixty-five or seventy pushups, ten or fifteen of which were wall pushups. I opted to assume that that counted for my daily official exercise.

Also day 134 flossing.

Anyway.
Nov. 8. Day 1354. Ten pushups. Fifty torso twists before bed. Day 135 flossing.
Nov. 9. Day 1355. So far, five pushups. Will edit later for more, and for whatever other exercise I do and for flossing. ETA: no further pushups, but I walked two miles, and I did fifty torso twists before bed. Day 136 consecutive flossing.

Nov. 14. Day 1360. EDIT: I missed entering a day; there were 10 wall pushups and 40 torso twists on the 14th. Day 141 consecutive flossing.
Nov. 15. Day 1361. 15 wall pushups, 40 torso twists. Day 142 consecutive flossing. This was a work-in-the-office day but I do not count my walk distance to the bus stop or from the T station to the office in my exercise; it would happen whether or not I intended to exercise that day.

Nov. 26. Day 1372. About half an hour of riding a bike. This does not count towards COVID survey data because the bike time was spent riding at a pace that kept up with my eleven-year-old nibling who was riding a hoverboard; mostly this counted as extended balance exercise for me with a little bit of leg effort. There was some walking and other bike riding before that, too, but I didn't time it. Skipped flossing because I had run out of my regular floss and the only stuff I had on hand was unwaxed (I buy this for use in cutting soft, round dough products) and I'd used the unwaxed the night before and ye gods it was nasty between my teeth.
Nov. 27. Day 1373. 45 pushups. 100 punches. Day 1 flossing again.
Nov. 28. Day 1374. 100 punches before bed. Day 2 flossing.
Nov. 29. Fifteen wall pushups. Day 3 flossing.
