3rd week of birch pollen

This week that is almost gone, has really been tough. I have been so restless and all I wanted to do was going outside. So Friday evening I just had to break my strike,that day the spread of pollen had started to be a bit less so I reckoned I would just go for it. And it went fine really, was a bit exhausting in the end but to think that I haven’t been so active these past week it wasn’t so bad. 

Have also been walking on my new treadmill 5 days for 30-45 mins, well okay that’s not completely true. Was only able to do 10 mins on Monday and Tuesday. It was easier to walk when I put on a TV show. I felt the time just ran away! So now my fit bit says that I have been active 6 days as I was outside yesterday too. Hoping to get another day complete today too 🙂 

But tomorrow I will be restarting my app Transform with Chris and Heidi. Only going to use it for the workout schedule but it’s still worth the money as I have used far more money on personal online trainers before. Anyway I’m not going to push me completely, maybe I will not even be able to do the whole workout but then I will just do the rest the next day. Hopefully the pollen will be gone next week so I can enjoy the summer. 

My new workout buddy. This was the longest walk this week on it. 

Week two of birch pollen

I feel this week hasn’t been challenging at all except from sleep. Only needed to sleep one time this week during the day and then I slept for 2 hours! But other than that my sleeping has been crap, go to bed around 9 in the evening and don’t fall asleep before 1-2 it’s a few hours just wasting on trying to sleep. Today I’m really feeling the effect little sleep has on me, my eyes and my head hurts. I think I got around 5 hours sleep since I woke up at 7,will probably doze off on the couch later. 

Anyway, back to my week! I’m impressed by how much I have been able to do. I have baked 50 carrot buns, had to go to the store to pick up a shorts I had ordered which was too small eek, washed the bathroom today and even take out and in of the dishwasher! And walked here and there in my house so you can say I have walked more than 300 steps each day which is absolutely lovely. 

And on Monday I get my treadmill! Wohoo! So might try to walk some on it if I am feeling good. The pollen will get to extreme this weekend so not good to know how my body will react to that. But looking forward to being more active, would be lovely if my fit bit counts the steps I do on it then I can up my steps some more. 

Have a lovely weekend. Sending a picture of the outside world too. The tree looks like snow!
