My current problem is that I'm naturally waking up early, with adrenaline, so I tried walking. Today I started writing to entertain myself, and my eyesight's still not great.

I think I'll try writing while I have adrenaline. So I read that adrenaline is a natural steroid or it produces the steroids, and I need to build my wrist and eye muscles, it should make perfect sense.

turns out having a pretty involved sedentary job actually makes me exercise more because i need some contrast and stress relief. i've lost a bunch of weight over the summer and am in better shape than i've been in the last 5 years probably. cool.

i made myself a "standing desk" by putting my laptop on top of an ikea storage unit and a mouse in one of the lower shelves so that one of my chronic wounds can take a break and let me tell you, my posture has never been better even if i still have this one last recalcitrant hole in my body

I saw a tip to trace the alphabet with your foot to exercise the slow twitch muscles of the ankle.

I went a little further and tried this for other highly mobile joints and it's pretty useful if there's no access to choreographed martial arts. It's not going to get my heart rate up, but it puts a bit of stress in every direction.

Also, I went for a jog and I could feel I wasn't quite strong enough at the point my chest is held up so I take it my breathing technique is still lacking.

I'm not sure what is left to say about my progress. Maybe a day or a week or forever, I will finally reach the level of comfort where I don't feel like I'm getting stabbed around the shoulder or my face. Those are still the problem areas, especially right now I'm trying to let my shoulders roll to some neutral balance position, and I start to practice smile.

quick update: Balancing my shoulder seemed easy but they're quickly getting irritated by the new posture so I'm going to take a while just to get this right. Anyways, I feel motivated to do this because my upper back circulation has been improving and holding the same shoulder posture all the time was starting to be a burden on its own.

Holidays are definitely improving my self care, aside regular exercise. I'm skiving off my friends gym membership, which is a good time for doing aerobic circuits Tongue
Otherwise, I'm relaxing a bit more.

I noticed when I went for a brief jog was I left many supporting muscles weak. This caused my chest to deflate each step and put pressure on my upper back. I've been working on understanding this, and relaxing.

Back to meditation, when I breathe deep it could be said it forces an expanding motion from stomach to neck, and without impediment it supports posture. Before I breathe out I transfer the weight to different muscles gradually relaxing them to breathe out.

Initially I was concerned about centering to maintain posture, breathing is more like movement. I thought about Tai Chi a lot while trying, it emphasizes shifting weight in circles (it's while standing) and meditative breathing, so it's too bad I didn't fully understand why it mattered until now.

My current biggest obstacle is HEAT. God this city is hot. Temperatures above 25C (77 F) are enough to lower my blood pressure and leave me useless, and today is 30C (86F)

And I am depressingly fat right now. It's like my record, with 95kg. I gained all this weight in the last semester of grad school (not sure what the terminology is), which was followed by another blow to anyone trying to keep in shape: I moved. Then the final blow: unemployment. But the weather is the worst, by far. I'm already going somewhat frequently to the gym, which is nice, but days like today I can barely move. I'll try working out in the morning, but my shitty gym has weird working hours and doesn't open all mornings.

This has been my struggle. Heat!  I started walking 3.5mi/5.6km every morning about 3 months ago.  Reduced it to 5 days a week now.  Sometimes I will walk up to 5.5mi/8.8km.

I usually walk just before sunrise and it is already 81F(27C) BEFORE sunrise, and even worse, 90+% humidity.  No No NO  My clothes are completely soaked at the end.

It's finally starting to get a little bit cooler, so i'm really looking forward walking now!

My body is pretty normal now. I just have an eye issue I can feel they are stressed out and my automatic response gradually makes them worse, so I have to concentrate on 'eye posture' whatever that may entail.

Eye posture is new to me. After a bit of googling I'm still unclear but the term definitely exists. One blog talked about how looking down (like on your phone) makes the upper eye lid weight on the eye and... I don't know, alter the shape? I'm extrapolating from a very quick googling.

Anyway, take care of your eyes. We kinda need them to make and play games Tongue

I feel a lot of muscles around my eye now. Eyebrow, something between the eyebrow, eyelid, something behind my eyeball top and bottom, there are about four sets of muscles between my lips and eyes, and the nasal cavity can open up, and there's a set of muscles on the outer edge of the eye, and it feels like a horizontal line that goes through the center of my eye. So throughout the day I slowly use the muscles now to improve the circulation, using the techniques I've been working on. There are a few muscles around the nose too and my neck and shoulders, the muscles on the side of my head don't move that much but, I might just have to see what I can do to help them all relax.
