Journal Entry – 015

Went out for a bike ride at 11 AM. Temp was 85F, so it was a little hot. I was worried that I would struggle, but I managed it. The key was not to push myself, especially when my heart rate was getting high. I did have a hard time breathing through my nose. I should have used my nasal spray before the ride.

We got my mom a Roku as her birthday gift. We bought it at Best Buy. We walked in with Davin and thankfully avoided the toy section. Anyway the Roku app itself is pretty good. It is fast and responsive. The UI is pleasing to look at. It also has Netflix, which works really well; it doesn't slow down like it usually does on our Blu-ray player.

Got up to 21 knee-assisted push-ups in the morning. I also seem to be improving on my pull-ups. The first 2 that I did, I managed to get all the way to the top of the bar. Yes I'm pretty bad with pull-ups. I could barely do one before. I just gotta keep working on it.

Ended up having a root canal done on the tooth with the temporary crown. It actually did not hurt at all, the root canal procedure that is. A filling would most likely hurt more than a root canal. The tiring thing about the root canal procedure is when they have the rubber mask/protector on your mouth, it makes it hard to swallow saliva then. I'm really hoping the toothache will go away after this root canal.

Almost done reading the book “The Five People You Meet in Heaven.” I got a little emotional when I found out who was holding Eddie's hands at the end. I'm a little embarrassed to say that I got teary-eyed when I read that part of the book. What a great book!

Woke up without toothache. Maybe the root canal really did work!

The comments section for Goodreads reviews are toxic. It is full of people trying to justify their ratings and telling other reviewers why their ratings are wrong. It is a waste of time. You are better off just reading another book.

For some reason Davin wanted to be carried the whole time today. Had to carry him into the car after picking him up from the babysitter. Then had to carry him into the house when we got home. Then also had to carry him just to get milk from the fridge.

Davin was making a fuss because he wanted to use the iPad, but it needed to be charged. I told him I'd read him a book instead, it worked.

I am slacking off on logging the food that I eat. Dedicating a separate page on my bullet journal for it won't work. I've already tried that and didn't like that it was competing against the daily log pages. I initially started recording the food that I ate as part of the daily log entries, but for some reason I stopped doing that. I either need to start logging it again as part of the daily log, or I need another strategy for logging it.

Davin is extra hungry tonight. He's been asking for milk, yogurt and now bread. He's eating bread at 11:30 PM.
