Hadn't heard of accountable august until I saw your posts trudi. I find it inspiring though still ate pasta and pizza for dinner.  Not so stoked about the meal afterwards but it was good at the time.

Its a very well done show. S3 was definitely different to the other 2 but it was still good. Pity they got canceled cos the last 4 or 5 eps of s3 shouldve been made into a new season but it was still rather excellent. Good cast too

I actually manage to only eat a portion of chips atm bc I'm doing this accountable August thing. Three goals to hit every day - stay within calories, hit steps goal, self care.

i revised my steps goal down when I tore my tendon but kept the others the same

I've only recently started being able to leave some chips in the bag. Though I had a calorie heavy dinner tonight with ravioli in a cheese sauce, mixed greens, wine then a brownie with ice cream for dessert. It was very nice though.

Lol Lisa chips are my Achilles heel too. Chips and cheese. 

I made tacos to deal with the anxious wait between the end of my workday and the Lockdown update. Chicken and onion tacos, done 'my' way (season the chicken, then near) the end of cooking add beer and lime to make it saucy with sour cream and undressed coleslaw. Yum.

amazing what they can do these days - as it's Level 3 atm I just did my physio consult online, in a videoconference. The physio was absolutely awesome and i have a more concrete diagnosis than 'you've done something to your tendon'

Unfortunately i've probably torn my peroneal tendon and probably damaged a couple of ligaments, which is a 6-12 week rehab.

I am allowed to go without the moonboot for short burst though, so that's a win

Shaz, that happened to my hubby recently, too. He'd said he was interested in an item, had PM'd them for an address to collect, received the address in a response, was messaging back with a time that we'd be there when he got a message saying, "Sorry, it's sold". Grrr.

I'm in Auckland and had to shut down my business again on Wednesday.  Things were only just starting to get back to normal after the last lockdown (a third of my clients still hadn't returned).  Yes, it's rough, but lockdown does need to be done in order to stop the spread.  I wouldn't be surprised if we stay in lockdown (either level 3 or 4) for at least two weeks. 

Thankfully, during last lockdown I set up an online store, so I have that to keep me going, otherwise I'd be in trouble. Level 4 is a bit tougher as orders can still be processed, but cannot be couriered until we're back in level 3.  Hopefully, it doesn't come to that again, but it is what it is - we just have to deal with whatever happens. 

Last lockdown we were due to travel to Europe for a month long holiday ... That didn't happen,  we've had to cancel that entire trip.  We're due to go on a two week holiday / road trip (in NZ but outside of Auckland) in a few days time, all the accommodation was booked three weeks ago and our route planned ... I guess we'll find out later this afternoon if we have to cancel that holiday now, too!

I think you're right Trudi. Level 4 for Auckland, and Level 3 for the rest of the North Island sounds right to stop the spread.

Yes the announcement should be quite interesting. I am thankful to be in ChCh (for once) and really hope it stays in 3 for at least 1 more week as we've been frantically renovating our whole upstairs as the carpet goes in next Friday so I can move the kids up there and take their old room as my home office to start work on Monday 24th ! Fingers crossed the announcement isn't too bad for anyone ... I feel horrible for the businesses that just got back to normal too

my anxiety levels are sky high today.  I think i'll be okay once the 5.30 announcement has happened. 

I reckon it'll be AKL Level 4, rest of North Island Level 3, South Island Level 2 next week at least, but i think we're looking at 2-3 weeks in lockdown.

I don't actually mind lockdown, especially while i'm injured and can't  do much anyway, but the anxiety doesn't like not knowing.

One of my absolute favourite essential oils is ylang ylang. I find it very relaxing and it smells gorgeous -soft, subtle, warm and slightly sweet.
According to healthline, it's been shown to reduce anxiety and depression, and lower your blood pressure and heart rate.
