With all this free time to not be climbing, what have you all been up to? How are you staying fit? How are you staying psyched? Has the lack of climbing access made you more or less motivated to train? Any new hobbies? What have you been cooking? How are you entertaining yourself? Let me know, keep me entertained, and have a wonderful day.

On Conference calls 14 hours per day.  Taking very short walks between calls.  documenting my "work from home" experience with a new photo each day.  Weight lifting outdoors every other day.  hanging off the I Beam in my basement. eating way too much, prepping way too much food, watching too much TV.

Hung the hang board I got for Christmas two or maybe three years ago. Cooked so much lately. Tomorrow is Italian Wedding Soup with both meatless and meatballs. Fun with my son. Lots of uno, sorry and Yahtzee. Tiger King on Netflix. Made enemies on MP. You know, the usual.

I like the photo idea! I've been journaling each night before bed--I figure it will at least be interesting to read when this is all over.

To the OP, I've flirted with various hobbies/activities to fill my new spare time (reading, advanced yoga pose progressions, practicing systems on the ground, playing cards, training) but haven't made much progress on any of them yet. I'm trying to cultivate better habits/scheduling strategies...it's a work in progress, but I do think I'm making some incremental progress.

I've been journaling and writing too! History is in the making. 

I've been building anchors all throughout my house and have been spending a lot of quality time with my pets! Yoga is fun when your cat and dog do it with you

Hangboarding lots, cleaning my man space to put a 8x8 climbing wall up. Treadmilling. Geting my reloading bench set up again after moving 3 years ago. Still working but staying home on the weekends. Self love. Lots of self love. Probably too much self love.

Trolling.
Running half-marathons around my 'hood while thinking about trolling.
Starting at the distant Sierras rising majestically over fields of the Central Valley, California's breadbasket, the grass emerald green with the full fervor of Spring... then going inside and trolling.
Baking cookies, bread.

I have been dismantling old smoke detectors in the basement. By the time we are free to move about I should have enough Americium241 to build a small thermo nuclear device.
