    Teirin's standards have never been lower.....

    Saturday was too busy, which is why that one was optional. Got lots done at least. Nice greens from the market too <3 Sunday Workout - sorted, albeit without burpees. I left it too late and it would have been too loud over the neighbours. I may have also just not done it with them. Spent time on a videogame event in FFXIV (crossover with FFXV involving a sweet 4 person car mount and Noctis' outfit). Also read some Numenera stuff and started plotting out a trial one-shot to see how the system works. Minimum goals have been met. Well enough. I have to use this

    Your garden is amazing and let nobody tell you anything else.

    Yeah, fuck that noise.

    Game night so no workout as planned, but also no internet. Caught up with a friend afterwards, and possibly got very arm-wavy and enthused on several topics. Generally noting that my junk food intake plummeted as soon as I started working out again. I do wonder how exactly those are related. There are several possibilities there. Anyway, good night.

    I wish you much more sleep and good food!

    Thanks! It was a long slog, but I got there. Should be so! There was more sleep last night and that helps.

    Got the workout done. Got some chores done but not really feeling like that quite counts for doing something else before hitting the internet. Will try to read before bed.

    The point of arguing with people on the internet is as much about whoever is watching as the person you're arguing with. So less of a waste, if that helps at all. Hope you can rest tonight and the mental health day helps. Congrats on the writing!

    Thank you! Took me 14 years. Felt like they would never end. Thanks :-) I figure if I can trip over the bar, I'll likely make it. Cheers. So, I shouldn't tell you that the same store has a black on black pair? Week 0, Day 2 - Workout done! I had to downgrade the pullups and pistol squats a bit. I perhaps underestimated how out of shape I am. Everything else is ok at least. My burpee stamina must be rebuilt. Making some food and chocolate banana muffins. I'm going to try and get back to Ted Chiang's first story compilation tonight too. No guarantees. Last night did end up involving more work on the presentation. This is good. What was bad was sleep. The first night before the work week is always bad and last night was rather worse than usual. My ears had pressure from sinus fluid behind the eardrum and my ears would not pop enough to drain it, my shoulder ached all night, and I was awake every 90 min. It felt more like dozing than sleeping, but I presumably got down to deep sleep at some point. Bleh. I think I got my ears to pop enough today to sleep better tonight.

    Completed 3 sets of the workout, stretched, and foam rolled. My shoulder is less angry. Now anyway. I did add 10 burpees per set, which was an acceptable addition per the program. Other stuff: Not much yet, but I did collect some additional good resources for the presentation and set up a solarpunk page on MeWe, which seems cool so far.
  13. So, another challenge passed with me doing very little. I got a tiny bit done on a few projects but not enough. I have been letting "I'm tired, it's fine to take the night off" go on far too much and now I'm paying the consequences. Also, eating my stress. Results: shoulder pain, weight gain, and sweet fuck all done on most anything except work and basic maintenance stuff. I did pay off the last on my debt though. Now debt free for the first time since I started university in 1998! That was a big checkoff on my epic quest. The goals for this challenge are to do *literally anything but spend each evening on the internet*. Seriously low standards here. Go back to Nia Shank's Beautiful Badass workout. Sunday --> Wednesday. Saturday is bonus. I'm scheduled all day Thursday and Friday. Saturday is tight. Substitute something else if I feel like it. This worked well in the past until I made it complicated and stopped doing it. Don't make it complicated. 3 sets to start with. Pick anything to do each day before settling in to the internet: Work on Solarpunk presentation. 5 weeks left so this needs to be completed this challenge. Trip paperwork Cook something bigger than supper Work on guitar knit read actual books work on the garden work on my game Plan supplies for cabin weekend in August. (Another epic quest!)
