    mevre SMASH!

    today was...pretty mediocre. which i'm ok with from time to time. my legs were WICKED sore today, because i had two days of leg workouts in a row. so i decided to not work out today, in hopes that my body will fully focus on healing what needs to be healed. i don't feel too bad about not working out since it was a deliberate choice rather than justified laziness. anyway, food was great, too. i've realized that if i eat at a weird time of day, or if i have more in the morning than usual, my body has been trained to only be hungry for as many calories as it needs. which is a HUGE win in my book. oh and also, a lady from work handed out fancy chocolate to everyone today, and i was able to put mine in my purse, resist the urge to eat it all day, and give it to Tiberius when i got home! yeah self control! so two big wins. i got home from work and took a bath, then went to see Inherent Vice with Tiberius and another friend, and now i'm home, just about to get cracking on my words for the day. i hope i can do it, but i don' have very high hopes. i also wanted to get to bed early tonight and i'm starting to think it'll either be one or the other. hmmmmmm we shall see which one wins out...
  2. glad to have you with us, Bast! will be reading along and keeping tabs on your progress! [in a supportive way, not a creepy I'm-watching-you-from-the-bushes way.]
  3. i've been toying with the idea of taking belly dance classes, starting sometime next month probably, and this thread is only getting me more excited! i'm a complete novice, but it's something i've always been interested in and have always wanted to learn. i finally have the time and money [though mostly the money] to squeeze it in, so it's happening. [also Bast, if i do anything cool with my bow i'll be sure to take pictures to share with you ]
  4. was thinking along the same lines, Bast. reading about all these lovely women who are shy of dancing breaks my heart a little. but on the other hand, everyone is different, to each her own and so on. i used to be really self-conscious about dancing in front of / around Tiberius, until i realized how dorky he looks when he's dancing haha. now it doesn't bother me too much. anyway, these guys are married to you for a reason. they'll probably love you all the more if you let loose and get a little goofy with it. but it's an understandable impulse to want to hide your dancing away.

    thanks Ceasefire. man, today was a crazy, hectic, awesome day. worked from home [and did NOT eat everything in the fridge like i did last time], took a nap on my break [wish i could do this every day at work], then the sun came out for the first time in ages so Tiberius and i went on a nice long walk. after that i met up with my jogging buddy and we went for a jog [16 minutes without stopping!!!! what the what?!?! we started running in earnest a week ago today, and we were barely able to go for 10 minutes. i'm so proud of us.] got home from the run and took a glorious bath, made dinner, realized in a panic that i totally forgot about pottery class, decided not to go, and now i will write. hopefully my pottery teacher can catch me up on glazes next week... did Neila Rey's Street Fighter workout yesterday, which did not do my legs any favors. next time i need a workout the day before a run, i will not choose that one. hoooo boy. anyway, i could not have had a better day. i am so very, very pleased. oh, and bonus! i ordered a murder mystery game thing, and i think my good friend from California will fly out for a long weekend to play it with us. so much to look forward to!
  6. i'm all for using rewards as motivation, but i also am all for getting massages to give yourself a much-needed boost. 133.8 is great! seriously good job! but if the numbers aren't where you want them to be, remember that the most important thing is how healthy you are, not how skinny you are. : ] and lastly, here's this song. it's dorky as hell, but it has turned my mood and self-image around more than once. you are strong! you are invincible! you are beautiful!! super glad you're still posting despite your very busy schedule. [i seriously don't know how moms always seem to squeeze every single second out of a day] can't wait to see your continued progress! LET'S ROCK WEEK 2!!!

    alright y'all! let's see, what's been going on... i wrote the full 700 words last night, but didn't get around to it the night before. and i worked out tonight [despite roadblocks!] but did not get around to it last night. as far as food goes, last night wasn't great [simple grilled chicken sandwich thing from Red Robin] but it could have been worse. seems like there's been one day every week where i make questionable food choices. which i'm totally ok with for now - it's much better than how it was around the holidays! and you know, i've realized that sweets are my gateway food. once i start eating lots of sugar, all food priorities go out the window. anyway, it's off to Salad-Land for me tonight...yaaaaaay...
  8. yeeeeaaaaaaaah week two!!! gonna be a good one.
  9. hell yeah good grades!! woot woot! your week looks like it'll be fun! keep us posted.

    i did a simple banishing spell with him in mind this morning. because apparently the HR department needs some help on this one haha. maybe getting reported a second time will do the trick... on the one hand, it seems kind of cruel to report him for such minor things, but on the other hand, that sort of mindset is insidious and lets bad behavior fester. my first impulse was to talk it out, but seeking out contact with him could send the wrong message and make the situation even more sticky. well, last night ended up being interesting. i got into a weird mood where no food sounded appealing. Tiberius and i kept throwing around ideas but nothing sounded good until "mac and cheese" was uttered. and then that was all that i wanted. soooo i ended up eating an entire box of it. oops. i know it's not the healthiest food out there, but i'm pretty sure i stayed within my target number of calories, so i'm not too upset about it. the writing is going pretty well lately! yesterday i wrote just barely under 700 words, and the day before i wrote just barely under 600. gonna pound out a couple hundred more today to make up for the slack a bit and call it good.

    i just got back from climbing, and boy are my arms tired! ...hmm. that joke is funnier when it has to do with airplanes... anyway! i really did go climbing, and my arms really are tired. when i showed up there were only three other people there, so i pretty much had the gym to myself. however, i was not brave enough to try THE WAVE WALL OF TERROR!!! [ok, i was planning on posting a picture of it, but i can't get the file to load right. basically, the wall curves to be parallel with the floor. no thanks.] i did a couple of runs and was feeling pretty dang good about myself, and then an entire troop of Girl Scouts came trotting in haha. soooo it got real crowded real quick. and noisy. lots of giggling. at that point, i had been there for about 40 minutes, my hands were starting to hurt, and i wasn't sure how much more my arms could handle, so i headed out. $15 for less than an hour kind of sucks, but it's a once-in-a-while treat. i also learned that i should always go with a buddy. but it was nice to have some time alone, too. all in all, good arm day. on a completely unrelated note, there's a guy at work who gave me some trouble before. to be fair, i could tell he didn't do it out of malice, but i still reported his ass because that shit don't fly with me. that was a couple months ago, and since then i've been able to avoid him. until today. and now he knows where my desk is, and what my last name is, and ugh. just UGH. he's never been aggressive, and i'm sure he's completely harmless, but there's this...possessiveness? or entitlement? i dunno, something in his eyes that really leaves me unsettled. so i've been dealing with that today, sorting out my feels, etc. any of you ever deal with work-place harassment?
  16. seriously good job choosing water over wine and beer so much!! can't wait to see your grades for this week!
  17. they are actually all on Youtube! it's a pretty indie project [they funded several episodes with what they raised on Kickstarter]. and hey, shoveling snow is more of a workout than sitting around at home, right? [because i know you do so much of that, what with two little children who require nothing of you and all your copious amounts of free time ]
  18. i like how Shaarawy made this thread about giving up alcohol, and how hard it would be, and then everyone was like "did someone say alcohol?!?!" and then posts about their favorite drinks hahaha poor Shaarawy... but really, this thread always makes me thirsty for a good mixed drink. i'm glad things are going so well for you! [and way to go on not using the cheat meal!] keep up the good work, and stay warm!

    yes i am so ready to rock!!! heading out the door to go on my run right now! lol! that's the perfect gif. sucks you live so far away from a climbing gym! but on the other hand, living on a beach must be nice... anyway yes, i will let you know how it goes.

    scheduling is a brilliant idea! haha and yes, i find that my cravings are like toddlers, also.
  21. oh yes. i think you have the right idea. although, i'm at work every day at 6.30 lol so i have a hard time feeling pity for your early ferry ride. jealously, maybe, that it's early for you.
  22. hee hee hee...look at Jake, so humble. oh man Ceasefire, before i forget, do you watch Bee and Puppycat??? it's very Adventure Time-y and you'd probably really like it. if you don't already watch it... anyway, yes, strength training. i have a couple of bodyweight routines i tend to cycle through depending on my mood. i also have a weighted vest that i wear sometimes, which makes pushups and pullups extra hard. i tried to lift weights and just didn't connect to it, you know? but maybe i just wasn't doing the right moves/using the right tools...? idk. did you have a suggestion for me? or were you just curious?

    just remembered, i had a little frustrating thing at work and wondered what you guys think. i was really hungry today and my lunch was very small, so i popped into the cafeteria to get a snack. the only viable choices were yogurt parfaits [essentially sugar], little sandwiches on rolls rather than regular bread [carbs], and a cup of vegetables which were mostly celery and cucumber slices [water]. the yogurt and sandwiches would make me feel full, but the veggies were clearly the most healthy. thoughts? opinions? what would you have chosen in a situation like that?
