  1. Wednesday September 15: - Workout: Yes. - 150g protein: Yes. - 2300cal max: 2032 cal. - Sleep 7-8h: Yes. - Cold shower: Yes (was only like 20 seconds but w/e. Temptation to have booze was really freaking high last night because I crushed all my goals and the "I've earned it!" feeling was pretty strong. But alcohol tends to result in me playing video games until the early AM hours, and tomorrow-me would have been fucking pissed at only getting 4 or 5h of sleep after having gotten >7h for the three previous days. Now I get to do the same thing tonight
  2. Monday Sept 13: - Workout: Yes. - 150g of protein: Yes. - 2300cal max: 2344 cal. Oooop. - Sleep 7-8h: No (Sunday-Monday overnight) - Cold shower: Yes. Tuesday Sept 14: - Workout: Yes (not my assigned workout, but still worked out). - 150g of protein: Yes. - 2300cal max: 2249 cal. - Sleep 7-8h: Yes. - Cold shower: No. Both days involved zero alcohol \o/ I think I lost one pound already, even though it's only been two days. If I add up the additional red wine calories and also the calories from additional drunken snacking
  3. A challenge thread to go with the "Sober(ish) September" theme I've got going in the NF Prime Facebook group, because extra accountability can't hurt. I'll mainly be copy/pasting the logs I post on the FB page in here for the sake of efficiency. Also, because I noticed I've fucking gained 10 pounds over the summer, the following goals have been added, in addition to the whole "don't have alcohol except on Saturdays" goal: - Workout (6x/week) - 150g of protein - 2300cal max - Sleep 7-8h - Cold shower I know this seems like a lot, but all t
  4. Oooop. I have not touched the boxes again last night. The afternoon/evening went something like: get home from work, go vote (municipal election), work out, eat, go to pole class/second workout, walk dog, eat again...OH LOOK IT'S 10:30 😐 At least some success was had fitness-wise because I stuck to my calorie total, worked out, and didn't reach for the wine. Tonight will probably be similar, except I'll get home 30 min sooner. There will be a 45 min gap between getting home and class #1, though, so I can hopefully use that time to fetch boxes from the workshop and stuff things in t
  5. Haha, that definitely sounds like our garage/shed also. Or at least it will in the not-far-future, because mom has a property in another province that she might sell, and there are two additional garages with clutter and extra/duplicate tools in them. I'll try to not think about that until it's time to deal with it. It will be like an expansion to the Decluttering MMO and, like most expansions, it will (hopefully) run into development delays 😅 It is...going-ish. I'm glad last week was week zero because I haven't done shit. Apparently putting things in boxes is too hard? But then
  6. I just noticed the part about consistency this challenge, and have no clue how to fit consistency into decluttering. I have learned in last challenge that telling myself "I am someone who declutters for at least 10 minutes every day" is a goddamn lie. Maybe if the list is less long and less overwhelming, I won't just bury my head in the sand instead of completing the tasks on said list. Let's see... Level 1: The Bedroom. - Bag and board stray comic books. They're not even stray comic books anymore. They are SITTING ON TOP OF THE COMIC BOX that they need to g
  7. Hi everyone! Remember me? If not, don't feel bad because I kind of dropped off the face of the forums for the last 3 weeks of the previous challenge. But I am trying again, with the same goal...and more! I'll break apart the decluttering into separate levels, or zones, or whatever. It's kind of like an MMO where you stick to certain areas that are appropriate for your character's level range. Like in an MMO, the player can venture into higher level areas, but the player can also get killed more easily in said areas. Low level: Level 1 - The Bedroom: the star
  8. Not really 😅 The comic box is still next to my bed, empty, with the bags and boards and comics on top of it. This has been the case for a while. All I do is just...stare at it? I attempted to continue the decluttering a few hours ago, but ended up only moving things from one area to another area. I thought I could make some progress today considering that ALL my plans were unexpectedly cancelled and I had a nice, long, free day in front of me. But then mom decided we have to take the dog for a looooong walk (2h), followed by a long-ass list of things to do. Some of these tasks were
  9. Nice! Anime North is also on my to-go list...when cons happen again and I can actually manage to get a pass and a hotel for it, anyway. Mainly because the timing of it makes it the only convention where my Air Miles aren't on a fucking blackout date, lol. I can totally relate about cons not having the same feel anymore, though. I can (probably) still find a group of friends to go with, but most of the groups I've gone with in the past seem to be drifting apart. I could be wrong, though. The main problem is that the level at which I don't have my shit together makes it impossible fo
  10. Hmm. Good point. One thing I hate more than clothes sorting is clothes shopping, so it's probably better to err on the side of less aggravation. Who knows, I may eventually make a "Nax attempts to look presentable" challenge in the future, once the decluttering is done. (Looking like an alien is okay, but only at cons 😜) The FanExpo shirt was from the one in Toronto, in 2016. (I think it was Canada FanExpo? Because there is also apparently a Toronto FanExpo. In any case, it was the one that usually takes place before Labor Day weekend.) Which FanExpo are you close to? A
  11. Tuesday March 30, 2021: I unexpectedly had a free evening due to all my commitments being cancelled at the last minute. This is the best feeling. I managed to sort through one small pile of clothes into a "keep" and "give away" pile. The "keep" pile still has too many things I might not wear, though. The clothes fit and look good, but I've just been too exhausted to give a shit about what I wear these days. I want people to look at me and be like "damn, he looks good" but when people look at me I get anxiety, so I always opt for the most basic of clothes so that I don't stand out,
  12. Aaahh, gotcha. I understand what you mean, and will probably settle for the neutral/indifferent stage at first. Very few things make me happy these days, but having floor space (ie, the absence of things) may actually do it, so that can't hurt. In any case, I'll be trashing anything that makes me angry lol. I most likely will pick up the Marie Kondo book, especially if it's a fast read. Not sure how I feel about thanking the things, but I'll wait until I read the book before forming an opinion. I just know that the "do it all in one go" part won't happen because I can't take a whol
  13. Thanks for confirming that the images are now showing! I will forward all positive comments to my cat. I suppose I should read the full book then, instead if a highly summarized version that I found on the Internet (But if I am reading I am not decluttering and aaahhhhh!) General update: All I did yesterday was bring the bag of costume items to my friend so she could look through it and pick out any items she might be able to use. She ended up taking all of its contents off my hands. Great! Other than that, I stacked the boxes
  14. Haven't had the desire to deal with the pictures in the past 2 days because I've been feeling the blahs mentally. Saving and re-uploading is too many steps and ugh. I used to be good at shit like this years ago, but now I can't hold on to a thought for more than 4 to 6 seconds before it disappears or gets replaced by another thought, which then also disappears or gets replaced by another thought, etc. It's just depressing as hell when I remember what my brain used to be able to do and compare that to the stupid lump of fuck inside my skull right now. Also feeling the blahs due to the fact that
  15. Argh. Well that is a problem that needs fixing then. Using this post and a picture of my Pacman frog to test. (Edit: it worked when I used the attach button, but I removed it because the pic is way too big. Still working on it.) https://photos.app.goo.gl/hy3EayR4wi1h5DwT6 Does this work at all? I tried the Embed from URL button but it just goes red when I paste the URL into it and try to insert into post. Google Photos won't add the file extension 😕 Ugh. I hope I don't have to save and re-size all the pics on my computer. Or Save and re-upload t
