  1. You're an artist. You're an independent contractor, currently focusing on self-development and rebranding.
  2. I don't think I have the kids' workouts; I bought the system years & years ago, & I lost my first disc somewhere & bought a replacement last year or the year before. That's a great suggestion, though, and I'm not too proud to do them, lol
  3. Harriet. You are not an indolent slug. Stop it. I don't know whether a mind flayer is messing with you, or whether the Leechen Cloak is sentient and whispers these things to you, or what, but that sort of thought pattern does you no good, Shieldmaiden. And you are better than that. I've just barely met you and I can tell that. Also, screw what Google says. Is the cleaning getting done? Is the dust gone? Then you win. Hell, you dust? I'm 43 and I haven't dusted since my mom used to make me do it. So you double win.
  4. Please to not do the breaking of yourself again, K? Take it slow and easy with the lifting to start with. (OHAI I'M THE POT WATCH ME DIVE HEADFIRST INTO DDPY AGAIN LOL) I am jealous of your weather right now, TBH. Ours is the sucky grey sky and weird high winds today. IT'S 73 DEGREES HERE ACCORDING TO WTFORECAST AND WTF, BUT CLIMATE CHANGE ISN'T REAL OR ANYTHING It's JANUARY. And it feels like mid-April here. FML. Anywayzies, I am also jealous of your walk. That looks like a nice one. I can't take my Charlie anywhere nice to walk because The Scotsman
  5. SO I am not going to rewrite the same stuff I just wrote in my Challenge thread, if you're interested, go read that. This week didn't go like I wanted it to, and that's okay. I'm grading myself a C, and that's okay, too. So next week will be better. I found my DDPY disc, I think I've got a better plan, and I'm ready. I'm really, really ready this time around. So let's go.
  6. End of week 1 update: C. Maybe a B-, but I really feel like it's a C. SO to begin with I couldn't find my friggin' DDPY starter disc until Wednesday. Add in that the kiddo was still home from school until also Wednesday & I have...I don't know... "THINGS" about working out in front of people. I don't like it. At all. So...kinda didn't do it? Then rain ruined walking at least once... *sigh* BUT I did work on the TG once I did do 20 minutes of DDPY Beginner Beginner once I did meditate five days for sure I did my affirmatio
  7. 1/09 2020 Goals: 1. Morning pages/meditation/affirmations/journal 2. DDP Yoga (try for 30 minutes rather than 20 -- the entire Beginner Beginner is 50+ minutes & I'm trying to figure out where I can find that time) 3. Dayjob (Total: 2 hours 16 minutes held over from 1/08) 4. Log MFP 5. Read Ch. 11 of YAAB (read 9 & 10 on 1/8 -- 9 was only 3 pages) 6. Knit something, dammit.
  8. 1/08/2020 Goals: 1. Morning pages/meditation/affirmations/journal 2. Total Gym upper body (So I am completely weaker than I used to be and I will be feeling this for the next few days) 3. DDP Yoga I found my DDPY Disc 1, started Beginner Beginner, only did about 20 minutes of it but better 20 minutes than nothing, right? 4. Dayjob (total, because yesterday was really super crappy, is 2 hours 16 min audio held over to tomorrow.) 5. Log MFP 6. Read Ch. 9 of YAAB 7. Knit on the Scotsman's hat

  10. 1/6/2020 So I got up this morning late -- my alarm didn't go off because I turned it off last Friday and never turned it back on. Okay, fine. Up at 6 instead of 4. Okay, fine. Did my morning pages, was just getting started on my affirmations when The Scotsman came home. "I gotta go to the doctor." See, something happened to his right index finger on Wednesday or so of last week, and when he got to work on Sunday, he showed it to a colleague who said "Dude that looks like staph, you need to see a doctor." "The Child and I are supposed to go shopping today. We'
  11. Heyla. No, I don't think we've been on the same track before, Old Fox. Loire, she's more raccoon than fox, but she's straight as a sunbeam, she'll give me back my shinies when the time is right. Springtime proper, maybe, there'll be meat in my traps 'stead of air and moonlight. (Translation from Thieves' Cant: Hello. No, I don't think we've met before, Guild Leader. My friend Loire is holding my tools; she's tricksy, but not thief/assassin tricksy, she'll give them back. I'm hoping that by spring, I'll be of more use to the Guild proper.)
  12. 1/5/2020 Official first day of the first challenge of 2020. So current stats as of yesterday morning: Weight: 229 and change (Yay I'm already back under 230 or around there) Flexibility: Crap Endurance: Crap Strength: Super crap Those all three need to change. See my Challenge thread for details. So here we go. Goals for today: 1. Morning Pages/meditation/affirmations/journaling 2. Grocery shopping 3. Walking 20 minutes 4. Check prices of DVD players at W/M while I'm there. I pro
  13. Since I can barely draw a straight line, I am most impressed. You did his shadow, too!
  14. Simple for your first time, doll. Just go with steak. Supposed to be tomorrow, but I kind of half-ass started already, too. GO LOIRE, GO! Yes, please to no more broken Shaar/Loire please. Oh, GOOD. wicked smile Weekend is GOOD. I found a Penguin Funko Pop that my brother said was okay to take out of the box! And The Riddler was right beside him! Picture is sideways but there's one in my thread.
  15. I bought toys instead. Gomez, Morticia, Fester, Cousin It, the Batman TV Show Penguin and Riddler, and Demona came home with me today. Jeans in a week or two. Promise.
  16. Following. I used the Zombies, RUN!C25K app a couple of years ago, and I really quite enjoyed it. I didn't finish it -- the weather turned against me -- but I am actually planning on getting back into it probably Tuesday or so of next week when my new hiking boots arrive. My problem with running/walking fast is that I get horrible pains in the front of my shins if I walk too fast for too long. I was told it was my shoes the first time around, and I think maybe that was right because I remember getting new shoes helped. But it may have been pushing on through that hel
  17. And so we begin. The daily battle log Will be where I post my daily updates. Most of those are not going to be very entertaining, but they might hold something of use. This thread will be more the weekly update and where I go over where I made mistakes. I'm working on a grading scale.
  18. Two more inches on The Scotsman's hat and I get to start the decreases! YAY But then the next project is a scarf or another hat for The Child. BOO But it's for their cosplay so it will make them happy.
  19. Plan for 1/4/2020 1. Morning Pages/affirmations/journaling 2. Meditation 3 30 to 45 minutes of dayjob so I've got a head start on the 6 hours for next week (Not necessary exactly but kinda) Yeah No The items below have no real ranking 4. If it's not friggin' RAINING, walk 20 minutes Walked all around the flea market twice, and it's a big flea market 5. Read/knit/whatever 6. Goodwill clothes shopping? Maybe. (I haven't had a new pair of jeans since probably 2012/2013. Am currently wearing a pair we bought (AT GOODWILL HA) for
  20. Scheisse. Hey now, Old Fox. Traps all tripped, no go the last time around. Hitting low runs a bit, gonna make for little little game, heya? (Translation from Thieves' Cant: Hello, Guild Leader. I've nothing to show or pay in from my last trip out. I'm focusing on smaller targets now.)
  21. Oh, that's a fantastic way of redefining my outlook, Defining, thanks!
  22. Space Mom loves us and wants us to be healthy, drink our water, and get enough sleep. RE: Steampunk music -- it's a pretty large subgenre. I thought, since I think I read somewhere that you like symphonic metal (you do know of the late great Sir Christopher Lee's forays into same, yes?) that you would like Ghostfire. Abney Park is steampunk metal, personally I don't care for them, but that's me, and there are others -- but for truly steampunk music, you can't go wrong with The Cog Is Dead. I absolutely LOVE them, and their "Steam Powered Stories" album is the writing sou
  23. Saw this in my email, came to second The Clash. "This is a public Service Announcement! With Guitar! Know your rights All three of them" Gonna throw The Kinks out there, you probably know them from "Lola." "I met her in a club down in old Soho, where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry cola C-O-L-A, cola..." Also just gonna leave this here for ya... DANG it. This is the wrong link. It's the right song but I wanted to leave you the ACTUAL video. This is the song w/lyrics. And now I can't take the video out of the darn post. Um,
  24. I know that, it's just irritating. And I can't help the rain, but I could have worked out on the Total Gym instead of lying down when hubby got home this morning. I just have to make better choices tomorrow. ❤️ & thanks for the encouragement.
