    Zaethe: Shieldmaiden's Saga [Ch.01]

    Met a girl, hit it off, talked for hours long into the night, finally said goodnight and then never heard from her again, no response to messages, nada. Got me feeling like But regardless, got my own things to be getting on with so I can't let the whole thing drag me under. I'm realising I haven'tt done much updating on my actual goals. That's because all of them are fine and simple except for that dang water one. I'm learning a lot about my body and what it can handle, but I still can't overcome this staying hydrated hurdle. Not giving up on it though, it has to be tackled. I feel like there was more I was going to talk about but I now can't remember what it was. I'm sure it'll come to me eventually.
  2. Hey folks, So I'm struggling to find a useful resource for this, thought I would ask our bodyweight wizards. I have some pretty mean joint issues and a lot of recommendations I get are to keep my muscle strength going with isometric exercises. I can find a lot of articles on what an isometric exercise is, but I'm struggling to find enough to build a cohesive full body routine that I can be doing. I have my little yoga mat, and some good space, now I just need the knowledge of what I can be doing to start building some good strength. Thanks in advance!

    So I have a friend who loves to think she's helping, and feeds me all of this information about disability schemes and such in Australia. And I know all of it, so when she mentions it I say "Yeah, I know about it" and no matter what I say she then proceeds to wax poetic about it for half hour +. I get she's trying to be helpful, but for the love of all things, actually listen to me, you're wasting my time

    Well I managed to fix my sleep for about two days, and in those two days I overexerted myself to the point that even shifting around brings no relief. 5am and sleep is nowhere in sight, I'm so tired I feel ill but the ache is more than the sleepy. Doesn't help that a spider ran across my face a couple of hours ago. Stupid spiders.

    Physical. I've suffered with chronic pain most of my life. Originally it was diagnosed as arthritis, but 14 years after that diagnosis my doctor can't find any traces of any arthritis at all, no matter what tests we run. So I'm jumping through diagnosis hoops at the moment. Because of that my doc won't prescribe any heavy duty pain relief, because it may interfere with whatever is wrong and potentially make it worse. So medication wise nothing I have actually works. It's....fun. Thanks for hugs hugshugshugs

    Everything hurts, woke up on time, did almost nothing most of the day and then drove an hour to go visit my dad. Shouldn't have done that, am now not leaving this bed until I stop almost crying whenever I sit up.

    Today's mad adventure brought to you by tiny skinks and their brat behaviour. So I'm chilling, stretching my joints and dozing a little cause I didn't get much sleep, when I see movement out of the corner of my eye. I look up and there's this skinky lizardy boy, about 4" long, just chilling out. Poor boy, so i get a little paper to scoop him up and take him outside where all the tasty bugs are, and he does this weird contortion thing and then vanishes. Never seen an animal move so fast. Now I'm not sure if that was a lizard or a baby snake. Panic mode, I'm reviewing my brain footage in frame by frame detail trying to see if I actually noticed feet. I gear up in thicker clothes, all skin covered, and start taking my room apart to find this guy, cause if it's a snake I need to call someone. I haul every inch of bedding off my mattress, flip the mattress, clean every inch of my floor, pull out the spare mattress and put it in the other room, take out my laundry after a good shake of each item. I'm pouring sweat, panting, everything aches cause no way am I stopping til I find him. Eventually I say nope, can find it, I'm.gonna have to call my property manager, cause if it's a snake I ain't dying today! So I call, the receptionist hangs up and goes to talk to my actual property manager, i put the phone down, get up to stretch my back... And there the little fucker is, sat on my windowsill nice as you like, on his little tiny matchstick legs, laughing his lizard ass off at me. He's now outside, I've updated the property manager and put most of my room back together. I'm not entirely convinced that skink wasn't mother, back from the aether to tell me to clean my room one more time.

    Positive - I'm up in the actual morning, at a reasonable time, and I got a couple of things done I needed to do months ago. Negative - I'm running on about 5 hours of sleep, and spent the first half hour of being awake talking to the government. Which took five phone calls to get done what turned out to be a five minute conversation. So I'm pleased with my achievement, but by fuck am I grumpy about it.

    Thankyou! I fell in love with it the minute I saw it, absolutely had to have it. I am, for sure. I'm still paying attention to the losses, but the wins don't get drowned in defeats for sure. It really was, they were originally only holding onto it for a week, so they were super amazing about holding onto it for longer. And thanks pushing the fake it til you make it on positivity has been pretty useful over the years, for sure

    Yeah I've seen some of the crazy fruit costs. I watch Simon and Martina on youtube pretty religiously, and they've done a few comparisons of standard vs premium fruits, it gets a little crazy! I do know that you can get frozen berries at most konbinis, and berries in oatmeal are also crazy delicious, if this helps your fruity oatmeal cravings!

    Payday, which of course means I'm broke already. I'm recouping after some big bills, but I'm on top of pretty much everything and only barely in the red, so I'm okay with this. Picked up my cane today, I've been needing one for a while and the pharmacy had this one on hold for me for about four weeks bless them. It's pink and blue, with cherry blossoms on it. Very happy me.

    Sure was me! It's very delicious, and my heart breaks for you that mango is hard for you to get, especially knowing that Japan usually has amazing fruit quality.

    Better, after about 11 hours of sleep. Joints aren't too happy about that, but nothing that isn't manageable. I'm actually quite pleased that I've caught up on some rest I was lacking, so there's my silver lining. Got some fresh air, haven't eaten yet which I'm just starting to notice now, not enough water. Big surprise. Time to go chug some more in a half hearted attempt to catch up

    Caffeine helps sometimes, but today's one is stubborn, and has made a reappearance tonight, only I can't find a comfortable enough space to relax and take the weight off my skull to rest properly. Yay
