Sorry you're feeling sick!  That hit me last weekend too.  Something is definitely going around.

 

Yeah, for sure. I met with a student today for some research help, and on the way to show him out I said "Hey, I'm getting over being sick, if you want some hand sanitizer" and he opened his bag and showed me his bottle of Dayquil that he's carrying around.

The kitten looks like it's getting bigger (or at least it does to me)!  Yay for more kitty to love! :D  ...I'm also in love with the little black paw pads on your bigger kitty's white furred feet.  They're just so cute!

 

She's definitely getting bigger. Taller and skinnier as opposed to heavier; her last vet visit showed she's not putting on a ton of weight, but she's in perfect health and still eating like a horse.

 

Thank you! We have three lovely cats, all tabbies of different breeds. We think Littlest is a Maine Coon mix, Giant Dude is a Siamese/Tabby mix, and Oldest is just straight-up tabby.

I think I will be okay! I'm feeling noticeably better today, and I think a good night's sleep will probably go most of the way toward fixing me.

 

 

OH RIGHT took a walk +25

Well, gang -- Dragoncon starts tomorrow, so I'll likely be off the grid (at least the NF grid) for a few days after today. 

 

I'm a little bummed out that I didn't/won't make it to kickboxing class this week. I could actually take the car out to do a class if I feel very motivated, but once I'm down at the con I know that's usually unlikely.

 

I'm greatly looking forward to six days (!) off work -- I just totalled that up this morning and was startled to realize how long a break I'm getting. It'll be fun, but the crowds are always a little exhausting.  Goals include:

  • Don't drink too much
  • Work out at least twice 
  • Eat as healthy as I can manage, but give myself a little slack if I slip
  • Get as much sleep as I can 
  • Carve out a few minutes to meditate every day so as not to break my streak.

I'll be in a hotel room with three other people, so sleep and meditation will take some work. :) But Ms Rogue and one of our roommates will be my gym buddies. I'm going to plan a hotel gym workout routine today, and I can always do Zombies Run on the treadmill (we will have a nice full-featured gym). There is a Friday morning fun run that Ms Rogue said she might want to do, and she wants to bring swimsuits to use the pool. (Hotels are SO UPTIGHT about skinny-dipping, man.)

Ohhhh, Maine Coon!  I adore Maine Coons!  They are so fluffy and pretty.  I have always wanted one, but I don't think it's wise since they tend to have longer fur and I am allergic (even though I deny it in the face of any kitty's cuteness).

...I'm going to miss seeing pictures of your kitties all the time, but have fun at Dragoncon!  Sounds like lots of fun! :D  Good luck on sticking to your goals!  ...and if you wait till it's really, really, really late, maybe you could go skinny dipping?  ...It depends if they close down the pool and make it inaccessible. ;)

THAT IS A REALLY EXCELLENT LIST FOR TRAVELING. The sleep will totally help with the recharge-times. Hopefully your hotelmates are keen on it as well. Fun run on Friday!!! Do it!

Yeah! Well, these are old friends we travel with a lot and we all have somewhat differing sleep habits, but I'm packing a sleep mask and earplugs. :) We'll make it work.

OK! I have caught up. I hope you're having an AMAZING time at DragonCon. I can't wait to see pics of your fine non-dad bod costumed self. AND, yes, *do* consider karate! it's so super fun! but there's not as much striking of targets as kickboxing so. (but sometimes you get to use SWORDS.)

Having a great time! Drinking very very moderately. Worked out again this morning, meditating every day, eating ... Ehh, not too bad. 

 

No costumes this year, but there is a company that makes assassins creed inspired coats at I've wanted for a few years. Yesterday I finally bought one. It's one they designed for John Barrowman and made ten of, and I got one of the ten. I'll model it for you guys when I can. :)

The great part about the hotel gym at Dragoncon is that it's never crowded. Just us and a couple of superhero cosplayers. :)

 

So, this morning, as I was driving our friends to the airport, Ms Rogue texted me that she'd gotten us seats for a ride on the Goodyear blimp this afternoon via her office. So we did that.

 

I've suddenly realized I'm traveling again next week. More hotel gyms!

Sticking my head in at the last second to say (really quickly because law school gives you a ton of work - WHO KNEW???):

KITTEN IS GETTING SO MUCH BIG. So cute.

Why'd you post a pic of John Barrowman, I don't get the link... HOLY ASSASSIN BATMAN - THAT'S YOU. Hey boy heyyyy looking good.

HEY IT'S ASA POND HEY BUDDY MUCH LOVE and thank you for the very sweet compliment TALK TO YOU SOON

 

Found out today that my coat's design is called the "Time Agent," very happy about that fact. Decided that what I like best about it is that it looks like I have a chest and shoulders. Okay, I will stop talking about the coat now, but I spent way too much money on it and I'm ready for it to be cool out soon so I can wear it. Thinking very hard about buying a hood to go with it to adapt into an AC costume for next con. (Our two big cons are the last weekend in May and Labor Day weekend, both hot as balls down here in GA, so costuming is sometimes challenging.)

 

So last week I give myself +180 points -- two good gym workouts that each included 30 minutes of cardio and a set of bodyweight stuff. There was a guy in the gym one day that I decided had to be a Spider-Man cosplayer; his workout included wall walks and handstands. Super impressive.

 

I was very remarkably good about not drinking too much at the con, which historically has -- ahem -- not always been the case.

 

Yesterday we all came home with a whole afternoon and evening to relax, and two more of our oldest friends came over, and we ordered Thai food and watched cartoons and it was really great.

I'll have to look at a calendar and go back and do some math to figure out my score last week. 

 

Damn it! I caught myself double-screening tonight, first time since the challenge started. Minus 10!

 

Tomorrow back to work, and back to the gym.

Yeeeeaah well next week I'm driving to Savannah, four hours south of here, and overnighting with my mom in Florida before I come home. I think I'm doing it wrong? I guess I won't bring the coat.

It sounds more like your mom should be coming to you, given the weather going FL's way! :o

Fortunately she's in very very north Florida, just south of the GA state line, so -- as far as we know at this moment -- not in the projected path. But they did have to evacuate once last year, so we never know.
