Siferiax strides forward

I basically passed out on the couch at my parents yesterday.
Had quite a stressful day at work (not in the something bad happened there way. Just the work itself was high pressure)
And this whole week has been kinda exhausting, so I was beat.
I'm feeling slightly better now. Last day of the workweek.

This week HAS been exhausting...I feel it with ya, Sif. But, like you said, it's the last day of the workweek and that's ALWAYS exciting :D What are your plans for the weekend?

Less exciting this last day.
Worked two extra hours and had a lot of stress.

Now it's time for weekend!

Saturday we wanna put up the Christmas tree and Sunday we have a Sinterklaas celebration with friends.
So yeah... Not too busy, not quiet either.

Yay for your Christmas tree and Sinterklaas celebration! :D  ...How do your kitties get along with your Christmas tree?  I still haven't actually gotten one with my current cat because I worry about his craziness.  >_>  I hope the rest of your weekend went well!

My parents used to have a really big (fake) tree, and we only really had two issues. The first was one of our cats getting stuck over halfway up the tree. We stopped putting lights on the tree after that (they held the branches up). The second was the cats thinking the ornaments were toys. That was solved when we figured out they didn't like the ornaments my mom made out of cinnamon, so we started putting those on the bottom and everything else out of their reach.

 

This year I have a real wreath that went outside as soon as I got home with it. I don't trust my cats with it.

Since this was the first year we put up the tree again... We just found out XD
Our cats are slightly older now (5&4) so that definitely helped.
We also have a fake tree as a real one would be hazardous and tempting.
The cats initially were scared/curious and then indifferent. But what we feared a little seems to be happening? The little one decided it was food. Because... Plastic is eatable... I just hope she only chews and doesn't swallow.
Our other cat is completely ignoring the whole thing.

Sounds like common problems ^^
Good to hear you found solutions!

-falls down in a blubbery mess-
Work is so challenging I'm totally taxed both during and after.
I'm often distracted instead of working.
Also because I can't 100% focus on my task as people wish to use my knowledge.

Maybe tomorrow some noise canceling headphones + status do not disturb.
I need to get this done and I hate it and it's super complex and hard.

-sulks in corner-

Also I'm super bad on some of my goals and I bought all (read 2) the snacks today...

But in the train now to BF's work so I can go home with him ^^
(Cause the train home was being unreliable...)

... Almost weekend ...

Well shit. Every snack I had yesterday, has made me sick.
Is this the end of snack loving Siffy?
Is this the way to beat my obsessive eating?
Getting a stomach which is super sensitive?
Things to contemplate about...

I found the older I get the more sensitive my stomach gets, so maybe this is a solid way to beat the snacking siren? Snacking isn't a bad thing either...WHAT you snack with does make the difference though. Is there any types of fruits and nuts you like to snack on? I know for me I love cashews and almonds and sometimes I'll grab some sunflower butter which is AMAZING! I like dried fruit too, so I do figs, apricots and apples every now and again. There is a way to beat this, Sif, and I know you have it in you to figure out what works and what doesn't :)

 

Maybe this LINK can help start you on a healthy snack journey :D

But actually Sinterklaas, not Christmas XD

Ah I don't snack unless it's on yummy stuff.
I love softer textures like doughy things most.
But I also can't deny the siren song of chocolate [emoji14]
So either I don't snack or it's yummy.
I don't need the snacking hunger wise. Just emotional wise XD

Ugh I'm upset about it.
But my BF made a lovely dinner and it was really yummy ^^

Still having stomach issues, but unsure how they relate to food at this point. They seem more and more unrelated.

My BF wants to find out what's wrong together instead of relying on doctors, as the last time I had stomach issues... They made things worse for me and not better.

On a lighter note I've been watching a bunch of movies lately. It's been fun.

We got a movie voucher with our Christmas stamps. It was with a streaming service we hadn't used. (comparable with iTunes)
So I signed up. It had Deadpool for a lot cheaper than iTunes lol.
But we didn't watch that as I felt my BF wouldn't enjoy it. My BF is kinda against superhero movies as he feels they are too predictable and he can vaguely guess (correctly!) how the movie will play out.
And I can see that, but only in hindsight. He just doesn't really enjoy movies like that.
So I make it a point to find intriguing movies.

Some time ago we watched Arrival. And it was great. My BF enjoyed it. I was already spoiled before it started, but I guess that made me enjoy it more?
I'm more and more not against spoilers and sometimes actively seek them out to determine if I would like something.

But anyway, I ended up asking if he wanted to watch Jack Reacher. A movie I have had an interest in seeing after Steve mentioned it... I dunno how long ago lol.
So the little premise text was intriguing enough and we both ended up REALLY liking the film. It wasn't predictable for my BF. And I generally like things lol. The premise for the second movie sounded a lot weaker though [emoji14]

We ended up getting another discount thing, so today I watched Deadpool. Finally. Lol.
Been meaning to ever since I saw the trailer.
It was a lot of fun. But I can see how it would've been predictable for my BF ^^
For comparison I watched Deadpool for 2 euros on hire instead of having to buy it for 10. Better :)

I still have some more Marvel movies to watch. I keep a list. Next one is probably Spider-Man. Though chronologically should be Guardians of the Galaxy 2. But considering I saw Captain America the Winter soldier only last week... Who cares about chronological [emoji14]

Stomach issues might be the old issues I've had.
So trying to do the breathing exercises I learned back then to see if it goes away.

D&D yesterday which was a ton of fun!!!
Part of the fun was one player getting another drunk (on spiced milk of all things) and the player getting a 5 on his constitution save. Like 10 or higher I would've let him get up... But now he just fell to the floor [emoji14]
I think it was a good session and I'm proud I pulled it off. I still make a ton of mistakes and it's still a steep learning curve, but with each session I learn and improve.

I have my exit interview on Friday.
So I'll just hand in my stuff and take with me some wine and a Christmas package.
The wine is from a promotion I ended up not getting because I leave the company.
But I was still on the wine buying list it seems XD

Almost done. Grabbed some more stuff together I need to hand in. It will feel so much better when this is done.

Work has me completely beaten down by now.
This week has been so overwhelming and stressful.
Fortunately for my sanity what went wrong in my fix today wasn't necessarily my fault.
But it was all crap and I have now 2 hours of overtime on my clock.
I can use these well for Friday, but still.

At least today BF gets home again and he promised me all the hugs.

Don't mind how this challenge is going. It's probably not going and I'm just journalling here.
I don't even actually care... But maybe that's because the scale is super discouraging and I feel I won't be able to significantly change it... Ever.
Unless I stop eaten altogether I suppose...
(Scale is at 93.5kg currently. As in yesterday morning. I don't stand on it all that often.)

I feel I'm just whining, but oh well. It's good to get things off my chest.

It's totally fine to use your challenge for journaling. I think most of us end up doing that at times. 

 

Right now I'm too scared to actually weigh myself and take measurements. Maybe I'll just stay off of it till New Year's Day and just kind of start over fresh. 

 

You can change the number on the scale, it's just not easy (and definitely not quick). And it gets even harder around the holidays because there's such a focus on food. The extra stress from everywhere doesn't help either. But one day you'll get there! :)

I've been there, but it wouldn't last for any sorta time, because I'm a snackamagoof...
Especially when I diet the bets are off and I end up binge eating.
Being over true binge eating now, I don't want to diet.

But yeah having a place to dump my thoughts is nice ^^

BF came home and cuddles were had and that was really nice.
He had also bought Christmas presents while away, but that sorta went a little badly. Something with airplane pressure... And beer.

I managed to actually be productive yesterday.
I packed all the presents we already had.
Then also folded laundry and did a new batch of it as well.

And then I made the house cozy and made tea. And then BF came home before the tea was cold. Win!
