Oh, also, I meant to tell you, thank you so much for this gif. This was the 1000% cutest gif I have ever seen and I am overwhelmingly grateful to have had my heart warmed by it.

 

giphy.webp 

I DID TOO! <3 <3 <3 I ran across it and had to find a way to share. It is as apt as it is adorable. :) 

 

DAY FOUR: MORNING EDITION

I have a massive to-do list today. We are trying to move out of the trailer and all the way into the house, but until our appliances arrive, we still need the trailer kitchen. I am going to try and secure the rest of the space, organize the house so we can stage and put away the rest of what we packed when we evacuated (all the camping stuff. ALL of it. -.-), do food prep for the week, wash/fold the week's laundry, clear up the living room from various organization endeavors, and get to the gym. I'm putting that off until later because:

1) I am down to my last workout outfit, which I have on for all the chores

2) I don't want to be so tired that I don't end up doing the housework

 

On the other hand, I don't want to use housework as an excuse not to go to the gym (there's a certain level of anxiety I fight to get out there and I don't want to give into it), so I will NOT be putting that off, even if it means driving there tonight in the truck (shudder). The other parts of my schedule can shift a little, but it seems like if I budge on gym time, it doesn't happen. Also, working out at home doesn't count because working through the anxiety doesn't happen if I don't go to the place that makes me anxious. 

 

If I get a ton of work done, I might count that as chores for tomorrow (I have a busy day of wrapping gifts, band, and book binding planned) but that will depend on if Husband says "HOLY SHIT, WOMAN!" or similar when he comes in the door--but no fishing for compliments with adorable hints of Hard Working Koala. It only counts if he says it of his own accord.

 

I'll update tonight!

Can we get a picture of the bound book? I always find that really interesting. 

Sure! I haven't done it before, but I bet I have pretty much everything I need hanging around the house. I will be using these instructions and whatever I can find in my vast collection of Craft Crap.

You will be delighted to hear that those were his exact first words. 

 

DAY FOUR, EVENING EDITION:

I did so freakin much work today.

Spoiler

During the last seven hours, I've: washed five loads of laundry and put half of it away; organized three closets; relocated a bunch of heavy stuff; purged several trash bags of junk and keepsakes (that part was rough), organized the cabinets under three sinks; deep cleaned a bathroom (like, Bar Keeper's Friend to the mineral build-up line in the toilet, scrubbing grout with a toothbrush), cleared off, set, and adding decorations to the dining table; tidied up my side table by the couch;  hung the rest of the ornaments on the tree; put three baskets of laundry from a couple days ago away; hung curtains; took my favorite books out of hurricane storage, dusted their bookshelf, and put them away; brought stuff in from the trailer; finally trimmed some wedding photos to an appropriate size (been putting this off for years! I was about to put my scissors away, saw the frame and was like NOW IS THE TIME!); carried a TV out to my friend's car; probably something else, but I think you get by now that it was a LOT

 

It was less this

200.gif

 

and more like this

 

tenor.gif?itemid=3481512

 

 

It was a productive day, which is awesome; even better I remembered to incorporate squatting every time I picked something up. If you actually read the list above, you can imagine the tired from all that. So the good news is that all the running, scrubbing, squatting, reaching, washing, picking up, dusting, and organizing kept my heart rate up at a decent clip for much of the day; the bad news is that I won't be going to the gym. I'm very confident that a workout tonight would over-do it and it is best to rest up and see how I feel in the morning. I don't have anxiety about going (whoohoo!), I'm just stinky, hungry, and dead tired.

 

fsz8eRM.gif

 

(And also, Ben keeps saying stuff like "WOW" and "you got a lot done" so I definitely get to check off more chore-hours. Yussssss!)

 

Commitments

Workout: See chores -.- 

Chores: Definitely, AND I can tick off tomorrow due to Husband's first words in the door.

Self Care: After I post this, I'm going to use a face mask, take a long shower, and knit until I get sleepy. 

Creative Outlet + one hour from yesterday: I did a little knitting this morning but was really groggy, so I'm going to put on a movie and knit after I shower

Eat with Family: We ate together at breakfast! Missed dinner this evening due to getting a sit. It was a good sit, but not a table sit.

DAY FIVE, MORNING EDITION:

I am really glad that I didn't tack on a workout to everything else yesterday. All the body parts are achy in the verge of owie this morning. Painkillers, water, and sleep seem to have done a lot to improve things so I will visit the gym today to face down the anxiety that popped up this morning. As for an actual workout, I'll have a gentle day of riding my bike to and from the gym, and walking to campus this evening. I could definitely benefit from yoga, too; the seats for the pep band leave much leg room to be desired and I am not feeling limber.

 

I can't stop watching his arm. O.O

999x-999.gif?w=606

 

My day is getting cut a little short by band, so I'm going to spend a couple hours doing chores and use my Free Day tomorrow to get a breather before the whirlwind of activity next week. I also don't have the solid chunk of time I'd like to pursue my Creative Outlet commitment today or tomorrow; that's getting tabled until the weekend, when I can make a vat of tea and get everything just-so for the book binding attempt. My desk became a catch-all when we were evacuating--normally it is totally clear except for a set of Sterilite drawers, a teapot, and the laptop--so maybe I'll tackle that today instead. WE SHALL SEE! OFF TO THE GYM!

DAY FIVE, EVENING EDITION:

Wrote a big old post and somehow closed the tab while going for the exclamation mark and lost it. -.- Basically the whole day was spent waiting for things to happen that got delayed. I did go to the gym for the anxiety reduction part of my workout goal, but I didn't do a workout there due to Domestic Rangering DOMS. I walked a mile, and rode my bike for two and that sounds like good active rest to me.

 

COMMITMENTS

  • Workout--Active rest, mentioned above
  • Self Care--I missed this, which kinda sucks since it can be anything...
  • Creative Outlet--started sewing pages together, worked on a different format for my journal because I'm using watercolor paper and a 365 day journal would be Complete Oxford English Dictionary big. Not happy with the amount of work that got done, adding an hour to Saturday (how I was going to spend Saturday anyway, but now it's OFFICIAL.
  • Do Chores--Ran loads of laundry, cleared part of my desk, but I'm not satisfied with the progress so I'm adding an hour to tomorrow.
  • Eat with Family--Dinner!

The arm gif is beyond disturbing... But the desk clearing one is beyond satisfying. You're just the master of extremes, aren't you?

I'm not going to lie, your chore blitz is inspiring! I'm toying with the idea of tackling my craft storage room this weekend (which I've been putting off forever)

Hahaha, I find the things and have to share them. 

 

Thank you! I am not usually that productive, I'm just at the end of my damn rope with this hurricane. Next year, the only hurricanes I want come with extra cherries and rum. -.- I have a craft corner, so I am positively drooling at your craft room. O.O I needed a desk so I took the old dining table (we got the board game table off Kickstarter), and put it in a corner of the sunroom. It's about the length of a regular desk and a little deeper; it gives ample room to store things at the edges and still have space to work with. I have two bins under the table with needlework,(knitting, embroidery, fabric for sewing), painting supplies; and that set of drawer on top that has stamps, ink pads, writing utensils, paper, and stickers. My sewing machine is pretty poor quality sew (haaaa) I go over to my neighbor's house for that, but I have inherited the huge machine-with-cabinet my grandmother got in the sixties (from movers who didn't know how it got on the truck). That thing is a beast! My mom says it does French seams through denim like a hot knife through butter. If I play my cards right, I might get TWO craft corners! :D

DAY SIX

My schedule for today went from "everything is accounted for and will be done presently" to

 

ggnV2p.gif

 

Plans changed, packages were supposed to finally arrive, and I basically lost my momentum and couldn't get it back. I did get some cooking done, as well as binding and gift wrapping, so it wasn't like the day was a total mess, but it sure felt like it.

 

Oh, the struggle!

tumblr_n3yydflpW51s2wio8o1_500.gif

 

I'm going to give it another try tomorrow. I'm pretty sure my mood blerg is being exasperated by hormones (and also sads, we're trying to start a family so Shark Week is extra disappointing), but I really need to fight through this and wrap up the week on a high note. I know I can do it!

 

latest?cb=20151004231421

 

COMMITMENTS:

Workout--Missed it. -.-

Self Care--Stress Nap (didn't sleep well last night, which didn't help)

Creative Outlet--More binding, some pretty gift wrapping

Do Chores--Missed it. -.-

Eat with Family--Missed this too. -.-

I'm sorry your day didn't go as planned.

Can I say that I approve of napping as a coping mechanism however?

It was! I got everything wrapped up and under the tree, went to a Christmas party for my quilting group, and... actually, that's pretty much it. I did spend six hours wrapping (lots of small stuff and I'm a perfectionist) so I guess that's where the time went. 

 

WEEKLY WRAP-UP

Workout--2/3 visits to the gym, 3/3 active things (walking to band two days, riding bike two days, a nine hour day of chores, and a workout in the gym; proud of the improvement!)

Self-Care--5/5 days (mostly naps because anxiety is exhausting and I've been waking up in the middle of the night, but it is an effective coping mechanism)

Do Chores--5/5 days and I am VERY proud of the work I accomplished! This has been a sticking point lately because it is so easy to get overwhelmed but I really kicked ass. :D

Creative Outlet--3/5 days, but 5/5 hours because I'm counting the wrapping as both a chore and a creative thing. 

Eat with Family--3/7 days. Husband has been too tired to socialize for long when he gets home, poor guy. Heimdall stares at me while I eat, but that doesn't really count. 

 

Is that a food? Ooooooh I like the food

original-15302-1489780808-9.jpg?crop=955

 

 

I am really pleased with how things are going so far! It's not perfect, but this schedule is solidifying nicely and I've done a pretty good job at fulfilling the commitments when I have to move things around. I'm going to drop the journaling goal for now since I'm binding the thing myself. Since I've never done it before, we're still trying to get settled, and it is the holidays, I'm going to pencil in a goal to have a journal ready to use by New Year's Eve. 

 

Tomorrow starts a new week! Depending on what goes on with my cramps, I may go to the gym and get a workout out of the way just in case Monday is an unholy terror (the standard level of... discomfort). Worst case, all I have going on for Sunday is Self Care and thus curling up into a ball and using the dog as a heating pad is a-okay.

So Sunday I took did self care like a champ (curl into ball and consume pain killers, nap a lot) and did the same thing the next day, which is not so good considering that I had so much more to do. In the evening I ended up folding a couple loads of laundry just to cross off something on the list of commitments. So, workout/gym visit is switched to today,  and I need to catch up on chores and a creative outlet. 

 

I'm pretty much going to be stuck here until 5, though. Our appliances are arriving (YAAAAAY) by then, but that gives me time to tidy up ("they aren't guests, they're delivery men" they are STRANGERS in my HOUSE and I might give them something to drink so everything must be P-E-R-F-E-C-T), get the laundry put away, take out the trash, clean up the kitchen, and set the table. 

 

tenor.gif?itemid=8278363

 

SO! Busy day of chores, mostly, with a couple hours of fun stuff and a trip to the gym that I really don't want to do because Shark Week is painful, zaps me of all energy and motivation. In fact, this would be the first time in years that I will have managed to do it. I bet that'll feel like a million bucks once I get home. :D 

 

So I know I've used this gif before, but there is an amazing follow up 

and I WANT TO EARN IT

DAY TEN

 

Today was a solidly horrible day.

 

Two hours before the delivery window, my husband unplugged the fridge to get ready for the new appliances. When he pulled on the plug, the outlet snapped in half. Like, the female end attached to the male end and came out of the wall. Neither of us has any experience with electrical hoohas, so I got to calling electricians and he checked Youtube to see if he could do it himself. I set up just-in-case, he decides to go to Home Depot for parts--and the truck battery is freaking dead. Our neighbor jumped the truck for him, he left, got the part, managed to get back home, and spent an hour getting the plug re-attached. The delivery guys got here, told us they weren't going to set up the stove because it was propane, nor were they going to take the microwave because they weren't putting in a replacement. Fine, whatever, we'll handle it. While they were trying to move the fridge out of the house, it wouldn't freaking fit through a doorway; they ended up having to take the doors off which left the house with a horrendous stench that was stuck in the air for another eight hours--because remember, that meat went bad. Really, really bad. >.> Anyway, they leave and the two of us are just bundles of nerves--twitchy eyes, trouble forming coherent sentences, the whole bit. I was finally calming down at 5:30 when a reminder went off for pep band and "OH SHIT OH SHIT GET THE PANTS OUT OF THE HAMPER WHERE'S MY HORN SHIT SHIT SHIT" was pretty much all I said for the next ten minutes. I was, unfortunately, running late with no truck to drive (it wouldn't start up again when Husband got home), no lights on my bike making it illegal to ride on the way home, and way too late to walk there. A friend of mine was also running late and, thank goodness, was close enough to my house to give me a ride. Sweet. On the way to her car I saw that the delivery guys left a refrigerator door just hanging out in the driveway. Once I got home from the basketball game, which had the all the zest of sawdust cereal with skim milk, I wanted to head to the store but once again, the truck won't start (it has something like 60,000 miles on it, it's still new dammit) so we got another neighbor to give us a jump and see what he could see (he's a retired big rig driver). He thinks it's a water level problem, teaches us to fix it, and sends us out for a two hour drive. We get home, try to start up the engine, and once again: the truck won't start. 

 

During the day, I cried twice, got Batman Voice angry three times, and made two attempts to get psyched to workout; between just a lot of stuff going on and trying to prevent panic attacks during the little downtime I had, it just didn't happen. No gif for me tonight. -.- Better day tomorrow!

 

Daily Commitments

  • Workout--nope -.-
  • Do Chores--Not really. There was a lot of stop and go today and I certainly don't feel like I got anything accomplished.
  • Self-Care--Did not actually dissolve into a panic attack, so something went right! This time last year, a day like that would have knocked me down for a week. Progress! <3
  • Creative Outlet--I bound more pages and started drawing up the journal. The intense concentration that comes with drawing a perfect grid was oddly therapeutic 
  • Eat with Family--we ate trash food in a Walmart parking lot, but we did it ~~XOXO~~together~~XOXO~~

that was ... dreadful.  

funny-polar-bear-meme-.jpg

hopefully the next day is better...

 

I really appreciate the validation, I really do. While trying to go to sleep last night, my  Self Doubt monster was saying "EXCUSES, EXCUSES! You used to be such a bad MF, now look at you! SLEEPING BEFORE DAWN!" 

 

DAY ELEVEN: MORNING EDITION

The stress from yesterday is definitely still hanging around. The stove wasn't converted properly (husband spent over two hours on it last night, bless him, but something isn't quite tight enough so we'll be working on that this evening), the truck's issues may have to do with a recalled part so we could be looking at a three month ordeal (waitlisted parts are waitlisted, yaaaaay), and my eye twitch is entering hour five for today. I just told my neighbor all about it and while she is usually the first one to tell me to git, she totally supported my decision to take today as is comes and try to unwind. I still need to get to the gym (only four days left in the week, and three visits to go -.-), but I may instead do a yoga video at home and just visit the gym for anxiety management. This morning I started getting cold symptoms; I probably shouldn't be trying to go hard today anyway. Last Christmas I pushed it and got bronchitis and pneumonia so bad I was in bed for three weeks. Stress and my immune system go together like arsenic and old lace. 

 

tumblr_nfob1h6VY01qe8pkxo1_500.gif

 

So, goals for today:

  • Workout: Ride to/from gym, stay there for half an hour, do yoga at home
  • Self-Care: Yoga, listen to music, breathing exercises, take a long shower, get to bed early, drink a ton of tea
  • Creative Outlet: Work on the journal, post progress
  • Chores: Already did it--make husband food, bring food from trailer fridge to the house fridge. He also encouraged a recovery day so that's it for today
  • Eat with Family: Hopefully dinner! Lunch is going to be spent dealing with the truck

DAY ELEVEN, EVENING EDITION

 

Dog encapsulates my feels

IMG_20171116_134432684_zpslc4rhow6.jpg~o

 

Today was also terrible. None of the stress from yesterday dissipated and things got so bad that I vomited up the entirety of my lunch and haven't been able to eat since. I've been drinking a lot of chamomile tea and water to stay post-puke hydrated and only just started getting hungry. I'll wait until the morning for anything more substantial than applesauce. 

 

00_What-Is-the-BRAT-Diet-and-Should-You-

 

Despite meltdowns and getting sick, I did manage to get a little bit done in the chore department, spent the day at my (TIDY!) desk working on my journal (see spoiler), took good care of myself post-porcelain worship, and spent a little koalaty time with Husband (didn't technically eat, but I think that's understandable). My last thing to do is knit in bed and get to sleep early.  Obviously I didn't do yoga today; something about down dog seemed downright disastrous. 

 

But not as bad as Disaster Date Yoga Girl

Spoiler

As required by goals, here is the progress for the journal so far. I wasn't up to binding this afternoon, so I worked on organizing the sections and figuring out how many pages I wanted and how I wanted them to look.

 

 

IMG_20171206_194647462_zpsw4exvuse.jpg?t

 

I saw a cool idea on the internets where a lady used post-its for her grocery pages so she didn't have to take up half the journal with reminders for milk and eggs. 

IMG_20171206_194829157_zpsr29jligw.jpg?t=1512523990?168

 

Right next to the progress chart for weightloss, I have reasons why I'm even bothering. A big one is that I made a promise to a fellow sailor who went into a dangerous line of work that, God forbid the time comes, I would fold and present his flag to his mother. If anything is going to tap into that military duty mindset, it's that. I made that promise years ago, but the commitment still stands. On the opposite page I have Ginny Weasley's wand and one of the best things she ever said (shortened for clarity). I spaced out rewards like "haircut" for what I would estimate to be three months apart to shamelessly fish for compliments from my hairdresser. The last two, "ride Hogwarts Express" and "go to the Yule Ball" are actually bucket list items; the Yule Ball is a black tie/ball gown/dress robes charity event hosted by the Hogwarts Running Club and is at a different location every year. Since it will probably take me a year to lose 80 pounds (in a steady, healthy, sustainable way) this is the perfect way to celebrate all that work.

IMG_20171206_194748538_zpsvwquk3fz.jpg?t=1512523990?341

 

 

Another thing I ran across was a mood tracker. I plan to use this mostly to track panic attacks and the like to have data on how much better I'm doing than I was two years ago, when a snide comment about my weight would knock me out for a week. It's also a handy way to track periods because every doctor asks when the last one was and I never know.

IMG_20171206_194900254_zpsbovbllp8.jpg~o

 

 

I also decided to throw in Grown-Ass goals. We have a lot to get done and I'm sure Husband will appreciate seeing how much we've been able to do. Personal appointments are in here too; it's not that I have a phobia about seeing doctors, it's just that I don't remember to have the checkups I need. I've been more of an urgent care kind of lady in the past few years, and that needs to stop. Shiz is expensive.

IMG_20171206_194937647_zpsrpoqecyp.jpg~o

 

Rather than having a section for every day, I'm just going to have a free form page for each month. There will be some days that are bland, but others will have a personal best or the huge effort of wearing pants. Not sure how I want to artsy up this area but it'll be colorful when it's done.

IMG_20171206_194947799_zpse8fx7rxt.jpg~o

 

I'm toying around with the idea of leveling up with goals. Depending on how I swing it, this could be a cool way to get motivated. I'm going to sleep on it and see what I come up with.

IMG_20171206_195038527_zpsq1i8u9za.jpg~o

 

There's a cool page that I apparently didn't take a picture of which is a list of things to do "when you feel like deep fried dog shit". It includes listening to the Kesha album "Rainbow", take a shower, light candles, wear my boots, practice handwriting, bake, sit in the sunshine, cuddle the dog, etc. I'm excited to see how that page turns out because it is going to be SO COLORFUL. 

 

Speaking of colorful, bonus Christmas Tree because you made it this far

IMG_20171202_183147166_zpsvah0otfh.jpg~o

 

 

 

 

  • Workout--Nope
  • Do Chores--Finished the meager list given by husband
  • Self-Care--No yoga, did listen to music a little, mostly just sat at my desk and tried to feel better
  • Creative Outlet--Sure did, AND I posted it like I was supposed to do!
  • Eat with Family--We talked, a table was involved, I didn't eat

I hope you can make some soup or something simple cooperate.

 

Has soup? Eat soup! :D 

 

Dog is Very Good Dog. He needs multiple hours of cuddles every day or he starts acting up. XD

 

I'm really excited to add colors to my journal. I think I'm about done with page types; I'll add a few bunches of blank pages because the paper is out and ready anyway. Maybe I'll print out a couple wedding photos or something; I was overweight then, but looked and felt gorgeous and I want to tap into that level of contentment, no matter where I am with progress. Huh, a scrapbook section--that's an idea.

Hoo boy, sounds like you've had a hell of a rough go of it. Murphy and his law seem to have settled nicely into your front lawn........

 

That's an incredible amount of stress for anyone to deal with it, and you're dealing with it like a champ. Sometimes things need to fall by the wayside in the short term to keep you sane in the long term, and it looks like you're taking your self care seriously. Just keep on truckin', you'll get through and things will settle eventually.

 

(Just realized, considering your vehicle troubles, 'keep on truckin'' might not have been the best choice of words, but you get the idea :) )
