I warned them about that when they offered me the position.

I believe that!   I just wonder if they understood how far that power would go.  :D     We're all in good hands.  I'm sure of it.

Hey hey hey!  Omg, your excitement over my energy is creating an infinite loop of renewable hype power!   Yesssss!  Thanks!

 

So the weekend blew by... as they always do.

Things to note.   Food was fine.   It's almost, dare I say, getting easy?  Or to the point I don't have to overly think about it or stress about.    The only things that #trigger me are things I love, that happen to be ridiculous in calories.   Like my sister's homemade lasagna, or cheese tortellini.     A 'reasonable' portion for those things does nothing but piss me off, so I am in the habit of passing on them altogether.     It won't always be like that.    There's some room for me to tighten up my food - and that's with the fact, that I often have calories to spare at the end of the night, which I resolve with ... I kid you not, 5 Oreos and some almond milk.    I'd like to start better planning those excess cal goals, and take in lean proteins, healthy fats, and more veggies.    So that might be a side tracked food goal this time around.     Add more veggies to my daily diet.

 

I didn't exercise on Sat or Sun, but that's fine because I did get 5 days in during the week.   Only 1 was a lift, but I'm not fretting about it as it allows me to hit this week running with a solid M W F lift plan.   I helped take down the outdoor decorations on Saturday because it hit a glorious 48 degrees!  Shorts weather!  (I kid.)    Then I made dinner- my first attempt at salmon.    It went great!   It was maple soy glazed salmon, with jasmine rice and crinkle cut zucchini that I spruced up with a little Parmesan right out of the microwave.     We ate the back half of it today, with baked sweet potatoes and a broccoli / cauliflower mix.

 

We half-tackled a huge project at the gaming den today too.   To the tune of having spent FIVE HOURS ON IT!   We decided it would be easier for the DMs, to just look for monster mini's if they were alphabetized....     A-C into a bin, the rest only made it into labeled baggies because at the 4 hour mark we just wanted to pack up and watch anime...     We also need to order some more bins and figure out how best to situate them in the collectibles corner.  Oofta!

In other other news?  <.<   The scale went down another pound and stayed down.... with me eating more.   It's so so weird.   Like, I had been losing a bit over a pound a week before, and now it's like a hilly rollercoaster, where it hovers a bit up, then goes SWOOSH down, and ok cool!   Just gonna stay the course.

 

Tomorrow starts first FULL week of work for me in almost two months.  (Had to use up the last vacation days because it is use 'em or lose 'em by us.)    I almost never have days off in the first few months of the year, but I DO have Jan 23rd off to go see Hamilton with my brother, sister in law, and sister!  SO EXCITED!

 

ALRIGHT GUYS!

BEGIN OFFICIAL WEEK 1 ... NOW!

Best thing I've found is to Intermittent Fast leading up to a big feast so you can cram those extra calories in without going haywire on your daily intake.  Still not a perfect solution but better than no treats at all sometimes!  And more veggies, absolutely!  Lately I've been marinating cauliflower/celery in a baggie in this Tuscan Italian salad dressing I found.  Quite tasty actually!

Ooooooh, I wonder if I could marinate it in that, and THEN roast them in the toaster oven at work.   I LOVE veggies.  But I like them roasted or grilled, not a big fan of raw usually.   I might do this with dressing!    (Usually do olive oil and seasonings, but we have a coworker that has a shit storm if we 'stink up the office' with garlic smell.)  ((Yes, she is actually a vampire.))

We figured that alphabetical made the most sense, since we all preplan our encounters.   I know what'll be facing the party, and now I just need to go to the right bin/spot.   Sadly, we got so tired of doing this, that everything from D-Z is just in labeled baggies, and not put away into proper bins yet.... :(:(

 

 

So DAY 1 yo.

 

MY MOOP IS STRONG...

I'm continuing to suffer from a case of short-wick with people and situations.   Luckily, it's targeted, and not wide spread... but it's still just as concerning.   Two friends are on my GRRR list right now.    Just on account of doing things that really annoy me, or are frustrating, or their being in states of argumentativeness, etc...   One of them, even had a huge OOC fight with my other friend during my D&D game that I ran on Saturday.     And I totally agree with the friend who snapped, because the one he snapped on, is one I am short wicked with.    (It comes down to different play styles at the table, and the annoying friend being 100% unwilling to ever bend, change, compromise or adapt.)   Anyway... the long and short of it is, that I am in a really edgy place emotionally and mentally.     Like I am always one breath away from raging...

It also made me not want to do ANYTHING yesterday.   But I forced myself to anyway.

 

  • Workout Complete (Lift Day #1/3)
  • Spent time on the tablet, doing some art. (1/4)
  • Got some sketching time in.  (1/7)
  • Washed Face/Lotion (1/**)
  • Floss Champ (1/7)
  • Veggies Consumed (4)

Hoping to snap out of this mood soon, but I think that's going to take some help from the Divine.  (Being serious here, lol.)    Today is a planned run day, then hope to get some sketching and tablet time in, and then it's group Don't Starve tonight.

Well there is different play styles, and then there is just rudeness and self centeredness. If it's different play styles, then I think we  need  to just learn to live with each other and  go with the flow. But if someone is being rude, which is sounds like they are from your description, then maybe that person needs to be talked to. When I am having  difficulty with someone, I often pray to know the difference. I ask myself if it is something that I just need to let go, or is it something that needs to be addressed. I will pray for you to have wisdom as well as patience

May I suggest you go ahead and rage? Bury your face in a pillow and bellow out a primal scream, channel that rage into some arting, you have already lifted, but some angry workouts might be in order. That anger's there, keeping it in is only going to make things worse. Much better you vent it at a time and place of your own choosing rather than when you can no longer contain it and it boils out on whoever happens to be around.

DAY 2 //  Graewaorrwarrgh.

 

Long day at work.   Lots of little things going wrong.   I spilled something, not once, not twice, but four times today.   My friend got in a car accident (she's fine, but she really didn't need more on her plate after the last 5 months of stress she's gone through).  Bro brought his cat over for us to babysit (I'm allergic, and it's just a royal pain to have to work around this cat and what not).   I bought a new headset for gaming, that doesn't fit my wee little head, so need to return that.  

 

TL'DR - what a shite day.

 

I did get a little bit of tablet time in.

I got a run / walk in - but I did it outside.  It was 41 and sunny.  I thought it'd be fine.  Winds NNW 20-25mph.   Frak me!

I am about to teeth, face, and chill.    But I think I have missed the sketching today.   I'm tired.   I just want to sleep.

Well done on getting all the things done when you're having a bad few days.

 

Isthere anything in particular you can attribute your mood to? Lack of sleep, not enough food, work stress, home stress?

DAY 3 - I thought the mood couldn't get worse...

giphy.gif

 

The old saying of 'the straw that broke the camels back?'

That is how this week feels to me.    I mean, even looking at all the things, I feel like I KNOW they are nothing to get this upset about, but it's just one after another after another.    The latest one?    While pulling up the bookmark of a repeat recipe tonight, I got hit with Malware!   "Your windows is out of date and infected!"   I killed the task for Firefox and reopened it.   And the pop up ad came right back.   I killed the task again and opened Chrome.   No issue.  So through Chrome I snagged MalwareBytes and did a scan... it found nothing.  Wtf.    I gave it another scan.   Still nothing.   Reopened Firefox and... pop up gone?   I then cleared all my cache and cookies and everything else and now we sit tight.   Arg!

 

I had planned to play just one game of Northgard with my friend to test out the new headset.  Oh, that, btw was the first straw this morning, when Target said they would not accept the return on a 6 hour old Gaming Headset worth $50, because it was an electronic and not returnable.    It is, however, exchangeable for an equal amount... which just seems stupid.   They didn't fit my head!   And if the reason was, 'headsets are worn, it's a health thing' sure.  But you can't say an exchange is okay, but not a return then.    So argh.   Anyway.   About a third of the way through the game, it locked up, so we had to reload.   Then about ten minutes into that game I hear my sister scream for help in the living room.   I rush out there to see her laying on the ground, under the lazyboy chair, which her husband is holding up.   I clearly panic, because omg, the chair fell on her!   No... no, the damn cat, which I hate babysitting, got his toy fish string coiled up in the springs of the lazyboy, and they needed my help undoing it.    ... that took ten minutes.

 

That's not including the mistakes, the back and forth changing mind customers, the hot rushes, the failed lead times, and the huffy purchaser at work today.    But yeah, this is how it's all adding up on me.     Ok.   That's vented.

 

Despite this, I managed to do SOME stuff.    And now it's late, because while I planned to sketch at 10pm, I had to spend 30 minutes cleaning an infected computer.    So, it's update here, then wash face, teeth, update BuJo and *maybe* a sketch.   

 

I dragged my moopy ass out to the warehouse for a workout.    It was the worst workout I've had in weeks and weeks.   Everything felt so hard, and so heavy, and so impossible, and I was breathless right away, and grrrr!    My coworker who shares the box with me between noon and 1, said, hey, at least you're out here DOING it, and not giving in.   Everyone has an off day, but you didn't let it derail you.    Sure, good point.   But I also got zero of those 'I feel good' endorphins from doing any of it.      Until... UNTIL I said, "Ya know what.   Screw the last 2 sets on everything (I had done 3 already), I'm gonna use the heavy bag, but for as hard as I am going to hit it, you need to hold it for me."

 

THAT. FELT.  GREAT.

 

So, today.

  • Food fine.
  • Veggies: 5
  • Strength Day 2/3
  • Tablet Time 3/4
  • Face/Teeth 3/7
  • Bedtime: Here's hoping.

 

And I finished the latest art thing, that I was totally not digging or feeling enthusiastic about, so I just grabbed a stock photo background to spruce up the characters.    It was just two 'faces' I had sketched for practice, and then colored.     I really need to be inspired for an actual thing again.

 

captain_claire_delmare_and_first_mate_maris_by_lilwolfe006_dcwo9cf-fullview.jpg

 

This is Captain Claire Demare and her first mate Maris.    I just wanted some bad ass chick pirate/sailor types, and I dig how Claire came out just a touche androgynous, which I think is pretty fitting for a bad ass, suave, charismatic, awesome ship captain.   Maris is a half orc, and a whole lot more meek than people would expect someone of her appearance.     Unless you mess with the Captain of course.

 

Ok.   Tomorrow will be a good day!  I might even wind down with reading some bibles verses in bed.   (Wish I had a nicer, easier to handle bible for that.   I try to avoid screen time in the dark, but that's where my best translations are!  On my phone app!)

A 'reasonable' portion for those things does nothing but piss me off, so I am in the habit of passing on them altogether.  

 

I never realized that I actually feel the exact same way.  It might be easier to just not eat the stuff I am obsessed with at all because you're right - eating it reasonably really does kinda piss me off.

(It comes down to different play styles at the table, and the annoying friend being 100% unwilling to ever bend, change, compromise or adapt.) 

 

This annoys the heck outta me for you.  D&D is supposed to be fun and cooperative, yes there is some tension sometimes but that sounds just downright rude.  Sorry you have to deal with this :( Reminds me of the last campaign I was on we all agreed to be relatively chaotic neutral and err on the side of chaotic good and one of our players would just constantly murder everything that came into sight to the point that my character *should* have probably left the party but them like... what am I gonna do go have another side quest for the rest of eterninty without my group? So we all ended up succumbing to it just so we could keep playing together and ended up a chaotic evil party and it REALLY ANNOYED ME.  Hahah.

I love this! The ship in the back is so cool :)

 

Side note - I need to check out this show.  Apparently it's by the same people as Adventure Time, which I suspected from the illustration style and confirmed with the google machine, and I love that show so.... yes.

Other things on the list, but not tracked.

1. Keep up with the Scripture Memorization (We getting that rolling again guys?)

2. Keep up with the budgeting and house money savings.

3. Learn how to use my 3D printer and start printing awesome things.

 

Definitely keeping the Scripture thread going. I need the accountability lol! 3D printing sounds SO cool! I can't wait to see what you end up making! And this new show looks really fun! Artwork reminds me of Adventure Time lol. Where are you watching it at? Hulu? Netflix?

 

Following of course!

Right?   It's so weird.   Maybe I have a rebellious streak in me.   But it's like, 'you tell me what to do, hell no.'   But , 'I tell me what to do, fine!'      Maybe some day I will find that happy middle.

Yup, that's how we had it for a while, but even having played a long time as I have, I can't name a thing based off looking at it, unless it's pretty iconic.    Must. Finish. This. Project.

Yeah!   Like, ok, do your thing,  then compromise and do the other persons thing a bit.   Middle ground!   Maybe I just don't know how to collaborate as good as I think I do, or maybe I am at a point where I feel like I've bent a whole lot more than others have and so I am getting a bit bitter.   Not sure!     But one of MY players, sent me IC email RP because they are so psyched for my game and that boosted my mood quite a bit in this regard!

Thanks!  But I stole the ship!  >.>    But it does add quite a bit!

Omg omg so yes.   You can find it on Youtube for Seasons 1 and 2.   Season 3 is only available on VRV, or something like that.    But the crazy part?  I can't stand Adventure Time - but this show I LOVE!  I quote constantly!   And I am legit addicted to it.   I think slightly more adult oriented, and probably the fact they are essentially a typical 'rpg group' and it totally got me.   WATCH IT!  (Also watch Bee and Puppycat!)

Thanks Wolf!     See the answer to Raxie's stuff on where to watch this amazing cartoon!   But be mindful that some stuff will go over kids heads, but if they are perceptive and quick to pick things up, it's definitely adult themed in that regard.    Watch a few before deciding if the wolf pups are okay to watch along. :)
