Sif: let's smash another year

✔️ 2. Do 1 push-up (any progression)

✖️ 3. Be in bed by 10 pm

✔️ 6. Take my medication

 

Yesterday was carb day, but I'm fine. Went for a walk instead of spinning, because of low energy and motivation. Got to talk with mom, which is always nice.

 

Because we were home late, I was in bed late. We also had to drag 130kg of cat litter into the basement. So I guess I had some strength training as well 🤭

It was a lot of individual packages which we could move 4 at a time. But still!

 

So this morning I slept in again. I'm less worried about it after yesterday's experience. Just that 45 extra minutes to properly wake up really help. Though I shouldn't make it a habit.

Iirc this was what I did.

I also wrote down some tasks I need to do in my BuJo. Finally offloading some stuff.

I'm still figuring out a better morning and evening routine.

 

After the last two days of sleeping in, this morning I was super energetic and easily getting out of bed!

I also was a lot less stressed about getting to work on time. Having the experience of being later really helped. 

 

Tonight is D&D night! This always has me excited!! We play very infrequently unfortunately, because of everyone being busy and we all only wanna play on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Because work.

Thanks! I did! It was a lot of fun again.

 

I'll type up my updates later. I'm tired and on my way home. We will exercise at home tonight. It was a busy/stressful weekend.

D&D was a lot of fun, session many in a row without combat XD we're finally keeping loot though. We're a very philanthropist party. Saved king's daughter can ask for whatever. Well ehm we would like to offer our services actually. Oh and maybe a bag of holding.

Thanks a bunch. Ring Fit Adventure is super fun and gives you quite a workout. I like it tons better than Wii Fit tbh.

Done Ring Fit Adventure! It didn't go very well. My body was somehow not up for it. 

Also I have rising stress levels and getting a problem with overeating again 🤔

Fasting managed. While going home eating myself up trying not to buy food. Unsure if it was boredom or stress, but it was definitely not hunger that was driving my desire to eat.

I was pretty cranky the rest of the evening too.

Finished watching Captain Marvel. Now watching End Game. (Having to watch a movie in 1 sitting is a lie!)

I really wish they would adapt this for XBox360, then I might just convince myself to play console. I really liked the video trailer of this game.

PMS? Sometimes I get munching and cranky when it is two weeks before that time of the month. Hope today was better all round for you.

Ohh I hate that song and dance :( I do that on the way in to work

 

Re:DnD... I have literally played only 1 intro session that was about 15 minutes 😮 I am nervous to play again because I was not very good haha its my best friend and me playing together. We were going to play over the holidays but I got sick and couldn't talk. I asked if she wanted to play tonight but shes busy lol gawd. But at least I made effort to initiate because I haven't since I have been so nervous. Tips for beginners?

I'm sorry, it's a fun game though very frustrating as well. The camera is not helping you. And it is set up as a ranged stealth game, but the game is happily dropping you into melee combat all the time. Which your character is not good at and the game isn't good at presenting/managing. So it's very hectic. So love/hate relationship there. I love the characters, setting and story, but I'm also very much done with it.

 

Ah haha. Well no. I don't have that time a month. I switched it off, lol. Because it was always so nasty for me. I haven't had any sort of problems with that for over a year now. No bleeding, no emo tripping, no nothing.

I have to find a way to manage it better. Let's stay strong together!

 

Ehm... Just do it more?! Lol.

Watch player tips videos on YouTube?

I watch more DM related topics, regardless I can highly recommend Matt Colville. I love his tips. (I'll edit this with a video link when I'm not on my phone)

Otherwise I'm kinda new myself 😋

Don't sweat it too much. Make sure you play with people who want to help you learn. 

Try to get used to how to play and then work on making more interesting characters. Or have your character slowly evolve when you get to know them better.

Right now I'm playing my second character and she's basically Elsa before Let it go. Though not so much personality wise lol, more what she can do and not having it all in control.

She actually has a backstory and such.

My first character was basically a cardboard cutout and without much of a backstory. She was just doing the plot, because plot. Which was fine. I learned how everything worked and I had examples to learn how to roleplay. At first I would just sit and watch for the most part and do my thing in combat. Later I slowly started to get more involved. 

Just figure it out slow and steady :)

not sure what else to say 😋

Finished watching End Game while cycling yesterday 😁

Forgot to do my push-up this morning, need to remember it later!

Also yesterday got the Witcher books!! They were delivered to my parents as my dad is always home. Super excited to start reading. And the coloring book is super neat! Now to get some more different colors and get started with that.

A bit busy, will post updates when I have a bit more time to type it all out ^^

 

Either way, I just saw an advertisement I have to share, cause it was cool.

 

It was an ad poster for the gym and it read.

"130kg too heavy? I'll be the judge of that!"

And then a picture of girl deadlifting a very heavy looking barbell. I liked it.

 

Anyway. Habits are going good. Thanks to the Witcher I'm all into reading now lol.

Yesterday I started a new death march (hardest) difficulty Witcher 3 game. I still wanna get that achievement. I know I can do it, first playthrough I went from story mode or whatever the easiest setting is called to death march halfway through. 

That also let me to picking up and finishing Dark Souls lol.
