No one has ever seen the two together. I think it’s like Tyler Durden and the other guy.

 

tragically neither of them looks like Brad Pitt. Though they are both tall and skinny and eat carbs all fucking day and never gain weight. Freaks.

Natural hair looks good.  I think a lot of people are going to discover this.

 

My natural hair looks almost exactly like yours. Yet another way we are essentially twins.

Jeez. Take a shower and get a damn comb then. Except for the quarantine hair style, you’d look good with hair like mine.

Is it the taco thing that makes us twins?

I don't think you have to be small to do silks (if you wanted to do silks) though it probably does help to be able to pull much of your body weight (which I can't do). Aerial yoga uses a sort of sling, and doesn't require any of that kind of strength. It's just fun and you get to go upside down and stuff( though not usually as lounge-y as in that picture).

I'm sort of with you on the standing desk. I think it's a good idea, but you don't necessarily have to use it all day. I sort of built one out of boxes, and I just try to use it for 30-60 minutes a day. That's enough for me right now, and a lot more than I was doing.

I have this ongoing fantasy where I have a lofty-warehousey sort of office space of my own, and I have a pair of silks hung in the corner that I can fool around on to relax. I've always been fascinated by them. Someday...

Monday was an okay day. I started my new macros - to soon to see what it does, obviously, but it was very tasty. I bought a box of hair dye (and grocery shopped in general). Did office work for a lot of the day and worked out in the evening - it was leg day so I did:

 

3x5 dumbbell squats (35# dumbbells)

3x10 dumbbell deadlifts (same weights)

hip thrust 3x20 #10 bar

walking lunge, one set of six

 

Then I walked a mile.

 

I haven't done walking lunges in a long time, they are really awful. Maybe worse than burpees? I have burpees on the schedule for Wednesday so I'll be able to compare.

'

Yesterday and today I woke up naturally, today at 7 and yesterday at 7:45, but the night before last that huge storm came through so I was awake part of the night, like from 3-5 am.

 

I legitimately can't remember what I wore yesterday. Pants? Maybe? 

 

Today I think I will work in the garden a bit, I have some plants to put in and I need to weed the butterfly garden. I have a recipe to try in the crockpot that I'll start in a few minutes. 

 

My scheduled workout is the tire flip/sledgehammer, but lacking both those items at home I will load up the barbell and do "DT" instead, which is next on the list. I can't control what I have, but I can work within what I've got. 

 

After today life will get a little weirder still, because my boyfriend got laid off and he'll be home all the time. We're both a little nervous about this. 

 

I still have that weird feeling of not being able to wrap my mind around everything that's happening (which everyone is dealing with, not just me) I keep feeling like I'm in a surreal dream and I need to wake up. It's weird too because I normally work at home with big unpaid stretches and so this shouldn't bother me as much as it does, but I feel just as unsettled as people I know who are working from home for the first time. Is it okay to take a lunch break? Can I send emails earlier? Are there ethics involved with using the stapler? So confusing.

Most of the bad stuff was either north of us (in Tennessee) or further south. Our house is just to the east of metro atlanta, which serves as a giant windbreak for our area.

I'm really sorry about your boyfriend and I hope you don't get under each other's feet too much. 

 

Technically he's furloughed, not fired, but I have my doubts about him going back; the owner of the restaurant chain he works for decided to do without management during lockdown, and I'm guessing he'll decide it's more profitable to continue that way (with only part-time hourly employees) when we come out the other side. It's human nature. They'll just assign management tasks to the most responsible hourly person and clean up what they fuck up. 

 

eta: I'm trying not to be negative because he finds it annoying, but sometimes you just have to look at things in the most practical way or you don't get anywhere.

what day is it? Thursday, yes.

 

ETA: dammit, it’s Wednesday. We just HAD this conversation on @DarK_RaideR‘s page. 

 

 

Yesterday turned out to be an excellent day for napping. I napped. I also made a new worm composter from a rubbermaid tub so my worms could have a nicer house. I don't know that they care.

 

 

Today I worked from home a bit (not like there is an alternative) then I met my trainer from the gym at a local high school and worked out. It was great. We did mostly shoulders and lats, then some legs (box squats and lunges). I felt good about supporting him while the gym is closed. Then I came home and worked a bit more, then watched a video about job hunting, and now I am eating some pasta/meat sauce that I made over rice. Boyfriend is eating chicken with rice and 

 

Last two days I have continued to sleep until I naturally wake up; I wake up almost exactly at 7 due to the sun (my bed is by the eastern window). 

 

I ate pretty close to my new macros yesterday, but then had a bagel as a late night snack and threw it off. Today I just ate whatever, I wasn't paying attention.

 

I wore workout clothes all day today. Stretchy!

 

Haven't done anything with my hair, looking more like a shetland pony every day. I found out today from my trainer that Bridget, the bodybuilder girl I'm so impressed with at the gym, does hair. I always thought she was a nurse. I may have to get her to cut my hair when we can do such things again. Support the gym fam.

today has been frustrating. I slept okay but woke up later than expected (7:30 ish) and then laid around for another hour before I actually got up. I feel very unfocused today and my shoulders hurt (from workout, not sunburn; that is just mildly irritating) 

 

My adventure race guy called me this morning and gave me a laundry list of things he wants me to do, and I can't think of a tactful way to point out that he stopped paying me three weeks ago and if he wants me to promote his races he kind of needs to get up off some cash. Then my mom called me, which was great, but she was all freaked out because my batshit sister called her and told her that if she has to go on Medicaid (my mother has been in the hospital for two months and is now midway through rehabilitation to be able to go home) the government will seize her social security and force her into a nursing home. I have no idea if this is even true, but WHY in god's name would you tell an eighty-year old woman struggling to recover from heart surgery something like that, other than to create drama and freak people out? Now my mom is losing her mind and I had to spend half an hour talking her off the ledge. WHY IS EVERYTHING SO DIFFICULT.

 

 

Also I have a headache. Plus I can't find the book I'm supposed to be studying.

 

I put on adult clothes. It's not helping. I think I am just going to bag the afternoon and go for a walk (wearing a shirt that covers my sunburn)

 

arrrrrgh. I know everyone is on a rollercoaster right now but today has been exceptionally difficult.

Send him an invoice for what he owes you with a polite note no new work will be done till he pays for the old work.

 

Also, your sister is...exasperating. If your mom is 80 she should already be on Medicare, and medicaid wouldn't be necessary.

She is, my sister’s concern is that her benefits will run out and she’ll be wheeled out to the curb on a gurney and left to fend for herself. But really it’s that she (sister)

 loves making these scenes and stirring up this drama. She was completely estranged from the family until this all happened and she re-inserted herself and immediately started making trouble. I kind of wish she’d vanish again.

Longshot, but your sister isn’t a cyclist named Jenny is she? Mrs. Sloth has a crazy friend who is doing that exact same thing.

I demand kegstand pics.

 

She’s not, but she was a hardcore triathlete until she snapped in the middle of a race and threw her bike into the ocean and gave all her gear away after she got home. Being extra runs in the family.

Today is less wretched than yesterday, but not completely on the ball yet. I got a few things done at least.

 

I bought a couple of books the day before yesterday and was feeling bad about it. One was educational, but I already had it and I just couldn't find it and I got annoyed and bought the kindle version. I justified it by noting that it's the 2020 edition and the other edition was 2008 and it's a job hunting book so I felt it was worth the $11. The other was on gardening and was completely unjustified but I like it. Then today I got an email saying I was getting a $25 rebate on my car insurance, so it balanced out and now I can feel no guilt. Which is good because I found the old version this morning.

 

I also started a weird thing today. I'm embarrassed to admit it but I signed up to be an instacart shopper. I don't have any other work right now (except the adventure race stuff which is proving difficult to get paid for) so I thought, what the hell. Today was my first shop. I made $11 there, so the job hunt book is paid for either way 😉

 

I walked a mile yesterday and kind of stared at the lake for a bit.

 

how are my test-the-questions going, you ask? Let's check!

 

- blonde hair: bought the dye, haven't actually done the deed. The brunette color I got  was on the shelf next to a fetching purple/magenta shade and it was a very close decision. 

 

- Fat in your diet makes you fat: Bit soon to tell, I'm down a couple but I fluctuate a lot depending on what I've shoved down my gullet in the last 12 hours so I need another week to get a real data set. [makes happy cheese noises]

 

- Early bird gets the worm: I can tell you that the non-early bird does not get her day started until 10 am, so this may have to be a bullet I'm willing to bite. It takes me forever to get going in the morning so if I sleep until 8 I'm not really useful until noon.

 

- You have dress up to be successful - conflicted. On the one hand, pajamas all day! On the other hand, I do seem to have better work focus if I dress like an adult. today I am wearing very loose white linen pants and a blue shirt and I actually put on makeup this morning. Just tinted moisturizer and eyeliner, but still. I also put on a very dark red lip crayon, and I don't know if it's just because I don't ever wear lipstick that dark (I bought it on impulse a few weeks ago) or if I'm just not used to seeing myself in lipstick but the effect was horrifying, like something out of the Joker. I immediately washed it off. Now my lips are naked. (I'm just saying that for deffy's amusement.)

 

A standing desk makes you more efficient - I cleared most of the shit off my desk, but haven't done the standing desk yet. Cleaning my office is next week's big project. I'm mostly working at the patio table. 

 

Snacks are bad: Are they? - currently snacks are mostly cottage cheese with pineapple, which is low-carb but unbearably boring. Need to tart it up a bit.

 

- You can't get brutally strong AND have aerobic endurance: A work in progress. It's 143 days until my home-made adventure race over Labor day weekend (assuming we haven't resorted to cannibalism and aren't living in caves by then) so I gotta hop to this. I'll do crossfit today. 

 

You know, it would be an AMAZEBALLS proof-of-life test if I made myself do a crossfit workout before each segment of that adventure race.

 

I'm still fooling with how to structure my days right now because everything seems so weird, especially with the boyfriend around all the time, but I'll hopefully be a bit more focused next week. Really glad it's the weekend tomorrow so I can do some work in the garden. It was very prescient for me to pick gardening up as a hobby again right before we all got trapped in the house. 

 

I took on another project that is slightly insane, please don't judge. 

 



 

I keep saying I need to find another career, and I was thinking I might go into career coaching because I'm good giving people stellar advice that I do not, ever,  follow myself. I had offered to do a resume for a couple of people in a facebook group and I offered to do a coaching session with anyone who was interested, and one girl took me up on it. So I'm going to coach her for a couple of weeks and see how it goes. It's a freebie so if it's a disaster she won't be out anything. At least she'll get a new resume.

 

 

Really want a doughnut.

I’ve started to get semi-dressed. An ADHD guide said I’d do better if there was more of a transition between home brain and work brain. So I’m testing putting on and taking off a collared shirt.
