Hokay. So. Here's Mir.

 

Background:

Been a lifter on and off since early 2011. Or 2012. Hell if I remember. I'm getting old.

 

Struggled with depression for most of my adult life; recently came to the realization that I suffer from ADHD as well. Last couple of challenges I had to jump through a ton of hoops to get treatment, but I'm now on some medications that seem to be working (Prozac 40mg and Adderall XR 10 mg [which will probably be bumped to 20 mg when I see the dr...whenever I see him]).

 

Last challenge I finally got a solid base going on. No zero days, forgiving myself for my failures, and remembering to thank my past self for doing the things she didn't want to do so present me didn't have to do them, and trying to keep future me in mind when there was something I was dragging my feet on.

 

Near the end of last challenge, suddenly we decided to talk to a realtor. So now our house is going up on the market THIS WEEK and we are beginning to look at houses closer to where we work (right now is about a 40 min commute and we are sick of it). It's all happening way too fast, and I've never bought a house or sold a house before so I'm in completely uncharted territory. This past weekend was spent getting the house in show-ready condition. If I'm not lazy, I'll take some pics of our immaculate house for y'all. If I am, maybe I'll just link to the MLS. Only then you'll all know where I live. And there are probably stalkers on the internet. So maybe not.

 

ANYWAY, other things that are going well:

 

weight loss. I didn't have it as a goal last challenge, but it IS a goal. Since the beginning of the year-ish, I've lost 15 lbs-ish. I'm hoping for another 5 or so and then I plan to reevaluate and see if I want to lose 5-10 lbs more. I'm getting close! Hooray!

 

work. Still a struggle, but I've been doing MUCH, MUCH better about being focused while I am here. Yes, here. I am typing this at work because I need a small mental break. And I keep getting harassed about making a challenge *cough*Raev and Chairbrokey*cough*. And it's good that I've been more focused because HOLY HELL AM I BUSY. Between work and house stuff, I haven't been to the gym on lunch. In like three weeks. Seriously. And I'm considering taking my PC home tonight and/or this weekend because I have a LOT to do. And I haven't been having too much trouble getting to work on Mondays. I did miss Tuesday, July 8, because I don't know why, but at least I went into work on Friday to make up for it so I didn't use as much sick time. I also used sick leave on Monday, June 23, but again I made up for some of it later that week. Before that, it was May 27.  And again I made up some time. So yeah, I mean that's a lot, but not nearly as much as it was. And I have almost 20 hours of sick time banked (wooo). Seriously, huge accomplishment.

 

Things that aren't going well:

 

workouts. I've been too busy at work and with the house search, as stated above, but I've also been making excuses. I want to step it up, but at this point I'm unwilling to make it a challenge goal. I just want to keep it in the back of my head.

 

planning for Japan. Eek. That is all.

 

WITH ALL THAT BEING SAID.

 

Challenge goal #1: JUST DON'T DIE. (with apologies/thanks to Blueberries)

 

I can't believe how stressed I am about selling the house. For serious. So this will be about managing my stress levels. I'm not good at that. In a crisis (or other stressful situation), I'm a whiz. Until I get overloaded, and then I shut completely down. Like, can't get out of bed completely. I don't want that to happen. Hence the goal.

 

Challenge goal #2: KEEP THE HOUSE SHINY.

 

Seriously, this is THE WORST goal for me. I am not good about keeping on top of household things. Now all of a sudden not only do I have to do things like wash the dishes and put away laundry DAILY (when I'm normally a once a week kinda gal), I have to remember to do stupid shit like keeping the toilet lids down, making the bed EVERY DAY (I never ever make the bed), probably emptying our trash daily and vacuuming on the regular because you never know when someone is going to request a showing. I cannot overstate how horrible this goal is going to be for me. No I'm not being overdramatic. 

 

Challenge goal #3: DON'T EAT LIKE AN ASSHOLE.

 

I'm usually good on this front. I haven't been tracking calories lately because with all the med stuff, I just haven't been hungry. So many days I'm only eating one meal a day. NOTE: Please no one yell at me about this.  My energy levels have been fine (actually GREAT, to be honest) and I'm not wasting away or anything. I'm assuming at some point the side effects will wear off to the point that I have an appetite again. In the meantime, I'm riding the coaster. Or whatever.

 

Uh. And then hopefully I can get back to the gym on the regular.

 

That's pretty much it. I'm ready to go home and have a bottle of wine now.

It's #bathwine. Get it right. Winebath is a tooooooooootally different thing.

 

Also I should probably not use my tub for the next few weeks. Because once I'm finished with bathwine, the last thing I want to do is clean out the tub.

I'd drink my bathwater and wind up all wrinkly and purple. And probably pass out.

See, this is what I would be concerned with if I had a winebath.

#beershower

#showerbeer.

 

Didn't I show you that pic of me looking deranged with showerbeer during the nerdette weekend? It's on my phone. I'll post it here later.

 

Following!

 

I'm stressed just moving out of my current apartment... I can't imagine trying to sell and buy a house right now.  Good luck!

 

IT'S SO CRAZY OMG.

#showerrum

 

So many awesome things happening right now!  House stuff is scary to me.  

 

I mean even the Bee Gees are rootin' for ya. #stayin'alive  ah ah ah ah

This I approve of.

 

And house stuff is terrifying. But if I have the Bee Gees on my side, I think I'm good to go!

If you can tell me with a straight face that you didn't have to crop that picture, I... won't believe you.

Believe or disbelieve all you want! If I had cropped it, I probably would have gone a liiiiiiiiiiiiiittle more modest.

 

Oh who am I kidding. Of course I wouldn't have. 

 

No boobs = no problem.

The day I realized that the shampoo rack could also be a beer holder... It was a good day.
