Everanything: Target Locked.

Recommended Posts

Finally caught up on sleep over the weekend. Hoping to get into running and lifting soon, if the anxiety cooperates. Thursday morning, Ifrit and I hung out all morning, talking and dismantling VHS together. I was gleefully smashing them with a hammer to get into the spools, until he began calmly unscrewing the tape case itself. His method was...far faster, if less fun.

 

With the VHS gone, all the anime and games are now in the back room, so the tall (ratty and left over from previous house occupants but clean so we used it) shelf unit went to the neighbors. The guy next door actually hollered at Ifrit, asking if it was being left out for garbage, and when he was answered affirmatively, jogged over and lugged it into his house. Whatever! MY clutter is your treasure, haha!

 

I want to start on my clothes soon, I do, but I know there are bound to be some hang-ups there. "Oh, this was a present, it's so nice, hold onto it!" I ick those feelings, but I'm preparing myself to deal with them.

It's for the cake.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The cake is a lie.

 

But...but...I love cake. Are cupcakes tiny lies?

 

Thank you again for the article! Weirdly, it's made me want to purge my craft stash soon, and let go of some attachments to the things I've made.

Lots on your plate this week!  I wish I was being as productive with the decluttering - I haven't even started!  Congrats on a good week one, and a relaxing weekend.  Be sure to make exercising a priority this week so it doesn't get way-laid again!

For exercise, I find that just telling myself I can do it for a few minutes and stop is a great way to get started. The hardest part is starting, so once you overcome that hurdle, you tend to keep going.

You don't get better at anything unless you start doing it.

Being alive is heckn swell.

Everything else is making good progress but the working out. I know activity is only one part of a challenge, along with diet and personal growth, but it's the easiest to get waylaid.

 

So true! I tend to put it off and then the day is suddenly over and I deem it too late to work out. I try to fight this and have been seen doing my workout at 9pm but I'd rather just make room for it in the daylight hours... ah well, there's always room to improve. Oh and what NTB said is also true, getting started takes the most effort ;)

 

Good luck with your goals and that to-do-list this week. I really like the minis so far :D

I am loving my minis. It really helps to have that check-list, and move things over when they haven't gotten done.

 

If I work out, it really needs to be during daylight hours, because the treadmill is in the basement room with a broken light, so once the sunlight is gone, it's super creepy in there.

 

It's less a matter of getting started or 'letting it get waylaid' than simply having the spoons. If my anxiety has left me sore and wound-up and tired that day, it's not happening. I don't like hearing 'Just get some movement, the endorphins will make you feel better!' That is some people's biology. It is not mine.

Ahhh makes sense.  Sorry, didn't realize - as you said, everyone's different!  

 

Sounds like you're doing great with sticking to your macros and the reading challenge!

It's got something like 300 RSVP so far, even if half that shows up, we'll be taking over most of the park already. I'm actually super nervous, I've never gone to a group shoot before.
