I am loving the dating challenge!

 

Yay for your back feeling better and getting back to the 15kg bar!

Thanks, I was incredibly excited about the bar!

 

You and me both I think biting off more than we can chew on the adulting front.

Yeah, I just had to modify my challenge a bit to make it more sane.  Whee!

 

Well, sometimes you spit it out and see how much will fit in your mouth.

Yep!

 

So that habatica thing.... Looks really awesome!  I just joined :)

Oooh cool!  It's much more fun if you can get a good party to join.  It definitely keeps you accountable!

And we continue to move along with the updates...
 

Week 1.5:

 
Friday started out with me waking up 1 hour before my alarm and not being able to get back to sleep. So, I decided to get my strength workout in, and knock out most of my daily tasks before work. It's a great feeling, and I really need to do this more, if I can get through being so tired.
 
It's a good thing I did get that all done, as Friday was also a long busy day at work.  Instead of my usual 2 meetings on Friday, and the rest of the day available to catch up on the week, I had back to back meetings starting at 9 am through 3 pm.  By the time 3 pm came around, all I wanted to do was sleep, because I was again exhausted.  So I did. 
 
I had my hair cut/color appointment in the early evening, and it turned out amazing.  The cut was the same, but I'd asked for the color to have a subtle purple cast to it, and my stylist did an amazing job with it!  You can't tell at all in bright light / indoor lighting, so if I have to go downtown for a meeting or something, I'm good.  It just looks like darker brown hair.  But in natural lighting (although not full on sun), it definitely looks purple!
 
I've also changed my rest day for decluttering to Friday, because honestly, all I want to do is curl up under the covers on Friday nights.

Week 1.6:

 
Got up and went to weightlifting class. I was still working on relatively light weights, so my 90% was not really 90% but I didn't care.  It was definitely 85% of what I could do without re-injuring my back. But I went up to 20kg, so hey, progress!
 
I decided to go get my prescription checked; I've been having more issues with headaches when working on the computer, and I've noticed I need my distance glasses more often.  The good news is I don't need bifocals (woo!), but I did get a pair of computer glasses.  I'm hopeful it will help with my eyestrain, but I feel like I need to get an old-lady chain for my glasses as I can't wear them while not staring at the computer.
 
Then it was home, declutter, and then to bed to sleep, as I was exhausted.

You sound incredibly busy! We all know what it's like to bite off a little more than we can chew.. even with one day less of weightlifting you've still got 2 entire mouthfuls to work through :D 

Hope your date goes well and is enjoyable!

I would like to see pics of this awesome hair color!  Sun and non sun please.   :)        Weekend are hard to update on, but that's where I find that Habatica is really helpful for me.  I can keep up with things I need to do, and not worry too much on the updating NF.   Though, that IS actually one of my dailies on Habatica, so I dropped the ball twice this week on that hah.

 

Seems like you're chugging along nicely though!

Whoa, I never would have thought to do a dating life quest... but probably should! Definitely looking forward to hearing about either a great date, or a great awful story! (It always seems to be one of those two...)

 

The date actually went well. We met up at the (free) zoo, and walked around.  The zoo closed about an hour after we got there, which was good for me and my anxiety.  We walked around a bit after to see the outdoor animals after the buildings closed, and the gorillas put on a great show for us.  

 

Here we are, reading about how they rest all the time, and they went ahead and spent 20 minutes or so roughhousing around, beating their chest and all that!  The sound is a bit odd - like they have hollow chest plates.

 

Anyway, perhaps there will be a second date, we'll see.

Old lady chains are totally acceptable. I'm in college and I (might or might not) have one. 

 

okay, so where would one theoretically get one of these chains?  I looked on amazon and, meh.

Zoo date! That sounds like fun! A good dating philosophy seems to be to do things on a date you'd want to do anyway, and that definitely qualifies! Plus, gorillas have a way of making every day more enjoyable. 

 

Maybe for a slightly trendier eyeglass chain option, do a necklace with an open pendent (e.g. one or two - not to recommend those specific ones, but the concept)? What kind of old lady chain would you want? Most longer necklaces with a clasp could probably be easily modified, too. (You've got my old jewelry-making brain whirring now...)

I think I'd rather have the leash - remembering to put it in an open pendant is sometimes too much for me :)

 

Etsy. Duh, of course :)

It's the 21 day sugar detox.  I'm doing level 1 with the energy modification, which allows for a cup of lentils/starches a day (at least).

Oh the date sounds like it worked out just about perfect for the anxiety/pushing past nerves things.    High five.  Well done!   :)
