[Cat Takeover] Owlet: Eat, Purr, Sleep

Recommended Posts

It is time...

For the much talked about

CAT TAKEOVER CHALLENGE!!!*

*Can you tell I'm excited?

Alright here goes. The goals: (warning, many gifs to follow)

 

Eat:

hungry-cat-gets-big-fish-breakfast-catur

Cat's gotta eat after all. 

Breakfast - don't skip it. Can be fruit and veges and nuts from work or oatmeal with fruit and nuts (weekends) occasional treat breakfast (croissant)

Lunch should be filling and healthy. Ideally leftovers from home. Cook most nights and cook extra.

Avoid refined carbs (bread, pasta, etc) as much as possible (cats don't eat carbs duh) exceptions allowed when out with friends etc and only limited options are available. 

 

Purr:

Things that make me happy.

Chant everyday - definitely morning, bonus for evening.

Paint/art 2x per week. 

Plan holiday, lock in dates, apply for leave. 

Activity/movement - physio, standing, bbw workouts? walks, runs? yoga?  stretching? Haven't quite decided yet.

Sleep:

This is actually the goal I'm most interested in and will probably find the hardest. But I think if I can crack the sleep game it will help me do better in literally all other areas of my life.

Morning routine - wake early, drink a glass of lemon water, chant 30 minutes, get ready for work.

Evening routine - no laptop after 10m, bed by 10:30, lights out 11:30. Sweet dreams.

Offerings of cat tax gladly accepted!

Here to stalk again :)

 

I've been meaning to ask you for a while already: what chants do you sing? I'd love to chant more, too and am looking for new ones. Do you chant the same ones every day? Did you learn them at your Buddhist meetings or do you have any albums you use and can recommend?

 

Best of success with all the sleepies! Oh and with getting through your Monday :D

Oh man I just realised I got the title wrong - I was going to change it before I hit publish but of course I forgot. Not that it matters really, it's all about the cats.

Following! :) The theme is great! There's a lot we can learn from cats :'D

It's true. I keep thinking of more cat goals I want to add. Maybe all challenges will be cat challenges now lol.

Always the same and very simple to learn: 'Nam myoho renge kyo'. Each word has many meanings/translations but the main interpretation is 'I dedicate my life to the mystic law of the Lotus Sutra'.  It is the principle that those who live normal lives and make consistent efforts will duly triumph.

 

I got through Monday! Wooh! 10 hours at work followed by 2 hours at life drawing. I'm done.

Your challenge is awesome. I look forward to seeing how you do. Let me know if I can support you in any way.

 

Do predatory cats count?

Haha derp. So you can. Oh well, I kind of like it now so I might just leave it anyway. Good to know though!

Oh my goshh I want to cuddle this cat so bad. Look how cuddly it is! I am so cat-clucky it's ridiculous. I realise this challenge is not going to help that...

 

 

Alarm went off at 7am today but I didn't get up til 7:30. I think I need to actually get up at 7 so I can make it to work around 8:30. Ugh. Did not turn my laptop off before 9:30pm yesterday either, partly because I only got home at 9:30 but also because that is just really early. Might change that goal to 10pm. Went to sleep at a good time at least.

 

OK Tuesday, let's do this.

There's another version of this with a caption that contains some obscenities to the the rhythm of his paw movements. Now I can't unsee it.

The last couple of days I've opened a window when it has been around 5C outside for this specific reason. It is finally getting warm enough I can open for a little while. The only thing I don't like about the winter is how cold it gets if I want some fresh air inside... ^^

I think I took the cat thing to heart more than necessary - basically went nocturnal last night. No idea why - I didn't do or eat/drink anything differently to normal and I didn't have anything particular on my mind, just could not sleep. Ugh. Morning routine was pretty much non-existent because I slept in. Now I'm grumpy and getting annoyed at little things like my flatmate telling me to do things I was about to do anyway (call the phone company because they messed up our bill wooo) 

 

Ok deep breaths. Drink the coffee... mm coffee...

 

I think I need to get more exercise. That should help with sleep right? I just keep not having time ugh. Even tonight, which is my only 'free' night all week, is now filled up with going to test drive a car and then preparing a study to give at tomorrow's Buddhist meeting. Not complaining - I've actually quite enjoyed being busy recently - just makes it hard to exercise. Hopefully the weather improves again soon so I can do stuff at lunchtime. Hmm.. This post is so rambling lol. I need a cat nap.

In other news, beehive and honey theft is on the rise and police believe organised gangs are responsible. Just another day in paradise ;)
