    Meal Planning and Tracking Apps

    MyFitnessPal could do that for you. What I do is go into the recipes side of things and plug in all the recipes for foods I want to make. That week. (You can just import them from a website or do them by hand.) Once you have the recipes in place, plan what you are eating each day. For example, I know that every day this week I will be having my sausage casserole for breakfast and my Chicken & veggie meal for dinner.

    Wodanier's Battle Log

    App type journal or blog or other? I'm always looking for something to keep me honest. I think the MapMyFitness site is about as close as I can get so far.

    RogueLibrarian trains like a Jedi

    AHHH, yes to Good Omens cosplay! And yay for your 5k and nice weather. Sorry you're having a lot of brain weasels about writing for the LARP. That dang imposter syndrome. Can you trick yourself into pretending you're writing it for something else?

    Tobbe's 100 days of food freedom (part 2)

    Isabel Foxen Duke is on-point again! I'm not going to the beach because I don't want anyone to see me without my shirt on. So yeah, I probably need to challenge myself and do it anyway.

    The Long Night

    I had a big list of Things that I had been putting off, but two of them were the big ones that I immediately thought of when I saw this challenge item. I ended up doing a whole bunch of the Things on my list, but the two identified for this challenge got procrastinated. Again. Fail I at least got one of the two done today, though.

    That helmet is looking really good. Boo on the dress code drama, I have worked in a few places that were like your current environment but constantly so. Drove me nuts

That double weave though. Stopped by my parent's house to deliver a Father's Day card and acquire a small marble table that was languishing in the basement doing nothing to sit in the place of my precarious pillow mountain. Husband will need to re-bond the marble to the brass base, it popped off a while back. However, the size of it is perfect--height could be a little taller, but beggars and choosers and all that. Dad is having some trouble making time for the gym recently, but at least we're up to date on what he has done, so I'm counting that. Doing aaaaabsolutely everything you can up until the point where he has to make the call on whether an item stays or goes will increase the odds of success.

    Sara Kingdom Wears the Lilac

    Yeah, but also pineapples. Also, I may need to avoid this thread before I start doing research on how to grow my own home garden. I really don't need that, because I have the opposite of what people call a "green thumb" I can't even keep houseplants alive.

    Hiroro Gets Cooking

    Thanks. It's hard for me to separate actually needing rest from just being tired and making excuses, but I'm erring on the side of going easy for now. That's a good idea. I actually had a couple sips of wine in Italy (because when in Rome...). And I had a couple sips at my parents' because being sneaky. And when I faked it at the wedding I'm sure I consumed a tiny bit even though I was pretending. But I probably won't intentionally drink. I think my feelings about it are so depending about my mood at the moment, heh.

    Hiroro Gets Cooking

    Good to know it's not just me losing my mind, haha. Thanks. Should be better in a couple weeks. I just keep telling myself it could be worse - I could be puking multiple times a day...

    Asa Pond Recovers from the 10 Rings (Mark I)

    :(((( Ugh, that is very frustrating. Good call.

    Amaya Buckles Down

    I would love to do that - perhaps once my friend’s littlies aren’t so little [emoji23] But, honestly, I’m kinda welcoming it. It’s a good prep for a KonMari Style decluttering that will be happening in the near future.

    Elennare Makes it Count, Part 1

    It's fun watching kids as they pick up skills. Sometimes it seems they they just don't get it for a long time, but sometimes they learn so fast it is almost mind boggling

    TODO 2019 PvP [Jan 1 - Dec 29]

    I did try a new sport. Even recorded a video of it. Just need to find the time to write about it
  18. I took the quiz and came out 49.3% Hufflepuff, 25.5% Gryffindor, 25.2% Ravenclaw and 0.0% Slytherin. I was also assigned Hufflepuff on Pottermore

    Boo, muscle aches suck. Do you do stretches and warm ups before working out?

    Still made it before the gun, and grats on beating your elliptical time. Sorry to hear about the mental stuff; is that rooted in impostor syndrome, or something else entirely? !!!!! Please please please post pictures. Loved the book, love the series, would love to see the cosplay. Here's to a less stressful week for you.

    Mad Hatter navigates the event horizon

    I have a good number of friends who have gotten ADHD diagnoses as adults and some of them have found it really helpful for reframing their frustrations, learning strategies to deal with some of the things that crop up, etc. So there are options beyond medication and things if this does wind up being something you look into. ECHOING THIS. Yup. And remains one of my favorite concepts both in theory and execution.

    Mad Hatter navigates the event horizon

    Oh man, that would drive me completely bonkers. I don't know anything ADHD, but I think Tobbe asked the right question: if you were to find out that were ADHD, would it change anything?

    JustCallMeAmber and the brain

    it's so true. i just watched a call to action on healthcare professional "burnout" which the speaker relates the healthcare professional's morals back to their hands being tied by insurance companies. it's a mess. and it needs to change.
  24. Today
  25. I was in a meeting with my new boss in a conference room. One of the five fluorescent light fixtures flickered out while we were talking. I looked up, and in my best Picard voice I said: There are **FOUR** lights! He just stared at me. I laughed and said 'Sorry, from Star Trek:TNG.' He laughed and said yeah, it went off the air before he was born.

    MEN ONLY THREAD part two

    Shaving & beards. I have an opinion, but it's just me. I shave my head every other day. Not balding (maybe a getting a little thin right on top) but I have thick, curly hair. Anything longer than a high & tight and I end up with an ugly perm. I grew a handlebar mustache last year and I kind of like it. I may grow back my Van Dyke, and once I hit a lower weight, shave the handlebar. Also, and this is just me. A goatee is a style of facial hair incorporating hair on a man's chin but not his cheeks. A Van Dyke specifically consists of any growth of both a moustache and goatee with all hair on the cheeks shaven. No moustache = Goatee Moustache & beard = Van Dyke
