    The Long Night

    I can eat carbs or eat beans and feel happy, but generally it's easier to get noodles/pasta/rice/potatoes outside then get enough beans/vegetables to make me happy. It's like, you can eat 15 meat dumplings or 6 meat dumplings and noodle soup. The first option would obviously cost quite a bit more... If I make a happy fruit pig out of myself, it's effects won't last very long, I still need protein of some kind.

    Onto other news. I went for a wee wander today. My car was left at the mechanics overnight. I arranged to pick it up today. So I decided to walk to town to pick it up. Just under 5k and nearly an hour later I was at the mechanics. Kept up a steady pace throughout the walk. I even wandered around town for a bit afterwards. My right knee is aching tonight, but that is more likely the cold rather than from my walk. I am fully confident in my ability to do the 10k in September. Even with my dodgy body.

    Good grief woman, you have been very ill. I hope this round of drugs works and you feel better soon! Giant hugs from here!

    I also have to keep a tight handle on what I watch (or games I play, or books I read) because I can get totally sucked in too. Way too easily

    Update - I am still very poorly. I don't think I have ever been this ill for this long before. I have more antibiotics with steroids this time. TH has made me promise I won't Benoit him and the cat although the opposite side to that side effect is chemical induced euphoria so fingers crossed for that - I haven't experienced that since 2003. I was talking to my mom this morning about the pain in my lungs and she told me to take paracetamol because ibuprofen interacts with the steroids. I told her the steroids interact with Nuvaring and she told me "oh well Deffy, you need to take them so you can get better". These are the words of a lady who clearly wants some grandchildren. On the plus side I am saving a fortune from not having to commute to work. I might jack it in #AusterityEconomics.
  15. Sorry for out-of-the-blue question (maybe answered somewhere here, but reading through 9 pages... no, I'm too lazy), but I noticed you are learning Icelandic. Do you have any course or just try to learn it by osmosis? Like this I visited Iceland last year's February and it was sooo great. And I want more of this. So, learning Islandic would be nice idea while gathering funds for another trip there.

    [DarK_RaideR #36] Balance is rarely a static case

    I am! It's not like we have a common account or money pool, but we do share expenses and keep track of our spending, though we still have the freedom of doing some (reasonable) spending of our own without checking for each other's permission first. In hindsight, she did have a point, I spent a large amount of money to pay off my debt plus I spent my monthly "family financial assistance" on groceries, bills etc which got me halfway into the month with nothing but a 5E bill in my wallet. It's not like we're broke, she can chip in for the rest of the month (plus I was counting on a little extra from the family) but it would have been wiser if I'd saved some to get me through the month as far as daily expenses go. To take that a step further, I can understand how such financial management on my part can stress her out and make her feel insecure. One day I got a few hundred in my pocket, then after a couple of days most of it is gone and worse, I can't remember where I spent most of it. The shock of the moment/amount, coupled with days of emotional duress after arguing is what got us. I'm happy to say the long weekend gave me some much needed mental clarity when it comes to both how I see our relationship's future and that monetary issue. In other news, I'm helping the SRLF's mom with a serious legal issue she's got and (I'm guessing instead of monetary payment) she got me a gig ticket, meaning I got to see Planet of Zeus, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Clutch last night!

    The Fat Man Shuffle

    Sorry about a bike, congrats on strength (after all, brake cable is steel wire). Aren't you able to fix it yourself? Changing a brake cable shouldn't be too hard, and synchronizing shifter is sometimes tricky, but nowadays there's tutorial video for anything. This way you could save some money and get some satisfaction from fixing your bike. Unless you are one of those people who can't tell Phillips screwdriver from pipe wrench... Then just suck it up and be more gentle next time Don't kick yourself too hard for this, maybe it was for good - by breaking your bike you avoided being captured by aliens that day. Cheers

    I just found an envelope with high school graduation photos and a couple my parents took before prom. I’m so mad now. It feels so stupid to say but goddammit I was pretty! And I never saw it. But now I’m looking back at these pictures and I would kill someone to be that girl again. Or at least the comparable version for my age. Ugh.

    As I can't see your expression nor hear your voice I may not catch a joke. Because it was a joke, right? ...RIGHT?! Shrug Anyway... report for June 19th: Nutrition: Breakfast - none Lunch - chicken stew, grilled veggies (cauliflower, broccoli, carrot frozen mix) - 696kcal, 98g protein Dinner - fried potatoes, stewed pork shoulder in gravy, tomato and cucumber salad - 957kcal, 51g protein Supper - smoked cod in lettuce - 111kcal, 25g protein Drinks - black coffee, water. Morning coffee with 100ml whole milk - 60kcal, 3g protein Total 1824kcal, 177g protein. I needed to skip my after workout protein shake, just to eat anything for supper. Didn't realize gravy is so caloric... sigh. Workout (strength): warmup - 5min elliptical 9 | 8 | 9 body rows from little above ground 3x circuit (20 squats with exercise band, 13 push-ups) - on first set of push-ups I just went full-on and did 20 reps! T W E N T Y ! ! ! And 15 on last. streching - bit of dynamic strech, bit of yoga poses Yeah, I just felt like - it's too easy, let's see what Im capable of. Needed longer rests between circuits tho to catch my breath and wasn't able to push my last number (17reps) on last set, but I'm happy as a clam anyway Oh, and since I haven't skip any workout since first one back in March, I decided to give myself a gift. I bought myself new running shoes

    The Long Night

    I don't know how you do it. Every time I eat carbs, I'm satiated for half an hour, then I start to feel hunger again. Or maybe not a real hunger, but this feeling of crave. Pasta gives me this feeling even faster - I finish my meal, look around and think "NOW I would like to eat something...". Grain based things (dumplings, bread) satiate for longer, but still comes this feeling. Only starchy food (potatoes and such) are okay with satiating for longer. Water tracking: coffee - 1.4 liter, water - 1.9 liter. 3.3 liter total. I'm surprised it's so much, I thought I drink less. Recipes: I used cottage cheese as a base for my ice cream. After blending it tasted quite well, I will check and report it after freezing. Next try - Greek yogurt.

    Week 4 Day 3 Is it week four? Geeze. I had a lot of cleaning I wanted to do today. I didn't. I was really exhausted when I got home. Had to close my eyes briefly. Ugh. But I did set up the watercress fountain, and planted it. It's sort of a planting experiment; if the seeds don't sprout this way, I'll start them hydroponically this weekend. Now I just have to wait forever. Oh, and I moved all the onions and garlic to a nice attractive basket with good airflow. And watered the garden. So sort of a garden day all day. But man, I needed to clean. I'm gonna have a late dinner and sleep instead.
