    Longterm Goals/ Find The Fantastic Beasts-

    Talked to my husband about the garage project and how to tackle it. I think our plan is to just take some weekends and work on it together.

    haha, yeah, I've heard of those too! The biggest problem I've been having is that my fiance HATES alarms, so I use my apple watch and have it on vibrate. So trying to find an app that vibrates on my wrist that also makes me get up. ha, a volume challenge on movements I can actually do (well, kind of, I'll have to do ring pushups)? I'm in.

    Elastigirl Has A Joy Filled Challenge

    Had lunch while reading on Kindle, stayed away from computer Ate slow- didn't think to time it though Had a snack and ate it distraction free. I bought myself a dark chocolate bar for Easter (everyone else got bunnies) and I had one square of it. Eating it distraction free helped me be satisfied with one square. Practiced crow, did some kettlebell swings 100 25# swing with very little break, and then went on a walk. My MFP goal was 1,300 and I ended up eating 1,400. That is about a 400 calorie deficit. Not sure if doing the kb swings helps or not, since I just get hungrier. Here is a video of my praciticng the crow. I am mainly just working at finding the balance point.

    jstanlick vs. The Hydra

    I wonder if the story will eventually be that dad made them run up hill in the snow and it was a 10 mile run to the park. It was 2 blocks and 71 degrees, but that won't make as good a story

    Sara Kingdom Narrowly Avoids the Scorpion Pit, Pt. 2

    My brain is at about 70% capacity right now, so I'm just going to say hooray for a good taqueria nearby, and I hope things with Vetinari aren't as serious as the seem. Then again, there is coffee. Coffee is not usually the last meal of the condemned. Then again, one must get on with the times, I suppose...

    So what I'm learning from this thread is that Jack Handy is trying really hard to be a modern Mark Twain. Hi!

    Maigs Chases the Wagon

    Tuesday Not quite so good on the food today. I had my normal breakfast and another unnecessary granola bar in the morning (why did I even grab one?). Lunch was leftover chili then I ran to the grocery store to grab something for Hubs and managed to talk myself into pomegranate and vanilla cashews and a two pack of Reese's eggs which were promptly eaten. Then mid-afternoon I grabbed one of the mini ice cream cups and ate it. After work I came home and made Peanut Stew for dinner and stuck to one bowl, then went out for another run. I had extra motivation to take it slow and not push myself, I did not want to have to breathe through my mouth because the bugs are out in full freaking force. Even though it wasn't super bright I wished I'd had my sunglasses to help keep the things out of my eyes. I ended the day right around 2000 calories.
  15. I'm fully behind that. For me, it's a matter of balancing the amount of boundaries pushing with some more relaxing time. Sometimes, I try to go for my goals and push my boundaries in whatever I do. Sometimes, I just allow myself to call it enough and take an easier time, needed to regenerate the willpower I need to keep pushing through.
  16. From what I've heard Atlanta can be crazy expensive anyway! It will be awesome if it works out

    Shello Attempts a Comeback

    Monday During my Monday morning weigh in my scale decided to remind me how I ate like an asshole all weekend. But whatevs. It's temporary. My weekend asshattery also made it easier to fast until lunch. I didn't bring anything for lunch since I was supposed to have lunch with DDG but he had a conflict. I grabbed a pizza and a rice krispy bar from the cafeteria instead. The food was good but the company wasn't near as good as it would have been. DBE struck again in the afternoon. He needs a new name, partly because it feels too similar to DDG and that's where the similarity ends but also because it just doesn't do him justice. twatwaffle? dickhole? Maybe I need to start a poll. His shenanigans made it difficult to stay focused at work the rest of the day. I went to the gym for my first non-bootcamp workout. They post a WOD and then I can just use drop in hours. I really liked the environmont. Everyone is going at their own pace but the trainer/owner is there the whole time kicking ass and being supportive. The workout wasn't as intense as boot camp but today my shoulders are killing me. Ice or heat? Today's WOD 3x10 DB squats, BB cleans 3x 20 v-ups, something else I can't remember 3x10 KB swings, squat thrusters 3x10 TRX rows, 10 v-ups 3x 1min plank, 10 pushups, 20 mountain climbers, 30 jumping jack planks I wasn't starving when I got home but I was a bit obsessed with food so I figured I should just eat. Instead of 2 tacos I just had 1 for the time being, thinking I could have another later. But Qbert couldn't finish his mac and cheese before scouts so I finished off the last bit. After dropping him at scouts I stopped and grabbed Peach a Frenchie from Jimmy Johns. She couldn't finished that either so I finished off the last bit. I no longer needed a second taco. But I did make room for another piece of carrot cake.

    Ye Ranger Guilde Halle in the North [General Chat]

    RES slips in late, orders her usual Irish coffee (heavy on the coffee this time, need something to keep me awake) and spots her friend Thom at a table with Morag. Hoping she's not interrupting she moves to join them.

    Rookie Goes Potatoes!

    No clue what happened here ^ but oh well lol good old mobile. I ordered some pants and boots from Zulily to use for my costume. They came in today! So I have giant calves... The biggest. So I was cautiously optimistic got the boots. Pants fit great and are comfortable. The boots do not fit my calves and one is missing a zipper pull right out of the box they would of been perfect in appearance too. They aren't returnable but I'm hoping they make an exception or give me a refund. If I'm stuck with them I might try adding laces to the back. Oh and I got my taxes sent to the accountant finally... With 6 days to spare.. I really left it last minute this time.

    I just have the lease contract to finish writing up then they need to sign it. Doh if I knew I was the one writing it I would of done it today and gave them it along with the insurance application paper to sign. Oh well.
  22. Sweet! Will see what scheduling ends up like. I haven't nailed down a hotel and flights yet. First few hotels were stupid expensive, possibly because people were booking for Dragon Con the week before at the time.

    Bean Si Vs. Chaos – Just Survive

    Did you hear me screeching in rage from all the way over here? Because I did. Christ on a cracker I fucking hate your people and all of this is so fucking wrong. Echoing what Severine and Countess said because you are a badass and you're crushing your shit even if you don't think so.
  24. Day 2 - Did the things! So, the day went well from a NF perspective. Got up, did my walk, logged my food. I also did some of my Better Brain Solution reading, and created some action items. I make you aware of this amazing work of art (which contains no spoilers): Exercise Points: 26/100 Food Points: 31/100
  25. Not familiar with them but would be up for a nerd meet up if schedules allow since season would be over

    Akari keeps moving forward

    I make slowly progress. Really slow. My French isn't actually that bad. I still know a lot. But it's only useful for translation, can't speak actively. Currently I read a children's book in French
