Today is grey. Grey and wet and I feel weird. Both hungry and full, tired and restless. Generally speaking, I’m glad that, unlike yesterday, I don’t have anything pressing to attend to today, but I also feel like I should be attending to something. I feel bored and longing for input, but I don’t feel like doing anything. To try to force this feeling away, I’m again going to paste my weekly list and I am going to try to accomplish something on it just now. And if I can’t, then maybe at least looking at it will have an effect. Also, there’s the daily list to attend to…it’s these things that I’m particularly unmotivated for, but after having a look at my weekly list, I’m going to go on a long walk.
I dunno, maybe I’m just lonely today and want Bear here. Maybe nothing will feel right without Bear. But hey, it’s already close to 2pm which means I’ve squandered much of today which means I’m closer to the end of the day, and seeing Bear again, than it seems. Yay?
edit: I did a long walk with Cosmo, and we went by that Trump sign that bothers Bear so much. I had Cosmo pee on it. I took a photo of him peeing. I posted the photo on Facebook. Yes, I am proud of myself.

Happy Halloween! More significantly, happy last-day-of-October! Everyone seems to agree: this year has flown by. Anyway, I have a lot to do today, and I just want to jot down the important things here so I can manage my time. Continue reading “The daily to-do: Monday October 31st”
WELL! I have been really bad at keeping up-to-date here, but I felt like posting this morning because I have been pretty productive. Yesterday I worked on resumes and applied to two jobs. I am pretty pleased with the state of my resume(s), and this has given me the confidence to apply to more jobs. I applied to like 7 more this morning. Perhaps nothing will come of them, but I have had such trouble taking even that step lately (maybe always). So, I’m feeling pretty good.
I am not feeling good about my body. I am sure that I have put on several pounds, and I’m scared to weigh myself. Probably I put on like 7 pounds, and I really hate the feeling. I’ve been bothered by this, but not enough to really do anything about it, for a few months now. It’s been a slow gain, peppered by periods of loss, but overall a steady gain. After I ran the half marathon 10 days ago, I was feeling pretty good, like that could be the point of turnaround, but I took several days off running for recovery, and I kind of “celebrated” my success a bit too much. Then a few days after I started running again, I took that really bad fall, which forced me to not run, or even walk much. And I haven’t been able to do weights because of my mystery wrist sprain. And yet I let myself binge on chocolate and candy over the weekend. I can really see the results. 😛 Well, I am committing to eating better now. I should probably weigh myself and hold myself accountable for weight loss, but I don’t think I can bear to see 125 pounds on the scale, so for now I will wait and hope to lose a bit first. I am feeling physically well, so today I will run, and maybe even use some weights.
Now I’m just going to make my list, since my head’s all over the place and I don’t even know what I’m meant to be doing. Continue reading “The daily to-do: Wednesday October 26”
Ahh it’s been a long time. I have been somewhat busy, but eschewing the blogging, for one reason or another. I don’t even remember what was happening the last time I updated. Oh. Okay, I just went back to see when I last posted and I see maaany things have happened since then: the Trump tapes thing came out, Bear and I went to Geek Girl Con, and I ran my first half marathon! That was last Sunday, and I’m still recovering. Didn’t run yesterday, not sure if I should run today or not. I came in 17th place overall out of 92 starts! I was 6th in females, and 3rd in my AG. It was a trail run, and the hills and terrain were difficult and treacherous. I probably should have done a regular road race as my first half, but oh well! It was super fun. My time was 1:55:02 which is a pace of 8:46 per mile. I am actually super proud of myself. 😀
Meanwhile, I’m hosting a neighborhood canvassing event this weekend…not exactly looking forward to it, but it’s a duty. Gonna go ahead and make the list now, since a bunch of random things are floating in through my head. Continue reading “The daily to-do: Tuesday October 18”
Here we are again. Hello. It’s Thursday now…been ready for Friday since monday xD Anyway, I got nothing. I did my run yesterday in the morning, and I did 4 miles this morning, so I feel good having gotten that out of the way. Plan is to do approximately 5 miles tomorrow (maybe a little more), then do some easy weights/ HIIT stuff on Saturday (just like 25 minutes), then do 9 miles on Sunday.
There are other things I should be thinking of…I will add them to the weekly list below. Continue reading “The daily to-do: Thursday September 15”
I just keep falling further and further behind with the “big” things I’m meant to be doing. Yesterday was an utter fail. The good news is that I started today with my run, and did the walk and Cadenza feed early, so I definitely got those things out of the way. Then I was feeling pretty good about myself the rest of the day…and I basically squandered the rest.
Meh. I still don’t feel terrible. The weather was good, and I choose to be okay. Meanwhile, the list: Continue reading “The daily to-do: Wednesday September 14”
This year is really flying. Maybe I should be glad? 2016 hasn’t really been the best.
Anyway, rain rain rain rain rain rain rain and I’ve been doing a really poor job keeping up with my daily lists. I’ve been putting off and “forgetting” all but the most basic tasks. To try to get myself out of this rut, I’ve just started a few things, and it’s going well so far, but I really do need to list and sort out all the stuff I’m forgetting. Below: Continue reading “The daily to-do: Tuesday September 6”
