    I know this isn't the same thing but similar. When we visit my parents, I have to pack normal clothes. Since I work from home, I basically live in TecGear and vacation t-shirts. I always have to try on my jeans and normal shirts. It's humbling and sometimes depressing. Last September, trying on shiorts was particularly sad. Better than this coming September, since we can't go at all. Anyway, I hope that you can work things out with your wardrobe and work isn't too stressful. Stay healthy.

      Thanks CODawn
      If someone would invent a body suit which could magically keep you the correct temperature and look like whatever you wanted it to (with artist's fees for skins perhaps) that just fit whatever the fuck size you are I would so pay all my money for it.

      I am tempted to splurge on a dvf wrap dress that *just* fits now bc I'm about as big as I am apt to get and then I can wear it down 30lbs or so if I do shrink a bit once I'm moving more again. Meh tho, I need to be on austerity budget atm.

      Luckily enough, this was the last weekend my guy friend and his buddies will be playing commander online - they are going back to meeting up irl next week - so I am super happy that I got to play this morning. Won my last game w that crew w a commander named after me LOL. So I will need to set up games w my friend or sleep_twitch so I don't go into withdrawl but I had a nice "last Sunday morning off".

      Out for brunch since restaurants on my street are doing outdoor dining and some Eggs Benedict and a Bloody Mary sounded awesome.

      Did Baseline lv3 and 5 sets of a circuit w 15lb body bar, 5 reps each bent row, up row, millitary press, squat, goodmorning.

      day 8

        I still have to sort through the "hanging" part of my closet, and that's where the expensive clothes are grml. So, I feel you ​​​​​​

        We can still play some Commander on a "whenever it fits our schedule" basis of course. Awesome that you won with the cats + dogs deck!

          I am going to steal your "healthy habits" checklist idea. Think I will start with 3.
          1 hr+ active time
          100oz non booze fluids
          3+ servings fruit or non starchy veg

          This morning I did just lv1 of baseline 22, woke up w some headache and needed couch time before getting ready for work. (Don't think I'm sick, this is standard " stress/rin's body hates changes in routine" headache so I just washed a naxoprin-sodium down w cold brew coffee and shut eyes for 30 mins till it went away.)

            I have the same rule for the healthy habits: "3 new ones per 2 week cycle". In my habit tracker app (Repeat Habit Tracker), I assigned colors to my focus areas (food / water / sleep / movement / self-care) to make sure I add some habits for different areas and it's not all about movement or all about food. My goal is 11/14 (3 jokers for off days) - if it's less than 11, I restart that habit in the next cycle. In my bullet journal, I also write down a reward (something small that I don't really need, but would like to have, e.g. a fancy sketchbook or a poster), and I buy it after a cycle is over and my stats look good.

              Yes. Please.
              Also, I hope you are having a good first day back at work.

                Now I have another app to look at sleep_twitch >.>

                And thanks Mamatigerj . I am equally optimistic and annoyed abt work. Let's see tomorrow when I have customers to deal with LOL.

                Had a damned adventure this morning.

                Did day 23 of baseline, have my clientfriend contemplating what sort of program he wants next now that I know he won't just have an asthma attack immediately or pull all his muscles.

                Also did 10 sets of circiut w my bar before and between baseline-
                5 bent rows
                5 up rows or palms out curls (alternated these)
                5 military press
                5 squat
                5 good mornings

                Habits:
                Active 60min 1/1
                Fluid 100oz 1/1
                Fruit/Veg 3 1/1

                  Wow. I read your IG post. That is *not* a good sign for anyone who is in the least bit intimidated by the whole voting process. Or, dare I say, for anyone of color or who is not a white male. That does not bode well for the coming months....😒 Good for you, though, pushing through, and getting it done. 🥳

                    DorothyMH as a representative of the male race I can say that situation would not have benefited us in the least, we would have never stopped to asked for directions to find the polling location in the first place.

                      I have a bunch of MTG cards but have no earthly idea how to play. My oldest son was supposed to teach me and weeell, he is off in the Army living in Hawaii now so that never happened. He went over a few basics with me (which was several yrs ago now) but we never actually played I dont know anyone else around that plays so they just sit in my drawer, never been used. er...anyways, i just wanted to say...cool card lol

                        I don't want to get anybody's hopes up but, some are working on something similar. Fabric that will expand or contract according to size as well as collect humidity from the body. But it's only shirts now and I don't remember where I read it.

                          Amirsh ya, this has been heading to market for 2-3 years now but...I will wait until you can program it to look how you would like instead of like a wetsuit.

                          Trbrat75 LOL... I like to play but dislike having piles of cards around so, virtual play makes me happy

                          Azercord lol...

                          DorothyMH ya... I have perfected the "friendly Brontosaurus" shit when I run into obstacles like that but, I doubt I could get away with it if not for my demographics.

                          Did baseline 24 today and 30 swings of my kettlebell and will walk to subway.

                          Habits:
                          Active 60min 2/2
                          Fluid 100oz 2/2

                              That Kindly Brontosaurus bit is great. I think I’ve used that before, myself, just didn’t know it was a “thing.”Works especially well in the airport, it’s true.

                                Trbrat75 there is official virtual in a few forms (Arena is a nice way to learn game mechanics free) and if your son has time/computer access you can even play w him on it, or just against randos/computer bot. There is also unofficial "table top simulator" which is on steam has all sorts of card/board games in it but you always need ppl to play with.

                                DorothyMH I find it works doubly well when combined w just not leaving, for extended time periods if necessary >.>


                                1st day back to work was pretty much a bust, for me. So dinner last night was pizza and wine...which led to more wine and cookies... so this morning I am unamused w myself and my walk will be my whole workout.

                                Also I need to get more water during the day so I'm not trying to slam a ton at bedtime.

                                Habits:
                                Active 60min 3/3
                                Fluid 100oz 3/3
                                Fruit/Veg 3 3/3
