    Kitties...we had to feed Willow separately because we could never her off dry food and and Whisper couldn't have dry food because of her diabetes. Sometimes, Willow was an ass. She would sit and watch Whisper eat. Whisper would get scared and walk away. Willow would walk over, take a bite and walk away. No wonder they were never friends.

      and LOL CODawn that is the sort of shit mine do... but I don't want Int taking any bites of Shadow's food so.....

      This week has been SHIT with habits, bc it has been SHIT w mood. I made a conscious decision 2 days ago to break food rule, bc hubby asked last min if he could just pick us up burgers for dinner instead of me cooking... and I'd already bribed self out the door w a burrito for lunch and I need to balance "trying to eat more healthfully" with "not letting food 'rules' interfere with life" VERY carefully. Then yesterday I had cookies for breakfast and again bribed self out of house w a fish and chips for dinner >.> bc it is almost lent and I want a fish fry on fridays bc I miss home. Idk that Yoga is a good habit to try to add daily. I think I will try "do yoga for 15+ mins 3+ x a week" instead next week.

      Yesterday's workout was 10 mins of "I don't want to" yoga and a walk.
      Today's was same of yoga and an easy upper body day - builder with 8lbs.

      Friend is coming to help me deal w leaking fucking sink today and I asked her to borrow a pipe wrench from her fwb just in case (I think it will come apart fine w my large crescent wrench, but, if it doesn't it will be nice to have right tool) and instead somehow she has borrowed the entire man so this will be less of a "project" bc he actually knows what he's doing. (Friend and I are both "reasonably handy people who can generally figure out how to do something by looking it up/calling her dad" ... guy we have "borrowed" is actually a carpenter/general contractor.) So my apartment is cleaner than it's been in awhile bc I did panic zomg a person is coming clean. And I have pre-marked "leave the house" bc we will prob end up at a bar with outdoor seating after.

      Habits this week:
      LEAVE FUCKING HOUSE* 4/5
      Composed outfit (not yesterday's) 5/5
      Some useful task before 10am 5/5
      Yoga* 5/5
      Learning/job hunting 5/5
      Writing 5/5
      (Yesterday) Fluids 4/5

        By my count you are 36/40 overall, which is 90%, which is an A, so . . .

          Thanks Mamatigerj my ATTITUDE abt habits has been shit, which is what is bugging me. Will reconfigure list next week bc habits should be good things.

          Today's exercise was groceries hauling and some light home improvent (hung a curtain rod, replaced shower curtain, sorted kitchen pegboard situation) and heavy organizing (got all my "toolish things I want more often then I do real projects" into a basket; all my tools (except hacksaw and miter box bc too big) into 1 tool box; my fixtures, screws, nails, hooks, etc into other one; and painting shit, clamps/ratchet straps + afore mentioned hacksaw/miter box into large chest). I live in 500 square feet and if I had room I could use one of those big standing tool chests you see in garages >.> Seriously, I want/could justify this if I had a spot for it LOL.

          I did some nice meal plan for the week, including thinking about using leftover ingredients and 2 dinners that are made from pantry items only so if I cave and get takeout I'm not wasting shit. As a bonus I only spent 50$ at grocery store AND my non perishables cupboard is now full enough to starve off anxiety.

          Habits this week:
          LEAVE FUCKING HOUSE* 5/6
          Composed outfit (not yesterday's) 6/6
          Some useful task before 10am 6/6

            Today I did a decent lower body workout. Started with this, x3, 8lbs just to warm up. Then started this one... and did not do the abs at end, bc I could not be assed to get back on floor after already being down there once then getting up >.> But it was still a leg day at least, so whatever.

            Habits - Yoga as a daily thing will come out, this week I will strive for 4+ strength workouts and 2+ actually listening to down dog yoga days.
            leave fucking house - needs to be daily unless really shit weather. Same with composed outfit and useful task, fluids, those need to be non negotiable. 2 homemade meals, learning/job hunting, and writing can be 5/7. Going to add "Out of bed before 7" as a daily non negotiable. If I have not fed the house tigers by then they are fucking terrible to deal with when I do, and starting my day off bleeding and cursing is not optimal.

            Habits this week:
            LEAVE FUCKING HOUSE* 6/7
            Composed outfit (not yesterday's) 7/7
            Some useful task before 10am 7/7

              Seriously. This morning, first I was upset AND couldn't feed them immediately upon getting out of bed bc Int left a mess right by my side of the fucking bed to be stepped in, so I had to wash my foot before I could feed them. Then she was beside herself enough that she jumped up on the counter while I was setting up their bowls, and knocked a glass onto floor which broke (go old lady and jumping, but wtf this is not a habit she has EVER had in her life). So, I needed to get both cats OUT of kitchen, away from glass, with their food dishes... then Int kept insisting on eating Shadow's food so I had to pick her up till Shadow had eaten. By the end of it my foot was bloody from glass AND my shoulder from Int trying to get away from me >.<. All bc I had the nerve to stay in bed till 8am.

                  DorothyMH seriously.. cats man >.>

                  Today I did not want to. Did not want to what? Anything. Was not going to leave house (bc it was raining in morning, nvm that it got beautiful). Was not going to work out. Was just bleh.
                  But a friend called me bc she was going to nice grocery store near my house, so I went out, and walked around store for 20 mins... then got home and tidied up a bit and did Chest and Back light bc wod. And I feel better for it, but I still lack energy to do more. But hey, I applied for 3 jobs today >.>

                          Thanks DorothyMH Whirly Trbrat75
                          Today was upper body workout day. Tendon + w 5lbs and Power 20 (15s for hammers and shrugs, 8s for lat raises, 10s for rest).

                          I need to set an alarm to ensure I'm up before 7. 715 today /sigh. I was to bed early enough that I SHOULD have been up on my own but...1-I am sleeping extra and 2- Fkn cat was singing the song of her people for an hour last night from 2-3am.

                          Idk wether to give myself writing credit today. Yesterday I read through/edited new short a bit. Too early to do again. I'm thinking about how to structure next long. (Might go "various points of view" style like Martin... in which case I need to think about distinct voices for other characters I want to use as "eyes". It's been easy to find character voice for my main bc she's a straight woman roughly my age (ie, I cheated) just w some "suprapowers", I gave her a sort of glib/irreverent self-assured tone,... but the other eyes/voices I'd want to use include a guy, a kid, and a non human so I need to think hard about tone/voice.) I'm not going to get anything on "paper" today, though, this is all "head draft" so idk if it counts.

                            This made me LOL...I can relate, tho I have one that meows and one that puts her paws under the closed door and pulls so it bangs...and bangs....and bangs. Maybe I need to put some gaskets or something around the door so there is no space for it to move to make said "bang" noise...it's very annoying and she does it at least twice a night...bitch

                              Oh gosh, the kitties have been tough on you! Better do a sacrifice to Bastet, some warm milk or cheese! (Seriously, when they start being demons, oh my...)

                                Willow used to do this. Willow and Whisper ended up going to the basement our bedtime.
