It's unnerving publicizing and marketing myself, but there we are, it needs to be done, which is stuff I'm writing about here:

And it's spring, my least favorite season because it's so UN-balanced. Sigh. Exercise feels waaaay off this week; I barely got any last week, and this week I kind of accidentally did OVER the suggested amount (and felt it, to some extent). I'm programming a lot, but my mental energy seems to go "ok you can program 3hrs at most, then probably just lolling in front of the tv or gaming". Yeah, it's off. Not the "do 6 things per day at most" energy I had last month! I dunno what's up.
On the plus side I'm making progress on the game I've been designing:) http://jahowe.wordpress.com/2014/03/22/sto

I wanted to remind myself that yes, yoga's good for me. It doesn't show up as "great" if I just go by the fitness tracker because that tends to just focus on "calories burned". But I've practiced it since I was 16, and I do forget sometimes how much it's helped me with strength and flexibility, as well as the mental part of it keeping me at least semi-calm:) (well, at least some of the time).
...and, yeah, in the long run, it's better for me - or anyone - to not focus totally on "oh I gotta lose weight", and instead on "I'd like to be fit and healthy."

My husband and I are both gamers, but we do it in very different ways, which is sometimes good and sometimes v ery frustrating. Like now; I have a character in Terraria who is in hardmode, and in need of new equipment. Hubby is helping me get the supplies... but sometimes, I just don't get areas, or tactics - I have a lot of problems with critical thinking. And here I am crying inside because of all things I can run around in my hardmode world with my character, and get much less frustrated than I am right now attempting to figure out how to get hellstone and run through an underground jungle while my husband keeps getting sidetracked by something neat down there, and all I want are the supplies to get one pick together and THEN I want to explore. Not before that.

Stress - of late, a stressful week. My doctor's had me lower the dosage of one of my meds, Neurontin, and lowering it is giving me baaaad insomnia. I'm prone to sleep problems anyway, you see. The weather's been all over the place too, from rainy to very sunny the next day - and big weather changes mess me up a bit too. We also took the cat to the vet earlier in the week; that was somewhat stressful, making sure he was ok going and all, and then we find out that the poor guy has lost weight, probably because there's been a flea issue here since this summer that was caused by a neighbor's dog - grr. Playoffs have been tense, and there was also the issue with the government shutdown.
I noticed while writing this that one at least of the issues I have is I stress the most about stuff I can't control: neighbor's dog, the government (I mean we can vote for them but we can't stop those idiots from shutting down when they want, it seems), medication side effects (lol and sometimes side effects based on dosage!), the weather...
But then, I aready knew I did that. My worst problem here is I get really irritated when someone says to me "well, so just realize there's some things out of your control." That doesn't work at all for me. So, I don't know what to do - which adds to my stress level as well. And then, my memory's horrible after years of health issues, so remembering to even do this is difficult, and that really gets to me!
