kaboom?

Saturday, June 21, 2014

So I started taking the bus more to get out of the house and walk in other parts of town. Previously, I'd basically done yoga. Tons and tons of yoga. Walked every so often, not consistently. But then I figure: "oh, I'm walking more so I'll be more fit, etc..." and then I check the scale and find I gained 5lbs in a week of that!

So I looked it up: http://www.sparkpeople.com/blog/blog.asp?p

Sigh.

from my wordpress blog, about - marketing

Thursday, March 27, 2014

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

balance - I really need some just now

Saturday, March 22, 2014

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

good things to remember

Sunday, March 02, 2014

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."

off to the races

Saturday, October 19, 2013

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.
