callistra: Fuschia from Sinfest crying her heart out next to Hell's flames (Default)
I didn't sleep so well last night. I think it's the cumulative effect of being a bit more active, and my body's just adjusting a little. My appetite has increased a little, always a good since, but yeah... I usually get a night or two of problem sleep when I start working out again. I try to avoid taking drugs if I can avoid it, and you know, our bodies are designed for this sort of flexibility.

But ... *sigh* tired....

I have joined Health Month since Meghan and jess told me to (have I mentioned that sometimes when I get tired I become more obedient?) It should be fun. It's $5 but it makes habit forming a bit of a game. I'd love to know if any one else is doing it, so find me on there! Callistra of course :)

I had already decided to put some thought back into my health across all of August, and tbh I'm about 80% where i want to be. Despite no excersize and very little attention to my diet, I only put on 400gs since before melbourne, so I am pretty good with maintenance but I'm ready to get rid of the next bunch of weight. I'm going to try something different this time - I won't weigh in at all. I'm curious as to whether removing the focus of the goal system will make the conscious food choices easier or harder. It's easy to miss the bigger picture, and I know I lose about a pound a week which i concentrate, but without that goal of weightloss, I can focus more energy on ensure I do the right activities (drink my water, watch my food, get some movement happening). I have also included a writing goal in there too. I'm actually pretty excited about August. A lot of stuff in my life has finally calmed down, so I'm expecting to get soem good solid work done in all spheres, and start prepping for John's new job which pays monthly. Most of my household is already running on a monthly budget, so it won't be ahuge shock but it will be at a different time in the month.

I put out a meme on FB the other day and somone pointed out that the phrase used has some problems with it, and I agree. I forget, and do things which aren't right, and I don't want to delete the meme as I do want to own it. I read the text one way and I really shouldn't have forgotten the people it would affect. I also don't know how to talk about it without sounding like a total git. Ah well, such is life. I think I need to put some more thought into the way I move around that issue, and what I need to learn in the process of the post. I need to think more about it, in other words. And when I am not already feeling tired, vague and a tad low!

This post appears to have no interesting part to it today. I don't know whether to apologize or try harder. I spent all morning reading about the Readercon issue, and I don't really want to rehash all of that. I'm going to let this post trail away into nothing. Hope every one else's day is more engaging than mine!
