Still, we were going to go out to eat today and do all sorts of things that *needed* to be done, like tune up my car and get the things we need to re-caulk the kitchen and bathrooms. I was going to cook breakfast, then we were going to go out and run errants... maybe grab lunch at the hibachi place closeby, and get a lot of maintenance stuff done on the house together. Instead, I woke up at 1:30 like usual to find him passed out next to me :( He never wants to wake me up! Instead, he lets me sleep, goes to bed, and when I wake up I'm all by myself. It's really frustrating. I know I'm not going to get the car stuff taken care of. Not if I have to sit there all afternoon while they take care of it. That's why we were going to go out together! :X So we could take two cars and knock out some stuff while we waited.
Unfortunately, tonight is his last night off, so all of this will have to wait until next week. (It probably won't happen until much later)
I still need to hit the gym today. My attendance has been so spotty. I've given up on the idea of having a partner to keep me motivated. I can't keep myself motivated as is XP
I did go to the nutrition seminar last weekend, though, and while I already knew a lot of the stuff they were talking about, the information on nutritional proportions and portion size was somthing I needed to hear. I don't want to start that nutrition plan until we work our way through more of the groceries around here, though. If I have unhealthy things to tempt me, my willpower will inevitably fail. I've been doing some things right with food choices these past few years, though.
I've managed to pinpoint my problems down to lack of knowledge about WTF a balanced meal is, and proportion size. I honestly thing proportion size will come naturally with a balanced meal once I get used to cooking multiple meals every day, though. It doesn't matter how healthy my choices are if I'm not balancing my protein/carbs/etc. It's all stuff I've read before online and in The China Study, etc. Cut refined sugars/flour, eat more veggies, etc. All that crap. The problem with a lot of these books, though, is that they assume you already know how to eat. When you don't know what you should be cooking or how you should be eating, suggestions like "eat more veggies, cut carbs, blahblah" are hollow because you have no point of reference.
When I went to the nutrition thing, I was one of the first 10 to show up, so they gave me the nutrition book they were selling for free. It has a few tables on what sort of numbers you should aim for in what you eat, and how the suggested serving size isn't nessesarily the serving you should be eating. Most importantly, though, it has recipies. The recipies are general examples of the protein/carb/fat proportions you should be aiming for, and that's really what I needed. I know that even if I magically find the willpower to keep with my gym schedule, it'll continue to be worthless if I can't learn how to eat.
Since I've had this extra time to do whatever, though, I've been playing more of that SRPG I talked about a while back. Luminous Arc isn't bad. Sometimes the stylus controls are a little wonky, which is frustrating, though. I didn't find out until recently I could change the stylus controls to left/right handed, OR disable them and go back to the old school D-pad. I've already played like 15 hours on this thing with stylus, though, so I'm going to keep the controls that way XD Like secret_plot said, it's really just another typical SRPG with magical witches and whatever. It's not a groundbreaking story, and the gameplay is the same as games like FF Tactics. I hated the 30 min battles with FF Tactics, but maybe I'll go back and give it another shot sometime. I played the one on GBA, too, and clocked in quite a few hours on that one. I guss i just have to happen to be in the mood for a SRPG.
I'm still at the end dungeon of P4, too... unfortunately. You guys know how I get with good RPGs. I play right up to the end, don't want it to be over, and then drop it without seeing the ending :P I'm still a little pissed that I didn't manage my time well enough to max out all my SLinks in one run. I heard it was possible, but I couldn't do it. I even remembered to always keep a Persona of the same arcana as the Slink I was building, and I just didn't have enough time to max out like 3 or 4 of them. I didn't get Tower or Fortune opened early enough. I suck at the fishing game, too, so I wasn't able to get my final rank of Hermit. I should be able to max them all in a second playthrough if I don't have to dick around with my stats. The worst part was continuing to advance Slinks and find days off to work on stats.. Rainy days at the beef bowl place, whatever... and this is limiting my dungeon trips to no more than 2 days per dungeon. D: Damn you Slinks!
Also, I need some new icons. seriously. D:
