Cat drama and cautious ambition  
Nugget only wants to eat Senpu's food, no matter what it is.

Senpu eats and is usually ok, but sometimes barfs it up. Then Nugget wants to eat the barf -..-

Nugget can't have Senpu's food at all because of the medications. Today, he's done with his antibiotic and urine acidifier, but he's still got to get the powder in his food. (Epaktin.. for lowering his creatine levels or something)

The cat drama around the food has been a little frustrating. I knew it would be hard to swap them to a feeding schedule, but I had secretly hoped it would be really easy. I figured if they didn't eat everything in the morning, I'd just put it up and feed it to them at night and everything would be great! Senpu doesn't seem to be eating as much as he should, though, and Nugget is a tard, so it's really hard to keep track of how much eat cat is eating. It seems like every time I look away, their heads are in each other's bowls.. but if I give Nugget some of Senpu's food without the medication in it, she won't touch it. GAAAAHHHH

Also-Busy spring is only half over!

I've still got to find a good time to get out to the Impressionists exhibit at the Kimbell with Karen. We really don't want to miss it. This is the only museum in the US it will be at!

I also still need to make travel arrangements for kunkunkun's wedding. I found out it's really not within walking distance of anywhere, and the people that would have been willing to pick us up from the hotel and let us ride with them are not invited because of drama! I will not ask those guys to give us a ride to a wedding they are not invited to. That's like.. super low. So now we've got to figure out if we want to rent a car or get a taxi or what. I bet Summers is renting a car, but he's in the wedding party XP I dunno. This seems like more trouble than it's worth and the whole situation is making me kind of angry. I mean, I kind of don't want to go now just because of all the crap going on. It would save nearly a grand in airfare at any rate XD Now that we have the actual address of the wedding, though, I can look around and see if there are any better options for us that don't involve renting cars.

Oh! But before that, we have a wedding out in east Texas somewhere that we promised we'd go to. We don't know where, we just know it's the third week of May, and those slackers haven't gotten invites out yet. :X

We have not figured out wedding gifts for either of those guys. They're both going to have registries, and Matt was just talking about getting their email addresses and mailing them amazon gift cards, and I was like WTF.. why not get something off the list that they want? XD Whatever. I mean... if they are registered on Amazon anyway, I guess it's all the same :P

I'm also tentatively thinking about restarting my workout and diet plans. I'm getting really discouraged at how much I suck at getting in shape, though, so I'm almost afraid to even talk about the new plans. It's like.. instant dissappointment. Talking about it dooms me to failure -..- Whoops! I just lost the game!

In all seriousness, though, I keep reading about people who were able to lose 100 lbs in a year by losing about 2 lbs a week through healthy diet and exercize. Most of these people recommend 30 min or aerobic exercize 6 days a week as a minimum, with weights added in. I think to myself.. I did 45 min on the bike 3 days a week. I could do 30 min a day. That's less time all at once, but more time spread over the week. That's like.. even better! If I do this, though, I'm going it alone. All of the people I have surrounded myself with are unhealthy and overweight. None of them will help me, and most of them will try to sabotage me. Neither of the people I have worked out with in the past will be able to commit to 30 min a day 6 days a week... and to be honest, one chick I was reading about online was doing 30 min 6-7 days a week, twice a day. They definitely couldn't do that. I hate exercize, I hate being sweaty, and I like food way too much. That's how I got where I am now. Nobody touched me in a bad place as a child or anything like that. I have all the time in the world to work on my fitness at home. I clean, but in between chores, I have time. I play videogames, but even then, I have time. I have no excuses. It's just laziness. 30 min once or twice a day is nothing. I just don't want to get sweaty. I need to get over it and get it done. If I just go hop on the bike every time I feel like snacking, that's like a doubly whammy of calorie reduction.

If I can comitt to this and keep it up for at least two+ months, (If I stay on track, that will be around 15 lbs at least) I plan on getting my first tattoo (a small one) as a reward to help keep me motivated. I know I've been talking about getting one for years, but I wasn't ever able to find an artist with a good looking portfolio, or find one that wanted to work with someone out of town on a larger peice. I found a good shop in Austin that isn't on 6th street, though, and since the first one will be small and based on an existing design, I won't have to work with someone via email to try to get a design down for a larger peice. If I can get down to my target weight and maintain it for at least a year, I will look into getting that big castlevania back peice I've been talking about for years. :X

My brother went back to Austin, though, so I sent the vast majority of his junk food home with him. What he didn't take back, I'm going to throw away, so there will no longer be any candy or chip temptations. I don't know how I'm related to him at all. His ability to chow down on junk and not gain tons of weight is amaaziing.

I also haven't been spending much time in front of the computer. We got our beta keys for the new warcraft expansion, but it's really buggy right now. Matt's been playing the hell out of it anyway, though, and spends all spare time bitching about the bugs, which drives me out of the computer room. I don't want to sit and listen to it while I'm trying to read stuff or do stuff -..- Listening to bitching is so distracting XD lolololol

Anyway.. Today is Monday! It's a new day! I feel motivated! Let's not failing!

Lauren and I are happy to give you rides if you need it. It's not worth stressing over :-/ I can't get you to the airport on Monday morning (Super Shuttle?), but otherwise, I'm sure we can work something out :)

Thanks! I'll worry about that after I have all the travel plans made. I don't want to ask you guys for rides on the wedding day because that seems super tacky to me :P Lauren was the one that suggested we rent a car. I was planning on getting to & from the airport with like.. super shuttle or something and worrying about the in-town stuff after that. I'm sure Nick has people leaving mon too, so maybe we can all carpool to the airport.
I know! Maybe we'll drop Matt off at the wedding, and I'll skip and we can go eat ramen......... OR! sit across the street with binoculars and gossip? XD

If you guys don't need much space for luggage, you can usually rent a budgetmobile on Priceline for $10 a day or so.

Get some accountability buddies for losing weight online. That's what I did since I don't know anyone in real life that is trying seriously to lose weight. I've been averaging 1-2 pounds per week, even though I don't think I look any different. It adds up to over 20 pounds so far.

Online? I don't see how that's any different than using the app I'm using or doing it by myself. I don't know. >..<

Anyway, I did really well today.. got in 30 min of cycling (morning), 15 min of weighs (afternoon), and a crapton of housework. I ate around 1500 cal for the day. I felt hungry a lot, but I tried doing more housework to keep me distracted. It worked, but I'm going to have to be really creative today since there's less to do :X

Well do you actively yell at yourself for not logging everything in the app, eating badly, or not working out? I have a bunch of people in my weightloss network that give me a really hard time if I'm not doing things right. Then when I whine about eating something bad they are like "you WILL do better tomorrow or else!" so that helps me. I sure as shit can't motivate myself to do anything. But to each his own, I guess. Plus, being in the online community people suggest recipes that I want to try and share pictures that are inspirational.

I'm thinking about putting a video game system hooked up to my TV where the elliptical is. I did extremely well grinding out all my chars in FF4 After Party while on the elliptical and totally lost track of time. Maybe if I put the playstation in here I'd be able to slog through drawing enough crap to beat FF8. You never know!

You know it's not a problem girl. We know people too! What email address do you use now-a-days?
