    Instead of claw trimmers, carefully use finger nail clippers. That's what we use on our cat. I only cut about 1/4 inch off them (just to make them not so pointy) at a time. I don't want to hit her cuticle, but I'm too cheap to go buy a real pair of trimmers. I use infant clippers which are VERY sharp and small to prevent cutting too deeply, but regular fingernail clippers will work just fine.

    Your workout makes me want to cry. 1 b/c my rib still hurts like a bitch and crunches would be a VERY bad idea, and 2 b/c I can't do it because of said rib. You rock, girly!

    And congratulations on No babies.

    Aww I'm sorry about your rib! I just wish I could do more ab stuff. I really need to work on cardio things because that is mostly what holds me back. Maybe that's normal though, not really being able to breath when doing crunches. I should move my coffee table (aka. old steamer trunk) and stick my feet under the couch for some real sit-ups instead. I know there are other things I can do (and Boyfriend knows some killer core workouts), but I like to put in my 5-10 min and be done.

    We only have giant nail clippers (I lost my tiny ones booo), but that is good to know that they will work. I'll invest in a smaller pair soon and get Boyfriend's help in wrangling kitty. I am expert at towel-wrapping cats.

    Real sit-ups are hazardous to your back. Put a lot of pressure on the lumbar spine and subsequent tissues. Army is even doing away with sit-ups as a fitness test requirement.

    Plus, they're meant to work your hip flexors, not your ab muscles. True sit-ups are felt in your legs.

    Hmmm then I need to re-think my core workouts. Planks are probably a good enough start for this weakling anyway =P

    Shit, I just realized my self-ascribed halfway point is 4 days away. I need a new photo! It's probably not going to be that obvious that I've got a little muscle definition, mostly just going to look like I lost some body fat, but I want to update anyway.

    I have other pictures from that same day that I might put up here, as a side-by-side, but I don't want to seem TOO vain

    Not sure where I am with real push-ups, will check tonight. Definitely not at 1 pull-up yet, but no bars accessible for testing.

    Who am I kidding, this is not a minor acne break-out and I know exactly what the cause is. At least it's hiding around the edges of my hair. STOP TOUCHING.

    My beef stew was delicious yesterday. I had three bowls full. I was still hungry and was thinking about having a sweet potato (not having lunch means I did actually need more food), but the cookies were right in front of me. I had one cookie and a beer, and also some gelato later. I didn't like it that much, but I love the creamy consistency of ice cream once it has started to melt in the pint container. It is unusual for me to find food in front of me so irresistible. With the cookies in the same room but out of direct line of sight, I found them easy to ignore. I don't feel like analyzing this so I'm just making notes in case I realize something later (when I'm not feeling so roller-coaster-y).\

    Boyfriend commented that I eat a lot. It looks like I do, but calorie-wise, I'm taking in about as much as I should (and sometimes, not even enough). Due to brain-shittiness, it made me feel bad to think that I am eating too much. FUCK YOU BRAIN. Fuck you. It's so frustrating to KNOW that my brain is not acting properly, but I can't do anything about it. I can only try to wait this out and pull through until it's lunch time. Then more beef stew.

    BTW I can't quite do a full regular push-up, but if I don't try to go down all the way, I can manage 2. My arms/shoulders are sore today (feels good) after doing some dips and various other upper-body related exercises yesterday. A bit of core soreness as well, after doing some superman thingy (lie on stomach, arms extended over head, lift arms and legs off floor, keep face off floor, pull arms back almost like breast-stroke and pull thighs off floor by clenching butt). It's less stressful on my back than planks, so I may do that for core-work for now.

    My morning started with a call from Baba, looking for my dad. I called my parents, could not get a hold of anyone, then called Baba back. She'd talked to my dad already. She's at home and sounds pretty normal for her, but is worrying about getting "her things" in order. She has been worrying about being prepared in the event of her death since my grandfather died 13 years ago (and it's always worse when she's back from the hospital). Despite basically growing up with her constantly trying to pawn things off on me (in a good way, I mean, they would be useful and everything), it still makes me worry a lot. She wants me to come up soon to see her and I think she wants to try and get me to agree to take some things (either now/soon or after she dies). She said, "Don't worry, I'm not dying." But I worry. I want to go up next week, money be damned. I'd go up this weekend, just for a night, if it weren't for the appointment and BBQ and really not feeling like I could handle the potential anxiety of a trip up this weekend. At the very least, I have a $50 gift certificate for a local store and will probably get a chance to browse for something nice. I want a new dress, though I should probably look for new shirts since that's what I need.

    I have terrible cramps today and am feeling irritable and emotionally sensitive. At least it's Friday and I'm about to have a good weekend, right? I sure hope so. Feeling like someone dosed me with fukitall and I am in danger of spending money that I should not. I am probably not good company today. My initial response to practically every thread I'm reading is "who the fuck cares". I am also pissed off at ageism. At what point is it okay to say "I don't care if I'll feel that way when I'm 'your age', quit acting like you are superior because you are older." I know I am extra defensive when it comes to my age because I am one of the youngest active forum members and I want to be fairly represented as an adult. I know I am also extra sensitive to this because I am very used to having my opinion swept aside as unimportant (by family) and I do see this place as an opportunity to make myself heard. Maybe it's a bit ambitious to hope that strangers on the internet will be more receptive to this kind of change. "No, no, I'm not trying to invalidate your opinion, but I'm invalidating your opinion!"

    I have to get gas for the scooter on the way home from work, or I may not make it home. I am feeling very anxious about this, despite having done it numerous times. I feel anxious about it EVERY time. Part of it is because I've spilled gas before when filling the scooter and it's embarrassing.

    Weekend plans: Maybe farmers market tomorrow morning, but I expect I will not feel motivated to go and battle my anxiety. Chiropractor @ 11. I wanted to see about dragging Boyfriend along with me (and cover his copay), but the office is closed today so there's no guarantee he could be seen Father's Day/birthday BBQ thing in the afternoon. Sunday is wide open and right now I just hope I don't feel like crap all day.

    Well, I hear you, there, kiddiwinks. Now go play with your toys while the adults talk . . .

    I'm sorry to hear about your Baba, but I think you're making the right decision about when to go. You want to be able to focus on her, not worry about falling apart. And if this Sunday is a "comatose" kinda day, well, maybe you just need one. I'm coming to accept that sometimes it is actually ok to have them.

    The tricky thing is mingling comatose with the right dose of boredom so I can do nothing comfortably, instead of uncomfortably. Boredom is DANGEROUS for me and that is what I'm foreseeing right now. I need to have an idea of what kind of lazing about I would enjoy doing, and then I think it'll be okay. More GoT, perhaps? Yes. Tyrion is as amazing on the screen as he is on the page. And I didn't realize it's ACTUALLY Sean Bean (as a protagonist?! how rare!) and not people clipping Boromir and saying he's Ned Stark (yes, that is what I thought).

    Glad to hear the Baba is at home and feeling better.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    I hear you on that. But that sounds like a perfect dolce far niente day. (Yes, I whipped out my only Italian for you- carefree idleness. Pretty cool, huh?) I need to start on that eventually. I think. Probably.

    Other thoughts/concerns: I am having a hard time typing today. Been a long time since I felt like this. I am feeling more anxious than I have for a while. I have had a twitch in my face since yesterday, starting along my left eyebrow and ending on the left side of my nose. I keep massaging the area hoping it will stop, but it doesn't. It's probably not serious, but SOMETHING is causing it and I want to know what.

    I wonder how much of this is hormones. I did not feel like trying to find an excuse to leave work this morning, but I really do now.
