Recycler CI 6:35pm EST

Hi Pro Buddies!

This morning I went for a bike ride. Arrived back at condo before heavy rain started.

Did bathroom swishies. Bought provisions at store. Put gas in car. Picked up library books & music CDs. Put away groceries.

At the gym, did cardio before having some "spa-time" to color my hair. After that, I did some stretches before leaving the gym.

Arriving at the condo I cooked a meal, then cooked another item. Read some books while the items were cooking. Brought my spending chart up to date.

That is as far as I have gotten today. I'm not sure if I'm going to do anything else.

Have a great evening, everyone! :)



Thank you, gals & guys, for being here! :)

kromer 11:50 CI

OK, I have a lot to do today, and I was very lazy getting out of the house. So now I feel like the day is shot, and am tempted to just waste the rest because it "won't make a difference". But I know that's silly.

So, here's what I want to get done:
1)Figure out what 260/268, 260/230 measurements mean and how I can improve them
2)DNAse treatment

4)Sign up for realtime machine
5)Organize papers, update lab nb (made some progress on this, but still have a lot to do)
6)Website updates
7)Email TL (will do this soon)
8)Finish HW

Those are the most important/urgent things...if I have time to do more there's plenty I could do, but that's a start.

OK, now I'm going to head to the chatbox. 

Journey 11:45

Good morning everyone, I almost didn't check in today but I'm glad I did 'cause there are two great inspirational posts this morning!!  Thanks Falcon and Edge.  but sorry you got the flu Edge.  Everyone seems to be taking the flu seriously this year, so they will probably appreciate it if you stay home.  Feel better soon!

I just balanced the checkbook to see how much money I have left in this month!  Now I'm off to do a few chores then head to the grocery store.  It's been a good morning so far.  Have a great weekend everyone!

    Showing up (done)Plan, another microburst day

Yesterday OK with microburst thinking. More stuff I learned that had meaning to me:it is almost an uncanny description of me, maybe microbursts are worth trying.

Are you "demand-resistant"? by Mithch Myerson

Therapists define demand-resistance as having a chronic negative response to obligations or expectations. This is often unconscious. The person who suffers will make daily lists of things to do, then grow angry and anxious when it's time to get moving. Unconsciously, he or she resents anything that smacks of being "told what to do. In some cases, even returning a phone call, or asking a friend to dinner is resented because it's "expected." If you suffer from demand-resistance, you constantly find that you set goals and sabotage them. You are always angry at yourself, continually resolving to set goals and stick to them.

The antidote is to keep asking yourself, "Is this what I really want?" Demand-resistance is often a childhood response to overly controlling or overly protective parents. As an adult, such a person always feels vulnerable to being overrun.

The more sure you are of yourself, the more you work on building a strong sense of who you are, the less you'll feel like resisting your goals just to prove a point.

To read the full article:

If you are demand-resistant, microburst activities may be your saving grace. Give them a try.

almost 5pm ck in : raining and gloomy, not doing as much microbursting as yesterday, need to get out and swim, get out of house or get depressed.


Edge's CI - 4:23pm

Came back early from uni today because I suddenly felt faint and nauseous. Turns out I've got the flu and the beginnings of a fever. Doc told me to take tomorrow off, so texted my boss that I might not be able to come in tomorrow, just in case.

One thing I've really been procrastinating on is taking my meds on time, and it's been taking a toll on my health =/ As much as I dislike taking meds, I'm an adult and I need to do things even if I don't feel like them, so I'm going to be focusing on taking the meds on a daily basis, taking it one day at a time.

For the remainder of today I'd like to spend some time studying as well as focusing on my meds.
