It’s Project Club Time!

Back to the grind! I’m sticking with one goal this week: start exercising again. I’ve been eating really well but barely moving at all, because I hate moving in general but especially when it’s so hot out that I’m already a sweat monster, just sitting around, doing nothing. But that’s no excuse, so I’m aiming for at least three workouts.

    I haven’t been using my weights because my gd back still hurts and is in fact getting worse. But the other day I said “Fuck it, my dumb back isn’t going to control my life” so I used them again even though it was painful. I am basically The Rock now, I think.

    Also I have been slightly more frugal this week! My spending was mostly on a birthday present for my sister which doesn’t count, and though I ordered a couple of pricey items last night (a memory foam topper for my mattress and one of those massage overlays you put on your chair; see above re: my back) I used the bonus money from yesterday for the whole purchase so that ALSO doesn’t count. Right?

    Here we go! I want to really get some movement on my goals over the next few months. WE CAN DO IT GUYS! 🙂
    1. Get my work to pay for me to take a design refresher course (I think they will…just gotta convince them I can be away from my desk for 3 days straight when the class is.)
    2. Clean out my room of clothing and unnecessary stuff. I have wayyyy too much stuff. Be ruthless. Don’t talk myself into saving clothing for outlandish possibilities like: “well what if I have a 60’s themed costume party to attend.” No.
    3. Attempt to consign the clothing I get rid of. Donate whatever isn’t consignment worthy.
    4. Quit Diet Coke again. I go back and forth on this one all the time. But, it’s an expensive and unhealthy habit that I just need to quit.

      I should do a closet clean out post and show you guys all the ridiculous clothing that I own that I just keep holding on to. Highlights include: A shiny gold dress that makes me look like a sexy c3p0, actual size yellow dutch clogs, etc.

      • I have so many expensive* dresses that I just can’t bear to give to Goodwill but am too lazy to consign, so they just sit in my closet. I really need to purge them, but weekends are for fun!

        *over $50

  4. I’ve been biking 100-150 miles a week and I want to keep that up as long as I can (aka until it’s too dark and cold). That goal is going pretty strong.

    My only other goal is to make a print for my friend as a wedding gift. I have 2 weeks to do that. Gotta get drawing!

      That is so impressive. So many miles. I can’t even imagine. What do you think about while biking?

    Hello team HM! You’re all doing well with your projects, I read your posts even if I haven’t been commenting. Bit of a weird time for me. My project at the start of the year was: Learn Portuguese. Because I was going to Rio, for the Olympics, right? Well. Project going very well. Trip to Rio, not so much. It all fell apart about 10 days ago 😦 I’m very sad. It’s been a number of things, the organisers not letting us know anything about our roles and then saying last minute that there might not actually be a role at all… then my housemate there dropped out and I didn’t necessarily have any accommodation… I just got left with little choice. I mean, I could have gone. But it would have been a very expensive three weeks, given I’ve not got a guaranteed job here now.

    Trying to think how I can at least get something out of the Portuguese learning, so I am going to see if I can enter myself for a GCSE (that’s our exam for age 16)

      OH NO! That is such a major bummer. Ugh.

    • FRQ says:

      Look on the bright side: Given the news coming out of there, you might have dodged a bullet. Also, you can’t go wrong with learning a new language. If anything, you should hit up some beaches in Portugal on a regular basis.
