This is why I don't have a cat. If they would do something useful at 2 a.m., like changing batteries, I'd reconsider.

Why do low battery alarms always start chirping at 3 a.m.? And why do they chirp once every 10 minutes so you absolutely cannot find what's making that maddening noise?

I'm planning a point buy, but if we're allowed to opt for that if our rolls suck, lemme try rolling:

4d6 - 2 ⇒ (2, 3, 4, 3) - 2 = 10
4d6 - 2 ⇒ (4, 2, 6, 2) - 2 = 12
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (1, 4, 2, 4) - 1 = 10
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (6, 4, 4, 1) - 1 = 14
4d6 - 4 ⇒ (4, 5, 4, 5) - 4 = 14
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (1, 3, 6, 4) - 1 = 13

Hmm. I gotta run. Will analyze and decide when I get back. First impression: that blows lemmings.

Up at 4 this morning because the carnitas have been simmering gently all night and now smell amazing!

I'm apartment- and dog-sitting for vacationing friends, so I invited my housemates over for dinner tonight. I miss them. Wish they could bring my puppies, too. It's nice staying at somebody else's house. We can really trash this place.

Menu (all homemade):
Carnitas with sauteed onions and peppers with flour tortillas
Spanish rice
Refried beans
Sour cream, avocado, fresh veggies on the side for nibbling/garnish

I hope they take me seriously and bring sangria, because I don't have to drive.

Dessert:
I found a Cold Stone Creamery nearby and am considering one of their mini-cakes. Nom.

I work out and weigh in at the gym at noon today, so dinner will be a free-for-all. Woo!

If you have charlie horses, you may need to check your mineral intake (calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc). Shortages of those will give you awful cramps and/or tics/twitches. Well done on your circuit training, though! I've been really good with my water workouts, except when it's storming. Screw that.

Yeah, if you cook for yourself, eating healthy is cheaper than trying to eat out healthy. A burger, fries, and sweet soft drink is a lot cheaper than, say, a salad with grilled chicken at fast food places.

One writer did a very nice tally of energy availability based on the $29/week food stamp allowance showing how difficult it is to get sufficient calories from healthier food using a $29/week budget. Here it is.

Starting to come to my attention that I need to start getting back in shape and eating better. Problem is, a) I have basically no money, and b) my back is shot and my knees are on their way out. Any suggestions?

Eating healthier is more expensive, so you will end up eating less. I have read of people eating well off dumpster diving grocery stores because of all the discarded produce, or scavenging in other ways. Take it how you will. I have not tried it.

To get in shape with a bad back and knees, start with a no-cost home regimen. First, get your core strong to help support your back. Not your abs, your core. Here's a nice set of exercises for your core. Do those a lot. Typical theraputic reps are 3 sets of 10 for each, resting between sets as needed, but a lot of core moves (like planking) require holding the pose for as long as you can. Start with shooting for 15 seconds and use 3 minutes as an ultimate goal, adding 15 seconds every couple of days.

To help your knees (and I don't know exactly what is wrong with them but stronger is always better), strengthen the muscles by doing at least straight-leg lifts: front, back, side. My PT recommended 3 sets of 100 each day. She has me do them standing on one leg, lifting the other to the front, side, and back as many times as possible until the 100 count is reached. Switch from front to side when the front exhausts, then side to back when side is toast, then back to front and so on until the 100 are complete in each direction. Then switch legs and do it again. Do that morning, noon, and evening to get to the 300 total for each of the 6 leg-directions. If you can get a set of ankle weights at a garage sale, it will be even more effective.

Simple balancing exercises will help your core and legs, too. Stand on one leg and try a bunch of different poses, keeping your balance the whole time. A SERIOUSLY killer exercise is to stand on one leg and touch your toes very slowly about 15-20 times, 3x on each leg. Do it with weights in your hands if you want to suffer greatly. Zowie!

On top of those, do regular calisthenics: push-ups, etc. Try doing squats. Even with my need-replacement knees, I can do some squats by pointing my toes outward and proceeding slowly. With knees, let your pain be your guide.

I swear to you, if you do core and knee exercises faithfully, you will see improvements in your life within 3-4 weeks even if you're in terrible shape. You do have to push yourself and endure some pain, but it's worth it. Once your back and knees are less troublesome, your options for cardio and other exercises expand.

If you come into some cash, I highly recommend TRX straps. They give you a lot of freedom to exercise using body weight very effectively for strengthening. I use them at the gym and absolutely love them. One of those giant sitty balls is also helpful. Sitting on it routinely (especially with your feet together) improves core strength, and there are a bunch of exercises you can do with it that also help core.

For cardio, do as much walking as you can manage. You might want to do a week or two of core and leg strengthening before you start walking, to avoid damaging any shaky joints. Try to find a cheapo bike on craigslist.

If you can, find a place to swim or water walk. I've been in despair at the cost of pool membership around here, but this weekend found that a reservoir very close to us has a $55/year membership which includes a beach which is open from 0530 to 2100. That will give me tons of time to work out. It will probably be cold and miserable, but that's better than doing nothing or doing cardio that will damage my knees further.

Hope this helps. All the old-fashioned calisthenics still work well (like the old Canadian Air Force exercises or other military workouts) if you adapt them for low-impact to save your back and knees. Look for walking trails nearby that have exercise stations for pull-ups, etc. Your tax dollars at work.

Yoga and/or stretching are great and necessary complement for strength training to keep from getting muscle bound and to improve your balance.

Hope this helps. I've been in the same boat lately and this has all been useful for me.

I've been doing very little video gaming since our Xbox 360 bit the dust. I prefer Xbox to the PC but went ahead and replaced most of my favorite Xbox titles via Steam and GOG. However, my video card kept crapping out. Replaced my power supply, mobo, CPU, and put in a better (used) video card -- and now the video cuts out completely from time to time. It is a complaint about this mobo that I didn't know when I bought it on sale.

So I could go get another, but it's such a pain to remove everything and redo it. *thinks* But if I did that, I could also get more memory and another hard drive and a NEW video card... hmmm.

I do have the Xbox controller, which works for some games but not all. I prefer it to the keyboard.

We had our first asparagus last week. It was delicious! Strawberries will be coming soon, but I'm allergic.

To be honest, we have everything all year round in the grocery stores here, but I still tend to buy produce in season. It's better tasting and has a better chance of being relatively local.
