Well, as expected, my 215 lbs Goal by 1 April is a FAIL!
No way am I going to the extreme to lose an additional 3 lbs by tomorrow when my Son and I are taking a road trip to Hollywood to look around and shop and then going to visit Surrogate Family Members (who love to cook and feed people) who live in the area prior to his return flight home in only 2 days. *sighs*
But hey, I'll just extend the Goal to 15 April. LOL!
I was still feeling the High this morning after recording today's video (to be posted in a few hours) last night. Wow!
Well, my Son has 4 more days with his Gothic Warlock Dad and so far he has been really enjoying his visit. He even prepared Breakfast for us today and will prepare Dinner for us tonight. I think I did ok with him. LOL!
So now he's trying to talk some of his friends into coming over to swim in the pool and soak in the spa.
Sleep time.....What a day!
My Sister from another Mother, she and I are keeping each other motivated on our Weight Loss Journey.
I saw her YouTube post and it made me want to check on my own progress since 3/20/2019.
Weight: 218 lbs. (Holding steady)
Neck: 17.5" (Reduced by .5 inches)
Chest: 45.5" (Increased by 2 inches) * Added Push-ups
Waist: 42.5" (Reduced by .5 inches) * Added Crunches
So The Gothic Warlock Lair is indeed a smoker's home meaning smoking indoors is allowed, but only smoke that smells good. LOL!
To have a nice smoker's home, opening windows to air the place out, and maintaining an assortment of air fresheners such as febreze spray, fraganzia air freshener crystal beads, burning incense, etc., etc.,.....Is....A....Must!
It's also a MUST to continue to stimulate ALL 5 Senses so I must keep pleasant smelling odors around me.
Thank the Universe for the 99 Cents Store. Ha!
So after eating Panda Express, Denny's and a burger from some fast food joint due to my Son treating me, my weight 218 lbs weight increased to 222 lbs.
Then I ate some Lobster Tail, Crab Legs, Shrimp, and Biscuits from Red Lobster my Son treated me too, I took a couple of Sauna Treatments and I'm back at 218 lbs.
WTF is going on? LOL!
For the first time in more than 100 years, life expectancy in the US is declining. CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta reports.
Life expectancy in US drops for first time in modern history
So for flying out to spend a few weeks with me, I surprised my Son with Cash, his first Medical Glass (Bong/Dab Rig) Piece, Dab Tool, 2 Dragon Ball Z Rolling Trays he eyed while at a local Dispensary, a Torch and an Ashtray that matched the color of his glass. However, he decided he'll keep "MY" Weed Leaf ashtray he fell in love with and said I can keep his new ashtray. So now I have to buy a new weed leaf ashtray. LOL!
He has treated me to Breakfast at the local Denny's, Cannabis Meds he wanted me to try from the local dispensary, fast food since he has yet to purchase groceries for himself and has been eating out, and now he wants to go Go-Kart racing at a local business that offers inside racing.
I then treated him to having his ears re-pierced since he is now Medically Retired from the Army and he plans to re-grow his hair into Rasta Dreads (I don't judge). He discovered that the holes in his ears were not really completely closed so wouldn't take much to place new jewelry in and should heal in about 2 weeks.
Then, while I was caught up in the moment, and wanting to be touched by the hot, sexy piercing friend lady too, who is also somewhat of a YouTube Celebrity, Go-Go Dancer, Fire Pole Spinner, Hula-Hoop Dancer, Suspension (hooks in the back) Practitioner, former 420 Nurse, Bud Tender, Alternative Model, etc., etc., who also gave me my first and only Left-Ear Piercing, I decided to go ahead and have my Right Ear Pierced too to match my Son since we also got Father and Son matching Tattoos years ago when he graduated from High School. However, my new piercings will take the standard 2 months to fully heal since my left ear had to be stretched a bit for a larger size gage from 16 inches to 14 inches and the right ear has a brand new hole in it. Aaron, my Son, has Graduated from College with an AA Degree in the Medical Field that he refuses to pursue as a career, he graduated from U.S. Army Boot Camp and Military Police Schools, but sadly was hit twice by bad drivers which resulted in multiple injuries to the degree that he could no longer continue Military Operations at the level required to sustain and progress in his Army Career so he was Medically Retired after less than only 3 years in service. He was then employed at a Winery in New York, became a New Father last year and now is looking to maybe relocating back to Southern California.
I'm happy he's spent the first week of his visit reconnecting with all of his old friends while also making new ones.
His second week will focus on Apartment Reviewing and researching Communities he feels he could afford to live in and we will be visiting them both in the day time and then at night.
My daily routine has mostly been thrown off schedule, but he's worth it.
As to be fair, I also sent my Daughter a cash gift since she can not as of yet travel with her two kids to visit me and apparently is searching for new employment since her Roadside Assistance Dispatcher job is closing down. The Struggle Is Real out in those streets, but that's why a Parent's Job Is Never Done!
So yeah, don't expect me to be on as much until my Son leaves. He only had a rental for the first week so now he has to either ask me to take him somewhere since he's not on my insurance to drive my vehicle after breaking my other vehicle and hiding the fact that he had obtained 2 traffic citations when he used to live here while going to college, ask friends to pick him up or Uber.
I almost felt negative posting my videos late and having my daily routine interupted in some way due to my Son's visit, but my Son is worth the sacrifice.
He always has been, always was and always will be.
I, like many other kids would either say it out loud or think it in our head when we were young and upset at our parents how we never asked to be born!
No, Mom and Dad were horny...they Fucked or made Love or whatever and boom...I'm here!
Then when I grew older and became a parent myself, like many others, I realized what I had done to my own Son purely out of selishf desires and although he is a blessing, I'll always feel in debted to being the cause of him being in this Great Experiement called "Life". So he's like 30%-40% Spoiled.
he looks so much like his dad. Great video. Thanks Bro for sharing this. The King and Prince of Awesomeness!!
Wow, I've been VERY busy today.
I just now finished editing Tuesday's video, but not yet recorded Wednesday's.
Great News! I repaired my refrigirator and saved myself from spending almost a thousand dollars. Now that's good Karma.
My Son made it here safely. I didn't know how much I missed him until he walked through the front door. We've been catching up for hours and now he is here with a couple of his friends he left behind when he went off to the Army, sadly, due to injuries, that career didn't last long at all. Less than 3 years. However, the government will be taking good care of him...For Life!
Bandit got his hair cut and teeth brushed by the Groomers. He always look so young when he gets his hair cut. LOL!
Well, as son as I can, I'll be Sauna Seshing.
My Son smokes Backwoods....Not me. He's been medicating what seems like non-stop since he arrived. LOL!
Lastly, yes...I purchased my 70th Glass Piece today. I love even numbers. Ha!
Well, my Son is due in today for a 2 week visit.
He's scouting out the area prior to his current plan to relocate back to the best state in the Union.
Sadly, my Granddaughter got sick and couldn't make the trip so she stayed home with her Mom.
So the special trip just to meet her for the first time is back on.
I'm going to try to edit and upload my Tuesday video prior to 6 p.m. PST, but if I don't make it, fuck it! I'm RETIRED!
Think I'll schedule Bandit's Grooming today.
Dayum, things which are made will some day break. This I must remind myself ALL the time in order to remain in control of my emotions when shit breaks or just isn't working as it did when new.
My GE Refrigerator is once again the focus of attention. Bubbles developed around the ice and water dispenser which then turn into what looked like rust and then little holes in that spot appeared in the door leaking water and frosting up the inside of the freezer. The refrigerator side doesn't even stay cold since all the air is leaking out. I was wondering where the water was coming from on the floor. Thought it was the door being left open or something. Maybe even something going on underneath the fridge. Nope, just the 17-Year-Old Fridge breaking down.
I attempted to clog the holes with seleant and will find out if that works in a couple of hours, if not, time to drop a little less than a grand on a new one.
I agree with much of this... except that El Douchebag is a big part of the problem.
Racism, Antisemitism, and xenophobia have always existed. I do not blame El Douchebag for their creation. But when he helps fan the flames of hatred and intolerance, he does not do it as the crazy ass wack job living in some compound with a white pointy sheet in his closet, he does it as the person guiding our destiny.
The world watches the USA, and is laughing. And as other leaders of the world, and former leaders of us, weep over the deaths of innocents, El Douchebag whines over being used as a reason for a psychopath's rampage.
I weep for the innocent and their families. I applaud New Zealand for such quick action to stem future mass shootings. And I condemn all acts of hatred and violence by those who harm others simply because they don't look or act the same.
And mostly, I wish for everyone to their eyes and realize that the only way to make HUMANITY great, is to do it as one people helping everyone up.
The tedious part of being a YouTuber/WeedTuber is the editing your video step.
I keep getting distracted by other things online.
Almost done though then it's the long wait of Saving the Project then another long wait to upload it to YouTube.
EVERYTHING is made out of Invisible Energy including Souls.
"In physics, the law of conservation of energy states that the total energy of an isolated system cannot change—it is said to be conserved over time.
Energy can be neither created nor destroyed, but can change form; for instance, chemical energy can be converted to kinetic energy." https://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/75616/why-cant-we-destroy-energy
Therefore, something of us, the incorporeal essence of all living beings, continues on, but just on a different plane of existence that has yet to be proven by Science.
Time to throw on some rags and head out for a mini road trip to obtain a Glass Art Piece I've had my eyes on.
So this month I'm going to try my Surrogate Niece at cataloging about a 1000 comic books that I've collected since I was a kid.
Cleaning to earn herself some much-needed spending cash last month wasn't her forte.
This project should give her some spending cash over the next 5 months.
I'm all done editing today's video and it's in the process of saving. Once completed, I'll then upload to YouTube and other platforms.
Tomorrow I celebrate 6-Years as a Pagan and Founder of my own Spiritual Path Of MOGYOLOGY: The 5 Elements of Warlock Awesomeness (Serenity, Happiness, Love, Sex, and Magick) as I use that as an umbrella living 4 other spiritual lifestyles (Cannabis, Occult, Gothic, and BDSM).
How to celebrate it this year on tomorrow is still a work in progress. Maybe I'll record myself taking a hit from each of my Glass Medical Devices.
Wow, a new Peanut Butter Brownie Edible I've been eating on (1) has no hint of cannabis and (2) within 2 hours it had me literally dosing off mid-anything I was doing if I was laying down.
I added a small table inside my Sauna. I got tired of reaching down to get shit.
It fits well and looks good. It's really a One-Person Sauna, although they advertised it as a Two-Person, but two people average size adults could fit in there at the same time, but they will be pretty close to those side heaters. They'd have to keep a towel over the arm that's closest to the heater.
Think I'll show it off in the Wednesday video I'm recording in about 15 minutes.
For waiting for 2 hours for the smoke shop to open due to the owner being delayed, I got a sweet deal of a price for a piece of Cannabis Artwork and yes, of course, a little Dab Rig.
Now to get back to my daily routine.
A Smoke Shop that is over 1.5 hours late to open. SMH
I know I have nothing but time in Retirement, but I don't enjoy waiting. I would leave, but the drive is about 20 minutes and I try not to leave home much. I don't do Daylight nor
Mundanes for long.
So far today:
- Sauna Sesh #1
- First Meal of the Day consisted of 2 peaches.
- Assist a Cannabis Delivery Service in correcting a posting on Weedmaps
- Drove into town with Bandit to get cash to order a type of medicine that is known to be very potent with a high THC level. This bit of pleasure is in celebration of my 6th-Year Anniversary of having converted to Paganism while also founding my own Spiritual Path of MOGYOLOGY.
- Purchased my 56th Glass Medical Device
- Gave to an (allegedly) Homeless Vet
- Returned home and ordered my meds
- Meds delivered
- Ate 2nd Meal of the Day which consisted of 2 slices of Pizza!
- Do Crunches and Push-ups
- Sauna Sesh #2
- Sauna Sesh #3
- Record Monday's video
- Bandit Play Time
I do enjoy being a Hedonist.
Ethical Hedonism is the idea that all people have the right to do everything in their power to achieve the greatest amount of pleasure possible to them.
It is also the idea that every person's pleasure should far surpass their amount of pain.
So I went about 20 minutes out of town to another Smoke Shop that I was referred to by the main local Smoke Shop I frequent.
Yup, I went way over my budget and grabbed up 4 new pieces.
Then I ordered my meds from a new business and although they really went above and beyond with their 'New Patient' Goody-Bag, they did make an error in giving me a product which was not what I ordered and was $5 more expensive than what I did order and then tried to tell me it was what I ordered, but that the picture was just different since they pulled it from another site.
Ummmm, no....I've been researching and medicating with Cannabis since Jan 2017 and I know the difference between the different concentrates, but hey, I'll keep what they sent and simply order the correct product tomorrow from another business.
So now it's time to bring on the HEAT!
Another one of my goals is to upload one video per day (M-F).
This week (being the first week trying this) I went beyond my goal with a total of 6 videos uploaded to YouTube/The WeedTube.
Today marks 3-Years since I adopted Bandit at 4 months old from my Surrogate Sister's family.
Think I'll go into town and purchase something for my Puppy-Dog. I love that little guy. So many small things he does that just reflects his hyper, but loving personality. Quick learning too. Studies my routine and adjusts his own routine to accommodate mine.
I got him on a Dental plan this year for his B-Day last year and his first appointment is next month.
I've been viewing Weedmaps and narrowed my Home Cannabis Delivery Service to about 4 business that I will choose to do service with.
My Bong/Dab Rig goal was 50, but I counted my Glass and found I'm up to 55 sooooo, my new goal is 100 Glass Medical Devices! I collect it for the artwork as well.
Heading out of town to check out a new Smoke Shop, then food, then home to order Meds and then play catch up on Sauna Seshing for today.
So True !
I have to disagree on the object part due to it's my goal, to finish building my house, which is an object but I will be really happy the day it's finished. The foundation is down though!!! And well let me say this... as for a person, the day Lili and I marry I will be a happy man! Goals are extremely important though and to make realistic goals. I think sometimes people make unrealistic goals and set them selfs up for failure... For example, when people go on diets, let's say someone weights 150 lbs, they make a goal to loose... 20 lbs in 2 weeks... when they should make a goal of say, 3 lbs a week. I think sometimes people set themselves up to fail with unrealistic goals. When I inherited my land my goal was to have my house built the first year. There is really only let's say off top of my head 5 months here which to build before the snows come... and the blueprints I have well... cost and such it's going to really take me about 2 more years to finish the house. And so I rambled a lot. LOL I have had 2 drinks, whiskey... My favorite drink is Chivas Regal, sprite and lemon. I am on my 2nd.
It's ok to disagree with anything anyone shares.
I think the point is People are fickle and come and go, Objects are made to one day break or they may get stolen, leaving your Happiness at the mercy of whatever happens to them. However, one's Goals (realistic ones as you stated) are something completely all your own thereby leaving Happiness up to YOU and YOUR own actions and not the actions of another or what happens to your objects.
Happiness is an inside job. One's own responsibility regardless of People and Objects one may place value in.
But again.....It's fine to disagree anytime.
I challenge EVERYONE to go for 5-Days NOT allowing the "legal" actions of others that are not physically harming anyone to negatively affect you in some manner.
No calling 9-1-1.
No reporting to some other authority.
Just LIVE your Beliefs and Best Life and allow the same for EVERYONE ELSE...For just 5-Days!!!
If you don't feel less Stress in your life during those 5-Days, maybe Professional Behavioural Counseling should be considered.
Just my personal opinion.
And it's back to rain after two days of dryness, but at least I got the yards groomed.
I really want to do an outdoor sesh so I'll just have to be patient.
I'm up to a total of 55 Water Bongs/Dabrigs (not including 2 Hookahs and a number of Dry Herb Pipes).
I just love glass artwork. I love the sound of percolating water.
I'll be editing a Bonus Video day to post later today and recording a Thursday ASMR video later tonight to post tomorrow.
But for now, I think I'll take my 1st Sauna Sesh while listening to the latest BlackPeopleKink.com Podcast.
Maybe it's just me and my age, but when I first heard of "bullying" via the internet, the first thing I did after spitting out my drink and laughing just a bit too hard and then regaining my composure long enough to picture in my head so many 'X' icons, hide comments features, hell, the damn power button every electronic device I can think of comes with, as ways to shut off the negativity one may encounter over the internet.
When did bullying evolve from a larger stronger person "physically" harming or threatening to harm another if they did not do as the larger stronger person demanded of them or a person with more wealth and with more power harassing those with less wealth and power?
It's like being bullied over the telephone. Why not just disconnect the call and block the number. Better yet, don't answer calls you don't recognize. If it's that important, they'll take the time to leave a message.
How about being bullied while sitting in the driver's seat of an automobile, engine running, nothing in front of you preventing you from simply driving away, but noooo, you rather sit there fighting off punches being thrown at you through the window you refuse to let up.
Is it me or have a generation of people been made overly Soft, Sensitive, Weak and have become a "Victim" crying at every act of "Digital" Berating or seeing something happening that is "legal", but they just don't like seeing it so 9-1-1 they dial?
It's like a child screaming for their parents to stop the dog, who is chained up, from barking at them instead of simply removing themselves from the same general area as the barking dog.
But nooooo........they cry yelling they have no power to defend themselves or remove themselves from negativity and desperately want for someone else to swoop in and save the day.
To do what they themselves could actually do, but without an audience.
I don't know.....Maybe I just feel it's not really what's going on that's the issue, it's wanting the "Attention" due to what's going on that's the real issue.
So, if you are reading this and it's hitting you in the "feels"......I have a gift for you.
That's it exactly. It would be all too easy to close out the page and leave it alone.
Hahahaha....so what youre saying is the country gave birth to a bunch of bitches?!?!
You dont say!!!
You got to make a gif pointing to a chair in a corner with the words: Liliancat, Dakotah time out!
You pointing to a chair...
I'll try to remember that. LOL!
Admit it y'all just want to be the chair she puts her ass in...lol.
Lol so you saying you her daddy? For real?
Nope! Her Brother from another Mother.
I fell asleep last night and accidentally left the Gym Area's window open while airing out any leftover cannabis smoke from my Sauna Sesh.
Needless to say, it was a bit cool in the Lair when I woke-up.
The heat is on and I'll be in the sauna again in just over an hour from now.
1st Sauna Sesh of the day is complete.
Time to edit my Monday video and in an hour, eat my first meal of the day which includes "meat".
A mental disorder, also called a mental illness or psychiatric disorder, is a behavioral or mental pattern that causes significant distress or impairment of personal functioning. ... Mental disorders are usually defined by a combination of how a person behaves, feels, perceives, or thinks.
If someone's mental illness is making itself known by way of acting out or partaking in shenanigans that result in "physical or structural" harm/damage to the person or someone or something else, then society locks them away for the safety of citizens and for their own safety.
If someone's mental illness is making itself known by way of acting out or partaking in shenanigans that DO NOT result in "physical or structural" harm/damage to the person or someone or something else, but is highly annoying to the point of causing emotional distress, that is NOT the problem of the mentally ill person, that is an issue YOU must solve yourself as YOU allow the actions of others to affect your personal well-being.
As I commented before, one can't argue, yell at, place on blast, hate, or temporarily suspend a Mental Illness Away no more than one can argue, yell at, place on blast, hate, or temporarily suspend a Physical Disability away.
However, you can work on yourself. Your stress, your anger, and how to deal with other beings whose brains are wired differently than your own.
Wow, I recorded two videos on Thursday only to have to record them again on Friday resulting in a long day Friday.
I need to invest in a phone camera that has more space. My phone shuts off if recording beyond 31 minutes and then Google Drive won't even upload a size that large so either I have to upload the unedited version to YouTube and make it public just long enough to convert it into an mp4. file just to be able to download it to my computer for editing or simply redo the video and make it shorter.
So now, I'm up to posting 5 videos per week (M-F) as a hobby.
I mean, heck, I've combined 4 Spiritual Lifestyles all under the MOGYOLOGY umbrella and since I have to medicate at least 3 times per day, why not have some fun with it while also providing alternative information and giving others someone to medically sesh along with?
Anyway, after achieving my weight goal for March 1st, it's time to work on my weight goal for April 1st which may be really tough as I've not seen 215 lbs since being considered out of weight-standards for the Marine Corps while on my last tour of active duty service due to my health issues as a result of my time spent serving in Iraq War.
But, I've never been afraid of a challenge...sooooooo
As I figured, I end up purchasing not 1, not 2, but 3 Glass Medical Devices (Bongs and Dab Rigs).
They were just too amazing to pass up.
I also went grocery shopping.
Next, I purchased more meds to see me through the entire month of March as I medicate and share it with the world by way of video uploads.
Lastly, I'm only having flavored water and fruit today until Midnight. I'm not leaving 220 lbs. In fact, I'm sure I weigh less than that now and I'm going to take a Sauna Sesh Treatment on top of that.
