  1. Kind of failed today on all the food stuff. Bleh. Did a cute art! "Music" + "Float" for a two for one. Also did this design for my ESO Guild.
  2. That said, the game came out in 2015! I played for a year, took a year off, played for 6 months. That got me to 2000. The last 300 hours were since March. Um, I got a cheapo one from Amazon because I was not about to spend a car's worth downpayment on lifting stuff. Seriously, why it so expensive. I am really happy with it! I got only a 6' bar because I don't see myself getting up to anything heavy - especially without a rack! (I had to get to squat position by deadlifting it, then (is it clean? or press?) up and over my head, and to my back!) So it's great because it's more weight than I can do with dumbbells! But it's not gonna be lifting heavy until situations change or I buy a rack to keep in my CEO's office? >.> LOL. It was this one! The 7' one is only $150 right now! Over a few years! It's ok! It's fine. Everything is fine! So last night, one of my bestest buddies logged into ESO and well - all my other intentions went out the window lol! I am not going to blame the game addiction though- the truth is the socializing with a friend was worth pushing some other things aside. I will just get them done today is all. It was a good time- we just caught up, talked about life and a little bit of game tips, but mostly just hung out and caught up. It also got me into bed with lights out about 7 minutes late. Not terrible, but enough that I marked myself a red square. I still need to figure out how these goals equate to damage and health for the boss fight haha. Have an idea to incorporate yesterday's music prompt, with today's float. We'll see if I can pull it off! Trackings behind Spoiler.
  3. Be careful if you do..... lol. Today I did a strength workout! With a barbell! In my CEO's office! LOL. It felt so good to have a barbell on my back again! I'd been using dumbbells and other stuff since lockdown because we have made a "firewall" between warehouse and office. No one but one person goes between the two- so I can't use our snazzy box we built back there for working out. But my manager said he'd bring in some of the plates he took home, if I just had my own barbell here. (His are in use daily so not an option.) I did! And now I get to throw the bar around. ❤️ Heaven! Pure heaven. A customer also sent in a Frankenstein box of candy. But I had just 3 pieces as my afternoon snack today so I feel pretty in control there so far. Further update later!

  5. My fear also- I eat through fullness regularly. I even say 'I have a dessert stomach' because I could be full to the brim, but fit dessert in. Whole bag of candy? Sure~! I feel sick! Guess how I medicate? MORE CANDY! Like there is a logic switch I did not come with. Who would reach for a 56th piece of candy, when they literally just left the bathroom sick from candy? <.< Um. Yeah heh. Tracking works best for me. But! I also can just go get a meal out and be like 'Ain't tracking, will just be reasonable'.
  6. Ooooh that's a good question, because I am super guilty of this too. I gave IE a shake for a bit, and once I break my addiction to bad portions, I am usually fine without tracking. Or with it. I've reached a point where it doesn't make me rage hehe! I've been itching to get back to some music stuff, but just no spare plates on the hobby-lazy-susan right now.
  7. A few more Inktobers from the past few days, prompts of: RIP, DIG and BUDDY. (Maintaining ESO subject material.)

The only thing that had slipped was art, and Inktober has really helped get me some inspiration back on that. So we'll give this a go. I haven't stepped on the scale in weeks. As I know the exact formula above works - I am not GOING to look at the scale until end of challenge. I will weigh in (my scale holds measurements) but not look, and then weigh in again at the end. Here goes...
  9. OMG OMG. I NEVER PUT THEM TOGETHER! AND NOW I LOVE US EVEN MORE!! Commander Shepherd and Shepherd Book. TWO OF MY MOST FAVORITE THINGS ON THE EARTH!
  10. Here! Following my young kohai's progress! So glad to see you back. I am just following and posting hi's now. Will try to catch up soon!
  11. I'm here! Behind already but here! So good to hear you finding some things you feel good about sustaining. LOVE IT. I may have to try this intuitive eating schtick again. But not until I break the cookie and candy habit. (Just before the holidays, I'm such a noob.)
  12. Oh man I love everything about your challenge and goals. You and I have a lot of the same feelings with fall, and a lot of shared solutions! I am for sure following along.
  13. Heeey Thanks Wolf. I forget how awesome this place is when you keep mega-engaged on it. This first round of support and encouragement brought such a smile to my face last night. I think for the next challenge, I am going to completely shut down Facebook, and only come here for good people support without all the super heightened opinions and frustrations of the other place. Thanks Cap'n! I always feel a shot of pure badass invigoration when you stop by my thread! It Tank is the wise shepherd of the guild, you're the commanding officer with the big grin and the strong hands to pull up a fallen recruit. (I honestly don't know the other leaders too much, except Raxie, duh, but there's still debate on whether or not we are the same person.) See! I was just talking about this. Thanks Shep! (Wait, I am commander shep!) Er, confusing! I took the first big step. I ordered a barbell for my office at work lol! (The one I had in the back warehouse, is both still off limits due to covid rules at our warehouse, and also my manager took all the barbells home. He offered to bring some plates in for me, but I needed my own metal stick.) Thanks girl! So good to see your fa- er name? on the forums again. I prefer it when you are not a stranger to these parts. Welcome back! Hah, lower the bar! The bar I just ordered. Yeah! I will lift it up, and lower it down! Then lift it up and lower it down again. Good advice on this. Need to do small things at a time to get routine and confidence back. These are also true things! Just the sort of info I'd expect out of Good, Advice is my middle name, Doug! I know what I need to do. Just need to do it! Going to get some beat saber in today and maybe some art before I have to run my big RP event on ESO tonight. I was a super dork, and I recorded video of my character, then edited it to a blue filter to mimic 'memory or speaking stones' from Elder Scrolls lore, then turned them into gifs and added a message to it. These will be hints that I share in discord along the way for my guild mates to come rescue my trapped Nord Dragonknight. It's my very first live event that I am running so I am a bit nervous. But, it should be good. People seemed pretty into the spoiler-teasers I've been putting out. We've had like six straight days of clouds and grey, and cold temps, so my mood is really getting hit hard with the SAD season. Add in expected sharks and it's no wonder I am flailling for motivation. Also, three nights in a row of poor sleep. Ugh. Tomorrow will be better!
  14. Some art from Zero Week's #inktober
  15. Also has been consumed by the gloom monster. Must break rut. Wants to break rut. Must get back to healthy habits. Will get back to healthy habits. Just as soon as she figures out how... Things I have done in the past that have made me feel good, and be healthy: Lift weights at least two times a week, some weeks three. Get sweaty on the off days. Eat appropriate amounts of real food that nourishes. Does not play a zillion hours of same video game each week. Does things that involve creating. Socialize with friends. From these things, a challenge will be born ... maybe with a theme. Definitely with her accountabilibuddies.
