The Something is TBD.
Okay, the TBD didn't really happen, so lets keep it vague and still somewhat measurable.
1) Something about Food
I need to keep logging my calories, but with the inclusion of multiple provided lunches at work, it's hard to accurately track. So on days that I'm getting a lunch (or being social on the weekend), I'm going to go for an IF approach. Thankfully the days I'm provided lunch at work are Wednesday and Thursday, which means they won't make my life difficult for aikido. I have accepted that my job, IF, and training do not mesh well. I don't have enough in my control to really keep the timings of my meals in such a way that they can fit my bench work times, give me ample room to digest before aikido, and then have a meal after aikido. My attempts at 16-8 inevitably turn into more like 12-12, or 14-10. Weekends I still do semi-fast, anyway.
Still aiming to have my weight be 210 or less by mid November, and my last weight in had me at 217, which is nearly 10 pounds lower than when I started at the beginning of last challenge. So at least progress is being made. Even if I had a lot of food and beverage at my house warming this weekend.
2) Something about Aikido
We are still trying to launch a fundraiser for, well, funds for the dojo to move. And I need to work on some social media outreach, photography, and interviews we wish to work on. Also there's the whole teaching fiasco that is just sucky and definitely influencing my brain. (Though fun conversation last night with the other 6th dan senior instructor is the fact that she also finds all of this ridiculous and she said she'd talk to Sensei to see if she can get a better outcome.) . Tack on the fact that I'm trying to get back to building myself back to a semi-regular schedule and that's that.
3) Something about Houses
There are a few things I want to get settled before the weather turns too cold here. I have two radiators that have small leaks around the valves to turn them on and off. It's either a very easy fix, or a very hard fix. The easy fix means I should be able to do it. The hard fix means I have to hire someone. On top of that there are steam vent valves that need replacing on some of the units, so they don't whistle the night away once warmed. I also would like to install a smart thermostat, but am also 100% certain it'll be more involved (from what I saw I need a C-wire for most smart thermostats, and my furnace is old enough that it doesn't have one). That's to say nothing of the whole "How well insulated in my house" question that I won't know until Winter actually hits. But if I can spend a bit more money to clear out the big issues, hopefully it'll be easier down the road.
4) Something about Socializing
Being in the new house without a roommate is nice, but also means I now lack and built-in socializing that living with someone provides. Honestly, no idea if I actually care about it, but I should probably try to have one or two more social things added to my calendar to get me out of the house. I guess. This Saturday I'm volunteering at my cousin's brewery/going to a birthday celebration, I need to have AgentSka and his girlfriend over for dinner at some point, and there are a few other "what's ups" that might be happening by the end of the challenge. So try to get a bit out of my comfort zone I guess. Maybe.
Somethings are exhausting.
