    Hiya! I am Rookie I love a lot of things... Horses, archery, sewing, reading, art, eating, things and stuff.... I tend to be the most busy lazy person ever. I guess something nerdy about me is I love watching videos of miniature cooking, people "unboxing" MREs, and recreating video game and/or historical foods. Did I mention I love food? My goals are to lose weight and gain some confidence! What better place to do that then at NF

    It was a good extra long weekend! Though Sunday night my hip decided it was no longer a functioning thing. I was hoping it would go away but it has not yet. It almost feels like it needs to pop. Oh and my dad brought home my jacket! so yay to that. I finished 1 patch and have 2 more small ones to go.

    I got the dishwasher back together and it appears to still work lol. Not sure if it cleans better. I made chicken souvlaki with asparagus and lemon potatoes for tonight's meal. And I got some tazyiki to have with it. Nom nom nom. Gonna be a good meal. And in typical Rookie fashion.... I forgot my cosplay jacket at the cottage hahaha gosh. My dad is still there I think.. so I texted asking that he kindly bring it. If he forgets I'll just go without the jacket I guess lol or sew a new one

    SO I am attempting to "change the filter" of the dishwasher. But you know what... after literaly undoing as many screws as I can.. am not convinced it has a typical filter like most dishwashers. It is so old that whirlpool doesn't have the manual for it on their website and a google search literally yields nothing. Anyways I got to a layer of dishwasher that literally had white slime which is probably a mix of food particles, paper, glue from stickers and dishwasher soap. I cleaned that as best as I could and I am starting to put everything back together but of course one of the screws is now like "nah man" and I am dripping of sweat. So I am just taking a break lol. UGH. I just want a new dishwasher but they are more money than I thought they were lol Who knew a move more could literally be dismantle a dishwasher, clean it and put it back together. :/ I will probably not do my summary of points until Tuesday when I am back in the office... if that lol I may just make my new thread.

    I had some wins today (not having pancakes for breakfast, not eating any chocolate or having 2 butter tarts, having steak and corn for lunch) but I had some losses (having 1 tart, a banana muffin and small ice cap). Today was a good day though. I got my sister to jump in the lake lol brrrrrr. I hit my knee on a rock though.. owwww lol. Had awesome lunch. Did some archery but the mosquitos were really bad. Got my other boot done. Got home... Deposited money, fed doggos, unloaded car and threw dirty clothes in wash, fell out of my garage in slow motion onto other knee lol, picked up food for Rook (everything is closed Monday), mowed the front lawn, started weeding and cleaning up some of the flower bed in the front. Let dogs out before the rain starts. Now I'm blobbing on the couch waiting for someone to ask what's for dinner lol.

    So..I don't think RP app has realized I didn't continue my subscription.... So Imma keep trying that until it does lol Breakfast today was Greek yogurt parfait and some Turkey pepperettes. I am actually looking forward to my protein shakes when I get home lol. I got stuff to make peppermint mocha ones. I ended up just getting chocolate protein powder for now because I only was able to make it to Walmart before I left. My family is hard to eat good around.. not because they are not supportive but because they are snackers too lol. My sister has been eating all the things.

    Hey! I'm at the cottage right now. It's a short visit but it's been fun. We are heading back sometime tomorrow early evening I think. I got my sister's shirt and shorts done. Today we painted her shoes. As for mine I haven't done much while at the cottage. I got the straps all sewn to the pants (probably the last picture I posted). I recut the side thigh squares that hold the thigh straps. I got the butt scarf sewn and I need to add velcro. I removed the other boot zipper and got the elastic sewn to the new zipper. So little progress lol. 1 week until it needs to be done. Ohhhhh yes that sounds so fun! I love Pirates. I can't wait to see your progress on your sheath. A curved place will make it tricky but could make it fun too? Maybe you could have one of the curved sides laced up with leather? It's awesome I've inspired you. I love crafty time lol

    So I have no clue what the difference is lol I do see a lot of people in the RP group talking about casein though. For some reason I was thinking casein was more carb heavy but again I have never looked it up lol. So as long as I can find it and they are the same.. I really don't have much of a preference. All I know is I am not a fan of the Vegan super fruit powder lollll So some updates... 1. Protein shake in the morning during work weeks really working for me. I am not a huge fan of replacing a meal with a shake but that being said I have trouble getting enough protein and I just do not have the time in the morning to make food. So it has prevented me from even wanting or feeling the need to go to starbucks. I do miss bagels in the morning but the shake I don't feel I need it. My 2 week RP trial is done tomorrow. I do not think I will continue with it at this point in time. I would however like to continue tracking macros because it helps me keep accountable... where if I am just counting calories I am like "Well.. i could totally just eat this ice cream parfait and it fits in my macros" and thats where my spiral starts. I am going to say I learnt a lot though and it really helped me figure out what foods have what macros (which is something I had trouble figuring it out before when I tried IIFYM). So I think I will aim to follow the IIFYM style of eating. I would like to try that for 2 weeks and see how I feel and I am hoping I can continue hitting my calorie goal and not exceeding it lol.

    Week 4, Tuesday Food tracked Calories not exceeded 2L water Riding day Yesterday I went out for lunch with coworkers to Boston Pizza. I chose something that fit ish into my calories. I only ate half and put half in a container almost right away. I had planned on eating the other half for dinner but then realized it would bring me over my calories for the day by 400. So instead I ended up pawning it off on some barn rats (teenagers). Daisy and my ride went good yesterday. I had her really framing up and working from her butt. She is so heavy though lol and my shoulders and biceps are screaming today. But I am proud of our progress. Also the mud almost swallowed me up lol My barn owner was showing me how she gets into the field without getting hardly any mud on her. So I was falling and I guess my boots are just too short because a few steps I took in the bad area ended in my having mud go down my boots. And then I stopped because I was laughing too hard lolllllll and shes like "Oh noooo keep moving... come on!" and she threw me a lead rope and dragged me out lol. Gosh. I am going tomorrow during the day to clip Daisy and Gren so I get to go out there twice lolll pretty sure I am just going to wear shorts and water shoes if I can find some. Today I got my first Starbucks in awhile and it wasn't as nice as my usual morning shake but this morning the shake just wasn't happening. Between sore and sleepy .. then trying to look nice for work because big clients are coming in... yup lol just wasn't happening. I did not get my usual bagel with it so yay there. It did not taste as good as usual (could be I actually weaned myself off them?). The plan though is to get some sort of chocolate mocha mint thing working with my protein shakes in the morning. Because I just love that flavour... it is my jam and I think it is possible. My current morning shake is caramel coffee peanut butter lol So some choice would be nice. Ohhhh and my boss boss was like "There are donuts in Ts office" and I was like "NO!" lol and hes like "Oh you are also doing the health thing too? thats good thats good". My one coworker is back on keto lol so he too said No! to the donut. Boss boss man is big on fitness and health. I think he has a lot of bro science but its cool having supportive coworkers/bosses. To get done today... - Hem and sew sisters top - Hem and sew sisters shorts - Find shorts - Maybe grocery shop for when I am away - Start to pack for cottage
