    Do You Even Work Here? Tanktimus' New Year Challenge

    (Yes, I know this is an incorrect use of the meme). As most of you probably know, I started running the forums for Nerd Fitness last challenge. This new year is as much about being healthy on a personal level as it is helping the forums grow and evolve. Part of that means spreading my net wider than the Ranger Corps so I can relate to all the guilds. I'm still a Ranger and always will be, but I'll be following people in every guild to keep a better idea on what is going on with the forums as a whole. Throw self care into the mix, and comes the realization that it's wise to follow about the same number of threads as before, so that means not following everybody every challenge. Now on to my own challenge: I still plan on making zero week count for my challenge since we have just come off the holiday break. I'm writing this challenge out about the middle of that break and so far I've been fairly inactive. I'm hoping to get back on the ball when these forums go live. Here are my Goals: 7 NF Beginner Body Weight Workouts 4 NF Beginner Kettlebell Workouts 4 NF Yoga Sessions 5 Walks, 2 miles minimum (Using the dreadmill is ok if walking outside isn't practical) Nutrition wise I still plan on practicing Intuitive Eating, albeit with a caveat I'll discuss once the challenge is underway.

    It's always nice to flee a toxic job.

    Yep, in the early 2000s I still had to write out both pronouns in papers.

    You have nothing to feel sorry for. You were honest about how you were feeling. How can we help you if you don't let us know? You did exactly what you are supposed to do. You reached out to friends for help. It was heartwarming to hear you have a great potential friend right next door.

    Do You Even Work Here? Tanktimus' New Year Challenge

    Thanks! We didn't get pics. Are my memories of the event an hallucination? I don't play house flipper, but I do love looking at floor plans or houses with that in mind. We had a blast with Wolfie, took him out for pizza and hung out for another couple of hours. He didn't have a lot of free time, but we had a blast with him.

    Nerd Fitness Character Levels

    I don't know the answer to that. I recommend emailing contact@nerdfitness.com as that will get the question to people who do know the answer.

    Are you forgetting Mr. Paul Hogan? I see you've played knifey-spoony before!

    RES: If I could turn back time

    Don't forget, you can ask for help.

    All hail Amazon prime. If Google is a metaphor for God's omniscience, then Amazon Prime is a metaphor for God's bountiful provision. And that's awesome about good employer actions.

    The Silver Archer: Imperfect

    It's great you can get to work. Is this like banking hours that will get paid out once the shutdown ends?

    True. For pastoral care, it's wise to remember we never truly understand why certain things happen. Dang right. Today is a good day. Yesterday I got a kettlebell workout in while at the police station. I did not cook, we went out with a friend. Today we went to prayer again, it was good. I have decided to make the best of my situation and have a good attitude about the transfer at work. For lunch today I cooked beef strips with salt, pepper, red wine vinegar and "Greek Seasoning." I set that aside and browned some onion and garlic in the skillet, then mixed it with Full Fat "Greek" yogurt (I know DarK_Raider sometimes pokes around here, hence putting Greek in quotation marks out of respect for his culinary sensibilities). I served it with roasted eggplant (eggplant, avocado oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and balsamic vinegar in the oven for 20 minutes at 400) and roasted white potatoes (chopped those, then mixed with paprika, salt, pepper, garlic powder, white wine vinegar, parsley and avocado oil in the oven at 400 degrees for 40 minutes). I put feta cheese on the potatoes. We are going to look at a house today. We want to buy in the summer, so the house we see today will sell well before that, but it's fun to look at houses. Wolfie is in town for Pax South, so we are meeting him for dinner tonight!

    Pork and beef are interchangeable in terms of instantpot settings.

    I would suggest to you that acting on the anger can be a good thing, depending on what you do. Using or to fuel a workout, channeling it into some form of art, or even letting it motivate you to make positive changes are all examples of good actions that come from anger.

    Free diving sounds really cool. If you decide to do it I want to hear all about it.

    You'll find burglar bars in bad neighborhoods in the US, but even there you don't find many fenced in front yards. The backs are usually fenced in, and that's where families have their privacy.

    It is not stupid! Your emotions are never stupid, nor are they ever smart. They are never wise, nor foolish, neither are they ever good or bad. They simply are. Any normal person would be angry at having to stay late at work because something was scanned wrong. Even if you didn't have plans that were important to you there would still be ample reason to feel angry. It's never wrong to feel an emotion.

    Korranation’s perfect animal crossing town

    There are deer all over the medical center. When I used to work overnights I had to drive between two hospitals and I'd often see Deer in parking lots or in the streets. I've often thought about working my way up to walking the entire stretch of the greenbelt one time.
