    Jett's Trail

    My primary goal right now is to lose some fat by improving the quality and decreasing the quantity of what I eat. To that end, I need to do some general food logging right now, to establish a baseline for what a "normal" amount of food is. I've calculated that my maintenance calories are about 1700/day right now. That's my goal for the next week or two, to get used to the amount. Previously, I'd assumed that maintenance was about 2000, but I've been doing a very slapdash sort of calculation for the last few weeks to keep myself around 2000 cals, and not seen any weight loss - in fact, a slight gain. If 1700 is correct, that would make sense. I also need to increase my water intake, as I'm perpetually thirsty, and it gives me a headache. Living in the Los Angeles heat, it's important to stay hydrated... ETA: I didn't weigh myself right away, but I'm taking a guess that my starting weight is about 144 lbs. (Averaging the weighing I did a few weeks ago with the one from a few days after I started logging, which was actually about 4 lbs lighter.) Goal for this week: 1700/day 7/23 almond butter cookie (190 cal) cup of coffee w/creamer and splenda (~50 cal) ~4 cups of kimchee rice with egg (600 cal?) Tangerine La Croix Diet Coke snack crackers (150 cal) salmon + bok choi + rice (~650 cal) total: 1640 water: ~30oz (total liquid intake: ~58oz)
  2. Nerds, comrades, friends, GREETINGS! Welcome to........ The Big One. The start of the ULTRA. MEGA. SHAAR RESPAWN CHRONICLES. So a quick recap from my last challenge, if you’ve lost your mind in the interim (like me) or if you’re new to these bardly parts - TL;DR, my house sold and is about to close this week, I’ve separated from my partner of 11 years (we live together and are still extremely close, which may make this harder), I’m quitting my job of 6.5 years in 2 weeks, and in the last week of August we’re loading up all of our crap to make the final road trip to move out of NC to MA for me, and NYC for them. Oh, and I’ll be bringing my heavily drugged-up anxiety ball of a cat. >:] Phew. Needless to say this a big, if not the biggest, turning point of my life. There’s a lot at play here mentally, emotionally... everything-ly, it’s been a lot of work to get to this point, and it’s finally here, and HOO BOY HOWDY BUCKLE UP YOUR SEATBELTS KIDS. My last few months have been nothing short of unpredictable and chaotic, and pretty much every aspect of my life has been in a quiet flux and is about to change real soon. Neat!! *^_^* (I’m v. much looking forward to the end result, FWIW!!!) So, my last few previous challenges have all led up to this one. The big one. The start of the real deal mega-frickin’ respawn. And, like the previous challenges, this one has only one goal - survive. I know I can do it, I’ve gotten through so much already, I only hope I don’t take a massive beating along the way. It’s like when you’re getting close to the boss room, and there’s a nicely placed save point, and you’re just kinda like “....Oh.” You know what’s coming. After the boss you get to like, go back to town and repair your gear and take a load off while the plot progresses. But you gotta do the hard work first. I’m going to do my best to take care of myself along the way - making sure I eat enough, get proper sleep, try not to let anxiety ruin my schedule of the aforementioned (because it has already), and try not to overthink things. One day at a time, take care of what’s in front of me, and then move on from there. Once this challenge is over everything will be done and dusted!... Right? (RIGHT.) And I’ll be able to continue my respawn and move on to more focused work - regaining my fitness, retooling my career, ENJOYING MYSELF, yes yes, all of these things! So I’ll get through it in the only way I know how - running and screaming and not letting anything get in my way. It’s worked so far.... Right?! I've got a lot of things I need to take care of so this challenge will also likely feature list after list of crap that I can check off as I move forward. HERE WE GO MY DUDES~ <3 [edit] OH THIS CHALLENGE WAS MY 10000 POST THIS IS A BLESSED AND SPECIAL THING !!!!!!!!!!!!! :DDDDDDDDD
  3. traaki

    traaki emerges from the ashes.

    Last month on the Traaki Files....I moved to a new state, quit my job, sprained my ankle and generally muddled through! Now I: * Live in a new house in a city I haven't lived in for almost 20 years * Have no job (yet) * Am ready to (gently, carefully) work out again Before all these big changes, my habits slipped. I was writing and sleeping a lot, but workouts stopped with the ankle injury. My diet changes fell away. I just needed to get through each day and I did that. Now is a time for resurrection! New habits! New relationships! It's time for a.....RESPAWN! It's been almost two years since I respawned last. I don't even remember how to do it. But big life changes are such a good time to make habit changes that I'm gonna seize the moment! Otherwise all this vim and vigor will get consumed in the morass of buying a car and organizing all my stuff and that, my friends, would be a huge waste. My zero week challenge goals are: 1) Finish the NF Academy Mindset section. 2) Take a few hours this week to plan out my new goals for the year. I have a lot of questions about how I'm going to spend my time and need a mid-year reset on that stuff anyway. 3) Work out twice. 4) Write every day.
  4. You know that feeling, you rediscover an old game and can't wait to be nostalgic and jump back in, and then the save file is corrupted? Welcome to my life. Okay, I'm being dramatic. It's been a long, long while since I've checked in, and a lot of things have happened, some good and some bad, but that's life. It left me at my lowest point a few weeks back, and now it's time to reboot and start a new file that will be even better than the old one. Because of this reboot/respawn, I'm going back to the level 1s. This challenge will serve to help me figure out where to set my priorities, so there won't be hours of exercise every day, but we'll get there. Main goal: Reboot. Figure out where I am in life, where I want to set my priorities in the long and short term, focusing on the short term since, as you'll find out, my life is in a bit of uncertain waters at the moment. Goal 1: Get the systems up and running. Literally run. However, to ease into it, I just want to run on the elliptical. We have it at home and nobody ever uses it, so I want to. I'm not going to set myself a goal like "an hour every day", but ideally I want to be on the elliptical every morning before work, so mon-fri. Let's call that my stretch goal. Goal 2: Twiddle with the settings. Track things. What things? ALL THE THINGS. I just bought new stationary and a new phone with all new apps (cause it's just so boring to not try new things when you get a new phone, right?) and there are SO. MANY. TRACKING TOOLS. Now, not everything's gonna work. While I would love to be that person who has everything planned out, that also goes against my nature a bit. So this is the time to try and see what works for me. I will make sure to share the apps and things I try, and how I like them - although please be aware that they will be very subjective reviews. Goal 3: Distract myself while I wait for things to load. Do projects at work. Projects currently on my list: New filing system. Work through the old to do list items. Create a wedding master list. Sort through ALL the old things. New mailbox. (I made a TL;DR since the below turned a bit long and off topic!) Workworkworkworkwork. I've just started a new job as a personal assistant and very probably will soon have an additional job as a CEO of a small company. Super exciting, right? My last job was extremely horrible. So horrible that I was on sick leave for two and a half months. However, it has also been the straw that broke the camel's back in a good way, as it left me with no option but to cry for help. I got that help. It's a process and I still battle with depression and anxiety, but it lead me to where I am now, which is an absolutely amazing company full of incredibly kind and funny nerds, and I know that my reaching out for help was part of the reason I was hired. I just read a book called "White Silence" by Jodi Taylor (who is an amazingly talented author and everyone should read the St. Mary's Chronicles, just saying!) and there was one quote that stuck with me. I believe I am one of those people. Whether that is the case because I am who I am, or whether I am who I am because things happen to me, I don't know. But while not all of those things are amazing, I love to live this way and am super grateful because it has lead me along a very eventful path. Aaaaanyway. Due to the nature of my work as a personal assistant, there are very busy times but also a lot of downtimes, especially since I'm still new. I want to use these down times by making projects that will make my boss' life - and thereby mine - easier. So here we go! I've had posts with more gifs but I'm gonna start this clean and post the trackers/things I want to track below. :)

    YariNaosu, One Day At A Time

    So I've been on hiatus for most of a year for a variety of reasons (good and bad). But it's time for a respawn, so I'm reaching out again to the support networks I have (the forums here, Connect on the WeightWatchers app, etc) to try and maintain accountability and get regular feedback on things. Yet to do: re-write my Life at Level 50 mission statement/goals (Work changed, and with it, the driving need to drown my frustrations in food and shopping). The previous battle log is here, if anyone wants to visit the unpleasant swamp of the past: Going forward: - If not a daily log, at least a weekly one - Revisit and refine my goals regularly (and set them up in smaller, manageable pieces) - Improve my productivity habits / reduce my procrastination habits -- this goes for both work and home. - Address, treat/mitigate my physical pains (through diet, exercise, etc). - Financial success (large savings account) and freedom (no more credit card debt/recurring balance carryovers) - I want to go to Japan and spend a lot of time on experiences and shopping for tea and kimono equipment that I can't get in the States. Need money to do that. :/
