Starpuck Achieves Soul Resonance

Soooo, someone might have just finished watching Soul Eater...      The thing is?  For being as quirky as it was (it was also very, very good) it touched on a lot of topics that I seem to be struggling with lately (always);   like fears and bravery, facing what scares you, learning to be less than perfect and finding your path.     I decided it would be a good theme to help me finish off the final challenge of the year.

 

STUDY LIKE MAKA

[] Track calories daily, aiming for clean foods, and a calorie goal of 1800. 

[] Art stuff 4x/week and one must be some kind of tutorial.   

 

It's time to stop coasting on both of these goals.   I can't discern if the formula is working, if I fudge the numbers every weekend.

TRAIN LIKE BLACKSTAR

[] 2-3 Strength / Week

[] Walk on off days.

[] Mobility daily, using Adamas mobility flow (10 minutes)

 

There will be weeks I can do 3 strengths, and weeks where only 2 make sense.   I joined my local Strong First gym's Healthy Through the Holidays challenge, and there is a mobility flow in there that can be done daily, in about 10 minutes.   Since my knee is feeling better, I am not going to push back into running just yet.  I want to determine if it's my weight lifting or running that caused that, so this challenge, no runs.

BE CALM LIKE KID

[] Daily prayer/quiet time 5m.  

[] Seek balance.

 

First one pretty self explanatory, I need to learn to slow my roll.  It can be a 5 minute focused breathing drill or quiet talking with God.    The second one is about balance my schedule.  Kid loves symmetry, so I need to be more balanced with my days out vs in, and big planned times vs relax me times.

DEAL WITH IT LIKE CRONA

[] Identify and face fears, and share them in here when they come up.

 

This one will be less 'active' a goal, and more of an, 'as it comes up'.   Hard to track numerically, but easy to share.

I also made a pretty fun challenge tracker in my BuJo for this one!  (This is because I had hours to do it while on vacation.)

ALRIGHT, LET'S DO THIS!!

Week 1, Day 1

 

MAKA

Calories 1765 (1/7)

Inked new character, angsty cleric. (1/4)

 

BLACKSTAR

35 minute walk

Mobility  (1/7)

 

KID

Prayer/Quiet 5m  (1/7)

 

CRONA

I went to the dentist today to get my first ever cavity filled.  I was kind of nervous.  I paused, reminded myself that I super trust this dentist, and that really, my choices were to deal with it now, or ignore it and face worse solutions to a bigger problem later.   It helped to sort it out like that.

 

And?   I didn't even need a Novocaine shot, she thought it was small enough to just get it done- and she was right!  25 minutes from the first opening of my mouth to finished, and it didn't hurt at all.    It's hard to believe that I even had something done today, because everything feels just like it did yesterday.

(I know, I know... not from Soul Eater.  But from another anime I like!)

 

Feels good to 100% the first day of the challenge!   Always perks me up!  Which is good because tomorrow is my first day back to work in 12 days!  Yikes!

WAAAAIT THIS IS YOUR FIRST CAVITY AND YOU DID IT WITH NO NOVOCAINE?! I'm so proud of you! I hate novocaine and honestly I think many dentists are a little more rough with your face when you are numbed up.... but most of them HATE doing fillings without it! so it's SUPER cool that your dentist lead you in this direction. I'm glad you have such a good one!

Yeah she said it was a small one, and we caught it early.   Said she didn't think I'd need one, but if it proved bigger/deeper we could always pause and numb up.  She did end up saying it was bigger than she thought it was, but really, at worst, there were maybe a few moments of sensitivity but nothing painful.  Her assistant came in half way through and said, "no shot?" and she answered, "nah, she plays hockey, nothing hurts her".  Hehehe.       It was such a non-big deal this time around.  I hope I am always this lucky.    We switch providers for insurance at work a lot (small company woes) and I pay for her even when she is out of network.   I trust her so much.

Week 1, Day 2

 

MAKA

Calories 1793 (2/7)

Sketched, crying version of wood elf (2/4)

 

BLACKSTAR

Strength Session StrongLifts A (10% deloaded)

Mobility  (2/7)

 

KID

Prayer/Quiet 5m  (2/7)

 

First workout and it was tough.   I am glad I did it, but now, 8 hours later my damn freaking knee is all cranky again.  So it IS apparently the squatting.   Grr.   I took a solid 12 days off, doing nothing but walking and yoga... no issues during that time.   I might have to go see Moe and have her check things out.   After I get rid of all this chigger bites.  (I think they are chiggers or sand flea bites from Florida, which are STILL itching and flaring up.)

Week 1, Day 3

 

MAKA

Calories 1805 (3/7)

Inked scowly wood elf (3/4)

 

BLACKSTAR

Walk 30m

Mobility  (3/7)

 

KID

Prayer/Quiet 5m  (3/7)

 

 

Soo today started oddly.   I left my backpack at home when I went to work and it has my whole non-work life in it!   I had planned on working on my D&D game during down time, but all the stuff was in the bag, so I couldn't.   As it turned out, I wouldn't have had much time to do it anyway but that means tomorrow it's critical I get some prep work in.

 

In big big news...  It was my birthday today and a coworker offered to treat me to food delivered in.  We opted for Chinese.    I did a quick google search for healthiest options and ordered Chicken with broccoli, light sauce, steamed rice.    It came in a container that had to be 8 pounds lol.     Here's where it gets crazy.   I have measuring cups at work.  I dished out 1 cup of the chicken and broc, with 1/2 cup of the rice, and ... I cut the egg roll in half.   I ate JUST that.   I felt so damn empowered guys.  And I didn't get a belly ache, or feel food guilt, or feel bad about saying no to the kind offer!   So awesome.   I then took my 30m walk afterward in the bright, but brisk 40 degree sunny day.

 

Dinner at home was my requested maple glazed salmon with wild rice and veggies.    My bro-in-law bought cupcakes, so I split a red velvet with my sister, and then had one of the teeny "two bite" yellow ones.    All calories in an accounted for, and I landed at 1805!!   HECK YEAH.

 

After dinner, I got in the groove to finish up the one pic, so added all the colors and shading and what not.   Since I've changed my mind on the personality, I knew I had to get Scowly Elf done fast before she ended up lost in the half finished pile for all eternity.

"Nevermind my holy symbol.   It's not like I had a choice in the matter..."

"Oh, you're not fond of Talos?!    Funny that.  Neither am I."

"Don't like the way I go about things?  Then you can line up by Mister Soft Hands over there."

 

All in all, a very lovely day!   Now for some Witcher, and early to bed.

Hahahhaah yesssss!  Excaaalllibeeeer!  Excalllibeeeeer!

 

Thanks all for the birthday wishes!    I am so shocked at how well I am maintaining control and moderation!  Today, friends asked where for dinner - and suggested German buffet and then asked what kind of cake I wanted.   I said, whoa whoa whoa!  Haha.   I am being mindful with the food so let's not go crazy!     I said I'd pick a place that would work for food and that just having time out was enough and didn't need a cake.   Oi!    So hard to say these things without feeling a bit like a jerk for not letting them do usual birthday things.

 

It'll be okay though!  Tomorrow, chili at the house before D&D, and Saturday is a busy day of cleaning and hockey.
