Nerdfriends!! <3 <3 W E L C O M E!

 

Happy March! (Wow it's March already huh??) Last challenge seemed to kinda be a.... doozy, for a lot of people, self included.  I've finally acknowledged that I've really been struggling over the past couple of months!  So I've made this extremely basic but very important challenge to reflect that.

 

giphy.gif

 


Gonna jump right into this one because there's really not much to lay out - my only true goal this challenge cycle is to keep moving forward and updating regularly here.  March is traditionally a really low month for me at any rate, but many points in my life are Gentle Chaos right now, including but not limited to:

 

 

 

- Selling a house!, and going through said house and decluttering, moving things to storage, deciding what to keep and what not, cleaning the living shit out of it, listing it, powerwashing?? the outside?? is this really a thing to wash the brick exterior of your house???, and oh yeah hey where are we gonna go once it's sold??, etc!


- Staying financially stable through all of the above! (Also; mentally stable, phew!)


- Dealing with some massive work changes I'm not super psyched about but have no control over! (Something something cog in the machine~)


- And segueing from that - figuring out if I want to study for and take the CPC!  I think it's the next best step right now to furthering my current career and it's material I'm really interested in and also something I could see myself enjoying work-wise, but I'm really still in a massive research stage right now trying to figure out if it would be right for me, and what I'd need to do?  Also can I shoulder this massive commitment right now??  Probably not??? (*quiet screech*)


- Managing my emotions lately, which can range anywhere from hey I'm feeling super lonely, to hey wow I'm REALLY anxious for no reason, to oh suddenly I'm feeling like all the light has gone out of the world; sometimes all in the course of one day!  H o o b o y!


- Doing my best to support a very emotional partner who is dealing with a lot of the same things I am!


- Plus much much more!  Who KNOWS what fun and exciting things may blow my way?!

 

 

 

Phew.

 

I've found that making concrete challenge goals right now is just setting myself up to fail, because there is so much going on and it's all so variable that even a weekly checklist can go off the rails real quick at any given moment.

 

SO.

 

Stay stable.  Take care of issues that arise.  Do the thing.  Be present. Keep lifting. Take care of yourself.

 

You keep what you kill.

I'm a huge HUGE fan of the Riddick films (yeah even the last one, well, parts of it maybe ugh); Richard B. Riddick is my personal idol and serious badass.  In Chronicles, the Necromongers follow the doctrine of 'you keep what you kill', basically meaning whatever you defeat is yours to own and control.  I'm looking to work through a lot of personal roadblocks and stressors over the next month, so I need to kill them and own them before they own me.

 

These 4 weeks will be a stream of consciousness sort of deal; I guess more of a running journal than anything.  I'm generally a highly optimistic and positive person, but I've had a lot on my plate lately and it's time to scale it back so I can continue to stay that way and not flame out like a dying star.  My smaller goals will be variable and I'll post them as they come, and I'm gonna do my best to take 'em out and stay present.  Easy?  Totally.

 

Kill it; keep it.  I got this.

Yes, but only if it needs it.  Go look at the shady side of the house and see if you can find any mossy spots.  If you have flowerbeds, rain can sometimes kick up the dirt onto the lower foot or two of the house.  If neither of those, you probably don't need to wash your bricks.

 

Sounds like a really good challenge.  I'll be hanging out to see that you keep checking in.

He was going to point out that it's not a crocodile in the gif.  It's an alligator.  Crocs have a pointy nose.

Hell yeah!  There's something about just going with the flow... as long as the flow doesn't turn into a ripcurrent that sweeps your legs out from under you and drags you kicking and screaming into the unfeeling underworld of the creeping horror of the deep dark sea

 

I mean

 

Uh...

 

YEAH GO WITH THE FLOW! :DDDDD

But WHAT if they come BACK like that terrifying movie Pet Sematery that had me convinced I lived on an old Indian burial ground for YEARS as a child in the remote forests of New England........

 

Nah you totally have a point.  Murder most foul, NO MERCYYYYYY.

Zero Week Updates

 

Y'all know how I feel about this time change?!!?!

 

giphy.gif

 

Honestly.  I had just gotten used to waking up when it was a little bit light out and suddenly when I get up it's DARK AS SIN all over again and.  And.  ......... UGGHHH.  I mean sure, I can drive home from work without having to turn my headlights on, but at what cost??

 

Yesterday was leg day (hoo boy Monday) so today is rest day... I think my glutes and hamstrings have finally gotten used to the fact that yes, we are doing weighted step-ups every week now, stop whining ok?  Minimal DOMS is nice.  My workout schedule is kind of unstable (kind of like the rest of my life ha ha??) because there are a lot of people at my gym lately - our gym chain bought out another gym chain here in town so now there are More People - so I pretty much am forced to make a snap judgement every time I go in and snag whatever racks/benches/etc. are available while I'm there.  At least legs usually sticks to Monday, but it's a right PITA.

 

So far this week has been... pretty good?? *looks for other shoe to drop*  Work is manageable and we're moving forward slowly with the house which is a big load off our shoulders.  I have FOUR BAGS of clothing to donate and I need to load up my car Friday with all that stuff.  I've already thrown away a huge trash bag full of stuff and am halfway through filling up a second.  Our storage facility is secured and we're gonna bring some boxes up there this weekend.  GO TEAM!

One of the "cleaning" things that slowed me down the most this weekend was going through..... lots of old documents.  Who keeps old auto insurance policies from 2012?!!?!! *sheepishly raises hand* ^______^;;;;  Ehehe.....  y e a h.  I brought a big pile of junk to work to shred.

 

ANYWAYS.  I'm enjoying a cup of lemongrass tea 'cause it's BUTTS COLD outside and I'm gonna go check in on everyone before I start to... work.... at work.... you know, the thing you do 8 hours a day...... HAPPY TUESDAY NERDS :DDDD

Usually DST completely messes me up, but I was so tired this year that I started falling asleep an hour early without any issues… adjusted completely to the new timeframe with the assistance of a full 8 hours of sleep. :o
