I've been racking my brain for a challenge theme but I've got nothin' except LIZARDS.  Specifically mine.

 

I mean, all lizards are cool tho'.

They are v. happy and bring a heckin' JOY to the world!!!!!!

I also play a big ol' lizard in FFXIV - YOU KNOW, THAT GAME I OFTEN HONK ABOUT - here is his current look of rocking a springtime festival skirt and WIELDING AN ENORMOUS AXE 'cause he's quite fabulous and that's how we do.

Full of MAJESTY I TELL YA'~

 

A - ny - way.  Oh yeah.  My challenge.

 

My last challenge was all about staying afloat, and I'm really proud of myself 'cause I nailed it.  I'm managing my stress and my emotions better, and because of that I've been able to slowly get back into a workout routine without burning myself out, which in turn helps me manage my stress and emotions better, etc.!  (A good cycle~)  Work is still a big question mark right now; I've quietly put that on the backburner for now as not to overload myself and send myself spiraling back to square one - one thing at a time.  We've still got a fair bit going on with putting the house on the market next month, but I've powered through a lot and things seem to be much more manageable than they were.

 

This challenge I actually have some ACTUAL TRACKABLE GOALS instead of me just babbling about Twitch streaming and dragging myself out of bed in the morning WHOA WAIT SHUT THE FRONT DOOR I know, right?

 

Look out, here they are:


1. Gym.  GO.
At least twice a week.  Possibly more depending on day-to-day fatigue and soreness levels.  DON'T PUSH YOURSELF.  But don't die either, v. important.  Getting back into a routine slowly but surely first is crucial.

 

2. Log What You Lift
I haven't been doing this for... uh, quite some time, and I think it's about time I slowly start re-tracking my gains.  In a way I feel like I've circled back around to the start of my lifting days which is kinda cool because I've got my enthusiasm back, but kinda also like HEY I'VE BEEN HERE.  At least I know what I'm doing now, yeah?  Right now while I'm eyeing two workout days I'll split them into legs & general upper body/shoulders/arms, and if I hit three I'll toss a bench/back/row day in there.

 

3. Talk About Food
Well, I guess, if I HAVE to.  (That's sarcasm.)  I'm not at a point where daily MFP tracking would be viable (to be fair I much prefer eating intuitively right now), but I HAVE found out over the past couple of weeks that posting my meals/snacks in my thread at the start of the week has really kept me on track with eating well and sustaining myself.  So I'm gonna keep doing that!  Somehow seeing it on the screen solidifies all my good choices in my brain. 

 

 

 

I'm startin' in zero week, y'all.  LET'S GOOOOO~~

This week's food and snacks!

 

Lunch is ground beef with taco mix, kidney beans, brown rice, guac and pico.  Snacks are a fun mix of: More TJ's chicken with swiss cheese!  Pretzel sticks with almond nut butter!  Those amazing refrigerated protein bars that taste like cookie dough! Quinoa I forgot at home whoops!

 

I never really post a lot about breakfast or dinner 'cause it's always the same things.  Breakfast is a slice of Dave's Killer Bread with nut butter.  Dinner is always either one of the following - chicken sausage, grilled pork chops, steak, or Morningstar chicken nuggets.  We go out ~2 nights a week, usually for salads or maybe a Publix sub or something.  Dinner's usually pretty solid and not very variable, so it helps.  Lunch and snacks are where the most thought - for me - needs to go.

 

Ok that's all for now friends I'm off to do some actual work at work (what is this madness) and will keep an eye out for what new stuff y'all got up your LIZARD SLEEVES NEXT!  <333

!!!! That's what I'm eating right now! (Sorta) The store didn't have the sliced bread so I got the everything bagel. It makes a really yummy lunch with the Morningstar buffalo chicken patty, a slice of cheddar cheese, a bit of spicy cheese on the bagel, and some Awesomesauce. ^_^

Oh man, our grocery just started carrying it!  We used to eat Udi's but their new recipe is terrible and I hate it so much, so we gave Dave's a try and I'm never going back. *_____*  I like the Power Seed the best, but Cinnamon Raisin is good with butter too.  They have BAGELS?!!?!  That bagel sandwich sounds perfect.......

I posted the image previously, yes. I can also post a Google Drive-ish link to the actual book or a site where you can purchase it. Better still, you can pick your crew and actually form an adventuring party and CONFRONT THIS LIZARD. @Starpuck made it happen with @Oramac, @Jarric, @Tanktimus the Encourager and yours truly, so why not?

Zero Week

 

Oh boy I am achy today.  (Good DOMS versus uh-oh sickness inc. tho'...)  Also it is POLLEN SEASON kinda sorta even though it's only 50 degrees and ugh my head hurts and my eyes are gross.  HOORAY SORT-OF SPRING.  (Still kind of waiting for REAL spring to stay around for more than a few days.... I'm wearing long sleeves today.)

 

gilamonster

 

Breakfast today was a double protein shake and it was PERFECT.  On mornings I don't go to the gym I'll have this - one scoop of vanilla protein powder, one scoop of chocolate protein powder, a tablespoon of PB, a smidge of cinnamon, and a splash of vanilla extract.  It's amazing and delicious and nets me a good 45-50g-ish of protein in the morning which I DESPERATELY NEED.  It's also not super cost effective so I'm only doing the double scoop now while I have a reserve of protein powder.

 

I'm kinda in a weird brain place today - sort of ennui, but also sort of restless and irritable? - so I'm gonna turn on some good working music here shortly to pump myself up and get the morning going.  I've been listening to a lot of deadmau5 lately for a pick me up - what do you guys like???

Oh yeah gotta make some COFFEE TOO ALL HAIL THE HOT BEAN JUICE \o/
