Shello Gets Back to Life; Back to Reality


Shello

Recommended Posts

 

Life has settled into my new reality and I want to start making some headway on my goals.  So it's time to get back to life, get back to reality.

 

 

Life feels a lot like this video.  A lot has changed and I do have quite a bit of excitement about setting up my new life the way that I want.  Some of that excitement is tempered by the bits that are more complicated now and some sad bits.  To keep my focus on some of the exciting bits, I found a Spotify play list from Fresh Prince and I'll post a song of the day from the playlist

 

My Life - My Goals.  It's been really tough to focus on my fitnessy goals, and even some of my fun goals so far this year.  I'm not necessarily lamenting it as lost time but I'm ready to redirect my energies back to where I want.  But life is different now; my reality has changed.  My finances have changed; I no longer have access to fancy gym.  And local gym does not allow barbell DLs :o  My schedule is different; I only have my kids at my place every other week. :(   I'll not want to spend as much time away from the house to be at the gym during the weeks the kids are at my place so my fitness schedule may rotate as well.  So given all that has changed here is the new me:

 

Shello eats sensibly, not restrictively

I've really enjoyed not having to bother tracking food and someday I'd like to live here, but given the recent addictive behaviors, I think I need to get back on this train.  However, my goal will not be as restrictive as before.  I am simply aiming to have a deficit according to Fitbit.  I can still eat whatever I want but I just need to be more aware of how much.  

 

Shello is active, not lazy

I'm a little ambivalent on this goal.  I do want to be active again but I'm not sure how much, when, or what.  I don't really care either.  A lot of this will be handled by the previous goal.  The more active I am, the more calories I can have while maintaining a deficit.  But I still wanted to make it a separate goal.  I had planned to put more thought into this ahead of time but now I'll just figure it out as I go.  I've got a lot of tools and collected underpants to help me out,  not to mention I am virtually surrounded by other like minded individuals with their own underpants to share...I think this metaphor just took a turn I'm not so comfortable with... 

 

Shello puts herself first, then cares for others

So I've got a bit more free time to myself.  For this challenge, including week 0, the kids will be at LS's for 3 of the 5 weeks.  I want to use this time to focus on my hobbies and not waste my free time doing absolutely nothing... unless what I really want to do is absolutely nothing.  But I don't want to end up wallowing or escaping into empty hobbies.  I've got my Goodreads book challenge, some projects around the house, some languages to learn, guitar to practice, and not to mention bath time and tea time.  Taking care of myself will only make me better at taking care of others, and spending quality time with the kids when they are here. 

 

Shello is an introvert, not a recluse

And because I tend to isolate myself, and I have been noticing myself doing this more and more recently, I want to make a point to reach out to the people who are important to me.  This goes for my presence around the forums and irl too.  I've also had a lot on my own plate so I haven't been doing a great job of being there for others so I want to get back to making an effort.   

 

I intended for this challenge to start today but it will have to wait until I am done dying from the plague.

Week 0 Day 2

 

OK, I've definitely heard this song a million times but evidently I have never once actually listened to the lyrics.  I missed the intro when this played and I only started paying attention during the first verse and I thought it was a song I had never heard.  

 

I'm still struggling with the plague but I went back to work for the first time.  It was completely exhausting.  But it was a good day to start back since I had no obligations after work so I could relax and veg out as much as I wanted.  I do have someone coming over tonight to close on my mortgage refinance so I had to clean up the dining room a bit.  Things have gotten a little messy with me being sick but it didn't take much to make it look presentable.  

 

 

Shello eats sensibly, not restrictively

I managed a deficit of 196 calories so just barely and hardly any of it was sensible.  I skipped breakfast, which was a mistake that left me a bit shaky before lunch) but had a burger and curly fries from the cafeteria.  I did have a snack of some celery and peanut butter but was still hungry at the end of the work day.  I waited until I got home and snacked heavily on some chips and dip.  For dinner I had a box of spiral mac and cheese. :P 

 

Shello is active, not lazy

I'm still plaguing so getting through the day at work was as active as I could manage.  

 

Shello puts herself first, then cares for others

I picked up a new book from the library.  It's 700 pages.  I figured in order to finish the book by the end of the month I'd need to read 48 pages a day.  I'm already 76 pages behind.  I did mostly absolutely nothing but that's precisely what I wanted to do.  I have been binge watching season 3 of the The Great interior Design Challenge and I had the last episode to watch.  

 

Shello is an introvert, not a recluse

I'm still isolating a bit.  I did start following a few challenge threads.  I'd like to be more active on the forum and follow more people but I also don't want to start following more people than I can keep up with.  No irl interactions.  I did get to see Peach and Qbert briefly, which was nice.  I have a text from my college bestie with some dates she is free over the summer for a visit.  I haven't answered her yet.

I am here for this! Maybe if one of us can figure out a plan, the other one can follow suit. Also, every time your thread pops up for me, I hear that song in my head....

Yeah that can be a bit of a problem. It can be tough to keep up sometimes. My threads often get busy and out of control so I can at least assure you that if you fall behind I won't take it personally :) even if I'm always happy to see you turn up.

Between your thread and @Sylvaa's I've been considering things and all my friends I have currently I either met through Volunteering, Church, or NF. I don't know how to make friends either, I just happen to be in situations where friends kind of happen.

Week 0 Day 3

 

Such a guilty pleasure of mine.  

 

The plague has finally lifted but unfortunately just in time for shark week and a migraine.  I'm getting really tired of this.  I'm still quite tired from the plague too.  I think it will take a few more days to really get my energy back.  

Yesterday I closed on the refinance on my house.  I still share ownership with LS but now I have the benefit of being solely responsible for it financially.  Lucky me.   

 

Shello eats sensibly, not restrictively

I ate slightly more sensibly except when it came to the brownies I had made over the weekend.  Pop one in the microwave for 30sec, add some ice cream and chocolate syrup and you have a little bit of heaven in a dish.  All other food was sensible though.  I did not manage a deficit but went over by only 25 calories.  

 

Shello is active, not lazy

I did a quick yoga for migraines with Adrienne.  It wasn't strenuous by any means but it was mostly the mental task of doing something.  

 

Shello puts herself first, then cares for others

I watched Roseanne and spent the rest of the evening reading.  I figured I could catch up on some reading and get to bed early.  I did catch up but I read until 11:30 so getting to bed early didn't work out that well.    

 

Shello is an introvert, not a recluse

I didn't make much effort but I had class after work and then had a stranger come to my house for the official refinance paperwork.  LS had to stop by to sign some papers as well.  I got to sit with Qbert a bit after he got home from the bus.  I did text with my mom a bit but she reached out to me instead of the other way around.

Well at the moment, it's not.  This is temporary though.  The deal is to refinance and buy out his half of the equity.  Then I will be solely responsible financially but I will also be sole owner.  My credit was a bit too low to be able to refinance and cash out his equity so we have to wait a bit for that.  The current step was to ensure that I could at least qualify for the mortgage completely in my name to be able to stay in the house and to get his name off the mortgage so he could pursue other living arrangements.  Ultimately, it would have been best just to skip this step and wait until the next step but it is what it is.  The only real drawback are the extra fees with refinancing twice.

I don't know Kansas civil law, but in Texas once divorce papers are filed temporary orders are issued forbidding any changes to real estate status. This is to prevent one spouse from selling everything and spending all the money before assets can be split. I recommend doing this before any papers are filed if you want it out of the way before divorce proceedings begin.

I don't think we have that same process.  In Nebraska, whether I were to try to sell it on my own or not, it is considered marital property and is subject to equitable division, regardless of who actually has ownership.

Week 0 Day 4

 

Another day, another bit better after the plague.  I still had a migraine trying to take hold.  I spent most of the day at work in my office with my glasses on and the lights off.  By the end of the work day though it felt much better.  The sun was shining and I could be outside without freezing my tuckus.  I decided I could benefit from some fresh air so I decided on a walk in the evening. I was in no hurry and had no particular goal in mind.  I just meandered through the neighborhood.  It was glorious.  When I got home I realized I was just shy of a mile so I went back out around the corner and back to even it up. 

 

Shello eats sensibly, not restrictively

I managed a deficit again, 65 calories so just barely but I'll take it.  I logged my walk into my Fitbit and my yoga from the previous day.  It gave me more calories burned for the yoga than the walk.  It did put me in a deficit for yesterday but I'm not taking it since that yoga was the laziest of yogas ever.  I've finished off the last of the brownies save two that I am leaving for the kids.  That should definitely help with future deficits.  

 

Shello is active, not lazy

a slow 25 min mile around the neighborhood.  

 

Shello puts herself first, then cares for others

I had quite a few errands to run but then I made time for the walk, a couple of shows I wanted to watch - The Americans and Imposters and still had time to get my 50 pages of reading done.  

 

Shello is an introvert, not a recluse

I reached out and caught up with one of my favorite people.  I don't know why I tend to isolate myself when it's such a joy to chat with a friend.  I did also reply back to college bestie's text.  I  texted my sister a bit but she initiated the conversation.  She's a tough one to communicate with sometimes.  We have a big age difference and she sometimes thinks of me more of a mother figure.  Sometimes if I reach out to her she feels like I am 'checking up on her' in a judgmental motherly way instead of an inquiring sisterly way.  But if I don't reach out I think she feels left out.  Sometimes I get lazy and just wait for her to initiate but I that's one thing I'm trying to change.
