Evicious: The Unburdening II + Blitz Week!


Evicious

Recommended Posts

Last Challenge was a whirlwind, and I definitely struggled to keep up on my NF 4WC postings. Now that I'm officially graduated and a member of B Troop, I will [theoretically] have a more open schedule, and therefore more time to devote to working out (and posting on NF).

 

My home computer crapped out completely yesterday, so my online presence will be limited until I get that fixed... no ETA ATT. :(

 

Goal: Continue to unburden myself [and my horse!] of my extra weight

Plan:

  • Dominate Blitz Week (0) - Eat healthy 100% Mon-Fri; participate in some form of exercise for <30 min daily Mon-Fri
  • Strive for total compliance Weeks 1-4 - Continue Blitz Week (0) goals; employ the "Never go 2 days in a row without exercising" rule

 

Starting Weight:

  • 172 Lbs

End Weight:

  • ??? Lbs

How's you're blitz week going?

 

I almost made it all week! I caved on Friday and went to the local Oktoberfest, instead of going to the gym. It didn't help that I literally didn't have anything to eat all day, either, so I completely pigged out on beer and pretzels when we got there. I'm pretty sure someone fed me a bratwurst, at some point, too (I don't remember much after the first couple of hours - that's what not eating all day and then partying it up with a bunch of ex-military gets you). I was hung over AF Saturday, and felt ill all Sunday and Monday. It was so bad, I didn't even go to work - felt like someone had a knife in my intestines.

 

I also managed to misplace my Fitbit on [Blitz Week] Tuesday, and only just found it this morning (under my dresser). The wristband looks like maybe my cat got a hold of it and had some fun, but otherwise it's still functional. :P I left it to charge while I'm at work, and will grab it over lunch when I run some errands.

Oktoberfest sounds fun! 

 

However, the after effects sound not so fun... I hope you're feeling better now... *hugs*

What I remember from the festival was fun! Lots of traditional German music, people doing the chicken dance in lederhosen, yummy pretzels with mustard and dark beer...

Next time, I will be prepared to prolong the enjoyment instead of bolt it down like an over-excited puppy with food.

 

I felt much better yesterday (and today). I'm back to eating healthy and getting in my exercise. I rode with B Troop last night. They're prepping for the National Cavalry Competition next week, so last night was the Pistol course practice. I didn't shoot - I'm still nervous handling a loaded gun on horseback, even though we use blanks. Instead, I rode a horse who was equally nervous at the sight and sound of gunshots. My job was to simply keep his feet moving, and give him something to focus on while the others went through the course. He started off pretty jumpy, but by the end of the night he only tensed a little when shots were fired and relaxed again immediately after.

 

Spoiler

There was one near-incident I had to intervene in. One of the riders temporarily lost control of his horse as they went around the course, and they ended up charging INTO the line of horses tied at the edge of the arena (only one mounted pair go through the course at a time, so we let the horses that aren't currently going rest). And of course, the horse he charged into was my Charlie-boy. Who is blind on the side he was charged into. Poor Charlie had no idea what was happening, and pulled back so hard he almost took the fence with him! Luckily, I was really close when it happened, and was able to get him calmed down and off the line before anyone got hurt. So that was fun.

 

I'll be going to the gym after work today. I don't know what my focus will be when I get there - maybe running, maybe upper body strength. I ride again tomorrow, so I don't want to kill my legs. For an activity where you sit the entire time, you use your legs an awful lot. :P

Glad you're doing better after all the shenanigans! Way to get back on that horse! (see what I did there? lolz...)

Saturday I went on a 3hr trail ride with B Troop. Absolutely beautiful trail: it winds around the hills and then follows the canyon, which is all shady and breezy... Just an overall pleasant place to ride (or walk, or bike, as we saw many others doing).

Sunday we accepted an invitation from friends to go to a local, unofficial range. I got to shoot my first pistol! While I took several videos of my husband practicing, no one got any of me. :( But we're invited to go again next Sunday, so I'll get a few pics to post then. I also got to witness several people hitting a target a MILE AWAY. That was pretty cool: after the gunshot, there's a pause, and then you hear "ping!" when the bullet hits the target. After witnessing those performances, I'm pretty sure I know who not to piss off any time soon. :P 

 

We went to our one-and-only local tap house afterwards, and enjoyed too many beers afterwards. ^_^ Overall, it was a really fun weekend!

 

Now to get back to being healthy for the next 5 days...

LOL Ok, so last week was a fail in everything! I did NOT exercise; I ate like crap; and I'm pretty sure I had beer every day of the week. :P Then the weekend we went to a friend's BBQ, and then went winery/brewery hopping with a bar tender friend!

Aside from the memories of this gorgeous we vista, we also got to keep the glasses :P 

 

And that all sounds like I should feel terrible, but... I actually worked my ass off at the stables all week. Since all the other horses were at the NCC (Nat'l Cavalry Competition), the few that were left behind got to enjoy an extended weekend turnout... which means a LOT of extra work for the B Trooper assigned to look after them. I hauled hay; mucked multiple pens; and spent hours on the weekly (weekend-ly?) barn cleaning. Oh, and as it turns out, a leaf blower is NOT the most effective tool for removing old hay from a gravel aisle... but it is perfect if you'd like to surround yourself in cloud of hay-particle dust for 3 hours. It was exhausting - but it also made me realize how much I enjoy that kind of "physical labor for a purpose".

 

That's how I know I'm a hopeless horsey person. ;) 

 

Which brings me to my biggest update....

Spoiler

I'M BUYING A HORSE!!!!!

 

Specifically, this horse:

949829109_WhatAPatriot_1.thumb.jpg.2120fb3a817f6a06fdf269f30fce331f.jpg

 

She's an Off the Track Thoroughbred (OTTB). She's just a baby at only 3 years old, but already quite tall (16.1hh!). She's currently in Iowa, so I've been scrambling to make arrangements to get her shipped to AZ. Everything has finally fallen into place, though, and assuming nothing catastrophic occurs to prevent it, she should be here by the 15th of October!

 

I'm probably going to change her name from what her current trainer has been calling her, so if you have any suggestions, feel free to let me know!
