still here, still kicking. and tomorrow is 2019!

i like deadlifting and practicing body neutrality in regards to its shape. habits and routine got a bit derailed last month when my father suffered a bad fall and is currently re-learning how to move his arms and legs. he hasn't been moved to a rehab facility yet so we're trying to visit him everyday as hospitals can become depressing. given this new agenda, I've scaled back my goals.

 

n65kzqE.gif?noredirect

 

Challenge goals:

2 shortened weights workouts: one day will be squats and cable pulldowns; second day will be neutral grip OHP and deadlifts)

20 mins of running per week: planning this to be broken down into two 10-min sessions

TV off by 8pm 5 nights/week

finish thank you cards (0/4)

 

Rolling goals:

track restaurant food – try for less than 3x per week. plan out weekend food and grocery list before Friday night.

track yoga – try for 20mins/week; hopefully fit in modified hip bridges and clamshells; mindfully choose to do yoga instead of playing phone games

 

sleep and staying sane will be important.

the plan.

1/3 – 1/10: honeymoon

1/11: friends (A & B) meetup

1/12: friends (C, D, E & F) meetup

1/13: clean out closet

1/16: fasted medical eval for work

1/19: friends (G) meetup

1/26: friends (H & I) meetup

2/2: friends (C & J) meetup

I just lettered my friends to show that I’m not hanging out with the same people each time. meetups are dependent on what my dad needs from me.

 

I'll be missing out on week 1 while I'm away on my honeymoon but hoping to be back in semi-action for week 2. there's no theme (yet) so gimme all your gifs that don't fit!

Yay for honeymoon, and for a sensible and realistic plan during your dad's recovery! Playing panda gif for you ...

Is body neutrality like a tavern at the halfway point for adventurers making the pilgrimage from body hate to body love? 

Shortened workouts sound like a perfect doable compromise. Also, I like your melty, smoky colour blocks. I don't know what they are, but I like them.

i know confidence and love are a way off for me. i fake it as much as i can as a means to get there though! i think of it as: I don't have to be in love with my body to be a worthy human or do the things i love doing. when i'm having a bad day i try to remember that my appearance doesn't and shouldn't have to please everyone to garner respect. even from myself!

I did get to the gym on Monday! 10 min jog on the treadmill (0.81 miles) and then

Tuesday was a lot of visiting dad, shopping for a couple new pieces that actually fit (new fake leather jacket for honeymoon trip!), and hanging out with a couple friends in the evening. i did get up and do a quick forward fold and full body stretch at my friends house but that's it.

 

this morning i went to the hospital again and then came straight to work to wrap up things before my trip!

Maybe we can get there together. I'm currently trying to replace unhelpful role models (fitness models, fashion models, elegant movie stars in cool adventure action movies) with slightly more diverse inspiration: powerlifting women, dwarven warriors, legendary creatures, cats who don't give a f***, deathclaws. 

"Harriet," you say, "Deathclaws aren't role models." But what if they are? What if my goal is to stalk the barren wastelands, killing and eating things like a post-apocalyptic t-rex?

haha! you should fill your social media up with things that bring you joy! even if that means deathclaws. and not things that make you feel "less than." that was a huge step for me to clean out my instagram of people i followed that just ended up making me feel bad about myself. no more!

And seconding this! Yes, fill up your social media outlets with things feed and inspire you, not things that bring you down! That might mean just unfollowing when you can't stop comparing yourself and finding yourself coming up short or failing to avoid the grass-is-greener traps. It doesn't need to be a moral struggle every time you open an app. <3

However, I agree. Deathclaws are excellent role models. Who better to to teach death and dismemberment of wasteland ghouls?

I didn't even think about things to do. If you drink beer, I highly recommend checking out Stone Brewing, they've got a great tasting room in Old Town San Diego. Other recommendations are Alesmith and Belching Beaver.

Also, there's a cove that you can go see hundred of sea lions. It's pretty cool.

And.. Ok, I'll stop. I love SD and would live there if the right opportunity presented itself.

well well well. if it isn't my fellow nerds!

 

i've been back from san diego for almost a week and just catching up with life. it was a great trip full of sun, long walks, delicious food and drink, and great music! i did come back with some pain in my upper back (maybe even shoulder muscles?) that connect to my neck. i thought it was the hotel bed and pillow but it hasn't gone away yet... 

 

as far as wellness stuff, i've been successfully catching up on sleep! back up to ~7.5hr average this week. I did 12 mins of yoga yesterday and a quick 5 min plank/superman interval series today. have not made it back to the gym mostly due to sleep deficit and the muscle pain is worse when i wake up. i'm hoping to get there tomorrow morning and start sleeping with a pillow between my knees (i'm a side sleeper).
