[Rebel Pilot Gar] Welcome to Ostagar


Rebel Pilot Gar

Recommended Posts

Happy New Year everyone! Hope everyone had a great holiday season. Mine was quite crazy with traveling to see extended family, on top of normal family. Good crazy, but still enough to make it tough to get back into my normal routine.... whatever normal is :P 

 

Trying something new this year... my idea is to have a few challenges with Dragon Age as the theme. We'll see how long that lasts with ranger-brain. This is inspired by the huge hype for DA4 teasers launching me into a replay of Dragon Age: Origins.

 

latest?cb=20090626183137

 

My goals for the challenge are still in progress but will involve:

 

1) Food Tracking & Meal Planning

Something involving more water and vegetables, less sweets and alcohol. Weekend prep work to guard against busy week laziness.

 

2) Weekly Workouts

At least 3 bodyweight workouts per week (NF Coaching). Bonuses - yoga and cardio, weekend family adventures (braving the winter weather)

 

3) Cleaning

Focus on the the kitchen cleanliness

 

Also tracking! Been losing steam on filling out my bullet journal. I made a spread for December... then completely ignored it. BUT my awesome BF got me a really kick ass habit building planner for Christmas. There is so much stuff in it, the planner is actually a bit intimidating. Seriously look at the pics, there's daily routine stuff, daily pages, weekly review pages, etc. (so much stuff)

 

https://www.amazon.com/Full-Focus-Planner-Michael-Hyatt-x/dp/B0797FKZ7M

 

Figure I'll give it a shot and see how it inspires my bullet journal.

 

Official Challenge Goals Update:

Darkspawn can be messy. And leaving them around risks tainting non-warden allies. Have to keep Ostagar clean while we continue to fight the good fight against the oncoming horde of darkspawn. (Clutching at straws a bit here with the theme.... :P

 

Objective: Get the kitchen clean enough that I'm not embarrassed to have guests over!

Omg, I did the same thing, lol.    I think what I need to do, is always pull it out of my backpack.  If it's open, I use it!  If it's hidden away, days go by....

You're making me vaguely wistful for Dragon Age. Looking forward to watching you crush this challenge, Thedas-style!!!

Only vaguely? Guess I will have to try harder to incorporate awesome geekiness and  Dragon Age nostalgia ;)

TGIF everyone. Bad news is - I have to work  part the weekend. Good(ish) news is - Just logging in remotely from home, so no commuting nonsense. 

 

It has been a tough week getting back into work after the being on holiday. Though I have set aside some time to finalize goals for next challenge. 

 

My dog is also telling me that it has been too long since we last had an adventure.

TGIW (it's the weekend, even if you have to conduct some remote work activities)!

 

Looking forward to seeing those goals when you get them hammered out, and I can see at least one Good Pupper is ready and rearing to kick this new challenge off!

I realized, while listening to some music the other day, that I never played the DLCS that came out for Inquisition.    I wonder if they can be played after completing the game?

Yay for weekend and sleeping late! No driving to adventure sites, but took the pup for an extra, 45 min walk today. There's a canal/small-park in walking distance form home that has geese and squirrels and fun smells. Not quite as good as hiking, but pupster was very happy and it was a nice break from staring at the work computer. ;)

I love the Inquisition soundtrack! Definitely a favorite for me to put on spotify while I'm at work trying to focus and do good things. 

 

I have only played the Trespasser DLC. That one is post-game end (and wraps up some of the loose ends, so definitely don't skip it!).

 

Have not played the others but there shouldn't be a problem playing them post-game given they were published quite a bit after game release...

 

Now I'm torn between exploring those and continuing my snarky city elf Origins run (trying to get all the opposite choices from my usual playthrough)

Oh yeah, I try to do this too, but the time investment, plus the fact that my original play throughs always have the most 'ME' choices, make it hard to spin from them.  LOL.

 

Good to know about the DLCS, I will get on them before the next release for sure.

It's such a time investment. Great game, but so much time to complete. I had the luxury of getting into the first two during college when I still had a very flexible schedule (and poor sleep schedule)

Lol yeah we'll see how long this playthrough lasts before i lose interest. Especially since all of the gifs I look at make me miss Inquisition

I agree on the dishes.   Yet, it's one of the few chores where you can get that very definitive feeling of 'look at the difference!'   And that feeling is pretty great!

You got this!

Dishes are the bane of my existence, there are very few cleaning chores I hate more.  You can do it!

I don’t hate it... there are definitely chores I struggle with more (laundry for one) but it’s one of those things that adds up quickly if I don’t keep on top of it!

 

Thanks for the encouragement!!

This is true. BF and I tag teamed it which helped a lot. I think making a permanent home in the cabinets for our new food storage set will help a lot. They are currently taking up what precious little counter and drying rack space we have.

 

Cleaning can be annoying but the peace of mind gained from having less mess / clutter is great. :)

Omg, me and bestie need to do this too!    We just got a bunch of those nice glass container with lid locks, but they are spread out all over.  LOLOLOL!

 

So true!! We have the running household joke that the food storage containers are taking over. Seriously every cabinet has a container or five. (Though take into account the miniscule kitchen with a grand total of five cabinets)

 

I really like the glass containers. Especially the oven safe ones (we haven't bought a microwave... old roommate took his with him -5 years ago - and never we never felt bothered enough to get a new one).

 

Not quite batch cooking, but trying a new recipe that looks interesting and super simple - https://iwashyoudry.com/ground-beef-stuffed-pepper-skillet/

What day is it? lol I've been pulling 12+ hour days this week. I have a temp who has been helping me get crazy work stuff under control - they hit 40 hours this morning DX

 

I did get a quick workout in the other morning - 15 mins on the exercise bike. Talking with my coach on what I can do to simplify workouts until work calms down a bit. 

 

The only day I got up on time was the workout day though. And cleaning isn't going quite so well. We're playing a game of kitchen sink jenga right now so that's on the list of things to tackle. 

 

Wakeup No Snooze: 1/4 days

Workout: 1/3 days 

Cleaning: Poor

Hey girl, don't beat yourself up over this.   You are pulling crazy work stuff, which means bandwidth for OTHER things just isn't there.    

 

Don't give in totally to the frak it badger, but if all you can do is tread water on goals until work chills out, that is TOTALLY OKAY! :)

Ugh work.

The good news is I had a nice relaxing weekend to recharge. We went on a family hike before the temperature dropped like crazy, I got ahead of food shopping, batch cooking, cleaning out the kitchen sink. 

 

Completely treading water for everything right now. At least my head is still somewhat above the surface :P 

 

Thank you for the encouragement, friend. Really appreciate the boost.

This week is going quite a bit better. Work is still a mess and I'm working crazy hours - but I decided that tonight is a no-work-allowed night (especially since I logged on in an attempt to get ahead on my day off Monday....). Luckily tomorrow is Friday (TGIF). 

 

Simplifying workouts has helped a lot. Maybe I won't see as much improvement with what I am doing, but it is managable and easily approachable. Got some yoga in on monday (Yoga with Adriene's Yoga for Relaxation) and de-compressed through 15 mins on my Podracer (aka stationary bike) today. 

 

The sink is also staying relatively under control after our weekend blitz to tackle the dirty dishes. (laundry on the other hand.... :P )
