Love how the pictures seem to suggest you completed the entire race easy while wearing those "cool gal" shades¬†ūüėéūüėéūüėé

prescription glasses, not that 'cool" LOL I'm blind without them, and they did stay on the whole race (fortunately the headband was tight enough to keep them secure)

I'm alive, though yesterday that would have been questionable :lol: 

 

 

The Plan....

Food: Make 24 hour plan, eat on plan when hungry, stop when full. 7/7

Exercise: Continue Bodyweight365, do intervals on Sunday and 'stretching' days (Tuesday and Thursday currently) 4/7, bodyweight was not done this week, though I think yesterday might have made up for it!

extra: This may be more detailed as time goes on but for now it will be accomplishing anything I didn't have planned (aka not sitting on the couch from the time I get home till bedtime scrolling social media) Went to the women dining out group on Wed. Friday D actually took me out for Poke Bowls (no other poking was involved though dammit! :lol: :( ) 

Down Time: Three times a week (at least) take time for me, this can be journaling, crocheting, or time to read. This also includes excursions with friends since I tend to be a hermit at times. Going to add getting at least 7 hours of sleep every night to this as well. 6/7 missed 7 hours one night due to a exhibition game at work that I had to be there at 7am for...so of course the struggle was real getting to sleep!

 

I did a mud run!!! 20 obstacles, 3 miles...and I Rangered the fuck out of it!! :D 

vObNlVK.jpg

I'm the one in the middle, the other two are my friends Vic and Lisa...this was after obstacle 16.

GRQ8ABv.jpg

Our little group...minus a couple (one had to go to the ER, her hip dislocated at the beginning) 

 

MrolbL2.jpg

Think I'm going to nickname this one shell shocked for obvious reasons :lol:

 

More on Instagram and Facebook if you're bored...apparently plans are being made to do it again next year, I, for one, hope it's warmer...doing this in mid 40 degree temps, not as much fun as it sounds! 

Other than that not a whole lot going on in my 3D world...though I don't remember looking forward to a challenge quite this much in a long time, I'm certain it has to do with the return of old friends :D

Yep, I've been back 4 years this July...should have never left...looks like I'm about 2 hours north of you ;) 

and I'm not short (5'7") but the three of us in the top picture stuck together and helped each other through the obstacles. The first one would get boosted up, second would get a hand and a boost, the last one got two hands and had to power up with her legs (that was me LOL)

Woot!

yay

 

you did It!  Congrats!

it looks like you rangered the heck out of it  and ESPACIALLY because it was cold.

 

curious

 

was it harder than you thought it would be?

 

High that day got to 60 degrees, long after we finished! Oddly enough it wasn't harder than I thought (about as hard as I thought it would be, mostly because it's a women only mud run), but I did surprise the hell out of myself with a lot of it, my upper body strength has improved a lot more than I give myself credit for!

 

The really good news is yesterday I was able to run errands without a lot of DOMS issues, and today I did my entire bodyweight routine. I was worried I would be too sore to move for days :o

Do you know what it feels like when someone walks into your life and starts doing everything your soul has been craving for someone (aka your partner) to do for years? Oddly enough coming at a time when things aren't 'bad' at home, they just are...nothing...no affection, no 'work' being put in that they said they wanted...and you feel so torn and conflicted about what to do...yeah, I know, someday I'll quit whining about this, but it is not this day! :lol: 

 

The Plan....

Food: Make 24 hour plan, eat on plan when hungry, stop when full. 7/7 back on track!

Exercise: Continue Bodyweight365, do intervals on Sunday and 'stretching' days (Tuesday and Thursday currently) 6/7, all workouts done this week with the exception of Sunday which I spent recovering...thought about not counting that one against me, but the workout wasn't done so I don't get a 'pass' on it

extra: This may be more detailed as time goes on but for now it will be accomplishing anything I didn't have planned (aka not sitting on the couch from the time I get home till bedtime scrolling social media) Job fair on Wednesday that I helped out with so no couch sitting that day...can't say as I did a lot of extra stuff this week

Down Time: Three times a week (at least) take time for me, this can be journaling, crocheting, or time to read. This also includes excursions with friends since I tend to be a hermit at times. Going to add getting at least 7 hours of sleep every night to this as well. 6/7 missed sleep 2 nights this week, for whatever reason my internal clock has been going off at 4:30am, regardless of what time I go to bed...wrote in my journal and working on reading the handbook for my motorcycle license.

 

Not much going on this week outside of the usual. The weather has been crap and  pain levels are high so not much likely to happen. I did get my boots, gloves, and rain gear that I needed for the MC class, so all set for that :D

Memo to me, avoiding posting here is not going to change the factor that I did not hit all of my goals this week :rolleyes:

 

The Plan....

Food: Make 24 hour plan, eat on plan when hungry, stop when full. 7/7 

Exercise: Continue Bodyweight365, do intervals on Sunday and 'stretching' days (Tuesday and Thursday currently) 5/7, intentionally skipped Friday and Saturday due to generally not feeling well Friday, and intense emotional conversations Saturday, more below.

extra: This may be more detailed as time goes on but for now it will be accomplishing anything I didn't have planned (aka not sitting on the couch from the time I get home till bedtime scrolling social media) BFF's birthday this week, low country boil and crab legs were consumed

Down Time: Three times a week (at least) take time for me, this can be journaling, crocheting, or time to read. This also includes excursions with friends since I tend to be a hermit at times. Going to add getting at least 7 hours of sleep every night to this as well 4/3 on me time, 5/7 on sleep 

 

So yesterday was an emotionally exhausting morning, D and I had a long needed talk and cleared the air and received clarification on a lot of things. She said a couple things that were very hard to hear but we were both so emotionally spent we had to delay any further talking or decisions regarding what that means for our relationship for another time. Things are becoming increasingly more difficult due to the not so rhetorical question I asked last week...human nature I know but I can't help comparing what I know I would have if I 'settle' for what I currently have, against what I suspect I would have if I took a chance on what could be something incredible. Sounds like an easy choice, right? Trust me when I say it's anything but!

 

I have a couple interviews with staffing agencies next week...not sure how that's going to go so no more details right now. I may not be going anywhere but the thought of 10-20k more a year is rather appealing, especially if it's only a 40 hour week.

Unfortunately there have been many in this last year :( I'm over it

 

first, have a masters in accounting...then spend several years undervaluing your worth at a job you love, but love don't pay the bills...get frustrated after you get told after another year of sacrifice that no one is getting a bonus because the sales team didn't meet goals, research what you could be making with your experience and degree...realize that entry level with a bachelors make at least 7k more than you...start applying to jobs that sound interesting that are well within your wheelhouse and much more in line with your financial value and work life balance ideals.

:D

Congratulations on passing your written test with flying colors!

 

My sympathy on the difficult conversations with D. Also on adding job hunting on top of the relationship stress. I can see how 10-20k more would make a big difference in your situation.

 

Hugs and support on all the things you are doing to make your life better.

Thank you! 

Difficult conversations are necessary, I'm beyond the point where I really feel this will work out in any traditional sense, but there's no reason we can't be civil about things and figure out where we go from here and possibly continue some type of relationship.

 

The Plan....

Food: Make 24 hour plan, eat on plan when hungry, stop when full. 7/7 

Exercise: Continue Bodyweight365, do intervals on Sunday and 'stretching' days (Tuesday and Thursday currently) 1/7, was tired and drained all week. 

extra: This may be more detailed as time goes on but for now it will be accomplishing anything I didn't have planned (aka not sitting on the couch from the time I get home till bedtime scrolling social media) High school games and motorcycle class this week.

Down Time: Three times a week (at least) take time for me, this can be journaling, crocheting, or time to read. This also includes excursions with friends since I tend to be a hermit at times. Going to add getting at least 7 hours of sleep every night to this as well 4/3 on me time, 2/7 on sleep...and I think I see why I was feeling tired and drained all week.

 

So update, we found out we will be getting a type of 'bonus' after all....guess what I'll be getting with mine since I've passed the course :D
