mitch_dee does something to hopefully be successful at it

Holy hell, it has been 7 years since I first found this place......how has it been that long?!?

 

I took a moment last night to look back at all my challenges that I have started over the years and have come to 3 conclusions:

  • I have yet to actually complete a full challenge...wtf Mitch....I think this makes me the most experienced first timer and that technically means I should be posting in the 1st timer's forum...lol
  • This place is still as amazing as it was when I first found it, due to all you outstanding folks
  • Damn I used alot of gifs....

 

Spoiler

(Post review edit: had to add this spoiler in as I just started rambling)

This place has always felt like a sanctuary for me, it is one of the few places where I have been able to say things that I cannot say in my daily life to due the issues it may cause or feelings it might hurt.  Even though this is a semi-faceless group I have been able to voice things that I have not even told loved ones, the reason I feel safe enough to do this is because of the community itself and the fact that never, not once, have I ever felt judged or looked down on.  My biggest disappointment with NF comes in the fact that I withdrew from it when I backed myself into a corner, instead of throwing myself into it more to be able to vent the things that were troubling me (it's a reaction I have to everything when in that place).  Though I have not been to Camp NF, and only watched 4T through social media and have only met one NFer irl, I had at one point spent more time chatting and conversing with NFers on this sight than I spent talking to friends and family.  I had a tear come to my eye once or twice after seeing post from people that I wish I was smart enough to keep touch with.  I just hope of the years and during the times I was here (no matter how short a time) that everyone has known how much I appreciate and admire them.  This truly is a place of REAL heroes!

 

On to the challenge....and maybe a few gifs.....

With my lack of consistency and my natural drive to just throw in the towel when something goes wrong, lets Keep it Stupidly Simple

 

Goal 1: Finish a fuggin' Challenge

  • Requirement: Post at least 2 updates in a week, AND a summary on Saturday.

Goal 2: Put the damn Fitbit back on

  • Requirement: Wear the stupid FitBit and get at least 8000 steps in a day.

Goal 3: Stop poisoning myself

  • Requirements:
    • Stop eating any of the foods that I am not suppose to, aka off my food sensitivity test.  They are bad and cause major issues so knock it off.
    • Meal prep at least 3 days worth of meals, share pictures as proof and accountability.

Goal 4: Attitude adjustment

  • Requirements:
    • Take you damn pills EVERY day....imagine, mood drugs might work better if you took them consistently.
    • Keep motivated, either by posting to myself or posting and following the badass heroes on this site.  
    • Mini Goal: Try to let myself of the hook for my past and believe in myself: listen to the words that others say about me, if I have such faith in there words when they talk about themselves or other NFers, then I need to have at least half that faith in the words when they say them to me.
    • Mini Goal part 2: Stop comparing my progress with others...their chapter 20 is not my chapter 1 or however that saying goes

Goal 5: Find happiness again

  • Requirement: for 30 mins each day do something creative, it does not matter what it is, writing, drawing, coloring, etc.  But whatever it is, do it freely and for 30 mins try not to judge every word or line made, just let go.

That's it for now....I should probably get back to work.  More to come!........I hope...lol

Hello my friend!!! 

 

I have missed you!

 

I am so happy to see you still here and not giving up. If it makes you feel any better, over the years I have started a LOT of challenges  and finished MAYBE 1? 2?

 

What matters is we are here, still seeking support, still seeking to improve ourselves. I found your last challenge before this one and I want to say it's okay if you need to say those uncomfortable things. Even if I don't always know the right thing to say, you aren't going to scare me away. You can always feel free to fb message me  if you just need some human interaction or someone to remind you that you are worthy of love, most especially from yourself.

 

I love creativity goals! I used to be someone who thought "I cannot draw" and then lately I've started fiddling with art and wow, it's so fun! I would LOVE to see some of your stuff :)

 

My challenge goals are very simple as well, so let's get through this together!!

Week Zero summary:

granted I only start the post and goals 4 days ago I want to be fully prepped to start this challenge.  This Sunday start is a little weird.

Goal 1:

no posts, but a summary is here.

Goal 2:

I dusted off the FitBit, got some new wrist bands (the old ones were falling apart) and have wore it since Thursday.  A little over 7k steps on Thursday, but over 8k on Friday and currently over 9k today.

Goal 3:

err... umm....yeah, I'm working on it.  Meal prep will be tomorrow for the upcoming week.

Goal 4: 

I have taken my pills each morning.  Have been following Nerd threads but have not had the time to comment in them all.  I have not done art stuff but for the last few evening I have been reading D&D books and starting the notes for characters I am going to make, to be used in creative writing that I will be doing...and hopefully to play one day.

 

I am amazed at how fast some of your threads grow, I'll try to comment when I can but always know I am following and keeping up on your journey.

 

I very much love you all!  Now off to print some character sheets to make these characters.

I am so grateful to have the opportunity to be here for you friend. (We just learned about this very thing in my bible study class lol.)    Seriously.  I am reading the others checking in here, and seeing you reply back, and it just feels good.     

 

Those step totals are nothing to shirk off!   I am lucky if I get 5000 in a day!    That's awesome!!!   Good job with that!   And @haikoo is right!   Pfft, who finishes challenges around here?  (Besides Raxie and Tank, but cmon, the rangery of the rangers them two) - it's about showing up, and knowing, or even just TELLING yourself, it's good to be here.  To consider.   To think.   To try.    Success is the sum of each failure that didn't stop you.     Or something?  I dunno if that makes sense.   My analogies are either SPOT on, or in a different zip code. :P

lol yes you did!  After last challenge when you talked about 5e being the "big brother" of Pathfinder I scraped my PF character team I was drafting and switched to 5e.....and boy did that change everything up, none of my PF ideas would move well to characters in 5e, so I had to re-draft an entirely new set....lol.  But I have finished rolling 1 out of the 6 that I have rough plans laid out for. I'm using them to start a story line to write from...trying to use the creation process to fuel writing short stories of their backgrounds and possibly lead that into writing quick one off stories.  And if I would ever find a game I can join I would have something ready to play...

This should be easy, I have no specifics on days for goals that last week or so, but I have averaged doing them about half the time....lol, I should probably explain.

 

Week 1:

Goal 2: Put the damn Fitbit back on:

I was ok, wearing my Fitbit, even hit my steps a few different days, then had charge it and forgort it for 3 days...lol

Goal 3: Stop poisoning myself:

Not so hot here.  Having trouble pulling my self back off of the "bad" foods, mostly cause I love them and 2nd because the ones on the veggie list were always some of my main go to's.

Goal 4: Attitude adjustment:

I took my medicine most days, think I missed 2

I did finish 2 more characters, need to get the other 3 on character sheets then start getting back story and current story established

 

That's what I remember of week 1, the reason it is getting posted now is due to the fact that on that saturday afternoon I was hit by the stomach it bug, and when I say hit, I mean hit like a full speed bus...

Image result for hit by bus gif

...a full speed bus full of fluids that we don't mention out of politeness.  So essentially Sat, Sun, Mon, and Tues I was either in bed or in the bathroom.  I called of 2 days of work (which I hate doing and pretty much survived on water, Gatorade, apples and crackers (very little of the latter 2).  and that's how week 2 started.

 

Week 2 (the rest of it)

Was busy at the office after not being in 2 days, and was still only rocking at about 70% full health, Thursday was the first real day I felt normal.  But due to being out Mon and Tues I did not take last Friday off for a mental rest day and rolled right from a busy 3 day work week into going to buy all the tools and supplies needed to paint the interior of our house.  We are getting new floors through most of the house  so I figured we should paint while it does not mater if we make a mess.  A little shy of $300 later we had everything to pull the base boards and paint about 50% of the interiors (the other half is bedrooms that are ok) and then went to prep everything that was suppose to be done the weekend I was ill.  Sat and Sun was painting all day for both, and was of yesterday to get the house put somewhat back together.  So it has been a crazy week or so.

 

Week 2 recap:

Goal 1: Finish a fuggin' Challenge

I'm trying.......

I don't even have a clue on the other goals.

 

So I know I'm two days off but I'm starting week 3 now with a fresh slate.  I am wearing my Fitbit, I am making my nerd rounds, I have posted, I took my drugs and I have avoided all of the "BAD" foods so far today.  Now to do this a few more times this week.

 

I am hoping to get another D&D character done tonight baring COD does not release it's BR today....

Sounds like a helluva two weeks.   But good news.  You're still here and challenging with us!   Life throws life at us, and not much we can do about that.   But you're ready to step forward against today and that's really freaking awesome!

 

Am proud of ya!

 

And your Fitbit forgetfulness is totally my budget forgetfulness.   First day, groceries, gas, yeah!  Day 2, coffee.  Day 3, ... I had .. bought, something?  Day 4.  I'm not counting the $200 VR purchase because that is SO rare a thing... Day 5-9 WHAT BUDGET?
