Starpuck - Themeless; I Challenge


Starpuck

Recommended Posts

I've been flaking guys.   

Maybe I just needed a break?  I don't know.    I do know that if I don't get back into a good routine, I'll end up with no routine.  That's not acceptable.

 

I've mostly been still doing things well enough.  Food is fine.  (I had one total badger day in the last 5 months.)  I've maintained my weight between 132-134 the entire last 5 weeks.   I have not been as consistent with multiple strength work outs per week, but I have maintained 5-6 active days per week.    There's been no art, no reading. (I did finish my book and am waiting for my vacation week to dig into the final one of the series.)   I have been fantastic with daily bible stuff - using YouVersion plans.  [Any of you other folks using it want to friend up and maybe do one together and then share ideas and thoughts?]  Too much ESO - but it's been such an easy way for me to wander off from the bleh of life and just be somewhere else.     My cucumbers have been going nuts.  I've harvested probably a dozen and a half nice sized, wonderfully tasting veggies.   Have done some bike rides too, and have eaten out at a patio restaurant twice and that felt awesome.  I also have old school painted two pictures now and that's been kind of fun.

 

So, things to get back to and how I plan on doing it.

 

More Strength Days

- Plan it, stick to it.   Don't worry about improving numbers, or burning calories, just keep the muscles active.

 

Get to Art again

- Art before video games.   My willpower to log off and then do art has been a zero, so now art comes first.

 

Use the BuJo

- I got some stencils and washi tape, and I do better with things if I fill in buttons and circles while doing them.    So I need to learn how to use the stencils - like ... my colored pencils don't fit in them, so are watercolor pens required??  Sheez.

 

Get Stuff Done - I had planned a trip to Shenandoah, and then all the states got more and more goofy and it got harder to figure out yes, no, maybe, yes no?   So I canceled it.   {Good thing too, as immediately after canceling it, I found out I needed brakes AND new tires, and I just had to spend $1700 on car maintenance!! UGH!}    Instead, we are going to do smaller trips this year instead, a 2 night, 2 day stay in Southern Illinois to visit the Illinois Garden of the Gods / Shawnee National Forest and do some bike trails.     Then maybe hit the Indiana Dunes, as they are now a fully official National Park, so it will still count as me hitting a NP this year.    Then just some local hanging out, some reading, some R&R.   I've never really done a staycation before, so I guess we'll see how it goes.    I also want to maybe go to some house showings and see if I can't figure out this buying a home thing.   Though - still not sure if now is a great time to be doing that or not.  Doesn't hurt to get some practice looking at houses though.

 

There will also be a To Do List Thingus that I'll add things on as I go along and hopefully do them by the end of the challenge.

 

That's it.  That's all I got.  

Hoping to stick through the whole thing this time and really get the ship righted - even if I have to pull in at the end of week five all like ...

(I'm using gel pens right now for mine, but that's just 'cause of the black paper. Most of my pens work ok with the stencils normally - I don't usually use pencils, but that's just me)

I like this challenge. You have been killing it for a couple of challenges, so it is completely normal to have a little blah time. This looks like a good reset... and like the life hack of making sure you do art before video games. Let us know how that works for you.

Awesome things happening! My cucumbers are just now starting to grow.

Oh wow!  That's so interesting to hear the different growing cycles.   I am at the point of having to give some away because there are more than I can eat, lol!   So far, none have been bitter so something is going right!

Yeah, I think I need different stencils, or a way to get mine to work better.   Orrr just something.  I want pretty set ups!  Without as much work as super hand doing them.  Alas, must find something.   (Also, I'm going to PM you on here.   The app only lets you connect contacts of facebook contacts, what the heck?  I can't find a way to search you very well.)

This makes sense!  It's just so hard for the brain to accept that.    I could look at it as: "I had successful downtime without reverting to old habits."   That's certainly a step in the right direction!    The hack worked yesterday for sure!

Ok, so bleh.  Ugh.

 

Day 1
Food fine.

Got my strength day in.

Got my art in.

Fussed with BuJo a bit, but not digging it yet.

 

Day 2

Food fine.

Ran errands at lunch, planned to Beat Saber after dinner.

Researched trails for my in state get-away next week; warnings of tick and mosquito infestations have me ... less excited.

You know what  fear more than Covid?  Lyme Disease.   And the other 15 or so diseases freaking ticks carry!   Guy left a recent review on the trail, that he pulled 30 off his dog before bailing out to the road and calling his hiking day quits...

Got home and set up Beat Saber to find my left controller mysteriously cracked and no longer functioning fully.  (It loses tracking constantly.)    Turns out this is a factory defect with bad seams.   Tech guy on YouTube said Oculus will replace so I sent in a ticket and pictures.   Bad news - their website shows replacement controllers out of stock and no date known for availability.  

iIxFhSc.jpg  9TM2OvX.jpg

Amazon however, shows whole new units are back in stock starting on the 11th, and Prime members can have it by the 6th-14th of August.   These things have been out of stock in all of NA for like ... seriously 5 months.   So I bought a new unit.  (And signed up for Amazon Visa to get an instant $70 gift card to use toward it.)    If Oculus also replaces the controller, I will have some back up spare parts.   Sigh.   There goes more money - but this is a health investment at this point and I am not just saying that as a way to rationalize the purchase.   As winter sets in, it will be like ... my ONLY option for cardio stuff.

 

Needless to say, that funked my mood bad.   So I only played ESO tonight.  No brain and energy for art.   It is what it is.

 

Tomorrow is a new day.

Day 3

Food ... okayish.  No. Good!!

Strength Day in.

Art in before ESO night.

Redid BuJo... still don't like it lol.

 

Coworker wanted Chinese.  I knew it'd be bad calorie wise, but he had no lunch and I could tell he needed a reason to order in.  We got one meal, split it, and I ate mostly the chicken and veggies, and still dumped half the bowl at the end.  (Rice and carrots, no loss there.)  Just because I had something off plan doesn't mean I didn't eat well today.  I was super mindful with it.   Oh, and then my bro in law asked if I wanted something from DQ after dinner.  I said a mini Oreo Blizzard.   They got me a small and I still ate the whole thing because I didn't want it around for the next day.   It's fine.   I don't have to be THAT strict at this point.  I just need to still be consistent.

 

Finished coloring and shading a chibi style pic of one of my party mates for our Sunday D&D.   Daisy (my halfling necromancer) casts light for her and her human ranger pal.    She slaps it on his belt buckle because it's a nice height for her. :)

my ONLY option for cardio stuff.

 

I hear trudging through the snow is good cardio.  🙂  Money for fitness gear is always well-spent.

Bwuhaha.  For Daisy, no one is ever happy to see her - I think she's just tooooo cute and outgoing.   And dresses her raised skeletons in fine vests and dapper hats.

Hmm, ya know.  If it's not brutal cold, I love snow.   But so often we get brutal cold and NO snow.... and that's ... bleh.   But yeah.  It will go to good use.

Hee, thanks!  And hey, there you are!  I see you have challenge updated now, but it's past bedtime, so I will have to check it later.

 

  Day 4

Food a-okay.

Got a run/walk in.   1m off and on for 3 miles.   I was DOMS from day before so wanted something not super stressful on the body.

Used my BuJo

Paid all my bills.

 

So, I had a really great experience with humanity today.   Oculus replied back about the broken controller, and asked for shipping address, name, phone number, email - because given the info I provided they wanted to look into replacement options for my setup.  COOL!   They also needed S/Ns from controller, and the entire boxed set.   Sure makes sense.   Also, the Oculus Order# for the purchase or receipt/retailer info/price.    UM.  I bought this second hand off EBAY!     So I reached out to my seller and explained the situation - and said that I would definitely not want him to send any paperwork that offered personal info/etc, but thought I'd see if he had something to help.     I really did not have much hope on this.    ... the guy totally sent me a screen shot of his Best Buy order history showing date, price, order/invoice everything!!!     I was elated!!    Until I started putting all the info together for the ticket and realized the S/N they needed was from the BOX, not the headset, the BOX.   Which I threw out after a month of owning it.    Then, my little 'super organized voice' said, "look in your Black Lagoon ammo tin - you put warranty and box clippings in there'  and sure enough there it was!  I threw the box out, but cut out the bar codes and numbers!!!   So, I feel pretty optimistic that Oculus might send me a replacement controller!!    (I might still keep the second set up because if something else breaks, and these things go back out of stock like I suspect they will... I'd be boned.)   

 

So yeah.  What a great experience with my ebay seller!   Even if Oculus doesn't replace it-  it was so nice to see one human be so open to helping another when they didn't have to.  

 

Tomorrow is last day at work before vacation!  I have a lot to get situated.

Strength day and more art is on tap.

Day 5

Food fine.  Until I went overboard on the cookies while roleplaying in ESO.  Woops. 

Did not do strength day, took rest day. 

Cleaned car mats and inside of car for trip.

Did not art - wanted a chill night.

 

So not the greatest day all around lol?  But not every day needs to be a gun buster.

Today is bike ride, and getting more ready for trip time.

 

Oh!  And I got the RMA notice from Oculus.   I boxed and labeled broken controller and am sending it back today with a prepaid label!   I should be getting a replacement!  I mean, I am also getting the new set on Monday lol - but having back ups in case things break is VERY important.
