NightWatcher13: System crashed, please reboot (2021 Respawn challenge)


Recommended Posts

Acute systems failure due to known glitches with the 202.0 program. Please reboot your system and apply the 202.1 patch.

Restart Eyp GIF - Restart Eyp DigitalSession GIFs

(More details on 202.0 crash here)

So far, the 202.1 patch & update is working much better on my end - I'm halfway through a 30 days of yoga series (which is probably the longest I've continued a workout series in years), am back on a 4*10hr shift schedule which is making food prep much easier for me to handle, and I got myself a Fitbit which is a very bossy little helper that also helps keep me on track. So now that last month didn't (entirely) suck, time to hop back in here.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Main Quest: Reclaiming my health

I'm moving from aiming for my time, which got entirely away from me last year due to gestures broadly, but that's mostly because I actually have gotten back to a 2 days on/one day off schedule, which should help.

 

SQ1 - Doing yoga before work (4/week)

I'm really lucky with my work in that if I go in a bit later than I want to get there, I don't get in trouble - only downside is that if I go in later, I work later to make sure I get in my hours. So last month, I decided that I didn't care if it made me "late" for work, I was working out before I went in with some yoga. Which I haven't done perfectly, due to some muscle soreness from not being used to doing things like downward dog, but on the days I have I've noticed a lot of improvements in my brain, and even on days when I haven't I'm noticing differences in things like my posture. 

 

SQ2 - Food prep on days off (2/wk)

Prepping a lunch to go with me to work for the following 2 days basically so that I don't have to worry about that the days I'm working, since the last thing I feel like doing after 10-12 hr shifts is typically prepping food for the next day.

 

SQ3 - Getting cardio in VR (2/wk)

Because @Starpuck has created a monster, and also because right now Ohio is... awful. Legit, I am NOT going outside into -10 F or colder windchills right now. Plus the stuff on VR is a little easier on my joints than hitting pavement right now, eventually I want to play the rest of the way through Zombies, Run! - but that might wait until a) winter lets up a little bit, and b) I get a bit of weight off and feel a bit better in my knees especially. Which, right now I have P L EN T Y of options on VR between Beat Saber, Swordsman, BoxVR and Vader: Immortal dojo playing

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Hopefully this will give me a decent launching off point to start getting healthy again; I'm sitting at about 250 lbs right now and my joints and breathing H A T E me right now. 

 

Btw, for anyone who feels like it - I made an Insta for food & workout accountability, since it's easier for me to update on mobile than here is (Tapatalk does not like my phone... no idea why, but it won't let me do things) https://www.instagram.com/p/CLCxj7PpgHe/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

 

I'll be starting with this as Week 0, and damn it's good to be back.

Woot woot!   Hey VR buddy!!!   So glad to see your reboot, and THANK you for the call out so I knew where to find you.  I promise to not shove another addiction down your throatESOwhat was that?  ;)  Kidding kidding.  I snagged two others for that addiction.  Heck, if I ever get around to actually trying to stream, I might have a few NF folks show up to at least give me the virtual cheer squad!

 

Great break down on your goals.

Wait, did I say break down?

Break it down now, break it break it down now...  NOW I NEED TO PLAY FITBEAT!

Thanks! Welcome back and good luck on your challenge as well. I know for me with how crazy the last year + was, I was way past due for an update here

Hopefully I can make it stick this time ^^; I'm a little tired of having to reboot the system, hopefully the new patch fixed some of the new bugs from the last couple of years

Week 0 M-Th check in:

 

So far so good; meal prep for T/W got done Monday night, I still need to prep F/Sa meals tonight but have the lettuce chopped and eggs boiled to make the salads I've been taking in tonight. I got yoga in Tuesday, but not yesterday before work - I was chatting with my little sister who's visiting this week before she went to work, and didn't leave enough time to do yoga without pushing me later at work than I wanted to be with her here. VR cardio today was a mix of Beat Saber (since SOMEONE mentioned FitBeat 😆)and BoxVR - I did some Swordsman in there as well, but had a hard time getting my heart rate up with that one. So only 1 point down so far this week.

 

Since I know there's a few other bujo folks in here, this is what my tracking page & month view for this month look like:

Lunch today : Chicken thigh with diced sweet potato (both with a bunch of herbs - lemon pepper, sage and fresh cracked pepper on the chicken; ginger, fresh cracked pepper, and salt for the potato)

And of course, the assistants offering corrections to my yoga warmup this morning before VR stuff:

Week 0 - End of week check in (tonight's food prep technically falls on next week, because my see-saw schedule is W E I R D)

 

SQ1 - Doing yoga before work : 3/4

I did yoga before work 3 days this week.

(Obligatory helpful cat tax)

 

SQ2 - Food prep on days off : 2/2

This was basically what I prepped for lunches:

SQ3 - Getting cardio in VR :2/2

Got this in Thursday and today. Including clearing Greatest Show on expert for the first time :) And I'm doing longer BoxVR classes on average than I had been, more like 15-20 min rather than 10-15 min. 

 

Overall, I'm pretty happy with this week

Quick update for the first half of week 1:

 

I got lunch prepped for today last night, but didn't get it prepped for tomorrow due to not having another clean container (yaaaay dishes). Aaaand I may not be able to do yoga before work tomorrow, depending on whether I have to go in early to train or not - I'll be getting in touch with the supervisor tomorrow morning to find out if I need to be there before 7am or not (I'm normally not in until 8:30, and not even usually up by 7, so yuck)

 

Otherwise, stuff's going ok *hides from the mountain of snow falling outside* I made a roast tonight, and do have some stuff prepped to go with me tomorrow for lunch. I got yoga in this morning, and did some VR after work to get some more exercise to help me sleep better tonight hopefully (I left early, between the snow and needing to potentially be there at 6:45)

Trainee called off, so I got to do my yoga and chill a bit after waking up early. I'm not looking forward to having to clean off the car to go in though

I too am so done with snow.   Ugh.

Food sounds great!   I am having a rare week where I get left overs for lunch instead of my usual sammich and stuff.  Today is steak with sauteed onions and mushrooms and asparagus!

Aww, thanks 🙂 The food was honestly really good & simple, though I need to start upping the protein content (without upping everything else as well too much).

 

That bujo is from Archer & Olive, I've only found a few blackout ones but I love how much the bright ink shows up on them. I cheat a bit with the Bujo setup - I have a stencil I use for the sleep tracker that makes setting that up pretty quick, and a few other decorative stencils for funzies 

 

My cats are a master class of "in the way" lol, we must have some sort of magnets in the yoga mats we're not aware of 😆

 Oooh, those sound like really good leftovers! 

Yeah, the snow (especially the ridiculous amount of cold coming with it) is just getting  old right now. I wound up getting 40 move minutes just from clearing off my car 🙄

Week 1 : end of week checkin

SQ1 - Doing yoga before work : 3/4

Trainee got rescheduled to Thursday after missing Tuesday, so I got up early that day as well... and no trainee. But I also didn't wind up getting my yoga in that morning. Overall, yoga is becoming more of a normal thing, as is waking up more regularly (getting up early aside) which I think is mostly due to the more regular exercise.

SQ2 - Food prep on days off : 1/2

I got food prepped for 2 of my working days, but the other 2 not so much - mostly an issue of having the containers I use to take them in clean or not. I wound up taking in much junkier food Tuesday, and Friday didn't take anything for lunch (did have a smoothie for breakfast at least) - but luckily Friday wound up being a pizza day for hitting 90 safe days for the plant, which aside from free food, yay for no injuries for 3 months :) 

SQ3 - Getting cardio in VR :2/2

I actually got 3 days in on the VR this week, which was really nice with all the crappy weather going on here.

 

I did wear myself O U T between Thursday & Friday though (mostly at work & with getting up 1-2 hrs early twice this week) - I got off Friday, was perky for the first 3-4 hours of my online Star Wars game, then sometime between 11 and midnight my brain just started shutting down, and once we hung up the game I basically passed out until 11 am Saturday morning.

 

No footage of the cat unfortunately since she exists IRL, but Kitana decided to "help" me with my VR stuff earlier today 🤣 

 

Some food stuff from the last week:

Lunch on my day off (smoothie, tea, and carrots/naan with hummus); spaghetti squash & meatballs, I did the squash whole in the instant pot which was WAY easier than trying to cut it while raw; smoothie pre-mixing - chocolate meal replacer(i've used chocolate/vanilla almond milk alternatively), peanut butter, frozen berries, fresh banana, about a cup of spinach and some crushed flaxseed.

Week 2 : end of week check in

This week honestly kinda sucked from a food & workout perspective; I wound up working a bunch of OT, didn't get my food prepped for the second half of the week like I should have on my normal day off that I worked a half day on, and didn't do my yoga before work the last half of the week either 😕

 

SQ1 - Doing yoga before work : 2/4

I got this in the first half of the week, but not the second.

SQ2 - Food prep on days off : 1/2

I got food prepped for the first half of the week Monday night, but wound up working a half day Thursday (which would normally have been my day off this week) after doing some errands earlier in the day, and just did NOT feel like making food ahead. Which wound up with me eating terribly Friday and Saturday, including way too much fast food :(

SQ3 - Getting cardio in VR :2/2 

Managed to get this in today and Monday, so barely bookended the week with it. Which... y'all have to see this glitch from Swordsman's event right now, added bonus - you get to hear me completely loose it laughing at this ridiculousness. @Starpuck, if you haven't gotten this game yet you so totally should try it btw if you like sword fighting shenanigans

Week 3 check in:

A lot of overtime and general hecticness happened last week, so kinda got knocked on my tail a bit as far as goals went :

 

SQ1 - Doing yoga before work :2 /4

I managed to get yoga in before work Tue and Thu, but was struggling against the urge to sleep in a lot of the week due to 12+hr shifts and getting to bed later than I wanted to.

 

SQ2 - Food prep on days off : 1 /2

I prepped for the second half of the week, the first half of the week was pretty crap though.

 

SQ3 - Getting cardio in VR : 1/2 

I got this in saturday (and was on for quite a bit)

 

Thankfully, last weekend was my weekend off - normally I'd be off today as well for a 3 day weekend, but I have a course I'm taking online for work that's today through Wednesday that's 11-7 my time (the course is on PST) so I have a nice laid-back morning and just 8ish hours of actual work for the next few days + homework, so much more laid back than the last couple of weeks. I also used the weekend to get my feet back under me for food prep, and should have a decent time getting yoga in before work with a late start for week 4.

Belated Week 4  check in:

 

SQ1 - Doing yoga before work :2 /4

Did really well for the first half of the week, then the second half of the week kinda went up in smoke 

 

SQ2 - Food prep on days off : 2/2

I managed to prep ahead at least. I also talked to my health coach through work on monday of this week, and got some helpful tips when I told her about how my overtime can explode - and often with little warning. So now, I have some frozen soups and dinners stashed for emergencies where I wind up having to spend extra time at work so I don't wind up eating dinner at 10 pm

Dinner for the earlier part of the week that just turned out really good:

SQ3 - Getting cardio in VR : 2/2 

There were some Swordsman updates and stuff going on, so I was fighting bosses and having a ton of fun on there.

Week 5 check in:

 

SQ1 - Doing yoga before work :1/4

I managed to hurt myself somehow (not sure what I did actually, other than inventory day - which I mean I was on my feet walking the whole time, but that shouldn't have hurt my back) so wound up sleeping and resting a bit extra to let my lower back ease up for most of the week.

 

SQ2 - Food prep on days off : 2/2

I. Got. SOOOOOO much food made on Wednesday - chicken noodle (which is what I froze on my health coach's suggestion), shrimp scampi with spaghetti squash for the base - which was kinda meh, but that was more the sauce than the squash, and corned beef brisket from Aldi that I divided up after dinner with some mashed potatoes and brussels sprouts into basically TV dinners, which were ridiculously good. (also turned one into corned beef hash that Saturday, 10/10 - highly recommend)

ALL the food preps:

SQ3 - Getting cardio in VR : 0/2 

I don't have any tracked on my Fitbit, and the last couple of weeks are a bit of a blur so I'm not entirely certain if I did one and didn't track it or if that was all the previous week.

Challenge totals: 31/48 

 

SQ1 - Doing yoga before work :13/24

This was the part I struggled with getting the most consistency on this challenge, but also one of the things I noticed had the biggest impact on my day at work when I managed to get this in.

 

SQ2 - Food prep on days off : 9/12

This got tough at some points with OT and trying to fit things in around a schedule that did not want to flex much some weeks, but I think I got some extra help and pointers towards the end of the challenge that may help with this part moving forward.

 

SQ3 - Getting cardio in VR : 9/12

This part of the challenge was definitely the one I wanted to do the most, normally the easiest to get to when I wasn't tied up at work till 8pm (or sore like I was the last week of the challenge). 

 

Overall, not the worst - but plenty o'room for improvement. And I also put in a proposal this week to my manager that he took favorably and I already have another team member very much on board that if it gets approved, will move my position and add another person to our team to help balance out the time issues (I'll give more info on the next challenge posting once I get that up.)
