Asha's battle logs


Recommended Posts

Finally decided to start a battle log. Found this amazing community and on my second 5 week challenge now :)

 

I really would like to just get back into shape, and stay there. As well as keeping up with other healthy habits.

 

Not sure what else to put here, so I guess I'll just introduce myself a bit:

 

I honestly don't remember how I found Nerd Fitness, but I did and now I've found this great community!

I've graduated college, and looking forward to joining my other half and taking his name in May :)  I used to play basketball and absolutely LOVE to run, but recently haven't found the time to do so (plus, it's been cold out and I'm not a huge fan of treadmills....🤷‍♀️)

I have a cat that was such a cuddle bug until an extended relative hurt her somehow, and she became super scared of people. She's slowly warming up to being around people again, and I'm hoping that when I move her to an apartment relatively soon that she'll take that well (right now she's an outdoor cat, living in my breezeway with her four friends.)

I do various things for work and technically have four part time jobs right now, so life is pretty busy and finding time to workout, run, or actually keep on top of healthy habits has been a struggle. I'm hoping I'll be able to get into running again pretty soon here as the weather warms up and I find more time to do so.

Still not really sure what to put in here. I've been updating the book log as needed, but often feel I don't have much else to put in here with doing the 5-week challenges.

Note to self:

Don't do more than 10 squats and expect to be able to walk normally afterwards....... 😂 I don't know how many I did yesterday, cause I didn't count, I just know that I can feel the muscles in my legs that are used for squats.... lol

So, I guess I could give a small "life update"?

 

Disney Wedding GIF

I got married to my wonderful Mr. a few weeks ago. :)

  • Currently working now full time (often feels like it's 24/5-6, not 7 though so that's nice). I've found it slightly hard for me to keep on top of my goals for the 5-week challenge with my schedule getting busier, but I'm slowly getting used to finding time to slide stuff between things.
  • Somehow I convinced my man to do pilates with me (honestly, I don't care if he does it or not, I was just kind of wanting the mental support of him being there while I do it). We're planning to start that towards the end of this current 5-week challenge (which I guess is tomorrow), so yay! [Maybe he'll be happier with the idea if I go running with him.... lol]
  • Someone had asked for wedding pictures, I need to talk with those in them to make sure they're okay with having them posted on social media and the like, but I'm hoping to share a few. :)

So. funny story about a job I did for work today.....

 

My boss had degreasing and deliming the dish machine on the list of things I was working on today (after a boat load of dishes that needed washed).

I've never done said task before, so I asked him how to do it. He eventually called D (my better half), and explained which chemicals needed to be put in the machine and that we just needed to run it through about 5 times or so. Sounds easy, right???

 

.......That was a lot easier said than done...... lol.

Put chemicals in? Check! ✔️

Turn on machine? Check! ✔️

Start running it? Check! ✔️

 

.....Bubbles...??????  :confused:

So the floor got a good cleaning too! 😂 We sure got a workout scrubbing up the bubbles!

 

.....note to self....put cleaners in in smaller amounts next time. lol

2022 Goals:

  • Read at least 15 books
    • Finish the Silmarillion
  • Read through the entire Bible
  • Survive labor 😂
    • Continue to keep Marvin (Betta fish) alive following Baby's arrival

> Marvin died already, so this in N/A now.

  • Do Inktober52 - complete as many prompts as possible (One/week)

> Decided to skip this one this year. Might do Inktober when it comes around in October, but the way life has been recently and Baby almost here I think it's best to try this again another year.

  • Stay relatively active in the forums
  • Work out potential business plan & maybe start business (?)
    • [sub goals TBD]
  • Like 2
