Legs on day 1 doesn’t sound like the worst idea ever though… 🤔

 

I switched it up this week. I did an upper body day to start the week and moved legs to Wednesday. I WILL NOT SKIP THIS.

For me, it’s double underhand barbell rows. My wife even knows that’s my favorite exercise ever haha

I need to do underhand more often. I rarely do... but I know I could pull more weight if I did. I'll try these next time I do barbell rows :)

This is wisdom. Points to Spezzy for pointing this out, and frankly to both of you for good communication. Days off are important. If you're gonna be a paladin you gotta learn to Honor the Sabbath.

 

Sunday just feels like the right day to rest.  Plus a sunny Sunday is doubly Sunday!  ;)

Communication leads to wisdom, as it often does! Very good to have some time to relax and recharge... even a paladin needs to regain mana to continue his quest. (I play WoW tbh I don't know DND much so... mana?)

 

Really liked your starting post too, lots of passion to achieve your goals, and lots of insight.

 

And we aren't the best communicators at the best of times, us both having spent 20+ years of adulthood more or less on our own rather than learning how to live with another.  But we're learning!  Even if it's slowly haha.

 

I'm a 'lifelong' (since 2005 anyway) WoW player too so that's my better understanding of character classes.  Never played DnD or a lot of things but oftentimes learn the lore behind those characters because I have a knack for characterization and stuff.  But especially I am all too aware (if not cognizant of, in the moment) of the need to recharge whatever resource system we power our day-to-day with. 😫

 

Welcome again to the Forums, Aziriel.  Thanks for swinging by :)

I find Wednesday to be a great day because it isn't a struggle at the beginning of the week nor too close to the end of the week that you can just skip it!

 

Barbell rows are #CrusaderMode

I'm off to Home Depot to swap out our power cord (apparently laundry units no longer come with those installed) because we received the wrong one for our ancient ancestral wiring (which actually makes my job way way easier since residential electrical code keeps updating lol), but after that it's just a matter of wiring it in!  And we'll have the grey water system function by end of day too.  Big steps!

This is something I am realizing I will have the hugest struggle with.  Well, I've not been 100% on my own - I rent a room at my sister's house.  But when I get out, and if I have someone else around, I feel like it's gonna be My way or the Highway.  LOL  You'll have to pass along some helpful tips!

Well I got about 90% of the laundry plumbed and wired yesterday, have our grey water system going (infinite shower times!), and even managed to rig a workout for a lightswitch to the otherwise disconnected cellar lights, buuuuuut...

 

I had some weird migraine thing worse than a usual headache where I basically spaced out right through dinner, and I've still been recovering from that.  No fun!

 

Anyway, that's my update for today.  Hopefully back at it tomorrow!

You're probably better off asking Spezzy, but honestly... having a rough schedule for things has been huge so everyone knows when meals or workouts are, and enables you to plan your day around someone else so much more effectively!

 

Oh, and regular check-ins haha

Inv_trinket-knights_crest.webp  [Fires of Battle Quest Log]  

Challenge Journal:  This 16th day of February, in the year 2023.

Weight:  230.1lbs  

 

The scale creeps ever downward.  As it was calibrating this morning, I oh-so-briefly saw 228 which was thrilling but it settled on 230.1 which I'm absolutely content with for now.

 

Worst of the migraine situation has seemed to have passed.

 

The new Diablo 3 online season starts after this weekend, so I think I'm gonna level a Crusader to sate my Holy Knight cravings.  Warcraft hasn't been doing it lately, Elden Ring takes so much focus for a session because it's so damn hard.  But I'm excited about Diablo and had forgotten just how much I love that world and its themes.  Angels vs Demons, High Heavens vs Burning Hells, and we poor humans (or our superpowered Nephalem ancestors) thrown into the middle of it all on Sanctuary. Grimdark and ominous, only pyrrhic victories... but fighting them anyway.

 

So I finished the laundry installation yesterday, even so much as troubleshooting why our dryer wasn't heating (the previous owners didn't wire their second hot wire into the panel).  Super thankful for the insights my electrician apprenticeship granted.  In other news, our second anniversary is next week and Spezzy has the whole damn week off, so we're going to do a mini-vacay and do some house stuff... like building a chicken coop for when our newest farm animals arrive in a month or two!

 

Exhausted and sore, but glad to be alive today.  Fire & Iron, even when it feels more like Embers & Rust 😅

 

And that's how it feels coming out of a migraine-induced setback.

 

To slay the Prime Evils:
  • Suffer not the profane to exist, [TEMPLAR'S VERDICT]:  Bleed_dd2.jpg☐☐☐☐.☐☐☐  Only 1 row in, zero rucks so far due to recovering from migraine.  Still 3 days left after today though... 🤔
  • Uphold the glory of the Sacred Flame, [FLAME, GRANT ME STRENGTH!]:  Burn_dd2.jpg☐☐☐☐  Push 1 conquered with a vengeance.
  • Abhor chaos.  Destroy indolence, [LITANY OF THE IRON VIGIL]Debuff_dd2.jpgDebuff_dd2.jpg☐☐.Debuff_dd2.jpg   Here's my first update but second round of catching up in lieu of an update, and weighed in.
  • No commitment shall be left unfilled, no matter the odds, [FIRE WITHIN, IRON WITHOUT]:  Icon_HP_dd2.jpgIcon_HP_dd2.jpgIcon_HP_dd2.jpg☐☐☐☐  Nutrition has historically been my weakness but I'm really crushing it lately honestly.

Migraines no good. I hope you are fully recovered soon.

 

Twas a bit scarier than a simple migraine, but other than residual soreness and headache aftershocks, 3 days later I'm feeling mostly human again!

I've instituted mandatory relaxation time for Spezzy since she might actually be worse at it than I am.  Also we're super excited to make a pilgrimage to the IKEA 1.5hrs away next week ;) that's MY idea of a vacation trip haha

 

Looks like next week is back down around freezing but no more nuclear winter blizzards would suit me just fine!

Bro, SO STOKED FOR DIABLO 4! I'm super bummed that they won't have a pally or crusader to start with...which doesn't make a lot of sense IMO, but otherwise, I'm excited. If you pre-order the game you get early access/beta coming up at the end of March and a couple days early access when the game launches in June. 

 

Heather and I have been playing couch co-op with D3 recently and she's rocking the Crusader. I went with Necro to balance out the team a little more and we absolutely wreck shit lol. I 100% feel your Diablo vibes lol.

Lazy update:  It's been a week.  Between holiday shenanigans and house planning and anniversary stuff, I basically took the week off all my usual responsibilities - minus meal tracking, which I've kept up with, becaaaaaaause... my migraines have come back with a vengeance.  Ever since my little whatever-happened-last-week it's been a world war in my skull and I haven't been up for much.  Trying to push through really didn't help, eating doughnuts didn't help (nor did it seem to hurt, mind you ;)), so I've just been trying to endure minute by minute to get through the week.

 

The plan is to take this week a little easier despite my projects on the go and focus on resting and mending.  Still alive, still keepin' on... just not having much fun.  Looking forward to getting any kind of activity in this week above and beyond morning walks but I'm pleased to say I haven't let everything come undone.  Might not be feeling very Crusader-like but I've committed more egregious sins during injury or illness in the past so that's a win.

 

In other, more exciting news, WE GOT CHIMKINS.  It was always the plan, figured we'd start with 6 or so to make sure we enjoy the lifestyle of farming our own eggs, so we picked up 6 layers from the next tractor supply a town over.

 

Then two days later, we drove an hour to get 10 more 🤣

 

So the house has been an amusing cacophony of confused dogs, confused cats, and cheep-cheeping.  Head over to Spezzy's challenge if you want to see pictures of our newborns! haha

 

All is well in the world, even when it isn't.  :D

It truly is a tragedy, and we decided to wait another week.  The big purchases we needed were a new couch (too many animals to share space with on this one) and dressers to start our closet organization, but with the dressers in stock, it didn't really feel prudent to make the trip with only half our aim in stock.

Thank you!  We found fancy doughnuts, in honor of our COVID wedding donuts in lieu of a cake, and went out to a really cool old mill restaurant (which I'm sure @shaar is aware of).  Food was decent, luckily one of their two beer on tap was better than serviceable, but the décor left a little to be desired haha (think 1992).

Unfortunately that simple fact is a deal breaker for me at this point.  I only want to play their holy warrior, and without one, will not be committing my ultra limited time and $90 to another potential Blizzard fiasco 🤣

 

I'll wait for a post-release xpac or DLC for my holy fix.  Until then, I have Diablo 3 and Immortal to keep me company ;) 

 

Also, on the new patch's test realm for Warcraft, they're overhauling the much-maligned Retribution (DPS spec) Paladin and making it look pretty spicy... I've been kinda turned off WoW for a while but that could be worth a dip back into the pool. 🔥

The Crusader is by far my favorite gaming interpretation of the Paladin archetype, save maybe the perfect Paladin build on Elden Ring.

 

Necro is a close second though, oddly.  I'm gonna use one to powerlevel my Crusader this new Season.

Incorrect, we got 8 the first day, and then got 10 more. 

 

This adds up to a total of SIX chickens, just like you said we could get.

I only want to play their holy warrior, and without one, will not be committing my ultra limited time and $90 to another potential Blizzard fiasco 🤣

 

If it wasn't for the ability to build out a quality burst rogue build with the opportunity to skewer enemies with a bow...I wouldn't be AS excited. Also, the Druid looks cool AF.

 

Time to kick ass this week, Harrgath!

Know, O prince, that once the sun burns out and the earth's core becomes solid and cold, there will come a man to provide the endless energy needed to sustain life and for the planets to keep moving. He is the source of light and the warmth of hope back into the hearts of humanity...." - Dark_Raider

 

A wolf rises in my heart; against my darkness; against my demons; against my despair. I DECLARE WAR!

 

Romans 8:28 (CSB) We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.

Yay for berbs!    Wee baby berbs!

Sorry to hear about the migraine issues.   I'm with you -- my dumb body does NOT react badly to bad choices when I am hurting or ill.     Like, could you at least crave good for you things when we're trying to mend something?  But nope... all the junk foods is like 'we got you bruh'   So unfair.

 

Hope the head feels better soon.

And enjoy the berbs.
