Alright everybody, it's that time again! 

55.gif?w=830

It's time for my update before my manager gets in to work.  Some of this will be a bit...  chaotic.  

Yoga/Meditation - I'm doing well on this one this week.  I've gotten 3 sessions in so far, and I'll probably be able to make up for last week.  I'm finding that this is better for me in the PM rather than the AMs this go round.  It's my new pre-bed ritual.  Maybe I can make it stick.  It's all been meditation right now, but I'll be getting some basic yoga done this weekend, then next week, I'll look into some more advanced stuff.  Getting a little more zen these days.

Lifting - I got a lift in on Tuesday.  I went with the bench press and the deadlifts this time.  I'm scheduled to go again tonight and I'll work on squats and more deadlifts.  They are going to be a huge help for the fire test.  I have to work up to 175 minimum for that.  I'm at 130 right now.  Time to Hulk out

Unicycle/Juggling/Stilt Walking - Still no pictures, and I'm sorry for that.  And now it's raining, so I won't be getting outside till Saturday.  I will make sure I get a good shot then for you all.  I practiced with my crystal sticks on Tuesday and yesterday was juggling practice with my son.  Good times had by all.  Nothing broken which is kind of amazing.  I usually break something...  ;)

Side Quest 1 - Eating Less:  I've been pretty good.  Last night was the hardest.  I was feeling ravenous
tumblr_lk8hd5qx9o1qbe8v4o1_500.gif
 
We had a good veggie stir fry and my son went back for seconds.  He didn't finish all of his second helping and asked if I wanted it.  I was so close to giving in

I stayed strong and told him we can put it in the fridge for him tomorrow.  He looked a little stunned that I turned down the food.

Side Quest 2 - Life:  So, the always wonderful and helpful Kat sent me a job posting.  I applied for it last night and I have a good feeling about it.  I am still planning on applying for SPFD when that opens in May.  I'm feeling like my workouts are getting a little more tuned to that goal, which I like.  I've also posted two of my newest stained glass pieces online for sale, and have had a couple inquiries about custom jobs, so that's a plus.  I've wanted to have a podcast for a while, and I've started to make a list of topics to talk about.  And bonus, I'm having my son do the same.  Should be an interesting time.  I will need new mics for it though.  It will be an interesting time, to be sure
tumblr_lk7ovc349v1qgthb5o1_400.gif
 
Beyond that, I was feeling really good last night, so I had myself a drink.  Doesn't happen that often during the week anymore, but I couldn't help myself.  
bluto-o.gif
 
I'm also working on my life goal of meeting some NFers outside of the interwebs.  I'm saving some money so I can take a road trip.

Other than that, I hope everyone has a great Thor's Day.  A lot of what I do during the day is changing at work, so I won't be on as much, but I'll still get on when I can.  Make your day awesome everyone!

April 24th, 20XX: Frozen Heart - Disney's "Frozen".  We've been singing this a lot around our house.  The kids like to sing it when they are cleaning up their toys and it's funny to hear.  A couple nights ago, we were shopping at Target and I picked something off the shelf to see if they wanted it.  I passed it to my wife to pass to my daughter to pass to my son.  Then he threw it into the cart and we went to the next item.  My daughter started singing and was very quickly joined by my son.  Soon the 4 of us were singing this (rather loudly, mind you) in the middle of the store.  The giggles they had after was infectious.  Go out and be a little silly in public.  It does wonders for your mental health.

Woooo, sounds like you're totally rocking this! Also, what are crystal sticks?

 

And if you do the podcast thing, you need to give me some protips so that I can also become Internet famous.

 

Best of luck with the latest job application! (What does the job involve?)

Sounds like you are doing awesome :)

 

Can't wait for the podcast. Now you have to do it because you told us about it! Always the best motivation.

 

Happy Thorsday

Being silly in public is our raison d'être.  I love hearing stories from other people doing it!

 

All I know about podcasts is what I've learned from watching Maron on IFC.  That's probably not representative, though :)  Seems like you'd be a natural! 

 

Glad to hear all about your goings-on again!

 The Firefighter's test sounds brutal but I'm sure you can do it.  It seems like a job that requires intelligence, creativity and an overwhelming desire to help other people, you're a natural. If you do podcast Jitters, we will have to figure out the Skype and have you as a guest on our show (that I'm determined to start working on again).

Oh man I love your John Belushi themed updated! Blues Brothers is probably my favorite movie ever. Made me happy :) Also... singing loudly and sillily (that's a word I swear) in public is the best.

Anyway, it seems like things are going well for you/you're on the right track for this challenge. I'd love to hear your podcast if you ever make one... I'm sure it would be full of all the awesome. Hope the changes at work are positive, or at least not bad.  See you around when you can manage it :D

Crystal Sticks are a juggling prop that I like to use on my parade routes.

I figured it I said I should do this, then I'd have to.  My son has some good ideas, now we have to get the recording gear...  Any suggestions?

Silly in public is the best kind of public appearance.  All I know about podcasts is I've listened to Jenn and Bats' and that it's can lead to some serious silliness.  Work is getting crazy, so getting on here isn't able to happen throughout the day like it used to, so my updated have to be done before boss-man gets in.  I'll try my best to keep this thread up to date.

I'm not sure how it stacks up against other physical tests, but for me, it will be rather challenging.  I'm looking forward to it.  If you are willing to have one such as me on your podcast, I'd prepare to get a lot of hate email...  ;)  That picture is probably the best representation of where I want to be in a year.  Kicking ass like Thor and going up against all things Fire.

I'm glad you know of John Belushi.  I mentioned him to my brother's fiance, and she had no idea who I was talking about...  Made me feel old.  The changes at work are positive in that they make me really want to get a new job and I'm applying to a lot of things I wouldn't before because I want out.  Along those lines, two of my team members turned in their resignations today.  They were just escorted out the building.  Because two weeks of their help (which they were willing to give) would hurt our performance, instead of help it...  the logic here astounds me daily.  

 

This made me think of you. I don't know why.

 

Because it's awesome? Probably.

Or because I eat marbles.  Either way, if people are thinking about me, that can't be all bad.

Sub'd and lurking. Glad to see your awesomeness is continuing. You're always the inspiration Jitters

Glad to see you back, even if it's just lurking.  Congrats on your test!

 

That picture is most definitely awesome.

Right!?

 

Quick update because I have to now do the work of two more people when I was doing that of 3 before:

Yoga/Meditation is going well in that I'm doing it, but poorly because I'm entirely too stressed right now for it to be effective.  Stretching feels good, but it's much more temporary than it used to be.

6/24

 

Lifting happened twice since my last update and then I shoveled a lot on Friday and Saturday because they were nice days.  Arms and back are quite achy.  

3/18

 

Unicycling/Juggling happened on Friday with my teaching of a class of 1st graders how to juggle.  It was so much fun!  I hope they all get great at it.  Silliness and bad jokes abounded.  Made it a point to get up on the unicycle on Saturday.  Promptly fell off because it was after all the yard work...

5/24

 

Side Quest Food: Not bad.  Had a little too much to eat last night, but it was a tasty lasagna.  

 

Side Quest Life: Took an actual order for my stained glass.  A new Zodiac Series piece.  Aquarius.  Haven't heard back from the job, but it's only been a few days.  Will check on it on Wed.  

 

Go forth and be silly.

I would suggest starting small and cheap, because you want to find out if it is something you like before committing money into it. Honestly you can record yourself with your phone (assuming you have a phone that records your voice). Audacity is great to use to mix and to convert/compress the audio file. Then we use Libsyn to host our podcast and upload it onto iTunes.

 

Start out with an idea of what you want to do, how long you want the show to be, etc. You'll find the more times you record you will find out what works and what doesn't and like anything the more you do it the better it gets.

Are crystal sticks the same or different than devil sticks? 

 

That makes me sad people don't know who John Belushi is :( Mostly because of Blues Brothers.  But clearly he did plenty of other great things, too.

 

Sorry your job is not the greatest.  Hopefully one of those other opportunities pulls through soon.  Also it sounds like you're on the right track for the challenge :) That's pretty cool about the stained glass. And teaching little people how to juggle.  So awesome!

They are the same in how you use them but different because they are easier to use.  Crystal sticks are coated in rubber for gripping purposes where devil sticks are tapered to larger ends, but un-coated.  Devil sticks move faster and I never got good with them.  

 

The little people juggling was a lot of fun.  They were learning about balance so it seemed to fit together well.  Got the teachers involved too.  I'm due back at the end of the year for a follow up.

^^^THAT (the little people juggling) sounds like so much fun! I wish we had more school groups come to my work, it really is my favourite part of my job. Always makes me smile. :D
