Starpuck : Recruited by S.H.I.E.L.D.

"The worst thing you can do right now is underestimate Hydra. They hide in plain sight; they earn our trust, our sympathy.

They make us like them, and when you hesitate, they strike. If we're to survive, we must learn to strike first."

"My" Hydra
The bad habits, excuses and temptations that lead to a careless, negative attitude that bends me toward a path I do not want to follow.
 
"My" SHIELD
Strength - Retrain my strength.
Health - Relearn my healthy habits.
Independence - Regain my self confidence by stepping out of my comfort zone.
Energy - Control my energy level, rather than let my energy level control me.
Love - Learn to love myself again, and start loving those around me better.
Discipline - Push through the tough times and temptations.  It won't always be easy, but it will be worth it.
 
 
Hydra has come out of the shadows and into the light.   Cut off one head and two regrow to take its place.    In short?   I had several very successful challenges and, over the course of last summer, got myself to a place of health, confidence and happiness.   I thought I had managed to defeat my enemies.   I had "cut the head" off of some of my hang ups.    And now, after a hard winter and a loss of motivation, I find them replaced with two more where once there was none.    SHIELD has been toppled.    What do we do now?  We survive and we rebuild.

Ok, it hit 78 here today.  Mostly cloudy and super windy, but, still I was able to take my hoodie off at about 1pm.   Haha.   What have I done today?

 

Breakfast with R&J.

Picked up my bro in laws motorcycle.

Came home and dethatched the lawn.

Then mowed it.

Then seeded it.

Dropped bro in law off at car place to get his car.

Got tacos with sis.

Got a chocolate malt because I've wanted a malt for 6 days now.

Cut the garden grasses down and dug out the roots.

Loaded up the airsoft guns and played outside for the next 2 hours.

It's 5:45 now and I am about to eat 2 pieces of pizza so I can drive to hockey.

And play in the first game on the OTHER Co-Ed Team.

 

So ya wonder how badly winter brings me down?  LOL.

Cuz ^^ up there could possibly be a clone that was swapped out for the Starpuck of the last 8 weeks.

It is amazing what a bit of decent weather can do. It doesn't even have to be nice weather, just not crappy. I'm already finding it way easier to get out for a run after work, in the dead of winter there was no way in hell I was doing that.

 

Can't wait to see how this one goes for ya! I'll be cheering you all the way!

 

Also, woo for summer hockey! I'm in my first ever summer league this year!

Wooooo.   Got 8 hours of sleep last night even after staying out on the rink patio eating pizza and having beer with the other teams in the co-ed league.   It was so awesome last night.  A ton of fun playing with and against my friends.   Then just hanging out afterwards to socialize.   Love this kind of hockey.   The other team/league I am on is definitely the competitive one (not jerkishly so at all) but this is just go out and have a good time, then chill.   The jerseys came with the league, and went from like 1-20 only.   So I opted for 11, which was Malkin's number before he joined the NHL.   Turns out the jersey color we have is red with white and blue, so it was totally like Malkin's old stuff.

603616_10203445691133318_495265547029492

 

Yes, I am a total dork. :)   It's ok.    The only downside to last night's game was that I reached up to snag a puck out of the air.  I did it!  And even the other team was like oh great keep in, great keep in.   But, left hand.  Puck.   That's the hand with the messed up finger thing.  OW!  It's gone back to normal level of pain today, so that's gotta be some kind of good sign, right?  Hahaha.

 

I'd really liked to get a walk in today because I have this little mini challenge for myself, to get 7 days in a row of 10K steps or better.   I'm at two.   Weather is nice, right now.  But won't be forever today, and then tomorrow ... rain/snow.  (CRY!!)   ((But I am planning to hit the weights at work, so ok.))

 

I still have to put up my specific goals.   I wasn't expecting to stay at hockey 4 hours after the game ended last night, so woops.   Will work on that here in a second. :)   Maybe I will go take a walk first.   Er, after I switch my laundry from wash to dryer.  Yes!    This is my plan.

 

 

Wufkar - I only ride as passenger.   My bro in law had one my whole life, so I started riding bitch at about 8. :)

Obax - Yaaaaaay summer hockey!  Is it still 5on5 or a 3on3 format?     I'm pretty excited about having consistent ice for this 'off season'.

I love your theme!!  

I totally agree with you that the crappy weather giving way to something approaching tolerable is awesome and great for the mood! My front yard snow bank is finally gone! Hurray!! Today is the warmest day yet at a balmy 20 (68) degrees.  Not much sun, and really windy, but oh so good!

Yay, SP's back!

 

Send the clone to Phoenix for the winters. That would shape her right up. Sunshine all the time, December days in the 60's and maybe 3 or 4 nights a year that we get a hard frost. We get all excited when it clouds up and there's "5 inch rain." (That's when the rain drop marks on the sidewalk are about five inches apart.) When it actually gets the road uniformly wet, the news channels show pictures of raindrops taken through a windshield and puddles in parking lots. I am serious. They do that here.

 

Ms. Clone might want to go back to Chicago in another month or so, though. Even if it is a dry heat...

Oh man, I could not believe how quickly and how drastically my mood/motivation shifted.   It was nuts.   Of course, it's 39 as a high today, and ... snow later.   *grump*   But I have Day 1 motivation going a bit, so we'll try and hang in there.    I do a lot of traveling and the southwest is one of my faves.   I literally did take an hour hike through Red Rock Canyon, in July, at 110.   I mean, I play it smart.  Hat, water, etc.   But it doesn't knock me out.   I really ought to consider, some day, moving to where I am not miserable 6 months out of the year hahaha.

Ok, so I had a day of walking on Friday, and yard work and hockey on Saturday and a 2 mile walk on Sunday, so I rocked 3 days of steps.  But now it's work.  And I have a strength day planned.   And my office is small and requires no walking.  And it's 39 and raining/snowing out.   So how the heck do I manage to get 6000 more steps that my job usually allows me? :D

 

Yayyy you've got your challenge up!  Let's kick some butt!

 

Hey Raxie-friend!  Yes!  The butt kicking shall begin!

Storms last night created a ridiculously bad sleep atmosphere for me.   Fitbit says I was up 3x and restless 18x.   YAY.  FUN STUFF.  LOL.   Not the kind of sleep you want to get the night before Day 1.     Despite that, I didn't hit my snooze button even once.  Got up and got out of the house to work.

 

Air temp: 39.   Currently now?  Snowing.  *cry*

 

Stop at the store to pick up my hard boiled eggs.  OUT!

Dammit, go to next store.  OUT!

Go to Target so I can get the southwestern breakfast bowl.  OUT!

WTF - Seriously???  

Pick up cheese instead.

EAT MY PUMPKIN CHILI FOR BREAKFAST.  HAA!  HAHAAA!  Can't stop me.

Lunch comes.   First day out in the warehouse for a workout in three weeks. 

To be smart, I drop like 20lbs off of every exercise and find this was just good enough.

FYI - Turkish Get Ups are exhausting when you are out of practice from them.

Came in.   Lunch meat, celery, cucumber, hummus.

Orange and some almonds for snack.
FYI - Caracara oranges are the tastiest things ever ... but they peel and split like little a-holes.

Meeting after work.

Then chicken and veggies and spuds (home cooked for dinner.)

Stretching before I am allowed to hit up Dragon Age.

Early to bed because I have a health assessment in the morning.

 

 

My lunch break photo! :)

So educational! I had no idea what a turkish get up is.  I confidently believe I could do a couple of those without the kettlebell!  They look hard.  

 

Also... where do you buy pre-boiled eggs?? I'm not sure I've ever seen that at a store before.  Well, maybe a salad bar... You yankees have all kinds of crazy innovations.  We Canadians boil our own eggs :D

Hahah Yeah, we set a new record or two today!

- Highest temp to be followed by snow within 24 hours.  (Was 80, then snowed.)

- And highest single day temp to occur on a day that also netted 1/2" snow or better.  63 was the high this morning at 12:05am..  We have 2" out there now and it's 25. 

 

LAME.  Hahaha.

 

 

Gonna run tomorrow at indoor track because.

1) I need to start actually running again.  (2 mile walk on Friday and Sunday, to 'get back into it')

2) I've managed to eek out 4 days in a row of meeting the 10k steps goal with my Fitbit.   I feel like I can pull off this 7 day thing!

Bizarro weather.

 

I'd rather do burpees than Turkish getups...

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity:

but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

~T. E. Lawrence

 

When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands,

flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty.

So yup!  Sore today a bit.  Not brutal sore.   So that's good.    Tummy is not happy.  First day back on healthy foods sometimes does that though.  Uuuuuggggghhhhh.     Breakfast and lunch in.   Still telling myself I'll get my steps in at lunch despite the soreness.   Thinking about not worrying about tracking the laps and just running until I need some wind, then walking, then repeating.    Wish it weren't 29 degrees out, because the sun is out and the sky is sooooo blue and pretty.   Being in the sun would be way better than being on the indoor track - oh well.

 

Dinner is out.  So it will be one of my 4x or less of restaurant foods.   BUT, it will also be my 1 new thing per week too, as I get to meet Alienjenn!!!   We're going to DMK Burger - because they get beef from 100% grass-fed cows.  MOO.    And then they gourmet it up, like, my favorite is their bison burger, with fresh goat cheese, pickled red onions, blueberry bbq sauce. BLUEBERRY BBQ SAUCE!!!!   Mmmm.  But today I might try the NY Pastrami, French Gruyere, Sauerkraut, with Leroy’s Remoulade burger.   Choices choices.  :)

 

Also going to face the music, pull money out of savings, and pay off EVERYTHING I owe money on right now.    Then I will tell myself that ALL of my year end bonus (in June) goes back to savings.   I just want to feel caught up and settled on finances.

 

That's the plan!
