Starpuck: Anime-ke it so!

ANIME-KE IT SO!

Another play on words, brought to you by Starpuck.

 

Ok, so this is stretching it, but I wanted to keep up with gif filled anime themes for a while since they're still super motivating for me.  What's better than an anime related, gif filled challenge?   One that combines it with Star Trek! DUUUUUH.   Ok, in truth, I do fancy some TNG and, confession time, my very first RPG video game was a Star Trek based one- and yeah so what if I read the Star Trek Novellas in junior high...  I'm actually not THAT much of a Trekkie in all honesty.   But this was too fun to say to pass it up.   And since I am trying to make my budding health habits into life-long, no fuss-no muss habits, the catch phrase works.    Are we going to get down to business, get the workouts in, and learn to eat healthy without having to think about it too much?  Yes?  Then Make it So!   I have a goal for mid July, and I need to be consistent to make it.  

 

ALRIGHT THEN!  SO NOW WE NEED SOME GOALS ...

large.gif

 

Ugh.  This is proving really difficult this time around folks.   I have come to realize, that my goals are sometimes hard to think up because I do not have a master quest that I am on.    There's no end target in sight.  No final destination.   It's all about losing weight, being more trim, finding a shape I like, being stronger and in general, staying active.   I mean, those are all nifty things, but I don't think I've gotten to the point of doing them just because that's what I do in life.  So they keep ending up on my goal list.  Over and over and over again.

 

Activity Goal - This is hard.  I know I get the best results from 3x / 3x on strength and running.   Once I start up hockey again, I'll be skating 2x week potentially.  Doing that, plus adding in 3 runs and 3 strengths means ... for one, I could use an extra day in the week, or two, I'd have to double up.   Doubling up strength on hockey days isn't that big a deal, but hockey + running can be a chore.   If I change my goal to simply "Be active 6x/week" I'm not sure I'll be consistent on the strength or runs... and then I worry about lack of progress, then I want to change things up to trick my body anyway, and I'm all GAAAAH!   So.   In the mindset that summer is here (not that you'd know it by the gray skies and 48 degree temps we just had all weekend) I am going to, for now, for sanity sake, say, Yes, Just be active 6x / week.    Any assortment of things, but try to balance it all out.

 

Food Goal - I guess things have been working?   But not as awesome as they did in 2013... but I KNOW, (*pokes herself* "you know!") I KNOOOOW that I lost weight really fast in 2013 because I wasn't tracking my calories in versus out and was actually eating less than I should have been.   I need to not let results encourage bad behavior.   So.   Since I'm already tracking food and that doesn't seem to be an issue anymore.  (Hello 101 day streak.)    And since I am eating far more 'IN' than out during the week.  I think I should tackle two things.  Weekend Food Monsters, and Variety.    Going to try a rule of being allowed only 2 meals not at home per weekend.  Yes this means 'quickie' McDonalds breakfasts on the weekends would count as one.   If I want lunch out with family on Saturdays and dinners out with friends on Friday, that's all I get.     The other side to this will be putting some time into creating meals I can take to work, that are different from the sandwich and cucumber deal I've been doing for five months.   Prepare lunches ahead of time 2x per week.

 

Creative Goal - Easy peasy.   Don't give up on the art.   It's good for me to slow my roll and do something that is not computer, game or tv related.  I also enjoy it.   And I may be able to get somewhat skilled at it if I keep it up.  I've no interest in trying to make any money out of it.  It's just a hobby.  My main goal is to get good enough to draw up my tabletop group's characters as we play our various games.

 

Body Love Goal - So last challenge, it was an awkward but, I think, beneficial exploration into the beginnings of accepting myself.   Going to continue on with it this challenge with a slightly different twist.   The camera can be an absolute a-hole- we all know this.   This time around, rather than just grabbing the camera for impromptu snaps of me in whatever unflattering pose or angle I was in, I'm going to try and take pictures of me being active, then complimenting myself on what I see when caught in the act of doing what I LOVE to do.

 

GOAL #1 - BE ACTIVE 6X/WEEK

(Don't be lazy.  Get to the job board and get moving!)

  • Activity 6x/week
  • Pull Up Work 3x/week

 

 

GOAL #2 - FOOD FOR WEEKDAYS AND WEEKENDS!

(Don't be like Choji on the weekends.)

  • Draw, for any amount of time, 3x/week.

 

 

GOAL #4 - BODY LOVE, OWN WHAT YOU GOT

Oh god, the puns! That's 2 punny challenges ina row! Oh, it hurts...... But at least it's a Star Trek pun. I can accept.

 

A bit of a laid-back challenge every now and then is never a bad idea, especially when you have goals like the drawing and body love goal. It'll let you put more mental energy into those while still keeping up with the physical stuff too. A change of focus without losing the big picture. Wait, that sounds familiar.....  :)

Hi Phayze!    Yes yes, Fairy Tail yesssss!  Though I am only at episode 150.   I watch it with my two friends, so I can't binge on it as much as I would others.  We have to all line up our schedules.  Adulting is so hard, yo.

You love my puns, I know you do.  *waggle*   Yeah.   I mean it's still a lot of stuff, just a little bit less OCD on the particulars.

 

I may be behind on the anime gifs, but I'm with you for the long haul, lady.

/lean.   Man I love this tall geek fellow that frequents this forum for me.

 

You don't have a goal. You have a path. That's way different in terms of mindset and execution... but I think you'll find it's the better way to go.

Oooh man, leave it to Kishi to bust out some Jedi like wise-words.   I had not even remotely thought to think of it like that.   And there, in one fell swoop, you've made me feel so much better about things.   I felt like I was aimless before, and now, you're right... a path.  And that feels somehow more secure.  *hug*  Thank you!

Some Pre-Week Stuff

 

Monday I took it easy.  

Tuesday I went for my first run since the head thing.  (Was tiiiiring.)

Wednesday I did a playground workout.  It was sunny out, I was not about to stuff myself in the whse.

Playground workout: 4x6 pull ups, 4x10 one legged squats, 4x12 incline push ups, 4x20 flutter kicks, 100 jumping jacks.

Thursday will be a run and D&D.

Friday is strength and then nephew fun time.

 

My nephew turns 13.   I seriously consider this kid my "baby from another lady."  (Because sprog from another bog sounds weird.)   

I mean lookit this guy!

 

10398738_1191336553935_25180_n.jpg?oh=c1

 

Anyway, this is obviously from his toddler years, but I mean, really!

(And here, same Fair, same wagon, more recent.)

Sandwich%20Fair%202013%20029-M.jpg

 

Anyway, I flaunt pics of my amazing nephew, because, for his 13th b-day request, he wanted to:

 

"Go to Aunt Starpuck's and Aunt R and Uncle J's house, with everyone, then go to a nice dinner out, then he'd get to have a sleep over at our place.  Then we'd drive him home on Saturday for b-day stuff with the other side of his family."

 

I mean.  Oof, Right in the feels.  You bet kid!   We're gonna build a fort, and stay up late playing XBOX and make ice cream floats!  HECK YEAH.    So, strength on Friday at work, and Saturday whatever kid-foo I do will be my 'cardio'.    Finish up with a strength on Sunday and not too shabby for a week off.

 

In OTHER AMAZING NEWS!

 

I am down to the last 1000 pictures needing to be uploaded to SmugMug and that monumental photo album move (over 10,000 pics) and organization will be done!

 

Also - I totally fixed my own car on Tuesday.   My fan was broken.  It worked on 2, 3, and 4, but not on 1.   Some google-foo, a youtube clip or two, and a $30 part.

11138127_10206686247745208_5281326841006

 

TADA!   FAN WORKS.

 

So yeah, it's been a pretty awesome week so far.  

(oh, and the flash pounds vanished already too, woot)

Yay for car fixing! I always feel like such a grownup when I do things like change my air filter and top up my own oil.

 

That kid is cute, and extra cute that his birthday wish was to hang with you. Especially for a 13 year old, I feel like hormones can sometime kick in around then and put a damper on things like that. Then again, you're probably the coolest aunt ever, so......

Awesome challenge!  I like the simplicity of some of the side quests; more manageable, less stress, and more flexibility is something goes unplanned!  Awesome!

 

I have to say I tend to go out and eat out on the weekends so awesome to see you tackling that!

 

And your nephew sounds AWESOME!!  Fantastic 13 year old is fantastic!

 

Happy that the week has been going pretty damn well so far!  Can't wait for the challenge to begin!!
