Starpuck: Anime-zing Return!


Starpuck

Recommended Posts

â–² This is me trying to come up with a challenge format on a weekend!!

 

Hello my peeps!  It's been a while eh!   Nevermind the assassin title there on my signature, I assure you, we are totally here as bonafide, genuine rangers.  Yus.  Absolutely.   Did I say we?  I meant I...   We would suggest a small infiltration group, and I of course, am here, all alone... yes.  As a ranger.     ;)

 

Ok enough with the jokes!  (Or maybe they're not jokes...)   I ran my first 2 years here as a ranger.  I can't believe I've been here since 2013!    And as my training is really taking a shift back to a combination of many things, I felt a return to my first guild would be in order.    I run, but nothing past a 5k.    I strength train, but it's a combination of a lot of things at this point, and I hockey.   

 

The thing is; In early September I tried water skiing.  (I totally got up and I love it.)   BUT, I'd been nursing a 'chatty' shoulder since May.  Nothing insanely painful, just certain motions (bench press and push ups) bothered it and I kept sleeping on it and mucking it up.   Water skiing wasn't just a nail in the coffin, it was freaking LANCE THROUGH THE SHOULDER!   Long story short, cortisone shot + 3 months of PT and ... no relief.   Nothing is torn, there are no spurs, I just have hella inflammation and impingement.    My original doc (not happy with him, trying other approaches) said that surgery is now the next option.     I'm not fan of surgeries to fix things that aren't mechanically broken, so I am opting to give myself 3 months of self rehab.

 

â–¼ What my shoulder felt like after water skiing.                                                         

365d934ab59280d3dbec194459c617df57891e63  

 

 

â–¼ What my last 3 months of fitness, diet and overall health looked like.

tumblr_static_tumblr_static_er7iluvrfago

 

So, while the shoulder has limited me away from the things I love doing (pull ups, cry.  I was up to 7!!  SEVEN IN ONE SET, and they are all gone now..) and has in general, been a royal pain in the ass, I have to decide:  Let it control everything, or learn how to work around it and really really be consistent on fixing it.

 

Without further ado.   My challenge....

 

Goal #1 - Shoulder Rehab

  1.  Traumeel rub 2x/day  (After shower, before bed)
  2.  Ice 3x/day  (After bf at work, after lunch at work, after dinner at home)
  3.  Stretches 2x/day, foam roll daily.
  4.  Home rehab program daily, as written.

I know that's like 4 goals in one, but they really all need to be worked on and two of them are just quick little things and the other two could technically be combined.  This will act as the 'strength' portion of my fitness until I can add in other strengthy goodness.  I may, after I get in a good groove on the shoulder stuff, split the shoulder moves between two days, and add in lower body/core work in so that every day is a light, but still full body circuit.

 

Goal #2 - Running

  1.  Run 2-3x /week.    Simple.   Work back up to running 5k at a shot.    (Flexibility to allow for weeks there is much hockey.)

Because some dumbass signed up for a triathalon in June. (Just a sprint distance, so 1/2 mile swim, 13 mile bike, 3.1 mile run.)   **What. Dafuq. Was I thinking?**     

 

Goal #3 - Track Food

  1.  Track food in MFP daily.   Aim to eat 1500-1800 calories.    (This is slight loss to maintenance level depending on my activity for the day.)

I've done it before and succeeded with it.    I already have hundreds of things built into MFP so this isn't a monumental thing to try and to with the rest of my goals.    Try as I might to 'wing it'.   Especially now with my usual activities having to change up, I need to know what I am putting into my gut.   I also want to really try and mimic the anti-inflammation diet as much as I can without being zealous about it. 

 

Life Goal:

  1. Art something twice a week.

I have a huge creative side that I do not nourish enough.    I was gifted a drawing tablet and software for Christmas.  I do not know how to use it at all.   Like at all, at all.   This is going to be a very good challenge for me to work through something I am not 'immediately good at' and learn how to put in hard work and time and effort.    Since I'm torn on music and drawing, I've the challenge simply as art.   It can be hand drawing, digital drawing/learning or playing the piano.  But twice a week, slow my roll and do something creative.

 

Prep work for tomorrow is:

  • Take my home workout from my PT and separate the stretch moves from the rehab moves so I have quick visual markers for what is what when I do it.    
  • Take measurements as a new starting point.    And possibly a before picture.   (Anyone else have like seventeen different "befores" lol.)  
  • Make a grocery list for work food.

Starting Measurements:

Weight 152.2 Ugh!

Bodyfat 33.3%

Muscle 27.6%

Alright!  Let's do this!

Woo, challenge! It looks an awful lot like mine will, when I get around to posting it.......

 

Is there, like, a headquarters for the infiltrators group around here anywhere? A dark corner in which we can meet and compare notes and prepare the intelligence reports to be sent back?

 

Oh, wait...... Did I ask that out loud? Uh, I mean, hey Rangers, how ya doin'?? Nothing to see here, we're just chillin' over here. In the shadows. With hoods and glowy collar things........

To be fair there is a lot of overlap between the two. Assassins seem to tend toward more interesting things like circus classes and such, but when you factor in kettlebells as not being body weight the guilds are heavily mixed.

 

Actually, it is a like like Gryffindor being the house only for those who request it. Neville and Ron are Hufflepuffs, Harry a Slytherin, Hermine a Ravenclaw, but they all asked for Griffindor so they became it and that becomes what is common to all of them. The choice between Assassin and Ranger seems to be the biggest difference in the people in them.

 

For me, although my dreams, long-term goals, and inspiration is often Assassin-y, my challenges tend to be more similar to Ranger threads.

Lol, I wondered why there seemed to be a sudden influx of Assassins over here.  I don't know if it's much of an infiltration since we're obviously the best guild, and kind of cocky about it, super friendly and love having people bring in new training styles.

 

In any case welcome back ;)

Sometimes I feel like a honeybadger in regard to who and what belongs in what guild.    Honeybadger don't care!  Honeybadger just guilds where it wants!  LOL.   But yussss, more infiltration.   And thanks for the encouragement on the shoulder.    I'll give it a good go at fixing without surgery, but if nothing works - then well, I won't tolerate this pain for the rest of my active life.   So one step at a time.

 

You think of yourself like this:

When in actual fact you are like this:

Whoops!  That's actually me when I see pics of you.

 

How about this one?

Aaaaaahhh...  that's better.  Much more Starpuck-y.  Got your back on this one, lady.

 

Zomg, I loved this post so much 7FG!   <3 <3   Thank you for making me feel the feels with such awesome gifs.    I really do love King!

Lol, I wondered why there seemed to be a sudden influx of Assassins over here.  I don't know if it's much of an infiltration since we're obviously the best guild, and kind of cocky about it, super friendly and love having people bring in new training styles.

 

In any case welcome back ;)     

Hee, thanks!   Influx!    And ahemsecondbestguildever Rangers. :)   Ok, who knows, especially since I feel like the two are sooooo similar in personality and styles!   Thanks for the WB!

 

Yayyyy Rangers can haz a Starpuck!!

Yus, rangers can haz a Starpuck.   Especially since awesome Raxie is a ranger!

 

Sorry your shoulder is still a mess. They sure it's nothing mechanical? That's an awfully long time for persistent inflammation...

Good challenge! Muah! (That's a kissy face sound. I can't figure out gifs on my iPad...)

 

The MRI said nothing was torn and there were no spurs.   Tendonitis, bursitis and painintheassitis seems to be the big thing.   The impingement, my chiro said they could fix so long as there were no spurs.  I gotta see them this week.

 

Yay!  Found your challenge thread!  Your goals look good, particularly like the shoulder rehab plan.  That first doctor was just trying to fob you off, and I think a good dedicated run at reducing inflammation is a great idea!  Enjoy your cold date with your ice pack - you should give it a name!  And a face!

 

Look at that score sheet!  Unassisted!  

 

As for the Black OPS line, we are totally stalking the blue line!

Yup yup, short handed too!   That was totally on my list of 'types of goals to score'.   It was a great game!    Hmm, name my icepack?  I've got four of them.  God I'm such a floozy!  LOLOLOL!

 

This challenge I will try to actually pay attention and comment on posts instead of following them for a couple weeks, forgetting about them because tapatalk stops giving me notifications, then giving up when I realize this has happened.

Awww!  Thanks fellow Star.   Btw, I know how that goes.   I've some people I want to follow -but if I miss a few days, and have like 8 pages to catch up, I dunno what to do lol!

 

I'm super jealous of your amazing hockey ninja star accountability group!!! but.... not jealous enough to learn to play hockey right away.

Right away?  Is there a potential maybe in the future?  Oh that would be so amazing!  

 

Hooray! Found you!

Goal #1 - Shoulder Rehab

 Traumeel - DONE X2

 Ice 3x/day -  DONE X3

 Stretches 2x/day - DONE X2

 Home rehab program daily, as written.   Strength Program Done

 

Goal #2 - Running

 Run 2-3x /week.    (Tomorrow)

 

Goal #3 - Track Food

Track food in MFP daily.   Aim to eat 1500-1800 calories.

In 1517.   Out 2053.  

 

And I ate way more fruit than I ever have in a single day in my whole life! (Blueberries with breakfast, orange with lunch!)  Yes, two a day is more than I've ever done before.   (I had veggies too.)   My shoulder and muscles in my arm are really really pissed today.   I think it's from the hockey yesterday- but I think it's one part 'issue' and one part 'just doms'.    Hopefully it's a bit better tomorrow.  Because this sucks big time!

 

In non-sucky news, I had the most amazing news at work today.   At 4:55, my manager asks if I have a minute to talk.  I say sure.   We walk down to the conference room and he has a pad of paper in hand.   I'm freaking out now, because these 'private talks' are typically 'you fucked up' talks.    We sit down and my face must have been wraith grey.    He then proceeds to say, "First off, I don't know if anyone has said this, but since Tannis retired, you have really really stepped up and been on the ball... and it's been noticed, across the board it's been noticed.   And we want to say thanks you and we appreciate that..."    More niceties are spoken and shared and ... he drops the bomb that they are giving me a raise.   A SIGNIFICANT raise.  Like 13%.    This is unheard of at my company.   They do bonuses.  Really nice bonuses.    But not raises.   So this is huge.   And I think I am in a bit of emotional shock.   Like, it spiked my emotions so high, but at the same time it didn't feel real, so then there was this weird 'sugar crash' of emotions like, wait what?   

 

And then I get reminded that my boss is giving me the Hawks tickets for Wednesday because they are playing the Penguins.   *Jaw hits floor again*     I almost can't keep up with this week.   In a good way!    So, with that, I am gonna tuck myself into bed early tonight.  Tomorrow is a run day, but I still need to get in my 2x stretches and some of the band work.

Shorthanded unassisted!  Even better!  And four icepacks is totally acceptable - and even more necessary that they have names!

That's awesome!  Wow Starpuck, what incredible news!  Being recognized for your work is one of the best feelings in the world, and I totally understand how overwhelming it must have been since it was so unexpected!  Enjoy your raise, sounds like you totally and completely deserve it!
