♫ starsapart is lightning in a bottle ♫

Recommended Posts

"'Like an astronaut that's scared of heights

With a heart that's beating at the speed of light
You've been waiting for this feeling all your life
Sometimes it's just hard to realize
When you're stuck in a moment
And your spark has been stolen
This is our time to own it
So own it
Baby, we were born with
Fire and gold in our eyes
Got lightning in a bottle
Hands on the throttle

Even in the dust we shine..."

 

 

 

 

Main Quest:

 

Rehab, rehab, rehab.  Try not to lose my mind or my fighting spirit while I rehab.  Become a better aerialist while I rehab.  Improve my lifts while I rehab.  And be more fabulous like this lovely lady...

Quest 1: you have that lean, hungry look (+2 CON, +1 WIS)

 

tumblr_inline_nhpqzcGute1t8490z.gif

 

I feel you, Jack, I want to eat everything in sight, too.  But I really need to stop eating like an asshole.  No specifics because I KNOW what eating like an asshole is and isn't, and I'll be honest.  I get 4 "fuck it" days over the course of the challenge because sometimes a girl needs a 1200 calorie lunch. :P  Therefore, considering the challenge is 26 days, 22 days of not eating like an asshole.

 

 

 

Quest 2: running away with the circus (+3 STR)

 

bcb50de60d60af5fc89c88a4b4c578c1.jpg

 

I'm never going to assist a knife-thrower or allow myself to be chained up in a water tank, but I can keep on with straddle work.  Getting a bit lazy so instead of reps-per-session, I'll just require a cumulative number of straight/straight straddles.  These can be done on silks or at the gym on the pull-up bar.  50 straight/straight straddles.

 

 

 

Quest 3: finding balance (+3 DEX)

 

tumblr_nqvej3rfGD1r0y7hso1_500.gif

 

Balance isn't always easy, just ask Dottie.  Fortunately, compared to balancing Father O'Leary, Hugh, and Phryne, I feel like I've got an easier task.  I've been playing with forearm stands in preparation for eventually doing scorpion pose, so I'll commit to 8 forearm stand practice sessions.

 

 

 

Life Quest: unapologetically fabulous (+1 CHA)

 

tumblr_nqz6piD52C1r0y7hso1_r1_500.gif

 

I'll never be as fab as Phryne, alas, but I'm really bad at remembering lipstick and perfume - and amusingly enough, when I actually bother with them, I immediately feel more put together and like I can take on the world.  So I think I'll just have to MAKE myself take the 5 extra minutes once in awhile. I'll commit to 8 days of lipstick and perfume.  Maybe it seems silly, but a girl does want to feel fab once in awhile.... and I do not wake up #flawless, unlike Miss Fisher.  I'll even try to post pics because why not?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shall we?

Final Check-In

tumblr_nk1rsuUZuN1twtcg6o1_500.jpg

 

 

Quest 1: you have that lean, hungry look - A

I'm one day short of the mark today, putting me at 95%.  if I eat sensible today, that'll be 100%.  Either way, done deal.

 

Quest 2: running away with the circus - A+

50 straddles done.  And they're feeling super solid now!

 

Quest 3: finding balance - A+%

8 sessions done.  I've got brief hints of balance though there's still work to do.

 

Life Quest: unapologetically fabulous - A+

Did the lipstick and perfume thing 8 times.  Looked extra fabulous for all my meetings.  Am a little more likely now to fuss with my appearance for work, so good things.  Next - get back to doing nice things with my hair and wearing pretty dresses.  Snow, go away.

 


Overall, this format was a good one for the shorter challenges.  I think I'll keep it.  BYE WEEK HERE I COME THANK GOODNESS FOR YOU.

Parts of that show are filmed in my hometown of Ballarat, and I've been lucky enough to see not one but two of the costume exhibitions at Rippon Lea mansion. Soooooo gorgeous.

Miss Fisher is a fine role model for any woman of the world. And I think a lot can be achieved with a silky bathrobe and red lipstick 😉 follollowing

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
Diet is 80% of losing weight, exercise is 80% of motivation.

The only thing I am 100% sure of is my ability to be wrong.

This is making me think I need to watch that show....

waitaminute, this is exactly how you got me into Dragon Age too! Dammit, I don't have time for another obsession!

Following along, btw I love Miss Fisher Mysteries!

 

I'm finding out all sorts of people love it!  I can't believe I only discovered it a few weeks ago.  New favorite thing ever.

Ahhhhhhhhhh the costume exhibitions I WANT.  If this were filming anywhere near me, I would just hang around outside the blocked off area endlessly fangirling.

 

Memo to self: get a silky robe.

 

I did succeed at French perfume + lipstick on day one at least!

 

This is the best theme for a challenge. LOVE IT! :D

 

RIGHT?  It's all I have on my mind right now so..... might as well, right?  Right!  It gives me the opportunity to post the Miss Fisher Texts From Last Night as well.

Yes, but can she climb silks?  Thats the important thing.

I strongly feel that it would be perilous to doubt this. 

 

(Following!)

 

What she said!  Phryne's a bit of a renaissance woman.  She can do other circus things with relative aptitude, why not silks? :D

 

This is making me think I need to watch that show....

waitaminute, this is exactly how you got me into Dragon Age too! Dammit, I don't have time for another obsession!

 

You're welcome in advance. :love_heart:

 

Just submit to the awesomeness that is Phryne Fisher. At least the investment isn't as intense as with Dragon Age :D

 

What she said.

 

Here, ofc.

 

Welcome!

 

Just splendid, really. :D

 

Thank you~!

I feel like I can do the thing buit I often put off doing the thing because I'm always eating or drinking something..... which is why they make lipstick that resists smudging off BUT STILL I MAKE EXCUSES.  Thus, a new leaf is turned.

I mostly love it, having been addicted to the books for 15 years or so, but I can absolutely respect that point of view.

 

To each their own, right?  I read the first 4 books but they made me feel like I needed a scalding shower to scrub off the ick feelings.  And then the show was even more..... like that.  Never going to be my cup of tea.  But hey, we can agree on the amazingness of Phryne and Essie Davis in general regardless. :D

It's extra hilarious because........... Dot.  Sometimes I feel like she spends most of her spare moments praying for everyone else on this show.
