NOW WITH ACTUAL CHALLENGE GOALS!!

 

28973596.jpg

 

It should be of little surprise to anyone who has followed me on here for any amount of time that I keep a full plate... PLATES!! of things to do at all times. Sometimes I end up feeling I have that one too many plates stacked and I get super stressed out and overwhelmed. An excellent example -- this week would have been nuts anyway, but then LIFE HAD TO GO AND HAPPEN and someone hit my parked car last week. That added stress off AAAH CAR MY BABY WAAAAAH and WHEN WILL I HAVE TIME TO FIX THIS on top of my already intentionally crazy schedule... this week has sucked. Hard.

 

Inspired by this past week of ARGH AAAH SO MUCH TO DO AAAAAAH OVERWHELMED... the theme of this challenge will be maintaining my fitness schedule (albeit more moderate amount of exercise than I would like...) while making sure I fit in time for self care. The dance show I am working on is happening on Mother's Day weekend -- we are getting into super crunch time! So focusing on my sanity and self care are KEY!!!

 

GOAL 1 - CHILL TIME -  I need down time. Like bad. Clearly I don't get this if I don't plan for it. I would ideally love an actual full DAY of downtime at least once per week, but given rehearsal schedule I will settle for at least one solid chunk of 4 hours of no planned activities (including social activities!) once per week (no. sleeping does not count. Hahahaha.)

 

GOAL 2 - MAINTENANCE - I am getting a TON of physical activity with craptons of dance rehearsals but I still need to make sure I fit in some dedicated strength training in there somewhere. At least twice per week work on strength training. It doesn't have to be all of these in each workout, but it'd be good to try and touch on each thing at least once per week -- PUSH, PULL, CORE, SQUATS.

 

 

With my current level of stress and ACK I am keeping it to just these two things right now!

I have soooo considered ordering one of the unicorn horns or the black one but the main cat I would want to put it on would be my Mango kitteh and she has a HUGE head and I don't think they would fit. Lololol.

 

But seriously doesn't this cat look like she needs a unicorn horn?!

 

 

 

Also....this morning...lolololol. Today is one of those days I am impressed I managed to dress myself and I managed to put mascara on my eyeball. I NEED A NAP AAAAH.

ARGHH! My life right now you guys. Lololololol free time what's that?! Ahahahaha...I did this to myself!!!

 

This weekend went something like:

 

Saturday: rehearsal, then 'rest' except I needed to at least get started on my taxes, and I was going to stab someone if I had to do my taxes on my mom's ancient and slow computer soooo Saturday evening was me copying over all the turbo tax stuff/ whatever else she wanted copying over and setting up mom's new computer and installing tons of things. Barely started taxes but realized I needed a damn break so I did beer and Diablo with the family. :D

 

Sunday:  Training session with my powerlifting trainer. We did volume deadlifts. Figured out I can AMRAP a 135 lb deadlift 7 times (could have done 8 I am sure but didn't want to push it!) He thinks I could probably do 200 for a single rep max but he wants to slowly work me up and focus on form right now! :) Then I drove 2 hours to go hang out with a new friend and met some of his other friends and we played DDR for 4 hours or so and then went out to dinner and then I had to drive back. GOOD TIMES but I am tired.

 

Monday: take poor sad car in for damage estimate. Lololol $6874.52. Thank fucking goodness for uninsured driver coverage because YIKES. I think I still have to pay my deductable but that's only $250 so comparatively...... I am going to have to pay for my rental since I don't have rental coverage on my policy. Momma offered to cover that for me but I haven't decided if I will take her up on it. I take car in next Tuesday and they anticipate needing it for 2 weeks. TWO WEEKS. My poor baby :(!!!!

 

 

Recap: 

So far 1 out of 2 maintenance strength training days

Uh...yeah that chill time goal...hahahahahahahaha. Hahahahaha...uh....Maybe Saturday? But I have to work this Saturday for an outreach event sooo. O.O My life you guysssssss.

Oh man. Sounds like a busy weekend. Poor car. Hopefully it will take less than the 2 week estimate.

The whole point of the chill time goal is that you gotta schedule it! Block off the time in your calendar!

I know I know.

 

I also just realized that the aerial class I signed up for when I was clearly not thinking about how insane this month was going to be is supposed to start today. Bahahahahahaaha. Yeaaaah...so I emailed the Rec Cen to see if I can beg them to refund me because NOPE hahahaha not going to happen. I have 5 days of 3 hour rehearsals next week and the week after and then the week after that-ish will be tech week and maybe 40 hours? At least? of dance rehearsal. NOPE NOPE NOPE to adding in another class.

 

I'm also thinking I may need to bail on Tuesday night dance nights because although Tuesday dance is my happy place I also just have way too much shit going on right now. (And I have rehearsal on Tuesdays/Thursdays in addition to the regular M/W stuff next week and the week after anyway...)

 

I did cancel my plans with a friend on Thursday night because I realized I needed to schedule down time. Sooo that's a success, right? :D

Chill day two shall be tonight! I am being luxuriously lazy this week because I know this next week is going to SUCK SO BAD. And I also work this weekend which I only ever do once a year. =/ And I have a rehearsal added for Sunday >.<  (in addition to the one I already knew about on Friday.)

 

Schedule next week:

Monday through Friday: rehearsals from 7pm until 10pm ish (plus work all day before.) Saturday off...hopefully! And then rehearsal 7 to 10pm again on Sunday.

 

I am tired just thinking about it. Going to do my damndest to keep that Saturday FREE.

Chill day 2 was a success!

 

I started playing Oblivion again since I have a computer again. YAYS. And thank goodness that Steam keeps track of your saves. I was afraid I was going to have lost my character and have to start over again!  I did have the fun of no longer remembering what the hell I was up to and I slept in order to level and magically became a vampire and was like wtf I don't think I did any vampire killing? But it's been months! Thank goodness for being able to reload a save and remembering you can go poke an altar in a temple and get rid of vampirism before it officially starts.....because for all that it's a cool game mechanic I don't want to have to worry about the sunlight related issues. Nor do I want to work on the questline to de-vampire myself at this juncture.

 

I decided to start working on the Shivering Isles expansion stuff. WHEEEE fun because when I was last playing I was doing a ton of Oblivion gates and I was getting a little tired of killing all teh Daedra all teh time with all the fire and the  brimstone and the fire and the brimstone..... YARGH (This may directly correlate to how much Diablo III I have been playing lately. A girl can only take so much fire and brimstone at once before it becomes tiresome!)

I read this as thumbsup-icorn... as in a unicorn with a thumbs up instead of a horn. or something.

 

ME TOO. And you know how I feel about all things unicorn. :D!!!! lololol

 

In other news...totally tempted to wear my dinosaur pajamas to our recruitment event tomorrow since you know EARTH SCIENCE and we have a dinosaurs class...but I think I probably shouldn't. Lololol. (Trying to find a way to sneak a dinosaur onto our table display! Dinos and rocks....!)

I can't believe I haven't found your challenge before now! I love the goals, chill time is super important when life is crazy. Nice job fitting it in.

 

And I think dino pj's are a proper attire choice for all events!
