Nymeria: temporary Headmistress of Hogwarts


Nymeria

Recommended Posts

A month ago, I was planning on hitting the parkour training really hard.  Instead, while working on rail walking pivots, I took a hard fall and dislocated my elbow.  Thankfully, rehab is going really well, and I should be cleared for everything quite soon. :)  Since this challenge will be a whirlwind of working on schooling related stuff with the kids, rehabbing my elbow, taking a 1.5 week vacation, and otherwise trying to stay in shape, I'm incorporating all of that into this challenge.

Goal 1: Charms, Transfiguration, Potions, and other schoolwork -

latest?cb=20140308220622

I've now had 2.5 weeks of working with the kids on some piano, typing, writing, reading, and math (yeah, summer vacation starts really late here).  It's going well, but it's more work than I expected it to be.  So, the goal is to stay on top of this, and don't be half-assed with my prep.  I'm just going to stick with nebulous grading for this one, but I'm happy to have the reminder to try to do my best.

 

Goal 2: Care of Magical Creatures - 

latest?cb=20130128211103

I've had very little luck getting the kids to join me on long walks.... until we downloaded Pokemon Go. ;)  The goal is to capture and train wild pokemons by doing at least 4 family pokemon hunting walks each week.  

 

Goal 3: The Hospital Ward -

I'm still rehabbing the dislocated elbow.  At the moment, I'm at full strength and nearly full ROM, but the last few degrees toward extension and maybe last 10 toward full flexion are still painful.  The goal is to do my PT every day, even while on vacation.  Also, while my elbows won't be able to take the strain of pull ups for awhile, I'll instead go for a lower-strain, higher-volume approach by doing at least 2 sessions/week of high-volume band-assisted pull ups and incline push ups, and at least 2 yoga sessions/week.

 

Goal 4: Use the Marauder's Map for some exploration -

This one is simple.  I'm taking a 1.5 week vacation right at the beginning of the challenge.  I'm going to try my hardest to just relax, enjoy the vacation, go off the beaten path a bit, be patient when the kids inevitably get whiny or demanding, and avoid spending too much time on my phone.  Yay!  More nebulous grading standards. ;) 

 

I'm still expecting to do my usual parkour classes over the next month, return to my normal yoga class, go swimming a lot, go climbing, and other fun things!  But, until I know where I am with the elbow rehab, I'll have to wait on the parkour-specific goals.

my little dudes are older than your kids, but we had ZERO luck getting them out of the car at rest areas on our recent xcountry drive until pokemon go came out and then they were practically leaping out of the car! so, for that alone, I am grateful. and for it to be so awesome at the same time welllls. so excellent.

Love this goal! Especially since you're being limited with the elbow and Pokemon Go = Family Time!

Don't sell yourself short, Harrgath, he may be slightly more muscly but he is NOT cooler. Not even by a long shot.

At least I'm taller and, at least according to my Coach who has completed at CrossFit Regionals alongside Mr. Parker for several years now, much less weird.  Although I've always taken 'weird' to be the highest of compliments when given from someone 'normal.'

 

I think I like Lucas' brand of weird.  :P

Today ended up being a big load of nothing.  I was planning on doing yoga and a Pokemon hunt, but I got so wrapped up with packing that nothing has happened.  I feel kind of lame for making a challenge thread, only to disappear for the next 1.5 weeks.  But right after PT tomorrow morning, we're hitting the road.  I'm also kind of annoyed that we're heading north, but it still looks like it's going to be hot as ass up there.

Awesome!!!  Climbing up the big troll thing was a nice touch, but she needs more parkour. ;)

No lameness allowed.  I did the same thing last month.  I'll be happy to keep your challenge thread alive with memes and other fun stuff.  ;)

My house seems to be a Pokemon hotbed.  I caught at least 3 ratatas indoors yesterday, and a bulbasaur was infesting my toilet.  

 

Pokemon go is making my road trip a bit more fun.  Nearly every rest stop was also a poke stop, and a few had active lures. I'm a little pissed that my eevee evolved into a flareon and not a Jolteon. I hope pokemons enjoy hanging out at historical sites, so I can cash in over the next few days. I also hope I can find some team instinct gyms. 

 

I I hate typing on my phone, so updates will be sparse for awhile.

Today, we had a LOT of walking planned, and I was hoping to distract the kids and prevent whining by hunting Pokemon along the way....  So, of course the servers crashed for half of the day. ;).  I still caught a lot and am close to level 12. I wonder if there will be any Pokemon or poke stops at the campsite tomorrow.  At the very least, I can use some hiking to hatch eggs.
