Everanything Preps for Camp


Merrin

Recommended Posts

There's a month and some change before camp, so that must mean I'm going to bust my ass and get into totally perfect shape just in time! Right? Nope. Not in the least. I know now that physical and mental wellness are the summation of several choices. I need to continue making those good choices to keep me healthy, fit, and pumped up for camp. Some of the challenge/goal titles may seem a little weird, but they all work as clever reminders to keep me on track.

 

Love is to Eat Anything Fluffy: Cook/assemble food 1x per day. Log all food into phone.

Don't Be Clawhauser: Limit sweet snacks to 2 per day. Increase water and tea intake.

 

Go for Walkies: loops on the parking garage for work days; loops at the park on off days.

Bees? Complete Darebees when possible, attempt extra credit. Include with daily stretches.

+Back Up Tigers: dance party.

+Venus: heavy bag, house/yard work.

 

Mirror Mirror: daily skin care + masks.

Hush: minimum half hour quiet time before bed. Reading, coloring, meditation, chores.

DatDA: class work as needed.

+Haruka: weekly free/errand ride.

 

Kissing Town: once weekly fun times with Ifrit.

 

With the bonus activities, and with trying to reach a bronze level for Darebees, I am considering some sort of prize system. Trouble is, I've been on a minimalist kick again lately, so I need to think hard on some non-clutter-y, and probably also not food-based, rewards. I kinda want some fancy new leggings for camp. I also want a slackline. I could go back to the springs by myself for a day. Plus now that my nights off changed I could go to a lot more concerts here soon.

 

UPDATE! New Prize System!

 

Bees Bronze = 1 prize. Bees Silver = 1 prize. Etc+ 20 pts 1 prize. Etc+ 30 pts 1 prize. Etc+ 40 pts 1 prize.

By not checking my ingredients before I began and having to put almond flour in with flax seed. They came out just fine, but totally by accident.

Aaand my work computer decided to eat my update from last night without me knowing.

 

Tuesday: LEAF, Clawhauser, Walkies, Tigers, Mirror, Kissing Town, Bees (pulse ups). Ifrit and I went to the park for pokemon, I scared myself swinging too high on a disk swing, and realized that they put in a new rope dome thing which I want to go hang off of and stuff. I also practiced on my glow poi and only hit myself twice.

 

Wednesday: LEAF, Clawhauser, Walkies (2 laps work), Bees (leg flutters EC). Got to bed late because I had to go deal with a shop double-charging me, and then insisting I prove so in order for them to refund me. I will have to cancel my card and have it charged back for fraud, to be safe. Eh. This really just pushes me to get to the bank tomorrow and get a few things sorted.

I like having 'experience' rewards instead of physical things! :)

After working out the kinks from Week Zero, I'll be tracking my day from when I wake up to when I sleep. So, my Saturday started at 2 pm today and will end at 8am 'tomorrow'/Sunday. Depending on what they are, I'll log Bees for the corresponding day at either the beginning or end of my schedule day. This also makes food tracking hard, because my phone reverts to a new day at midnight. I'm mostly using it to keep an eye on carbs and overall calories, but it's still a bit faulty as a system.

 

TLDR working graves complicates things.

LEAF: leftover muffin and fruit for lunch.

Clawhauser: snack when I got home.

Walkies: several loops garage. (I'm guessing six because that's how many Pokemon I caught..)

Mirror Mirror: spots.

Hush: house chores and crafts. 

Bees: Extended swings with EC.

DatDA: several hours of work done for the class outline/lecture. I've got Ifrit on backup to help cut up fabric for lots of starter sewing kits.

Bees: five minute punches EC.

Walkies: across the culvert for the Pokestop, up the hill and back.

Tigers: several dance parties while Ifrit was catching Pokémon.

Kissing Town: shooting range. I did well for only my second time with the rifle. The kick from the butt still leaves my pec bruised. I'm getting better about lactic build-up, because the four clips I did with the .40 didn't tire me out nearly as bad. My grouping also got way cleaner.

Mirror Mirror: spot check.

 

Having a solid overnight off with Ifrit has proven to be really good for us. We go to the park based on his spoon level for the night. We sit out in the yard and talk over the fire. He cleans guns while I work on cosplay. We've been very happy little introverts lately.

I need one of those coffee cups with the 'warning level' designs. I was still waking up, trying to cook lunch for tonight, and before I'd even microwaved a cup, Ifrit was telling me about Rose coming over with the dog. "Mmhm. K." I go back to my food prep. Rose bursts in the door not two minutes later. "Hey do you want some of my milkshake?" "Nn? Un. No." Back to food prep. "Hey whatcha makin?" It's really just boring keto food, sausage and broccoli into a pan to be baked. "Um. Lunch. For work." "Oh okay!" I go to put it into the oven, and retrieve a glass for my protein shake. "Hey we're gonna go outside you wanna come?"

 

I'm done. Ifrit knows I just woke up. I had no idea Rose was coming over today. I am still in my pajamas. "Okay, I actually just woke up, can everybody please stop talking to me?"

 

And they do. Ifrit tries to ask me a few minutes later if I want to come downstairs and hang out. "No. I need to sew, like I said yesterday." He looks sort of...crestfallen? It's not the right word, but it's the word I've got right now.

 

I immediately feel like an asshole. I also immediately feel panic. Living with EH taught me that unless my emotions and reactions were contained and polite, I could expect yelling, name calling, possibly an attempt to sabotage my work time. None of these things happen. Ifrit texts me that he's gonna be on the heavy bag for a while. I go down to say hi before I get dressed for work. (I also perv as he's shirtless and I like boxing.) "Hey. I'm sorry I sounded like an asshole." He shrugs. "It happens."

 

It's really clear he's not mad, and we both know I'm more keyed up than necessary from expecting a negative reaction. I called to make sure he was up for work, and he wasn't terse or anything.

 

I'm still learning what it feels like to establish my own house rules. Ie if I'm in the middle of something, I really hate to be bothered. Or if I've just woken up, I really need time to become alert and be able to engage with people. And also to be reminded with something visual/tactile (text or sticky) when we're expecting people. And that I still have really depressing reaction patterns when I judge myself to have acted inappropriately. Which wasn't the case at all.

It takes time to heal from a toxic relationship, I've been completely out of mine for a year and I'm still having to remind myself from time to time that I don't need to follow the patterns I used for survival when I was in it. Be gentle with yourself and patient as well. You got this.
