ChrisWithaStick Posted August 22, 2016 Report Share Posted August 22, 2016 Howdy Y'all! This has been in many ways the summer of slack, not the least of which not participating in challenges, or commenting much on forums. It's been pretty status quo in terms of health and habits, so still some things to clean up, and some habits to get back into. Hence the reboot. Nothing fancy this time around, and, apologies to Sarakingdom, no planned Pratchett quotes (although I may have to find my inner Vimes at some point). So - Sleep: Get out of bed when I wake up. If it's before my alarm (damn you, summer sunrise!), tough noogies. Start winding down at 9, in bed by 11 at the latest most nights. BTW's - sleep masks are at times useful. I discovered that this summer since I don't have black-out curtains, and there are bright street lights on my street (bedroom on the street side of the house). Suburi: Do it in the am. Wake up, pick up a weapon, swing it. Repeat. Use kata as suburi formats, working on smoothing out. Contact a couple of different locations about setting up a class. (this might be deferred 'til later in the fall). Stress: This is a biggie at the moment. There's some transition at work - we're reviewing and updating a lot of training materials, handbooks, etc., and developing some roles to create better consistency between three shops (two right now, a third will come online in the spring next year). On the plus side, I'm working with a lot of great people. Still. Stress. There's also some transitional stuff going on in my personal life, which isn't necessarily helping (as transitions are want to do). So... Stretch, daily. - Nothing radical, but I tend to tense and shrink in when stressed. Stretching counters that. Go for a walk. See sleep and suburi Food: Get back into the habit of cooking good food at home. Speaking of - anyone have any good recipes for grilled veggies? The next two weeks are supposed to be hot (actually hot - mid 90s), and I'd like to a) have some veggies, b), not heat my kitchen (no A/C). Anything with zucchini is a no, because I can't stand the taste of it (makes me gag, seriously - I don't know why, just can't stand it). Dance: Start up lessons again (especially a group class, since they are a little cheaper) Go to actual social dances. So, again, no goals per se, but working on habits and routines. Seems like a good way to cap off the summer and head into fall. Quote Human | Plays with Sticks | Monkish Leanings | Rangerish Overtones Occasionally Updated Facebook Link to comment
