Twilight: I'm ready for the fight and fate


Twilight

Recommended Posts

I had a pretty great challenge last round! I've made really great progress on getting good sleep on a regular basis. I'm stretching fairly regularly. I have an art project in mind and a due date (a gift for my parents' 40th anniversary in April). I have specific exercises I want to add back into my daily routine (i.e. desk pushups). So this challenge's goals are identical to the last one! I will keep logging in my paper logbook, and report my numbers on a weekly basis.

 

Goals

  1. Sleep more than 7 hours 7x per week
  2. Stretch 3x per week
  3. Make art 1x per week
  4. Try something new/old each week (lift, swim, sledgehammer, run (UGH), etc)

Hey all! I've been sick for a week, and am finally just starting to feel better. So yeah, goals have been on hold.

 

New fitness goal deadline: strengthen my core in time for the rope intensive weekend in three weeks! Hellooo planks. Just gotta be careful to not overdo it as I recover from this cold.

I'll share, yes. I do post performance art stuff, too. :) I've been doing a lot of thinking over the last year or so on art, value, and just going for it, so one of my goals is to start producing more stuff.

What is it with everyone getting sick the last few weeks? Change of seasons?

 

Glad you're better. I'm working on my core too.

 

I was looking at climbing rope on Amazon -- I want to be learn to climb a rope. I noticed that one kind mentioned in the item description that it's suitable for bondage play.

I think rope for bondage play is too thin too be comfortable to climb. There are specific ropes for gym climbing that would be more suitable. Those tend to be a lot thicker, non-elastic, but also quite rough. You could also consider buying aerial rope/corde lisse as it's much nicer to hold. It's a bit different though as it has more give to it. Don't know about cost, but I can imagine it's more expensive so might not be worth it.

It'll be interesting to see what you come up with for the 40th anniversary gift for your parents!

My husband and I exchange gifts based on the traditional gift and see how creative we can get with it.  Like last year was 22 years and the traditional gift for 22 is copper.  I ordered us "copper" silicone wedding bands because we are both very active and regular wedding bands can be a pain.  He got me a really cool copper water bottle.

 

FYI:  40th is ruby...

I'm feeling some classic assassin "SHINY!" and am now getting ready to rededicate myself to core work as well.

I go for social justice druid/rogue - don't mess with my trees or beasties, and people treating each other like crap tends to irritate me as well.

 

Glad your feeling better.

Hey all! I've been sick since my birthday on the 15th - BOO. I'm still not 100%, but I'm in the office today. Needless to say, my plans have been altered. I've been doing a decent job at stretching fairly regularly, but have not been up for planks, and my sleep has been terrible. I'm getting my materials together for my art project though, so that's good. Doing a lot of resting. It's just a cold, but it's a doozy.

I blame my gf for bringing a cold back from her vacation in Florida.

 

You can use all kinds of things for bondage, but do be careful if you're planning on having it hold your weight - that takes rope that's intended to be load bearing. :)

It depends but yeah, you probably want much thicker rope if you're going to climb it.

I have a friend (my tattoo artist) who used to be way deep into the kink scene. He refers to objects that are not intended for BDSM but can be used for such as "pervertables." E.g.: "That electric fly swatter would make a great pervertable." "I was in the pervertable aisle at Home Depot when..."

I'm sad because the Pokemon Go updates seem to get pushed to my device late, so while I've been seeing lots of water Pokemon, I haven't seen any shinies yet. :(

 

Standing at my desk, doing calf raises and stretching and inclined push ups! Yoga at lunch today. I've been bad about updating my log book. I need to make a new one. And dancing, too! Add me on Spotify! (I'm definitely feeling better!!)

 

Dancing to this: 

 

The hot dog vendor is back now that it's spring. I'm gonna get a hot dog for lunch. :D

I'm getting an earworm and 1993 (?) club flashbacks just looking at that track list.
