Darkfoxx 35: The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same


darkfoxx

Recommended Posts

If this past year has taught me nothing, it's that the more things change the more they stay the same. As we start this next Cycle, I find myself *still* struggling to get back on track fitness-wise and *still* learning to adapt to having a wildly variable schedule. You'd think by now I'd have figured this shit out :) 

 

On the workout front, I think my issue stems from a: not having a set schedule, and b: not having a "real" (i.e. specific date or cash related) goal in mind. When I was in training for 90-gillion races and mud runs and had a set time to work out that was immovable, I did great. When I have zero idea what I'll be doing at 5pm and way less expendable income, focusing becomes an issue. Plus: motivation. If I'm honest with myself, I really suck at keeping motivated when I either don't see any progress or can't keep focused long enough to reap any rewards. Incremental change that amounts to banging my head against a wall is also a surefire ticket to abandoning my fitness goals town. 

 

What has worked best in the past is having a video-related program to follow that involved half an hour or under a day (I'm thinking the HasFit HIIT-style programs), in-person yoga classes, mini-challenges and accountability.

 

Methinks I need to get back to some or all of that. I just need to figure out what path to set down. And there's that shiny new gym with shiny new fitness equipment ... 

 

Goal 1, unsurprisingly, is yet again to work out. I'm still nebulous on frequency, or what to do - we'll start this challenge with a 'just do some shit per week' plan and settle on a concrete battle plan by the end. 

 

Goal 2 - shocker - macros. I'm sticking with mostly keto because that's working for me, but I'll allow 1 variance per week as a carb up meal. 

 

Goal 3 - still - to get a damn job. I'm beyond unthrilled that this is still a goal. But, since it's still something that needs to happen - I still need to work at it every damn day, so it's staying as a goal. 

 

Goal 4 - figure out my 'new normal' and try to freak out less about it. My fridge is tiny, my freezer is even smaller, my stove is doll-sized and won't get but so hot, and my pantry has shrunk by half. Also, it now takes me an hour and a damn half to get anywhere, my grocery stores are a pain in the ass to get to, and the car is trying its damnedest to present itself as an easy solution. 

 

I need to put my big girl undies on, quit crying about it on the train, and deal. I'll be fine and this is not the end of the world. It's not like I don't even still live in NYC - I do; just not in my borough and not with the type of lifestyle I wanted being as convenient. I need to be more resilient here. It'll build character. ;) 

 

Ok, done whining. Commencing with the thing.

Haha first in!

 

I hear you with the flagging motivation. But Steve would tell you that you can't rely on motivation to get shit done anyways. We needs the discipline...

 

But yay for shiny new gym stuff! Go have fun in your new playground!

 

I know the job hunt is dragging on you... I really hope it resolves soon, but in the meantime I'm proud of the TA and the free company stuff you've been doing.

 

Get your sweat on, and it will leak energy and good vibes into other areas. I promise. :)

Who has the "figuring it all out with a variable schedule" figured out?  If you find that person, lets nominate then as our supreme leader???  You actually do a great job of getting it all figured out and rolling with the craziness.  You will figure out the new apartment stuff soon.  ;)

Thx, guys!

 

I'm figuring it out.

 

Re: the new space: new rule - no going robbed with dishes in the sink. I did the other night ago, and was down to the bowls I like least to eat breakfast out of. So: fill that tiny dishwasher unless I get home later than everyone else is up, in which case don't leave the house with dishes in the sink.

@EricMN: I'm vaguely worried about death and/or dismemberment.

 

I guess that means 'bring it!'

All kidding aside, I'd appreciate any kick in the ass and ideas you'd be willing to provide.

Yesterday

 

Goal 1: Work Out

 

Nope. DOMS day 1. Moving with the mob to catch the ferry is hard when you're limpy.

 

Moving at the pace of the crowd down subway steps is fine.

 

Moving down the hall in the herd is difficult.

 

Goal 2: Macros

 

Breakfast: No-atmeal & coffee

Lunch: Leftover chicken casserole

Dinner: 2 hot Italian sausages with mustard

Train Snack: Wild purse jerky bar

Waiting for the Ferry Snack: Sesame oil seaweed snacks

 

Successfully avoided beer & wine while out

 

Goal 3: Get A Job

 

Went to a panel discussion on mentorship and networking. There was some pretty good conversation, and some good info shared.

 

Ended up talking to a panelist and an audience member about North Carolina (panelist went to Davidson and Wake Forest; audience member went to Duke).

 

Also talked to another audience member about General Assembly (the event was at GA) and living in Staten Island - he was excited to see someone else from SI there. We may end up getting coffee.

 

2.5 hours of copywriting.

Did my daily CSS.

Applied for 2 jobs.

Ordered new pants so maybe I'll be up to 2 pairs of pants that actually fit.

 

Goal 4: Figure My Shit Out

 

Decided to not leave dishes overnight.

Came home to the second bed curtain being hung, so I need to hem those soon. I'm sure it's a terrible idea, but I think I'll try hemming in situ. I'm thinking of pinning the curtains and then using washai tape to keep the bottoms clean & reinforce the hem.

If you are just doing a quick whip stitch, hemming them in place sounds like a solid plan.  I can't imagine that you have a sewing machine tucked away somewhere in your tiny apartment.  ;) You have the skills, it will just take time.

@Terra: I do actually still have my sewing machine, but nowhere to really spread out and use it that would be large enough to accommodate 9 ft long curtains.

 

You're right, though - I could totally whip stitch it.

 

Still liking my washi tape idea - just need to pick the color. I'm thinking copper would be really cool - or I could dupe the fake chair rail I had at the old place and go for chevrons & teal.

 

Choices!

@EricMN: lols

Yesterday

 

Goal 1: Work Out

 

Nope. Hobbled around the apartment and whined a bunch. Felt fragile and dried out.

 

Goal 2: Macros

 

Breakfast: No-atmeal & coffee

Lunch: Chicken bacon casserole

Dinner: Barbacoa with cauliflower purée and smoked olive oil - which kind of tastes good but kind of tastes like cancer, so I'm not sure it was a wise impulse purchase

 

Goal 3: Get A Job

 

Scheduled a coffee with someone who may have freelance work for me. I met her at a networking event this late summer. Boom.

 

Did my daily CSS and it s-u-c-k-e-d. So fuggs I didn't tweet it at the sponsors.

 

Copywriting.

 

Applied for 10 jobs.

 

Goal 4: Figure My Shit Out

 

Almost killed hubby when he suggested I start looking for jobs not in NYC (like Jersey) and that I could get a car. I know. He's trying to help. He has zero idea how hard it is to hold my shit together as it is. He didn't mean to be an insensitive ass. Again. For the zillionth time.

 

Did not go to bed with dishes in the sink; the DH commented on how dishes are easier to find now that someone (him) doesn't leave them in the living room.

 

Did not fold the living room blankets before bed, but I did tidy my desk area before calling it quits for the day and made sure my water jar was in place.

 

Now if only I can extend all this tidying to at least half-assedly making the bed ...

Yesterday

 

Goal 1: Work Out

 

Nope. I do, however, now know what I'm doing next week - thanks to a certain badass Jedi Master.

 

Monday: Hoping for yoga

Tuesday: Jedi track

Wednesday: Rest

Thursday: Jedi track

Friday: Traveling and lots of bus sitting + then walking in probably heels and doing hella uncomfortable shit all night - I need to find my lacrosse ball

Saturday: More bus sitting; hopefully strolling around D.C. For a couple hours in not-heels

Sunday: Zero things

 

Goal 2: Macros

 

Breakfast: Faux-rina & coffee

Lunch: Chicken casserole

Dinner: Barbacoa burrito & broccoli slaw

Snack: Lemon Keto whipped jello thing + 2 sesame cookies

Fri-Yay Treat: 1/2 glass of way too sweet prosecco before succumbing to diabetes and punking out

 

Goal 3: Get A Job

 

Heard from the negger - told him I was too damn busy to bother with his shit, and that I can brush up on my Angular - on my time.

 

What happened, did no one want to put up with this guys' bs? He said I sucked and wasn't good enough .... all of a sudden I am?

 

Dick.

 

Drew a space sloth for my daily CSS challenge

 

Had a screener for a job that sounds horrible but is at least tech-adjacent. It kind of sounds like customer service - which is something I am hella uncomfortable with, shitty at, and generally hate. Why did I apply, again? (calculated confidence-booster that's why) Hoping this one goes nowhere.

 

I think that was it.

 

Goal 4: Figure My Shit Out

 

Dishes were put up

Blankets were folded

Bed was half-assedly made

Desk was tidied

 

This weekend: hem the bed curtains

 

Ooh. And I now have a craft project; just need to get the rest of the supplies and decide whether I want to do all 1 type or two and how large I want the scope to creep - it's a gift. I'm hoping to start on the bus next Friday.

Because I basically only think in songs, your challenge title spurned this advice:

 

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favorite song, just go ahead let your hair down...you're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

 

 

I really feel you on the getting the act together thing. I have struggled and struggled since my streak broke after camp. We CAN do this!

@Sloth the Enduring: Boy, has he. I think this is puppers' favorite apartment ever.

 

He now runs down the hall to go outside, is reluctant to come in from the "park", and even exerts a modicum of independence while in the house by sometimes choosing to sleep on his bed instead of cuddle on the couch.

 

That, and he has *two* fluffy bath mats he likes to boss around and redecorate with - he stacks them for an opulent place to nap often, then drags the little one into the kitchen while we're gone.

 

He's a weirdo, but it seems to make him happy.

@Haikoo: We can and we will!

@Big_Show: It did! That guy is terrible and I'm not playing into his BS - no matter *how* much I want a j-o-b.

 

@Tanktimus the Encourager: Thanks! I have had enough of BS :)

Yesterday

 

Goal 1: Work Out

 

Nope. Did house stuff, walked to the grocery store, and went triple store shopping in the evening.

 

Goal 2: Macros

 

Breakfast: Faux-Rina & coffee

Lunch: 2 hot Italian sausage links & peppers + onions

Dinner: Delivery from a pizza/Italian place. I had chicken scampi with broccoli instead of noodles.

Snack: Quest makes a peanut butter cup. It's semi-satisfying.

 

Goal 3: Get A Job

 

Weekend!

 

Goal 4: Get Your Shit Together

 

New pants came in and they can stay. Got the dress pant yoga pants from Betabrand and they're comfortable, fit well (hoping the length shrinks an inch - they're great with heels; a little bunchy without), and they don't make my butt look terrible.

 

Dishes were put up.

Blankets were folded.

Living room was picked up despite the DH's efforts to the contrary.

There was a pizza box and fry pan we're tossing left on the counter, but they're leaving today - with the trash that is now full & the recycling.

Glad to hear the doggo is adjusting well to the move, he must be a Staten Islander at heart.

@Tanktimus the Encourager: I think he is. 'Burbs + non-threatening ocean (I.e. no beach with scary waves) is something he is digging.

 

And the new dog friends he's only vaguely interested in getting to know - from afar. :)

Yesterday

 

Goal 1: Work Out

 

It was finally non-arctic enough for a walk. Took the ferry to Battery Park & walked up the park on the left side of the island to this mall with a great food court, then walked through the new warren of shopping options around Ground Zero - showed the DH the new oculus everyone is shooting for Instagram, and ended up at Eataly to grab some of our favorite burger patties.

 

All in all, a good day.

 

And we saw this:

In honor of either the Manhattan Half or the beautiful sun.

 

This is the oculus:

 

Not to be confused with the one at 1 World Trade Center Plaza.

 

Apparently, downtown likes the term 'oculus'.

 

Goal 2: Macros

 

Some win going on here today - spent a bunch of time fighting cravings for bad shit.

 

Breakfast: Some form of bar & coffee

Snack: Grande misto with almond milk

Lunch: Skipped

Snack: Half a snack bag of Quest chips

Dinner: Aged beef patty, raw milk cheese & green beans cooked in sausage fat & butter

 

Goal 3: Get A Job

 

No work here; finally told the DH I got picked up for the April class.

 

Goal 4: GYST

 

Bed half-assembly made

Blankets up

Kitchen cleaned

Laundry half done

Recycling & trash thrown out

Pizza boxes thrown out

Old pan thrown out

Got the DH to put his water bottle up under his own steam

 

Did not hem the curtains
