Stealthstitcher Concludes the Madness


Recommended Posts

Not gonna lie, I'm not feeling it this morning. Any of it. When my alarm went off I literally said, "No!" and rolled over. Then I rolled back over and got up cause I had a meeting ... 

Anyway, another challenge starting off with a week of madness. It seems to be a theme. Last challenge I had The Big Musical - this time it's The Goth Punk Surfer Opera (just the way Mozart imagined it, I'm sure). 

Week 1: The focus will be on healthful eating under my calorie goal of 1600 a day, and tracking it. I got lazy on the tracking at the end of the last challenge. Exercise is going to have to go by the wayside, although I will be walking to and from a super far away parking lot and also lots of up and down stairs while working the opera. I will, however, do my mobility/flexibility routine five times this week. 

Week 2: Will still be mildly crazy, as I switch to the ballet. However, I should have a smidge more time so I'm going to add half hour walks back in. And one, count 'em, one strength training workout. Just one. 

Week 3: The ballet continues. This week I will aim for two strength training workouts in addition to other things.

Week 4: I will be off work. I WILL BE OFF WORK!!! Is this even possible? Do such things happen? Fitness goals this week - add a third strength training session, and also go walk some trails in the woods!

Whoot whoot! You got this! 

It's awesome how you are able to run in the swing of things! Even with the pure chaos... That's just awesome. 

 

Hope your week started well! (or at least a good comeback after the morning)

As you may have guessed, I once again underestimated how crazy a 90 hour work week is. So, nothing happened last week in terms of goals. I know I shouldn't complain about having so many job opportunities, but I am really tired of working. 

Anyway, it's a new week - it'll still probably be a 70-80 hour week but I'll try again. My goals for this week were to keep calories under 1600 (I can do it, I just have to not give up and eat out.), walk for 30 minutes a day, and do one strength training workout. I feel like I should be able to do that much. I really do need to get up and move around after all the sewing.

Aw, thanks guys! 

Yesterday was a rough one. The weather was lousy, I overslept, and my schedule was tighter than anticipated. I ended up not packing meals because I woke up too late, which is not the end of the world - there are reasonable options not too far away. I opted for less reasonable options, though - let the hungry and cranky get to me. No walk happened, except for to and from the car in parking lots. 

Today I'm more on track, but not any less cranky. I'm not quite the point where I was last summer, where I was seriously considering faking my own death to get out of responsibilities (apparently it's illegal; go figure) but I'm really burnt out and still have two weeks to go. I'm so stiff and sore from all the sitting and sewing, my last job assures me the check is in the mail but it's been several days and I haven't seen it, and I just want to sleep, or cry, or sleep cry ... 

Anyway, I'll live but I've got a lot of hours yet to work between here and rest.

You guys are the best!

I feel kind of bad for not being very present on here lately and checking in with others, but it's all just crazy times in my world. I just finished creating striped fabric by sewing satin ribbon onto stretch velvet ... just buy striped fabric, crazy ballet people.

As regards challenge - well, I'm eating reasonably healthfully most days, I did walk four times, and that's pretty much it. My end date before I get a break moved to next Tuesday ... I feel like somebody trying to get out of the criminal underworld who keeps taking "one last job". Except less crime and more sewing.

Our world would be so much cooler if the criminal underworld was just a bunch of tattoo'd gang-bangers sitting around sewing machines..... 

 

Glad to hear you are hanging in there! Update us when you can, but surviving is most important!

Eating healthy and walking? Sounds like a win to me.
