YOU ARE F*ING RADIANT. I know so well how the up/down goes, and I also know I've seen more up from you in the last few months than down, and I think that's huge. I'm constantly trying to tip the scale and have more good days > bad days is a huge win. Also you're fucking radiant. Just completetly utterly marvelous. I'm just. I can't. I'm thrilled to see you so happy!!! :D:D:D

Aw man Darth Vader was so great in Rogue One. Legitimately threatening, force to be reckoned with Sith. Complete with bad puns for Dir. Krennic :P

I have to disagree. I was rather disappointed with the Vader in Rogue One and thought he was scarier in the original trilogy. Maybe that's just me though. I don't know... it was something about his mannerisms... he just didn't feel as menacing to me. Still loved the movie though.

Omg, girl.   Thanks.  :)   It's really been an eye opening thing these past few weeks/months.   I'm not even sure what to attribute the changes to- besides lots of good tips from Master @Tanktimus the Encourager and the support of all my great Nerds, and... just active intent to WORK on the attitude above and beyond the physical side of things.    I know that the Cloud 9 ride may not stick around as a be all end all, but the changes are going to stick, and even when the highs aren't SO high, they're going to be much higher than they were a year ago!

Somewhat late to the party, but I agree with everyone that you look so happy and content in those pictures, which is great to see!

 

I think I'm with Oramac on the Star Wars debate, this was me as a child (not really, but practically):

 

 

But I could be convinced to go grey, 'cuz really, once I acquired all those Sith powers, I'd only use them for good.

 

OMG!  That girl!    Not only is she amaze for choosing to go Dark Side, but that kneel is spot on perfect.    These are the kinds of vids that tug at the 'you want one' baby strings.   (Thankfully the moment passes fast!)

Lol yes this is me as a child. I had huge "hero worship" for Darth Vader as a youngling. Though nowadays I'm super Light Side. I can't even be a mean person in video games :(

I can't be mean in video games either, at least to the good or innocent characters, but I'm quite happy to eliminate every raider or bandit I can find. My characters are always terrifying forces for good. And when you get right down to it, I'm 36 years old and I still have huge hero worship of Darth Vader (rekindled by the most amazing scene at the end of Rogue One, the first thing I said to my brother after coming out of that movie was, if the force was real, I'd so be a Sith)

 

Hahah, this is like me too!   Bioware games?   I just can't be mean.  Sometimes I can be firm and authoritative, but not mean or cruel.   The closest dance I had to being not nice, was a short stint in a D&D game where my greedy thief was cursed to be chaotic evil for a while.   But mostly, it just made her greed and self love SUPER CHARGED.

 

Also -I love NF so much.   Where statements like "I'm 36 years old and still have a huge hero worship of Darth Vader" shine like beacons of 'OMG ME TOO!'

Heeey Red!   Don't make me tag you next time!   Don't want you missing out on all the fun.    Yus... anime!  Speaking of.   Almost done with K Project (first season) and half way through 1st season of Bungo Stray Dogs.  Got any recommendations?

THURSDAY RECAP STUFF

 

Food - Tracked and within range.  (Ate 1918 / Burned 2414)

Activity - Did a lunch run, but legs were tired and breath was ragged, ran/walk intervals for 3.5 miles.

Bujo & Night Routine - Done and done!

Affirmation - Yup, morning stuff written.

Art - Sketched at work between calls, working on another Kessa pic - trying to practice more expression/face stuff.   Once I get it into the software, I'll be messing with different eyes and mouth and stuff, to try and get a serious/intent expression.           This one is her about to take on a contract for assassination.

D&D went well, we completed two more of the arena challenges.   I was rolling terribly though and people seemed easily distracted with stories of non-D&D stuff.    Ah well, sometimes that happens.   We also reached level 6!   So I will now be Level 4 Assassin/2 Ranger and get to pick up my fighting style (two weapon wielder) and spells.   (Hunters Mark and Cure Light wounds.)   Which reminds me, I need to reprint my character sheet!

 

Today is a beautiful sunny day, high of 87.    So... I am going to engage in one of my first "BOLD" actions.   *gulp*  I shall tell you about it on the recap of today, which should come later tonight!   Also need to cut the grass, and get some art in.   Tomorrow the roomies return from vacation, so my week of playing adult homeowner is coming to an end.  Sadness.   Makes me really jones for a house of my own... I should put that back into the thought process at some point.

My groups have a house rule that we get 1 reroll for the night... but that doesn't save a night of bad rolls... ugh. Hope you didn't botch too bad! 

 

I have 2 new people wanting to join my game... I'm like... wow... ok... let's see if I can help more newbies! 

 

My groups get distracted SO much... it's something that at first my newbies were concerned about, but they're finding out that gaming is not a 'quick' thing. It takes a long time. As long as everyone is having fun, that's what matters!

A BOLD action? Oh, I'm interested! Please definitely let us know how it goes (whatever it is)! You got this, girl! Remember that the Force will guide you! Hehe. 

 

It's nice having a house to yourself sometimes. There are days I get frustrated with my husband being such a homebody because I really want some time by myself. I'm glad you were able to enjoy it while it lasted!

Friday Final Recap

 

Food - Tracked and within range.  (Will end up with about 2000 consumed vs 2500 burned.)

Activity - Puck loves summer.   Puck chose to ride bike instead of lift because she can.   10.5 miles in 50 minutes.  Puck hauled ass.

Bujo & Night Routine - Done and done!

Affirmation - Yup, morning stuff written.

Art - I was not art-floony, but I sat down and inked the sketch I did yesterday.    I am very pleased with how the mask came out, and added the detail of the stylized III on the top left.    She is the third born in her family- though that is unknown to her.    The organization, whether out of spite or genuine recognizance, gave her that identifying code name and symbol for use when contracts were to be drawn.
 

 

q4k12Rj.jpg

 

Beyond the Boundary - I may end up counting this one as a warm-up.   It is DEFINITELY beyond my comfort zone.   And it was terrifying to do it.   And it goes hand in hand with Puck Love, Bold Edition   But on today's bike ride at lunch... given that it was 87 degrees and I really want to get some more sun on my back...

 

...

 

 

...

 

 

I took off my shirt and wore just my brightly colored, swim suit looking, sports bra.    I then proceeded to ride 10.5 miles, not on some hidden path, but on major roads and bike trails completely exposing my whiter than snow mid-torso, lol!    The mantra I used while jumping these hurdles?   "Pfft!  This is 40 years of hard work, life-loving, adventure-having, butt kicking bad-assery I am exposing right now.   F'em all who'd say otherwise!"

tB7vAnNm.jpg

 

And... I almost didn't share the pic.   But I thought... sure, it's one step to say I did it.  It's another to prove I did, and share with people that (if I were speaking honestly) I often try to show only the best sides of myself.    But this is Puck au Naturale!   And if I am going to really take the leap into loving every bit about that girl, then I have to love EVERY picture of myself.

 

Okay!

Ahem.

Right then.

 

Laundry is getting folded, then I'll play about an hour of Andromeda, eat a PB&J and then watch the last two episodes of K Project.   Will be out all day tomorrow celebrating my nephew's b-day.      Might not get any good exercise in.  Might have to do some bodyweight stuff at the party. ;)

Good for you. Again, I'm out of adjectives to effectively convey your growth, and my pride in that growth.

I am so into this. I feel like this is what real body positivity is about. About loving the moment and feeling that wind against your skin and loving the movement and the joy of being in our own skin. PUCK FOR THE WIN!!! Glorious!!!

Saturday Final Recap

 

Food - Damn birthday parties!     Had sushi for lunch, tacos for dinner, cake, pocky and brownies.   Ah well!

Activity - I may have to count my 3 mile walk on Monday as an activity day- because I did nothing today... other than this:

 

Bujo & Night Routine - Done and done!

Affirmation - Yup, morning stuff written.

Art - No art because of the long day celebrating b-days and hugging on nephews and picking up roomies from the airport and... zonk I am tired now.  Art tomorrow!

 

Tomorrow will be a day to kick back and relax a bit then have a hockey game.   So yeah, calories won't be a concern tomorrow.    No way to track today - maybe a super rough calorie estimate, but I'm not sure I want to even bother.    

 

First things first.  Much  needed sleep.

And... I almost didn't share the pic.   But I thought... sure, it's one step to say I did it.  It's another to prove I did, and share with people that (if I were speaking honestly) I often try to show only the best sides of myself.    But this is Puck au Naturale!   And if I am going to really take the leap into loving every bit about that girl, then I have to love EVERY picture of myself.

Good for you. Again, I'm out of adjectives to effectively convey your growth, and my pride in that growth.

 

Yes!  What Tank said.  Seriously, you are a beautiful person Puck!  You're growing so well and helping so many other people too, even if you may not realize it.

That was right after I asked him, "How much do you weigh now?" And he said, "Like 110 I think."     My brother and cousin found my surprise at the added difficulty these days, amusing.  :D

Heeey Red!   Don't make me tag you next time!   Don't want you missing out on all the fun.    Yus... anime!  Speaking of.   Almost done with K Project (first season) and half way through 1st season of Bungo Stray Dogs.  Got any recommendations?

Whaaaa?! I'm sorry, Although being tagged by you would make things... interesting... Well, I just finished Season 1 of Seven Deadly Sins (Netflix only) and it was pretty interesting. In terms of other animes, let's see, I really liked Attack on Titan, and I heard that there's a season 2 already out. Other than that, my anime watching is a bit limited.

 

Also: Your Nephew squats are AWESOME! You make it look so easy, and your pics and comfortability in your own skin, is just wonderful to look at.

Omg omg, I LOOOOVE 7 Deadly Sins.  It's kind of silly and a bit over the top in some aspects, but I really loved the characters and how their pasts lined up and what drove them, and stuff.   I am current on Attack on Titan.    Which is such a polar opposite from 7 Deadly Sins hah.   Looks like I might have to do recommendations for you! :)

Beyond the Boundary - I may end up counting this one as a warm-up.   It is DEFINITELY beyond my comfort zone.   And it was terrifying to do it.   And it goes hand in hand with Puck Love, Bold Edition   But on today's bike ride at lunch... given that it was 87 degrees and I really want to get some more sun on my back...

 

...

 

 

...

 

 

I took off my shirt and wore just my brightly colored, swim suit looking, sports bra.    I then proceeded to ride 10.5 miles, not on some hidden path, but on major roads and bike trails completely exposing my whiter than snow mid-torso, lol!    The mantra I used while jumping these hurdles?   "Pfft!  This is 40 years of hard work, life-loving, adventure-having, butt kicking bad-assery I am exposing right now.   F'em all who'd say otherwise!"

I almost didn't share the pic.   But I thought... sure, it's one step to say I did it.  It's another to prove I did, and share with people that (if I were speaking honestly) I often try to show only the best sides of myself.    But this is Puck au Naturale!   And if I am going to really take the leap into loving every bit about that girl, then I have to love EVERY picture of myself.

 

 

I am loving this Puck Love!!!! You're looking fantastic, chica!!!! Getting some sun, exercising, and looking awesome while doing it! Yeah!!!! ^_^

Food - Damn birthday parties!     Had sushi for lunch, tacos for dinner, cake, pocky and brownies.   Ah well!

 

 

Birthday parties always get in the way of things, don't they? lol. No worries, still doing good in my book!

WEEK 1 IN THE BOOKS!

 

TRAIN LIKE SHIROU

2d6d766edd94c4901aa01d07310a0ce2550ad35c

 

 

ACTIVITY GOALS: 6x / week

By the end of the week, I opted to count my 3 mile walk on Tuesday as an active day instead of a rest day.   (It feels a bit like cheating, but I still reached 2200 calories burned that day!)   This allowed me to count Sat. at the b-day party as my rest day.   It was just lots of driving, and sitting around, and eating.  

TOTALS 6/6

Bike - Walk - Lift - Run - Bike - Rest - Hockey

 

LEGITIMATE REST DAY 1x / week

I think that a day of nothing but hanging out and eating counts as rest, lol!

TOTALS 1/1

 

PRACTICE LIKE RIN

tumblr_nhukprytOB1tyak95o2_r1_500.gif

 

ART GOALS  4x / week

Still not feeling super great about my art lately, but I did manage to get four days in.   Some longer than others.

TOTALS 4/4

 

D&D PREP WORK  1x / week

Don't know when we are playing next, and I had MEANT to get some notes down or work up more NPCs, but it didn't happen this week.

TOTALS 0/1

 

COSTUME WORK   3x / challenge

Nothing yet.  No worries.   We did TALK about costumes on Saturday though, and it looks like we may be doing the Black Widow / Deadpool combo.   I should still work on the Jedi stuff, just because.

 

CONQUER MY ARCHER

cf78dbc9d40c24740e0696d2f0cc9303.gif

 

AFFIRMATIONS  7x / week

All 7 days were good this week.  Chapter read, affirmations written!

TOTALS 7/7

 

PUCK LOVE, BOLD EDITION  1x / week

Um, heck yeah I did this.   I shared a pic that showed my tummy!  o.o

TOTALS 1/1

 

BEYOND THE BOUNDARY   3x / challenge

Calling it a warm up, but choosing to do that bike ride with only the sports bra was definitely beyond my usual boundaries.

 

EAT TO PERFORM   7x / week

I have done so much better with getting more calories into me!  And so far, the scale has not screamed upwards!  I even went back and tracked my awful Saturday just to get 7 full tracking days!

Calories in from last week: 2000, 1800, 1800, 1900, 2000, 2500, 2500 - um, whoa!

TOTALS 7/7

 

KEEP UP NIGHTLY REGIME   7x / week

Face, lotion, brushing teef, all good.   I've been trying to floss more - and this is the thing that get dropped if it's late or I am tired.  I would like to get 3-4x a week, but we're not there yet.

TOTALS 7/7

 

ODDS AND ENDS

- Buy tickets for Wizard World

- Plan August trip.

- Research new bike.

- Buy new bike for August trip.

- Clean out closet.

- Go through clothes, recycle, toss, etc.

- Finish leather pouch for Jedi costume (requires a snap install)

- Research suburban Improv Class *

- Clean up PC, files, pics, etc.

 

Oh hmm!  I managed to knock out two of these odds and ends too.     Nice!    A really good week was had!   It went by so fast that I feel like some of the days were eons ago.   Like, I fit so much into the week it must have been months.   A really solid start, but I have to not let the good weather strip me of my goals.   I need to savor the sun and summer - but not forego other things just because of.   So this week, if there is a lift day that is also a sunny day, I am gonna go do a playground workout or something.   Or... make sure that I get a walk in before or after work so I can lift in the warehouse.    I'm making such progress with the lifts, I can't afford to drop down to like 1x a week with it.

 

This week starts my 2x a week for sure hockey weeks.  Wed. and Fri. will have hockey at night, which means I can use the lunch hour to take a leisurely outside walk!   I've been debating on the idea of doubling up and lifting AND hockeying the same day, but that means I'd have to find a way to eat like 3000 calories and that's just not going to happen.

 

Anyway!   Off to week 2!   Super excited to see what it brings us!
