Recommended Posts

Why hello, friends.

I think I can do this again. I came to post a challenge and I guess this is a zero week too! awesome! I don't feel under any pressure at all!

 

UM last challenge was a little meep. I got through the first two weeks really well! of course, I was pre-vacation, and then on vacation. and when I got back and my knees started hurting and I realized that I was suffering from an anxiety hangover from the last..... oh 4-6 months.... I shut down a little. week 3 was a bad week, and week 4 was a week of doing JUST ONE THING. I would go for a walk. or do a yoga thing. or just do one thing. And I had 3 weeks of serious acupuncture sessions to fix my knees and legs and they're doing GREAT, and I am getting new running shoes, and the older kid graduated from high school, and work is in a weird lull that is ok by me, and I finished my volunteer obligation as secretary/treasurer at my alumni association, and my dad is doing really great, and I feel like I can BREATHE again.

 

so, I'm getting back on this horse!

and this horse is an amazing SPARKLECORN!

and this challenge is going to be SUPER AWESOME.

 

Goals:

Goal 1. Work the food thing. Stay on target with the calories. try to increase protein. eat your csa veggies. be cool.

Goal 2. Do a thing every day. just a thing. a pokewalk, a stretching session, tkd, running, these are all things I like.

Goal 3. Don't bag out on this challenge.

 

This seems pretty simple, right? ok lets go.

yes! It feels good to decompress and not just *react* to things right now.

Glad you're in a place where you can breathe a bit. You've had a crazy few months. <3

it's been a lot. I mean, people do this kind of thing all the time, and go through worse for longer - which is maybe why I"m surprised that I'm still feeling the hangover.

do you know I spent at least 15 minutes looking for a good GIF to put into my first post and then all of the internet didn't want to cooperate with me and I'm so glad I didn't get one in there because this is the right first GIF for this thread.

happy wednesday that is not a monday but feels like a monday!

I had a good weekend. I didn't do as much work as I intended to on Monday, had a nice motorcycle ride on Tuesday, and drank a lot of beers in the afternoon while reading books on the couch until the fireworks started. I did 10 minutes of spinning for the Tour de Fleece (it's a spinning challenge that goes on while the Tour de France is in action), and went to bed with the windows closed because of neighborhood fireworks (UGH). happily it wound down by about 1030.

 

I think this week I need to seriously work on getting to bed at a reasonable hour, and waking up at my regular exercise time. That will get me correct-footed for the challenge, and feels like a valuable zero week thing to do. like, this morning. I woke up at 5:10, but didn't get out of bed to go running. that's no good! I mean, my kitty was snuggled in pretty sweetly, and she was stressed out last night by the fireworks, so that was my excuse, but still....

Sure, and then they crash and burn hard, get stress related diseases and/or have to take brain meds.

 

Rest is important yo.

And I love that you're already planning to have a 1st day of work pic for your hubs. 

I am so dorky, I always try to take first day of anything photos. I have one from my very first day of work after college! a friend stayed over with me the night before and took it.

Daww, that's very sweet of you, sacrificing your precious challenge space. Must be love. ;) 

this year is our five year anniversary so I got him a total eclipse of the sun. It is going to be 4 days late, but I think he'll be ok with that. (the five year anniversary gift is occluded suns, right?)

it's thursday!

we're having a shake-up at my construction site so I didn't need to rush down there for meetings... instead I got up and had a 2 mile run and stretched a LOT and got to work late. I'm riding the motorcycle this week, it's pretty great to be back on it regularly. tonight is tkd, and also we have a bunch of veggies from last week in our fridge that need to be eaten.
