We run the poop conversation dry and it gets quiet around here?

Week 2 Summary

i-want-it-that-way-1-newer.gif

 

 

Wow last week kind of slipped by me there!  I got all caught up in the poo conversation and lost track of updating for the challenge hahah.  THANKS GUYS.  No but really... thanks.  Nothing brings me joy quite like our crazy tangents around here do.

 

So, last week ended up being not quite as successful as the first week.  I had A LOT going on and essentially ended up going everything one time more or one time less (depending on the goal) than I was supposed to. 

 

CLICK FOR EXCUSES GALORE

  • Tuesday I had a meeting for my volunteer organization.  I'm on the steering committee for the Human Rights Campaign New Jersey (HRC) and it was our first general volunteer meeting outside of just the steering committee where we were trying to get new ground level volunteers to join us at future events and stuff, and it went really well! So much planning went into just trying to coordinate that, and we got some new interest and afterwards one of the new volunteers offered to buy everyone a round at the local bar and I gave in, but only because they had my one of my favourite beers there. So I ended up not cleaning that night because I got home mega late.
  • Thursday night my friend who is moving to London for over a year soon and my other friend who was visiting from California and I went out to dinner and got massages.  No drinking involved though! But I got a deep tissue massage and was SO SORE from it on Friday than I skipped my strength workout. 
  • Friday I had a working dinner with a fellow HRC member who needed my help in learning MailChimp.  He bought me dinner as repayment - I got low-carb fish tacos though so I was proud of myself there!
  • Saturday was my grandma's 80th/cousins 30th combo birthday party that Mr. Raxie and I stayed the night over her house for.  It was a blast, a bunch of family came up from VA that I haven't seen in forever.  We stayed up until 4am talking and catching up around a fire after the old folks went to bed (we still refer to ourselves as "the kids table" hahah) and I was lucky to make it out Sunday with only a minor hangover.  We only got ~4 hours of sleep and needed a nap halfway through the day and also ordered pizza. Poor life choices.

 

 

So I lost some momentum and ended up  missing one workout session, one cleaning session, and one meditation, as well as eat out twice more than I was supposed to (not counting the party food as eating out since it was home cooked, just not by me, and I had salmon and grilled veggies).  But overall I feel I had the challenge on my mind the whole time and really did what I could when I could so I'm not going to call it a failure, just not a crazy huge success.  This week is shaping up to be much better!

 

Week 2 Final Numbers:

75% Success Overall

Wow, busy week. Don't leave us hanging, what's your favorite beer?

 

Just one of my favourites - I wouldn't say all time favourite (I'd really have to think on that one) - but it was River Horse's Hop-A-Lot-Amus IPA

Wow, busy indeed, but it seems like it was all good-busy. And as you say, you did your best. Seems to me it was a good trade-off, all that positive life stuff for a slightly-less-than-perfect-but-still good challenge week. Sometimes those trades need to be made.

I'm pretty OK with it.  My only real regret is drinking so much Saturday night that my hangover coerced me into getting pizza.  Just a little more restraint and I would have been fine - I just got so excited to see family!! Lesson learned for next time though.

Well I mean... it's an important topic for humans of all ages!! I am of the strong opinion that poop shame should not be a thing and is a great topic of discussion as it is such a huge indicator of ones health.  Though the eating of poop talk did come out of left field a bit hahaha.  A few challenges ago we had quite the threadjack going to talk about squatty potties so I guess I'm not really surprised.

I'd believe it!  Warriors love poop talk just as much as us apparently.  I think it's the eating part that scared them away.

Week 3 Update #1

tumblr_ot7fcbm9BS1qdb83ao1_500.gif

 

Wow so far behind on legit updates here.  This week has been another totally crazy one, but this time it was really unexpected.  One of my cats had to be rushed to the hospital Wednesday night and has been in overnight observation there ever since.  I brought him to my primary vet down the street and they basically were like, you should bring him to the 24 hour place ASAP.  That place is ~45 minutes away so that's taken up a lot of my week in going back and forth visiting him, nerve wracked hours of waiting for the vet to call after rounds, and just general anxiety.  He is fine now and will hopefully be coming home tonight, but they still haven't figured out exactly what is wrong with him so I don't know what this means for his quality of life in general and if we might have to make some tough decisions and I'm kind of a wreck about it :( It's SO FRUSTRATING because they've done so many tests and they really just don't know what the problem is, so we can't even make any decisions in terms of a path forward (do we leave him there another night? do we make regular vet visits a thing like once a week? do we try to do care at home? is he in pain? will he have pain in the future? etc etc) so it's all just very confusing.  And also absurdly expensive, I've had to start dipping into our honey moon fund which is totally worth it and I'm not complaining about it - I'm honestly glad we had that pot of money to dip into - it's really frustrating that we are slowly chipping away at our vacation and we are no closer to figuring out what his issue is.  My best friend is a vet and has been giving me second opinions on everything and she is also at a loss so I don't think it's a matter of finding another vet or something.  

 

Anyway, I've done next to nothing for the week because of it.  I decided that since last week was a bust to keep doing my BW workouts this week, and since this week was too I'm just gonna keep with them through the end of the challenge and come back with a vengence next challenge to the barbell.

 

I'm trying to keep in high spirits and at least keep the place kinda clean so my sweetie pie has a nice place to come home to.  =/  I did do a BWW today, and have gotten some meditation in and we only ate out once while we were waiting at the vet's office last night (pizza - my biggest weakness).  So I guess it's not so bad.  This weekend Mr. Raxie and I start dance lessons for the wedding so I have that to look forward to!  It should be interesting since I have a lotttttt of dance experience (14+ years) but hardly no ballroom so that's a bit intimidating to me, and he currently can't keep a beat when he claps so he's nervous too. I hope it is a fun experience for us and not super frustrating.  Either way I think it'll be a nice change of pace in terms of exercise!
