  1. Today
  2. Friday Update You know, if I could talk about what happens at work it would make for a much more interesting update because yesterday was crazy with some mental things that went on but I can't so I will just say my usual: Woah, another day, whoddathunk it. I was very well behaved yesterday. Sort of. I got into work really early as I took TH in and I had a blueberry muffin for breakfast. Lunch was a salad with dolmades even though what I really wanted to do was hit the town and go crazy with some crisps but I ate what I had. I also had a pot of homemade greek yoghurt. After work I got a bit of grocery shopping and a snack because I was starving and then I went to pick TH up from work. I swear I do my best driving when I am trying not to disturb the Lap Pringles. We got home and had my dad's pea soup with some fresh Mediterranean bread and then some ice cream. I have never bought and eaten so much ice cream. I had a dream last night we were planning a holiday to the Azores and it was so boring and detailed I am genuinely surprised not to be going on holiday to the Azores. Nourish I told you about this, it was alright until the Lap Pringles and even then it wasn't terrible. Relate I might have been too full of Lap Pringles.

I stayed up and at computer too late. Binge watching of youtube videos was my sin. But those were nice videos - about hammocks, tarps and overall camping gear and techniques. I like those. - This thing needs to move Nothing to write here - just made myself busy with small things. It did the job.

Morning coffee with 200ml whole milk - 120kcal, 6g protein Total 2509 kcal, 132 g protein. Workout (strength): warmup - 5min elliptical 8 | 7 | 7 assisted chin-ups 10 neg pull-ups 3 x (15 squats with sand pillow (22,7kg / 50lb) / 16 push-ups) in circuit 1 min plank stretching - bit of dynamic stretch, bit of yoga poses Turns out I can't do negative chin-ups after all. I tried different hand placement, but in every configuration my right elbow pit stung. Some muscle just isn't cooperating and squeezes veins/nerves. When I do regular (assisted) chinup, it is fine. Maybe said muscle just needs time to position itself the right place and when jumping to the bar without the tension, the muscle places itself awkwardly. Anyway - I just did negative pull-ups instead.

    Small rant ahead, feel free to skip: Anyway, on to today's stats: Fitness: - Did a lot of extra workouts during the week so took a rest day today instead. Nutrition: - Had 2 healthy things today: apple and grapes. So far except for yesterday I've had 2 to 3 healthy things all week this week. Pretty proud of myself. Intellectual: - Found some plotting issues while working through this chapter that will affect things later, and I'm trying to figure out how to make the necessary changes while still making sense. Also wondering if I should pare the plot down a bit too.

    Elastigirl: Just keep plugging along

    No worries. I like fun side discussions/ rants. I actually sometimes enjoy movies of my favorite books. As long as I go in with the expectation that the movie isn't going to be good, and may not follow the book. I enjoyed the LoTR movies, but didn't like the Hobbit movie. I did feel like they kept most of the important parts of LoTR, but the Hobbit movies were just all over the place.

    Sloth gets some miles in

    There are a few other things. Mini donuts, tater tots, cheese curds, wild rice. You should have seen my mom's (Michigander) reaction when I made tater tot hot dish around last Thanksgiving and compared it to green bean casserole. Glasses look great. The frame seems to be the most common style I see people in these days.

    I have lost 2.6kg (5.7lb) in the last month. I am really happy with that result. Unexpected as I didnt think I had been doing enough to cause the weight loss. Especially the last fortnight with having the kids for school holidays. Sent from my CPH1725 using Tapatalk

    I swear I'll do a challenge soon right now I'm battling the last breathes of a fierce summer semester! Although I'd like to not that I did win the battle with depression! I know not all days will be easy or the most bright but with the right people in my life, the proper nutrients, spirituality, and a kickass attitude i'll make it through those days like a beast

    Strickland5 gets back on the wagon

    How much harder is running on hills than running on a flat course in general? I'm just picking up a running habit and the trail that's a 10 minute drive from my house is pretty flat whereas the one a two minute walk away has a lot of hills.
  13. Decided to go for a run today instead of a bike ride. I'm not sure how my speed compared to last week. I think it might have been a bit slower, but the tracking data from last week had some weird zig zags in it that are throwing the pace off (according to the tracking data, I was running sub 4 minute mile pace towards the end). This week's GPS data looks better and puts me at about an 11 minute mile pace during the runs. Running felt a lot easier this week than last. I wasn't terribly tired after any of the runs, even the ones at the very ends. I actually got bored on a couple of the walking segments. Turns out this running thing isn't terrible when you don't feel like you're dying. Food truck at work today was OCheeze, so my exception for the summer, and it was very good. Grilled cheese with bacon, apple, honey, fontina cheese, and walnuts. Veggies may or may not happen today. I got one serving in at lunch and will get another couple in if I feel like eating again tonight. I skipped eating dinner after the grilled cheese at 2:30. This in and of itself is pretty new. In the past, I've always been annoyed if I didn't get a full meal around both lunch and dinner time (with "lunch time" being pretty flexible). Today, I'm just not particularly hungry and, if I do get hungry, I'm not going to want too much food. I should get my third strength session for the week in tomorrow morning. Now I just need to convince myself that eating lunch in the work break room (my gym is in the basement of work) on a Saturday is a happier idea than picking up pizza on my way between places... Today was a good day and I am happy.

    Snickie respawns!

    Yep, this week is weird. Let's see how encoding spoiler tags on my Chromebook will break my posts. (Aaaaaand it did.) Progress Report W 7/17 Progress Report R 7/18 Progress Report F 7/19 Rest Exercise Day (I did this about 15 minutes before actual dinner) Bodyweight squats w/ 3lb weight - 7, 7, 7 One-legged calf raises /leg - 16, 16, 16 Knee push-ups - 5, 5, 5 arms kept wanting to go out especially when I focused on going deep. Counted for challenge since I can't do pike pushups. Walking lunges /side - 5, 5, 5 I have finally officially leveled up on these sort of. Hanging (ct at 128/2 bpm) - 24, 24, 24 = total 67.5 seconds I did these weird since I'm on the rows stage and not the pullup stage and I don't have a bar or a thin-yet-sturdy tree branch, so the first and third set I did at the top of the row (knees bent) and the second set I did at the bottom (body straight). The second set felt like cheating because I'm using a walker and the bar I normally use for pullups was too low so I was using the handles and my wrists were kind of held against the lower bar so I went back to the top on the third set even though it was torture in the first set. Plank - 30s, 30s, 30s Jumping jacks - 28, 28, 28 Food Nothing in the morning oops Afternoon: wakame flakes (kelp); BJs roasted garlic hummus with carrots; more wakame flakes Early evening: mango Actual dinner: chili (incl bell peppers, no beans) Late evening: even more wakame flakes Reading No today was pretty lazy. Clarinet Nope. Also, I'm pretty lost on this dress. I think I'm going to cut a new pattern, one piece instead of separate top and skirt; hopefully I have enough fabric left for that. I haven't decided if I'm going to use the knit or the chiffon for it yet (or both and attach the non-stretchy chiffon somehow to the stretchy knit so that it sits over but still stretches underneath).

    Skywalker handstands: Padawan level planks it is. 4 breaks taken total. Jedi high jumps: Took 3 breaks to finish them all Jabba the hutt chokes: 3x10 body weight rows, first 2 sets without breaks. Chewbacca carries were skipped as I couldn't find a heavy enough weight. Han Solo shuttle runs:  Just ran jogged the whole 6x20 secs thing. Fitbit provided the 20sec count and 10 secs intervals.  Force push ups:  4 sets of 8 Knee Plyometric Push-ups - had to rest in between  Jedi force choke holds:  Jumping up to catch a bar is a lot harder then stepping off support. 3 breaks were taken. Some of the items were done before the 10k run(force choke holds and body weight rows) , some after. Running 10k does take some out of you. After run snack: 2 packets coconut drink One orange One apple 2 eggs 250 ml chocolate milk drink

    Flea Learns How to Human, Part 2

    Yeah. Ultimate sadness. I just told my brother “tl;dr we’re gonna be without him for 3 weeks” and he was like “what the fuck?!?!?!” And asked if we could go with one of the other treatment options instead. Womp.

    Leaving pets at the vet always makes me super sad, so I can imagine how stressful the idea of leaving him for 3 weeks is! Poor baby. :/

    [NeverThatBored] After Enlightenment, The Laundry

    Week 3 Friday Update Cfit in the morning. Since I've been going more I keep running out of clean athletic clothes too fast. We've all been discussing the best brands for workout shorts so I'll probably get a few pairs to get my laundry schedule back to normal. I went to do some Japanese homework at Starbucks after work, so I didn't end up getting out on a walk. Our class is on Tuesday, but she never sends us the list of homework until Friday. This really annoys be because it's hours of work and I'd much rather start it on Wednesday! I wanted to have cake for dinner, but I'm forcing myself to eat real food like an adult first. My friend's husband is having a birthday gathering at Hershey Park in PA tomorrow, so I'm driving out there. I'm nervous because it's an unfamiliar drive and I'm a nervous driver in general, and also I'm not enthusiastic about the idea of driving there and back in the same day. It's like 2.5 hours each way. But, it will be good to see friends. Several people have told me that I should still have things to do even though I don't like rollercoasters, so we'll see!

    Flea Learns How to Human, Part 2

    Also I’m pissed off. The doctor called my father with the blood test results this morning (his number is on the account, which is fine). But all he did was write down what she said. Asked no questions. Told me what she said later, I told my brother, and they both left it up to me to call back with questions. Simple fucking questions like “which treatment option do you recommend? What do they all cost? Are their there side effects?” Etc. Jesus fucking Christ come on. In other news, I’m watching Cutthroat Kitchen and they made grilled cheeses and I really want one right this second. But I don’t have cheese. Or bread. Or any desire to actually eat a ton of cheese on a day that’s over 90F and humid as fuck. Yay.

    Flea Learns How to Human, Part 2

    Stupid cat has hyperthyroidism and is going to cost us a fuckton of money. The most effective way (and ultimately cheapest in the long run) way to treat it is to inject him with radioactive iodine, which requires at minimum a 5-day hospital stay until he chills out to a safe level of radioactivity. But then he’s still radioactive for ~2 weeks so we’d have to be crazy careful about what he touches and where he sleeps etc and can only pet him for 20 minutes a day max. One of the two places in the area that does it also offers to board patients until the radioactivity completely wears off. But that means he’s gone for almost 3 weeks and makes me sad for him. Because he lived with some old people at first, I guess, then spent some time in a shelter after they either died or had to move to an assisted living place sans pets (I was in France when we got him and I’ve heard both stories), then my aunt got him for my grandfather. My grandfather died, then my grandmother went to the hospital two years later and we took him in because she never made it back home. Then my mother died 4 years after that, and she was kind of his person. So he keeps leaving all his people. And I will feel awful dropping him off for almost 3 weeks while he doesn’t understand and doesn’t know that he’s coming home. T_T Plus the place that does the procedure + boarding is a pain in the ass to get to, which means a 30+ minute drive on a good day aka 30+ minutes of sad cat wailing. They specified that you can't visit during the first several days that they’re super radioactive, but it doesn’t say anything about the boarding period. I will totally go visit him if it’s allowed but I’ll probably cry leaving him every day. Stupid cat. I’m just venting because anxiety is making this a bigger deal than it really is and obviously there is no one to talk to at home about it. It’s a stupidly simple procedure it’s just the radioactivity and the restrictions that makes it complicated. And I don’t want to be without my stupid cat and make him be sad for three fucking weeks. If we didn’t have boobcat it might have been manageable but it’s basically impossible with both. And in case anyone is worried, he’s getting the treatment no matter what. My father is already bitching about the cost estimate on the website but if it comes down to it my brother and I will split it. He may be a useless waste of oxygen in every other aspect of life, but he will not give up on these cats so long as he’s alive. He’ll make someone else do all the work, but he’ll badger them til it gets done. So the bills will get paid. I’m just bitching about the reality of my cat being a pain in the ass. There’s a small chance he may not need the procedure. The boarding place does a scan before they prep them for it to see if the thyroid is actually fucked or if the cat just naturally has high levels of whatever hormone and doesn’t need treatment. I’m crossing my fingers for the latter, but it’s unlikely. Apparently some of the symptoms are weight loss (check), normal or increased appetite, and increased vocalization (check and check, cf screaming for food whenever he sees a human). ugh. Pets. If I ever get my own place and my own cat I’m getting them insurance.

    [iatetheyeti] Battlemage Vol. I: Beginnings

    If its not in your control then there's not much point beating yourself up about it. Sometimes the only thing you can do is let go. Sh*t happens and it's no one's fault sometimes. That's what my colleague told me. I have this thing about having things run according to plan and any deviations irk me. But in life one of the constants is change, as well as death and taxes.
