This week’s themes: Updating, Remembering, Needing, Wearing, Being.

30-something therapy sunday lately

Updating: I had to update my derby number for this upcoming season, which means new scrimmage tanks, armbands… but basically a new identity too. Having butt-hurt feelings about it, naturally, but not really much that I can do about it.

Remembering: Speaking of derby, I couldn’t remember how long ago I joined and thankful for Timehop to remind me. Five years ago, I was skating at my first Steel City boot camp, and I tried out for Fresh Meat a short time later, which means that I’ve been skating for almost 6 years (I started in a rec league in Ohio the year prior). CRAZY!

Needing: PROTEIN. Hard-boiling eggs, eating all the chicken (as much as I hate it), stocking up on protein bars. And I just received a great sample pack of protein powder (angel food cake flavor!!!) and flavor packs to try from Devotion Nutrition. I’m making this Fruity Hoops Protein Fluff first.

Wearing: These days, it feels as though I can’t get into all the fleece soon enough. Unfortunately, wanting to be all warm and cozy is making me LAZY AF.

Being: My first 30-day “challenge” was to acknowledge and attempt to redirect my behavior of complaining. Man, do I HATE being labeled as a complainer! My focus is to reduce the complaints and more be actionable about changing the situation. A lot of my complaining stems from a loss of independence, so these small behavioral changes will help me gain back a little of my take-charge attitude.

Have a good week!

  • I’m nowhere near the level of toughness that is required to be a derby girl, but I would LOVE to watch one some day. There’s a league here in Wheeling that I need to check out.

      Yes, OVRG! You should definitely go check them out!

  • You do roller derby?! How cool! I’m definitely with you. The more I bundle up the more I want to be home and cozy.

    You’re a Derby Girl! How awesome! I can’t believe you had to change your number…BOO HISS.

  • I love your graphic with all of the week’s themes! So fresh.

    I feel you with complaining. There are things I’m too scared/lazy to change so I complain about them, but I try really hard to take a step back and say, “Change it or STFU.”

    Okay, how do you eat that protein fluff? Like a meal? I’d be all over that.

      Thanks, lady! I’m trying to “do the right blog stuff” by adding visual elements to my posts. I don’t typically do it because I’m lazy and just want to publish, but I want to make a better effort. :)

      I love that “Change it or STFU” motto. Might write it on my chalkboard this week. As for the protein fluff, I imagine it’s much like a smoothie. I’ll let you know how filling it is, as a meal replacement!

      • Ugh I hate the whole “do the right blog stuff” and always having to make sure you have a pretty, pinnable image with each post. Sometimes I just want to write and hit publish, yo.

        Keep me posted on that fluff!
