    The Return of Terinatum - aka tiny steps commence

    Goals: Saturday, the 12th 12 oz DP/day - no check, I had 20 oz and a 12 oz (and 3 candy bars) Water - CHECK, over 60 oz. Walk: CHECK Draw: no check - there's some weird avoidance thing going on... Sunday, the 13th 12 oz DP/day - no check, I had 20 oz and 16 oz (and 5 candy bars) Water - CHECK, about 50 oz Walk: CHECK Draw: no check Monday, the 14th 12 oz DP/day - no check, I had 20 oz (and 5 candy bars) Water - no Check, pretty abysmal today. Walk: CHECK, tiny but there! Draw: no Check, I skipped drawing class. Hum... I've been doing alright even with these uneven results. And, even though my arthritis has been really annoying and my neck is really screwed up, my humor is intact and I'm not overly depressed or anxious. Go figure!
  4. Hi All, It has been quite a while since I last challenged myself here at NF and I feel like it's time to write my activities down again. Backstory I was running, lifting, and eating fairly well with NF’s massive help back between 2013 into some of '16 when my back (already bad) gave out and running was taken off the table. {Mind you, just writing that made me think to myself that "running was taken from me" which implies that a good deal of my resentment is still keeping me pinned down to what used to be.} So that is why I'm here again. That and I love this community! I gained back 70 pounds of the 91 that I lost. It was really tough to love myself through this. I wasn’t willing or able to really look at me so I left NF and my goals far behind. Through another two years of therapy and several really tough but GOOD life decisions, I have come to a time where I am willing to chance a fail or two in hopes that I find another passion (not that it has to be as awesome as running was for me) that keeps my eyes looking forward and able to see the present for what it is, not what I demand it to be. So… Goals 1.) consume 12 oz of Dr Pepper or less each day. I am kinda doing this now but without much ‘goings on’ in my days, it can be tough to grab another to satisfy the empty place inside. Which of course it doesn’t even do that so go figure the human mind! 2.) get outside and walk (any time or distance) at least 4 times/week. Not entirely sure where I should put the times/week on this one. I know everyday would only set me up to fail so that’s out. And twice seemed too easy, I think. So I’ll give this two weeks and adjust if need be for the second half of the challenge. 3.) Water, Water, Water Drink 40 oz per day This is really important. It’s tough for me to drink water after I’ve had a DP so if I can’t make this happen on a regular basis than DP will have to go. It has to anyway, but I don’t want to start with that this time. Although, funny. It was one of my first goals here at NF back in Feb 2013. Ha! Life) Draw I have a drawing class starting on the 7th which I’m psyched about so this should help me add to a weekly amount of drawing. I will also be doing maps for my worldbuilding. So, drawing every day! Yup, I said it. EVERY DAY!!! I can do this, I just have to realize that it’s what I want. Which it is. This goal is about ‘doing’ the regular thing. I think starting a habit with a life goal is better as I’m less likely to judge myself harshly if I slip up. OKAY I’m Back!
