  1. Habits are what will carry you through the winter that is on it's way. Motivation is fleeting. You got this, Hatter! Kick some ass!
  2. Might I suggest tea instead of coffee first? Easing into caffeine would be a good way to start. Way to go on your week, Jupiter!
  3. Lift 3 days per week. 1/3 - Weekly 1/15 - 5WC Did not lift yesterday as planned. Bike riding 3 days per week. 3/3 - Weekly 3/15 - 5WC All 4 of us went for a ride. JJ and Pizzazz went for 3.5 miles and Jitter Bug and I went for 2.5 miles. She did not want to go in the first place, but I'm glad she did. Found a cool path through some trees that looked a lot like what I imagine fairy tale forests to look like. Reflect 3 days per week. 1/3 - Weekly 1/15 - 5WC I'm hoping the spark that is in my brain now stays there all day. Bonus: Juggle more. 0/2 - Weekly 0/10 - 5WC Still need to get this going.
  4. Do you have pictures of the quilt you are working on? I'd be interested in seeing it if you do. Well done, Fox! Keep up the great work
  5. Lift 3 days per week. 1/3 - Weekly 1/15 - 5WC Did not lift yesterday, planning on lifting today. Bike riding 3 days per week. 2/3 - Weekly 2/15 - 5WC No Ride yesterday. I think tomorrow is the plan Reflect 3 days per week. 1/3 - Weekly 1/15 - 5WC I finally got an entry down this morning. I'm rereading what I wrote and I can tell I'm not going deep enough. Bonus: Juggle more. 0/2 - Weekly 0/10 - 5WC We'll see what happens on this one. JJ took a good tumble off a bike yesterday and his elbow is pretty well messed up. Not so bad we needed medical attention beyond a parents care and first aid kit, but enough that he will be in pain if he juggles. Jitter Bug has been expressing interest in the poi again, so maybe that's the route I take for this week.
  6. I am ever thankful for my family. My son was especially encouraging last night. Lift 3 days per week. 1/3 - Weekly 1/15 - 5WC JJ is enrolled in an online school and part of their PE was a workout with stairs, squats, push ups, etc... After, he asked if he and I could go downstairs and lift. Of course I said yes. DL - 1x5x140 OP - 1x5x90 Squats - 1x10x90 - which was extra nice, since we did the bodyweight squats with JJs PE... Bike riding 3 days per week. 2/3 - Weekly 2/15 - 5WC You've done a 6 minute workout with your family, you lifted with your son, you finished staining a pannel on your fence while waiting for your wife to finish cleaning the pool, what do you do? Well, if your Jitters, you go out on a bike ride. We rode for almost a mile and a half because we were pretty worn out and it was getting dark. Reflect 3 days per week. 0/3 - Weekly 0/15 - 5WC Not yet, but tonight for sure. Bonus: Juggle more. 0/2 - Weekly 0/10 - 5WC Didn't happen last night. Might be difficult tonight with the kids in scout meetings. May have to be tomorrow and the weekend.
  7. Overall, that looks like a good update. Well done!
  8. Well, last night was a bit of a bust. Here's how it shakes down: Lift 3 days per week. No matter what. I somehow find a way to not do something. It's easy not to do the thing. No more. I will be going with squats, overhead presses, and deadlifts. 0/3 - Weekly 0/15 - 5WC I did not lift last night. JJ got a long bike ride in with his mom and I got dinner going. Then meetings for Scouts. And then packing up tents we had drying out from the weekend... The list goes on. Bike riding 3 days per week. As mentioned, my wife is doing a virtual biking challenge with Kat and it's easier to ride with someone else. I am happy to oblige. 1/3 - Weekly 1/15 - 5WC And nothing on this one. Dinner making instead of bike riding. Reflect 3 days per week. Back in November of '18, my ears started ringing. It didn't get better. Doctors were consulted, tests were run, and in the end, the conclusion was: "We have no idea what is going on. You're going to have to learn to live with it." Let me tell you, it sucks. I was once able to meditate and bring calm to my mind. It's been nearly two years since I could do that. I miss a lot of what comes from quiet. Instead of meditation for one of my goals, I am going to start journaling. I think it may help. 0/3 - Weekly 0/15 - 5WC I am not sure why this one scares me to begin. Maybe it will reveal things I don't want to face yet? Maybe I'm just lazy about it. Need to get that going. Bonus: Juggle more. I haven't juggled in a long while until a couple of weeks ago. The kids got out some of my juggling props and it made me realize it's been so long. I am going to make sure to take some time out of my day to juggle with the kids. Sometimes, possibly literally. Aiming for at least two days per week. This is more for fun. 0/2 - Weekly 0/10 - 5WC There is plenty of time for this one (famous last words, I know) when the kids have more time in the evenings.
  9. Turns out I could not get anything done workout related yesterday. I'm alright with that, though. I had a Scout meeting and got something that looks like a plan for the start of our Cub Scout year in place. Now we need to execute it. "No plan of operations extends with certainty beyond the first encounter with the enemy's main strength.” The enemy in this case is 2020 itself, so, I'm hopeful.
  10. Went camping this weekend and it was a bit of a mess with reservations and having to move sites the morning after we got there. In the rain. The mess that was didn't really deter the Scouts, it just added a new story. Hiked a lot and am feeling the burn. So, of course I went with my wife on her bike ride last night. We'll see how good of a decision it was. We are live with the new challenges. If you're in one, happy fitnessing. If not, have a great week!
  11. It's time It was quite the weekend. Went camping with my son's Troop. Got a lot of hiking in. Went 6.5 miles on Saturday. Up and down a lot of hills, around fallen trees, through mud. It was a lot of fun. My thighs are killing me, but in the best ways possible... well, almost best. Yesterday, we got out and biked for 2.5 miles before dinner. Made some Lo Mein and played some games. Oh, Jitter Bug got her ears pierced as well. She is so happy with them. We ended up going with a tattoo and piercing shop that we trusted instead of a mall shop. I think overall, a better decision. She told me that it hurt a little, but she's over the pain. Did not stop smiling all evening. Didn't get much else done yesterday. We got home, unpacked, got cleaned up, and got the house straightened up. Looking forward to the week. Lift 3 days per week. No matter what. I somehow find a way to not do something. It's easy not to do the thing. No more.
