Ok, that's not entirely true, I regret losing what shreds of control I was gaining over my sleep schedule.
Like it says in the title, this is basically take #2 on last challenge - Life went completely bonkers about a week in last challenge:
So for the challenge parts, I'm basically going to copy/paste from last challenge and make the modifications needed from there:
...understatement much there?
Quest 1 : Sleep management - 5 points/week
Going to bed near the same time every night - With moving my schedule from 3-11:30 to 12-8:30 I'll be able to target earlier times, between late work and stress I've been going to bed between 4 and 6 am
Getting up at the same time every morning, when my alarm goes off - this one is DEFINITELY going to be a struggle, I tend to snooze and I absolutely hate getting up in the morning. I think for now I'm going to target 9am
Ok, so because I'm still on seconds there's no way to do the "work out 4-5 hours before sleep" thing unfortunately. Instead, I'll try to make sure I actually make the bed everyday and set a regular bedtime - probably 1-2 am ish
Half a point for bed made, half a point for going to bed on time, aiming for 5 total points
Quest 2 : Food tracking - 5 points/week
I've gotten better at making sure I have food options and making food ahead again, now time to start tracking it. That plus I'm not entirely certain when work is going to happen again, potentially early
April? It depends on both my company and Ohio's government, much as I'm not super happy about being off for longer I hope the governor keeps the state shut down because I don't want to see this thing explode and cause a massive health crisis. But it means I don't want to try to have a food prep design that expects shifts every week, or one that expects time
Track food on Lifesum at least 5 days/week, 1 point/day
I may also share some pics/recipes on here 'cause food
Adding 1 item to this - 1 vegetarian meal/day, mostly because it's a really good way to get extra veggies and fiber in my diet - I started trying to do that a couple of weeks ago and it seems to be helping, even though I haven't gotten this perfectly by any means
Quest 3 : Work on sticking to a schedule - 7 points/week
Madness. Definitely madness. And using some advice from this CGP grey video - even though I'm still working, a lot of the advice is really helpful for me. https://youtu.be/snAhsXyO3Ck
Scheduling and sticking to said schedule for food prep, exercise and sleep.
Keeping up with planning in my bullet journal, planning and executing such things as cleaning, project time, practicing guitar etc
1 point for each day I do a VR boxing workout (max 5 points/week)
1 point for each day I do guitar specifically (max 2 points/week)
Me playing said boxing game - is fun, and makes me both sweaty and panty, so it's definitely getting me an actual workout on top of being fun
Life quest : study Japanese - 2 points/week
Use Duo min 5x/wk
Study 1 lesson/wk from my text books, these have 12 lessons each and they should be plenty doable especially as a repeat course at a rate of 1/week.
I completely dropped this last challenge due to general chaos
1 point for Duo
1 point for studying from the text books
So um - yo ho, me hearties?
