  1. Day 2: This was a roughly emotional day. Exercise: 1/35 No exercise. Nutrition:3/70 I tracked and clocked 0 liquid calories, despite the opportunity to indulge! Reflection: 2/35 more dreams, more journaling Grand total: 6/140
  2. Day 1 in the books!! Exercise: 1/35 Yoga! Nutrition:1/70 (I tracked, and had a glass of port. Ah well) Reflection: 1/35 (a long journal entry reflecting on some recent vivid dreams) Grand total: 3/140
  3. With excellent call outs from @sarakingdom, I'm changing up the goal measurements. Goal 1: Daily Movement! The pandemic has just been hard. So my goal is to do some sort of exercise daily, extra points if I do two sessions. I don't have any requirements for duration or exertion, just getting myself together to begin one of these things is a success. Walking/running Yoga Body weight exercises Dancing Etc? Measures of success: There are 35 days in this challenge, so I will divide my number of activities by 35 to find a percentage. I will grade myself on the typical scale 90% or higher is an A, etc. Goal 2: Nutrition Tracking!! I'm returning to this old nutritional chestnut and declare myself a Level 2. So for this challenge I will focus on Tracking (consistency struggle again!) and avoiding liquid calories (I'm fairly good about this!) Measures of success: 35 days in this challenge, and 2 things to do here. So I will divide my number of positive actions by 70 to find a percentage. 90% or higher is an A, etc. Goal 3: Introspection Time Daily time with a journal, sometimes with Tarot Card or other writing prompt assistance. Just getting better at checking in with myself. Measures of success: Same as goal 1, number of days journaled over 35. Rewards: Overall: A for the 5 weeks....... a weekend in a hotel with my journal, some books, and some quality skin care products. B for the 5 weeks.... spa day, however pandemic allows C for the 5 weeks... spa day at home, foam rollers, salt scrub, the works Exercise component: Extra stretch goal of 100 miles.... new shoes A for the 5 weeks: Begin a C25K to incorporate more running in my next challenge. B for the 5 weeks: Update my JustDance game C for the 5 weeks: Yoga mat Nutrition component: B or higher: continue to Level 3 Mindset component: B or higher: a Tarot reading class
  4. Yep, I can pick myself up. I just would rather stay on my feet and keep going! You're quite right here. I can sketch out a dream, but the reality is tougher. I can say that the goals don't make me anxious in themselves, it's the rest of my stressors that distract me toward "responsibilities" instead of self care. I'm working hard on the mental game, because it's brutal. So I've never wrote up my challenges like this. It seems like a pretty basic start for habit forming, but if you have advice I'd love to hear it! Thank you!
  5. Well, I use cards in a weird way. I consider whether the drawn card is something that I want or don't want in my life. Do I want more or less of it? What should I do to make that happen? And if I have the right amount, is there anything I can do to keep it that way? I have several recurring cards that cause me to stop and evaluate whether I'm guarding too much and need to be more open-hearted (2 of swords) and to remember my blessings and how far I've come (10 of cups). But if I had to choose a favorite, it would be the Queen of Cups. She's the one who you go to with a problem or a story, who always says "sit down at the kitchen counter and tell me all about it. I'll get you something to eat, and if you want advice I'll give it."
  6. I forgot about rewards!! Overall: A for the 5 weeks....... a weekend in a hotel with my journal, some books, and some quality skin care products. B for the 5 weeks.... spa day, however pandemic allows C for the 5 weeks... spa day at home, foam rollers, salt scrub, the works Exercise component: 100 miles.... new shoes A for the 5 weeks: Begin a C25K to incorporate more running in my next 100 miles. B for the 5 weeks: Update my Dance game C for the 5 weeks: Yoga mat Nutrition component: B or higher: continue to Level 3 Mindset component: B or higher: a Tarot reading class
  7. Hello! I went to Camp 2015 and 2016, and now visions of 2021 are dancing in my head.... Time to get back to business. Here's the thing. I'm really good at Respawning, great at goal setting, and terrible at follow through. I get distracted, anxious, and start procrastinating. I'm working on the mental game, so hopefully the rest of the wellness will follow. Goal 1: Daily Movement! The pandemic has just been hard. So my goal is to do some sort of exercise daily, extra pride if I do two sessions. I don't have any requirements for duration or exertion, just getting myself together to begin one of these things is a success. Walking/running Yoga Body weight exercises Dancing Etc? Measures of success: 100 miles in 5 weeks would be a star-spangled success! A for the day any time I do 2 of the above B for the day when I do 1 of the above Goal 2: Nutrition Tracking!! I'm returning to this old nutritional chestnut and declare myself a Level 2. So for this challenge I will focus on Tracking (consistency struggle again!) and avoiding liquid calories (I'm fairly good about this!) Measures of success: A for the day if I do both things: track my intake and avoid liquid calories. B for the day if I only do one. Goal 3: Introspection Time Daily time with a journal, sometimes with Tarot Card or other writing prompt assistance. Just getting better at checking in with myself. Measures of success: A for the day if I write anything at all
  8. great work for doing the thing anyway! And for learning one thing that doesn’t work so well! wishing you better sleep next time!
  9. Day 2: monday nutrition: tracked! exercise: 5k walk at lunch YNAB: yep!
  10. Absolutely! YNAB (or You Need A Budget) is a budgeting app where you plan with the money you have, instead of reconciling backwards. It takes a little bit to set up, but then you just enter each transaction as you spend, and make little budget/behavior adjustments in real time. The theory is that every dollar that you get has a purpose. You budget it for food or rent or bills, or (if you’re lucky) vacation, etc. When you go to the grocery store, you check the grocery budget and keep that in mind. If you overspend, you might need to shift budget from “dining out” or “music.” Seeing that when I choose an expensive meal I have less for movie tickets keeps me pretty dialed in. You can pre-set transactions, so I get a weekly vegetable box from my local farm coalition. YNAB is set up with that weekly charge. If I haven’t budgeted enough for that expense, it notifies me. There is a gauge “age of Money” which I find inspiring. It tells you how long money stays in your possession before you spend it. Seeing that number rise over time is really satisfying.
  11. Nutrition: tracked and didn’t drink calories. Could have had more water. Will work on that tomorrow. exercise: centergy class with a friend. finance tracking: done!
  12. Hi Nerd Fitness family! I’m CelebrateCeleste, sometimes called Poison, and I lost my path hard in the past couple years. So I’m beginning low key, and hoping to ramp up. My main goal is pretty ethereal right now, so I’m going to set a weight loss goal and develop quantifiable benchmarks for the way I want to feel. Main Goal: get back down to 140 pounds, the weight I was when I left Camp Nerd Fitness in 2015. Small goals: 1) maintain NF nutrition Level 2. This means tracking and reducing liquid calories. 2) exercise habit: doing some activity at lunch time, either taking a class at the gym or going for a walk. lifestyle goal: tracking finances using YNAB. this works really well for me when I keep it up. If I succeed (at least 90% of the days in this challenge), I’ll get the joy of moving up a level in nutrition and buy myself new walking shoes.
