    A Druid's Battle Log

    Hello. Just popping in. I am admiring your intellectual goals. I often feel like my reading distracts me from my other goals...but it is good to see reading as valued and important!

    Exercise goals are settling in over the past two weeks. I logged 6/7 days for both weeks: Active 6/6 (week1) and 6/6 (week2) Strength 2/6 and 3/6. Stretch 2/6 and 3/6. Mobility 4/6 and 3/6 I've upped my strength goal to be consistent - pushups and planks every other day. I've added negative pushups to the mix instead of just doing max (ha! that's like five) full pushups. Mobility goal is just to sit down/stand up 10 times a day. It doesn't take long, so I need to find a time to do that more consistently - preferable before bedtime when motivation is lacking. Mobility blooper this week. I work as a children's librarian. This is one of the big reasons I want to focus on getting up and down gracefully. I spend time playing with small children on the floor (and dealing with books on the bottom shelves). Baby/toddler storytime is twice a week. I usually sit on a chair to read, but one of my toddlers had climbed on it, so I sat on the floor instead. When we did a rhyme to "pop up" I literally wobbled over. So embarrassing! I need to stop using old knees as an excuse. There are grandmas in my crowd who pop up with no problem. I can do this!!!

    Seriously enjoyed going out for dessert with my son last night. I ordered carrot cake. I LOVE carrot cake. It turned out to be a triple layer carrot cheesecake. I ate the bit that I wanted and shared the rest with my son. No guilt! In fact, I feel great about spending the time with him.

    Sooooooo, my challenges have slowly lost steam over the past few months. I'm online a heck of a lot less thanks mostly to work being a whole lot more demanding. And yet I yearn to be here, and wear my NF hoodie with pride! So, a battle log it is. I need to be here when I can. And say things like: 1. My kid accused me of being a wimpy ranger when asked to help with the extension ladder. So, I pulled the darn thing off the wall and carried it over my shoulder. Fifteen minutes later, a tree swing was swinging high. 2. I ran an easy 5k around the neighborhood by accident - I remembered the wrong route, and thought I was running far less. 3. I took and ACED the cub scout camp swim test after many years of avoiding the plunge. 4. I tore up my hands on the playground yesterday. Hot monkey bars are no joke. So I'm back here in the battle logs to have a base to Ranger On and catch up with amazing rebels as inspiration and time permits.
