  1. So I've completed the first week of my first 6-week challenge, and I scored a solid A across the board. None of it was particularly difficult, and I often found myself thinking about how much better I felt and wondering how I let so much slip and why I didn't just do more. Completing my challenge tasks didn't take me away from doing something else important or fun. It just meant I spent less time doing things that are mindless, pointless, and meaningless. I think I'm only going to post on this thread a couple of times a week rather than daily. It was cumbersome to say the same thing over
  2. Week 1 Roundup Main Quest 1. BBWW 2/2 = 100%, A 2. Walking 6/6 = 100%, A 3. Diet 7/7 = 100%, A Life Quest 1. Vacuum 2/2 = 100%, A 2. Kitchen/Dishes 7/7 = 100%, A 3. Scrub bathroom 1/1 = 100%, A So a great week! I'm wondering if I'm just really motivated or if I didn't set up a challenging enough challenge. With the exception of the hard line on sugar, all my challenge goals are things I did routinely back when I felt more in control of my life. For now I'm just going to follow the course I set for this challenge, although I may consider kicking it up a notch in a couple of weeks
  3. Mine went great! I did everything I set out to do. I'm not sure if that means I'm really motivated or if I'm not challenging myself enough in this challenge. Regardless, I feel good, better than I have for a few years.
  4. I did cartwheels today. For the first time in about a quarter of a century. My toddler was amazed, and so was I! My current 6-week challenge is about breaking bad habits, acting on my priorities, putting aside my excuses, and reawakening. Oh yeah, and beginning to get physically fit again. Today it dawned on me the next step of my life/body rehabilitation needs to be working on flexibility--mental and physical. I have a lot of mental roadblocks I've built for myself. I find myself thinking, "I can't <period>," rather than "I can't... yet" or "Why not?" I'm starting to create a
  5. I have more "Favorites" than I would be able to knit in my lifetime. It's kind of ridiculous. It's a general 15-in-15 for HaldeCraft and String Theory Colorworks. The only restrictions are that the projects have to be begun and completed this calendar year and have to be at least 50g of fiber. I only knit and crochet, but others are spinning and weaving as well. I got distracted by other interests, so I've only completed 6 projects so far. Most of my friends spin, and TDF always makes me want to learn. Have fun with it! Do it! They're a great project for experimentation and expressio
  6. When you've had some time to play with it, please post how you like the Fitbit. I'm intrigued by them but don't know if one would suit me. Have fun with the walk to Mordor challenge! I think that's such a cool goal!
  7. Thanks! We do indeed have similar hobbies and similar goals! I'm actually trying to balance doing this fitness challenge with a 15-in-15 over on Ravelry that I've been slacking on.
  8. I had a big personal win last night. I have an anxiety disorder, and yesterday evening I had a panic attack. After I tamed it a bit, I was left with the stress that brought it on. Now, in the not too distant past, I would have then fallen into a cycle of stress-eating--generally high fat, high sugar junk--and feeling bad about it, which continues the stress cycle. Last night I held it together. I gazed wistfully at a container of cookies, then put on my walking shoes and gathered the family to walk with me to run a couple of errands. I know we're only on day 3, but I heart this challeng
  9. Today Movement: Walked to/from grocery store with family, ~20 min there, FOREVER to walk back because the 2 1/2 year old insisted on pushing his sister in the stroller the whole way home Vacuumed whole house with the toy patrol and furniture moving that comes with itEating: check Other: Not much Today was not pleasant. I was short on sleep, and the kids were both having rough days as well. I was overstimulated and ended up having a panic attack while cooking dinner--hyperventalated and had to lie down on the floor to keep from passing out. Fun, fun, fun. Dinner was good--red lentil/gr
  10. Yesterday Movement: BBWW (increased to 12 lunge reps per set), 30 minute walk Eating: check Other: Scrubbed a bathroom. It was an all-day task. I also made a challenge log. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Plan for today Movement: 30 minute walk, vacuum (already done) Eating: no changes Other: Catch a breath. Girl seems to be trying to cut another tooth and was up frequently last night.
  11. I can't decide. I bounce from Buffy Summers to River Tam to Echo to Melinda May... Can I just say any Whedon badass woman?
  12. Mini-quest #1 completed.
  13. Mini-quest #1, SMART goals Here are some questions to put your goals to the test: Is your overall quest achievable (over a short or long period of time)? Is it reasonable? Achievable and reasonable. Do your 3 quests all build towards your main quest in little ways, or are you taking on too much? Do your quests have sub-quests or is it just one thing to focus on? They build in little ways. They are three good habits that will go a long way to improving my health. They each are a single habit to learn. Are your main goals realistic? Can you scale them to smaller steps to fit your
  14. Day 1. I'm ready! I made a log for each week of the challenge. Just for fun I weighed myself this morning, 173.6. While my overall goal right now is weight loss, I'm not really going to focus on numbers as long as the general trend is downward and my clothes keep getting looser. My focus right now is to build good habits and break the bad ones that got me to this point. My grading scale will be the one from high school a million years ago. Well, 21, but who's counting? A=93-100%, B=85-92, C=77-84, D=70-76, F=<70 At the end of the challenge, I will treat myself to a few ounces of
