    Intek: Respawn

    The book was written by Mark Manson. He has another one that was recently published. Models is a great resource for not only dating but life. It was recommended by a friend at camp. Cooking at home does feel a little strange yet calming. I'm not expected to create perfection so that allows room to experiment and try out different things. I'll talk myself out of it like how most people talk themselves out of a workout if I don't get started. For the next few meal preps, I'm creating a menu to plan things out better. What works will stay and what doesn't gets notes for improvement.

    Intek: Respawn

    It's been a week so here's what's been happening. With the handstands workouts, I'm noticing that my hands and wrists are not as tight when I'm at work. Usually my hands feel stiff from grabbing and holding things all day. It's nice not having to stretch them out all the time. Morning stretching is still routine and keeping up with it for maintenance. I did notice my mid-back has been getting sore lately from bending over too much at work. Now I'm just bending at the knees to counter and prevent that from happening. On the mental side of things, I'm halfway through my book. Taking
  4. Because of Nerd Fitness... I learned a way to how make lifting heavy things fun, found out how to make the world my gym, and see my body is both stronger and more flexible than I perceived it to be. I've also met awesome people, both online and in person, that embrace their nerd nature and use it to improve themselves.

    Intek: Respawn

    Over the past few months, I've taken a few vacations for self development, some time off, and camp. It's been great, I learned a lot, and had fun. Leading up to these vacations, in between, and to now, I've been working way more than usual and it's taking a serious toll. Working too much, having very little time off, and not taking care of myself is what is leading up to this respawn and challenge. The overall goal is to create a self care plan that will be fine tuned over the next few months. Things are broken down into different categories based on needs. Here's what I'm doing.

    2 out of 3 ain't bad

    I decided to replace the brain training quest with a breathing training quest. My o2 Trainer has been sitting in its case for awhile. It's about time I bring it out and use it again. When I meditate, I'm noticing I like complete silence and darkness, if possible, to minimize sensory input. Everything gets shut off and the mind gets to flow more. This makes me wonder if a float tank (sensory deprivation tank) might be useful for me. Current streak is 41 days. I didn't have a day off last week but I did do my social quest today, as much as I hated it. I'm not at the point

    So I just finished The Dip. Didn't take as long as I thought it was going to. The hard part was just sitting down and getting it done. Now that the book is out of the way, time to move on to Get Off Your "But." I'm going to have to scrap the Elevate quest and replace it with something else. My secondary device died and my phone doesn't have enough space to install the game. I'll have something up in the next few days.
  10. Keep up the good work so far. I like the system you have set up.
  11. Following. How does a virtual run work when it comes to race day?
  12. Your habit style seems be more of an Abstainer than a Moderator. More "out of sight, out of mind" instead of "i can just have a little." No one way is better than the other. It's good that you're understanding how your habits are working for and against you. It'll help you build a system and set yourself up for success. There's 3 things I can tell you based on what I've read: If you've done it once, you can do it again. Everything you do is a decision you made whether you realize it or not. Choose to make things easier on future you. Everybody knows if you tal
  13. As a fellow NC resident, welcome to your first challenge! It looks like you have a good set of goals to start out with. Small, simple goals are the best to build habits. Keep it going!
  14. This month, I'm going to take it easy and not stack so much on my plate. Some crazy things happened last month and I put the challenge in the back burner. The goal for this month is progress and sustainability. Daily Meditation I reached 31 days in a row as of today. Keeping the streak going to 60. Daily Elevate (Brain Training Game) Gotta train your brain to stay sharp. This game is pretty fun and challenging. Breathing Exercises 3x a Week I'm going to make use of my o2 Trainer and do my breathing exercises more frequently. Training myself to
  15. This month is going to be some fun. Battle: Ready.
