Character Details

  1. Totally fell off the NF map in 2022, but more importantly, not off the cliff when it came to many of my goals! After a few too many health things, including closing out the year getting over COVID, I'm ready for some new beginnings. Body: I want to continue to cement my fitness goal as functional movement and increases when they come, rather than the more unhealthy cultural goals I implicitly hold. A. Continue 2-3 strength workouts per week; continue daily walks Goal: Introduce a flexibility program 3 times per week. B. Became too impulsive. Goal: Limit fast food, aiming for no more than once per week; fruit and/or vegetable per meal Mind Goal: Daily reading, professionally and leisurely Spirit: continued contemplative prayer Goal: New daily devotional pattern of reading and prayer Bonus Goal: I have begun a writing project. Spend three days a week, minimum, an hour each day.
  2. I'm hearing Yoda say, "Want or no want. Do." Challenge accepted! Daily professional and leisure reading Daily Prayer Push/Pull 4 days per week Let's get it on!
  3. Mixing it up a little, and so far, so good! Diet: Anticipating when I'll be out, and preparing healthier snacks in advance Exercise: Working up to 3.1 miles walk/run Professional: Big 3 of preparing for the next day Mind and Spirit: Reading for church and leisure
  4. It is, thanks! But what I've come to realize is that I like the idea of tracking more than I like tracking. I think it is a good thing, but I don't think it is my thing.
  5. For fun, Bernard Cornwell's Enemy of God, volume 2 of his King Arthur trilogy. For work, too many things, and yet never enough!
  6. Body: Fruit/Vegetable per meal ✅✅✅ Mind: Reading professionally and for leisure ✅✅✅✅ Spirit: Big 3 and 3 Gratitudes ✅✅✅✅ Community: Check in and respond to NF three times a week ✅✅
  7. Narrowing the field this time, hoping the fewer the better Body: Fruit/Vegetable per meal ✅ Mind: Reading professionally and for leisure ✅ Spirit: Big 3 and 3 Gratitudes ✅ Community: Check in and respond to NF three times a week ✅
  8. Amen! May it be so! Red1263, thank you for the reminder; I need it as it is easy for me to be hard on myself. So many things I think would be great to do (like tracking my challenges daily, or checking in/reporting more), but my lack of doing so makes me wonder how important those things really are for me. It's an experiment, and there is value in those things, but there is only so much time and energy.
  9. Thanks for checking in - and sorry I'm so terrible at checking the NF chat rooms. Yes, things in most ways are going swimmingly! Now that I'm reminded that this challenge ends in a few days, I'm going to have to up my challenges rather than stay stationary If you're walking down the right path and you're willing to keep walking, eventually you'll make progress. -Barack Obama Anyone who moves on, even a little, walks like Jesus on the water. -Antonio Machado ...keep walking....moving on, even a little
  10. Congratulations and blessings! May your home be a place of happiness and health, of contentment, generosity and hope, a home of creativity and kindness. May those who visit and those who live here know only blessing and peace. David Yohanan
  11. Isn't it though?! I hadn't thought about how tied to routine I am - or that perhaps I benefit from. Slowly making progress...
  12. Grateful for a new job, but its rhythms, compounded by COVID, means my routine is...not so routine right now! So I want to screw down on some things I've been doing well, but that have gotten a little loose over the past two+ weeks (can't blame it all on the new job 🙄). 30 activity minutes daily 8 glasses of water daily Daily Prayer Reading professionally and for leisure Big 3 and 3 Gratitudes
  13. How goes the winter wonderland?
  14. I have to learn to be okay with progress over perfection. I've been making it twice a week, but not the three I planned. Also, I read an interesting post somewhere about the mind-body connection that comes with strength training, which helped me start thinking about how I've been working that desire (mind-body connection), without knowing it.
