  2. Task Master RedStone

    HAPPY ZERO WEEK! Once again I was considering not doing a challenge. I'm not 100% sure on why I've been meh on the challenge front, but I think it has something to do with being over/underwhelmed in that - treading water - kinda way. I appreciate those of you who have reached out to check on me, wondering why I'm not rocking zero week like we all know I love to do. ZERO WEEK!!!!!! ZEROOOOH WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK But I digress. I really do have some things I need to do. I think I'm a tad overwhelmed with the tasks ahead of me, and lethargy and laziness have been settling on my shoulders. I seem to be on the same field trip to Six Flags as @Taddea Zhaan with the rollercoaster highs and lows with everything going on... One week I'm up with a ton of DO THE THINGS energy, the next I'm feeling desperate to recover. SO. I need to break things down a bit. I find that once things get going, the tasks aren't nearly as enormously insurmountable as they first seemed. CLEAN THE FUCKING HOUSE Not like, sweep or dust. CLEAN OUT THE FUCKING HOUSE AND GET READY/MOTIVATED TO MOVE. Here is the spoiler/painful version of everything that needs to get done that will absolutely take more than a month to do. MAAAAAAN seeing that all in one place! No wonder I'm overwhelmed. Getting this biz done means breaking it into small bites. This challenge I will create a list of small, bite size tasks that chip away at this megalith that's been weighing me down. I will attack with gusto, at least 2 items on that list every week. I like the idea of working on the list for a few minutes every morning as a way to seize control of the day. I will try this in the beginning and see how it is. COACH STUFF Next up. 20 Seconds in spoiler cause dayum. TLDR: connect with Coach Lauree, move forward as appropriate. TOUCH HANDS In workout news, I did my thing until evil tooth came out, then I rested like a good girl. Then I got back to work and sort of was super blah and uninspired by it until I touched hands (kung fu stuff) with a willing coworker/lifter bro. After a short session I hit the weight room with great focus and energy and verve, all the things! It was a great workout and I really enjoyed it, and touching hands kicked it off. I'm going to strive to touch hands with someone once a week for this challenge. This may be a little challenging, but I think I can make it happen with at least coworkers. ONE AND DONE Contact the finance guy and the realtor I was recently referred to. This requires getting Mr Red involved. Involve Mr Red. Make him do whatever he has to do to get things started. Do it. This is so easy. Just. Fucking. Do. It. SELFIES Lastly, I've been having some body image pushback. One selfie set per week. Bonus points for vlogs. (Remember when I used to do vlogs???) You got it. - we're doing a selfie challenge! And by we I mean me. Unless you want to join me? It's a great practice for anyone struggling with body image issues, truly, my first time was eye opening! I HEREBY CHALLENGE YOU TO POST EMPOWERING SELFIES ON YOUR CHALLENGE!!! 1 REDSTONE POINT PER SELFIE Just like, tag me on it and I'll keep track somehow. Cause I just decided I will. So anyhoo... in the spirit of Zero week...

  5. Mike Wazowski: Becoming Unbreakable?

    I have been busy painting stones! I decided to attach this practice to my daily gratitude goal and started an instagram just for that. You can kind of see my progress with technique and stuff, it's only been a few weeks so far but I'm really enjoying it LOL

    Greetings, welcome and salutations to the NF Art Gallery! This is a place to post images of visual artwork and have some chats about your thoughts and processes if you like! So many of us are visually oriented, after some chats with @Luciana Valerosa Culming we thought it would be fun to have a regular place to share artwork. No matter your medium, style or experience level, this is the spot for sharing your work! And if you just want to sort of explore your thoughts visually, this art journal method is pretty cool to try Looking forward to seeing everyone's work!
  8. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Steeling themselves above the cliffs of a frozen waterfall, a band of Warriors gather in search of the goddess Rán. It had been an arduous journey to this point - our hero's needing to transverse the frozen plight sent over all of Midgard by Br0ki - snow, ice, wind and darkness spread to every corner, showing no sign of melting into the much anticipated Spring. If the ground was not soon ready to be tilled for planting, the land would see much hardship in the year to come. On a lead from a trusted advisor, our hero's set out to find the water goddess in hopes of convincing her to change the elemental state of the grey lands, but lo, when they called out to her in the stillness of frozen mist and spray, only the faintest response could be heard from deep beneath the solid foss. "That rascal Br0ki!!! He must be stopped! Help me break free of my frozen prison and I shall help you in return. It is too cold to make an offering of water to this place, you must imbibe every drop so that it stays in it's liquid state. Consume enough and I will break through the ice and send water down into the lands." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We will be working together as a guild to overcome the frozen blight Br0ki's has sent. Each week, a new task will be put forth for our band of Warriors to achieve together, with themes of volume, reps, distance, weight and time in mind. This first week is volume: collectively consume 3,000 ounces of water to free Rán! Track your progress in the Spreadsheet here. And remember! Mankind is counting on you! We need AS MANY NERDS AS POSSIBLE! AMNAP will see us through to a bountiful harvest!
