"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result"
Last challenge was really an un-challenge for me. One "success" that started forming in the last couple weeks was consistency with an at-home strength training program at night. So my first instinct for this challenge was to say, "hey, this routine might actually be achievable. So let's toss it all out and chase after even bigger and shinier goals! Squirrel!"
However, this is the year of being a Scout, not a Ranger. Even though my little strength routine did not make me stronger (yet) consistency itself is a goal worth chasing. Or.. er... a cliff worth climbing. So continuing on from last challenge I will follow the same pattern, same goals and same routines and keep hoping for better results.
Daily Routine - Before sleep (12:30 default) wash my face and floss. No screens after. Lights out by 1am. In the morning get out of bed by 10am. Plan out my day over tea.
Strength training - 4 nights a week. Workout A (upper pull + core) Mon/Thurs. Workout B (upper push + glutes) Tues/Fri. Would days be better? Maybe, but late at night is when I will actually get it done. I may go to the gym on Sunday morning for deadlifts and squats.
Running - This didn't happen much last challenge. I will suck it up and bundle up and run outside Tues/Wed/Fri/Sat mornings. At least, I will continue to schedule it and hope it miraculously starts happening this time around.
Food Skills - Also didn't do much last challenge. I will soldier on anyways and follow the weekly skills practice.
I'm going to try and do it all, all the time. But each week I am only going to track one thing and that will be the focus for the week. Zero week doesn't count; my energy levels need time to adjust to the sudden winter.
Now start climbing...
