    If I Only Had the Time...

    Ouch, I took a hit this week. I was rolling pretty good the zero week and then the start of the challenge....then fizzle. The day before I left for a trip and then the two days on the road took a toll. Gut check time. This is when I normally come back next month. However, I set this challenge up so if I fell off it wasn't a total failure and I could get back on track. I'm on vacation this week in a place where I love to get out and do things. That aligns well with what I have to do to rack up some points. Plan for the day. Its 6am. I'm going to take a ride downtown and go for my intentional walk around the lake. I'm going to go to my favorite coffee spot and enjoy their bottomless cup while I do some writing and scouting out things to do the rest of the week. There will be geocaching, possibly a hike. Temps are supposed to be around 100 early afternoon so that is when I look to head in doors to the gym for some strength training. If I can get even close to all of that I will be chalking up some points today. Go team me. BREAK!

    If I Only Had the Time...

    13 hours on the road today. Between all that sitting in a drivers seat, terrible road food choices, and spending yesterday getting ready for the trip, there could be a slide happening that I want to get out ahead of. I did do my intentional walk, food logging, and geocaching when I arrived at the hotel, so it isn't a total loss. I'm running about 50% on my fitness and nutrition for the week. I'll be arriving at my destination in the morning (Austin, TX). That will give me a chance to do a lot of the Level Up Your Life stuff. My goal is to really hit the go somewhere new and do something new there. I used to live there and plan to go back and do some of my favorite things/places, but want some new experiences as well. Pretty disappointed my mountain bike didn't fit inside the car. I had plans for that! However, we are stopping at Dealey Plaza in Dallas on the way back and I didn't want it hanging out on a carrier on that back unsupervised. The new experience outweighs riding the same trails I have rode several time.

    Anything with coconut milk just tastes like coconut. I remember once eating dinner at my mother-in-law's and took a bite of mashed potatoes. May as well of been mashed coconut. She never thought others may not be used to that flavor as she used it i everything.

    AWESOME! I did mine too. That is a flaw of mine as well, thinking it has to be X amount of time.

    On another note, meditating with a toothache REALLY lets you tune into that throbbing pain

    Just thought I would offer. I know I like to do things on my own time table so I wasn't trying to push.

    Theria is kindling her spark

    I like how you broke done by the weeks. I also like your SPARK idea as just leaving that word on a post-it or setting a reminder with that word should light a...spark for you.

    Tateman Moves in and gets settled

    Sounds like you have a lot going on. I started IF last week. How long did you do it before and what did you like/dislike?

    RIGHT!?!?! At least their light roast wasn't bad. Sometimes it is like colored water I hope the tooth thing works out too. I think about your fiasco. I leave on a trip for a week on Saturday and REALLY don't want to be dealing with it. Thanks! I think I did good setting up the LUL as random things that can be done.

    If I Only Had the Time...

    ...and we are off! I looked forward to the launch of the challenge for a week only to fizzle out on day one. Tooth ache knocking me out. Can't get in to the dentist until tomorrow afternoon. I guess it wasn't really a fizzle out, but I already had a streak of a week going on the water that was broken. I did get a couple from the Level Up Life category. I stopped into a coffee shop I had not been in and read a few chapters from a book I'm just starting. Decent little place. However...I always order "the darkest roast you have" and in there I get the "we have a light roast." It comes across the same way as When you order a diet pepsi and the staff says, "we have diet coke" in a "its the same thing" tone. I know they have what they have but it is about the delivery. Light roast and dark roast are not the same thing. Plan for today Get some strength training in before the tooth starts throbbing. Tends to be worse later int he day. Knock out the first bottle of water this morning.

    It should just have a little red notification letting you know you have a message. I had three of them I was avoiding opening myself until today.

    If I Only Had the Time...

    If I only had the time I would do stuff. Stuff that has me more active, stuff that is healthier for me, and stuff that I love to do but quit doing somewhere along the way for some reason. I tell myself sometimes that I don't have time. Sometimes I don't tell myself that but just found myself wrapped up in other things. Either way, I'm not prioritizing things. As it turns out, I have the time right now. For the next month and a half I'm off work since I work in education. In early June I went on a 10 day hiking trip chaperoning high school kids at five National Parks in Utah. That was awesome, however I have done pretty much nothing since returning. What I hope to do with this challenge is spend time doing things I love and establishing habits I can take into the next school year in August. Nutrition Basics. 64 oz of water per day (28 Pts) Track Food (28 pts) Fitness More basics. The strength training is huge as I have not been able to get back into it since brain surgery last September. Move- 5 Min Intentional Walk (28 Pts) Move Things- 12 days of strength training (2pts each= 24 pts possible) Level Up Life by Doing Stuff Recently I made a list of what I would do if I had more time with the idea of I would do more of them now since I have more time this summer. That list is as far as I have got. With that, I added some of them below. A point for each time I do one.

I’m pretty frugal as I grew up with no money and think I shouldn’t buy things for myself unless needed. Since the new store opened I have wanted one of the Performance T-Shirts. Thinking of that, I decided to go with NF Gear at each grade for loot as a show of support and appreciation for what Nerd Fitness has done for me over the last couple of years.
