  1. I love how you were very intentional about taking Atomic Habits into this!
  2. I have to say that with the launch of NF Prime this last week, this was almost left behind. I kept up on the same goals, but I thought I may go that way with the interaction. After scoping out the Prime I I see how it can be helpful to some, but for myself I already paid for all the programs they are giving away free and Discord appears like being in a chat room where I don't know anybody. The live videos can be helpful. Anyway...I want to finish this challenge(which is my biggest goal of this all). 42 total points possible this week 32 points scored 76% =C Current Grade Challenge Goals: Nutrition: Track Food Daily (35 Pts Possible) Week 1 7 Points Total Score= 7 pts 64 Oz Water Daily (35 Pts Possible) Week 1 4 pts Total Score= 4 pts NOTES: I was killing it on the water until it fell off toward the end of the week. Logging food but I came over the cals a couple days. The point right now is just to be logging them. I know when I do that it gets better. Physical: 10000 (35 Pts Possible) Week 1 7 pts Total Score= 7 pts 15 Strength Training Days (2.33 pts each = 35 pts possible rounding up) Week 1 0 pts Total Score= 0 pts NOTES: If I excelled at all this week in was int he step department. I sit a lot at work and since I'm off now I can be moving more. I got the steps in donig many walks, some geocaching, and yard work. BASELINE was 6215 average steps a day...I averaged 10933 steps a day! (Back patting) The strength training is still a bump for me. I was going to do 3 days a week, every other day. Still the goal. I may switch to my 3 days on one off routine toward the end of the challenge to pick up the points....first I have to start. Level Up Life Weapons-Practice a musical instrument at least 10 min daily (35 Pts Possible) Week 1 7 pts Total Score= 7 pts Read 10 pages (35 Pts Possible) Week 1 7 pts Total Score= 7 pts I have played with my bass every day this week. I just recently got one again after taking a couple decades off. I never had any lessons and was self taught...just good enough to play in some pretty bad bands back in the early 90s. Decided to take Fender up on their free offer for lessons. Did that for most of teh days but have tarted learning and practicing a song the last two. Back to the lessons tomorrow. The reading went well. I'm hoping to chip away at several partially read books I have going. Hope all is well in NF land for everyone else. On to another week...
  3. In danger of not getting my 10,000 today I had a choice of sitting in front of the TV or going out for four miles. I took the hard way I dusted Zombies run off in my phone. I have had it on there for well over a year and finally did the second mission today. Seems as good a time as any to start working these into my workouts toward those steps. The other stuff. I woke in the 3am hour and could not get back to sleep. After a meeting this morning for work I fell back asleep and felt like....what I would imagine a zombie feels like the rest of the day. I really felt like I was going to bomb everything today. Getting back from the walk/jog ( only a couple jogs to be honest..just enough to stay out of zombie reach) I just did my weapons practice with the Fender Play free lessons. I have played guitar and bass since high school but never took a lesson. decided to jump on the free bass lessons for weapons practice during this challenge. Now off to get my reading done and log the food... stay awesome!
  4. Off and running! A cold and windy day in Midwest USA. Getting my steps in was going to be a challenge today. I took off this morning for a walk and just thought about how it is okay that it is a challenge, I'm not walking because it is a nice day. I'm walking because I need to move. I had half my steps for the day done with that walk. The other half came throughout the day and another PM walk with my son. The toughest one here was the water. I am finishing that up as I type this. I nailed everything except strength training today, and that isn't scheduled until tomorrow. I have been off work for the last couple of weeks. Going to try to spend 8-10am on work stuff this week even though I don't have to. I need to get some sort of a schedule going again. Until tomorrow...
  5. Thanks for stopping in Flea! That's weird, I suppose it could be possible. Though I was around a log time before it happened. Support said the first time was around when they did an update and it happened to others too if I remember right. Second time was not "resolved." Oh well, it seems to be working now, we'll see if my content makes it through the challenge.

Progress Placeholder Challenge Goals: Nutrition: Track Food Daily (35 Pts Possible) Week 1 7 Points Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Total Score= 7 pts 64 Oz Water Daily (35 Pts Possible) Week 1 4 pts Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Total Score= 4 pts Physical: 10000 (35 Pts Possible) Week 1 7 pts Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Total Score= 7 pts 15 Strength Training Days (2.33 pts each = 35 pts possible rounding up) Week 1 0 pts Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Total Score= 0 pts Level Up Life Weapons-Practice a musical instrument at least 10 min daily (35 Pts Possible) Week 1 7 pts Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Total Score= 7 pts Read 10 pages (35 Pts Possible) Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Total Score= 7 pts
  7. It's been a looong time. I left here without really thinking I would come back. On a couple of occasions all of my stuff disappeared from the site. The other day I stopped in to see what was up with this down time in the world and noticed another challenge was beginning. With that, I thought maybe this would help me along as the last two weeks at home have not seen me really get started on all the "plans" of good intentions I would do. Given the time I have, I wanted to be intentional about doing some of the things that I love to do now that time was not an issue. I have not been doing well, so I want to embed some of these into the challenge. Baseline 3/27/20 I have not been tracking my food at all. When I do I drop pounds without even making major changes. Awareness is a great weapon. Water intake is terrible. I don't remember the last time I took in 64 ounces in a day. While I have been getting out and walking each day this week, my daily average of steps over the last 28 days according to Fitbit data is 6215 steps. I found out two weeks ago I would be off work. FANTASTIC! I can get in that strength training! Nope, not once. I know this is key to me being who I want to be. I have guitars and a bass laying around, again telling myself I have the time. Committing to a minimum of 10 minutes gets the ball rolling. So much reading I want to do, whether it is for pleasure, personal development, or professional development. I have done none over the last two weeks. Committing to 10 pages is a small enough number and I know I will keep going once started. Challenge Goals: Nutrition: Track Food Daily (35 Pts Possible) 64 Oz Water Daily (35 Pts Possible) Physical: 10000 (35 Pts Possible) 15 Strength Training Days (2.33 pts each = 35 pts possible rounding up) Level Up Life Weapons-Practice a musical instrument at least 10 min daily (35 Pts Possible) Read 10 pages (35 Pts Possible) Grades & Loot: 189-210= A [Loot- $50 to apply to something that fits my goal areas.] 168-188= B [Loot- $25 to apply to something that fits my goal areas.] 147-167= C [Loot- Nope.] 126-146= D [Loot- Nope.] 0-125=F [Loot- Nope.]
  8. I believe this is my favorite post of yours ever.
  9. It has been some time since I have been in here. I older, slower, more tired, all the other stuff...BUT ITS SPRING! Today was the most productive day I have had in a long time. I decided to come in here and found that a new challenge is starting. NICE! I just need to get moving again and eating things that make me feel better. A few weeks ago my son (15) and I signed up for a Warrior Dash race with the hopes that would push us. We have done nothing. The race will be two weeks after this challenge. Nutrition: 64 oz water a day (28 pts possible) Physical: 10000 Steps per day (28 Pts possible) Level Up Life Read 10 Pages of a Book Per Day (28 pts possible) Loot: TBD
  10. Thanks. I have been bored out of my mind. I feel like I can be at work, but I'm reminded as soon as I'm up and moving around that I'm not 100%.
  11. Thank you for sharing your story. My advice, finish your challenge no matter how much you fall off track. Return next month and build on how you did this month if need be. Advice I need to follow myself. Missing some days can make me feel like I failed, but the real failure is when I just stop because of it.
  12. Started off great Monday! Then Monday night happened. Didn't feel all that hot Monday night and went to bed early. Woke up about 2pm feeling like my whole head was swollen. Had a 7am meeting at work, after that was done about 9 I went home. Went to the Dr. to find I had Influenza A and was ordered home and rest for the rest of the week. On top of that, a separate issue that was leading to the headache was a tooth thing...that I really can't get taken care of until after this week because I'm contagious. So anyway, this isn't my cop-out post. Just a delay and restructure of my challenge next week. NOt like I don't have the time to plan it
  13. Looking at the dates on this challenge I noticed this will lead right up until the time Elf will be a regular thing on TV. With that, we have a challenge dedicated to Buddy. That's about as far as i go with the theme thing as I'm trying to cram this in before I go to bed. I feel like I have been living off the elves four main food groups of candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup. It's not a thanksgiving hangover, just been bogged down all fall. as I put in the usual 64 oz water, I noticed i can't remember the last time i just drank water. It's all come in the form of coffee every day. I know getting back to tracking my food will only help me being mindful of what I'm taking in. I'm still on a huge slump of not weight training since brain surgery over a year ago. Intend to pick up the NF Academy workouts. I have only averaged 4909 steps a day the last 28 days. Pretty pathetic. Being intentional about taking a walk should raise that significantly so 25% increase should be obtainable. I have soooo many projects going both at home and work, I'm scattered. I have tried Bullet Journaling several times but drop it after a few days. I currently use google calendar, a work calendar, a paper planner, sticky notes, Google Keep for ToDo, Habitica for ToDo, and iPhone reminders. I need to reel this in a bit and figure something out. I figure finishing the Bullet Journal Method book before the ned of the year I will give it one more shot to start next year off. The meditation piece I was doing great at in September and October, but that fell off again. Nutrition 64 oz of water per day (28 Pts) Track Food (28 pts) Fitness Move -+25% avg steps this 28 days= 6136 Avg. (1pt per +1%= 25 pts possible) Move Things- 12 days of strength training (2pts each= 24 pts possible) Level Up Life Read 10 Pages per day from The Bullet Journal Method (1 pts per= 28 pts possible) Meditate (1 pts per= 28 pts possible) Extra Credit 1/2 point per day check in here 145-161 = A (LOOT=TBD ) 129-144 = B (LOOT=TBD ) 113-128 = C (LOOT =TBD )
  14. Laughing is awesome! Taking in 20 minutes of a sitcom can do wonders. I'm a Seinfeld guy from way back. The Office and Parks & Rec do it for me just about every time.
