  1. Thanks for the encouragement and checking in! I've just returned from vacation! It was lovely and I did okay on goals. Honestly much better than I usually do, but it'll be good to be back in a routine. And I'm feeling renewed and refocused after a break, so that feels like a win. Week 1: Meditation/Yoga: 3 days. Not great. Step Goal: 6 days. So close! Run 3 Days per Week: 2 running days. Not quite, but I did have a ski day, so not all is lost. I'm doing a slow C25K, where I'm repeating each week. I decided to skip the second round of Week 3 because I felt strong!
  2. Hi everyone! Last year, I did several challenges as a Warrior, but I'm thinking the versatility of the Rangers might make it a better guild for me! 2019 was a hell of a year, and I'm excited for a new leaf. One word that is sticking in my brain about my goals is Restore. I've been really anxious and have let a lot of things that are important to me drop in the last couple of years. In some ways, it was necessary because I needed to prioritize some basics (i.e. career and family stuff). But I'm feeling more settled and ready to restore some of the things that I've inadvertently
  3. Challenge Wrap Up: 1. Do something active every day, preferably for 30 minutes. Overall success! Not really doing any kind of intelligent programming, but I'm back in the habit of doing something almost every day. So mission accomplished. 2. Say no to something at work. Literally, just saying no once, and I'll be happy for the challenge. Just the one. But I'm counting it. 3. Sleep 7 hours per night, 6 days per week. Fail. But getting better quality sleep, so not as tragic as it could have been. Still need to get better with time management. 4.
  4. Late Week 3 Wrap Up! 1. Do something active every day, preferably for 30 minutes. Not 100%, but doing pretty well at this! Between swimming and sneaking away to the office gym, this is going well. I've also done a few lazy stretch sessions, which I'm counting for this challenge. So the only day I didn't do anything was Sunday--recovering from a good friend's wedding festivities. Although, I think we danced past midnight, so maybe I can count that for Sunday... 2. Say no to something at work. Literally, just saying no once, and I'll be happy for the challenge. Not
  5. Thanks for this. It's good to remember to be patient...
  6. Week 2 Wrap Up! 1. Do something active every day, preferably for 30 minutes. Medium. Because I'm counting stretching and walking, I think I got 6 days, so okay. But I've made progress in setting myself up for success going forward. On the swimming side, I'm feeling pretty good about the progress there, and found a great set of workouts to follow for the next month or so. On the strength side, I've decided to do some less heavy work for a bit--mostly focusing on form and fixing imbalances, which is something I can do at the office gym for now. (e.g. I lean too far forward on my s
  7. I just love these approaches to anxiety so, so much. I need a reminder of this on a sticky note in my office. . . And my car. . . And probably at home.
  8. I swam yesterday! I got lucky and didn't have to share a lane, which was cool. It seems like a lot of triathletes training. I'll be curious to see if that's a Wednesday thing (like Wednesday is swim workout day) or if that's always the case). I like the rec center I went to--partly because it has a hot tub and sauna. But I want to try to go to a different rec center that has more lanes, but that pool is used for swim teams/lessons/etc., so it's booked more often. I think a combo is probably going to be the best option. I think swimming can be hard to get into. I think it can definitely b
  9. This is such a great thought. I really do need to just create some space to let my brain stew on stuff. I also kind of wish I could take a quick nap in the middle of the day for the same reason, but I can't really see how I could pull that off... Week 1 Wrap Up: 1. Do something active every day, preferably for 30 minutes. I've done well on this! And in a fun way! Over the 4th of July holiday, we did a 5K and went stand up paddle boarding at a lake in the mountains! I've also re-discovered swimming. It felt soo good--I felt so much looser after. It's the first t
  10. Ha! That makes sense. But I can also see not wanting to wander around when you're getting eaten alive... So either way works? Ah! Thank you! I forget about Nia Shanks and I should not... I think I've liked everything I've read from her.
  11. Quick Zero Week Check In! I won't go over goals in detail for zero week, but I did try to build up some momentum. I did something active every day but Friday. And yesterday is being sort of generous... I did some stretching, but it counts! Close-ish on sleep. According to the fitbit, I'm getting about 6.5 hours per night, which does mean I'm in bed at least 7 hours, so that counts for something. Water is okay. As long as I remember to bring my big water bottle to work, I do okay, otherwise I forget. So, lesson learned. Saying no to things at work... not so much. I did skip out on a
  12. Good point on the bugs. I forget sometimes that I'm pretty lucky in that regard. We have some, but it's not terrible. As for the battery, if you leave on the "augmented reality," it kills the battery really quickly. Turning that off helps alot, but it is still a drain for sure.
  13. I want to know this as well. It's advertised everywhere on my phone, and it annoys me. It's a Harry Potter version of Pokemon Go. Made by the same people. It's a silly and fun reason to go wander around outside to look for stuff and play the game. A few of my family members and a couple of friends are into it too, so it's been a good excuse to go for walks with them too. (The dog hates it though. "Why are we stopping so much?!")
  14. OOOOkkkay. I'm back! With Brooklyn 99 gifs, as promised. Yea, I was. It's been a good/bad time over here! Things are fine, but anything extra just seemed like too much for a little while there. Work has exploded with busy-ness and there's been a fair amount of personal stuff going on too. So I went into survival mode, mixed with comfort food, more alcohol (not a ton, just more frequent than usual for me), and laziness. As anyone could have predicted, I'm not sleeping as well, my aches and pains are back, and I'm generally ju
  15. Failing so hard this challenge. I'm going to tap out for the rest of this one and just be for a while. I'll be back for the next one with more Brooklyn 99 gifs!!
