  1. Alright, so last month I was awesome at doing my activities , not so awesome about posting about it. Sorry all. And as work ramps back up I anticipate that won't change. But I'll continue setting goals! Goal 1: Run 1 mile, 2 times per week, add in 1 sprint section (life goal: heart health) Goal 2: alignment workouts 3 times per week (life goal: spine health and less discomfort between chiropractor visits) Goal 3: finally hit it, lift 15 times in 5 weeks (life goal: capable muscles for doing everything) Goal 4: TV-less Wednesday (life goal: mental health, bonus: sleep health!) Let's do this
  2. Spanish right now. I've also started German, Mandarin, and Russian (kinda sorta). But i felt if I actually want to make progress I needed to pick just one and my (three times canceled) trip to Peru seemed like a good reason to stick with Spanish!
  3. Thanks for the call out @juliebarkley. I was so excited about posting and the community at the beginning, but I've let it fall off. I have t let my goals fall off though! I hit my goals for 4 weeks straight! Goal 1: Run (or try to) 1 mile, 2 times per week (life goal: heart health) - I hit the mile all 6 times! I didn't set any ground speed records, but I hit it Goal 2: Alignment workouts 3 times per week (life goal: spine health and less discomfort between chiropractor visits) - did all of these as well! I even bought some resistance bands and am adding some knee and ankle exercises as well. My mom has knee problems and I have super weak ankles leading to me twisting them a lot Goal 3: Lift 11 times in 4 weeks (life goal: capable muscles and self rescue if needed) - got 9 lifts in, as well as all the chin up challenge workouts Goal 4: Practice new skill 60 min/week (life goal: mental acuity) - this has been mostly a combo of Duolingo, sudoku, and crosswords all though I did get a piano lesson and some woodworking in there too! Goal 5: AT WEEK! -knocked out 4 hikes on the AT. They weren't particularly long (only 15 miles all week) but they were challenging none the less 1 week to go!
  4. Not really. I think I'm just not tucking my head enough/correctly. I don't hit it everytime
  5. Just did my 3 sets of forward parkour rolls today. Can't wait until I can do them without hitting my head. No damage done, just an unpleasant feeling
  6. I used the last challenge to reset myself as my life was changing. It was wonderful. It gave me an opportunity to steady myself out without overwhelming myself or completely losing progress. And it set me up great for this challenge as I'm sure this challenge will set you up great for your next one!
  7. All the good vibes being sent your way. You killed it and are just waiting on the results go prove it!
  8. You know what? Alright @juliebarkley let's do it. Although let's make today tomorrow. I already watched some videos on the parkour forward roll. I'll try some in the morning!
  9. Yup. We've all been there. Sometimes being able to slow the slide is great progress!
  10. That's crazy! I've never heard of pulling out important muscles like that for cosmetic surgery
  11. Long story short, I'm a rebel because I want an all around healthy life, forever. I don't want to ever be limited by my body's capabilities. I've seen 80 year olds running 5Ks. It's possible (and they are my heroes). So now that my travel schedule has calmed back down (to zero), we're going to pick up where we left off 2 challenges ago with (almost) the same goals: Goal 1: Run (or try to) 1 mile, 2 times per week (life goal: heart health) I don't do well with heat. Like at all. Like I went for a walk in 84F, feels like 88F, at night (so no sun impact) and I was done after half a mile. So we're going to try this. I would like at least one of these to be a full mile run Goal 2: Alignment workouts 3 times per week (life goal: spine health and less discomfort between chiropractor visits) this is a series of exercises recommended by my chiropractor. Last cycle I felt the difference. Let's make this a habit Goal 3: Lift 11 times in 4 weeks (life goal: capable muscles and self rescue if needed) imagine you are climbing a tree and a branch breaks, or you slip and start falling off a cliff. I want to be strong enough to pull/push myself to safety NF level 6 (still) I'm struggling with this one, both with passing the boss battle and now with encouraging myself to do it Goal 4: Practice new skill 60 min/week (life goal: mental acuity) I currently do 5-10 minutes of Spanish lessons every day courtesy of Duolingo I want to make sure I'm also practicing and learning other skills every week (maybe it's learning piano, or practicing sewing or woodworking) Goal 5: AT WEEK! So one of these 5 weeks I'll be hiking on the AT. All day trips, but they're still long hikes so I'm going to skip all running and workouts that week and say that 4 days of rigorous hiking is the equivalent. I'll still do my Spanish, but I don't know if I'll be able to do any other new skills. Maybe I'll get my brother to teach me more about engines... Here it goes! PS In my perfect life, I'm an assassin, not a rebel. Maybe once I lock these skills in I can try doing parkour in my backyard or something PPS Today I was asking my mom for help getting the appropriate size bridesmaids dress. She asked if I was planning on losing weight for the wedding... Yea, after seeing that look she laughed and remembered who she was talking to I am the perfect size and shape for me!
  12. Nice work chibi-nerd! Goals after my own heart. And there are plenty of nerds out there not taking the week "off" in between. (I sadly am not one of them)
  13. Week 5 update Goal 1: DONE! Apparently I lifted once, ran once, and walked once. That's 16 over 5 weeks! Goal 2: meh I filled my pitcher most days. Remembering to drink when I'm home is not my strong suit Goal 3: DONE! No additional dance classes, but I've done 3 in the past 5 weeks. Win! Yup this is it. I got about what I expected out of this month. Next month will be better goals and progress will be made!
  14. Week 3 and 4 update Yup, funky new schedule threw me for a loop. I haven't even thought about about this for the past 2 weeks. Let's see how I did... Goal 1: Looks like I did 1 workout, 2 runs, 4 walks and 1 dance class. That's 8 more bringing me to 13. Only 2 to go! I can definitely do that this week. Goal 2: I definitely haven't filled my water pitcher since I got home 4 days ago. Working on that. 6 out of 7 days I recorded (at least some) of my water while traveling! Goal 3: I believe last week was my 3rd dance class. Maybe I'll even be able to do one in person in 2 weeks!
  15. Week 2 update: The exercise slowed down a bit last week. I did 1 dance class and 1 lifting. I had a lot of trouble convincing myself to run in 90F weather. But I'm getting ready to go run now so I'll have a good start to the 4 I need to do this week to make up for a lost one last week. Water drinking has been on and off. I didn't fill my pitcher while at home and only realized around 4 pm that I hadn't had any water all day. Pitcher filling now so I'm working on that. Man I am not good at keeping healthy when my schedule changes
