Yeah, I signed up years ago but have yet to actually complete a challenge. So I'm BACK. Main Quest: become a better belly dancer and lose some weight in the process Goal #1: lose at least 3-5 pounds by dancing at least four times a week for a minimum 30 minutes (so far I've lost 10 lbs in the past few months but I'm in the middle of a looong plateau stage right now) Goal #2: do Pilates to build strength in my arms and stomach, and pancake fold stretches for flexibility; at least four times a week for both (it seems a lot of transnational fusion belly dancers do a lot of muscle training using this stretch, so it's been something I've always wanted to be able to do) Goal #3: get better at hula hooping and learn at least ONE new technique by the end of this challenge (currently trying to hoop on the hips and knees but because I can't do either - HOOPING IS HARD - I might try to master isolations instead) EDIT - Goal #3.5: get back to studying languages (right now I got French, Japanese, and Fante to tackle!) - finish one book or set of online lessons by the time lockdown ends
Two weeks until the next challenge? Challenge accepted! MAIN QUEST To neatly pack my mental baggage for the next challenge period... Strip my calendar and HabitRPG of low-priority activities. Replace them with my current schedule of training [including blocked off times to train at home] and add to fill holes in practice. Ensure there is one day of recovery.Define goals in aerial hoop, contortion, and dance. Write daily homework to approach each of these goals (and if not already doing, start), brainstorm positive reinforcement reward systemsTake daily notes (even if minimal) in order to get into the habit of checking in with the world. Take pictures/video to illustrate SIDE QUESTS Life: Take photos - I require more pictorial evidence for alibis, progress tracking, promotion, and pleasureStudies: Continue studying ambitious rigging standards for weird, life-supporting art projectsFitness: Self-care - daily foam rolling, monthly massage/PT appts, hot packs MOTIVATION Haley Viloria, Sabrina Aganier, Bunny Holmes, Seanna Sharpe, Mike Estee, Karl Gillick Be the freak you wish to see in the circus
