  1. Honestly, I'm not even trying to win the race, I'm just focusing on consistency. If I eat good food and move I win. Consistency is so much more important than performance. Furthermore, this is a positive look at consistency. I don't lose points for not doing things on a day, I get points for days I do them. That simple. Right now I'm doing darebee's 30 days of LIIT (Low Impact Interval Training). I assume they mean 30 days in a row, but I'm not letting perfect get in the way of good. Each day I do the workout I win. I'm currently on day four or five (haven't worked out the last three days and that's ok). When I get done I'll figure out what's next. Cooking is helpful, cooking real food even more so. I'm continuing to learn how to be gentle with myself. Last challenge I left one job and started another. I'm back on days, I sleep at night, I have weekends off (except when I'm on call). Now that I'm no longer angsting about a bad schedule I'm more aware of other stresses that were always there, but were ignored in light of larger issues. One new stressor is learning how to do a new-ish job; there is much more scrutiny of Chaplain charting in Hospice work than in Hospitals. It's nice to feel this stress though, it's from wanting to learn to do a good job rather than fear of failure. The former is new to me, and much more fun than the latter. I'm noticing a change in how I interact on the forums too, and I like this. The new job also is helping me interact better with my mother in law, who has Vascular Dementia and is on hospice care with another company than the one I work for. Many of my patients have a similar condition, and learning to work with them has helped me be with her. I like this. Blessings friend, your friendly neighbor hood paladin was never away, but even so I feel like I'm back. I bring hope to the hopeless. I bring love to the forsaken. I speak truth to lies. I shine light in the darkness.
  2. Just today I got a verbal job offer about two hours after the interview ended. I posted in my other thread I am done with nightshifts in two weeks, which I hope is true, but I won't give my two weeks notice till I get the offical offer in writing (over email) and depending on the timing might have to do a third week. I have been promised, however, I can start my new job on August 15th. I am currently a hospital chaplain working nightshift three nights a week (with a dayshift every week as well). That's about to change, I'll be going to work for a Hospice, and have day shift Monday through Friday (I haven't had weekends fully off in ten years). That means adjusting to a new schedule. I'll have to figure out when to workout, how cooking is going to go, when to get groceries, etc. One of the few benefits of a weird schedule is the ability to get those things done when everyone else is at work. So for the first half of the challenge I'll keep doing what I have been doing. Then I'll figure out how to make things work with a normal schedule. Cooking is important. Strength training is important. Mobility work is important. The one new thing I want to do is make sure I do neck stretches, and 30 seconds each of forward fold and squat hold every day.
  3. Saturday of Zero week I turn 42, which makes the theme for this challenge rather easy to pick. I am currently working nightshifts as a hospital chaplain, looking to move into Hospice Chaplaincy, and am waiting to hear back after an interview with a hospice agency. If I get it, it would mean for the first time in almost ten years I would have a regular, Monday Through Friday dayshift job. If I do get it, I'll have to revamp everything, and that's ok. I will plan a challenge for the situation I'm in today. Find a way to Strength train twice a week. Cook. Stretch. Sleep. Doing those four things are the best things I can do to be healthy right now.
  4. Those who followed my last challenge know I have some STUFF going on, and it's brought up some anxiety/depression. Therefore, without neglecting physical habits, I'm doing a mental health challenge. First, the physical stuff: Strength training 2x week Cook as often as possible I'm in different facilities for work, which means I'll easily get steps on the days I'm at work Stretch on non lift days when not at work, preferably stretch on work days as well (I stretch to cool down after strength workouts) Now, the Mental health Stuff Gratitude: Post three things for which I am grateful on my updates Imagine myself happy. Spend 30 seconds each day imagining myself happy. At one point a few years ago a therapist said when you do this your brain codes it as a memory and it can help overall mood and be a coping skill for anxiety Self-Affirmation: Write three nice things about myself when I do my updates. That should about cover it
  5. I write this challenge at the end of a successful Pajama day and am feeling content and mellow. I think that means let's stick with what's working. Nutrition: Imma Keep Cooking Strength: Imma Keep Powerlifting Technically, as a member of the clergy, I have to quibble with this, but I can't seem to remember why... Sleep: This is important, don't not do it LOTR Gifs: Remember Them Happy Challenge everyone!
  6. One of the things that's become revealed to me, both in personal reflection and in my spiritual practices, is the wholesome goodness of focusing on the present and being grateful for what I have now. In addiy tion, focusingm on the now and gratitude for what I already have leads naturally to good Stewardship of that which has been entrusted. I have an amazing wife. I'm grateful for Sra. Tanque. Our relationship is a good thing, and intentional work on the relationship is no less than it deserves I have an amazing daughter. Remembering how grateful I am to have her in my life lends itself into more intentional focus on being a good father. I have a good job, and schedule that is a two edged sword. I like chaplaining and visiting sick people. I have an odd schedule, and I can either focus on what I don't like about it, or I can reflect on all the benefits that come with being off during the week, like getting to the gym during business hours when it isn't as busy. I have an awesome body, and I can be grateful for all it can do and take good care of it by lifting and stretching. I have a good kitchen, and I can honor it by cooking good food for me and my family. I have amazing friends on here. I'll keep following their threads.
  7. Consistency was something I really worked on when I got back to the forums lo back in 2015. Consistency will serve me well now. I'm making it a focus this challenge because there are many things upcoming that will disrupt routine and make consistency difficult. I joined the YMCA in December, hoping to get acclimated to this particular gym and to get through initial DOMS before the resolutioners hit in January. This has been successful. A typical week looks like this: No workout on Sunday but get steps (7k) in thanks to work Lift on Monday Walk on Tuesday Lift on Wednesday Focus on getting steps at work on Thursday and Friday Rest Saturday. Zero week and week 1 of this week are not typical. Little Bit has been sick, and while we are hoping she gets over it soon, it is a variable. There is a family get together on the 28th, though that's in the evening. Also, Little Bit is home all week. If I can lift Monday and Wednesday, all is well and good. If I can't lift Monday, I'll shoot for Tuesday, and shift Wednesday's workout to Saturday. Same goes if I can lift Monday but Not Wednesday. Week 1 Little Bit is off from day school on Monday But Sra. Tanque and I have to work. Coordinating care with my parents (driving there and back) may complicate matters, but I'll shoot for the same contingency plan as zero week. The other variable is the New Years Resolution crowd all month long. I'm not avoiding the gym, but I am expecting to need some flexibility on my part for January while I'm at the gym. So, the plan is lift days on Mondays and Wednesdays, Walks on Tuesdays, being active at work Sundays, Thursdays and Fridays, and using Saturday as a catch-up day if needed.
  8. After seeing a deadlift gif on imgur I realized I very much want to get back to barbell training. I researched options and found that the YMCA two miles from my house is reasonable and has a ton of amenities, including three deadlift platforms and several squat racks, as well as a few benches. I've fizzeled with consistency on KettleBells, which I won't eliminate, but it's time to return to powerlifting. Because of budgeting reasons I won't join the Y until the first of the month, and because of scheduling reasons it probably won't be till Monday of next week that I get in for a workout. Having said that, I am ready to get back over, under, in front of, and other prepositions relating to the position of the barbell. I'll do KettleBells for zero week, and keep up with step goals, as well as cooking. I don't get as into describing the cooking process as I used to, but be warned, this is not a thread to read when you are hungry. I'm also dealing with pre-diabetes A1C levels, so I will not have dessert or candy except on Christmas day (or whenever we get together, I'll work the afternoon of Christmas Day). The plan for the mini challenge is to work out a 5x5 plan for barbell lifts. What I'm planning is to start with Squats on Monday, and Dumbell OHP with Dumbell Bent over Rows, then on Wednesday do Deadlifts and Bench. I also plan to throw some accessories and some bodyweight warm ups in there. My hope is to get a routine going so when the flood of New years Resolutioners hits in January I'm not one of them but actually know what I'm doing so I can get in and out. The way my schedule works Friday would be very difficult to get to the gym without seriously disrupting my sleep, and I don't sleep enough as it is. Saturday is family day, it's the only day everyone is off work and school. I might experiment with doing swings on Fridays at some point in the day. I'm going to keep my step goal at seven thousand steps a day for this challenge, with Saturday as a rest day.
  9. I had my A1C checked for my upcoming physical on Tuesday, and it read 5.9, which is right in the middle of the pre-diabetes range. This happened two years ago after too much candy during the early days of the lock down, and it went away after I stopped eating candy and sweets. That's the plan again. I work as a hospital chaplain in a city with some of the worst diabetes rates in the nation. I see people living with dialysis, blindness, and amputations every day. That won't be me. Steps is something I've made a priority recently. Last challenge my target was 6500 steps every day. In the process of writing this challenge I set my target to 7,000 steps per day. I had originally planned to keep increasing my target by 500 steps every challenge till I got to 10,000, till it was pointed out that is an arbitrary number set by the people who invented the first pedometer in Japan in the 60s. Somewhere between 7-8 thousand steps a day seems to be enough to get the benefit of a step-goal, so I'll probably go up to 8,000 and just keep it there. Swings is about Kettlebells. I modified the NF Beginnner KB workout to something that works for me. Three rounds of: 8 halos each direction 10 squats (Bodyweight for now till I drop some pounds) 10 Overhead Press each arm 15 swings 8 Bent over Rows each arm I also do the cooking in our house and write about it, so don't come to my thread hungry. I've been told my descriptions of dinner are hunger inducing.
  10. Last challenge worked. I'm going to do what works. Every time I make my workouts "easier" I gain consistency and end up doing more reps over the course of a challenge than trying to go all out and only working out sporadically. When I split the NF Beginner KB workout into the arm section and the leg section, and did each on alternate days, I started being very consistent. Ergo: Goals KB workouts (alternating legs and arms) 4-6 times a week Everything else is a bonus. I really want to lock down that movement consistency.
  11. Lately I've been chasing my old consistency, and in order to do that I will remember that something is immeasurably better than nothing. I'm bringing back my old standby of giving myself full credit for a workout if I do the first rep, anything else is a bonus. Goals: Do the KB workout 3 times a week, or split it into upper and lower body portions and do six workouts a week. Walk a little Cook That's it. In honor of the late Mr. Willes, I present some Gifs
  12. Kettle Bells have been helpful to me. Last challenge I switched from a 15 pound bell to a 20 pound bell and I'm feeling the difference. If I stick with doing regular workouts, I'll get stronger. My goal is 3 times a week with the NF Beginner KB workout. I have the services of a Dietician provided for me for free from my insurance. We are taking the One-Small-Step at a time approach. Last meeting we tweaked breakfast a little Bit. My next meeting is on Tuesday of Zero Week. My goal is to maintain the breakfast tweak and get whatever new adjustment that gets proposed on Tuesday to stick. That's it. Let's not overcomplicate the goals. Those two things are important, and will yield results.
  13. Green has a lot of symbolism behind it. For the purposes of this challenge, we're focusing on the new green of Spring, and of growth. Last challenge went well, and now the focus is continued movement in the same direction. Goals: Cook, and eat out less. KB workouts Walks Stretching. Much of last challenge went on under the surface, and there was a lot of burnout recovery and maturation that happened. This challenge I'm going to continue doing the things that facilitate burnout recovery and let the results take care of themselves. Mediation Quality time with Family Movement (see Goals above) Counseling
  14. We don't get to see what happens under the soil* during the winter while seeds are apparently dormant to the eyes of us surfacers. The same is true of some stages of recovery. We put in the work, and don't see what happens as we go through the monotony of the "keep at it and results will surprise you" stage of, frankly, a lot of things. For me this applies to burnout recovery. Last challenge I started recovering from burnout, now I continue the work. The newb gains will quickly come to an end, and frankly I'm tired of quitting when the newb gains dry out. This time I want to stick with the healing things. What will heal me: Connection Intentional time with the family Continued attendance with my small group Being on the forums Movement KB workouts Stretching Walks The small group mentioned above is a disc-golf small group that meets every Saturday. It will involve walking at least a mile and a half, so I get to double dip that and count it both for connection and movement Mind and Soul Regular (like five or six minutes at a time) meditation every day Double down on faith based formation, including going to church and participating in small group (Milking it for all it's worth), as well as individual practices such as bible-reading and prayer Formal help Counseling Some sort of spiritual retreat Of what's listed above, The forums, meditation, bible reading and prayer, and counseling are pretty well locked in. The small group, intentional time with family, and everything under movement happen, and could benefit from a focus on consistency. I had never thought of it till writing this out, but exercise has effects that go both directions in time. It helps to heal stress from the past, and makes us stronger and more capable of dealing with things in the future. The retreat thing is where I'll start something new. I have reached out to a retreat center, now I need to arrange time off from work (difficult since we are short-staffed) to attend. *Unless it's one of those time lapse things where a seed is pressed up against glass under dirt, but for the purposes of this post we'll pretend that doesn't happen.
  15. Last challenge I realized I don't have to put forth Maximum Effort™ every day. I can just do the something that is not nothing and over the long run it will all add up. One of the things I used to say on here a lot is that Success is the accumulation of the consequences of good choices over time. I still believe that, and now I want to live like it. To that end, I'm going to keep with the KB workouts I've been doing about twice a week, because it's something and I'm actually doing it. I'll do my Bare Minimum™ stretches (30 seconds of forward fold and 30 seconds of squats) rather than doing nothing I'll do a walk every now and then rather than doing them never I'll of course keep cooking and focus on stopping eating when I feel full, and eating because I feel hungry, not for other reasons (except of course having a bite or two of something purely for the enjoyment of how it tastes) and not feel guilty about eating even when it IS for other reasons, or if I eat past feeling full. I'll weigh myself everyday because it's fun to have that many datapoints, but not ascribe emotional significance to a number on a scale. I'll post a gif here because even though this isn't really a themed challenge, gifs are fun.
  16. I'm still recovering from getting sick last week, and while I feel better each day, I don't have much bandwidth for a fancy challenge post, so here goes: Cook as much as possible Eat as Intuitively as possible Do KB workouts when possible Walk when possible
  17. Many children of the 80s revere "The Lady" as the finest helicopter in existence. I am among them. Fixed wing aircraft must maintain a minimum forward velocity in order for the air to move over the wings fast enough to create sufficient lift to keep them in the air. Should an aircraft slow the to the minimum speed safety devices should warn the pilot they are at "stall speed." If the aircraft dips below stall speed, the wings will no longer generate sufficient lift and the aircraft will fall from the sky. Rotary wing aircraft, however, generate lift by moving their blades in a circular motion at very high RPM. If the tail rotor provides sufficient force to counteract the rotation of the main rotor, the helicopter can hover, appearing motionless in mid-air. Maintaining a hover is considerably difficult, as constant adjustments must be made to allow for the natural air currents around the aircraft. In fitness, when progress stops unintentionally an athlete is said to have stalled. However, when someone stops their progress intentionally, they can call it a "hover" and make it the theme of their challenge. I've been slowly progressing with KettleBells after a complete respawn. I'm writing all this out a week before zeroweek starts, and assuming I'll be at six reps for all exercises on the NF beginner KettleBell workout. My plan is to stay at six reps for at least four weeks beginning with zero week before adding anymore reps. I'm doing this to let my body adapt so I can improve safely and steadily, and also to work on form on the reverse lunges. Those who have followed me in the past know the only thing I hate more than burpees are lunges, and the only thing I hate more than lunges are burpees. I still don't get down to full depth on the reverse lunges, my knees freak out and I stop about halfway down. I'm going to work on getting lower in the lunge. I'll shoot for two to three KB workouts a week. Stretching or going for walks on off days are a bonus. I'll also keep cooking. Those of you who don't know me, be warned. Don't come read this thread if you are hungry.
  18. I spent the last part of last challenge with breathing issues due to Saharan Dust. I didn't get any fitnessing in due to that, but wasn't very consistent for some time before. Since having a child I've let fitness take a back seat. This isn't helpful. I'm going to rebuild, and completely let go of old expectations that held me back. Part of me thinks I should still be as flexible and strong as I was back when I was powerlifting and doing tons of Yoga. I'm not powerlifting anymore, and while I may pick it up again (ha) in the future, it's not on the radar and I'm ok with that. What I do want to stick with is Kettlebells, some flexibility work, and walking. Part of letting go means focusing on consistency of workouts rather than progression or results. To that end I'm going back to the smaller (15 pounds) of the two bells I have (the other is 20) to signify it's better to consistently do "beginner" workouts than to sporadically do more advanced ones. I'm still on the NF Beginner KB workout. I don't care if I move past it or not. What is a priority is consistent workouts. Ideally, a week consists of two or three Kettle Bell workouts, one or two stretching sessions, and one or two walks. That's not hard. That's ok. I don't need hard, I need consistency. I'll also cook and eat intuitively. For those not familiar, it is inadvisable to read my updates if you are hungry. Less this: More this:
  19. I turn 40 on the Thursday of zero week. Accurate or not, that seems to me to be the beginning of middle age. Middle age gets a bad rap in the US, there is the mid-life crisis in popular media, for example. I have decided not to fear the onset of middle age, but to accept it. I have also decided I'm not worried about whether I have a "dad-bod," a big gut, or to focus on my waistline at all. I accept my body as it is. I really don't have too much trouble accepting my appearance, aside from how large my stomach looks when I see it at any other angle than straight on. Having said that, there are some functional aspects of it being as big as it is I don't care for. One is that when I bend over, the excess fat presses on my diaphragm and makes breathing more difficult. I'd like to tie my shoes without holding my breath. The other is clothes. I have a long torso which makes finding clothes difficult. I'm about 6 feet tall, but only have a 30 inch inseam. I have to buy tall shirts so that my shirt tails don't keep slipping out of the front of my pants. Also, the waistline of my pants wants to slip down off my mid-line down under the gut. The problem here is that my torso is so long this often exposes the bottom part of my belly if my shirt isn't tucked in, or even causes the shirt to come un-tucked if it is. Those two problems are my main motivation for having a smaller stomach. One thing I do like about aging is the experience and wisdom I gather along the way. It's fun being able to help people with things I know simply because I've been around longer than them. As I type this out, I realize that "Distinguished" is more about attitude, and how I carry myself, than it is my body size. Aging realisticaly means my body-care is more is more and more important as time goes on. I can feel the wind changing to indicate I'm coming out of my COVID slump. At the end of last challenge I began to feel confidence come back, and determination to stick with movement and nutrition. I'll continue embracing intuitive eating, while cooking as much as possible and relying on restaurant food as little as possible. I'll stick with the NF Beginner KB workout, aiming for 2-3 sessions a week. I'll continue with Bare Minimum™ stretching (30 seconds forward fold and 30 seconds frog-pose) 2-3 times a week, preferably with more stretches than the two required ones. I'll try to get some walks in. Here are some gifs because gifs. In honor of the theme, but only tangentially related to it, all gifs below are from the google image search "Middle Ages Gifs" The search algorithm really seems to like Hieronymus Bosch:
  20. I've not been happy with my weight or my activity level lately. This is not about body image, I can see many positive things about my appearance. This is about function. I have enough extra weight around my waist that it pushes on my diaphragm when I bend over and makes it hard to breathe. I don't like that. I have enough extra weight that makes it harder and more tiring to move. I don't like that. I'm not moving as much as i used to, and it negatively affects mood and energy levels, I don't like that. What I do have is this amazing community, and the knowledge that the only way to lose is to give up. I like that. This article about not giving up is very helpful. Therefore, I'm not giving up. I'd rather do 10% of something than 100% of nothing. Goals: Yoga, Walking, KettleBells, Cooking. Do them. Preferably regularly. Here are some gifs:
  21. I was wondering what to title my challenge and I decided I'm doing the same challenge I've done for quite a while, so I'll just slap a theme over the inital post. I doubt I'll stick with it much past zero week, but here we are. For those unfamiliar, Pucca is a Series from South Korea. Seasons 1-2 are available on Tubi, a free streaming service (with ads, but they are tolerable) and season 3 is on netflix. Season 1-2 Intro: Season 3 End Credits: There are apparently not a lot of Gifs easy to find. Goals: Eating and Cooking: Pucca lives with her Uncles in a Noodle House called Goh-Rong. The uncles use good ingredients and cook with passion for their craft and love for the food and their customers. I often talk about cooking on here, and I do hearby warn thee not to read my thread while Hungry. I also have been working on learning Intuitive Eating for a couple years now. I'll try to cook 5-7 times a week to feed myself and my family. Kettle Bells: Pucca is essentially a One Punch Man type character in that there may not be an upper limit to her strength. Indeed, by the end of season 3 villains are terrified of her. I can get stronger by maintaining consistency with Kettle Bells. Done properly, they let you get in strength and cardio at the same time. Yoga: Many Pucca Charcters are more Martial Artist than Yogi, but Yoga is a goal. I'll do the Yoga program on the NF Journey App. That's it, I'm not gonna overcomplicate things with more goals.
  22. Last challenge I realized I have compassion fatigue and early stage burnout. This is not surprising given my profession (Hospital Chaplain) and the state of the world (pandemic), and the fact that our team of chaplains at my facility was at 50% strength for some time. I have a session during zero week with a counselor to begin addressing the burnout and compassion fatigue, and one chaplain who was out on leave is coming back, and we are getting another chaplain transferring in to bring us up to full strength. I also have a week off from work during week 4 of the challenge. Those will help. Good news from last challenge is that I got my A1C back down out of the pre-diabetic range. What will help along with the counseling and week off is Not Giving Up (a title I also considered for the challenge) on fitness and nutrition. I will stick with walks, KB workouts, and Stretching. I will continue to cook healthy meals and eat intuitively. Also, as I write this, the leaves have finally finished coming off my red oaks and I can already see the buds of new leaves on the tree. We are in the waiting stage of winter (such as it is for South Texas) and The Vernal Equinox will happen right after the end of the challenge. So as the plants wait for spring to bud forth, I wait for the effects of continuing on with fitness and nutrition to become visible. This is a challenge of patience, of healing, and of hope. Always hope. P.S. I tend to write about what I cook in ways that induce hunger, so don't come here if you are hungry, and even if you aren't hungry, it's not a bad ide to have a snack to hand before checking on my thread. You have been warned.
  23. (We're just gonna pretend this came at the end of Terra Prime and not that other episode that came after but did not, in fact, actually happen) I really like Star Trek, and with the new stuff out this year have reignited my love for same. I was wondering what to do for a challenge theme, but this is it. As it has been for a while, I'm really just slapping a Star Trek Patina over the same challenge I did for most of last year. Kettle Bells The NF KB workout has goblet squats, so this works. I'll do the KB workout 2-3 times per week. Yoga Yoga is good. I'll shoot for 2-3 sessions per week. Intuitive Eating Eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm full. Also, don't read this thread if you are hungry. Trust me. Walking I'll go for walks with the baby when possible.
  24. I crack myself up. Weeeeeeellll ... it’s another year. Which will hopefully be better than the last. Fingers frickin crossed there. Let’s turn to a fresh page, shall we? Let’s start this year off on the right foot with continuing to stay the course on most things, while peppering in a few extras for spice. Goal 1: As always, Nutrition Staying the course on my more recent nutritional guidelines: Smaller portions, less meat, more veggies, nutrient dense food options, no GI issues. Drink enough water. Eat with an eye toward Base MFP goals for slow weight loss: 1,260 calories, 20% protein, 50% carbs, 30% fat but without judgement if I go over or under on calories. Basically, eat what I’m going to eat - but by the fact of tracking, that tends to be more reasonable. I’ll also be continuing onto my third year of daily food photos (to go along with my Picture of the Day), since y’all seem to enjoy that and get something out of it. Goal 2: As always, a Fitness Component Staying my Druidy course of action (shocker) with 4-5 yoga classes per week - hoping to mix in live 3-D classes with my Zoom schedule. Not sure as of writing this how exactly that’ll take shape. Will update later. Also adding my wrist, ankle/quad/glute, and breath work rehab exercises here for accountability. Wrists & breath work are daily, along with trigger point massage; ankle/quad/glute work is every other day. Goal 3: Fulfillment This goal encompasses a bunch of small things I have going on a daily basis already - with a couple tweaks. The secondary digital project is new, but I’m enjoying learning how to create in this space so I think I’ll keep it up. Pup training is back - I think they’re ready to move on from just working on reactivity; we can find another project aside from deep naps. [ - ] Duolingo Arabic classes [ - ] Primary craft project [ - ] Secondary digital project [ - ] Enrichment feeds for the pups [ - ] Training for the pups Goal 4: Do Some Shit That Feels Adulty We have a few things on the fire at the moment, or hope to in the near future, so I will have goals & targets there. More on those as they materialize. Hopefully. I also still want to focus actual (step up from minimal) effort on my blog, so that goal is staying. Picture of the Day has been going strong for 10 years; I’ll be continuing that Weekly recipes are staying I’m hoping to add weekly ingredient spotlights e-Book(s) are happening this year At least a modicum of Pinterest effort is happening Working on yet again revamping my food photography style for this year And aside from that, I need to find something else to work toward so my brain doesn’t mush. Pulling sentences for the last big blog post I wrote was harder than it should have been, and it isn’t a great post, tbh. More on this one when I pick a course of action.
  25. I've put my narrative energy into the Mini Challenge this time around, so here is a place for me to report on daily activities: Goals: Cook and eat intuitively. Do KB workouts. Do mobility stuff or Yoga. Those three things are the core of my fitness plan right now. Here are some gifs because my initial post is simple.
