  1. SOOOOOOO you may notice a theme with me as of late (or as of always?!?! HAHAHHAHHAHA.) I am in the middle of a show run (almost done!) and then I have already started working on another show which will be hitting tech week in about 3 weeks and then we just found out the same pieces + well will probably do a few more can be done as part of a different show that is a few weeks later in the first week of December. Sooo basically I am going to be doing 3 shows back to back.... HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Anywho! I have to keep my goals super basic because I know how crazytimes this next approx 1.5 months will be! GOALS Try to get at least 6 hours of sleep - Try not to drop below 6 hours of sleep per day! This isn't always under my control especially on tech weeks but, at bare minimum if I get 6+ hours at least 4 days a week I want that to be my baseline minimum. Eat better food - Do at least SOME meal prep on weekend (bare minimum is buy healthier premade crap from trader joes or something) so I am not stuck having to eat food out and about so much. I am not getting enough veggies and it makes me the sadness! Downtime - get at least 2 consecutive hours of downtime at least one evening per week. Get at least one solid chunk of 4+ hours of downtime one day per weekend. (Once again this isn't always under my control during tech weeks but I will try!) Drink more water- Drink at least 6 glasses of water a day on all days, and 8 glasses per day minimum on dance days/days when I sweat like a mofo. Also, if I drink beer for dinner make sure I have a night cap of water before I go to sleep (8 oz glass minimum. If it was a lot of IPA a full 16 oz bottle may be in order!) Basically DRINK MORE WATER. Anywhooooo <3
  2. This will be a work in progress since I am ultimate stress-panda right now. Hopefully will have some time to breathe post race this coming weekend and then finalize my goals for the rest of the challenge (aerial will definitely be on the list once I have time to brain and breathe again!) For this week my only goals are: UPDATED GOALS as of Week 2! GOAL 1 - ENDURANCE - Run at least once per week and do a good walk at least once per week (hikes also OK, and if I run or walk more than once that is also OK!) GOAL 2 - LIFTING - I MISS LIFTING. Slowly ease back into lifting 1x per week on Sundays, because I like how dead my gym is on Sundays and I am finally over my mopeyness that my trainer left and realize I NEED TEH LIFTINGS. GOAL 3 - AERIAL - Aerial once per week. If I can't make it to my usual day, replace with core and pull up progression work. (If I go back to lifting on Sundays I cant really do open gym for aerial unless I want to do both in 1 day and that sounds like a bad idea.) GOAL 4- Life goal: DECLUTTER - This has been an ongoing goal for forever I know, but yeah. Declutter at least 30 min per week! WEEK 1 GOALS (Already past, but for a refresher!) 1. Run final prep run before race either Weds or Thurs. Trying to decide which day is better. If my sleep is going to be total shit this week I should probably run tomorrow/Weds so I get actual time to recover for a few days pre-race. 2. Pack for race trip earlier in the week so you don't have to stress last minute on Thursday night (key note: I don't want to deal with actual overhead baggage and I am not doing checked baggage so I am strategizing how to fit everything I need in one small backpack) 3. Figure out how to lower stress level NOW. At minimum enough so I can actually sleep. Sleep would be nice. Current strategy is I have cut out class for tonight and any plans I had for tomorrow. May also cancel on nerding on Thursday night. ANY plans are causing me aaah aaah stress give me my time back mode right now.
  3. Yes I know this should have been the title for part 2.0 but whatever. JUST THOUGHT OF IT WOO and I am bored of using the exact same challenge title! This will be mostly the same set up for goals although I am thinking I will substitute the exercise goal with something else since that should not be a problem as we get closer to the show..... So, this challenge marks the entry into HOLY SHIT AAAH crunch time for the dance production I am working on. I am done wearing choreographer hat mostly BUT we have like....10+ more dances and transition scenes etc. to get done in only 6 weeks and only 6 of those are actually on the schedule already so yeaaaaah.... My weeknight and weekend downtime goals will likely have to be reduced in final weeks of this challenge (or HEY maybe we can get this shit scheduled now so I can maybe average out 1 day per week instead of 2 days per week to ZERO but hey, I don't get to decide the schedule unfortunately!) Goal 1: EXERCISE Maintain exercise plan for maximum happiness but NOT into oh hey where did my life go? territory. Parameters: work out at least 3 x per week (Brainstorming how to revise this to account for me likely getting 5+ days of dance rehearsals by the end of challenge. Open to suggestions!!) Goal 2: DOWNTIME & FRIENDS (Yes left shark has nothing to do with this but whatever. LEFT SHARK FOREVER!) Have AT LEAST one evening off during weeknights in order to hang out with friends OR cook stuff/ downtime whatever I need, and at least one day a weekend with at least a 6 hours IN A ROW chunk of downtime/friendtime. GOAL 3: ADULTING Dedicate at least 2 hours per week to adulting pursuits! (Does not need to be in a row.) Cleaning, reorganizing, meal prep, anything adulting related is fair game!! GOAL 4: To be decided? Or maybe I should be more minimalist because AAAH BUSY hmm... No Goal 4 because busy! Life Goal- BALANCE! Maintain balance!!! I shall strive to be self aware of if the above plan is NOT working and make alterations if necessary. (Alterations WILL be necessary this round as mentioned above.)
  4. I've realized this last challenge was an excellent exercise for me in maintaining balance soooo I am going to keep mostly the same goals for this round! NOW WITH MORE CAT GIFS!! :D!!!! Goal 1: EXERCISE Maintain exercise plan for maximum happiness but NOT into oh hey where did my life go? territory. Parameters: work out at least 3 x per week Goal 2: DOWNTIME & FRIENDS Have AT LEAST one evening off during weeknights in order to hang out with friends OR cook stuff/ downtime whatever I need, and at least one day a weekend with at least a 6 hours IN A ROW chunk of downtime/friendtime. GOAL 3: ADULTING Dedicate at least 2 hours per week to adulting pursuits! (Does not need to be in a row.) Cleaning, reorganizing, meal prep, anything adulting related is fair game!! GOAL 4: HEALTH I still never got around to scheduling my dentist appointment before the end of summer...sooo I am keeping this goal just with one thing.. MAKE THE DAMN DENTIST APPT ALREADY!!! Hahhaha Life Goal- BALANCE! Maintain balance!!! I shall strive to be self aware of if the above plan is NOT working and make alterations if necessary.
  5. ALMOST NEW CHALLENGE TIME! This last challenge hit some setbacks in the form of a giant adorable old man kitteh sized hole in my heart (lost one of my dear furbabies.) This challenge I am focusing on how to keep up with all of my various exercise shenanigans WITHOUT totally overbooking myself/ with actually leaving some time for downtime and for socializing...not that I don't get social time when I AM working on a dance show etc., but it is only with dance-fam people and I neglect every other relationship in my life. These past few months I've actually been hanging out with my good friends who aren't just dance people and it has been AWESOMEEEEEEE. And I'm like OH YEAH I HAVE OTHER FRIENDS YOU GUYS! Also, I am seeing someone and I have good feelings about how things are going, so yeah leaving time for that is important! Important note: I am too lazy to pick just ONE theme so expect the theme to be silly shit I find on the internet that suits my mood at a given moment. Buaahahhaha. I am still playing around with specific goals so expect this list to change a bit but: Goal 1: EXERCISE Maintain exercise plan for maximum happiness but NOT into oh hey where did my life go? territory. Parameters: work out at least 3 x per week, including at least one lifting day, aerial day (trying to get this back in my life!) and dance day. Goal 2: DOWNTIME & FRIENDS Have AT LEAST one evening off during weeknights in order to hang out with friends OR cook stuff/ downtime whatever I need. and at least one day a weekend with at least a 6 hours IN A ROW chunk of downtime/friendtime. GOAL 3: ADULTING (I am aware this picture is in no way related to this goal but it made me LOL soooooo....) If you looked at all at my last challenge you know I have a big list of stuff to get done and regular adulting type shit to maintain! Dedicate at least 2 hours per week to adulting pursuits! (Does not need to be in a row.) GOAL 4: HEALTH This could be included under adulting but I have a few specific things I keep neglecting to get around to. In the duration of this challenge take blood pressure once per week, AND actually go do your damn bloodwork (yes I really didn't get to this last time. Oops.), AND schedule dentist appointment for cleaning before the end of summer sessions/ when work will get crazier. AND bonus points for me if I do an eye appointment as well (less crucial and I don't have particularly bad eyesight but I try to do this every few years AND I like to have some prescription shades around for if I am driving a lot. I can do fine with non-script but I have good insurance sooo let's do this?!) Life Goal- BALANCE! This is the overarching goal I am trying to achieve in all the things above, but my specific mantra this round shall be to do my damndest to maintain balance. I shall strive to be self aware of if the above plan is NOT working and make alterations if necessary.
