  1. While this is supposedly a Doctor Who themed year, I tend to do a special Valentines themed February, to be hot and shallow and slightly drunk. (Mostly shallow, as I still largely aspire to either of the other two.) So we will have a short diversion. After all, one can get into a rut. 1. Strength training Dating on Vulcan requires a lot more combat than you might expect. So physical training is important. But what will not do is upsetting the delicate hormonal balance that keeps you from killing half a dozen people with sharpened hockey stick. To keep cortisol down, the goal is one single strength exercise a day, from this list: plank, bridge, horse stance, superman, maybe some rowing if I'm feeling it. Also, my stupid daily walk for my stupid mental and physical health. I will count anything. The goal is consistency. But I do want giant muscles, cuz I have people to beat with a lirpa, so strength. Goal: be strong, do an exercise 2. Eat the plomik soup. Dating on Vulcan requires correct fueling of the body. We're aiming for closer to therapeutic keto this time around. Brain needs ketones. I don't know if we'll get to that macro split, but we can manage a stick of butter. Goal: eat a stick of butter (or equivalent fats) Goal: drink a gallon of water 3. Rest Dating on Vulcan requires quality sleep, or at least some quality meditation. Goal: 11pm bedtime with meditation. 4. Emotional Management This is me lately. Also, I recently heard someone say that time management these days is really emotion management, and I think that's very true. For me, this also hits some ADHD stuff, cuz ADHD tends to magnify strong emotions. I'm gonna practice spotting and reacting to emotions or emotional spirals (hopefully not too many of those). Treating the don't-wannas with rest counts. Goal: one emotional intervention Bonus: Vulcan eye makeup Vulcans play a good eyeshadow game, so this probably requires at least some eyeliner. Okay, wait, this challenge is entirely inappropriate for a February challenge. It involves actual stuff, and not, like, stocking my bar and upgrading my wardrobe. I may need to reconsider this. Sigh. Vulcans do not know how to have a good time.
  2. It's the last chapter of 2016.... shall we do our best to make it a good one and end on a high note together? <3 Balance Restore Energize Accomplish Transform Humor Engage Welcome back nerds, rebels, and friends, for another round of Project B.R.E.A.T.H.E. Fitness is first and foremost a very physical thing and often the mental and emotional aspects of our life journeys, Epic quests, and everyday challenges become pushed aside or shoved to the back burner, sometimes without us even realizing it. A lot of Rebels seem to struggle with the junkier aspects of life - stress, anxiety, depression, lots of conflicting emotions and mental hurdles. (Um, self included!) I think a lot of people - again, self included - don’t like to always dump this stuff out in their challenges or battle logs because it’s... well, just hard. We feel like we’re always complaining or whining or just being negative or pessimistic all the time, that no one wants to read about our struggles, or that we’re bothering people with our troubles and concerns... but that’s just not true. Life is HARD, y’all. It takes a great deal of vulnerability to lay our struggles out for the world to see. If we can support ourselves through our physical changes then we should be able to support each other’s quests for good mental health and well-being, too! And sometimes all it takes is another person’s perspective - another person that’s not mired down in your head and thoughts 24/7 - to shine a different light on things that may seem otherwise impossible. I’d like this group to be a place where people can: Come and vent openly about any struggles they’re encountering in their lives, anytime, regardless of whether it’s just to vent and get things off their chest or seek advice and suggestions from others. Come to support and motivate others that are struggling, whether it be with a shared experience, motivation, or advice. Share not only your struggles but your victories too; defeating a mental dragon is HUGE, and you deserve applause and recognition for overcoming your own battles! Find kindness and compassion from others in a judgement-free zone. Feel welcome and know that they are not alone in their mental and emotional struggles. As the weeks go on I’ll facilitate some group questions and discussions too, to keep the good energy flowing. I hope you can find this to be a helpful and comfy space, and if anyone has any suggestions or questions, please don't hesitate to contact me!! For the Rebellion!

  4. Balance Restore Energize Accomplish Transform Humor Engage The original Project: B.R.E.A.T.H.E accountability group was started by @Kelliestrasza at the start of 2016. I’d really like to bring it back into the spotlight and hope we Rebels as a whole can start to cultivate this space as an open, productive, and supportive system. <3 Fitness is first and foremost a very physical thing and often the mental and emotional aspects of our life journeys, Epic quests, and everyday challenges become pushed aside or shoved to the back burner, sometimes without us even realizing it.

  5. Yes, I'm doing another twenty one pilots themed challenge. I am still off in faraway lands doing cool things with lasers, and I'm still homesick and anxious and sad, and these awesome dudes are still helping me stay sane. And it just so happens that this beautiful song (one of the first songs of theirs that I fell in love with) has a few lines that relate directly to my goals for the challenge! PERF~ PRIMARY GOALS ~ i'm taking over my body ~ I am so done with dorm food, oh my lordy lord. There are so many delicious things and ALL OF THEM ARE BAD FOR ME. I am done letting food control me though! I'm taking aggressive control of what I put in my mouth. During zero week, I'm going to attempt Cold Turkey (mostly!)Paleo. Last challenge, I tried limiting myself to one dessert per day, but here's the thing - you can never have just one! I've found that going cold turkey has worked for me in the past, so I'm gonna give it another shot. Depending on how zero week goes, I may re-evaluate this goal. ~ it probably happens at night, right? ~ Everything here happens at night. Wanna go to a cafe? Wanna watch a movie? Let's go to a concert! Let's play a game! Let's go jam in the music room! I'm not used to having such a vast social life all of a sudden, and it's been really fun, but I haven't gotten to bed before 11:00pm in, like, 5 weeks. I'm tired all the time, and my mental health is suffering. The goal here is to be in bed, TECH OFF, by 10:00 (with the exception of maybe weekends). SECONDARY GOALS (not graded) ~ entertain my faith ~ Another reason, I suspect, that my mental health has been suffering is because I haven't been reading my Bible very much. Most weeks, church on Sunday and small group on Wednesday are all I get during the week, and that is NO BUENO! I'd like to read/meditate on a chapter of Proverbs every day, if possible, per a reading challenge that was issued by the church I've been attending. ~ time to move our feet ~ I have totally fallen of the exercise bandwagon, and it's really frustrating. I was doing so well during last semester! And then final exams rolled around, and ever since then I've hardly exercised at all. I'd like to have a physical activity 3 or so times per week at least, but ideally every weekday. I brought my yoga mat with me and bought new workout clothes before I came here and everything! Time to put them to use!!!
