Okay. Third challenge. Last one I made too complicated. Still achieved some great things, but didn't knock it out of the park like i wanted to. It's time to prioritize, and keep it simple. 1) Run, Amy, RUN! Keep rocking the 10K trainer app. Goal 3x per week or 18 total. Going to allow 3 non-program following "easy" runs if I just can't find the time for the scheduled run that day. (It was a lot easier finding 30 minutes in my day than 1 hour+!!!) +3STA, +2DEX Complete first organized run. Scheduled for April 28th- 5 mile benefit run for a 12-year-old kid up the street who has also recently been my pheresis patient. +2CHA 2) Strength training For real this time. Twice a week. Either on run days, or on non-run days. Bodyweight workouts, circuit training with my husband, or yoga/group classes all count. +3STR +1CON 3) Be intentional Not sure how this is going to look in a measurable achievable goal... will edit this post later when I figure it out. It's just that lately, life has gotten way out of control. Kids have baseball starting up, track, school functions, etc etc etc. I have a job, a house to run, time commitments to singing on our church's Praise Team, nutritional talks, poster presentations coming up at medical conventions (2 in the next month) and so on and so on. I find that the busier I get, the more my focus gets fractionated, and the less effective I am at ALL of it. I want to be a patient pediatric nurse, a fulfilled and happy wife and a relaxed, healthy example for my kids. More on a plan for this later. **Edit: Okay... I've added a row for this to my Accountability Spreadsheet to track things I can do in pursuit of this goal. I've added a legend for things like date with hubby, date with kid, me time, journaling, family meals, quiet time/devos... etc. I want a minimum of 5 of these per week. I'm hoping that just by tracking these, it will increase my awareness of them. That alone should add focus to my life! +3WIS +1CHA Will edit later with points and a more concrete plan. For now that's the gist of it! ***Edited 4/21 to assign attribute points, and to make the title not match Kiwi's
