  1. "This battle isn't going very well, Doc. Any suggesti..." "Mega Man!? Rock! Come in my boy" A final shot took out the Blue Bomber. Time to try it again. I have been largely absent from the boards recently and I could give excuses until I was blue in the face (see what I did there?), but I wont. I'm ready to continue. I have a few goals for this challenge and as an added bonus, I have inspired my family to start one as well, albeit offline. Joining me offline is my mother, my step father, Pizzazz, Jitters Junior and Jitter Bug. It's going to be a great year! I'm going to workout 3 days/week 0/3 Weekly 0/12 4WC I will only have one serving of dinner each night 0/7 Weekly 0/28 4WC I am going to practice guitar 3 days per week with a minimum of 15 minutes per practice. 0/3 Weekly 0/12 4WC BONUS LEVEL! RAK at least 1/week. I want to keep up the mojo from the Christmas season and keep giving back. 0/1 Weekly 0/4 4WC I'll add more fluff as work allows this week. I'm pretty busy and loving it. Let's do this!
  2. "Climb to the top of the world" System reboot initiated. ProtoJitters online. Battle program found. Initiate protocols. ... Initiation failed. Upload previous missions. ... Upload failed. Install into new chassis. Installation complete. Powering on. It's time for me to get my head back in the game. I'm going back to my old goals that I failed spectacularly at on my last challenge. I will see this through. "And as you stand tall, you will see..." I will be following a simple workout routine for the next 6 weeks. I will continue my search for inner peace through meditation in the mornings. Most of all, and without a doubt the most difficult for me; I will get my eating habits under control, specifically, portions. "That when you fall..." Work out 4 days per week. No matter what. My family has helped me in the past with my workouts, they will help propel me to the man I can be. Too often I say I can't because I'm watching the kids or I have some obligation that prevents me from doing this. No more. 0/4 - Weekly 0/24 - 6WC Meditate 5 days per week. This is usually not a problem, but for some reason, I fell out of habit. Time to go back to my roots. 0/5 - Weekly 0/30 - 6WC Portion Control. Grading is subjective and difficult, but I will do my best on this. I should not be finished with my meal and going back for seconds before my wife and kids are done with half of their plate. I will try to limit my intake as well. To give you an understanding of my capabilities, 3 Chipotle burritos is no problem for me to finish. I was one quarter of the 36" pizza challenge team that finished in just over 13 minutes (the team gets 30 minutes) and had some of our friends pizza after. I can eat. I don't want that anymore. Why? Because I can't be there for my family if I'm dead. Pass/Fail 0/21 - Weekly Pass/Fail 0/126 - 6WC Bonus Level: Glass work. I will finish at least one piece each week. After this challenge is over, I will have two weeks until my next craft show in Two Harbors. I need to be well stocked for it.0/1 - Weekly 0/6- 6WC "You will fall from a height most men will never reach" I will stumble along the way, but it will not stop me. I will beat this. Recently, I fell into the habit of drinking Red Bull again. It's something that I struggle with every day. Caffeine addiction is tough. So, Naxius and I made a deal. She goes to a one cup/day max and I go Red Bull free for this challenge. Added bonus. Pass/Fail 0/0 - Weekly Pass/Fail 0/0 - 6WC
  3. "Climb to the top of the world" System reboot initiated. ProtoJitters online. Battle program found. Upload previous missions. ... Upload failed. The latest newsletter from Steve had a link to an article he wrote about putting fitness first and being selfish about it. For those of you who are not new to my challenges knows that this is not me. I have a huge problem not putting others first; especially my family. To me, they take priority in my life, even if it means that I suffer. "And as you stand tall, you will see..." This challenge, I will break that cycle. I will find a way to keep them as a priority, and make improvements for myself. I will do this for myself, and for them. We all deserve it. We booked a trip to Wisconsin Dells in late July, and I will not be embarrassed by the way I look. By my actions, perhaps, but not by my body. I will be following a simple workout routine for the next 6 weeks. I will continue my search for inner peace through meditation in the mornings. Most of all, and without a doubt the most difficult for me; I will get my eating habits under control, specifically, portions. "That when you fall..." Work out 4 days per week. No matter what. My family has helped me in the past with my workouts, they will help propel me to the man I can be. Too often I say I can't because I'm watching the kids or I have some obligation that prevents me from doing this. No more. 0/4 - Weekly 0/24 - 6WC Meditate 5 days per week. This is usually not a problem, but for some reason, I fell out of habit. Time to go back to my roots. 0/5 - Weekly 0/30 - 6WC Portion Control. Grading is subjective and difficult, but I will do my best on this. I should not be finished with my meal and going back for seconds before my wife and kids are done with half of their plate. I will try to limit my intake as well. To give you an understanding of my capabilities, 3 Chipotle burritos is no problem for me to finish. I was one quarter of the 36" pizza challenge team that finished in just over 13 minutes (the team gets 30 minutes) and had some of our friends pizza after. I can eat. I don't want that anymore. Why? Because I can't be there for my family if I'm dead. Pass/Fail 0/21 - Weekly Pass/Fail 0/126 - 6WC "You will fall from a height most men will never reach" I do this to be a better man. For my kids, for my wife and now, for myself. I deserve this. I will not let one failure deter me from my goals. I will stumble along the way, but it will not stop me. I will beat this.
  4. “You are never strong enough that you don't need help.†A number of months ago, I came across this: I held it back because I didn't want people to know that I was struggling, online or in real life. I am always willing to help others, it should be the benchmark of humanity. However, I need to be willing to ask for and accept help from others. It's with that spirit that I take this next challenge. Keep the Mojo mojoing: 0/3 0/18 Do some sort of workout that keeps my body moving. BBWW, the 7-minute workout, running, jumping, etc... 3X per week. Wait! You noticed that I put the body weight and the running together? How astute. Well done. The reason for this is because: All that heavy isn't going to lift itself: 0/3 0/18 I'm going to lift 3X per week. I've not lifted in a long time, and I really want to get back into it. I want to earn that Thor Shirt. What Thor shirt? This Thor shirt: or this one: Which will be my reward for finishing this challenge with at least a B. Now, there should be 3 things, and as a Druid, I'm going to add this: Peace can only come from within: 0/5 0/30 Meditate 5X per week. A focused mind can accomplish more and right now, I'm not accomplishing a damn thing. I will slow down, and notice the quiet and that things simply are. By now, in my head at least, you're all wondering what calling Rush has to do with all of this. Glad you asked. Mega Man would not be able to defeat Dr. Wily by himself. Dr. Light, Roll, and Eddie (Flip Top) all help along the way, but it is Rush, Mega Man's trusty dog, that is always there for him (at least since Mega Man 3, which is my favorite). Rush is that extra boost when Mega Man can't quite jump that high. Rush is the way across when the pit is too wide. Rush is the all encompassing friend that we all need. So, how does this all tie in? My grades for my challenge will all be dependent on whether or not I ask for help. My plan is to seek help from other people with all of my activities in some way. I may (and I really should) take The Most Loathed up on his offer of joining him at his new garage gym (and get tips, this guy knows his stuff). I may take Kat or CeaseFire up on the offer of a running mate. I may ask my wife to join me on my workout days at home. The only one that I can't figure out is the meditation. I am not sure how to have someone help me with a solo act. I'm open to suggestions on that one. My grades will suffer one letter if I don't ask for help at least once a week. 0/6 We begin on the 15th, it's going to be a great challenge.
  5. "We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone" Password accepted. Loading data. Data retrieved. Please pick your goals from previous challenges. I'm going to do a mash up of my previous challenges and put them together to get me closer to where I want to be in regards to my weight/clothes fitting better and my life in general. Beware, the return of the RAKs is here! From my First Challenge: -Beginner's Bodyweight Workout 3 days a week - no excuses anymore. 3 circuits - A; 2 circuits - B; 1 circuit - C; miss workout - F. I will be giving myself an exception on this: my son and I will start Judo on the 30th and it goes for 4 weeks. During those 4 weeks, that can replace a BBWW. 0/3 0/18 From my Second Challenge: SWIFT: Cardio three times a week, 20 minutes at a time. I am working my jump rope skills up to this, so I will run for the minutes I don’t make it on the rope. 3 days - A, 2 days - C, 1 or less - F 0/3 0/18 From my Fourth Challenge: Unicycle/Juggling/Stilt Walking - 4 days per week. I'm calling this one Skills practice. It can be anything that improves my skills. 4+ days - A, 3 days - B, 2 days - C, 1 day - D, 0 days - F 0/4 0/24 Side Quest: From my Third Challenge: I will commit 6 Random Acts of Kindness during this challenge. This goes beyond holding a door for someone. They will need to go above and beyond and it will be done because I can. I will admit now, I am doing this because I believe these acts can change the world, even if it's for the recipient and that is the world I wish to live in. 0/6 There are going to be times where I will falter, I'm sure. I am going to do the best I can on this and I am going to get back to where I was. Right now, I'm sitting at 248 lbs. (as of this morning) when I was down to an unthinkable (for me at least) 228 at my lowest since joining the Rebellion. I will not be deterred. I look forward to Monday's start, and I hope you all enjoy the show you're about to see.
  6. "One of the hardest parts of life is deciding whether to walk away or try harder" I'm going semi-simple with this challenge. Why? Because of my limited amount of brain power at the moment. Which segues nicely into Yoga/Meditation - 4 days minimum per week. I've got a bag full of cats in my brain recently and I need to get the smell of crazy off for a bit. A clear head can go a long way 0/24 Lifting - 3 days per week. I am going to find some lifts that I enjoy and that will increase my strength. Can't be Thor without some good strength. 0/18 Unicycle/Juggling/Stilt Walking - 4 days per week. My parade season won't start till the month after we end this challenge, but that means I need to get the practice going now, or I'll look rather foolish (and not in the good way) on on the streets. Kilt and bagpipes optional. I'm not sure when I will get stilts, but I would like to try them out. And, as a part of this, I need to get at least pictures, if not video of a few practices. We'll see how this goes... 0/24 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jCmfKHzafk Side Quest 1: I need to eat less and stop snacking after 8pm. I am going to not finish the kids' food at dinners when they don't eat it all. I will slow down my eating speed and recognize when I am full. This will be hard for me, but it should help me get down to the size 38 pants I want to stay in. Side Quest 2: Find something that I want to do with my life and start doing it. I'm tired of waking up and not being excited for my work day. I will make a significant step in that direction before the 6 weeks are up. This will be either getting enrolled in school, taking an interview that I want, or getting a business plan on paper so I can have my own business. I may or may not come up with more side quests. We'll see how that goes. I now await the beginning of the challenge.
  7. I will be meditating everyday between now and the 3rd. I've been forgetting to take the time for myself recently and I need to get back on that. I will post here on occasion. Okay, probably a lot. I get bored at work; especially when it's end of the calendar year. I hope to be well rested/focused by then.
  8. This is going to be long, so bear with me. I’m nerding out hard on this one. Credit for the writing goes to The Protomen. I changed some of their lyrics to fit my challenge. The summery is at the end if you want to skip ahead, but I think this is pretty entertaining, and really, that is why I do things; because it entertains me. For the music (and original lyrics) play this YouTube video while reading: Hope Rides Alone No one was left who could remember how it had happened; how his body fell into the darkness. At least no one who would do anything. No one who would oppose the laziness. No one who would challenge its power. Or so Dr. LazyJitters believed. Twenty floors above the dark streets of his own mind, Dr. LightJitters lived in a rundown tenement. An eccentric and brilliant man, Jitters was a loner, a thinker, a man of ideas. Ideas forbidden in Lazy’s body. The body for which he worked. The body in which he lived. The body that he would set free. And so Jitters worked, far into his nights, when the watchful eyes of Lazy’s doubts weren’t upon him. He’d set his skillful hands to the task of creating a device to bring about a change; to create a machine to bring freedom; to create a man to save this body! Ten years Jitters worked, but on a cold night, in the year 200X, ProtoJitters was born. A soon to be perfect man; an unbeatable machine. Hell-bent on destroying every vice standing between himself and healthy freedom. Built for one purpose, to destroy Lazy’s army of self-doubts. Ready, willing, prepared to fight. And as the smoke cleared, Lazy rose above the countless doubts remaining. ProtoJitters was wounded, low on energy, struggling to remain active as Lazy ordered the final attack. The death of ProtoJitters. I tried so hard to become great. I failed. I got frustrated. I cried after working so hard for something. I thought I was strong enough. I was wrong. Funeral for a Son Between the gaps in the trembling and calloused fingers that cradle his heavy head, Jitters watches the mob of cowardly feelings carry ProtoJitters’ scarred helmet -- all that was left of the Man Machine who would have been their savior. As the crowd of feelings march somberly back to slavery –Dr. Jitters notices a tear streaming down the dorsum of his hand and feels a breathtaking weight in his chest. What is this? Frustration? Humiliation? Hatred? Certainly, these are there too. But no, this is more than that. These emotions are his life. He has lived with them for so long that they no longer affect him. Over the years he has learned to fight them, then ignore them, and finally channel them into his work, his creation, his machine, his hope. So that was it. The source of tears and the pain that caused them. This time he had built more than a machine. He had sent more than a fleeting attempt to battle. He had sent a man, a part of his own self, to do the impossible, to save he who could not be saved, to die. There was the hatred again, the rage, welling inside of him. No more, he thought, as he tore down the tools and parts that framed his piece of mind that thought he could change. Never again. "This body deserves the hell that he has brought upon itself!" He smashed and cut his resolve, in an effort to destroy his own means of creation. He allowed the tears to pour from his cheeks and mingle with the blood seeping from the cuts in his torn and battered hands. He had set out to use these hands to destroy his resolve but he now watched as they seemed to be creating of their own accord. Pieces of himself were seized and fused. They began to take form - the form of Jitters’ anger, the form of his guilt, the form of his grief, the form of his love, the form of another. Years passed. Nothing changed. The body he had seemed weary but content to suffer under Dr. Lazy and the doubt army. In whispers, his feelings still spoke of ProtoJitters. Eventually, MegaJitters would find out the truth. Dr. Jitters knew this. When MegaJitters was old enough, Dr. Jitters called him into the workshop and began to explain... Unrest in the House of Light “You have heard me tell this story many times before you sleep. This time listen carefully. And I will tell you once again, but this time understand that what I’m telling you; every single word is true. You need to know. There was another, who came before you. He was a hero and your brother and my son. He fought the darkness and the darkness won. He fought bravely, and he died bravely; but he was forsaken by the ones he wished to save. And when he died, he died in vain. You need to know, you are not him. A time is coming, and I must warn you, though it’s something that you may not understand; we can’t be saved by just one man. And I am sorry, ‘cause I was wrong. I’d take away the weight his shoulders had to bear. Because when he fell I was the only one who cared. You need to know, you are not him. His fight’s not yours.†MegaJitters broke away from his father's hold, ran to the window and looked out over the body. His eyes filled with tears. His heart hurt under the weight of what he'd just been told. How could his father do nothing? How could Dr. Jitters not avenge the death of ProtoJitters? “That story’s finished. That story’s ended. Understand there’s nothing more that we can do. And I will not risk losing you. For if you leave now you will be fighting for a body that refuses to comprehend; it has chosen its own end. So you will stay here. You will obey me and I will keep grieving for the part of me I sent to death. You are all that I have left. You need to know, you are not him. This fight’s not yours. MegaJitters tore past Dr. Jitters. He threw the doors open at the end of the hallway and disappeared into the stairway. Dr. Jitters called after him: You cannot win! 18 months had passed, all the while trying to build myself up, and I would fail. I would get psyched up to get in better shape. Inevitably, after about 3 weeks I would always give up. It was a cycle I couldn’t break. I needed a change. Nerd Fitness was that change. Slowly, MegaJitters would come out, though. The Will of One “I have seen this body a thousand times. Through the glass twenty stories high, I have watched this body burn. If everything that you said is true, there is no hope someday it will learn. But if I stay here with you, then I will never know the truth. Do not say this is how it has to be. As I walk through the body’s muscles, these frightened feelings watching me pass, there is an evil that holds them here, yet they won’t try breaking its grasp. But if I stay here with you, then I will leave them to their doom. Do not sa, this is how it has to be. You do no better than the fools of this failing bodyâ€. MegaJitters stopped. His path through the body had led him to the memory grave of his brother. Memories began to gather below the hilltop where he stood silently, reading the words of his father carved onto the crumbling marker. “Even here it is not safe. (Dr. Jitters in his head: You have heard me tell this story many times before you sleep) Even this grave has been defaced. (No matter how dark this body gets) Someone has written on this stone (even now, there is hope for us) in some angry hand, ‘Hope rides aloneâ€. The muscles fly past him now. MegaJitters rushes towards the top side of the body, towards the fortress, towards his fate. The constant voices mounted at intervals on the side of the brain are humming, chanting words to settle the stir created by a new hero. Words to quell a potential uprising. Words to inspire fear. Words to drive back the idea that fitness is within the grasp of one angry mob headed by one unstoppable leader. One perfect Machine. “Do not say this is how it has to be. You do no better than the fools of this burning body. And as I live there is no evil that will stand. I will finish what was started; the fight of ProtoJitters!†Thus began my first 6 week challenge. Vengeance Voices in my Head: “We have control! We keep you safe! We are your hope!†Endlessly repeating. The words of the men and women met in the NF forums carry him forward. MegaJitters has no fear now that freedom is near. Standing between the man he would be and MegaJitters is an army of Doubts, commanded by one leader. This is not Dr. Lazy. Lazy has no power on a field of battle. This is Lazy's second in command. His face is shrouded in the shadow of the fortress, his rough features and solid construction obscured by the void of light. The doubts advance. One by one they will fall. No mercy will be shown. No hesitation. These are useless. They cannot feel pain. They cannot understand what drives MegaJitters onward. The rage is lost on them. MegaJitters has his target now. The Commander of this doubt army will fall. All the exercise and pain he must wade through to get there is insignificant. “Send your armies. There’s no man or machine who can stop me, and you’ll soon see. I’ve come for vengeance for the first son of Jitters. And I’m ready and I’m willing and I’m prepared to… Send me the best you’ve got. Send me your strongest doubt machine. The fight my brother fought, here, now, will end with me. All you wounded, those of you who can, pick yourselves off the ground. Hurry back, tell your leader you need more men.†Nearing the gate and the leader of the Doubt Army, MegaJitters’ fury yields to confusion. This Commander is not just another doubt machine. “The shadow, it covers your face, but your eyes shine, just like mine. Step forward, step into the light if you’re ready and willing and prepared to fight.†No movement. “So be it! Send your armies. There’s no man or machine who can stop me, and you’ll soon see. I’ve come for vengeance for the first son Jitters. And I’m ready and willing and prepared to fight. Is this the best you’ve got? Is this your strongest doubt machine? Now, with one power lift, you’ll see what vengeance means.†Just before the lift rang out, the blast that would end this battle, the commander stepped out of the shadows and into the light. This was a face our Hero had seen before, in visions and dreams. This was not the face of evil. This was the face of a Hero. The face of a Son. The face of his Brother. This was ProtoJitters. I had come to grips with the fact that I wouldn't become who I wanted to be years ago, but I never thought I would let that vision change how I saw all my future progress. It became obvious that I was fighting myself too much. I have revised what I want over the past two weeks to hopefully come up with where I want to be in six weeks because I still hear ProtoJitters’ doubts. The Stand (Man or Machine) MegaJitters dropped to his knees and lowered his weapon. Dr. Jitters stepped quietly out of the crowd. Dr. Jitters: “You’re trying to understand. I told you your brother had been killed. Yet, here he stands in the very shadow of the emotional barriers you came here to destroy. You came here to avenge his death, you came here to save this body. Can you see now, you cannot do both.†MegaJitters' eyes rose to meet his brother's. ProtoJitters met his stare, held it for only a second and turned his attention to the bloodthirsty crowd of emotions. ProtoJitters: “Tell me now; is there an emotion among you here? Is there no one who will stand up and try to fight? Tell me Man, is there not one in all your ranks? Is there not one who values health over sloth?†Protoman turns his attention back to his brother. “He looked to me once, now he turns to you. Do you understand now? Do you see that the truth is he doesn't want to change this? He doesn’t want a hero. He just want a martyr, a statue to raise. I’ve given everything I can. There are no heroes left in this man. So it begins! No matter which one of us lives, the body you’re standing in will crack and blow away. And you will fight. But when you fight, you’ll fight alone. And in the end you’ll see there was no other way. I’ve been here before; I’ve stood where you stand. He called me his hero, the Hero of this Man. But why should we save him when he stands for nothing. If he deserve health, let him stand for himself! We’ve given everything we can. There are no heroes left in this man. He’ll watch you die to save his way of life. He will not stand here by your side. Suddenly ProtoJitters stops. His eyes fall on his father. The man who created him and let him fail, only to be consumed by fear and doubt. His face changes almost imperceptibly. Nothing changes but his eyes. Then, as quickly as he'd stopped, ProtoJitters leaps off of the shattered robots and lands in the midst of the remaining doubt army. Throwing his bare hand into the side of one doubt robot, ProtoJitters sends him flying into the ranks. Three, four doubt robots fall under ProtoJitters’ powerful blow. He destroys his own legions as he makes his way to the front of the line. He stands alone in front of MegaJitters. “We’ve given everything we can. There are no heroes left in this man. So let him watch as we decide his very fate in kind.†The air is thick with smoke. ProtoJitters makes no move, but stands, at some distance, at the ready. MegaJitters, still fighting to fully grasp the truth of the situation, raises from his knees. His weapon raised hesitantly, MegaJItters locks eyes with his brother but breaks free seconds later. His eyes dart over the crowd searching for Dr. Jitters. His father's eyes are on the ground. Dr. Jitters can watch no more. The crowd of emotions watches with fiery intensity. MegaJitters’ eyes fix once again on ProtoJitters. His weapon drops to his side. This internal fight between who I wanted to be 10 years ago and who I want to be now that I have a clearer understanding for a reasonable goal has led me to this final showdown. This is where my next challenge begins and I become what I want to be; slimmer, stronger, faster and with the ability to do what I know to be right, even if it’s not easy to do. All my old self-doubt and unrealistic expectations must be destroyed. But they are still haunting me. This is what I hear as I begin my challenge. The Sons of Fate MegaJitters: “I will not fight you (ProtoJitters: You have no choice). I’ll stand beside you (I stand alone). You’re still his hero (Then he is a fool). This cannot be the only way (You will see)! He doesn’t deserve this (When this is through). Now more than ever (This man will fail), we are his hope (He would not stand)! He now knows better (He would not fight). He is now ready (He never will). Even now there is hope for him (My father’s words)! Your father loved you (He still believes?). His heart was broken (His only weakness). His greatest strength (Now we shall see)! You are not evil (if he will stand). You are not broken (beside his hero). We both know he’ll stand to fight. ProtoJitters: “You still don’t get it. He is no hero. This man is doomed.†ProtoJitters turns to face the man who made him, “You will never have another hero. You will never have another chance. You will fall because you never tried to stand for yourself!†The Better Parts of Me: “Destroy him, you can save us! Destroy him, you’re our only hope! KILL PROTOJITTERS!†No one saw the blow, but the change was obvious. The two brothers stood feet apart. Both in pain. Only ProtoJitters fell. His knees hit the ground. His arms followed. Before he could fall any further MegaJitters was at his side. The brothers, the Sons of Jitters, embraced. ProtoJitters was dying. Nothing could stop that now. ProtoJitters looked up through strained eyes and tried to speak. At first nothing came. Summoning all his remaining strength, ProtoJitters whispered these words into his brother's ear: “If this man… tells this story… to his children… as the sleep… maybe someday… they’ll see a hero… is just a Man… who knows he is free.†ProtoJitters was dead. The crowd seemed pleased. MegaJitters finally understood. This Man needed a hero that was willing to do not only what was needed, but what was the right path. Doubts in my Head: “He could not save himself. How could he save us? For all the fear he spread, (MegaJitters: As I live,) your brother failed us. (There is no laziness that will stand.) There’s nothing he could do. (And I will finish) You had no choice. (what was started) Why do you cry for him? (The fight of ProtoJitters!) You are our hero. The fallen body of his brother at his feet, MegaJitters removed his helmet and said his prayer. The remaining doubt robots looked at their broken leader, then at MegaJitters. Without orders, they would neither advance nor retreat. With eyes full of peace, MegaJitters looked over the whole of this Mans feelings, turned his eyes back to the doubt robot army and put his helmet back on his head. The doubt robots immediately turned from MegaJitters and cast their eyes towards the fortress. Dr. Lazy stood high above the doubt robots, high above the crowd of emotions, high above their heroes. With a wave of his hand, the doubt army had their orders. They advanced on the crowd to punish them for their thoughts of rebellion. MegaJitters was ready. No more would this man be afraid of the work required to obtain his goals. He will not fail. He will stand by MegaJitters to save himself. I will no longer be afraid to improve myself because I may fail. So long as I try, I can never truly fail. I will become MegaJitters. To do this thing, I must be strong, swift and right. Quest: Fit comfortably into my size 38 pants that I held onto for years. Right now, I am at 39 (technically in 40's cause they don't make 39s) Goal 1 - STRONG: Lift heavy things 3 times a week with a 5-10lb progression each week starting at 45 lbs. It’s a small start, but my arms are not well developed yet. I will change this. I will have to see what I have available in my house to lift other than books and my kids. Body weight training also going to happen twice weekly. - STR Goal 2 - SWIFT: Cardio three times a week, 20 minutes at a time. I am working my jump rope skills up to this, so I will run for the minutes I don’t make it on the rope. – STA & CON Goal 3 - RIGHT: Track everyday on My Fitness Pal. I have become lax in this. I know I need to eat better and this will help me out. – CON & WIS Life Goal: Well, this one is hard. I was going to try to get a Disney Trip together for my family, but I have a basement that needs to have mold professionally removed. I think I have to go with my family’s overall health first. So, I will raise $1,000 per week (I know!) to that end. Now, I know what you may be thinking; ‘Unobtainable goal’. I would normally agree with you, but, for 6 weeks, this will be accomplished by working a second job nights and weekends and my stained glass projects. I won’t be able to keep that pace up for more than 6 weeks, but as I figure it, it will be enough to make this a reality.
