I bought a house!! So, I need to make some priority out of getting my home in order and get into the groove of working out, commuting and eating right. My commute has gotten a little longer and a lot less reliable (based on one week of commuting I’ve done thus far). I’ve got a buffet of options open to myself and my wife including commuter rail, bus, and car ride. I need to weigh the pros and cons of each and get it stabilized so I can get some work outs in some time. Being summer I need to focus on getting the jungle in my backyard tamed and the lawn cut reasonably for the next few weeks. We have almost a solid acre of hilly grass and the previous owners couldn’t keep up with the landscaping. Memorial Day weekend will included the purchase of a chainsaw and an extraordinary amount of yard work. Hopefully by the end of the challenge I will have things down to maintenance level before jumping into setting up our own plans. Right now my yard is about 20% maintained (I managed to run over the overgrown weeds with a lawn mower and pull a few weeds). I want the yard to 100% maintenance. Weeds pulled, lawn mown (evenly), edges weed-whacked, trees trimmed/cut down. I still want to try and get bigger by the end of the year, but right now I need to focus on maintaining my food plans and getting food for the week planned, purchased and prepped. I want to gain muscle mass, not a layer of blubber. Unfortunately for my celiac-ridden self I accidentally moved to some kind of gluten free Shangri-La. Chinese food less than a mile away and fried chicken with fries and onion rings a few miles the opposite direction. As if I weren't doing enough, I also want to maintain my running endurance so I need to get some runs in. With the major landscaping I’d say I need to limit myself to about 15k a month. Goals: Commute: At work on time for summer hours and commute planned for the rest of the year. Yard Projects: 1 major project per week minimum. Food: Plan meals and prep lunches/breakfasts Exercise: Run a minimum of 15k per week. That’s low, but I’m doing a lot of exercise with the yard work.
