It's time to kick 2017 off with an awesome challenge! I decided to draw inspiration from one of my childhood favorites: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. My main goal this year is to 1. start longboarding and 2. be able to do headstands. And in order to do that, I need lots of flexibility. And what better inspiration (I almost typed "butter" instead of "better" lol) than these guys? Each of the turtles have a dominant trait. Granted, some of the dominant traits- like Raphael's temper- aren't good or something I want to achieve, but each brother has a positive attribute that I would like to achieve. Since I have a teething 6-month-old, weeks will alternate from a busy week to an easy week. And I'll post my workout plan for the current week. Let's Break It Down! Leonardo Leo is the leader. Leo is good at making plans but has to constantly work on finding ways to adpt them to work with his brothers. My Leo-goals are to 1) make a workout plan and stick with it, 2) make a diet plan and stick with it, and 3) to find balance because you can't be a good leader without being a bit flexible. Raphael Raph is the fighter. Sure is short temper often gets him into trouble but his physical strength makes him a great ally during a fight. My Raph-goals are to 1) do wall headstands, 2) planks and side planks, and 3) complete 1 strala workout to build my upper body. Michelangelo Mikey is the clown. He's the goofball out of the bunch but he does know how to have fun. One thing I struggle with is letting live overwhelm me and basically "try to adult" while stressing myself out waaaaaaaaaaay to much. My Mikey-goals are 1) to go outside and explore, and 2) play either piano or guitar for 5 minutes a day. Yes, I know that's not a lot of time but I have a never-ending cycle of laundry and dishes and a baby that has discovered how to pull things off of shelves... so I think 5 minutes will suffice for now. Donatello Donny is the brains. He's the science/tech guy. Donny is not known for impressive physical strength but for having a sharp mind. My Donny-goals are 1) read 30 minutes a day, 2) try meditation, and 3) read 1 Psalm a day.
Here is my list of goals for this challenge. I'll fill out where my starting point is at a later point, but wanted to at least get this up here. Goal 1: Eat at least 80% paleo. Allowance of 42 Non-Paleo Tokens (NPTs) (accounting for 3 meals and up to 2 snacks per day)Goal 2: Lose at least 2.5% body fat. Starting point: 28.58%Goal: 26% or lowerGoal 3: Complete the NF Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Workout 2-3 times per week. Life Goal: Get rid of 50 more pounds of stuff. Onward!
