Book: Water Also known as the Tale of Tzippi and the Too Many Tags I am returning to the Rebellion after a long battle with a demon of depression. The dark spirit swept in as I was weakened by becoming a mother. I am doing better now, and am just beginning to practice Tai Chi, which (along with the fine spring weather) is inspiring me to respawn here, as a monk. One goal under each bending style is a constant habit, one-two one-time goals under are straight up success if done. Thanks for the help refining my foals, @sarakingdom Goal One: Plantbending ☆ Eat 2 fruits and veg per day. (If this gets too easy, up it to 3). ☆ Research and plan an indoor greens growing system. ☆ Shop for weeStockings sized garden tools, pit on wish list. Goal Two: Waterbending ☆ Exercise every day to support Tai chi. On class days, go to class. Other days, Hammer, walk, yoga . . . ☆ Sweep back deck for morning practice. Goal Three: Cloudbending ☆ Harness the breath like an Airbender by Meditating 5 minutes daily. ☆ DONE. Get reusable travel mug again. A nice ceramic one with a silicone lid. ☆ For week with April 1st, make a new Gratitude BuJo spread. ☆ With first paycheck, sign up for Calm premium subscription.
Challenges during this challenge: I'm going to a big old conference for work, which is great, but as we've all seen before, is really tough on me (man I feel like I *just* went through this). I'm tabling at my first zine fest!!! YAY! The day after the conference! BOO! I'm launching a Patreon with an accompanying daily poetry project. Family reunion, too. This challenge will be ripe with opportunities to be over-tired, self-critical, and stressed, so I'm emphasizing self-care: Time spent outside, sleeping, eating veggies, drinking water, reading excellent books, maybe even playing some video games?! All those things. No backlog work. LET'S DO THIS! Quest: Workout 3 times per week...plus one extra. I've been hitting three a week pretty regularly, and I feel sometimes like I could fit in one more. So, I don't want to go up to four times a week, but I *would* like to get an extra one in. Quest: Salad 4 times per week. Still need to make this habit stick. Quest: Set up my relaxing chair outside on the patio and sit on it at least 5 times a week. BREATHE. GET SUNLIGHT. FEEL CALM. Quest: Lights out by 10:30 pm every work night. I'm lights out by 11 right now, so this extra half hour should be okay. As usual, conference week will have its own rules. Since the first quarter of the year ends half-way through the challenge, I also revisited my goals from the first challenge of the year: Feeling okay about these goals, for the most part. On the challenge after this one, I'll be re-focusing on the backlog stuff and will post a new set of Q2 goals. I am not riding my bike much, which bums me out. Not sure how to get that happening more regularly again. I think warmer weather will help. For those tuning in, I'm a nonbinary/genderqueer/woman chronic overachiever type who mostly does body-weight workouts at home, plus occasional forays into other workout types. I also write a bunch (poems, zines, novels) and am going to be launching a Patreon in April. I am headed to a big OSS conference in April, where I'm speaking and doing other terrifying things, and I am also planning a small tabletop game convention for May. Big couple of months. (Thanks, RogueLibrarian, for the idea of a summary!)
OKAY! So, last challenge was a keep-on-keepin-on kind of challenge. I'm gonna mix it up and see how it goes this time, which means zero week = experimentation time! I've been thinking I'll try a monthly theme. This month: JUST SAY NO. I want to be more aware of all the stuff I let into my life (both physical and emotional) and I want to say no to more of it. I don't need to help that random recruiter on LinkedIn! I don't need to go check out that sale! NO. And now, draft one of my quests: Q1: Daily salads! I'm tired of eating freezer lunches at work, so I'm planning a daily salad (see last challenge for details). My goal is to eat salads four of five work days. Q2: Skill practice/flexibility work I'd like to eventually tackle the GMB Elements course, but my major concern at this point is the time investment (daily workouts are not my current jam). I currently stretch after workouts (so, approx 3 times per week). I'd like to add one session of stretching & skill practice. I'm thinking hamstring stretches (maybe the splits challenge but without the challenge part) and/or handstand work. Mostly I just want to start building some fun exercise into my schedule. Q3. Social media ramp-down I check social media more than I'd like to. This week I want to just *track* how much I time I spend on facebook & twitter (using TimeStats chrome extension). Q4. TBD! Possibly something to help me remember my monthly theme, or possibly not. We'll find out soon enough!
