  1. I will keep the introduction short, as my challenge will once again be a continuation of the last challenge. The pattern is really working for me, so I intend to keep it, with only minor changes along the way. Primary Section - Taijiquan and Qigong 1. Continue taiji and qigong as a daily habit. The plan is to take some time each day to practice taiji and qigong. 20 - 30 minutes of practice would be ideal, but I will make compromises with my other priorities in life as needed. Break it up throughout the day, as needed, whatever it takes. Make the opportunity. 2. Continue t
  2. So, here we are for the next challenge. I basicly want to keep doing what worked for me the last months and finetune it a little bit. I'm also thinking about to use the information from one of of Steve's recent articles. But i could not really think through on what habits to work on how. Will use the thread to think about it. Here is Steve's Article: https://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/how-to-build-healthy-habits-that-stick/ Ok, here are the challenge task: Habits: 30 minutes of daylight lamp Mon:☐ Tue:☐ Wed:☐ Thur:☐ Fri:☐ No youtube on phone: Mon:☐ Tue:☐
  3. Good morning Druids. This is more-or-less a continuation of the same challenge I did last time (Journey to Wudang Shan). The routine worked so very well, that I want to continue on with it. There is still plenty to challenge me within the same routine. So let's get to it. Primary Section - Tai Chi and Qigong 1. Continue Tai Chi and Qigong as a daily habit. The plan is to take some time each day to practice Tai Chi and/ or Qigong, in some capacity. 20 - 30 minutes of practice would be ideal, but I will make compromises with my other priorities in life as needed. Break it up thr
  4. Ok, here is my first challenge for the new year. Following the habits didn't worked at all last challenge. So decided to concentrate on the most important one try to get it right. The rest is basicly a continuation of things that are working. I've been restricting pasta, pizza and sweets to the friday, saturday, sunday. This challenge i want to further restrict my cheat days to saturday and sunday. I've started to use my bike for some parts of my way to work. This time i will increase the distance. (approx. 25 minutes). Starting Tomorrow( 2th January). Check: ✓ Fai
  5. Ok lets start this. I liked the setup from the last challenge pretty much. But life head other plans and i fell of the truck. So this time, i will use the setup from last time with some fine tuning. I will start tomorrow. Tracking is done with habithub.

  6. Here we go again... What worked last challenge: * Avoiding liquid calories proves pretty easy. Had some one day slips, but immediately got back on track. This actually easy. But my sugar cravings increased. Will keep it this challenge. * No social media on my phone: No going good for about two months. Big, big game changer. I slipped a little with facebook. But twitter and youtube are still good. Will keep it this challenge. I tend to fail when i have to wait and nothing to read. So i will keep my ereader well stocked. What didn't worked so well: *
  7. The thick wooden front gate of the monastery opens slowly. At first nobody seems to notice but than one of the acolytes walks over and pulls the gate open in one swift movement. A man falls into the yard. He was leaning against the gate. He looks pretty bruised, the shield he carries with him is split and the sword has seen better days. He seems to be barely conscious. Quickly the acolyte calls for help. The man is picked up and brought to a bed so can rest. The other acolytes will see what they make of him after a weeks up. But he already seems familiar... Hello everybody. I'm st
  8. "The monastry door opens a bit and through slips a student who hasn't been seen for a while by the other monks. He roamed the lands for while and he looks slighty bruised like life happend to him a few times. But he has a warm smile on his face and seems happy that he is home again. He gets back to his usual spot in the yard and starts training his forms again." After a skipped challenge i'm trying get back on track. I want to do the following: Each Day: * get to bed before 12 am. * sleep 7 hours * drink two litres of water * meditate ten minutes
  9. The Republic and the Jedi Order are in engaged in active conflict. 6 Months ago contact was lost to 47 different worlds in the outer rim. The expedition force sent to investigate also disappeared. Shortly after this contact to an additional 18 worlds was lost. This time the republic and the jedi order sent mixed task force of regular troops and jedi. Above an unnamed desert plant the task force was ambushed by much larger fleet. The surviving jedi reported that multiple very strong dark side users were in command of the attacking fleet. The battle took about 4 hours and only 3 task force
  10. for when he wakes he will move mountains... or he will be a bit less sleepy with a better morining routine. In the last months my morning routine has been a catastrophe. I always got 7 hours of sleep, but was nearly always in bed after 0 am. This let to waking late and a pretty hectic morning. I want to change this. So the plan this time: 1. Lights out by 11:45 pm (When the next day is a work day) 2. Seven hours of sleep 3. On my way to work by 8 am (Obviously on work days) I'm still trying to meditate, do forms and Kettlebell and go to taiji class
  11. Here I am again. After a few very enlightening challenges I have the feeling I've come to a crawl. But that's better than a standstill, isn't it? For April, I'll return to the basics. Nothing fancy and not too much. Although my goals seem repetitive (and I have a nasty voice telling me "AGAIN? You are incompetent, you can't do anything, you're not making progress!", which is a little difficult to ignore), I'm still... well, crawling. Soon I'll be able to walk, I hope. Goals for April: Dairy free (with the exception of selfmade Ghee). That's not an easy one - I don'
  12. Hello, so here comes my challenge. I want to use this one to get back on track with the stuff that worked previously. So this means: Each day: 7 Hours of sleep 10 Minutes of meditation 5 minutes of training (taiji or KB Swings / TGU's) 2 Liters of water During the challenge: log every expanse in ynab don't miss taiji class Sorry, for not writing that much. During the weekend i had a quite unpleasent conversation with a buddy. I'm not sure how the handle the relationship between us after this conversation. So my thoughts are
  13. This challenge i want to focus on my daily stuff. I keep struggeling with my daily training and meditation. I think this is because i don't have fixed time for it. Ideally the time for those things is in the morning. I'm not really a morning person, but want to use this challenge to improve a bit in this direction. Daily: * In bed and lights out by 11:30 pm (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) * Get up at 6:30 pm (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) * 20 minutes of Meditation using headspace * At least 10 minutes of taiji practice or 10 minutes of kettlebell practice We
  14. So here we go for the new year. I want to iron out some things from earlier challenges that worked quite well. On top of that i want to to attack cooking for myself again. For that i will try to establish an group of Accountabilibuddies for inspiration and some kicks in the ass.

  15. This challenge will be a minimal one. I'm pretty busy at the moment, but want to keep doing challenges. During the challenge i want to do the following 4 things daily: 1. I will drink two liters of water. On the weekends i often forget to drink enough and get headaches from this. 2. I will do my Taiji Short form at least 1x. 3. I will get 7 hours of sleep. 4. I will meditate for 20 minutes using headspace. For two weeks i will be on the road and might not be able to post my updates. I will do the daily tracking with an android app.

  17. Originally I wanted to give the Druids a try and posted there. They are great folk over there, but I kept checking out my friends here. So, sorry for leaving you guys and going over there. I am a monk. It hit me like a ton of bricks! The urge to mastery. I have studied and practiced taijiquan (tai chi chuan) for almost 30 years and I cannot manifest the empty mind consistently in combat. I have on several occasions had bullet time happen and evaded things that made me see the promise and potential of taijiquan. Now I want to manifest that empty mind on command. I really resonate with Richard
