I am going with Kiki this month. Kiki is Ghibli's heroine of 1989. She is honest and cheerful, hardworking and loyal, and honestly a little lost. She isn't an awesome witch, and when she leaves home for her mandatory year of training away she only really can do one witch thing. Flying. And she's not really good at that either. But she goes and does it anyway. And in way we all know, at least I do, she looses that thing that makes her her, and has to relearn magic from scratch, and she has only herself, and the friends she makes along the way and she figures out how to be what she knows she has to be. A witch. A good one too. So I really could use her spirit right now. I am hitting the books hard, learning what I can about being a trainer and I am not entirely sure if I can do this. But I like giving people tools to make themselves less fragile. And encouraging them to find a healthier person inside themselves, doing good things for themselves... Work. 8h / week. Do something productive for me being a trainer. Plan classes, read school material, work on homework. FlyLady. 15min / day. Do some adulting at home every single day. No doing heaps one day then lazying off for days on end. Act like the badass you know you can be. Drink water. (every day) Eat well. (a good choice each day) Move daily (DailyDare or yoga 5 days per week = non-class days) That's the plan so far. I will log in my bujo (bullet journal), and from time to time I will dazzly you with the pretty of it... Or with food porn... or you know, being spring, with nature being pretty. You have been warned. I do love this community. And the amazing people in it. Katrin
Thank you, thank you, thank you, spirits in the machine, humbly we thank thee. This thread will have loads and loads of bujo (bullet journal) pages posted to it. As well as all kinds of gifs and pictures. I am adapting a bit from various Rangers and Rebels, thank you to you wonderful people, these roads we travel, this life we forge, it's better for the company and inspiration shared on these boards here. Talking about inspiration... @Terra You are an inspiration. Always adapting, pushing, improving. Your year of superheroines, I'm copying it - with my own twist: This Challenge I will incorporate Studio Ghibli's Arrietty @Tanktimus the Encourager Sometime, somewhere you mentioned (I hope I remember it right and it was actually you) making the mental leap to do Healthy Person Things because you are leaving behind who you were and are becoming the Health Tank. I am stealing that. Kinda. Also with a twist. I always think "when I grow up, I want to be able to do that too". I'm grown up. I am going to do three specific Badass Person Things each day this challenge. Move: attempt a freelatics workout or on bad days do a Yoga with Adriene quicky. Eat: mindfulness, good choices. Drink: water. I currently drink way, way too little water, so I'm fighting my way back up to a (0,7l) bottle a day, eventually up to 2 per day, increase on consistent success. I am doing self-care in form of daily Sits with Tea sessions to log, sit in my favourite chair and soak up some sunlight (in my living room, still too chilly outside) and enjoy inactivity and absence of schedule related pressures. And lastly I am grading the 15' of FlyLady decluttering / cleaning / whatnot daily. I have a pile of partially incorporated habits that helped me to FLY for a while, but I lost my step, and I am now choosing to go back and at least do something every day. Every. Day. Only with timer counts, conscious choice to work and rest. No stressing about the apartment all day long. Work, rest, breathe. Repeat as energy permits. I'm tracking but not grading classes, 'cause I'll go to all of them, if I'm healthy. No excuses. Running, I'm growing to love running, we run thursdays during class, even though I'm not a huge fan of running in circles indoors. I am aiming for one additional run per week, outdoors. No beating myself up if plague protocols interfere. Weight, daily with trend's moving average and rarara... I'll try to summarize Arrietty briefly. She's tiny, but fierce. Because of her size and upbringing she has a unique perspective on the world surrounding her and her family. Seeing the world differently, is something I think I could really use sometimes. When her life is turned into upheaval she doesn't lament, she confronts the responsible party, whose unasked-for help brings disaster. When her mother is caught, she makes an ally, asks for help, but not like any kind of damsel in distress. When her possible extinction is proposed, she shows some backbone.
