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.
alienjenn - TMNTs So last challenge I tried to center myself and get back to who I amâ€¦ get back to the basics of lifeâ€¦ and I am getting thereâ€¦ but I wanna get back to what I loveâ€¦ and I LOVE the turtles!! Teenage -Tough them turtles are some tough dudesâ€¦ and I think they go to the gym 2xweek or more! I will go to the gym twice weeklyâ€¦ ALTHOUGH I reserve the right to substitute a big hike for a gym visit Mutant Money Makeover - Interestingly enough I am making the most money I have ever made in my entire life and I am more broke than I have ever been. I bought the book (Dave Ramsey) Total money makeover. My friend (not sure who she is going to be when she joins NF so I am gonna call her Dâ€¦ until I know her name here) and I are going to read this bookâ€¦ 1 chapter in the week between challenges and then 2 chapters per week for 6 weeksâ€¦ there are also worksheets to work thoughâ€¦ I intend to get my finances in order!! I am taking 6 months off in 3 years and I have to have a significant amount of money set asideâ€¦ also I am not getting any younger here!! I have to prepare for a fabulous retirement!! http://rebellion.ner...money-makeover/ Ninja Play ninjas know how to have a good timeâ€¦ especially THESE ninjas!! I havenâ€™t entirely decided how to define this goalâ€¦ other than I want to practice nonstandard movementâ€¦ jumping on things (especially flatfoot jumps up the stairs and such)... the forest floor is lavaâ€¦ maybe rolling down hillsâ€¦ just playing and being a kidâ€¦ we donâ€™t get OLD until we stop playing!!!~ Turtle - slow steady turtle miles!! last challenge my goal was to walk at least 2 miles a dayâ€¦ with 2 of my days including runsâ€¦ i am needing to run through the zombie run 5k trainer program againâ€¦ i had gotten to where i was able to run 5k consecutivelyâ€¦ and i lost itâ€¦ so i am working on it againâ€¦ I am training for a spartan in august! i have to be able to run! and be fastâ€¦ and so my goal this time is 3 miles per dayâ€¦ and at least one 10 mile day per week S - spiritual I feel MUCH better when I spend time with God every dayâ€¦ I am not going to quantify this because I HATE the idea of â€œpunching the clockâ€ not gonna say I will pray x minutes a day or I will read y pages in my bible or I will do whateverâ€¦ but I have been seriously slacking here and I need to remedy this!!! grading will be based on effort and not achievement â€“ achievement will come with sufficient effort TL:DR teenage tough = gym 2xweek mutant money makeover = read the book do the stuff ninja play = PLAY! turtle miles = 3 miles per day/ 10 miles one day per week s- spirital = time with God daily
