"My name is Nymeria. I used to be a spy, until..." "We got a burn notice on you. You're blacklisted." In brief, I practiced martial arts 10 years. Then had kids. Then started rock climbing, then blew out my ACL, rehabbed it, and returned to climbing. A little over a year ago, I took up parkour and became hooked. I still dabble in martial arts stuff, climb occasionally, and do a lot of yoga and arm balancing. My routines are pretty solid, and I'm honestly getting a bit tired of making goals that I don't really care about for the sake of having goals. So, instead I'm going to focus on food and family with the Burn Notice crew. I'll still log all of my workouts, talk incessantly about parkour, and post videos of any of the cool stuff. Eating yogurt with Michael Yogurt is full of protein, which is something I need. The goal is to ensure that every day I do a strength workout, I either drink a protein shake or supplement my workout with some sort of high protein food. Cooking with Fi (but food, not explosives) Fiona is an expert at whipping up homemade C4 and other explosives. I will channel that kitchen expertise into trying new recipes and doing some major cooking projects. The goal is to do at least 2 cooking projects (batch cooking, crock pot, new recipes, etc) each week. Drinking with Sam Axe Sam drinks a lot of booze. My goal is to let Sam have my booze and instead be relatively booze free. Rather than setting a specific quantity for myself, I'm going to just permit myself to drink on special occasions, but otherwise stay dry. Running Ops: This challenge, I'll still spend tons of time in the parkour gym. I'll also lift, do yoga, and maybe climb a bit. But, my main physical focus is going to be participating in PVPs and the mini challenge. So, for each task I do for someone else's challenge or for a PVP, I successfully complete a mission. For each week that I complete the Ranger mini, I successfully complete a mission. I can also complete a mission for each Daily Dare or other Darebee challenge. My goal is to complete 30 Ops by the end of the challenge. Foreign Language: A spy needs to be proficient with other languages. My goal is to finish Duolingo Spanish (I'm close to the end), and then proceed to read at least one children's book or other relatively grammatically simple book in Spanish. Family Time: Michael discovered that Madeline (his mom) could be a valuable part of the team. I want to develop my family team by being more present with my children. That means that I'll spend less time on my phone or computer when my kids are home, and instead spend more time talking to them, playing games with them, and having quality family time.
