Mal: I had a good day. Simon: You had the Alliance on you, criminals and savages... Half the people on the ship have been shot or wounded including yourself, and you're harboring known fugitives. Mal: Well, we're still flying. Simon: That's not much. Mal: It's enough. The last two months have been interesting, to say the least. But I'm still here, I'm still flying, and I'm still feeling relatively positive. This will be a very KISS challenge. Due to the last two months, I've gained a bit of weight (comfort eating; less movement). My body is also feeling really stiff and weak. I potentially have 2-ish months before any further treatment, and it's time to fix things rather than wallow in it. Goals: 1. Stop eating like an asshole I'm not going to make a bunch of little rules behind eating, since I then tend to use the letter of the law to circumvent the spirit of the law. I know how to be a healthy eater. I just need to do it. No more excuses. No more comfort eating. 2. Follow the plan -Saturday: parkour and silks class -2 times/week: a more intense yoga class or some sort of strength training. Ease into things rather than overdoing. -3 times/week: flexibility and recovery yoga. -Every day, weather permitting: walk at least 2 miles or go swimming. 3. Keep my crazy under control: I just started weaning off of my current anti-anxiety med, and today I also started Tamoxifen. Tamoxifen apparently doesn't play nicely with SSRIs. So, over the course of this challenge, I get to deal with the side effects of no longer being on a med that was working, as well as starting with something that will completely muck up my hormone levels. Maybe it will all be fine.. Maybe I'll be a complete basket case. The plan is to do everything I can to help promote my mental wellbeing. I will take time for myself as needed. I will do yoga or meditation as needed. I'll avoid Dr. Google. I'll stick with healthy sleep practices, like getting off of the electronics, reading, herbal tea, etc. If needed, there is another anxiety med I can try with the tamoxifen. Misc: -Work on the core. My core is too weak for some of the silks moves. -Plan cool vacations.... because there's nothing like confronting your mortality to make you want to bucket list the shit out of stuff. It's also good for my mental health to be able to plan fun future things. -Try to be more present on NF. For obvious reasons, my last two challenges have been pretty self-absorbed. But, I don't need to be that way this time around.
