  1. Snuggles New Year Bang!

(The To-Do Chart has returned!) In the past my chore chart is a wonderful indicator of what works and where I need work. It gives me a weekly visual so I know very quickly where I need to focus my energies. I will use this along with my Fit-bit to track food and activities. Activities include French, Knife Defense, Knitting, Lockpicking, Game Night, etc. Week #1 of my challenge: Week #2 of my challenge: Week #3 of my challenge: Week #4 of my challenge: Week #5 of my challenge: Builder Goals: I will be starting fresh so this challenge will be spent focusing on creating a baseline.

  4. RoachRex is back at it!

    Hey everyone, I kind of forgot about last time around but I'm back! and I even lost some weight while I was gone! So let's keep it up! Challenges: Go to the GYM at least 2x a week!! I finally signed up at a gym! It's close by my house and open when i'm omw to work! I'm going to be following this plan from so I have an idea of what to do at the gym lol. Stay under 1500 calories 6x a week According to myfitnesspal this is the number of calories for me to lose weight on. ( y'all can follow me there, I'm still RoachRex ). 7th day is cheat day! (saturday is my cheat day). I am starting to learn about macros but tracking is a pain so I think I'll stick with this version for the time being. Level up in cooking! This time around my goal is sort of two-fold. I have a basic understanding of the frying process but I don't know a thing about spices or herbs so it always comes out a bit bland (salt helps sure, but I want more!) So i'm gonna start trying to experiment with herbs, spices, and marinades! I want to eat healthy but I also want it to taste good!! Get outside! I've got some gear together so I really want to go camping!! But if I can't go camping, then at least I want to go on a day hike!! Weather may not permit me to go camping (I live in socal and our wild places are kind of a little bit on fire) but in that case then I'll try to at minimum go for a hike in a local park or botanical garden or something. Ideally more than once but, we'll see.
  5. Newbie here... I wanted to insert some .gifs but my uploads fail... Oh well, on with my story and 2018 challenge. I found hiking or rather hiking found me for nothing better to do in 2009. I met like-minded hikers who introduced me to lists and I was never the same again. Who knew there is a Catskills 3500 List (which I have completed both the Regular and Winter lists), or the ADK 46er List (which I try to do whenever I can drive up to New York), and of course, my epic quest, the 50 States High Points List (started in 2010 and have done 43 out of 50). I guess one can never have enough lists. Then in 2013, never having really run before, out of the blue, I decided to sign up for the 24-Hour NJ Trail Series and ended up running 50 miles in 15 hours. You never know how far you can go until you try. This began my love affair with running. I love to run on dirt and trails and hike up mountains too. And yes, the start of another list - 50 States Ultra (3 out of 50). Since moving here in NC, there have not been many opportunities to hike. So, I just run on nearby trails or in the gym. Sadly, I miss the Northeast. There is nothing like the enthusiasm and great vibes you get from fellow hikers there. For my 2018 Challenge 1, I tend to start off excited and all raring to go, but if I miss two days in a row that annihilates my running streak. I get messed up and start feeling down, have no motivation to run and beat myself up for being lazy. So, I'm hoping some scouts come to my rescue and push me back on track and keep me accountable - run, walk, crawl. whatever... Let's do more running than resting! I'm going to keep it simple so I can focus and build on small wins to hit my goals. Start: 2018-Jan-01 End: 2018-Feb-04 Fitness Goal 1: Run at least 4x a week Fitness Goal 2: 5x5x5 Core I can run long but my core needs work. So, I thought of doing this routine at least 5 days a week to build some base. I tend to get bored if it has nothing to do with running or hiking. So, baby steps. If 5 minutes of core doesn't kill me, I guess it should make me stronger! 1 min Jumping Jacks 1 min Squats 1 min Lunges 1 min Push-ups 1 min Mountain Climbers Fitness Goal 3: Evening Stretch Routine Work has me sitting in front of a computer for hours. A 10-min or so evening stretch since my lower back hurts at the end of the day. Level Up Goal: Gratitude Practice I keep a gratitude journal, but have not been consistent. So, write 5 things I am grateful, thankful for everyday in my gratitude journal.
  6. I hope everyone had an awesome holiday. This was a tough one for me personally because it was our first without Papaw. But it ended up being drama-free, and I was surprised to find myself less concerned about gifts and money and instead enjoying time with family and friends. My challenge set-up this time may be edited later as ideas/problems/concerns arise. I plan to continue certain daily habits, such as early rising, prayer, getting outside/earthing/stretching in the morning, Bible study, etc. but they probably won't be mentioned in the challenge goals below. As promised, this challenge will be LOTR themed, focusing mostly on the book series (but with plenty of gifs, pics, vids, memes, etc. from all sources). Each goal is named after a poem/song from the Lord of the Rings book series. Quest 1: The Road Goes Ever On (Walking/Hiking) walk at least 10,000 steps per day at least one 30 minute mindful/adventure walk per day at least one 30 minute hike per week Quest 2: The Riddle of Strider (Strength/Fitness/Nutrition) at least 3 bodyweight/Spartan/HIIT style strength workouts per week at least 1 day per week of 4 all-out 80+ yard sprints (with 10 second rests between each) at least 2 5ks per week (aim for every Saturday and Wednesday) eat whole food/Paleo as often as possible (aim for 2/3 meals per day) intermittent fasting at least 5 days per week (not eating before 11:00am) drink at least 64oz of water per day every day Quest 3: I Sit Beside the Fire and Think (Meditation/Mindfulness/Study) meditate at least 20 minutes every day read at least 20 minutes every day (Bible and LOTR, of course) at least 1 outdoor ("beside the fire") meditation per week (Fri, Sat, or Sun?) at least one language session/lesson using Duolingo Quest 4: Song of Beren and Luthien (Love/Affection) at least 30 minutes uninterrupted time per day with my queen at least 1 "date night" per week with my queen (don't be picky about this; the key is to spend time alone together) speak the top love languages of my queen (acts of service, quality time, and words of affirmation) to bed with my queen every night, even if this means moving princess Arabella to another bed (see past challenges)
