Hi All, A long while back I started my NF journey with the Monks. I took some time off of the forums and have bounced around between the different guilds and have found my way back here. Originally the family and I were attending classes at a Kajukenbo dojo but ended up stopping because it didn't fit into our schedule (Getting off work, driving a half hour home, pick up the miniBrowncoat, half hour back to the dojo, hour for class, half hour home plus homework, cooking, household chores, led to burnout right quick). I do miss the activity though, and the miniBrowncoat has been asking if he can go to karate class again. I have a lead on an instructor who lives in our town and would eliminate the driving back and forth. I'm hoping that he will work out and that he also teaches adult classes... And on to the goals Longterm Goal: Weigh less than 180 pounds. Right now I'm weighing in at 250, I want to get healthy to make sure that I can enjoy life with my family. That is the big goal, the short-term goal right now is to hit 240 by the end of the challenge. How to do this: *Fix the eating. I need to get my diet under control. Last challenge I had the goal of starting a Whole30 reset, but that didn't happen. The house wasn't set up enough to make it feasible. Eventually I will do one of these, but for now I'm going to try and focus on cleaner eating. I don't have to be perfect, but I do want to be better. I have the tendency to avoid fruits and vegetables. Eat at least 1 serving of fruit and 2 servings of vegetables each day. Use IF (16/8) at least 5 days a week. Stretch goal: Start tracking what I am eating using MyFitnessPal. This doesn't have to be a long term commitment, but I think it will help me be more mindful of what I am eating and reset my notions of what a normal size meal should be. Move more. I know that food is the main ingredient to losing weight, but being fit and capable is also important. Simple and Sinister 5 times a week. I am finally starting to use the kettlebell again. I started for awhile back in spring, but pushing too fast led to bursitis in my shoulder. I'm starting S&S again, but really trying to ease into it. Right now I am up to 70/100 swings (adding a set of 10 each week) and doing 1 getup on each side. I've also added armbars into the warmup to try and prehab my shoulders. Stretch Goal: Find a place to hang my gymnastic rings. I've got them but haven't used them. I tried hanging them off of my doorway pullup bar but kept slamming my knuckles into the door frame or banging my head into the pullup bar. Adulting. Get the house cleaned. We never really recovered getting the house clean since we got an evacuation notice for the wildfires this summer (we didn't actually have to evacuate, but it was a hectic 2 hours thinking we would have to and ransacking/pillaging the house and loading it into the car). Pick one chore to finish the next day. Actually do it. Totally stealing this concept from Machete. Donate stuff. We have two big boxes to donate of old clothes/toys/stuff that we don't think we can sell. Get it out of the house! Schedule shredding service. Lots of paperwork that has moved with us that needs to be shredded. Find a shredding service that will come to the house and get rid of it for us. Stretch Goal: Start selling stuff. Need to get crap out of the house. Any cash that comes of it is a bonus.
