Cheetah posted a topic in RangersLocal time is 11.13 pm. It's Sunday night. I should be asleep, but I'm not. I was in bed for an hour, wide awake. I finally got back up. This strategy often works for me. I'll go give it another try after I finish this post. Last challenge didn't go so well for me. I started pretty strong, but I lost all discipline in the middle. I became obsessed with one form of exercise, to the point of not wanting to do any other. Ironically, I had set out at the beginning of the challenge to avoid this very thing. In week four the obsession faded a bit, in part because my doctor and I have upped one of my meds and that seems to have shaken me out of it. So this challenge I'm trying it all again, basically with the same goals I had last time. Food - not exactly a measurable goal, because I'm still following Intuitive Eating principals. But I will do my best to report on how well I follow them each day. Even though there isn't a measurement to track, I still need to hold myself accountable here. It's not numbers, but it's still a healthy habit that needs work and requires discipline. Exercise - As with last challenge, I want to try to exercise every week day. Mostly this will be either taking a walk, doing a KB circuit workout, or doing sets of BW exercises. Any intentional exertion counts. I just have to try to do something every day. I have had really good discipline in the past, so this challenge I'm striving to regain that constancy. Daily Reading - I want to build a habit of hearing the Daily Reading every M-F when I get to work. There's no reason not to; I just have to build the habit. Guitar - this is my lowest priority but it is a self-care item that I want to keep in the mix. I want to practice at least three days each week. Any amount of time with it in my hands counts. I think that's enough to get on with. I'm still studenting, and it's still taking a lot of my time, although the work load in my current classes is less than I've had in the past, which is what will make it possible to take walks some days. I'm still working on my goodreads goal. I'm still striving to be engaged and present with my wife and kids and home and church and job. Good time management continues to be a necessary. If I want to achieve all of my goals, I don't have time to mess around being lazy. Roosevelt called it the Strenuous Life. I think it's good goals to have.
As some of you remember from various drops and hints, I'll be travelling to Antarctica in early February for two weeks on a National Geographic cruise. It's going to be AMAZING. A big part of why I want to go is to see as many penguins as I possibly can, so I figured what better way to theme the challenge leading up to my epic adventure. Let's find some penguins!!!
