    NeverThatBored Does a Heckin' Relax

    Captain Rangerbrain, reporting for duty! My last challenge was all about paying more attention to what I actually WANT to be doing with my time. I thought it would be more about relaxing and video games and maybe some domestic rangering, but it turns out that it's mainly studying Japanese and going to Crossfit a million times a week. So, I embraced that! And I actually do feel a little more relaxed and content with my day-to-day choices and routines. That said, there are still things I want to work on that will help me relax, either physically or mentally. And also pullups. Historically, I have about 673 goals every challenge and I can't say this challenge will be any better. I loosely chose goals that relate to relaxing, but also I couldn't narrow it down, so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 1. Mobility Goal: Pick a mobility option each week and do the thing In Week 1 I'm going to do a 7 day mobility challenge. Does anybody else want to do this with me??? 7 days in a row of any mobility option you want to do. Weeks 2-5 I'll choose as I go, but options include: 3x weekly yoga videos at home Sign up for actual yoga membership at place nearby for the month and start going Do MWOD free trial and do at least 4 videos that week Do weekly 45 minute gymnastics stretching video + at least 40 minutes of other freeform stretching throughout the week 2 & 3: Self-Directed Exercise Goal: Pullups + Walking Walk or at least sit outside daily, even just 5 minutes Do pullup work 2x/week 4: Driving Goal: Drive somewhere new 1x/week It doesn't have to be far or hard, just somewhere I've never driven before 5: Food goals Goal: Weekly Rotating Food Goal Options include: Don't multitask while I eat (eat slowly) Protein with every meal Freggies with every meal Eat whole grains with every meal Protein AND colorful freggies with every meal Limit "dessert" foods to 1x/day, with one day where I skip them entirely Play "the hunger games" against my gut and refuse to eat until I'm really certain I'm actually hungry Bonus goals: Weekly relaxation activity (bubble bath, massage, reading outside in the grass, whatever) Job activities To Do: Make an appointment with orthopedist about my shin issues Get out on my damn bike Figure out what I'm doing with swimming Get a car wash There are probably other to-do-list items I can't think of right now, so TBD Final Goal List: Weekly choose-your-own mobility goal Pullup work 2x/week Walk/get outside daily Drive one new place/week Rotating weekly food goal I think my prize for the challenge will be an accupressure mat, which I've been curious about for a long time and theoretically should also support the relaxing. I might switch it up and get a hammock to sling up on trees instead though. I win with an 80% success rate. I might also consider setting some mini-prizes later on for the bonus goals, etc.
