Consistency is more Important than Theme: Tanktimus' Next Challenge


Recommended Posts

Themes are great when you can think of one. I'm working on being functional at 95. In order for that to happen I need consistency now with good habits. Therefore instead of focusing on not having a theme, I'm focusing on NOT GIVING UP. To be functional at 95 I need to be alive at 95, that means a healthier waistline, physical strength, and mobility. My goals support this. I am a person who does things.

 

1. 8 lift days. I am a person who lifts twice a week, using the juggernaut program as a guide to get STRONG. This has not changed.

 

2. 6 Yoga Days. I am a person who does yoga to get and stay flexible. This promotes anti-fragility and prevents injury. NF yoga is awesome, and I noticed some progress in the last challenge. This stays.

 

3. 6 Walk days. I am a person who goes on walks for physical and mental health. I live next to an awesome trail. It's beautiful and lined with live oaks that are going to stay green all winter. It is energizing for the body to walk, it is energizing for my soul to walk among such beautiful trees. I am a Ranger after all.

 

4. Cooking. I am a person who cooks and eats Paleo. Twice a week I allow myself to vary from this. This is the most important goal for getting my waist down to a healthy level. I'd really like to get my weight down to 240 by the end of the year. I am at the bottom end of pre-diabetes and want it gone by my physical in March. I had allowed 3 variances in the last challenge, it was too much. I also track what I eat on MFP.

 

5. Domestic Rangering. I am a person who keeps his home clean and neat. I do laundry and clean the place regularly. 

 

That's it. Success is the accumulation of the consequences of good choices over time.

 

It's time to accumulate.

I'm a big fan of making themed challenges and then completely ignoring the theme for all subsequent posts. I like your method - cuts out the middle man!

Thanks. Themes really only help me choose gifs to go with goals anyway.

Today is a good day. Did NF Yoga Fire A and it went well and made Lunch. It was broiled salmon, seasoned with Himalyan Pink Salt, Fresh Ground Pepper, Olive Oil (From Spain, really good stuff), smoked paprika and garlic powder. It was incredible. Eight and a half minutes on the second rack with the broiler on. Served it with a salad of lightly microwaved broccoli florets, a sectioned grapefruit, a sectioned navel orange, 1/2 c chopped walnuts, oil and pomegranate infused balsamic vinegar. I reserved half for Sra. Tanque to have with dinner when she came home.
