My goals are geared toward preparing for my introvert hiking adventure in June!  I am super stoked for the trip. I'm hoping it will be rejuvenating and that I might learn a thing or two about myself.

Last challenge  my physical goals were: Move your feet, Endurance, and Strength. I did great on moving daily, pretty good on endurance, and pretty lack luster on strength. I feel that everything needs a bit more work to really settle into habit. Because they went well last time I combined daily movement and endurance into one maintenance task. Strength got it's own task because I really struggled with it.

 

Physical Health:

1. Maintain progress made in last challenge

  • Move your feet - get up an move daily (walk, hike, ruck, run, etc).
  • Endurance 2 times a week - run/walk or ruck

2. Strength train 2 times a week - weights, body weight, core, or ruck.

3.  Make it out for a hike at least twice during the challenge. Somewhere other than the little local nature preserve.

 

Life Goal:
A Cleaner House - do a 5 minute clean up daily before bed. 
Set a timer for five minutes and clean/tidy up. If I'm traveling I can clean/tidy up my luggage, hotel room, or car. If I'm sick in bed I can throw my pile of tissues away or something. I'm considering making this a 100 day project.

 

On Going Projects not part of this challenge:
Daily Fiddle Practice: This is a 100 day project - the goal is 100 straight days. 
Read 24 books in 2018: Only two completed so far

Another hiking adventurer!  I feel like big hiking adventures DOES teach you alot about yourself.  especially those done alone.  Hour after hour talking and hearing no one but yourself.

 

I don't remember if you've described your june hiking adventure.  Have you made up your mind where you want to go and how long you will hike?

I know the general region but haven't settled on which trails. I'm staying at a cabin that I have to hike into, and then plan to do day hikes.

Love the 100 straight days goals. What are you at now for the fiddle?

 

59 days so far! Today will put me at 60. I'm really enjoying it - I think it was originally something people were doing for art projects. I got the idea from instagram. I'm not sure yet if I want to carry it over to non fun things like cleaning - but it does seem like a good way to challenge yourself and set a habit. 

 

My pre-week has gone pretty good - I've tried to keep up with my existing items from last challenge this week so I don't have a big falling off.

Life Challenge:

100 days of Fiddle: 60 days complete - today will make 61!

Introvert Adventure Planning: I RESERVED MY CABIN!!!!  

 

Dilemma:

I got on the scale today and my weight was UP above my top weight. :( I really want to focus my challenges on getting into an exercise routine and not worrying about my weight. I really want to concentrate on what my body can DO instead of trying to make my body be less. I have unsuccessfully been trying to make my body be less for a few years now, and it's crazy making. It stresses me out, I never seem to get it to budge much no matter how perfectly I count calories, and it damages my relationship with my body. But seeing that high number is really hard, and I'm struggling to keep myself from jumping into a diet.

My challenge almost includes a hike. As a small reward ( and to re-center) I have been taking a picture at the turn around spot. Help me breath in and enjoy the senery vs being cought up in the task.


If it interests you. If would be fun to share pictures though out the challenge ( just including the picture in the update posts)

I love this. What a beautiful sentiment.

 

Your introvert hiking adventure sounds amazing!! I'm a little jealous - maybe when my baby grows up a bit I'll plan something like this. ;)  Happy to be following along - your goals look great!

I'll probably take pictures when I hit the trails - I do like nature!

Oh yeah. The world opens up a bit more when you get your bodily autonomy back from your kid. :D

 

Week is off to a slow start on the endurance and strength portions. Rain + needing relax quiet time + going to walmart to pick up the box for a play set for the kiddo really ate up my monday and Tuesday. I can still get them all in if I focus the rest of the week.

 

I'm feeling much better than I was in regards to my weight. It dropped back down to my current normal range. I think it was a combo of salt and time of the month water retention - but PHEW. I ordered the book Body Positive Power while I was feeling super upset and I'm super excited for it to come in. If you're on instagram and having checked out bodyposipanda you really should - she's amazing!

I like this idea. I tend to get task oriented, but it can be overwhelming. Just dedicating 5 minutes could be great.

Exciting!! What area again? I think you said midwest or New England area? Maybe I am thinking of someone else. I like the idea of hike in cabins.

Weight monitoring can be stressful. Especially if you are near your top weight. I weigh daily and am usually good at not freaking out, but sometimes it is too much. There is so much that goes into why you are up so much in one day though, eating late, weighing early, sodium, water levels, and sometimes I swear just not sleeping well. Glad you are feeling better.

I get overwhelmed easily so the 5 minutes really helps with that - it's making a big difference on us keeping up with dishes!

 

I'll be staying in state - so Kentucky! :)

How'd your weekend go??  Any progress on the big trip?

Not too shabby!

 

RULES ADJUSTMENT: Physical labor that works my muscles counts towards a workout! I realized I partially wasn't making it to the gym for strength training my first week because I was doing yard work. Like digging up a garden. And helping carry and lift a swing set. I was tired and sore after these activities so I feel like they count gosh darn it.

 

Week 1 Review

Maintain Progress: 9/9

Move your feet: 7/7 

Endurance: 2/2

Strength: 2/2

Hike: Got a hike in!!!! One more to go this challenge. :)

 

Life Challenge:

Daily Clean Up: 7/7

 

Other Projects:

Read 24 books in 2018: 3 finished so far.  I haven't made much progress in reading Devil in the White City. I'm enjoying it but it's been hard to concentrate at work & lunch time is my main reading time.

100 days of Fiddle: I made it to 66 and then missed a day so my streak is broken. I'm still super proud of myself though and I'll probably try again soon.

Introvert Adventure Planning:  I made a check list to help organize my planning progress in my bullet journal.

 

Pictures from my hike, because KY is a pretty place.

So exciting to see those pictures. Thank you very much for sharing [emoji779]. will you be hiking that trail a few times throughout the summer or probably only once? It'll be fun to watch how the trail progresses through the year if it is a regular Trail.
