Dyego Posted May 23, 2018 Report Share Posted May 23, 2018 In the [not-quite]immortal words of Bender B. Rodriguez: My last challenge was December of 2016. In the mean time I've actually not done too bad for myself, so this challenge is not a restart. This challenge is about me keeping the habits that I've begun to build over the last two months, and then building on those habits. As such, my goals for this challenge are simple: 1) Keep my daily habits going I have six daily habits that I work on, but they are kept specifically vague so I don't ever have to feel boxed in, which is what tended to happen with my old daily habits of even something as simple as "walk 5 minutes." What if it's too hot? What if I don't feel like walking? So here are my six daily goals, which I will be keeping track of on a spreadsheet probably. [0 - 0 | W0] Exercise [0 - 0 | W0] Creative [0 - 0 | W0] Spiritual [0 - 0 | W0] Veggies [0 - 0 | W0] Vitamins [0 - 0 | W0] Stretches Updated Rules: This will be a Win / Loss schedule, with a trailing Current Winning (or losing) Streak, as well as an explanation of what was done for each. I have 4 Bye Days per this challenge. During a Bye Day, anything I don't accomplish doesn't count as a loss, but anything I do accomplish keeps my wins going! 2) Increase the potency of my daily habits More days than not I simply do the minimum required of the habit, IE I drink V8 juice as my veggies. And while keeping the habit going is excellent, I'd like to start increasing my thresholds. Under my stretches, I've been doing a pseudo-yoga set for awhile that includes planks, and I've been keeping them pretty steady at 20-30 seconds. By the end of this month, I'd like to be able to hold a 60 second plank just once, but get my average up to 30-40. This #2 goal of increasing potency, however, will not override my #1 goal. If I have to do the minimum to keep the habit, by golly, I'm going to do the minimum. Keeping the pace is more important right now. 3) Lose some weight! I'm at 267.7 according to Today's Weigh-In. Through a combination of "More Paleo!" and "More weights!" I will lower this number. By the end of the four weeks I'd like to be in the 250s. 4) Get my wife and I to the doctor We both need checkups and need to deal with current issues, so this is an important goal. 5) Work on Menu I need to make a large menu of Paleo and Paleo-ish meals, one from which I can draw at random for a week's menu planning to make things easier. So I'm going to scour the web for recipes and ideas that I can then compile for this. So that's my plan for this challenge. Prep Week will involve planning some meals, buying the right groceries, and getting my Workout Jams playlist in order! 7 Quote -- Current Challenge: I'm Back, Baby!
