I'm rewatching through Boy Meets World right now (thanks Hulu) and I decided to make my theme this challenge based on my very first original TV spirit animal - Topanga Lawrence!  There are so many reasons I love her but I think the above two quotes pretty much say it all. If I have a moment of non-motivation during this challenge I'll just ask myself What Would Topanga Do? Be a badass independent woman and do what needs to be done, that's what.

 

Prologue

anigif_enhanced-30966-1438284156-3.gif

 

My first love is powerlifting, and have recently-ish started getting back into trying to lift heavy instead of just for maintenance. I'm still living the Stronglifts life right now but will probably be looking to graduate to an intermediate program before the end of the year. I also have semi-seriously been getting into ballroom dancing since December 2017 and it's kind of taken over my life.  I love it.  I'll be doing my first competition on my own (ie not with the formation team I'm on which I've done one competition with earlier this year) the end of the first week of this challenge doing a waltz to Hedwigs Theme. 

 

I recently did a huge decluttering of my apartment and am trying to settle on a good method of keeping-it-that-way.  Last challenge I tried small daily tasks, I don't think it worked for me, so this challenge I'll be focusing on a new approach to this. I am really also into mobility (ROMWOD and Unbreakable Feet are my two go-tos, I've been dabbling in GMB's Focused Flexibility program) and fit that in where I can. 

 

I am a sufferer of Rangerbrain and earlier this year had to declutter my goals in order to focus on a smaller amount of things more seriously. I'm thinking of maybeeee trying to squeeze one of those things back in maybe before the end of the year?  Things I wish I could do but just don't have time for and had to cut out but have potential to bring back: yoga, OCRs, rucking, boxing, rowing. Honestly I've got my eyeball on boxing but we shall see. It may make an appearance this challenge. It may not.

 

I also volunteer for HRC and it takes up a lot of my non-work time.  I've got meetings every week if not twice a week with them and then have to actually do the thing aside from that. Between that and dance my calendar is pretty much always full.  I like it that way though.

 

Goals

giphy.gif

 

1) Lifty Lift Lift

Strength Train 3x/week

Self explanatory methinks.

 

2) Dancey Dance Dance

Practice outside of dance class/lessons 1x/week

I'm going to go to dance class and take lessons regardless of this challenge.  I literally rearrange my social calendar so as to not miss classes sometimes so I'm in no way worried about that.  I think the next step in upping my game is practicing things I'm struggling with at home. I'm not going to go too hard on this, I just want to get a feel for what it would entail.  So 15 or more minutes once a week is all I'm shooting for for right now.  That's enough time to practice one figure or something a few times. Or run a routine a few times.

 

3) Cleanity Clean Clean

Comprehensive maintenance cleaning 1 day a week.

No more daily tasks, do all of them in a few hour block once a week, for now scheduled for Friday but I think it might switch between Fridays and Sundays depending on the week.

I think I want to get a pair of practice dance shoes. I don't really neeeeeeed them, I have a pair of latin (strappy sandal-y) and a pair of smooth (closed toe and bendy) shoes but for days when I'm doing a few classes in a row and my feet hurt, or for salsa and hustle where I don't really want to be wearing either my latin or smooth shoes and feel weird when I do... I would really like to have a plain practice pair. So if I 100% this challenge I will get them - which sounds like a lot but I'm really only asking myself to do 2 things a week (ie goals 2 & 3, lifting is in my habit now so it's not something extra I'm doing but I'd like to keep track of it here), one of which is a 15 minute thing... so 100% is reasonable. I'll probably get black but like, there are also some crazy ones that I really like.  I almost certainly won't get them, but look how cool they are:

There are also ones with lips all over them hahah. Not sure if I'd absolutely love wearing them or regret it instantly.

 

Anyway, that's my challenge.  Here we go!

Hahah I kind of am really tempted.  But I also would like to be able to use them for performances sometimes if the outfit is more inclined to black shoes (since my smooth shoes are tan) otherwise I honestly would be all over the paint spackled looking ones.

The one upside to Disney's mediocre show Girl Meets World is that it was enough of a throwback to its source material that my wife and I watched every episode with our daughters.

Actually part of the reason I'm binge watching BMW right now is because I kind of wanted to watch GMW, I didn't watch it when it was running but I would love to see everyone all grown up.  I'm sad to hear it's not super great but I have a feeling the cameos will make it all worth it.  Plus it's only like 3 seasons right?

I do love them.  The two main issues are I have a lot of flashy leggings and it would be SUPER clashy, and I also would then lose the ability to wear them for performances if my costume lends itself to black shoes instead of tan.  Buttttttt I really do want them anyway.

WHERR DID YOU FIND THE PAINT SPLATTER SHOES???? Omg my impulse trigger finger is itching!

 

ETA: the Ballroom nerd in me just looked at the soles - internationals, right?

 

You got it :) They're apparently limited edition designed by/with Katya Jones. But I guess they do crazy limited edition stuff semi-regularly.  There's a great ballroom shoe store in the city I've been to a few times now and they really have everything - I actually found these just browsing their website.

if you don't live stream this for us I'm throwing myself into traffic with disappointment

 

this is a GREAT theme, seriously. I love it.

 

I cannot promise a live stream, but there will be video and at the very least pictures hahah

 

It is SO GOOD.  Even after practicing to it so many times I still don't hate it, which used to happen to me in ballet.

Actually part of the reason I'm binge watching BMW right now is because I kind of wanted to watch GMW, I didn't watch it when it was running but I would love to see everyone all grown up.  I'm sad to hear it's not super great but I have a feeling the cameos will make it all worth it.  Plus it's only like 3 seasons right?

 

It wan't bad, the stories were just a little watered down because it was on Disney channel instead of a main network, like BMW was.  However, the main character is exactly how you would expect a child from Corey and Topanga to turn out.   The cameos and allusions to the previous show are awesome.

Wow I don't know what is going on with me this week, but let me just say I'm glad it's zero week and it doesn't count towards my challenge goals because I am feeling llaaaazzzyyyy.  Honestly though I don't think it counts as laziness if it's based in real physical feelings and not in just not wanting to do stuff.  I have just been inexplicably exhausted all week.  Maybe I'm fighting something off? I literally can not keep my eyes open and just keep wanting to sleep forever.  I haven't lifted yet, I'll just be doing 2x this week.  I went to dance Tuesday night and had a blast in the latin jazz and samba classes.  I really like samba I am pumped to learn more of it.  The music is just so fun.  Aside from that I've legit done .n.o.t.h.i.n.g. Absolutely nothing.  No ROMWOD no meditation no flexibility drills.  I've just kinda been... lazing about.  Well actually that's a lie last night I went to a book signing down the street from me with Naomi Novik who is one of my favourite authors, but aside from that it's been work, food, sleep.  And even as I write this I am literally in bed, dying to just put my head down and go to sleep.  I thought maybe it could be carb flu since I have been eating a lot cleaner but I definitely had pizza the other day so idfk. Or maybe I haven't been eating enough? I haven't been counting calories or macros and I have definitely seen body comp changes in myself this past month so maybe I just need more food, though I haven't been hungry.  Maybe I haven't been drinking enough water? I really don't know but it's frustrating.  Blargh. After this post I am going to nap and then get up and at least try to do something. Maybe I'll do my 15 minutes of dance practice.

 

Even though this sounds like I am down in the dumps I am in pretty good spirits, I'm honestly feeling pretty good and am excited for the upcoming weekend (more dance, apple picking, and board games) but I am just so so so tired.  Hmf. Maybe I need some B vitamins.

Love your challenge.  I was never really a BMW watcher.. I watched The Wonder Years... so I guess my age is showing.  I'm really interested in your dance.  I've been thinking about starting some lessons in my non existent free time.
