It's time for me to get my head back in the game. It's time to go a bit old school. I will see this through. Lifting, cardio, and meditation will all be a part of this challenge. Also, I have to not eat like an asshole. When I finish this challenge, I will have a good baseline to move into more specific challenges. 

 

 

 

Workout 4 days per week. No matter what.  I somehow find a way to not do something. It's easy not to do the thing. No more. Weights and cardio in the form of jumping rope will be my guide on this. 

0/4 - Weekly

0/16 - 4WC
 

 

Meditate 3 days per week.  This is usually not a problem, but for some reason, I fell out of habit.  Time to go back to my roots.

0/3 - Weekly
0/12 - 4WC
 

Portion Control.  Grading is subjective and difficult, but I will do my best on this. I am getting better, but with my diabetes, I need to be better still. 
Pass/Fail 0/21 - Weekly
Pass/Fail 0/84 - 4WC

 

 

Bonus Level: Glass work.  I will finish at least one piece each week and post pictures! I have had many successful craft shows in the past couple of years and I am only improving on my technique. And Jitters Junior and Jitter Bug help. Makes it much more fun.

0/4- 4WC

 

 

I may stumble along the way, but it will not stop me.  With your help, I will beat this.

Have you ever followed any of @jstanlick's challenges? He's been fairly successful in using diet to regulate blood sugar. Now, with the disclaimer that this is only relevant for Type II, but it's been kind of cool to follow!

 

How are you currently eating? #foodnerd

I have not followed. One of the problems of not being here for the last year or so is that I am woefully unaware of others.  

 

My first hurdle will be to not eat everything because I can. It's my biggest issue facing my meals. Oh, there are still food left on your plates kids, slide them this way... Mindless eating of a whole pizza because it's there or I'm bored... things like that.

Sooooo....I need to get on board with this as well.  I seem to have developed an addiction to McDonald's that I can't shake.  And considering that I am going to be half naked on stage in 6 weeks means I gotta stop shoveling the Chicken McNuggets into my damn face...

So many things to say on this... But I don't have the time right now. Think of something clever and imagine me saying it. 
And yes, let's cut the crap!

Thanks. I'm working on obtaining some lanterns to change out the glass with some stained glass panels. We'll see how it turns out. And I have to make dragons for both kids, a fairy for Jitter Bug, there's a moonscape I want to try and a whole host of other ideas I want to go for. Should be fun.

For some reason, this reminds me of "Beauty and the Beast" and I really love it a lot!

That is exactly where it was inspired from. And it sold last week. I will have to make another

The kids reminded me that I haven't started on their dragons yet, so I think that will be the first one up.

Woke up at 4:45 for my lifting rounds. I hit up some overhead presses at 3x60x10. Then went on to squats at 3x90x10. A little lighter because I am going to be spending my work day golfing. It's tough to be me...

Traced the dragon pattern for ease of sight on the glass. Should be fun. As a bonus, I found someone selling lanterns that I can replace the plain glass with small stained glass panels. I'm excited for finding a great deal and trying this out. Might be next week.

I have been doing great on my portions. Last night was an awards dinner that my company was being honored at, and I had only half of what was on my plate. To be fair, it helped that I don't really like salmon. Still felt good.

I will have pictures tonight or tomorrow morning. I finished soldering and cleaning a lighthouse pattern that was commissioned. I have to frame it tonight after a wake, a Cub Scout Pack Meeting, and a Committee Meeting... sleep is for the weak...


or so I keep telling myself

This weekend, I went on a long bike ride followed by a trip to the local bike park with the kids. It is an awesome place. They have it marked like a ski resort, so the kids know where their ability levels are. I'm enjoying my town more and more.

I made the horrible decision to buy Nutella this weekend.  On the plus side, I don't think I'll be eating any more anytime soon!  :)

Last week wasn't my greatest. I have no delusions about that. There are reasons and excuses, but I sucked at keeping myself healthy last week. Ended up feeling sick Thursday and left work an hour early. Took the whole day on Friday which hasn't happened in a long time. Not much of an appetite on Friday, but Sunday was all the food in my mouth day. 

 

Workout 4 days per week.

4 minutes of jump rope on Wednesday and nothing for the rest of the week. Unless you count painting

I had some progress, but nothing finished last week. This week, I will get more than one done. I am excited for a craft show the first Saturday in November, so I will be kicking it up a notch.
