Theophilus Goes to the Good Place

Recommended Posts

Son of a bench, this has been a forking crazy year.

Three months ago I quit my job, moved across the country, and started law school. Needless to say, healthy habits have not exactly been front and center for me. Stress eating and oversleeping have become my own little bad place.

Challenge 1: 5K

I'm running a 5k when I'm back home for Christmas. I can do the distance, but it's painfully slow. I want to get down to a 9 min/mile pace for the 5k. I will run 4x/week, alternating between easy runs and some speed work.

 

Challenge 2: Flex

I'm about as flexible as Jason is intelligent. Hunching over casebooks all day and carrying heaven knows how many pounds in my backpack has not helped. I downloaded the GMB focused flexibility pack and will do that everyday.

 

Challenge 3: Time Management

I have a lot to do over the next three weeks. I have a general schedule that should give me enough time to do what I need to get done, but I can't have any distractions. Three sub-goals in this category:

- Phone Time: No usage before 8 AM or after 10 PM; no more than 30 mins Social Media (Twitter, Insta, Facebook) per day. I've set up the "Screen Time" thing on my phone, I just need to stop pushing the "Ignore Limit" button.

- Family Time: 5-8PM each day is for the wife kids. No exceptions.

- School Time: Follow my daily schedule to get in the minimum number of hours I've blocked off for schoolwork each day.

 

 

Challenge 3: Keep Point Totals

Gotta rack up my points to get in, right? No points for scratching someone's elbow or deduction for telling a woman to smile. But here's how I get my daily points:

 

Eat Fruits and Veggies: 1 pt/serving (up to 10pts/day)

Water: 0.5 pt/glass (up to 5 pts/day)

Apple Cider Vinegar Beverage: 1 pt/drink (up to 2/day) [this has been really helping me with some GI stuff]

Sleep: 1 pts/hour (up to 8pts/day)

Run: 10 pts

Flexibility Routine: 5 pts

Time Goals: 3 pts for each sub-goal met (up to 10 pts/day [bonus point for meeting all three in a day])

Caloric Beverage: -10 pts

Sweets on a weekday: -10 pts

 

I have 50 pts available on days I run and 40 on the days I don't. From here to the end of the challenge, a perfect score puts met at 1,000 points (I swear I didn't plan that). But Pobody's Nerfect, so if I hit 800 points, I'm in the good place.

Hahahaha! (Side note: This is actually the least realistic part of the show for me. I've spent a surprising amount of time with moral philosophers and I can't say they look like they spend much time on their physical appearance...)
