Grumble Cleans up and Clears out.

They are called incentive spirometers and they are for all the purposes listed so far. They often hand them out after intubation or surgery (which often involves intubation, because the lungs get weak after having a machine do their job for them. It's to help build them back up, failure to do so puts one at risk if things like pneumonia. I've stood around in hospital rooms while respiratory therapists have explained them.

You kind of convinced everyone it's a good thing that Grumble sucks while running.

 

So, yes. You helped. :P

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

Closing out this nonsense.

 

I forgot I was going to be traveling for a week. I am the worst eater in the world when I'm

a) traveling alone, and

b) traveling on someone else's dime.

 

Let's just say that the food related goals of this challenge died a delicious, intoxicated, umami enhanced death.

 

In other news, the cleaning was good managed to get the rest of my chair space cleaned up down in the garage before I left. 

 

Got in 3 runs while I was gone. Not as far as I wanted to, but I hate treadmill running so I ran as far as my brain could handle staring at a wall.

 

Had trouble sleeping, brain stuck in study mode, so outside of the first day I had multiple meditation sessions, and I think they helped, I got enough sleep to not be exhausted, but not so much that I had to reacquaint myself with PST.

 

Over all, about a 50/50 split in my goals. Didn't quite hit the twice a day posting, exceptionally difficult considering how often I shut my phone down after 20:30.

 

In the interest of transparancy, I can't honestly give myself actual score, so I'm just going to change the highlight to green for positive or red for negative completion.

 

Cleaning
Running
Alcohol
Meditation
Added Sugar
Intermittent fasting
Twice daily posts
 
Because I am less than 50% successfully completed, I am going to be returning the very nice headphones I bought. I still *need* a new pair, since mine got stolen, but I will not award failure with reward.

Travelling and eating healthy  is hard because I find it bizarrely difficult to make prudent choices at restaurants. If I try to pick something healthy on a menu it just gives me intense, neurotic indecision/fomo/course envy/guilt. I don't feel that way when I make my own semi-healthy food, though. For some reason menus just make me neurotic and bring out my inner sméagol.

 

Anyway, glad you're still here in the challenge trenches. Did you know that February will be glorious? Yes. It was revealed to me in a vision.

also i'd look at your challenge as having 4 more goals than it probably should have. when you recalculate, that's 100% success. you created a goal to get off the phone and another to post on here twice per day... i just think that maybe you should give yourself some credit for sticking to the one that kept your sanity mostly intact.

The off the phone was last challenge, the point of the twice a day was to hold myself accountable to a schedule. I didn't quite make it. But sometimes the point of a challenge is to understand your limitations, and I learned that I am limited in my ability to deal with redundancy. SOmething I probably need to work on, especially as I move up career-wise, but in that case I guess you can call it a success in the order of understanding.

Learning something important about yourself is a huge success. Let's not underestimate the future successes this typically lead to. :)
