Blethan

Blethan V2.7.1 (Post-holiday rebound!)

Recommended Posts

So I'm back (again, maybe for the millionth time!)

I'm sticking with my 'versioning' way of approaching things, nerdy I know, but is there's no better place for that right? 
My last goals where that this version (V27.1, I'm now just turned 27, and I'm working in quarters, working roughly with the 5-week challenge outline) would:

Weighs 130lbs
Completed Couch to 5K course
Plans everyday

Action Storyboard/Animatic

 

I hit my goal weight (but swung back up over holiday)
Have only 4 weeks left of C25K
Plan almost everyday in advance (the evening before or in the morning, excluding holidays and 'days off')
and I have completed an action storyboard animatic!

So by end of November V27.2 should:

Weigh 130lbs again
Booked in a 5k RACE to do (not just run 5K)
Completed research project based on Storyboard artists
Read new story-boarding book
Complete Inktober (31 ink-based drawings throughout October!)
 

Tactics to achieve this are:

Goal Tactics Due 5WC   Complete %
Weigh 130lbs again Track food daily ev day 1-3  
  Run x 2/week ev week 1-3   0
  8,000 steps/day ev day 1-3   3%
Booked in a 5k RACE to do (not just run 5K) Research races nearby 31st October 2   0%
  Book race 30th Nov 3   0%
Completed research project based on Storyboard artists Research 3 artists a week 30th Sept 1   30%
Read new story-boarding book Read X amount per week 30th Nov 2-3   0%
Complete Inktober (31 ink-based drawings throughout October!) Prep material 30th Sept 1   0%
  Initial Designs 30th Sept 1   30%
  Drawing each day 1-31st Oct     0%

Update:

So I'm a little late to the party and 'set-up 4WC' has been on my to-do list for far too long...

All in all, I was doing well, but things have slipped a bit lately due to holidays and my birthday, so just trying to get back on track. I've got big plans for this year, as I always do, and a lot of it is focusing on really following my careers goals. I'm making sure to priorotise my health above everything else ('cause you can do crap if your stuck getting sick/feeling rubbish all the time), but I will also be having lots of project based and research goals. 

 

Update for today: 

 

Track food daily Start this tomorrow
Run x 2/week 0 this week so far
8,000 steps/day 8,000 yesterday, but dead fitbit so no idea about today. Likely 8,000 though as I was in London
   
Research 3 artists a week I've sort of started this already, have so far 4 done
   
Prep material Not yet
Initial Designs 10 of 30 inital designs done

I like your goals and yeee you are back!
Do you want to run a race or a park run (https://www.parkrun.com/) would meet your criteria?
I like those, because it's a weekly run and it gives you the time as a real run.
Do you like in the UK, right?

Ahh, yeh I'm all signed-up to park run but haven't yet had the chance to do one! Maybe actually this weekend would be a good opportunity... 

I would like to run a race though too! You know, the kind you pay for and get a shiny medal for. Two things that would definitely get me to turn up (other than the fact that I actually really enjoy running...)

Update 19/09:

 

Track food daily Snacked a bit much today on breakfast bars... 
Run x 2/week 0 this week so far
8,000 steps/day 12,500 today! Had to go to a studio for a photo shoot so decided to walk rather than take an extra tube (it wasn't much longer a walk so it made sense)
   
Research 3 artists a week Didn't do this today, slept in...

That makes sense, yes! I have that on my one-day list too.
I'm kind of dating a guy now who organises races, so I have less than a year to get a bit fitter. If the story goes on
