Obligatory RES challenge disclaimer:

Ivy.jpg

 

So, the NF challenges are turning 10 years old, my time here just passed the 6 year mark...My first two years and 14 challenges were spent with the Adventurers where I was made an ambassador, then the guilds were reconfigured and the Rangers were a better fit for my goals and the leaders graciously accepted me as one of their own :D and I've been here ever since.

During this time I've learned a lot, about myself and what works for me, and as I've stated previously the more important item of what doesn't work for me...There are many goals that I had previously that I did not achieve, and that's okay, and looking back now I couldn't even tell you why they were important enough for me to make them a goal I wanted to reach. That's where my 'disclaimer' (see above) comes in...I will never need saving, I will adjust, adapt, and ranger on!

I used to spend a lot more time on here...it seems like goals were easier to reach then when I held myself more accountable (aka not wanting to post that I hadn't reached my goals) somewhere along the way I started doing weekly instead of almost daily updates...I think it was around the time I started working for an MiLB team, I still work there but life in general has calmed down a bit. I won't make this an actual 'goal' but may in the future if I find myself falling into recent patterns.

I love using acronyms when and where I can, my basic challenge theme is not changing because it's working 

 

The Plan....

Food: Make 24 hour plan, eat on plan when hungry, stop when full.

Exercise: Continue Bodyweight365, do intervals on Sunday and 'stretching' days (Tuesday and Thursday currently)

extra: This may be more detailed as time goes on but for now it will be accomplishing anything I didn't have planned (aka not sitting on the couch from the time I get home till bedtime scrolling social media)

Down Time: Three times a week (at least) take time for me, this can be journaling, crocheting, or time to read. This also includes excursions with friends since I tend to be a hermit at times. Going to add getting at least 7 hours of sleep every night to this as well.

 

2/15 - Mud Girl Run

5/16 - Blacklight Run

 

Financial considerations are limiting my participation in 5k's, I'm not as upset about that as I normally would be since so many other plans are in the works!

I've decided that while my clothes getting looser and the number on the scale going down are good, they are not reason enough for me to do this, it's too easy for me to make an excuse not to do it. I get to do it because it makes me feel better when I do, I'm not giving out 1/2 way through what I'm doing, so I can drink coffee because I want to, not because I need it to get through the day. I have a whole bucket list of things that I want to do and most involve me being in shape to do them. That is my new goal, my new reason (that, and the beautiful granddaughter I have) to get in the kind of shape I need to be to do whatever I set my mind to.

anyways How fun!

 

I'll try to better follow along this time!

 

how did you get involved in an OCR? I had thought that once you were here for awhile and NOT done an Ocr that you were immune from Conscription.

 

but somehow they changed your mind!?

Ha!

 

anyways. good luck and I'm sure you'll hit it out of the park.

I always used the excuse that my neck injury exempted me from doing one, then some "friends?" of mine found one called Mud Girl Run and informed me that I was doing it...I could go around anything I wasn't able to do (one of them has had surgery for the same issue I have...made saying no a lot harder :lol: )

Just quoting this for posterity. Because getting wet and dirty should be everyone's idea of a good time. 

 

I too had missed that you were doing an OCR, that is so exciting! We'll be down in the Tampa area in November this year for one - not saying you have to do it, but if you'd want to come hang out!
