Chapter 2


Craftyviking

Recommended Posts

After a moderately successful first adventure, our hero decides to go on another one. 

 

About me:

I am Tonje/Craftyviking.I live in Norway, have a rather sedetary lifestyle and wish to change that. I collect hobbies. I am also terrible at writing about me's 

Goals:

We are going for 4 goals this challenge. One of which will be a continuation of one for the last challenge since I feel like that habit doesn't stick yet. 

  • Physical Health: C25K 3 times a week
  • Mental Health: Meditation every day
  • Diet: No sugar (aka no sweets, no sweet baked goods, no soda. If a cooked dish contains some sugar that is ok)
  • Adventuring: Hike a new trail every week

 

Progress:

I made a spreadsheet you can see here for tracking my progress

The first two days have gone great. On Sunday I had a hike to a new hilltop I have attempted to reach in the past but been unable to. It was a great view from there and the dogs did really well walking down hills so steep they had made staircases in them. And yesterday I did day one of C25K and well it was hard but doable. I took Frodo, our 9 month old Lagotto, with me to see how he is to jog with. He did really well. Pulling a bit but less random stopping than Samwise, our old man poodle.I listened to Zombies Run and damn is it weird right now. Not so much the main story but the radio mode talking about dealing with living in a post apocalyptic woirld. 

I am craving sugar a bit but since I am allowing myself fruit and veg I feel I have something when I want something sweet. I am planning on being "bad" about that on Wednesday. It is my wife and I's 4th anniversary and I have ordered a cake for us. That way I can also support a local bakery a little.

Perfect reason for a treat!

 

I thought about starting ZombiesRun but was wondering if the post apocalyptic thing would be ... too much right now.

 

Yeah listening to it is a little surreal. The radio mode more so than the story itself for me right now because I am in very plot heavy things, but the radio mode is more about everyday life  and that is... well.. different than it was 6 months ago. They do have some home workouts as well.

This have gone pretty great for the last couple of days. Yesterday I did have cake but it was planned as mentioned above. And I am not feeling guilty one bit. Which is a pretty great feeling. The last couple of days I have been struggling to get up in time but today I managed. Working from home is a bit of a struggle sometimes, but at the same time I am feeling more productive.

Back to work today (well from home). I think it will go easier when I have that stability. I got a bit of a bummer this weekend. I have gained enough inches around my waist that I don't have enough fabric for a dress I want to sew. I had been sewing every day and enjoying that and that just put a stop to that.

Yesterday was my birthday and it was a really good one. Apart from the cake I had planned I managed to stay on top of the no sugar plan which I am really happy with. I have a tendency to indulge when I have "cheat days". I also went on a c25k run.

 

I turned 33 yesterday and I decided that I want to be my goal weight by the time I turn 35. Which means I have 40kg to lose in two years. Not impossible but also not easy. But that might also be good in a way. it will mean that I have to start now if I want to do it in time.

So good to hear that in spite of everything it was a good birthday. 

 

 

Also, you are absolutely right about your new goals.  Not impossible but it will need a definite plan and continual effort.  I'll cheer you along the way as best I can! 

Thank you

And thhhhhat is one of the silliest and best gifs I have seen in a while!

 

And yeah. it is a little silly that one of the reasons for why is so that I use less fabric or yarn when I make myself things.. But on the other hand, there are more serious ones like wanting to be in better shape to get back into RC SAR stuff.
