Honeybee Posted June 22, 2020 Report Share Posted June 22, 2020 Has it really been more five years since I did a NF challenge? Where did life go? In the past couple years, I've undergone a lot of change in my life and I've been neglecting my health through all of it. I got into the best shape of my life while doing challenges on NF in the past and I hope returning can help me get some of that momentum back. I had gotten into a very good routine before COVID-19 hit and then everything went to hell! I've been tracking my food and working out fairly regularly for a month now, so I feel like it's time to get creative and really ramp it up. Overarching Goal: Be the me I can be proud of My body and my mind need care and love. I want to treat my body well, accept my emotions, and strive to be better without beating myself up over past failures. Fitness Goal: Stretch at least 6 days per week [#/5] When I was doing NF challenges years ago, I did a lot of yoga and got pretty flexible. Now, I can't even touch my toes! There's no reason why I can't take 10 minutes to hold some deep stretches each day - and I know it would do me a lot of good. Health Goal: Reduce alcohol consumption, with at least 1 dry day per week [#/5] I know I use alcohol to cover up my emotions and deal with stress, but I've done a decent job cutting back to 1-2 drinks per evening during the week. I'm hoping that by mixing in some alcohol-free nights, I'll realize I don't need it at all. Baby steps! I've also been logging food + alcohol for over a month now, so I'll be comparing my weekly average over the last five weeks to my weekly average during the challenge. Life Goal: Journal or meditate at least 6 days per week [#/5] I need to do a better job being okay with my feelings rather than trying to bury them and distract myself. I think journaling and meditation could both really help me be more accepting of my mental state. And that's that! It feels good to be back.
