2021 Goals are listed. I want to get a large amount of them done and will likely be adding some more throughout the year. I am starting now though for 2021.

 

Goals for this challenge:

  • Workout daily
  • Eat whole foods
  • No drinking
  • Start spending my time more productively - no coming home from work and doing nothing
  • Post on NF daily

 

That's it. Really simple and easy and I am motivated to improve my life and enjoy my hobbies. I'll post lots of pics and youtube videos along the way.

I felt like I could run forever, like I could smell the wind and feel the grass under my feet, and just run forever.

So I started officially today, I know I should just do it on day one but got a little lazy. Day is already going well, I will update the entire day as a post the following morning each day.

 

This Sunday will be tough to get things done since I am fishing 2 hours south of here from dusk until dawn. I have a plan of action though.

Impressive list. May I ask what language you're pursuing on duolingo? 

 

Also, hell yeah for the vaccine. I'm in the "general populace" group, so it'll be some time before I get one, but I'm actually quite please on who's being prioritized for it.

So the past couple days I have been insanely busy and also had a nasty cold(not covid). 

 

I went 2 hours south on Saturday to get a hotel room to fish on Sunday for a bday present that got delayed from November due to rough seas. I managed to get one of my fishing goals completed and will post tonight when I have access to imgur.

 

Yesterday(Monday) I worked but was just not feeling well and went home to couch it for a few hours then get 10 hours of sleep. This morning I feel much better but know as the work day goes on I may start to lag a little bit.

 

I think tomorrow will be a back to normal and pursing my goals for the challenge.

So this week went crappy by all means.

 

Monday: Came home, went to bed

Tuesday: Started feeling better, went to bed pretty early but that was Tuna meal

Wednesday: Work got crazy, came home and watched news

Thursday: Didn't sleep well, came home went to bed.

 

Friday(today): no work(I do 40 hours in 4 days), feeling good and about to get stuff done around the house.

 

On the bright side this week I ate super healthy and didn't drink. I just failed to check in here and workout. Today will be a nice rebound and hopefully I can carry the weekend into next week.

Good lords, how was the blackfin?  I love the rare cook and the sesame seed touch!

 

A local eatery used to do rare ahi tuna in a crunchy rice bowl with spicy yogurt sauce, it was absolutely to die for.
