I can’t be the only one who is nerding out on the Mandalorian right now.

 

February challenge is mandalorian themed! 

 Three easy to the point goals this challenge.

Goal #1 The Way of Strength 

 

Following a workout schedule I saw on darbee "Fighter". My take on it is twice a week complexes, one day of clean and press, and a day or two of Getups or jump rope. 

 

Bonus: I am halfway through a darbee push up challenge and I want to finish it. Not very challenging but it is fun.

Goal #2 The Way of Knowledge 

 

I love to read and go through phases where I consume several books in a very short time and then don't read anything for a month. Then other times when I have reading FOMO and start one book and start reading something else when I am halfway through it, repeat. 

 

I would like to be a little more consistent. Goal is minimum 5 pages per day.

Goal #3 The Way of Rest

 

Back on my bad habits of staying up way too late wasting time on my phone and just not going to bed at a reasonable hour. This ties in nicely with my other goal.

 

Phone off by 9:30pm. Read until bedtime. 

 

I will set a alarm on my phone to remind myself to turn it off.

A nice break in workout.

 

I actually got some sleep last night. Good thing too since today is my first day back in the office in the last 6 weeks. 

 

Shut off my phone as planned, read The Queens Gambit for about 40 minutes and then went to sleep. Woke up a half hour before my alarm since my body doesn't know what is going on.

I loved the mandalorian! Also I like your goals: workouts and reading. Strength and Wisdom. And sleep. Could there be a more perfect combination?

Grrrrrrr

 

Knocked out my Pushup challenge day and turned off phone as planned. Read longer than I should have for an hour and a half then tried to get some sleep. (some plot points of the show VS the book in the Queens Gambit have showed up) 

 

Insomnia hit and I just laid there. I finally didn't get to sleep until around 1am. Slept right through my alarm this morning missing my morning workout and ended up being a little late for work. For extra fun I have been dragging all day. Sux

Again! 

 

Phone off about 15 minutes later than target. Read longer than planned but book got good and ended up finishing The Queens Gambit. Insomnia hit again and again fell asleep around 1am. I at least didn't sleep through my alarm but early morning workout wasn't happening.

Ugh, I hate when this happens.  Do you know if something was different in the past couple of days, that could have triggered the insomnia?

A good workout. Felt strong. I haven't worked out in days. It seemed like it took me forever to recover from a few days of not sleeping. Hope to get back on track this week. 

 

I'm starting the book Frankenstein tonight.

Being back in the office. My suspicion is the free coffee. Several challenges ago I cut back my coffee consumption to no later than 10am. Out of habit I have kept up with that without conscious thought, which was the plan, but I did not take into account that a change in venue would bypass my established habit. 

 

In hindsight I was heading to the coffee pot after lunch since I didn't have anything else on hand to drink. The next day doubly so since I was tired. 

 

This week I will plan for that and take my water bottle.

That makes perfect sense.

 

When I was at the office I kept herbal tea at my desk for when I wanted something other than water in the afternoon. That could be an option too, perhaps?

Oh, coffee even at 11am or 12pm influences your sleep? That could be difficult to figure out for someone who has never not had coffee but I'm glad you figure it out.

I am very much like that with my reading as well. It's all or nothing, would love to be more consistent as the default.
