Nina-Rose is Going Back to Basics


Recommended Posts

This is my respawn from 2017, and I'm exploring what does and doesn't work for me in 2022.

I began this challenge last week as a trial - partly because I need consistency, but also because I'm going to be away for the final week of this challenge. So my week 0 is at the end of the last thread. I've tweaked a couple of the goals, but managed 20/30 XP last week, 

 

For this 4 weeks, I'm trying to really scale back to things which make a difference.

 

Foundational Waters

-Avoid unhealthy food choices (sweets/chocolate) for a whole day (_/1).

-Eat 5 fruit/veggies at least 2 days. (_/2)

-Intermittent Fast 15 hours. (_/7)

 

Strength of Earth

-Daily Movement / Stretching / Yoga (_/7)

-Additional Walk / Workout (_/1)

 

Scholarly Air

-Read Nonfiction (_/2)

-Read Fiction (_/2)

-Complete a CNM chapter journal prompt (_/2)

-Complete the GUGY journal prompt (_/1)

 

Creative Fire

-Write fiction (350 words / 2)

-Write nonfiction article (/1)

-Listen to ‘We Can Do Hard Things’ podcast weekly (/2)

 

Total XP: /30 per week

Happy respawn! :D 

 

Doing a trial run is a smart idea. What are GUGY and CNM? What kind of things do you write?

I didn't even think to explain my own jargon :P It's not fitness related.

 

CNM is the book Codependant No More by Melody Beattie which I'm working through as I await therapy from my failed marriage. 

GUGY is a Life Coaching yearlong course called Grown-Up Gap Year by Tiffany Han. All about listening to my instincts and living the life I want, not defined by my roles 😃

 

I've begun multiple novels, completing drafts of 9/16. I have a website with my stats here: https://krgreen.co.uk/novels/

I'm currently working on 'Project TFG' which has gone out to beta-readers and I'm editing based on the feedback. I've had a few short stories paid for and published too, but no luck in my early attempts to get an agent so returned to make the best book I can=)  I write on medium.com too, but that's nonfiction.

I like that you have "listen to..." in your Creative Fire category. Creativity is o much more than the act of creating something. :)

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

I am in awe of how much you write and instantly felt like: you want this too! ;) 

am motivated and inspired by you!

 

* embarrassing rant over*

Thank you for explaining :D Makes more sense now... :P 
I also joined the clicky group and wandered around on your site. 

 

Love what you're doing - I too was a tree once 🌴 although I failed to find deeper connection though... 🤷‍♂️

Also very cool that you work with hawks! 

Btw; the hawk pic on the home page needs a little work. The about me link is broken.

Thanks for clarifying. that doesnt show up for me - it must autocorrect with my cache or something. 

Okay I've reset the link in theory and on my private window it now works - hopefully this fixes it? Appreciate you flagging it up :)

 

Also thanks for calling me a badass hawk woman :P
