[Rebel Pilot Gar] Is gonna work really hard not to ghost this time, okay?!


Recommended Posts

Hey all! I have been having trouble with consistency and posting / checking in lately. But, no longer! Seriously, just going to keep my goals for this upcoming challenge really basic.

 

Also after getting frustrated with my lack of motivation to remain consistent with workouts and stuff, I did end up signing up for NF Coaching. So most of my actual progress will be logged separately there. But I also want to stay engaged with this community too. So gonna try out the following:

 

Goals:

1) Forum update at least 3x weekly

2) Hydrate (track water consumption daily)

3) Daily check-in with Coach

 

Bonus: Say hi to friends (aka check in and support other threads)

 

Hope you all are doing alright! Can't believe we're already in September. But I love autumn and am very much looking forward to it not being stupid hot outside so not going to complain too much.

Hi friends! It’s still week zero so I’m still getting back in the habit of tracking stuff. Will track and post for real once the full challenge begins again. Mostly because it’s also werewolf week so even if I’m doing good things, I’m a bit grumpy about it lol. 
 

Hope you all are doing well. Will do my best to poke into other threads and be social through the weekend.

Werewolf week.  Gosh, I think I might have to convert to this phrase.  It just makes more sense than shark week (which I know was named that because a shark brain looks like the female reproductive system) but ... werewolves become someone that is not wholly themselves when they go wolf!     Hope things mellow out and the fur vanishes soon for ya. :D

I absolutely did not know this, that is amazing and sharks are awesome too lol.

 

My cycle matches up with full moons pretty regularly lol (there’s one tomorrow) so Werewolf seemed to fit way too well. Also werewolves are awesome.

Challenge has started! Happy Monday all. I definitely had one of those weekends where I didn't want to do anything. It was rainy and quiet, so just kind of played games.

 

Work this week is already chaos so honestly I'm glad I had a chill weekend.

✅ Checked in with forums (this post!)

✅ Checked in with coach (and did the things)

✅ Water tracking in progress (sitting at about 1.5 liters, looking to get another 0.5-1.0 Liter before the end of the night)

Thank you! I'm finding it quite effective so far to put my money where my motivation should be lol.

 

It's definitely tough to describe how effective even simple goals can be. I feel like the simpler goals help me get farther than any complicated plans to improve, by a long shot.

Yay weekend!

 

So been a bit of a crazy week at work. Not "bad" crazy but just busy. Hope everyone's doing well.

 

I consistently checked in with my coach and did most of the workouts / meal planning stuff. Also tracked water every day through my garmin app.

 

((In other news I've converted my partner to garmin since he was looking to get his first smart watch for general health tracking. This has resulted in resuming evening walks that we've been slacking on through the summer (yay!) and we even went out and did a short hike today with the dog (double yay!)))

I love/hate how new tech can be so motivating!

I hate that when the tech isn't working, one suddenly feels like doing the thing isn't even worth it because it won't be tracked.

Or does that only happen to me?  >.>

Yeah, definitely feel a little too reliant on my watch sometimes. Like planning my running schedule around watch battery level…

 

We like to joke that the exercise doesn’t count if I forgot to press the “track” button. Or worse, leave the watch charging at home….

 

if the dog could talk he’d probably say humans are ridiculous and to just enjoy the walk lol

Hi all - probably a bit too long of a break before posting.

 

But! I have been checking in with my coach every day. I'm killing it on my nutrition goal, still working on that workout consistency. But it's not like I haven't been moving outside of "structured workouts" -- We've doing family hikes the past two Saturdays and generally adding more time for playtime/movement during the week.

 

I've also been doing well with consistently tracking water. So honestly the only goal I'm slipping on is checking in here.

 

Hope you all are okay and anyone who lives or has family members who live down in Florida, Puerto Rico, etc are safe. ❤️
