You're gonna be a black belt? Awesome!

 

Yes. I completed Lean and Green in the summer, and I'm looking forward to the Black. It will mean I am a Master Six Sigma when I roll it all together.

 

I like having the class base, but stealing (nay, "borrowing") from other guilds.  Looks like another awesome challenge!

Last challenge I made "borrowing" a goal in its own right -- now I'm trying to be all Rangersome and make what i "borrowed" part of the base work. I'm crafty like that. :)

 

Looks like you have a few "goals" ahead. Definitely inspiring!!

You know, I think you misspelled insane. :)

Looking forward to it. 

House pics forthcoming, as well as updates on the certification grades and progress.

Great set of goals. Good luck with everything!

Not as cool as alla that ninja stuff. :)

You'll have to let me know how that parkour workout goes. I've been thinking of adding that in to my own routine. Im already feeling like I do quite a bit of exercise but if I want to get into freerunning, then I'm going to have to start building my upper body and my precision.

Hello Heidi :)

Just wanted to drop by to take a look at you challenge and wish you good luck! I hope you manage to accomplish all your goals :)

 

Do I understand this right? You want to do Strength training 4 times a weeks, as well as 3 times Assassin's Bodyweigth stuff? Or just a mix of those two added up to 4 overall? 

Also what is your diet goal? 

 

I really like that you keep your goals flexible. If it works for you, it's awesome! 

Excuse my ignorance on the topic, but what is a 6sigma? Whatever it may be, being a blackbelt in it sure is great :)

The Weekend Report

Saturday I cooked a planned fest for freezing and storage to help streamline the dinner-after-work-before-karate hour. Food and friends and good times.

I know it probably sounds crazy to say that my Pilates day is like a rest day for me, since there is plenty of workout going on. But honestly, it is restorative at the soul level. After a post-Pilates nap, I cleaned the house a bit and overall felt grounded and centered to face the coming week.

love & peace,

Heidi

Week One Report: Dominated!

I really felt solid this week -- not a rock star or anything (well, ok maybe when I was deadlifting) but just getting it done as planned. I liked that feeling a lot, and the flexibility that I incorporated into the goals has made a huge difference in feeling a sense of control and competence. 

 

I'm overall very satisfied with this week, though the water intake and cigarettes are still not where they need to be.

 

Assassin: 3/3 A

Warrior Weight: 2 of 1 A+

Scout Cardio: 3/3 A

Monk Plank: 3/3 A

Druid Yoga: 1/1 A

Cigarettes: 3/7 C

Life: RMP at 50% A+
