Novena Digs her way out!


Recommended Posts

OK, so this is the short short version that I will make fancy and nice later, but I really just wanted to get my goals down before I lost it.


When last we saw our entrepid adventurer, she was trying to escape her tomb, the rut in which all her best motivations was hopelessly stuck. Unfortunately she got landslided by the job hunting challenge, which was too big a boss to beat.


Now however, the next step is to find a new way out. The tomb must be excavated, to recover the tools necessary to dig my way out of this hole I got myself into.



Main Quest: OK, so the big main quest is to make a Life Worth Living. But that's a life quest.


My current portion of that task is to recover from my injury, and get back to being a badass hooper.

But first, I need to get out of this hole.


"Take a bad boy, make him dig five feet,
The dirt in these shovels will give us a beat.
Okay you gotta find suin' neva found before,
If not, we'll just have to dig some more.
" "Dig it", Holes



Goal 1: Your Shovel is your Guide - Dumbell Division 4 day program (STR 4)

I keep putting strength training in here, and keep failing cause I was doing straight bodyweight and it was boring me cause I miss my dumbells. (been doing light dumbells since high school, and didn't realize how much I wanted them back.

Goal 2: Peaches and Onions - 90% Paleo every workday. (STA3))

There is a LOT of extra food in the office. I work in an office that deals with Japanese visitors, and they *always* bring food for the office. Last couple of weeks we had six kinds of cookies. And once you've had one, you want to go - eh, that day's tanked. Might as well have ice cream. None of that.

I must bring the food I want to eat, and barring that anything I purchase has to be paleo. And I say 90% because there is greek yogurt in our vending machines, and sometimes its just the best option.


Goal 3: Report Anything you Find - Log goal status. (WIS3)

Daily in my journal, weekly on this challenge thread along with body composition stats.


Life Goal: Excavate the apartment - You got to go dig them holes. (CHA5)


My apartment is a mess. Actually - most of it is in bins, but I have papers and bills from college (which was 15 years ago) and books I haven;t read in years and mail from three years ago, and craft stuff I no longer need, and its all a metaphor for my life as much as a physical reality.


Grades later.

Challenge: The Raptors are Coming

Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything.

Maybe it's about un-becoming everything that isn't really you so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.
