Chanda: Spring Bootcamp 2014 -> Finishing the Unfinished!


Chanda

Recommended Posts

After a nice long break its time to dust of the cobwebs and start moving again. The smell of Spring is in the air!

 

Over the next 6 weeks I will be doing my own private bootcamp. I spent the past week "twicking my plan" so I am not counting it - that is why I also didn't post. I start officially on Monday and I will actually run for 6 weeks until 13.Apr. I all report on the status on 06.Apr like everyone else but will only level up if I keep it going until 13.Apr so I have a full 6 weeks.

 

Main Quest: I am a loving and organized person.

 

In order to become the loving and organized person I dream of being I need to be fit, healthy and not weighed down by stuff. In one way or another, that is what ALL my goals are about.

 

1.  The 3 Main quest Goals: First things First: Healthy Me! 

To keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear. -- Buddha (c. 563 BC to 483 BC)

 

Since this is a fitness site the first 3 goals are related to fitness. After all I have to look after myself and be fit and healthy if I want to be the best person I know I can be!

 
a. attend yoga/tennis classes (except work/sick/holidays) DEX +2
b. 3 x exercise (anything counts: run/yoga/body weight) STR +1, STA +1
c. no mindless snacking in the evenings (planned desserts and post exercise protein snack allowed) CON +2
 
2. Life Quest: Finishing the unfinished:
How you start is important, very important, but in the end it is how you finish that counts. -- B.C. Forbes
 
I keep using all the stuff I think I need to be doing as an excuse for not doing the things I want to do. Over the next 6 weeks I plan to deal with it all… or at least a large chunk of it all. 
 
a. 1 hour per workday spent on dealing with tasks I have been neglecting: 100 small tasks/projects completed or deleted! WIS +2
b. at least 7 hours per week at home spend on decluttering/organizing/finishing tasks:  100 small tasks/projects completed or deleted! WIS +2
c. one full round of "deep cleaning" around the house. CHA +2

3. Side Quest: Good Sleeping Habit for a Perfect day: 
Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. – Ben Franklin
 
The Life Quest will be using up a lot of my energy both mentally and physically. Good sleep and relaxing each day will be used to recharge at the end of each day.
 
a. Up early (6-6:30am) CON +1
b. Relaxing time (from 8:30-9:30pm) CHA +1
c. Bed early (10-11pm) STA +1
 
Starting:  03.Mar
Finishing:  13.Apr
 
Warning Signs that I took on to much: 
Yes, its a lot but its over a specified time period. So I think its sustainable. Nonetheless, I am implementing 2 warning signs to tell me that I have taken on too much. If so, I will re-avaluate the list.
 
1. If I start getting grumpy and short tempered.
2. I dont find the time each day to play with the girls.
 
Lets do this!

Yay! Chanda! Welcome back! I've been wondering how you've been - hope you had a good winter! 

 

Your challenges are always an inspiration, and this one is no less: 100 tasks accomplished *swoon* oh, my. I don't even want to think that I have that many things I need to do.

 

I love the idea of Warning Signs! Very good idea to have that built in.

Ah Chanda, it is so lovely to have you back and I agree with Wandern - lots of inspiration here and I like your quotes.

 

"I keep using all the stuff I think I need to be doing as an excuse for not doing the things I want to do"

So well put. It's only, that sometimes it can be hard to tell the two apart. 

 
The addition of warning signs is of course something I can relate to very much - self knowledge is such a valuable tool.
 
How is/was your first week?

I have chosen to believe in myself.
