So with my last challenge I did not do as well as I would have liked, health and personal setbacks stepped in and made me face reality and I discovered I am only human...dammit!!

One issue I have is I go to school online, I am a horrible procrastinator and need to make this a priority...I will have my master's degree in December if I can get through this, I am tired of putting it off until the weekend every week because I can always find something else to do instead. My life goal this challenge is to do some homework every night after work and working out, even if I do not get everything done before the weekend I will at least not be rushed to get it all done.

c25k, I am restarting this from week one and am going to do it three days a week!

BBWW, restarting this as well, at least 2 days a week...or an alternate form of exercise 2 days a week...

Sticking with Paleo because it works for me and I have never felt better!!

 

My goal before this challenge starts is to find somewhere that my girlfriend and I can meet up at after work to do the c25k...because after we get home it's all over...We found a spot 'off the main drag' that we can come home, change clothes, and head out to without fear of being run over...

 

Mini Challenge questions follow...

  1. Is your overall quest achievable (over a short or long period of time)?  Is it reasonable? I believe it is, my overall goal is to fit into the wedding dress of my dreams...I know that will not happen in 6 weeks, but I have over a year to get there!
    Do your 3 main goals all build towards it in little ways, or are you taking on too much? Two of the three are, the other one (life goal) is to help me with time management, which I struggle with. 
    Are your main goals realistic? Can you scale them to smaller steps to fit your life better, even if it will make it take a little longer to achieve them? I think they are realistic, if I commit to doing them!
    Are your goals able to be measured and tracked?  What will you use to track them? 
    How are you grading your goals?  Are they pass/fail (“every dayâ€, “not even once over the six weeksâ€)?  Is there a reward for the effort, or are you only grading yourself on whether or not you “lose the weight†or “run the distanceâ€?
    A – C25k, 18 workouts (3x week - 6 weeks)
    B – Skipped 1-3 runs
    C – Skipped 4-6 runs
    D – Skipped 7-9 runs
    F – Skipped more than 9 runs
     
    A – BBWW, all 12 workouts
    B – Skipped 1-2 workouts
    C – Skipped 3-4 workouts
    D – Skipped 5-6 workouts
    F – Skipped more than 6 workouts.
     
    What is your plan for continuing/altering/grading those goals if you become ill or injured? Then just like last time, I'll revisit and revise them then.
    Did you take into consideration any special occasions (Passover, Easter, Cinco de Mayo, birthdays, anniversaries, etc) that may occur during the challenge?  What modifications do you need to build into your goals for those? The only one that may be an issue is going to my son's graduation May 23rd, and that will just entail working out around it
    Do any of your main goals conflict with each other? Will one goal make it hard to do another? N/A
    Do you already have the time in your schedule to actually complete the goals you’ve set?  If not, what are you planning to do to make time for them? I do, just have to make sure I do them and not meld with the couch after work! (until homework time!)
    Are you trying to build multiple habits, or is all your energy focused on your main quest? Pretty much all main quest focused

Haha, once I'm home from work I'm just DONE.  It's really hard to get me to move afterwards.  I've found that the easier I set the starting goal, the more inclined I can mek myself go do it. Like walking- 'just walk for like 4 songs and if I still feel like you want to sit down, go back home'.  2.2 miles later and I'm ready to do more. It works, just have to trick my stupid brain.

Subbing for the masters! I know how ya feel about once ya get home. Usually I will not sit down when I get home, unless it's after my workout. Sitting down = merging with the couch/recliner. Good luck!

Good goals!  I think everyone's first challenge is sort of a practice round.  You've got this.

Yeah I can't put things off if I know I'm supposed to be doing something. I don't have the motivation to put something off and then actually do it later. 'Later' never happens, so I have to make it my plan the day before to really get things achieved. Even that's not guaranteed, bahahaha. 

 

Motivation's a hard thing to keep up. :P

I too, am stalking you again, but I'm so assassin you won't be able to find my thread. 

 

I did a C25k run today just to try it out, it was pretty fun. Haven't crafted my goals for the challenge quite yet, but I'm thinkin c25k might be in the mix and I will probably end up with goals similar to yours. I like to grade based on how many workouts I completed, rather than how many I "skipped" though. I might even create a points system so I get a little reward each time I put in the effort. 

 

Good luck!

So far....done my c25k workouts (one more for this week tomorrow) did one additional workout and sitting here in my yoga pants looking for my motivation to do a core yoga workout tonight...been a long week at the new job though and I made the mistake of sitting down!

Have been working on school....not as much as I should, since I can procrastinate like nobody's business....will work on that this evening as well...next week is not my week to cook so that will be one less thing to worry about when I get home!

Oh Shiny!!! *wants*....what was I saying? oh yes, the 80's...I've often thought that same thing, the hairdo's alone are reason enough to be grateful for that...

Though this one isn't too bad...was still early 80's though ;)
