LadyWitch Posted November 10, 2014 Report Share Posted November 10, 2014 NF Challenge 10th November 2014 - 21st December 2014 I've been really struggling for quite a while. I set goals and then they never get achieved. I say I'm going to do something and it never happens. My weight and measurements have been creeping up over the last 9 months or so, and I've been getting more and more miserable. So, I'm going to use this challenge as a restart. I still intend to take part in the Tough Mudder at the end of May, which means I need to get back in the game sooner rather than later. I'm going to hit 'restart' on my training, which will be helped by the fact that I've started pole dance classes (which hurt like crazy!) and my husband has agreed to go to ballroom classes with me. Which means I'll be dancing three times a week. I'm going to leave the 'cardio' portion at that for now, but I want to try to do at least 1 bodyweight workout each week (obviously more is better, but I figure if I can build a habit of doing 1 workout, then I can build it up as I go). I've also slipped on doing my daily yoga, so I want to get that back into that habit. Here are my goals for this challenge: The Main Quest...Dance, walk, eat my way to a better me! Goals to achieve this:1/ Return to eating 80% Paleo each week. My version does allow dark chocolate (if its 75% or above) and honey. I also allow oats as I don't seem to have a reaction to them.2/ Dance 3x each week3/ Strength train 1x a week 4/ Yoga 7x a week (this is non-negotiable... I WILL do a session everyday. This is essential for my back, and will allow me to continue to do everything else) Grading: I'm removing 'fail' from my vocabulary. If something doesn't get done, then yes it's not good... But it's not the end of the world and not worth stressing about or getting upset over. If I succeed at meeting my goals at least 50% of the time, I'll be happy! Life Quest...Last challenge I wanted to make a corset, which I did. This time I want to make my husband one. It'll be his Christmas present, so I need to get started on it ASAP! Motivations...To be strong enough to lift my own body off the ground with ease, so that I don't make a fool of myself at the Tough Mudder on the 30th May 2015. Starting stats:Weight: 171lb Bust: 40Chest: 32 Waist: 32 Hips: 44 Thigh: 26 Tracking:1/ Paleo: 0/42 2/ Dance: 0/183/ Strength: 0/64/ Yoga: 0/42 Life quest (corset): 0% complete Quote Check out my character here!
