LadyWitch Posted January 6, 2015 Report Share Posted January 6, 2015 It's now 21 weeks until the Tough Mudder, and I'm no more prepared than I was 6 months ago. But due to the snow that is currently coating the ground, the chances of me going running any time soon are slim to none. So, I'm going to work on strength and weight loss instead. My actual goals are pretty much the same as last time, but I've foolishly allowed my friend (and pole instructor/fellow TM nut) to challenged me to a 30 day push up/plank/squat challenge... which I started on 1st January, and is going ok (although the squats are killing me!) And I'm going to aim for 100% paleo, as much as possible. I also have a fitbit on order, which should hopefully arrive today! (This challenge thread is being posted a day late, as I spent the weekend at my inlaws for the 80th birthday party of my husbands grandmother... bad things were consumed...) 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 100% Paleo each week. My version does allow dark chocolate (if its 75% or above) and honey. *edit* I'm going to be tracking all food/exercise in MFP, and have set a cap of 1800 cals a day. I know normally on paleo you don't need to count calories, but as I'm struggling to stick to full paleo, this is my fail safe.2/ Dance 3x each week3/ 30 Day Challenge Push up/squats 7x a week4/ 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...Save. Save. Save. I want to go to the Oxford Conference of Corsetry in August, so need to save enough to pay for my ticket (Â£650 for the weekend plus travel costs). So my goal is to spend as little as possible, and even then, only buy the essentials (food, household things etc). My goal for this challenge is to have Â£250 in my savings account. Motivations...(This is exactly the same as last time) 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.
