Jill Beat Posted April 7, 2015 Report Share Posted April 7, 2015 Last challenge went pretty well. I got back into this whole 6-week challenge game and feel I gained a bit of momentum, and I want to keep that rolling! I'm sticking pretty close to my last challenge goals, but re-vamping the stuff that didn't work so well. And even though it's not listed, I do plan to keep going with the stuff that I did nail down - like journalling. Goals 1) Whole30-ish - The whole30 I just completed went well and then got ruined by the Easter holiday. So I plan to get back on track and eat well, because this is what I know I need. There's a little leeway for hanging out with other people (mainly in the booze department) but I plan to keep it reasonable in those circumstances, order good food, and smart drink choices. After eating junk lately I feel gross. 2) Get to bed by 10pm/wake up at 5:30am - My goal here is to give myself time to exercise in the morning, and still get a solid night's sleep (7.5 hours) No snooze button. Likely going to sleep in my gym clothes. 3) Exercise 3x per week - This time I have a new strategy. As per above, I'm trying to give myself a strict bedtime so that I can exercise in the morning without compromising my sleep. I'm going to exercise 3x/week, and foam roll/ball rolling on the other days. That way I get adequate rest and self care, and don't screw up my sleep by only getting up early on some days! i have given myself 1 day a week off from either activity because I feel like if I'm staying at the bf's, neither will happen, and that's okay. Life Goals4) Check/play on my phone less - I'm really bad for being on my phone too much. I got an app called Moment (free) that tracks the amount of time you spend on your phone, as well as how many times you pick it up. I find I don't necessarily spend THAT much time on my phone/day, but my pickups get crazy sometimes. Over the last week and a half, my pick ups have averaged 83 times/day. Assuming I"m sleeping 8 hours, that's 5 times an hour!! And that's the average! My highest day it was 138 pickups - almost 9 times an hour. Sheesh!!! So my goal is to try to reduce that week over week to eventually only 30 times per day. That still sounds high, but that counts checking every text, etc. 5) Meet some more nerds coming to camp - I'm going to try to follow 2 new people's challenges so that I can get to know some more people before camp. This will likely be a reoccurring goal (adding 2 new people each time). To measure this goal, I plan to write on their challenges at least once per week. Prioritizing to get my house ready to sell- this one is a bit more vauge and unmeasurable, but what I would really like to accomplish is to continue to purge crap I don't need in my house and paint the walls, and work on keeping things tidy all the time. Tracking:1) Whole30: 2.5/7 0/7 0/7 0/7 0/7 0/7 = 0/42 2) Sleep: 1/6 0/6 0/6 0/6 0/6 0/6 = 0/363) Exercise: 1/3 0/3 0/3 0/3 0/3 0/3 = 0/183b ) Yoga Tune Up: 2/3 0/3 0/3 0/3 0/3 0/3 = 0/184) Phone pickups:week 1 - 0/60 0/60 0/60 0/60 0/60 0/60 0/60week 2 - 0/50 0/50 0/50 0/50 0/50 0/50 0/50week 3 - 0/45 0/45 0/45 0/45 0/45 0/45 0/45week 4 - 0/40 0/40 0/40 0/40 0/40 0/40 0/40week 5 - 0/35 0/35 0/35 0/35 0/35 0/35 0/35week 6 - 0/30 0/30 0/30 0/30 0/30 0/30 0/305) New nerd friends - 0/2 0/2 0/2 0/2 0/2 0/2 = 0/12 So this looks a lot heavier than my regular challenges, but I feel like some of it is repeat, and some of it is actually combined with other goals (i.e. sleep & exercise go hand in hand). Let's do this!! 5 Quote NF Challenge #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8, #8.5, #9, #10, #11, currently #12 Fitness with Jill on Facebook!
