Wren Posted April 14, 2015 Report Share Posted April 14, 2015 Over the winter I got lazy and stopped taking care of myself. I ate poorly, stopped yoga, and only walked occasionally. Now I am paying for it. My digestive issues are back, I hurt pretty much all of the time, and I have recently been forced to admit that I am skinny fat. I plan to use this challenge to start to get back to where I was. My focus will be getting my health issues under control. Fitness Goals: Practice yoga five days a week. Past experience has shown that regular yoga practice is the best way to manage my fibromyalgia. It also helps with stress, which will be important as I head into the busy season at work. Grading: A - Practice yoga 30 times; B - Practice yoga 25 - 29 times; C - Practice yoga 20-24 times; D - Practice yoga 15-19 times; F - Practice yoga less than 15 timesEliminate dairy from my diet. Dairy is one of the things that causes digestive issues for me. In the first three weeks, I will look for alternatives to commonly used dairy products, such as milk, yogurt, and cheese. In the last three weeks of the challenge I will focus on eating dairy-free. This gives me time to do my research, but also gives me a definite time to switch from a research focus to a focus on fixing the problem. I haven't figured out the grading scale for this one. It may end up as pass or fail. Either I go dairy-free in the last three weeks and pass or I don't.Practice handstands for five minutes, five days a week. This one is just for fun. I like the idea of being able to do a handstand. When I was younger I took gymnastics, but I was never good at handstands. Now I can't stay up for even a second. I want to do this so that I can say I have finally accomplished something that has been a challenge for me since I was a kid. I may not make it to a full handstand by the end of this challenge, so I have decided to use the practice to set my goal rather than accomplishing a handstand. Grading: A - Practice handstands 30 times; B - Practice handstands 25 - 29 times; C - Practice handstands 20-24 times; D - Practice handstands 15-19 times; F - Practice handstands less than 15 times Life Goal: Complete the Kamana One study. I have purchased the Kamana One materials for the Kamana Naturalist Training Program. I am good at my job, but I feel that my naturalist skills are one area that could use some improvement. I have heard good things about this program. The training is divided into four parts and Kamana One, the first part, is supposed to take 4-6 weeks. That makes it perfect for the challenge. I will set up the grading for this challenge once I have a better understanding of how the course is supposed to work Starting stats:Height: 5'2"Weight: 127 lbs.Waist: 28.5"Body fat %: 28% (figured using an online calculator) Quote Pixie AdventurerExercise is not an option - it is a requirement.Current Challenge Link to comment
