RES Posted May 31, 2015 Report Share Posted May 31, 2015 No, my goal this challenge is not to look like this at the end... (I don't look good as a blonde, nor do I have the patience for that hairstyle) *Warning, rambling thoughts and nonsense ahead...you have been warned!*This will be my 10th challenge here at NF, and while I am not even going to try and lie and say they have all been perfect and successful, I have learned a lot in my almost 18 months here...first thing I have learned is as much as I would like to be, I am not, nor will I ever be, perfect...I am human (and a Scorpio, just so you know how much it pains me to admit the human part! LOL) As such I have always prided myself at doing and succeeding at whatever I set my mind to...like when I quit smoking two years ago, set it down, cold turkey, haven't touched one since...I had set my mind to it and that was that...so WHY is that not working for sugar/crap and exercise?? The only thing I have been able to determine is I am too focused on the 'perfect' aspect of it instead of realizing that I am not and allowing for the human aspect...(aka, me) I spend too much time beating myself up when I don't do something (or do, like have a bite of desert that my staff just made from scratch and they're so freaking proud of it, and determine that the rest of the day is down the drain because of it, instead of limiting it to one bite and going on with my life).So last challenge I realized when I wasn't focused on the "must do this workout this many times a week" to 'get the points' I realized I was doing more than I thought I was, like putting away 115 piece trucks instead of getting up and doing 20 minutes on the elliptical...so I am going to continue that philosophy into this challenge Goals this challengeWorkout 3 times a weekEat Right (for me this is Paleo, YMMV)Work on course 3 times a week, at least 30 minutes Noted items...not challenge goals but need to keep in mind for a healthier work/life balance..Leave work by 5:30, I have an alarm set on my phone to help with thisDaily Housecleaning Checklist, so it does not get out of hand and overwhelmingI enjoy reading, make time each day to read something (NF and FB doesn't count! I have tons of books on kindle that have not even been opened lol) Ideally I would like to get back to elliptical 3 times a week and kettlebell/bodyweight 2-3 times a week...but it's not about perfect this time 7 Quote RES...and I want to live days worth dying for Current: RES: Wrestle, It's all about the pin Spoiler Magickal, Eclectic, Goddess, Level 75 |1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10|11|12|13|14|15|16|17|18|19|20|21|22|23|24|25|26|27|28|29|30|31|32|33|34|35|36|37|38|39|40|41|42|43|44|45|46|47|48|49|50|51|52|53|54|55|56|57|58|59|60|61|62|63|64|65|66|67|68|69|70|71|72|73|74|75|76|77|78|79|80| | My Character Page | Tracking Spreadsheet | My Blog | Growth happens when you care more about the well being of your future self than the comfort of your present self!
