Riverleaf challenges the Night's Watch

"You know nothing, Jon Snow."  41 year old married mom of one takes on the Night's Watch!  This is the year I take care of me.   I'm a hobbit, 5'1" and ultimately looking to lose 160lbs, down 18 so far.  The weight is coming off a lot slower than I'd hoped, but this time it's coming off for good. 

 

Overall goal: To lose 10 more pounds. 

 

I'm the kind of person who:

 

1. Does a bodyweight workout 2x a week.  I'm starting with Darbee's Night's Watch workout and working up to Level 1: 3 sets.   So I will start with one set, and build up through the weeks.   (#/2 + bonus points for progression to 3 sets by end of six weeks.)

 

2. Does 20+ mins of cardio 5 times a week.  Gotta keep up the stamina to flee from the White Walkers. (#/5)

 

3. Gratitude Journal - write down 2 things I'm grateful for every day.  (p/f)  *I'm going to stick to the workouts I have, and save yoga for a future goal.  I have some unwelcome visitors over the next few weeks and I'm going to need to keep a positive mindset.  

 

Life goal:  I really want to do Nanowrimo, but I think i better sit this one out and stick to my 10 min of French daily goal.

I had to look up "Nanowrimo", that looks like an awesome future quest.

 

More than 10% of the way to your weight loss goal :)  You got this.

Subbed! Great goals. I like that you are building yourself up. Seeing progress is awesome and addictive!

What sort of cardio do you enjoy?

 

Ha!  Sozzielou - I bribe myself to ride my exercise bike by watching TV.  :)  Currently watching reruns of Firefly.  ;)  Someday I hope to say there's a form of exercise that I "enjoy".

Thanks Jrosto!   Hadn't thought of it like that!  :)  Nanowrimo is super fun.  I've participated for the last two years, and "won" both years.  It is a big commitment though and I'm trying to cut down on those in my life.  :)

Hello fellow Doodlie :D

 

Great goals! You could always set a lower word count goal for NaNo if you REALLY want to participate but make it a bit easier and more like National Novella Month ;) But ten minutes of French is an awesome goal too, I really need to get back to practicing my French at some point...

I missed the French bit.  If I'm not mistaken I think Ninjakitten is learning French too

If you ever do get back into French, I can't say enough good stuff about the app Memrise.

I was all gung ho on battle logging this week and I've missed two days of exercise in a row.   :(  Not feeling super great this week. 

 

Salut, ninjakitten.  Ça va?  Est-ce que tu voudrais étudier français avec moi?  Et toi, spookyfoot?  J'aime l'app Memrise.  C'est super!

I like duolingo, but I like that memrise gives sentence builders and not a long list of vocab. I've been reading Fluent Forever and he talks about not learning vocab in chunks like all fruits or all animals because it's easier to remember separately. So green and frog and pond are good together but frog fish tadpole would be confusing.

I agree and will probably start using memrise again when I get further along in duo lingo. I did like memrise when I used it

Hi Doc (off topic) I use Pimsleur for German :) It's great!

I've heard good things about pimsleur but haven't really checked into it much.

Il n'y a pas une problème que tu n'ai pas faire de l'exercice. Il y a toujours demain :D

 

Ca'va bien, merci! Je pense que je lirai"Le Petit Prince" en Francais pour s'entraine mon Francais, c'est un bon livre que j'ai dans ma chambre :D

 

Man I need to practice my tenses, I totally forgot all of them. So much for six years of French classes....

E, bonjour Riverleaf! J'etais en France pendant le dernier challenge, et j'apprendi que j'ai vraiement besoin de practiquer aussi. Si vous voulez parler (en fait, ecrire) en francais, je serais disponible :)

 

I have no idea what your french level is, but if that was elusive, let me know (or i suppose Google ;) )

 

Bonjour Tourennatrix, comment bonne chance!  Je voudrais pratiquer avec vous.  Merci!

Bien sur que c'est vrai.  Demain toujours arrive!   je fait du exercice. 

 

Le Petit Prince!  Super!  C'est un objectif louable!  (I had to google that phrase, not sure if it's proper! :)
