Aaaaaaaand here we are. Brand new year, brand new challenge. Time to come out with guns blazing!.....or bats....maces......crossbows, whatever suits your fancy, and gets you motivated! 

 

For me, this challenge, technically this year, and my ultimate epic quest can be summed up in one sentence.........

 

To train and eat with a purpose.

 

 

And by train I mean mace work, running, lifting or whatever I put my mind to in this coming year.....do it, and do it with enthusiasm......with conscious thought, and with reason and intent.

 

Last year kinda fell flat, but part of the reason for that was because I was going through the motions, but not really putting a purpose behind it. Doing it just to do it because it was habit or what I thought I SHOULD do, but without fire or drive behind it. This year, that's my focus.....not to do something just to do it, but because I WANT to.....because it makes me feel good and gets me where I want to go. Purpose.

 

So, with that Harley is picking up Harley's Mallet and heading back into the game!

 

 

Harley Mission 1: Mace Work

 

 

d76b4e1939aeb3ef5ba468b13f8848ce_zpsnuzm

 

 

I began mace work last challenge and fell. in. love.....

So, I am continuing it this challenge. I may add some lifting back in at some point, but the mace work is my focus this challenge. I am aiming at a rep goal of 415. Once I hit that (which should happen well before this challenge ends) I will readjust my workout with some new moves (shout out to my friend jc) and move up to a 12 lb mace. 

 

This mission means Harley must put in 3 mace workouts for that week. All three means she wins that week's round, 2 means she loses one battle but still passes, and less than two means she lost that round. And I don't intend to let that happen. ;)

 

 

Harley Mission 2:

 

Outrun the cops.  Being evil ain't easy.......and you never know when you will need a backup plan when you run out of gas on a caper.

 

this means speed........

and flexibility................

This mission includes to things, C25k and GMB.

The aim of this mission is to get back into the C25k program on a consistent basis. I've been doing runs on and off but not advancing in the program. I will pick it back up starting with week 2 of the program.

The other part of this mission is to increase my flexibility and become more  limber. I will admit to not being a big fan of yoga and whatnot because I'm not terribly flexible. But, with a nagging knee injury and a consequential tightness in my left hip and thigh from a previous surgery it's a good time to get things loosened back up. I think it will aid the running and everything else. And since we are still in the midst of winter this can be a backup for when weather keeps a run from being feasible.

 

The GMB program can be found here (fabulous site, thank you bestie twin :love_heart: ).......

 

https://gmb.io/

 

This mission means Harley must put in 3 run/GMB workouts minimum for that week. All three means she wins that week's round, 2 means she loses one battle but still passes, and less than two means she lost that round. 

 

 

Harley's Mission 3:

 

 

Water, water everywhere...........

 

margot-robbie-is-wet-and-hot-as-harley-q

 

 

This is a goal I have used a number if times because I tend to get out of the habit easily. I am not big on drinking things period, with the exception of coffee. I can go all day without drinking anything. And Harley is smart enough to know she can't function at her best if she's dehydrated. It affects my desire to snack and eat more, I know dehydration also causes me headaches. But, this goal will also be a two parter in that the overall idea here will be to put more purpose into what I'm fueling my body with so that I get the best results from everything else I'm doing.

 

This mission means Harley must eat and drink with purpose for 6 days that week with one day a week to be a bit more reckless. 5 or more days means she wins that week's round, at least 4 means she loses one battle but still passes, and 3 or means she lost that round.

 

First week I have to get in at least one (20 oz) water bottle each day and no snacks or sugar, week two increases to two water bottles a day, week 3 will be 3 and so on.

 

 

And finally........

 

My life goal is motivated by my friend Bluethunder......and a shoutout to Teros for his help with inspiration.

 

Because  girl needs her down time, Harley is going to do some reading!

Lol, this means one book minimum per challenge. I'm currently listening to the first book in the Dresden Files and would like to work through the entire series.

 

 

And there we have it! 

 

I shall end this with my favorite running song because Harley has a sense of humor. ;)

 

Now let's move it!

 

 

 

Onwards and Upwards!!

"Such is the nature of evil. Out there in the vast ignorance of the world it festers and spreads. A shadow that grows in the dark. A sleepless malice as black as the oncoming wall of night. So it ever was. So will it always be. In time all foul things come forth." ~Thranduil~

 

"No matter who we are, no matter what our circumstances, our feelings and emotions are universal. And music has always been a great way to make people aware of that connection. It can help you open up a part of yourself and express feelings you didn't know you were feeling. It's risky to let that happen. But it's a risk you have to take-- because only then will you find you're not alone." ~Josh Groban~

I love Harley! Can't wait to see what you decide to do for this challenge! 

 

 

I keep getting timeout messages on the web version, not sure what's going on :/

 

Oh me too! She's my favorite game character. ;)

 

Truthfully my goals will be very similar to last challenge with some slight variations. I'm more or less mostly trying to nerd them into my Harley theme, lol.

 

I keep getting that the server is down. :/

 

Hey......I just noticed you have a Ravelry account in your sig. and the giant knitting needles on your Instagram! I officially love you!  :D

 

lol

 

Glad to have you here!  :)
