shaeon Posted January 3, 2016 Report Share Posted January 3, 2016 So, a couple of words about my personal inspiration: I am a total fangirl for Kelly Sue DeConnick, comic book writer extraordinaire. She has a motivational text list you can subscribe to which she calls the bgsdlist, aka the Bitches Get Shit Done list. One of Kelly Sue's rallying cries is SMALL BITES. As if the wise words of Kelly Sue weren't enough, I also came across this article today. It's not actually all that different from a lot of the Nerd Fitness blog posts, but for some reason, reading this made it sink in. A problem I've had is goals being too big. I need to scale it down. SMALL BITES. So with that in mind, my goals for the current 4 week challenge are: 1. More sleep, with the following weekly goals: Week 1: Never go to bed after 1 a.m. on a weeknight.Week 2: Never go to bed after 12:50 a.m. on a weeknight.Week 3: Never go to bed after 12:40 a.m. on a weeknight.Week 4: Never go to bed after 12:30 a.m. on a weeknight. 2. Mindfulness about food. I must write down what I eat, taking notes on cravings I was having and how I felt after eating. Here are the weekly goals: Week 1: Record each meal for 4 days out of the week. Week 2: Record each meal for 5 days out of the week. Week 3: Record each meal for 6 days out of the week. Week 4: Record each meal for 7 days out of the week.Note: these are probably the biggest bites I'm taking, with the end goal of recording meals daily. But honestly, this habit is much easier to maintain once it's daily. It is a lot easier to do it every single day than it is to do it only some of the time. 3. Exercise. I must move some each day. Here are weekly goals: Week 1: 15 minutes of exercise daily. Week 2: 16.5 minutes of exercise daily. Week 3: 18 minutes of exercise daily. Week 4: 20 minutes of exercise daily. Note: The exercise can be basically anything - bodyweight, going for a walk, going to the gym, anything. I don't want to be able to give myself excuses not to do it. My life goal is to design and make a bag for my mom. I'm a leather worker, and I want to make a bag for her birthday. I'll be trying a new design on the construction of hers, so that will definitely be a learning experience. I'll work out what points go where at the end of the challenge. I tend to change my mind about what each goal is doing for me during the course of the challenge, so I figure it's better that way. 3 Quote SHAEON Jedi Apprentice Druid Character Sheet Daily Battle Log: Shaeon Restores Balance to the Force Past Challenges: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 Current Challenge: Shaeon Focuses "With great boots comes great responsibility."
