And sometimes life gets all life-y............

 

 

So, new challenge. Wasn't sure where I wanted to be this round. I thought of returning to my battle log since I felt like there wasn't much new to bring into this challenge, then I decided that some currently stressful mojo might try to use that to lure me into some complacency. And that's the last thing I want so new challenge it is. Then I debated whether my goals still match up with the new description for the Adventurers and considered moving to the Rangers......but, right now I don't think I'm ready for any major chnages. This challenge will be to get me back on my feet (after falling on short on the last challenge) and get the ball rolling again. Then maybe next challenge reconsider what I'll be doing and where I'll be doing it. ;)

 

Okay, as for goals I'll be pretty much picking up from last challenge and going with it.......

 

Harley Mission 1: Mace Work

 

I smashed my 416 rep goal and actually ended last challenge with a rep count of 428! (YAY!!)

My current plan is to purchase a 10lb mace in the next couple of weeks and restart my rep count from 140 with a revamped routine. 

Until then I will follow my current routine and possibly continue raising the rep count. 

 

 

Harley Mission 2:

 

Again this mission includes two elements, c25k and GMB Focused Flexibility.

Though I failed to post it at the end of my last challenge I did indeed do 3 days of the FF program last week.......holy crimeny, I had DOMS in places I didn't even think it was possible, lol. I do however realize I have a long way to go with this. I've got a lot of tightness in my spine and left side and inner thigh muscles. So, as much as this is enjoyable in some ways. It's equally painful and slow in others. But, hopefully as I progress this will aid tremendously in a lot of things and maybe even my return to lifting in a future challenge. Plus, I might eventually learn to like yoga. :tongue:

Also need to pick back up on the C25k, the weather is getting warmer here and I have not made it very far into this program and I'd like to. 

 

Harley's Mission 3:

 

Eat and drink with purpose.....

And this is something I failed on the last two weeks of the last challenge. Withbeing sick and the additional stress I just didn't get back into really keeping a tight reign on it. I was eating with purpose, just the wrong one. :tongue:

Time to clean that up. I plan to continue my water goal (currently 3-4  of my 20 oz water bottles a day), and cutting the sugar and snacks 6/7 days a week.

 

 

Now............ Mission 4: Life Goal

 

Adulting

 

c8ed1e5f0fb85d7c818b8b7ae7550317.jpg

​

 

As much as Harley can be reckless and have her fun there is work to do. A part of the stress lately is feeling like I'm falling behind trying to keep up with everything that needs doing in a 24 hour period. And when I get stressed and overwhelmed it can cause an almost paralysis in getting anything done. So, my goal here is to spend a minimum of 30 min. on a project that needs doing and get it done. I currently need to get rid of some clutter, revamp my pantry, and sell some junk for starters. And I need to fit this in with the current adulting demands that take priority. So, this goal will also include sitting down each evening and spending 15 min. at least focusing my Harley brain on what I need to get accomplished the next day. Preferably in the form of a written list to keep me on track.

 

I am also throwing in a Bonus Goal to continue with reading/ listening through the Dresden Files. Book 2 was indeed finished for last challenge! (Woot!) This challenge will include getting through at least book 3. :)

 

Now....grading is going to be real simple here, each day is a pass or fail on each goal. I either got it or I didn't. At the end of the week if there are more passes than fails, I'm good and Harley has succeeded. If on the other hand, I have more fails than passes then some reevaluation needs to occur.

 

And there we have it. Onwards and upwards guys. ;)

Interesting. So, when you say "10lb mace" do you mean an implement of medieval warfare? or is it something like an Indian club? ;-)

 

Lol.......this...... :)

Though I like to think of it more as a 'implement of medieval warfare'. ;)

"Eating with purpose" she says... Why am I picturing mountains of pie and seas of chocolate mousse? ;)

Lol....I think I need to define that eating with purpose more clearly, lol. :P

 

I officially name you queen of finding perfect internet pictures! :D

(I swear I have searched a bazillion Harley pics and never saw that one.)

 

Uhm.....no pie or chocolate mousse (drat it all :P ), but I won't deny there might have been pizza involved.  :nevreness: 

 

 

 And I shall not disappoint on either! ;)

 

Love you my bestie twin beastie!! :cheerful::love_heart:

Yay!! Looks good Ash! I have been setting my timer for 15 min and cleaning as much as I can in those 15 min. Its surprising how much you can get done. Love the goals! I certainly like to eat with purpose too ;) Unfortunately it backfires.

 

Well if anyone breaks into your house you can take them out with your mace! :P I pity anyone who tries.
