Domirev Chapter 3: Slow but Steady but never Stopping

Recommended Posts

Alrighty then.

 

My stomach had other plans for my last challenge. I did lose weight, but probably not in the most healthy way. Dang it.

What I did learn from all that is, just keep going. And maybe if I make my goals a little smaller, I can do more celebrating and certainly that will make me keep going.

 

 

So, I will keep walking but I'll be dropping my daily goal to 6,000 steps. That's around 2.5 miles a day. So average 17.5 a week and 65 miles over the whole challenge. I may not get to freaking Mordor fast, but I will get there.

I'm keeping meditation. Maybe more mindfulness will make my stomach happier too. Can't hurt.

So 3 times a week with bonus points for more.

Then at least 3 strength workouts a week. Two pilates classes (pretty easy since they are scheduled)

But to add a little boost, I want to do 5 real life serious fancy pants pushups. I can do about one and half right now before my wimpy arms give up.

Then we have the last challenge. A sketch every day in the sketchbook. No excuses.

So there they are. Slightly simpler, slightly smaller, but here we go.

 

In other news, I have somehow found myself the captain of the Cronuts. I'm sorry that the leadership of the Doodlies has fallen to such sad levels, but I will try to at least figure out what I'm supposed to do. Def promises to help and save us if I blow it.

Go Cronuts!!!

Day 4

6,433 steps 2.5 miles. Yah.

Meditated check!

Strength...sat around and thought about how much my butt hurt from yesterday...surprisingly, arms ok.

Did not draw....boo. It was a busy day with businessey meetings and then we went and watched Leonardo Di Caprio crawl around in the snow for 3 hours, aka saw the Revenant.

Oh and I had pizza and a beer and loved it.

Day 5

Ooops only 3629 steps. 1.4 miles.

Meditated check! 10 days in a row.

Pilates at 8 which my arms are not happy about, but they deserve it.

Did not draw. bad.

 

Day 6.

8740 steps.....RAWR. 3.9 miles. Plus a 4 mile mountain bike ride (which almost killed me, but it was good to get back on the bike)

Meditated. 

No strength.

And did not draw, but did good deeds by hanging out with my mom and cleaning the house.

 

Day 7.

Well it being the american holiday of the Super Bowl. There will be ridiculous eating and ginger margaritas. Does that count as a new recipe?

I will go walk and report back later.

I'll try to sneak a meditation in.

 

So all in all this week has been pretty good. I'll average it all out later.

Week 2 of insanity.

I walked, rode mtn bikes in the desert for 52 miles! So if I divide the biking I get a grand total of 30.5 miles.

I meditate 3 out of 7. Unless you could when I was trying to mindful on the bike....mostly I was trying not to die.

Strength I did one out of 3. 

And I drew none.

 

We went to way southwest Texas and went to a fantastic mountain bike festival there in the desert. I rode more than I have in a year and a half and it really felt pretty good. I've lost some technical skill but I can still go, so that was great. I drank lots of delicious beer so I probably counteracted all the good cardio I did, but it really was fantastic.

 

Back to real life but with the added bonus of feeling like my body is getting back to being strong enough to take on some really fun adventures.

Obviously next challenge will be about what is on my fork and in my pint glass.

Thanks Spooky!

 

Ok Here's a late update.

Week Three. Day one:

Walked 2751 1.3 miles. Ooops.

Meditated, yup!

Strength...pilates crazy pants style. My teacher, who I love is a bit crazy.

Drew. Nope. Dang, why is this one so easy to not do?

 

Day 2:

Walked 7,141, 3 miles, that's more like it.

Meditated....um nope, went to see Deadpool and have date night with husband unit. 

Strength. not today.

Drew. See above watched awesome move and hung out and drank beer...but did not have pizza had a nice chicken burger instead.

 

I'm back in the morning walk thing after vacation, so that's good. Meditation is doing much better than last challenge. But life got busy and drawing is totally taking a back burner. Maybe it was one too many new habits to add. Maybe I can only do one at a time.

Anyway I'll try again today, slow and steady.

Hey how did it get to be Friday?

Wed I did 5,337 steps 2.5 miles.

Meditated, check

Should have done strength, but didn't. Oops.

Did not draw. Bah.

 

Thursday

I did 3,811 steps 1.8 miles. Sigh.

Meditated, yay.

Did a killer pilates workout.

Did not draw. 

I also did some awesome dog training, which has nothing to do with this challenge, but makes me happy anyway. Oh and got some more jobs. And tried a new recipe that was awesome and easy. Hello Orange Ginger Crockpot Chicken, I like you.

Ok what happened this week. I fell off the boards. Life got busy...but it's all good.

So this challenge I managed to make meditation a habit. YAY.

I think I've conquered the naughty stomach.

I didn't draw as much as I'd like, but I did get a ton of creative stuff done...so I'll call that a fair trade.

I walked everyday....but I think I need to up my miles or maybe my intensity or both for crying out loud.

I'm 131 miles closer to Mordor, but I think it's time to challenge myself a bit more.

I think it's time to battle the war of the fork for next time.
