Subtitlted: Wonder Woman battles the Dark Playground and the Clutter that attempts to control her life

 

Since joining NF I’ve been able to take control of my food choices and my fitness.  I obviously still struggle with these but I have come a long way in building good habits.  I've lost 80 pounds since joining and started doing new activities that I never would have dreamed of before.  Life is getting pretty awesome. But now that I have accomplished so much and have a different mindset in those areas, there are some other negative habits I am ready to tackle.

 

Boring Backstory

My current habits of filling my time seem to resemble my old habits of filling my belly.  Filling my belly with bad food only makes me want more bad food since I was never really sated.  Now I fill my time with procrastination and either never get the good stuff done or it takes longer since I am wasting my energy ‘multitasking’ and sacrificing quality.  My space is filled with poor quality clutter that I don’t have the time to manage.  If I filled less space with poor quality clutter, I could use that space for quality items that bring joy into my life and that use less of my time to maintain.

Also, since making food choices and working out a priority, I managed to make time for them.  This has left little time left for other priorities and fun activities. So, just as I made time for food prep to foster better food choices, I want to make better choices about how I use up my precious time and space to foster more quality time and better surroundings.  

 

I made time for food prep.  I made time for working out.  I just changed my priorities and changed the entire way I live my life.  But my other priorities haven’t disappeared.  I still have plenty that I have to do with a little less time than before to do it.  And I’ve realized more things that I want to do and I want to have the time to enjoy my life.  Not just binge watch TV while I do other responsibilities.  

 

You can check out more of my boring backstory in my previous challenges in my signature link as well as my 2016 Roadmap.

 

Present Day: So I found this article on Briniel’s last challenge.   The way it portrays procrastination is really helpful in visualizing and tackling this bad habit.  I spend too much time in the Dark Playground and never focus on the work in the Dark Woods.  I should be able to get more done and have more time to actually enjoy my free time in the Happy Playground.  using this metaphor really helps me visualize the enemy and work on this habit.  Tied up with this habit of procrastination is my tendency to create clutter and then procrastinate its demise.  Tackling these habits also aligns with my 2016 roadmap.  Battling procrastination will not only help me be more productive but it should allow for more actual free time to do some of the epic quests things I never seem to have time for. 

 

My other goals aren’t really changing.  Eat. Lift. Ruck. Sleep. Fight Villains. Repeat.

Bulletproof Bracelets

Macros. Calories under 1600, at least 100g protein, preferably 120g carbs or less but this is not as strict.  All subject to change.  And change it has.  I'm going to use this challenge to try and unlock my macros for optimal performance.

Attempt #1:  Stay at 1600 calories except for recovery days. Recovery days will be 1700 calories. Also, per trainer, use all the calories. If I have calories leftover at the end of the day, use them...but use them well. 

 

Amazonian Strength

Lift 3 days a week (and whatever else the trainer throws at me)

 

Lasso of Truth

 

Ruck 3 days a week, still no distance or time requirement.  Just get out there.  

 

Tiara

Battle the Dark Playground.  I identify so much with this article on procrastination.  My biggest issues are either just putting things off that have to get done until the Panic Monster comes out or I ‘multitask’ by doing some of my work with the TV on in the background or pretend that I can play Sims at the same time.  Each week I'll make a To-Do list for each category in my Passion Planner and prioritize. I know I can’t just jump in and be productive all the time so my goal will be to spend at least 5 tomatoes a week on my to-do list items without distractions.  The goal here is to train the instant gratification monkey to behave with little time-outs in the Dark Woods so i can get some work done.

 

The Dark Playground

1834665629_33d6a727bb.jpg

 

 

 

Based on my 2016 roadmap these are the items that I need to spend more time on:

·         Reading - I have not yet selected a book for this challenge...  

·         Keeping the house tidy (Fly Lady)

·         KonMari – This challenge’s focus is books.  (I’m a little frightened)

·         Being productive

o   Being prepared for class

o   Boy Scout treasurer duties

o   Personal paperwork and tasks

o   Being less distracted at work

 

Some rules and exceptions:

v  I’ll use the pomodoro method to work on any category and work on each individual task in order of priority.

 

 

KonMari is not subject to the pomodoro method. Once I pick a subcategory to work I just have to do it.  There is no quitting 25 minutes into a project. I’d have a mess of books everywhere.  This will be               graded pass/fail at the end of the challenge.

 

Time spent on tidying will be in 15 minute increments rather than the 25 for the pomodoro method.   25 minutes of Flylady is intimidating.

 

For each time block, if I finish all the tasks for that category, I must finish the time block with another activity.

 

Work productivity will be handled differently.  I will be grading based on time spent NOT working.  If I use a pomodoro time block to work on class prep but do it while at work, this hurts work productivity.            Each day I’ll grade my work productivity A – F and I’ll take the average weekly.

 

Tasks can still be completed outside of time blocks, as I’m sure I’ll spend some time in the Dark Playground.  As long as I am focusing on my tasks and staying in the Dark Woods during the pomodoro              time blocks, it counts as a pass. 

 

I do NOT need to complete each task in each category to pass this goal. I am starting with just accomplishing those 5 time blocks. 

 

Villain Face-Off Battle

 

Since my fitness and diet goals are pretty consistent there will be a heavy emphasis on productivity.  As in the past, each villain has 2 categories of goals that are required to defeat them.  Other NF rebels sign up to represent a villain.  Each week, I’ll randomly select a villain and both myself and the villain will select a goal in each category.  Highest score or closest to 100% wins the Face-Off.  I award myself 1 stat point for every win (or draw) representing the skill that best matches the goal category. 

 

This challenge’s villains:  Pick Your Own Villain!!!   In order to sign up, please select a DC villain and sign up with your name and your villain’s name on the sign up sheet.  Posting your own villain pic is optional.  Please limit yourself to existing villains, thanks.  Also, select your categories.. At least 1 category must be Epic Quest or General Health.  For the second goal you can also select from Food, Strength, or Conditioning.   We will each pick our own goals, but the villain picks the category.  Wonder Woman does not get to pick her villain’s strengths so she must be able to defeat whatever presents itself.

There are a lot of pics like that of Wonder Woman.  She's a lover and a fighter.

Wanna maybe give a few examples of options to get the thoughts moving around

 

You mean in regards to fighting Batman rather than a villain?  It needn't be any different than fighting the villains.  If you put Batman is as your character name on the sign up sheet and then choose your goal categories then Wonder Woman will battle Batman, same as the others. well based on the roll of a die anyway.  And Wonder Woman will beat Batman, same as the others.

That may be true, battling you was very tough.  But, it turned out to be an awesome week for both of us!

I'm here to watch you tackle the procrastination beast.  I have a lot of similar problems, where I'll have simple little tasks, but then just for whatever reason just can't or won't tackle them right away, which leaves me both with a lot of mental clutter (since I'm still worrying on some level about the task I need to do) and physical clutter.
