Ack. So it's Monday and I'm finally getting my booty in gear to make my new challenge. Ooops.

 

I will do a theme next challenge. (hopefully) But this challenge is just freestyle.

So first up. I have to face the fork. Sigh.

I must start tracking food, even though I hates it. It works. It makes me drink less beer, or at least skip some chocolate for more beer later.

Track all the days.

Then more miles! I kind of peetered out last challenge on miles and was only doing about 2 a day. So this time, let's hit 3 a day (I can average, in case of epic hikes, more on that later).

 

Then more water. Somehow because it wasn't on the challenge....I decided that I was a camel and needed not to hydrate. Bad. Bad for me and bad for eating. So 64oz a day, more for bonus points.

Go on new adventures. I picked adventurer for a reason dammit.

So hike at least 4 new trails or places during the challenge. Bonus points for extras!

These are just the things that usually happen, but I'm putting them here to remind me.

 

Meditate...this one should be easier, since I now like it and it's a habit. Yay.

Strength...two pilates classes a week. ( I may add the third strength in as a challenge later...I've sucked at getting in so far)

Read 15 a day.

Keep reminding myself that all this, makes me stronger, happier and will someday get me an ass to compete with Def's.

Great looking challenge, Dom! Ack for the food tracking, I am right there with you. If you're interested, there is a Doodlie contingent on MFP because misery loves company.

I'd totally join that Doodlie club. Oh wait, I'd join all the Doodlie clubs...how do I find such a thing?

I use the MFP...I use a different acronym in my head.

Well Doodlie Club is a rather grandiose term for some of us following each others progress on there and laughing at the funny meals we track so.... 

 

I'll pm you my profile link :D

Ok so totally not fitness related adventure last night, but nerd related for sure. Went to go see Tony DiTerlizzi do a talk with George RR about art and creating and writing and it was awesome. http://diterlizzi.com/home/(in case you don't know who Tony is, he's awesome).

 

Mile are ramping up. Got 2.5 on Monday, 3.2 on Tuesday and so far today 1.7. Yay.

I'm tracking the food. Sigh. I still hates it. Went over calories yesterday...hello beer.

Did good on day one of the anti camel campaign...yesterday...not so good unless you count beers. 

Meditation on track.

Did Pilates on Monday, almost not sore today.

And I'm rocking the reading.

 

So far, so good.

Just got back from an adventure that got a little more adventurey than I expected. Hike ended up in river bottom with lots of willows to fight my way through and now I have super wet feet. My love of not following the trail gets me in trouble sometimes. Hah. I'm going to count it as a new trail, even though there wasn't much of a trail.  :playful:

Ended up with 2.8 miles on Wed, 1.8 on Thurs, 1.6 on Friday, but that may have been more...did a walk without the phone on accident. Oops. THen I got 4.5 on Sat and 3.5 today YAY. Oh and a bike ride on Saturday that included another trail I'd never been on that was 6.38 miles. So my total for Mordor is 19.4. And I still have another walk I have to do today for my dogs PT. That's almost an average of 3 a day. Closer to the end goal for sure.

 

I tracked the food. At least I did that. All was good food wise except Friday that involved beers (yum), nachos (yum) and chicken flautas....I went over the recommended amount a couple of days, but not a huge amount. I will get the hang of this. Grrr.

 

Meditation, check. Water, need improvement but not terrible. Reading, on it! Pilates, twice this week...and my abs were killing me on Saturday.

 

So not a bad first week, the warming weather is totally helping. Next week's challenge, more of the same and find a new pillow. Mine is trying to kill me.

Harumph.

So last week. Um. Started out good. Fell off fast in a whirlwind weekend of beer and pizza rolls (homemade and super delish) none of which I logged. Crap.

 

I'm back on track so far this week. Pre made some salads on Sunday and ate one for lunch today....so yummy.

 

Mileage last week 10 miles. Also crap.

 

New adventures....nope.

 

Ok time to dust myself off and get going again. Time to remind myself why I'm doing this. Ack.

Waaay better mileage this week, thanks to a couple really great hikes

and one crazy adventure through an amazing art exhibition/time warp. https://meowwolf.com/

21 miles this week. YAY.

Food tracking. Um. I didn't. Bad. But I did eat better thanks to some food prep of some great salads. Pre made salads are one of my new favorite things.

I did eat chicken flautas again. So yummy.

5 more days of this challenge and I think I'm getting my groove back. Better late than never.

It's called Tent Rocks and it's just south of Santa Fe, New Mexico. It's super cool.

So this last week I finished with 16.9 miles. Yay.

I sucked at food tracking. I think I need to find another way to make it work better. I like to eat a lot of variety, and figuring out what all those things equal in MFP is a ton of work and makes me not do it. Hmmm. Maybe I'll just go to paper and try to make sure I don't eat ridiculous things. Dunno.

I was terrible at water again. Sigh. Back to filling the water bottles and just making myself do it.

I got awesome at being more regular at meditation, which is saving my sanity currently.

I did manage to got to another new trail so I totally did 4 new trails this challenge, so yay for more adventure.

This challenge was not too bad not too great....kind of in the middle. Almost ready for next round!
