I am Odinson_Rising. This is what I do.


Recommended Posts

Life is hard. I'll be harder. 

 

To wield Mjolnir, one must be worthy. I know that's not me, yet, but it will be. I've tried and failed a number of times. That doesn't mean I can just give up. Not now, not ever. So here we are again, on the raggedy edge. There's progress to be made. Let's do that.

 

My goals:

I'm going to work out, (Stronglifts 5x5 or cardio) at least 3 times a week.

I'm going to track my food, either on paper, in an app, or in a spreadsheet. Every bite.

I'm going to drink more water. Let's start with 1/2 gallon daily.

And,

I'm going to read at least 30 minutes every day.

I've got lots of good stuff to read at home, including Steve's book, and now seems like a good time to get brains deep into some literary goodness.

 

So that's it. Let's go to work.

I like your challenge goals. I'll be following along if you don't mind.

 

What kind of books do you like reading? Maybe I can offer some suggestions if you run out of reading materials.

Heya Tanktimus, Atrytone, and Raxie! Thanks for joining this white-knuckle Bifrost ride to awesomeness! I look forward to this journey, and sharing it with you!

 

@Atrytone, My favorite books are sci-fi/fantasy, but I'm reading a bunch of stuff, from the Princess Bride to Fight Club, and a few comics. I'm always looking for more titles!

Cool. I have similar interests. I'll have to peruse my shelves but just off the top of my head I'd recommend Dune if you haven't already read it.

I haven't had the chance yet, although I've got the audiobook version in MP3 format. Unfortunately, it's fairly overwrought, in terms of the production, so I think I'll actually read it.

Hey guys! Sorry I went radio silent for a bit. Things on this end have been crazy. I'm behind on food tracking, okay on workouts, and about a b/c average on reading and water. How are your challenges going??
