Simply put, my goal right now is to get strong. I am following Pavel's Simple and Sinister workout, and working toward the simple goal. I will also be working on increasing my pull up numbers. Add in some ab work, lots of walking, a bit of ring play, some rucking, geocaching, and a bit of flexibility work, and  you have a happy Ranger bear.

Goal 1

 

Track Food 6 days a week (this is pretty much a habit now. Just listing it here for accountability) For the next several challenges I will be eating at maintenance. I will all pay attention to my body, and if I am hungrier I will eat more, and not hungry eat less. I will track weight and measurements to help me determine if I am on track.

 

Track water 8 glasses of water( or decaf/herbal tea) a day during the week (weekends excluded, I just want to make it a habit during the week. I’ll work on weekends next challenge)This is a hard one for me, and if I succeed I will get a prize. Not sure yet what the prize is.

Goal 2:

 

5 Turkish Get Ups (per side) with a 35 lb. kettlebell

 

100 swings with a 35 lb bell in 5 minutes

 

Setting a performance goal is tricky. Setting a specific goal gives me something to shoot for, but it is sometimes hard to predict how long it may take. So, plan is, I will do the work to get me to the goal, and hopefully I will reach it by the end of April. If not, well then, I will work on it next month too.

Goal 3

 

Try something new. It can be a food or an activity, just something to remind me that life is an adventure, and it is good to get out of  routines once in a while

Love the bear quote! :D

I typed in "Be strong like a bear' and that is the quote that  it came up with. It seemed very fitting for my theme.

Oooooooooooh, bears!

 

Also, how are you liking Desiring God? I finished reading it fairly recently and appreciated the way it changed my perspective on lots of parts of my relationship with the Big Guy.

 

Go be strong!

It is actually my second time reading the book. I read it several years ago, and it really changed my perspective. Since then, I am much more focused on living a joy filled Christian life. I'm only on book 1, but even just that far I am blown away remembering how awesome God is.

Thanks. I totally forgot about it when planning my challenge, but in April the live-action movie of Jungle Book premieres. I am so excited . Bill Murray is the voice of Ballou, which is amazing.

Subbing for awesome rucking and possible geocaching!  I've never heard of these Turkish getups before

Thanks. Turkish Get ups are amazing. Went geocaching this weekend in a new place for us. Really cool, because it was in the woods, but right near a small airport. So you are out in the middle of the quiet woods, and you hear a plane flying overhead, and you look up and it is a World War II plane. Super fun for me, since I think planes are cool. We didn't get many caches, because we parked way far away from most of the caches, but we did get a nice hike in.

Really really love your list of adventure goals!

Thanks. I find having a list works well for me. Instead of just going  to Facebook when I have some spare time, I see if I can do something toward my adventure goals

That's absolutely brilliant; the perfect method for applying my concept for visualizing my Level 50 and applying it through daily progress toward that goal.

 

Now I need to make a list!  :P
