Keldream Nebula Posted April 3, 2016 Report Share Posted April 3, 2016 Whew! Finally making myself take the time to sit down and plan out my goals. This is my second (and a half) challenge, and I learned a lot trying to do the last one. I was terrible at posting and the goals I had written down didn't end up being practical, or were too much. But instead of changing them, I just veered off on my own course without having that written confirmation of what I wanted to accomplish...not the best strategy for me. I do better having a plan, even if its very general. I'm sort of at a weird point where we are in April, classes finish in May and then I graduate . Because that messes with my mentality of how much I can accomplish or what I should start doing that is new, I am going to try very hard through this challenge to really set up my goals for success so that when it gets down to crunch time of the end of the year I am not even more stressed out by trying to figure out how to achieve some sort of goal that I haven't defined. That being said, I'm going to list a whole bunch of goals, some are just to be kept in the back of my mind and others I need to do on a daily basis. Definite possibility of them changing in the next couple of weeks as I start figuring out how much is too much. FOOD: --Regular Breakfast (caramelized onion meatballs, sweet potatoes and eggs) --1 coffe in the morning (only if I want it, if it doesn't sound good, don't make it. I only drink it because it tastes good, so why drink it if I don't really want it? So silly sometimes.) --Pick ONE MEAL A WEEK to make. As in, one recipe that will provide me with food for one meal everyday of the week. Hopefully a new dish to try, but it doesn't have to be. Also best if it includes a vegetable...but if I can get enough food easily, then I can focus on vegetables. --Drink enough water every day. At least 8 glasses to start out with so that I'm in the habit. SUGAR: --1 sugar snack/day --1 sugar drink/day --Bonus: only 1 of those/day (might need a reward system for this...) EXERCISE: --Meet daily workout goal: currently finishing up the Hero's Journey from Darebee (~10 days left) --Practice my basic martial arts techniques 2x a week so I don't feel like a loser when I go back to the Dojang in the summer LIFE: (these are temporary, I need to think about them more) --USE MY PLANNER (no homework left behind!) --Use Workout & Food Log! OTHER: --2x a week anti-study-stretching (hips, chest, neck, shoulders; everything that holds stress and gets beat up by studying all the time and poor posture) --Handstands: 2x a week handstand practice (to start out with); regularly be able to hold a handstand for a few seconds by the end of the month --30 push-ups (currently 20 is about my regular max, and I really want to improve that, so I'm starting with 30) --"Wall climbs": I can't remember what these are called. Walking your feet up the wall and hands closer, a really good back/shoulder work and I need that. (2x a week?) --Pick one thing to clean/make a junk box for in my room (4x a week) --Pro/con list of the grad schools I'm waiting to hear back from WANTS: --Duolingo Daily --Meditation --Reading for pleasure --Dulcimer (my sister got me one for christmas because my harps are at home and I always find music relaxing...this one really needs to become a regular thing, but I'm not sure how yet). --weight-trainign (think this might wait until I'm home for the summer because we have an exercise room, and right now with school I'm not likely to find a gym and make myself go regularly. Keep with the more assassin-feel for now and add in weights later) --1$ in a jar/day Welllll.....That's a long list. I just need that visual to try and track for a week/two to see what works and what doesn't and then I can refine the list. Sorry for the rather long, boring post, but hopefully it'll get me set up for a good challenge Beast Mode: Rebooted! 1 Quote Jedi Quest (Nov 2016): Current Challenge ~Even the simplest of tasks can help one become a Jedi.
