CakeBanisher Posted April 6, 2016 Report Share Posted April 6, 2016 I’m back for more! I’m posting a couple days late, I know…but I have been doing the challenge. Last challenge was good for me, so I’m excited to be continuing on in this one Brief background on me: I’m finishing up my undergraduate degrees (violin performance and psychology, minors in human biology and math). I had a lot of injuries from music in high school, and though college, which had me paranoid about my body. I got super weak and super overweight (obese, in fact), and I am now trying to get myself back together from that. I’ve got a lot of chronic pain I’m trying to manage, and getting in better shape and losing weight is probably the most important thing I can do. Also, I’ll be cosplaying for the first time later this year, and I want to be a bit more comfortable in my body by then Goal 1: 30 Days of Yoga Grading: finish/very close = A This is a continuation of last challenge. I really enjoy yoga, and I think it helps with some of my chronic pain, but I don’t quite have it established as a habit yet. So, I’m doing another challenge of including yoga I’m using this playlist, I find it helps me to have some guidance. I’m allowing the occasional missed day due to unforeseen circumstances, but the idea is I’d like to try and get through the whole playlist without missing a day. I did day 4 Sunday, and finished day 6 yesterday (doing 7 when I get home tonight) Goal 2: Calories. Grading: grade each week, final grade is the average This isn’t an ideal goal. But I need to lose weight, and I need to do something to sort of get me into gear. I had success with tracking calories before, so hopefully this will serve to sort of get me into the right mindset. I’m setting a loose goal of about 1400 in a day, but if I have the occasional day that’s off from that, I’m okay with it. I also might alter that number depending on how I feel. We’ll see. Goal 3: Tracking System Grading: not sure - suggestions welcome This includes developing and using a tracking system for everything. This is maybe a slightly convoluted goal, but I need to do it. I’ve tried various things before, but everything is scattered across multiple notebooks and google docs. I need to find a way to have everything consolidated, and work out a system of recording stuff. “Stuff” includes everything I eat, all yoga/physical activity, general notes about things, etc. This goal isn’t just about developing a system, it’s also about using it SMILEY Life goal: Morning and Evening routines Grading: by week, average at end Basically, establish and stick to a routine morning and night. This includes the usual “brush teeth, floss, etc.” as well as weirder things like “brush my hair.” I may also work some stretching into my routines as things get more established. So, those are my goals this challenge! I’m looking forward to it! 1 Quote One day, your heart will stop beating, and none of your fears will matter.
