Boring backstory

Spoiler

I found NF in the summer of 2014.  I was very overweight and found most day to day tasks difficult.  I spent the rest of 2014 going back it time as a Time Lord companion, losing 80 pounds along the way. I never quite made it back all the way to my goal but the point of the journey was to find the real me and take my life back.  Little did I know at the time that I was really Wonder Woman, under a spell that turned me into an ogre.  I’m still in the process of breaking the spell by defeating villains that I confront on my new journey.  Since then I’ve gotten stronger and more active.  I started by just walking 1 mile a day and have since run a 5K, taken up rucking, lifting, and Shovelglove and just plain old trying to be as awesome as possible.  

 

 

I have been recycling the same goals for the past several challenges, changing my focus each time on a different aspect.  But really what it comes down to is all of my goals are related and tied to each other.  My food choices fuel my workouts, my workouts take time that I used to spend on other necessities and free time, the less efficient I am in getting my To Do's done takes away time from leisure, which ends up costing me sleep so I can unwind, and the lack of sleep affects my food choices and my workouts.  This challenge I am trying to focus on all these aspects and balance everything in such a way that I can meet my goals and live my life at the same time.  I am hoping that finding a way to balance these will help ensure more win and less suck.  It's getting closer to my summer races and events so I want to try and lock down the foundation so I can focus on training for those events.   

 

Main Over-arching Goal: My goal is still to lose bodyfat and gain strength.  I still haven't been to Onederland but my ultimate goal is somewhere over that rainbow. 

Main goal for this challenge: Make progress on fat loss and running time/endurance.  I don't care how much progress but I'm tired of maintaining. 

 

I had this intricate points system all worked out for this challenge to facilitate this balance and accentuate the ties between my goals but then I realized that every weekend this challenge I have trips and plans that have a high likelihood of derailing my goals.  So I simplified the points and will work around the weekends to mitigate the damage.  For this challenge Wonder Woman will be borrowing some web weaving skills from other heroes and using the lasso for defensive maneuvering.  I am hoping have a solid web during the week will be my safety net for the weekend.

The Woven Web

I'll be focusing on 6 habits this challenge that will work together to weave the web.  Each week will be scored based on percent of goal achieved and recorded on the chart below.  I'm not really expecting 100% on all of these goals but by tracking them using the web-like chart will be an easy way to track my success for the 33 days of the challenge and also allow me to quickly identify weak points.  It is unlikely that any of these goals can be 'made up' at a later date if I miss them so any misses just go down as misses and I'll just see how many there are.  I can track the number of successful days and shoot for as many as possible.  I am also hoping this chart helps me to turn any misses around quickly so that I can save the following day and not get stuck in a downward spiral.  

 

Goals

Eat Well (Macros) CON - Hit MFP macros every day*

Lift STR - Lift 3 times a week

Sleep DEX - Get 7 hours of sleep a day

Conditioning STA - 3 cardio days, most likely 2 runs and 1 ruck

Demolish Tasks WIS - Set 3 daily tasks and accomplish them each day.  This should incorporate FlyLady, personal tasks, school and scout tasks. 

Leisure CHA - Find time to do some leisure activity at least 5 days a week. (TV before bed on my own doesn't count as this is part of my routine, but setting time aside to watch something with LordShello or the kids counts or watching a movie, as do other quality time activities with them or self care things like pedicures.)

*Variance days may be scheduled in based on Winning the Weekend and this will be incorporated into the goal. 

 

 

Spoiler

I'm going to continue with batch cooking and weekly meal plans this challenge.  My snacking strategies from last challenge really worked when I used them so I'll print them and stick them on the fridge to help me remember to ask myself those questions before snacking.  

 

Winning the Weekend

Since there are pitfalls every weekend this challenge, I will be setting unique Weekend Protocols for each week's pitfall.  This will allow me a little wiggle room as far as workouts and diet and also force me to make plans to accomplish as much as possible and prepare for the pitfall in a sensible way.  Though I may not be able to get some workouts in, I will continue to score that goal with the same set goal as listed above; the food goals may be relaxed a bit.  

Weekend #1: May 6-8. Mother's Day Weekend.  I am travelling to my mom's for the weekend.  

Weekend #2: Girl's Weekend.  The boys will be off camping.  When it's just Peach and I we can get a little wild.  

Weekend #3: Mom's campout.  I will be camping with my son's boy scout troop.  

Weekend #4: Memorial Weekend.  Perhaps won't be a huge pitfall but I better make plans to ensure this. 

 

Side Quests

There are some other things I'd like to keep up with.  I'm not sure how they fit in the scoring system.  Maybe I'll make a reward system for these...  

For the daily tasks I still have a tendency to put off some things.  I started the 3 daily tasks as part of the PVP for last challenge but when I am thinking about what to do each day, I will forget about big tasks that need to get done and then I'll remember them later and they never make it into the rotation.  So I'm making a list.  Ideally, the Demolish goal will incorporate these tasks but in the event that they don't they will be documented here and I'll get some kind of bonus point for getting these done.  I also have some specific rucking goals I'd like to get to.  

Ruck WOD

Ruck with coupon

Long Ruck

KonMari

Get passport paperwork done.  

Student Loan paperwork

Write Final

Export class data for Canvas transition

backup laptop and send it for repairs

 

 

Wonder Woman is taking a break from villain PVP's.  I feel like this is already a lot to balance and there isn't really any room to make additional goals.  Plus I've signed up as a villain in Rurik's challenge and I'll have to battle for Pancake Glory in the Doodlie PVP.  The Villain Face-off's will resume at a later date....  In the meantime, villains are scheming....
