I am not looking to hit numbers for this challenge, because I think that would set me up to fail. Just to get in the habit of tracking. Once I have data for the month, I will look at adjusting my diet to hit the numbers.

Get obsessed with consistency in the actions that feed the goal. Getting obsessed with the goal won't work and neither does having moderate goals. It's like thinking about laying down perfect brick after perfect brick rather than going nuts over when you'll see a building emerge.

Omg.    One of my favorites as a kid.    And also ... if I think back and reflect now, what set me up to love anime in general.   So many feels in The Last Unicorn!     Great goals you have here.  I really like the plan of attack.

 

Following along for greatness!

I guess you are the right girl to ask about this, but is there any resource you'd recommend to start learning to use watercolors? and how do I chose a set of them/beginner brushes and things? I seriouly doubt the classic kid sets are any good...

I'm just getting started myself. :D

 

A friend of mine who helped me get started with this, and sells her art for a living uses Artist's Loft watercolors from Michael's. They're really inexpensive for getting started & experimenting to find out if you like watercolors. So when I started, I picked up a set of those and some of their brushes. I'd like to try their watercolor paper as well, but haven't gotten around to it.

 

As far learning, hit up youtube, and search for "how to watercolor ____ " (insert the subject you're interested in there). You should find a lot of different ways & styles, then follow the artists/channels whose style you love.

 

For getting started, I'd really recommend a channel called "The Mind of Watercolor":

 

Hope this helps!

So I totally forgot that the challenge started on the 8th. :flustered:

 

So, here we are... Thursday of W1.

 

Recap flashback

HS5Cmfl.jpg?2

 

W1:

Quest #1:

1/3 - Work sets 63lbs*3*5 last night, mostly just to get moving again after damn allergies knocked me for a loop last week. Why do all the trees have to bloom at the same time?

 

Quest #2:

0/3

 

Quest #3:

4/7 - Learning some things from the data, mostly that I eat too much sweets & fats & not enough protein :P

 

LUYL #1:

4/7 - Helps when I do it, doesn't when I don't. Funny thing, that.

 

LUYL #2: 

0/7 - Need to stop using my allergies an excuse to not do this. My family needs me to stay on top of this so we have enough dishes to cook with.

 

LUYL #3:

1/3 - Lesson on Tuesday, good stuff. Taking it a bit easy on my voice while my allergies balance themselves out.

Week 1 Recap, because I've been terrible about posting. Challenge started really rough, thanks to allergies, but I think week 2 is going much better.

 

Quest #1 - Train to face the Red Bull: 1/3

Missed one because of allergies, skipped the second one to let the kids stay up late to watch Inside Out which we got for Eldest Daughter for her 5th birthday.

(My favorite character)

 

Quest #2 - Escape from Mommy Fortuna: 1/3

Not a total fail, but need to get better. My hip flexors will thank me, after complaining loudly.

 

Quest #3 - Eat a taco: 6/7

Tracking is going really well, getting some good data about adjustments to make to my diet. Namely, more protein and less fat.

 

LUYL #1 - Travel on: 4/5

Hitting my days, but also doing it in the morning instead of at night. It would probably help to do this at night to get a better jump on my day.

 

LUYL #2 - Sparkle & Shine: ?/7 - Not sure, I'm pretty sure I hit a couple days last week, but I didn't track it

More tracking/might adjust this goal. Hubby and I realized that we were falling into patterns of expectations that don't match what we're good at, so we're switching who does the bulk of the inside & outside work. Which means I've spent my sink time clearing blackberries out of the yard. I think that should count for something...

 

LUYL #3 - Talk to the butterfly: 1/3

Didn't do anything aside from the lesson. Have to figure out how/when to make time for practice. Has to be after the kids are in bed, otherwise I have to fight for the piano.

 

Averages out to about 50%, so I'll need to pick up the pace in week 2.
