sassyfrassy Posted June 8, 2016 Report Share Posted June 8, 2016 Andu-falah-dor! Let Balance Be Restored! I'm making a slow transition back into Nerd Fitness because I have been away too long. And it is showing. My eating has gotten terrible. My exercises have become non-existent. Everything is just out of a good, healthy balance. I need to fix this. I want to fix this. I've come back to the Druids for a number of reasons, but the most important one is taking the time to re-learn this balance. Find your inner peace, begin and continue the healing process, and build up a strength both physically and mentally. Quest One // Wild Mushroom Food tracking. I keep forgetting how important this is. I always start recording everything, and then stop. "It's so tedious." "This takes too much time." "I don't have time for this." While it may appear tedious, it's useful. It helps. It does take time, but that is what this about; taking your time. Results are not overnight. You do have time for this. You always had time for this. Now do your best to make it happen. This quest won't include exact numbers. I will only be recording and tracking my food. I want to see what I eat in a day and how much I eat. You really don't realize how much (or how little) you eat when you're not paying attention. This is pretty Pass/Fail. I have to track all food/meals for the four weeks. Quest Two // Moment of Clarity A lot of folks are talking about being mindful, taking time to remember the good things, and reflecting on what you're thankful for. I need to do this more than I'm doing now. I do my best to always keep in mind the positive things in my life. Especially if some dark clouds are lurking. I need to take a moment to write away worry when I feel it becoming too overwhelming. There are no specifics in which type of outlet I use, but I should be taking at least 5-10 minutes a day to write down something. Good, bad, random; write it down. Another Pass/Fail. Keeping mental health up and running is just as important as physical health! Quest Three // Celestial Alignment To round out the above, I want to do 5-10 minutes of movement a day. I plan on having some sort of step counter on my person so that, if I'm doing laundry, cleaning, or running errands, I can keep track of my time. Pass/Fail. I'm giving myself Pass/Fail rather than grades for on main reason: personal accountability. I believe I can sometimes be the time of person who sees that I will still give myself credit if I slack on something. Not all the time, but sometimes. Doing that will not help me get back on my journey to success. I'm really looking forward to this challenge, and I will be doing whatever I can to ensure that I stick with it even during times of stress, worry, or any other thing that may come my way. 4 Quote Link to comment
