Casbin - trying another angle (5th challenge?)

Hi again,

 

I had initially planned to set this up yesterday and start on Sunday for a change but somehow I forgot.

Big surprise this is not exactly a perfect start but it will be getting better.

 

Last Challenge wasn't too great but I'm getting there.

 

For my overall goals:

  I want to work my way up to 80kg

  run a 10k in <1h

  catch up with my Paperwork and apply for a new job.

 

For this Challenge I will:

 

   eat 5 meals a day                            5 Points (a fruit or snack will be sufficient)

   drink less then 7 coffee/day            3 Points

   keep a footlog every day                 1 Point

   attend fitnessclass 2/week               2 Points

   do 1 Zombies 5k day/week               3 Points

   Go for a walk every day                   7 Points

   10 min. selfcare a day (anything)     3 Points

 

This is practically ´what I attempted last month but on a smaller scale.

To pass a topic I will need at least 50%, 75% will  unlock loot (to be determined) and escalation for the next Challenge.

 

Well, I think that should cover it for now.

I hope you are off for a good start

Hey man

 

Good that you've thought about your overall goals as well as the short-term ones, these all sound sensible and achievable. Hope it's going well so far.

 

Thanks, I just wouldn't get anywhere without a kind of inspiration what it's good for.

 There were some little bumps on the road due to bad planning but it's getting better with every hour.

I have a habit of biting off more than I can chew with my challenges, it's good you've been able to scale yourself back. I'm looking forward to watching you succeed this challenge! :)

 

Thanks, that's exactly what happened to me with my Challenges so far, I kind of hope that it's gonna be a bit better with the academie as a reference.

And I will be working on the success part ;)

This feels like a good start, I will give myself a couple of hours to wrap my head around it and come back to you for a summary.

 

I hope you can enjoy the waether just as much as I do

*sigh*

I really fell off the wagon this time around.

 

Eating habits went back to default (2 meals of what ever is handy).

I think coffee was ok for the most part.

Fitness, that worked just fine, Fitnessclass is back (but I will need some more time to the extra day) AND I went for my 5k training every weekend.

Also realised that my eating choices got considerably better, another win.

 

Well then, I'll be off to prepare the next attempt by sunday.

 

Regards

Casbin

What is the difference between 5 meals and 2 meals... is it just that you can't eat enough in one sitting?

 

Hope you get your diet in shape, it sounds like you are making progress.

I have conditions that affect my social awareness.  If I am rude, tell me what I could do better.

Hey,

 

thanks for stopping by (and making me realise that I utterly forgot about my signature).

 

The basic idea was to get me to eat regularly rather then whenever I got hungry enough to actually realise it.

Another side was that I just can't make myself eat more then abit over a thousand calories in one sitting but I burried that idea for a while until I manage to enjoy the eating and process more and get back to it eventually instead of forcing myself through a grind over and over.

 

I did make progress but it is slowly getting more fun at the moment.

 

Regards

Casbin (I'll be off and work on that signature for a bit)
