Lou_be_Lou Posted August 23, 2016 Report Share Posted August 23, 2016 And I'm back! Late for the challenge, but I'm here. And that is the important thing. Life got complicated and busy and I've not been here for a while....... I'm not going to make this a massively complicated challenge - and I'm allowed some wriggle room. After being complicated and busy, I then ended up feeling quite bleugh - tired and not right and a bit post viral (of course after being crazy busy I got sick, cause thats how it works) and generally faded. Not how I like to be. So I've tried to remember to do stuff that makes me feel good, and I've started cleaning up my diet , and all of this has helped. Feels like I'm heading in the right direction...... Goals: 1) MOVE - ideally 6 days a week, the big movements are a selection of martial arts (jujitsu and kickboxing), running, biking and yoga. The little movements are going to be back care exercises, feet care exercises, and stretches (focussing on shoulders, hips and lower back rotation). Monday is most likely to be my don't move much day, aka rest day. 2) Play that bass - ideally 7 days a week, but 6 or 5 is ok, less than that and I never thrive...... Who knew music was addictive? 3) Look after me - if I need more rest, take it. Block out time for baking (I do better on home made gf bread, gf crispbreads and my own muesli, so make them!) and cooking (having a pot of something in the fridge for quick meals works for me). 4) Play time - two strands to this, carving out a good amount of time to spend with my lovely man (who I thought I had an abbreviation for, but it didn't look right here, possibly HP cause he'll hate that almost as much as the bailed from abbreviation), and cat therapy - cause that makes both me and them happy. Walks with the cats definitely come under play time rather than movement, cause yes I'm not sitting down during it, but its on the leisurely side of vertical. Bonus: my next kickboxing grading is approaching (I don't have a date, and the coach is much keener than I am for me to do it, I suspect that she'll win, so I need to get my head around this) and it involves a couple of my own combinations and a 10 opponent kata that I need to work out. Each week I'm planning on sorting out 2 opponent worths of kata. They don't have to be perfect, they just need to be a starting point for further tweaking. They also have to be simple as I suspect I'll have to do the kata at least 20 times in the grading. Knew there were reasons for putting this off........ Phew. Lets do this thing. 4 Quote NF challenges: March 2018 , 12 , 11 , 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Link to comment
