A Challenge, you say? (Handstands, Running, #WednesdayBridgeClub, Japanese...)


Recommended Posts

Okay, I'll be out of town, living it up in NYC for Halloween on October 30, so I should line up  my 4 Week Challenge now.

It's pretty straight forward.

I am starting Week 3 of the Zombie Run 5K program, and my goal is to continue that 3 workouts a week.

I am also starting the Handstand course from Nerd Fitness, I've not had time to look it over but I intend to do Handstand work on my non-running days.

Also I am headed to Japan in EXACTLY 2 MONTHS!  So I am not reading any more books, or listening to anymore podcasts.  Only my Japanese lessons so Ican get back to functional speaking (I took it in college, I was alright speaking, but never learned much kanji).  I have little Japanese learning games I play on my phone rather than Facebook, etc.  I can look at Facebook too, but I'd prefer after a round of Japanese quizzes.


On top of this I want to keep meal prepping, and pill prepping (I feel SO OLD).  I have new medications for anemia and asthma, I might lay off the iron pills a bit because they made me feel ick last night, and just iron-up my food (hello lentils, kale, etc), but I am now the little organized lady with an am/pm pill box with my meds and vitamins all laid out... and it's wonderfully convenient!
I prep wonderful looking meals, but often when it's time to eat them I have no appetite... I need to figure out why this is, and what I can do about it.  So working on light, clean food for lunches.

I also started something I've been sharing with people from Camp nerdFitness, but should throw out to everyone!  I've made up a game called "#WednesdayBridgeClub, which is just posting pictures of ourselves in backbends on social media. On Wednesdays. For fun!  Everyone's invited to join.


Okay, Oct 30, bring it.

Fun challenge! Do you eat meat? Because beef is one of the best  sources of iron. Liver is even better.

I don't, not really. And by that I mean ever.
I might try some when in Japan, because I'll try anything once, but for the most part I am a vegetarian that has no interest in meat.  No stigma attached, just none for me, thanks.
I appreciate the suggestions though!
