Shukar Still isn't Lion

Hey hey nerds, tis I Shukar, back from.... let's say the Crusades.

 

 

Life has been way too crazy for a while now, and it's starting to become apparent that some of that is my failure to impose order upon it. So I'm here to correct that and get myself back to somewhere I was a bit happier with my results, and then push past that into uncharted territory. 

 

Quick summary for those who don't know me, which may be a lot of you since I've been absent some time now. I'm a Scout, I'm super tall (though by no means the Almighty Tallest or anything), I'm a big Disney and general movies nerd, and I have an obnoxious tendency to run races on nowhere near enough training and still somehow finish feeling good if not happy with the time.

 

 

So, what goals are we looking at this challenge? Well....

 

 

 

Goal 1: Run through the desert!

 

This time, I'm starting with a fitness goal! Go for an average of 2 activities a week. It's far less than I have done in times long gone, but a good bit more than what I did during the last challenge (I've been really slacking on the running, shamefully). So nice, simple, get my butt out the door twice a week. Why do I say activities instead of runs? Because the weather here is still not conducive to evening runs, so if I don't get out in the morning that would screw my shot for the day, but I can pull off an evening Ruck just fine. So 2 a week, either way.

Goal 2: Scrounging up some Grub(s)

 

Mixing the two food goals from last challenge. Prep the meals (3/week prepped meals), and cook the dinners (3/week cook the dinners). It went well last challenge on this one, but I want to maintain it for another before I start pushing the numbers, because I've seen me and things can tend to blow up fast if I just keep pushing onward without giving the habits a chance to "set" first.

Goal 3:  Get in touch with the nerds again

 

I used to be in the habit of posting on my own threads here daily and posting regularly on other nerds threads. I have long since fallen out of that habit. Which is a pity because it only takes a few minutes a day to post on a thread updating what I did about my goals that day, and what's going on with me. So to succeed at this goal I'm gonna have to post 3 times a week, minimum, on my own thread and once a week on someone else's.

Bonus Goal 4!: Upside Down Lion

 

Changing things up again on the bonus goal, what's better than a lion? Well an upside down lion of course (for some reason)! I used to work on handstands semi-regularly and I'd like to get back to doing that, because being able to be upside down is kind of fun. So gonna start working this in again at least once a week into my daily routine.

 

So here I am, back for the second challenge in a row, some of the same goals, some new ones. Let's do this thing.

 

There you have it folks, a challenge. See you tomorrow for an update on how things are going so far.

Nightlight, Yay!

 

Koala, Appreciated, always good to have promise of future gifs. :)

 

Strickland, Rawr!

 

Short update before bed for today. Packed a lunch, cooked a dinner (and prep'd a bunch of meals for this week so that should be a good start on some goals). No run today, but planning one for the morning. No inversions or posting to speak of yet, but the challenge is young.

So, here we are on Tuesday, and I packed another lunch, cooked another dinner, and didn't make it up in time to go for a run. Still haven't gone on a posting spree, should do that tomorrow.

Well, it's now Friday, what happened the intervening days?

 

Wednesday I bought lunch, but ate leftovers for dinner. Thursday I had lunch paid for through work (though I avoided eating like a total asshole so that's always a bonus), and didn't end up eating dinner due to size and timing of lunch. Today I again bought lunch and had leftovers for dinner. 

 

As for exercise, none to speak of besides my daily squatting. I definitely need to do better about getting in workouts despite weird work schedules I've had so many of recently. I've also failed to do any posting yet besides in here.

 

Tomorrow is a new day, so I shall slumber in an attempt to seize it.

Let's change that to "eating like I lacked discipline" or something, being feeding yourself doesn't make you an asshole. Doing hurtful things, disregarding others, and weaving through traffic make an asshole. Treat yourself with kindness, even when you fall short of expectations. <3

 

That said, good job maintaining discipline. ;D
