Anathema Posted October 31, 2016 Report Share Posted October 31, 2016 Slight irony alert due to joining a day late, but "Slight Irony Alert" might be the road sign for my life. Except actually I think my road sign is the fantastic one, below, which I spotted on a run some time ago. Anyway, many of my prior challenges fell apart due to my tendency toward overindulgence of the non-good kind. Me, booze, and goals don't seem to be a good mix. So, here's the goals for this Challenge. Goal 1: Stay sober. I'm on Day 20 so far, goal is to keep the streak going. One day at a time and all that, but I'd really like to make this a thing. Goal 2: 500 calorie per day deficit. I can do this. I've done it before, just need to stay mindful. Goal 3: Something physical each day. One of those days can be my 10,000 steps but everything else needs to be either strength workout or proper cardio. I'd say a run, but have some minor foot pain, so if that gets worse (no frakking idea what I did to myself, maybe just being at a trade show last week and walking tons and tons on concrete floors in non-supportive shoes? Not heels cuz I'm not totally insane, but not properly cushioned either.) Bonus goal: Work on eliminating simple carbs. Cut out sugar entirely, cut back on flour. Not gonna say eliminate it because I think that's setting too high a bar for me right now, but be mindful about minimizing. Life goal: Minimize personal screen time at work. I tend to get into reading the news or checking Facebook at work, which is allowed, but then I spend too much time and end up having to work late to make up for it. I can have 5 minutes per hour, no more. 3 Quote Level 9 * Eladrin Scout Clan: Mek'het * Covenant: Invictus "An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered.
