One Tiny Change: Tanktimus Barely Adjusts His Goals


Recommended Posts

 

For the end of the year, I’m not going to change much.

 

Strength: 8 lift days. Pretty straightforward here. I will do Bench and Squat on Mondays and Deadlift and OverHead Press on Wednesdays. This worked really well last challenge so I’m going to leave this unchanged.

 

Mobility: 6 NF Yoga workouts. I’ll do one session each of Water A and B, one sessions each of Fire A and B, and one Session of Star A and Yin. Last challenge I went from 8 yoga sessions to six to add two walking sessions, I’m happy with this balance.

 

Walking: I have great places to walk, so it’s not hard to get out and do. There will be six walking days, a 2 mile, 4 3 mile walks, and a 4 mile walk are the goals.

 

Domestic Rangering: Still the goal here to do laundry, clean bathroom and kitchen and mop and vacuum once per week.

 

Eating: I will cook paleo and only allow myself two variances per week. This seems to be working, the trick is not to use a variance to go crazy. I’m going to track calories on Mondays and Tuesdays. This is to warm up to tracking more regularly next year.

 

Here’s what I’ll use in the signature instead of progress bars.

Strength: 8 Lift Days

Mobility: 8 Yoga Days

Water A | Water B | Fire A | Fire B | Star A | Yin

 

Walking: 4 Walk Days

2 Miles | 3 Miles | 3 Miles | 3 Miles | 3 miles | 4 Miles

 

Domestic Rangering: Laundry, Mop, Vacuum, Bathroom, Kitchen 1x Week

LMVBK | LMVBK | LMVBK | LMVBK

 

Eating: Cook Paleo with only two variances per week

I miss the progress bars.

 

These are excellent goals, and feel very well-rounded.  These are the goals of someone who has his life under control.  I approve.

I miss the progress bars too. The wall of smiles isn't quite the same. I have most of my life under control, eating is the one big variable still holding me back, hence tracking on Monday and Tuesdays. That will ramp up into a bigger thing in 2017.

Another smart challenge. I  like how you are slowly adding in tracking.I think that with tracking 2 days, you are going to get a good feeling for where you  are on the mark and where you may need to tweak some things
