Jarric becomes Mr Positivity

So I totally dropped off the boards for the end of this challenge. Nothing bad, just got distracted with Christmas and whatnot and I'm only just now making time to wrap this bad boy up. Here's what I did over the end of the challenge:

  • Christmas Day was much fun, and included much food and much beer. Got some lovely presents and generally had a nice, chilled time.
  • Boxing day I went out for a run in the morning, then more eating/drinking/chilling.
  • Tue W4D2 - More chilling, and went out to see Passengers. Really good film, but quite dark and chilling in places.
  • Wed W4D3 - Drove home and went out in the evening for a friend's birthday meal.
  • Thu W4D4 - Went and played snooker in the day, then Rogue One in the evening! Great film, really enjoyed it, though I seemed to be less effected by the end than the people around me.
  • Fri W4D5 - Went Bouldering, then did loads of domestic rangering to try and recover the house from Christmas.
  • New year's eve - Parkrun in the morning. Meant to go to the gym later (having missed my sessions all damn week!), but I failed to plan and didn't realise everywhere was shutting at about 1pm! Stayed in for the evening and brought in the new year with a bottle of wine, loads of takeaway pizza, plenty of beer and series 1 of A Touch of Frost.
  • New year's day - had Christmas dinner with my family (we had spent actual Christmas with Mrs family this year). Other than that a lazy day.

 

I'll tot up all my points in a separate post - I think I've probably failed all of my goals but I'll double check anyway.

Don't say "I don't have enough time", say instead "that's not a priority right now" and see how that makes you feel.

Mr Positivity - 15XP

What? Say and record positive things, to help me keep a positive mindset.

Why? Because I want to be a more positive person.

How? Record something positive in my journal every day, and report it on here. It can be anything; something about myself, something good about my day, something I'm thankful for etc.

 

 

Mr Strong - 15XP

What? Continue getting in the gym.

Why? Because it makes me feel good about myself, and because I want to get stronger.

How? Get to the gym 3 x per week, continuing starting strength. No Excuses despite Christmas and all that jazz. This takes precedence over all other exercise.

 

 

Mr Sleepy - 15XP

What? Get some more sleep!

Why? Because I need it, for body and mind, or I feel dreadful.

How? Get to bed each night by 10:30, or within 45 minutes of getting home, whichever the latter

 

 

Mr Writer - 10XP

What? Keep up with my Bullet Journal

Why? Because I'm liking it as a way to keep track of challenges, and I'm hoping that as I get used to it it will actually make me more productive.

How? i. Journal every day. ii. Report on here if I fail to complete any to-dos. iii. Complete all month to-dos at some point.

 

Mr Positivity - 17/28 - This went pretty well up until Christmas week, and then I was having such a good time I didn't feel a need to do it. Which isn't really the point, but I won't beat myself up too much about it. I feel it's a good thing to keep doing though, so this will be coming back next challenge in some form. 0XP awarded.

 

Mr Strong - 8/12 - Missed one session early on in the challenge, and then all 3 on Christmas week. This is mostly down to poor planning on my part, and I'm not happy about it. Need to be more mindful of this and plan my workouts better for the future. 0XP awarded.

 

Mr Sleepy - 14/28 - It might have actually been higher than this, but I failed to track it Christmas week, so another fail here. 0XP awarded.

 

Mr Writer - 28/28 - Perfect! Mostly by virtue of the fact that I allowed points for writing about the days, not on the days, but I'll take it. I did not however report failures of to-dos on here, or complete all of my monthly to-dos. Hopefully this will get more useful as I get more used to checking it and abiding by it. For now 5XP awarded.

 

Final Thoughts - 5XP for an entire challenge must surely be my worst one yet! Nonetheless, I don't feel like I've actually gone backwards this month, which over Christmas feels like an achievement in itself. Now I'm off to put together a 2017 roadmap, and then finally get round to setting up my new challenge!
