  • 4 workouts per week. 2 of those need to be focused strength workouts, either bodyweight or weights.

  • Meditate every day.

 

Side Quests:

I'll go back in my previous challenge thread and find everyone who expressed interest in the flexibility thing before next week.

Half my job is NOT saying "let me google that for you," btw.

Btw, I did a terrible job of following people back last month. I will try to do better this month. :) 

Me also. I did a great job liking everything (EVER), but posted so rarely... And your threads are so much fun that I definitely want to become an active participant in the wackiness rather than a stalker an observer.

Oh - I forgot to mention that I am here indefinitely

 

Also Witcher looks pretty cool. I'm intrigued.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL GOAL. ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR. HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH SUCH A SPLENDID IDEA????

 

Are you still Kickboxing?

It's (Witcher 3, the current one) really fun. It's huge. I had to take a break in the middle after seeing that a complete playthrough can take 100 hours, but I'm back in deep. It's much less linear than Assassin's Creed (to pick one random example, no reason) with a ton of side quests. The combat is fun; there's dodging and rolling and different strikes and spells you can cast on the fly in the middle of a fight.

 

I just totally ditched the main quest line to go collect a cool set of weapons and armor and level it all the way up before I hit the final missions.

Yep! Been off for two weeks for the holidays, but back at it this week. Tomorrow I may go to a kettlebell class instead just because of scheduling, but I've stuck with kickboxing quite regularly, at least once a week for months now. It's going to be brutal coming back after a break, but at least I've been doing well about running to keep my stamina up.

One of those rare moments when I find I'm speechless at a sex joke.

 

I feel like I've been stalking ... all of you ... today there's been so much forum activity. I've gotten no work done. :) I'll just leave you with this.

Haha

 

This is me, right @tourennatrix? Sparkles!

Week 0 midpoint! (Although I'm going to do the Mon-Sun challenge schedule again just because it makes sense to my brain and how I track stuff.)

 

Today:

  • After coffee, switch on browser blocker to keep me off Facebook and NF all goddamn day like I spent yesterday
  • Take a meditation break
  • Therapist
  • KETTLEBELL CLASS after work. These are always tough but I leave feeling like I DID A THING.

Checked my weight yesterday and it's good -- no ill aftereffects of all those holiday meals and desserts, which is encouraging and helps me realize I can (sensibly) indulge myself sometimes and not lose momentum.

 

INSPIRADO: Iggy Pop. "Search and Destroy" is really really making me want to jump up and kick over my computer and rip off my shirt and hit stuff and maybe pogo for a while.

 

... I won't do that. This is a library.

ETA: Yesterday I asked a very prominent person in my field if he'd write the foreword to my new book. Hold a good thought.

Please Pogo around the library. The students will thank you - trust me.

I might be sipping my coffee more slowly so I can put off the inevitable Get To Work moment.

...maybe keep my shirt on though

Thanks, boss. I think he'll say yes, but sending those emails are always an impostor-syndrome-inducing moment.

I love you guys. Thank you for encouraging me to pogo shirtless in my workplace. I can sleep on your sofas when I get fired, right?

 

Adding to my challenge: RECORD A DAMN SET OF MEASUREMENTS. I should be adding this to every challenge, because a) for some reason I hate doing it and b ) I would get Academy XP for it.
