Elastigirl Enthusiastically Embraces A New Endeavor


Recommended Posts

Exciting Details on My challenge to be posted here one day. I guess Thursday is the day. I really enjoyed the laid back feel of last challenge. I gave myself one goal, and that was it. I still managed to eat healthy and track food a good portion of the time, did some mobility and stretching, took walks, finish Phase 1 of GMB Rings and even decided to study Algebra 2, even though I didn't have specific goals.  I love @NeverThatBored challenge and idea of basking in joy.  That's what this month will be about mainly. I will do the things I enjoy and share them with you all. Because I am a Ranger, and want to do all the things, really my most important goal is to get a good start on my day. 

 

Goal:   Have all other morning routine items completed and start my workout no later than 9:30.

1 point per complete 18 points and I win myself a pair of capri leggings.

 

Adding mini challenge so I can remember later:

Cooking: Try a new recipe

Strength: Farmer's carry across the yard and back , done 2 x this week

Climbing: Complete one hilly ruck

Combat: sledgehammer workout

Didn't really have the mental oomph to do a challenge, but I have stuff to share so I figured I would start my new challenge. Pretty much just like at the last one and that's what this one will be.

 

On Saturday we went Geocaching. It was so pretty. The location is where the old Twin Peaks was filmed (not sure about the new one). Usually I'm not excited about the loot in the cache, but this time we found something cool. An emblem patch for Galaxy Quest! Made my nerd heart happy

Since this week is zero week, and I am in between phases for GMB, I decided to take Monday and Tuesday as active rest days. Been doing a ton of yard work. My muscles think I should go back to working out, as that was easier.:lol: Did a ton of weeding yesterday. Today I planted some flowers in a container for our deck, as well as more weeding. Tomorrow hubby is tilling the veggie garden, and then I will plant the veggies I bought.

 

 

Since I've enjoyed @suzyQlou garden pictures so much, I decided to post some of my own.large.WP_20170523_13_38_37_Pro.jpg.580299a85f99451b7a0084e51cd97fc2.jpglarge.WP_20170523_13_38_19_Pro.jpg.6202c40051d558b583b1d8a702f9cebb.jpg

What beautiful azaleas and iris!  And they bloom together...which makes it even better.  You can bet I'm hoping for even more garden pix as the challenge continues.

This is so true! It's just darn exhausting to do the yard work.

 

Thanks for sharing garden photos! Flowers make me happy. :)

No, I'm currently trying to get my challenge up. Worked out what I need to focus on (cutting back on goals), but don't have a scoring system yet, and need to get the boys in the shower now. Just as I think I can sit down, I need to get up :P The usual.

Picture of my rhododendron in front of my house. The brown patch you see in front is where the veggie garden will be. Did I mention that when hubby went to go pick up the rototiller, the rental place said all their tillers were broken, and by the time he got to the next place they were closed? That was Wednesday, Thursday and tonight we were busy. But he was picking one up on the way home, and he plans to till tomorrow. So maybe, finally.. I bought some plants, and planned where to plant them. Tomorrow, hopefully, finally.large.WP_20170525_15_47_54_Pro.jpg.942240205286995b86c3b683350ffb5d.jpg

I like your goal. Summer can get crazy so simplifying might be the best way to enjoy it.

 

But enough about enjoying things....it's time for a little suffering:

It's live!

 

Thanks, I rolled my die and selected a pose

My local library has a garden tool lending section, which I thought was fantastic. It might be worth checking out yours too.
