suzyQlou Posted May 26, 2017 Report Share Posted May 26, 2017 I figure I'll fix my sore knees and ankles this challenge the easy way - with a little magic. Ok, so maybe it won't be that easy. My knowledge about spells is way too spotty. Even researching a challenge page shows me that Reparo only works on objects, not people. Probably need some Episkey or Ferula, but I'm thinking it's dangerous to self-diagnose spells with google. I'm liable to blow stuff up! So, human goals this time around: 1. Do the stupid, boring physical therapy exercises EVERY DAY. 2. Keep weighing less to put less pressure on those joints. 3. Do not give up on exercise outside of boring therapy stuff. 1. Do the stupid, boring physical therapy exercises EVERY DAY. This one is pretty self explanatory. There's a handy dandy app my PT uses. It lists 30 minutes of exercises I need to do. I need to do them every day! Form is super-important. I need to pay attention to which muscles are supposed to be working, and make sure I'm making adjustments to target them. 2. Keep weighing less to put less pressure on those joints. I'm going to carry over two of my helpful weight loss goals from last challenge: 2a. Roll the dice tracking. I will roll a four-sided die every day. If I roll a "one" I will track food in mfp. Otherwise, I'll continue jotting it down less formally on paper. 2b. Restaurant restraint. This just means extra-special thinking about eating when I eat outside of home. New this time...eat BEFORE going to any restaurant that will have zero healthy options. 3. Do not give up on exercise outside of boring therapy stuff. It's hard to fit the extra PT into my daily routine, but I CANNOT use my regular workout time to do that. I need to continue three days each of cardio and strength per week. Also, this challenge, I am excited to take part in the Miserable Yoga pvp. If you haven't checked it out yet DO IT. Misery loves company. My first pose will be a supported headstand. You have no idea how giddy I am to get started. I am hoping to get my whole family involved, and it is going to be extremely easy to look miserable with this first pose! 4 Quote suzyQlou * Ranger Old Challenges: #1(2015) * #2 * #3(push ups) * #4 * #5(food) * #6 * #7(2016)* #8(nerdiversary) * #9 * 10(animal) * Battle Log * 11(2017) * 12(garden) * 13 * 14(biking) * 15 * 16 * 17 * 18 * 19(2018) * 20(2019) * 21 Link to comment
