nightlight Posted June 29, 2017 Report Share Posted June 29, 2017 nightlight is just here for the (G)a(I)nz(Fs) I've had many ups and downs lately. Not gonna try and dwell on it, or rehash too much of it, because living in the past is something old nightlight did. Though, relevant bits here: I competed in a Weightlifting meet in early June and went 6/6. No lifts were PRs, but they felt solid, and I even got smiles and claps out of my coach. I've been SLOOOOOOOWLY losing weight, but I think I'm hitting a little plateau I haven't worked out in 2 weeks (ish) because my back has been bothering me. Because my back has been bothering me, my anxiety has been at an all time high. Almost to a level where I've never seen it before. This challenge is going to be a challenge where I'm being kind to myself, and trying to make small progress towards bigger goals. Goal 1: Take care of my back by doing more movement throughout the day. My plan is on weekdays to do some movement breaks every few hours. I have alarms set to go off at 8a/10a/12p/2p to move. Doesn't have to be long or involved. Even less than 5 min. I just have to DO SOMETHING GOOD for my back. I will log this here. Weekends are up in the air, but I will have at least 3 movement breaks per day. Goal 2: Track food, hit calorie goals. This one is simple. Track my food intake. Try to stay at or under my calorie goals for the WEEK. I can go a little over on workout days, or a little under on non workout days. I'll track here: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/profile/needanightlight Goal 3: Get a hold of my anxiety Do a sleep meditation 5 nights per week before bed. I've been doing these the past few nights and they've helped knock me out. Do "real" meditation for 5 minutes 4x per week. Any more is bonus. 5 Quote "Come with me if you want to lift" -The Brominator "Later, I would learn that coincidences are the most planned things in the world.
