*looks around* Well, I'm back.

I disappeared for a few months. In that time I tried a few other fitness apps/websites, none of which lasted once the novelty wore off. Eventually I just stopped working out (yeah... I'm kinda out of shape at the moment).

Then I decided that Darebee is still the best workout thingy on the Internet, plus the Hive is so nice, and I don't really know why I left?

So yeah. Picking back up with Fit December and a few challenges. New thread, new picture. Trying to work out on a regular basis (I'm baaad at consistency) and have some fun with it, doing my best to fight the old anxiety-depression combo and live my life.

7th December 2023
  • Fit December (7/31)
  • Power Squats (7/30) owww. Yesterday had so many lunges, and you remember what I said about being kinda out of shape? Yeah, my legs did not appreciate.
  • Destress (7/30)
  • 5 min meditation
  • Gratitude: I had so.much.pasta today (I love pasta so much you guys its amazing)

Welcome back, Haleth! It's great to see you again!

P.S.: Your check-in thread link from your profile is broken. Looks like you have too much stuff in there. The software only wants the back end of the URL from you. So:

threads/in-amongst-the-trees.1312/
or:
threads/in-amongst-the-trees.1312/unread
(depending on whether you want the link to go to the first page of your check-in thread or to the last checked page)

*edited previous day to add the 10 minutes meditation I did*

Thanks for the welcome @Laura Rainbow Dragon! (and the heads-up about my link)

  • Fit December (10/31)
  • Power Squats (10/30)
  • Destress (10/30) fun fact, every time I type 'destress' my phone tries to autocorrect it to 'distress'. That's like the opposite of what I'm going for here ;)
  • 4 min Plank (done in 60sec sets throughout the day) for the Christmas tree
  • 5 min meditation
  • Gratitude: I felt exceptionally peaceful this morning

Hello all! I've got a bit behind on Fit December (and run out of hall passes, oops) but I'm caught up now on Power Squats and Destress.

If I don't have time to come here tomorrow then Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday of your choice, or just happy 25th of December to everyone in the Hive!

Start of a new year! I want to try Hero's Journey. It's a little scary, but also looks very fun. So... that's my plan for the next few months, but I will be taking Sundays off from it to give myself a little break and because I'm usually busy then.

A few more January goals:
  • Complete Power Hold and Good Morning Challenges
  • Meditate on a regular basis - I'm starting the meditation challenge to help with this.
  • Warmup and stretch before/after working out
  • Continue with gratitude and Bible in a Year
  • Get back into learning Welsh (remember when I used to do this)
I don't necessarily expect that I'll do all those things every day, but it gives me something to strive for.

And for today:

1st January 2024
:x:Warmup and Stretching
:v:Good Morning (1/30)
:v:Power Hold (1/30)
:v:Hero's Journey (1/60) Level III
:v:Meditation (1/30) 5 min
:x:Welsh
:v:Bible in a Year (180/365)
Gratitude: I've got a whole new year in front of me :ss:

...I don't remember what I did yesterday. I don't think it was anything. I slept a lot, still recovering from the weekend.

I'll post my log for today later on, when I've actually (hopefully) worked out.
