Good morning Big Sexy people!
A couple weeks ago, the Kahuna’s visited an indoor water park resort. This place also had a wizard adventure for the kids. You know, you go around the resort with a wand and collect virtual things. Basically, four floors near the atrium of kids running around with plastic sticks thinking their wizards.
The kids founds other children their own age to go on this adventure with. Before they started exploring, we met the kids and their parents. Then, we let them go on this magical adventure.
The point of this post, adventures are a lot more fun with friends. The Kahuna Kid’s ran through out the wizard play area for hours. These kids had no idea who these kids were but they were brought together through this game. After an hour into the game, you would have thought they were friends for ever. And these kids interacted with other kids in a decent manner. There were some kids who were being mean, is happens. What did my kids do when faced with the mean kids? They moved on and didn’t let these idiots ruin a fun time.
We should be this open to new adventures with friends. Make plans to have lunch with someone other than eating alone. Find a friend to hit the gym at lunch time. Go for a walk or run. Call them up and say “Hey friend, let’s do something!”
Want to live a happier life, be more social. Get out and laugh more.
Tomorrow is Big Win Friday. I’d love to hear your big wins for the week.
Be Big Sexy!
I love you all!
This post is part of my Kahuna Positivity Manifesto. Treat positivity like cross fit or training for a marathon, tell as many people as possible all the time.
What are your goals for the week?
1. 10k Fitbit steps a day. Going to 5k walk each morning.
2. Less sugar intake. Less soda and more water. At least 64oz a day. I’ll track in the Fitbit app.
3. Crush my enemies, trolls and haters.
4. Be awesome.
5. Be big sexy.
What about you?
What are you working on this week to be a more awesome you?
I post my goals each week to hold myself accountable and to inspire other to do the same. Are you looking to make a change in your life? Think about the things you want to change. Choose one of two things you want to work on and move forward with it.
Don’t complicate it. Pick one or two things and work on those for the week. Let me know how you did!
You can also follow my progress on Twitter @BgKahuna and on Facebook.
My goals for week ending May 30th:
1. 500 words in my journal each morning.
My goal is to complete this in the first lap of my daily walk. It’s a low traffic neighborhood and I won’t be looking down the entire time. Also, I feel most creative in the mornings.
2. Walk 5k each day.
As of this writing, I am on day six. I would really like to make it to day 12 next Saturday. The goal is to wake up early and walk two laps around the neighborhood. This past week, I missed one morning. That walk was completed in the afternoon. I am going to build some wiggle room into this challenge. If I miss a day due to weather or scheduling, I have 24 hours to make it up. Let’s face it. Things happen. My challenge, my rules.
Why am I walking and not running? I am still recovering from the heel injury. Better safe then sorry.
3. Devote an hour of play with the kids after school for four days.
I. We’d to do more of this. I said three on Facebook because they are not in school on Monday (Memorial Day). This was changed to four here because it’s important and I need to spend more time with them. Please don’t read this and think I don’t spend any time with the little people. I drive them to school each morning, lead their Cub Scout den and coach one of their soccer team. This is a dedicated hour.
4. Write a blog post each morning to build the writing practice. I probably won’t publish them for a while, but I want to start this habit.
Writing has always been a challenge for me. As I get older, I want to get better at doing it. You know, to work on the memoir every old person wants to write. Just kidding. I’m writing an autobiography. I am working on a wellness adventure website and we do need content.
5. Be more awesome and sexy than the previous day.
If you’re reading this and follow me on social media you know this will be the easiest one to do.
My main goal is to focus on number five, the rest will come into line
Be big sexy!
Well, up a little less than a pound this week. I think there was two issues that led to this. One was a new scale. The scale at home hates me. It’s a lot less generous than the scale at the gym. I stress ate a little this week. I have a sales offer on my home that came a lot earlier than we thought it would and there’s a possibility of me being homeless in April. The stress eating is also from hearing all the money that gets spent on a new home.
I am freaking out just writing about it. I know everything is going to work out. It almost always does. Well, except for that one time.
We are looking at new homes and it’s stressing me out even more. Okay take a deep breath. I got this. I hope I can got this. Please tell me I got this.
I’m still running. Didn’t get the strength workouts in n this past week. I think I hit my 2000 push-up goal. I’ll have to check.
I ran 140 miles in February. I am feeling good about the Carmel marathon coming up. My average daily mileage has bumped up to six miles per run. The intervals are still happening. Although the walking segment is getting shorter. I started running at the Monon Center in Carmel. On that track, there are eight laps to a mile. I’ve been trying to walk one lap and run three. Each lap is .12 miles long. Over the last couple of runs, I’ve been trying to walk half a lap and run three and a half laps.
Two month into this challenge. Down 15.6 and finally crossed the 240 threshold. I’m a little behind my pace by 0.4. We’ll make it up in March.
Today, I set a goal of running four miles in 40 minutes. With some work, I ran it in 36 minutes. I know there are plenty of people who can run four miles a lot faster than 36 minutes. But, this was my Everest and I did it. This has to be my fastest treadmill time for any distance. The treadmill looked like a satellite trying to renter the atmosphere.
Things are going well. It’s a slow go but we got this.
If you’re thinking about starting a wellness journey and not sure where to start…just start. Just start walking down the path and don’t overthink it. Just donut.
