      At the Sequoyah museum.

      Worked out: combat HIIT d12 &13, gladiator d13, yoga d13.

      Worked in: yoga d12 ten minute meditation

      Thoughts for today: from an unknown Inuit:
      ​​​​​​“I think over again my small adventures,
      My fears, those small ones that seemed so big,
      For all the vital things I had to get and reach
      And yet there is only one great thing,
      The only thing:
      To live to see the great day that dawns
      And the light that fills the world.”


        Hemmed in by downtown streets. Short sight lines, no clear vistas. Tomorrow, mountains.

        Combat HIIT d14 ✔
        Yoga d14 ✔
        DoD ✔

        Goal: cross the mountains, God speed the travelers home.

        Thought for the day: "The hero journey is inside of you; tear off the veils and open the mystery of your self." ~ Joseph Campbell


          Thought for the day: Getting there is half the fun. Only half.

          Combat HIIT, gladiator, BBC 12 sec dare, yoga. Done!

                Thought: Never measure the height of a mountain until you have reached the top. Then you will see how low it was.

                  Thought: Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way. -- Victor Frankl


                    Check it out! Yoga, glads, com HIIt, 2 x d of d. Check, double check.

                    Have to help someone special move tomorrow, a couple hours to the coast, and new apartment up the stairs. Might not post, but will put in the exercise.

                    Thought for today:
                    Difficulty reveals the true self. Therefore when misfortune happens to you, consider it as though God, like a top wrestling coach, has paired you with a violent sparring partner. Why? So that you may become an Olympic champion; and championships are not won without sweat. -- Epictetus

                        (Thanks BlackButler ! I think it's almost 1year. I followed Neila Rey's superhero workouts way back when, then found out about Darebee early in 2018 and started following informally w/o a profile, but then I found out about the BADGES!!!)

                        Yesterday was d21 for Gladiator, combat HIIT, and yoga. Plus, moving daughter into her college apartment, up 4 stories at a time. Today check in: glads, yoga, HIIT d22 each √

                        Goal: put up a good fight vs. Father Time and his tag-team partner Entropy.

                        Thought for the day: when the student is ready, the teacher appears; when the student is again ready, the teacher disappears.

                          Check in: added gratitude 30d challenge. I guess we could all use this challenge. I know I can.

                          I tried something different with today's Combat HIIT.

                          D23 includes a four punch combo: jab, cross, upper cut, hook. The graphic shows a left jab, right cross, right uc, left hook.

                          I try to do the exercises as realistically as I can. So, strictly following this combo gave me the feeling
                          that I would be unprotected on my right, since after the cross I drop into a semicrouch, drop the right shoulder, and drop the right fist for the UC. Wide open for a left jab/left hook combo. The uc is such a short range punch anyway, it's not easy to connect right after a long range straight cross. Finally, I just feel unbalanced with L R R L sequence. So I did LJ, RC, LH, RUC. It feels more balanced, and progresses in w/ each punch from long to short range. But enough about me....

                          ✓✓✓ Gladiator, Yoga, combat HIIT, Gratitude. Also snuck in 2 d of d .

                          Goal: begin with the end in mind

                          Thought: “I don’t count my sit-ups, I only start counting when it starts hurting, when I feel pain, that’s when I start counting, cause that’s when it really counts.” – Muhammad Ali


                            Did the work outs ✓ .
                            Here's something to work 'in' with:
                            "Advice given to a young Native American at the time of his initiation:
                            As you go the way of life,
                            You will see a great chasm. Jump.
                            It is not as wide as you think.”
                            ― Joseph Campbell​​​​​
                            What are my chasms?
