I may have found a new adventure to pursue and that is in the form of archery. Yesterday there was an open house at the new Nebraska Game and Parks Outdoor Education Center and I got a try shooting a bow and arrow for the first time. I found it to actually be quite relaxing and it felt good to at least hit the target all three times I tried. I want to go back again some time and try paying for time and seeing how I do with some practice. I might even sign up for one of the classes they offer there at a later date. I also accomplished killing a fake turkey so we can all enjoy some tasty fake turkey for dinner!

I like the idea of getting involved with something where I can improve my skills and enter competitions and test my skills against other people. I know theĀ Cornhusker State Games has more than one archery division you can shoot with and I think that would be a lot of fun.

I found the archery shooting gave me that same almost zen feeling I have when I play golf and I’m about to tee off. It’s the moment of time where your mind is blank and your focus is strong. It’s just me and the ball (or arrow as the case my be) and nothing else matters. There’s no outside sounds, there’s just this overwhelming zoned feeling and it feels great.

I finally scheduled my yearly physical and it’s on July 25th, exactly 8 weeks from today. I have a lot of goals for this appointment so I decided to make it my own like challenge – 8 Weeks to Awesome.

I am going to make this an open challenge and encourage all of my reader’s to join in. Set a goal for 8 weeks from this time and achieve it. It can be fitness based but it doesn’t have to be, just pick something that will help you be more awesome 8 weeks from today. Comment and let us all know what you are planning!

I’m going to spend the next 8 weeks hitting all my goals and go in to see my doctor with the most awesome accomplishments that I can. My highest goal will be to have lost 100 lbs since my physical last year and it’s doable as long as I put in the work. Eat healthy, stay within my calorie goals, do my workouts, stay active and get fit. The exercise helps to get my muscles and such back into shape but it’s going to really come down to how I’m fueling my body. In the next 8 weeks I want to focus on eating vegetables, cooking more, and staying on point.

My daily calorie goal is now set to 1750 and I’m going to distribute that over 3 meals and 2 or 3 snacks. The main thing I know that works best for me is to make sure that I’m eating vegetables as they have a lot of bulk without a lot of calories. Plus making meals ahead of time and then portioning out leftovers is something I’ve been wanting to try for awhile.

I will keep updating this blog as another goal since I never post even though I want to. I really need to start posting more content and I want to learn more about fitness, health, nutrition, etc, so keep watching! This is going to be awesome!
