Amazon Evolution Update: Leveling Up!

Leave a comment

June 10, 2012 by Darlene McC

With this weekend’s completion of some major milestones I’m freakin’ thrilled to be able to say I leveled in the Amazon Evolution Challenge:

Lvl 2: Berry Picker! (122  pts)

I scored points through 3 of the goals on my list: ridding my apartment of storage clutter (20 pts), organizing the office shelves(10 pts), and (do do do doooooo) Completing a Sprint Distance Triathlon (30 pts)!  I also scored 1 point for my frequency of posting, bringing my grand total to 122 points.  I’d planned on rewarding myself for each level with something pertinent to the activities/goals/challenges that I did in the previous level; but my medal from the Tri is so freakin’ sweet I think it’s reward enough.

I’m planning to pen a race report later this week once it’s sunk in a little more (and I’ve slept a bit) – for now I just want to say Thank You.  To my awesome parents Sharon, Dave, and Jak for showing up and supporting me.  To my brother Dan for helping me with race logistics.  To my husband for being with me even if he wasn’t physically with me.  And to all of my amazing friends for your texts, calls, emails, tweets, facebook shout outs and other assorted forms of love.  You all know who you are… and the fact that your shoutouts included “Amazon” just about made my heart burst.  What an amazing, validating, wonderful day.  Good night to you all – sleep well, Tribe.

Sometimes you just need a change in perspective 🤔 . . . I haven't posted much the last few months as I underwent some huge personal transformations. Some days have been a struggle; other days the progress has been obvious. Through it all my meditation and self care have let me see my own resiliency. They've taught me to look beyond my flitting thoughts to my deeper self and work to my real truths. They've also shown me that much of life is what I do with it and how I interpret what's happening around me. . . . Life also continues to reinforce that a little bit more strength and a lot of humor go a long way. 💪🤪😎 aaaand: First post in the new apartment!! Enjoy that dramatic lighting. . . . #headstand #handstand #meditationmonday #meditate #meditation #progress #progressnotperfection #strong #strongwoman #yoga #EhlersDanlos #Hypermobilityehlersdanlossyndrome #heds #myillnessdoesnotdefineme #yogaeverywhere #alignmentyoga @luna_alignment_yoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #changeyourheartchangeyourmind
How do you use your downtime? A cancelled client gave me the extra time to get organized, to write, and to focus my mind. So often we spend the gift of a little extra time getting sucked into glowing rectangles - wasted time on our phones, TVs, and tablets. . . Can you commit to yourself today to harness your full potential? How are you going to feed your good wolf? . . . #feedthegoodwolf #potential #progressnotperfection #coaching #organization #bujo #selflove #selfcareisselflove #writer #feedyourdreams #starbucks #icedcoffee #morningglow #curlyhair #curlyhairdontcare #bighair #bighairdontcare
Not gana lie... that felt heavy 😅 (scroll to see my exit face) . . One thing consistent training has taught me: work through sh*t. Things will get hard, they'll feel weird, you won't understand it - keep going. Explore the challenge. Hunt for someone who's handled something similar and learn from them. I'd be nowhere without the support of my mentors and friends who I learn from constantly. 😘 . . . This was Day 1 of phase 2 of my summer prep program. Phase 2 is all volume work... I'm already tired! . . #girlswholift #fitchick #teameqx #eqxgreenwichave #staywild #gypsychild #rdl #deadlift #deadliftsaresexy #thickthighs #thickthighssavelives #legsfordays #liftspiration #fitpro
