  1. I'm not going take too much time write something clever here. I'm just going to say that I faltered for some time and fell into anxiety-ridden funk and allowed myself to wallow in sloth and gluttony. That is no longer the case. Today I embark on the journey once again, ready to face and conquer the challenges before me. Here is a link to my first(ish) treasure hunt: relighting the ancient torch
  2. My total lack of conditioning and build up of mass attributable to being a slacker during the ensuring months since my last treasure hunt shall no longer be. I am now mentally and emotionally prepared to take the world by storm. After reading an excellent article on Lifehacker, I decided to sign right up. I have the following chains that I shall not break. My rebellious goals align with them directly. I'm going to restart with a fresh mind and make the smallish changes that will last. Goal #1 -Eat Clean and Fuel the Machine +2 CON Booze only the weekend No sugary drinks whatsoever No fast food whatsoever Goal #2 - Work the Machine +2 STR, +2 DEX, +2 STA Sunday is for running Monday through Friday are for T-25 Goal #1 - Enhance Your Calm +1 WIS Evenings are for meditation Week 1: 5 minutes per day Week 2: 10 minutes per day Week 3: 15 minutes per day Week 4: 20 minutes per day
  3. Getting reacquainted after a long hiatus.  I'm finally ready to make a permanent lifestyle change for the better.

  10. Thanks for the feedback, terosx. You're right in that a big jump can be daunting. However, I generally jump in with both feet first Also, I've been doing physically demanding martial arts twice per week so I'm not worried. That said, I didn't get my run in yesterday.

  12. Exercise & Diet I realize that I'm very late to the party here and apologize to my fellow Adventurers who tried to keep me focused; I simply lost focus and the fire. My total lack of conditioning and build up of mass attributable to being a slacker so far this summer & fall was made evident during the last few Haganah sessions. I could barely keep up. That changes starting today. I am now mentally prepared to take the world by storm. Also, registering for this April's Tough Mudder in the Poconos is one hell of a motivator. After reading an excellent article on Lifehacker, I decided to sign right up. I have the following chains that I shall not break. My rebellious goals align with them directly.
