  1. Week three is up! Let us know what you're going to do and how it goes You have until the end of the day Sunday. PS Don't forget you still have until tomorrow to get week 2 done.
  2. This week is definitely going better than the first. I'm getting in some good workouts, work kind of lightened up a bit towards the end of the week, and I am noticing improvements in my flexibility from focusing on stretching every day AND for the first time in my life that I've ever tried running I feel like it's not the most awful thing in the word more or less. Still only getting a little less than a mile in a straight run before I have to walk again, but I don't feel so defeated with it as I have in the past attempts at "getting into" running. Still really missing dance, the solo choreo classes online aren't filling the hole but it is making it a bit more bearable. Plus I get to say hi to all my friends from dance on zoom a few times a week when we stay on for a minute after class which is really great. I've also been doing random chin ups as I walk through my doorway on my pull up bar and have been really feeling those improve as well. Also 3 D&D live sessions over roll20 this week (DMed on Thursday, played my Tabaxi Bard today, and will be DMing tomorrow). All around good stuff Only bad stuff is me eating kind of like garbage but I'll try to figure that out next week, for now I'm OK with it. I've also got to slice out some time to make my rounds here - I've been severely slacking there and I'm sorry guys Hope you are all doing well. Week 2 Challenge Progress: Stretch (ROMWOD) Every Day: 6/6 Workout Every Day: 6/6 Monday - Stronglifts Tuesday - Ran 1 mile, walked 1.5 miles, Ab workout & Online Rumba Class Wednesday - Stronglifts, 4.11 mile walk Thursday - Ab workout, Online Samba Class Friday - Stronglifts, Ab workout Saturday - 3.42 mile walk/run, Online Jive Class
  3. Haha yeah it's weird, it's like everyone is reaching out so much for virtual socialization I'm actually talking to people *more* than I was before. Nutso. Thanks Love our VIP access to each other Yayyy heyo thanks for stopping in fearless DM
  4. This is totally legit! Go for it
  5. I don't really understand how this has happened, but I am somehow more busy than usual now, mostly because I'm working such late hours. My job has totally exploded with everyone scrambling to reschedule all their projects and getting questions about how we are going to execute from higher ups constantly. Ugh. But I've been hanging in there with my 5 D&D games on roll20/discord (we've officially converted the two in-person games to online for now), zoom meetings, online dance classes, and trying to go for runs. Tomorrow and Sunday I'm DMing but two games, and then Saturday I'm playing in another game. Always constantly ticking away at the PbP DMed by D_R as well which is a consistent source of good vibes for me. I also had a really nice zoom chat with some dance friends on Monday which was so nice. I'm missing all of them so much! My challenge goals weren't totally met last week but here's my rundown: Week 1 Challenge Summary: 78% Stretch (ROMWOD) Every Day: 5/7 Workout Every Day: 6/7 Monday - Stronglifts Tuesday - Ran 1 mile, walked 1.5 miles, Ab workout Wednesday - Stronglifts Thursday - Online Dance Class Friday - Ran 1 mile, walked 1.5 miles Saturday - Online Dance Class Sunday - Fail Week 2 Challenge Progress: Stretch (ROMWOD) Every Day: 3/3 Workout Every Day: 3/3 Monday - Stronglifts Tuesday - Ran 1 mile, walked 1.5 miles, Ab workout & Online Dance Class Wednesday - Stronglifts
  6. Thank you! My energy levels are slowly coming back up as I adjust. I've been doing so many zooms I've actually been socializing possibly more than I was before oddly enough. It's not the same though, I really thrive on the energy of other people, and hugs in particular. But it's getting better as I get used to it. Thanks for the hugs! Right back at you I'm OK! Trying to make myself a schedule and to-do list each day. Which I normally have to do anyway... but it just feels different doing it while sitting from home. But things are getting better. Medium to medium rare XD thanks for checking in!!
  7. Second week is up! I gave you a little extra time to complete it since I am late in posting it (sorry all!! Somehow I've been busier during this quarantining that usual XD). Let us all know how you plan to fight the tribe of cannibals!
  8. I saw that my friend recently played a game where every time you take a sip you have to do x numer of burpees and when you finish a drink you have to do x push ups and x sit ups. She got hilariously drunk and also a good workout hahah
  9. Ugh thanks, Tank. I'm really happy for all the people who have been training all their lives for this with their introvertedness haha. We all can't fall apart during this so I'm thankful ya'll are keeping the world together right now haha The rub is I'm still seeing a few people that we've agreed to be each others limited contacts during all of this with, and I'm STILL wilting away haha. Also you KNOW my extrovert energy has me looking for your thread, here I come!
  10. Hiya! Like most of us I have been stuck inside for the last 3 weeks, and it was just announced at my job that I'll be teleworking until at least April 30 now, and my dance studio and gym will likely be following suit in being closed for that amount of time as well. If you've followed me before you know... I am EXTREMELY active. My schedules is typically jam packed with dance, workouts, volunteering, work, and social things. I'm literally rarely home except to sleep and eat. So this is exceedingly difficult for me. Raxie + staying home is like oil and water and I'm trying to not totally lose my sh*t. I'm trying to be thankful that I am healthy and that I can work from home and that I am not laid off like so many other people, but I'm feeling like an under-watered house plant just slowly shriveling up. I never realized what an extrovert I am and how much I thrive on other people's energy and hugs and activity but here I am. The unlike things in the title are me and staying inside XD. I honestly don't have the energy to put together more of a challenge, my motivation is kind of lackluster, but the challenge WILL be Carnival Row themed because hot DAMN that show is good! Like seriously, go watch it. My goals will be simple so that I can actually make myself do them: 1) Stretch every day 2) Work out every day - literally anything. And that's it. Time to brace myself for this being the new normal and let's get to it! Hope you all are well
  11. Absolutely! Anything that feels endurance-y to you is fine! It can be mental endurance too - maybe an extra long meditation session? Or even stretching endurance like yin yoga which has you hold stretches for long times (like 5+ minutes). Or if anything physical is off the table and you'd like to count treasure and do some financial rangering instead in terms of working on a budget or doing a no spend week that would be totally fine as well.
  12. Week one us up! Let us know what you plan to do and how it goes here
  13. Omg hugs hugs hugssss!!!! So low on hugs these days
  14. Welcome to Rangers of the Caribbean Ahoy matey's! Are you ready to set sail for some adventure? Pirates are basically Rangers of the high seas, so it seems it should be an easy transition. This challenge we'll be traveling around the world, possibly getting into some trouble, and defending the seas against any threats. Each week we'll be going to a different classic Pirate location and face whatever challenges we find there. ----------------------------- Week Zero we have just arrived at Port Royal, getting all of the necessary supplies before we ship out! What are you all doing to prepare for the upcoming challenge? Let us all know here! ----------------------------- Week 1 This week we set sail in search of treasure from the safety of Port Royal and make our way to Isla de Muerta! But beware... cursed skeletons of past treasure seekers haunt these caves! They are undying and require constant fighting, dodging, and running to escape before you snatch the treasure and get out. This requires endurance - so add an endurance workout (ie HIIT, Tabita, sprints, EMOM, etc) to your week this week in order to successfully snatch this treasure! You have until the end of the day Sunday. ----------------------------- Week 2 After successfully fighting the never-ending onslaught of skeletons and counting all your new gold, you make your way to the beautiful Isla de Pelegostos to relax and enjoy the pristine beaches in solitude. As you begin to relax with some of your newly purchased very expensive rum from Tortuga, you are overtaken by cannibals! You left your weapons on the boat, so you'll have to fight them off hand to hand! This week, add a dexterity based fighting move to your workout (ie a quick online workout of kickboxing, tai chi, sit up punches, warrior yoga sequence, etc). You have until the end of the day Tuesday. ----------------------------- Week 3 You've escaped the cannibals and made it to your ship. Since this island did not work out well for you, you're in search of another beautiful Caribbean island on which to enjoy your newly acquired rum in peace. Suddenly you begin to feel unexpected turbulence in the water, and a giant tentacle springs from the surface and slams down close enough to your ship to rock it nearly on it's side. You are able to right the ship, but this is just the beginning. The owner of the tentacle rises up, and you have a Kraken to deal with! Use your upper body strength to steer the ship around this giant beast and keep it from capsizing! To do so, add an extra upper body set to your workouts this week (anything from rows, presses, push ups, pull ups, etc count. Scaling for your ability level is encouraged).
  15. That cache sounds SO cool! Also, do you have pictures of the flowers you made? They sound pretty
