***I stayed at Level 28 because I didn’t complete my #28 challenge.
To live a healthy and balanced life by exercising and trying to eat healthy.
I've successfully dropped weight by counting calories so my diet will mostly be staying the same with 1200 calories per day M-F and then blow meals on the weekends. I've managed to put on some muscle in an effort to become stronger by weightlifting and I’ve discovered that I love lifting heavy things!
I’ve fallen out of what was my normal exercise routine so I’m getting back into because I need the gym again as my annual physical is November 16th. Since it’s been awhile, I’m going back to the basics by walking and doing easier weights to start with.
And for this challenge, I’m doing a duel-theme: Halloween (my favorite holiday!) and NaNoWriMo.
1. “Who’s Hunting Whom?” -Van Helsing = Walking
I’m getting back into exercising slowly, but I know from past experience that walking can be a great workout. And Van Helsing does a lot of walking while tracking creatures across Transylvania.
I plan on walking in the mornings before work and then on alternate non-weightlifting days at the gym over my lunch break.
Scoring: x/30 miles in 4 weeks (7.5 miles per week)
Reward: +3 CON & +3 DEX
2. “Stay Fit, Keep Sharp, Make Good Decisions” -Ghostbusters 2 = Weightlifting
It’s been awhile since I had a weightlifting routine, so it’s time to get back to lifting all the heavy things! I’ve missed it, so it’s time to reset and lift stuff again. I like it, it makes me feel better about myself and it’s got practical, real-world purposes.
A Ghostbuster has to be lite on their feet and in shape to haul around those heavy proton packs.
I want to achieve the following:
Bench press: 55lbs → 75lbs
Squat: 45lbs → 65lbs
Barbell curl: 15lbs → 25lbs
Deadlift: 60lbs → 80lbs
Pullups: 2 → 5
Reward: +3 STR & +3 CHA
3. “I Put A Spell On You” -Hocus Pocus = NaNoWriMo
I’ve participated in five NaNoWriMo’s and won twice now. While NaNo only starts on November 1st, this challenge only goes part-way through November, so I will continue this miniquest until November 30th. I’m hoping it will motivate me to work towards win #3!
And hopefully, if I win, my new story will put a spell on readers!
Reward: +3 STA (+1 for every 16,666 words written through November 30th)
