  1. Thank you for letting me know. That really sucks @Wufkar and I'm very sorry for your loss. Keep lifting in the sky, big guy!
  2. Challenge Recap 1. Weights It had been awhile since I lifted heavy things, and, unfortunately, it showed. I had to start at a lower weight than the last time I lifted, which was about a year ago. I knew it would be lower to start, obviously, but it was lower than I had hoped at an almost embarrassing weight limit. Still, I enjoyed weight lifting and slowly increased my weight limit, with my new at-home setup. I still miss my old gym setup and prefer it, but at least this is something that I should be able to stick with. And I did complete this challenge, despite having to downsize the weights to start. Scoring: 5/5 (1 for each weight achieved) Barbell Curls: 12.5lbs → 20lbs = achieved 6 reps at 20lbs each arm on 11/11/2020 Bench Press: 35lbs → 65lbs = achieved 2 sets of 4 reps/6 reps at 65lbs on 11/28/2020 Deadlift: 50lbs → 65lbs = achieved 2 sets of 7 reps/10 reps at 65lbs on 11/18/2020 Squat: 35lbs → 50lbs = achieved 2 sets of 8 reps/10 reps at 50lbs on 11/18/2020 Tricep Pullovers: 12.5lbs → 25lbs = achieved 2 sets of 6 reps each at 25lbs on 11/17/2020 Reward: +5 to STR (+1 for each completed) 2. Walking Even with the Thanksgiving holiday, I managed to succeed with this quest. Scoring: 24/25 days Reward: +5 to STA (+1 for every week achieved) 3. Blow Meals This quest was always going to be the hardest one for me to succeed at and it was. I just like getting to eat whatever I want on weekends. While I didn’t do great, I did get C though, which is better than failing completely. Hopefully if I do this quest in future challenges, I can lock it down harder. Scoring: 3/5 weekends Reward: 2+ CON & 1+ CHA (+1 for each weekend achieved) Overall, a pretty successful challenge!
  3. Weights: 5/5 - bench press; 2 sets of 4 reps/6 reps at 65lbs = My form wasn't great, but passable and at least I managed a few reps.
  4. Walking: 24/25 (yesterday and today)
  5. Walking: 22/25 Blow Meals: 3/5 - I did not succeed in only 1 blow day this past weekend; too much temptation with tasty food.
  6. Walking: 19/25 Weights: 4/5 - deadlift; 2 sets of 7 reps/10 reps at 65lbs - squat; 2 sets of 8 reps/10 reps at 50lbs
  7. Walking: 18/25 Weights: 2/5 - tricep pullovers; 2 sets of 6 reps each at 25lbs
  8. Walking: 16/25 (went for a walk today since the husband will likely miss his usual one tomorrow)
  9. Walking: 15/25 (yesterday and today)
  10. Walking: 13/25 (yesterday and today) Weights: 1/5 - barbell curls; 6 reps at 20lbs each arm (I will regret this tomorrow!)
  11. Walking: 11/25 Blow Meals: 2/5 - I did not succeed in only 1 blow day this weekend. My steak on Saturday was sub-par, as was the side dish of noodles, so I caved and had pizza on Sunday.
