  1. Haha, I will have to keep all of those in mind. It is such a great city! If I ever need to plan a trip there and don't know what to do, I know who to ask.
  2. A friend and I are doing the Tough Mudder in November. We'll be going on Sunday and I wanted to know if any of you lot would care to join us. It'll be my first mud run, and I believe hers as well.
  3. Thanks for the warning! I'd say I will be more prepared now, but I probably won't be. Funny enough we went on their Vampire Tour because I am a sucker for vampire history(punintended). We had Jill, and she was a blast. I told my friends when we go back we have to do their tours again.
  4. Sounds good! I have accepted you. Spike is my favorite character, the transition from bad guy to good guy is beautiful. Especially when he gets the chip! (Fun fact, I met James Marsters at MegaCon in Orlando and he as really nice and in a band.) Hey man, Grad School is what's up! Definitely focus on that, but make sure you can have some fun times as well. We don't need you going crazy.
  5. I'm planning on doing mostly body weight training, but I'll probably throw in some cable work and free weights from time to time. I know I want to do more with the TRX Bands that my gym has.
  6. Ah, it was great! My friends and I are going back on Halloween 2015. I've been told it is like Mardi Gras but with less tourists.
  7. What happens when someone with a gypsy soul has time off? New Orleans adventures. 16 hrs of driving, and it was totally worth it!

  8. My Main Quest is to prep to be an Assassin/Druid hybrid. -Missions: 1) Build Stamina! Use the Elliptical 3x a week (100%) 2) Conquering Body Weight! Lift at least 2x a week(100%) 3) Limber Up! Stretch everyday (100%) 4) One with Nature. Practice Yoga 2x a week (100%) -Side Quests: None completed 1) Go to the beach and watch the sun set 2) Go Kayaking 3) Finish Season 2 of Zombies, Run! Even though I didn't complete the side missions I feel like new ones popped up. It is so strange how it happened too. I went from a 5k to a rope tower to New Orleans. This has probably been the strangest and most amazing past three weeks of my life. Of all things, I didn't expect this to be how I started to level up. Thank you, I've noticed you've been keeping up on the thread. I appreciate the silent support. I can honestly say that I think I passed. I've done things that I don't think I would have done without starting here. I actually just got back from New Orleans so I am a bit tired and decided that I won't be finishing the story right now, but pick it back up when the new challenge starts again. The Assassin guild is exactly what I am looking for and I have been thinking about what I want to do. This is what I decided: Main Quest: Conquering My Body Missions: Weightless: Practice hand stands twice a week Boneless: Intense stretching three times a week and passive stretching the other four days Fearless: Start taking silk lessons Powerful: Continue weight training Side Missions: Go some where or do something new
  9. You did great! Your next goals look awesome, and pull ups are so hard, but you can do it. Also, swing dancing is incredibly fun! If you use myfitnesspal you should add me (I've been trying to keep track of what I eat, but I often forget until the day is over). My username is mkdutch. On a side note: Bonus points for using Once More With Feeling. One of my favorite episodes, right up there with Buffy Vs. Dracula. If you in Tampa in August my friends are doing a shadow cast of Once More With Feeling and Dr. Horrible.
  10. Yay!! Welcome aboard!! You are going to rock this! Just you wait.
  11. So, I just decided to go to New Orleans tomorrow and wanted to know who all is up there.
  12. Hey, you did a good job nonetheless! Next time make an alternative to the stairs. So instead of "take the stairs" do "take the stairs once a day, or jog around the apartment twice". Great job though!
  13. Hey! Welcome to the Rebellion! You can do it, it'll just take work. How old is your daughter?
  14. Looks like you killed it!! Keep it up! Only 3 days left of the challenge.
  15. I just wanted to post this before I closed up this challange on Sunday: I had the session with the personal trainer yesterday and he taught me an alternative to burbees that are just as aweful, but easy on the knees and ankles. I think he called them walkouts. Basically you crouch and touch the floor, walk your hands out to a pushup, then you walk your hands back, and stand up. Rinse and repeat! My legs are killing me, but it is a great exercise and I needed to share.
  16. I can relate! Roller coasters and drop towers are no problem to me. Ropes? I might die... just something to conquer. Whoo! I'll add them at the end of the week. ^.^
  17. I suddenly thought that the week was over because Tuesdays are my Fridays and my schedule is all kinds of wonky. I am late to update my story so I'll have to get on that huh? Also that guy looks absolutely petrified! I think I'll stick with rope when I hit the ceiling. XD *Clears throat* Now, without further ado, we check in on our hero. Dutch clutched her knees and tried desperately to regain her breathing. The Elf laughed from a tree branch seemingly unfazed. It was one thing running through the woods at her own pace, but zipping to the ground on a rope and sprinting after the tiny creature, Dutch thought she would die. "Hah! Ya'll never make the assassins like that," the Elf spat. "That's. the. good. thing about. us Orcs," she struggled through her breathes. "We're stubborn. as mules." "Well, you kept up this far," the Elf hopped down from the branch, "so I guess I have no choice but to help you. Come on, I can't bring a newbie and not give 'em some lessons." The Elf drew a dirk and tossed it at the Orc's feet, "let's start with some weapons training." Mission Status: 1) Build Stamina! Use the Elliptical 3x a week (66% Complete) 2) Conquering Body Weight! Lift at least 2x a week (66% Complete) 3) Limber Up! Stretch everyday (66% Complete) 4) One with Nature. Practice Yoga 2x a week (66% Complete) Nothing exciting happened the rest of the week, but this week I have an hour with a personal trainer, weapon training, and a parkour class. I also may be going on an adventure on Sunday. So much stuff going on!
  18. I won't lie, the bread isn't great alone. It is actually a brand called "Paleo Bread". If you pile stuff on it though(like the above) it is quite good, and helps sate in bread cravings.
  19. If you are really craving bread and have the paleo bread it is really awesome on that with a tomato. A little less paleo add some swiss cheese on top and toss it in the oven for a couple minutes and it is heavenly.
  20. So, I am looking for an adventure sometime Memorial weekend(or the Wednesday before). Only problem being, I am tight on cash and I don't know what to do. Okay, that is a lie, I've looked up horse back riding and kayaking/canoeing but I don't know if I have anyone to go with, and I don't know if I want to adventure alone. So, if there is anyone looking for some fun times this weekend that isn't too expensive and around the Tampa Bay Area let me know.
  21. If you ever find yourself in Tampa sometime you'll find me there.
  22. *deep breathe* Nothing is more empowering then telling someone "No".

    1. MalleusMaleficarum


      Or useful for your life!

      Haha, that too!

  23. Hello comrade. I'm sorry to hear about you feeling depressed (I know that can be the most difficult thing to overcome) but you are picking yourself up and that is incredible! Keep up the hard work.
  24. Thank you! If you get the chance I recommend trying a rope course. It is wicked fun. I am definitely going rock climbing some time though. I don't know what style I want to do yet. The place near me has both. I know eventually I'll have to do ropes so I can climb across the ceiling. XD
