  1. Apologies on the tardiness in reply and general updating! These past two weeks have been a little crazy. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Goals: - Complete four weeks of Couch to 5K - 15 XP (XP MOVED TO FARRELL'S PROGRAM) Welp, I haven't even started on this guy. I've been far too focused on Farrell's to even work on this. I'm getting my ass whooped so I think this guy is gonna have to drop - Beginner Bodyweight Workout every other day CHANGED: Complete four weeks of the 10 Week Challenge at Farrell's - 25 XP (Signing up = 5 XP ✓ ) Ho shit this past week has kicked my ass. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are all kickboxing at this gym, while Tuesday and Thursday are strength training with bands and exercise balls. The challenge hasn't quite started (starts this next Monday), but this week is Friends and Family, where those mentioned can come in to check out the gym, but they don't change the workouts for the newbies? So anywho, I'm already building up endurance and have done better over the last two days compared to earlier this week, which hopefully means I'll do fairly decently once they start us on the newb course next week. - Rest on Sundays - 5 XP Does playing d&d and splitting the team count as resting? I require opinions... - Meal Prep lunches and dinners on Sunday each week - 25 XP Okay, so I got all the lunches prepped for the week and only half of the dinner, so I think it's progressing alright. It didn't help that I figured the plan out on Sunday after my d&d game, then went shopping, and just didn't have enough time to finish. SO. Tonight, I'm trying to finish a meal plan for next week so we can get shopping done on Saturday so I can prep on Sunday. - Start doing deadlifts (working towards 50lbs total at end of challenge) - 15 XP I want to figure out a way to include this still, but it might be tough with the way this program is formatted. I'll have to ask what the band weight equivalents are? Still isn't a comparison though... Hmmmm... - Establish and enact for 30 days a morning and evening routine - 10 XP I have successfully failed at this everyday this week, so starting tomorrow, we're making an active choice to enact that plan. - Go on a date with Ben - 15 XP ✓ SUCCESS. We went on a date on Monday (Bowling! I totally crushed him in the last game ahahahaha) and both were like... yeah we need to go out again, so we're going out again on Monday of this coming week! We both had been hoping to see each other again within this week but work schedules are dumb. Current XP: 20 (1/5 to Level 2)
  2. Hi! I just made it actually! There's a group of us on twitter who are working on bettering ourselves and I'm slowly pulling them over to the forums here XD
  3. First, thanks guys! I mean, I speak fluent Minnesotan sooooo...
  4. Ahaha, he's a guy I've been talking to on OkCupid for the last week and a half or so. We're going on a date on Monday!

  6. Hey all! This is a group for accountability for Critical Role fans! There are a bunch of us on twitter and tumblr who are just starting to explore getting fit and tackling goals, so it's important to have folks who can hold us accountable. Feel free to share links to your 4-week challenge, any blog posts, or anything else you think would be useful! Thanks! Morgan
  7. No particular order, just how they came into my head. XD
  8. Presses [reset]. Hey all! I’m Morgan. I’m a 22 year old cis!female from Minnesota who has tried several times to get healthy. I struggle with clinical depression and am currently in a really low swing, but I’m hoping that focusing on these challenges and being surrounded by community will help. The above photo on the right lists my goals for the next six weeks. I’ll be posting a journal with my current stats (weight, measurements, etc) as well as a full body shot tomorrow. Cheers! -Morgan
  9. Apologies on the lack of updates. This past week and a half I've had my final week at university, my final week at my job, and the first week of rehearsals for a show I am assistant stage managing, so time has been under a lot of strain and I've been under a lot of stress, which reflected on actions over that time. As such, I didn't track my choices each day and am making a judgement call on how I did. (A reminder, Green=1, Orange = 1/2, Red=0) Food wise, I've been decent on making good choices, so those get full points. Meditation I completely failed at. At least half the days I was active and working, but I don't remember which so half points for all. Same sort of idea with the pop, I wasn't sure which days got what, but I know on some days I was better than others. So, half points. Technically still have tomorrow, but for a first challenge, this has definitely helped me figure out what my reflexes are when I'm stressed and how well I can do with a million other things going on. Going forward as I have more time, I should be able to focus better.
  10. Oh thank you. I will go make this. My throat is still crappy so I will def make this. <3
  11. Yeah, sometimes it's hard to look at the positives when I feel like I'm doing horrible, but I've been doing well on eating my fruits and veggies and protein. I need to improve on water and meditation still, but overall doing well. Also the no pop thing I've been kinda crappy about lately... hmm. I have some goals in mind for the next challenge already, so that's good. Now if only this cough and phlegm would go away, everything would be great.
  12. MORGAN'S BEEN A PIECE OF SHIT WHO STILL HAS A FUCKING COUGH AND SNIFFLES AND UGH SO I TYPED ALL THIS ALREADY AND THEN SOMEHOW FUCKED UP MY TAB AND IT ALL DISAPPEARED SO HERE'S A QUICK VERSION: I keep falling back on old habits and getting bad about exercise and meditation, which I can see affecting my days. SOOOOOOOOO. Today I am going to do better. And then tomorrow I'm going to do better. And I'm just going to keep repeating that. 'Cause that seems all I can do right now. I'll keep y'all updated.
  13. Yeah, I mean, I won't lie and say I'm not worried about money in the future, but we'll see what happens. It helps that I have connections out in New York already because my uncle stage manages out there.
