    My best advice: Get yourself an intolerance for fructose. Super helpful!!

  3. After my intense back pains the last days I decreased the intensity of my workout today and focus more on volume, good form and full range of motion. The Hylian Assassin: Hood -- Running: | Tunic -- Workout: ||| Greaves -- Walking: ||||| 9880 steps. The Sun Warrior: Helmet -- Carbs: |||| Armor -- Fructose: |||||| Trousers -- Tracking: ||||||| Two servings of carbs. Fructose seems to settle down between 3 and 4 grams. But I had major sugar cravings today at the grocery store; still resisting them. The High-Tech Ninja: Mask -- Cleaning: ||||| Armor -- Hobbies: ||||| Greaves -- Work: |||||| Vacuumed my apartment and did my laundry. Finally started to re-read PlanetES as a bedtime reading. At work I did get a few things done for my thesis AND ticked of some hings on my to-do list.
  4. Grandkai's Achievement Log

    A few years ago I learned to juggle three balls. (And that's the end of my progress.) As many suggest I started out with one and then two balls and I was complete incompatible with that. No chance of understand juggling two balls. So I just started straight with three and it went pretty well pretty fast. Brains and muscles are weird...

    When you get sick, try to slow down your exercise, but don't stop them comepletely. When sick, going for walk is very good.
  6. Didn't sleep last night, mainly due to some intense back pains. Consequently, I didn't get much done today. The Hylian Assassin: Hood -- Running: | Tunic -- Workout: ||| Greaves -- Walking: ||||| 9849 steps. The Sun Warrior: Helmet -- Carbs: |||| Armor -- Fructose: |||||| Trousers -- Tracking: ||||||| 128 grams of carbs. Aiming for two servings seems to work. The High-Tech Ninja: Mask -- Cleaning: ||||| Armor -- Hobbies: ||||| Greaves -- Work: |||||| Dusted some boards in my apartment. And I fixed some minor details in my thesis. Considering the shape I was in today, that counts.
  7. The Hylian Assassin: Hood -- Running: | Tunic -- Workout: ||| Greaves -- Walking: ||||| 13656 steps, mainly due to going for a walk. The Sun Warrior: Helmet -- Carbs: |||| Armor -- Fructose: |||||| Trousers -- Tracking: ||||||| Two servings of carbs resulting in 116 grams. So far so good. The High-Tech Ninja: Mask -- Cleaning: ||||| Armor -- Hobbies: ||||| Greaves -- Work: |||||| Cleaned my fridge. And I read The Procrastination Equation and listend to Deep Work. Gave a nice synergy effect. And I finished a section of my thesis.

    Seems like everything's aligned. You'll blast through this challenge! And the sushi looks amazing!
  9. Okay... This weekend I wanted to compete in the Bavarian Go Championship. But du to an anxiety attack this morning I canceld the last rounds today. At least I got something done for the challenge. The Hylian Assassin: Hood -- Running: | Tunic -- Workout: ||| Greaves -- Walking: ||||| Did my usual workout. I feel comfortable enough with the new exercises to increase the number of sets the next time. And I walked over 6000 steps, which isn't bad for a lazy Sunday. But not enough... The Sun Warrior: Helmet -- Carbs: |||| Armor -- Fructose: |||||| Trousers -- Tracking: ||||||| Bread and rice and oatmeal... *sigh* The High-Tech Ninja: Mask -- Cleaning: ||||| Armor -- Hobbies: ||||| Greaves -- Work: |||||| Vaccumed my apartment, started to read The Procrastination Equation and made some corrections in my thesis.

I have no chance of completing this challenge. Even factoring in that week 0 began on Monday instead of Sunday and that I was more lazy in this week. But overall, my quests are way too hard. There are some odd ones like managing 9000 steps. This was no problem three, four challenges ago, but now it seems like a huge hurdle. So, let's focus on my priorities: Working out and working on my thesis. Everything else will be cut to an adequate amount. On every level -- head gear, upper-body armor, lower-body armor -- should be one hard quest and two easy to medium ones. That results in updated quests... The Hylian Assassin: Hood: Running once a week. Tunic: Working out three times a week. Greaves: Walking 9000 steps five times a week. The Sun Warrior: Helmet: Eating less than 150g of carbs on four days a week. Armor: Eating less than 5g of fructose on six days a week. Trousers: Tracking weight and macros every day of the week. The High-Tech Ninja: Mask: Cleaning something in my apartment five times a week. Armor: Doing one of my designated hobbies five times a week. Greaves: Getting something done for my thesis or something on my to-do list six times a week. HERE WE GO!

    Good idea! I hope you gain some sort of insight!
  13. I really liked my last challenge, but I think I need to make the system a bit more rigid. There were too many optional things to do. Moreover, I'm a huge fan of Dark Souls. Actually, I'm way too stupid to play it, but I really love Fashion Souls: Combining different armor and weapons to create unique outfits for the player character. Thus, combining my last challenge of collections things from The Legend of Zelda -- Breath of the Wild with playing dress-up, I'll collect clothes for our beloved, no-so-green-clad elvish hero. And thanks to www.fashionofthewild.com I have some nice pictures... Explanations will follow added. Some things might did change during week 0. Fashion Souls in the Wild I will collect three different outfits every week of the challenge by doing things. Every outift focusses on either exercise, diet or life quests. The hirachy of the pieces is bottom-to-top. The lower-body armor are 'fundamental' quests. The upper-body armor are 'functional' quest, building upon the fundamental ones. The head gears represent 'bonus' quest, which are important, but have the least priority. This hirachy will refelct in the rewards I'll (probably not) get. During the last week of September I'll be in Vienna for a few days. I yet have to think about how to adapt each quest for that time. The Hyrule Assassin Hylian Hood: Go running 2 times once a week. Hylian Tunic: Work out 3 times a week. Soldier Greaves: Walk 9000 steps 6 5 days a week. I'm very close to my "ultimate" weight goal of 80 kg (176 lbs. I think). So I want to focus more on body fat (28% at the moment *sigh*) and on building muscle. This means more focus on working out. Still I want to make overall movement my fundamental goal, as I'm still a Katy Bowman fanboy. Running is something I really enjoy and which (for whatever reasons) is good for my back. And now that the hot summer days are over, I want to do that again. The Sun Warrior Thunder Helmet: Stay below 150 grams of carbs 5 4 days a week. Zora Armor: Stay below 5 grams of fructose 6 days a week. Desert Voe Trousers: Track weight and macros daily. During the last challenges my weight drop by close to 2 lbs per week just by tracking and making minuscule changes in my meals. So I will continue that until I reached 80 kg. Due to my fructose intolerance I want/need to put a focus on that. The "critical" value seems to be around 10 grams, so I aim for 5. And as always I'm kinda in the anti-carb/anti-gluten camp, but not too serious. I just don't want to overeat on carbs too often. The High-Tech Ninja Stealth Mask: Each day 5 days a week, clean something in my apartment. Rubber Armor: Each day 5 days a week, do one of these: Read something, learn Polish, study/play Go, draw something. Ancient Greaves: Each day 6 days a week, Work on PHD thesis or on one things on my to-do list. Life is... strange...? My thesis goes slowly, so that's still my main goal. I still have way to many hobbies I'm interested in and, hence, I try to focus on the "important" one. And I added the cleaning goal, since my single-room apartment gets dirty really quick and I clean way to unregularly. Rewards If I collect enough of certain armor parts through-out, I'll get loot! Starting with the 'fundmental' trousers... Collecting 9 lower-body armor => 2 bottles of Whisky Collecting 11 lower-body armor + 9 upper-body armor => 2 Nintendo Switch games Collecting 12 lower-body armor + 11 upper-body armor + 8 head gear => A pair of Merell Vapor Gloves
