It took some time but it’s only a failure if you quit and don’t try again…
So after beign away for quite some time I decided it’s time to pick up „Level Up Your Life“ again and do a respawn both working through Steve’s book again (but this time with a little more discipline) and also to get back to the rebellions forums. So here we go Assasin no more (for now at least) but looking to find a new profession that works with the goals and hobbys that developed while beign busy with life
The Challenge: „After the holidays Schaengel was eager to go back to Hogwarts…not because oft he learning but because of this special sport…Quidditch. Counting the day’s he could already here the voice in his head:“Ready?“…“BROOMS UP!“
I started playing Quidditch shortly after coming to Berlin. Normally I would spend the next 20 minutes justifiying why I spent my time playing and training for a „invented sport“ (the people always look funny when you point out that neraly all sports have been invented by someone ). But I’m sure I don’t have to do that here.
If you don’t know Quidditch here’s a quick introduction:
Want to see more try Mudbloods on Netflix
But back to the Challenge I’m playing as Keeper/Chaser at the moment but got it stuck in my head to try to play Beater as well sooner than later. Problem is you need more endurance for Beater than or Keeper and my endurance suffered over the last half-year…so this Challenge will tryto get me in a better shape in general. Another focus of this Challenge will be Mindfullnes and getting in control of my own brain…so here are the Quests:
Quest 1: Occlumency
Harry needed to learn to keep the Dark Lord out of his mind… I need to learn to keep stress and anxiety out of mine. So like Harry did (or more like should have done) it’s time to practice Occlumency. Since I don’t have a Snape to teach me (thank god ) apps will have to do.
Goal: Do one mindfullnes exercise per day ( Passing when done 20 mindfullnes excercises)
Goal Two: Try both Headspace and Calm and decide whats right form e at the end oft he Challenge
Quest 2: Hogwarts Feast
One questions that was bugging me always when reading Harry Potter was how did they all stay sporty and helathy with all the feasts, all the good food and no sport in school whatsoever? Did they have a diet magic? Andi f so where can I get it?
I would like to get back to eating more good food. Inspired by @Jonesy I’ll start by just tracking the food that I eat fort he next 4 weeks
Goal: Track what you eat daily (Passing with 20 days tracked)
Goal Two: Try 2 new low-carb recipes.
Quest 3: Brooms up
Harry was a good Quidditch player because he new how to fly instantly. Sadly our brooms don’t fly (yet ) so I have to rely on my feet when playing Quidditch.
I want to be a better quidditch player so I have to do a lot of training. And tob e better than the rest I’ll have to do something every day. I already starte das part of my challenges for Level Up your Life to do „The sally“ challenge ones per day with push ups, squats and planks so to keep motivation up I’ll take that and add a little.
Goal: Do 1 set of Sallys every day (passing with 20 days done)
Bonus Goal: Do 200 Crunches
Quest 4: Getting back in the Game
This Quest isn’t Hogwarts related (because I don’t know how connect it…open for suggestions… )
So to keep up the momentum I have at the moment I need to get the support systems back in order and that’s what this Quest is about.
Goal One: Post an update at least every second day (passed with 14 posts)
Goal Two: Spread Quove, follow and support 2 other rebels (passed with 20 posts in total)
Goal Three: Back tot he Muggels, do two adult things per week (passed with 8 adult tasks done)
