  1. Mizbrek Visits the Hearthstone Tavern

    Thanks! Doing my best! A decent day yesterday overall. I think allowing myself maintenance calories on weekends is a huge help. It gives me a limit, but allows me some variance. I made better choices yesterday because I knew I only had x calories, like not having dessert after dinner, but still didn't feel like I had cheated myself. Battlecry - Out of the bedroom by 5:30, in bed with devices off by 10:30 (weekdays) - Weekend, so no morning point available. Managed to get everything off by 10:30 though. +1 Discover - Read 10 mins daily (bed reading counts, book or paper/magazine) - Spent a good chunk of time on the back porch reading The Way of Kings. Enjoying it! +1 Divine Shield - 20/60 housework - Did this! +1 Inspire - Post/read Rebellion daily - Read a few, but not enough for bonus. +1 Poisonous - 2/4 drink rule - Drank my 4! +1 Adapt - 500-1000 calorie deficit (maintenance on weekends) - Ended up a couple hundred under maintenance! +1 Point Count 58 Points

    Sounds like a tasty recipe! May have to try that. I've been doing breakfast burritos, which work well for me, but always look for new recipes!

    Pretty solid day for a weekend! Stayed on task and was even in deficit instead of maintenance! Battlecry - Out of the bedroom by 5:30, in bed with devices off by 10:30 (weekdays) - Weekend, so no points available here. Discover - Read 10 mins daily (bed reading counts, book or paper/magazine) - Listened to a lot of Welcome to Night Vale, which counts. +1 Divine Shield - 20/60 housework - Technically missed this, but made up for it today, so counting it. +1 Inspire - Post/read Rebellion daily - Read a few, but not enough for bonus. +1 Poisonous - 2/4 drink rule - Was actually under 4 on this day, so works out! +1 Adapt - 500-1000 calorie deficit (maintenance on weekends) - Less than maintenance! +1 Point Count 52 Points
  4. This time, Rhovaniel really does find the Dúnedain

    I think this is a GREAT carrot! One suggestion I'd throw out too, if you don't want to go with the Audible subscription in the end, one that's helped me a lot (and also helped with anxiety) is podcasts. There are so many wonderful ones, and more than a few that are basically audio-books until themselves. I've been enjoying Welcome to Night Vale lately, which is basically a fake community radio show for a weird town full of Angels, demons, and secret government conspiracies (the PTA is run my a sentient malevolent cloud). Ms. Miz loves one called the Bright Sessions, which is basically a psychologist for the X-Men. And if you like history there's a guy called Dan Carlin which puts out audio books for free on various historical topics, including a 6 part, 12h series on WW1 and its impact on modern history. Plus just about any topic you can think of. My favourite one lately is a pair of girls who drink and recap Stargate episodes! Lots of options like that too!

    Yeah I think we have those on hand so might try that!
  6. Jon Firestar Runs a Lot and Preps for Sparta, pt 1

    Well done! You're putting all of us in Charlie to shame!
  7. Nymeria plays the Game of Thrones

    That's a good one! I always feel beat up after I build IKEA stuff so I get it!

    Bit of a rough one yesterday but still on track! Altered some goals a little bit, semi-broke one, but got permission from my Challenge Arbiter to do so, so I think I'm okay. And dropped a pound today! Back down to Onederland, 198.9 today. So still on a good track. Battlecry - Out of the bedroom by 5:30, in bed with devices off by 10:30 (weekdays) - Got up in good time yesterday, but as it was a weekend, stayed up later. So, +1. Discover - Read 10 mins daily (bed reading counts, book or paper/magazine) - Read a few articles from the Economist. +1 Divine Shield - 20/60 housework - Did a bit of laundry work. +1 Inspire - Post/read Rebellion daily - Read a few, but not enough for bonus. +1 Poisonous - 2/4 drink rule - Used a variance on this one, but only by one drink. So no points, but not counting this as a fail. Adapt - 500-1000 calorie deficit (maintenance on weekends) - To maintenance yesterday, as it was a weekend day. +1 Point Count 47 Points
  9. It’s a HELA good challenge for Terra

    Can't believe I missed yours going up! Following! Great goals as always. Love that you have read a certain book in there. It sounds like a good one. Been thinking of picking up something similar myself.

    Glad to have you! Hope I can play some good games! Having a bit of a rough couple days anxiety wise. I have good moments, but then something small happens and triggers it. This morning it was issues with my transit card. Annoyingly I can't resolve them until tonight, or possibly tomorrow, so that's hanging over me a bit. It'll be fine but it's just triggering for my anxiety and I was feeling SO good this morning. Ah well. Otherwise yesterday was pretty good. Battlecry - Out of the bedroom by 5:30, in bed with devices off by 10:30 (weekdays) - Because I slept in after the night before, missed getting up in time. Still managed a workout though, just not as long a one as I'd like. +1 Discover - Read 10 mins daily (bed reading counts, book or paper/magazine) - Read some Chronicle on the train. It was lovely. +1 Divine Shield - 20/60 housework - Picked up the car from my parents! Also took out the garbage. +1 Inspire - Post/read Rebellion daily - Done with bonus point again! +2 Poisonous - 2/4 drink rule - Stuck to this last night. +1 Adapt - 500-1000 calorie deficit (maintenance on weekends) - I didn't note the deficit, but it was around 800 or so. +1 Point Count 42 Points

    Also, love this idea. May need to steal this for my next challenge.

    Every season is pumpkin spice season if you're dedicated enough. That reminds me, must look up a recipe for pumpkin spice itself. Going to add some to an ale I'm planning to brew this weekend.

    Totally fair! I definitely enjoy doing the gameifying! Coming up with that is half the fun for me!

    That sounds like the time I won the competitive for being least competitive. I only punched like 3 people to win that competition!

    Great goals and theme as always! Love the bit about whiskey and leather. Certainly lit a fire under me! Q though, what are Be Happy sessions? Sounds useful!
