    Annyshay Leaves the Great Plateau

    Annyshay approached the bridge with some trepidation. There was a large hole in the middle. Annyshay wondered how the bridge was still standing, but she didn't stay to wonder long. She backed up and ran with all her might, launching into the air. Her fingers scrabbled at the rock on the far side of the bridge, vying desperately for purchase on the slippery face. Her fingers eventually caught, and she was able to climb to safety on the far side of the bridge. She looked around. With no monsters in site, she jogged toward the ancient ruined temple.

    Thanks Elize. I've really been enjoying the swimming. Maybe winter's not the best time for wet hair though.

    Annyshay Leaves the Great Plateau

    Annyshay threw one of her new bombs at the wall of stone in front of her. It exploded, leaving the remnants of a ruined arch. She walked through it only to see one of the guardians (the ancient machines scattered all over the plateau) begin to glow blue and pink. Annyshay knew longer to stay and stare in awe. She ran and jumped over a ruined wall. As long as the machine could not "see" her she was safe, but whenever she was within range of the machine, a red target appeared on her back in something that looked like a laser. She ran, ducking around corners of the ruins until she was finally out of the range of the blasted machine. She stopped to catch her breath, seeing a ruined bridge ahead and a large monster to her left. To the right was a large cliff that she would have to pick her way down. She decided to take her chances with the bridge.

    Annyshay: Endgame

    Challenge Wrap Up Mindful Moments - I feel like I did a great job here. I've established good habits that are flexible enough not to get in the way. I'm going to try to track slightly differently next challenge but generally aim to maintain this goal. PT Exercises - There's been a lot of ups and downs here, but I finally have a diagnosis and am on my way to healing my foot, hopefully. I'm going to be expanding this section to include other types of movement in the future, as I'm finally finding that I want to see what my body is capable of on a more regular basis. Self Care - I'm really glad that I focused on this for a while, and I feel like my mood is starting to lift up since I've been more focused on being good to myself. YWCA - I joined a gym for the first time in my adult life and have been using both the weight machines and the pool fairly regularly for a few weeks, so I want to keep solidifying good habits there. Challenge Status - PASSED DING! Level Up!!!

    It's important to keep a level head on ones shoulders while exploring the Wild. Annyshay will endeavor to do this by continuing the following goals: Mindful Eats - Annyshay will make sure that she takes time around her meals to check in with herself and the experience of eating. This takes the form of saying grace, sitting at the table, avoiding distractions, focusing on flavors and textures, and other means of mindful eating. Careful Moves - Annyshay is rehabbing an injury to her right foot that she can't remember how she sustained. She will continue to work on moving in ways that don't aggravate her injury as well as following her PT exercises. Grateful Wins - Annyshay has a tendency to prepare for the worst without truly celebrating the wins that she has each day. She will make time to consciously reflect on the wins that she's had and express gratitude for the ways that she is supported through life.
