Welcome to round two! I am going to try this again. I have most of my challenges sorted I think (mostly just tracking), and so I wanted to share the first draft. Nothing like a deadline to get your behind in line. I stole @fleaball's chart (thanks for permission!), and have updated it with my own challenges. The theme of this month's challenge: Nourish Nourish body 1. Do something physical each day. I have the option of Volleyball, tennis, and/or yoga and will track that. I also occassionally take walks at work, and regularly walk the pup, but these are not included. - Side Goal: Yoga every damn day. With the added bonus of volleyball or tennis. The season for my indoor volleyball is picking up, so once both get started it would be 2x/week 2. Practice Pushups: I REALLY want to be able to do a push up. I will practice 3x a week. 3. Each as many veggies as possible. Goal is at least 50% Veggies for all of my meals. I am also working on getting local/sustainable meat and eggs for protein. 4. Cut the sugar: This is mostly for tracking. I have sugar, I lose the day, I don't have sugar I win! Nourish mind 1. Hour walk with pup: This is so good for me. The goal is 3x a week, in a seperate place than my street. Good for the pup too, and I hope to take advantage of fall 2. Magnesium: Daily 3. Declutter: I was going to do the minsgame, but I think I will aim to rehome at least one item a day for the challenge. I had my sink explode (well water explode from the pipes, but sinks exploding sounds more fun), and I had to get rid of a bunch of stuff. So that went well. I will aim to get stuff OUT of the house 1x/week 4. Defeat the snooze: one snooze, and one snooze only. Pass or fail, everyday. 5. Reading > TV: Choose to read a book versus watch tv 5x/week. I have a couple of good looking books that I really want to get through. Nourish bank account: In the wake of my car issues last challenge, I need to get on track with my savings and spending. The challenge (currently), is that I am stocking my freezer with local meat, and that is not the cheapest thing, but hopefully I can revisit my grocery budget and drop that down. 1. Touch base with finances: check my bank account/budget at least 5x/week. 2. Bring food to work: Both breakfast and lunch and snacks. This will be marked as complete if I do not buy anything at work. I am going to aim for 26/28 days of the challenge, with a couple of opportunities for something special (only while I use the money up on my card). 3. Only shop with list: This will only be tracked when I purchase something. If I added it to a list before I got in the store and only shop with said list I get a point, if I buy anything that is not on the list, I get nothing. 4. Online purchase after 24 hours: Same as above. If I purchase anything online that I have not considered for at least a day once it is added to my shopping cart I lose a point. There might be an exception as I am buying a small freezer portion of beef to split wiht my neighbor. I added it yesterday, but I don't know if it will still be there. I will update as I consider more over the next couple of days. I am currently using the spreadsheet to track, and am also going to make up a bullet journal spreadsheet. I am also going to set a reminder to track each day before bed. I might add back meditation, but less times a week. Everyday worked for the first couple of week last time, and then got away from me. I am also going to work on figuring out loot that doesn't detract from my decluttering goal.
Hello. This is my second challenge, and since I can't seem to decide which guild to join, gonna stay with Rebels for a little bit while! Xia Dong from Nirvana in Fire While I was trying to decide which guild to join by discussing with a fellow D&D player friend (spoiler: failed), there were--- archetypes of character being brought up. A Rogue with the lacquered veneer of Bard, a loner (?) human-favored-enemy Hunter/Ranger, a Bard with Fighter capabilities. Should I incorporate dance into it? Will I end up taking Body Combat? ...Anyway, finally decided it's too early in my fitness journey to even try deciding on a class/direction to pursue. It'll just distract. In the discussion the character/officer Xia Dong from chinese drama Nirvana in Fire was mentioned and I thought-- that's not a bad idea. Nimble, practical, slightly awkward/stiff but not in the least lacking common sense. Let's go for that. So far, this is what I'm going for: Dexterity-based class that can survive (thrive!) in both civilized world/ urban setting and wilderness. Ability scores composition would be DEX/INT/CHA (sometimes substituting CHA/WIS with INT) with CON before STR. Live sincerely, sensibly and practically-- but still socially flexible when required. GOALS I. Reduce Burden Excess girth limits movement. 163 cm/ 5'4", small frame. Starting weight 64.1 kg (141.3 lbs) at the beginning of Week 0, target weight 62 kg (136.6 lbs). Weigh everyday. Meal prep (enough for) 5-6 days out of a week. Count and log calories with MyFitnessPal. Aim for 1200 calories/day. Random Encounters: Socializing-proofing. Choose which eating-outs/feeding company are worth the calories and arrange intake around them. II. The Body is A Vehicle Stamina, flexibility, core strength and pliability. Build CON (stamina) Do cardio/walk around total of 3 hours per week (while listening to audiobooks/ lectures). Start preparing for bed 11.30 and sleep at 1 at the latest. Wake up around 7.30. Raise DEX & STR (flexibility and muscle strength). 60 minutes of Ballet Beautiful, 2 times per week. 1 session (45 minutes - 1 hour) of Bellydancing/Yoga for bellydancing basics per week. Learn to self-massage sore muscles. III. Necessary Evil That is The Capital Appearance and social skills. Take better care of appearance (nail, teeth, skin, hair). Get rid/ KonMari-away unloved/unsuitable clothes, accessories and makeup. Pick a social skill/etiquette book to read/summarize. Do concrete actions in order to interact better with people. Good luck and see you around!
