  1. MY FRIENDS, WHAT IS UP I've kinda taken a bit of time away from the forums in my last challenge - October's been a busy month full of commitments and fun and AWESOMENESS. TL;DR I'm still actively living my best life and after some time away - and away from everything to reset and recharge - literally tho', I'm currently spending a week at a little coastal New England cabin and it's PERFECT - I'm ready to slam the reset button on my goals and GET GOING AGAIN. More details to come but I wanted to get this post going 'cause I'm HYPE. Goals will SURELY include: - GYM TIME SHAAR YOU BUTTHEAD. I NEED to get back into this routine. 3 times a week, zero excuses. - Get outside! Log 3 adventure hikes this challenge before it gets butts cold out! - I have two open credit cards right now, and my goal is to pay them both down before 2020 hits. Bigger win if I don't have to use any part of a holiday bonus to do this. I want to be able to start directing way more money into my savings account and I've been super aggressive with my debt so far, I just need to stay on target through the holidays too!! - READ MORE. While I was away for a week I took my Kindle with me and started reading one of my favorite old books, Lost Souls by Poppy Z Brite... it's so good, it totally digs my aesthetic of like 90's era queer southern gothic vampire culture (I know that sounds weird but I too am weird) and I want to re-finish this book and start another one! Goal is to finish this book and buy another one, and finish it too!! - MORE VIDEO GAMES! I haven't actually been gaming a lot lately - I know, shocker! - because October has been so busy! But now I'm back home and with much less commitment going into November so I want to stream some games and show you guys what I play!! I have a Twitch account at twitch.tv/loiire/ and will stream at least 3 gaming sessions over the course of this challenge. I'll announce ahead of time when I'm doing the live streams, but I'll also post the finished video on my thread so people can watch afterwards. What games will I choose?!!?!/1?! WE'LL SEE~ :3 Ok more later, ciaociao for nownow my pals~ <3
  2. And another round begins. So a little bit about me. I joined the forum about eight weeks ago and did my first six week challenge. I learned a lot, even though I didn't do so hot on the stated goals. I am currently attending a University, which is a lot of fun. Challenge one: Climb or not to climb. During the last challenge, I ended up starting to rock climb at the campus gym, and absolutely love it and the people. I went as often as I could, and generally more then I should have. Unfortunately, this led to me hurting my elbow with what I believe is tendonitis from over use. I did some research and asked around the forums and that is pretty much what the general concensus was. My problem is willpower. I go to the wall and I will be there for five hours, pushing myself and hanging out with people, when I should probably only be there for two. Sometimes I will go to work out, get there, and then decide I want to climb more then do pushups. This is pretty much what has kept my elbow from completely healing up to this point. So the challenge here is to climb no more than three times a week (generally Sun/Tues/Thr) and to climb for no more than two hours every time. Attribute: +3 CON; +1 WIS Challenge two: If you would be so kind as to GET THE HELL UP! At the beginning of the last challenge, I was getting up at six thirty, and I loved it. I felt so productive, much more cheerful, and overall more accomplished. However, when I was sick, I decided I needed as much sleep as possible and long story short, it’s now a struggle to wake up at eight. So the challenge here is to move the alarm clock back thirty minutes every week, until I am waking up at six thirty, and then continue to wake up at six thirty every day, weekends included. This will also help be cook breakfast everyday, which has become a problem. Attribute: +2 STA ; +1 CHA Challenge three: Since you are up... I want to get back to work out three times a week. Ever since I started climbing, it’s harder to motivate myself into doing a workout vs. climbing. One I love and the other is “mehâ€. So the challenge here is to start working out MWF mornings when I wake up. Attribute: +3 STR ; +1 STA Life quest: Three years is too short I did a lot of research into rock climbing when I started and one of the common things I found was that improper technique will carry you for about three years before injury occurs. I would like to avoid injury at all cost, because obvious reasons. So the challenge here is to learn proper crimping technique and to stretch for at least ten minutes before even thinking of climbing. Attribute: +4 CON Grading​: One of the things I learned last challenge was to set up how I am goin to grade myself at the beginning, because otherwise, it becomes guess work. So here is how I will be grading myself throughout the challenge. A special note is that this challenge is going to fall over two separate test weeks and thanksgiving (which means traveling), so certain challenges will be more out of three weeks then six. Challenge one grading: I will give myself a point for every time I go to the wall that is not over exerting. If I go a fourth time a week or if I stay for longer then two hours, I loose one point. However, I know during test weeks, I will not be able to go as regular, if at all. Also, I am going home over Thanksgiving, which means I won't have access to the rock wall. So this challenge will be graded out of three weeks. That means there are a total of nine points. There are no bonus points for going during a test week. That seems slightly counter productive.​ Challenge two grading: For every day I get up at the correct time, I will give myself a point. For everyday I sleep in later, I loose four points​. This is so I work hard to keep the habit, and any breaking that habit sets me back several days until it's natural. This means I can get a total of forty-two points Challenge three grading: Every workout is worth one point, regardless of what I do or how long. Ever time I don't go IN THE MORNING​, I loose two points. I am not sure how this is going to work with tests and Thanksgiving. I am confident I can continue this over Thanksgiving, but not necessarily test weeks. So there are a total of eighteen points I can get. Life Challenge grading: It will be hard to grade technique, so I will be grading the stretching instead and trust I practice good technique. Every stretching session is worth one point, and failing to do it will loose me one point.​ Since this challenge mirrors my first one, the grading scale will be the same. Nine possible points with no bonus for going during test weeks. ​​ TL;DR Challenge one: Don’t climb more than three times a week, and only for two hours each time Attr: +3 CON; +1 WIS Challenge two: Wake up at six thirty each day Attr: +2 STA ; +1 CHA Challenge three: Go to the gym three times a week in the morning Attr: +3 STR ; +1 STA Life Quest: Avoid injury through proper technique and stretching Attr: +4 CON
