Placeholder, because I have a marathon [I did not train enough for] in three days. Goal is to finish my GymnasticBodies Foundation One course (because I've been slacking on my Hollows) while working on those elusive Handstands and some Tumbling (both modules I also purchased). My gym membership just ended and I'm going full-Assassin this challenge. BUILDING THE ASSASSIN BODY Log GB exercises (foundation core and upper body, handstand, and movement) once a week, kettlebells once a week. SKILLS BJJ twice a week, 21-day Dry Fire Practice modules. CHARM I joined the 30-day Art Of Charm challenge, and I have 10 modules to complete in it. LIFESTYLE Slowly working on becoming antifragile, and I'm starting with getting rid of trash around the apartment.
2016 was a very interesting year for me. I had victories. I had losses. I am still here. However the year has made me realise that what I really want to be is antifragile. I don't want to be broken by mountains or go around them. I want to go through them. One of the biggest problems that occured last year was that I let my health go, both mentally and physically. I struggle to do basic things to take care of myself. With that in mind, my goals for the first challenge of 2017 are: Each challenge gets 100 XP to spend XP POSSIBLE XP EARNED PROGRESS NOTES & BONUSES & PREREQUISITES 100 0 0% Challenge One - January 8 - February 4 100 0 0% 1.1 Brush hair once and teeth twice a day 15 0% Total of 28 times this must be complete 1.2 Walk the dogs four times a week 30 0% 16 walks 1.3 Only eat out twice a week 30 0% 8 eat out meals (this includes buying lunch, or junk dinners) 1.4 Spend a minimum of 5 minutes with the barbell two days a week 25 0% 8 sessions
Hello and welcome to my second challenge! I am a Slayer in training, looking to continue the momentum I gathered in my first challenge. Because I aim to be an assassin, my main goals this time are to continue moving, start bodyweight training, and keep working on my food. Main Quest: Right now, my main quest is to become anti-fragile by building up my STR, CON, and DEX. Quest 1: Walk 6 days per week, starting with 21 minutes and increasing by 1 minute each week. A = 35 days, 26 minutes in week 6 (+3 STA) B = 25 days, 23 minutes in week 6 (+2 STA) C = 19 days, 20 minutes in week 6 (No stats) Quest 2: Do a bodyweight workout 3 days per week. I am aiming to start with the Recruit workout from the NF Academy, preceded by the TMNT mobility warm-up (because itâ€™s fun!), and followed by an as-yet-to-be-determined cool-down. A caveat: Due to some minor foot and Achilles tendon issues, I am currently limited to doing no squats, lunges, planks, downward dogs, or any such movements that put strain on my Achilles tendons or are otherwise high impact. The doctor says that should only be for a week or two and I am still allowed to walk as normal. So I will focus on the upper body exercises until released to do the full workout. A = 3x/week for 5 weeks (+3 STR) B = 3x/week for 4 weeks (+2 STR) C= 3x/week for 3 weeks (No stats) Quest 3: Practice some kind of mindfulness/flexibility workout 6 days a week. Mostly this will be yoga, but I hope to also try some Tai Chi this challenge, just for fun. I also practice (and facilitate) conscious dance and so I will sometimes do that instead of yoga. On the bodyweight workout days, this will mostly just be slow stretching and meditation, with more dynamic workouts on the other days. A = 6x/week for 5 weeks (+3 DEX, +2 WIS) B = 5x/week for 4 weeks (+2 DEX, +2 WIS) C = 4x/week for 3 weeks (No stats) Quest 4: Keep a daily food journal. A = Food logged 6x/week, 5 weeks (+2 CON, +1 CHA) B = Food logged 5x/week, 4 weeks (+1 CON, +1 CHA) C = Food logged 4x/week, 3 weeks (No stats) Life Quest: Get out of my house and do something active with actual, live people at least 3 times during the challenge â€“ e.g. a yoga class, a conscious dance class, a Tai Chi class Pass/Fail, (+1 CHA) Motivation: I donâ€™t want to be limited by my chronic illness or my physical fitness level. I want to become anti-fragile so that I can do the things I want. As a child, I used to love being active - running, jumping, climbing, pretending to be a superhero or a spy or a bionic woman. I want to regain that joy in moving my body, that ability to play.
