I HAVE ALLOWED MY BASIC HUMAN VEHICLE TO EXPERIENCE THE EMOTIONAL HIGHS EARNED IN THE LAST CHALLENGE. READ ABOUT IT HERE. THE BEST BLACKBOARD MONITORS ARE NOT EFFICIENT - THEY ARE EFFECTIVE. THEY DO NOT WIPE WELL, THEY WIPE THE CORRECT THING AT THE CORRECT TIME. SO I SHALL TRACK MY DIET VIA THE MEDIUM OF PHOTOGRAPH. I SHALL NOT LOG RUTHLESSLY AND EFFICIENTLY - I MERELY NEED TO KNOW WHAT IS ON THE PLATE, BEFORE IT ENTERS MY ORAL CAVITY. ALL WISE BEINGS PLAN. AS IN SELF-HELP BOOKS, SO SHALL IT BE UPON ENGLAND. I WILL PLAN ALL EVENING MEALS ON EACH SUNDAY, AND I WILL PLAN AT LEAST 2 OTHER MEALS PER WEEK (SNACKS CAN COUNT AS MEALS). I ENJOYED TRAINING ONCE PER WEEK FOR THE PREVIOUS CHALLENGE. I TRAINED 3 TIMES MORE OFTEN THAN PLANNED. SO THIS CHALLENGE I WILL TRAIN AT LEAST TWICE PER WEEK. FINALLY, I WILL AIM TO GAIN 100XP PER WEEK FOR DUOLINGO SPANISH. THAT IS ONCE PER DAY, PLUS THREE EXTRA SECTIONS. THERE WILL BE A BRIEF, PLEASANT CHEMICAL REACTION IN THE SIMPLISTIC ANIMAL BRAIN OF THE FIRST HUMAN THAT GUESSES THE MYSTERY BONUS TASK I HAVE SET FOR MYSELF.
UPDATED: APRIL 21ST/23RD EPIC QUEST Get down to 25% body fat CHALLENGE QUEST Drop 3 inches off body measurements Nourish CON +4 Track calories and stay under 150 grams of carbohydrates. I've started back up with MyFitnessPal. I know that I eat better when I am monitoring what actually goes into my mouth. So, I'll be tracking my calories every day (starting 4/23). I would like to keep my calorie intake at a reasonable level, and I feel that making sure my carbs stay under 150 grams a day will help that. Eat breakfast before leaving the house for work. I am always SO busy at work. If I don't manage to make a smoothie to take with my for breakfast, I usually don't eat until about 10 or 11, which pushes lunch back to about 2 or 3 and then I'm not hungry for dinner until 10 o'clock rolls around! So.....I will be eating breakfast before I leave my house for work in the morning. Not bringing a smoothie or something with me, I want to finish my breakfast before heading out. And I don't want to be rushing or scarfing down my food either. I want to be able to sit down and have breakfast. Eat Paleo for breakfast and lunch Monday thru Friday. Iâ€™ve tried Paleo before and it hasnâ€™t really worked out for me. My boyfriend is definitely not Paleo and I do almost all of our cooking. So I figure, if I only eat Paleo when Iâ€™m not eating with him, Iâ€™ll have a much better chance of succeeding. Reduce sugar intake. I was thinking about it this weekend, and I decided it will be more helpful to work on reducing my sugar than to go part-time paleo. I have a sugar problem. I absolutely love it! Once I start eating it, I can't stop. I'll be eliminating it gradually, as to avoid putting myself into shock! Week 1: Eliminate sugary beverages Weeks 2-3: Eliminate junk food Weeks 4-6: Drastically reduce carbs Train STA +2 | DEX +2 | STR +2 Workout 6 days a week everyday, for at least 30 minutes. I need to keep my body moving. Iâ€™ve been doing pretty good lately but I want to do better. I want to incorporate a lot of dancing, but I don't want to slack on strength training. I want to work in some kettlebell training, but body weight training is fine too. Improve splits. I miss being able to do the splits. Inspired by a few of my new Assassin friends, I have added a split component to my challenge. I will do stretches in the evenings that will help me to improve my splits by the end of this challenge. Starting photos will be posted tonight. I will post my improvements at the end of the challenge. Prepare WIS +2 | CHA +1 Clear out and prep my temple for painting. My boyfriend and I moved to a new place last spring. He has his office (he works from home most of the time) and we have our bedroom and other common rooms, but I don't have a place to relax and call my own. There is a room downstairs that we're using as a storage room. It's going to become my temple. Inara's shuttle is my inspiration. Though I will be working on the room most days, Iâ€™ll only be posting weekly update photos. My goal is to have the room ready to paint by the end of the challenge.
