I am a brand new NF Rebel and I want to use my first challenge to establish healthy habits to build on. I am an accountant and every January through April I go through Tax Season. During that time I generally work 10-12 hours days 7 days a week. I want to improve my fitness and lifestyle habits to make it through that grueling time of year with less stress and better job performance. When Iâ€™m not bean-counting, I am a goalie for a recreational womenâ€™s ice hockey team. Having played college hockey I consider myself to be a fairly accomplished athlete but I know there is much more I can do to improve my game. 'Much more' includes better fitness and a healthier diet. I tend to be an Eager Beaver so Iâ€™m trying to stick to a few small changes instead of biting off more than I can chew. Main Quest: To complete the ladder drill without stopping by the end of the hockey season (The ladder drill for Ice hockey goalies involves increasing reps of different skating skills. You start by doing one shuffle to the right then one shuffle to the left. Next, two shuffles to the right, two to the left. You continue up to five and do that for each of three more skating skills. Strength, technique and endurance are key.) Side Quests: Diet and Fitness Goals: 2 Bodyweight work outs per week Move up to using 10lbs for 15 reps for dumbbell pulls by week 5 No fast food! Life Goal: Save $100 for family Christmas gifts Motivation: Completing this challenge will get me closer to accomplishing my main quest as well as establish healthy habits to build on.
