  3. At the beginning of this challenge, I will be finishing up classes and internship, and sending out the paperwork to get my massage therapist license. Thus, I will transition from an academic-based schedule to a “holy shit I’m actually doing this for real” schedule. Let’s do some things! Lift the things! Massage the people! Get a paycheck!

  4. The main goal here is to survive various life stressors, keep (what is left of) my sanity until I get through the parts-that-suck, and make the most of the parts-that-rock. Of course, it wouldn’t be fun if all my life stressors didn’t encompass both suck/rockitude. These are:SchoolGymRelationship(s) I’m still a fan of the event/task/routine setup I started, so I’ll stick with that again this challenge. [Routine]Training: Weightlifting at least 3x week.Conditioning: Walk 1x/week. Non-class/Non-internship massage 1x/week.Eating: Cook most meals.

[starting Stats]Nope. Lost the tape measure and I don’t care right now!
  5. It’s strange how introducing just one new life change starts a whole series of other adjustments and changes. Near the end of the last challenge, I started massage therapy school, and I feel like I’ve barely had time to breathe sometimes since then. The introvert meter is being heavily taxed nearly every day. At night, I prep my lunch, pack my bags, and set out my clothes for the following day. I get up at 6:00 am. That’s right. I’m awake before the sun is, and it’s bullshit. But so far, I've been able to make it work. Anyway, this challenge is basically for me to attempt to keep my head above water and ramble about school and training and whatnot. I’m going to follow the same format as my last one, with routine, task, and event/calendar lists. [Routine] Training: Weightlifting at least 3x week. Conditioning: Practice massage outside of class 3x+/week. Walk at least 1x/week. Eating: 2 meals/day. Cleaning: Just fucking do it. Studying: Complete all class prep the day before. Bonus: Stay 2 or more days ahead. [Tasks] Organize and remove unused clothing. Figure out a source of income. Try a dance class. Read a book. Draw a thing. Set up broccoli&barbells. Make a post on broccoli&barbells. Go to a yoga class. Set up extra bedroom to accommodate massage table. Put together massage kit. [Events] 2/23 - Challenge Start. 2/26 - My birthday!

  6. chammy is rebuilding 2014 was a bit of a roller coaster ride, with some incredible highs and extreme lows. However, it’s a new year - so I’m wiping the proverbial slate clean (and my measurement spreadsheet) and starting anew. Over the next 6 weeks, I will be working towards laying the foundation for a new future. Instead of the more traditional challenge structure - I will have a short list of items/habits to maintain for regular “everyday” life, and a list of tasks to complete and scheduled events. [Routine]Training: Weightlifting 4-5x/week. Mobility 15-20 minutes.Conditioning: Walk 15 miles/week with @Haikoo. Eating: 2 meals/day.Cleaning: Just fucking do it.

  7. I took a longer-than-intended break from exercising last challenge, and this has been created to address that. I’ve simplified my goals slightly, and removed some of the extra bloat - mostly the items that have become habits, or I have accepted the fact that my focuses are elsewhere for now. chammy reboots and transitions Lose 6cm from full body measurements.

  8. Measurement loss appears to have slowed down a bit more, so I’ve adjusted that goal to slightly edge out the results of the previous challenge. I’ve been a little more lax diet-wise the last month or two, so that’s likely part of the change in rate of loss. I’ve also been skipping and making up workouts more than I like.

  12. Simple enough challenge to start the new year. Boop! Main Quest: Be a noticebly better chammy by my birthday (Feb 26th)! Goals: GO to crossfit. It doesn't matter how many times, just fuckin go. GO to class. Every session, unless I'm really just dieing. GO to work. Every shift - if the spice shop does in fact put me to "on call" without regular hours, find another part time job.
  13. This is a challenge. This is the Main Quest: Lose 6-9 inches from the “big 3” measurements – Bust, Waist, Hips – by the end of the year. These are diet and fitness goals: Some form of exercise (bodyweight) 3 times per week. Cook everything. Exception: I can go out to eat if someone else pays. Wake up by 7:30am each day, except Saturdays This is a life side quest: Draw 2 hours a day, at least 5 times per week. Note: In-class time does not count. What’s happened since last time? I drove a lot on a road trip, and the school semester started. Our roommate moved out, as she found a place that was better for her to stay. Then, on 9/6, my husband lost his job. We’ve cut back on pretty much everything, and have yet to eat out since due to trying to live on what little is left in our bank accounts. Life is stressful, so I’m not concerned with sticking to a diet outside of make-it-at-home. Why are you in the Assassin’s guild this time? Just pick one. Due to above stated financial hardship, my rejoining of the crossfit world will have to continue to be delayed. I will be contacting my box before the end of the month to request my membership be put on hold for the month of October. As such, I will be doing nearly exclusively bodyweight workouts – so Assassin is the best fit for now. Also, I won’t pick just one guild. You can’t make me. =P
  14. This is a challenge. This is the Main Quest: Lose 6-9 inches from the “big 3” measurements – Bust, Waist, Hips – by the end of the year.

This is a life side quest: Finish teaching myself the rest of my German book, and place out of German II. This is a fitness side quest: Complete mobility work for 30 minutes, 3 times per week. These are measurements:
  15. I acquired (and have been playing through) the new Tomb Raider. I’ve been enjoying the game so much, I’ve been inspired to base this challenge off it, and Lara Croft. I am making the swap to the Warriors! I’m focusing mostly on lifting heavy things, and since I was successful with my most recent challenge, I decided it was time to change things up. Train: Stronglifts. 3 times per week. Spark challenge. 5 times per week. (www.fitocracy.com/spark/) Eat: Cooking. 1 new low-cost high-yield recipe per week. Discover: Raid tombs.
