  1. I'm going to set up a challenge that mostly doesn't require the computer and internet connection because we'll be on vacation for the last two weeks of the challenge!! I'll probably have my computer, but based on prior trips, I may not be have a decent internet connection unless we are in port. The goal is to draw 6 x week number cards from a mixed deck ... and then do them. So, week 1, that's 6 cards. And week 5 .... that's 30! If I don't clear the cards for the week, I have to pay a forfeit to church or charity to resurrect me. There's no guarantee that the resurrection spell will work correctly, and I could end up cursed or undead or ?? I can use the Goodberry spell (one per Omega 3 rich food eaten) to undo the damage of one card missed. Cardio: terrain cards Strength: monster/villain cards Balance/flexibility: yoga, BOSU ball workout, any other agility related thing I can think of Nutrition: Omega-3 rich foods (cast the "Goodberries" spell for each one) Social: Place and encounter cards Omega-3s: Itchy skin and thinning hair .... hoping that it is just because 1) I have gotten older and 2) I have been eating more animal-based fats than vegetable-based fats. And ... Alaska. Hello .... let's eat some salmon!! A friend of mine from the SCA commented that she needs to figure out how to "people" again, and I agree. Teaching doesn't engage the small talk and social interactions, and I need to practice before I get on a boat for an 10-day cruise full of strangers. I think I can mostly do this with my Pathfinder and MTG Forgotten Realms cards, plus the ones that I am making. HUM >>> might get creative and actually make my own "playing" cards for the "game"??? And .... I might pick up some tokens to represent healing potions. For someone who doesn't currently play D & D, I'm looking at a lot of game props to help with this. I'm still in search of the dragon. The dragon is a lifestyle and set of habits to support health and a "normal" body weight and BF%. Not quite there, but last challenge, I pretty much coasted on habits and didn't gain weight. Didn't lose it or reduce BF% .... so that means I AM getting close. It just needs some minor adjustments.
  2. Inspired by @Elastigirl and her declaration of a prestige class, I think it’s time to make a change and switch not only classes but themes. This one holds the promise of costumes and actual weapons ….. I’m going to be a Forester, counting this as a prestige class based on the Rangers. A combination of trail hiking/running, ranged weapons, protecting the Forest, and dispensing the Crown’s justice (and mercy). Part SCA and part D&D/Pathfinder. After 30 years of hanging around the fringes of the Society for Creative Anachronism, I finally became a sustaining member a couple of years ago. It’s been a bit of a rocky start since my local group make a bunch of frost giants look welcoming. Seriously, no one can turn a cold shoulder like these guys. But, I’ve been doing my thing and persisting. They’ve been acting like it’s the beginning of Macbeth, but I’ve worked around them and made other friends … And suddenly they needed someone to step in as president (known as a seneschal in SCA terms), and I agreed to do it - against my better judgement - at least temporarily (since I may be moving again …. More later.) While I await the actual appointment by the Crown, I am going on a pilgrimage to southern Europe. As it happens, we’ve been planning this cruise for months … and it does just happen to end in Rome. We already have tickets to spend a day at the Vatican. So …. It’s a pilgrimage. Now, this cruise could be an excuse to go back to old habits. Eat a bunch of refined carbs - especially chocolate. Sit around on lounge chairs all day, getting sauced while I read trashy novels. BUT NO!! I’ve decided that this is a perfect time to take care of myself and treat myself to lots of fresh fruits and veggies and good fish!!! So, my eating goals start today, pro-rated as necessary. I’m going to strive to eat more freggies than I did last challenge and average 28 per week. And add that I will eat an average of 2 servings of fish per week (not fried!). That’s it for the nutrition front. Exercise-wise …. I figure a Forester, like any good Ranger, will cover ground and be ready to deal with whatever is lurking in the bushes. I already have a solid cardio foundation and don’t need an excuse to keep running, but I’ll add a bit of forestry flavor and commit to walking outside AND capturing portals and territory in Ingress daily. I can do that even on the cruise since we have daily shore excursions. Plus … some sort of strength training OR weapons training twice per week. I’m leaving it a bit vague because weather will have a huge impact on what I do each week. If the weather is good, I can get to archery practice. And if the weather starts turning really fair, we can start axe and knife (and spear) throwing again outside. Finally, the (Royal) Forester usually dispensed the King’s Law within the area of his or her writ. And I need to read through at least 5 handbooks in order to get familiar with the rules of my new role. So … the goal here is just to print them, read them, and make notes so that I'm ready for our first dance practice in March.
  3. Hi all, I have started and failed two challenges in preparation for going on a cruise vacation in December. Well, its December and obviously that plan didn't work. I have spent the past few days mulling over this predicament. I feel like the time for me to do something about this is now and not to put it off until we come back from vacation. That said, we will be on a cruise ship with (hopefully) yummy food and drink. Does anyone have any advice on how to stick to a paleo/primal way of eating while still enjoying vacation? This is exacerbated by the fact that I love food and cooking and am looking forward to trying new foods. I am losing my taste for bread, so I am not worried about that, but would like to enjoy an occasional dessert and to try cocktails. TIA
