  1. Ahoy-hoy friends! Welcome to my first challenge of the new decade! Starting things off with a mix of every-day goals (teeth, bedtime) and by-the-end-of-the-challenge goals (ride my bike, pay off the credit card, chip away at subject readings for class), the last set of 'goals' are really more like 'get-back-to-pre-holiday-weirdness' (gymming twice a week, going to Auslan practice, DnD-ing). Extrapolation of the goals + GIFs!: Bedtime- go to bed at 10pm each night. Have a warning timer at 9.30 to remind me to take my meds and get myself sorted. Buddy-goal: charge my phone on the drawers, so I don't look at it in the night, and so when the alarm goes off I have to get up to turn it off. Ride- I have a new bike-to-work buddy. Ideally I would ride to/from work with her twice a week, but to start things off for success I am aiming for five rides total. These can be split into 'in' on one day and 'home' on a different day as I build up my leg muscles. I am fairly sure after my last ride that my brakes are actually constantly on, so I will check that tomorrow, if they are I may not be as unfit as I feel... I hope it's the brakes haha. Credit card- this was accidentally still linked to one of our food delivery services, and we managed to wrack up $220 in orders and interest before I figured it out. I've chipped away at it, but want to clear the remaining $120 before the end of this challenge. Teeth- now knowing that SLS is what makes toothpaste feel like it is fire, I will buy a brand of toothpaste that doesn't have it in the ingredients, and try again to build this habit. If that means I'm brushing with baby bubblegum toothpaste, so be it. Gym - twice a week. Git swole. 2020 goals are to drop bodyweight to 70kg, then lift: Deadlift 140, Squat 105, Bench 70 (2:1.5:1). This will only happen if I am consistent about going to the gym (holidays to America excepted). Sign/Auslan- this kicks back off next week after the holiday break. I did a little practice over the holidays, but it mainly consisted of watching the live news coverage of the bushfires and trying to follow along with the Auslan interpreter (beardy translator is my favourite, content warning for the faint of heart... our country is on fire) DnD- I haven't been throwing myself whole-heartedly into playing lately, and the reason is a bit silly... Duunack (my half-orc barbarian) made a deal with a devil, which (of course) has led to a bunch of chaos and put the party on the road to hell (literally, we're visiting Dis). I was carrying a lot of guilt about it IRL, in fact I cried about it yesterday while discussing it with Mr. After our chat I feel much better and am focusing on playing the game for the game, not to try and /win/ (oh hello, perfectionist). TLDR, here's my bujo~
  2. INTRO 'Olo, you lot! Welcome to my quiet little corner. I am Haniya (pronounced Hun-nee-yah) a Nerdy, Sporty, DND[currently watching Critical Role]loving, Comic book enthusiast with a penchant for arts, Video games, Books, Disney movies, music and Mystery Murder shows [Stranger Things, Sherlock, Killing Eve, The Umbrella Academy and Elementary anyone?] also Neil Gaimann because good omens is a fantastic show and is worth fangirling about. Today I have entered as a ranger to challenge myself. Hopefully, my experiment will help me build my habits and my body. I feel like my true self best fits in this sneaky, lean, strong and dangerously cool class because strength and stamina are the two things that I ideally want and we all wish to master. Hence, here I am and here I go! BACK STORY TIME: WE all know how our health is the MOST important thing in the world--physical, emotional and mental as well--especially when you've been obese half your childhood. Its hard to get back on that health horse when like half of your house hold isnt primed for it at all. Regaining my good healthy self has been a massive struggle, no less a bumpy roller coaster ride of high and lows. Well, I've been at it for quite a while with the NERDS--actually listening and enjoying the company of the people--thus, naturally, I come running back to thine fine health, happiness institute of fittitude! [Gedit] Even though i hate typing, i do try to update as often as I can. Well, anyways! I live in Pakistan (south east asia) where carbohydrate is as important and as common as air and I am not joking! OUR DIET AND CUISINE IS JUST FULL OF IT AND EVEN IF YOU TRIED, YOU JUST CANT SHAKE IT OFF AND IGNORE IT! BUT. I. WANT. TO. CHANGE. MYSELF. I DON'T WANT TO BE ADDICTED ANYMORE AND THAT'S MY MAIN MISSION HERE! BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY! I will go slow this time and not overwhelm myself as much as I am prone to so I'll just go over the basics of my mission. Cus. I. Can. And. I. Love. To. Sound. Very. Official. OH, SHALL WE MOVE TOWARDS MY BASE OF OPERATIONS?! *drumroll* OP 1: Take control of the wheel, agent! As the new agent of SHIELD, it is your duty to physically take care of what you put in your body. Filling in the shoes of Natasha Romanoff is going to be a hard job, recruit, so I suggest you take those shoes seriously and work hard! *There we go, guys. Big shoes to fill* So, clean eating and portion control is the key. Refined sugar and fried stuff is your ENEMY. IT'S YOUR HYDRA! You must defeat the bad side! *telegram* Recruit! We are not that cruel, you know, so we are allowing you a two day cheat treat. Aren't we cool?! Of-course, we are, we are SHIELD! OP 2: Find the lost Tomb of Rorustan You want to be the next Lara Croft? You want to go on adventures and move mountains like her, yes? Change the course of time and history like her? Then, you got to train like her! Her strong and Charismatic body took years and years of hard work and perseverance! Can you keep up? *CanI?* Journey to the lost tombs, human and bring forth power! My objective is to run and do body weight exercises (darebee and skipping rope) 3-4 times in a week with two days rest period. Walk for 20-30 mins daily. CAN YOU HEAR THE SPIRITS TALKING? YES! I DO! I CAN HEAR LARA CROFT! MASTER, I CAN HEAR HER WHISPERS FROM THE INSIDE, SPEAKING OUT TO ME (awksslipawaytoyonder) OP 3: Bend it like Korra! Before she was the avatar, Korra knew nothing of her powers and how to control them but with the help of her teachers and peers, she blossomed into the strongest being we know today! Want to Bend it like Korra? *Heck Yeah* then you must dedicate some time to your education; to learn and grow like the avatar. Daily one or two videos that'll inspire you or give you knowledge about the world and beyond. Study spanish: Duolingo and Memrise streaks, audio lessons from Pimsleur and YouTube video lessons. Dont forget to make notes in your notebook. Meditate to calm your souls. A clear and tension free mind is a happy mind! TAI CHI PRACTICE! Watch David Dorian Ross videos and practice along. New videos everyday to build your 103 long form practice. OP 4: "Be as flexible as Kamala Khan" SUPERHERO BY DAY, REGULAR GAMER CHILD BY NIGHT! Balancing your hero and human life takes a lot of work but you have to do this in order for the world to make sense plus, fun time is fun time! So, here are my humanly duties towards a good future:- Journal writing: habit tracking, Spanish progress and recording my days key features as bullet points to make my life easy Updating nerd fitness with my journey in the form of ratings A-F [A being super awesome and F Epic Wamp] and supporting new people and their journies! *POWER RANGERS, METAMORPHOSIS! Oh, wrong fandom* Read more books by adhering to the 50 books a year challenge: Give 1-2 weeks maximum to my current read by reading everyday for 20-30 minutes Focus on your hydration: Minimum 6glasses to up to 8 glasses. More water! LASTLY NEVER GIVE UP! Speaking of giving up, we all need some kind of push on our behinds, right? That's why I have certain ideals. Certain role models that I look for inspiration and motivation when I am feeling particular down in the ditch. These forces of good are there when i need them the most, to guide me through my epic quest I call life. Someone who I want to be: Inspiration Dice I have so many role models that I look up to! People who have proved to be gigantic and so bad arse--who don't need to be reminded of their worth! People who are amazing enough to inspire and motivate us all to follow our dreams and challenge our limits. They teach us that being kind, resolute, strong and brave--in the face of danger--is the most noblest of things you can do. So, so talented, so powerful and so stupendous. I want to be them and I am honoured to call them my idols: Lara Croft, Black Widow, Korra, Ellie Goulding, Aveline De Grandpre, Aloy, Merida, Captain Marvel, Avatar Aang, Dr 13 and Yasmin Khan, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Jim Kwik, Shuri, Okoye, Kamala Khan etc. I am not promising here but i will try to keep you guys up to date with my daily shenanigans and what-nots. Apart from that, I want to THANK you for YOUR precious time! And I might need you guys to help me with this challenge because my focus on them has been very rocky but I am ready to CHANGE MYSELF FOR THE BETTER! I SWEAR ON MY PRETTY LITTLE HANDS THAT I SHALL TRY MY HARDEST! *CUE RICK ROLL SONG* p.s: i love DND even though i am a complete beginner so talk to me about it or if you are looking dnd players then lets band together! I am all for an epic dnd session!
  3. Nettis Clovenmark felt the aches in her knees as she squatted in the brush, observing the narrow animal trail leading down to the river. She had been out in the forest for days, ever since the sickness came to the village. She knew that the link must be in the meat the hunters brought back, but Nettis was no hunter. Her attempts to find the deer and geese were all ending in frustration. In order to solve the mystery Nettis would have to work on getting quiet, being still, finding calm inside herself. She would have to make her body flexible enough to fit into small spaces and remain still while the animals approached her. Nettis stood and stretched, shaking her head and making her ear tips flap and chasing off the gnats. A deer snorted and dashed off through the underbrush, startled by her loudness. She sighed in frustration. This was going to take some work. --,--'-@ @-,--'-- Coming into this spring and this year with two injured knees and limited mobility made it a bit challenging to figure out how to move forward into a new challenge following my reboot. I have decided to continue some goals from last month focusing on meditation and yoga in order to keep working on being comfortable in my body. As well, I am working to attain NFA diet level 3 this challenge. In terms of leveling up my life, I plan to focus on creative space and enrichment in my life. GOAL1: Nutrition. I am going to be working the NF Academy 10 level system in order to move towards level 7 as a long term stopping point. This month I am shooting for level 3. I will track my calories and macros on MyFitnessPal 7/7 days with the goal being to have at least 1 vegetable in every meal and limited liquid calories 12/14 days. The challenge gives me 2-ish tries to get it right. GOAL 2: Meditation. I used to have a robust daily meditation practice and I miss the mental clarity and the ritual of it. I will meditate at least 10 minutes daily, 7 ays a week. GOAl 3: Movement. Due to the knees I am keeping low-to-no impact until I lose 50 lbs. My movement goal will be yoga for 10 minutes 5 days a week. LEVEL UP MY LIFE: Creativity I neglect my creative development all the time. I am a fiber artist and a writer. Both of these passions are things that I want to grow, but that I never seem to find the time to do properly. I have finally been given my own office at work and I want to put some of my weaving up. I also have several writing projects including a YA novel, a DnD campaign and 2 professional CEU trainings to work on. As such, I will plan to spend 5 hours on each of these passions weekly.
  4. Hello! I'm a veteran (?) dieter who also play D&D with Pathfinder as most familiar system. My PC class of choice have been/ is unfailingly support-caster with minus Strength modifier, barely passable Dexterity (mostly for rolling Initiative) and obligation-amount Constitution. It.. quite fits. This caster would like to improve squishyness and worry less about survival. GOALS This might look a lot, but most of it (aside from moving) I'm already doing though more accountability/better record would be great. I. Lose Over-Capacity -2 Strength modifier. Starting weight 65.2 kg (143.7 lbs), target weight 63 kg (138.8 lbs). Weigh everyday. Take 'before' (and 'after') pictures at the beginning and end of challenge (my week starts at Monday so it'll be March 20 to April 16 for me). II. Rationing Rations Food matters. Meal prep (enough for) 5-6 days out of a week. I have been taking up Paleo/Primal Diet since last year, though it ebbs and flows (I like to bake/feed people with gluten-foodthings). Lately I have been tinkering with Perfect Health Diet as well. Still tweaking my optimum food composition. Keep a food log. Random Encounters: Socializing-proofing. My diet's bane of existence are those eating out socializing sessions. The food are usually overpriced, not that delicious and almost always not paleo-friendly. Love the activity and company, but rarely the food. The last few times I managed to either bring my own prepared food/meal or only order a small appetizer/ half portions. Going to count all the wins on this! III. Casting Stat is Not End-All DCs and associated Skill Checks aside, the idea of being here and suffering exercising is to build physical stats. While I prefer to stay back and watch other people fight for me, the situation is/will not always be ideally so. So I must prepare and get stronger. Build CON (stamina) (still not sure how to measure this). Do cardio/walk around total of 3 hours per week (while listening to audiobooks/ lectures). Raise DEX & STR (flexibility and muscle strength). 60 minutes of Ballet Beautiful, 2-3 times per week. Mini Side-quest: Take pictures of bending/toe-touching & split 'befores' and 'afters'. EQUIPMENTS Cooking kit + ingredients + containers. Digital scale. Yoga mat. Elastic/ resistance band. Running/ crossfit (?) shoes. MP3 player set. Fitness Bullet Journal (Traveler's Notebook insert). REWARDS Week 1: Ballet Slippers Week 2 & 3: Sports Shoes for Outdoors Week 4: New Body Mist/ Leggings Goodluck everyone!
  5. Quest 0 - Hoard of the Dragon Queen I've been letting work get in the way of my workouts ... I'm frozen! (see how I made that work?) before week 1 I'm going to do at least 2 runs and a kettle bell workout! Quest 1 - The Rise of Tiamat Stretching! Everyday I'm going to do 10 minutes of stretching! A: 28 Days of stretching! (Wis +3) B: 20-27 Days of stretching! (Wis +2) F: <19 Days of stretching! Quest 2 - Princes of the Apocalypse Movement and mobility! 6 days a week I'm going to do some running/jogging. This could be long distance running + sprinting + hill work etc. A: 24 Days! (Dex +2, Con +2) B: 23-20 Days! (Dex+1 Con +1) F: <19 Days! Quest 3 - Out of the Abyss Tuesday+Thursday Kettlebell beast mode! A: 8 Days of Kettlebells (Str+3, Sta+2) B: 4-7 Days of Kettlebells (Str+2, Sta +2) F <3 Days of Kettlebells Quest 4 - Curse of Strahd I've been letting myself mope about and not be as social or out going as I should. Plus my photography has suffered from lack of doing it.
  6. Missed a challenge and getting started halfway through. Life has been crazy busy. Got my costume done (ish) for Steamposium and that was a fun event. Pictures are still on my camera. Continuing from my previous "Self as a Dungeons and Dragons 5e character" themes. I am halfway to level two which will be next challenge. Dex: Kick balance Practice 3 times a week on finding the right spot when I pivot for kicks. My side kick and round kick aren't fast enough, it takes me too long to find my balance. Enhancing my Proficiency in Artisan Tools: Finish a book. I am working on a handwritten book for my son's birthday, and I need to finish it before his birthday (the 25th)
  7. Following up on the previous challenge with the Dungeons and Dragons Theme Main Quest: Defeat the Villain Within: Loose weight and be Be healthy So in 5th edition you pick your character with three key pieces of information, Race (Human, Elf etc), Class (Monk, Rouge, Wizard), and Background (Sage, Pirate, Artisan). Last Challenge I started with Race, and now on to Background. I feel like the Sage background works best with my job in Information Technology and inclinations of a geeky nature. In standard DnD stats I feel like the following:STR DEX CON INT WIS CHA 9 9 9 13 11 10 Background: Sage 1.A Sage is skilled in HistoryI have looked at ancient method of food preservation and will be trying to culture some vegetables, a la sauerkraut etc. So I will be trying at least two types of cultured veggies this challenge. 2. A Sage knows where to find information he doesn't haveI need to work on relationships and accountability. So I need to post regularly and follow other regularly on the forums to build that knowledge and connection to the community. I should be reading and posting at least 3 times a week on the forums, I should be reading one book a week on health topics (or medical research articles). 3. A Halfling is nimbleA repeat from last challenge. I need to improve my flexibility and height of my kicks. I have yet to find what exactly I am doing, but I need to start somewhere. Life. A Sage has proficiency in ArcanaArcana: relating to the arcane, convoluted, nitpicky and other hidden arts. My wife and I are going to be setting a variety of personal goals. A few physical, but most related to things around the house and our routines. We are setting a goal of 400 points. All members of the family can contribute by their own goals, and when the 400 points is reached we can get a Wii U. For example, my daughters getting out of nighttime pull-ups can earn points, or my son in first grade reading a book a week, or my wife and I spending a day off electronics, etc. Some points for finishing projects we keep procrastinating etc. We actually are going to talk about the final specifics tonight.
  8. So last challenge I started out strong and things fizzled a bit, especially on the posting. So lets go again even if a week behind. Main Quest: Defeat the Villain Within: Loose weight and be Be healthy Last challenge I started with the Dungeons and Dragons Theme and I figure I will continue with that a bit for the next few challenges. So in 5th edition you pick your character with three key pieces of information, Race (Human, Elf etc), Class (Monk, Rouge, Wizard), and Background (Sage, Pirate, Artisan). So for this challenge I will start building the character with Race. I feel like a chubby stout halfling, enjoying my food and writing. In standard DnD stats I feel like the following:STR DEX CON INT WIS CHA 9 9 9 13 11 10 Race: Stout Halfling 1.A Halfling (Hobbit) is nimble: (+2 Dex)Stretches, and flexibility routines 3 times a week. My wife and I have been complaining of this, so hopefully we can do it together. 2. A Stout Halfling resists poison: (advantage to save vs poison)How else to resist poison than to stick with eating lots of good food. Target 3 -4 cups of vegetables a day, and explore better cheat foods. 3. A Halfling is Brave: (Advantage to saves vs. fear ) For some reason I hate going to testing, so I need to practice my TaeKwonDo form and get to testing this month. Life. A Halfling is Lucky: (reroll natural 1's)Still working on getting things done like last time. Do one project a a week. We have to paint the garage inside (previous owner smoked in a lounge he created in the third bay of the garage), and I want to finish writing this Sojourner Tales Story Module I have been working on, etc. I will post about the project each week as we decide on what is the priority. Images from Morguefile.com and yes I reused them from last challenge, oh well.
