I'm sticking with keeping things very simple and foundational. Yeah, I'll still post about the PARKOUR!!!, but even with parkour, I'm going to work on some fundamentals. I'm not being boring. I'm just training like a Jedi. I'm going to make a spreadsheet and check the boxes each day to keep myself honest. A lot of these are just the bare minimum, and I hope that I'll often feel inclined to do more. 1. Darebee Strength protocol workout every weekday. These are short and simple, but they certainly facilitate doing strength work every day. I'm currently up to Day 7. 2. Yoga mini session every weekday. These can be NF Yoga minis, 10-15 minute youtube videos, or even short arm balancing sessions. 3. Parkour fundamentals: a) 5 PK rolls every weekday. It seems like whenever I lapse in training these, I revert to aikido rolls. Rail walking for at least a couple minutes every weekday. I lost my mojo after falling while doing 180 degree turns and dislocating my elbow. I want to comfortably walk, go into QM, stand from QM, turn, and all of that while on a rail. c) Grip training. I stopped climbing, and now my grip kind of sucks. The goal is to hang on my hang board at least a couple times every weekday. 4. Boring evening snacks: Less junk and less booze in the evening. My current habits are so bad that I'm not going to be super strict with this. I just want to improve. I'm allowing myself fruit, veggies, cheese, nuts, and a very modest amount of sweets. I'm cutting back on the empty carbs and booze. The goal is only 1 evening of unhealthy snacks per week. 5. Parenting like a Jedi: Read the book "Taking charge of ADHD" (currently on hold at the library). Look into webpages and other support. Hopefully, the knowledge therein will help me be a bit less exasperated and dark-side-ish and more like a Jedi. Bonus: Coding fundamentals: By the end of the challenge, I hope I have my project cleaned up and ready to launch. I'm about 90% done, but I have a lot of profiling, implementing best practices, and cleaning up to do. So, once again, I have boring fundamentals on my plate.
New (well, old, but you know what I mean) Agent of the Resistance checking in. Looks like I've got my work cut out for me! Check out this mission briefing I got. How can I say no though, amirite? The Resistance needs me. Lemme know any ways I can help, my fellow Agents! For the Rebellion!
Main Quest: Become My Own Hero Motivation: Some people want to be like Spiderman, or Hazama Masayoshi, or Jason Bourne, or whoever - there are a million heroes out there to choose from, so take your pick. I considered that, but when it came right down to it, I didnâ€™t know of any single hero that embodied the kind of ideal that I want to live... so I created my own! This challenge is all about developing my new hero, and developing myself in his image. So, who is this guy? Clever Spark (WIS+2, CHA+2) Stop me if youâ€™ve heard this one: Drew was a normal guy with a normal life until he developed a strange power. He embarks on a career of amatuer crime-fighting, but it doesnâ€™t take long before things start to get... wierd. I will (kinda-sorta) play along with NaNoWriMo, but with modified rules because I havenâ€™t written seriously in years, and Iâ€™m a busy guy. By the end of this challenge, I will have written 25,000 (or more!) words of my heroâ€™s story (thatâ€™s an average of about 2 single-spaced pages of Arial 11 per business day). Stun Gun Touch (STR+3, STA+2) With a little concentration Drew can accumulate and release electrical current from his hands. Itâ€™s not much, but itâ€™s a hell of a lot more than most street gangers and drug pushers are expecting. I will train my hands 5x per week. This training will start rather easy and gradually increase in difficulty. The program (drawing heavily on Convict Conditioning 2) looks like this: Weapon of Choice (DEX+3) Having the super-amazing powers of a walking bug zapper is useful for preserving Drewâ€™s commitment to his pacifist ideology, but among other limitations, a manâ€™s arms can only reach so far and shooting lightning bolts at people is totally unrealistic... I no longer identify as a â€œfighterâ€ so weapons aren't really a part of my life anymore, but juggling is just as awesome and involves equally cool toys! ^^ I will practice with my new homemade rope dart (he's made of rice and a sock, and I call him Onigiri) for 10 minutes, 3 times per week (minimum). Okay, so technically, that's a , but the way I'm using it, makes it an adult thing... >>Implacable Determination (CON+3) Drew feels a deep sense of responsibility and never backs down[/ur] in the face of adversity. Heâ€™s not completely unaware of the value of a strategic withdrawal, however. My Battlelog is my responsibility. 1 point is awarded for each day that all goals are met. It will be acceptable to reschedule a goal to the following day, but the future beyond that is off limits. Details, for those who want them, will be posted to the Battlelog, but the short version looks like this: Letâ€™s get electrified!
