  1. Hi, I'm Koaladle and this is my first challenge! I enjoy ballroom dance and bike riding and used to spend all my spare time biking to dance lessons. Many adventures later, I am the family homemaker. It's been a weird adjustment, but I've decided to see this change as a fortuitous opportunity to become the active person I was before I gained the Spousal Sixty. I have a few advantages: I am in charge of groceries, my dog loves walks, and my handsome husband will eat whatever I cook, even the experiments gone wrong. Main Quest: Lose 65 pounds by June 2016 Quest 1: Walk Heimdall for at least 30 minutes twice a day. Measurement: A = 2520 minutes in 42 days; B = 1,050 minutes in 42 days; C = 800 minutes in 42 days Reward: A = +3 STA, +2 STR; B = +2 STA +1 STR; C = +1 STA Quest 2: Drink three liters of water every day. Measurement: A =126 liters of water in 42 days; B = 105 liters of water in 42 days; C = 84 liters of water in 42 days Reward: A = +3 CON; B = +2 CON; C = +1 CON Quest 3: Eat veggies twice a day. Measurement: A = 2 veggies, 42 days; days; B = 2 veggies, 36 days, C = 2 veggies, 30 days Reward: A = +3 WIS, +2 CON, B = +2 WIS, +1 CON, C = +1 WIS Motivation: I want to be fit so I can start a family farm (the natural combination of a hippie and a cheapskate). I need to get used to moving all day, eating whole foods, and staying hydrated to make this possible.
  2. Hi, I'm Koaladle and this is my first challenge! I enjoy ballroom dance and bike riding and used to spend all my spare time biking to dance lessons. Many adventures later, I've recently become the family homemaker. It's been a weird adjustment, but I've decided to see this change as a fortuitous opportunity to become the active person I was before I gained the Spousal Sixty. I have a few advantages: I am in charge of groceries, my dog loves walks, and my handsome husband will eat whatever I cook, even the experiments gone wrong. Main Quest: Lose 65 pounds by June 2016 Quest 1: Walk/jog with Heimdall (American Bulldog) for at least 30 minutes twice a day. Measurement: A = 2520 minutes in 42 days; B = 1,050 minutes in 42 days; C = 800 minutes in 42 days Reward: A = +3 STA, +2 STR; B = +2 STA +1 STR; C = +1 STA Quest 2: Drink three liters of water every day.

  3. Well, here I am again. A little blurb for those who don't know me: I'm a stay-at-home-mom who really needs to lose some weight. I think this will be my 4th challenge, but I've rarely finished for various reasons. Last challenge I stayed out, opting to do a Battle Log instead, but I didn't even stick with that. But I really need to change. I need to lose this weight, not only to feel better, but so I can be there for my little girl. I want to be able to keep up with her never-ending energy. While listening to Pandora, this song came on, and it was part of the reason that inspired me to do a challenge this time around (as well as some pushing from Teros. )I've heard it before, but this time, it resonated with me for different reasons than it has before. Lately, I've been struggling with depression a lot. I've had to force myself to get out of bed, and even then, I normally stayed on or near the couch. A couple of weeks ago, I actually got to the point of suicidal thoughts and almost reverted back to cutting. I'm still struggling, but I can see the light outside of the cave. So, I'm going to attempt to keep things simple this challenge to help me get back up on my feet. I'll be focusing on creating habits that I can stick with and that will help me achieve my weight loss goal. My Main Goal is to get down to 130 pounds, which is about 80 or so pounds. Of course I'm not going to lose all that in one challenge period, but at least I can get a start. To achieve this goal I need to: Log all the foodz! Normally when I log food, I just get "close enough" or I give up halfway through the day because I decided to scarf down an entired frozen pizza or something. Not any more. I need to get back into the habit of food logging and log everything.Exercise. Last November I joined a gym and I haven't been very consistant about going. I enjoy being there, but getting there is the battle. So, I need to get to the gym at least 3 days a week, though I'm going to try and start going 5, but only 3 are neccesary to pass. I'm also going to start measuring how much I walk in a day, as on another forum we're starting the Walk to Mordor challenge.No Soda. My husband has to have soda in the house, so it's a huge temptation. I have gotten better about drinking more water, but I really need to cut this sugar demon out. My goal is to have 3 or less sodas the entire challenge.I do have a Life Goal of becoming a better housewife. I really suck at doing chores and the like. There's some sort of mental block going on there that I'm struggling to get over. I have a few simple steps that I can take to start going in the right direction. Get some clothes on. One bad habit of being a SAHM is not getting dressed some days. It's way too easy to just stay in your PJs when you don't have anywhere to go. So, I need to start getting me and my DD dressed when we get up. Simple chores done every day husband works. I recently read somewhere about a mindset that another SAHM started to take, and that was "If my husband is working, than I need to be working". That doesn't mean that you need to thoroughly clean the house everyday, but I need to be spending less time on the computer and other things that aren't completely productive. Here are some simple things that I need to get done every day DH is at work:Wash dishesHave DD pick up toys at end of the dayClean up after cookingMake sure most (if not all) my stuff is picked up​I'm still working on a grading scale for everything. As for the point system, I'm going to take a page out of our guild leader's book and just divvy them out as I think I earned at the end of the challenge. Will be less stressful at the start, and at the end I can accurately gauge which stats went up. Come Monday, I'll post my starting stats and all that jazz. Just gotta survive the weekend first.
