  1. Discipline A good assassin practices discipline, and great assassin lives it. Instead of focusing on different aspects of being an assassin, Snuggles needs to focus on improving the discipline in her life. She needs to focus on the things she can control and actively change. Physical #1: Working on the back. I have joined a Pilates group that meets twice a week. I also want to get back into my physical therapy. Week #1 of my challenge: Focus on physical therapy 3 times Week #2 of my challenge: Focus on physical therapy 4 times & Pilates twice Week #3 of my challenge: Focus on physical therapy 5 times & Pilates twice Week #4 of my challenge: Focus on physical therapy 6 times & Pilates twice Week #5 of my challenge: Focus on physical therapy 7 times & Pilates twice Physical #2: I need to do something physical every day. Things to include are walking at least 2 miles, hiking, weight training, knife practice or something else. Week #1 of my challenge: 3 times a week Week #2 of my challenge: 4 times a week Week #3 of my challenge: 5 times a week Week #4 of my challenge: 6 times a week Week #5 of my challenge: 7 times a week Bonus: I would like to average at least 70k steps a week and 10k a day! Prize to be determined… Diet: Snuggles needs to start interacting with food in good ways again. I need to eat breakfast 6 days a week. Sunday Brunch is acceptable if I get at least a piece of fruit early. Week #1 of my challenge: Week #2 of my challenge: Week #3 of my challenge: Week #4 of my challenge: Week #5 of my challenge: Tracking is King: Finally Snuggles needs to start incorporating her many interests into her daily routine. (The To-Do Chart has returned!) In the past my chore chart is a wonderful indicator of what works and where I need work. It gives me a weekly visual so I know very quickly where I need to focus my energies. I will use this along with my Fit-bit to track food and activities. Activities include French, Knife Defense, Knitting, Lockpicking, Game Night, etc. Week #1 of my challenge: Week #2 of my challenge: Week #3 of my challenge: Week #4 of my challenge: Week #5 of my challenge: Builder Goals: I will be starting fresh so this challenge will be spent focusing on creating a baseline. Week #1 of my challenge: Week #2 of my challenge: Week #3 of my challenge: Week #4 of my challenge: Week #5 of my challenge:
  2. Because it's expected by now... So in the middle of the last challenge I lost my mind...and signed up for Kickboxing classes They are honestly a lot of fun, even though they make me realize how out of shape I am! Made some not so good food choices over the weekend and ended up with a flare up that made me realize why I don't eat those items anymore...time to recommit to myself and my challenge. I'm currently heavier than I've ever been in my life according to the scale this morning...that includes pregnancy (the first one I gained 50 lbs and was the first time I'd ever been over 200 lbs, currently being the second) Challenge 1. Kickboxing 3 times a week, only exception is holiday schedule or if I have a 5K (doing both would be better) Had to reduce kickboxing to once a week, the repetition was too much for my neck damage. 2. Portion sizes, even though I eat strict Paleo it has still been too much, keep tracking food and keep carbs under 60. Keep my Sun Basket subscription to help with this one because the easier I make it the more likely I am to stick with it! (One cheat a week is currently allowed.) 3. Hold myself accountable...since school isn't a part of my schedule anymore it seems like I'm at loss of what to do with my time. During season at my job I'm not at a loss of what to do with my time, but I need to hold myself accountable to checking in on my goals here, since we see what happens when I don't....I credit NF and the amazing people I've met here (and not wanting to let them down) with the progress I made before, and will again. Check in at least 3 times a week. My spreadsheet link is in my signature, as is MyFitnessPal. Yes my spreadsheet goes to the end of the year and you are welcome to steal my format if it helps you, I break it down into quarters, ymmv. Not comfortable with sharing my current measurements just yet, but plan on taking them at the end of every challenge with a +/- type thing... Upcoming 5K's 11/23 - Community First Thanksgiving Distance Classic (rain) 12/3 - Out of Darkness Walk(overdid it, could not move) 12/9 - The Super Run (rain) 12/16 - Terrain Race (with the current condition of my neck I don't think I'll realistically be able to do this one, plus $10 parking ) 12/22 - Run Santa Run 1/06/16 - Healthy Start 5k 1/13/18 - Best Damn Race (10k) 3/10/18 - Gate River Run (15k) 4/21/18 - Never Quit Run
  3. Happy New Year Assassins! I have done some reflecting and work on my goals. I spent some time reflecting on how I see the Assassin in my life and where I want to see her. I have developed some long term goals I want to accomplish over the next couple of years and I will use these challenges to slowly work my way toward them. As the first challenge of the year I need to focus on starting healthy habits and determining where I currently stand. My first goal is I need to work on making my Physical Therapy a daily habit. For this first challenge I will aim for once a day. Trunk Rotation 10 times Bridge 10 times Spinal stretch, Hold for 15 seconds 3 times both sides Dog to Camel pose 10 time Quadriceps Stretch, Hold for 15 seconds 3 times both sides Shoulder Rolls, forward and backward, 10 count each A. = last ten days of my challenge = 3(STA) & 3(STR) & 3(DEX) B. = last nine days of my challenge = 2.25(STA) & 2.25(STR) & 2.25(DEX) C. = last eight days of my challenge = 1.5(STA) & 1.5(STR) & 1.5(DEX) & loose 1 (WIS) D. = last seven days of my challenge = .25(STA) & .25(STR) & .25(DEX) & loose 2 (WIS) My food/diet goal: This challenge will be so simple that failure is almost guaranteed. I will log all food and drink every day & my weight every Sunday night before breakfast. So simple a monkey could do it and yet so many chances for forgetting. A. = 26 times during the 4 week challenge = 2(WIS) B. = 23 times during the 4 week challenge = 1.5(WIS) C. = 20 times during the 4 week challenge = 1(WIS) D. = 17 times during the 4 week challenge = .5(WIS) To follow along the same vein, my lifestyle goal will also be logging. I will be tracking (without judgement or expectation) how often I brush/floss/rinse, style my hair, how much tv I’m watching (news at work not included), how often I socialize (not including my friends visit this week), what I spend my money on and where. A. = 26 days during the 4 week challenge = 2(CHA) B. = 23 days during the 4 week challenge = 1.5(CHA) C. = 20 days during the 4 week challenge = 1(CHA) D. = 17 days during the 4 week challenge = .5(CHA) (I will use this information to develop a baseline for my builder goals. My builder goals are goals I have passed in previous challenges that I want to become habits so they will continue with future goals.) Builder Goals- Continue with Workday Vegetarian (Allowed 1 slip up) Take time to write 3 times a week Take 5 minutes, 3 times a week to meditate Pass- Gain 2 (WIS) Fail- Lose 2 (WIS) Let the games begin!
  4. I thought about actually running this challenge in the druid thread, but I really like it here and my main focus is still my strongman comp in Dec. This will be more like a lady dwarf scampering happily through the woods with her battleaxe noticing the cute animals and pretty flowers, but really she is just terrorizing everything in her path without noticing. I decided to add some druid traits this time around because I feel like I have my weight training down, and to keep focusing on that is kind of cheating. I will continue to log my weight workouts here, but that will not be a goal this time around. Goals! Focus: Focus more on the good, and less on the uncontrollable. This month I will start using my new planner which focuses more on life goals than what meetings I have for the week. I think this will help me focus more on the important things, and less on the dreary things I have no control over. Calm: Find ways to enhance my daily calm. Clean bedroom and guest room, enjoy the outside while it's actually nice out, notice the small things that make you happy throughout the day. Balance: Balance out the heavy lifting with more walking, yoga, and stretching weekly. Balance out your lazyness/game time with something constructive like learning Italian (can do gaming and Italian WoW'ing with Co-Worker and only speaking Italian). Balance your body with proper nutrition, and more water (54oz min daily). Special Goal: Check in more, and share more with others. I have a tendency to think what I have to share isn't good enough, so while I look at everyone's challenges I don't always speak up. I want to work on this since it's a confidence issue really and something I need to work on.
  5. So! As the title states I am currently a ranger but have noticed the crossfit thing just isn't for me and recently (as in this past week) started working out with a powerlifting trainer. This challenge is going to be pretty straight forward but I am hoping (and really think) I have found my workout passion. My Large Goals: Train: I have 2 weekly workouts with my trainer that are 1 hour each, and I will weight train once a week full body on my own. My rest days will be active rest with at least 30-45 min of walking or yoga, and I get one straight rest day with nothing required. Eat for Gains: Workout Day Calories :2235 p:150g c:240g f:75g Rest Day Calories : 1835 p:150g c:140g f:75g Drink All The Water: I have to get back into the swing of drinking water throughout the day because I see myself sipping on a cup of coffee for 4 hours and then realize I have to go work out and I haven't had any water.
  6. Hi All, I think this is an awsome idea. I loge everything on Calorie Counter, but there is no accountability if I drop the ball or stop logging. My goal here will be to log my food and activies, as well as how I feel overall EVERY SINGLE DAY. Today was a great first start. I woke up at my normal time, went for an hour walk, then made breakfast. I had work to do, then made an ok lunch. I think as the week goes on, I would like to add more veggies and/or fruit to my lunches. I did take a short nap this afternoon, but made a very healthy dinner then walked down to the waterfront (1.3 miles) and had a small creemee. (Soft Serve) I had 9 cups of water today and only 2 glasses of tea. I didn't have any soda, juice or other sugar filled drink. "Cheer's". Emotionally, I am feeling pretty positive. Physically, I did drop a bit this afternoon. I'm not sure if I need to sleep better or improve my calorie and nutrent intak. This is something I should monitor throughout this challenge. I only have two things I want to address. Increasing my fruit/veggie intake and increasing my calorie intake. I only managed 1350 and I should be closer to 1600. I removed a lot of the negitive calories, but now I need to replace them with good ones. Overall, not a bad first day.
  7. So my last challenge had a lot of slip ups but I am moving forward and looking to really make this year a good one for myself. I joined a GAME On! challenge with a buy in of 20 bucks, and I am taking my goals from that and implementing them here. Since that started yesterday this 6 week challenge is going to be more like 8! Train All The Days- 60 minuets of activity 5 days a week, 20 minuets minimum of activity on "off days" 6+ Days per week - A 5+ Days per week - B Less than 5 - F Drink All The Water- 3 liters per day, every day. 6+ Days per week - A 5+ Days per week - B Less than 5 - F Don't Eat All The Things - eat 4 to 5 small/proper portioned meals per day (1 quest bar/protein shake counts as a meal per day). I will stay under my 1600 calorie limit on heavy workout days, 1400 on light workout days. The game on challenge rules allow 1 meal and 1 day off, so I am sticking with that as the rules. No alcohol except 1 drink allowed with the cheat meal, and then on the free day. 6+ Days per week - A 5+ Days per week - B Less than 5 - F Life Quest: Save up for my Cruiser now that I have my motorcycle endorsement!!

  9. Hello, I'm Essillore, a 21- year old female from Finland. I'm studying educational psychology at the university, and aspiring to become a professional Starcraft 2 -player. The idea behind all the goals, is to lose weight, to clean up my skin from acne, and to get more energy to enjoy life and succeed in my gaming and in other areas of life.. 1. Eating Simple paleo. No wheat, no sugar, no dairy. I'm checking on a modified list of three combined places of what to eat (paleo, O-bloodtype diet, 4Hbody), as it all seems to speak of the same thing. Loads of vegetables, fish and red meat incoming, with some fruit, nuts and seeds to add to the packet. + 4 Cha 2. Exercise I will be following the minimalistic 4h body- program of kettlebell swings and body weight exercises. I will also be training in dance gaming, to improve in that and to get some aerobic exercise. These are exercises I can do at home +4 Str 3. Logging my life I will keep a diary of my weight- and measurements, eating&drinking, sleep, exercise, playing Starcraft, doing school things. My goal is to learn to know how I function, and to eliminate stupid use of time, so I can focus on the important things. +3 Con Life goal: My goal is to play 1800 games of Starcraft 2 as of 1st May. That's on average 25 games each day for the next 10 weeks. My goal is to reach this time consuming and attention-needing goal, while at the same time improving my health and fitness and those habits. Additional motivation: If I succeed in my goal, and I've got a total of 4000 played games (2222 now as I'm writing) at 1st May, I'm allowed to buy myself a good new gaming computer when I get the money saved for that. If I don't succeed in my goal, I've clearly not got enough motivation to push it to the top in Starcraft II, and won't do anything with a brand new computer. +4 Wis Grading I will get 1 point for each day I follow my program for each of the areas. Grading: 40-42 A, 35-39 B, 30-34 C, 0-29 F
  10. MAIN QUEST My ultimate goal is to fit comfortably in size 14 trousers. But currently I have an injured shoulder which is weakened and lacks range of movement. Nothing to do with NF, I might add! This level of my life story is all about overcoming injury, maintaining my good habits and looking after myself. By the end of this challenge I will not be wearing any bigger clothes than I am now. MISSION ONE: 5 x 30-min workouts per week I have been instructed by my doctor not to lift heavy things and to rest my shoulder. Easier said than done to this warrior! I will still be working out using NF Academy workouts but will mix and match elements of the bodyweight, barbell and dumbbell workouts as well as the good old “fun cardio.†STR+2, DEX+2, STA+2 A = 25+ workouts B = 23 or 24 workouts C = 21 or 22 workouts F = 20 workouts or fewer MISSION TWO: LOG AND TRACK In order to maintain my clothes size (or even shrink it) I need to keep track of measurements. I will log my body fat percentage, body composition etc on my home scales weekly; my body size fortnightly and my food intake daily. Weekly and fortnightly measurements are mandatory so anything lower than 6 weekly measurements and 3 fortnightly measurements means failure. CON+2, WIS+1 A = 30+ logged days B = 28 or 29 logged days C = 26 or 27 logged days F = 25 logged days or fewer MISSION THREE: SELF CARE I am happiest and healthiest when I am clean, organised and engaging with life. I will develop a daily checklist to keep me on track as well as some kind of reward system. Things included will be at least one bath or shower every day and taking my meds regularly and on time. My checklists / rewards will be set and reviewed every 2 weeks for the duration of this challenge. CON+3, CHA+3 A = 30+ days with a complete checklist B = 28 or 29 days with a completed checklist C = 26 or 27 days with a completed checklist F = 25 days or fewer with a completed checklist MOTIVATION “Consider the consequences of doing nothing.â€
  11. I'm jj. If you don't know me, I'm an amateur aerialist and a mom. <insert continuing adventure story of acrobat/performer/treedwelling assassin here> Don't quite have the creative fortitude to deal with writing my continuing story today, sorry, it's one of those days that has required a lot of me on the parenting front, so I'm just getting my goals down for right now. MAIN QUEST: To execute a really amazing aerial performance! This may take a year or so to do with my current apparatus focus (straps and/or straps moves on an aerial hammock), but that's OK, since I'm in it for the long term and I love my training. Main goal #1: Complete my modified training schedule for GMB Rings 1. I've written out a schedule that stretches the program to 6 weeks which both allows for me to continue circus work without overtraining and allows for the fact that I'm a girl and may not make super fast progress with such a demanding program. I'm tackling this specifically because many of the rings moves translate pretty closely to stuff I'm trying and failing to do on straps. I need an overall more novice progression for my home training and then one day a week when I work hard and fail on the straps under quality coaching. Main goal #2: Keep a paper training log. Yeah. So I've been around the fitness game for a while and NF for several years and I should know better, but I do not keep a training log. Never have. Since R1 requires some basic logging of technique and perceived exertion, I figure it's as good of a time as any to try keeping a training log (of all my training: rings program, recovery days and circus training) to see if it helps me out any. Main goal #3: Work on my knees. I have hypermobile knees (they lock out at >180 degrees). In P.E. or yoga classes or dance classes or wherever I've gotten a lot of weird ideas from people about what to do about my knees. Well... a couple of weeks ago I came across a technique video on yogaglo.com from Jason Crandell about dealing with hypermobile knees and for the first time ever someone was saying something that made physical sense to me. So one goal for this challenge is to simply work through that video once a week for the 6 weeks of the challenge to really absorb how to keep my legs engaged and straight without locking back my knees (which locks my femur into my hip). I'm hoping this will eventually allow me to have better control and alignment of my legs while performing... not to mention walking around. :-D I have two side quests: Life side quest: To do 30 minutes of yardwork 5 days a week. We just moved into a new house and lots of things were neglected by the previous owner, who was quite elderly. It's time to get to work on the yard. Rather than being overwhelmed by the hugemongous task of getting it cleaned up (some of it is going to require some professional help), I'm just going to do it like I got strong, bit by bit, day by day. I will allow a pass on outside yard work on days when it's either pouring rain or our green bin is full... but those days I'm going to spend the time doing research on what I want to do for plantings and landscaping. Fitness side quest: Juggle more! It's fun! It's silly! It's cross training for my hands! I did a slapstick comedy playshop last week and found a local contact juggling/body rolling teacher who I'd love to work with. She only teaches once a month (and not every month), which is cool, because it's not a huge time commitment. So my final side quest is to just put some time in with my juggling props on a low key, semi regular (not strict, not measured) basis. OK... now back to my kiddo who is FINALLY playing quietly instead of sobbing about random things all day. Fellow assassins, I look forward to an excellent challenge with y'all! -jj
  12. Hi there, I'm an aspiring Olympic weightlifter (Raising the Bar, geddit?) who lives in Edinburgh, Scotland. Over the last 18 months, I've gone through my own epic fitness odyssey that you can read all about in my introduction thread. Suffice to say, a year ago I started lifting heavy and fell in love with it. Earlier this year, I started training in the Olympic lifts and now my goal is to get to a point where my numbers make me competitive at meets here in Scotland. I've got a long way to go before I achieve that though so this challenge is the first big step on the road to that goal. I work for a digital agency and am desk-based most of the day but I try to get out and walk every lunchtime and normally hit 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day. I currently train three times a week but will likely increase this to four later on in the year or when progressing my lifts requires it. Starting Stats: For the sake of tracking progress, here's where I am as of 28 July 2013. Bodyweight: 85.5kg Bodyfat %: 15% Snatch: 65kg (extremely messy) Clean & Jerk: 77kg Back Squat: 152.5kg 5RM, 160kg 1RM Front Squat: 115kg 3RM As you can see, my Olympic lift numbers are nowhere near my squat but I'm still a newbie in Olympic lifting and my technique needs a bunch of work. Main Quest Lift more weight in the Snatch and Clean & Jerk by getting stronger and improving my technique My long term to hit an 85kg Snatch and 110kg Clean & Jerk which could potentially have me medalling in my weight class, but I expect to be competing long before I reach them. As I have no idea how long it will take me to achieve those numbers this challenge is all about making progress towards them. Challenge success will be based on weight added to each lift and won't be easy! If you're wondering why the numbers are different for each lift, it's because the Snatch is more technique based and the C&J is more about strength, so lifters always put up bigger weights in the C&J. Scoring A: +7.5 kg Snatch, +10kg Clean & Jerk B: +5kg Snatch, +7.5kg Clean & Jerk C: +3kg Snatch, +5kg Clean & Jerk D: +1kg Snatch, +2.5kg Clean & Jerk F: +0kg Snatch, +0kg Clean +Jerk I'll be absolutely thrilled if I manage to score an A or a B on my main goal as these are really significant increases! C is kinda consistent with the progress I've seen the last 6 weeks but I *know* I can do better. Mission #1 - Lift more weight In the Squat Everyone knows that squats build a big, firm booty but did you know that they build bigger, tighter Olympic lifts too? Snatches and cleans go up as squat strength improves and so the squat is the #1 strength exercise for weightlifters. At the moment I follow Texas Method programming for my squat and back squat Tuesday and Saturday, front squat on Thursday. I'm going to judge this using my 1RM with a max out day the last training day of the challenge Progress will be judged based on weight added to my 1RM for the back squat. Scoring A: +15kg B: +12.5kg C: +10kg D: +5kg F: +2.5kg or less Mission #2 - Do mobility work at least 5 days per week (foam roll, band stretches, lacrosse ball) The Olympic lifts aren't all about brute strength though - speed and flexibility are required. I slack on my mobility work way too often and jump into training without taking the time to do the stretches and rolling that I know make my lifting go smoother. Time for this to stop! If we've got 6 weeks and I want to do mobility work 5 days a week that means 30 mobility sessions total so let's use that as a base number for scoring. Scoring: A:28-30 mobility sessions B: 25-27 mobility sessions C: 20-24 mobility sessions D: 15-19 mobility sessions F: 15 mobility sessions Mission #3 - Take video of my lifts at every training session and post my training log on my blog I'm pretty good about logging training on my blog already so I need to keep that up but as a self-coached lifter, it's absolutely critical that I take as much video as I possibly can. I don't always too this and sometimes when I do, I screw the video up by accidentally cutting the top of my body off in the frame or something like that. No excuses, video for every training session! Before I talk about tracking progress I should say that I'm going on a trip for work to a week and while I will have access to a hotel gym, it is extremely unlikely that it's going to have the setup I need to do my Olympic weightlifting training - though I'm bringing my lifting shoes just in case! For that reason, I am going to count that as a recovery week and so will be doing 15 training sessions during the challenge (3 sessions for 5 weeks). Scoring: A: Log/video for all 15 training sessions! B: Log/video for 13-14 training sessions C: Log/video for 10-12 training sessions D: Log/video for 7-9 training sessions F: Log/video for 6 sessions or less Life Quest Reclaim my free time from the procrastination/inefficiency monster I'm a pretty busy guy and never feel like I have enough time to do all the things I want to do in my free time. Over the last year I've really struggled to find time to do the other things I love, that don't involve lifting things up and and putting them down - like gaming, watching movies and reading. The thing is, I know that if I was better organised I would be able to fit in more of the things I want to do. So what am I going to do about it?! I'm going to do more batch cooking so I don't have to cook every single night, I'm going to try and tidy up as I go along instead of spending 2+ hours cleaning up the mess I've made all week and I'm just to spend less time watching things I don't even like on TV. By the end of this challenge, I'd very much like to be able to say that I had finally finished two of The Last of Us, Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite! My Motivation Be more awesome I get a huge sense of achievement out of pushing my body to its limits and exploring what I'm truly capable of. Although it's an extremely demanding sport that requires a great deal of concentration, patience and self-analysis, I have completely fallen in love with weightlifting. There are always ways for you to improve - it's a sport that takes a lifetime to learn and two lifetimes to master I haven't competed in sport since the age of 14 and back then it was when I played soccer. I've *never* competed in a solo sport and as a bit of a lone wolf, I love the idea of testing myself on the competitive stage sometime next year. Looking back at where I was two years ago, I know I never want to be that guy again and the new me is going to keep trying to better himself and be the very best he can be. I think that's it for me, can't wait for the challenge to begin!
  13. So, hi y'all! This is, how the title already says, my second try to do a full challenge. I had to stop doing my part-challenge last time because I went on an internship in this small cute hospital with no internet access whatsoever. About me: I am 21 years old, weigh 138 pounds, am 5"1. I fear I am rather hobbitlikem but I like elves more. I've started seriously taking care of my health after my BMI reached the frightening 29,9 and I weighted 164 pounds. I am in 3rd year in medical school, which I think is alone enough to classify me as a huge nerd. I am also a huge fan of Lord of the Rings. And Harry Potter. Star Wars and Marvel is okay as well, Star Trek too... but it's not my main area of focus, so to say. I like reading and writing and learning languages, but don't have any time now for that . But I speak 5 languages. or 4 and half so to say, because I can't actually say that I speak french. It is more like a slow and painful stammering. My goal weight ist actually 110 pounds. In November I reached the awesome 127 pounds, but since then I gained more than 10 pounds back due to my weakness of..what is food. I did good for a year, but then I started again getting more and more in temptation. And then there were christmas, then I got the flu, then I had finals'week, I had vacation and then I injured my food and had to use crutches for a month, and another vacation, and and and - all excuses. 6 of those pounds I gained last two weeks, so I hope that those fat cells are still a bit loose and I will lose them quickly. I log my food on loseit.com, and did Atkins/ Paleo for half a year with good results. I don't want to do Atkins again, because it is a bit too extreme, but i do want to cut out carbs again now and do more paleo. (Or primal? No idea what's the difference...) Anyway, cut out sugar and grains and eat less dairy. I feel that my motivation is waining, and I hope that nerdfitness will get be that little extra. Sports... I do everything, but for now I'd like to focus on the fitness mix classes (calisthenics-cardio-weightlifting mix) and jogging. I still can't jog the same way as before due to my poor feet, but I have started doing Couch-to-10K programm in order to get back where I was. So, my goals: 1) Do three times per week sport and at least three hours. Extra point if I do 4 times/week and 5 hours. + 2 STR, +3 DEX, + 1 STA (Bonus + 1 CHA) 2) Do lowcarb paleo. Cut out all grains and sugar, eat a lot of veggies and protein and healthy fats and some fruit. + 3 CON 3) Log everything I eat and not go over my daily calories on loseit.com (They are about 1400 at the moment) + 3 CON 4) Life goal: Read through at least three 3 scientific articles for my research thesis and have a meeting with my professor. +1 WIS, + 1 CHA My stats: Level 1 Strength: 1 Dexterity: 1 Constitution: 2 Stamina: 2 Wisdom: 5 Charisma: 4 Elven Adventurer - Level 1 STR: 1 | DEX: 1 | CON: 2 | STA:2 | WIS: 5 | CHA: 4
