I HAVE ALLOWED MY BASIC HUMAN VEHICLE TO EXPERIENCE THE EMOTIONAL HIGHS EARNED IN THE LAST CHALLENGE. READ ABOUT IT HERE. THE BEST BLACKBOARD MONITORS ARE NOT EFFICIENT - THEY ARE EFFECTIVE. THEY DO NOT WIPE WELL, THEY WIPE THE CORRECT THING AT THE CORRECT TIME. SO I SHALL TRACK MY DIET VIA THE MEDIUM OF PHOTOGRAPH. I SHALL NOT LOG RUTHLESSLY AND EFFICIENTLY - I MERELY NEED TO KNOW WHAT IS ON THE PLATE, BEFORE IT ENTERS MY ORAL CAVITY. ALL WISE BEINGS PLAN. AS IN SELF-HELP BOOKS, SO SHALL IT BE UPON ENGLAND. I WILL PLAN ALL EVENING MEALS ON EACH SUNDAY, AND I WILL PLAN AT LEAST 2 OTHER MEALS PER WEEK (SNACKS CAN COUNT AS MEALS). I ENJOYED TRAINING ONCE PER WEEK FOR THE PREVIOUS CHALLENGE. I TRAINED 3 TIMES MORE OFTEN THAN PLANNED. SO THIS CHALLENGE I WILL TRAIN AT LEAST TWICE PER WEEK. FINALLY, I WILL AIM TO GAIN 100XP PER WEEK FOR DUOLINGO SPANISH. THAT IS ONCE PER DAY, PLUS THREE EXTRA SECTIONS. THERE WILL BE A BRIEF, PLEASANT CHEMICAL REACTION IN THE SIMPLISTIC ANIMAL BRAIN OF THE FIRST HUMAN THAT GUESSES THE MYSTERY BONUS TASK I HAVE SET FOR MYSELF.
Hi Rangers! After a bit of wandering around, (hi warriors, adventurers, and druids!) I've settled into Rangerdom. Rangerhood? Rangerness? This will be my 4th challenge 1st in the Ranger thread, and may be the toughest yet. I've been working with a personal trainer, last month my first PT transferred to a different location and I just started working with a new one, which upset the flow a bit. So new PT focus is going to be on my eating habits (which tbh are pretty good, but we're still establishing the best current caloric/nutrition balance), losing body fat (currently sitting around 30%, I don't have a specific goal yet in mind at the moment), and gaining endurance ('cause I still get winded pretty easily). That's the easy part. The hard part is that I'm starting a Kickstarter on the 20th, so work/life/projects/Kickstarter balance is going to be waaaaay out of whack, and I need to make sure I don't over stress, over commit, over kill, over sleep, over etc. - it's a very druid goal perhaps, but I need to make sure I don't burn out, or overcompensate and turn into a potato. Potatoes don't get stuff done XD CHALLENGE 1: 30 minute intermediate level cardio workout 3x a week PT recommendation, and I want to stick to it. So not just walking, but either faster pace, uphill, some sprinting, indoor constant activity, etc. I'm at the point where I can pretty much walk forever, but I need to kick it up a notch. Definition of intermediate for this is: can say a sentence or so, but need to catch breath afterwords. As luck would have it, my last round involved doing this once a week, so Hurray! Incrementing! SKILL INCREASE: Stamina CHALLENGE 2: Photolog food daily PT wants to see what I'm eating and what the Carb/Protein/Fat balance is. I'm already pretty good at logging daily on MyFitnessPal (100+ day streak, woot!), so this is another daily step. It will also help me to see what I'm eating (lots of protein shakes/bars and chicken/veggies, lol). These are goals I can make up on a different day, so long as I do log and send it w/i a few days. SKILL INCREASE: Wisdom CHALLENGE 3: SLEEP. Make sure I get to bed by midnight daily. I want to make this 11, but I need to be realistic about my work habits... but also not go to bed in the wee hours working on things XD So extra points if I'm in bed by 11. Extra point will cancel out decremented points. And yes, this includes weekends, 'cause I'm old (not really). SKILL INCREASE: Constitution I will also be going to PT at least once a week and going to the gym with my brother once a week, but not goals 'cause they're established now, yay! :3 LIFE GOAL: START A FREAKIN' KICKSTARTER! Not to worry, this will be my third rodeo for this (1 fail, 1 successful), so I know what it entails, and my business partner is also helping out. The good news is that we have an established fanbase through Flip Hue and a pretty awesome local community that's super helpful, but we'll still need to branch out in marketing to get a larger client base, and also we need to kick in to high gear for the logistics (like, you know, graphics, making the Kickstarter video, finishing the product lol). The ultimate goal is to get everything done and out before GenCon, so we can have 2 games to sell, and that's the beginning of August, so a pretty lofty goal with manufacturing. And by all means, if anyone has any questions about this, feel free to ask! SKILL INCREASE: Charisma I will post my stats in my signature spoiler area :3
