  1. Whew. It has been a hell of a summer. And today marks the official end of my summer break. If you followed my last two challenges and you were let down that I kind of dropped off, I apologize. A lot has happened in life the past few months (good things, mostly, but still a lot). I'm keeping this challenge simple and familiar, while also blending a routine I tried to stay consistent with during my last two challenges: daily poetry. But I also need to get back to routine now that I am returning to work. So, I am focusing on my morning goals: 0415 wakeup drink a f
  2. Oh god, is there a new challenge already? OK: Still trying to learn the dance from last time Choose a poem and learn it by heart Bike adventure - ride my new bike from here to Cambridge and back. Done! 10k run on the 23rd - be prepared! Then revert to one long, two short per week Eat sensibly - paleoish and use some sort of portion control That'll do.
  3. Welcome all to my next challenge. I know my presence here was scarce last few challenges, and I cannot guarantee that won't be the case again this challenge. I almost chose to not participate in this challenge, but I'm starting to feel as if I need it. My family and I recently experienced a loss that I will discuss in a later post. But I will do my best to show up, both for myself and for my fellow Adventurers. If you have followed me for some time, for this challenge you can assume all the other daily habits are locked into place (early rise, prayer/meditation, scripture, daily wo
  4. It's my seventh challenge and I'm ready to do this! Whatever this is. I'm ready for that. --- Quest #1: Workout 3x per week (continuation/upgrade from last challenge) My yearly goal is to work out 2 x per week. I'm eleven workouts behind, so if I just add one extra per week, it's still gonna take nearly the rest of the year to catch up...which means it's definitely time to scale this up. The good news: I'm feeling really motivated to workout more. The bad news: More workouts take more time. So I will keep these workouts short and sweet. I will do them

Reason for working out My family has a history of heart disease, diabetes, and all in all bad health. I'm working to put that off. I've already been sick enough in my life.

  6. Sovellis groaned as he woke up on the hard stone floor of Noor's mountain hut. This wouldn't do. "First thing we need to work on is making a better bed. Stone is not kind to my poor spine," he grumbled, "and I'm guessing we're going to be out here for a while." Stretching the stiffness from his limbs, he got up and looked around. The giant cat was laying on top of Noor, and the dog, Dael, was laying on top of the cat. The sight made him smile. He tried prodding his friend, who appeared to still be asleep. No reaction. So strange, her skin really felt like stone. Sighing, he got dressed and

  8. Once again, I'm getting a little bit of a late start. This past weekend saw two birthdays (including my own), visiting family and friends, and general craziness. On to the good stuff! Main Quest Continue to drop the extra weight and develop a positive body image (still) Active Missions 1. Run like the wind! [+3 STA] Last challenge, I chopped off about a quarter of my 5K time just by actually running the whole thing. This time around, I want to ease my way into a better time. My best so far is 29:38, so the grading will go as follows: A: 5K in less than 27 minutes B: 5K in 27-2
