Hello! This is my second challenge and my first as an assassin! MAIN QUEST: Lose fat, gain some muscle, feel comfortable in my own skin. I have already lost close to 65 lbs. (mostly from diet changes, I follow a ketogenic diet and have never felt better!) and I would like to lose another 20-40 lbs. I mainly want to get stronger and feel comfortable in my body so the number on the scale is less important to me than the way I feel. I want to maximize what my body is capable of- use my body efficiently, run faster, and master some cool aerial tricks- and I know I need to drop some weight to accomplish this. Quest #1: Attend 2-3 aerial classes per week. I have been taking aerial classes at a studio for the last few months. I have mainly been working on silks and recently started on trapeze. For the first part of the challenge I will be taking aerial fitness, intro static trapeze, and mixed aerial. When my studioâ€™s new session starts I will be taking stilt walking (new for me), aerial fitness, and mixed aerial. Quest #2: Run 3-4 times per week to prep for half marathon. I have three half marathons coming up- Rock n Roll STL in October, the Avengers Half Marathon in November and the Rebel Challenge (10K and Half Marathon) during Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend at Disneyland in January. I have only run 10K races at this point so I am working on increasing my distance and speed. My goal for January is to rock a slave Leia running outfit for the race. Quest #3: Keep to my diet. I have been on a keto diet for a while and recently I have been slipping up here and there and sabotaging my progress. I am not gaining any but my weight loss has been stalling. So this challenge I am going to work hard to minimize any off-plan foods and really track my food intake. Side Quest: Attend a trampoline aerobics class. I have wanted to try one of the Skyrobics classes at the Skyzone Indoor Trampoline Park, so I will make an effort to try it out at least once during this challenge. Cool, cool, cool.
