  1. Welcome, Guardians, to my 3rd (post-respawn) challenge! Over the course of the two prior challenges, I’ve made some observations as to what’s working for me, and, more importantly, what’s not working. Having taken this information into account, my challenges are getting an update. The gamification and such will still be there, it’s more about the content, tracking, and set up. If you would like to read the full, written out list of my observations, they can be found in the spoiler. You don’t have to read all that in order to follow this challenge, it’s just some insight and reasoning behind it. As some of you may have guessed, this is a Destiny themed challenge. I’ve been obsessed with this game since day 1, even more so than I ever was with Halo 2 (which is quite the feat, given that H2 was the game that turned me into a gamer). I’ve chosen this theme, not only for that reason, but because Destiny 2 came out on Sept 6 and I can’t get it off my mind, so I might as well incorporate it into other parts of my life. For those who are unfamiliar, here is a little background info from Destiny 1: “Destiny is set in the 28th century, in a post-apocalyptic setting. Humans had spread and colonized the Solar System with the help of a spherical entity known simply as "the Traveler". It reshaped planets and moons, and taught humanity new technologies and gave mystical powers that led to a time later called the Golden Age. An event known as "The Collapse", an attack from the Darkness, an unknown faction or entity, saw the dissolution of these colonies and left mankind on the brink of extinction. The only known survivors of the Collapse are those living on Earth, who were saved by the Traveler. Now the Traveler hovers above the last remaining human city as a large spherical body, and its presence gives the Guardians of the City—the last defenders of the human race—the ability to wield an unknown power. Upon mankind's first attempt to repopulate and reconstruct after the Collapse, it was discovered that hostile alien races have occupied mankind's former colonies and civilizations. The player takes on the role of a Guardian of the City, and is tasked with investigating and destroying these threats before the remnants of humanity are completely wiped out.” The situation as of Destiny 2: Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home. I am a Guardian - an Awoken, and a member of the Hunter class to be exact. I’ve reclaimed my Light, and have the ability to choose one of three subclasses: I typically go with the Gunslinger subclass, because it fits my play style best. I’m a short to mid range, sharp shooting run-and-gunner, who occasionally chooses to use a little stealth. It’s time for me to gather the Vanguard, fight the Red Legion, take down Gary-- I mean Ghaul -- and, most importantly, get back Cayde’s stuff! This challenge is 8 weeks long and has two parts, each spanning 4 weeks. Goals will be separated into 4 categories: Story Missions: These are the main goals - the meat and potatoes of my challenge, if you will. This is where most of the focus will be. Adventures: The side quests.These help me level up and gain more experience, but aren’t the main focus. Milestones: Tasks that must be completed within a set period of time. Some milestones have a certain date that they need to be done, while others need to be done within that part of the challenge (part 1 vs part 2). Lost Sectors: A type of ‘Patrol’ activity. I can do these at any time and at my own pace. They aren’t mandatory, but they are things that I would like to do by the end of the challenge. *Challenge drops 9/23/17*
  2. Hello, Posting on here is really scary honestly but I'm hoping that getting involved with the community will help me stay on track. I'm 28 years old and have been working and going to school for the last 10 years. That's how I would describe myself to people; I work and go to school and sometimes I get to play roller hockey. However, I finally graduated this month and am still searching for full time employment so I think it's time I cultivate a new identity. Over the last 4 or 5 years of school I've had lots of sleep deprivation, copious amounts of caffeine, forgetting to eat, and stress eating so I've gained probably around 60 pounds. During that time I've tried making changes to my diet and exercise, like eliminating fast food, incorporating more vegetables, eating several small meals a day, and getting regular exercise. Each time I got serious about it I would lose about 20 pounds and several inches but then something would come along (an assignment or exam) and I'd get stressed, get sick, fall behind and get more stressed, get poor grades and get depressed, and gain back all the weight and then some. Inevitably I got tired of the methods I was using anyway (although cutting out fast food and eating more vegetables has stuck). Eating several small meals a day and tracking calories made me constantly hungry and constantly thinking about what I was going to eat and when. I felt like my life revolved around food. And I hate cardio so I could never stay motivated to exercise. All that said, I fancy myself as adventurous, curious, athletic, and strong. Unfortunately, I don't really feel like any of those things. Hence, why I am ceasing to lurk and am finally joining the Rebellion! I'm hoping I can get out of my comfort zone to meet some new people, learn some new things, and reach my goals. Right now I'm aiming to improve my diet first and foremost. With the help of MyFitnessPal I've been tracking calories but I also want to focus on my macros. I seem to eat a ton of carbs and not very much protein. I hate cooking and am on a pretty tight budget so making the necessary changes might be difficult. If anyone has any advice, tips, simple recipes I'd love to hear them! As far as exercising, with the exception of playing roller hockey once a week I've been pretty sedentary for the last few months so I'm trying to work back into it. I figured something simple like playing disc golf a few times a week and doing yoga or TRX a few days a week would be a good approach but I can't seem to find any consistency so I'm hoping to find some accountability for myself here on the forums. Eventually I'd love to find a gym where I can train in Olympic weightlifting. It's also on my list to get more into hiking, biking, kayaking, and sailing now that I have more time. And of course play more hockey! Well, that everything I could possibly think to say about myself. I hope I can get to know some of you!
