  1. Mad Hatter's tea party

    For the ones that already know me - OHAI! For the ones that don't - Yay, glad you're here! I'm a dabbler in all the shiny assassiny things like circus and pole and climbing. Some say I get easily distracted -SQUIRREL! Oh uhmm... yeah they're probably right. But that won't stop me from DOING ALL THE THINGS (badly). I'll add some more goal type thingies when I feel like it, but for now I want to take off the challenge pressure and just hang out here in this battle log. Hope you're cool with that.
  2. BB's battle log

    Hey folks, first time doing a log like this so let's see how it goes. I'm doing a monk ranger type hybrid, and my little training notebook isn't makin the cut anymore. - I'm gonna try to post my training, and most of my meals (I sometimes forget what I eat because I'm a college student who don't cook most of my meals). - for training I do a little bit of martial arts almost every day. I do light cardio most days too, and I've got a schedule of calisthenics and lifting that I'll post eventually. I'm just trying to get as well rounded a training system as I can to support my martial arts. Speaking of I train in taekwondo (just got 1st Dan woot) as well as a little Hung Gar Kung fu and Judo because I like variety.
  3. Elennare is Spooky

    Last challenge went fairly well, if far from perfect. I also really liked the format, so I'm going to give that another go. With that, on to the new challenge! Let's Get Spooky! It's Halloween season (shut up, I know most of this challenge will be in November, I don't care. ), which means it's time to let your dark side out to play (or at least out to dress up). But how spooky am I? Let's find out! 0-36 points - Nice try, but you're adorable 37-72 points - That's a bit creepy 73-108 - Ok, you're scary 109-144 - Terrifying! Err...that's the wrong kind of terrifying. Try again... That's better. The Quests! Don't Eat Out! Eat better! - 1 point for each meal I don't purchase already-made from a shop of some sort (restaurant, cafe, grocery store counter, etc). Save money! - My wallet sure is spooky right now. It looks empty when I open it, but there's this weird sucking sound coming from it. I think it might be the credit card? It sure feels like it's trying to eat any future vacation plans...or Christmas presents...actually, I think it's going to suck me in if I look too close! 15 points/week with less than $100 spent on food purchases (not counting grocery shopping for real food) and other incidentals. I may drop the amount I'm allowed to spend to get points if this turns out to be too easy. I've got exactly one year to pay off the credit card and save enough money for a trip to Hawaii if I'm going to succeed with my epic quest of taking the family to Hawaii for my 10th wedding anniversary. It's not looking like we'll be able to go without putting it all on the card at the moment. 5 bonus points are available each week, zero week through week 3, for getting a meal plan together for the following week. Groceries to be able to follow it must be purchased ahead of time to get the bonus points. As always, I will be continuing to try (and somewhat failing) to juggle derby practices, working out, spending time with my family, and getting enough sleep as well as my quests. Edit: removed some of the items that have turned out to not be feasible right now, and readjusted the points accordingly.
  4. Korranation's Back Onboard

    Korranation's back onboard I had to take a break from the challenges for a bit. Here's a little backstory to it So here's the goals/objectives part. Part One - Food Pictures - take pictures of all food (excluding repeating meal prepped items). Totally stealing this from Deffy Tracking - Put all items in MFP the night before Snacking - all processed food snacking is banned. I found snacking on baby carrots gets me through the workday and working on a pomegranate gets me through the evening. Part 2 - Health Workout - I'll either do +30 min on the rowing machine or the modified NFA workout Sleep - Go to bed minus looking at the phone before 10:30 Water - drink +8 cups of water. Or drink 2 cups of water 30 minutes before every meal. Part 3 - leveling up Language - practice Spanish on duolingo every day. Gotta keep that streak bonus going. Learning - spend +30min every day prepping to apply for grad school. That means either writing a personal letter, reaching out to old professors for letters of recommendation, and studying for the GRE... or doing classes at khan academy or reading peer-reviewed papers. Loving - Do some self-care every day/evening. (e.g. some work de-stressors, other non-work ideas, avoiding the non-profit compassion fatigue pitfall, yoga... LET DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. NeverThatBored: Action Absorbs Anxiety

    Action absorbs anxiety. My cousin used this phrase recently, and it's a concept I apply all the time, but I'd never heard that phrase before and it's been stuck in my head ever since then. I moved away from my home of 4 years in NY a little under 2 months ago, and it's been a struggle to adjust to being in a new place. I'm staying at my boyfriend's place, but he's the only person I know here. I don't have any friends or family, and I work from home so I don't even have work people to socialize with during the day. Plus, I just had wrist surgery so I haven't been able to go to my usual activities like Aikido. I miss having friends, even just friendly acquaintances, who I could regularly see and spend time around. I miss knowing how to get around. I miss having a familiar grocery store to go to. I miss a lot of things. I knew exactly what I was getting into when I made this decision, but the struggle is still there. I've been doing a pretty good job of exploring the area and getting out. i did some yoga classes for a bit before I had the actual surgery, I've made a list of different parks and such to explore and I've gone to explore them. I've found doctors, etc. But the anxiety's obviously still there, and it builds up when I don't take enough action. So, this challenge is all about taking action. A little background -- I've been focusing on one habit per challenge this year instead of tackling a bunch of things at once: So for Challenge #9, I want to continue to take action in different categories. I'm not sure I can really call this one habit, but whatevs. 1. Fitness I can't do a whole lot with my wrist recovering, sadly including running. So instead, I want to focus on the things I can do. There are two categories. A - Walking. I get 1 point per day that I walk 60 minutes, and I get a second point for any additional 30 minute increments. B - I get one point per other fitness activity I do. I'm aiming for 4/week. I have a weekly stretch video and a yoga video (with slight modifications) that I can do. I can also do some workouts made up of squats, lunges, dead horse crunches, bicycles, flutter kicks, russian twists, etc. since none of those things should bother me too much. I'll be flexible about which ones I do. 2. Food Since I won't need any extra energy for the low intensity stuff described above, it's actually a great time to focus in on diet. If I end the day feeling like I made mostly good choices and with a net positive effect on my waistline, I get one point. If I make a good decision in a restaurant (which is a huge problem area for me) I get an extra point. 3. Work Working from home can be challenging. It's harder to get into the swing of things. I've been working on a project with very few intense deadlines, so that makes it even more challenging. I get work done, but I always sort of feel like I should do more. It's kind of embarrassing because I've always been a hard worker, but between an old manager who never assigned me work and working from home, I've somehow accidentally overridden my good habits with lazier ones. So. I get one point for the morning and one point for the afternoon. I earn these points by doing more than I have to - either helping someone out, or getting ahead on something, or whatever. 4. One-Time Tasks I have some one off things that always need to get done. For example, I'm planning to go to the DMV on Monday to register my car, since that's kiiiind of overdue. Also, there are places I want to explore in the area. This one's harder to score because it's not necessarily something that I need to do daily and the target score will flex depending on my to do list for the week. I'll write out the list later and decide the scoring requirements week by week for that one. 5. Recurring Tasks This can be anything from doing my laundry to doing some extra tidying, etc. I'll get one point per day that I do a recurring chore. I can get extra points for extra tasks. Bonus Points Any time I take an extra action specifically as a way to handle and manage anxiety, I get a bonus point. This can happen across any of the above categories. Rewards I'm planning to figure out some sort of reward system for this challenge. There's a base score I'm aiming for in each category, and then bonus points I can earn in most of them. So I'll create some reward tiers and each extra tier I hit will earn an extra reward. TBD.
