*A new challenger appears* (with Warrior_Princess)


Recommended Posts

Brave adventurers, I join you today after so many years lurking and questioning
It's an honor to fight by your side

I decided to join because of the accountability task in the Academy. I've been unhappy about my weight and some other aspects of my life for at least 7 years now and want to see it through this time.
Finding like-minded people to take this journey together seems like the obvious plan.

 

Main Quest:

I am somebody healthy, that eats real food 80% of the time, is a size 4/EU 38 and goes to the gym 3 times a week

 

Challenges: 

- Go to bed between 22h30 and 23h to sleep at least 8 hours a day

- Not use bread for my meals, at home or in the office

- Have tea when I want to drink something in the office

 

I've started these challenges on April 5th. They will last until April 25th.
These are things that I want to turn into habits, I don't plan into reintroducing bread to my diet.

 

About me: 

I’m a half Vulcan trekkie on a journey to be healthier every day, approaching my 25th birthday. Also a warrior/druid hybrid. I've been having to push myself to the gym (do weight training) lately but after I'm done I feel so powerful and happy for being there. I've been dealing with anxiety a lot lately so I will be focusing on lowering stress, taking it easy, breathing and sleeping properly, treating my body with care, specially when it comes to feeding it with real food. I hope to  meditation and include some yoga.
I've learned to surf and it's one of my favorite things in life. I've also trained muay thai and it was pretty awesome.

One of the things I want to do (even more after I lose some weight) is to cosplay. The character I'd be closer to is Beverly Crusher from Star Trek TNG but I'm also a big fan of T'Pol and Number One (Majel Barrett) and would love cosplaying them.

 

Arch-enemies:

Migraines

Poor sleep

Being tired since waking up

Anxiety

Stress

Busy life

Binge-eating

Sweets

**** Welcome and thanks for dropping by ****

welcome to NF.

 

glad you've decided to join us!

 

yes, the arch-enemies all seem so familiar!  would you please warp to my location and defeat them?

 

normally I'd turn on a send a garbled subspace distress call.  but would you know?

my equipment is fried.

 

I think they are cloaked; proceed with great caution. :)

All those references [emoji173]️

I think most of us deal with these things. It’s also good to remember we shouldn’t be so hard on ourselves and also be brave enough to take steps even if they’re small. Just keep on going.

Let me know when you’re in the area and I’ll be readying my torpedoes to help.

Welcome to the adventure. I love being by the sea too -always feel better after watching and listening to the waves. Can imagine that being able to be in and surfing must be a great experience


Thank you! I’ve never felt a deep connection with nature before surfing. You should try it!

Migraines

 

 

Migraines are the worst! I get them from low blood sugar, so it's been hard to cut back on what I eat. Sometimes Oreo-O's are the right amount of sugar to get rid of a forming headache, you know? It also can make it difficult to plan when to go to the gym - I usually need to eat a full meal before I work out or I can get a migraine from that too.

 

What are your migraine triggers?

Migraines are the worst, second that.
They hurt self-control so it’s harder to resist cravings and give in to my excuses to avoid the gym (and when they’re really bad they really incapacitate me from doing anything, my head feels super heavy)

A very clear trigger for me is related to sleep.
This week I got a FitBit Charge 2 and it showed me that I’m sleeping less than 8 hours most of the time, and sleeping bad (e.g little) is a trigger for me.
Also waking up in the middle of my sleep, going to bed late (after 23h), staying in bed for too long. I still don’t know how many hours I need to sleep to feel rested. I think it’s around 9.

Sorry this has been on my drafts for so long [emoji27]

A very late update [emoji33]
These challenges went well 80-90% of the time!
I’m going to keep my focus on sleep and change the eating side of the challenges to reflect a bigger priority: dealing with binge-eating.

Mine don't make my head feel heavy, but they get bad enough that I can't do anything but lay down. 

 

I've noticed if I sleep too long I get a migraine. I don't have to be up until noon or later most days (I usually get up around 10:30 anyways) so I can easily oversleep and get a headache from that. 

 

No need to apologize! I haven't been on in a few days, so I was even slower to reply!

 

Edit: I just realized, after I submitted this, that this is from the previous challenges. Whoops sorry

love your goal to cosplay bev crusher. i overly identify with her probably but mostly probably because of picard-issues.
