Elinox Never Gives Up

Main Quest
To live a healthy and balanced life by exercising and trying to eat healthy.
 
My motivation
I eat 1200 calories per day, M-F with blow meals on weekends. It’s been over 3 months since my last challenge and I want to get back into the regiment of it, so I’m back! And I’m with the Rangers for this challenge.

I’ve been going to the gym, but it hasn’t been as focused on a particular area since I haven’t done a challenge in awhile. I intend to do some weightlifting, per my usual, but I want to focus more on other smaller quests this time around. 
 
I enjoy doing themed workouts and for this challenge it will be Galaxy Quest because it’s been awhile since I had a set workout routine and I want to get back into the habit, therefore I should never give up and never surrender!

 

1. “Never Give Up. Never Surrender!” -Captain Taggart

 

Walking 
It’s a great workout and fairly easy, so I’m once again going to be walking. Plus, the crew of the NSEA Protector have to walk around a lot when they go to help the Thermians.

 

Scoring: /30 miles in 4 weeks (7.5 miles per week)
Reward: +3 STA & +3 DEX


2. “By Grabthar's hammer, by the suns of Worvan, you shall be avenged.” -Dr. Lazarus

 

Weightlifting
I enjoy weightlifting; it makes me feel good about my pathetic human body and it’s got real-world, practical purposes. However, it’s been awhile since I did it seriously, so I’m going to be easing back into it. I’m going lower than I probably need to, but I can adjust the starting weights accordingly.

 

Bench press: 45lbs → 60lbs
Squat: 50lbs → 75lbs
Barbell curl: 15lbs → 20lbs (with good form!)
Deadlift: 50lbs → 75lbs
Pullups - 1 with good form

 

Scoring: /5
Reward: +5 to STR (1 for each achieved)

 

3. “I'm not even supposed to be here. I'm just "Crewman Number Six." I'm expendable. I'm the guy in the episode who dies to prove how serious the situation is. I've gotta get outta here.” - Guy Fleegman

 

Sweet Treats

I’m still addicted to sugary, processed sweet stuff! During the week, I want to try to stick to snacks like fresh fruit, popcorn and nuts. 

Score: /20
Reward: +2 to CON & +2 to CHA

Ummm, you know you posted in the Rangers, right?

 

Oops! I meant to join the Rangers, and did, but apparently I copy/pasted some old stuff which had Druids listed instead. :P

Hello,

 

I was searching the Internet yet again for some way to get my picky self to eat more vegetables and other healthy foods and found your post from years ago:

 

"Picky Eater Considering Paleo

By elinox, December 15, 2014 in Paleo/Primal"

As I was scrolling through, I realized that I'd responded to that message too! It made me wonder how you were doing with your eating habits. I was pleasantly surprised to see you still here! I only show up about once per year. :-/ I announce my plan and never make it a day. :-P

 

Anyway, I just wanted to say, "You are doing great! Keep it up!"

 

Peace

While I'm still not that into veggies, I have been doing much better with other foods so as to not be considered a picky eater any more. I am always willing to try tnew hings now, particularly when we're in a foreign country. :D
