World 5 Level 2 Challenge GRADES:

FITNESS:

  • Cardio: Speed and Stamina - 500 min total, 100 weekly.  Track time and distance. 

    STA +1  A = 520 min, weekly met
     

  • Walking: Fortify the Spine - 1250 min total, 250 weekly. 
    CON +1  A = 1860 min, weekly met
     

  • Exercise: HIIT Lifting and Bodyweight - 300 min total, 60 weekly. 

    STR +1, STA +1  A = 380 min, weekly met
     

  • Flexibility: Stretching and Physical Therapy - 700 min total, 140 weekly.  

    DEX +1  A = 700 min, weekly met
     

  • Karate: Training and Practice - 1500 min total, 300 weekly.  Track progress towards belt.  Track improvement on all material. 
    DEX +1, STR +1  A = 1635 min, weekly missed once.  Halloween and Extra Life week was difficult to get karate time in.  I fell 70 min short, which would be the time lost those three days (Halloween night, 24-hour Game Day, and the Day After Game Day).  I did workout those days, but I mismanaged my time into the wrong buckets on other days to get those 70 min.  I had 60 min extra of lifting exercise.

DIET:

  • Lean Body - Track weight. Complete measurements before or during Week 1 and again during or after Week 5.  Looking to maintain 150 lbs or less while shrinking my waist and building muscle.
    CON +1  A = weight tracked.  My waist is doing well.  Thanksgiving break was a wash though.  I did well on Thanksgiving and the leftovers, but pizza, Chinese, and Roy Rogers were not great outside of that. 
     
  • Keep on cutting out the crap - No CheezIts, limit snacking at work, cut down portion sizes.  Drink more water.
    CON +1  C = Cutting down.  Water up.  Fries and popcorn though. 

 

LIFE:

  • Get Stuff Done - Complete 110 Hours of various Chores and Maintenance, with at least 22 hours each week.  Chores and Maintenance are the following areas (goal hours for challenge)
    • Dishes (16), Laundry (10), Cooking/Cleaning/Dusting/Vacuuming/Trash/Other (32), Yard Work (2), Animal Care (24), Home Renovation and Auto Maintenance (10)

          WIS +1, CHA +1  A = 116 hours, weekly met

  • Epic Quest - Complete something EPIC!  I want to be able to look back at my four week challenge and say, "that was the challenge I did X".  My challenges tend to be a lot of the same old.  I've given myself plenty to improve in small steps, but I also want to see big strides in the things I've been working on.  What box can I check?  What have I been procrastinating?  What am I focusing on?

          WIS +2, CHA +2  A = Won Spookiest Trunk at Trunk-or-Treat.  Extra-Life Game Day was an awesome success.  Striped and ready for Black Belt test.  Performed in my daughters' David and Goliath play.  Birthday was fantastic.  Thanksgiving trip to Massachusetts was therapeutic and fun.  I've almost wrapped up two of my Toastmaster Paths.  And I am coaching two amazing people in Toastmasters!  What wasn't Epic about the last 5 weeks?

 

 

INCENTIVES!  Working hard for CASH!  ($516.85 carried over)  $349.25 earned!  $866.10 to carry over.  I have some expenditures to add, but I think I need to make this harder.
 

  1. REWARD:  For each week in which I complete 25 or more hours of Chores and Maintenance, I will put aside $10 to spend how I see fit. 
    CONSEQUENCE:  For any week where I complete less than 22 hours, I will give up $10 of saved cash.
     
  2. REWARD:  $5 for each Personal Project hour
    CONSEQUENCE : Lose $10 for each week without at least one hour for Personal Projects.
     
  3. REWARD:  $5 for each HIIT workout.  For a healthy heart among other things, HIIT is recommended by my health coach.  I don't like them, but they are a necessary evil.
    CONSEQUENCE: Lose $5 for each week without a HIIT workout.
     
  4. REWARD:  $5 for each day with weight below 154.0 lbs.
    CONSEQUENCE:  Lose $5 each day with weight above 156.0 lbs. 
     
  5. REWARD: $5 for 1 Sprint/Run/Bike workout (minimum 10 reps/30 min/10 min), $10 for second, $20 for third and up. 
    CONSEQUENCE:  Lose $10 for each week without one of these workouts.

 

BONUSES: 

  • $1 for each hour working on Jedi Training (mentoring, reading/writing, charity, meditation, IJRS lessons). 
  • $2 for each hour working on Toastmasters including meetings.
  • $2 for each Home Renovation or Auto Maintenance hour

 

PENALTIES:

  • Lose $10 for eating pizza, candy, popcorn, CheezIts, pretzels, potato chips.
  • Lose $10 for more than 6 Dr Peppers a week or more than 6 meals with cheese a week.
