elinox Posted December 2, 2019 Report Share Posted December 2, 2019 I’m actually starting a week early, in the hopes of getting a decent jump on weight loss for this challenge and to make it 4 weeks. Main Quest To live a healthy and balanced life by exercising and trying to eat healthy. My motivation I've successfully dropped weight by counting calories, but I’ve been slacking with this a lot. I need to get back into the habit of eating better and getting more exercise. I know the holiday season, basically from Thanksgiving through New Year’s, is really hard food-wise to be good, but I need to do better. And I’ve got a performance at the end of December that I want to look my very best for! Smaller Quests 1. Cookie Counter - Eating Habits In an effort to drop some stubborn weight and to knuckle down again, I’m dropping to 1000 calories per day M-F. Mostly because I shouldn’t be eating the sweet treats in the evenings anyway. Those 200 calories are always spent on things like Oreos, which they shouldn’t be! To be a bit lenient since it's the holidays, I’m not including Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or Dec 27th for a family function and my performance. Scoring: x/17 Reward: +5 CON & +5 CHA 2. Walking in a Winter Wonderland - Walking Walking is a good filler exercise and it’s mildly enjoyable because I get to watch TV while I do it. Scoring: x/30 miles in 4 weeks (6 miles per week) Reward: +2 STA EDIT: I upped this from 24 miles to 30 miles because I seemed to be really succeeding in this, so I upped the difficulty on 12/9/19. 3. Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree - Weight Training It’s been too long since I lifted heavy things (June 2019!), so I want to add weight training back into my gym routine. Bench press: 45lbs → 60lbs Squat: 50lbs → 75lbs Deadlift: 50lbs → 75lbs Scoring: +1 for each achieved Reward: +3 to STR 5 Quote Level 38 Lupine Pirate = STR: 98 || DEX: 91 || STA: 102 || CON: 76 || WIS: 88 || CHA: 75 Current Challenge: Past Challenge List: Challenges 1-38 Battle Log: Battle On, Eli!
