elinox Posted January 6, 2020 Report Share Posted January 6, 2020 Main Quest To live a healthy and balanced life by exercising and trying to eat healthy. My motivation As it’s the new year, full of promise and potential, I thought I’d go big or go home, right out of the gate. I need to get back to my regular calorie counting diet with healthy doses of exercise as I’ve fallen out of practice with both. I’ve maintained the 1200 calories per day, M-F with blow meals on the weekends and have been going to the gym for about 45 minutes M-F, but I’ve found loopholes and caved in more than I should so I’m knuckling down again, mostly to be better, but also because I’ve got my first real physical at the end of January and want to drop some pounds before then. Even though I enjoy weight lifting, I feel like I need to drop some weight first before being able to properly tone up. Smaller Quests 1. Walking This seems to fit well into: 1. What I am willing to do for exercise (ie. NOT running!) and 2. What I can do for exercise over my lunch break without making me too exhausted or too sweaty. Scoring: x/40 miles in 4 weeks Reward: +4 to STA (+1 for every 10 miles completed) 2. Yoga I enjoy yoga and so to add some balance to my walking, I will be doing the 30 Days of Yoga from Darebee again. Scoring: x/30 days of yoga Reward: +3 to WIS (+1 for every 10 days completed successfully) 3. Eating Better This is the big one for this challenge as I’ve done both #1 and #2 before with other challenges. I’ve cut down on my processed sugar in challenges before too, but this time, I really need to buckle down so it sticks long-term. No sugary snacks M-F and more veggies instead and only 1 blow day on weekends! I will be cutting out the processed junk food and as many carbs as I can while eating healthy. I will also be trying to limit my blow meals to 1 weekend day, rather than Friday night through Sunday. This worked when I first lost the weight, so it should hopefully, kickstart this again for me! I’m also going to attempt to cut out my weekday soda as it’s wasted, processed sugar. If I need a caffeine boost in the afternoon, I will have more coffee or a Bai. 1. No soda (save for ginger ale, as it helps my digestion) 2. No processed, sugary junk foods M-F and limited on the weekends 3. More veggies 4. 1 blow day per weekend Scoring: x/5 weekends of only having 1 blow day x/25 of not having sugary snacks M-F Reward: +4 to CON for weekend success & +4 to CHA for sugary snacks weekdays 1 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!
