I wrote a post yesterday, but Tron ate it.  

 

Racquetball this morning was fun.  I played terrible.  Head was not in it and I let a few bad plays effect my game.  At least, my illness is almost gone. 

 

Crushing the diet sticking to the fruit and veggie routine.  Getting sick didn't knock me off too bad.

Illness hurt my progress physically in Week 3 and 4, so I'll be grading those weeks on a curve.  I'm staying on track. 

 

I'm going to ditch the incentives for next challenge with a plan to revamp them.  I've saved up the money for my Black Belt celebratory gift and 40th birthday present to myself, an Arashikage tattoo, and earned it with some pretty epic accomplishments.  I may get it done in March as the schedule looks good then and not as good in the fall around my actual birthday.  I also saved up enough to purchase a new laptop, which I now need since the old one burned up literally (ion batteries are dangerous, btw).  After I get the laptop and tattoo, all my saved cash will be considered spent and I'll start back at zero dollars, but I'm going to make it tougher.     

 

I also need to revamp how I am using Habitica.  It is too easy.  The tool could be more useful and motivating, but I'm just going through the motions with it. 

 

World 5 Level 4 Challenge GRADES:

FITNESS:

  • Cardio: Speed and Stamina - 400 min total, 80 weekly.  Track time and distance. 

    STA +1   A = 370 min, short in Week 3
     

  • Walking: Fortify the Spine - 1250 min total, 250 weekly. 
    CON +1   A = 1410 min, short in Week 3
     

  • Exercise: HIIT Lifting and Bodyweight - 400 min total, 80 weekly. 

    STR +1, STA +1   A = 320 min, scored a zero in Week 3
     

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

    DEX +1  A = 700 min, weekly met
     

  • Karate: Training and Practice - 1250 min total, 250 weekly.  Track progress towards belt.  Track improvement on all material. 
    DEX +1, STR +1   A = 1180 min, short in Week 2 (30 min), 3 (100 min), and 4 (105 min).  Notebook is filling up with material.  Tuesday night classes are giving my loads of core exercises and HIIT workouts. 
     

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 = Tracked.  Need a new metric here or just leave out the stat bonus.
     
  • Keep on cutting out the crap - No CheezIts, limit snacking at work, cut down portion sizes.  Drink more water.  Track fruit and veggies for 5 cups a day.
    CON +1  A = 175 cups total, hit 5 cups or more most days, only 6 days below.  The routine has worked really great. 

 

LIFE:

  • Get Stuff Done - Complete 115 Hours of various Chores and Maintenance, with at least 23 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 = 125 hours, short in Week 2 without much work that weekend being dead sick.

  • 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 = Some hard work around the house early in the challenge.  Last week, some great Toastmasters work.  All challenge long I've been making epic strides at work.
