The first leg of my oddysey


ExpectJade

Recommended Posts

This oddysey of mine is all about finding the best version of myself.
In order to do this i need to build some strength, do some speech therapy and do some walking.

Goal 1: Strength

In order to develop some basic muscle strength and get used to a routine i set a simple goal of doing a few excercises.
3 sets wide squats
3 sets of incline push ups

Planking

 

Reward, if i complete 80% i earn a strength point

 

I didn't specify the reps because i mean to set a baseline at day 1, and build up everyday.

 

Goal 2: Distance
In order to get somewhere on my oddysey i have a distance goal of 30km's a week. These can be done running, walking or cycling

Reward, if i complete 80% i earn a constitution point

Goal 3: Speech therapy
I have to do my speech therapy homework every day.

Reward if i complete 90% i earn a charisma point

Echoing the sentiments above! Nice and specific. Looking forward to seeing you progress (which will happen in any case, since learning what doesn't work is also progress). But I also wish you a nice, boringly consistent challenge :) Onwards!

Day 1 update

 

Goal 1

3x15 wide squats
3x15 incline push ups
20secs of planking

 

Goal 2

I went for a walk with my dad, we needed some together time to talk about the next phase of my transition. The talk in itself was good, so i am happy about that :)

As for my weekly goal i can list of 8 kilometers of distance!

 

Goal 3
Speech therapy homework is done!

For those wondering, the speech therapy is something i do to help my transition. It is all about raising the pitch and resonance of my voice and learning certain, female mannerisms and speech patterns. Because voice is more than just the pitch or tone.

All in all a good start!

Really happy to hear your dad is so supportive of you. That's got to make a huge difference.

I wish I could say my parents are the same way, but I haven't told them. They weren't exactly great when it was just a case of me being gay. Still aren't, sadly. But my chosen family support me, and that counts for a lot.

Sad to hear your family has such an issue  with who you are, luckilly you surrounded yourself with a good chosen family! 
If you ask me a chosen family can be more important anyway.

The only member of of my family who knows if my little brother, who said 'you do you' and has acted as if nothing has changed, which is nice. Everyone else is some shade of bigot and I am not ready for any of those confrontations. But you're right about the chosen family, they're incredible people. I got lucky there for sure.

I agree that a chosen family can be more important.  I know I’m a random dude from

the Adventurers who is in a totally different situation, but we’ve developed an amazing little family here and I’m here to listen, support, and cheer for you.

Just so you know I have a standing invitation to any forum member whose family of origin does not accept who they are, or who simply has an emotionally unhealthy family, to consider me a family member of their choice.

I cried reading this.

 

(good tears, I just get a little emotional about this sort of thing)

 

And I am so, so happy to call you a part of my family.
