cn3wton - Food Showdown


Recommended Posts

EZK56-SU8AAYE2n.jpg

 

This challenge will be themed around the game Hunt Showdown. The premise of the game is that 12 hunters (in teams of 2 or 3) are dropped into world. They must find clues to find the lair of one of 3 bosses. Defeat the boss, and extract with the bounty. It's PVP so other teams can attack you. I quite enjoy the game and think I found a pretty nifty way to Theme this challenge around it. I will be picking monsters/bosses of my own for a few different reasons. Mainly there are 5 weeks and only 3 bosses. But also I want something that fits that weeks theme.

 

Each week the target will get progressively harder and harder. I will have to obtain "Clues" to find the boss, defeat the Boss, and deal with any potential PVP to complete that week.

 

CLUES

Each week the number of "Clues" will increase. Just like last challenge. 1 for week 1, 2 for week 2, etc. In the spirit of weight loss and better nutrition, a clue will be discovered by eating clean AND tracking that days calories. It's a pretty simple step but building up like this feels like the way to go.

 

BOSS

A challenge that will need to be defeated to earn a bounty for that week. Since I am starting 1 week late there will be 4 bosses for me to face. These are going to be non work out related goals this time around.

 

  1. The Butcher - (Challenge) Get my grill cleaned and set up and prepare a meal for myself and my family at my house.
  2. The Spider - (Challenge)  Get the "tractor Shed" area of my house cleaned out and filled in with crushed stone.
  3. The Assassin - (Challenge) Get extra crap out of my apartment so I don't have totes sitting everywhere.
  4. Scrapbeak - (Challenge) Have the garage completely cleaned out and mopped.

 

PVP

A friendly competition against friends (and possible forum members!) to keep me motivated. Defeating the other participants isn't the goal.

 

In the style of the last challenge each week will get progressively harder. The overall goal of this challenge is going to be weight loss. But I know how finicky the scales can be and lose "2lbs a week" isn't really a great goal. I am hoping to achieve that (or more) but I will not set prescribed numbers.

 

I am going to ponder the challenge a bit but wanted to get the general idea ready to go!

Great choice here.  I haven't played myself but I eagerly devoured every Showdown video my favorite streamers put out a while back.  Such a neat game, and the extraction process is positively nerve-wracking!!!!

🤣 Great minds certainly think alike because I did something just like this on my challenge this month too.  Maybe we'll get the opportunity to face off in an accountability head-to-head or co-op challenge!

Hunt Showdown is fun with the right people. I don't take it too seriously and it helps. I had to quit for awhile because it was stressing me out because I was taking it too serious. I decided long ago I was done playing games that made me feel that way, but I knew that I could enjoy the game if I let the stupid things go.

 

A face off sounds great! I was thinking of doing something different each week. Have an open kind of challenge. I will post more about that today as I catch up and kick off this challenge!

Hey all, I am very much here and working on the challenge! I hope to update the initial post and get it officially rolling tomorrow.

 

I am going to be coming in late to the challenge but thats ok! Got a bunch of medical stuff done and waiting on results. That and closing on the house has kept me extra busy!

 

Back again soon!

The challenge is simplified but ready to go. I am considering the food portion done for this week, now I just have to defeat the "boss".

 

I would like to open up the PVP element to everyone for this week I will be focusing on walking. 

 

I challenge everyone that's able to walk a slightly difficult distance in a new place (if possible). Get out there and do it!

 

PREVIOUS CHALLENGE UPDATE: I was unable to reach Ultra Instinct this go around. I was not comfortable tackling a truly great workout with the dizziness and vertigo I had going on. That is ok. I still regard the last challenge as a huge success even if it I didn't finish the "final fight". I expect to do a similar theme in a future challenge.

Simple is good.  Good timing.  I was planning on finding a trail to walk this weekend for my first 'long' walk of the challenge.  I'll keep you posted.

Week 1 Review

 

Bounty - The Butcher - narrow escape

I was not able to get the grill up and running like I would have liked. I wheeled it out but couldn't get it to fire. Will try some things next week. I have decided that the bounties, as long as they are unlocked, can be done in a later week as long as the challenge is going

 

Clues - Found 1 Clue to find the butcher

 

PVP - While it wasn't as epic as I would have like I did walk with the family a bit on some of our land that I don't usually walk. So I will call this a half success! Hoping everyone who joined me for this weeks in challenge PVP enjoyed theirs!

 

I am now officially a homeowner! And as everyone keeps telling me the real work starts now. Family is coming to divvy up the things left in the home by my grandparents. I was a bit frustrated as I wanted to be there for it. Mainly because I wanted to go through the memories and be with my family as we have not really been together since COVID. But it is what it is.

 

I worked both Saturday and Sunday for my business nearly 20 hours. We have a big project we are wrapping up that will bring in some much needed cash but it sucked losing my entire weekend. 

 

On to the next week and the next bounty!

I did get a walk in.  We walked a loop around a lake.  I couldn't remember how long it was and I wasn't up for the whole thing but we ended up going over half way before thinking about turning around.  Since it was over half way we just kept going.  Turns out it was a 5k.  The dog loved it too but she was exhausted.  I haven't taken her out for long walks in a long time and we haven't spent much time at the dog park either.

Congrats on the walk! I did something similar when I first got Ryker. I met up with the people who owned his brother and we walked and went to a local festival. I checked my app and we had walked over 10 miles during the course of the day. I was exhausted and so was the dog! But theres nothing quite like a long walk!

Week 2 (for me, technically week 3) has been a rough one food wise. The last 2 weeks I have been putting in overtime at both jobs. I spent more time working than I did at home and thats including sleep!

 

Im going to give myself the clues this week even though I technically didn't earn them. But thats ok. The second bounty task should be done by the weekend and I am very excited for it!

 

We are taking the weekend off from the business so I will have my first free weekend in months. I actually think I am going to clean up the garage and do some housework.

 

I forgot to post a PVP idea for this week so I understand if no one has time but I think a general simple PVP is in order. And that is "Try something new". It could be trying a new food, preparing a new dish, trying a new exercise, anything along those lines. Something to step slightly out of our comfort zone.

I am pleased to announce that the Spider Bounty has been claimed! I cleaned out and leveled everything and am ready to tamp it down. I am very happy with it. I even spent the day yesterday putting up a new axe throwing target on the outside of the shed! Its near the bonfire can't wait to have people over to hang out and have some fun!

 

The Butcher bounty is still up for grabs. Just didn't have the time this weekend.

 

All in all Im on to my 3rd week (technically the 4th week). And while its not going as well as the previous challenge I am moving forward.

Things are going at a great pace! 

 

The beginning of this challenge was a bit rocky to be sure. But thanks to a friend diving deep into turning our lives around with me I am reinvigorated and ready to keep pushing.

 

The next bounty this week is going to be obtainable. I am going to start moving things out of my apartment so I have a bit more room to breathe. I am also going to get a place set up for my grill and smoker. I want to bbq a lot in general. So I have working on ideas for that now.

Thank you! I'm trying to find a way to use it more. Right now having to wheel it out and set it up deters me from using it. I think having a spot where its pretty much ready to go would go a long way!

It is tons of fun! And while its certainly not as safe as not throwing axes. With the proper precautions its actually relatively safe!
