starpuck Posted September 6, 2022 Report Share Posted September 6, 2022 THE CHALLENGE!!! STARPUCK FIGHTS THE BEAST I've fought this beast before. He's often goes by the title Gloom Monster, but we're referring to him as The Beast on this challenge. He gets more powerful as summer ends and autumn gives way to winter. He's a little stronger this time around, because our heroine has been fighting a side of apathy lately. One of my greatest weapons against that is momentum. But to get momentum, you have to get a first step underfoot and follow it up with a second, and third and so on. Bio: Spoiler Yo, I'm Starpuck. I've been here at NF since 2013 if you can believe it! For any newcomers, this place is great. Quite honestly life changing. My weight and general state of health and fitness have ebbed and flowed since being here, but that's life and to be fair - the fluctuations have been smaller and the slips much more short lived. Going into autumn/winter always becomes my most challenging time as I bloom best in sun and good weather, and well, I live in Chicago. I'm a gamer girl, sitting pretty in her mid 40s, who wants to be healthy inside and out, and keep active so I can enjoy the golden years with lots of fun things to do. I'm a HUGE D&D fan, (and other RPG systems too), I'm a gamer (PC games) and also really into music, art, travel, outdoors, biking, oooh just about everything. (Ranger for Life!) I'm actively working on getting some anxiety (over thinker here) under control and take some next big steps in the life quest. ON TO THE CHALLENGE Doing much of the same old same old! In fact, I found a google sheet tracker I made in May 2021 and just changed a few of the things I plan on tracking. I really need to get my food consistency back in place. I do fine at work and during the early part of the week. Going into the Thursday gaming night and weekend tends to unravel full tilt. Exercise is not a problem ever, but I'd like to be more focused in what I am choosing to do. Art is back on the table, on top of me trying to practice three instruments at once. (I did mention Ranger, right?) Goals: Track food daily. If unable to track on a weekend meal, eat sensibly, guesstimate cals. Exercise 5x a week. Art some times a week. Music - try to get 3-4 practices on each instrument, length of time not important. (** Might switch this to amount of time on each per week. Some days I get on a roll, and might jam out for a good amount of time on just one instrument.) Track Spending. I gotta get this under control too. As a side note, I am 8 sessions into our latest TTRPG game; Vampire the Masquerade. I am SO into this game right now, so lots of art for it has been kicked out. It's also where I have borrowed the idea of fighting against the beast within. For vampires, that beast is their monstrous side. For me, it's apathy and inconsistency as we hit the S.A.D heavy days. I'll try and catch up on sharing some art (and a quick backdrop as to what it means.) Vampire Art Spoiler My character, Jules. A young Chicago musician (bass player) raised in the rock scene and embraced by an infamous Anarch who has a reputation for rolling into town, siring new vampires and leaving them to cause chaos in the wake. She was rescued by another Brujah who knew her mother, and took to showing her the ropes. A bit. Taking Zero Week to get slowly back into a better groove after this last hurrah, lol. See ya Rebels tomorrow! 7 Quote Level 82 ~*~ Ranger Deviant Art Gallery || YouTube Channel Current Challenge "It is difficult. All things worth keeping are."
