Looks like we have some second years and hopefully a few freshly sorted people here as well. As the portrait of the Fat Lady swings forward (this challenges password is "pudding") we welcome you all to House Gryffindor.

 

In honor of tradition I'll do a little summary of our members once people have introduced themselves.

So I have been checking out the mini challenge and I was very impressed that I could barely find a single adventurer without a reply on their thread. I decided to look if nerds in other places need help and I noticed that plenty of Rangers seem to lack support. So I thought that if any of you didn't complete the mini challenge yet you could help out our brothers and sisters over there in the Ranger profession.

Week 2 Update:

#1 - F - Didn't do a single push-up. This is horrible. I can't improve if I don't do them. So I shall be doing them today.

#3 - A+ - Only used up one of my cheats!

#4 - I signed up for Russian Classes. (+.33 CHA) Read but didn't finish the book, and took my first GRE test (+.5 WIS)

Week 3 Summary:

Goal #1 F - I have this weird mental thing about push-ups. I'm scared. Simple as that. Whenever I go down into a push up position I instantly think about me falling on my face and breaking all my teeth and dislocating my jaw. That's all I think about and imagine the blood and then I just stay there until I tell myself that today is not the day I go down. Yeah... help?

Goal #2 B - I'm at 39 out of 45 push ups. Woot. Just 6 away? Heck yes I can do this shit. And to think when I started the last challenge I couldn't even do one sit up.

Goal #3 - I went one over. Wow!!! Right? I mean it's crappy but still just one. Not too shabby. During week 1, I went over one time, the second week I didn't go over and only used up one cheat. This time I went over one time. I know that if I were "in the moment" I wouldn't go over. So week 4 is about being in the moment and realizing that no I do not want a coke. And how about I not spend $3 on something I don't want to drink? Just saying.

Goal #4 - Been reading the same first book. Lordy, history is tougher than I remember. It takes me 40 mins to read 20 pages. It's so sad. But I have to keep going. I already had my interview for the internship and I start on the 27th.

Nice job with the last three goals, making some steady progress.

 

For the push-ups, maybe some progression would be good? In Convict Conditioning for push-ups you start at Wall Push-ups then head to Incline, Kneeling, Half, and then finally a Full Push-up. Maybe use that to gradually make your way to a full push-up so it's no longer "oh god I'm going to knock my teeth out" to "Okay can do 50 Incline push-ups with no issue, I can handle this". 

 

An idea, use it if it might help.

Thanks I've done the wall and slighty incline push up. This time I am at the incline and this is where I freak out.

I will not be leveling for this challenged. I learned a lot about what my priories and in turn what my main quest is. Currently it is not the FBI. If you check out my Life Goal and my madness about the PhD that should have given me a clue. Anywhoo, 


 


Goal #1 - Failed


Goal #2 - Failed. 


Goal #3 - B! I went a total of 30 days without coke. OMFG. YES!!!!


Goal #4 - - Read 1 book, I took 1 GRE test, I started my internship, saved $132 for my transcripts, I signed up and started!! my Russian classes, I visited with my former professor.
