The Legend of Will: The Quest of Awesome!


Recommended Posts

Haha, Thanks! :D

I find that I feel really good about myself when I workout, so it's a bit of a release for me. With how bad of a failure I've felt like through out my high school years for constantly messing up with school work, and struggling with my ADHD (not that it cripples me, it's more of a "gift" that I need to figure out how to use), working out is one of those things I can do right, and do well. I feel empowered! I feel like I CAN overcome obstacles in my path, and be a total Bad Ass while doing it! I feel like I CAN and AM becoming a hero like Link, so I usually don't want that feeling to stop, which is why I just keep on working out. I'm like a little kid playing around with their friends: Even though I'm exhausted, tired, and my everything is burning, I still want to keep playing, because it's just too much fun XD

Over the years I've put too much self worth in a grade from a school, instead of in what I can do and what I'm good at; which is a bit of a hard habit to break. So working out kind of reminds me that I AM more than just a grade on a piece of paper.

(not saying school isn't important, because I am keeping up on my work; just saying working out can help remind me that there's much more to life than just that)

 

Just felt like rambling on for a while. Now I'm gona' go head to bed, because I'm up waaaaaay to late XD

See you tomorrow :)

Always great to hear when someone loves to work out and doesn't have to force it. I know what you mean though I always look forward to going to the gym and love the feeling of pushing myself to be a little better than I was last time :)

Today I will do what others won't, so that tomorrow I can do what others can't

Wow, Will. I am really impressed!

 

You're kicking my butt on those bicep curls. I am currently only at 17.5 lbs. You're definitely becoming a hero! (nodding)

 

Proud of you, seriously. And I love the attitude on working out! Awesome!

It's been quite some time since I was last exposed to Oracle of Seasons. This does bring back fond memories. You've done a fine job of molding the narrative of an OoS run into your timetable! Though my narrative allows for a bit more creative freedom, I'd reckon it's easier than what you've done here. Kudos!

Also, I can now with confidence add you as the third person to my list of "people who do so very high intensity workouts that I get tired even just reading about them"… the other two people being Cheechoe and Ronin.

Best of luck to you!

Hey sorry that it took me this long to respond, but I'm here now so let me do just that.

 

Always great to hear when someone loves to work out and doesn't have to force it. I know what you mean though I always look forward to going to the gym and love the feeling of pushing myself to be a little better than I was last time :)

Yep, it usually feels great to push myself, but I might not say I don't have to force it sometimes. Some times I get really wrapped up in something, that I forget to workout. like last Saturday, I had started playing the Sims 3 with my little sister, and we where having so much fun using cheats to see how much we could bend the game before it broke (Ex: editing NPC's, deleting objects, forcing a sim to age until they die of old age, and then forcibly aging the grim reaper just to see what happens [if you do it right, he'll turn into a adult, then an old man, then disappear]), that I completely forgot about working out.

It was fun though XD

 

Wow, Will. I am really impressed!

 

You're kicking my butt on those bicep curls. I am currently only at 17.5 lbs. You're definitely becoming a hero! (nodding)

 

Proud of you, seriously. And I love the attitude on working out! Awesome!

Glad you're proud! Make's me feel awesome about myself :D

I usually forget that I've accomplished a lot so far often when I get bogged down by my recent mistakes, so to hear that I can make people proud of me really lifts my mood, and reminds me that despite the fact that I've tripped up, I've also covered so much ground too. So thanks for telling me that :D

 

It's been quite some time since I was last exposed to Oracle of Seasons. This does bring back fond memories. You've done a fine job of molding the narrative of an OoS run into your timetable!

Glad I could make it onto that list :D

Although, I can see what the effects are of my workouts now. I haven't stretched in a while, and now I hurt all over. so before today's workout, I'm going to stretch a lot! might keep me from doing my best, but during my last workout, my arms where really hurting, so I don't want that again.

 

Speaking of workouts, I'll be posting what I've done after today's workout. I apologize for having not updated more frequently through out this challenge, so a mini goal for these last two weeks is to update every day. This has no bearing on what extra stats I get at the end, it's just something I want to try and do. I haven't posted, and also been as active on my team mates threads as I would have liked, so I'm going to do my best to turn that around starting today! See you all later tonight :D

I'll make sure to not push myself too hard. We're almost at the end of this challenge, and I wouldn't want to have to sit it out because I was too overzealous with my workouts. So I'll make sure that during today's workout I pay extra close attention to my wrist. If I can't do too many arm and upper body exercises today, expect a lot of running, or biking, or something aerobic.

And yes, I shall have an awesome Thursday! Thank you! And go have an awesome Thursday yourself :D

 

Did you eat your veggies for today yet, Will?

 

Good job on the rest of your goals!  Rawr!

Kiwi, I haven't even gotten breakfast yet XD

But yes, I shall get my veggies in today! I won't let you down! :D

And I'll keep at it with my goals! "Goals, you shall be reached and exceeded TODAY!"

Ahh, just finished that workout not too long before I posted my results, and for me, nothing is better than listening to the Boss Room Calm  track from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess right after a Boss Dungeon Workout.

I always feel so calm listening to it, like I've overcome some huge challenge, and I get a chance to reflect on how far I've come.
