Battle Log. Here it is!

I started this in 2012, inspired by Nerd Fitness. This is what I do instead of challenges now, as it's more long-term. i was doing both, but it was too much paperwork.

I'll explain as I earn points in each of the nine areas.

I finally got the review up on amazon.com - or at least I've submitted it. It's apparently "being processed" right now, whatever that means. Sorry it took me so long!

 

Very kind of you! Just finished the third short story of a compilation. They're parallel to the novel. Now for a cover and editing. When it's up, I'll send you a gift copy.

What!? My vague indications of future explanations aren't self-explanatory? Maybe I'll have to actually write them then.

Scouty, scouty, scouty...

Say that five times fast and it becomes nonsense. I took my boys camping though. that's scouty!

Awesome, thank you!

I'm already looking forward to all the future story goodness! :)

My shiny new "battle" log - probably more of a plodding-along log, but hey, it's mine!

LEVEL UP!

 

Nine Level 31

 

 

What pushed me over was three points for finishing a 1/2 ironman triathlon as part of my training. Half ironman. So that would be aluminum man if we're going by number of nuclear protons, or silicon man if calculated with the atomic mass of iron's most common isotope (That sentence earns me a Nerd Fitness bonus point.)

 

You can see the three points by the VIII, under the bike wheel. When I finish the ironman next month, I get six.

 

I get to level up every nine points. Here's where some of the other points came from:

 

I - cross symbol. 12 weeks of mediation five times weekly (now working on 13)

I - book symbol. Studying religious and spiritual topics four times weekly for 6 weeks

II - blue heart. Being home for dinner with my family four times a week for 12 weeks

II - half-blue heart. Making breakfast for my kids four times weekly for 7 weeks.

VI - yellow parchment. I finished the cover for a collection of short stories. I should finish editing the stories this week, then I'll publish the ebook.

 

Woohoo!

Thanks! 

And I wonder, do you say "aluminium" like the Brits? Or leave out the second "i" like silly Yankees?

 

The German word has the second "i", I don't know about the Canadian version, though.

I was just trying to blend in. *cough*

LEVEL UP to 32!

 

Here's how I scored some of the nine points THIS time. No new chart, but you can refer to one above if you want.

 

II     Half-blue heart for morning devotional time with my kids four days weekly for six weeks.

V    One for taking extra time to build some professional relationships. The time-consuming hard stuff no one wants to do.

VI   Quill for consistent writing for seven weeks.

VI   Scroll for publishing the collection of short stories that parallel my novel (here if you're interested)

VII  Fist for three levels of strength training passed. The last was completing 20 sit-ups, 40 bodyweight squats, 20 push-ups, and 10 pull-ups in under 1:55. That made me feel tough!

IX   Book with the quill on it for selling the 50th copy of my novel. Only 999,950 to go for bestseller status!

 

 

And as a bonus, I made my longest bike ride ever yesterday: 112 miles, including a 2000 foot climb over ten miles. That's the distance I have to do for the Ironman in three weeks. Then run a marathon. Given that the Ironman only has rolling hills and is 2000 feet in elevation lower and I plan to ride it more slowly, I'm excited to see all the training putting me right where I need to be!

Thanks to the Brigade for the support!

Interesting place to put a battle log... Welcome to the scouts :)

 

 

Thanks!

 

That exchange totally cracked my shit up.  I laughed quite hard out loud.  Thanks for making my afternoon!  Congrats on the level-up, love the tracking system.  I am reading one of the books you PM'd me about awhile back.  Kind of provocative, but pretty interesting for sure.  It is definitely helping with my motivation for coming back to NF, so thanks for that too!
