[Sienna] The Map


Recommended Posts

Good day, fellow rebels! I salute you!

Welcome to my first challenge: Finding the Map!

Every pirate's dream is to find the treasure... but the treasure cannot be found without a map first. You need a plan!
And so, this is mine:

Main Quest:

 

Drop the extra weight I possess

(Around 20 lbs)

 

 

Objectives:

 

1) Do the Beginner Body Weight Workout at least 3 times per week

(So I can gain strength for future pole dancing incursions)

 

2) Include in one of your meals of the day a reasonable portion of vegetables

(at least a quarter of the plate)

 

3) Drop the soda

(Definitely)

And so, there you have it! My first steps towards the hunt for the booty!

 

But remember one important thing:

Hello!

 

I’m Hazard, an ambassador for the Assassin Guild.  I see you've listed yourself as an Assassin in your signature.  We’d love to help you reach your goals!

 

If you ever have any questions or need help with anything, I'll happily assist you.  An easy way to get my attention is to use the quote button at the bottom right corner of any of my posts.  I have the forum setting turned on to alert me when somebody quotes me using that button, so it's a quick easy way to let me know you're talking to me. :)  You can also get in touch with me by posting on my own challenge topic or by using the forum private messenger system (the envelope button at the very top of the screen).

 

Here is a link to more information about the Assassin guild.

And here is a link to the Assassin phonebook with a list of various exercises/skills that guild members are working on for this challenge, as well as links to their challenge topics.

 

There are numerous other people in the Assassin’s guild who you can also get help from.  I recommend stopping by the Assassin's Den – a general chat thread in the guild forum – and introducing yourself.  You can always ask questions there too.

 

In any case, I’ll stop by from time to time to check in with you and offer support.  Good luck!

Aww, thank you Chris!

Sure thing! I've had my heart set on the assassins since the very moment I read about them. I've never been able to hula hoop but I'll be glad to give it a try in the company of all the ninjas and pirates you've got! ;)

Best of Luck, especially on giving up soda. I keep trying and can never seem to kick the habit (although I've settled for diet soda only which helps), I found that flavored sparkling waters helped a lot though so I offer that advice.

 

Can't wait to see you hit your goals!!

Thank you!!

 

Surprisingly, giving up soda hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be. I just get bored of having to drink only water (I'll try sparkling water instead - thanks for the tip!)

 

Best of luck to you too!

Yeap - I do tire of just water sometimes.  A little lemon or lime juice helps.  And then there is always herbal teas.

 

How are you doing on veggies and body weight workouts??

Great, thank you!

I've been doing pretty well with my goals for now, although I had to miss one veggie day yesterday since I was out. But on a positive note, I've discovered that lettuce spinach salads are heaven-like!

I'm also getting better with the bodyweight workout. Lunges were killing me at first but I've gotten more used to them. So yep.

Yay! Spinach is soooooo good. :) 

 

And I'm so glad you're already seeing progress with your body weight workout. You rock!

Welcome to your first challenge!  I see you are starting off great :)

 

I had a eat more veggies goal in my first challenge a year ago.  I am happy to report that it is nice finding new ways to eat veggies.  Good luck with the no Soda goal.  I am doing all water nowadays.  it took me a good couple of weeks to get rid of soda completely.  Plus I had terrible withdraws.  It was my only source of caffeine since I never was a tea or coffee drinker.

 

If you need any question or need some help this challenge, feel free to stop over at the Adventure's Tavern.  Lots of Adventures have similar goals.  We like to try to help ;)

YEA!!  Take lunges slowly and concentrate on good form.  They pay huge dividends in terms of strong legs - a little goes a long ways.

 

Join our Veggie Alphabet Challenge!!!  (http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/46407-ongoing-vegetable-alphabet-challenge-pve/)  I am not good with vegetables - so this is one way to get me to eat more of them.

Ah, the veggies! My go to solution is the organic spring mix in the tub from Costco. Great buy and a very versatile base for other veggies. A big salad every day for lunch or dinner topped with whatever sliced or diced veggies you have on hand, a sprinkle of nuts or pepitas and a nice vinaigrette. Throw on a protein source as needed, or a little cheese if it's in your diet plan...Mmmm. Never have to have exactly the same thing twice, unless you want to.
