Redeaglespirit - Means Business


RES

Recommended Posts

I have been here 8 months, and realized a few things about myself in that time...

I used to use food as a 'substitute' for things missing in my life, now I use exercise...I am okay with this change...not so much with the things missing. I miss these things a lot!

I do not do well without a plan

I do not do well with others in my space for extended lengths of time!

I really like the way I feel when I don't eat junk! Sugar has made it's way back into my life so I need to make a conscious effort to eliminate it again (+2 CON, -.5 each time I have sugar, over 2 'cheat' days this challenge)

 

 

As much as I like doing 5k's, my finances are not going to allow for this until certain people leave my space...that does not mean I can't train like I have one (which I will eventually!)

I did perfect on this one last challenge...let's keep it up! :)

A – Elliptical, 18 workouts (3x week - 6 weeks) (+2 STA)
B – Skipped 1-3 (+1.5 STA)
C – Skipped 4-6 (+1 STA)
D – Skipped 7-9 (+.5 STA)
F – Skipped more than 9

 

I really want to start 'toning up' areas, my elbow is still bugging me but I do not think it's tendinitis anymore. Contingent on how it feels I am going to start doing this workout (I do better when I have something to follow along with) twice a week.

This was the area I did not do as well with last challenge

A – All 12 workouts (+2 STR, +2 DEX)
B – Skipped 1-2 workouts (+2 STR, +1 DEX)
C – Skipped 3-4 workouts (+1 STR, +1 DEX)
D – Skipped 5-6 workouts (+.5 STR, +.5 DEX)
F – Skipped more than 6 workouts.

Homework, 30 minutes a day, +2 WIS, to be adjusted accordingly if I don't do it. I have 2 classes left...12 weeks, I can do this!

 

I want to start writing again...I used to be able to do a decent job at it and once upon a time had a small following on my blog...I want to contribute to the RPG story at least twice this challenge, I am not going to grade this though, this time...if I pull it off maybe next challenge LOL

 

The starting stats...

Measurement   -  9/07/14
Weight             -  173
Chest               -  40
Waist               -  35.5

Sometimes, you can run a 5K for free. My brother-in-law ran with us at the 5K I did. He didn't register or anything, but he still got to do it. Granted he didn't get a bib or a shirt or anything, but just throwing it out there in case you really wanted to do one before your finances shaped up. 

 

Also, I'm tagging along again. :)

RedCedar uses the pronouns they/them/theirs. What pronouns do you prefer? 

Here is a fun game to help learn/practice pronouns that might be new to you: http://minus18.org.au/pronouns-app/

It's more about doing it for a good cause....I could have done one this weekend but I refuse to have anything to do with Salvation Army

No I can't...I was looking at my pictures from the beginning the other day, didn't realize how much had really changed!

 

Go get 'em

:) Will do, good to see you again!

 

:ph34r:

Okay. Silly question time. You have a really long username. What's an acceptable nickname? (Excuse the short sentences. My brain is still jetlagged.)

Update

Already caved to the sugar monster once this challenge...and it's only the first week...cause, well...red velvet cake, which did not taste as great as I wanted it too...

My arm is still not acting right so have not been able to do the bodyweight part of my challenge, which is irritating, and I whacked my head something horrible yesterday, stepped up into the walk-in cooler at work while putting away the truck and slammed the top of it into the top of the doorway (which is very low, I'm not THAT tall) which did not do my neck any favors, and I keep losing feeling in my arms, more often than normal....

I have done my elliptical workout, and worked on homework, and worked on getting ready for the CDM course, and even written in character for the RPG Fanatics...

 

and I haven't killed or fired anyone this week! (trust me that's a big one...)

 

These yummy treats were made (not by me) Chocolate Brownie Bites

 

I need sleep...which seems to be evading me once I get where I can do it...

More STORY! :P

I don't understand the red velvet cake craze. I looked it up and it's just the same as regular cake I thought.  I'm a total doofus when it comes to red velvet stuff. I keep getting duped. I go, "Oh look, red velvet cake/muffin/cupcake/poptart/whatever" and then I'll try it and go, "...Why?"
