Ciara Posted November 5, 2014 Report Share Posted November 5, 2014 My first challenge as an Assassin! I feel decidedly un-Assassiny...haven't been keeping up with parkour, don't do bodyweight exercises anymore...Well that's gonna change this challenge! Here we go! Main Quest: If at first you don't succeed, step it up a notch!Continue trying to lose weight, fit into single digit clothes. At the end of my last challenge, I had actually put on a few pounds (I forgot to document my exact weight so I don't know how many it was). I've put on a few more pounds since the end of the challenge, and I'm still squeezing into my pants. I'm going to ramp up my workout and diet habits to hopefully get back under 170 (egad, I've never been here in my life!) and eventually (not this challenge but someday) back into the 140s.Quest 1: Pain is weakness leaving the body. (STR: 3 STA: 3 DEX: 1) Guys, working out is hard. That's why I'm going to step it up from 4 to 6 days a week. I still see my trainer 2x/week, and now I'm putting it upon myself to go to workout 4 additional times. Now, last challenge, that meant do anything- from riding my bike for 30 minutes to shopping for 2 hours. It was all the same to me, because I did something. I know now I can do something, and I want to make that something count towards my goal of losing weight and getting more upper body strength. I also want to incorporate bodyweight workouts back into my life, so here's what I've come up with: Strength workouts 2x/week (including bodyweight)Cardio 3x/weekParkour (strength and cardio) 1x/week A: Follow this plan for 6 days a week B: 5 days a week C: 4 days or fewer a week Side note: I will get that dexterity point only if I go to at least 4 parkour classes out of 6. If I go 3 or under, that point is gone. Quest 2: I want to eat EVERYTHING! (CON: 3) I've been like No-face the past several...years. I just eat when I'm hungry and sometimes when I'm not and I don't stop when I'm full. I want to take control of my diet. I am going to create and post meal plans every Sunday night for the week, and stick to them. I will report everything I ate that day on here and in a handy dandy spreadsheet. If I deviate from the plan, I'll let you know. If I add extra healthy foods to a day or switch meals around, it's still a pass. If I add more than one extra junk per day (coffee, takeout, candy) that day is a fail. More than 2 fails in a week results in a failed week. A: Follow meal plan for 6 weeks B: Follow meal plan for 5 weeks C: Follow meal plan for 4 or fewer weeks Quest 3: In peace, vigilance. (WIS: 3) I have been having some problems regulating my emotions lately..It's been a whirlpool of all sorts of moods and I want to learn some coping mechanisms for when I am in crisis. I am going to journal my mood and sleep every day for the next six weeks so my therapist and I can understand me better. A: Journal 7 days a week B: 6 days a week C: 5 or fewer days a week I also want to start meditating every day for at least 2 minutes. Just need to get more in the habit. No grade for that. Life Quest: Hoard my treasure (CHA: 2)This is the same as last challenge. This time I'm going to give myself points for succeeding. I have a food budget of $60/ week. I want to stick to that budget as best as I can. Things other than food (like the $75 a month I pay for the train pass) are not part of this budget. As a college student, I just eat out wayy too much so this budget is my attempt at reining myself in. Pass: $60 or under per weekFail $61 or over per week What would a challenge be without rewards? Here's what I get if I succeed (these rewards are stacking): A: Membership to a spa. There's a spa in the town I'm moving to. If I get an A, I will buy myself a membership and get a massage! B: New tupperware. I have 3 different sized plastic food containers. I had to borrow more from my mom so I can do adequate meal prep. This reward is dependent on if I get a dorm with a kitchen in the spring (if I don't I'll come up with something else) but I will buy myself some more tupperware so I can continue to succeed in meal prep even away from home.C: Fuzzy socks! My feet get so cold at night. I need moar socks! Measurements and photos: Coming Sunday night! Chest: 36.5Waist: 31Belly: 43Hips: 38.5Thigh: R: 26 L: 27Arm: R: L: 13 Edited because it was way too long. I cut a few things out but I'll probably still do them on my own time.Edited again because I decided I'll do cardio 3x a week for now since I hate it so very very much. 3 Quote Level 2 Human Assassin STR 4| DEX 0| STA 5| CON 4| WIS 4| CHA 1My battlelogChallenge: 1, 2, 3, 4, Current Link to comment
