BRIEFING


Hey everybody, I'm back! The infamous wedding took up too much of my time towards the end of my last challenge, and the start of the previous challenge here. By the time I started to get back into it the challenge was well underway and I opted not to jump in, though I know I should have. Anyway, for those wondering how I did with the "look awesome in a kilt for the wedding"..well...


 


med_gallery_16751_720_25794.jpg


 


There it is... I did awesome!


 


Of course since then I haven't done as awesome, so I totally get to play catch up again. Yay!


 


MAIN CHALLENGE


In April I'm going out to Celebration in Anaheim, California. Having recently spent 4 days at New York Comic Con and feeling completely wasted I want to get myself in better shape to be able to handle Celebration, especially since I'm hoping to be in costume there, and I wasn't at NYCC. So the plan is to get into shape where I won't be a mess of pain after Celebration.


 


MOTIVATION


The motivation is to feel awesome, and to get into the best shape I've ever been. Be able to deal with Celebration and get in shape to be a good role model for any future offspring that might come about from the marriage.


 


SUB-QUESTS


 


Quest 1 - I Am Groot: No Grains/Dairy [CON:3]


I've fallen off the wagon since I was last here, and I need to get back on it. I'm going to get back to eating normally again.


 


A: No Grains/Dairy all Six Weeks


B: No Grains/Dairy for Five Weeks


C: No Grains/Dairy for Four Weeks


D: No Grains/Dairy for Three Weeks


D:  No Grains/Dairy > Three Weeks


 


 


Quest 2 - I'm Star-Lord, Man.: Strength Exercise 2-3 times per week [STR:3|STA:2]


Working towards getting back on the bandwagon again, need to re-start the exercise habit by trying to do something 2-3 times per week.


 


A: 2-3x Per Week For All Six Weeks 


B: 2-3x Per Week For Five Weeks


C: 2-3x Per Week for Four  Weeks


D: 2-3x Per Week for Three Weeks


F: 2-3x Per Week for > Three Weeks


 


Quest 3 - I Have Part of a Plan: Walk at least 15 Minutes 2-3 times per week [STA:3|CON: 2]


Since conventions involve a lot of moving about and being on your feet for extended periods I figured I'd focus on something that'll increase my ability to be on my feet.


 


A: 2-3x Per Week For All Six Weeks 


B: 2-3x Per Week For Five Weeks


C: 2-3x Per Week for Four  Weeks


D: 2-3x Per Week for Three Weeks


F: 2-3x Per Week for > Three Weeks


 


SIDE QUEST


 


Side Quest 1 - There's another name you might know me by: Work towards becoming OM of MMCC [WIS:2]


In order to be an Official Member of the Mandalorian Mercs Costuming Club one needs to have a costume of Mandalorian Armor that meets their minimum requirements. I've been working on a costume for some time, and since I want to be in kit for Celebration this is something to focus on.


 


A: Work on Kit 3x Per Week for Six Weeks


B: Work on Kit 3x Per Week for Five Weeks


C: Work on Kit 3x Per Week for Four Weeks


D: Work on Kit 3x Per Week for Three Weeks

So I almost neglected to do any exercise yesterday, and I had planned on doing so.. I did manage to sneak something it...not too much... Mostly just failures to keep myself held up on a pull up bar...heh. Maybe I'll sneak in something more proper today. 

 

I know I'm no Star-Lord yet, but that's okay... that doesn't mean I can't pretend to be Chris Pratt characters...

WEEKLY UPDATE

 

Alright, not off to the best start here overall...But I think I'm managing.

 

Food - Resounding success here, had a lot of random temptation mostly from laziness and habit, but managed to keep myself dairy/grain free. Even researched some recipes for a Paleo Pumpkin Cheesecake that I'm going to try to make for Thanksgiving, because I figure...why cheat when I don't have to.

 

Strength Exercise - I'm not sure if I want to consider this a pass or a fail for this week or not. I did attempt to do pull-ups and failed one day, but that did at least do something...I jumped up and tried to hold myself up, didn't work, but the effort still works out my arms, or at least feels like it does. I only did that one day...I also attempted to do push-ups on another day and...well, that failed as well.. apparently I've let myself fall far enough that I can't even manage one, so I'll have to work on getting back to that point. That at least brings my to 2x of strength training attempts. The debate is if that should count or not...

 

Walking -  This one's tough, I've done plenty of walking over the week, not straight exercise walking but I was at a small convention, though I mostly ran the Mandalorian Mercs table rather than meandered around the convention, but I've walked plenty around stores and such hunting down items for the residence and of course Star Wars christmas stuff. So I've probably reached the required minimum even if it wasn't straight exercising walking. But then I only required that I walk, I'll try to focus more on exercise walking going forward, although the cold might make be hesitant. bleh.

 

Mandalorian -  Yeah, I didn't do this one at all :grumble: I did a bunch of work on the day (Sunday) before the challenge officially started, but nothing since. I'll admit I got a bit into Halo: The Master Chief Collection and started playing The Old Republic again, and of course the Convention over the weekend. Need to re-focus and start working on this thing.

 

Mini-Quest -  This one's interesting. I've been working on being a bit more...outgoing at the conventions when running the tables. I'm primarily an introvert, and I'm not good with...initiating contact with strangers. But if I really want to help with the Mercs then that's something I need to get past. This con provided a lot of it, as I was the first one there, and it was outside of my territory (The con was in PA instead of NJ), though there were some of the NJ folk around, and it's a con I've been regularly attending for years. It was the first time I tried to run a table outside of NJ, and I definitely forced myself to initiate conversation with a lot of people out there.

 

MEASUREMENTS

Sorry, didn't get most of my measurements this time around...not really any valid excuse beyond laziness...which isn't really a valid excuse, just an excuse so it only meets half the criteria. But I did weigh myself, so I can get that info out! As always the number will be color coded based upon if it's up/same/down from last week...and I think I'll start something new this challenge and include the difference.

We'll be out there for a bit longer than the Convention, since it's our late honeymoon. Let me know if you'll be in the area and we can plan a meet up!

Hey everybody! 

 

I'm still alive....

 

I'm still here....sort of.

 

I've been doing a horrid job of getting back in the swing of things, the past few weeks have been a bit of an issue. But hopefully I'll get it rectified going forward. We'll find out!

Still alive, after having issues with this challenge I discovered an app called Simplifit that I'm giving a shot, and follow it's plan...which isn't the same as what I set for the challenges here, necessarily. So final few weeks are based upon how I'm doing with that....I think I'll probably pull out a C for the Diet an Exercise, at least.
