Current Quest: (PART ONE)

1/5 - 1/23 - Come Back from the Dead

MAIN QUEST: 
Back to Basics  :: Don't Suck

 

I've been AWOL for about 3 months... Sigh. I'm lucky that my reason for being AWOL is that I got VERY involved in the play I was doing, made a bunch of new friends, and subsequently did a lot of this:

Time to recommit and get ready to rock!

 

 

Ultimate Quest: Survive the Zombie Apocalypse
NECESSARY SKILLS: I will be focusing on...

STR: Fend off zombies with brawn 
STA: Outrun hordes for long distances 

DEX: Be agile and quick enough to cover rugged, varied terrain effortlessly 
CON: Have the supplies and means to bunker down and equip myself properly
WIS: Be wicked smaht. Because zombies are dumb.
CHA: Charm the pants off of handsome survivors. Steal their shit.

 

 

CHALLENGE PT ONE GOALS (First 3 Weeks)

At the midpoint of this challenge, I will assess, assign points, and create a new set of challenges! (5 points possible for each 1/2 challenge)

 

1: Money, Money, Money

I am starting a new teaching job! Long-term subbing is exciting, but it means 21 days of petty pay before the big bucks kick in. I need to be frugal for the next month!

- NO FAST FOOD, Not even coffee!

- Pay all bills on time

-  Stick with the alternative 52-week challenge (deposit anywhere from $1-52 per week, each number can only be used once. This allows greater flexibility in case of car repairs or other unexpected expenses!)

2: Get Apocalypse Ready (+3 STA)

- Make my new gym membership worth it! Go at least 2x a week

- Do the first three weeks of Couch-to-5k!

Welcome back!

 

 

What's the plan for working out at the gym?

 

 

I switch it up - free weights, weight machines, treadmill, elliptical... I plan on doing the Couch 2 5K plan on the treadmill, so most of my other gym time will be on strength training!

BUFFY GIFS. :D

 

Zombies!

 

Interesting set up with making new challenges as you go. I'll have to keep an eye on this thread. Good luck!

 

Buffy and Zombies... two of my favorite things :)

 

I find that 6 weeks is too long for my attention span / willpower. Breaking into two 3-week chunks was a suggestion from someone when I was faltering the last time, and I like it! At the end of the 3 weeks, I'll re-assess and determine what I should focus on for the 2nd half of the challenge.

Yay Buffy! I'd be following just for the gifs but your goals look great too. I tried the 52 week savings challenge but I couldn't manage it because it was so strict but I love your idea of being able to choose any number once, this gives the challenge greater flexibility so I might steal that in future if you don't mind. Good luck with your challenge!

Woohoo! I love gifs, and tend to choose a different theme for each challenge. 

I stole the flex52 plan from some random person online. I have a very murky financial future (I'm starting a long term teaching job that ends in late March, and then... ?.... So the ability to say, "This is my $2 week" if I'm running low on funds is super helpful.

Whoo hoo! I love the flex52 plan—I always liked the idea of that savings plan, but setting aside the majority of the savings for December always seemed like setting up to fail! I think your way works much better. Good luck on day one!

Yay, so much love!

 

Today I started my long-term sub position (teaching 8th Grade English), and I'm so psyched! It went very well, and I'm super pumped:)

 

Bonus? I had over 5k in steps by the time I left school! Woohoo!

If you love zombies and are doing a C25K program... have you seen Zombies, Run! ?  They have a 5K training app I have used and liked... and will likely use again once I attempt to start running again!  Has a nice story, and can still use your music playlist between story bits.

Yep, I love Zombies, Run! I wanted to stick to the training regime of the C25K, but I plan on going back to ZR once I get better endurance!

 

Right now, my lungs are pretty crappy. I've had a cough for nearly three weeks, and working out has been tough. BUT, I'm excited to return to it.
