TheMarvelPrincess Posted April 13, 2015 Report Share Posted April 13, 2015 Hey there, Rebels! I'm heading into my third challenge, and I'm hoping to push myself even harder. I only have 3 weeks left in this semester, but I'll probably stay on campus for an extra 6 weeks to take a "Maymester" and work. Anyways, life will for sure get a bit easier, so I want to start my summer break off strong by finishing this challenge! I'm breaking this challenge into "Fitness" and "Life" goals, although there's a bit of crossover. Thanks for following me on this journey! Current Weight/Measurements:Weight - 120lbsBust - 34"Waist - 30 1/2"Hips - 37"Thighs - 21 1/2â€œ Fitness Goals GOAL 1: Run like Wonder Woman. (Run, or Use Elliptical or Treadmill 3 days a week)(Fun fact - my English professor is Lynda Carter's first cousin. Unfortunately, I still don't have an autograph.) Details: I am not a big runner. It's just not something I've ever done, and I've been okay because I've found other ways to stay fit. However, I need to up my endurance. I am only choosing to do 3 days a week because I get a lot of cardio from dance (especially tap) and I donâ€™t want to set too high a goal. Possible Points: +3 StaminaCurrent Progress: 2/20 Days GOAL 2: Do a Handstand (Take 2!)Details: This was my goal in my last quest, but it didnâ€™t happen. I have managed to stay in a wall handstand for 60 seconds, but I canâ€™t do it consistently. I also canâ€™t get up on my own away from the wall. So, Iâ€™m going to try it again! Possible Points: +2 DexterityCurrent Progress: Can hold a wall handstand for 60 seconds. Can get into a handstand away from the wall. GOAL 3: Hulk up! (Regular Weight-liftingDetails:I am trying to get more into regular weight-lifting, beyond what I do in my tiny apartment. Iâ€™ve been trying to use the free-weights at the gym, but I need the added motivation of making it part of my challenge. I'm also partial to bodyweight stuff, so I will probably rotate between that and free-weights. Iâ€™m shooting for a bare minimum of 4 days a week - but hopefully I'll make more than that. Possible Points: +2 StrengthCurrent Progress: 2/24 Days Life Goals GOAL 1: Get more sleep.Details: I used to have a very steady sleep schedule, and unlike most college students, I'm not into partying and I rarely stay up late of my own accord. (#nerd) But recently, especially this past semester, I've been getting an average of 4-6 hours of sleep. I didn't notice it until I got a FitBit and started tracking my sleep, but MAN is that unhealthy. So I'm going to work on getting more sleep. Possible points: +2 ConstitutionCurrent Progress: 4/42 Nights of at least 7 1/2 hours of sleep. GOAL 2: Pass the Psychology CLEP Test (And not Britta it)Details: I need to knock some of these GenEds out of the way so I won't have so much going on. First up: Psychology! I'm basically gonna be a therapist, guys.Possible points: +3 WisdomCurrent Progress: Studied first 4 chapters of Textbook GOAL 3: "I...am not left-handed." (Regular Fencing!)Details: So I've done a little fencing in the way of workshops (and a lot of stage combat, since I'm an actor), but I never had the opportunity to do it regularly. Thankfully, I now have access to a fencing school that has adult classes DURING times I can take them! So I start on the 18th with a weekend intensive, and I'll be doing it regularly after that. I am really excited about it, since it's something I always wanted to do but never had the time. Also, this school teaches historical fencing, which I'm totally into. I'm actually making this a "Charisma" challenge, because it just makes me incredibly happy, and what's more charismatic than a 5'4" chick with a sword? Absolutely nothing!Possible points: +3 CharismaCurrent Progress: 4 Quote Level 3: Wood Elf, Assassin| STR: 5 | DEX: 6 | STA: 3 | CON: 7 | WIS: 2 | CHA: 3 | â€œWe love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be.â€ - Grant Morrison League of Extraordinary Nerds Current Challenge Progress: 3%3% Link to comment
