Terah becomes a warrior


Terah

Recommended Posts

I've been a druid and an assassin, now it is time to see if being a warrior suits me better.

 

About me: I'm a work at home mom. I've two small boys (4 and 2 years old). I love sewing, reading, watching sf tv shows, dancing and spending time with my friends (not necessarily in that order). I live in the Netherlands. English is my second language, so bare with me ;)

 

I joined the druids to learn about intuitive eating and getting more in touch with myself in general. (second challenge)

I joined the assassins because I love to dance (third challenge). But I didn't like the side quests they had. And assassins are supposed to be fast. I've been accused of many things, but being fast isn't one of them ;)

I would love to be stronger, and I don't hate strength training, so I figured I try to  be a warrior this time around. 

 

This is going to be my 4th challenge:

 

My motivation: To feel strong, confident and in control

 

Main quest: Become a warrior

 

Quest 1: IF

Daily 14 hour fasts. (More hours is better)

Measurement: A = 37-42 days of successful IF, B = 31-36 days of successful IF, C = 24-30 days of successful IF

Reward: A = +2 CON, B = +1.5 CON, C = +0.5 CON

Quest 1B: Meal time

Max 3 meals a day. A meal is anything that fits on one plate, and isn't just fruit or vegetable.

(So fruit and veg are good snacks, but only if hungry. A piece of cake or chocolate is a meal.)

Measurement: A = 37-42 days of successful IF, B = 31-36 days of successful IF, C = 24-30 days of successful IF

Reward: A = +1 CON, B = +0.5 CON, C = +0.5 CON
Quest 2: strength training

I want to be stronger. Muscle will make me look better and I'm hoping more muscle means more energy.

I'm going to do: squats, deadlifts, chest presses and shoulder presses. Optional are Chin ups and rows

Measurement: A = 12+ workouts, B = 9-11 workouts, C = 6-8 workouts

Reward: A = +3 STR +2 STA, B = +2 STR +1 STA, C = +1 STR

Quest 3: Cardio

I love zumba so that will be my main workout. My back up workout is running

Measurement: A = 12+ workouts, B = 10-11 workouts, C = 8-9 workouts

Reward: A = +3 STA +2 CON, B = +2 STA +1 CON, C = +1 CON

Live quest:

I've done two life quests of konmari adventures. The first time it was amazing, I made such progress. The second challenge was different. Hoping to pick up the pace this challenge.

I'm setting my goals not as high though. Hoping that will help me keep to stick to it. Habit is more important than quantity.

Measurement: A = 6+ category's done, B = 4-5 category's done, C = 3 category's done

Reward: A = +2 CHA, B = +1 CHA, C = +0.5 CHA

 

With all of the challenges: I get a free pass when I'm sick and the first two days of shark week (learned I needed that during my last challenge)

 

And I've finally made a spreadsheet to follow my progress! When I've entered some stats I will be able to make some very nice graphs ;)

Preparing for my challenge: 

I bought gravel and construction bags to make filling for my sand bag (Like this). I just had some bags of soda (1kg each), but if I'm really going to lift I need something heavier, so I'm making 8 bags of 5kg. Don't think I'm going to need them all during this challenge, but it gives me something to work forward to.

 

The making of the bags alone gives me a good workout :P

We do love lifting heavy stuff and putting them down around here.  You never know if you're going to need something heavier until you pick it up  :positive:

Found you too!

 

I totally want to make sand bags!!!!!  I'm sticking to mostly body weight and a little kettlebell (so excited) for this challenge but I really want to try the sand bags.  I've been lifting bags of soil around the year and packages of bottled water around the house for practice :)  Can't wait to find out what you think about sand bags as a strength tool!

My phone is also relatively new. Got it a month or two ago, so I am also looking into helpful apps. Our medical aid links to some of the apps and then of course you have to buy the "fitness devices", so I am trying out Fitbit for now, but only the walking tracker. I don't think any of the apps are really set up to handle Banting (LCHF), but I haven't had an opportunity to check yet.

Just tried a new class at the gym: dancehall/hiphop. I loved it!

And direct after that there was a zumba class I didn't want to miss. So two hours of excersise and I feel great! (A bit tired perhaps ;) )

I used to do similar stuff when I was in the Army, 75 min of lifting in the morning, then 1-2 hours of weighted aerobics/spin/yoga in the evening.  I was is great shape and I could eat anything I wanted at that point.

That's fantastic. I would be surprised if you weren't at least a little tired after all that movin' and groovin'.

Awesome! Glad you enjoyed it. I danced with the boys to my Grease cd this weekend. I was down for the count, which was what made me realise strength without endurance isn't going to help me a lot.

I love grease! And yes, you need endurance. It is so much easier to run after my boys after almost two years of zumba. And they get faster every year, so I need to keep training ;)
