KrystalWolf Posted June 1, 2015 Report Share Posted June 1, 2015 Hiya! My name's Krystal and Iâ€™m super-excited to be able to participate in this challenge, my first one since discovering the NF community. Iâ€™m new to the RPG side of things, but it sure looks like fun. Iâ€™m looking to lose some weight (5kg down so far, 12kg or so to go) and improve my health and fitness levels. I love reading books and generally lead a fairly sedentary life. If I was in a fantasy book, Iâ€™d probably be cast as a scribe or a librarian, and while thatâ€™s pretty cool, my heartâ€™s yearning for something with a bit moreâ€¦.bounceâ€¦ in it I have my challenge all written up (Itâ€™s also pinned to the noticeboard in my study for extra reminding), so here goes: Main Quest:To reach the weight of 73kg or less by the end of 2015. I will do this by increasing my general fitness, monitoring my caloric intake and making healthier food choices, and getting better quality sleep. SMART Quests: 1. Exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes, 4 x a week. I have been exercising 2-4 times a week, so this should be totally achievable. I'll be doing a weekly PT session, and then a combo of BBWW and interval cardio for the remaining three sessions. *EDIT- My fourth exercise session of the week may be any activity as long as I'm up and moving. Dancing, a steady walk, rollerskating, it all counts if I did it longer than 30 minutes 2. Track every calorie I consume, with a daily target of 1300. I can do thisâ€¦â€¦I need to be mindful of cookies, sushi-binges and boredom eating. 3. Listen to my hypnosis tracks a minimum of 3 x a week. These improve my quality of sleep substantially, and there is no reason not to listen to them. None. Nada. Zip. Life Quest: 1. Spend a minimum of 10 minutes, 3 x a week, in the greenhouse. This is my sacred space. Itâ€™s important for me mentally to have time in here. Itâ€™s the place I de-funk, de-stress, and de-tox my mind. It needs to be a regular occurrence. Motivations:My motivations are all the different activities that Iâ€™d love to try, without having to worry that my weight and lack of fitness will hold me back from giving it a red hot go. I want to get the most I can out of these activities when I attempt them, as due to my location and budget, these are special occasions for me. So, Iâ€™m using them as motivations â€“ things I can attempt once I make some headway with my health/fitness goals: Rockclimbing, Circus Camp, Skydiving, and Swordfighting are on the list, as are Trampolining, a Burlesque make-over/photoshoot, and getting back into Fresh Meat Roller Derby training. Thankyou all and best of luck to all the new Recruits! 1 Quote Level 2 | Adventurer | Lycan Little by little, a little becomes a lot. How the story begins..
