Chlorofyl Posted June 9, 2015 Report Share Posted June 9, 2015 Yay, it's time for my second 6-week challenge! (I'm one day too late, but still.) As my exercise schedule currently consists of Crossfit, sprinting and running, I figured I belong to the Rangers guild! ^^ As for a race, I think I'm a nymph: I like being alone in the forest, I secretly wish to live in a tree (house) in the woods, I have many plants in and around my room and I have a thing for flowers! Main questMy main quest of the previous challenge was to lose 18 lbs. This is still ongoing, so I'll keep it as a main quest â€“ but honestly, the subgoals for this challenge don't necessarily contribute to this. The thing is, the subgoals from the previous challenge are kind of my habits right now! So I will lose those pounds eventually along the way ^^. SubgoalsStick to the 80/20 rule (unhealthy food/snacks limited to 2x a week) \\ +1 CON, +1 STAMost of the time, I eat pretty healthy (Primal/Paleo-ish) but lately I've been having more unhealthy snacks and drinks than usual. Of course it's completely fine to eat something unhealthy every once in a while - but not too often. Therefore, I want to stick to the 80/20 rule again instead of the 50/50 rule that I tend to follow right now... Go for a 10-30min morning walk 3x a week (preferably in nature) \\ +2 STA, +1 DEX, +1 STRWalking is very healthy for the body AND the mind. I find that I don't do this often enough and I know that it really helps me, physically as well as emotionally (have been getting a lot of stress lately). And I get some fresh air in! Because I'm not sure about the length of the walks yet (and I'm quite busy on some days), I want to aim for something between 10-30 minutes to begin with. I'll see how that goes! As for the days, I think I'll do this on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday (those are the days on which I usually don't exercise). Eat more iodine: 2x fish, 1x kombu/wakame soup, take supplements \\ +2 CON, +1 STAI'm kind of worried that I'm suffering from iodine deficiency, so I want to incorporate idione-rich foods into my eating pattern and see if that helps. Seaweed is healthy anyways. (:Life quest1. Find a summer job \\ +2 CHA, +1 WISSummer vacation is coming and I want to earn some money! Therefore, I'm looking for a summer job. I really want to have this settled as soon as possible. 2. Meditate 1x each day 3x a week (at least 5 min.) \\ +2 WIS, +1 CHAMeditating is something I've wanted to do for a loooong time. I easily get stressed and tend to worry a lot, which is not a good thing. I think that meditating can definitely help me with this and I want to make it a habit! I'll start with guided meditations and use YouTube/apps (like Stop, Breathe & Think and Calm) to help me! I'm ready to get started again! ^^ Quote Level 0 || Ranger Forest Nymph STR 0 || DEX 0 || STA 0 || CON 0 || WIS 0 || CHA 0 First challenge || Second challenge (currently) Weight loss (18 lbs to go): 30%30% Walks 30%30% Link to comment
