TheGreyJedi-Ranger Posted July 20, 2015 Report Share Posted July 20, 2015 A lot of the training that Luke had in the swamps of Dagobah was physical and mental training. That's what I'm going to be doing this challenge- starting to make healthy a habit in order to prepare to go to a Jedi Training Academy! So I'm a college student. I had dining hall access, I never learned to really control food intake on my own (though I'm learning), and I didn't work out much. Fast forward from beginning of college to almost three years later and I'm about 30 lbs heavier and really not in shape. I want to get back to playing Quidditch as a chaser. The past month or so I've been eating a lot better and have finally really gotten the mindset. I've lost 7lbs or so in that time as well. I've been on here since I started school but was never really committed. Well, now I am! This is my first challenge and I'm ready. I'm really not in great shape, so I'm going to start slowly and work my way into the gym. My biggest motivation is that I really do want to be able to get back on the Quidditch team. But I also want to be the best me I can be! My body is capable of so much more than I've been doing and I'm ready to explore that. For starters I'm just going to try to get into the habit of working out and eating right so I'm not destroying myself before I start. Main Goal- Maybe not Princess Leia, but still looking good. A Jedi must look presentable in their uniform. Who would trust a Jedi that would look like a Force Flip would leave them flat on the ground? I have to look the part to be a Jedi and that means- Back in size 8 jeans/shorts I don't expect to be tiny ever. I'm not built that way. But being back in an 8 like I was in high school (a women's 8 though- not necessarily a juniors 8) would be absolutely fantastic. Sub Goal 1- Preparation for Apprenticeship No Jedi worth their salt would take on a Padawan without at least a base level of fitness. I need to make sure I'm ready for more focused training later on and eventually that I might be given to a more gifted Jedi as a Padawan learner. So to do that I need to- Work out at least 5 times/week I work out fairly regularly, and I like both running and strength training. So I'll do some workouts with a run and some without thanks to the hills. (I might need to adjust this for the week I'm at the beach with my family- I feel like spending the day in the ocean or in the pool counts as a workout as long as I'm moving and also there for more than an hour, but if you've got any ideas, let me know. I also still plan on running since I'll have access to a great environment for running.) Still have STA:1, STR: .5, DEX:1 to allocate 5+x/week = A STA+3 DEX+2 STR+14x/week= B STA+2.5 DEX+1.5 STR+.753x/week = C STA+2 DEX+1 STR+0.52x/week= D STA+1 DEX +.5 STR+.250-1x/week = F- No points Week 1 - A - 5 workoutsWeek 2 - A - 5 workoutsWeek 3 - N/A- illness, not counting againstWeek 4 - A- 5 workoutsWeek 5 - A- 5 workoutsWeek 6 - A- 5 workouts Sub Goal 2- Avoid exposure to the Dark Side Unhealthy food and restaurants are the domain of the Dark Side! I must avoid such temptations and prepare my own food as much as possible. Eat out once a week or less While I've been fairly good about it this summer, I tend to eat out more during the semester. We shall see how I do over the course of the semester! I'm also going to the beach with my family for a week, as mentioned above, so we might be eating out a bit more, but I will endeavor for those not to be ridiculously unhealthy meals. I don't think I'm going to take tallys away unless I decide to eat out by myself without it being a family meal. We are going to cook most of our meals anyway so between that and the fact that I'll be getting workouts and low impact workouts in the ocean and pool (also lots of walking around) means that this one week won't throw me off entirely. And the catering at work is usually healthy enough that I won't count that either unless I overeat or don't add some sort of fruits and veggies to the meal. The week I'm at home, I know my BF will want to take me out to eat once locally and we are also planning on spending a day in a theme park. The theme park day we're going to bring one meal and eat at the park for the other. I won't count certain "emergency" eating out against me, but I will try to make those sorts of events both unusual and as healthy as possible! Still have CON: 1.5 and WIS: 1 0-1x/week = A CON+3 WIS+22-3x/week = B CON+2 WIS+14-5x/week = C CON+1 WIS+.55+x/week = F No points Week 1 - A- 1x eating outWeek 2 - A- 1x eating outWeek 3 - A- 1x eating outWeek 4 - A- 1x eating outWeek 5 - A- 1x eating outWeek 6 - A- 1x eating out Life Goal- Commit to finishing things I've started If I'm going to be a Jedi, I have to be able to finish things I've started and show commitment. Finish one rewrite of my book I'm going to finish my first rewrite of my novel. I did personal edits, but a bunch of the edits are large additions. I want to finish those during these 6 weeks. Resolve all comments+ A WIS+3Resolve 75% = B WIS+2.5Resolve 50% = C WIS+2Resolve 25% = D WIS+1Resolve less than 25% = F No points Finished- 7-30-15Final score- A +3 WIS So that's me and my goals. And my motivation. I'm so excited to work with you guys! May the Force Be with You! EDIT: to adjust for the fact that I need to be running as part of my strength training day EDIT #2: Take into account the week at the beach with my family Mini QuestsQuest 1- Complete! +1 WISQuest 2- Complete! +1 CHAQuest 5- Complete! +1 STA 4 Quote Grey Jedi Ranger Jedi Becomes A Hero Vol IV: Jedi Climbs the Mountain Jedi Battle Log “Keep Calm, Carry On, and Don't Freeze Up!” - Oboro Shirakumo (Loud Cloud), My Hero Academia Vigilantes Challenges: #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8, #9, #10, #11, #12. #13, #14, #15, #16, #17, #18, #19, #20, #21, #22, #23, #24, #25, #26, #27, #28, #29, #30, #31, #32, #33, #34, #35, #36, #37, #38, #39, #40, #41, #42, #43, #44, #45, #46, #47, #48, #49, #50, #51, #52, #53, #54, #55, #56, #57 Link to comment
