HerrBenedikt - Chapter 1 - Get up!

Recommended Posts


Hey I am Benedikt 22 years old, I am a lazy, now unemployed System Administrator, and I am about 102kg (about 225 lbs). I really want to level up my life. Change things and get happier and maybe find a girl. I don't know I am really lonley I think.


Main Quest: 

I want to get down to 80kg by the end of the year.


Quest 1:

Walk for 30+ minutes everyday. I have a nice forest next to my place, I want to explore it.

Measurement: A = 30+ min for 30 days, B = 30min, 25 days, C = 30min, 20 days

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


Quest 2:

Drink no soda or botteld iced tea for the whole challenge. I drink about 3l of soda and iced tea a day.  I will swap out soda and iced tea for water and cold self brewed tea.

Measurement: A = 0 sodas, B = 6 sodas, C = 12 sodas

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


Quest 3:

Stay away from screens after 10 in the evening. And read some of these dead tree books.

Measurement: A = 5 books, and no screentime; B = 3 books, and no screentime; C = 1 book, and a lot of screentime.

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


Life Quest:

Clean my place. My flat is gross. I am not really happy with it and I don't invite friends over to my place because I am ashamed. So I want to clean it again, and have a small party in 6 weeks.

Measurement: A = livingroom, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom are clean; B = livingroom, kitchen, and bathroom are clean;

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



The job loss was a wakeup call! I want to get my shit together. And I will.

i think having a party is a noble pursuit and a great reward. 


You might notice that someone has added a tag to your post.  This is not to box you into a corner but rather because your goals or lifestyle have links to the guild you've been tagged and we'd like to bring you to the attention of one of their guild ambassadors. These ambassadors will be able to offer you advice, encouragement and support on your goals.  You don't even have to wait around for them to come introduce themselves to you, you are more than welcome to pop into the Adventurers' board and introduce yourself to the guildies there. I am also around to answer any questions that you might have so do not hesitate to PM me.


Good Luck with your challenge

Reducing your intake of soda is a great start as far as diet. I'm still on and off with it, but I don't drink it as much as I used to. As far as the iced tea goes, you can absolutely make your own cold brew in addition to hot tea.


You're going to nail this, I'm sure :)

I often invite people over so I'll have to clean. :)  Good luck on your challenge!


I love walking. It's really better exercise than most people think. You don't need a gym or fancy gear. Even if you can't quite make it 30 minutes everyday, a 5 or 10 minutes walk can lift the spirits and just going out to look at green things can make you feel like a part of the real world. I have a practice of looking for the beautiful thing everyday. It could be a sunset, or a moonrise or a rainbow or a rainstorm. Maybe a bird taking flight, a leaf falling, or a flower growing from the sidewalk.  It could be a bus driver who was nice to me, or someone who smiled to me that day. Whatever it is I notice it and treasure it. Its hard to be alone and unemployed, but as Heraclitus says, 'All things are in flux, nothing remains the same.' You can get through this.

Your first day was off, but there are plenty of chances left to set things right. Don't give up.

How was the rest of the week?

 I'm exercising, because I want to get my stamina and strength. I enjoy medieevil swordmanship,  Tai Chi, yoga, aikido and fire spinning. I'm also a roleplaying nerd and a book worm. Let's fight the procrastination dragon!

Hi Benedikt! 


It's a great step to reduce your soda consume from 3 to 1 litre! That is awesome and a really good base to go on.  ^_^



How are you going now?
