Hey everyone! I'm back! My life has been absolutely crazy the last few months, and I feel the need to get some stability back. So, that's what this challenge is going to focus on!

 

Goal 1: Move! Movement is essential to feeling better! This challenge I will complete the Zombies!5K challenge. This means doing 4 workouts on 3 of the weeks. I will also do some walking (at least 2 miles) on days that I don't run. I have to keep the movement consistent or I end up falling off track very quickly! +3 Stamina, +2 Strength If I complete the entire Zombies!5K challenge I earn an extra +1 Stamina!

 

30-35 days: A (42 days complete)

25-29 days: B 

20-24 days: C 

15-19 days: D

<15 days: F

 

Goal 2: I need to hydrate more consistently. I feel better when I'm hydrated. So, I need to drink at least 4 of my water bottles (24 oz each) every day. +3 Wisdom

 

30-35 days: A (39 days complete)

25-29 days: B 

20-24 days: C 

15-19 days: D 

<15 days: F 

 

Goal 3: My eating habits really suck. This challenge, I will not eat any fast food at all. I may go out to a restaurant once to celebrate my wife's birthday. +2 Wisdom +2 Constitution

 

30-35 days: A (40 days complete)

25-29 days: B 

20-24 days: C 

15-19 days: D 

<15 days: F

 

Life Goal: Spend at least 10 minutes a day working on my novel (unless I finish it and get it ready to be submitted for publication).

Day 1 Check In:

   I did my first Zombies!5K Run

   I drank 4 bottles of water

   I ate no fast food

   I did NOT work on my novel :(

 

However, I did not work on my novel because my USB bracelet with my novel on it accidentally got left at work. So, I will go get it today (I hope) and work on my novel for 20 minutes today to make up for yesterday!

 

And, thanks for the welcome back, guys! It's nice to know people still remember me! I'm hoping to be a bit more active online this challenge, but we'll see. I've got work stuff going on, and I'm trying to watch (for the first time) Supernatural.

Day 2

   Walked for 2 miles.

   Drank a little more than 4 bottles of water.

   No fast food was consumed! Thanks go to my awesome wife for making the yummiest vegetarian meatloaf with sweet and sour sauce!

   The USB was found, and 20 minutes worth of work was done on my novel. Normally I don't let myself make up missed days, but since this was missed due to a lost USB and not to my laziness, I'm allowing it this once.
