Madine's Continued Journey to Mordor

Recommended Posts

Last challenge I had been heading to Mordor for a few weeks, and was able to make it part of the way to Rivendell. The journey was not easy, but I stuck with it, got stronger and even reached my 10 pounds lost goal point. Having met the Ranger Strider along my journey thus far, I was impressed with his skills and wanted to learn more of his ways. My goal this challenge is to reach the gates of Rivendell so I can spend my break week relaxing with the Elves. 

 

1. Reach Rivendell - Reaching Rivendell will recquire a lot of cardio. Continue increasing my steps with my fitbit, but also do a cardio workout for 30 mins most days, (+2 STA +1 DEX)

     (A) workout 6 days a week (B )workout 5 days a week © workout 4 or less days a week

2. Study with Strider - Strider has told me that I need to increase my strength to be able to better deal with some of the challenges later on in my journey. I need to develop strength and a sustainable workout plan.

(+2 STR +1 CHA)

   (A) 3 strength sessions in a week (B ) 2 Strength sessions in a week © 1 or less sessions a week

3. Continue to ration my food - the journey has just begun, but it is clear I am still a long ways off from Rivendell. I will need to track my food rations carefully with My Fitness Pal to ensure I have enough to last till I get to the Elves. (+2 WIS +1 CON)

   (A) track and stay in calorie goal 6+ days  (B ) track and stay in calorie goal 4-5 days © track and stay in calorie goal 3 or less days

 

In addition, I have a side quest of cleaning up and reorganizing my living room in my little Hobbit hole so that I can set up a home gym of sorts to keep my working and motivated.  (+1 CHA upon completion)

Thank you! 

 

Day #1 has been good so far. I'm optimistic. Upping my calories to just below maintenance for a week or two so I can focus on getting my protein goals and cutting out junkas much as possible. Off to walk on the treadmill for 30 mins and do a few squats!

Got a bit done on my life quest today. Husband built me a pull up bar! It was $16 total, and the bar can be removed so the bathroom door can actually be used!

It's been a rough couple of weeks honestly. Changed job locations and with that came a high level of stress, so I have been trying to keep my diet, but working out really hasn't happened. I'm pretty disappointed in myself but hoping to get back on the wagon this weekend.

Going well! Done with all of week one and with part of week two and I'm loving it. Started back to strength training last night too. So I'm very hopeful a momentary lapse can be turned around to some good new habits!
