LadyShello aligns with House Stark and becomes Ranger of the North


Shello

Recommended Posts

The time of season’s change will be upon us soon.  Winter is coming.  We know not exactly when but winter is long and brings with it many perils.  I intend to be well prepared and well-armed.   I seek health and happiness and no White Walkers will get in my way. 

In order to find my health and happiness I have decided to align myself House Stark.  Starks may not have an easy job but they fight for what is worth fighting, they fight their own battles, and they stay the course even when things get tough.

Main Quest:  I am now starting my 2nd year of challenges and I have 2 main Quests.  I am still pursuing my original quest to reach my ideal weight and/or bf%.  I have struggled so far in 2015 to have any progress on this front but I am maintaining around 75-80 pounds lost.  I may not be at my goal yet but my focus is changing from the fat I want to lose to the strength I want to gain.  2nd Main Quest is focusing on skills and strength to be gained – becoming Ranger of the North

Motivation: Last challenge I trained for and conquered my first 5K run so to help motivate myself I have a new training goal.  This one is more long term as I will not be participating until October 2016 but this exemplifies what I want to become.

 

 

 

 

The Stark House

S – Strength

T – Tai Chi

A – Art

R – Rangers gonna Ranger

K – Kilocalories In, Calories Out

 

 

The Goals

Strength – Strength training x3/week (x2 for Week 0) Activities vary

  • Shovelglove*
  • Strength class at gym (boxing, barbell, etc)
  • Rock wall Climbing*
  • Neila Rey workouts
  • You Are Your own Gym workouts

 

Tai Chi – Tai Chi practive x3/week (x2 for Week 0)

I tend to have a lot of anxiety this time of the year so this activity is designed to help with meditation/relaxation but also with mobility.  I’ll be learning the Wu style Tai Chi using this website.

 

Art –1 hour of practice time per week

I’ve been inspired by NF artists so I want to get back into this hobby.  I haven’t studied in art and I never developed any real talent.  But I found this website with lessons.  I’ll be focusing on drawing and acrylics.  I will also allow crazy quilting as an artistic activity.  Christmas isn’t that far away after all. 

 

Rangers gonna Ranger  - Focus on Rangerly activities.  Each fitness activity for the strength or KICO goals that is of the rangerly sort will allow me to earn $2 for ranger gear.  I just bought a sledgehammer for Shovelglove and I’ll likely need to upgrade at some point in the future as this was a started hammer.  I also want hiking boots, and a backpack, and….. 

  • Rangerly activities include those already listed and indicated with an (*) but any other activities that meet this requirement will also count.  This would be any fitness activity focused on functional fitness, self defense, weapon handling, etc…

 

(Kilo)CICO – Maintain a deficit of 750 calories per day.  Track better.

Last challenge I merely needed to maintain any deficit and I merely maintained.  I want to tighten the belt a little on this challenge so I need to keep the deficit a little larger and a little more accurate. 

 

CI – Using MFP.  I’ll also be automatically adding 100 calories to each day to make up for those hidden calories until the data proves I no longer need it.

CO – using my UP2 fitness tracker and aiming for calories burned of at least 2900 using various activities.  I’ll underestimate the intensity of running to make up for the apps overestimation of calories burned.

  • Running
  • Hiking*
  • Cardio classes at the gym
  • Rucking the dog*

All will be tracked using the Spreadsheet of Epic Lore.

Following, will comment later I'm spending too much time on NF today and not enough on work! D'oh!

 

That's one of the hazards of being a Doodlie.  Even aside from that I always have the hardest time getting actual work done on the first day the challenges are posted.  Today is no exception.  And, of course, i have tons of actual work to do.

Week 0 Itinerary

 

Week 0 is underway and I am ready to start tracking success.  I'll use Week 0 to start my goals and also to prepare for the following weeks.  There are many new things for this challenge.

I haven't really pinned down a weekly plan to juggle all of these goals but here are a few things I'd like to get done this week

 

  • Call on passes for local hiking trails for membership rates
  • Check for art supplies needed for online lessons
  • Find a pack and appropriate weights for rucking the dog
  • Get acquainted with Shovelglove movements
  • Get Devlin McFarlan (my new sledgehammer) properly outfitted for training
  • Get acquainted with TaiChi website and start learning

 

I have some scheduling issues that will get in the way of goals for the week that I will need to work around.  

  • 2 boy scout meetings
  • Princess Peach's birthday night
  • Separate birthday party for Princess Peach

Spreadsheet of Epic Lore

 

eE4ff1h.png?1

 

Spreadsheet posted and updated.  Not a great start but I am having a recurrence of the migraine from the weekend and had tons of stuff that had to get done.  No fitness activities for the day so I ended up with a surplus and there is a red square on the spreadsheet already.  That's OK.  I am not upset over it.  Allowances are made for migraines and had I been able to get some fitness in today I would have at least had some deficit, though not the 750.  I also had an extra snack at the end of the day.  I was genuinely hungry and I stand by it.

 

It is now past my bed time with another busy day tomorrow.

Since we're talking GoT here, that spreadsheet is now called The Wall (of Awesome). Just get enough good stats so you can climb to the top!

 

Hmm... A srpreadsheet that's filled from bottom to up? A pic of The Wall as background? Is this Excel spreadsheet thing going too far in my head already?
