ElemHH Posted September 16, 2015 Report Share Posted September 16, 2015 When I started my first challenge, I didn't see the point of battle logs. In my mind i thought you already have your challenge thread, why not just keep that active until the next one starts, then transition over.During my time here people have told me that they use their battle log to keep track of all of the things that would clutter up their challenge threads with too much detail. That made sense but didn't apply to me, i write long and rambling posts and probably give way too much information.A medical condition (gallstones) forced me out of this current challenge cycle, now I'm glad this section is here. During the week between challenges and the first few days of this challenge, I have either been in pain, in the hospital, or at home recouperating. So working out has pretty much been a no-no, but i had plenty of time to work on my other goals, but i did nothing. This week I decided to just go for a 5mile walk each day instead of working out, to let my body ease back into it. I went out Monday, but couldn't be bothered yesterday and took a 4 hour bath instead. today i didn't feel like walking either. I decided that i need to go back to making myself accountable, even if no one ever reads this, i need it to be here to keep me on track. With that decision made I decided to start Darebee's 90 days of Action Looking at the routine it looked simple and easy, i decided to go for the full 7 sets of level 3.The routine is simple, but I definitely didn't find it easy. I'm happy that i underestimated the routine though, because that made me decide in advance to do 7 sets. Had I just started doing sets and seeing how I felt I probably would have stopped at 3, there is a small chance I would have pushed to 5, but don't thing i would have carried on to 7. I did the routine as it is written, the only thing I wasn't sure on was whether it was 10 lunges, or 10 lunges per leg, so I did the 10 per leg to be on the safe side. i used the sites timer to give myself 30 seconds break between each set.Unfortunately I didn't think to time how long the full workout took me, it would be nice to know how long I was at it. During my last challenge cycle I did the Inhome parkour fitness program from the Tapp brothers. It was a good course and I plan on doing it again, it kicked my arse at times and made me really work. But today's workout pushed me harder than any of those training days and made me sweat more. So I think this Darebee program is going to prove to be worthwhile. I usually end each post with a motivational/inspirational picture.This one doesn't quite fit, but this week has been a bad one for all of my family (I ended up in hospital twice, My nan died, My brothers girlfriend almost lost an eye in a work accident-she's healing now and my dad's elderly dog died-It hit him and his wife harder than they thought it would) and I wanted something that would be a reminder that we can't always control what life throws at us, we just control how we deal with it and move forward. 6 Quote Level - 3 Race - Vampire Class - AssassinSTR 6 | DEX 7 | STA 5 | CON 4 | WIS 3 | CHA 6 Weight loss ( Highest weight 224lb / Current weight 186.0lb / Goal weight 175lb ) 77.6%77.6% Current challengeBattle logPrevious challenges = 2 , 1 Link to comment
