Here's a warning gif to let you know what's coming if you don't reply (and I know where your facebook lives).

He was making good progress across Bretonnia to Basteraux. When he had set out he thought it would be difficult finding sustenance amongst the sparsity of war torn Bretonnia.

 

Everywhere he trod the stench of undeath was present and it did not care what you were - man, woman, child or beast. The fortunate ones had died in such a horrific fashion that they could not rise the rest had become soulless abominations. It had made hunting for food a pointless exercise, the meat was either despoiled or worse.

 

Yet he had surprised himself with his knowledge of local flora and fauna, clearly the lessons that the old abbot had taught him when he was a boy had stuck with him, not only had he managed to survive without hunting he felt stronger than ever.

 

Despite his new found strength he had been unable to find the legendary sword. He had explored where the myths rumoured it to be and had scoured every inch of the place but had not found it, despair had threatened to set in at the thought that he might never find the sword but his iron resolve held and he continued with his quest.

 

It was only that very night that his dreams were visited by a vision of The Lady who had led him to a land he did not recognise where he found the Sword of Lowly Virtue.

 

Upon waking he spent two days and nights thinking on the dram, trying to interpret its message until eventually he deduced the location that the dream was trying to show him and set off on his quest in a new direction . . .

Goal One - 10 Healthy Fuel Meals a week.

 

Ten Meals? Try 17

 

That's right 17 of my 21 meals are what I would call healthy. After worrying I would struggle not eating as much meat the majority of those meals were meat free - Don't worry I'm still having a plenty of protein.

 

These wins include turning down free McDonalds when offered and drinking no alcohol, pop, juice or cordial!

 

I am super pleased with myself. I had a social meal for football on Sunday, but kept it to meat and potatoes and had salad instead of bread and I had a social meal Friday night for a friends birthday and Saturday night when I took my fiancee to the ballet.

 

Friday night we went to a burger place that was meant to be good but I really wasn't enjoying it and was looking forward to a nice vegetable meal as soon as possible.

 

Saturday night instead of having the usual burger that I tend to have when I go out, I made the decision to have something different whenever I go out. On Saturday night this meant bbq ribs, skin on fries and some zesty coleslaw which was delicious.

 

 

Goal Two - Lift weights three times a week and cycle three times a week.

 

I managed two sessions this week just gone rather than three. Primarily that is because I have been trying to exercise at half five in the morning before I go to work which just isn't working for me. Also the gym I was using is grim.

 

So I moved gym which enables me to exercise more easily around work and won't be surprised if I get in 5 or 6 sessions this week so I ain't worried

 

 

Goal Three - 7 Hours of Italian a Week and work on my Epic Quest List

 

I just managed to get in my 7 hours and have got through discs 1 through to 3, started disc 4 today. The discs are really good and I am happy with my progress hopefully I will have a good grasp of Italian by the end of this challenge.

 

Haven't start the Epic Quest List because of birthdays and stuff last week, plan to get some done on it this week

Great start to the challenge Daniel, especially with the food goal.

 

Good going. I've wondered about eating less meat for eco reasons but never actually took the plunge. Interesting to see how well you're doing with it.

I've been thinking of cutting down my meat consumption for the very same reasons.

Great start Bro.  Way to hit it hard.

 

hey, thanks man - I'll swing by your thread asap

I was pretty concerned there for a minute.

 

 

Looks like a solid start to the week mate.

 

Thanks dude

hey man, thanks for stopping by and yea those veggie meals can really even you out.

 

Grim as it sounds I haven't been going to the toilet nearly as much (not that I had some weird problem before) which I am taking to mean that my body is using more of what I eat rather than literally labelling it as crap.

 

 

Good going. I've wondered about eating less meat for eco reasons but never actually took the plunge. Interesting to see how well you're doing with it.

"I knew he was bluffing"

 

It's worth a crack - I was the biggest meat eater ever, literally meat every meal of the day every day of the week, even breakfasts were always meat. I also have shitty willpower so if I can do it anyone can

 

 

Wow, looks like you're back with a vengeance this time! Here's to wishing the momentum keeps you going *raises protein shake*

 

Yea man, and I can feel that Raider tidal wave brewing

Give it a try, it does suck for the first few days and your stomach will be making some weird sounds, but (as long as you maintain protein with eggs and stuff) by about day 4 you should be feeling some of the benefits from it.

 

Then when you do have meat, make it something decent like a great cut of steak and it's glorious - almost like an overload after the no meat.

 

 

Back with a vengeance, indeed.  Great work, Daniel!

 

Look at you a guild leader now, I remember when you were a wee new thing! Gratz on the well deserved promotion and thank you very much for popping by

So since when last we spoke things have been going well.

 

Not had any meat yet this week and have mostly kept myself to vegetarian chilli, sweet potatoes and home made spicy beans with home made shakes in the morning.

 

After some different recipes my fiancee has hit on a really tasty recipe that could seriously be bottled and put on the shop shelf - I will get the combo for ya'll cos caring is sharing but I know it has kiwi and mango in it - it is seriously delicious.

 

I do need to get a few more rapid recipes under my belt because eating the same three things for lunch and dinner will eventually get old.

 

Looking forward to a spot of meat this weekend, it marks 6 years since me and my fiancee have been together so I think we are either going to go somewhere nice or get a phenomenal cut of steak to have at home.
