My Epic Quest for this year is to start hiking and get up to a 5mile hike in before the end of the year. I used to hike when I was a kid, I'm talking like 13-16 years old. I love the outdoors but I'm not particularly athletic so I think this might be an outdoor activity I could get into. 

Long story short, I'm following your challenge and cheering you on! 17 miles!  :victorious:

 I'm exercising, because I want to get my stamina and strength. I enjoy medieevil swordmanship,  Tai Chi, yoga, aikido and fire spinning. I'm also a roleplaying nerd and a book worm. Let's fight the procrastination dragon!

And that's why your the best hobbit around!

Aww, you <3

70 hours a week at work + school? I wish you luck for this tough time. No wonder you're not updating regularly this time.

Just do what you can and don't overwork yourself. I guess that's what you're doing. I just wanted to send you a reminder to make sure, you don't stress yourself about not keeping up with your goals 100%. Your workshedule sounds like a killer.

Hopefully next week gets better. Good luck my friend.

Can you imagine, soon it's one year. :)

And we never skipped a challenge. *high five*

(Ok, I ended some of them earlier.)

Mh, somehow I'm not always getting notifications for your thread.

Just an update: This week so far has been a total wash! I was looking at studying abroad in Belgium, working on my French, working on my promotion at work, working on my Term paper, and trying to work out; in short I crashed...I didn't sleep for 3 nights due to stress, ate like hell, stopped drinking water, and missed a few work outs. I am going to try and relax and re-balance for the rest of the week.

It's okay! Prioritize mental and emotional health - then get back to the physical!

I walked 4.9 miles and did an upper body work out. I'm starting to feel a little bit of balance in my life, I think I may be a little bit more responsive and a part of next challenge.
