Jonesy's Adventure in Assassining DA style v.2 Reloaded


Jonesy

Recommended Posts

 

 

I died last challenge and am reloading to my last saved point. Time to go at it again but only after making some adjustments. You live, die, reload and learn right??

Oh welcome back! If you are here to see how we did against the Darkspawn you might be disappointed. I know I’m pissed as hell! Let me fill you in.

 

HXptzUDGDjimNWkzVIDqJxQ-dAowmlsWeLooDyya   

 

Alistair and I did get to see a little darkspawn action while we raced to light the beacon in order to signal the army. When we got up to the top we fought this wicked big troll, which we totally killed. We barely managed to light the Beacon and send out the signal. The coward Loghain turned tail and King Cailan’s army fell. Duncan fell. Alistair and I only escaped because Flemeth, the witch of the wild, saved us. Now it’s just Alistair and I, we are being hunted and the Grey Warden are considered traitors. Flemeth has offered help and has instructed her daughter, Morrigan, to travel with us.

Lothering

Alistair and I are being hunted, the Grey Wardens are being called traitors, and we don’t know what to do. All we know right now is that we are the only Grey Wardens left here and the Darkspawn are coming. We can’t stay and help every town we travel through but we can help them defend themselves. Morrigan really hates this idea.

 

Free the Qunari prisoner :

dU0BZSFtbQFnjZrrVSHLeuieEpVjiB60ZFUaA8iN

 

There is a guy, well a Qunari, just hanging out in a cage. He’s not much of a talker and it sounds like he might have done something horrible. Right now we could use all the help we can get so I’m going to see if I can get him to come with us. Turns out, in order to free the Qunari prisoner, we need to talk to the Chantry, since they have his key. To help out the Chantry we need to help the villagers and make a weekly donation to their coffers. Need to make a donation to the coffer 2 times a week in order to free Sten, that’s the Qunari’s name, and take him into our custody.

Exercise Quest:

1. 2 Cardio sessions

 

Thoughts from last challenge : I need to be less picky about what I consider cardio. Do I need to go to the gym? Yes, but that’s not the only way I can get in cardio.

 

Take care of the bandits :

3Uttlm-W5YsU2SqkrvhA_UrnQXfAZBLNfvNkbGGn

 

There are bandits everywhere in Lothering. They’ve come to take advantage of travelers and block the Imperial Highway. In order for the villagers and fleeing refugees to move on, we are going to make travelling a little safer. I mean we are in the middle of a Blight, so safer not SAFE.

Exercise Quest:

1. BodyWeight Workout 3x a week

 

Thoughts from last challenge : I need to be less set in my ideas of what I think qualifies as a workout. I don’t need to do 10 exercises for it to be a workout or follow one of the workouts I want to get in. As long as the effort is genuine and I’m working hard it will count..

 

Make Health potions :

FxPvuFbucYO_aGu3olwz8yfkSdYY_II4-bypqZM7

 

There are a lot of people here in Lothering. Lots of refugees and some of them have been wounded. One of the villagers said that health potions would go a long way in helping the refugees and current villagers survive another day. Think of the children!!

Goal is to get 60 health potions for the village!

Food Quest:

Add more veggies! I will acquire 1 health potion for each handful of veggies added to a meal.

 

Thoughts from last challenge : I did really well getting in veggies last challenge so I’m going to up my game here. I’m not going to limit my goal but open it up.

 

Collect Toxin for Traps :  

CwPgpt0hlI2H1P-2nlR8lJPlnD3052AVLJ2i8fCr

 

Some of the local farmers need help protecting their farms and have asked us to help them make their poison traps. I know a guy who can make the traps so we are going to help the farmers by collecting 4 toxins for the traps.

Life Quest :

Take out the trash every week.

 

Thoughts from last challenge : I’m not limiting myself to just garbage. Yes I’ll still take out the garbage each week but I have items I’ve been holding onto for no reason. I have a Grill I’ve been wanting to get rid of, some bags of paper I need to take care of and a decorative plate I want to sell or donate.

 

 

I won’t let the people of Lothering down again.

Took a vacation day because I was maxed out and needed to kill some Vaca hours. Pretty sure subconsciously I picked today so I could go see Civil War in a slightly less packed theater. Lol

The same as before but I was so set on going to the gym last challenge that anything not at the gym made it fell like it was not worthy. It got better towards the end of last challenge but the treadmill, elliptical, walking outside, jumping rope, hiking, step up workout, & Kickboxing are all cardio. Mentally I just need to get over the fact that the gym is not the only place cardio can happen. :)

It's still early but I figured I would get this posted before I go play some video games. I had a fantastic workout today! Soccer game + Hockey Game + Zombies, Run! + punk rock music = KickAss time. I jogged for 40 straight mins with 4-1min bursts. Usually I walk for the majority of a my Zombies, Run! mission but this time, NOPE! Did 45 mins on the treadmill and while I'm really slow it was still jogging. After the treadmill I decided to do 15 mins on the elliptical. Then finished my workout with 5 mins of stretching.

That's very true! Some of those workouts look somewhat intimidating.

Hey there! Following as usual :) You have great goals. I always find it easier to add something healthy to my diet than omitting something unhealthy. As for the cardio, my experience tells me there's no need for a gym. I'm too self conscious to exercise in public. I usually walk almost everywhere (no one on the streets notice it's my workout), and use stairs instead of elevators (I can always say I have claustraphobia, which isn't totally a lie). I still benefit from cardio and I've never set foot in a gym.

I've been wanting to try the Zombies, Run! I've been nervous though because I don't think I can run that long.

 

you're in luck!

Option 1: you don't have to run! The chases are completely optional, so you can do whatever you want while you listen. Walk, run, bike, etc. When I play, I normally do walk/jog intervals because I sure as heck can't run 30-40 minutes straight! You can even toggle between short, medium, and long runs (20-30, 30-45, and 45++ if I recall correctly)

Option 2: There's a really good Zombies, Run! couch to 5k type program. I enjoyed this thoroughly before jumping in on the main ZR app

Love the challenge and super happy to be on team Hellfire with you!!!

 

I'm also expanding my cardio options this challenge.  Lots of Darebee workouts and (hopefully) outside options.
