Nightshadow discovers his alter ego


Recommended Posts

It's time to build a super hero!! After about a year and a half of doing random things in an attempt to get healthy and get focused it is time to get serious and figure out where I want to go. I will do this by reconfirming habits that have slipped in the past few weeks and working through who my alter ego is.

 

Fitness: To match up with mini-challenge

Super Strength - Do Convict conditioning 3 times a week

Super Toughness - Run 3 times a week

Shape Shifting - Do at least one yoga video a week to work on mobility

 

Nemesis Fight:

Cut alcohol out of work nights...again. My first NF challenge was to do this and it has reared it's head again the past few weeks. My excuse is stress and work transition, but it is causing me to feel even worse so that is bullshit. YOU SHALL NOT DEFEAT ME.

 

Build the Story:

I just finished Level Up Your Life. Amazing, of course. To apply these things I want to start with:

Write My Origin Story

Discover My Alter Ego

Write My Level 50

Begin My Quests:

  • List out 50 goals of varying difficulties
  • Make leveling system for 10 of the goals
  • Add these quests and other info to my LUYL profile

 

Starting measurements: Weight: Waist:

The transition from randomness can be a real doozy, but it feels great to make steps toward a solid goal! You can do it, Hero!

I love how you fit it directly into the mini structure, nice way to set up for success! I'm working on drinking less too, so I'm definitely excited to follow along!

Thanks!! I was already thinking about all the Level Up Your Life stuff so when I saw the mini it fit perfectly!!

 

Thanks for all the support everybody!

Week one went pretty well! Here are some updates. Overall I have felt much better this week so even though I didn't do exactly as planned I'm happy so far.

 

Fitness: To match up with mini-challenge

Super Strength - 2/3, I'm going to add Sunday's workout to tonight's to balance out and cover it

Super Toughness - 3/3, I did not run but I walked a ton this week. I may try to run this week but I think I will keep walking.

Shape Shifting - No go. We were out of town this weekend so I didn't try this weekend. I'm gonna try for some short videos at work and see what happens.

 

Nemesis Fight:

Cut alcohol out of work nights: Good to go! 5/5. It was a little rough at first, mostly because I have trouble sleeping. Overall I felt more rested and my sleep is starting to balance out. Hopefully this week will continue going well.

Week 2 was pretty good! I did all of my workouts and such and was able to keep up with those, so that is great. A little slip on the no booze but not too bad. On Tuesday we went out to the Rupaul's Drag Race Battle of the Seasons tour. It was incredible, but we are for sure too old to be going out on Tuesday night. The nice thing was that we didn't have anything to drink at the show, which is pretty much a big deal, but we were so jazzed up when we got home that we had a nightcap before bed. Still, overall success. I still haven't done a yoga video which means that it is apparently not a need/not going to work. I think I might try doing basic mobility stretches in the morning instead of trying to do a formal video.

Super Strength - 4/3, I caught up from last week.

Super Toughness - 3/3, I did not run but I walked a ton this week. I like the walking so I think I will stick with it.

Shape Shifting - No go. Still gonna try for some videos but might just do other stuff

Cut alcohol out of work nights: Overall success 4/5.

I'm so jealous you went to Battle of the Seasons! How was it? Who was there? Who was the best?

 

I'm glad week 2 was pretty good! Nice job on that super strength especially!

It was awesome! We had a really great time! It was a big group, it was Pearl, Violet, Miss Fame, Courtney Act, Adore, Alaska, Sharon, Phi Phi, and Michelle Visage. I'm not gonna lie, I think my favorite was Michelle, though there were a lot of great performances.

Weeks 3 and 4

 

Fitness: To match up with mini-challenge

Super Strength - 4/6, schedule was weird and I missed a few.

Super Toughness - 6/6, I walked a ton. I know it was more than 3 a week, but not sure exactly.

Shape Shifting - I did one video. My schedule doesn't really work for videos right now so I think I'm gonna try something else.

 

Nemesis Fight:

Cut alcohol out of work nights: Overall success 8/10. I had a couple but overall it went well.

 

Build the Story:

I worked on my quests but didn't finish everything. I am going to carry this over to the next challenge and keep working on it.

Wow, that's awesome, such a good group! The video I've seen of Michelle doing Poor Unfortunate Queens from BOTS (I think it was this year, but not 100% sure) was amazing!  As a recent transplant to Jersey, I'm slowly adopting Michelle as my spirit animal.
