[Pathfinder] Signcutting


Recommended Posts

I'm Pathfinder, and this is a respawn. I'm post-shy: I am acutely aware that accountability is the only thing that makes me work on fitness, but for some reason I seem bound and determined to struggle and fail in silence (thanks, brain). I'm looking for an accountability group with an RPG lean or a fandom I'm familiar (and caught up) with, so if anyone has suggestions, please let me know!

 

Current Terrain:

I'm taking an Emergency Medical Technician class and working four hours a night. I just moved into a new apartment, so most things are in boxes or in places I don't remember putting them. This means sleep is at a premium (between transportation, class, and work, I'm doing 15 hour days). I've also learned that 15 hour days mean I turn into a food vacuum, so I've been eating just about anything that comes into arm's reach. Coffee is my starter fluid and primary fuel source, partially because of dependence and partially because sleep is at a premium.

 

To survive this terrain, I'm going to have to focus on tracking food, finding water, fixing up my leg, and passing my EMS course.

 

Foraging:

I've pretty much been scavenging food - making random runs to convenience stores, raiding my snack stash at work, and ducking into random take-out restaurants. The goal is to track what I'm eating, about how much, and when(ish). Then I'll note the time if I have a sugar crash.

Passing: 75% compliance. [Experience Get! + 1 WIS]

Aced it: 90% compliance. [Loot Get! Glucometer with accessories]

 

Dowsing:

Drink 2L of water per day.

Passing: 75% compliance. [Experience Get! + 1 CON]

Aced it: 90% compliance. [Loot Get! Fun tea infuser]

 

On the Mend:

Rehab my leg. Do something that's good for recovery twice a day. This includes stretching, balance and stability work, walking (and light running), and the strength exercises I was given at Physical Therapy. This does not include "shotgunning" my hips (a joint correction they taught me to do to myself), because I have to do that anyways just to keep from being in pain. It's very self-enforcing.

Passing: 75% compliance. [Experience Get! + 1 DEX]

Aced it: 90% compliance. [Loot get! New running shoes]

 

Hunting:

Complete my Basic Emergency Medical Technician class with a passing score. And hopefully in once piece.

Aced it: Passing marks. This is a pass-or-fail goal. [Experience Get! + 1 WIS] [Loot Get! Backpack to start a First Aid Kit]

 

And, of course, the Level 1 stats. At three weeks, I'll be Level 1 and can assign my 10 stat points. They'll be distributed as such: STR 0, DEX 2, CON 1, WIS 6, CHA 1.

Already rocking it! Explored my neighborhood for about an hour this morning with a date (which puts me at 1 hour total for the "Me Knees" mini challenge).

 

Food this morning: 1/2 of a stack of two upside down pineapple pancakes, like three spoonfulls of grits, two slices of ham, two cups of scrambled eggs, tons of coffee, two cokes with tons of ice.

 

Water happened but I have no idea how much, so I'm working my way through my first 1L now.

Wow, you have a lot on right now! Food can be an afterthought when life gets crazy, I totally feel you on that. I love your rewards for each goal too, that's a great idea. 

 

Following along!

EMS: I'm killing it! 88% on the test today, and tested out of four skills. I'm also done with FEMA training, so that's one less thing to worry about.

Food:Didn't keep track, and now I can't remember. I did find out that there will be no more Monster. The anxiety attack I got from the Monster at lunch was fuuuuun.

 

Water: Failed again, about .6L

 

Rehab: I did my stretching, during class then at home.

 

EMS: It went ok. I'm definitely on track to pass.

Also, Ive been going out of my way to walk places. Between Monday's hike to the coffee shop and back and today's round trip to grab lunch, I can add 45 minutes of walking to my total for the mini challenge.

I just realized that I'm doing what I always do - letting myself fade out of a challenge. I am not going to disappear this time. I don't have to win, but I am going to make myself play the game. Well, I'm not going anywhere. I'm going to be on this board until the end of the challenge. I'm going to pick up my complementary first level points through the old paper-based RPG system, and I'm going to complete a challenge. Even if I'm just logging on every day to say I did nothing.

 

7/23/16 - Did not track food. Did not exercise leg. Drank 2L water. I had the day off from EMS.

 

7/24/16 - Did not track food. Drank 1L water. Did my twelve hour ambulance shift for EMT class (and it was so fun!). Stretched leg at night (.5 completion).

 

7/25/16 - [WIP]

Food: Protein drink (0710), Coffee (0800)

Water:

Rehab:

EMS: Lecture day!

Anyways I bombed the first mini-challenge (2/3 hours of walking). I'll say that I wasn't as far out from the building as everyone else so that I can stay on the adventure! Mountain climbers, here I come!

 

Not that I have an ulterior motive in that the mountain climbers can count as leg rehab or anything...
