Off Week Goals: Lost in the Woods

 

firefly-mal-still-flying.gif?w=650

Inara: You’re lost in the woods. We all are. Even the captain. The only difference is, he likes it that way.
Mal: The only difference is, the woods are the only place I can see a clear path. What’s your business here?

- Firefly, Eposide "Serenity"

 

I'm back. Again. And where I am right now is the dead center of the woods.

 

I just finished my EMT-Basic certification class (still waiting to register nationally), and got back from the anime convention I was going to. Since I was focusing on surviving 15 hour days during July and getting my costumes ready for the past two weeks, my life's been left to its own devices. Entropy did its work so I'm mostly at loose ends. Welcome to Respawn number I-stopped-counting-a-long-time-ago-but-here-we-go-again.

 

I'm planning on focusing my challenge on tackling some of the Academy quests, so my off week goals are to get through the housekeeping bits of the Academy and into the meat of the nutrition and fitness quests. But, like I said, this is the woods. I'd been pretty familiar with the Academy, but the recent overhaul added a bunch of new quests (Exciting! Loud noises!) so I have no idea what I'm getting myself into anymore. So I'll be making up my off-week as I go.

 

Day 1 (8/15/16): Mindset

Snap those Before Photos - Done! Sent to my accountabilibuddy.

Take Your Measurements - I'm taking these first thing in the morning because that seems to be best practice.

Find your Big Why - Complete! This got me a Level Up on the Academy. :)

Share your Big Why - Complete! See below.

Square away the Galley (not Academy related)- Not today. Had to deal with medication withdrawal so cleaning wasn't a good option.

 

Day 2 (8/16/16): Mindset

Take Your Measurements - Complete! Results below.

The Art of Goal Setting - Complete! Goals listed below.

Start your Epic Quest - Complete!

Share your Epic Quest - Complete! <-- Click it!! :D 

 

Day 3 (8/17/16): Mindset

I heard about the 12 Week Quest emails for the Academy (which you can get here if you want them) that let you know which quests to do in what order if you'd rather move around between the different modules. It starts with a welcome email so I'll be getting my first mission tomorrow. ^_^

Gimme The Loot! - Complete! When I square away my apartment by this weekend, I'm going to buy myself a PS3 so I can have friends over for movies and games.

Customize Your Batcave -

Join the NF Academy Facebook Group - I've been a member for a while, so I just ticked this quest off. Hail the Triceratocracy! Love you, Tricerasisters!

 

[[Ok, I know I disappeared on this one. Super-legit excuse: my Academy account(s, actually, which was the problem) was in flux and I got panicked over whether or not I'd be attending camp. After emailing back and forth with Staci and Noel (the best!!!), my accounts are consolidated and I have access to all the things again. However, my accounts are consolidated under my new email address, which is tied to the account I wasn't using. So I've been rebuilding my Academy presence over the past few days.]]

THE CHALLENGE:

Leaving Abnigation Behind

(Divergent Theme!!! Excitement!)

 

tumblr_inline_nth43ySVDo1t09k6m_500.gif

BURN IT WITH FIRE!!

 

TL;DR

I matter, and I don't have to be a doormat to be a good person.

 

Summary:

This challenge is going to be a little weird. It's my third first challenge since completely rebooting my stats, so I'll still be trying to get to Level I half-way through the challenge. Because the majority of my old system experience isn't tied to the outcome of this challenge so much as perseverance (appropriate for the theme, I think ;b), I'm not going to strictly count out my goals (i.e. some will be multi-part, and most will be personal rather than purely fitness).

 

Part 1:

I am selfish.

tumblr_mpay48WOhA1r0wh39o3_r1_250.gif

(Shhhhhh I know it's out of context)

 

I'm really bad at being selfish. What I'm good at is being a doormat and throwing myself under convenient buses to solve other peoples' problems. The problem is, after getting road rash enough times without anyone sticking around to help you up, you start to run out of energy. So I'm finally asking, "What about me?"

 

The goal is to stick to the Academy email plan for four weeks (yep, this is the multi-part goal). It's my version of being selfish - it means I'll have to sneak time out of my day to take care of my health and further my own agenda.

 

{XP: 1 CON / Loot: Triceratops or NF tank top of choice}

 

Part 2:

I look in mirrors whenever I want, dammit.

14268438247611-anigif_enhanced-buzz-2431

 

I thought the best representation of selflessness in Divergent was the mirror. Because as much as mirrors represent vanity in our culture, they also represent self-awareness.

 

I'm going to take a little time before work every morning to choose my clothes, do my hair, and maybe get wild and wear some makeup. I essentially work on a construction site, but that doesn't stop any of the other women.

 

{XP: CHA / Loot: Go shopping for better clothes at Goodwill, because even though I'm leaving Abnegation I'm still cheap as hell.}

 

Part 3:

I run wild.

tumblr_mwl9sxgleI1r98xw9o3_500.gif

 

Admittedly, this is setting up for the next challenge. I'm going to go on an extended walk or run once a week, because there's no better expression of freedom than running, and I have some really badass workout clothes. ;b

 

{XP: 1 DEX / Loot: Parkour gloves}

 

Part 4:

Fear doesn't shut me down.

enhanced-buzz-31686-1374180019-18.jpg

 

No more fear-sleeping. Which is actually a thing I do. I'm like a fainting goat; if I get stressed out enough, I just go fall asleep. So the only thing I have to do to ace this goal is do literally anything but sleep when I'm feeling stressed.

 

{XP: 1 CON / Loot: Dauntless tank top for the next challenge :3)

Day 1: 8/22/16

I am selfish - I started my food log (day 1/5) and the "Walk to Mordor" quest (day 1/30) today. I'm debating starting the *actual* walk to Mordor, but I don't like the accuracy (or lack thereof) of my current available tracking systems. I also calculated my Base Metabolic Rate (1562.5 Kcal).

I look in mirrors whenever I want, dammit - Soooo today was kind of a flop, but I won. I tried to do laundry last night. I say "tried" because the laundry made it into the dryer, but I didn't manage to turn the dryer ON. So this morning I went to get my fresh clothes and figured they'd probably soured. Instead of bailing on my quest and trying to make the soured clothes work (which, sad to admit, I've done before), I repaired an expensive pair of jeans I'd damaged and found a clean shirt.

Fear doesn't shut me down - I stayed up guys! I even kind of managed to relax while I was bumming around my apartment awake.

 

Day 2: 8/23/16

I am selfish -

Food tracking (2/3) -

Walk to Mordor (2/30) -

Sleep journal (1/7) -

I look in mirrors whenever I want, dammit -

Fear doesn't shut me down - This doesn't really apply today, because I've been getting headaches and stomach aches for a few days so I'm going to crash as soon as I get home and sleep until it's time for work tomorrow. I'll set an alarm to eat and get some water. It's the only sure-fire way I know to get better without taking leave.

My big why: I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. I'm sick of fighting fatigue, depression, joint misalignments, and allergies just to get through the day. I've already proven time and time again that I'm strong, resilient, and fierce. It's high time to stand in my strength and claim who I already know I am.
