Psyberion Posted August 21, 2016 Report Share Posted August 21, 2016 It's been a while since I visited this site the last time, and during that time I've fell back into old habits. I'm here again now, and I'm quite determined to actually get a grip and stay on target this time. If not for my physical fitness I need this for my mental fitness and dicipline, and if I am to get where I want in life I'm going to need a metric tonne of that. So I'm really going to make sure I don't miss more challenges, and that I stick to my plans. As I've fallen back into old habits, what with eating take-out, spending whole days doing jack-s**t and only walking to my job (about 1000feet) for exercise, I'm going to keep this challenge quite similar to my first one, with some tweaking. In all of the quests I am going to track my progress in terms of percents finished. Doing what I'm supposed to every day of the challenge, i.e. 28/28 days, will result in 100% completion. Only doing what I should 21/28 days results in 75% completion. Quest 1: Quitting take-out Same deal as last time. Take out is bad food, it's expensive and frankly I don't really enjoy it. It grants instant satisfaction, sure, but I always end up feeling swollen and it feels like letting myself down. So no more fast food! Like last time I am giving myself a few exeptions because of times I know I will eat at restaurants, so that I don't have to feel too guilty about that. Those exceptions are 25/8-28/8. Hopefully I will not actually need to make exceptions all of these days, but I will grant myself the right to do so. Finishing this quest at 100% will grant me +2 WILL. Quest 2: Proper hydration I'm quite terrible at drinking water. Most of the time I drink coffee, tea or something else caffeinated. While I'm not going to quit caffeine (I'm a computer scientist, I need it to function..) I am going to start drinking more water. My goal is to drink at least 2L (67fl.oz) of water each day, with an additional 2dl (6fl.oz) glass of water per cup of coffee. I.e. if I drink one cup of coffee one day (like that ever happens) that would result in me drinking 2.2L of water. Finishing this challenge will not grant any stats, but I'll get to be well hydrated for once. Quest 3: Beginner bodyweight workout + running For my third quest I think it's time to actually start working with my body. Last challenge I tried the Shaolin Workout, which did increase my flexibility but made me physically and mentally tired from doing the same thing every single day. This time I'm going to give the beginner bodyweight circuit a go, along with some barefoot running. I'm going to do both three times a week, alternating the days (circuit Monday, Wednesday, Friday, running Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday). It might sound like a lot to start out with, but the running will be quite slow as I'm just starting out with the barefoot running. It'll be fine. Finishing this quest at 100% will grant me +2 STR and +2 STA. Quest 4: No more zero-days Once again I want to make sure that I do at least something productive every day. The goals have changed slightly since the last challenge, but never the less this is important. Every single day of this challenge, I am going to do one of the following: Work on my RPG Study to become a HAM operator Study electrical engineering Study computer-lingual semantics Finishing this quest at 100% provide +2 WILL. There we go, that's my four quests down for this challenge. Keeping the last challenge in mind I think that Q4 and Q2 will be quite easy, although I'll have a hard time tracking Q2. Hopefully the other two quests will work fine as well, but they'll be harder to stay on target with. As with the last challenge I'm going to post my progress every day, so that I don't forget what day I did or didn't do a challenge.
