imprimis5 Posted October 24, 2016 Report Share Posted October 24, 2016 The Two Guardians A month ago, I traveled far and wide to seek and slay a giant beast. I ran miles and miles until I caught its trail. When it charged, I was able to call upon the aspect of the eagle in order to plant an ash arrow shaft in its right eye. Apparently, regardless of the damage this beast had done throughout the countryside, it was the pet of a giant. This giant was so angry at the death of its pet that it attacked and wounded me on my arm. I have no choice but to recover and continue questing, however. I have heard tell of of a magical oil that is said to grant many abilities to one who uses it. It is held in a land far away, and I must acquire it! However, it is protected by two guardians: a beast of flesh and a beast of dreams. I must get to the cave wherein lies the oil as quickly as possible, defeat the guardians, and return home. I have also discovered that my nemesis learned of the oil at the same time and will be after it as well, and I must arrive first or risk losing it all. The Quest for the Oil: I'm continuing to eat paleo, but I'd really like to work more fish into my diet. It always seems harder to cook well, so I'm a little scared of it. There are so many benefits to eating good quality fish, though! So this particular challenge is to prep a fish-based lunch for at least one week. The Beast of Flesh: More gym time. I am going to continue my plan of at least four times at the gym per week. The Beast of Dreams: I've been having a rough time with my emotional status lately. I really need to be getting treatment again, probably both therapy and medication, but I'll leave that up to what the doctor says. The challenge this time around is to get in to see the doctor about my mental health. Racing the Nemesis: On 13 November, I am running in my very first 5k. I'm continuing to train for this by running at least 3 times a week. 1 Quote Rangers, ho!
