Good luck!  I like the new challenge and may have to borrow the tracking spreadsheet...

 

Hey no problem! I literally copy and pasted it from Otterbyte, so no problem. I've seen the site before, but I hope this time it sticks. I'm thinking seeing the progression instead of sticking with a silly routine will work better for my personality. Last month's "work out" portion got boring and repetitive. This should change that for me.

Today - February 6th 2017

 

I made a challenge today! Yay!! Very fun to start a new month and a new challenge. This one is definitely going to be tough. I added more categories and such, but they were things I was doing but didn't measure last month. Therefore, I can totally do this and it's going to feel GREAT when I accomplish it. Below is the breakdown of how the points will be distributed and such.

 

D.Va / Gaming and Fun - Bonus points for items I get in DragonVale. (1 point)

Zarya / Strength and Power - Workout MWF with the set routine. Bonus points for each progression. (5 points)

Mercy / Nutrition and Body Image - Eat at least one veggie and one fruit each day. Bonus points for extra servings! (2 points)

Mei / Reading and Relaxation - Read 30 minutes a day. Bonus points for extra books! (%)

Ana / Career and Perseverance - Do something with or about my career everyday (audition, learn, read, email). Bonus points for extra actions. Time to raise my APM. Wait... (1 point)

Widowmaker / Flexibility and Confidence - Stretch M-F for ~10 minutes to achieve those lifelong wanted splits! (5 points)

 

Daily Total: Starts Tomorrow!

D.Va = 0/0

  LEGO Marvel Super Heroes = 50%

  Fallout 4 = 0%

Zarya = 0/0

Mercy = 0/0

Mei = 43%

Ana = 0/0

Widowmaker = 0/0

Lúcio / Positivity - Look at this team, we're gonna do great!

 

PS. What's with the new color system? When I created the challenge I had a ton of options and now as I update it, there are very minimal!! What the heck is that about?

Yes! Ana is great. I love Ana, Mei, and D.Va. I have the most hours on D.Va but the other two are so much fun to play. I play on PC too!! What do you like to play? Comp, QP, Arcade...

Mostly Qp because I haven't got enough game in for Comp.  As much as I love the game I have some many others I play too.  Never tried Arcade how is it?

It's great! Especially since you can get more Loot Boxes that way. 3v3 is very tense and a great way to practice for Comp. The event game is always there (Mei's Snowball for christmas and now Capture the Rooster for the Chinese New Year). These are fun game modes with achievements attached (earn a spray for completing) but they can get frustrating at times! haha. As with the game as a whole, it's a good idea to remember to have fun!!

It feels like there are (next to PC) more Overwatch players on PS then Xbox. 

 

No way? You think so?  I haven't heard this. My husband plays it on the PS4 and I play on the PC. Xbox isn't an option for us, so I never thought about it. hmmmm

Well...i dont know if its completely true. I based this off the LFP console forums. There are more posts for PS4 players then for Xbox Players.

Sounds like you've got this month covered! My two best friends play Fallout 4 and seem to love it ^_^

I think I need to switch to a MWF schedule for my workouts because I never know which day is meant to be for rest! The easiest way I added vegetables was to have frozen sweetcorn and peas; and just shove them in everything: in cous cous to take to work the next day and it'll defrost overnight, or any boiled/fried food, even the final 2 mins of oven cooked foods.  

Good luck with the challenge!

Today - February 7th 2017

Mei / Reading and Relaxation - Woke up to my cat meowing consistently until I opened the door. Yay! Now she has taken my spot on the bed. O_o Silly cat. I read for a good half hour or more and finished the chapter! Woot. (49%)

Widowmaker / Flexibility and Confidence - After reading and my roommate going to work... I get to stretch and drink tea. Hmmm... (5 points)

Ana / Career and Perseverance - Definitely slow going today, but I did update my Voices profile to include the review I got from my last project! There weren't any projects that I was suited for on Voices today, therefore I made it a learning day. I went on reddit to get updated on any articles, jobs, or scholarships that are going around right now. Got an email for an opportunity at free headshot shoot today (a friend's wife is a photographer)! This would be really helpful because a lot of agencies and websites require a headshot, even when you are a Voice Actor!! Haha. Anyway, I emailed her about it so we will see. (1 point)

Mercy / Nutrition and Body Image - My breakfast was delicious as it had a banana on the side, extra lettuce in my sandwich for lunch, and lot of veggies in my Cheater Pot Pie recipe. (3 points)

D.Va / Gaming and Fun - Yesterday was Eleven Little Roosters (BTW, we were right last week!). Which means there was investigation last night. I figured out 4 of the files all by myself, however (dun dun DUN) one of the files was a fake! And I couldn't figure out the last file. So I went to my roommate and he figured it out which gave the last clue to the true file. That sounds confusing, but the point is that we got all 5 bonafide files. The answer will be below on the off chance someone watches Eleven Little Roosters. 

Also, I am playing LEGO right now! Got some time before I have to start making dinner. Lessdothis. (1 point)

Zarya / Strength and Power - Day of Rest. (0 points)

 

Daily Total: Starts Tomorrow!

D.Va = 1/1

  LEGO Marvel Super Heroes = 50%

  Fallout 4 = 0%

  Eleven Little Roosters - Alternative Reality Game

Spoiler

James Wilhelm (SSB) kills Burnie of the IDD.

Zarya = 0/0

Mercy = 3/2

Mei = 49%

Ana = 1/1

Widowmaker = 5/5

Lúcio / Positivity - Though I didn't audition today, I am proud that I updated my profile. It looks a lot better and more professional. I'm excited to get started auditioning again. I am also proud at how my body is craving fruits and veggies. For Super Bowl Sunday, I had a ton of potato skins (which were delicious!!), just a swig of beer, a bit of meat, some cheese-its, etc. Snack food. I was STUFFED and really feeling sick by the time I had to go to bed. My body used to be able to eat all that stuff, but now... it just isn't the same. But I must get that potato skin recipe.

Short answer: Everything

Long answer: RWBY, all the podcasts (RT podcast & Off Topic i just started with them at 400 & 52), Red vs Blue, Eleven Little Roosters. These are just the big ones i want to catch up to. I listen to the Podcast when i am working nightshifts (so i can do through 3-4 episodes on a night).

Haha!

 

Yeah, my friend was HUGE into them since the beginning of RvB (I have yet to see this series all the way through). I became a RT fan since episode 1 of RWBY. I freaking love that show. I recently discovered that Always Open and the RT podcast is a joy to listen to while working out/stretching and platinum-ing, so I've been listening to them recently. I'm up-to-date with Always Open, but only at episode 112 or something for RT. I mean I've listened to the recent ones, but I wanted to start at the beginning. 

 

I know you're behind, but do you try to play the game of ELR? That's my favorite part of the show! Haha.

 

How did you discover them?

I believe it was back in 2010 (could be earlier, i dont remember). They made some sort of trailer for Halo Reach, which i enjoyed. So i looked further and found the site, podcasts & other shows. I found out about Achievement Hunter and with that their Minecraft lets plays. And from there on i kept watching their content. I watched the Extra-Life streams of 2014 & 2015. And somewere in 2016 i stopped watching and near the end of 2016 i got hooked again. 

 

I saw ten little roosters, need tostart Eleven Little Roosters. This week is a catch-up week for me for all the anime shows i am behind on. I need to schedule Eleven Little Roosters in my weekly planning

Today - February 8th 2017 (20 days until Horizon Zero Dawn!)

 

Zarya / Strength and Power - Started the day with a nice walk to the mail box, which served as a great warm up. Did my Bodyweight routine and updated my progressDefinitely need to do some adjustments but I think I'm really going to like this system. The only thing is vertical pull ups... I don't have stairs like in his pictures. But I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. Overall, my arms are worn and I feel great! I also did a body fat measurement as it's the beginning of the new challenge (21.3% body fat). Took pics too. Don't see a lot of difference between now and last month, but I did a pretty lack workout routine last time. (5 points)

Widowmaker / Flexibility and Confidence - After I was warmed up from my workout, I cooled down with some stretching. Took pics of my splits to see the process I make each month. (5 points)

Ana / Career and Perseverance - There was one posting for a video game and BOY does this video game seem cool. I auditioned for it almost immediately. I really hope/pray I get it because it seems to fit me perfectly. But we shall see. If I don't get it, it will not be the end of the world. I recognize that I am not the only voice actress out there. Haha! But still. ;o) (1 point)

Mercy / Nutrition and Body Image - My breakfast was a banana and coffee, lunch had lots of lettuce, and tonight was a new recipe (Chicken and Veggie Bake). I was really nervous because I kinda went off the receipt a bit, but it turned out pretty good. (3 points)

D.Va / Gaming and Fun - Played a lot today because, frankly, I'm kinda over this game and it's old controls/mechanics. I would like to have the platinum and be done with it. As much as I adore playing X-men characters, I forget how long and tedious these LEGO games can get. I'm almost done and then some serious gaming on Fallout 4 will come into play. So excited to get back into this series. I wanna know what happens! (1 point)

Mei / Reading and Relaxation - I am actually going to read right after this post... so... yeah. Haha! (I'm reading right now%)

 

Daily Total:

D.Va = 2/2 | Zarya = 5/5 | Mercy = 6/4 | Mei = 49% | Ana = 2/2 | Widowmaker = 10/10

 

  LEGO Marvel Super Heroes = 53%

  Fallout 4 = 0%

  Eleven Little Roosters - Alternative Reality Game

   Reveal hidden contents

 

Lúcio / Positivity - Very excited to get a real workout routine in session. One that will be tough but I can see the numbered progress. (I'm a visual/literal mind, so I need something like this to improve). I'm proud to have auditioned for that game. :o) I will work on my scholarship project whenever there aren't auditions I'm crazy about. Because I can totally do this!

Thanks ya'll. :o) Mostly likely, I won't get the job, but I feel like I did a great audition. So, if I don't get it, it won't be because I didn't try or put my best foot forward. -^_^-
