QengpuBenal Progresses Forward


Recommended Posts

The healer brushed aside the flap of QengpuBenal's tent and stepped inside. Frowning, she looked over QengpuBenal who was all decked out in running gear. The healer stepped in front of the wounded scout, "Exactly what is it you think you are doing?"

 

QengpuBenal looked up, "Heading out for a run, of course. I need to get back into training. My House needs me."

 

Sighing, the healer shook his head, "If you start running right now, you are going to do far more harm than good. You'll end up setting your recovery back months!"

 

Growling in frustration, QengpuBenal replied, "I can't just sit around doing nothing! This walking to the end of the block and back is driving me crazy! I need to run!"

 

The healer nodded, "I understand how you must be feeling. Let's sit down and we can work on a plan to get you ready to start running again."

 

QengpuBenal flopped into a nearby chair, "Fine."

0 Week: Day 1

 

I walked around the block. 

I drank 4 bottles of water.

I did my writing, which was a huge win since I had to go back and search for information in previous chapters in order to continue my work.

I ate some candy. However, I am counting this as a win for two reasons: 1) it was chocolate and I was having a weird, crying breakdown (no clue why, it was literally over nothing...I bumped my lip with a wine bottle), and 2) I gave well over half of it to my wife instead of eating it all like I usually would have.

PS, I think your reward system is super smart and will likely adopt something similar, so thanks!

Thanks! It helps that I get paid once a month, so I can just buy all my loot on payday!

Drank 3 water bottles.

0 Week: Day 3

 

Walked around the block.

Drank 3 water bottles.

Ate candy and fudge pops.

Worked on my writing.

 

I need to revamp one of my goals. I am finding that "no candy or desserts" is too nebulous. I can easily justify eating things that would be typically classified as dessert by saying that I didn't actually eat them as the dessert portion of the meal. So, I am changing this goal to "no candy or donuts." Specifics are much harder to justify!

 

Although I will not have met all of my 0 Week goals, I am giving myself another chance. I learned from this failure and adjusted a goal. This is positive, and really what I believe that 0 Week is for. So, I can still earn my loot, which will help with motivation for the remainder of the week.

Day Three

 

Walked around the block.

Drank 3 bottles of water.

Ate some licorice. Fire alarms had me standing outside for a while. When I got back to my office I was too shaky to drive, so I had some licorice to get me home.

   Note to Self: Snacks for work are a must!

Worked on my writing.

Day Nine

 

Walked almost 2 miles.

Ate no candy or donuts.

Drank 3 bottles of water.

Worked on my writing. (I didn't make my word count, but I'm counting it because I wrote a little bit, and I spent a ton of time today slogging through schoolwork with my daughter.)

Work went well today. My allergies are kicking my butt at the moment, and my meds are not helping at all! I watched an episode of Doctor Who. I'm still not a huge Capaldi fan, but I'm really liking this new companion!

Walked a mile.

Ate no candy or donuts.

Drank 3 bottles of water.

Worked on my writing.

Day Eleven

Yesterday did not go so well. I ended up going to the ER halfway through the workday. It turned out to be a migraine, but it was throwing up some very stroke-like symptoms. On the doctor's orders, I basically slept the rest of the day. The end result:

 

No Walk

Drank Only One Bottle of Water

No Writing

Didn't Eat Any Candy/Donuts

 

Day Twelve

Today went much better. I woke up feeling fine, so I went in to work. Had a nice day at work. Then came home and was very productive in terms of laundry and housework.

 

Walked 1 Mile

Drank 3 Bottles of Water

Did Writing (I'm almost done with the first draft of the novel I'm working on!)

Didn't Eat Any Candy/Donuts (even though there were a ton of donuts in the staff room at work!)

Day Thirteen

 

I walked to work today. It was a mile and a half, so I counted that as my daily walk.

I ate no candy or donuts, and stopped myself from buying donuts at the grocery store.

I drank 3 bottles of water.

I worked on my writing...and finished the first draft of my novel!

 

I have modified my writing goal from a daily work count to a daily editing goal! Woohoo!
