When’s the last time you looked at your life and said there was nothing that you’d change? Probably been a while right? Or does it sound like: I’ll start it this upcoming Monday, or tomorrow. But then it never does? Take the chance now to turn away the extra donut, or super sized fry.
This is where it starts to get, nerdy. I recently joined the site, nerdfitness.com. For myself, I fit right in. Obviously I’m a nerd/dork/geek so it only made sense to see what the site is all about! There is a 6 week challenge that they do several times a year. One just happened to start on this past Monday, June 9th. Within this challenge, they ask you to make quests to follow. You can see below the quests I have chosen.
Wish me luck!
Main Quest: Lose (35+lbs) by New Years 2015.
If I can drop the 35+lbs by the new year, I will not only have just turned 30, but I’ll have the feeling that I’m 20 again. My confidence level will reach new levels that I haven’t seen in a decade.
Quest 1: Hit the Gym 3 times a week
The gym has been my friend since high school. It’s there when I need it, and there when I don’t go to taunt me about not going. If I go 3 times a week minimum, I’m pretty sure I can smile and feel better.
Quest 2: Run three times a week
I’ve always tried to run. I’ve accomplished mud runs, and a 10 mile race. But, I work up to those. I want this quest to be about making running a hobby and habit. To the point of I feel broke if I don’t accomplish this habit.
Quest 3: What’s fast or processed food?
Fast food and processed food are a weakness. When I’m stressed, I go to food. Not alcohol or drugs thankfully, but food. The convienence of these foods are my downfall. I want these two types of food to be erased from my vocabulary and be written as myths that do not exist.
Side Quest 1: Ride my bike to work instead of driving.
I currently live 15.3 miles from my job. Not too far, but the path to get there is not easy. I’m moving in a week or two closer to work. 6.8 miles from work. With that, I will ride my bike to work. Save gas, and burn some calories.
Side Quest 2: Acquire a following on Twitter/Instagram of my water/diet/progress.
If I can get 5 people to follow me specifically for being healthy, and bettering themselves, I will have completed this quest.
Motivation: Friends, Family, The girl. I’ve had a lot of friends follow my progress of working out, running, trends that I’ve taken on. I want to encourage everyone to not only follow what I do, but to see them commit to it and be healthy themselves.
Life Quest: Finish my story and create the website to go with it.
I’m currently in the process of writing a screenplay with a friend of mine. I’ve never taken on something like this before, so I want to finish in the next few months with the 6 episodes.
