Guess I’ll jump back into the Later Levels question of the month game! To be honest, I’ve been pretty meh about the whole writing/blogging thing lately (again… same old story). BUT community events like this always inspire me to put words together. Here’s my answer to this month’s question asked by Kevin over at The Mental Attic.
You ate everything during Christmas so now have to diet and work it all off; which video game character do you recruit as your personal trainer to get you back into shape?
I’m going to think way outside the box here and go with a completely unpredictable answer…
Nah, I’m going to be shockingly obvious and say Lightning Farron from the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy! Surprised? Didn’t think so.
Let’s see. Lightning is a former Guardian Corps Sgt so she would definitely have experience with training people. Despite her tough appearance, she does actually care about the people in her life and wants them to be better. However, the biggest reason why I’m choosing Lightning is because she already IS my personal trainer.
No joke. When I first played FFXIII I was really really miserable, suffering from panic attacks, overeating a lot, and completely out of shape. While playing the FFXIII games, I wanted to become strong like Lightning so I started working out again and eating healthy. As a result of Lightning’s inspiration, I lost 30 lbs in a year and have kept it off ever since. If I’m feeling lazy or in danger of falling back into old habits, she still inspires me to keep going. No matter what.
Wannabe Writer’s Notes:
– Yes, two posts about Lightning in a row happened. This is LightningEllen’s Release at lightningellen.com so no apologies here.
– Dragon Age related ramblings will resume in the future, probably. I’ve also been nominated for tons of Blogger Awards (thank you everyone!). I might work on a few of those soon-ish.
– OR I’ll continue to ignore my blog and just keep playing Dragon Age Inquisition. Life’s short so do what you feel like, as they say 😀
