#100k Challenge – Weekly Update (19/02/18)

Maybe I need to add an avatar….?????

Happy Monday everyone, hope everyone is well and thank you for being here. It’s time again for me to give an update on my #100kChallenge (If you are new here you can see what its about here).

Over the last week I have managed to spend a decent amount of time on my Xbox – half term last week and I somehow managed to get rid of the kids for the whole week.

This meant that the first half of the week was spent with my wife – Valentines included, but more on that later – and Thursday through to Sunday I was left on my own (wife working), achievement time!

Now I briefly mentioned Valentines and I will be the first to admit that I am not the most romantic of guys, having said that this year I decided to splash out and do something out of character to surprise my wife. This would be a great way to start a story I suppose, a grumpy man stuck in his ways has a sudden change of heart to impress the love of his life.

I can 100% confirm that this year though I did exactly the same as every year for Valentines day – Nothing! Not that I am heartless mind…it is my opinion that Valentines is simply a day to spend money (or make it depending on your business) and I don’t need a certain day to tell my wife I love her. I can and do tell her everyday. We did though have a nice Chinese takeaway on the evening when she got back from yoga.

Moving onto food, it is all my wife and I seem to do when we have time together. We managed last week to eat everywhere except our own home – while the kids are away I guess we had more opportunity to just go out.

I was also introduced to this beautiful creation and OMG one of the greatest things I have ever eaten.

Lastly before I crack on with the details of the update I wanted to give a shout out to my wife. She runs her own business as a Nail & Beauty technician and this week she found out that she is a finalist for a English Hair & Beauty Awards 2018 in two categories. To say I am proud is an understatement. Check out her Instagram here

Thanks for reading guys enjoy the update.

Quick Overview

Last week gamerscore: 23,975

Total gamerscore: 27,910

Since the last update – An increase of 3,935

Money spent since last update: £1.20

Total February spend: £24.77

Total Yearly spend: £48.38

Decent enough week, I am happy with it anyway. Almost 4,000 points mainly unlocked since Thursday. Well over my first target over 9,000 every month (wanted 18,000 originally after 2 months) in fact I am actually over my March target already.

Points gained – but from where?

Since the last update my points have come from:

Gears of War 4: +75
The Walking Dead – Season Two: +1000
The Wolf Among Us: +1000
Letter Quest: +45
Refunct: +1000
Max The Curse of the Brotherhood: +815

Four completions over the past week. Max: The Curse of the Brotherhood, Refunct, and two excellent games from TellTale – The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead Season 2. Refunct was by far the easiest completion for time was although when I started to play it the quick movements and colour changing blocks made my stomach churn a little. I have had the same experience with VR headsets but it could’ve been far too much Lotus Biscuit spread I guess.

What I’ve been spending?

So far this month I have spent:

  • £7.99 was spent on Game Pass for this month
  • £1.59 spent on purchasing Cubot (Very easy game when using a guide)
  • £13.99 spent on Boomerang Rentals.
  • £1.20 spent on purchasing Refunct

Only spent money on buying Refunct last week, which honestly was not expected it just happened to be reduce in last weeks Xbox Sale. I have £1.62 left so I might get another cheap easy completion when tomorrows sale is active.

What next?

Check back tomorrow for my Top Picks from the Xbox Sale for quick/cheap gamerscore. If any one has any ideas/requests that they want me to talk about, maybe you would like me to review a game..?

I will be posting a review of Boomerang rentals once I have been using the service for around 6-8 weeks. This will give me a good insight into the service so I can let you guys know if its worth your time and money.

As always…..
