  6. A Tolkien based challenge you say. I'm completely down for this. I know I'm a little late but in the words of Gandalf. “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.†Wait For Me!!!
  7. Main Quest Fit into size 46 pants before the end of 2014. As I'm currently at at a 50 waist for most pants so 4 inches in 3 months would be great. Supporting Quests 1) Slow and Steady (STA +3, WIS +1, DEX +1) - Walk 12 miles a week. 2) Hydrate! (WIS +4, STA +1) - Drink a lot more water. I'm running dehydrated all the time. 3) Make it a Habit (WIS +2, STA +1, STR +2) - Get going back to they gym for Strength training 2 Motivation I've reached a point where I am disgusted with myself for being so badly out of shape. Add to that the fact that I hit 30 last year and began to really feel it physically in how much I could do and how fast I recover. It's a new year and I think it's time for a new me. Life Quest Rested and Ready - Get 6 hours of sleep per night (CON +1) Mini Quests None Yet Additional Background Back after a long and depressed break. I'm a Computer Programmer and avid gamer (If you play League of Legends my summoner name is Targilnar). These are not the best occupations to encourage being in shape.

  8. Figured I would go through and give the final results for anyone who was interested. I was just jotting stuff on a notepad for awhile there and found it while cleaning this weekend. Of all the quests I only completed Healthy Habits. The others are failures on a grand level with most not even reaching the half way point. On the good side half of Trim the Fat still means I lost 6 lbs and I'm ok with that. Total boos to stats the time around: WIS +1, STA +2, CHA +1, CON +2 Supporting Quests 1) Trim the Fat (STA +5) - Loose 12 lbs of fat 2) Muscle Bound (STR +4, STA +1) - Strength train 3x a week 3) Healthy Habits (WIS +1, STA +2, CHA +1) - Track a number of smaller habits for overall health Life Quest Rested and Ready - Get 7 hours of sleep per night (CON +1) Mini Quests The Dietician is Back! (Complete) - Drink only water (no other drinks at all) for 4 days. +1 CON The latest plot - Take appropriate rest days. Go to bed at a reasonable hour. No hitting the snooze button. Do one of those 4 days this week. +1 CON Current Stats (taken 04/05/2014) 30 year old Male 299.8 lbs to 294.0 lbs (about half my goal) Neck 17" to 16.25" Waist 53.5" to 52.5" Hip 53" to 52"
  9. Wow 7 period costumes is a lot to get together even if they are already made. Have your kids attended an SCA event before and if so how did they handle it?

I have worked out what is injuring my left knee due to trial and pain. Specifically it is getting out of my car too quickly. I have a corolla and it is low to the ground for me so its a one leg squat every time I get out and if the knee is pointed an odd direction there is a spike of pain.

  11. Food Total - 2407 calories Lunch 1022 Dinner 955 Snack 430 Went to the gym but my workout was very disappointing. My knees are starting to hurt whenever I bend them beyond a certain point. I could work through the pain but that seems like a good way to cause a more permanent injury. So no squats, incline sled, etc until I figure out whats going on. Deadlifts are ok though! 4/2/2014 - Week 6, Day 3 Week Overall Quest Total Max Total Max Trim the Fat -3 50 102.6 300 Muscle Bound 20 50 110 300 Healthy Habits 17 49 203 294 Rested and Ready 0.5 7 21.5 42
  12. Hey just catching up with your progress after my extended absence. And wow you really do have beastmode engaged don't you. The carnitas recipe was a big hit by the way.
  13. So I'm not actually dead but I did drop the ball on this challenge pretty badly. Work picked up to the point where I couldn't do more than check my personal email and when I'm in work mode I don't want to do anything else. Catching back up again because I still have a shot at getting some the goals. I will do a final weigh in and measurement at the end of week 6 anyway just to see. @LoD - The carnitas recipe was great and worked really well for me not getting random food. 3/21/2014 - Week 4, Day 5 Week Overall Quest Total Max Total Max Trim the Fat 2 50 110.6 300 Muscle Bound 20 50 100 300 Healthy Habits 29 49 132 294 Rested and Ready 3.5 7 16.0 42 3/22/2014 - Week 4, Day 6 Week Overall Quest Total Max Total Max Trim the Fat 2 50 110.6 300 Muscle Bound 20 50 100 300 Healthy Habits 35 49 138 294 Rested and Ready 4.0 7 16.5 42 3/23/2014 - Week 4, Day 7 Week Overall Quest Total Max Total Max Trim the Fat 2 50 110.6 300 Muscle Bound 20 50 100 300 Healthy Habits 42 49 145 294 Rested and Ready 5.0 7 17.5 42 3/24/2014 - Week 5, Day 1 Week Overall Quest Total Max Total Max Trim the Fat 0 50 110.6 300 Muscle Bound 0 50 100 300 Healthy Habits 6 49 151 294 Rested and Ready 0.5 7 18.0 42 3/25/2014 - Week 5, Day 2 Week Overall Quest Total Max Total Max Trim the Fat 0 50 110.6 300 Muscle Bound 0 50 100 300 Healthy Habits 12 49 157 294 Rested and Ready 0.5 7 18.0 42 3/26/2014 - Week 5, Day 3 Week Overall Quest Total Max Total Max Trim the Fat 0 50 110.6 300 Muscle Bound 10 50 110 300 Healthy Habits 17 49 162 294 Rested and Ready 1.0 7 18.5 42 3/27/2014 - Week 5, Day 4 Week Overall Quest Total Max Total Max Trim the Fat 0 50 110.6 300 Muscle Bound 10 50 110 300 Healthy Habits 24 49 169 294 Rested and Ready 1.5 7 19.0 42 3/28/2014 - Week 5, Day 5 Week Overall Quest Total Max Total Max Trim the Fat -5 50 105.6 300 Muscle Bound 20 50 110 300 Healthy Habits 30 49 175 294 Rested and Ready 2.0 7 19.0 42 3/29/2014 - Week 5, Day 6 Week Overall Quest Total Max Total Max Trim the Fat -5 50 105.6 300 Muscle Bound 20 50 110 300 Healthy Habits 35 49 180 294 Rested and Ready 3.0 7 20.0 42 3/30/2014 - Week 5, Day 7 Week Overall Quest Total Max Total Max Trim the Fat -5 50 105.6 300 Muscle Bound 20 50 110 300 Healthy Habits 41 49 186 294 Rested and Ready 4.0 7 21.0 42 3/31/2014 - Week 6, Day 1 Week Overall Quest Total Max Total Max Trim the Fat 0 50 105.6 300 Muscle Bound 10 50 110 300 Healthy Habits 5 49 191 294 Rested and Ready 0.0 7 21.0 42 4/1/2014 - Week 6, Day 2 Week Overall Quest Total Max Total Max Trim the Fat -5 50 100.6 300 Muscle Bound 10 50 110 300 Healthy Habits 11 49 197 294 Rested and Ready 0.0 7 21.0 42
  14. Looks like its Battleship the movie. I may walk around the park instead since that movie has zero appeal to me.
  15. I'm trying the movie room at the local golds gym this weekend. Hopefully I can get in a 1.5hr plus walk without issue.
  16. 3/20/2014 - Week 4, Day 4 Ate 2,589 calories. Weight on the scale is looking good, so I'm excited for sunday. Week Overall Quest Total Max Total Max Trim the Fat 2 50 110.6 300 Muscle Bound 20 50 100 300 Healthy Habits 23 49 126 294 Rested and Ready 3.0 7 15.5 42 I like the idea of mass protein cooked on Sunday. My roommate and I burn though leftovers like you would not believe so it will have to be cooking in major bulk. Carnitas actually sounds delicious so that will have to go on the list.
  17. 2. Sounds like you might get a kick out of pell training if you like the hammer. 3. I have a similar thing going right now. But mine is more of a "gotta save money somewhere" and fast food seems to be the best choice to cut.
  18. Your gaining 12.5 lbs of lift weight per month. So that is roughly 3 lbs per week. That is a really fast improvement, I wouldn't be at all discouraged by that.
  19. That's some serious improvement in the stiffleg deadlift from when you started.
  20. So my overall goal was to fit in pants I can buy at a regular department store, thus being in at least decent shape if nothing else. The house goal is actually in support of that since the sheer number of unfinished projects causes me extra stress. It's always in the back of my mind that I have X left to do in the basement or on the roof, etc. That impacts my sleep, my desire to workout, and when I hit a certain threshold of stress I tend to start eating to deal with it.
  21. I would probably really enjoy paleo but it requires a good bit of effort to make sure you have the food on hand or planned. I just haven't spent the time to make it work for me. Maybe that will be on my next challenge. Possible Goals for next challenge. Suggestions or comments welcome. Fuel the Fire - Eat modified paelo diet at least 50% of my meals Unleash the Beast - Get bench press to 225 lbs for a single rep Time is Money Friend - Get particular projects around the house finished Living the Life - Combo healthy habits and sleep thing (minor points)
  22. 3/19/2014 - Week 4, Day 3 Ate 2,430 calories. Did have fast food so -5 points for me. Not bothered by the calorie overage at all due to a really good workout before dinner. I think part of my slump has been just not getting enough exercise since I felt way better after the gym than I had for the previous couple days. So glad I can lift weights again, even if it is limited to upper body.
