  16. Hi everyone. I've put my name down on sheet 2 and I'm looking forward to this Currently reading Mission One now.
  17. Introduction Hello everyone. Looking into restarting my fitness routine/habit after a year or so of neglecting my diet and exercise. Cut a long story short, I lost a lot of weight between 2009 and 2012 (Highest was 120KG and I went down to 85KG) and since then I feel like I haven't been putting much effort into gaining muscle, getting frequent exercise and carefully maintaining my food intake. Worst of all, I'm concerned that I might eventually gain the weight I initially lost. I have been playing baseball during the spring and summer and now that the season is over I feel it's the perfect oppurtunity to start something new. I am already consuming a - near enough - paleo diet but I still feel like I could do more. Therefore, I have decided to take on a six week challenge (as recommended by laurabzz) and get myself back into the good habit of taking better care myself health-wise and seeing if I can look and feel better during that period Main Mission To maintain weight by decreasing body fat percentage (particularly belly fat) and replacing it with muscle. The Objectives x3 a week - Nerd Fitness beginners workout x3 a week - 2 mile walk whether it's sunny/rainy/snowy Zero sugar intake during the challenge with the exception of only consuming 6 sugar foods during the entire challenge. Side Mission I've always wanted to take up android mobile development and FutureLearn.com has a 7 Week beginners course consisting of weekly tutorials and exercise. My side mission would be to complete all these exercises during the Nerd Fitness challenge. Motivation There are many personal reasons as to why I'm doing this but the most important one is to be able to not only be healthy, look good and live longer but to also have a capably functional body to live life to the fullest. Lets Do This!
