  1. Ok so it's the end of my first 3 weeks, time to add up points and reset goals for the next 3 weeks! I will add all my points up at the end of the full 6 weeks though. I'm still feeling pretty drained emotionally but I'm hoping getting back into routine now term has started again will help me keep on track with my goals. Start weight: 144.8lbs End weight: 143lbs Down 1.8lbs, yay! Hope to get to 141.5 by the end of the next 3 weeks. Goal 1: Diet Overall score: 17/21 - B - +0.8 CON +0.8CHA Had a pretty bad day for food yesterday but I did okay overall and scored a B. It's still hard for
  2. Update: Panic over, the fluctuation has disappeared, phew! Goal 1: Diet Went over again yesterday. :-/ Had a bit of a terrible day emotionally dealing with medical issues of a loved one so I ended up going over from eating a sticky bun and too much toast. Fortunately everything is much more stable today so I'm back on track! 16/19 Goal 2: Running Was feeling way too emotional to even contemplate my 7.2km run yesterday and decided to go for a walk with my garmin instead. Ended up walking 7.2km which although isn't quite the same, I'm still giving myself credit for it considering all I w
  3. You're doing a great job with your SH challenge, especially with the twice a day workouts! I don't have much advice on macros I'm afraid, my method is more about getting in enough protein and then the rest just being whatever I fancy. I think though that the key for a lot of these diets is the protein intake, so as long as that is up there then adjust your carb/fat ratio to whatever you feel best with. For the running cramps, I was having a similar problem a week or two ago with getting them about 1-2 miles in and realised it was because I had let myself get dehydrated. Drinking a glass of wat
  4. Week 2 start weight: 142.4lbs Week 3 start weight: 145lbs Goal 1: Diet Had a couple of bad days where I went about 500 over maintenance calories, I think the change in exercise routine maybe made me crave a bit more, I'm not sure. According to my logs, I had 5/7 good days. However, according to the scale, I've gone up three damn pounds. That's higher than when I started, within the space of a few days, it's not going down and it's not that time of the month either. At this point I'm just hoping that it's water weight from where I have started up lifting again, but it's pretty damn discoura
  5. Update so far this week: Goal 1: Diet Doing well again this week, I'm losing weight way quicker than when I was at home now as I can accurately calculate the calories in all my meals. Might even hit under 140 by the start of term in a week and a bit (here's hoping!). Down to 141.6 as of this morning, whoot! 4/4 Goal 2: Running Added an extra 1km fast run today to make up for missing a run last week, so I'm ahead on my running goal for the week so far. I went to the gym again today too. Lifted and then went for a 20 minute swim. 3/2 Goal 3: The little things This goal has definitely
  6. Hi and welcome to the forums! Another university 3rd year video game nerd checking in here. If you want to put on weight, be sure you are eating enough - find some calorie dense high protein snacks if you find it hard to eat enough, I think peanut and nut spreads are quite a popular option. Also, I find joining in the 6 week challenges help to keep me accountable and have a measurable way to track my goals, you could still join in with this one if you wanted as it's only a week in. It definitely appeals to the RPG player within me! What sort of video games do you enjoy? At the moment I've jus
  7. Good job on week 1! Even though you weren't completely paleo, at least it was only some dark chocolate blueberries and not a massive slice of cake or anything. Congrats on dropping a pound too, it's always a great feeling to see results on the scale.
  8. Apologies for the lack of updates, I got Mass Effect 1 and 2 and was playing them for the first time, so I haven't really been thinking about updating! Week 1 start weight: 144.8lbs Week 2 start weight: 142.4lbs Goal 1: Diet Managed to stick to my calories every day so far, this is probably the longest streak of consistency I've had in terms of not going over even 100 calories. What's more I've had a bit of a "whoosh" this week and lost 2.4lbs, which feels great as it's the lightest I've been in ages! Goal 2: Running Skipped a couple of days so far, so only 4/6 possible runs complet
  9. Wow sounds really like a fun way to work toward your goals, haven't heard of the superhero challenge before! Love your 10 minutes a day goal too, it always feels like you've achieved something that way, even if it's just a little. For me at least, it makes it much easier to stick with diet goals too, you almost don't want to "spoil" the activity you've done!
  10. Phase 1 Week 1 Monday Within my calorie limit for today and completed my flossing. Monday would usually be a run day but I'm going to be doing it tomorrow as I had a workshop today and had to be on a train to London at 6:15am, not getting home until 7pm, so doing it tomorrow will just be much more pleasant!
  11. I'm ready to go for the next challenge after a semi successful last challenge! It's going to be a bit of an odd challenge in that university starts halfway through, so I think I will be having one set of goals for the first three weeks and then another set for the final three, with points split evenly over both halves. My second set of goals will be decided after the first three weeks so I can evaluate how everything is going. Start Weight: 144.8lbs Height: 5'2" Goal 1: Diet Same as last challenge I'm going to be sticking to 1600kcals a day. I have a basic yet flexible meal plan that sho
  12. Great job this challenge, 35 minutes is definitely not bad at all, I'm sure you will have no trouble with beating your sister in November. Congrats on the weight loss too, 7lbs in 6 weeks is no small amount!
  13. Haven't got my final weigh in yet but I think overall I have lost a pound or two over this challenge, which I'm pleased with as it was summer holidays and usually I put on weight over this part of summer. I've just moved back into my own house this weekend so now I have the groundwork of good habits and exercise I am definitely aiming to lose more next challenge! Goal 1: Running I ran 18 times this challenge, an average of 3 a week, scoring a B. I didn't run a couple of days this week due to feeling a bit drained from moving and on our week long holiday week, but apart from that it was pre

  15. You still have 2 weeks to go so don't worry about not meeting your goals just yet! Even if you don't hit them by the end of the challenge, you've definitely been putting the effort in so you should still be pleased with what you have achieved!
