  1. FINAL RESULTS! Learn to do double unders: My max has been 12, but I also did 2 sets of 10 in a row so a win for me Gain EXP: +580. Exceeded my target Eat less sugar: Week 1: 21103302212041000013222012. It's been interesting, I feel like I could have done better though and I'll probably carry on tracking for a bit. Read: I've read on 21 days. Success 258720 this month vs 258231. Ooh... a close one. But I'm really happy because I to manage it despite only just realising today's the last day instead of the end of the month! I'm ready for a new challenge so I need to pick so
  2. The double unders plateau has ended! I was experimenting and altered my grip on the rope handles (tighter and closer to the rope) and did 11 in a row. Then to make sure it wasn't a fluke I did 8 and then another 10 Woohoo! I'm going to keep practicing to try & get to 15, maybe even 20. Also I've had no sugary things since Sunday. I'm reading a book of short stories called 'How they met' and I think my next book will be 'Thinking fast & slow'
  3. WEEK 1 Learn to do double unders: I've still not got any further. I'm getting quite frustrated! I've practiced 3x a week every week this year Week 3 Target: Get some help! Gain EXP: I've done 3 crossfit classes, 4 extra practices,1 yoga class at work & 1 at home . +150 EXP I've signed up for the Crossfit Open so I need to step up my game a bit! It starts in 12 days. I'm giving it a go even though I'm not going to do very well. I need to push myself a bit so I hope this will help. Also, maybe I shouldn't feel like this but I feel really awkward turning down a trip to the pub
  4. WEEK 1 Learn to do double unders: I've practiced twice before crossfit and I've managed 4 in a row again a couple of times. Still no further with this one, more practice on Monday! Week 2 Target: 6 in a row. Get 3-4 in a row more consistently. Gain EXP: I've done 3 crossfit classes, 3 extra practices,1 yoga class at work & 1 at home . +140 EXP Week 2 Target: I'd be happy to do the same again. Eat less sugar: Mon - 2 - a homemade chocolate truffle & some popcorn Tues - 1 - a seed bar Weds - 1 - a seed bar Thurs - 0 - nothing Fri - 4 - Defeat... I had a tiring mornin
  5. Hello fellow pokemon trainer! Sorry you've had some tough days. Some goals is better than no goals! I enjoyed reading the post you linked to, I needed that reminder too. Good luck!
  6. DAY 1-3 Learn to do double unders: I've practiced twice before crossfit and I've managed 4 in a row again a couple of times. Gain EXP: I've done 2 crossfit classes, 2 extra practices and 1 yoga class. +80EXP Eat less sugar: I've eaten 4 sugary things in 3 days which is an improvement on before. I've bought a pack of seed bars with a fairly low sugar content (8.5g) to have at work. Read: I've read on 2/3 days. I've walked over 10,000 steps every day
  7. I accidentally posted twice because I got a page offline message the first time and thought it hadn't worked. Can someone delete one for me?
  8. A month has passed and I'm going back to the beginning. I feel like I need another go at most of my previous challenge. 1) Charmander - Learn a new move!Obviously prefers hot places. When it rains, steam is said to spout from the tip of its tail.Charmander starts off with only Scratch and Growl. Even a levelled up Charmander isn't any good without learning some new moves! This month I'm learning double unders. I began the last challenge somewhere under level 1. I made it to level 3 in January but it felt like a fluke! Level 1: Get 10 in a 1-1-2-1-1-2 formatLevel 2: Get 2 in

  10. I've had a bad second week Once again work has completely derailed my plans. I went to the gym once at 6am on Monday. I worked until after 11pm twice and the only food available was crap... biscuits, chocolate, pizza. I didn't even have time to get a slightly less unhealthy cereal bar / pot of nuts out of my bag. Anyway, enough complaining.... I will do better next week! One practice. One gym session, some extra practice. +30 EXP I lost track. I ate a lot of sugar when stressed/tired. I'm pretty good at avoiding sugar before lunchtime now though. Good, actually - No time to buy anyt
  11. DAY 4-6 Practiced again on day 6 but no improvement. I tried after crossfit but I was too tired and my co-ordination was terrible so I gave up fairly quickly. Day 4: Another Rest day Day 5: +30 for yoga, +10 for kettlebell squats & plank. Day 6:+20 for Crossfit, +10 for some extra toes to bar / double under practice. Day 4: YYNYN Day 5:YYNYY Day 6:YYYY Some more stuff I ordered last year arrived so I logged it. I also opened a savings account with 6% interest and set up a transfer of £250 per month. Meowth needs to find more things to do! I've been exceeding my step
  12. DAY 2-3 Day 3: I've got to 8 double unders in a row doing 1-1-2-1-1-2 and also did 3 in a row doing 2-2-2, yay Day 2: Rest Day. Day 3: Magikarp gained +50 EXP from going to crossfit, yoga class , and starting 10 mins early at the gym with some skipping / pull ups. Day 2: Level 4 I just had a homemade rhubarb compote with yoghurt for breakfast so I'm pretty happy with that! - NYYYY Day 3: Level 2 Ate a cereal bar & some chocolate between 10am-1pm. - YNNYY Haven't bought anything so nothing to log! I walked over 10,000 steps both days I've set up a fitbit challe
  13. Thanks for the encouragement! DAY 1 I'm still on 7 double unders in a row. I didn't practice today. Magikarp gained +20 EXP from going to Crossfit. Level 2: Dragonair was evaded between 5pm & dinner. I had a small glass of red wine with dinner and some leftover christmas cake later. Will try to cut out at least one of those things tomorrow! - NYYNN Money spent logged. A pair of half price jeans that I ordered last year that just arrived and a kindle book. The book is 'Quiet' and I'd been meaning to check it out. I walked over 10,000 steps! I need to average ov
  14. I did my first challenge last year and now I'm back after a long break! Last time I learnt to do a pull up and successfully exercised 5x per week but I struggled towards the end. I'm hoping 4 weeks suits me better and I'm returning with a Pokemon themed challenge. I got Pokemon Red and a Gameboy Color for Christmas when I was about 9 and I was obsessed. I've played newer games but Red still has a place in my heart! Most of my exercise is Crossfit. This year I want to learn new skills (double unders, muscle ups) and get stronger - I want to increase amount I can deadlift and squat. I'm
  15. Week 6 1) Workouts 4/5. 3 crossfits & a walk 2) food tracking 6/7 3) Pull ups 2.5 from hanging Side) +23 Mostly from week 5 but I forgot in my last post! I had a bit of a wardrobe sort. FINAL UPDATE! WORKOUTS: 30/30! A+ I'm very proud of myself! I've had a really busy stressful time recently so I'm really glad I've still managed to do this quest. Normally my reaction to being stressed and tired would be to give up everything but I didn't, not even when the easy option (lunchtime yoga class in the building I work in) was taken away I feel like it'll be much easier to keep up ex
