    That's usually the way I am. Just stay inside and drink cocoa. Luckily this year I was smart and bought a couple of pairs of micrfleece long underwear. They're amazing! I just throw em on under jeans and I'm good to go. It's funny cuz people from the warmer states tend to not really have an idea what it's like to have it be literally deathly freezing cold. Just last week we had -20 degrees and then a few days before we got 24 inches of snow and 30mph winds with 45mph gusts. It's like an adventure every time u go outside. it's as if we live in the wild. Lol. We've had people ask us if we even

    Wow. I'm really bad at updating this. It's prolly cuz my only source of Internet right now is whatever I can steal from my neighbor with my iPhone and he tends to turn the wifi off all the time. Here's my final Challenge update: Starting weight: 232.5 lbs 23.3% bf Ending weight: 224 lbs 17% bf Goals: 1: lose 16 lbs or about 7-9%bf. A- Lost about 6.3% bf but only about 8.5 lbs. That's most likely an error or I was just retaining something, but I should have lost more than that. 2: Do 10 pullups. B+ Did 7 really good ones and then 3 more that weren't quite perfect. Felt really good. 3: get my

    Ive just realized that most everyone else's logs are waaay more organized than mine. gotta get better at this. I'm stealing mako's idea of using checks on the successful goals. :arrow: 1. Lost like a percentage of a pound...but this was weighing in right after thanksgiving and a carboload day. So most likely just off because of retention etc. I didn't gain any weight over the holiday and that's what's important. I also successfully conquered two weekend holiday partys without eating ANY sugar, wheat(I've been off wheat for 4 weeks now), or any other fattening unhealthy thing(minus some
  4. That video is awesome! Totally makes me want to go lift some weights

    Thanksgiving day: Got up at 10, Ate a light breakfast of eggs and fruit. For my workout I did a variation of tabata (only u do 3m on, 30sec break, 2m on, break, etc., until u get down to 30 sec on) with deadlift@135. Cranked out a set of pullups and then did the same tabata on my bike. Ended with more pullups. Felt like i was gonna die. Then had an amazing thanksgiving feast. I spaced everything out pretty well so I actually didn't eat too much but the sugar and coffee I did have made me feel sooooo nasty after a bit. Ugh. Like glue in my veins. My heartrate literally started going up jus

    Today: Ate great...although too few calories again. I'm excited for tomorrow. I usually let myself eat whatever on thanksgiving but keep it to small amounts. I have not had like any sugar in the last 3 weeks (except for natural stuff like honey, fruit,etc.). I'm wondering how my bodys gonna handle it. Once again...not enough sleep. :oops: got up on time... But didn't go to bed til 4am last night. I reeeeally gotta get on top of this. Need to do the business thing too. I've thought about it, but haven't done any real work. For my workout, I did my fallback on my recumbent bike for 30min aga

    24th: Once again got up at like 9:30-10, but didn't go to bed until like 4am. Ate perfect. Although, some days I definitely don't eat enough. Some days I don't even make it to 1500cals. It's not intentional it just happens occasionally. Did my 1 heavy lifting day just to maintain. 1x5 for my 5main compound lifts at close to 80%(bench 185, squat 230, pullups til failure, deadlift 230, clean and press 85). Threw in a few extra sets of pullups at the end too. I feel waaay less strong when I'm cutting. All of those weights would have been easy a few weeks ago but they actually wore me

    Well, finally posting. 23rd: ate ridiculously clean all day as usual. Did my fallback workout which is 30 min on my recumbent bike. L13 kept my rpm between 100-120. I'll usually rotate back to something like this every other day but upping the intensity or resistance to ensure that I'm moving forward. Also did 3 sets of pullups til failure. As far as sleeping goes, I got up at like 9:30 but didn't go to bed til like 3am. Soooo...I still gotta work on that.
  9. How could you tell? Whats even more geeky is that I first fell in love with it because of the Lego star wars sets. And wanting to be a Jedi is most likely what started me down the fitness path. WIN!
  10. Hey guys! Glad to be onboard! Thanks for having me.  I am so ready to kick some butt (mostly my own ). @ nightwatch Wow. We do have very similar goals and from what I can tell, pretty similar builds. Although I'm only 5'10" and I think your a few pounds ahead of me on ur lifts. Ur gonna have to harass me and make sure I post...cuz I tend to procrastinated a bit. @ everyone else I think having all of us do something outdoors is great. Unfortunately, I also live in the north and it's a pain trying to any of the normal workouts outside.  Just today we had freezing rain. :/ I do p

    Stats as of nov 15th: Weight 232.5 23.3% bf Stats as of today (nov 20th) Weight 227 21.2% bf Human going for a ranger. Goals: 1: lose 16 lbs or about 7-9%bf. This is a crazy goal but.... I've already lost 5.5 lbs this week (and another 3 the week before which doesn't count for this challenge) so I've only got another 10.5 to lose til the deadline.   I've been insanely cutting by doing a ton of hiit and Tabata as well as calorie counting and 7day low carb cycling. 2: Do 10 pullups. I'm at 5-6 right now. These really aren't my favorite but that's why I need to do them. 3: get my stupid body
  12. Wow I'm late on this. Can I still join or is the deadline past? If it's too late than I'll just wait til next month. I've technically already started cuz I've been cutting for the last two weeks already(and rocking it I might add ) so if I can still join I'll just add the week I've already completed.

    1rm woot

    New 1rm: Squat - 300lbs Deadlift - 300lbs Bench - 240lbs I haven't been on here much for most of the summer unfortunately. But I've been doing stronglifts most of the summer and also another routine that a bud of mine(who just happens to be a personal trainer) showed me. Thanks to this, I went from barely being able to squat/deadlift the bar... to doing 300 pounds in just a couple months!!! So, I haven't gone AWOL. I'm still rocking with powerlifting and I plan on spending the next 2-3 months cutting like a madman. So that should be fun.
  14. Thanks! I'll have to look into it. Hopefully my schedule will clear up so I can. I've barely even had time to get on here much less start a new project.
  15. 1. Bench and deadlift 190lb (5x5 bench and 1x5 deadlift) by the end of challenge. A Benching 150lb today. Missed mondays workout cuz I was out of town. Deadlifted 150lb on wednesday. I'm reeeally starting to love these. 2. Do backpacking training on my off days. F Psh. None. lol. But I have been swimming a ton. Like every day. I might just switch this goal to swimming all the time cuz that's what I've been doing anyways. 3. Get my act together (look for jobs, apply for jobs, get a job...all around just get a life ). A+ I've applied fer a few positions and I'm helping out at my bro's w
