Main Quest - Lose inches from my waist. I still need to take measurements and pics from after the last challenge. I can tell by pants and belt tests that I've lost some size. I've also dropped weight according to the scale. I'm going into this challenge around 310 lbs, and I think I can get to a milestone 299 by the end of this challenge. Specific Goals: Barbell training three times a week. (STR +4, STA +1) I will continue to do barbell training three times a week. I'll adjust the schedule as needed and may have to adapt to travel plans. This challenge I will also be looking into modifying the workouts or frequency. I saw some dramatic increases in my lifts last challenge, as I was just starting, but I did hit a small plateau at the end. I'd like to improve on my 5x5 sets from my last challenge, and may tie that into the grade, but for now just completing the workouts will be what I track. A - 18 workouts completed.â€‹ B - 16 workouts completed. C - 15 workouts completed. D - 14 workouts completed. F - 12 or less. Diet - track everything. (CON +3, CHA +1, WIS +1) â€‹I will continue to use MFP daily to track my food. I will continue to eat mainly Primal with low carb intake. I will put an emphasis on workout days - protein and calories minimums need to be met on days I work out. The rest of the time, getting within 15% or so should work (I may change this number after I do the math). I'm making this one a weekly goal and will average the six weeks together at the end. A -â€‹ 7 days a week tracked. B - 6 days a week tracked. C - 5 days a week tracked. D - 4 days a week tracked. F - 3 days a week tracked. Learn and Evaluate. (WIS+3) I know enough to be dangerous, but not enough to really know what I'm doing for many things. For this challenge, I'd like to learn more about strength training in general. This may include: Researching / starting a new program. Finding and reading a book on strength training. Signing up for a training session at a gym. Posting some form check videos. I'd also like to find my 1RM's, at least for Squats and DL's. I will continue to look into TDEE and what I'm eating. â€‹A -â€‹ Learn three new things. B - Learn two new things. C - Learn one new thing. F - Continue on in ignorance. Life Goal - (WIS +2): Learn more HTML. I've tinkered around with it in the past but I'm still pretty noob at it. I'll be using codeacademy primarily as Google suggested it. For grading, I'll do this at least once a week for an hour minimum. Alternately, I'll pay off the last $500 or so remaining on my Mastercard. We shall see. Motivation: I want to set a better example for my kids than I had growing up. I'm a fat guy from a fat family with fat habits. I want my kids to develop better habits than I had and to grow up healthy. It'd probably also be nice for my wife if I were healthier and better looking. Or at least not as fat. This is straight up copied from my last challenge, and it hasn't changed. I straight up copied it again for this third challenge, shockingly! General: (Edited to reflect start of this challenge).
