  1. Hi, I'm Troy McLure Dan Schmidt, you may remember me from writing such Nerd Fitness articles as 'A Nerd's Introduction to Mental Health', 'How to Build an Active, Outdoor Lifestyle With Your Kids' and 'How to fight the Tired Parent Syndrome'. But today I'm here to talk to you about my "first" 4 week challenge. (I actually started a challenge in 2014, but couldn't complete it because I had to leave my house due to bushfires I am weak). But I'm damn set on completing this one (it's winter time here in Australia, so the risk of fire is much less). We've just had our third child in May, and since then I've noticed I've slacked a bit with my exercise and I'm not in as great shape as I was when she was born. This tends to happen with the continual waking throughout the night, having no time to cook dinner or make lunch for the next day and being a miserable Australian winter (which really isn't that bad). I spend a lot of time telling how to keep other rebel parents fit and active, so I better put my words into action myself. MAIN QUEST: To lose weight (3kg) I really don't want to be a fat dad, I was about 8 kilos heavier than I am now when my first child was born, and I don't want to get back to that. I'm not in terrible shape at the moment (I'm in what the BMI classifies as a 'healthy' weight, but I'm at the upper end of 'healthy'), but it's best to get on top of these things before it gets too big. My goal weight is 74kg. I figure if I can lose a few kilos this winter, summer will be a whole lot more fun with the kids on the beach. Goals for this challenge: Physical quests: Weights/Bodyweight exercises 3 times a week (my new workplace has a free gym which I have yet to use) Run 2 times a week (5km+) (Pokemon GO will surely help with this, Team Valor FTW) Diet quest: No more eating in bed. (I'm terrible for late night snacking when I'm doing midnight feeds with the baby) Drink more water at work (at least 1.5 Litres per day) Level up my life quests: Limit (non-work and non-NF) social media to an hour a day. Spend one-on-one 'special' time with each child at least once a week. Let's start simple and see how we go. Feel free to check in and say G'day any time fellow Rebels. Dan
