  1. Quest for the Dragon Balls Quest Start-Date : December 5, 2016 Phase I : Preparation for Long-term Journey I'm a super-duper newbie around here, so if I'm doing something wrong--let me know! Trying to get a feel for this setup. - - - I. Diet (Packing & Prepping for the Trip Ahead) Log foods, drinks, & other sources of calories everyday for the rest of the month. Cut daily sugar intake to <30g per day, to start. II. Fitness (Tinkering with the Radar) Light cardio 3x per week. III. LVLUP Life (Assisting in the Lab in the Meantime) Finish a book this month, because I don't read as much as I should. About Me Hay hay hay.~ Since this is my first challenge, I thought I'd formally say a thing or two about myself. I'm here to get my fitness thing started up again. Somewhere along the way, I lost all motivation & ended up in a bit of a spot. I miss how it feels to be in-shape! Being able to have stamina, endurance, & just feeling lighter. While many go to college & gain weight, I did the opposite--I lost weight! A lot of it. Coming back home, though, I'm back to the same old routine I had. My family doesn't care too much about how they eat, & because I didn't stay diligent enough, I'm back at square one. No worries, though! I know I can do it again. & this seems like a really fun way to do it! More about my hobbies~ You can tell I'm a nerd for DBZ. My journey from here on will be based on a long-term adventure to discover the dragon balls! I feel like that'll motivate me to take this in bits & pieces. Other things I like : kawaii culture, comics & manga, sketching, running my etsy shop, going to cons & cosplaying, gaming. So yeah! That's a little bit about me. n_n - - -
  2. Hey Everyone, I am back and I decided to make another 4WC after all. I have been watching Dragon Ball from the beginning and remembering why I loved that show so much. I have decided to use Goku as my motivation and embark on his Super Saiyan journey with him. So for the first part of my Super Saiyan adventure I am going to train under Master Roshi and get back a nice solid base of overall strength. So here we go Goal 1: Carry my Turtle Shell I am going to make another sandbag ruck that will weigh about 40-50lbs I want to go Rucking with it at least 2Xs a week Goal 2: Get strong and fight Gravity Later in the series Goku enters a Gravity chamber and works his ass off to get stronger. Even as a kid he never let a thing like gravity slow him down. So I am going to be doing 2 lifting days and one strength day with static hold to practice fighting gravity Goal 3: Improve my skills daily I plan on working on a work related skill at least 10 mins daily, from going on code academy to reading one of my computer books or studying for a cert, it is time to up my skills and get a better paying position that actually challenges me. Here is the planned chart of the days and is likely subject to change: Mon Tues Wed Thurs Fri Sat Sun Week 1 Recovery BS 5/5/5/5/5/ 3/1/1/1+ Bench Press 5 x 5 Decline Sit-up 5 x 5 Recovery Phase 2 Workout +Rucking OHP 5/5/5/5/5/ 3/1/1/1+ Pull-up 5 x 5 Good Mornings 5 x 5 Recovery Rucking Week 2 Recovery Deadlift 5 x 5 Bent Over Row 5/5/5/5/5/ 3/1/1/1+ Overhead Squat 5 x 5 Recovery Phase 2 Workout +Rucking Front Squat 5 x 5 Bench Press 5 x 5 Hyperext. 5 x 5 Recovery Rucking Mon Tues Wed Thurs Fri Sat Sun Week 3 Recovery Bench Press 5/5/5/5/5/ 3/1/1/1+ Chin-up 5 x 5 Weighted Side Bends 5 x 5 Recovery Phase 2 Workout +Rucking Back Squat 5 x 5 Pull-up 5/5/5/5/5/ 3/1/1/1+ Decline Sit-up 5 x 5 Recovery Rucking Week 4 Recovery Deadlift 5/5/5/5/5/ 3/1/1/1+ OHP 5 x 5 Good Mornings 5 x 5 Recovery Phase 2 Workout +Rucking Bench Press 5 x 5 Bent Over Row 5 x 5 Overhead Squat 5 x 5 Recovery Rucking
  3. MAIN QUEST: Train for Half Marathon April is literally just around the corner. My main goal is to continue to train for the half marathon. I have a goal finishing time of 3:30:00, and I really, really hope to come in under that. The rolling hills of Kentucky might have it out for me, so I am looking for more hill laden runs as we get closer. I am in my final four weeks of training… and these next few weeks will be critical for me to stay on track health, wellness, and fitness wise. Goal One: Kame House - Training Goku spends the majority of his early training with Master Roshi at Kame House, learning ‘the basics’. My goal at Kame House will be to continue my running 3x per week until my rest week, where I will not run from Wednesday until Race Day. Week One: 0/3 Week Two: 0/3 Week Three: 0/3 Week Four: 0/3 Goal Two: Snake Way - Conditioning Snake Way is one helluva long road filled with quite a few obstacles for Goku to face. He needs to be agile and nimble to make his way to the end of the road. My goal will be to work on my hip, hamstring, and shoulder flexibility to limber up the limbs for the half marathon and prevent any injury that may try to sneak up in the coming days. I will incorporate three days of stretching in per week. Week One: 0/3 Week Two: 0/3 Week Three: 0/3 Week Four: 0/3 Goal Three: Korin Tower - Strength At Korin Tower, Goku seeks more strength. I also would like to seek more strength XD. I will be keeping up my usual 3x per week lifting routine. Week One: 0/3 Week Two: 0/3 Week Three: 0/3 Week Four: 0/3 Life Side Quest: Capsule Corporation - Mind Dr. Brief is an incredible scientist and genius. So many of his inventions help Goku and his gang on their journey, and Bulma’s talents don’t fall far from the family tree. I want to use my brain… I have disengaged myself from the news so much lately because it’s ugly out there. I want to read three news articles a week to try to get a better picture on the world again. I’ll probably come back here to summarize what I read, because that sounds like a good plan. Week One: 0/3 Week Two: 0/3 Week Three: 0/3 Week Four: 0/3 EXTRA QUEST: Bad Guy Face Off Taken from the amazing LadyShello: For the upcoming 4 week challenge, 1 bad guy will be selected at random to battle against me. Each bad guy has been tentatively assigned with a battle type representing the 4 categories of goals for the challenge. Select the bad guy you would like to portray. Sign up to battle me HERE!
  4. My Mission: To create a maintainable fitness plan and get back to my pre-summer weight of 145. Summer is full of fun, beer festivals, and food. I have been able to stay within about 5-7 pounds of my goal weight (which I achieved back in May), but I’d like to quit making excuses and make fitness a habit again, rather than relying on my revved up metabolism to keep me in check. Kaio-Ken… TIMES TEN! (Goal 1) Workout 5x per week for 30 minutes or more. This worked out really well in my last challenge, so I am doing it again. Instead of feeling pigeon holed in one program, having the ability to realize it’s gorgeous out and I’d rather go for a bike ride is important to me staying on track. It brings the enjoyment back to fitness again. And that will keep me stable much longer than feeling trapped by constraints. I would like to work toward a balance of cardio and weights while training for a 10 mile in October. It’s Over 9000! (Life Quest) Continue paying off credit card debt and saving for the future. With plans for baby on the horizon, this is getting even more serious and more important. Goals this go around will be: - Pay $100 off on both credit cards per month ($100 a pay period to one card, and then $100 to the other the next pay period). - Put $100 per pay period into a savings account - Cut back $150 allowance per paycheck to $100 and LIVE WITHIN THAT RANGE. It’s okay to say no. You’re so totally allocated right now. Get used to it. KAKAROOOOOOT!!!!! (Goal 2) Core work 3x per week You've got to have a strong core to do all the yelling Vegeta does... And I need a strong core because I don't really have one. I plan to try to get 10 Min Abs in 3x per week, or supplement with other core workouts. Eternal Dragon, by your name, I summon you forth, Shenron (Side Quest) One Cleaning Project a Week I can’t gather Dragon Balls and wish my house clean. Believe me, I've tried. I’m starting a list of projects I will work on throughout each week to slowly chip away at all the projects I need to take care of that have been driving me NUTS. Take garage sale labels off of four boxes of books to bring them to Half Price Books for resale. Finish revamping and organizing the craft room. Take donation boxes in the garage to Good Will Organize brewing kit (under stairwell and in sunroom) Clean the freaking master bedroom already! Complete ALL laundry in the laundry room and put it all away. Buu Turn You Into CANDY! (Goal 3) Eat out only once per week and stay as clean as humanly possible. I realize I can’t eat clean 100% of the time, and that some restaurants are pretty clean as is. I want to be as aware of what I choose to put in my body as possible. My goal remains the same from last challenge -- one meal out per week.
  5. I had always thought that saiya-jin were a little strange for getting stronger after a fight, or somewhere where they really tested their limits. BUT after reading the recent post here on NF about becoming Anti-fragile, I have realized that it might not be out of the reach of people! My goal is to harness my inner 'anti-fragileness', and enjoy a classic from when I was a kid at the same time! One question... I am starting this quest of mine now, but, what happens if I am in the next 6 week challenge too? Am I to assume because this is all to get people into healthy fitness lifestyles, that I can take the 60 day challenge at any time and have it count towards it? EPIC QUEST To become a Super Saiya-jin (100% Anti-fragile) CURRENT QUEST: Training for the Tenkaichi budÅkai! (Lose a combined "20 inches" in all of these areas; in 6 weeks) - NECK (for most people, this is the thing that connects your body to your head) - SHOULDERS (both arms down at your side, at the widest point from shoulder to shoulder) - CHEST (lift up your arms, wrap the tape measure around your chest, just above the nipple, and then lower your arms) - BICEP (either left or right, but be consistent) - WAIST (at the belly button for consistency) - HIPS (measure the widest part of your hips) - THIGH (left or right, but pick the same spot on your thigh each week) GOALS FOR CURRENT QUEST: 1) Working out or doing something active at least three times a week. o A = Three times this week o B = Two times this week o C = Once this week o F = Nothing 2) Plan out (and eat) meals following the Paleo diet. (2-3 meals a day) o A = 6+ days of compliance o B = 4+ days of compliance o C = 3+ days of compliance o F = Less than three days of compliance. 3) Get at least 8 hours of sleep (This will likely be the hardest part) o A = 6+ days of compliance o B = 4+ days of compliance o C = 3+ days of compliance o F = Less than three days of compliance.
  6. Wooh Wooh!! First challenge as a Monk and second overall. Time to get to it then: http://youtu.be/bQAULthTBvA I've been too sedentary, this time around I'm determined to get moving. BBWW, walking to Morodor and KickBoxing are what I have on my plate for this challenge. I also need to eat more like a Saiyan; veggies and meat are the way to go! I also need to use this time to gauge my center, so it's on with the Yoga and meditation. I really need to learn consistency, so I will offer myself bonus points if I can keep on track. On to my goals! #1: Gohan's Wilderness Training: No more messing around! M-W-F are my Beginner Body Weight Circuit days and T-Th will be my KickBoxing/Yoga days. Bonus points for not skipping more than 2 workouts a week. +2 STR BONUS: +3 CON #2: 10x Earth Gravity Training: Keep up with my 100 Pushup Challenge every day and hopefully be up to the big 1-0-0 by the time this challenge ends. Bonus Points for not skipping more than one workout a week. +1 STR +2 STA BONUS: +2 DEX #3: Eat Like Goku I need to explore my options as far as paleo goes. I've found that I'm in love with veggies (broccoli in particular) and I'm sure there's room for more. I also need to mix up the menu a little more. Add in seafood when finances allow and get down with some spare ribs since they're apparently super cheap at the Latin Market down the street. Bonus Points for eating one new veggie a week till the end of the challenge. +2 WIS BONUS: +1 DEX Side Goal: Gohan's Study Regiment: Collection of ze informacion. I need to keep up with my new Coursera classes, and read more. I'm also trying to learn spanish with Duolingo, so far so good, and I need to make using the app a habitual thing. +2 CHA So There it is. I don't have a way to get exact stats but my weight as of the moment is around 220 and my waist size is "36. I want to be around 200 and a 34" by time this challenge is over but it's more of a guideline than anything. As for my collection of information goal, I've started with Tim Ferriss' "4 Hour Chef" and I'll be reading along with the audiobook. Hopefully I'll finish it faster that way.
