Ok so it is way past my bedtime (off to a great start, aren't I??) so I will throw down these goals really quickly and elaborate later as needed. Since last month's challenge was a mediocre success, I am tweaking the formula but going with the same basic goals. I will repeat what needed more work, and I will amp up the goals that I was successful in achieving. Based on my learnings from last challenge, here goes: Diet Reduce coffee-with-cream drink at office to one per day, after that, consume only black coffee or herbal tea drinks (round 2 - need to make this a habit!)Meet my MFP calorie intake goal 5 out of 7 days of the week (I have committed to a 500 cal/day deficit - on the other two days I will not eat more than I burn)Side note: I have converted to MyFitnessPal for food logging because it lets me delete the Fitbit's ridiculous calorie adjustments and helps keep me real. More discussions to come. Have you also had this experience?? Reply to this thread and let's chat about it!It's official: this round the goal IS weightloss. I'll start small, and while aiming for a pound a week, I'd take half a pound also. The point is that I'm sticking to the realistic calorie deficit and aiming to shed some weight! Fitness Meet my Fitbit activity goal of 5 active days per week (go for a 40+ min walk, use stationary bike 30+ minutes, cardio or yoga, etc) Level Up Your Life Wake up no later than 6 am on weekdays, and 8 am on weekends (If I have not slept enough I will give myself a free pass on Sundays for a reduced grade, but I'm hoping to not need it)As evidenced by the fact that I'm posting this at midnight, I'm clearly a night owl and I struggle with sleep like nobody's business. I'm hoping by forcing myself to get up early it will help create a more habitual routine that will have me falling asleep earlier at night (although chances are I may become prone to napping and narcolepsy... well, we'll see lol)
Straight to the point... Main Quest Lose 12 pounds in six weeks. Straight forward, to the point. How am I going to get there? Missions #1: Log my food intake daily. A = 42 days tracked (+3 WIS +1 CON) B = 35-41 days tracked (+2 WIS) C = 28-34 days tracked. (+1 WIS) #2: Exercise for at least 30 minutes each day. This would be a total of 21 hours throughout the course of 42 days, or six weeks. I will allow missing a day, and being able to make it up the following, or working out extra-long one day to skip the following etc. +2 STR +1 DEX +2 STA A = 21 hours or greater (+2 STR +1 DEX +2 STA) B = Greater than 19 hours but less than 21 hours. (+1 STR +1 DEX +2 STA) C = Greater than 17 hours but less than 19 hours. (+1 STR +2 STA) #3: I DM/GM a P&P Roleplay, and Iâ€™m notorious for eating like a garbage compactor during them, this is also compounded by the fact I drink like a fish during such escapades too; as a goal I would like to keep my consumption of candy/chips/booze etc. in check. One such week during the previous challenge was a quiet absurd amount of calories once I logged it. It can, in all seriousness, derail an entire week of goodness. Each Thursday will be categorized as followed; the end of the challenge I will average them out; e.g. if Iâ€™m able to stay within my calorie limit for the day through each RP session Iâ€™ll award myself the associated stats. A = Stay within my Calorie limits for the day (+2 WIS +1 CON) B = Exceed my Calorie limits for the day by 300 (+1 WIS +1 CON) C = Exceed my Calorie Limits for the day by 500 (+1 WIS) Life Goal Try and get my best friend out once a week. Sounds simple, butâ€¦ circumstances. A = 6 out of 6 weeks! (+3 CHA) B= 5 out of 6 weeks! (+2 CHA) C = 4 out of 6 weeks! (+1 CHA) Starting weight: 258lb (currently, will change at start of challenge)
