Last challenge I had just started my career as a pharmacist (baby pharmacist...give me another 40 weeks), and so it was all about maintenance. Building habits, getting into the rhythm of work, while also passing my level 2 roller derby skills. It was a whopping success This challenge is all about change. Main Goal: Lose weight (& pass level 3 min skills) It seems a little...simple. I don't have a target weight, but I am choosing to base my weight loss off my BMI. While I know it's not the most reliable marker of healthy weight, for someone like me who is more jiggle than muscle, it's satisfactory. Current BMI: 25.5 Target BMI: 23(ish) Starting weight: 69.6kg (153lb) Ideally I would like to get down to about 60kg. Whether I can do that has yet to be seen. And this is all part of becoming Rita Lin (my hopeful derby name). I need to lose weight, get fit, and pass through those minimum skills. Quests: Attend all Wednesday roller derby sessions - This is a given. It'll help me keep fit, lose weight, and get me towards becoming Rita Lin, that min skills passed skater.Pack a healthy lunch for work - I got into this habit last challenge and I did really well. I've also taken to having a protein shake at about 11am, as that stops me eating too much on my lunch. Lunch should hopefully be made up of pasta or salad, and one snack that should be either cheese or fruit. That's the idea anyway.Workout twice a week - incorporating both strength and cardio. This is open to interpretation. Ideally I'll go to the gym twice, as I've paid for membership, however I'm going to count Sunday skating sessions in this, and will also count them as my extra workouts.Throughout all of this I must also continue doing my physio every day. I'm hoping that I can succeed this challenge, because hopefully I'll be moving into my first house at some point in the next six weeks. Cross fingers it won't put a spanner in the works I'll post some before pictures tomorrow if i'm feeling brave.
