  1. BRIEFING Hey everybody, I'm back! The infamous wedding took up too much of my time towards the end of my last challenge, and the start of the previous challenge here. By the time I started to get back into it the challenge was well underway and I opted not to jump in, though I know I should have. Anyway, for those wondering how I did with the "look awesome in a kilt for the wedding"..well... There it is... I did awesome! Of course since then I haven't done as awesome, so I totally get to play catch up again. Yay! MAIN CHALLENGE In April I'm going out to Celebration in Anaheim, California. Having recently spent 4 days at New York Comic Con and feeling completely wasted I want to get myself in better shape to be able to handle Celebration, especially since I'm hoping to be in costume there, and I wasn't at NYCC. So the plan is to get into shape where I won't be a mess of pain after Celebration. MOTIVATION The motivation is to feel awesome, and to get into the best shape I've ever been. Be able to deal with Celebration and get in shape to be a good role model for any future offspring that might come about from the marriage. SUB-QUESTS Quest 1 - I Am Groot: No Grains/Dairy [CON:3] I've fallen off the wagon since I was last here, and I need to get back on it. I'm going to get back to eating normally again. A: No Grains/Dairy all Six Weeks B: No Grains/Dairy for Five Weeks C: No Grains/Dairy for Four Weeks D: No Grains/Dairy for Three Weeks D: No Grains/Dairy > Three Weeks Quest 2 - I'm Star-Lord, Man.: Strength Exercise 2-3 times per week [STR:3|STA:2] Working towards getting back on the bandwagon again, need to re-start the exercise habit by trying to do something 2-3 times per week. A: 2-3x Per Week For All Six Weeks B: 2-3x Per Week For Five Weeks C: 2-3x Per Week for Four Weeks D: 2-3x Per Week for Three Weeks F: 2-3x Per Week for > Three Weeks Quest 3 - I Have Part of a Plan: Walk at least 15 Minutes 2-3 times per week [STA:3|CON: 2] Since conventions involve a lot of moving about and being on your feet for extended periods I figured I'd focus on something that'll increase my ability to be on my feet. A: 2-3x Per Week For All Six Weeks B: 2-3x Per Week For Five Weeks C: 2-3x Per Week for Four Weeks D: 2-3x Per Week for Three Weeks F: 2-3x Per Week for > Three Weeks SIDE QUEST Side Quest 1 - There's another name you might know me by: Work towards becoming OM of MMCC [WIS:2] In order to be an Official Member of the Mandalorian Mercs Costuming Club one needs to have a costume of Mandalorian Armor that meets their minimum requirements. I've been working on a costume for some time, and since I want to be in kit for Celebration this is something to focus on. A: Work on Kit 3x Per Week for Six Weeks B: Work on Kit 3x Per Week for Five Weeks C: Work on Kit 3x Per Week for Four Weeks D: Work on Kit 3x Per Week for Three Weeks F: Work on Kit 3x Per Week for > Three Weeks MEASUREMENTS Height: 68" Weight: 225lbs Waist: 44.25" Hips: 41.5" Chest: 42" Neck: 15.5" Thigh(Left): 23.5" Thigh(Right): 24" Bicep(Left): 13.5" Bicep(Right): 13.5" Body Fat: 34% Yup...back at the beginning again, time to really kick it into gear. MINI-QUESTS Mini-Quest 1 - Completed +1 CHA Mini-Quest 2 - Completed +1 WIS Mini-Quest 3 - Pending 11/24/2014 Mini-Quest 4 - Pending 12/01/2014 Mini-Quest 5 - Pending 12/08/2014 Mini-Quest 6 - Pending 12/15/2014 So here we are, I'm back... and I'm hoping to get back to where I was at when I left... though it might take me a bit.
  2. MAIN CHALLENGE As for the past few challenges, I've been saying "Look awesome in a Kilt for my wedding day" I'm going to say that's still the goal but I want to be more specific. I hope to hit around 180 lbs by the wedding date of 09/20/2014. It's been the same for the past few challenges, but this means a weight loss of 28 lbs in under two months, while some people have had that kind of loss I'm doubtful that it'll be legitimately possible, but I'm still going to try! (Healthily) MOTIVATION The motivation is the hope to see the looks and reactions of everyone when the see me in the best shape of my life standing up at the infamous altar. Not to mention the increase capability, improved emotional state, and other benefits from the healthier life. SUB-QUESTS Quest 1 - Calories Count: Eat at most between 1500-1600 Calories per day [CON:2 | WIS:2] I'm in a good place with the food I eat, trying to focus on keeping within a specific calorie range to focus on fat loss. A: Did Not Exceed 1600 Calories per day all Six Weeks B: Did Not Exceed 1600 Calories per day for Four Weeks C: Exceed 1600 Calories per day 2 days per week for Four Weeks D: Exceed 1600 Calories per day 3 days per week for Four Weeks D: Exceed 1600 Calories per day >3 days per week Quest 2 - Selective Sugars: Cut Down/Out Added Sugars [CON:2 | WIS: 2] The idea here is to focus on cutting out added sugars. Only natural sugars found in things like fruits, vegetables, and possibly honey when making food at home. Exceptions will be made for Cured Meats (such as Bacon). A: No Cheats For All Six Weeks B: 1 Cheat A Week For Four Weeks C: 2 Cheats a Week for Four Weeks D: 3 Cheats a Week for Four Weeks F: >3 Cheats a Week Quest 3 - Muscle Misc: Perform a Mix of Strength/Cardio Exercises at least 3x a week [STR: 2|STA:2] Continuing my attempts to get my exercise habit, want to make sure I add in walking in addition to the strength exercises A+: Exercise 3x a week for all 6 weeks B: Exercise 2x a week for 5 weeks C. Exercise 2x a week for 4 weeks D. Exercise 2x a week for 3 weeks F. Exercise 2x a week for >3 weeks SIDE QUEST Side Quest 1 - Work Wreckage: Spend at least 1 hour per workday on backlog [WIS: 1] I've allowed myself to gain a massive backlog of some of my duties at work, I intend to fully catch up and keep up during this challenge. Side Quest 2 - Frugal Finances: Track Income, Bills, and Spending every day [WIS: 2] Back to the budget this time, I had an awesome job last time, and with the impending wedding and recent move it's time to get back on top of this one again. MEASUREMENTS Height: 68" Weight: 208.5 Waist: 42" Hips: 40.25" Chest: 40.75" Neck: 15" Thigh(Left): 21" Thigh(Right): 22" Bicep(Left): 13" Bicep(Right): 13.25" Body Fat %: 32% Some of these numbers are a bit of a departure from the end of the last challenge. The waist measurement I didn't take as tightly as previously. I think I was taking the measurement too tightly and so I let it loosen up a little bit to give a more true picture of what's going on. I may have gained a little bit regardless, but not as much as this might suggest compared to the last one.

  3. Hello Everybody! Here I am with Challenge number 8! I'm thinking of trying out something new with my scoring this time through, so let's check it out. MAIN CHALLENGE As for the past few challenges, I've been saying "Look awesome in a Kilt for my wedding day" I'm going to say that's still the goal but I want to be more specific. I hope to hit around 180 lbs by the wedding date of 09/20/2014. That's a weight loss of around 40 lbs, might be a bit much so I won't be devastated if I don't reach it, but that's the dream. (Copypasta is my friend...80P) MOTIVATION The motivation is the hope to see the looks and reactions of everyone when the see me in the best shape of my life standing up at the infamous altar. Not to mention the increase capability, improved emotional state, and other benefits from the healthier life. SUB-QUESTS Quest 1 - Dietary Destruction!: Avoid Cereal Grains, Dairy, and Potatoes (sweet/regular) [CON:4] Upgraded From the last challenge to include the potatoes, time to own it again. A+: No Cheats For All Six Weeks (Bonus 1 CON) A: 1 Cheat A Week For Four Weeks B: 2 Cheats a Week for Four Weeks C: 3 Cheats a Week for Four Weeks D: 3 Cheats a Week for Six Weeks F: >3 Cheats a Week Quest 2 - Sack the Snacks: Cut out the snacking again [CON:2] I cut out snacking in challenge 5, but allowed it back in 6. I think it's a big part of my current plateau, hoping that cutting them out will help going forward. A+: No Cheats For All Six Weeks (Bonus 1 CON) A: 1 Cheat A Week For Four Weeks B: 2 Cheats a Week for Four Weeks C: 3 Cheats a Week for Four Weeks D: 3 Cheats a Week for Six Weeks F: >3 Cheats a Week Quest 3 - Bodyweight Bonanza: Perform NF's Beginner Bodyweight Workout Routine at least 2x a week [STR: 2|STA:1] Continuing my attempts to get my exercise habit, heading back the beginner bodyweight routine that I tried many many challenges ago, hopefully it'll stick this time. A+: Exercise 3x a week for all 6 weeks (Bonus 1 STA) A: Exercise 2x a week for all 6 weeks B: Exercise 2x a week for 5 weeks C. Exercise 2x a week for 4 weeks D. Exercise 2x a week for 3 weeks F. Exercise 2x a week for >3 weeks SIDE QUEST Side Quest - Shivering Showers: Complete Cold Shower 30 Day Challenge [CON: 2] Attempt to do the 30 Day Cold Shower Challenge again, this has a few things behind it, and I did this successfully a few challenges ago, now I plan to make a return. A+: Cold Shower every day all 6 Weeks (Bonus 1 STA) A: Completed 30 Day Challenge B: 25 Days of Challenge Completed C. 20 Days of Challenge Completed D. 15 Days of Challenge Completed F. <15 Days of Challenge Completed MEASUREMENTS Red - Up | Green - Down | Blue - Same (vs end of last challenge) Height: 68" Weight: 212 lbs Waist: 40" Hips: 39.75" Chest: 40" Neck: 15" Thigh(Left): 22.25" Thigh(Right): 21.5" Bicep(Left): 12.75" Bicep(Right): 13.25" Body Fat %: 29% At first I was surprised that my weight had actually gone down between challenges, but after taking the measurements and thinking about it I figured that it's likely just muscle loss that helped me cut down the weight from the end of the last challenge, especially since the waist measurement is up an inch. As you can see I've opted to try something else for the start of this challenge, I usually let each challenge be it's own separate thing, generally unconnected to the previous, but now I want to compare directly to the previous one for the measurements, or at least view it as a continuation from there. So I've opted to add in the coloring to help track that. Also, sorry about the images...I had some settings a bit off on the camera, and it used a flash (which it hasn't done for this photos previously). MINI-QUESTS Mini-Quest #1: Distractia - Completed +1 WIS Mini-Quest #2: Distractia's Casino - Completed +1 DEX Mini-Quest #3: Distractia's Sneak Attack - Completed +1 CHA Mini-Quest #4: Fight Distraction - Completed +1 STR Mini-Quest #5: We're all Liars - Completed +1 WIS Mini-Quest #6: Slay Distractia - Completed +1 CON Bonus Mini-Quest: Looking Back - Completed +1 WIS So there we are, my current challenge, let me know your thoughts about the idea of bonus points and such (still sticking within the 15 points so I'm not giving myself extra), we'll see how it pans out!
  4. Greetings everybody! RogueWelkin's back for his seventh foray into the Adventurers! Now to stop freaking you all out he'll stop referring to himself in the third person! So after the events of last challenge I decided that this one will be focused on dietary goals, since I didn't ace my Path to Paleo that'll be coming back this time. But I think focusing solely on dietary challenges will help get me to my main goal and get me past the slump I've been in the past few challenges, then the challenge after this can probably be more focused on exercise. MAIN CHALLENGE As for the past few challenges, I've been saying "Look awesome in a Kilt for my wedding day" I'm going to say that's still the goal but I want to be more specific. I hope to hit around 180 lbs by the wedding date of 09/20/2014. That's a weight loss of around 40 lbs, might be a bit much so I won't be devastated if I don't reach it, but that's the dream. (Yes I was lazy and just left this the same as last time...same with my motivation too!) MOTIVATION The motivation is the hope to see the looks and reactions of everyone when the see me in the best shape of my life standing up at the infamous altar. Not to mention the increase capability, improved emotional state, and other benefits from the healthier life. SUB-QUESTS Quest 1 - Path to Paleo: Avoid Cereal Grains and Dairy [CON:5] Carried over from the previous two challenges, I'm sticking with this until I can manage an A rating. A: No Cheats For All Six Weeks B: 1 Cheat A Week For Four Weeks C: 2 Cheats a Week for Four Weeks D: 3 Cheats a Week for Six Weeks F: >3 Cheats a Week Quest 2 - Potato Potahto: Say goodbye to Potatoes, Sweet variety as well [CON:3] So I didn't lose much over the past challenge, after the first week I lost about 5 lbs, then the second week I lost 1 lbs, then I gained that one pound back and it stayed. I think a heavy leaning on potatoes in my meals this challenge created this, so this time I'm trying to cut them out. A: No Cheats For All Six Weeks B: 1 Cheat A Week For Four Weeks C: 2 Cheats a Week for Four Weeks D: 3 Cheats a Week for Six Weeks F: >3 Cheats a Week Quest 3 - Decaffeinated: Cut out the caffeine [CON: 2|STA:2] One of the other major issues in my last challenge was a return to caffeinated beverages after a long period of time, I had them cut out completely previous, but a lot entered into my apartment because of parties, and left via my mouth. Cutting them out should help move forward. (Yes, Stamina...cutting out the caffeine seems to let me have more energy throughout the day without a major crash in the middle) A: No Cheats For All Six Weeks B: 1 Cheat A Week For Four Weeks C: 2 Cheats a Week for Four Weeks D: 3 Cheats a Week for Six Weeks F: >3 Cheats a Week SIDE QUEST Side Quest - Keep up the Exercise Habit: Find an exercise regimen I'll enjoy enough to have less issues performing it during the week. [STR: 2|STA:1] I've been having motivation issues performing exercises 3 times a week, I managed it mostly last time, but it was a fight each time. I need to either find a place,time,outfit, or exercise(s) to help keep this going each week. A: Exercise 3x a week for all 6 weeks B: Exercise 3x a week for 5 weeks C. Exercise 3x a week for 4 weeks D. Exercise 3x a week for 3 weeks F. Exercise 3x a week for >3 weeks MEASUREMENTS Height: 68" Weight: 219 lbs Waist: 41.75" Hips: 41" Chest: 41" Neck: 15.25" Thigh(Left): 22.75" Thigh(Right): 22.25" Bicep(Left): 12.75" Bicep(Right): 13.25" BF%: 31% % of Weight Lost Towards Goal: 13.33% MINI-QUESTS Mini Quest 0: The Prequel - Completed +1 WIS Mini-Quest 1: R2-D2 and C-3P0 - Completed +1 CHA Mini-Quest 2: Han Solo and Chewbacca - Completed +1 STA Mini-Quest 3: Yoda - Completed +1 WIS Mini-Quest 4: Jabba the Hutt - Completed +1 STA Mini-Quest 5: Be Brave - Completed +1 WIS Mini-Quest 6: Climb Out - Completed +1 CHA There we are, time to try get that Kilted me looking awesome.
  5. Howdy all, it's your favorite future kilted groom all up in the hizouse! Obviously I haven't gotten any cooler during the challenges, but that's just all part of my charm. This time around will be continuing to attempt to build habits, tightening the belt, and getting myself focused. I'm going to try to be more strict this time around. I'm starting to run low on time and I need to start getting actual results going on, well...I got some results from the last challenge. I definitely feel stronger and notice more musculature, but I've not done much in the weight loss department...only having gone down three or four pounds during the last challenge...and that was only at the very end. I'm hoping to speed up my results this time. I also intend to return to the measurement tracking and picture taking this challenge, so keep on the lookout for this post getting updated on the 23rd with that information. I might refine these challenges within that time frame as well... we'll see. MAIN CHALLENGE As for the past few challenges, I've been saying "Look awesome in a Kilt for my wedding day" I'm going to say that's still the goal but I want to be more specific. I hope to hit around 180 lbs by the wedding date of 09/20/2014. That's a weight loss of around 40 lbs, might be a bit much so I won't be devastated if I don't reach it, but that's the dream. MOTIVATION The motivation is the hope to see the looks and reactions of everyone when the see me in the best shape of my life standing up at the infamous altar.

SUB-QUESTS Quest 1 - Path to Paleo: Avoid Cereal Grains and Dairy [CON:5] Carried over from the previous two challenges, I'm sticking with this until I can manage an A rating. A: No Cheats For All Six Weeks B: 1 Cheat A Week For Four Weeks C: 2 Cheats a Week for Four Weeks D: 3 Cheats a Week for Six Weeks F: >3 Cheats a Week Quest 2 - Snackless Living: Cut out snacking between meals [CON:2] One of the issues of the failure to lose weight was likely due to the amount of snacking I did between my main meals. I hope to resolve this and focus on weight loss by cutting out snacking all together. A: No Cheats For All Six Weeks B: 1 Cheat A Week For Four Weeks C: 2 Cheats a Week for Four Weeks D: 3 Cheats a Week for Six Weeks F: >3 Cheats a Week Quest 3 - Work it Out: 3x Exercises 3x a week [STR:3|STA:2] Even though I didn't quite ace the last one, I was close enough that I thought I could upgrade this to add in additional exercise. The aim is to do at least 3 exercises at least 3 times a week. A: Perform Exercises 3x a Week All Six Weeks B: Perform Exercises 3x a Week For Four Weeks C: Perform Exercises 2x a Week All Six Weeks D: Perform Exercises 2x A Week For Four Weeks F: Perform Exercises <2x A Week For Four Weeks SIDE QUEST Side Quest - All About the Benjamins: Create and Stick to a Budget [WIS:3] Financial woes have proved to be a major source of stress and frustration, and I worry that it will eventually cause issues within my upcoming marriage as well. For now I have a habit of living paycheck to paycheck, and doing a poor job of it with an ever increasing regularity of overdrafts thus causing me to lose even more money. This is a situation that needs to stop, and in order to do that I'll need to create a budget and stick with it. Game plan is create budget during first week, and then stick with it for the following 5 weeks. A: Create Budget in Week #1 and stick to it for 5-6 Weeks B: Create Budget in Week #1 and stick to it for 4 Weeks C. Create Budget in Week #1/2 and stick to it for 3-4 Weeks D. Create Budget after Week #2 and stick to it for 3 Weeks F. Do not create budget, or stick to created budget for <3 Weeks MEASUREMENTS Weight: 225 lbs Waist: 43.25" Hips: 42" Chest: 42" Neck: 15.5" Thigh(Left): 21.75" Thigh(Right): 23.75" Bicep(Left): 13.5" Bicep(Right): 13.5" Body Fat %: 33% Photos: MINI-QUESTS Mini-Quest 1- The Dietician is Back! - Completed +1 CON Mini-Quest 2 - The Latest Plot - Completed +1 CON Mini-Quest 3 - Be Brave - Completed+1 STR Mini-Quest 4 - Stop, Collaborate, and Eat Some - Completed +1 CON & Belt of Dietary Willpower Mini-Quest 5 - Run!
