My goals for this challenge are really basic: keep going to the gym, continue with the StrongLifts 5x5 program so that by the end of this challenge, I'll have been doing StrongLifts for 14 weeks;improve flexibility in legs, hip and back for future bodyweight challenges;eat less carbs (easier done now that the Christmas/New Years break is done),intermittent fasting 2x/wk, anduse determination to do those things I should be doing around the house (referring to a private New Years resolution).That's all.
Main Quest: Lose 4 pounds Starting: 209.4 pounds Goal #1) Walk/Run 18.6 miles I signed up to be part of a running club. But on a personal level I am going to work on this, very slowly. I am also challenging myself to run in the afternoons as I prefer to run in the mornings (but Iâ€™m usually too tired to run!). So my goal is to run with the group on the following dates: April 19 April 26 May 3 May 10 May 17 May 24Stats: +1 STA, +1 CHA, +1 DEX Goal #2) Axe Lifting (5 pounds) and Push Ups So in my past challenges I have tried to do pushups. Real push-ups. Last week my trainer asked me to do a simple tricepsâ€™ exercise. I could not for the life of me. Turns out my triceps are too tight. It hurts a lot to even stretch them. So Iâ€™ll be working on those now. I believe I can push myself to do the following. Every other day 3 Reps of 5 Push Ups, then every other day 3 Reps of 5 lifts Every other day 3 Reps of 5 Push Ups, then every other day 3 Reps of 5 lifts Every other day 3 Reps of 10 Push Ups, then every other day 3 Reps of 10 lifts Every other day 3 Reps of 10 Push Ups, then every other day 3 Reps of 10 lifts Every other day 3 Reps of 15 Push Ups, then every other day 3 Reps of 15 lifts Every other day 3 Reps of 15 Push Ups, then every other day 3 Reps of 15 liftsStats: +1 STA, +2 STR Goal #3) Hunt more, bake less I am cutting down my carb intake and upping my protein intake. According to myfitnesspal.com my carb intake should be 220g but I will be lowering it slightly to 200g. And then my protein intake is 91g but I will be raising it to 100g. My calorie intake will stay the same (1800 calories). I will take cheats this time not on the calories but on the carbs/proteins 3 cheats 2 cheats 2 cheats 1 cheats 1 cheats 0 cheatsStats: +1 STA, +1 WIS, +1 CON Life Goal) Grooming Working on myself is very important this year. One thing I realized is that I am so scared of taking pictures of myself. I hate when my boyfriend tries to take a photo of me. Everything. I start crying with every photo. So Iâ€™m challenging myself, 1 photo a day for 42 days. No cheats. Finish reading FBI Careers 42 Days of PhotosStats +2 WIS, +1 CHA, +1 CON
