Silmarilliane's Ninth Challenge
Silmarilliane posted a topic in AdventurersHi there! How do? Feel free to peruse my previous challenges (in my signature) for an overview of my life over the past year My life goal is to improve my health and get over my issue with food (= if I donâ€™t calorie count, I binge). My goal for 2015 is to get clear below 11 stone (currently anywhere between 11 stone 2 and 11 stone 6) and to be able to do one chin up. Every challenge so far has involved calorie counting, so Iâ€™m going to mix it up this time and totes steal ideas from my amazing twin from another city, Deftona The rest will be exercise based. Goal 1: Intermittent fasting Not eat anything until midday each day â€“ for the most part I wonâ€™t be allowed to eat after 10pm the night before, but will allow myself to extend this in certain circumstances (e.g. where eating something after drinking is just sensible to reduce hangover etc!) Bonus points if the number of â€˜failâ€™ days is less than 10. Goal 2: Dumbbells I have two currently set at 12.5kg (recently upped from 10kg), and my usual routine is bicep curls, military press and chest press. By the end of the challenge I want to be able to comfortably do 3x10 reps for each. Bonus points for the weeks I add squats, deadlifts and the like. Goal 3: Jogging (pron. yogging obvs) I really enjoy running and have been pretty lame at keeping up with it. I need to do at least 3 hours of running over the challenge. This equates to only 30 minutes a week which SHOULD be easy, but means I have to catch up if I forget! Bonus points if I do more than 3 hours total. Goal 4: Press-ups So from the beginning of the year Iâ€™ve attempted 20 press-ups a day, which started strong and has become more every other day or every few. Over six weeks this would be 840 done, so Iâ€™m setting that as my goal â€“ allowing myself to catch up on days Iâ€™ve forgotten. Bonus points for going over this by the end, and super bonus points for going over 1000 Thatâ€™s all, wish me fun! Silmarilliane
