  1. "I'm Coming For Ya, BEAST!" QUEST 1 Maintain deficit: This KCAL range is proving to be a struggle, so i'm gonna keep it here and hopefully find somebody who will do a form of PvP with me for the added accountability. My weight is stabilizing while i think i need to lower it and lose some extra BF. For added accountability i'm gonna do a written report of what i ate the day(s) before. ***** QUEST 2 Keep up protein: Of course i will try to do my best to keep as much muscle as possible. I'm still doing lots of stuff to enhance my body and it needs the right kind of fuel, so protein is gonna be a big part of my diet. ***** QUEST 3 Minimize beer input: I thought about removing this quest since i'm doing quite nice, except, seasons are changing. And well, next two seasons it's gonna be: "'Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la la la la la. Fill the meadcup, drain the barrel," So just to keep grinding-in this habit i'm gonna stick with it at least for the upcoming challenge(s). And this grinding definitely needs work, as weather is turning up and the occasions i would normally indulge on beer are lining up! Though i will have my occasional reward because it's just too damn good! ***** QUEST 4 MIndfully choose a meal: Just to keep as clean as possible i'm forcing myself to think (in advance) about every meal i eat. Easier to keep in line with the KCAL and better to fuel my body with the "best" option available. I'm gonna update it with a plan a (couple of) day(s) ahead, to keep up with the good eating and according KCAL deficit. ***** QUEST 5 Act like a MadCow: Lifting, it's my main thing at this moment, i love doing it, it's good for me, so i'm not planning on not doing it. It's here to stay in the foreseeable future. Maybe i'm gonna put a little more emphasize on doing more number of reps NEXT TO the heavy reps i'm doing now (just add some sort of cooldown sets after every workset, pyramid style workouts. If somebody has some ideas, please shoot! ***** QUEST 6 Find my Inner-Ape: I will be focusing on upperbody-bodyweight-exercises. Probably a lot of chin ups (no pull ups yet because of sore tendon on the outside of my elbow). Pushups and burpees will also be part of the program. (I'm slowly dreaming about doing the 300 workout). Next to this i'm focussing on deadhanging, but i'm gonna throw around the workout a little because it was getting a grind and i wasn't looking forward to it anymore. ***** QUEST 7 Stamina: Running is totally back in the game. After the run i did at work i just feel rejuvenated. If schedule allows i will be aiming for 2 runs a week, next to one workout at the gym. The workout at the gym really shakes up my workouts with stuff i normally don't train. ***** QUEST 8 Accountability: I need all of you beautiful people to keep me in line. I'm growing discipline by the day but it's a slow process. Every extra nudge is very welcome. This is the main reason for the existence of this thread, my sheet and all other aids i use. This quest is about the M in sMart, and the (first) S in kiSs (i've already got the the second S covered ). The Final Chapter
  2. QUEST 1 Maintain deficit: Adjusted a bit, removed an extra 100 KCAL/day. I gained a little weight during my vacation, and with summer season coming i'm preferring getting rid of the excess fat even it means i will lose some muscle in the progress. I want to get to that baseline! Plus i think it will benefit me greatly on the OCR, lowering my BW to maximize my efficiency on all those BW-exercises i will encounter there. QUEST 2 Keep up protein: Of course i will try to do my best to keep as much muscle as possible. I'm still doing lots of stuff to enhance my body and it needs the right kind of fuel, so protein is gonna be a big part of my diet. QUEST 3 Minimize beer input: I thought about removing this quest since i'm doing quite nice, except, seasons are changing. And well, next two seasons it's gonna be: "'Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la la la la la. Fill the meadcup, drain the barrel," So just to keep grinding-in this habit i'm gonna stick with it at least for the upcoming challenge(s). QUEST 4 MIndfully choose a meal: Just to keep as clean as possible i'm forcing myself to think (in advance) about every meal i eat. Easier to keep in line with the KCAL and better to fuel my body with the "best" option available. QUEST 5 Act like a MadCow: Lifting, it's my main thing at this moment, i love doing it, it's good for me, so i'm not planning on not doing it. It's here to stay in the foreseeable future. QUEST 6 Find my Inner-Ape: I will be focusing on upperbody-bodyweight-exercises. Probably a lot of chin ups (no pull ups yet because of sore tendon on the outside of my elbow). Pushups and burpees will also be part of the program. (I'm slowly dreaming about doing the 300 workout) QUEST 7 Stamina: Running has lost it's interest. Though i have entered myself in a run within this challenge (2,5 weeks). I entered the 12K (7.5 miles) on April 20th. I need the stamina, because the OCR has a distance of 19K (12 miles). So besides all the obstacles we also got a shitload of ground to cover. I need my stamina back! DST has kicked in, evenings are getting longer, weather is getting better, less excuses not to run. I'm even gonna go to my gym, and tune my subscription down from unlimited to once a week. This is better for my wallet, it's easier on my schedule, and it gives me more room to go running. QUEST 8 Accountability: I need all of you beautiful people to keep me in line. I'm growing discipline by the day but it's a slow process. Every extra nudge is very welcome. This is the main reason for the existence of this thread, my sheet and all other aids i use. This quest is about the M in sMart, and the (first) S in kiSs (i've already got the the second S covered ). ... Vacation hit in the 0-week, this was very welcome. I needed a break. Even without admitting it, i really needed it. Vacation was an excuse to let go. I didn't run (though i brought my apparel and clothing), i didn't lift (though i brought my dumbbell and about 50 lbs worth of small plates). Rest week, vacation, that's what it was. I ate everything i wanted, i drank everything i wanted. I did the thing i wanted to do, and more important, i didn't do the things i didn't felt like. 3 consecutive challenges worth of creating habits, i needed to let go. Vacation and 0 week merging into one week of "Frozen" (let it go!). Funny thing now, when looking back. What did i do during my 0 week / vacation. Drink some beer, but also no KCAL drinks beside that. Eat what everybody was eating, but always choosing the best option. Still no desserts / pastrie etc.The only thing i would have should have could have done better was refrain from chips and salty nuts, but that was hell-a-hard when you are playing cards and your drinking a few beers, and someones places a few dishes of those under your nose. Even though i was nowhere near as good as i have been on the last challenge i was also doing a decent job on a "let-it-go-type of week". I haven't weighed myself the first day when i came back, and was a bit off. Probably the start of a cold, but i deployed Plague Protocols at the first hint of it. No lifting, no running, just, rest. Last day of the vacation, the one where we drove home in the morning, i wasn't feeling all that great. (I think one of the more chilly/windy hikes has gotten to me) So when we got back home we had some things we had to check off. My nephews birthday, seeing my mom to tell about vacation and eating with the inlaws, to officially close the vacation and tell my BIL how the vacation was. After that it was lights out. Couch time for about 36 hours straight, with only two 8-hour breaks for sleeping in my bed. No eating, just drinking. Friday after dinner till sundaymorning was very passive. Sunday was a slow day, with it's highlight being a nice family party and a small tour on my bike (which is gonna be an added lifequest probably). So now my willpower-porgressbar has been overcharged by a fantastic 0-week/Vacation. Ready to kick some butt this challenge!
  3. These are my fingers after rock climbing today. Blood blisters from slipping off of a tiny, sharp hold. Typing isn't really fun at the moment. I'll be out of town for the weekend (hopefully) so I want to get this posted this week. I'm at a bit of a tricky spot where my fitness goals are really to put my training to work. I want to continue working out but I'm really more excited for some activities instead of more workouts. I've been really enjoying tracking things over that last few months and look forward to more of that. The attribute points aren't really doing much for me so I am going to table that idea for a while. Goal Number One - Putting the winter training to work. I really want to get out this spring and go rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, camping and/or mountaineering. This will be points based: Rock climbing will be based on completed pitches Top Rope Climb - 1 point Lead Sport Climb - 2 points Follow Trad Climb - 2 points Lead Trad Climb - 3 points Hiking is 1 point per mile Kayaking is 2 points per hour Camping is 5 points per night, 10 points for backpacking nights Mountaineering is 5 points for every 1000 feet climbed (either/or with hiking but not both) This will be graded on total points amassed. I'm not sure if this is ambitious or easy at this point. Points can always be adjusted to make it harder but I don't plan to adjust them down. Grading: 120 points - A, 80 points - B, 60 points - C, 40 points - D, <40 points - F Goal Number 2 - Do PT Every Day I tore my hamstring in January (which is why there is no running goal). It was mending but has slowed down. I'm just getting started with PT. I really want to get better so this is a priority. More so than any other strength training (which I have to remind myself). Grading: 90% - A, 85% - B, 80% - C, <80% - F Goal Number 3 - Zero Alcohol Pretty much what it says, no alcohol at all. If anyone wants to know more about this I'm happy to elaborate but here are the top three reasons I'm making this choice: decreased risk of causing trouble in life, decreased empty calories, grand experiment. Sips are OK to determine if someone is in fact drinking the best beer they have ever tasted. More than a sample sip is a fail. Grading: <1 drink - Pass, 1+ drinks - F Goal Number 4 - Core Workouts I want to keep this goal from last time. For both fitness and appearance reasons, I'd like to develop my core muscles. I'll do this workout twice per week for a total of 12 workouts with one "miss" allowed. I'll take progress pics to see how effective this is. As an added twist to last time, each week I must increase the difficulty of one or more of the base workout components. Initial Core Workout 1 min plank 1 min right side plank 1 min plank 1 min left side plank 1 min plank 3x15 second L-Sit on Rings 3x10 Crow Pushups Knee to Same Elbow 3x10 Crow Pushups Knee to Opposite Elbow 3x15 Pushups Grading: 11 Workouts - A, 9 Workouts - B, 7 Workouts - C, <7 - F Goal Number 5 - House Projects There are a lot of projects which need to be completed. My goal is to check four of these off of the list. New projects can be added to the list as long as they are necessary and of equal size. Install dishwasher Caulk/spackle window trim Paint gym Kitchen floor Kitchen/bathroom shelves framing Bathroom demo Kitchen/fridge wiring Gym/storage wiring Grading: 4+ projects - A, 3 projects - B, <3 projects - F
