Goal One 2 STR 3 STA Three strength training and three cardio sessions per week. I've made some good progress recently. I'm going to switch out one arm knee push-ups for full one arm push-ups at some point in this challenge, hopefully by the second week. I'm also hoping to progress up to full pistol squats. Goal Two 1 STA 3 DEX Practice martial arts and do yoga six days per week. Goal Three 3 CON Track macronutrients and stay at or under 2,250 calories per day. Will be trying to reduce carb intake for this challenge. No points toward it but I'd like to eat no more than 100 grams per day. Goal Four 2 WIS 1 CHA Write at least one poem and 500 words per week. This goal may change depending on circumstances.
of the questions of these recurring, Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill'd with the foolish, Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?)Of eyes that vainly crave the light, of the objects mean, of the struggle ever renew'd, Of the poor results of all, of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me, Of the empty and useless years of the rest, with the rest me intertwined, The question, O me! so sad, recurring -- What good amid these, O me, O life?Answer. That you are here -- that life exists and identity, That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse. The first thing I thought when I first came here was, "What if I drown amidst this gargantuan forum?". So many posts and threads bombarded my sight, it feels daunting to even start lurking here. Then this poem popped into my head. It portrays how I currently feel quite accurately and reminds me that as vast as life or this forum may be and as insignificant as I may feel in the face of it, I can still contribute something of myself and that makes all the difference. So hello, how are you and do you happen to love "Dead Poets Society"? Because that is my ultimate favourite movie ever. Omgletsgushaboutitplease. And you, whoever you are, strolling around the Introduction forums, be it other newbies like me who are looking to feel less alone in this huge place or regulars who enjoy greeting fresh bloods, I just think that you must be a very warm, friendly individual or in a serious need of collecting good karma. Now I should probably share my health goals. Its been a long while since I last checked my measurements and last I remember it was 143 lbs, 4'9". I aim to lose 2 pounds 4 weeks from now. I know, I know, I'm starting small. I've done the beginner's bodyweight workout twice this week and I jog 20 - 40 minutes 3 times per week. So I'm not concerned about staying loyal to my exercise routines...it's my diet that I'm devastated with. I live with my family and we eat a lot of carbs and never enough vegetables. I ate a slice of pizza for dinner last night for goodness sake! I need a buddy to pair up with and help keep me disciplined on eating healthier. Anyone want to be my diet buddy? Would be a bonus if you're a (South East) Asian like myself since you'll understand my palate. I'm planning on cooking for myself more and more often so I can control my nutrition and calorie intake. Also, anyone else use myfitnesspal as a daily food journal? Let me know so we can add each other and learn what good things to eat. For those of you struggling to manage a healthy diet like me, holler at me and could you please tell me how you improve your situation? 'tis a pleasure to meet everyone!
Third Challenge here on the forums first with the Assassins. The reason for the titlle is that Rock Lee is my favorite Naruto character and I find his story extremely inspiring.Now on to the goals Goal One A Shinobe has to be physically fit in order to carry out his missions. For this constent training is required. My goal for this challenge is to do something active every day exept Sundays. This can range from something as simple as a walk to a knock down drag out multi hour workout. Some sub goals I would like to reach are Three strength workouts each week with a focas on body weight Three cardio workouts per week Atleast one hour of martial arts practice per week Be able to do one arm pushups by the end of the challenge Be able to do one of my favorite bodyweight circuits 10 times through with no rest Be able to run for 20 minutes straight. Goal Two It is never known what a mission will entitle thus one must train for great muscular endurance as well as strength. This goal is to try to do 500 reps of a bodyweight exercise in a single workout over the fewest sets possible. The rough schedule for this is Week One. Squats Week Two. Pushups Week Three. Situps Week Four. Bench Dips(My triceps are my weakest body part thus I'm training them here) Week Five. Lunges(My triceps are followed closely by my legs) Week Six. Pullups(These are last because I have the most work to do on them) Goal Three With all the training and fighting a ninja needs to make sure his body is properly fueled. I'm going to try counting calories and hopefully be a bit more consistent with my eating habits since in my last challenge I would eat anywhere from 500(I forget to eat if I'm wrapped up in something) to probably over 10,000(It was my grandparants anniversary, we took them out to Golden Corral). Life Goal It's imperative that one be able to blend in and communicate wherever one may be. Learn two new words in Spanish every day. So thats my Rock Lee challenge. I'll post scoring and all later including a rough schedule. I've decided that if I score 90% or higher on all goals that I'll change my name on the forum since I've had some people tell me that my current one is hard to pronounce.
