GrÃ¼ÃŸe aus London! So my last challenge was ok, though I ran it over into the â€˜spareâ€™ week due to several over-calorie days that I wasnâ€™t really allowed. I managed to stick to the other parts of it though and came out with a C+ and levelled up Iâ€™ve also managed to lose a couple of lbs and a couple of cms off my belly, I think mainly from the walkings (243 total miles) and dumbbells rather than the excessive chocolate eating (you think?) This challenge, which Iâ€™ll be doing for nearly eight weeks, up to the point I go to NEW YORK CITY BABY on 6th June, will have the following goals: Eatings Now that Iâ€™m within 15lb of my goal (can I get a huzzah?!) Iâ€™m switching up the cals to mfp â€˜lose 0.5lb per weekâ€™ and still adding exercise calories. Iâ€™m going to work this a bit differently this time, rather than allowing myself a certain number of days off for the challenge, Iâ€™m going to allow myself a day off if Iâ€™ve totted up over 1000 spare calories in consecutive days. So if Monday â€“ Friday Iâ€™ve been at least 200 cals under goal, I can have an off-counting day on Saturday. Iâ€™m hoping this will stop me splurging with all the extra 240 calories per day mfp will give me! Walkings The walking challenge of at least 20 miles in any consecutive 7 days seems to be working well so Iâ€™m going to do that again. Iâ€™ll get a bonus though if the average miles per day is above 5 (can you tell Iâ€™ll be monitoring this in excel again?!) Dumbbells Iâ€™m enjoying the dumbbells again, though my last challenge being 3 in any consecutive 7 days meant I HAD to do Monday, Wednesday, Friday every week (dâ€™uh!) so Iâ€™m changing this to: Three workouts a week (Mon-Sun) which can either be my dumbbell set of 3x10 bicep curls, military press and bench press (with 2x10kg dumbbells) followed by 1 min plank, OR the beginner bodyweight workout (particularly useful for when I donâ€™t have the dumbbells) Following this challenge I will then undo all my good work by spending a week eating my bodyweight in starch, dairy and alcohol products in NYC, huzzah! Yours ever truly Silmarilliane
