  1. In my last challenge I realized my legalism about sticking to barbell workouts was holding me back. With my current work schedule the way it is I don't feel like I have time to lift (I could make the time, but it would take more willpower than I'm willing to expend) and lately I haven't been. By letting go of powerlifting for the time being, I can give myself permission to do other kinds of strength training. That way they are the goal and not a concession. I'm going to do a mix of bodyweight and kettlebell workouts. Yoga is still going to be around because I feel better when I'm flexible. Int
  2. Last night I decided what my goals are going to be for this challenge. I'm still working on meeting all the required reps and time of the Beginner Body Weight Workout. So that's my Main Quest: to perfect the Beginner Body Weight Workout (BBWW). To do this, I will practice the BBWW workout 3x a week. Measurement: working out 3x each week: STR +7. Working out mostly 3x, but sometimes 2x: STR +6. Working out mostly 2x but occasionally 3x: STR +5. Quest 2: Participate in the Rebellion. To do this I will update my challenge thread 3x a week and participate in the Guild Mini's. I will also partic

  4. Side quest: to write all updates to this challenge thread while in-character. _______ Fewer trees on the horizon allowed more light to reach the forest floor, which signaled the last half-mile of road before Granny Nogg would see the walls of the city. Ankh-Morpork was a bustling, multicultural and multispecies metropolis, home to the Unseen University, the Guilds, and the famed City Watch. 'Ahhh', Granny Nogg thought to herself as she passed the open wooden gates and nodded to the Watch officer on duty. 'I've missed ye, Ankh-Morpork.' The city would be home for the next six weeks, and the
  5. Introduction Hello all, my name’s Secra. I am a level 0 Dwarf who is excited for her first challenge. When I started school in the fall I weighed about 210-215lbs, and have since put on more than the “freshman 15†(current weight: 243lbs). Most of my day is spent sitting down learning or studying, so incorporating more movement (or any really) into my routine is important. A majority of the weight that I gained was due to stress eating and study snacking, so making the move to a healthier diet will be key to helping me lose the weight (and feel better in general!). One of my study buddi
  6. Hey all. I'll start off with my breakfast and workout for today, the 2nd of July, 2014. I woke up this morning and did the Beginner Body Weight Workout. I can only do 2 cycles before I absolutely die. Well, it's not quite that drastic, but it's still a solid workout, and I have something to move toward. Stretching afterward, and now I feel great. One thing I have noticed (now that i'm three weeks along, even though this is my first diary entry) is that my posture and daily energy is generally improved by my exercises. A big plus, seeing as I'm going to start playing tennis for sport soon, an

  8. YESTERDAY (3/25) C25k Wk7 Day 1 1.46 miles, 18:05 min/mile, 26.21 consecutive minutes (I was feeling good, so I kept going after the 25 minute mark) TODAY (3/26) EXERCISE First stab at the beginner body weight tutorial. I didn't realize how long it would take, so I only left time for one circuit. I was really surprised at how hard it was, too. I am more out of shape than I thought. Didn't warm up enough, either. Next time, I'll run through a sun salutation first. body weight squats: 20 (pain in the right knee . . . maybe it will go away as I get stronger?)(bent-knee) push ups: 7lunges:
  9. When I was 20 my left hip/lower back were injured in a game of Red Rover, and over the years I had been subconsciously favouring that side of my body and now it is significantly weaker than my right side. I've been doing the Beginner Body Weight Workout for the past three weeks and noticed that if I'm not paying attention my body shifts itself to take weight off the left side when I'm doing squats. Today, while I was going through my second set of squats, my body shifted and I hurt my hip/back. I don't want my progress to be affected by this, so I was wondering if there other exercises I could
  10. My goal for this week was to incorporate ONE set of the BBWW. I finished one (granted, wall pushups, so I did 20 and not 10, and creaky knees, so my form wasn't 90 degrees), and I wasn't dead, so I did another. I STILL wasn't dead, so I finished the third. THREE SETS! I stretched VERY carefully afterward, but even if I am totally immobile tomorrow it will have been worth it I. ROCK!

  12. Hello! I just did the Beginner Body Weight Workout for the first time yesterday. I was able to make it through the whole three circuits (I am definitely sore today though). My question is... the whole three circuits only took me 15 minutes to complete. I feel like I should be doing more, time-wise. Maybe it's because I'm used to my workouts being 40-80 minutes of cardio? I was planning on doing this workout three times a week with some walking in between. My goal is weight loss. Any advice?
  13. No, I don't have an amazingly awesome introduction like some of the kick-ass ones I've read already, and I can't zoom out enough to make this like a game quite yet (I'll get there... my background story for my half-orcishness is already written ;D)... but I'm really getting serious about this... and for me, getting serious is something to take note of. > SO LISTEN UP FOLKS! < Goals: Fitness: Perform the Beginner Body Weight Workout (BBWW) 2-3 times per week. a. Complete 3 BBWWs per week for all 6 weeks (total of 18 workouts) and gain the achievement “Fitness Achiever (Rank 1)†(yup
