Hazard posted a topic in Level 1 / First Time ChallengersWelcome to my 4 Week Challenge thread. I'm not new to NF. If you're a Level 1, then I'm your Guild Leader. My 4 Week Challenge is posted in this Level 1 subforum in the hope that you seeing how I format and organize my Challenge might help give you ideas for your own. My Main Quest presently is to... Drop bodyweight. At least 1 lb per week. My Support Quests for this challenge Keep getting on the treadmill daily. 5k minimum distance. Eat no more than 1800 calories daily. (I'm tracking via MyFitnessPal). About Me My Muggle name is Chris. I'm a 41 yr old sort-of-retired guy happily at home being the primary caregiver for my daughter. Which is the Best. Job. Ever. The pay is non-existent, but the benefit package is fantastic and calls me "Daddy." Which is the most awesome word that's ever been invented, and if you disagree, then dishonor on your cow. In my recent-ish fitness history ---> from August 2017 through April 2018 I completed a Walk to Mordor. Eight straight months of daily walking, during which I covered the 1700+ miles that it's estimated Frodo and Sam walked from Hobbiton to Mt. Doom. It started off slow, but as my feet toughened up all Hobbity-like I was able to put in more and more miles per day. My daughter still slept most of the day back then, which gave me a lot of time to walk. But as she's gotten older, she sleeps less during the day. When she's awake, my focus is on her. Which means as she's gotten older, I've had less and less time for exercising. In order to get those wonderful calorie-burning miles done with less time, I've had to do them faster. To do that, I started jogging some. My time on the treadmill is split into jogging/walking intervals. I always have my ipad on the treadmill's shelf in front of me. Usually watching music videos on Youtube. The music helps keep my energy up and keep me from getting bored. I also entertain myself further during the walk intervals by doing dumbbell curls and dumbbell overhead presses. Which makes me kinda feel like I'm in an action-oriented video game, doing my 'moves' on the go. Keeping the nerd in Nerd Fitness.
