Past attempts to challenges in NerdFitness led to dissapointment and failure on my side. This was due to having no time because of a grueling internship, my work, my study and excercising. I simply had no time to get on here and check in every day. 
Since my last challenge i passed my internship which frees up a lot of time! After some thinking i realised that NerdFitness is brought me a lot of great things and that i find it a waste that i didn't show up annymore. New year, new challenge, new me. 
So starting this new year i will get back to NerdFitness. 
In order for this to be succesfull i will need week write ups, clear goals and some community interaction.

 

Goals 1st january to 4th february
These are related to my general health, challeges i set for myself or community interaction.

 

Go vegetarian
For this challenge i will go vegetarian for a month. In order to experience vegetarianism but also to force myself to eat more veggies and fruits. 
 

Reporting results
One of my big issues is accountability. I tried to counter this in the past challenge, this worked for a while but after that it faded.
Starting january first i will pickup on the accountability aspect again by sending weekly weight updates to a friend. 
Since there is a health issue with my weight i set a prety steep goal of 1 kilo per week. If i do not hit this goal i will have to do extra excercise the folowing week in the form of half an hour a day walks on top of my regiment.

 

Managing the budget
One of my biggest issues is that i go to the shops to often and pick up to many shit. In order to counter this i am allowed to go to the shops twice a week. No more. If i miss something, well that is shit for me. 

 

Diary
In order to stay engaged to the commmunity i will have to write weekly progress reports on my thread.

I hope some of you will stick around!

I get there being a health issue and I know it's safe for some people to lose 1kg per week, but you might want to be careful with this one. There are a lot of things that can impact weight loss, and adding exercise to punish yourself for not meeting this kind of goal seems kind of counterproductive. (If you don't mean it as a punishment, I apologize. That's how I read it based on your phrasing.)

punnishment probably isn't the right word for it. It is more extra effort, to make sure i hit the goal the next time.
it is important for my general health to get some weight down quickly. After i dropped some weight this one is definitly going to get redifined into something long term more succesfull.

So I learned this the hard way, but if you don't plan things out, being vegetarian doesn't automatically mean more veggies and fruits. (I'm actually still working on upping my fruits and veggies and I've been vegetarian for awhile now...)

I'm with @fleaball on this. You can't completely control how fast (or how linear) the weight will go down. It might not be a punishment, but how much weight you can safely lose quickly depends on a lot of things, so at the end of the day it's really important to listen to your body. You don't want to get too carried away and end up hurting yourself!

Lists will be your friend here! Make a list, stick to the list, don't buy anything that's not on your list. Lists of places to go! Lists of things to get! Lists of lists!

Yeah i still owe you this one. Thanks for reminding me!

Last week in general
All in all it wasn't a bad week. We went to the movies. Instead of my usual order af a M popcorn and a coke i got a bottle of water and an S popcorn. I also got a new activity tracker Samsung gear fit 2 pro. My fitbit charge 2 broke, so did the girlfriends. We decided to upgrade and so far i am happy with it. The samsung one is water resistant and has gorilla glas. This means OCR tracking gear! 
if any of you use S-health be sure to add me!

 

Go vegetarian
This one is going great so far, no issues whatsoever. Only once i had a craving for shrimp due to a co worker eating a shrimp salad. After that not really any cravings for meat.

 

Reporting results

I forgot the reporting report, but i did lose weight, So 50% passed

 

Managing the budget
This one has failed, i went to the store 3 times this week. So i failed this one.
This was due to stress nd actually forgetting some key aspects for dinner

 

all in all some good points, but defintly room for improvement.

How was your week, Rab?

Last week in general
It was a good week. Since my classes have ended till february i have some sparetime that i put into doing extra shifts at work. This wil result in some extra money to spend next month. Besides that not much noteworthy has happened.

 

Go vegetarian
Still going strong on this one! 

 

Reporting results

Still no reporting and i didn't lose weight.

I think this has to do with a fear of being judged. I should work with this, step over this boundary.

 

Managing the budget
This one actually went really well, i only went to the stores 2 times this week. SO win on this one!

Probably :D What would you need me to do?

It is actually really simple.
I need someone to keep me accountable for my progress.
I have to sent an update on my weightloss, and show i made significant progress. For me this is a kilo per week.
If i did this everything is fine, if i did not there is a motivator to boost the progress for next weeks measuring.
This motivator is Adding half an hour of excercise on top of what i normaly do on a daily base. This is stackable though.
For example i could do nothing on monday but that would mean i have to do the monday excercise on another day before the week is over.

I would basicaly report in these extra excercise to you guys, if i do not report you guys buzz me about it.

Count me in.  How often to you plan to post your progess?  Daily?

Weekly, daily updates on losing weight would be unresponsible. To much stress on micro losses.

 

Glad to have you aboard! Ill sent you a pm in the yakshead with some more info.

That makes sense.  I was confused whether you meant you were reporting on your daily activity aimed at losing weight or on actual weigh ins.

I'm on board for some Rab ass kicking too. Let's go! 


No asskicking this week since i lost 1.2 Kilos this week!

General overview

In general last week felt like a good week. I was in a good mental space. I did bruise my ankle and due to that didn't excercise the same ammount. I also ate more calories than i should.
On my weekend job i officialy became a offroad driving instructor. 

It is basically preventing people from doing this

Go vegetarian

Almost no issues here, no cravings for meat or annything. One slight fail here is that on sunday i went for shakes with my sister and she ordered a peanut butter milkshake for me with bacon bits in it. As soon as i realized this due to taste i was already halfway through the shake. So i got some accidental meat there.

Reporting results

I reported in and lost weight. I think the doodlie group i have specifical for this is a good thing.

 

Managing the budget

I really dropped the ball here. I think i went to the shops at least 1 time a day. Oops
Respawning on this one today.
