WhiteBeltBrowncoat Posted August 13, 2018 Report Share Posted August 13, 2018 WhitebeltBrowncoat Respawns Hi all, It's been a while since I have done one of these challenges, and the first time doing one with the Rangers. Here's a bit of background about me. I just turned 34, am married, and have an 8-year old Mini-Browncoat. The wife and I have decided that we need to get healthy. I did a handful of challenges with the Monks, did one with the Assassins, and now thought I would give the Rangers a try. Major Goal: Lose 60 Pounds Right now I'm tipping the scales at 245. Not the heaviest I've ever been, but getting close. My goal weight is 185. I was active throughout high school and college (swam, played water polo, roller hockey, and was a gym rat at the climbing gym), but after college, life got in the way and sports and activities have dwindled to nothing and the weight crept on. No better time than now to change this. Here is how I'm planning on doing this... Since you can't outrun your fork: The wife and I are going to start Whole30. This isn't going to be easy. Early preparation is going to be key for us to complete this. The plan will be to break this out by week and have a full meal plan done. That way we can prep everything in advance. We aren't starting Whole30 today, but it will be during this challenge. I'll let you all know when it does begin. Declutter the house: We have too much crap around the house. We finally made a space to exercise, but we really need to get rid of all the extra crud. Finish Cleaning the Office, Bedroom. Also, come up with a good cleaning schedule for the house and stick to it. Exercise: Simple and sinister — I got a 16kg kettlebell for Christmas, but haven't done a whole lot with it yet. I am going to do the Simple and Sinister routine three times a week. I jumped in a little too enthusiastically a couple months back and tweaked my shoulder doing Turkish Get Ups. This time around I am going to approach these more cautiously. I am thinking that instead of doing all 10 getups with the 16kg, I should start with a lighter weight; a 1-gallon water jug (~4kg) to start, then a 3 gallon (~11kg), then the 16kg kettlebell once everything feels good. Miscellaneous Life Goals: Get better at brushing and flossing. Brush twice a day, floss once a day. I've been avoiding going to the dentist because I know I will get scolded for not brushing and flossing as well as I should. Thanks for having me here. TLDR: GOAL: Lose 60 pounds STEPS: *Whole30 Meal Plans/Start Whole30 *Simple and Sinister 3x per week *Finish Cleaning the Office *Finish Cleaning the Bedroom *Create Cleaning Schedule *Brush 2x and Floss 1x per day 3 Quote WhiteBeltBrowncoat | Four-week Challenge 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | Current Goal: Weigh 238 lbs by 10/14/2018 SW(201809112):245.9 / CW(201800917):244.2 Think Progress, Not Perfection Link to comment
