The Start of my journey


Recommended Posts

hello everyone
My aim is to before june time to become like a Assassin/Monk type shape and abilites
But before i aim at the specifics i need a base fitness
i would class my race as half-ogre (overweight but not Extremely)

my goals for the next 6 weeks are;
Follow the Paleo Diet (as close as i can in a boarding school enviorment and have breaks on weekends) "http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2010/10/04/the-beginners-guide-to-the-paleo-diet
be able to do 20 pullups ( max 0.5 reediting this i think this will be impossible in 6 weeks, but ill leave it on there and give it a try)
be able to do 25 parallel bar dips http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2011/03/24/assassins-creed/ current max unknown 
and be able to do 10 pressups (max about 1 or 2)

this seams like not much, but i thought i might start off easy(ish) then work from there

Update 1;
Day 0.5

i realised how hard it is going to be,especially the diet, this was mainly because alot of food i used to eat is banned still i can get though this,

Update 2;
Day 1
going well to start with (minus the set back of illness) eating alot more fruit compared to what i used to, mind you temptation was kicking in alot, still mind over matter


Update 2.5;

Day 1 (still)

This is going to be EXTREMELY HARD, have cravings like mad to go in to town and break my diet goal, i didn't, but steves advice of weekend off week days on ill still take but not undo all my work through the week


Update 3;

Day 2 

today was a good day, my cravings are less, i feel better about myself, however, i did break the diet due to the fact that school tea was EITHER Mac and cheese or Mushroom and Stake pie, so kind of screwed that for today (i would of perfered something else trust me the food here is crap) but i have be cutting out all the other crap  and eat fruit instead of biscuits, been doing daily night time exercises  this is good and makes me feel better, but still i am less than 5 percent near completion of the 6 weeks so still a long effort to go, still, i think this could be the start of something new and something big, a huge change to ME :D

Then, maybe 20 pullup is a little optimistic, but you may as well prove me wrong :) . Are you using the 20 pullups plan? I know that several of us are following/ followed it with some successes.

I like the 20 pull ups program, but I've personally gotten. Way more results from pavel's fighter pull up program: http://www.kbnj.com/FighterPullupByPavel.htm

you could take a look at both and see what feels better for you. There are also a few more programs out there (Armstrong, ect) but the main point is to choose ONE program that you like and stick to it, at least for one whole six week challenge, preferably longer.

I second that 20 in six weeks might be a bit much. But you never know!

It's not a failure if you kept on following the diet. It's a mere sidetracking! Don't be too harsh with yourself, sidetracking happens what's important is not to give up and go back on track as soon as possible :)

Nuala's got the right of it.  Side tracking is going to happen, the key is to get back on track as soon as possible.  We're all human, Dude, perfect execution is possible, but it's not going to be the norm.  Especially when you are beginning a program that aims at changing "bad" habits...you're literally fighting yourself every step of the way.


I'll chime in with the rest, 20 pullups is setting the bar high, I know, I did the same goal last challenge.  Didn't make it, but did a lot of pullups on the way.  It's still on the long term agenda, just not the priority that it once was.  Consider being open to adjusting your goals should your priorities change.


Welcome to the club, looking forward to your posts:)
