The Less Challenge


Recommended Posts

I was definitely just looking for your jersey, if you changed I probably looked right past you :tongue:




Saturday's game was good, even though we lost. It was great to actually play again! I have a couple of lovely bruises from cleats, but other than that and a few bumps I emerged unscathed :) I can tell I was clenching my jaw a lot though, chewing is kinda difficult :tongue: I also got lifted for lineouts for the first time ever (missed the last practice cause of work), which was fun.


I can't believe the challenge ends tomorrow, the last 6 weeks have flown by!


ETA: Got another cold. The joys of dealing with the general public, # 1214

Goal 1: Less Missed Days!

  • Run 3x per week - having rugby practice will definitely help meet this one! +3 STA - did 14/18 runs, for a B+ and +2.25 STA
  • Lift 3x per week - this is where I fell down on the last challenge. Gonna make an effort to hit 100% this time around. +3 STR - changed this to 2x per week. In total I did 9/14 for a C and 1.5 STR. Not nearly as well as I wanted. I need to start getting my butt in gear and going before work on the days that going afte isn't an option because I work too late.


Goal 2: Less Missed Sleep!

  • Minimum 8 hours per night. I need my sleep, and this is something I need to do. If I have to, I can sleep in the basement if I've had a late night so that noise/light won't wake me up. +3 CON  - I got 8 hours of sleep on 37/42 nights, for an A and +3 CON


Goal 3: Less Fat!

  • This one is pretty self explanatory. I want to lose the last bit of fat hanging around on my belly/hips/thighs. According to MyFitnessPal I can eat 1350 calories a day and still lose a pound a week, I just have to figure out what I should be eating to go along with the how much. So step 1 will be learning what to do, step 2 will be doing it. Point will be awarded for eating the way I should and tracking it on MFP. +2 CHA +1 WIS - Decided on limit carbs, had varied success. Goal was a bit vague, but I ate well, if sometimes too much, 38/42 days for an A+, +2 CHA and +1 WIS


Goal 4: Less Stuff!

  • I want to continue decluttering my life. I have a bad habit of hanging onto things I don't need and don't use. This week I went through my closet, tried everything on, and got rid of a bunch of stuff. I have to do the same with my t-shirts and tanks in my dresser, and I want to just generally have less 'stuff' lying around. To make this measurable I'll commit to doing at least 45 minutes of work on my to-do list per day, or 5 1/4 hours per week. +1 CON +1 WIS +1 CHA - Did 1695/1890 minutes of work, for an A+, and +1 each for CON, WIS, and CHA.
