Nightrunner's First Challenge

Recommended Posts

I finally registered on this site after lurking around for a while and I'm ready for my first challenge. My three goals for the next six weeks are:


Goal 1 Work out six times a week (±30 mins).

I already run three times a week, but I'd like to add some beginner strength training by starting with Level 1 (Rookie) of the Rebel Fitness Guide. So, cardio (running, or any alternative that gets my heart rate up) on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday; body strength on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Saturday = rest.



A ) 36 workouts

B ) 30 workouts

C ) 26 workouts
D ) <26 workouts


Goal 2 Eat paleo and say no to temptation!

When I'm alone, it's no problem to eat healthy. Sure, I have my cravings every now and then, but as long as I don't buy stuff I shouldn't eat, I don't have access to it and I don't eat it. Simple. But then I go out for dinner with friends, or I visit my (grand)parents for a few days - and my willpower just evaporates, whoosh. I made some "guidelines" for myself with foods I can eat occasionally and stuff I really have to avoid right now. For the next six weeks, I want to eat 100% paleo four days a week, and have some "occasional" indulgences during the rest of the week (but no foods that are on the "avoid list"!).



A ) 24 paleo days; no food from the "avoid list"

B ) 21 paleo days; no food from the "avoid list"

C ) 18 paleo days; no food from the "avoid list"

D ) <18 paleo days and/or any food from the "avoid list"


Goal 3 Learn how to play five songs on the ukulele.

My boyfriend gave me a ukulele for Christmas. Fantastic gift, the only problem is that I have no idea how to play it - and somehow I never make time to learn. By the end of the next six weeks, I want to be able to play five (simple) songs. I have a book with information on different chords and finger positions, so I'll start studying this week...



A ) 5 songs

B ) 4 songs
C ) 3 songs
D ) <3 songs


I have several documents, spreadsheets and apps on my laptop and phone that I use to save pictures, body measurements, weight, food log, etc. I will not post it here, but rest assured that I'm keeping track of my progress!


Good luck everyone. :D

Great goals! It's so nice to have a support system in your partner! Is your username from the Flewelling novels?

Ukuleles are awesome. I learnt a lot of stuff from ukehunt and scorpex.


Also, if you're willing to wait a little before playing songs, ask professor Google to find 'Uncle Rod's Ukulele Boot Camp'. Its a drill based ukulele learning technique which gets you moving across the fretboard.
