Becoming Batgirl


Batgirl

Recommended Posts

This is my second challenge.  The first challenge went awesomely so this will mostly be more of the same.

 

Main Quest:

Lose 72 pounds.  Starting weight is 211 so that would put me at 139.  This goal doesn't have a time limit.

 

Side Quest #1

Exercise like a maniac!!! The goal is to work out 6 days per week.  2 of those days will be heavy lifting, 1 day will be a cardio/weight circuit and 3 days will be cardio (usually step aerobics).  I'll be grading myself for each week and taking the average at the end. (STR 2, STA 2, DEX 1)

   A. 6 workouts

   B. 5

   C. 4

   D. 2-3

   F. <=1

 

Side Quest #2

Diet!  I'll be breaking this one up into a few goals (CON 3, WIS 2)

1. Eat 1800 calories or less per day.  In order to keep track, I need to maintain my diet log (myfitnesspal)

2. All the way vegan.  I've been toying with it forever and the healthiest I've ever been was when I was vegan.  It's time to do it for real.

3. NO FRENCH FRIES! Seriously my favorite food but complete garbage nutrition-wise.  I had some after the last challenge ended and I'm ready to go another 6 weeks.

4. Drink more water! I'm setting a goal of 64 ounces a day, not counting whatever water I drink during my workout.

I'll be grading myself for each day and taking the average at the end.

    A. All 4 goals met

    B. 3 goals

    C. 2 goals

    D. 1 goal

    F. 0 goals

Side note: Since Thanksgiving is during this challenge, I'm not going to worry about calories for that one day so long as I meet all of my other goals.

 

Life Quest

Sewing! I've got 3 projects I'd like to get done in the 6 weeks. (CHA 3, DEX 2)

1. Revisions on my husband's Star Wars Imperial Officer uniform.  This is a carryover from last challenge.  I finished the uniform right after last challenge but after wearing it for a day at Tucson Comic Con, we've decided I need to make some changes. 

2. My Batgirl costume!  I wasn't planning to make it until closer to SDCC next year but after our costuming group didn't have a single Bat at Tucson Comic Con (Batman had to work, Batgirl couldn't drive down from Phoenix), I decided to start now.  I want to have it ready to wear by Amazing Arizona Comic-con in January. 

3. My daughter wants to make an Attack on Titan costume so I'm going to help her with that.  It won't be a ton of sewing so I think I can squeeze it in.

   A. All 3 projects complete

   B. 2 projects complete

   C. 1 project complete

   F. 0 projects complete

 

Motivation: I want to be fit and healthy and be a good example for my family.  Also I want to rock a Batgirl costume at San Diego Comic Con next year.

Great goals. The sewing sounds tedious, but I'm not much for sewing so I don't know how tough it is.

Do we get a preview of the batgirl before he SDCC debut?

Absolutely! Although it'll probably look better on me in June than it will in January :)

VEGAN?!?! You're a mad woman.

 

I loved the Court of Owls photo that you posted on twitter. That was super super cool! Definitely looking forward to what you do with a BatGirl costume :)

I'm a time traveler, but I can only go one way and only a second at a time.

I'm already pretty close. Just gotta lose the cheese and the occasional breakfast burrito. Cheese is the devil. So many calories in such a small package.

What's your level of fitness prior to this?  I only ask because if you were exercising once a week and then kick it into 6 days a week, you're body is going to not be able to handle a huge change. If you usually do 4 times prior, then 6 would be a boost, but doable.  Many times I've gotten motivated enough to hit the gym 6-7 days a week and then fizzle out after 2 weeks because it's just way too much to handle.

 

And we have a batgirl AND batwoman?  awesomesauce.

I've been exercising like a maniac for a while now. 6 days a week is what I'm doing now.

Your challenge looks pretty awesome, also dig the costuming/sewing goals. I recently joined up the Mandalorian Mercs so I need to start cracking on a costume for that, is your hubby a part of the 501st? (I only ask due to the imperial uniform).

 

I hope you're planning on doing the 60's purple costume, I don't know why but that just stands out as my favorite Batgirl outfit.

 

Just keep in mind for your stats, I believe you can only max out at 5 points total per goal, so you might want to readjust your point assignments a little bit.

 

Good luck, can't wait to see a heroic challenge in Gotham.

I thought it was 15 points total.  I'll have to look at how the points work again. 

 

My husband has submitted his application to the 501st but he hasn't heard back yet.  I'm doing this batgirl from a couple of years ago:

Yeah it's 15 points total, but only a max of 5 points per goal (I know, it's a bit wacky 80P).

 

That Batgirl doesn't look too bad though, but her hair is not nearly red enough 80P.

There's always Phoenix comic con. That one's usually Memorial Day weekend but I think next year it's in June.

Well, it's a good thing I don't officially start this challenge till monday because I did a bad thing this morning (just now).  Someone brought doughnuts to work.  And not just any doughnuts.  Seriously the best doughnuts on the planet.  They almost never get brought in and the doughnut shop is super far away from my house so it's not like I get a lot of chances to have one so I had a chocolate cake doughnut.  AND IT WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT!  One of the most delicious things I've ever put in my mouth.  At least I did a lot of cardio this morning.
