Hello Everybody!

 

Here I am with Challenge number 8! I'm thinking of trying out something new with my scoring this time through, so let's check it out.

 

MAIN CHALLENGE

As for the past few challenges, I've been saying "Look awesome in a Kilt for my wedding day" I'm going to say that's still the goal but I want to be more specific. I hope to hit around 180 lbs by the wedding date of 09/20/2014. That's a weight loss of around 40 lbs, might be a bit much so I won't be devastated if I don't reach it, but that's the dream. (Copypasta is my friend...80P)

 

MOTIVATION

The motivation is the hope to see the looks and reactions of everyone when the see me in the best shape of my life standing up at the infamous altar. Not to mention the increase capability, improved emotional state, and other benefits from the healthier life.

 

SUB-QUESTS

 

Quest 1 - Dietary Destruction!: Avoid Cereal Grains, Dairy, and Potatoes (sweet/regular) [CON:4]

Upgraded From the last challenge to include the potatoes, time to own it again.

 

A+: No Cheats For All Six Weeks (Bonus 1 CON)

A: 1 Cheat A Week For Four Weeks

B: 2 Cheats a Week for Four  Weeks

C: 3 Cheats a Week for Four Weeks

D:  3 Cheats a Week for Six Weeks

F: >3 Cheats a Week

 

Quest 2 - Sack the Snacks: Cut out the snacking again [CON:2]

I cut out snacking in challenge 5, but allowed it back in 6. I think it's a big part of my current plateau, hoping that cutting them out will help going forward.

 

A+: No Cheats For All Six Weeks (Bonus 1 CON)

A: 1 Cheat A Week For Four Weeks

B: 2 Cheats a Week for Four  Weeks

C: 3 Cheats a Week for Four Weeks

D:  3 Cheats a Week for Six Weeks

F: >3 Cheats a Week

 

Quest 3 - Bodyweight Bonanza: Perform NF's Beginner Bodyweight Workout Routine at least 2x a week [STR: 2|STA:1]

Continuing my attempts to get my exercise habit, heading back the beginner bodyweight routine that I tried many many challenges ago, hopefully it'll stick this time.

 

A+: Exercise 3x a week for all 6 weeks (Bonus 1 STA)

A: Exercise 2x a week for all 6 weeks

B: Exercise 2x a week for 5 weeks

C. Exercise 2x a week for 4 weeks

D. Exercise 2x a week for 3 weeks

F. Exercise 2x a week for >3 weeks

 

SIDE QUEST

 

Side Quest -  Shivering Showers: Complete Cold Shower 30 Day Challenge [CON: 2]

Attempt to do the 30 Day Cold Shower Challenge again, this has a few things behind it, and I did this successfully a few challenges ago, now I plan to make a return.

 

A+: Cold Shower every day all 6 Weeks (Bonus 1 STA)

A: Completed 30 Day Challenge

B: 25 Days of Challenge Completed

C. 20 Days of Challenge Completed

D. 15 Days of Challenge Completed

F. <15 Days of Challenge Completed

 

MEASUREMENTS

Red - Up | Green - Down | Blue - Same (vs end of last challenge)

Height: 68"

Weight:  212 lbs

Waist:  40"

Hips: 39.75"

Chest:  40"

Neck: 15"

Thigh(Left): 22.25"

Thigh(Right): 21.5"

Bicep(Left)12.75"

At first I was surprised that my weight had actually gone down between challenges, but after taking the measurements and thinking about it I figured that it's likely just muscle loss that helped me cut down the weight from the end of the last challenge, especially since the waist measurement is up an inch. As you can see I've opted to try something else for the start of this challenge, I usually let each challenge be it's own separate thing, generally unconnected to the previous, but now I want to compare directly to the previous one for the measurements, or at least view it as a continuation from there. So I've opted to add in the coloring to help track that. Also, sorry about the images...I had some settings a bit off on the camera, and it used a flash (which it hasn't done for this photos previously).

 

MINI-QUESTS

Mini-Quest #1: Distractia - Completed +1 WIS

Mini-Quest #2: Distractia's Casino - Completed +1 DEX

Mini-Quest #3: Distractia's Sneak Attack - Completed +1 CHA

Mini-Quest #4: Fight Distraction - Completed +1 STR

Mini-Quest #5: We're all Liars - Completed +1 WIS

Mini-Quest #6: Slay Distractia - Completed +1 CON

Bonus Mini-Quest: Looking Back - Completed +1 WIS

 

So there we are, my current challenge, let me know your thoughts about the idea of bonus points and such (still sticking within the 15 points so I'm not giving myself extra), we'll see how it pans out!

Your challenge rocks, as usual! :) Ok, you are the second person I have seen doing cold showers... I read up on the benefits and it sounds good (except for the part where it raises your testosterone... no thanks! lol). I might have to try it. 

 

I like your bonus point thing! :)

No go kill it!!

This is actually the second time I'm doing cold showers! I did it all the way back in my second challenge. Definitely enjoyed it then, grumpy I let myself stop with them. Figured I'd bring them back.

Well, at least it is warm weather now, so cold showers will be more refreshing than when it is winter! ;)

Excellent looking challenge.  I can't believe the cold showers was challenge #2.  It seems more like it was 2 challenges ago to me haha.  Time flies when you're having fun I guess :D

I know! I was looking back and I couldn't believe how long ago it was.

Nice goals.  Good luck with the Cold shower challenge, I dabbled in that last challenge and may do so again this time around if I can switch my workouts (and subsequent showers) to the AM.  Cold showers at night do NOT help sleep.

AverageJoe cold showers are awesome, but I can totally see what you mean with them not being beneficial for sleep. But yeah, help us make it a hat trick 80D

I hope so! I've been on a plateau the last few weeks, but I'm sure this challenge will help kickstart my progress again.

I should throw out a warning for you though, my weight loss goal is nearly half of what yours is (40 lbs vs 84). So each pound I lose is a higher percentage than each pound you lose....just thought I'd throw out that disclaimer.

Well poop! Let's see if we can do the math and figure it out?

Well, if it helps...the 180 isn't my ultimate goal persay, but it's my main goal goal post (I have other smaller ones that I'm not really throwing out here, but it's pretty much the 10's, 210, 200, 190, etc.) Instead of looking at the number you want to hit eventually, you can look at a goal post and throw that up as the percentage and see where that puts you...So my current aim is about 45 pounds...(I keep saying 40 when it was really 45..heh). So if you set that as a "goal post" your target weight would be...174, assuming I did my maths right, then once you hit that you can then set your next goal post for the remaining 39 pounds. :shrug: Again, that part is your own personal path so it's up to you to figure out the best way to handle it, I just don't want you getting discouraged if we're making similar progress but my percentages are increasing more.
