RogueWelkin References Kilts In A Clever Thread Name (Challenge 9)


Recommended Posts

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. It's been the same for the past few challenges, but this means a weight loss of 28 lbs in under two months, while some people have had that kind of loss I'm doubtful that it'll be legitimately possible, but I'm still going to try! (Healthily)


 


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 - Calories Count: Eat at most between 1500-1600 Calories per day [CON:2 WIS:2]


I'm in a good place with the food I eat, trying to focus on keeping within a specific calorie range to focus on fat loss.


 


A: Did Not Exceed 1600 Calories per day all Six Weeks


B: Did Not Exceed 1600 Calories per day for  Four Weeks


C: Exceed 1600 Calories per day 2 days per week for Four  Weeks


D: Exceed 1600 Calories per day 3 days per week for Four Weeks


D:  Exceed 1600 Calories per day >3 days per week


 


 


Quest 2 - Selective Sugars: Cut Down/Out Added Sugars [CON:2 WIS: 2]


The idea here is to focus on cutting out added sugars. Only natural sugars found in things like fruits, vegetables, and possibly honey when making food at home. Exceptions will be made for Cured Meats (such as Bacon).


 


A: No Cheats For All Six Weeks 


B: 1 Cheat A Week For Four Weeks


C: 2 Cheats a Week for Four  Weeks


D: 3 Cheats a Week for Four Weeks


F: >3 Cheats a Week


 


Quest 3 - Muscle Misc: Perform a Mix of Strength/Cardio Exercises at least 3x a week [STR: 2|STA:2]


Continuing my attempts to get my exercise habit, want to make sure I add in walking in addition to the strength exercises


 


A+: Exercise 3x 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 1 - Work Wreckage:  Spend at least 1 hour per workday on backlog [WIS: 1]


I've allowed myself to gain a massive backlog of some of my duties at work, I intend to fully catch up and keep up during this challenge.


 


Side Quest 2 - Frugal Finances: Track Income, Bills, and Spending every day [WIS: 2]


Back to the budget this time, I had an awesome job last time, and with the impending wedding and recent move it's time to get back on top of this one again. 


 


MEASUREMENTS


 


Height: 68"


Weight: 208.5


Waist: 42"


Hips: 40.25"


Chest: 40.75"


Neck: 15"


Thigh(Left): 21"


Thigh(Right): 22"


Bicep(Left): 13"


Bicep(Right): 13.25"


Body Fat %: 32%


 


Some of these numbers are a bit of a departure from the end of the last challenge. The waist measurement I didn't take as tightly as previously. I think I was taking the measurement too tightly and so I let it loosen up a little bit to give a more true picture of what's going on. I may have gained a little bit regardless, but not as much as this might suggest compared to the last one. 


 


MINI-QUESTS


 


Mini-Quest 1 - Completed +1 STR


Mini-Quest 2 - Completed +1 STA


Mini-Quest 3 - Completed +1 CON


Mini-Quest 4 - Completed +1 CHA


Mini-Quest 5 - Missed


Mini-Quest 6 - In Progress +1 DEX

Well... there's a couple of paid photographers...but I'm not sure if they'll be paying attention to the crowd as much as us up front. 80D

I've been debating trying to find a way to stream it, I've got a lot of online friends (having been part of one online community for 20+ years tends to do that I guess.) But it's pretty pricey to do it with pros, and I'm not sure if I'd have all the equipment to set it up myself.

It's a tough trick to lose a lot of weight like that in a short time, especially if you've already lost that initial lump of weight that you seem to see when you first start.

I suppose, I'm not entirely enthused with how empty the bank is going to look though.

As always, your goals look great.  I find sugar is definitely one of my weaknesses and that when I'm careful about it I can see a lot of progress.  Best of luck with this one!

Awesome goals! You'll kill it. You definitely have a good motivator--kilts are fantastic! Oh, and I guess the whole getting married thing is a good motivator, too. :P

The wedding is a fairly decent motivator, but it's coming up quick, gotta find something for motivation after that. 80D

Yeah, I am sure it wouldn't be worth the headache, or cost.

So, at the end of this challenge you will have KILT it! hehe!! :)
