Sabretooth-Kitty Continues Through Westeros


Sabretooth-Kitty

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

 

Welcome to my new challenge!!!!

 

I have 4 weeks on this challenge before I go on holiday to Australia!!!! I can't wait, so I'm doing this challenge as if it's only 4 weeks long, however I will keep up with my diet and fitness whilst on holiday and update this thread when I return home afterwards.

 

Main Quest: Lower Body Fat % - I think I'd like to get down to 18%, but I'll decide as I get closer as I've never even been close to that figure. I'm currently 25.9% (measured by callipers) and will be remeasuring weekly.

 

Quest 1: Continue to weight train 4x per week.

Measurement: A = 12, B = 11, C = 10

Reward: A = +3 STR, +2 CHA, B = +2 STR, +1 CHA, C = +1 STR

 

Quest 2: Continue Tyrion's journey through Westeros, I am still doing a cardio session at least twice a week and use the bike to warm up and cool down around my weight training but I feel I'll end up slowly reducing how much cardio I'm doing and focus more on the weights, so the goal is lower this challenge, 5km/day.

Measurement: A = 140km, B = 120km, C = 100km

Reward: A = +3 STA, +2 DEX, B = +2 STA, +1 DEX, C = +1 STA

 

Quest 3: New diet to stick to, I've started it recently and really want to stick with it, I'm following 16/8 fasting and IIFYM style eating, really mostly worried about my protein (1g/lb weight) and eating 90% clean foods with a treat here and there.

Measurement: A = 448 hrs fasting, B = 438, C = 428

Reward: A = +3 CON, B = +2 CON, C = +1 CON

 

Life Quest: Work towards improving brain power, doesn't matter how it's done, new coding tutorials, building an app, etc anything that I deem working towards feeling more confident getting back to work. At least 1 hour per day.

Measurement: A = 28 hrs, B = 25, C = 22

Reward: A = +3 WIS, B = +2 WIS, C = +1 WIS

 

Update on Tyrion's progress through Westeros coming soon :)

Will do! lots and lots of pictures, and if I can't post them during I'll post them when I get back. With any luck there might be a bikini pic that I'm not ashamed of :-P

I actually found IF pretty easy to follow.  Though I never did it with the BCAA's though.  I did consider doing a 24 hour style fast.  Mostly just to see how it would work for me.  

I'm finding it really easy as well actually, I started with an 11am-7pm eating window because I don't like eating too late at night, and for the past couple days I've found I can easily save eating for 12, so I have a 7 hour eating window and then if we end up having dinner late one day I don't need to worry about it. And that way my body has a whole 17 hours of fasting to shift some stored fat :)

 

Well the BCAAs are supposed to prevent muscle breakdown whilst fasted, it's like eating the protein you need without the calories. So I'm not willing to start fasted exercise until it arrives as I'm scared of losing what little muscle I have.

 

Did you do a 24 hour fast in the end? I've done them before but since you're supposed to get good results on 16 hour fasts I don't think I'd do it again.

Those are muffins of freakin' glory!  Protein pirate muffins? YES.

 

I used to do IF. I guess I kind of still do, but not really. I don't eat first thing in the morning but that's out laziness more than anything else :P Anyhow, I found it easy to follow.  Unfortunately, when I was doing it I was eating way too little (I didn't mean to! I didn't know!) and it jacked me up.  But now that I'm not accidentally starving myself I bet it'd be better. Ha!

They are pretty awesomes hehe, I still have some in the freezer to break out hehe

 

I hear ya, I used to do ADF with 500 calories on alternate days, but it's just not sustainable but 16-17 hours a day really is doable, it's just missing breakfast really.

I did the accidental starvation thing as well recently, was doing 1-2 hours cardio a day and following paleo without counting calories, worked out afterwards I was burning at least 500 calories a day and eating less than 1000, I think it led to a lot of muscle loss that I'm just now managing to build up again

OMG!!!! I did a bad! I bought unflavoured BCAA's and they arrived today and it's the most horrible thing EVER!!!!! So I regrouped and bought a flavoured one that's supposed to be nice. I don't even think I can stomach the unflavoured stuff whilst I wait for the delivery of the new stuff... Will have to ebay it I guess but BLEUGH!!!!!

How cool that you are going to Australia! I enjoy watching your progress on Tyrion's journey...it's a great way to keep the mileage going.

 

I didn't realize you do coding and apps. I'm doing some similar stuff. iOS programming is kicking my butt, though.

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity:

but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

I can't wait for Australia, will be nice to be so far away from any cares and just relax :)

 

Yeh I've been a Software Engineer for a couple of years now, always keen to learn new thinks so thinking of building something in JavaScript soon as I've only ever edited it not built anything with it yet, so thought I'd get some practice in by designing something that's useful to me, maybe something to track my protein intake and training or something (not that my fitnesspal isn't doing a great job but I'd like somewhere digital I can store my weight training progress) or maybe just a silly text based rpg to keep me occupied hehe

Good Enough? (Obviously since I'm playing Tyrion in this scenario... maybe I should of picked a girl to follow but Tyrion's journey is way cooler)

I always wanted to be like the hero in most books and movies.  I think Black Widow was the only exception in recent history.  But way to go on approaching your goal!!
