Fit Intro:
As a kid, I sucked at everything sport related and was known at my school for failing almost every time on P.E. The last couple of years I have discovered that I actually do love to push my body, but that I'm not a fan of team sports. I love dancing, yoga and strength training(free weights and body weight). My most recent victory was the 5k race that I ran in May and I hope to get a <30 min time on that soon.
 
Nerd Life Intro:
I recently graduated as a Java Developer, but still taking on extra courses like Android. Programming is computers + puzzles and therefor awesome. I love reading fantasy and scifi and playing RPG's like WoW and Divinity (it's Belgian!). Civ V is another favorite (and The Sims, but sssh). My gaming skills are not nearly what I want them to be but I enjoy myself. I also love drawing, painting (both mostly nudes) and spending way too much time on Tumblr.
 
Main quest:
Vanity
10606460_281457875388907_862875608641009
For the weight loss pvp I plan to lose 5lbs in 10 weeks. This should get me to visible abs and the lowest weight that I have been in my entire adult life.
 
Missions:

  • Same as last time: be able to perform the splits on both sides and really improve my wheel pose. Contortion is still awesome and ensures I can post a lot of scary gifs
    tumblr_nbez42getU1qzeg3ko2_r2_500.gif
    Practice every day. Points of completion will be given based on improvement and if I have practiced enough.
    count: 1 point for DEX for improvement of wheel pose, 1 for STA for training every day, same for splits (4 total)
  • tumblr_static_4d1jxsrgqw8w4k00os4oggc44_
    For the nutrition part of the fat loss I want to put off the tracking as long as possible because of a) stress and B) really hard when you live with your parents and they really don't want you to weigh your food. Instead I want to tackle some bad habits (hence the challenge title):
    - alcohol: instead of the weekly bottle of wine I will consume no alcohol for the entire challenge. I make an exception for champagne/sparkling wine because this would imply celebration (2 birthdays coming up + I might get a job)
    - sugary snacking: no more mindless grazing on processed sugar filled junk, no more store bought cookies or candy
    - drink more water: drink at least 2L a day
    - cook a healthy dish at least 2 times per week (tnx MogiShade)
  • - protein: NEED MOAR
    tumblr_naeywoRRDQ1riklfpo1_500.jpg
    Every week I will start tackling another one while continuing beating down the previous ones. Feel free to tell me about other habits I can add to this list!
    count: 3 for CON
  • Workouts: Bodbot is my master and I will obey all its orders
    count: 1 point for DEX based on cardio, 1 point for STR based on the strength exercises, 2 points for STA based on consistent training
  • Life quest:
    Get a job and move out
    First job, then move out, so this mostly means applying for a lot of jobs, creating stuff to add to my resume and improving my skills  
    count: 3 for CHA, 2 for looking for jobs, 1 if I actually get one
     
    Side quest:
    Create my own android app and publish it in the store
    I already know what I want to make but I don't have all the skills yet.
    count: 1 point for WIS
     
    Motivation:
    tumblr_lisvs88DIw1qi2fc6o1_500.png
    I want to be amazed by what my body is capable of, what I am capable of. I want to proof that I am not lazy and that I can do anything if I put my mind to it. This will be a serious challenge of persistence but I like challenges! Why be less when you can be more?
     
    EDIT
    I saw this method of tracking in a couple of threads and I like the clean layout, so I will start doing this too.

Today's workout

 

Band Pull Aparts:

4 x 8 reps 

 

Sit-Up with punch (for the mini challenge)

8 reps

10 reps

9 reps

 

splits practice

 

Cycling intervals

1 minute hard, 1 minute moderate

repeated 7 times

 

This week I am countering 2 of my nutrition obstacles: alcohol and sugary snacking. I am now eating fruit, protein bars (I know, not the best option) or some smoothie/protein shake instead.

Three days in and I already had to turn down some very tasty looking wine at my grandmother's. You never realize how many times you drink/eat sugar until you decided to stop.

 

Life goal:

Got a job interview tomorrow and another one next Wednesday! Wish me luck

[...] really hard when you live with your parents and they really don't want you to weigh your food.

Offer to cook once a week.  They'll think you;re being nice but you're secretly hijacking dinner to serve healthy high protein food.  Muah ha ha ha!!!  :devilish:

good luck with your job interview!!!!

It went well! :D

 

Unfortunately I forgot to bring a snack (interview + transport = 6 hours) and got so hungry afterwards that I bought a muffin at the station's coffee shop. They had no healthy options.

Mom: Any suggestions for dinner?

Mom: You always come up with such weird combinations

 

So I ate the classic combo without my parents realizing that it's a classic combo.

My mom doesn't like broccoli (she exchanges a lot of her vegetables for apple sauce) so she probably thinks any combinations would be strange ;)

 

I had to google tater tots btw :P never seen, let alone tasted, one of those before.

This week's nutrition goal: track my intake. I hate it but I'll have to if I want to loose the fat in an efficient manner. For reasons that I have explained before it will not be possible for me to track/weigh everything but I'll do my best.

Great goals keep it up!

 

I resisted tracking my intake for a long time. This challenge that is part of my goals. Using the My Fitness Pal app has been super easy so far. I guesstimate everything so I don't worry too much about busting out the scale and measuring cups. Just eye ball it and assume what one portion size is. Or measure something once and remember. It's been surprisingly simple.

 

Abs are made in the kitchen. And they aren't just going to show up on their own. Get it.

I've used MFP for tracking too, and I'll agree that tracking in general is just no fun, but it's super illuminating. I like the graphs that show your macro balance - really puts your intake into to perspective!

Great job on week 2! ^^

Another Idea I had, Weight Watchers makes serving utensils that are measuring spoons, so you can measure your food without anyone knowing that's what they are for. (you have to know someone doing WW or maybe Ebay has some) but I found these at Amazon, they are similar in function.
