Silmarilliane Posted November 11, 2014 Report Share Posted November 11, 2014 Hi all Last challenge I embarked on an epic point scoring system involving multiple combination forumlas in excel. As exciting as this was, it led to some lack in motivation on certain days and a general fail towards the end where I felt I didn't deserve the score and sabotaged to make it more accurate. That's a completely normal thing to do right? right?! Aaaaanyway... I completed my third challenge with a grade C, and lost 4lbs, several centimetres (pretty much all on my boobs... thanks for that) and walked over 170 miles. My life quest again is to de-flab my fab self. I have to say that I did squeeze myself into a (ahem VERY stretchy) pair of size 10 skinny jeans the other day. They were snake skin pattern. oh yes. Goals for this challenge:Stick within calories: I attempted averaging out cals last week and it just led to over eating, so I'm going back to mfp lightly active, 1lb a week and adding exercises. I'm going to allow myself a bit of flexibility this time, so I'm allowed to go over cals six times over the course of the challenge, and four of those are allowed to be non-counting days. I'm really hoping this means I'll stick to it on the other days. Walking: I've given up counting up to Mordor as I realised it would take several years and I got sick of counting miles every time I walked. My journey to work usually involves a mile walk to the station, another mile at the other end and the same home (so 20 lots of mile walks). To pass this section I have to do at least 15 of these walks per working week. My PLP Challenge: So my version of this will be Press-ups, Plank and Dumbbell rows as follows:Week 1: 15 press ups, 35 sec plank, 15 dumbbell rowsWeek 2: 20, 40, 20Week 3: 25, 45, 25Week 4: 30, 50, 30Week 5: 35, 55, 35Week 6: 40, 60, 40and I have to do these EVERY SINGLE DAY! Weights and Cardio: to keep myself doing other stuffs, I have to do at least one cardio workout a week (usually zumba), and also have to do a full total body dumbbell workout at least twice a week. Scoring will be a lot vaguer this time round (sorry all point fans), so I'll do a summary each week and then scoring at the end.
