PrineZ becomes an Assassin


PrineZ

Recommended Posts

Hello Assassins!  I'm Matthew, this will be my first challenge. I'm excited to join up with the Assassins guild for the first one. I want to feel stronger, look better, become more flexible, lose 25-30lbs, and I've chosen goals that I hope will help me get there.

 

 

Main Quest

I want to lose 30lbs(25 at a minimum) Back in high school(21 now) I was in peak physical shape. I had very low body fat percentage and was very athletic. The last two years or so I've really let myself go and became a hermit. I am at 205 with a 25-28% body fat now and I would like to be back down to 175-180 with a 12-15% body fat by the end of this challenge.

 

Quest 1: GET OUTSIDE!

All of my life I spent almost every minute outside adventuring/climbing/jumping through every obstacle I could find. I now live a completely sedentary lifestyle and think it would help to get outside again. 

 

Part A: Get outside at least once a day

Part B: Climb a tree or explore through the wooded area on my property at least once a week

 

Quest 2: Utilize my body weight!

I want to develop my chest and triceps as best as I can from body weight. One thing I've never had (even when I was in good shape) was a well shaped chest. I would love to build it as much as I can over the next 6 weeks. 

 

Part A: 100 push-ups a night (varying types every night) 

Part B: Get to 20 pull-ups from the current 5 ( as soon as I can make/get my hands on a pull up bar!)

 

Quest 3: Watch my Caloric Intake

My current diet consists of non existence. I do not plan on changing the items I eat, just the amount I consume. (long term goal is to slowly change my diet, but for my first challenge I will just watch caloric intake.) I usually wake up and eat a very large breakfast, snack all day, then eat a very large dinner with little to no exercise between. 

 

Part A: Use Myfitnesspal to set a calorie intake goal to aid in my weight loss and follow it everyday except Sundays ( keeping one cheat day to not discourage me from the plan completely) 

Part B: Eat 3-5 solid meals a day instead of snacking from breakfast to dinner. 

 

Life Quest: Limit my time on World of Warcraft

I've been playing WoW since 2004 and I am an addict. I spend every second of my free time playing now a days. I HAVE to cut back on the amount I play as it has crippled my social life and my physical appearance. Long term goal is to be able to play without neglecting everything else in my life. 

 

Part A: Only play after I've gotten at least one 30 minute workout done in the morning and one in the evening. 

Part B: Do not neglect my goals and personal progress for a game

Thank you all, just knocked out my first 100 4x25 pushups. Have not found anything to do pullups on yet and I have not been on WoW today yet. Feeling good. Another side quest I'm adding is to work on my handstands. Would like to hold them for 10 seconds.

Week 1 has come to an end

I did all of my pushups ( and a few nights I pushed out 200 because I was feeling extra motivated) Also accompanied these push ups with dumbbell squats, rows, flys, etc. 

Haven't found a pull up bar to use

Was outside 3/5 days (mainly because of the -9 degree weather I've been having) 

I can now hold a handstand for 7 seconds

I've only played WoW for about 2 hours this whole week and that has been really nice. 

I'm now at 199lbs, so down 6lbs which I don't really know how because I've kept my same eating habits! (WOOPS)

Best of luck in your challenge man! And I hear ya with the WoW being crack.. I used to be a heavy addict, and had my own guild. Played religiously with my cousins, my ex, and a few people we met through the game. I don't play anymore due to the fact that it catered my social life/skills, and I became a couch potato. My life has sincerely changed since I limited my play time, to eventually quitting the game all together.

Well I didn't really keep up with documenting this properly, however I'm now down 170lbs and I'm now living a much healthier lifestyle. I cut out all fast sodas and most fast food. ( sorry, but I'd rather not give up Taco Bell ) I'm now watching what I put into my body a lot closer. I no longer play World of Warcraft, but instead have picked up CS:GO. (Add my steam if you want to play comp or casual : https://steamcommunity.com/id/prinez/

In reality I didn't stick to this plan at all, but I still got the results I wanted! I picked up a lot from lurking the website/forums.
