Silmarilliane Posted February 20, 2015 Report Share Posted February 20, 2015 Good morrow fellow nerds. My last two challenge attempts have been very much sub-optimal, with challenge five being an utter fail. Basically I injured my foot and spent the next couple of weeks sulking* because I couldnâ€™t do any walking let alone high impact exercise. This is challenge six, but I'm still Level 5 due to the failing. *eating chocolate THIS CHALLENGE! Life GoalThis remains as ever to reduce body fat and be less flabby. Also I want to get stronger and increase my knowledge of, like everything. Year GoalTo get below 11 stone (currently around 11.5) and be able to do one chin up. It will happen dammit! Challenge GoalsCalories: I MUST STAY WITHIN CALORIES. This is myfitnesspal calories set to lose 1lb a week and sedentary (1300), with added exercise calories. Iâ€™m allowed four days of no logging within the six weeks. Walking: Now I can walk again (SO happy about this) I have to do at least 20 miles in any 7 consecutive days; my normal commute involves 5 miles a day. This will stop me being lazy on days off hopefully! Weights: As Iâ€™m still off the high impact cardio until my foot is definitely better, Iâ€™ll pick up the slack with dumbbells. My workout will be 3x10 sets of bicep curls, shoulder press and bench press with my 10kg dumbbells followed by 60 sec plank. I have to do this at least 3 times in any 7 consecutive days. EXCEPTION: Iâ€™m going to Edinburgh for a week in the second week of the challenge so will amend my calories to lose 0.5lb a week but I still have to stay within. Also as I wonâ€™t be carting my dumbbells up on the train, my workouts will be 3x20 pressups, bench dips and squats, and 60 sec plank. Wish me luck! 1 Quote Level 28 Rogue Ranger Welcome to the Dungeons of Doom; locate the Amulet of Yendor ♀ on Level 26 Challenges: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32 Link to comment
