The Beard's Wedding Prep Begins

Helloooooooooooooo!

Hello


 


 


If you haven't seen me for a while, there are some reasons. But now I'm back and getting ready for a wedding in less than eight months!


 


Main Quest


 


Basically my main goal is going for the reduction of fat in my bodyweight composition. Plain and simple. I really don't have an end percentage in mind, just going for the "look good naked" thing, especially with my wedding happening in October ;) I really want to look sexy for the lady-friend.

I'll be sexy and I know it


 


 


Goals:


 


Get up and go!


 


Due to my now-insane evening schedule detailed in reasons, I need to get up in the mornings to do workouts. Meh. Now, this can be done in any combination possible, as long as I get five days in between Sunday and Saturday with adequate rest days thrown in. My preference is Monday through Friday, but sometimes variation is necessary. Currently I am doing Stronglifts 5x5 and I don't see myself switching before the challenge is over. I will post my daily workouts of 5x5 and the cardio days in between them each day. As a side bit to this, I'm trying to figure out how I can add pull-ups into my workout, but I won't exactly track that this challenge just yet.


Total days - 30


 


Stat points awarded if completed:  +2 Str, +1 Con, +1 Sta


 


 


The Beard goes modeling... sorta...


 


To gauge my weight loss, rather than step on a scale (though I will continue to do that), I will take a weekly picture to gauge my progress. Nothing much else to it, it's pretty straight forward. Weight will help, but the difference after six weeks should be apparent.


Total days - 6


 


Stat points awarded if completed: +3 Cha

Forget about the guy, look at that beard. Quite the specimen.


 


Om nom nom


 


This one figures to be the hardest of all, it requires me to very open and vulnerable with you all. My goal is to hover around the 1800 mark for daily caloric intake (though if enough people recommend otherwise for whatever reason, I will reconsider). To help show that I am adhering to this, I will try to figure out a way to link my My Fitness Pal page to this site. Putting up pictures of me is a proverbial cake walk compared to this. This really makes me feel vulnerable. Because this is an experiment on my part, I will aim for 25 days, just because I might take a week to figure out the whole linking profiles thing. I will consider any and all suggestions people have on recommended edits to my diet.


Total days - 25+


 


Stat points awarded if completed:  +2 Cha, +2 Con


 


 


Normally, I would post a life goal, but with my life being virtually consumed by everything else, I think I'll just try to get through until may with everything as is. So no life goals other than managing every aspect of my life.


 


 


Well, that's it. Getting back into my first full challenge in a while. Let's see how this vulnerability thing goes.


 


Also....

You forgot about him, didn't you. It's okay. He still thinks you are awesome.
