TheGense Posted June 2, 2015 Report Share Posted June 2, 2015 * * * Challenge Post updated based up people's helpful comments * * * I know the next 6 wk challenge hasn't started yet, but I wanted to get everything ready. I'm treating this week as a kind of warmup week. So, here is my challenge.... Main Quest. Is to fit into my old suit for my cousin's wedding at the end of August. This will obviously involve loosing inches from my waistline, but I want do do it by getting strong instead. (And eating better.) I'm working towards being able to start lifting heavy by getting the basic bodyweight workout sorted first.Current Waist size is 48in. Current Hip 45 (Where I actually wear my trousers). Target for end of August 38in. SMART quests i) To eat only breakfast and dinner for at least 5 days every week (Intermittent Fast), and for those meals to protein and vegetably with less junk. I've started using MyFitnessPal to track what I'm eating so that next time I can be EVEN MORE specific about those changes.100% = Five days per week for all 6 weeks.75% = Five days per week, but with up to 3 snacks on IF days per week.50% = Less than five days all six weeks or more than 3 snacks on IF days in a week. ii) I'll be exercising three days each week. I've started doing two circuits of the basic bodyweight workout instead of one. I can't complete a whole circuit still. I struggle to always finish the walking lunges and can currently only do 5 pressups per set. By the end of six weeks I want to be doing two full circuits with full reps. (The start of the warm up week it was 4 and 3)100% = 2 full circuits 3 times per week by end of challenge. 75% = BBW 3 days per week but not managing 2 full circuits. 50% = not doing the BBW three days per week for the whole 6 weeks. iii) Do a full stretch routine after exercising to reduce DOMS and increase flexibility.100% = Full stretch routine after exercise routine 3 days per week.75% = Full routine every time I exercise but not exercising 3 times every week.50% = Any incomplete stretch routine Motivation. To be happier and healthier, to be more able and to fit into the clothes that shrank when I wasn't paying attention.Lets see how we do : D 3 Quote Level 2 Bear AssassinSTR 4 | CON 6 | DEX 3 | WIS 5 | CHA 1Current Challenge - First Challenge Drop 7 inches from Hips - 2/7 29%29% Drop 11 inches from Waist - 2/11 18%18% Link to comment
