Byarni-Getting back to shape-First six-week challenge


Recommended Posts



my name is Simon, and I am following NF for nearly two years. Until now I haven't found the courage to join the forums or in any way activelly participate on the Rebellion. This changes right now. I have decided to start a six-week challenge in order to get back to shape, which I consider the first step in turning my life around.


Some information about me:


I am 21 years old and I come from a beautiful small land in Europe called Slovakia. Currently, I weigh 106 kg and stand 197 cm tall. Last year I have finished my bachelor degree in Civil Engineering, and after a nice summer I have moved to Denmark to study towards my master's degree. Before I left I used to workout 3-4 times a week, with cardio on my off days. Being overwhelmed with the new school, new friends, new culture and basically new everything I started to skip workouts, morning runs and stopped stretching at all. Now it is the time to change it.


My main Quest:


Get back into my previous shape. This doesn't sound very specific, but a year ago I was able to run 8 km, do 100 push-ups, 10 pull-ups, swim across a lake and touch my knees with my head, with my legs straight. Now I can barely run 4 km or do 1 pull-up, not even talking about the swimming, because that is just terrible.


My three goals:


1. Strength training 3 times a week for atleast 1 hour + Stretching. In order to get them pull-ups back.


2. Keeping track of my calories. 2500/day that is it. For me this means mostly giving up the bad habit of soda drinking.


3. Doing cardio on my off days. It is either swimming, running or bike.


Hopefully, this first six-week challenge will help me build the momentum I need to stick with the training even after I go back to Denmark after the holidays.

To keep me accountable I have created an excel sheet where I keep track of my workouts and calories, which I will post weekly.


My side quest:


I am starting to work on a small project, which will basically be a board with the map of the world and the places I've been to. Then I will pin photos of me and my friends in those places in order to create something like a memorable board. The point is, that when I look at it I will just have to smile :) I will post weekly updates on this.


I want to thank everyone for their support and advice, and I am looking forward to working with such a great community as NF is.


P.S. I am sorry for my bad english, but it is not my first language, so please forgive me the mistakes.
