Hi there! How do?

 

Feel free to peruse my previous challenges (in my signature) for an overview of my life over the past year :)

 

My life goal is to improve my health and get over my issue with food (= if I don’t calorie count, I binge). My goal for 2015 is to get clear below 11 stone (currently anywhere between 11 stone 2 and 11 stone 6) and to be able to do one chin up.

 

Every challenge so far has involved calorie counting, so I’m going to mix it up this time and totes steal ideas from my amazing twin from another city, Deftona :D The rest will be exercise based.

 

Goal 1: Intermittent fasting

Not eat anything until midday each day – for the most part I won’t be allowed to eat after 10pm the night before, but will allow myself to extend this in certain circumstances (e.g. where eating something after drinking is just sensible to reduce hangover etc!)

Bonus points if the number of ‘fail’ days is less than 10.

 

Goal 2: Dumbbells

I have two currently set at 12.5kg (recently upped from 10kg), and my usual routine is bicep curls, military press and chest press. By the end of the challenge I want to be able to comfortably do 3x10 reps for each. Bonus points for the weeks I add squats, deadlifts and the like.

 

Goal 3: Jogging (pron. yogging obvs)

I really enjoy running and have been pretty lame at keeping up with it. I need to do at least 3 hours of running over the challenge. This equates to only 30 minutes a week which SHOULD be easy, but means I have to catch up if I forget! Bonus points if I do more than 3 hours total.

 

Goal 4: Press-ups

So from the beginning of the year I’ve attempted 20 press-ups a day, which started strong and has become more every other day or every few. Over six weeks this would be 840 done, so I’m setting that as my goal – allowing myself to catch up on days I’ve forgotten.

Bonus points for going over this by the end, and super bonus points for going over 1000 :D

 

 

That’s all, wish me fun!

OMG I'm not sure I could handle that fasting thing, it sounds scary. I love me some food too much.

 

But good luck! You're going to rock this.

 

Take this life potion just in case

Nice challenge :)

 

I have been IF'ing on and off for 2 years or so. When really stick to it, it works great for me. I try to keep my eating window to 8 hours.

 

but will allow myself to extend this in certain circumstances (e.g. where eating something after drinking is just sensible to reduce hangover etc!)

I hope this does not happen often. This is a quick way to derail all your hard work toward your weight loss goal!

Yes, I hope so too! It's gone well today anyway!

Haha, thanks! Cake was very minimal today and I'm planning on giving what I have left away.

Went slightly over my 10pm cut off tonight due to getting home from choir at 9:53pm! Finished eating some roast courgette just before 10:10 so will fast until at least 12:15 tomorrow.

That may sound very pernickerty but meh, that's me :D

Oh yeah, have also started each morning so far with 30 pressups, so getting ahead already :D

Great start to a day! That's pretty effective for the morning :)
