FatboySuave Posted December 2, 2015 Report Share Posted December 2, 2015 Introduction: I realize that I'm very late to the party, but I figured it's better to join now than later. This is my first challenge! I'm ready to join the rebellion! I am 5 feet 7 inches tall and weigh 240 pounds. I like to play basketball and tennis but haven't done either in quite a long while. I enjoy hiking and jogging (at least I used to and would like to relearn to enjoy them). I am an editor for a local, daily newspaper, so I spend quite a bit of time sitting in front of a computer. Even when I'm home, I'm prone to surfing the Internet and watching Netflix on the couch. I spend a lot of time feeling sorry for myself, but I know that I need to stop that and me some positive changes in my life. Main Quest: I want to lose 40 pounds/weigh 200 by the end of 2016. Quest 1: Complete at least 1 circuit of the Beginner Bodyweight Workout 3 times a week. I've done the workout a few times in the past. I recently completed 2 circuits but haven't been able to complete 3. I want to complete as much as I possibly can and gradually increase my stamina to do more. I also have trouble keeping up with workouts over time. So if I can do a smaller amount of exercise over a longer period of time, I would consider it a success. I'm more concerned with making this a regular habit. A = Complete workout at least 6 times in the next two weeks.B = Complete workout 5 times in next two weeks.C = Complete workout 4 times in next two weeks. Quest 2: Stop drinking Rockstar energy drinks. I'm addicted and tend to drink at least 1 a day. And sometimes 1 means the huge triple serving can. A = 0 Rockstars a week. B = 1 Rockstar a week.C = 2 Rockstars a week. Quest 3: Cook more often, eat out less. Sometimes I'm too lazy to cook, so I often eat a fast food lunch at my desk at work. A = 0 times eating out in a week. B = 2 time eating out in a week (low-carb meals only).C = 4 times eating out in a week (low-carb meals only). Life Quest: Go to bed at a reasonable time and be able to wake up at 4:30 a.m. I usually get to work by 6 no problem, but I want to learn to make more time for myself in the morning to cook breakfast. I also need to learn how to eat dinner at a reasonable time and power down for bed (no Netflix). Motivation: Like Lester Burnham in American Beauty, I want to look good naked. Kidding! Mostly. Really though, I want to meet the love of my life and start a family someday. I've convinced myself that my unhealthy lifestyle is getting in the way of those goals. I believe that if I can lose weight and build my confidence, I can better connect with people without doubting myself so much. 2 Quote Current Challenge Battle Log Previous 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 Link to comment
