Create momentum (2016:2)

Recommended Posts

The first challenge this year was all about building good habits as the foundation for my change. This challenge is all about momentum.

 

What I realized is that I have a good plan but need some luck (avoid getting a cold) and a bit more disciplin (no cheating).

 

I will keep this simple, but not to easy, so I will stay with my goals from the last challenge.

 

Goals:

  • Cleaned up eating / LCHF, paleo - minimize intake of sugar and starches (every day during this challenge)
  • Drink water - drink recommended amount of water (every day during this challenge)
  • Exercise - outdoors or at the gym (3x week during this challenge) *

Why? This is to (1) get back on track (weight, BF% etc) and (2) build habits for more challenging goals (e.g. strength goals etc).

 

*) Work out program:

 

1 - Push press, squat, bosu ball, chin ups + extra

2 - Dead lift, shoulders, plank, pull ups + extra

 

Cheers, Chrille

Great goals. What do you do for your outside workout? I like to do some workouts outside too, it is a good change up. I  do calistenics at the park, or I have some gymnastic ring and sledgehammer in my backyard to play with

Well, in the summer i use to power walk, run (5-6 k or intervalls like 5x400 metres) or just hang around at the playground fooling around with chin-ups, pulls ups, or a skipping rope etc. Occasionally i take out my inlines or ride the bike to work. In the winter I play around on the ice, skating, go skiing or just take a power walk. When outdoors I just try to have fun while exercising a bit. Calisthenics sounds fun. Maybe I need to organize my playground activities a bit more.
