New Challenge, new Game so Welcome to:

 

Schaengel vs. the World

 

But first: Do you want to help me? While having fun? And also maybe get better at something yourself? Sounds awesome? How about joining my PVP for this challenge ;)

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1E67yxY5Kh6tlC_zGlU7YJleIQ67jAepJ6RUGwe-UH0s/edit?usp=sharing

Quest 1: “And I will walk 500miles Part 2”

this one will continue so no scott pilgrim theme ;/

 

 

Follow the training plan (meaning between 3-4 runs per week)

Go bouldering once a week

Boxing 1-2 per week

Adding up to training on every day...if I can't make it to bouldering or boxing (because of IMPORTENT things) 20 crunches, 20 push-ups, and 6 30sec planks over the day can coun't. Skipping running is not in the cards this challenge.

 

Background (short version for long version read last thread ;) ):

I'm going to run a marathon. It will be in Cologne

 

Quest 2 "Bread makes you fat" (Clean eating again):

 

So I should eat low-carb. I like low carb and it worked for me in the past...also bread makes you fat.

 

So this challenge will have two parts:

Part 1 track what I'm eating everyday!

Part 2 eat carbs responsibly, meaning if there is a chance of eating no carb eat without carb. If I can eat good carbs instead of bad carbs I eat good carbs.

 

Quest 3 Hydration, the right way:

 

I noticed that I'm really, really bad in keeping hydration the right way and noticed myself eating to realize 20minutes later, that it is actually water I was needing. Also I relapsed back to drinking bad stuff so the plan is.

Drink enough water and/or tea per day (3,5l per day)

If I have sugar free softdrinks I will match 1 part softdrink with 1 parts water (so if I drink a bottle of softdrink I have to drink a bottle of water after that)

No (alcohol free) beer.

I'll give myself 4 free passes on the beer so I can enjoy the weekends a little ;)

 

Quest 4 "Get shit done"

scott-successful-career-1293057789.jpg

I noticed that somehow motivation is an issue for me at the moment...and that's just plain stupid because there are so many great opportunities waiting.

I also noticed that I am more motivated when I start my day productive. So the plan is to build myself a morning ritual.

Write a list with the 3 things I need to do the next day (must be possible to be done at home in the morning)

1. Get up & make coffee

2. Quick cleaning of the basement (max 10minutes)

3. Do list item 1

4  Do list item 2

5. Do list item 3

When done I'll allow myself to start the computer ;)

 

Okay, new month new challenge. Let's be awesome again together :D

Day 1

Good day today, got up and running (literally) in the morning then did my 3 todos while drinking my coffee, then learning some meetings in the city some family stuff and then I went to a concert that a friend organized (DRAP and another band from Sweden) playing Doom and Crust. Cool thing. Then some more talking at the bar and driving home early (before 12) because I'm lazy and since I stopped drinking I'm not the bar going type anymore.

Used all my variances today :/

Also because I just need the feeling that I get a lot done in a day I added the Daily Dare PVP to my to do list.

 

Quest 1: “And I will walk 500miles Part 2”

 

Yes running was done today. Plan said 65min and I managed to do 10,4km in that time.

 

Quest 2 "Bread makes you fat" (Clean eating again):

 

Part 1 track what I'm eating everyday!                                       YES

Part 2 no bread, no potatoes, no pasta                                      NO

0 variance left for this week.

 

Quest 3 Hydration, the right way:

Drink enough water and/or tea per day (3,5l per day)                               Kinda

Also just one coffee with milk in the morning!                                            YES

3 free passes left, first one used for some sugar free ice tea and 3 alcohol free beer at the concert today

 

Quest 4 "Get shit done"

Done today :) and writing my 3 to do's today before I go to bed

Sounds like a good start, even if you did use all your variances. This is zero week though and I've used all my variances and then some so far.

Yeah, you're right. I think I'll have to use zero week for a little testing and some try and error stuff :/

Day 2 (Zero week)

 

Quest 1: “And I will walk 500miles Part 2”

 

No running

 

Quest 2 "Bread makes you fat" (Clean eating again):

 

Part 1 track what I'm eating everyday!                                       YES

Part 2 no bread, no potatoes, no pasta                                      NO

-1 variance left for this week.

Will have to change that because I already see that it's not working at all and is just getting me stressed and frustrated and stuff

 

Quest 3 Hydration, the right way:

Drink enough water and/or tea per day (3,5l per day)                               YES

Also just one coffee with milk in the morning!                                            YES

Also changing again too two coffees in the morning (since I skip breakfast)

 

Quest 4 "Get shit done"

Done today :) and writing my 3 to do's today before I go to bed

That works and will stay

 

Day 4 (Kinda morning)

 

giphy.gif

Yeah...motivation, please..

I'm lazy and frustrated now because:

 

- I have to work on my challenge big time but don't have a clue yet how I can make it work...

I want to loose some weight in the next 2-3 month because every kilo that I don't have to get over the >42km is a good one. But somehow both the calories I'm aloud per day and the low carb plan are not working...

I'm normally eating 2 meals per day, because I'm fine with 2 cups of coffee and milk for a breakfast. So in theory I have 2000-2150 cal left for two meals. Sounds like  lot, I think it is a lot. But nonetheless I feel like I'm starving in the evening...so I think I somehow have to start planning from scraps again and need to find the amount of calories that I can eat without feeling starved but where I'll still loose weight and the right macro-mix...

 

- I have a university project starting on the 10th that I was really hyped about. It is important for my overall grade. It is important as an example for work to show to potential employers. It is my theme (logistics for open air live events). But both my team and the company we're working with seem to be not really motivated at the moment. Also as team-leader I'm in some kind of dilemma because, I have to get my team (aka other students) to work but don't have any kind of potential sanction if they don't...that's frustrating as heck and the same problem led to me leaving student council because I don't like to waste my time in an enviroment where I factual don't have a real power to influence things...

 

- nothing new on the job hunt thingy

 

- I messed up a talk I had to give yesterday (on short notice because of some other guys backing out) and it's really f'in with my head, because it was a stupid mistake that wouldn't have happened if I had more time and/or somebody to do a second check of information. So yeah I'm still raging in my head...

 

3db9c03ef8d87b0b706edc8928797bd0.jpg

Okay but let's try to be productive and positive again:

So when I write again later I will:

-have done my run for today!

-have done my 3 to do's for today!

-have done some meditation!

-do something in the evening that works on changing the things that annoy me in the long term!!!

 

So let's do this!!!!!!!

Day 3

 

A quick update because I like writing here ;)

Did some stuff from my to do list, not all things but enough to get in a better mood again. One of the to dos I did was preparing stuff to get a regular game of "Capture the Flag" going in my hometown, also updated the FB Page and already got some nice feedback so yeah a side project that will be fun and will keep me motivated :)

 

Spend the rest of the day in the boulder hall, and running (it was too hot but I managed too do 10 "fast" km) nonetheless.

 

Did some work on changing my challenges, will finish that in time for week one I hope.

You can do it! Make sure you're eating a lot of veggies and protein. That usually helps when feel like I'm starving all the time.

 

I think I need to eat better protein...I did a check of what I was eating the last weeks and recognized that the fat/protein ratio is probably not even near optimal...I'll probably change it to only good carbs, a minimum of greens to eat per day and a calorie minimum.

 

Now too tweak the other Challenges...

I like the way you really think about what went wrong and why and then you start working on solutions. That is definitely the way to do it! It's so easy to think "I just need to try harder" and then keep doing the same thing over and over again. You don't make any progress that way and you end up feeling bad about yourself. It sounds like your challenge is shaping up well!

I used to do that try harder thingy all the time but then I became more and more lazy and as Bill Gates once said

“I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.”

Are you tracking your grams of protein intake?

 

 

I started tracking them using myfitnesspal that's where I saw that I have way to much fat intake and could use more (good) protein. Befre that I was just tracking calories so that just slipped by...

Day 1 (Sunday)

 

Quest 1: “And I will walk 500miles Part 2”

 

10km in 70 minutes. I could do faster but because I was running with an blister (because of bad socks on the last long run) it was okay that way(also hooray for medical technique that made training possible in the first place)

 

Quest 2 "Bread makes you fat" (Clean eating again):

 

Part 1 track what I'm eating everyday!                                       YES

Part 2 YES

Managed a day with nearly no carbs, cooked leek-cheese-meat soup for the next days (because I'm lazy) so hooray cooking is done :)

 

Quest 3 Hydration, the right way:

Drink enough water and/or tea per day (3,5l per day)                              NO

Match soda/ water                                                   YES

 

Quest 4 "Get shit done"

Done today :) and writing my 3 to do's today before I go to bed

Not 100% sure I did this right but I joined your PVP! My character was Adulting + Choose One so I chose Strength - if I'm doing it wrong just yell at me! 

 

For me Day 1 is Monday though... you people who insist on starting your weeks on Sunday confuse me. :D 

 

Good luck with your goals this round - love your ability to roll with challenges and keep on going!

There is a road, no simple highway,
Between the dawn and the dark of night,
And if you go no one may follow,
That path is for your steps alone.

Example of bad protein?

 

 

Everything that comes in powder-form ( but that I still use at the moment because I'm lazy) I would also (in parts) add protein that comes with an unbalanced amount of fat

Yay that's awesome: starting on Monday is cool for me, I mean it takes some time to get into this PVP thing anyway I think :)

 

So now I have to make up my mind about what I want my goals to be :)

Drink enough water and/or tea per day (3,5l per day)                              NO
