The Clone Wars: The Prequel - Shello and Deftona Get Their Shit Together


Shello

Recommended Posts

 

Are you ready for this? This is a tandem challenge.  @deftona and I both had an abysmal challenge last go around.  It was supposed to be the one where we each got back into the groove and made some progress.  Rather than an improvement from the challenges before, it got worse, like, super off the rails worse. Our current levels of accountability don’t seem to be enough.  We’ve been accountable to ourselves, to the Doodlies, to the entire NF community but for some reason, right now, this doesn’t seem to be enough.  Before we can get back to waging war, we need to get our shit together.  And what do you do when you can’t do something on your own?  You get back up, you phone a friend, and you potentially risk your friendships by causing unnecessary punishments if you fuck up.  So that’s what we’ve done.  

 

For this challenge we are in this together.

 

We’ve tried challenges with rewards for hitting our goals.  We’ve tried challenges with punishments for not hitting our goals and both methods have come up a little short.  In order for this reset to work we need more accountability than ever before, accountability2 (patent pending).  

 

For this challenge, if either of us misses a goal, we both pay the price.

 

The deets: We each have our own goals but they boil down to 5 workouts a week and following a sensible calorie limit.  The calorie limits are tiered so that there is a specified amount that we can go over without incurring any punishment, going over more than that is either a minor or a major infraction, depending on how much over the limit we go or how we go over that limit (depending on whose challenge we’re talking about).  Dietary punishments are to be completed the following day. Each missed workout incurs a penalty as well. Training penalties are cumulative and should be completed by the end of the following week.

 

The sexy part everyone’s here for:

 

PUNISHMENTS:

 

        1st Dietary Minor Infraction: Add extra sets or miles on top of whatever we had planned for our next workouts

        2nd Dietary Minor Infraction: Do the Darebee daily workout (in addition to our normal workouts)

        3rd Dietary Minor Infraction: The same as a major infraction

  Major Dietary Infraction: 1 dairy-free meal and only cold showers the following day

 

        1st missed workout: Darebee Daily Dare, with extra credit if possible, or do it twice

Any subsequent missed workout: 50 burpees per missed workout

 

My Boring Backstory

Spoiler

I found NF in the summer of 2014.  I was very overweight and found most day to day tasks difficult.  I spent the rest of 2014 going back it time as a Time Lord companion, losing 80 pounds along the way. I never quite made it back all the way to my goal but the point of the journey was to find the real me and take my life back.  Little did I know at the time that I was really Wonder Woman, under a spell that turned me into an ogre.  I’m still in the process of breaking the spell.  Since then I’ve gotten stronger and more active.  I started by just walking 1 mile a day and have since run a 5K, taken up rucking, lifting, and Shovelglove and just plain old trying to be as awesome as possible.  Recently I’ve been backsliding and I need to rekindle my passion for training

 

My goals for this challenge are basically the same as the last.  I’m quite sure they are attainable and will help me achieve success if I actually follow them, which I am much more likely to do this challenge.  The only change is that once the 5K is done after week 2 of the challenge, my focus will change to training for the HammerRace*.  I’ll still be training the same number of days and doing the same things but trying to incorporate my hammer, The Negotiator. 

*I still have not signed up for the HammerRace.  As I described at the end of my last challenge, I’ve lost a lot of passion for training.  I would feel much better about forking over the money for this race if I actually had some passion for it and was a bit excited. 

Training goal is to work out 5 times a week, preferable 3 runs and 2 lifting sessions but I’m allowing for some substitutions.  I’m likely to be joining a weight loss challenge at my gym.  My trainer has mentioned some training session for his ‘team’ on Saturdays’.  I’m not really sure what that entails but it may mess up my schedule a wee bit and I want to be able to account for that.  In addition to the required 5 workout days, I’d like 1 active rest day.  That can be just about anything, going for a walk, catching Pokémon, splashing about at the pool with the kids, but ideally it would include a sledgehammer.    

Food goal will follow the same varied calorie goal schedule that I started last challenge.  I’m allowing for a bit higher calories on weekends and then a few lower calorie days during the week.  All the while not restricting myself, particularly on recovery days when I am the hungriest.  I have really struggled with food choices recently but I don’t think it is due to being too restrictive.  I have just been really lax about snacking when I don’t need to be.  I need to break that habit. 

Since my calorie goal is varied, I have set up tiers for the purposes of determining punishment. 

  • For a 1450 calorie day I have a 100 calorie leeway.  Anything over 1550 calories is a minor infraction, over 1650 a major infraction.
  • For a 1600 calorie day it’s a 90 calorie leeway.  Anything over 1690 calories is a minor infraction, over 1780 a major infraction.
  • For a 1900 calorie day it’s 80.  Anything over 1980 calories is a minor infraction, over 2060 a major infraction.

 

Exceptions: 

I will be on my annual trip to the Minnesota State Fair for 6 days during the challenge.  During those days the goals were be turned upside down a bit.  I'll still have tentative goals and I'll attempt to track calories but no punishments will be incurred from those goals.  Rather, I will set a daily goal.  Fail to meet that goal and Deftona has to be punished.  Well, me too.

 

Weekly Mantras

 This challenge is all about a reset and I need to address some of my past behaviors with challenges. Each week will have a specific mantra that captures the ideal I need to exemplify in order to succeed for that week.  

 

Week 1Way of PainTM - This is to kick start the reset

Week 2: Prepare and Enjoy - I leave mid week for vacation to the MN State Fair.  I need to plan and prep things that will help me succeed while on vacation but I am also just going to enjoy my vacation with some lenient goals for each day.

Week 3: Reset and Excel - I'll likely need a mini reset after stuffing my face with foods on a stick.  This week will focus on resetting and jumping right back into my challenge goals and being awesome. 

Week 4: Destroy - this is a full week with no trips, vacations, or excuses to go off the rails.  I plan on totally destroying week 4

Week 5: Persevere - I have a tendency to treat Week 5 like a Week 0. That's not entirely bad except I'm pretty sure Def doesn't want to pay the price.  I'd like to keep my friendship intact and finish the challenge off strong.

That is the point.  The cold shower was my daughter's idea, which you instigated so that makes it slightly your fault.
