Better Late than Never

Challenge #6- September 12 - October 22

bltn.jpg

Well, its been a while....almost a year if I'm not mistaken, and I considered not even bothering to start anything since there was only 3 or so days left of this challenge, but I figured the "I'll do it tomorrow" mindset was what got me into this mess in the first place so I might as well just buck up and post something for this challenge, and try to continue it through the next.  Life got pretty bad for a while, from terrible teaching classes and relationships to family trouble and just about everything in between, my real life seemed set on kicking me while I was down. 

 

Pass a few hard months and I finally started to get my work and romantic lives together but my health and fitness really started to decline. A few more months pass and I'm in a happy relationship and work is going much, much better but my health and fitness is the worst its ever been. So I'm getting back on here in hopes that the community and accountability will help me get back into the best physical shape of my life, like I was the last time I was a very active user on here. I know the new challenges are 4 weeks but since I'm coming in at the last minute I'm planning on just continuing mine through the break and into the next challenge roughly about 6 weeks in total, anyway without further ado:

Goal One: Go to the gym/workout 3x per week  ____/18

One of the reason that my fitness started to decline was that I just stopped going to the gym, and working out really at all. Video games and just watching Netflix became what I did when I got home instead of working on my body. Its time to fix that and take control of my life again.  

 

Goal Two: Loose 6lbs and 2%BF

Start: 172.3lbs Goal: 166lbs

Start: 22.1% BF Goal: >20%

Not shockingly when you're not exercising or eating right you tend to gain weight :( I'm currently the heaviest I've ever been lbs wise and my BF is a very sad 22%. I've got a long way to go to get it back down to where I was and where I want to be. 

 

Goal Three: Record all food intake in MFP (MyFitnessPal) for 6 weeks _____/ 42 

I need to get my diet back in order to get to where I want to be. So the goal is to just get into the habit of logging my food, good or bad, in MFP. Hopefully that will help and seeing the calories will help me make better choices. 

 

Goal Four: Read Spartan Fit ___/1  

Reading about diet and exercise and the Spartan mindset is sure to help, so instead of watching TV at night I'm going to try and read this book.

Wednesday Sept 14th

Overall a pretty good day today, got back on here and got my goals up, also cleaned up my Habitica and am trying to use that to assist me with my goals as well. Nutritionally today was also pretty good, my GF made ribs which were delicious so I may have eaten just a few extra cal on them but I still recorded everything in MFP so I'm happy, and as soon as I get done typing this I'm going to read some of my book, so end the end I've had a very productive day. Let hope I can keep it up! :)

Thursday Sept 15th 

Decided to just do some Yoga here at school today since I didn't want to wait till I got home after my meeting at 7 to do it, but man was it awkward when the janitor walked in while I was in the middle of doing plow pose...hahahaha he was just like "are you ok?" and I was just "yeah, just doing some yoga..." He finished getting my trash and left rather quickly after that but it was probably one of the funnier encounter's I've ever had with one of the Janitors here. Overall, feeling very refreshed and relaxed after my yoga and might even take another short walk when I get home from my meeting.

 

I've also been thinking about starting up another RPG feat-based acountabilibuddies group for the next challenge, probably similar to the Assault on Brightwater that I use to be apart of, but we'll see if I can figure out how I'd want to run it. Any thoughts?
