Okay so my name is Hannah and I'm an assassin in training. My goals for this upcoming 4 week challenge is as follows:

 

1.) Complete the Advanced Bodyweight workout 3 times a week and on the same day complete the Begginer's Parkour workout and finish the day off with sprints with corners and straight aways at my old high school track. When I'm not working out I rest and I mean I rest a lot cause I'm going to be tired!

 

2.) Go to a Yoga class 3 times a week on my off days or at least try some at home yoga that isn't too crazy and will help the soreness and increase my flexibility.

 

3.) Go Vegan/ as close as I can be while meeting my 3,000 calories a day goal. That being said...why Vegan? Why not Paleo? This is nerd fitness! Well ya see my sister's Vegan and she has a lot on her plate with her job and going out with friends and I wanna make sure she, and the rest of my family are eating well. So I'm going vegan. Every meal I've planned out will include 30g of Protien and a vegetable or two and complex carbohydrates. (I'll post these recipes/ eating times (I guess if you could call it that) later if I want I probably will!) (hint: the post protien shake isn't vegan but I love it (ps: it's Steve's Post workout calorie bomb of a protein shake) (also I'll be intermediate fasting) (because I don't like breakfast) (and cause nobody has time for that when you have two jobs and your first year in college is way down the line, all ready for you to run straight into it and fall well not today Zurg! I'm gonna cat hang up it and pull myself up!)

 

4.) Meditate for a minute each day and increase the time by one minute each week. So week one it's for 1 minutes, next week 2 min, ect.

 

Now I know this last one won't get reached in 4 weeks but I'm currently 95lbs, my doctor wants me to be at 115-120lbs and I want to be personally 175lbs with most of that being muscule! My Body fat percentage is at 17% right now and I'd like to keep it that way or even raise it a bit but I don't want to to go down past 15% because of the heath risks.

Oh wow okay I know it's not like a big thing but thanks for following me! I really appreciate it!

 

So since I'm off for the summer, I plan to wake up around 7 and do some yoga and meditate like I mentioned in my first post. I would start my workout at 11am and workout for an hour (or however long it will take, I'll let you guys know.) Then at Noon I'd break my 16 hour fast with Steve's powerhouse protein shake and then maybe some Vegan Tacos. Then around 6 or so (I haven't decided yet when dinner will be, definitely before my 8pm no more food cut off) I'll have dinner, which is beans and rice or vegan tacos. Than around 7:50, cutting it close I know lol, I'll have a protein shake for just a little added boost in calories for gaining weight.

 

VEGAN TACOS

 

INGREDIENTS

MAKES 6 SERVINGS

-1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Spread scant 2 tablespoons beans over each stack. Top with soy chorizo mixture, dividing equally. Sprinkle with diced onion and cilantro.

Awww thank you so much and I just uploaded them, they are "boring" in a sense but that's what it takes, I've tried bringing it down to as much sciencey stuff as I can i.e getting 30g of protein in each meal while still being vegan and I'm going to treat "my body like a machine" like Steve says!

Hey y'all and welcome to the first day of the new challenge! 

 

7/9/17

 

Bodyweight and sprints

 

Starting weight: 98lbs

 

So for today after doing a yoga workout routine I found on YouTube, I completed three circuits of the Advanced Bodyweight workout meaning I did the following three times after warming up: 

 

10 one legged squats – each side my legs hate me but I made sure to stretch my legs more often because of this I'm not completely sure I went low enough but I took every rep slow and will continue to try to go lower next time I workout.

 

20 body weight squats easy peasy, did this in front of my mirror to make sure my form was good. 

 

20 walking lunges (10 each leg)

 

20 jump step-ups (10 each leg)

 

10 pull ups [Using my kitchen table because I can't quite do a pull up yet but getting close]

 

10 dips – using two of my island's chairs

 

10 chin ups  [inverted body weight rows using my kitchen table with underhand grip]

 

10 push ups

 

30 second plank

Then I did 10 leg lifts to strength my core a bit before cooling down with some stretching. I'm going to be keeping up with three circuits for another week or two, adding a rep to each exercise every week, once I am able to double the reps I'll add another set, I'm aiming for a solid 5x20 for a nice round number. On my off days I'm going to be rock climbing at the local YMCA. 

 

After my workout I drank my protein shake and now I'm just filling out some job applications. 

 

For dinner I'm going to be making rice and beans and drinking a more simpler protein shake to add weight.

 

Hope your first day is going well!

Hi there guys! 

 

I know now I know I'm super late on posting but big news! I got the job! I start training tomorrow and Wednesday, but I'm going on vacation on the 27th until the 5th so I'll try to fit in at least some pull-ups, push-ups and some lunges but I'll be walking everywhere so at least it's something. 

 

I ate really well yesterday! I had chipotle, I got a burrito with chicken, brown rice and Avacado. I ate all of it and felt really full, for dinner I had a chicken thigh and broccoli. But here's the thing, my parents are going to be gone this week and our oven isn't working so we just have a stove...so it's time to start thinking of alternatives! 

 

I haven't really been working out very much tho, I have been taking my dog for walks a few times a day. I helped my brother move a few days ago and I'm still a little sore even though I carried some of the lighter stuff. In all the last few days I haven't been on the top of my game with working out but I have been eating better and my life is looking up so in all I think I'm doing okay.

 

hopw your day is going well!

Oh hello there! I know I'm late again but I've been getting into the swing of things at work and get meals done to bring to work. So that being said, I'm on my feet for the majority of my shift excluding my breaks. I'm also lifting some heavy boxes, I work in the deli at my local Safeway, so I'll be lifting a lot of boxes of chicken, cheeses and other things as well. So I guess that's what I can do to workout when im at work? I don't know but I do stretch before and afterwards so I'm gonna count it! ʅ(◞‿◟)ʃ

 

as for food I've been drinking a protein shake when I get up so it gives me more time to get ready. For lunch I've been picking up a freshly made sandwich from the cold case, usually something with chicken and fresh condiments. For dinner it's usually some brown rice, black beans and chicken or some pasta with Italian sausage and spinach.

 

Ive been doing push-ups and some lunges when I get home from work so I'm fitting in exercises when I can, I'm not used to working these long hours yet so I'm going slow but I'm not trying to make excuses, I'll be doing more once I get a routine down.

 

hope your week is going well!

Hey guys!

 

So I touched down in DC today, I'll be here for a week on vacation with my family and it's nice to take a break from work, I'm really enjoying it but it's nice to spend time with family. We'll be doing a lot of sightseeing so I'll be walking a lot. As for food, once we got settled into our rooms we went down to the Whole Foods around the corner. I suprized my family by filling up one of the three sectioned plate's with three chicken thighs, steamed string peas and spinach and orzo salad. I ate two of the thighs and most of the two sides, I left the rest for tomorrow as the rest of my family was finished eating so I packed it up, in all it's still a lot of food and I can already feel the weight add on. Okay maybe not that far but it's still a good feeling!

 

Ive been doing a simple workout that I do in my room at the place where we are staying. It's push-ups, pull-ups if I can find a tree branch or a bus stop overhang, and being in DC, I think I'll find a few ;) I'll also do some squats!

 

Bodyweight workouts is all about being able to adapt to your surroundings and work with what you got, literally!

 

hope your week is going well, I'd love to hear from you!
