6 Week Challenge Via NerdFitness

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

ooo I just found a new blog and forum I love. If anybody else uses it, I'm Pookie on there as well.

Spent a while yesterday looking it over and joined, then today I joined the 6 week "Level Up" Challenge! Being a little Level 1 noob Khajiit isn't me, so I'm combining my love of gaming with, well my need to get control and add some fun!

My goals to get my level up this coming 6 weeks are:

1: Start back swimming 3x a week. (Over did this and aimed too high and got burnt out before)
2: Track my food daily including weekends, including foods I shouldn't have eaten.
3: Walk for the sake of walking 3x a week (I miss living by the sea where walking was better!)
4: My Life Goal is organise the BIG things for my wedding, hall and caterer need sorted ASAP.

    This is great. You sound really motivated. I like walking along the river better than through neighborhoods too. Much better scenery. They have parks in London, why not go to a different one each time, and walk there. At least you will have nature to look at.

Tracking, along with walking, and swimming will hopefully tip you back in the right direction. Both forms of exercise are fun, and my motto is .. Fun exercise , is done exercise. Make these habits, and what happens with the scale happens, hopefully good things.. emoticon

If you make diet, and exercise chores, you will burn out. They have to fit into your life, and I think your plan is awesome.

    I really really REALLY love NerdFitness. It totally got me into the whole ST and paleo eating type mentality and I think it's so great. I love the nerdy perspective too. I've been thinking about buying his rebel strength guy to get me going on a better ST routine.

I'm looking forward to hearing about your challenge!
