    1500 calories Daily CHECK

    Workout 3 days a week, MWF, two body parts a day CHECK

    Ok this was seriously the hardest thing ever...I slipped up first week but was determined not to mess up my nutrition in the 2nd week...the fitness was hard too I did squats for the first time...my legs are still sore from 4 days ago lol

    hopefully that goes away after I keep doing it

    Basically Monday I did chest and shoulders...wednesday did legs and back and friday did biceps/triceps

    I am thinking of splitting it into a 4 day to split the back/legs more because squats are hard lol


    Week 1 Sept20-27 Success

    I sure hope so. :scared:

    Why thank ya kindly, ma'am. :o

    Perfect Week #6 done.

    Goals for Perfect Week #7:
    up to 2400 calories / day, one cheat post-long-run
    4 training runs (3, 7, 4, 10 miles)
    3 strength workouts (legs, push, pull)

    Note: Poor gym performance along with some other signs indicated that it's time to up my daily calories a little bit.

    9/28 - Day one.

    Week 6 Report

    Running - Completed (3, 6, 3, 13.1)
    PushUp/SitUp Challenge - Incomplete (780, 1290)
    Nutrition - Failed (0lbs, -1%BF)
    Notes - It was an awful week, nutritionally, but I still got a "whoosh" and dropped a point in my BF readings without losing any weight. My back and shoulder were giving me problems, so I skipped a few days on the PushUp/SitUp Challenge. I fully intend to make those up this week by doing two-a-days until the end of the month. Running is going well, however, so that's a plus, although I'm not sure I will reach my 100 miles in September. It'll be close. But still, it was not a perfect week. :(

    Week 0 (pre-program) 183.5lbs, 19.75%BF
    Week 1 (Aug 17) 184.75lbs, 17.75%BF
    Week 2 (Aug 24) 184.00lbs, 17.00%BF
    Week 3 (Aug 31) 185.75lbs, 18.25%BF
    Week 4 (Sept 7) 186.25lbs, 17.25%BF
    Week 5 (Sept 14) 185.5lbs, 17.75%BF
    Week 6 (Sept 21) 185.5lbs, 16.75%BF
    Week 7 (Sept 28)
    Week 8 (Oct 5)
    Week 9 (Oct 12)
    Week 10 (Oct 19)
    Week 11 (Oct 26)
    Week 12 (Nov 2)
    Week 13 (Nov 9)
    Week 14 (Nov 16)
    Week 15 (Nov 23)
    Week 16 (Nov 30)

    Week 4 complete.
    I am starting week five with 66 reps each of pushups and crunches, and 50 squats, adding a pushup and a crunch each day.

    Nutrition is still easy - must eat at least 5 servings of fruits and/or vegetables. My weight has been ridiculously stable, so I must be eating (on average) very close to maintenance, maybe 1900 calories?

    Perfect Week #7 done.

    Goals for Perfect Week #8:
    up to 2400 calories / day, one cheat post-long-run
    4 training runs (3, 7, 4, 15 miles)
    3 strength workouts (legs, push, pull)

    Note: 15 miles will be the longest I've ever run. :scared: I should burn over 2200 calories on that one. I think I'll just pull a chair up to a buffet afterward.

    10/05 - Day one.

    Good luck! I hope it goes well for you. Funny thing about those long runs though is that I usually am not very hungry until a few hours later. I don't know how many times I could only finish half a sandwich. It frustrates me a little because I want to take advantage of the opportunity to eat, but cannot, at least not until dinner.

    This challenge really is all about the momentum. :nod: Once you get a few days into it, you want to keep going and get the full week so you don't have to start all over again. So even as it's getting more difficult, the motivation to stay on track increases.

    Thanks! I know that feeling, definitely. I have to force water down immediately when I finish a long run. And I'm lucky to be able to stomach a protein shake within the hour. It does take a few hours to really settle down, but then I'm ravenous. :eat:

    so i'm gonna make easier rules this week. i'm not very driven to cut.... especially since we aren't sure if kali will get halloween night off or not. i'll be happy to make some strength gains and hang out around maintenance. i'll make up for high calorie days with lots of exercise.

    week 4 rules:

    here are my rules:

    -calories between 1200-3200 each day
    -at least 100 grams protein each day
    -veggies/fruit each day
    -alcohol allowed but must be tracked
    -really dialed in pre/peri/post workout nutrition
    -supps = xtend, creatine, fish oil, multi, zinc, magnesium
    -3 scheduled workouts
    -at least 3 extra conditioning workouts
    -must track intake each day

    Woot 3 straight weeks!...I did mess up my schedule but still got 3 workouts in the week...stuck to 1500 calories

    I've lost 4 lbs since starting this challenge...down to 236 from 240...hopefully can hit 225 by the end of october

    Week 1 Sept 21 = Success
    Week 2 Sept 28 = Success
    Week 3 Oct 5 = Success

    Was tempted to cheat since it was nfl sunday lol...but I've gone two weeks without any "bad food" even if it does fit into my calorie goals

    This thread is a great motivator...I actually was about to mess up my diet but then I remembered all the days this week i put into being a "perfect" week would be wasted lol

    I forgot to report that I completed week 5. :doh: Things have been challenging personally, so I'm losing my mind, but I'm still at it with the exercise thing. :dance:

    I am starting week six with 73 reps each of pushups and crunches, and 50 squats, adding a pushup and a crunch each day.

    Nutrition same as above, because it's still working. My abs are getting leaner and tighter, and my butt and thighs are getting leaner and larger. I guess that's supposed to be good, so I'll take it. :p
