    :doh: I am SO bad at math. :doh: :o

    72 rep progression has been completed, and I started at 31 reps on the first day of week one.

    73-31= 42 days completed

    42/7 = 6 weeks completed.

    I am starting week SEVEN.

    That means this week and only three more weeks to make my perfect 10. :dance:

    I think I'm going to cut AFTER I complete my perfect 10. Because "perfect" is not the way to describe how I cut. :nope: :D

    Perfect nutrition can do wonders for weight loss, can't it? You could probably nudge your calories up a bit, so long as you kept it clean, and still drop pounds. Anyway, good job!

    :dreamy:

    Perfect Week #8 done.

    Goals for Perfect Week #9:
    up to 2400 calories / day, one cheat post-long-run
    4 training runs (4, 8, 4, 16 miles)
    3 strength workouts (legs, push, pull)

    10/12 - Day one.

    Another week bites the dust!

    Week 1 Sept 21 = Success
    Week 2 Sept 28 = Success
    Week 3 Oct 5 = Success
    Week 4 Oct 12 = Success

    Down to 233 lbs...thats 7 lbs from when I started at 240....that 225 goal by the end of oct is gonna be a nailbiter but even if I end up at 227 or 228 I'd hardly call that a failure lol
    I will probably take some pics for my journal at 225 though...

    On tuesday supposed to go to the city with a few friends...hopefully will keep diet in check will plan for it ahead of time so I don't ruin my potential perfect week

    hmm. i swear i posted week 5's rules on sunday.... but i don't see them here.

    anyways i'm just doing 1500-3000 calories with at least 100 grams protein. not even tracking exacts each day. i'll probably do this for 3 weeks and then maybe get more "rulish" then. i'm in strength mode for the time being.

    still doing veggies/fruit each day and same sups.

    ---------------------------------

    damn the lot of you are kicking ass!!!!!

    Week 1 Sept 21 = Success
    Week 2 Sept 28 = Success
    Week 3 Oct 5 = Success
    Week 4 Oct 12 = Success
    Week 5 Oct 19 = Success

    Ok this week was really wierd...I did all my nutrition and weight training but I went from like 233 to 236 for some reason mid week...maybe scale was being wierd? but then today I'm at 233 again

    Also I think 225 by oc 31st might have been an ambitious short term goal...230 is more realistic since its 10 lbs a month which is still 2.5 lbs/week

    I still think I can meet my long term goal of this thread 215 by Dec 7 though if I can drop 10-12 more in november and a couple during the first week of dec

    I probably could have lost 15 but I think the first week or so I was tweaking my diet and such and really didn't fall into a routin till 2nd week

    Great stuff dejavued....we are on the same week..good luck to you!

    I'm on the third day of week 8. :blank:

    Pefection is very hard for me, but failure is even harder, so I've been aiming low, and succeeding in meeting my goals,yay. I like being in challenges, because then I can't talk myself out of doing my workouts. Every night before I go to bed I know I HAVE to do what I said I was going to do. I've bent the rules as I've been going, which I wish I'd had the strength not to do, but it's still better than not having set the goal in the first place, or than completely abandoning the challenge. I wasn't strong enough to stick to the spirit of what I originally set out to accomplish, but at least I kept on going.

    I'd like to cut for about two weeks before Vegas to lose about 2-4 pounds, but I haven't calculated where that's going to put me in my schedule. I'm hoping it's not going to be in the middle of my home stretch to the 100 reps.

    :dance: :thanks: :dance:

    Perfect Week #10 done.
    8/17: 254.6
    10/24: 226.4 (using this date because it's before cheat-day bloat)
    That's 28.2 pounds dropped during the challenge.

    I'm gonna relax things a bit for a week. Then maybe I'll come back for some bonus rounds. ;)

    Who's still in? We need a roll call.
